Wednesday, August 15, 2012      5 comments

I had my health screen last week, and the blood work was done up all nice and all. My fasting glucose is at 89. *(I don't have the units to hand, but I suspect they are standard.) No real change from last April. My cholesterol wen... Read more

A year plus and counting: Lessons I've learned
Thursday, December 01, 2011      7 comments

In no particular order: 1) Don't think of it as a diet. Think of it as a nutritional plan to last the foreseeable lifetime (I say foreseeable, as as we age, our needs may change). A diet is something that has in most minds a time limit.... Read more
Days July 4-6 foods
Thursday, July 07, 2011      2 comments

Note: FM = Farmer's Market. Breakfast theory: I've known for years that I cannot start my day (break my fast) on "continental breakfast", or on a high carb meal, or worse yet, pastries and donuts. Without a start of protein, I am j... Read more
July Nutrition - Going to push (gently) back to direction!
Monday, July 04, 2011      3 comments

I spent a good portion of June out of town, eating mostly nutritious and whole foods (which the family largely appreciates) but they did contain more carbs than I'd prefer. But.. um, homemade? I at least need to be sociable and try a little he... Read more

I am getting towards my goal, a process which is more than just an end in itself. At the moment, I'm having a serious problem with "duties" and "obligations", and so fortunately my weight thing isn't really about the "duty" of tracking weight o... Read more

Actually, the season has been kicking around a bit, ever since the early December Holiday Lunch Potluck at work, at which I did eat more than I should but since there are so many co workers from places like China and India, I allowed myself to i... Read more

Thursday, November 18, 2010      4 comments

A couple days ago I got down to 205 lbs, I'm now back to 205.5 today, but that can be vagaries. I prefer to weigh myself about every third day which sort of avoids fluctuations. Once all this stops being new to me, I'll try to weigh once a wee... Read more

My niece's wedding was October 23rd. We flew down to St. Petersburg, Florida on the 21st, the morning of which I weighed 210! That was the goal for the wedding. Unfortunately restaurants in St. Petersburg have good food, things I don't... Read more
Getting used to the Nutrition Tracker
Wednesday, September 29, 2010      2 comments

I see I'll be adding my own food in, in part because I seem to require protein for breakfast, and during the summer I patronize farmer's markets a lot, which aren't going to follow any sort of pre-plan. Besides I like to cook. It's a hobby; I... Read more
