ConeyIsBabe, is there a reason you don't eat any kind of yogurt? Is it that you can't tolerate it? I know doctors on tv say to eat yogurt for the good bacteria in it. Thanks Barb

I'm lactose intolerant and milk products, even small amounts, give me intestinal distress ~ including yogurt. I've tried soy yogurts and those bother me also. The symptoms are very minor.... slight brief tummy ache, slight bloating, sometimes just a bad feeling. So I've eliminated those food products from my diet and my tummy is happy

I do take a high quality probiotic ~ Ultimate Flora Senior Formula, 30 billion cultures ~ which I find in the refrigerator section of the health food store.

no drugs
I bet you're in great shape! I'm going to be inspired by you to eliminate the yogurt. Dairy affects my circulation. It's not that I love the taste, either.

I enjoy the rewards of a lifestyle based on eating what my body needs ~ not just what tastes good for a few minutes and I take pride in maintaining a size 10 for health reasons and vanity (I admit to it)

LOL neg...... when I "cheat" it's with Pamela's cookies (at the health food store). Next time you are there, look for the mini-chocolate-chip cookies, read the ingredients and try some. The cheating part is when I eat more than the recommended portion, which is 3 cookies

Overall, my willpower is very strong ~ cuz I like feeling good

Kind of reminds me of the saying: "I eat to live, I don't live to eat".

I hope my last post didn't kill the thread!

My M.D. and vascular surgeon are pushing exercise. Who belongs to a gym who didn't want to but now likes it?

Default Gym membership

Yes, all doctors should be pushing exercise if they aren't. I used to think gym memberships were a waste of money. After all, we can exercise out of doors, which I did, off and on, for years. One of my outdoor jogging routes led right past the floor to ceiling windows of an L.A. Fitness gym near my town house, and I used to think, look at all those people wasting their money. Then five years ago I had a scare with blood sugar control and decided it might be easier to exercise regularly at a gym so I joined. It was the best thing I ever spent money on. First, all those days when we might say "forget it" (105 degrees outside and smoggy, or pouring down rain, etc.), the gym is there waiting (no need for sunscreen, even). Second, there is a wide choice of modes: Don't like treadmills? Try the ellipticals, or the stationary bikes, or the stair machines. Third, there are all kinds of group classes, which are normally free with membership. At first, I just used the treadmills, but then I decided to try some classes. Best move I ever made. I had my first ever experience with yoga there, and started doing a weight class twice a week, which is just great for us seniors who are all naturally (if slowly) losing muscle mass. I met some fantastic instructors (and some mediocre ones too of course). The view from here? Take the plunge!
