When I first came upon Iowa Avenue, it was much busier than it is these days. That it has quieted down as much as it has is disappointing. It is a great site to hook up with people who also want to live a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully, there will be a resurgence at some point in time.
As we move into the new year, my plan is to get back onto my healthy eating regimen. I'm making progress as I choose to eat more vegetables and less processed food. One step at a time seems to work for me.
Also, it is difficult as a caregiver to eat at the same time as my father. Unfortunately, he is a diabetic and must eat at regular times. I've gained a lot of weight since I moved in with him. I prefer to eat only when I am hungry - that seems to work best for me. That means I need to get his meal, but not eat if I'm not hungry. Then, a couple of hours later I'm searching for something to eat.
Another thing that helps me out is meal replacement. I enjoy drinking Carnation Instant Breakfast and use that for two meals a day when I want to lose weight. It keeps me satisfied and I don't feel the need to snack between meals.
Well, just a brief post today. Hopefully, more people will check in or return to Iowa Avenue. It is a good site with great bones!
