Current Weight:(25 Apr 17) 157.2 lb
Goal Weight:142.0 lb
following: The GI diet
performance: losing 0.1 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

How to curb late night eating?
Here's something shocking: There's research now that I read in the past few months that it is not true that late night eating puts on more weight than eating any other time during the day. So I have solved the problem by saving up calories during the day so I can have a snack in the evening without inflating my calorie or carb count for the day. I look closely at my food log before I choose my evening snack, and I make sure that I choose something that reflects the choices I've made elsewhere during the day. Sometimes that means I can have an ounce of cheese. Sometimes it means I can have strawberries with yogurt. Just depends on the day. My point is, snacking in the evening is only evil if you have eaten to the top of your RDI and your snack puts you over the top.

Turning yogurt into dessert
Ingria -- I have eaten low-glycemic for a number of years, but 2 years ago I contracted a food-borne infection and I have had IBS-A ever since. So I've had to overlay low FODMAP on top of low Glycemic, which is very complicated. I am able to eat peaches now, although I limit the amount. But "ol" sweeteners do not agree with me at all, so I avoid anything "sugar free." If I want something sweet, I use good old turbinado raw sugar or 100% maple syrup. But it is possible to eat low glycemic AND low FODMAP, in fact there's a lot of cross-over between these two WOEs. But it does mean you have to be very careful.

Turning yogurt into dessert
Unfortunately, many protein powders have sweeteners not permitted on low FODMAP diets. But if you don't have IBS, this is a great idea.

Low cal nutritious foods
If you are just learning about calorie control or you just want some helpful guidelines, I thought that this was pretty good.

Oops -- that was a hefty "sprinkle" of pumpkin pie spice.
