I saw today where they were saying that trackers where becoming very popular. They are a great tool ,but some people were gaining weight. They talked about the Fitbit since they said it was the most popular.
The problem they said is that people would exercise, see that they had burned a lot of calories, the Fitbit would tell them to increase their calorie intake and they would think they could eat what they wanted. A banana is 100 calories, two sugar cookies are 100 calories so they are equal, right. NOT
The people at Fitbit said their website said that the calorie burn was an estaminet, because everyone is different and they never said to eat junk. You have to eat healthy no matter what.
Spark People tells us all the time to eat healthy and chose the banana over the cookies. This is just a reminder for those of use that have been around for awhile and maybe some new people need to be told.

Some people study greek mythology. I study Norwegian mythology. My cats name as Freyja and she crossed the rainbow bridge last night. Fregga is the early spelling of Freyja.
In Honor of Frigga
"Shiningg Lady of Asgard,
at Your command worlds are born,
at Your nod and tender smile, life burst into being.
Valiant Goddess, ruthless foe, cunning Queen,
Illuminate your wyrd.
Strengthen our hamyngja.
Make us fruitful in all things, like the barley and flax
that is your gift.
Nourish our souls, God-Mother,
Pour forth from Your cornucopia of abundance
and in return we will give You our devotion,
our praise, our industry.
Holy Mother of all life, foremost amongst the Asynjur,
bestow upon us Your wisdom.
Make our hearts fertile fields for Your bounty, and
on Your spindle of shimmering starlight,
Weave for us a joyous fate."

I have always told new people to start where they are.
On the Todays show they just showed a man that lost 550 pounds, no surgery, no weight loss pills. Well he said he just had some excess skin removed. It took him 10 years and he is 220 at 26 now. My math says that means he was a 77o at 16.
This guy was saying when he started his exercise program his intense cardo was moving to the front of his seat and standing up and sitting down. Then it was how many steps away from his chair could he take.
You start where you start.

I saw on Good Morning America where they throw out a challenge. For 10 days starting next Monday, no added sugar or sugar substitutes. This includes things like processed foods and soda, but not things like apples, bananas, and pears unless you add sugar to them.
They said sugar has the same affect on your brain as cocaine and sugar substitutes do too. They are additive.
DH is diabetic and we cook without sugar. We use fruit when we need to sweeten things. Applesauce is one of our favorites. Just remember that you have to adjust the liquid if using a fruit with a high water content.
