~I've been reading and using as a guide:

I just started Chapter 5 and I am already losing pounds by choosing the better foods- ones with low GL (Glycemic Load). emoticon
I found by reading this book that I mostly chose foods with high GL. emoticon

    Way to go! I love that you are changing your health for the better! How awesome that you get to talk to a live smoke coach while quitting smoking, I'm super proud of you!

    60 is a great pulse rate! I need to go in and get a health screening, I know my blood pressure is borderline high, but it's been years since I had the full workup done.

    You can do this! Muah!
