Spring fever
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      3 comments

When we were frozen in winter, life seemed to move slowly and I couldn't wait for the thaw. Now that most of the snow has melted, life seems to have sped up, and I'm having a hard time keeping up at work and at home. We're only a few days into... Read more
No superpowers after all
Tuesday, March 17, 2015      2 comments

In the last few days, I have successfully resisted three birthday cakes, birthday cupcakes, home-made cookies, and ridiculously over-iced donuts. All while watching family and coworkers indulge on the same. But I'm only human, and there's only... Read more
Slippery slope

Dark confessions: I had a chocolate yesterday. Or maybe that should be milk chocolate confessions. I haven't had a sweet since mid-November but yesterday I caved in because our son came visiting this weekend bearing gifts. He brought us a sm... Read more
The best gift
Sunday, March 15, 2015      5 comments

We are celebrating two family birthdays today, and even though neither is mine, I am enjoying the best gift: our oldest is home to celebrate. There is nothing that feels better than having our family intact under one roof. This will be brief ... Read more
Stuck on me
Saturday, March 14, 2015      3 comments

My scale seems to be stuck. The number oscillates a bit from day to day, but it's not dropping anymore. I'm a little disappointed, I admit, but I'm also a little relieved - I am getting weary of this diet and looking forward to re-feeding. If... Read more
An epic test of willpower

I feel like superwoman surrounded by kryptonite right now. Our kid is having a birthday sleepover on Friday. After dinner tonight, I put together a lasagne which is in the fridge waiting to be put in the oven for the party. But low-carb me wi... Read more

I am delirious with disbelief right now. To understand why I'm losing my mind a bit, I will do a bit of soul-baring here. I buy most of my clothes from one company, because the sizes are consistent, the clothing sturdy, and I can order online ... Read more
Strike zone
Wednesday, March 11, 2015      2 comments

Last night, as I battled the beast, I looked down and noticed the jiggle and wobble of my legs. Or specifically, my upper legs, since my calves are relatively firm and less worrisome. And I also thought about how pleased I am with my shoulders... Read more
To log or not to log
Tuesday, March 10, 2015      4 comments

I have not been logging my meals. PSMF is so restrictive that there's no point: I eat 3 meals a day, of 3 servings of protein and 2 servings of veggies, in total. And supplements. Well, and occasionally I give in and snack on some peanuts. ... Read more
Treading the beast
Monday, March 09, 2015      4 comments

I refuse to let anyone see me and my jiggly jello-y thighs in shorts. So this means I won't go to a gym, and instead when I can motivate my lazy butt, will work out in the basement, after giving the family orders not to look my way. Since my d... Read more
Spring fever
Sunday, March 08, 2015      2 comments

My brain is a little whack these days. I veer wildly between impatience/frustration at my slowing rate of weight loss, to unbridled optimism, as evidenced by my recently ordering two pairs of pants a size smaller than what I am wearing now. So... Read more
Ready, set, slow
Saturday, March 07, 2015      2 comments

The first few weeks on this diet, I averaged a loss of 3 lbs/week. That average dropped to 2.5 lbs/week for a while, and now seems to be around 2 lbs/week. This week seems to be even slower. The last few pounds are taking for-e-ver to come of... Read more
Spin me round
Friday, March 06, 2015      2 comments

Today I found myself feeling dizzy for short periods throughout the day. Fortunately I had been warned to be prepared for this, since it's a common symptom for people on PSMF, and I was lucky to make it through >three months on this diet before... Read more
Preparing for battle
Thursday, March 05, 2015      3 comments

I love food, and I love eating. I don't think I can overstate how much. So when I go out to eat, the best way for me to make sure I don't slip into old habits of reckless over-indulgence is to check out the menu beforehand (reconnaissance!) so... Read more
I'm so vain
Wednesday, March 04, 2015      4 comments

Yesterday's blog got me to thinking about vanity and how recently I received an unexpected compliment that, while patently false, still stroked my ego to a ridiculous degree that I will probably remember that kind woman for the rest of my life. ... Read more
