I decided it is time to take an inventory of my nutrition and make some change since my body is thinking about hibernating as the cooler weather is coming and I'm also not being able to play tennis as much due to the weather. I'm going on the "Wheat Belly Plan" from Dr. William Davis. It is wheat-free, low carb and high good fat. I am down 34 pounds in the past 3 1/2 years but I still have at least 20 more to go.

I took the summer off from tracking but I'm back. In the mean time ...

I took the summer off from tracking but I'm back. In the mean time I played tennis 6 to 7 times a week and ended up gaining 5 pounds but lost 1 inch at my hips. 1 inch at my waist and 1/2 inch at my chest. I didn't let the weight gain bother me because I knew I was doing good for my body as a whole.

My blood pressure is normally 115/65 now instead of 120/80 or more. My fasting blood sugars are now 85 to 90 instead of 115. My total cholesterol is finally below 200 without any deadly statins, and my HDL has gone from 32 up to 55 which is the best it has ever been.

Hi Judy,
Hope you're doing well and looking forward to the summer. Still very much winter here, probably 2 ft of snow in the back yard.

Good to hear from you! I did well as far as the holiday food, the problem has been more with getting my butt off the couch. But I recommitted to the 10-minutes-a-day-no-excuses concept and I just completed seven exercise days in a row! Now two of those days were only 15 minutes, but two of them were an hour, so I'm pretty happy with it.

If I ate wheat I think I would go back to farting alot!

Hi Judy, great to hear from you and glad that you had a good holiday except for the wheat. I don't actually get sick, just feel bloated. I definitely feel better when i avoid it.

Stay out of the cold weather... I would definitely like to go away for part of the winter, but Peter isn't interested.

Take care, and thanks for writing.
Gail
