    I have been unable to exercise for about 4 months total due to injuries. The first time was SI joint sprains then a fractured foot that left me unable to exercise for about 3 months. I was finally able to get back to exercising at the beginning of March. Then I pulled a muscle (though I'm beginning to think I did something worse b/c it still hurts) in my lower back on 3/29. I'm just now getting to where I can walk comfortably, but just regular day stuff, not as exercise. Then the whole family got sick last week. I swear, it's been a freaking comedy of errors here.

    So the short answer is no, I've not been walking because I haven't been able to. I've been at the same weight for about 4 months.

    Yes, I get hungry around 11am, so I eat. Then I am hungry around dinner.

    Typical day of food:
    4-6 lg eggs cooked in butter with sour cream, if I'm very hungry I'll add 4-6 strips of bacon (the bacon is a recent addition in the past couple months)

    Dinner could be a chicken breast with cabbage (sauteed in butter), broccoli or some other veggie; a couple burgers, possibly with cream of mushroom soup over them and some veggie; grain free lasagna; teriyaki chicken...I try to eat both beef and chicken; rarely fish because I don't like it, and I don't do seafood either. Pork is out because my kids aren't allowed to eat it.

    Snack if I'm hungry between meals is usually a few slices of mammoth cheddar cheese or a lara bar uber bar. I'm not a big fruit fan, so I rarely eat that. I've been trying to add more veggies, so I'll also snack on cukes w/salt, peppers, celery and carrots.

    Back when I was losing weight, I was eating a couple squares of 70% dark chocolate a day; I have been having a small handful of dark chocolate chips when I want something sweet these days, but mostly it's sugar free gum (I know...barf @ the artificial stuff, but it's the only thing I eat w/artificial stuff in it) and stevia sweetened iced tea.

    Even if I don't track calories, it may do me some good to at least write down what I'm eating.
