I have a big mouth last night I talked about feeling poor to the wrong person who shared it with my husband , which made him think I was calling him a jerk.

The fridge is full and so is the pantry. But she did not hear that,

Must get over my big mouth and realize things will get better.

Thanks, Linda! Good morning, everyone!

I feel great today....feel like I'm making progress. I set a goal to increase my walking to 5 days a week, with a minimum of 3 miles each time by the end of the month. Well, I've managed to do 3 miles for the last two days, so maybe by the end of the month I'll be able to make my minimum 3.5! I hope to start running part of it soon as well, but my puppy makes that difficult. She's a border collie, and likes to herd.....anytime I try to pick up the pace, she jumps and nips at me, trying to herd me back into line! We're working on that, and by next fall, I want we'll be able to run a 5k.

Have a great day, friends!

Wow! I just got my blood work results from last week. Two years ago, just before my surgery, my total cholesterol was 227. About a year after surgery, with 2 medicines, it came down to 139. Then I stopped one of the meds because of insurance issues, and it went up to 164. Then in February 2012, I began the Eat to Live program, and as of last week, my total cholesterol is down to 116! That's well BELOW the normal range of 125-200! Woohoo! I wonder if my cardiologist will reduce the one remaining cholesterol medicine?

Have a great day everyone!

My friend that was going to farmers market is stuck with grand kids that do not listen. It is driving us both crazy.

I go to the farmes market almost every Wed. Missed I think 3 in a year and a half. Keeps me active and eating healthy. I help the farmers pack up, but they will not let me lift more than 30 lbs.

Welcome, Music Mutt! How is the Eat to Live plan working for you? I have not given up all salt as Dr. Fuhrman recommends.....but I only use lite salt and only on a couple of things (watermelon and pop corn), so that doesn't de-rail me too much. I also consider myself one who eats vegan MOST of the time.....I enjoy a cheat now and then, or I could never stick to the plan. I saw my cardiologist in February and he got on my case about the weight. I started ETL in March, and when I saw the doctor again in August, he was thrilled with my progress. I still have a ways to go, but it's a plan I can live with long term, and that's what's important!

Hi LittleGulla. I'm spanking new to this team, haven't even introduced myself yet but I will. I had to reply to your post because I am also using "Eat to Live". Like you I resist snacking on the cashews, but it is relatively easy because I only buy raw cashews and use them in the recipes. Even the healthiest roasted nuts, such as no oil added, are a bit too tempting for me. I make light snacks of raw almonds or a very low sodium health mixture (expensive) of nuts and dried fruit. My sister-in-law found a mix with unbelievably healthy nutrition. Good luck. I agree though if the bag is too much temptation, better not to buy it. emoticon

Fantastic, it is sometimes a real eye opener what we think we can have and what is actually allowed.

I don't generally weigh and measure my food, either. I'm on the "Eat to Live" program, and as long as I eat the right things (lots of fruit and vegetables, no meat or dairy), I don't have to measure. However, I love to snack on cashews, and they are allowed on my plan, in moderation. So yesterday I measured out what I SHOULD allow myself in a day, and compared that to what I have ACTUALLY been allowing myself, and I have decided not to buy any more cashews. They are just far too tempting, and have WAY too many calories!

Gotta be honest here ... .my driver for guiding my nutrition is not based on my double bypass in 2009, but getting a Lap-Band in 2007. And having gotten down to goal (and hovering around it), I no longer weigh or measure food before meals. I *DO* watch what I eat in terms of carbs vs proteins vs fats, and I tend towards a low-fat, relatively lo-carb diet, but no need to me to weigh or measure.

Hi glad to have you.
Add veggies reduce cholesterol, add fruit, whole grains,etc.
I am trying to be healthier, too much family history in trying too hard to lose weight,

Grand mother was in tops and diet pills uppers and downers and surprise a heart attack.

Her sister (My great aunt ) was in the hospital having part of her intestine removed so she could not absorb as much, when she caught phnoma and died. She had gained with diet meals planed and delivered for her.

Iam 4'10" and 104 lbs
