Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


I think you're being too hard on yourself. If your cholestrol, etc is good why not eat what you

enjoy for breakfast and just cut back a bit on butter, cream cheese, etc and perhaps whole milk on the oatmeal instead of half and half, lol?

They say if you can do something for three weeks, it becomes acceptable. I did that putting 1% milk in my coffee instead of a higher fat milk/cream. I just couldn't get rid of the sugar, although I have cut it down to 1 1/2 t per about 10 oz cup. And since my coffee is half milk, the 1% milk made a big difference. (okay, I don't really like coffee and actually give it up completely months at a time)

You could do fruit and yogurt for lunch if you get hungry. I also eat a lot of cheese, butter, cream, etc and have excellent cholestrol, etc readings. As you say, good genes. Unfortunately, I have some not so good genes in other areas, lol.

I know what you mean about yogurt and non-fat, etc. I hate artificial sweetener in anything. When I discovered the Activia plain yogurt that is low fat, not non-fat, it was a revelation. I can eat it by the spoonful, but really enjoy it mixed with a little of their vanilla yogurt on strawberries and other fruits. I think it is more filling than the non-fat, and certainly tastes better.

Congratulations on the excercise. You sound as though you're managing quite well.
