What a beautiful DAY! Wow!!! The weather here has been fantastic. Had some fun time w/ hubby today. Spent the afternoon/early evening at the beach. Just so pleasant weather wise. No swimming, just playing on the shore in the water w/ our toes... but still... WOW!

We boat watched, and people watched, we walked, and talked... we climbed way out on the jetty, and back again... it was awesome :) Then hubby took me out to one of my favorite beach restaurants. It's very casual, on the bay side w/ a dock, and boats, and seagulls fly in and around... the sun was setting, we sat outside. And the food... YUMMY!

I did have a sangria... which I am sure isn't probably low carb... but whatever! I had a 'grilled caesar salad'. Never had that before. They actually grill the Romaine Lettuce... and it was amazing! (hold the croutons - of course!) Yummy dressing and Shaved Parm Cheese. Delish! And two small Portabella (sp?) Mushrooms stuffed w/ crab/shrimp/scallops... WOWWWWWEEEEE! (hold the bread crumbs...just seafood and a cream cheese sauce.) Unbelieveably good. I will try to recreate that one!

Now to try to figure this out in my food journal...

Hope you are all well.

Much Love,
Paula

There are a bunch of things rolling around in this head of mine. I've been searching for answers and working through some of my issues.

For starters - I am not a quitter! (oh, I know... I fell HARD off the wagon!) But I am back - and working through it!!! It's weird that a few years ago (when I had no experience w/ Low Carb) - I saw people who wrote over and over again..."I did Atkins years ago...then fell off the wagon...and all the weight came back" - and I swore up and down THAT would not be me!!!

So why did that become ME!?

I didn't realize how sensitive our emotions, life events, stress, depression, etc... are - to this particular way of eating, for me anyway. I never really thought too much about the 'why' of being fat - when I had dieted in life before. (Before FS.)

And when the sensitive life events happened to ME - I crumbled. Ok, a lot worse for the wear...but coming out the other side. I have forgiven myself for GIVING UP! But it doesn't make it that much easier when you look in the mirror each morning. :)

So how did I expect to hurdle over this common issue of falling off the wagon WITH NO experience or idea what that was all about.

For starters... I lived in denial during this entire period of time - that I really wasn't eating 'that bad'. The majority of my food intake was still built (around) a low carb menu... sort of. And then I would have something (fill in the blank) that didn't belong.

Remember the Sesame St. song...one of these things is not like the other...one of these things just doesn't belong!

In my head I thought I'm still eating the way I always have (w/ an occasional treat!) HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had I stepped on a scale during this time, I would have realized the damage I was doing. But OH NO... I wouldn't want to burst the delusional bubble I was in. Then I couldn't continue to do this.

Depression is a sickness...in more ways than one.

And did anyone here at home or at church SAY ANYTHING to me about it? NO. No one.

Hmmm?

Now that I am feeling better, stronger, clearer-headed... I am literally excited about this part of the journey. Blindsided by my own stupidity - I am learning. And learning was my #1 goal the first time around!

Guess I have reached my first BIG milestone!~

Much Love.

Hey All - I'm doing fine..been a bit stressed here at home, but nothing I won't get over. I just don't like it when people don't get along. (I'm talking about my grown kids...and they'll work it out - just makes Mama unhappy in the meanwhile).

Weather has been spectacular here (in MA) - and I'm on my way back out. But I haven't journaled in a bit...so I thought I would dash in!

From day to day it doesn't feel like much is happening...but then it never does...however, I am liking the fact that the largest size pants I own (which were TIGHT) ... NOW no longer are!!! That's measureable improvement - when you're daughter says "Mom, your pants are much too baggy...time for a new pair!"

YES!

I really didn't enjoy losing the weight before anywhere near as much as I am thrilled to be seeing it go this time!

I will be back - have some things I need to talk about in my journal...perhaps tonight.

Til then...Much Love.
