I don't drink anymore. I don't drink any less either.

Hi Jan! Hope your weekend is good for you!

Hope you're having a nice bike ride and thanks for reminding me I have some almond flour and coconut flour to bake with. Sandwiches just sound so good right now!

i do bake with all kinds of gluten free flours, but this recipe has no flour at all! amazing. it's so simple...like the flourless pb cookie and the flourless pb/chocolate brownie recipes. i use honey as a sweetener for the little guys but i know that others use sugarfree sweeteners.

Enjoy your ride! Tight jeans are sexy.

I've recently discovered pure stevia. What an amazing sweetener. Now that's SWEET!

Try and not to fret! You have the tools to conquer this and I know that you will be fine once you get back to your normal schedule. Vacations have a way of derailing most.

Hi Jan! Thank you for visiting me. How are things going? I hope you're just having too much fun to journal. Did you get your flowers in?

It's cold here today and I'm hanging out with the dogs.

Hi Stacy! You doing good?

Hi All! I am actually doing good....on everything BUT dieting! It is on my mind...as I munch. I have to tell you tho, that except for my clothes being too tight, I don't care. I'm tired. I have been letting life's little irritations pile up. And, I have gained a lot of weight. I will deal with it later. Last night, I relaxed enough to cook myself a real meal - steak and artichoke - lovely!

Tomorrow, I'm going out of town for three days and expect that the change in scenery will rejuvenate me! For you California folks, I'm going to Mt. Shasta. We will play in the snow and take walks near the river...with three small boys!

My middle grandson is just 5 and will score somewhere on the autism spectrum. I am just now acknowledging that and his parents have not yet heard it. He has a preK first special education evaluation next week. He's delightful, charming, difficult, incredibly fun, amazingly bright and so high energy that he can "use up" adults quickly. I love him so much! I am so blessed.

Jan, have fun at Mt. Shasta! As for "diet" you'll arrive when you're ready and you'll mean business. I'm glad that you are relaxing and letting things take their course.

It warms my heart to hear you speak of your little boys. My grand daughters live so far away. I totally get the "using up" adults quickly thing. He sounds like a precious boy.

Enjoy enjoy! Treat yourself well. and

vacation's over, it was wonderful
weight is up quite a bit (I earned every pound)
i'm on day 2 of strict dieting...blah
all of this is pretty old stuff. so, what's new? i got some amazingly awesome news tonight about a new job for me, something i have worked long and hard for. the contract will be completed in the next few weeks for a July 15ish start date. i am too excited to sleep...which is going to suck big time in about 4 hours!

and, in a related story, i'll be in court tomorrow afternoon for what i hope is the final episode of a 3 year saga. a man is being sentenced for crimes against a school district. money that could/should have been used for the children was wasted.

Welcome back, Jan!! I was all set to PM you this morning because I was wondering if you had fallen off the face of the earth! Glad you enjoyed vacation, and SO EXCITED to hear about your wonderful job-related news! GOOD FOR YOU!!!!

And I hope this terrible chapter comes to a clean close as well. How awful!

thank you so much. the journey has been very stressful...but, you know, i attribute a huge part of my quest for health (which 1000% involves losing weight tho other things are in there too) to me trying for some control in a "beyond my control" world. so...i win. win.

and, i didn't fall off the world but i did once fall down the mountain. and decided that sledding is for kids...but i loved hiking in the woods, in snow, in a huge cave, on train tracks to a stunning waterfall (none of which i could do safely or comfortably at almost 300 pounds). and i loved sharing my room with three small boys, fires and coffee in the mornings, games and giggles in the evenings...

this was my first vacation in years, and coming home was good too (except that all the broken thing still are) i'm also enjoying the children that i teach more because i'm rested. they are very sweet.

note to self...extra weight, even a little, makes me feels like moving less, makes me feel uncomfortable, less flexible, more tired with daily routine movements...no wonder i avoided moving when i was so heavy.

i also have a little less joint pain today after a few days of detox from vacation eating. i am going to experiment a little when i get these extra pounds off. i have never had food intolerances or inflammatory responses to foods...but maybe i just never knew? for now, i'm going to tell myself that not only do carbs make me fat but they make me hurt.

what works for me...i do know (i just don't like it that much! )

i have coffee w/hwc in the morning
most days i have a prepared shake at noonish
i eat meat and veges in the evening - chicken and fish work best. i have added lettuce and cabbage in larger amounts which accounts for the increase in carbs lately to get more full and aid in digestive...um...regulation.

off to work. thanks for visiting ladies! i'll check back with you later

i'm doing well this week...down 5 pounds in 5 days. i'm feeling less bloated but still 17 pounds from where i feel best. my clothes are still tight, but i'm moving a little better. it's interesting that i am more flexible with only a 5 pound difference. but i am definitely less flexible with the current 17 pound excess. it's uncomfortable...so, hopefully, totally motivating! i need new clothes, but think i will wait a few weeks.

i also need a bunch of maintenance work done...hair, nails etc. but so far i'm being lazy (beauty rest, right ) and will most likely put on jeans and go outside soon. i do not feel pampered by shopping or beauty appointments. i feel totally bored and hate to sit still or concentrate on finding the right clothes.

i have a draft of my new contract (i can't even believe that i'm writing that!!!) and i'm so excited...but still holding my breath until it's signed (ya know?)

...and i absolutely will be purchasing a fabulous (and expensive) suit (several!!). i don't know what size it/they will be (because i haven't bought any expensive clothing during dieting) BUT...BUT...whatever size the new clothes are (the job starts in July so i have time to make some flab disappear) i AM going to fit them well...for a long time.

Talk about motivation for maintaining! Clothes that you don't want to...um...outgrow! OK ladies, i need you to put the pressure on me to get trim again. i have had the "holding on hard carb/calorie creep" thing, the "binge" thing and the "don't give a dayum" thing going on for the last three months - triple threats to maintaining a slim body.

I'll have to get some expensive jeans too

I like the "cycling" idea, which I never knew about til I came back to LCF.
I've been kind of doing it myself, almost unconsciously, so that it seems like a normal way of eating.

You go Jan!! Yes, nothing like new clothes to keep us motivated.
Have a good weekend

Glad to hear your getting back to it Jan! Just focus us on how good you will look and feel when you get back to your goal. Summer approaching, helps me just for the sheer fact that I don't want to be any more uncomfortable than need be. Plus, we gotta keep up with those little guys.
