Just joined the winter 5% challenge. I did not lose any weight on the fall 5% challenge, but I did improve my habits. This time I am going to try really hard.
I would like to find a small group of about four people, where we would share our food and exercise trackers. The way I see it is we would check each day on each others trackers and send email comments. Or spark page comments, or a goodie, maybe decide on just one form to use between us. I know it would be impossible to do every day, but if there was a small group of 3 or 4, then the likelihood that one person was available would be improved.
Just like if you have a walking group of 3 or 4, one person can miss, and you can still go out. But if there is only one person, and they get sick, the old inertia and excuses set it, and you think, oh, I will skip it today.
Is anyone interested? Maybe will post something like this somewhere. Not sure how to do it. Not sure if even I can follow through. This is in the thinking stages.
We are all children at heart. If I knew someone would be proud of me that I skipped that extra candy, or if I know ahead of time that someone would see that I had that third glass of wine, well, I would be more likely to not do it!!!

Does anyone know if there is something for sure that can slow down arthritis? Mine is just getting worse and worse, and I am really scared. It is in my hands, my toes, my knees of course. Advil does relieve the pain. It really started a few years ago when I noticed a finger getting crooked. I asked my doctor and she said, nothing can be done. I do not want any quack stuff, but I wonder if things like coffee every day make it worse? I just wonder. I know I can go to the arthritis websites, but some of them are just to sell stuff, and others are people who have pretty far out beliefs about foods and supplements. I know people move to Arizona for their arthritis, but I am not able to do that!!!!

Yesterday had only 1800 calories which is a big deal for me, as I usually have 2200.
The secret is sushi and edamame and tea. i went out to dinner with friends and this is what they had. (skinny friends) Wow, do your peers influence you or what? If I ate like this all the time, with them, I would be my target weight.
Normally, I have wine or beer and that really adds the calories up. But no way would I order wine when they were ordering tea.
I was starved still after the first sushi, and so were they, so we ordered more, but really what was it? some fish and rice??? very low calorie.
I also went for another four mile walk. I had a goal, which was to meet these friends for a lecture on the Maharaja exhibit at the museum. I like walking with a goal and now I am looking for things to do. To tell you the truth I was not that interested in the lecture. It is very hard for me to sit for any period of time on folding chairs in drafty auditoriums!!! The only reason I went was to have a goal for walking!!! But it did turn out to be interesting. I found out Lord Mountbatten's wife was having an affair with Nehru back in 1947 and the whole Britain and India thing blew out of the water. Fascinating.

I am on a streak recording my food intake, but every evening I am shocked at how low the calcium and fiber is. Duh...........I did not realize I can check it right there on the food tracker page at any time of the day.
So, my goal is to check it during the day, and make modifications accordingly, like drink a glass of nonfat milk, or eat an apple.
