emoticon moved 1 in the right direction today. This time last year I was 191 and it has been 7 years since I was around this weight and there were times before that and after that I was over 200. Go turtle go!
My very best to all you turtles out there.

Thanks for the well wishes. I did Step last night but no strength since it required straining some and bending.

I hate sinus headaches. I think the gardening in the cold without a head cover was partly to blame. I know better.

Thanks for the encouragement... just for tonight I choose to not have a bedtime snack (which will allow me to have more restful sleep). Tomorrow I will start my walk exercise program, keeping in mind "slow and steady" will work for me!

As far as the veggie dip goes, just use dried dill instead of fresh when you don't have any.
Last night I had a box of french cut frozen green beans for a snack. Just a touch of butter and salt. Man I love vegetables!

The turtle won the race and we can too. Just a little here and there can add up to a lot. I went to the Y yesterday and did a lot better than I thought I would. Was going today but got to town and found out that I forgot my shoes. The shoes are now in the truck waiting for me. I won't be able to go now again until next Monday. After that I am going to see about going daily. I haven't figured out yet exactly what programs i want to be in, but I have a few days to figure that out. emoticonemoticonemoticon

I like the Steamfresh veetables, especially the mixed veggies, and Asian veggies. The whole bag is only about 160 calories, no fat and low sodium. I take 2-3 oz. of chicken breast, or lean pork cooked and add it to the Asian vegetables and get 4 servings of vegetables and a full feeling. Fast & easy -- takes no more than 6-8 minutes. Can also servse over brown rice.

The first step in getting somewhere is by deciding not to stay where you're at.

Getting in veggies can be hard. V8 juice is great every once in a while since 8 oz. is 2 servings. If you prep veggies, (celery sticks, carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, etc) in advance it's helpful. And a delicious dip is fat free Greek yogurt with some salt, pepper, garlic, dill. You feel positively sinful eating these incredible veggies in a creamy dip and it's GOOD FOR YOU!!! emoticon
