Well, I have not been good on the diet or posting here. Today is a good day. Down 2.2 pounds to 240.4. Oh and I have new running shoes so I guess that means I will be doing the couch to 5k program, wish me luck. I have not run since junior high school

Thank you! I think it'll be fun, or at least one thing of the bucket list... :)

Going the wrong way - +1.6, now 244. That's 3 weeks in a row with a gain.

After a bad month and a few weeks of not posting I am under 240 again. Down 2 pounds from last week to 239.2. Also a 10 day streak of 10,000 steps per day with a 7 day average of 13,000.

New shoes, I guess this means I have to start the program now. Any tips for stretching ?

Well finally something good to report - after 4 weeks of gain I lost 2.6 pounds and along the way I logged over 90,000 steps in the last week.

Can anyone confirm that 1% or 2% milk is better for weight loss that Skim (fat free)? I heard something about that suggesting that your body needs some amount of fat.

Also, if I am supposed to have a vitamin as WW suggests with healthy checks, what would be a good one for 50+ male and type 2 diabetic?

While fat is a necessity to any healthy diet, I think you'll find pros and cons of getting it through milk if you search hard enough. I go by taste, and Fat Free is good enough for me for what I use it for. I also use Almond Milk, which I can drink a glass at anytime... 8oz if 1PP. I prefer to use the healthier fats, like Olive Oil and such, which I can use for cooking.
