I know this is going to sound like a cop-out but it isn't.
I gave blood today and must eat. Today was complicated by me passing out, twice, and yes - I overate and would do it again if my health requires it.
I have absolutely no idea how many calories I ate today and will just estimate it at 3000 and be done with it. I will enter what I am sure of, and leave out what I cannot log.
It is only one day out of the rest of my life.
I post this only because I do know that there are people that check my logs - I want people to know this can happen and we can overcome any obstacles in our journeys.
Life will go on and it will return to normal tomorrow.
P.S. I am fine. I am relatively certain it wasn't my blood sugar dropping - I think it was my blood pressure which was a bit lower today before giving blood: 116/60 - I don't remember my bottom number ever being below 69.
After leaving the blood bank, I went to pay taxes and I was standing in line and I do have trouble standing for any length of time after donating blood. *sigh* Scared the devil out of my poor Ray.
P.P.S. So I am human - it seemed like a good time to eat that Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and that Butterfingers small bar!
In for a dollar, in for a pound, lol. Tomorrow is another day!
**1/8 - feeling much better and lost .3 lbs, lol.
**1/9 - ok, time to quit eating like a pig, lol. found that .3 and then some!!

I belong to Walker Tracker, a free online walking log with free competitions as well.
If interested, please use my name raylinstephens when joining, I get points!
Anyway, I was in a competition that I did not do well - to "not gain over the holidays" - and one of the members, STR, found an interesting article and I wanted to share it with everyone.
No, I am not going to regain my weight - but it does offer another perspective on how low you should go.
It is titled "Your prescription for 2011 is..." and it recommends a slightly higher BMI for better health.
Happy New Year - Happier New You!!
I don't like to make 2 blogs in one day - so I am just going to add on my GF's results to this blog - she got very happy positive reports back. Here is her email to me:
Happy New Year! Well, I had the surgery done on December 22nd and went home about 24 hours later. I was able to have the robotic surgery which was wonderful. I got out of bed right away and was hunting for somewhere to smoke. LOL (Never found anywhere) Thankfully, the cyst was benign. I was so relieved. I'm having problems with my bladder however. The doctor says he believes it's swollen and bruised and it's painful and I have to go potty CONSTANTLY . So, I've been happily going along taking vicodin daily. It's gonna be a long road to recovery I think but I'm so very thankful for all your prayers and best wishes. This whole situation made me realize how many dear friends I have and please know I'll always be there for all of you also.
Larry gets his cast off on the 18th. He can't wait. He's been so miserable. He started back to work today but is able to work from home.
Here's hoping that you all have a Healthy and Happy New Year. I love you all so much.
**Her DH Larry fell and broke his leg during all this "excitement" about the possible cancer! Thank you again for all your prayers. I will put this into it's own blog later, but not today.

Eating WHITE will not make you fat
Eating Whole Grains will NOT make you thin
This is NOT a diet - this is a "rest of your life lifestyle change"
This is NOT to be deprivation - this is a "rest of your life lifestyle change"
This is NOT supposed to hurt - this is a "rest of your life lifestyle change"
This IS a working program - we learn that we can eat anything in moderation.
No, not all of the time, but we can work anything we really want into our meal plan occasionally.
Everything is possible in moderation.
