    Hi all, haven't posted much as my bro has been up from FL AND my self-care hasn't been all that great. Sigh...

    Got the book on Glycemic Index today - maybe it is not "the" book but "a" book on it. Anyway - I feel like a complete toad for not following thru long enough to make any lasting changes Do I have to pass the 200 lb mark?

    I am watching "Fat March" when it is on, anyone seen that? Interesting show ... I am hoping it will motivate me more.
    Maybe it is "the" book, who's to say ? That's such a good way to eat, I should do that. I get so tired that I end up eating sweets and if I could get a handle on my diet, that would make all the difference, I bet.

    I like "Fat March". I'd like to do that myself. I could only watch the first week r/t work hours (the downside to the NICU is that they don't have TVs by the cribs--sometimes I'd spend a little more time assessing patients when they were watching a show I liked, LOL), but walking seems like a pretty good way to work off the weight and get stronger without killing your body. And you know I like sleeping outside .

    I thought the trainers were kind of strict, though. Did you see the first episode where they had two tables of food, one healthy and one with junk food? A couple of the walkers chose to split a piece of pizza and they got reamed over it. I'd like to see these shows take a more realistic approach to weight control. If you have walked 12 miles during the day (which would be a huge workout if you weighed 300 lbs), I don't think half a piece of pizza is going to shoot you back to where you were before you began. But, maybe I'm just rationalizing because I like pizza . . .

    Hope you had a nice visit. It's hard to find time to exercise with extra stuff going on--and welcoming family is easier with "good" food than "good" food, eh?

    I agree they were quite strict. And I think a healthier thing would have been to suggest a half slice WITH a salad ... because half a slice is not going to hold them very long nor provide them with much nutrition.

    But, they are getting results ...

    I think it would be fun to do that. When I was a teen, I did a walkathon that was 13 miles - it was tough but doable. (yes, doable as a TEEN - different story today I'm sure). This is about the avg amt these guys are doing daily.

    Aw, we could do it, Zoe--we just might require a looooong nap afterwards .
    And we could sneak off camera-range and split a slice . . .
