Definitely want less rain. I do not recall too many nice days this month. Poor Reno (big golden who goes nuts during thunderstorms) wants it to stop raining!

I love both carrot cake AND chocolate cake so if I'm ever given the choice I say BOTH! Well I used to.

I love to bake and I actually made a nice moist carrot cake. I ate a corner piece. No frosting - didn't even put any on. And I bake from scratch so I control the ingredients. Low on the fats and reasonably minimal damage. Still high it calories though. Can't help that with sugar and flour mixed together!

I have not had a carrot cake in quite a while. I been having strawberry short cake - hold the cake. But I have lost over 60 pounds since Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I'm a fool for a good, moist carrot cake with a cream cheese frosting!

I can't even truly remember what one tastes like anymore.

Carrot Cake is a vegetable!

That's what I think! Might want to consider that I weigh over 300 pounds before agree with me.

Carrot Cake is my favorite.

I heard if you take a light cake mix, add a can of diet coke and bake it will cook and be tasty. Have not tried this.

That's definitely shocking to me. I suppose that would mean that chocolate is better for you in that sense than carrots. Very misleading if you look at it by vegetable. However, the whole corner of the cake thing is very interesting to me as well. Didn't realize that there may be more calories in a corner than a middle section. Very interesting thanks! I ask this because we got a couple of birthdays which one just passed. Where my fiancée chose a chocolate cake and I'm going with a carrot cake. I wanted to see what the general opinion was on which might be healthier.

Freddy, I couldn't say 'healthy' and 'cake' in the same sentence, but I also wouldn't feel guilty about having some once in a while. You're not dead, so you have to live a little. I have a HUGE family, and we're always celebrating something. There is ALWAYS cake, which I really love. What I do is not have an edge piece, and only eat a little of it. I really want to have a corner piece, but I know that I'll feel crappy if I do that.

FWIW, typical carrot cake -vs- frosted chocolate cake comparison is 1/8 of an 18 oz cake. Carrot = 250-300 cals. Chocolate = 200-250 cals. Surprised? Carrot cake generally has higher 1.5x) fat content, and fat is 9 cals/gram, while protein and carbs are about 4 cals/gram. I imagine carrot cake has a lot more butter in it.

It's all about portion sizes though. Smaller piece, not a 4" square. Or two as I would have done six months ago.

Okay guys,
I have a confession to make. I have been eating this chocolate cake that must be 400 cals easy. It was my fiancée's birthday yesterday and that just happened to be the cake she chose.
Also a few days ago I got a pumpkin pie/apple pie that I got from a lunch.
Now I ask you, given the choice which would be the more healthier choice that chocolate cake or pumpkin pie?

Also tried something new today, the Zumba Fitness Party. It kicked my butt! I didn't know what to expect when I first tried it honestly thought it was more than dancing. I think the easy function is even hard.

Something else I want to get my guys opinion on. Carrot Cake, is it one of the healthier cakes out there? Going to have a birthday soon and healthy or not I chose this cake for my choice of birthday cake.

I'm really glad that I found this spark team since being a guy trying to loose weight has been a difficult journey for me. I say difficult because compared to my better half I've been doing this without any help through the pills that people take for weight loss out there. Its been all hard work and getting my weight off the hard way. I have come to the conclusion I need some helpful people out there that is going through the same struggles as I am. I'm hoping this place is where I can get some of that help.

Having a challenging week, food-wise. I'm in training for two weeks, and it has group assignments that span lunch. So I am eating out every day with the group that I'm in. Hard to eat decently in that environment. BUT... I'm keeping my eyes on the prize.

Keep it up guys!

Just checking in....have been going to Crossfit since early March. I'm down from 252 to 235 and frame is toning up. I'm more or less following Paelo diet. I haven't logged it into nutritional calculator, but I imagine without starchy carbs I'm consuming little calories, but I'm feeling good: less gas, feeling more athletic, and not sluggish.

You know what? Japan's getting pummeled by mom nature and those nuke plants are failing. this isn't cool! I wish there was a way I could help but I'm pretty well relegated to having to watch and hope for their recovery.

Either way, it's so sad to see what's happening there.

Nah, New Years is just another day to me anymore. I mean if I stay up, then I will be tired for a few days. Rather just go to bed at my normal time.

With all my children: son in from NYC, daughter in from Houston, TX, staying with daughter in central Mo. I'm enjoying this day! My family all together, I get to do all the cooking (preparing beef bourginon!! face it guys, the last place you want a woman is in the kitchen, that's Your domain!!), grandkids opening their presents. Wow!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy Christmas Eve!

It is going to be a DIY weekend for me. My family has finished Christmas together (last weekend) so I'll probably take down the tree and decorations today/tomorrow, clean the basement and if I can find some oderless white paint, I may start painting the basement as well.

HI there!

Another Monday, another week starting.

The weekend was a bit busy with work and shopping. I do not take part in the Xmas madness but my partner does, so it ends up spilling on me! LOL But it was nice. Now I just have to gear up for another week of work.

Have a great day!

Hello WillamLC

I am doing well today. Hope you are too.
I am at work currently which is in S.W. Ohio, just south of Dayton.

Hope your weekend was as nice as mine was!

I have had to lightbulb moments today. One when I very first opened my eyes this morning and the other why sitting in my chair sipping coffee.

Hoping to have a 5 day run here....maybe more...did lower body weights this morning. I'm supposed to run tomorrow, but it'll be 19 here (cold for coastal Carolina) so it'll either be in the gymnasium or on the treadmill :-(

Thought I'd restart a topic that has been quiet for a few months.
Checking in for the past 3 days.
Walking
Monday: 1.1 miles
Tuesday: .89 miles
Wednesday: 1.25 miles.

Not exactly a championship pace, but it'll add up.
Starting out slow because my knees and ankle will give me fits.

Daddy, welcome to the team. I'm one of these extreme people. I haven't gotten to the point of being on the couch with beer and nuts, but I KNOW the tools are in my possession and I found with my initial Spark People experience that logging food intake and exercise to the extreme is why I succeeded. Problem was that success came too quickly for the extreme behavior turn into routine and lifestyle. I plan to do it differently this time.

Wow, I think you just described me to a "T". Great advice, I'll do my best to take it easy. I tend to try to be the micro0-manager!

Good job and welcome to the crew.make the changes slow and steady and you will do fine. the best thing that I can tell you is not to be a perfectionist. Some people when they try to lose weight make this radical swing from a careless couch potato, see food and eat it lifestyle to absolutely anal micromanagement. its not going to happen and it will only set you up for failure.

let me know how you are doing.

Hello, All,

Just checking in, at the end of my first day, so of course I'm all enthusiastic and excited!! You ever notice that you NEVER get hungry the first day of a diet? :-) I won't bore you all with details of the day, except to say it was a good one. For particulars, feel free to see the narcissistic rantings that I call my blog!!

That's about it! Hope you all had a truly blessed day. I'll look forward posting and reading some of your posts again tomorrow!

Peace,
Tom
