  1. Another book that has been a great help to me is Gretchen Becker's book, Type 2 Diabetes: The First Year. I read it cover to cover when I was first diagnosed and now that I've settled into a routine, I'm going back and picking up those facts and suggestions that I didn't understand the first time around. WW is definitely the way to go to control both blood sugar and weight.
  2. I'm newly diagnosed and having some problems coordinating WW and low carbs. I wish WW listed the carbs with their points. I find myself fishing through several books to evaluate a meal. Any suggestions?
  3. Thanks. I emailed the Chesapeake Bagel people and asked for nutritional information. I'll let you know what response I get.
  4. Thanks for the information. The wrap I had was from Chesapeak Bagle and it was called Baja chicken. It didn't "taste" high points---but I know better than to make a judgment like that. It seemed at the time a better choice than a bagel. It was really good and if I thought the points were right, I would order it again.
  5. I have just recently discovered wraps. How do the points of wraps compare with bread? I got the wrap at a commercial restaurant so I don't know if it was low carb or low anything else---what would an "average" wrap be?
  6. I just got a new accusplit pedometer. I put it on my right side and then put my old one on the left to check it's accuracy. The new one measured more steps (about 10% more). Just for fun I put the new one on the left and the old one on the right. Then the old one measured about 10% more steps. It seems I measure more steps with the pedometer on my right side---anyone else ever had this happen?
  7. This is a wonderful site for walkers. There are goals to meet and very interesting walks. Last year I "walked" the Appalacian trail. The site keeps track of my steps and then tells me about the sites along the way. I am now "walking" along the upper US states. Try this one out---it's really great. http://americaonthemove.org/
  8. Oh my----I'm 60 miles west of Chicago and all those things are familiar to me.
  9. Thanks for the info. We do have a health food store in our small town and I'll try there. I've looked for it at Walmart and Jewell and couldn't find it.
  10. I'm not even sure of the name, but I'm looking for soy "hamburger" and I understand that I can buy it and reconstitute it. Is this right? I found some in the frozen food section, but I don't know where to look for it in the rest of the store. Can anybody help me?
  11. I'm in a similar boat---my husband has become very sensitive to salt. I have been experimenting with Mrs. Dash spices and have found them to be very good. I like the chicken spices, and the tomato/garlic/basil the best. They sell no-salt-added canned tomatoes and there is a section of the grocery store that sells low sodium soups (for caseroles--I don't like them as a soup). It's a real challenge to make food taste good when it's both low fat and low sodium, isn't it?
  12. Because I'm a man, when I lock my keys in the car I will fiddle with a wire long after hypothermia has set in. ______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, when the car isn't running very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I'm looking at. If another man shows up, one of us will say to the other, "I used to be able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and everything, I wouldn't know where to start." We will then have a beer. ______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan. You're a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you this isn't a problem. _____________________________________________ Because I'm a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, like milk or bread. I cannot be expected to find exotic items like "cumin" or "tofu." For all I know, these are the same thing. And never, under any circumstances, expect me to pick up anything for which "feminine hygiene product" is a euphemism. (F.Y.I. guys cumin is a spice) _______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, when one of our appliances stops working, I will insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that this will just cost me twice as much, once the repair person gets here and has to put it back together. ________________________________________________ Because I'm a man, I must hold the television remote control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it (though one time I was able to survive by holding a calculator). ________________________________________________ Because I'm a man, there is no need to ask me what I'm thinking about. The answer is always either sex, cars, or football. I have to make up something else when you ask, so don't ask. _______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, I do not want to visit your mother, or have your mother come visit us, or talk to her when she calls, or think about her any more than I have to. Whatever you got her for Mother's Day is okay; I don't need to see it. And don't forget to pick up something for my mother, too. _______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, you don't have to ask me if I liked the movie. Chances are, if you're crying at the end of it, I didn't. _______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, I think what you're wearing is fine. I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too. Either pair of shoes is fine. With the belt or without it, looks fine. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go now? _______________________________________________ Because I'm a man, and this is, after all, the year 2004, I will share equally in the housework. You just do the laundry, the cooking, the gardening, the cleaning, the vacuuming, and the dishes, and I'll do the rest.
  13. This recipe sounds great---but what is low fat baking mix? Kathy
