ONEKIDSMOM's SparkPeople Blog ONEKIDSMOM's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Non-scale goals Yesterday, in STRONGDAWG's blog, she mentioned one of the perks of her recent weight loss efforts: her wedding and engagement rings have become loose, and she contemplates getting spacers to add to them. Boy, did that trigger memories. Link to her blog, here (go just to see the muscle shot, btw, she looks GREAT!): <BR> <BR> <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6253913 </link> <BR> <BR> I present here a memory minder: <BR> <BR> In 1989, I lost si... Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:18:04 EST Going to be a quickie The entry gate to the finish line next May... here's a motivator on the road to 26.2, huh? <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> For today: <BR> <BR> * The bag is packed, remember to eat what's in it, not some random junk that might appear in the day! <BR> <BR> * Remember to go to recess... it keeps you sane throughout the workday. <BR> <BR> * Remember to breathe, prioritize, and delegate! <BR> <BR> Now let's al... Wed, 19 Oct 2016 07:54:00 EST The road to 26.2 - week 3 begins <img src=""> <BR> <BR> It's Fall, but believe it or not, training for a Spring marathon has already begun. Counting backwards from the Lincoln Marathon Date (May 7, 2017), my target to finally check a full marathon off my bucket list... there is a 30 week training plan on the Galloway "Master Schedule". That would map this week to week 3. <BR> <BR> Because I also have a HM on November 7th, the plan is kind of c... Tue, 18 Oct 2016 07:14:06 EST The difference between puttering and a cave day... A full cave day (for me) is often accompanied by minimal productivity... get just the essentials done. A puttering around the house day is an attitude shift that allows for new/different projects. My puttering yesterday and today included snipping up "49 sides" of t-shirts, to ship off. I put them in the back hatch of Dexter and drove to the nearest "Pack N Ship" (UPS Store), and they are on their way to Project Repat to be turned into a quilt. I won't see the result until January, at the... Sun, 16 Oct 2016 15:39:22 EST The painters work on Saturday And they are doing a bit more than painting... some carpentry, some caulking... all making progress. So when I got home from my Galloway group run this morning, I found that the guy who is doing the bulk of the work was hard at it, on a cloudy humid day, warm for this time of year. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Detail of the wood work being added, to stop the deteriorization of the bottom of the siding, and t... Sat, 15 Oct 2016 14:10:28 EST If one good day is a victory... And it is... and two good days are the sticks to rub together to ignite the fire of motivation... and they are, what are three good days in a row? <BR> <BR> Yep, three days back in harness... cautionary tale to not get cocky uppermost on the Beck cards... for some time to come. <BR> <BR> All of those blog challenge topics masked what was going on with food throughout September, because I didn't write about it much, but looking at the point weight monthly averages, you can see that dip and... Fri, 14 Oct 2016 07:56:26 EST Rubbing two good days together to ignite the Spark Yep, it's about Spark streaks. Two days back in harness. Image comes to mind of a girl scout (or boy scout, if you prefer that image) rubbing two sticks together to start a fire. <em>529</em> <BR> <BR> The deal is, given when my little extra eating episode happened (following a 12.55 mile run/walk), it only took two days back in harness to be back at a point weight center of the range this morning. That's encouraging. <BR> <BR> Looking at the graphs, I can see that I have the classi... Thu, 13 Oct 2016 07:59:41 EST Unleashed Blog 5 One thing I truly love about the Beck re-boots so many of my Spark blogging friends do, periodically? So much mutual CREDIT being shared! Those giving me credit yesterday for the quick catch and re-leashing of "the beast"? Golden. Thank you. <BR> <BR> This bit especially for JEANKNEE who was pondering over nutrition and running for those who have issues with carbs... fear not there are plenty of runners out there with "non-standard" diets, and in fact the inventors of Whole 30 were in fa... Wed, 12 Oct 2016 07:57:36 EST Unleashed Blog 4 Yep, that leash has to get put back on. At least as far as "having a plan" and "following the plan" is concerned. <BR> <BR> Between the funeral and running with others, I talked too much. I'm a nervous talker. And Sunday afternoon - evening, and Monday