i'm looking for recs too, good thread! nak
I haven't lost much, but I think I am doing good so far. I count calories (total eye opener!), watch portion sizes, try to do something active everyday, and get 35 g of fiber. I was eating a pitiful amount of fiber--way under 20grms so that has definitely improved with tracking foods. I try to measure out water too--lots of times I will eat when I am actually thirsty. I drink 12 cups a day! I love calorie counting because you can save 200 calories a day for a snack like...
I borrowed a firm video as well but was annoyed to find that it requires the step thingie. I couldn't find anything around the house that I could use instead, and the workout seemed sort of worthless without it. I'm going back to the library to find a different dvd.
I would not be putting coconut oil on a baby that little. It looks alarming to me and I would take your baby back to the doctor before it gets infected. I hope your little one is better soon!

First one was at a birth center, and the...
I suck guys. After improving my form I can barely do more than a few. Then at the last level I can go down, but can't get back up! I feel like that lady in the commercial that was so funny a long time ago, "I've fallen and I can't get up!".

So my dietician never shows any enthusiasm for my mostly perfect numbers. She just drones on and on about my...

Same breakfast as usual. Can't figure that one out. The call nurse started lecturing me on 1 carb for breakfast. I told them it was just not possible, they are going to have to figure out something else, because 1 carb for breakfast I am crashing before 1 hour is up...
Oh my gosh you guys, I have been at 140.8 these past 2 days! All the stuff I started last month is starting to pay off, I think. I think I can definitely make my goal of 137 this month.

The nurse who initially trained me gave me the wrong info. Not a big deal but that means my numbers are really high! I felt much more supported with the NP who is a diabetes specialist than my OB. She also confirmed that with my really low 3 hr # on the GTT I should be eating every 2 hours, not every 3. Wish...
