Yesterday was kind of a debacle. While I did come in under my calorie goal, my ratios of carbs/fat/protein were a mess. Part of my problem was that my daughter and I went out for brunch....and I had a Perikins egg white omelet and I couldn't f... Read more
Day Two

Yesterday I did well. I came in under my bottom calorie goal but that is ok because I know my body and if I was to eat 1400 calories in a day I would not lose weight. I'm completely sedentary due to illness and I'm sure my metabolism is at a cr... Read more

Two weeks ago I went to visit my dad for 5 days. It was a gustatory field day. We both like to eat and we both are attempting to lose weight. I had a definite "vacation mindset" and since I can't afford a cruise, I partied by eating my dad's (... Read more
