Do you use the library,Mel?

I love being able to download books. I am decluttering and do not want to bring any more books into the house. I order or books from iBooks as well. There are lots of free ones.

Hi and welcome Boop!!

Glad this thread is active.

It's really nice to connect with other canadians.

I am having a really hungry week. Hormones? Stress?
Hunger is normal, but my intense cravings are probably something else (other than actual physical hunger).

Oh happy March!!

My sister and I have been trying to find a low carb/high fat doctor without any luck but did come across Dr. Jay Wortman who is in Vancouver. Wonder if any of you have heard of him?

Hello Fellow Canadians

Hi Everyone ~I was on this board lots 5 years ago but this is now the 3rd time I have re-started. I am in Vernon, BC - had met some GREAT low carb friends but I have a terrible memory. I have gained 43 pounds and like I mentioned on another thread - my mobility has really changed :-(

Good morning fellow canucks and welcome to the new folks

Have a wonderful weekend planned,meeting my daughter for shopping and lunch,then out to dinner and a hockey game with dh. Tomorrow....nothing! Other than church,I have NOTHING planned. That never happens and I am so happy to have a full day just to putter around the house,or cook or go for a walk.....yippee!
Hope the weekend is good to all of you

I have had a good relationship with a Naturopath (on Vancouver Island) who is open and encouraging to my diet changes. That may be another avenue to consider.

As long as you don't give up, that is the key. You can do it!

Hi Cindy!

I'm newish here, so this is probably the first time we've met! But welcome back.

I'm sorry to hear that your mobility isn't what it used to be. But I'm glad you're giving LC another go! **hugs**

It's not bad - plus three today. Though it's VEEEEERRRRY windy, so that makes it feel a lot colder than it is.

Haha, I wouldn't want to run in this wind - I'd feel like I wasn't going anywhere! (Not that I run much - I'm such a bad runner, it's kind of sad, really.)

Happy Sunday to you too, Mel!

I'd like to run, but I find it so hard. I don't think my cardio is that horrible, though - I mean, I can rip pretty fast on the ellipse, and I can bike 50km in a day, but running confounds me.

How did you work yourself up to run farther?

Happy Sunday :-) Had a GREAT couple of days. So far so good. Weather was quite warm which is causing flooding in some areas :-(

One day at a time!!!

WTG! Weekends are usually a challenge for me,glad to hear you did well over it. I had yesterday without huge plans,so after church,we went to Costco,then home to putter around. Spent some time organizing my office and then for a walk in the afternoon. It sure felt like spring!

Dh and I did this program a few years back to train for a diabetes run fundraiser. Worked really well for me,but alas,my old knees just don't permit long runs anymore. I walk alot,golf,play tennis and dance. Also swim and go to the gym regularly,although I really do miss the running.

Haha, shows how much I know! When you said you did couch to 5k, I thought you were being tongue in cheek about it. I didn't realize it was an actual program!

Hi everyone,

Just catching up on what's going on here.

Cindy Welcome back and gl!

We got at least 10cm of snow yesterday in Calgary, but not too cold this morning -9.

I did the couch to 5k a few years back. The most I ever did was a 10k. I really liked it at the time. Seems so long ago now....

Happy Tuesday Canadian Friends ~ Beautiful sunny day in Vernon. Not as warm as it looked.

So far my week has been good. Tomorrow will be a challenge - a luncheon and a dinner meeting

Oh and I walked 4 laps at the arena.

Enjoy your evening!
