Start Weight:(05 Jul 10) 234.0 lb
Current Weight:(25 Oct 16) 154.8 lb
Goal Weight:142.0 lb
following: The GI diet
performance: losing 1.5 lb a week

Chapter 3 of my FS bio -- I recommitted to FS in September 2015, weighing in at 186.8, just about 7 pounds more than I'd weighed when I left the community, but of course, in the interim I'd gained and re-lost almost 50 pounds! Now, a year later, I'm hovering between 157-158, so I've managed to shed almost 30 pounds over the year. I'm impatient to be dropping below 150, but I am proud of the past year because I think it's evidence that I've made real change in my lifestyle and my eating habits. This year, I have to work on making that change permanent and continuing to sustain my downward trend and reach my goal by 2-13-2017.

Updated goals for 2016-17:
- Drop net carbs below 100 and calories below 1400 until back skating and going to the gym (can't go right now due to shoulder injury)
- Lose .5 to .75 pound each and every week
- Participate regularly in agility lessons, ice skating lessons, or other regularly scheduled exercise each and every week (as soon as I resolve my current shoulder injury!)(have been meeting this goal since December 2016)
- Walk or use exercycle 15-20 minutes daily (40 minutes until I start skating again) (have been meeting this goal daily)
- Reach my goal weight by February 13, 2017
- Hold at goal until February 13, 2018
- In honor of 65 birthday, get new driver's license with new photo of new me

Cholesterol lowering foods
Thanks very much for the suggestion. I'm glad this worked so well for you and hope others will give it a try. Unfortunately the combination of two TBSPs of olive oil and 1/3 cup of almonds adds up to about 500 calories. That's more than one-third of my total calorie count for the day, so it's not really practical for me on my diet plan.

Cholesterol lowering foods
Because I tend to have very low good cholesterol and high bad, I'm always looking for tips on how diet supports healthy cholesterol levels. Here's a good basic article that came across my inbox today.

Avocados -- the good, the bad, the not-so-ugly
I'm not going to argue biochemistry with you, yosoyollie. There are many people on this site who are struggling to learn what they need to know about nutrition, and giving them the impression that eating a potato is the same thing as eating an avocado, from a nutritional standpoint, is neither accurate nor helpful. And BTW, for people trying to control their sugar, choosing a plum over an avocado may not be the right choice at all, since the avocados have no ranking on the Glycemic Index because they are judged to have no impact on blood sugar, while a plum has a GI of 24 -- not high, but not the same as O -- and a potato has a GI of 85. When people working on blood sugar control plan meals, they plan to reach a certain calorie count and they plan to combine foods that balance their sugar. Generally, they are advised to restrict themselves to foods with GIs of 55 or under. So... you are free to post what you want, eat what you want. But perhaps you could be more careful about advising people about what to eat based on the intricacies of plant chemistry.
