The best "butter" is those made from olives - ASDA do their own or there are a few different brands available

Oh, Liz.The meetings are every Wednesday morning...the core sessions are the first 4 weeks...I told them it was difficult for me to get there on my own, and of course my daughter cannot keep taking time out of work to take me...although she came from Marlow where she works to pick me up in her lunch hour, but she needs that time to relax, so am hoping I will find someone in the group who drives there...although most from this area would be able to walk I would think...however...shall see how the first 4 weeks go, get out of it what I can and see what can be done, then review the situation.

Very tired today, but bought my pedometer on line yesterday and it arrived this morning, so shall see if I can maintain a steady number of steps and increase them from time to time. Oh, yes......the butter from olives..must put that on my shopping list for Maurice for tomorrow....

Hello all.....the pre diabtic group were talking about exercise last week.....if legs are difficult, then exercise arms, shoulders, turning and bending whatever you can do at various intervals during the day....they had a table set up with various (plastic) foods...from salad to potato chicken, beer,butter...and asked each team to put them in order of high calories...well....it turned out the contents all the same 100 calories, but of course the salad better for you with fibre than the butter and fat content...next week they will talk about cholesterol and fats....so will keep you up to date...fibre is good of course...but can't remember the daily calories count...I know I told her that was too high for me and then she went on to pedometer and the number of steps...I told her no way would I ever reach 10,000/day.....but of course everything is relative to other complex health issues, but she seemed annoyed that I pointed out I shall push the boundaries for me a little but with heart issues I do know my limits....and so do the majority of people attending..however...shall see what transpires.

Your in put is very interesting Mary, I shall exercise every day what I can , and I have a little peddle bike I can use sitting down as long as I take my weight off of knees then they don’t hurt. Then i I can pedal.

Regards food and drink I have a lot of water, and eat weetabix with fruit, that is the best for fibre, I have a book that is about counting calories in every food you can think of.

So as you say we all know our own bodies, I hope you learnt a few things about diabetes and glad you told the teacher a few things. Look forward to hearing about next week I hope you are able to go. I have lost a stone and a half by just eating 1500 calories a day.. trouble is it has all come off my legs and I still have a big tummy. But that is because I had a complete hysterectomy 9months ago.

Since having the excessive water retention on legs in the summer and since lost 2 stone am allowed to juggle the diuretics a bit...trying to retain the weight I am and not increase or decrease any more...not easy but limit at the moment my fluid intake to one and half litres per day with 60 mg of the water tablets per day, but can cut those to 40mg per day....then if weight rises go back to 60mg per day...not rocket science, but hate having to even think about these things..however, health is of the utmost important. I have been looking for information on food and their calories, so must try and get a book. Am sure can get one on line or at local book store.....