afternoon - evening the eating was what was unleashed. Mostly once again going after proteins and carbs, but craving sweet. Quite a bit of healthy fats (flax seed meal). Oil-popped popcorn (EVOO). I think the in-workout nutrition gave m... Tue, 11 Oct 2016 07:51:06 EST Unleashed Day 3 Maybe I should have been leashed this morning. The plan was for 12.5 miles, trying out the new recommended run/walk intervals of 30 seconds / 30 seconds, aiming for an overall pace of 12:35 per mile. This was what the Galloway formula came up with based on my 8:09 magic mile. <BR> <BR> It was chilly this morning as we started, pre-sunrise. I was trying out my new warmer running jacket (actually it's a cross-country ski jacket), but I had taken the lighter pair of gloves recognizing there ... Sun, 9 Oct 2016 14:29:12 EST Unleashed Day 2 Unremitting fan-girl unleashed today. I got home following going to a co-worker's mother's funeral to live stream the Ironman World Championship at the 140.6 mile distance, being held right now, as I type. The pros are out on the run course, having already swum 2.4 miles, and biked 112 miles, now running a marathon. <BR> <BR> I am stalking the gal who I blogged about in my race report of the Major League Triathlon in August. <link><BR>urnal_individua... Sat, 8 Oct 2016 20:03:02 EST Barb's blog unleashed So I got done with the 31 day blog challenge, what comes next? <BR> <BR> The thought that started rumbling around in my brain before I got out of bed this morning was "the furnace kicked in!" The low temperature last night dipped below 40F, and the furnace had just had its pre-check for the season last weekend... and it kicked in like a champ. It felt good to be in the warm pj's, snuggled under the covers and I pushed the snooze button after doing my ritual weigh-in and taking my thyroid... Fri, 7 Oct 2016 07:53:13 EST Blog Challenge Day 31: It's The Last Day of the Challenge: Write About Your Favorite And Least Favo Made it! Link to original list of topics, for anybody interested - I've been posting it every frew blogs in the series... last chance: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> This one's hard because I always have a ton of favorites, and tend to suppress the ones I'm not fond of! <BR> <BR> So, to begin: favorite this year has to be August's USAT Age Group National Championships in Omaha. LOTS of memories wrapped up in that 4... Thu, 6 Oct 2016 07:53:48 EST Day 30: Free Day - write about anything you choose Since I get to choose, it's about time for another "State of the Maintenance" blog. After all, October, 2010 is when I first settled into the 120's "for real". Yesterday on Facebook there was this game that would purportedly pick out your four "most beautiful" pictures (from the four most recent years), pictures you had shared. Interestingly, the four it picked were all of me being active and grinning like the smile would split my face: <BR> <BR> <img src=" Wed, 5 Oct 2016 07:59:46 EST Blog Challenge Day 29: Write About Something/Someone You Can't Live Without Thinking about today's topic, I was responding to SWEDE_SU's blog on the same topic: "when one gets to 'this age' there is not a whole lot we can't imaging living without. We have learned that life goes on, no matter what, and the things we cannot live without are mental! If we have a tactile representation which is part of that mental thing we need, it is morphed and replaced. Sometimes that replacement of the representation takes some time. Sometimes it happens without our even noticin... Mon, 3 Oct 2016 08:01:50 EST Blog Challenge Day 28: Write About Your Favorite Memory I'm doing a second Blog Challenge day today... just because... <BR> <BR> When you're nearly 64 years old, it's hard to pick "just one"... two come to mind, and they might sound pretty classic: <BR> <BR> First up, in chronological order: My wedding day... when poised to walk down the aisle, and my mother stood up. This is a seminal moment in every bride's life, when the baton is passed... yes, I know it's old-fashioned, and culturally anti-feminist movement, and all that... but when the mo... Sun, 2 Oct 2016 12:42:25 EST Blog Challenge Day 27: Write A Letter To All Of Your Followers On SparkPeople Dear Fellow Sparklers, yes, you! <BR> <BR> I normally say I write my blogs for myself, and in fact, I do. The blog challenges are a little different, because the topics have been given, and I'm writing in response to those topics, which makes all of them a little like a letter "to whom it may concern"... which is pretty much true of blogs in general. <BR> <BR> So, if I set out to write a letter