I stepped on the scale yesterday after my water aerobics class and found my weight to be down by another 3 lbs. That's 23 lbs since September 1st. I'm very excited about this and hope I can keep moving it in this direction. It hasn't been too hard, I just have to be aware of what I'm eating and what my activity level has been like. The fitbit app has helped to track calories in and out a lot. I know it gets harder as there is less weight to lose but I still think my goal is attainable in the course of a year.

It was suggested that I try getting on a good probiotic to help with my GI issues- Good meant, liquid form and high concentration. However, a trip to the store where the only option I could find that was liquid and dairy free was $50 for a 30 day supply revealed that this is outside of my budget. Someone suggested naturally fermented kefir. That got me looking at the tangent of naturally fermented foods. I've done lactofermented pickles before and it's not hard. Many of the recipes used whey though, to help start fermentation. That isn't really an option for me but I did find a source that indicated that water kefir and water kefir grains can be used instead. It might be interesting to try.
