    Hello!

    I am jumping on the exercise/diet wagon on January 1. Having broken and crushed some bones, the exercise is a challenge. This week I am doing my fasting blood work and will be working on those numbers also.

    The diet end of it is going to involve vegetables and fruits for breakfast, lunch and work snacks. A sensible meal at night. (might have to cut out the foie gras)

    How do you feel about the BMI scale?

    Good luck. I don't think I could take the strain of a diet and exercise.

    Some of my motivation will be to look at my customers. Believe me, it is right out of the "Krispy Creme Calender Girls".

    Different results for different people. Some do better with lower fat and other with lower carbs. Don't cut out too much fat. It is what will keep you satisfied. I try to keep fat calories below 20% and don't rely on set number of grams. Nailed it right at 20% today. That means plenty of energy and no hungry feeling.

    Go here from your home computer:

    All Things Food and Diet - FatSecret


    Here is what I ate today:

    http://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?...4967&id=394345



    Breakfast 6 - 2.00 26.00 7.00 160
    1 serving Instant Oatmeal Weight Control - Maple and Brown Sugar 6 - 2.00 26.00 7.00 160

    Lunch 37 240 30.00 69.00 99.00 930
    3 servings Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Fillets 13 180 4.50 3.00 72.00 330
    3 servings Sliced Sharp Cheddar 10 60 21.00 - 15.00 240
    3 servings Soft and Smooth Wheat Hamburger Buns 14 - 4.50 66.00 12.00 360
    Add Item

    Dinner 22 10 2.00 109.00 23.00 550
    2 servings Fat Free Milk (with Omega-3s & Vit E) 9 10 2.00 28.00 20.00 220
    3 servings Frosted Flakes 13 - - 81.00 3.00 330
    Add Item

    Snacks / Other 27 20 16.00 46.00 5.00 665
    1 serving Sara Lee Sweet Potato Pie Slice 14 20 16.00 46.00 5.00 340
    5 servings Whiskey 13 - - - - 325
    Add Item


    Day Summary:
    92%
    of RDI*
    (2305 calories)

    * Based on your RDI of 2500 calories (30 Sep 10)
    Calorie Breakdown:
    Carbohydrate (43%)
    Fat (20%)
    Protein (37%)




    Those 3 chicken breast samiches were eaten every two hours starting at 10am. With my Droid I can scan bar codes on food packages and most restaurants are listed in the app. I also add in any exercise and daily activities that can offset any food intakes. This has resulted in slow steady weight loss. 3 inches in my waist in as many months.

    Ok, Wednesday has come and gone. I am not happy with weigh in and will be making a few adjustments. I consider myself lucky that there are not any veggies or fruit that I do not like.

    On a positive note. The oncologist is happy with the ct scan and asked if I wanted to "stretch out" my appointments. I was thinking he was going to say 6 months or so.... no, 4 months with another scan scheduled. grrrrrrr !!!
