Never had a truffle in my life. Are they good? Are they high in calories? What kind of colon surgery did you have? I'm being awfully nosey today, huh?

It figures, I post my food tracker then I have the worst food day! Oh well, I'm not perfect. I even noticed the scale rose this morning. Oh well, I'm about to have a stressful week so I'm prepared to see alittle change in the eating and the scale. I have to go for blood work today and having a colonoscopy Tues (annual follow-up to my colon surgery)...its nerve racking. I'll try to just go with the flow. Those truffles are hiding in the bottom of my refrigerator's veggie bin away from hubby & son...stored away for emergencies.

Hello gals!

I changed my Sparkpage to show my Food & Fitness Tracker. Have a peek if you'd like. I'm not sure if I'll keep it open permanantly...just for a little while. My personal trainer recommended my caloric intake at 1200-1500 but lately I've been barely reaching 1200. Some of my food choices aren't the best (like truffles or pizza) but a girls gotta have fun!

Why not have a string cheese once in a while?

I think that the whole key is to adapt a lifestyle with foods that you like (and some of those foods will have to be in moderation). It's kinda like what they teach you in WW.

I don't believe in depriving oneself...so I PLAN for my treats. They usually happen on the weekend. This works for me.

So, if I want that Hagen Daz Five Ginger ice cream, I modify my other food for the day, and either have 1/2 or 1 measured serving of it. Thankfully, the container is small...about 3 servings. Of course, my husband eats some of that.

But the first thing that has to happen is control. Once you feel you are in charge of what food you eat, it's all uphill from there!

Sounds like you are doing great too!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Yes, I now eat 6 times a day. I have the three main meals and then mid-morning, mid afternoon, and mid evening healthy snacks (not later than 7:30 - or reach for that anyway).

I have been doing that for the last 6 or 7 weeks. I think that is one of the reasons the prowlers went away. So I think I am actually on the right track and need to just teak things a bit more.

I have been tracking my food again and am hitting between 1400 and 1500 calories a day, which is where I should be. So we are on the way.

Yeah I understand everyone should be eating frequent smaller meals. Someone also told me fruits and veggies shouldn't be eaten at the same meal but I haven't adpoted that yet.

It is a journey isn't it. Hmmmm since I don't 'whine (wine)' does that mean I can't have cheese? LOL I am not a huge cheese eater but I would miss my WW string cheese and my feta.

Oh and Sandra, I too have started to carry a protein bar in my purse to avoid the 'gotta eat the first thing I see problem'. :-)

I eat 6 times/day. My nutritionist & trainer reccommended it to me. It increases your metabolism and also curbs your appetite in between meals. I eat about every 2-3.5 hours.

My meals looks like this:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, 3 turkey sausage, coffee
Snack: apple, energy or Fiber bar
Lunch: Tuna sandwich
Snack: celery & carrot sticks, Muscle Milk Light (protein drink thats 100 cal)
Dinner: 2c salad, with (snap)green beans, tomatoe, cucumber, mushrooms,4oz chicken (grilled on George Foreman grill)
Snack: crackers and low fat feta cheese, 4oz red wine.

Instead of 3 large meals make 6 small meals

Sandra emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
p.s. I always carry a Detour Bar in my purse in case I can't wait for my next meal.

Kelly, I think that's a good idea for others besides just diabetics. How do you manage to get in the 6 meals? I'm interested in this because I get really hungry and dizzy sometimes during the day and I think if I ate smaller meals throughout the day it would be better.

One question Sue...are you eating several small meals a day, like 6 small meals? As a diabetic myself, that really helps me too. If I only eat 3 meals a day I get really hungry throughout the day and my metabolism seems to slow down. If I eat the smaller meals 6 times a day I don't seems to have that problem. Only a thought :-) Kelly I don't think you're whining either!

Thanks everyone. I know this is something I have to figure out on my own basically, but all your tips and reminders help. And just knowing you are there! It is nice not to be on this journey alone.

