Yes, it's half an hour to supper time and I'm starved! I just ate 2 grapes and I feel like I can make it. Meat loaf and baked potato for supper with a nice fresh salad. Doesn't that sound good and safisfying

It has taken years to FINALLY acknowledge that I can NOT be trusted if I don't do these simple things to make it easier NOT to go crazy than it is for me to go wild with my snacks.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Those are some great ideas. I always keep some mini form of chocolate on hand for that purpose to reward myself at the end of the day. Last week I had bought one of those large bags of snack packs of chips after reading the calorie information wrong. I think I need to divide some of them up. Also, I like the idea of the apple and orange slices as they are almost a "no count" snack in that amount like carrots or celery or other raw veggies. Strawberries are another good one as you can eat one nice big strawberry knowing that it's good for you and only about as many calories as a life saver. Thanks!

That works for me and I keep MINI candy bars, kisses, and things of that sort around for JUST THAT REASON. I have also found that a SINGLE Brazil nut (has the entire daily dose of selenium in it) sometimes satisfies me. Also I keep apple and orange slices in a baggie that I can grab one or two or sometimes more when I am hungry but it doesn't do a lot of damage or calories. Put them in small separate serving packages - even my son has started doing it with his pretzels and tortilla chips - packing 1/2 and sometimes 1/4 servings instead of a WHOLE serving in each packet.

Another day and lets see what God has in store for us today! Personally I am feeling good and motivated again. My challenge for today will be those end of the day snacks; it seems like after I record everything for the day I should be able to eat goodies without it counting! Doesn't that make sense? I never eat more than one to 200 calories this way and it stays within my recommended calorie count, but not within my desired plan. I think last night if I had just given in and had that one small piece of chocolate, I could have avoided the other 150 calories. How does this work for the rest of you?

That is important to remember - we are never too old, too healthy, or too perfect to make improvements and to experience success.

Just starting week four! I saw my daughter yesterday for the first time in a couple of weeks and she complimented me on how healthy I was looking. She reminded of how bad I looked after a severe illness tow years ago with my arms and legs looking like sticks (with skin hanging on them) and struggling to relearn how to stand, then take a few steps with the assistance of two people, etc. Now my mobility is almost back to normal with the exception of some residual balance problems and I am fighting to get back to the weight I was at that time only this time slowly and with enough toning, etc to look good again. I think that illness took ten years off my life and aged my body by that much. I am slowly but surely reclaiming my health and strength. Isn't it amazing how two years after a serious illness a person can still continue to improve! That is my thought for today. Anyone with diabetes has a serious illness which is also taking years off their life and aging them prematurely. I congratulate all of you on this challenge for taking your life and your health back into your own hands!
