I can't thank you guys enough... I'll make an exception for coalnewbie, your suggestions are excellent and all are valid. My initial changes have been, no 4 slices of toast and a half stick of butter, I hate margarine and dropped the soda but we do like zero calorie natural flavored seltzer water must look into that one! More walking and at a more brisk pace for the cardio.
Monday I'm going to the fitness center for my first, (in a long time, work out and swim. If I use the fitness center 8 times/month the hospital pays the monthly membership
My nemesis is the late night eating as mentioned. I can't eat a meal while cooking in the restaurant, the smells and little tastes ward off the hunger until I get home and the stomach starts to growl and I can easily have a couple sandwiches and watch the boob tube...time for either replacement items or make time to eat at work some how.
I'm thinking of writing down everything I eat just to see if makes me stop and think about it.
I love food my all time favorite food is fresh, homemade, out of the oven bread! I bake sourdough bread, french bread, rustic breads, and challah bread and believe me I can make a half a loaf disappear making sauce!...maronna mia
