Miraculum's Journal, 09 November 2018

It's a miracle that I gained only 5.5 pounds since August 25, 2018.

I've been eating sugar in every known form to man (almost always combined with chocolate), sunflower-and-honey bread mortared with real butter (butter is keto, y'know), and cookies. Oh, and some real food. I've eaten real food -- some of it even keto!

I turned 65 yesterday. (Funny: I feel the same as an OLD fat person as I did when I was an adolescent fat person. Fortunately, the husband is different.)

So, my FS buddies, I'm planning my meals for tomorrow, starting with a 60g carb cap. Time, once more, to get serious.

Happy birthday, and I'm so glad for you to be back. Super that you only gained a little over 5 lbs. Determination will drop those so quickly!

I don't believe in miracles, but I do believe in you. I believe that while you may have given over to the sugar monster for a little while, you managed to maintain many of the lessons and healthy habits. I bet you weren't eating nearly as much as you think, but it's our nature to focus on our flaws and failures than our strengths. It's quite likely that most of that 5 lbs is due to inflammation from the sugar, not actual stored fat. Getting yourself back on track will smooth out this bump in the road in no time at all.

Shuleh, that picture is about five years old, and I was still coloring my hair. Look for the new one! Both curls and color are now natural. I used to think that I had few wrinkles because the far plumped then out -- till I went to a reunion and saw that the two can coexist!