to y'all, what kind of letter would it be? There are many reasons to correspond (write letter... Sun, 2 Oct 2016 09:19:43 EST Blog Challenge Day 26: Explain Why You Chose Your Username I am getting near the end, so it's about time I tossed in a link to the list of topics blog: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> Just in case somebody reading might want to start their own calendar month of blogs (if they have not already), since it's October 1. <BR> <BR> I know some of my old Beck buddies are doing a Beck Pink re-boot starting today... but I'll finish my 31 blog challenge topics before I decide whether ... Sat, 1 Oct 2016 10:40:04 EST Blog Challenge Day 25: One Fictional Character Oh, my goodness: If You Could Meet/Have One Fictional Character Fall In Love With You, Who Would It Be? <BR> <BR> I thought this would be tough, because I read a lot. I also watch TV, mostly Netflix, and have a wide movie history as well. <BR> <BR> I was pretty sure I would not want a fictional character in love with me. But meet one? That could be intriguing! <BR> <BR> Fantasy / future world characters are "out", for me... not a lot of help in the real world. So that rules out the ... Fri, 30 Sep 2016 07:42:30 EST Bonus blog - links to prior Pebble Jar blogs This may be the first one, from December 2012: <BR> <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5170828 </link> <BR> <BR> And then they became a year-end blogging tradition, here, mixed with my year of scaring myself graph, from December 2013: <BR> <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5577436 </link> <BR> <BR> From December 2014: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5841874 </... Thu, 29 Sep 2016 20:06:03 EST Blog Challenge Day 24: Write About Your Day I've been MIA for a couple of days. I looked at this topic and started a couple of times... then tossed it out... just wasn't feeling the topic. <BR> <BR> Whoever doesn't feel a simple topic like "write about your day"? Well, that would have been me, a couple of days in a row. On Monday after work, I was contemplating the dichotomy between: <BR> <BR> I could write about the routine day "my day"... which would be boring. <BR> <BR> I could write about the day I'd just had... which would a... Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:53:22 EST Blog Challenge Day 23: Write About One Of Your Guilty Pleasures. I've seen several folks blog about a guilty pleasure as a food... chocolate, or some other thing we might feel is a "bad" food, and even how we control/manage it. Someone mentioned manicures and pedicures (a great pleasure, to my way of thinking, and a rarity in my case, but I consider it more reward than "guilty"!) <BR> <BR> What's mine? Big Brother. A dorky reality TV show, that gets put on by CBS every Summer. Pure psychological experiment, with some hokey competitions tossed in, so... Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:41:04 EST Blog Challenge Day 22: What Is Your Style? Pick your favorite definition of style: from the literal "1 n sharp, slender, pointed instrument used by the ancients in writing on wax tablets, 2 any of several devices similar in shape or use (a pen, an etching needle, a phonograph stylus..." We get all the way to 6 before we get to "the current, fashionable way of dressing, speaking, acting, etc." <BR> <BR> I kind of like "9 sort, kind, variety, type"... <BR> <BR> So, what *is* my style? <BR> <BR> By definition 1 & 2, it's my keybo... Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:28:31 EST Blog Challenge Day 21: Write About Your Most Embarrassing Moments Moments. Plural. <BR> <BR> My most embarrassing moments, without getting overly specific, have generally had to do with not being "normal", with not knowing the social norms, with failure to be perfect in that foreign arena known as human relationships, or with being unable to control my own body. <BR> <BR> To more specifics: <BR> <BR> Wetting pants at school when I was "old enough to know better", but afraid to excuse myself. I was deeply ashamed, and have since learned to duck out wh... Sat, 24 Sep 2016 11:03:01 EST Blog Challenge Day 20: What Are Your Hobbies? Why Do You Like Them? Hmmm... do I have hobbies? I normally think of hobbies as "crafts", something that produces something... things like knitting, or scrap-booking, or photography... playing a musical instrument. When I think of it that way, I scratch my head and question whether I even have any. But the Webster's tells me a hobby is simply: "something that one likes to do or study in one's spare time; favorite pastime or avocation". <BR> <BR> Well, then... Sparking is a hobby! Running is a hobby! Triathl... Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:51:10 EST Blog Challenge Day 19: Who is your idol? I write about my "heroes and sheroes" all the time. Don't want to repeat that... you know I am a huge fan-girl of Sister Madonna Buder, Leanda Cave, Mirinda Carfrae, etc. (all triathletes). But let's talk about the daily people whose lives I'd like to emulate. <BR> <BR> STRONGDAWG named the founder of her Focolare movement, a faith community to which she belongs. She also named an athletic model in Diana Nyad (one of mine, too). <BR> <BR> But I look at people who may not be famous... who... Thu, 22 Sep 2016 08:04:35 EST Blog Challenge Day 18: Write About Your Favorite Book, Movie, Song, Food, Color, Animal OK, short and sweet topics, but being me, things get complex: <BR> <BR> Favorite Book - if I had to pick ONE, as in to take to a desert island, and have ONLY one book for the rest of my life, I think it would have to be the Bible. Not because it is a work of religion, but because of its wealth of stories, poetry, and wisdom. But I read widely and "current favorite" can change on a daily basis: Love the John Grisham style legal thrillers. David Baldacci. The occasional romance. Some sci... Tue, 20 Sep 2016 07:29:55 EST Blog Challenge Day 17: Write About Someone/Something You Miss Does anybody NOT know I miss my dog? Diamond had soul-filled almond-shaped eyes that would melt your heart, wrapped in the sleek athletic body of a German Short-haired Pointer. She would rest her head on my knee as I'd sit here at the computer, and bump my mouse wrist when she wanted attention. <BR> <BR> She was my running companion back when my son was 6 or 7 years old. She became HIS running companion years later. She had horrible separation anxiety due to being trained into it by my e... Mon, 19 Sep 2016 19:45:09 EST Blog Challenge Day 16: What Is Your Biggest Fear? Haven't posted the link to the topics recently, but here it is, in case someone wants to borrow this list of 31 blog topics (originally written for December, for another online social media outlet, and clearly for youngsters navigating the passage to adulthood... but we've warped it to Sparkpeople and are having a blast adapting it to our own generation!) <BR> <BR> <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> So... what is my bigge... Sun, 18 Sep 2016 17:15:42 EST Blog Challenge Day 15: Write About Your First Kiss A boring topic, to my way of thinking. We all had one, or more kisses that we considered "firsts". <BR> <BR> My first childhood kiss (a "movie star kiss", per the kisser), was delivered by a co-worker of my Dad when I was pre-double digits in age. I had a little crush on this guy, he didn't do anything outré, mind you, it was a chaste kind of "movie star kiss" such as a little girl would get as "romantic" but hardly sexual in content! With all the "inappropriate" commentary in the news th... Sat, 17 Sep 2016 19:53:47 EST Race Report - Harvest Moon Hustle We interrupt the Blog Challenge (I wasn't doing them on the numbered dates anyway and am a few days behind) to bring you yesterday's adventure: <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I had never done this race before. It's billed as "Fast, Flat, and In the Dark". Which implies I am going to get there EARLY, and I did... this shot was taken about 5 p.m., and the race doesn't start until 7, but I had to find the place,... Sat, 17 Sep 2016 08:12:25 EST Blog Challenge Day 14: My favorite Holiday and why I have to admit I love the inner meanings of holidays... but not the external trappings that have become WAY too commercialized. Holidays mark the passage of time through the years... and sometimes it seems to me that they are flying by way too fast, and I miss a few, my head spinning with how fast time flies. <BR> <BR> Holidays have meaning. If I had to pick one favorite, it would be Thanksgiving... it has been so ever since I was a kid. Guess I was a bit of an odd duck that way, as most... Fri, 16 Sep 2016 07:11:12 EST Blog Challenge Day 13: Write About Something That Happened To You This Week. I thought this one would be easy... but then again... it's what I do all the time... write about stuff that happens in my week. But when I parse out "happened to you" and somehow can't get the "young people" view out of my head... I have to be me and twist it a bit: <BR> <BR> Do things really happy TO me? Or do they happen AROUND me? And does what I do influence those happenings... mainly what I write about is what I have done or am feeling... with some comments