Still trying. It's amazing that I still have not reached my goal seriously, I know how, just won't be consistent. I annoy myself 😜. I have been weighing EVERYTHING and tracking EVERYTHING. I use the Lose it! app for tracking, I think they have a better database for food.
But it's working. My motivation is I'm turning 50 in May. I have to get my weight under control, I just can't be unhealthy AND overweight AND old. The age I can do nothing about, but I can control my weight, and give my body healthy foods and keep it moving.

I have some disabilities from the strokes so my exercise is somewhat limited to mostly walking.

    In my head I know organic is better for you ... but my wallet just can't see it.

    Organic bell peppers $3 each ... non-organic $1 each!!! Hmmm.

    Are you doing the cardio as Hailey prescribes ... only 2 days and they are back to back.

    Hi Cheryl, Glad to find SOMEONE else from Osceola. I'm on the exact opposite side of Kissimmee from you. Over near St. Cloud. As far as breakfast drinks, I like to have my vanilla whey shake blended with berries. Just picked a ton of blackberries and I honestly think that adding the berries is the reason I was able to drop 4 # in 2 weeks.
