I am a carboholic and have been having a hard time with cutting them out, I especially love potatoes. I did change my bread to wholegrains but still find it hard to limit it. I know that the starchy foods fill me up so that I am not scavenging o... Read more
Tired and hungry
Wednesday, March 09, 2016      3 comments

I'm pretty sure I am not getting the right stuff to eat. I am extremely tired, almost lethargic. I can't seem to find a diet menu that works for me. I have some food allergies (mushrooms, shellfish, corn, nutrisweet, sucralose, stevia) and there... Read more

I really blew the diet today. We went out to eat to HuHot Mongolian Grill. The sauces are more calories than anything else there but you have to put enough sauce on for when they cook it. I loaded up on the veggies, but it still was a lot of cal... Read more

Depression Eating
Saturday, January 16, 2016      5 comments

I've been depressed for a little while now. I put on this happy face that everyone wants to see but there is darkness underneath it. Usually I eat when I am depressed. It's usually something in the chocolate family. My son gave me a 72 pack of C... Read more

Yesterday I had physical therapy for an hour and he really worked my legs. I need to strengthen them because one of the knees gave out and I ended up on the floor. It's been 6 months since I fractured my kneecap too and we're working on that kne... Read more
