I have been so diligent staying on program. I didn't let the baklava I ate earlier in the week get me of course. That is such a change from the way I used to view missteps. One thing I have noticed is not having enough fiber in my program. So I am adding more legumes. We are supposed to have a minimum of 25 grams a day. I have been way below that except for the days I've eaten black or red beans. Especially since I love them. Add some fresh salsa and I'm good to go.

Great! I think that is such a key thing, too. If we do get off course, we can't let it get us down and stuck in a cycle of more eating and guilt. I've been learning how important that is. Great job with that. A snack of hummus, if you like it, and cut up veggies is a great way to get those beans in. I made some without tahini--it was really easy and had a lot of fresh lemon. Seemed lighter and more fresh than the regular kind but if you do the premade kind there are lots of great varieties to pick from.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.

Good job rebounding, we have to keep moving forward or we will be stuck talking about making changes rather than doing it.

Thanks, Jenny, it's hard to reconcile for some folks but carbs aren't healthy, they sure might taste good, but not worth the insulin roller coaster they put a person's body on!

Any activity trackers that sync with FatSecret?
I'm debating on buying a FitBit Charge HR or a Jawbone Up3. I wish there was a tracker which would feed the activity to my FatSecret.

I've been making entries to weight on a weekly schedule and I have missed some. However, the last oh 4-6 entries are not showing up. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I am going to try and enter them ...

Not hungry anymore
Eating so little will put your body into starvation mode. And that's not good - long term you could get ill, you need to eat a sensible amount for your weight.
