So what do you think? Should I figure out the calories before hand or as each day goes by? I’m thinking I’ll just log it in my fitbit and tweak it as needed. I’m doing this for healthy eating but also to lose some weight at a reasonable rate and something I can keep up for a life time. This stupid dieting type stuff just doesn’t work for me, I have to learn to do whatever I’m going to do that will last a life time. How about you, what do you do?

I’m going to look in the healthy section for breads and wraps and tortillas. Otherwise will see what I can find in the normal spots but watch the labels. I tried the no breads but that didn’t work so well so will just see what I can find that will work for me. Still staying away from the sugary wheat cereals but going with corn or rice and oatmeal.

I will find the recipe for my life that works. I WILL!!!

Yes, you WILL!!! :)

"Real Food" is going to be the story of my life. We do not need chemical preservatives or artificial flavors in our food - it tastes wonderful in it's pure state! You're right that it can be a bit more costly. I'm just finding other things to cut back on so I can buy local grass fed beef. I'm still researching and learning, and I haven't forgotten that you asked me to share what I figure out.

AND. I'm so proud of Mike for finding another job, and I'm super proud of you for doing the same. You're handling the current work situation with dignity, and that's just amazing.

Blessings to YOU, my Dear!
