Is it just me, or does time seem to be dragging on this winter? This dreary cold is stretching out the days for me. I am more than ready for things to thaw and to put away my bulky shapeless coat. The little time I spend outside these days is... Read more
Marking time
Monday, February 16, 2015      3 comments

Something I have noticed since my doctors put me on this diet, which is my first experience with dieting, is that I mark time by meals now. Since I have almost eliminated snacking completely, 99% of my consumption is during my 3 meals each day.... Read more

I have developed an unexpected fascination with my collarbone and ribs. Over the years, without my realizing it, they had seemingly disappeared, under a thickening layer of fleshiness. Now that the fat layer is thinning, my collarbone has beco... Read more

Today marks 13 weeks on the PSMF for me, and 35 lbs lost. That's an average of ~2.7 lbs per week. I'm 8 lbs from my target of 135 lbs, with 4 weeks to go, so I think my goal is just barely achievable, given that the last couple of weeks I have... Read more

This low-carb diet has done interesting things to my body. For example, I am cold a lot now. Granted, the last month of winter has been rather brutal, but I am cold indoors. The thermostat is set for 72F in my office, and sometimes I am cold ... Read more

These last 10 pounds seem to be taking for-e-ver to get rid of! I've stopped weighing myself every morning because it was starting to make me a little anxious. And I've noticed that it's harder to not snack and to stick to my tight serving siz... Read more
Low carb jerky = leather nuggets
Wednesday, February 11, 2015      0 comments

In my quest for a low carb, low fat, low cal, high protein snack, I ordered several meat jerkies from Amazon. One was a traditional beef jerky which came in small flat pieces, but the lack of sweetness and fat meant that it tastes like like che... Read more

Work has been very stressful the last couple of weeks. Normally I would comfort myself with snacking, but that is forbidden now and it is a struggle to resist a lifetime habit. So instead, the size of my dinners has been creeping up the last f... Read more

Today I was at a rest stop restroom waiting for the kid and there was a full-length mirror. Now, I have avoided these like the plague for years; I always look away quickly when I see one and avert my eyes until it's safe. Today I decided to fa... Read more
Sticking out like a sore thumb

Today I had a work dinner out. Everyone else enjoyed a variety of fried appetizers while I looked on. I ate only the protein and veggies on my dinner plate while others at the table had copious amounts of starch to go with theirs. We were stu... Read more

There weren't many perks to my being 30 lbs heavier. One - perhaps the only - was that I had convinced myself that at least *some* of my curves were attractive. I've noticed in the last couple of weeks that there's much less muffin top, which ... Read more

At my last annual checkup, my BMI was just barely in "obese" territory. The past couple of months have seen my BMI slowly drop through the stretch of "overweight" until yesterday, when my weight dropped low enough to give me a BMI just barely l... Read more

I enjoyed reading LAVENDARFIRE87's blog today listing her 6 reasons she wants to lose weight. So here I am, thinking about my reasons. 1. I want to avoid having to take blood pressure and cholesterol medication. 2. I want to be able... Read more

Had another followup visit with one of my doctors today. She was happy about my progress, and decided that my blood pressure has been stabilized well enough to take "hypertension" off my list of issues. Hooray! But then I had my blood drawn f... Read more
