Great start to the day. I parked at Palafox Market walked down to the bay then back and bought fresh local fruits and vegetables. Now I'm warm at home enjoying a fire while I do laundry.

If you have a microwave available soup is a great opinion. Also, I love to have some grilled chicken(either prepared at home or from a restaurant) along with a fruit or yogurt and possible a small salad if I'm really hungry. There are plenty of great low-carb option...I just had a broiled hamburger patty today(left over from a dinner) with a yogurt....Yummy!!!!

At age 71, I want to feel good and get healthy. I've lost weight with Weight Watchers, Atkins, South Beach and more. After good success, something sets me off (vacation, visits, holiday treats, medical issues,,,) and I slip back into a gentle weight gain. The gains exceed the losses and now I have tipped 300 with an A1C that puts me in diabetes range. I know what if feels like to be healthy and I exercise regularly. I have been dealing with weight issues for 20 years and I must find a lifestyle that meets my goals. I will meet the week 1 goals and I like the fact that they seem attainable. Soooo... I have 3 months until the next A1C and I expect to see it lower. I think this weight loss challenge is going to help a lot.

I like to use wrappers (lavash, tortilla wrappers, etc.) - I look for ones with whole grains, high fiber, and protein and then wrap sliced turkey, hard-boiled eggs, peanut butter, or whatever in them. Avoid the plain flour ones with no fiber and little protein but high carbs. The alternatives are many READ THE LABELS though.

Hi RRoss, and congratulations on your weight loss!!!! Have you checked out the nutrition tracker, it can help you with low carb options? You can also go to the Recipes part of Spark and sort recipes by low carb. I hope this helps. emoticon

Stepped on the scale this morning and I am down another 3.2 lbs (every fraction counts). Feeling really good.

I am wondering if anyone could recommend some healthy low carb lunch options besides eating a salad every day? I need to mix it up. emoticon
