So, let's just forget the nutritional value or additive content of what we're putting into our bodies and rate it solely on calories, shall we?
      So many people focus on "low calorie" instead of nutritious or even non-poisonous! My MIL is on an ongoing weight loss journey (good for her! down like 60 or something so far) but she really likes her diet cokes... I wouldn't be surprised if that's limiting her losses. She also said on facebook that they're starting something similar to primal, but I know the other night they had fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Ah well. Good luck..

      Started PB on Monday, June 4. I'm focusing on my health in 2012, including taking natural supplements, zumba and strength training, regular church attendance and studying the Bible, spending time with good friends, and reading more. I want to see what health milestones I can achieve this year!

      Starting body fat - 41%
      Starting weight - 170 lbs
      9/4 body fat - 33%
      9/4 weight - 150 lbs

        OK, that's nice.
        Actually that's a pretty good step in the right direction for her husband. Obviously still a long way to go, but the allure of beer is powerful.

          One friend of mine discovered the MyFitnessPal Mobile App. It scans barcodes and enters them into a daily log. He scans his daily breakfast of, for example, a pack of zingers and a Monster. He knows I'm losing weight and keeps telling me I should get this app. I just tell him that my food doesn't come with barcodes.

            Stuffed Cabbage. I am eating it. Seasoned ground beef (lots of fat) with diced onion, carrot, celery, wrapped in a big old honkin cabbage leaf and covered in drippin chunks of fresh stewed maters. Side dish of cold cukes and onions in vinegar. Coworker wants to know why I never eat any fiber. Headdesk.
            The two constants in my life are a clean mind and dirty knees.


            Everything else is subject to change without notice.

              Not what people have said, more a line of dialogue in an advert between a squirrel and a hedgehog (which says it all).

              "All because they (people) aren't eating the fibre that nature intended them to!"

              ...it's an advert for bran flakes.
              Meat is Prized, Wheat is Despised.

                  True. My BIL rests his beer on his beer belly (they don't call it that for nothing), it's like a shelf sticking out. He looks like he's expecting triplets. He keeps complaining that he has back problem. No, he has front problems. Pregnant ladies get backaches too.

                  But then he pats his tummy affectionately and says, "This here is a sign of good living."

                    Ah, the breaded food conundrum. People think it's meat. They don't consider the carbs and glutten and other nasties in the breadcumbs. I mean really people, it's just some bread in meatloaf! Jeeze! Right?
