    Congratulations on your steady weight loss Ed!

    I am still going up and down. I will lose 2# and gain 1 1/2 back!!

    It's really hard with the grandkids here because I have to fix them healthy meals 3x a day.

    When there is just hubby and I - I only fix one big meal (supper) and I eat eggs, meat, or veggies the other 2 meals as I am here by myself...

    Wife is working at her diet and lost 10 pounds. Amazed at how better clothes fit (esp in the upper arms where 55 year old women tend to gather excess flab).

    Encouraging me to kick in and work at it. I have lost most of my motivation (hey, if the MD says you're going to die in a couple years, who cares about diet!)

    So today I am eating fruit and cutting back on the fat again. It is an easy way for me to drop pounds.

    That, and lite beer.

    Ever since finding this thread i'm thinking about giving diet soft drinks another try .
    -ducks from Dr.Bob- you missed [​IMG]

    I'm also going to be checking into splenda for my iced tea. I'm about umm 40 lbs over what i'm supposed to be. Not huge or anything i'm comfy where I am but, later on those 10 extra lbs per child might catch up with me so might get them off now.

    I do have one of those walking things from McDonalds that i'm going to begin using if i can get it away from my daughter [​IMG]

    God Bless

    Dan,
    I found me a good doctor! Fron India. He weighed me and told me I wasn't overweight. I was just 6 inches too short! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What is with that, anyway? Notice so many older women, but never see males with that. Is it just from muscle development over the years?

    Or maybe evolutionary ties to women and bats . . :rolleyes:

    OK, since I'm sitting here drinking one, I'll give you the info:

    Serving Size: 1 can
    Total Fat: 0g
    Sodium: 45mg
    Total Carb: 18g
    sugars: 18g
    Protein: 0g

    Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar, caramel color, phosphoric acid, natural flavors, potassium benzonate (to protect taste), potassium citrate, caffine, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, sucralose.

    The artificial sweeteners are potassium citrate, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose. Coca-Cola decided to try out a blend of artificial sweeteners in order to water down the aftertaste.

    I love it, and so does my teenage daughter.

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    oh, and somewhere on the horizon...

    Last week our plant (yes, I work for Coca-Cola) ran five or six test batches of variations of Diet Coke.

    Translation: Coca-Cola USA had us run several small batches of test formulas in order to taste test them in the market.

    We also did this for C2, back in December. So, in a few months there just might be a new Diet Coke coming out. If I hear anything, I'll pass it along.

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    Lea,

    How did you like it?

    Do me a favor. Look on the bottom of the can (I'm assuming you bought an 8 pack or an 18 pack). Well, if you bought an 18 pack, I know we didn't run it, but look on the bottom of the can.

    After the date (DEC0604), what are the next two letters? If they are 'CV' then it came from my plant.

    In Christ,
    Trotter