about the context in which... Thu, 15 Sep 2016 07:31:23 EST Blog Challenge Day 12: Who Are Your Best Friends? And why, of course! <BR> <BR> Link to challenge topic blog: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> I've actually been dreading this topic. I don't want to repeat my answer to the Day 3 topic: Who Are You Closest To? (Explain.) And yet, when I think about my patterns of "friendship" a lot of the question comes down to how one defines friendship itself... how close is close enough to be a friend? What about a *best* friend?... Wed, 14 Sep 2016 08:02:48 EST Blog Challenge Day 11: What Is Your School Status? Here's another one that made me think the topic list was designed for youngsters... those still in high school or college. The hint after it says: Are you a nerd, jock, prep, bully, etc. If you don't have school, or are home-schooled, talk about what you would want your status to be. <BR> <BR> It's been a long time since I've been in a standard classroom. So my school status today is as a graduate. But this is focused more on the social group you fit in with, on your social behavior, so l... Tue, 13 Sep 2016 06:55:47 EST Blog Challenge Day 10: Free Day. (Write about anything you choose.) Link to the list of 31 topics: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> Today is a "free day"... so you get the grab bag of rattling thoughts! <BR> <BR> Yesterday I got the classic "son check in with mom" weekly phone call. He vented about stuff in his life. I vented (or bubbled) about stuff in mine. I may have mentioned the odd phenomenon of becoming "recognized" within the running community, being capped by yesterday real... Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:49:12 EST Blog Challenge Day 9: What Is One Thing You Use Every Day? I've been writing this blog in my head since somewhere in mile one of this morning's Buffalo Run. The Buffalo Run is a five mile race set on the hills of Pioneers Park in Lincoln, Nebraska. It is the Lincoln Track Club's longest-running sponsored race... this was its 40th year. There was a lot of hype associated with this 40th running. They were giving gift certificates to Lincoln Running Company to every 40th runner across the line. The Road Runners Club of America named it their one "n... Sun, 11 Sep 2016 16:44:47 EST Blog Challenge Day 8: How Did You Discover SparkPeople? The challenge description link 31 days worth! <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> I know I've written this tale before, but... I used to blog over on LiveJournal, under a different ID. I had a friend over there who started a "Healthy Lifestyle" challenge journal, and she recommended for tracking. At the time I was using a PC app that was in the process of converting to the Web, and I ended up with having t... Sat, 10 Sep 2016 12:03:34 EST Blog Challenge Day 7: What Type Of Music Do You Favor? Here's another great "depends on the day" topic! I have a wide range of music that I listen to or shape into the background of my life (i.e. I hear it in my head, even if it's not playing). Love of music seems pretty natural. In my case it dates back to Broadway tunes my mother had on LP vinyl (remember LP vinyl) and music that was background to stories on albums (Peter and the Wolf, anyone?) or from movies (Star Wars, anyone?). Mom would make up lyrics that she couldn't remember. <BR> ... Fri, 9 Sep 2016 07:49:27 EST Blog Challenge Day 6: What Is Your Favorite Quote? This one is like the old Lay's Potato chips commercial: betcha can't pick just one! <BR> <BR> I have many. But today, I'll just leave this one with you... it's among my top collection: <BR> <BR> "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily." - Zig Ziglar <BR> <BR> I picked this one because I've been having a rough time with motivation for about five days now... yep, started Saturday... I think the removal of those volunt... Thu, 8 Sep 2016 07:30:36 EST Blog Challenge Day 5: What Are Your Obsessions? Bwuhahahahahah! Obsessions? As one might guess, I have rotating obsessions. I've obsessed about various and assorted things since childhood! <BR> <BR> Let's see... reading... 