well today I went on a nutrition sight where I learned a lot more about what I might be doing wrong so I am changing some things I eat. concentrated orange juice is full of sugar and in processing a lot of the fiber is taken out. 2. of course I had already learned to stay away from margarine and use real butter because lots of margarine's have trans fats. some new ones don't. 3. knowing sugar, fructose, dextrose, and concentrated fruit juice. this I too knew that's why I try to keep as much sugar out of my diet as I can. 4. know the difference between high carbs like bread, pasta that raise your blood sugar. choice good carbs like fruit and vegetables. Cortisol is brought on by stress and it makes you want to eat and stores fat in the belly, also makes you crave sugar. green tea is also good for you. 5. I learned soy milk, tofu and other soy products are generally modified when processed. 6. corn is also generally modified too, things that have corn in them like corn flakes, oats, etc . I am thinking differently about some of the things I eat. I did add soy milk to my shakes and I gained weight. if you follow theses changes that cause you to gain weight you will notice you are starting to lose instead. I am going to use this as a part of my new goals because I am at a stand still. hope this helped anyone who may be having trouble losing like I am.

well very rainy today so I am working on things that need to be decided on my medicare and life insurance. now that I am close to 65 they are hounding me, so I have an agency coming to help me figure things out. I hope to solve all this so I don't have to think about it any more. It is driving me nuts. trying to budget this in my bills messes up my plans to pay things off early like mortgage and truck payment. only two things big we still owe. well still working on trying to keep my sodium down. hopefully the few things I have found like, no salt peanut butter ,etc. will help out. guess I will work out on gazelle with my hand weights today foe exercise. take care today and keep up the good work.

well I walked over 350 acres of fairgrounds at the car show and I don't think I did that bad at eating while I was there the 3 days. if I don't lose some weight this week at weigh in I will really be discouraged. I don't know where I will venture from here. trying hard not to give up but all I am seeing is loose skin, that I am not liking because I have been heavy but I was firm and now I think I look awful. I am trying to be positive but it is really hard to see yourself like that. I will still make good food choices because I have learned a lot on spark people. I do feel so much healthier because I can do much more than I use too and breathe much easier when I walk, regular or uphill. well I will let you know after weigh in this week how I make out. hope everyone else is doing great and try to push passed these bumps we endure. I am really trying hard.

Syracuse n.y. car show consist of about 9000 cars on display to look at. and there were 400 vendors through out the 350 acres this show was layed out on. I couldn't even tell you how many miles of walking I did over 2 days covering this show. with two guys, my hubby and his friend so it was very hard to eat the way I should. I will start back tomorrow. only sweet I had was a small ice cream because it was so hot. each day I shared 1/2 a sausage grinder with my husband. dinner one night was grilled chicken breast with fries and coleslaw (only ate few of the fries) second night we had shared onion rings between the 3 of us then I had pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw. well klike I said I will start back tomorrow. hope everyone had great weekend.
