Thanks KimE. I think she just misunderstands the whole carbs thing. It's how we were taught when younger and it's stuck I guess. She NEVER believes me until she hears it from someone else - LOL! Jst like the time when . . . anyway!
The only time I feel tired is when I don't get enough sleep. Otherwise I often feel like running/skipping/jumping down the halls at work when I used to just moan about moving!
As I said (I think), when I get down to my target weight (or close enough), I plan to introduce more pasta & rice & stuff into my diet (and hopefully maintain some level of exercise).
What are "blood sugar spikes"? Is that when you feel down then up because you eat more sugar?