5 books a day when that was what the library would let me check out with my very first library card. I went through probably the entire children's section and even took on a few that were WAY beyond me... 2nd grade, would you believe "Ivanhoe"? Cut my teeth on biographies for kids: Marie Curie, Joan d'Arc... power... Wed, 7 Sep 2016 07:42:08 EST Blog Challenge Day 4: Write About One Of Your Biggest Secrets. Secrets? What are those? <BR> <BR> Seriously, most of you here on Spark know my secrets. <BR> <BR> I suppose this one can be inferred, but I don't often voice it. And being me, I'm going to back into it. <BR> <BR> Let me start by saying that I fear being judged. This kind of goes hand in hand with being a people pleaser... something in me wants everyone to like me. So I tend to keep my mouth shut when people express strong opinions. This leads many folks to assume I agree with the... Tue, 6 Sep 2016 07:18:22 EST Blog Challenge Day 3: Who Are You Closest To? Link to the blog listing the topics: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> This one's easy for me. And matches some of what earlier bloggers on the topic included. My son's experience in the military taught him what it was like to have brothers and sisters, even though he is an "only child", and I thank God every day that he has them. Because the closest relationship among human beings on the planet is the sibling tie. ... Mon, 5 Sep 2016 09:25:08 EST Blog Challenge Day 2: Your Dream Profession Link to the blog listing the topics: <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229498 </link> <BR> <BR> Given some of the later topics and the instructions associated, I concluded that the challenge topics were written for young people still in school. I can envision all kinds of fantasies of the young, looking forward to their careers, the ones they are going to school to get into, to start. <BR> <BR> As a person with 305 working days to go before ha... Sun, 4 Sep 2016 06:56:26 EST Blog Challenge Day 1: Write Ten Facts About Yourself. Per the instructions: You cannot do simple facts such as "I like cheese" and "Red is my favorite color." They must be long and you must explain each fact. <BR> <BR> OK, this takes some thought - <BR> <BR> 1) I grew up in what many people would consider to be a "cult", and did not have my first full non-pregnancy related physical until I was 54 years old. I was the last of my siblings to leave said religion, being mommy and daddy's "good little girl", and having married another in the same... Sat, 3 Sep 2016 17:42:13 EST STRONGDAWG has challenged us! A 30 day blogging challenge... how perfect... for those of us who sometimes stare at the page and wonder what to write about! <BR> <BR> Here are the 30 topics: <BR> Day 1: Write Ten Facts About Yourself. (You cannot do simple facts such as "I like cheese" and "Red is my favorite color." They must be long and you must explain each fact.) <BR> Day 2: Your Dream Profession.

I have to pick adventurous spots... like last Saturday, on the beach, running from the water to the bike transition. And... just to make things interesting, there was a person with a camera, capturing my sand-encrusted transition from swim to bike! Being me, and since I wasn't really HURT (oh, heck, even had I been, be honest, Barb), I share them with you. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <img src="http://p... Fri, 2 Sep 2016 07:48:34 EST I was GOING to take a current photo... but (of the yard, not me)... BUT, when I got home from work, the volunteer trees and weeds were already gone! So the current one would look a lot like yesterday's offering of two years ago. <BR> <BR> Now the big puzzle is WHICH of the two tree services did the deed? They had both said "by the end of next week". Since I didn't talk to a real person to cancel of the one, had to leave messages (and left them on two different cell numbers)... well, you can see the conundrum. I expected the respo... Thu, 1 Sep 2016 07:41:40 EST Nagging Unfinished TaskS - NUTS I admit it, I am a procrastinator. Particularly about things that I feel pressured to do for the sake of "appearances"... home maintenance being one of them. My roof has been replaced, but not my gutters and downspouts yet. I haven't called the guy back, because I know I need to have the volunteer trees cleared out again (had this done two years ago or so, but they are back in spades). Photo from the last time I had this done. Don't have the current one, but you don't want to see it! <BR... Wed, 31 Aug 2016 07:55:28 EST The recovery script... building in my head Even though my experience is more anecdotal than the scientific approach that JEANKNEE is pristine in tracking, it helps me get closer to the solution of my own "experiment of ONE". <BR> <BR> I have not been tracking food for several months, but do MOSTLY stick to same foods and quantities over the course of a given week. I do monitor weight, daily, and track with averaging / rounding, etc. Six years of maintenance with this "control" gives you a pretty good idea of what your diet (i.e. wh...
