20 pounds in about 3 months...
Friday, August 26, 2016      4 comments

I'll take it. I tracked all of my morning fasting and 2 hour after meal blood sugars for the past month. Here is what I'm learning: 1) If I don't eat keto, my 2 hour blood sugars are higher. I can't lie to myself anymore and say th... Read more
Week one of a ketogenic diet....
Saturday, July 16, 2016      3 comments

Well, it's been 7 days. It's hard to say if it's been a success, weight wise. I weigh less than I did 7 days ago, about 6 pounds less. However, the week before, due to girly issues, I had gained a little over 5 pounds. so, I'm a few ounces l... Read more
Managing Diabetes
Tuesday, July 12, 2016      3 comments

Started a ketogenic eating plan yesterday to get my blood sugars under control. It's high fat, low carb, moderate protein. It takes a little getting used to, since there is more fat and less protein than I was used to eating with low carb. It... Read more
Week one...down 2.8 pounds
Saturday, January 30, 2016      3 comments

One thing I like about low carb is that I don't have to fight cravings so bad. The downside is that I have to be rigid about what I eat. Now isn't that ironic....if I'm rigid about what I eat, I don't have as many cravings. But it's not just ... Read more
Motivation just magically appeared.

I've been praying to get me back on track for a while now. And I would start for a while, and then fall. Over and over again for the past several months. A lot of it was rebellion. I didn't want a diet telling me what to do. So I would star... Read more
week one....

I lost. My goal is to be below 210 by the new year. I think that's doable. As expected, this plan works if you work it. I need to plan a few healthy dinners a week. If I stick to my usual breakfast (coffee) and lunch (2 servings protein pow... Read more
Why is it?
Monday, November 30, 2015      0 comments

That I can go hours without eating during the daytime, but when I get home, my willpower is shot? I'm not hungry during the day. I take a protein shake for lunch and, some days, I don't drink it until I'm driving home. It's not that I didn't ... Read more
Coffee with no sugar....and other NSV's from yesterday.
Monday, November 30, 2015      3 comments

I decided, yesterday, to try making a change. I added a little extra cream to my coffee, but no sugar. It's weird. When I was younger, I added way too much cream and sugar (like 4 and 4). It was more warm milk and sugar than coffee. Then I ... Read more
How many first times...

are there going to be before it's the last "first time?" I have regained 13 pounds. I knew it was happening. If I don't monitor my eating, it's going to happen. Yet I let it happen. It was a choice I made by making poor choices. Unproducti... Read more

I did it....day one.
Sunday, September 13, 2015      3 comments

Well, I didn't do it perfectly, or how I thought it would turn out, but I did it. I made it through a whole day without any dessert or snack foods. Lately, that's been huge for me. And I think that is going to make the difference. I hate to ... Read more
Finding motivation....
Saturday, September 12, 2015      0 comments

2 months. I've been off track for about 2 months. I tried, over and over to get my motivation back, to do what I know what worked, what I know I needed to do. And I could never get there. Sometimes I was able to for a day, sometimes not even... Read more
Creating margins....

I had a minor meltdown yesterday after a big blow up with my teenager. It was only afterwards that I realized that the main cause of the fight was....me. Most of my thoughts were centered around "I need to get to work" "I don't have time for t... Read more
205.8...and where I plan to go from here.
Monday, August 17, 2015      4 comments

It was subtle, my fall from grace. First it was a week of camping, lousy internet access, not as much access to food and adequate food prep spaces, a disrupted schedule and longer days. After that, the motivation just seemed to leave. I would... Read more
There's a heath bar in my freezer..coping with cravings.
Monday, July 20, 2015      4 comments

Oh, I wanted that heath bar. It was calling my name. I'm actually surprised I made it this long. But now I know I'm not going to eat it today. Wanna know how I made it through? Here's how I coped with the craving: 1. I called it a cra... Read more
