Re: automated eating tracker

Thanks auto, glad your sugars are stable. I currently only take a blood sugar test once a week. The last one which had gone up was the morning after a low carb day. Evening meal was early and was an omelette with sausage bacon and red pepper, hence my surprise.... I'm hoping it is just a dawn effect...

Always looking for ways to make and eat fish since my entire family pretty much hates it.
I have been serving salmon with sweet red peppers, onion courgette and couscous. Just fry everything, mix couscous with hot water then add to pan, lovely with a splash of sweet chilli sauce.

Re: flyingpig checkin

Well done on a green Friday. It's so true that it's not the fail that upsets the apple cart but what you do afterwards :)

Re: Octavia is finally checking in!

I'm glad you've found your groove, it will be interesting to hear of your progress.

I think we all end up adapting our accumulated knowledge to suit ourselves on the end :)

She sounds wonderful and I always felt safe walking with a dog. I think my last collie would have protected me but the one before not so sure. Both exceptionally clever. I don't think we will get another anytime soon. My husband didn't want Pix because of the commitment and the fact you are tied. Bu...

It's wierd how moderation is so easy some weeks and not on others. I've managed to moderate my drinking days to 3 and not too much when I do. But Christmas is looming!!

Re: Does this work for everyone?

You will have to cut right down on your carb consumption, eating carbs makes you want more. Either go cold turkey or do it systematically and slowly. You won't be able to have a lot on s days unless you want to be starting again every Monday. I'd cut as much obvious sugary stuff as you can first. Wh...

Sorry to hear that Challenger is having a tough time but it is just typical behaviour, they can be so difficult. I think sometimes they are experiencing so many physical changes and don't know how to express how they are feeling so they end up lashing out verbally or physically at parents. All made ...

Thanks auto. I really hope so. Our family does seem susceptible to diabetes but it is reversible at this stage.

Must admit it has been surprisingly easy to cut carbs and reduce alcohol intake so far !!

Re: Soprano

The eating carbs came to an easy and abrupt end when I got my HbA1c reading. I've tipped into prediabetic. I was quite shocked 2 years ago it was 41, last year 40 and I was hoping to have dropped again but now it's 43!! I suppose the last 3 months haven't been as good as the rest of the year but it ...

He had a first disastrous year in college then switched courses and did brilliant. Uni wasn't so good. I just tried to make him understand it was down to ...

Oolala have you tried yoga I've been using a dvd with 2 x 30 min programs for 2 or 3 years now and it has really toned my muscles, I can feel a difference in them and my flexibility is so much better than in the beginning.

Re: Staying On Track

In the beginning using habitcal kept my days green.

Coming on here and reading other threads.

I have drifted from time to time but other than fasting I haven't followed any other diets. l use No s as my default position.

Re: April's Keep it Simple at 50

Sustainable is the key point. I dabble with fasting but really only between 12 and 18 hours. But I can see how it can become addictive and certainly for some it is a god send.

Slow weight loss is hard to live with at times but those half pounds soon add up :)

Hope your toe recovers without removal of the nail.

Yes carbs are like eating sugar, cutting rice pasta and bread may help.

It will help Weight loss too I suspect :)
