    Something else I would like to say. Having not lived in North America for 15 years now, I am astonished, and not in a good way, at the portion sizes. One of the best ways to control your weight is to start using a side plate to curb your portions when at home. If you go out to eat, eat half of that monstrosity that is often served on a platter.

    Fwiw, I am pushing 50 and weigh 3 lbs less than when I graduated high school (I had less than 4% body fat). I got heavy a few years back from eating and drinking too much. I cut down portion sizes and cut back on beer. I do not drink soda ( my 6 year old has never drank soda) and almost no added sugar. I quit smoking 3.5 years ago (ashamed I ever started, but was raised in a tobacco growing community and my mom smoked until her heart issues).I live on the third floor(16 stairs per floor) and I try not to use the elevator. My grocery store is a half mile away. I walk there for an almost daily shop and carry my groceries back (up hill all the way). I guess what I am trying to say is small things make for big changes and one doesn't need a gym to make a change.

      My ankle and calves were screaming after 3 miles today. I had to cut short. I cant wait to get a pool.

            I go to Ono on Sunday, and chase this with a B-Vitamin tablet.

              The snack of the day is...

              Luke's Organic Cheddar Lightning Bolts.

              A healthy twist on Crunchy Cheetos.

              In the Powder Blue bag.

              The natural cheddar cheese gives the tasty snacks a sunshine yellow tint.