And I am glad you all don't think I am overly complaining b/c that isn't my intent. Mostly I am trying to keep myself accountable. Well, if you do think I am a whiner, at least you don't fuss at me! LOL I saw someone who replied on another team to a member who was having my same issues. One of her team came back and pretty much said - JUST DO IT, you need to take responsibility, yada yada. I was taken aback by the tone of the response.

Many of us here who have lots of weight to lose already feel out of control (weight wise) and chatised. We 'know' this is our responisibility - we put all the food in there and reduced exercise - but if it was as simple as 'just do it', there would be no need for a site like SP or WW or any of the other support groups for people with eating issues.

So again, thanks for being there to lend an encouraging word and a prayer or two.

Sue,

I'm sorry to hear about your doctors visit. I don't know much about high sugar levels or how to adjust your diet. All I can recommend is to increase your exercise alittle bit...that will help burn more calories. You are in my thoughts. I will be praying for you.

Sue,

I know that you are eating healthy. For one thing, lots of fruits & veggies. But all fruits & veggies are not made equal. Some fruits like apples, oranges, & grapes (Raisins) are full of natural sugars, Bananas are full of fat, & some veggies are just as bad! BooBoo & I will be praying for you.

I saw this article in the Post online today. Could you believe a substance in butter, ice cream and meat blocks our normal satiety response? In ordinary terms, palmitic acid stops natural weight regulation in rodents, and may well do the same for humans. latimesblogs.latimes.com/booster_sho

Yep eat yams now instead of white ones - been doing that for quite a while. Although I will eat mashed white potatoes on special occations if I make them with healthier stuff.

Yup eat Salmon once a week - love the Costco wild Salmon. And either tilapia or tuna once a week too. Easy to fix and yummy. Get a fair amount of olive oil when I cook and I eat a small portion of walnuts and almonds a few times a week as a snack in the afternoons. That keeps me from being hungry. They both have the good fats. And I take flaxseed oil daily.

I used sliced zuchs and eggplant in my lasagne to cut back on the whole wheat lasagne noodles - instead of 8 noodles I only used 4. It was a compromise for hubby. And I do like spaghetti squash. We get that when it is available.

Doc wants me to go to 1200 calories/day!!!! NOT! I have tried that before and it will throw my blood sugars low and make me fatigued. I think that is starvation level from everything I know about my weight, build, and energy levels. SP recommends 1400-1600 calories a day for my height and weight. As does Dr. Oz's plan.

I have been on a plateau and with some diligence I will be able to find a way to start down again. I think just have the sugars high and not using the insulin I produce properly is the main cause I can't lose. So I'll figure it around eventually. Likely increasing my walking will be the key.

Yes, sleep is a key and I get 7-8 hours a night. And my stress levels are actually quite low. Used to be all stressed 24/7 which is where all the weight came from. But that resolved 4 years ago and now my stress is minimal really. And at that, with Reiki, what little I have goes away pretty quickly. :-)

Just having support here and being able to write about it is helpful.

Thanks all!

Sue,

My thoughts are with you. My mom's a diabetic and has a terrible time losing weight and getting her blood sugar in the "right" range. She is on meds, but she avoided them for a long time. Keep plugging away. It sounds to me that you have a very healthy attitude and that's half the battle. We are with you on this! Bright blessings to you!

Hi Sue,
I noticed that you didn't mention fish. Salmon is sooo good for you; we eat wild salmon (Costco even sells it!) fairly often.

The other things I'm thinking is that you may not be eating enough and that you may not be getting enough fat. Your doctor can help with determining that. Not eating enough can put your body in starvation mode and you won't lose any weight. Not enough fat (GOOD fat like olive oil) is like not putting oil in a car engine.

And I've become a total advocate of walking. It feels good. Even if it's just a mile. And the more you do it, the farther you'll go. And, it's a stress reliever.

