Coming Back? (Update on life)
At least trying to come back.
Oh! the class I'm in is so much fun! I was not real excited at the beginning of the year, but it's really, really good.
I'm back to weight watchers. Been doing low carb, but "feel" healthier on WW. Plus, they've revamped everything and most fruits are "free" - fruit is what I miss on low carb. So away I go.
Reading "The Roots of Obama's Rage" - it's more psychological than political, but if the author is correct, it's going to get ugly.
Still reading "50People Every Christian Should Know."
Tom will be home on Wednesday. Life goes on.
Tweaking the Plan
Weight Watchers isn't doing it for me. But...the beauty of FLEX to that I can use (the tracking tools, point system, etc.) and don't worry about the rest. I paid to go until I had the tools I needed and now I have the material.
I have PCOS, diagnosed over 20 years ago. I also strongly suspect I have thyroid issues (low body temp, thinning hair) that is not showing up in blood tests (looking for a doctor who will treat the patient, not the number). My fasting blood sugar is perfect, as is my blood pressure. My cholesterol is high (212). I'd like to lose 60-70 pounds.
Weight Watchers (as written) doesn't work.
Atkins (as written) doesn't work (I did Atkins at less than 25 grams of carb a day for 3 months and lost 4 pounds). I'm a little OCD when it comes to logging what I eat...I use a MasterCook recipe just to put my daily eating into. So I have a good handle on what I eat.
So...combining the two.
WOW! Recipe…Weight Watchers…CORE
