Well starting over again. I worked really hard this past spring and lost about 20lbs...then bought Halloween candy...well as soon as it is gone...then back to the NO RED MEATS and NO Corn products. Seems those are my triggers along with sugars..so NO holiday baking for me as well this year. Our grown kids are going to be gone or doing something with other family members this year so it will be easier on me to not feel like I have to cook. Our church does Thanksgiving dinner the Sunday before and we are designated to smoke the turkeys and hams so I plan to prepare healthy sides.
So more veggies, fruits and low fat meats and less bread and sugars.