So glad you reached out to all of us!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Hey, Sue. Sorry to hear about your blood sugar. My dad was diagnosed with diabetes a couple of years back. Yup, it's a disease aggrevated by insufficient exercise and odd sleep hours as well as both fat and sugar. I don't do fried foods nearly at all, but I did find that my dad's blood sugar went down when I substituted squash for pasta and yams for white potatoes.

Yup, spaghetti squash is edible, and it's possible to make a lasagne (or strata) with slices of squash or eggplant instead of pasta. If you grill the eggplant or squash (or pan-fry it in olive oil), it's even possible to make such lasagnes in the microwave.

As for the yams (sweet potatoes), it turns out that not only do they taste good, they were an African herbal remedy for diabetes. And it's even possible to make a sweet potato salad (more a German-style potato salad) for picnics (and summertime eating, though it's now officially fall). Of course, that doesn't mean the canned sweet potatoes in syrup or the sweet potato cassarole with lots of butter, but pretty much the substitution in any potato recipe can be 1/1, or check sparkrecipes.

Jane.

Sue,
Sorry that you are having so many problems. I have a friend here that is having the same sort of problems, and she was just put on meds last week.
It is all Greek to me, as I don't have any problems.
I don't know know what is high or what is low.
I guess I would have to be in your shoes.
I hope that you will get it all straight soon and not have to take the medication.
It is strange, if you cut back on stuff that it would lower it, but then, sometimes our bodies do quirky things.
You are definitely on my prayer list, as I don't believe in luck, only a blessing from the Lord.
May it be in his will to heal you soon.
Maggie will enjoy the extra walking, I'm sure!
Best Wishes, Rosa

Hi all

Was at Doc's yesterday. The blood sugar is STILL climbing even with all the changes I have made. My glycohemoglobin is now up to 7 (up from 6.7 three months ago). He wants me to drop serious weight these next 3 months to get the sugars down or I need to start meds. EEK

The only other number that went up was my triglycerides by a smidge but even they are in the normal range. Cholesterol is good. But some fat has obviously creeped into my diet b/c those triglycerides moved up and normally they are stable.

What gets me is this past 3 months, I cut out chocolate, decreased red meat & eggs dramatically. No candies, very few pasties. A minimal amount of ice cream. I had already made the change to olive or canola oil, brown rice, dark bread in moderation, etc etc etc. And with the garden, I have been having lots of fresh veggies and herbs. My grocery cart normally has the majority of the things that are fresh not processed.

And like last night, I made a small lasagne with only 4 noodles in it, sliced zucchini, sliced eggpant, spinach, low fat ricotta, low fat cottage cheese, low fat mozarella, and my homemade spaghetti sauce (no meat). I think that is healthy, yes? I ate one portion of 1/8 of the pan (it was only 2 noodles wide by one long). I amgoing to put it in the recipe calculator today to see what it comes up. I had a piece of whole grain bread with a tad bit of herbed olive oil. For me that is a lot of cheese b/c I typiclaly don't eat much of it but in this dish I still don't think it is that bad.

I am beginning to think with the dramtic jump maybe I should just go back to my old way of eating! :-)

I am going to start tracking the food again here to see if I can figure out what is tripping me up. But I have been careful. The weight isn't coming off though so something is getting me. The 'prowlers I caompained about a few months ago have stopped so that isn't the issue. I do watch portions and some days I keep an informal list and come in at about 1500 calls which is what the program here says is right for me (1400-1600).

The ONE area I know I slipped on is that I have allowed myself something fried once a week or so - french fries or fried chicken or fish. I would not think I had enough to make that much difference but will kick them out completely again and shoot for oven fried again.

So Maggie and I will be walking even more frequently and I will get the Wii Fit going more often too.

Wish me luck Spark Buddies. And pray that my ankles and knees let me do it. With all of the falls/injuries the past few years those two areas are prone to strain/reinjury. I really cannot afford water aerobics now. There just are no funds for it in the budget.

Ok now I fessed up. Maybe I can stay honest.

Have any of you found that your blood sugar #s go up even with increased exercise and decreased food intake? It is sooooooo frustrating.
