    7/16/2016 8:59:46 PM, by ZOEWMU

    Well, it's been 7 days. It's hard to say if it's been a success, weight wise. I weigh less than I did 7 days ago, about 6 pounds less. However, the week before, due to girly issues, I had gained a little over 5 pounds. so, I'm a few ounces less than I was the week before, but who knows if it was... Read more

  • The "D" word

    7/14/2016 11:12:48 AM, by CH64412010

    I have mentioned this a little bit in previous posts, but I have come to cringe when others ask, "how is your DIET going?","are you still on your DIET?", and "what kind of DIET are you on to lose the weight?" I wish we could teach outsiders to be a little more sensitive to us trying to make LIFESTYL... Read more

    Started a ketogenic eating plan yesterday to get my blood sugars under control. It's high fat, low carb, moderate protein.
