Well I've Done It Again..
I had a tangent off into extreme eating/dieting mindsets and just pretty much wasted the last 6 weeks. I have such a problem with disordered eating.. I know subconsciously I must been looking for a quick fix even when I logically KNOW there is no such… View Post
Yesterday I had 1400 calories.. I used a Lean Cuisine for a diet lunch and had some cottage cheese and a can of splenda peaches (110 cal can) for my afternoon snack..for dinner I made salmon with key lime spice.. instant brown rice (1/2C) with sofrito… View Post
Day One Was Successful
I am feeling good this AM. I did great yesterday. its not hard at all yet obviously because I can eat 1700-1800 calories a day and still drop weight.. i even had a 4oz (very small for me!) glas of red wine before dinner. Today will be a good day too… View Post
Many False Starts Lately (re-starts!)..
But I think it’s finally sticking. This AM I woke up and had no cravings for sugar.. sweets.. no cravings at all except for lots of GREEN.. I got the stuff to make a green smoothie. I have been so restrictive in my eating over the last 18 months.. back… View Post
I Almost Deleted Half My Blog..
Because I feel like such a flake. I go back and forth and then onto another freaking diet. I keep picking these extreme ways of eating and I see now it’s never going to work for me…. ever. I have too much weight to lose to not have a way of eating I… View Post
Just been totally screwing my diet to hell..
I am not sure what is wrong with me. I think I am dealing with depression. There is just no motivation anymore. I feel like a slug. I don’t want to go outside.. I don’t want to do much of anything except eat and sleep and watch TV. I feel great guilt… View Post
Today is a very low carb day...
I had a bit of an issue last night with cravings so I decided to throw in a day or two of very low carbs to reign in my desire for sugar! So far today has been good. I am having to up my intake of salt (I won’t go into the reasons why you need much more… View Post
Down another pound..
This AM I weighed 230.4 I am eating what can still be considered low carb.. I am just not doing Atkins.. It would be considered Primal or Paleo actually. I having a bit of fruit and yogurt sometimes.. and an apple occasionally and last night I had 5… View Post
really discovered how extremely out of shape I am. “Out of shape” does not even really come close to describing how bad it is. I walked for 25 minutes (my first exercise in weeks) outside and by the time I got home I had to lay down I was so physically… View Post
Well yesterday was a bit frustrating to me. I was out working in the yard planting a couple of roses and with the digging and the heat (88 deg here in Orlando in Feb. folks) I got stars in my eyes.. then went gray and almost fainted. I have actually… View Post
Nothing really to post except I am down another pound.. it’s coming off slowly but I just started my period yesterday so I am probably on a gain a bit anyway. Made roast pork and wedge salad (just a nice wedge of iceburg with blue cheese, ranch dressing,… View Post
Ketosis helps me so much.
One of the reasons I have always been drawn to Low Carb is how much Ketosis helps me. When I am in Ketosis I feel like what I imagine “normal” people feel like as far as hunger. Sometimes I don’t even get hungry until after 1-2PM. Yesterday was one of… View Post
I Want to Lose Over 100 Pounds...

I weigh 99 pounds more..
today, then the day I graduated from college. I weighed in at 233 pounds this AM. I know I am overweight.. obese but sometimes I just don’t feel “that” fat. Seeing that in print… that number really blindsides me. I guess I am glad I don’t really feel… View Post
Day 3 back on Low Carb..
I have already lost 5 pounds.. I know I was really loaded with glycogen stores and gained a good deal of water weight over the last 6 weeks so I am glad to see some of it coming off quickly… Last night’s Chicken with Fennel was good.. well OK really, It… View Post
Life has been difficult the last couple of months. I am dealing with fibromyalgia which I think was brought on by getting a little too carried away with exercise.. maybe? Either way I have been in fairly constant pain for weeks. My legs and hips really… View Post shared via WordPress.com

Okay, seriously. More gym. More exercise. More...
I fell a couple of days ago directly onto my tail bone. I thought that day it was broken because I don’t think I have ever had such pain.. I iced my bum for two days, pretty much straight every hour and today it seems to be a little better. I am very… View Post shared via WordPress.com
Volumetrics Style Cooking..
I’ve been studying up on Volumetrics style cooking.. adding tons of veggies (shredded or chopped) to just about everything you cook.. sometimes the veggies are “hidden” as purees and such. I am working on creating a veggie burger recipe just because.. I… View Post shared via WordPress.com
So I am hormonal and having an incredibly painful time this month… You know where pain is so bad you get nauseous? Thats where I was yesterday and most of last night. I actually went to our neighborhood emergency walk in for pain meds. To top it off… View Post shared via WordPress.com
