Well, I only did 60 min of exercise today. I did 30 min walk dvd this morning, then the treadmill only lasted for 30 min this afternoon. My stomach was a little upset tonight, so I didn't go to the gym.

I talked with my youngest sister today and she is frustrated too with trying to lose weight. We both have problems with carbs and feeling hungry all the time. I know my biggest problem is staying on track with my craving empty carbs -- such as big weakness.

Day 46 of the 100 Day Challenge (Oct 4) -
My goals are:
1. Daily blog how I am doing [30/46] emoticon
2. Exercise for at least 30 min a day 6x a week and work up to 120 min a day.[36/46] emoticon 60 minutes
3. Drink 8-10 glasses a day.[46/46] , emoticon 10
4. Daily tract food and exercise.[40/46] emoticon
5. High protein breakfast, [36/46] emoticon
7. Cut back on snacking.[29/46] emoticon

    I just looked up a reference to the program Susie described above, and found this article, which seems pretty helpful:

    Carrie, when I started making sure I had protein-rich meals AND snacks like hard boiled egg, light string cheese, a little peanut butter on a celery stalk, etc. I gradually lost the cravings. There's an old diet plan called Dr. Abravanel's Body Type Diet that had a quizwhatsoever what kinds of foods you crave, and where your body typically stores extra weight, then determined which endocrine system "ruled" your body. For me, my body would crave sugar & caffeine for a quick energy boost (stimulating the thyroid), then crash a little later (and the cravings would be back), so I'd go for more sugar or more caffein. Protein gives long-lasting energy and let my thyroid rest. I'm not sure if you can find the diet anymore (think I loaned out my copy and didn't get it back) but you might check online to see if you can find the book or a blog or article.

    Congratulations on your 60 minutes, and on meeting nearly all your goals. Why is it we have so much trouble focusing on the good, instead of the one or two we might not be doing as well at. Is it because we expect to be perfect? emoticon

    Boy, I hear you there. I wouldn't be able to get through the day without my carbs. I'd for sure rather give up meat than give up my pasta.

    Portion control! Those are the only words of wisdom I can offer. Hang in there - honestly if you cut back for two weeks it DOES get easier! emoticon

    Your goals met are almost 100%. I know you can make it , Nothing wrong with snacks, just make them healthy. Have you tried a few raisins with almonds as a snack. This is my go-to snack when I feel empty or have a yearning for something sweet. emoticon emoticon

    60 minutes of exercise is awesome! and it looks like you are pretty well on track with your goals.
    You need to be patting yourself on the back for your accomplishments. You have done very well.

    Keep up the great work.
