I completely understand. I some times struggle with getting the "best bang for my buck" nutrition wise. I found that adding extra nutrients to track on my Nutrition tracker to be very helpful. I also keep track of Fiber, Sodium, Calcium, and Iron. They will show up as additions to your weekly progress table. It is definitely a learning process, but So and to the team!

Karen, I get it. Lowering your calories is just one step toward "eating right", but give yourself credit for that. I still work on balance, making sure I'm eating more vegetables, lowering my intake of sugar and sodium. It's little changes that add up!

Do you suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)? Check out the new team.
I joined about a week ago, and I am finally getting around to sending my first message. A group of us at work decided to finally get it together and get healthy. We started about 4 weeks ago. We have been exercising, and watching our calories. I have been real good about the exercise and lowering my calories, but I still struggle with eating right (if that makes sense). My goal is to lose 30 pounds overall. I haven't put a time limit on that, and I am okay with the fact that it isn't going to happen overnight.
