I am a bit hungry today. Cutting down to 1200 calories. I know to add fruit and veggies but don't have the option here. We eat what they give us and I make the best choices I can. I usually grab several fruits from the breakfast bar and yogur... Read more

Looking at my Fitbit results I’m doing well with my exercise but not as well with my food. Although my food is at the top end of my calories. Once again I took the “Are you obsessed with food” quiz. Of course the first time I took... Read more
