wow.....posted my exercise & calories on yesterday's post. busy day today.

total cal: 2300 approx.

hour walk.

I bought a lot of bars containing artificial sugars. of course I will eat them...debating returning them....but man they are good. they contain truvia type artificial sweeteners.  I am not drinking anything artificial though. no diet drinks or coffees.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

I always hate starting a day when my sleep has been thrown off... keep up the good work.

Let me know what you find with the stevia and your legs.


legcramps on 10/02/2013:
Glad you got a decent amount of sleep even with the interruptions; I hate waking up in the middle of the night - it's so hard for me to get back to sleep!

Someone else on here - I think Maria - had a bad reaction to stevia. I've never had any ill effects from it, but glad you figured it out!


skinnygrlwithin on 10/01/2013:
I personally have never had any bad side effects, but everyone is affected differently. It's worth a shot.

RYC: I like coffee too--it doesn't do me any favors though:-)

Good luck--I've been pretty consistent with decaf for about the last year and of course it's not the same. There are some good decaf coffees, and it still has traces of caffeine, but it's a good tradeoff to get you off the caffeine.

That would be interesting if removing stevia from your eats makes a big difference. Worth a try:-)

pretty good day :-D

legs hurt though! still. still it's a battle, but not like it used to be, not as bad at all :-D

around 2100 at most. good.

exercise: like 20 min during lunch & another 20 min after dinner.

got my hair done, so no major exercise till Wednesday. Pool is closed till later October around the 20th.  Would like to do weights tomorrow night but might wait it out with my hair till Thursday evening for weights. ugh...boy does that suck!  Maybe i'll cancel physical therapy Wednesday to do the weights? That would be stupid, yes, must go to physical therapy...
