I was relaxing in my tub this morning and was spending my time contemplating if having a small breakfast was better than no breakfast. You may say yes to this question, but I got to thinking, Sparks must have a reason for putting 25% of your daily calories under breakfast. That is when I got it , breakfast is the foundation for the day ahead. Without a strong foundation, you can't build on that foundation. I was almost always starving by lunch time and I could have a snack then, but then I would have to give up my night snack. So this is my new plan. I will try to stay as close to my calorie, carb, protein and fat ranges per meal instead of per day. That way I an not starving at night if I have used all of my calories early and I am not forcing my self to eat too much late in the day if I have not eaten enough by the evening. I guess I should take more baths. Pat

What a beautiful day. The leaves are near peek and the sun is shining through some high clouds. It was a beautiful day to go to the Columbus Zoo. I went with my husband, grandson and the girl across the street. The kids are both 6. I got in a nice healthy 11,000 steps. I love getting my excercise when it does not feel like excercise.

I go to the doctor every 3 months to have blood work and for the doctor to listen to my heart, get my weight and check my overall health. I saw her last on July12th. I lost 15 lbs according to her scale in less that 3 months. She is so happy with my blood sugars, heartbeat, blood pressure, 116/78 and my weight. I had my blood work done and should have the results in about a week. She thinks my A1C may be in the normal range this time. The best thing is, now I only have to go back every 4 months. That's progress. My doctor is going to log in to SP tonight. Seeing is believing.

My mother and step-father drove 500 miles from Syracuse NY to Columbus, Oh. They arrived on Friday at 2:00pm and left here at 6:20 am today (Sunday). They were here less than 48 hours. Well, the old folks wore me out. They wanted to go here, there and everywhere. I'm not used to being on the move that much. Well, they are safely home now and I can rest.

I had my first October weigh in this morning. I was so happy to have lost 3 pounds. I think because the weather has gotten cooler and it's less of an effort to get moving, that I have benefitted. I love raking leaves (no, I'm not coming over to do yours) and with the grass growing faster, I get to mow more often too. I love fall.
