Amber! We will do it together come January! Really it is the perfect amount of time so you will feel debloated and slimmer after following plans for the almost 3 weeks before your trip!
As an aside on the hits keep coming department...
Andrew hit a deer this morning and cracked up his truck, his new (to him) truck that he has driven for exactly ONE week! Thankfully he is ok, but really??
Oy!

I'm feeling so sad today. My brother in law posted an update on my sister in laws Facebook page, and although I suspected things were not good, now it know how bad they are. The main tumor is growing aggressively as are the ones in her liver and lungs. One of her kidneys has shut down. She is in a lot of pain, but is refusing any kind of palliative care. It is impossibly hard to watch all this, so I can't imagine how hard it is to be living it! The absolute worst part is that she is so depressed, she can hardly function. She made the decision not to pursue traditional treatment so her children wouldn't see her sick, and she could have good quality time with them in the time she has left, but she is so depressed, she can't even do that. I feel so helpless! I really don't know what to do! Please everyone, include Bridget Eichel and her family in your prayers today.

She is doing great Monica. We are going to be with my family next week. We will drive down on Christmas Eve after hubby gets off work. We are going to take her to see Santa this weekend. She is still so loving everyone, so I hope she won't be scared. I'll post pictures!

OH PLEASE DO! I can't wait to see HER with SANTA. You know, my son was never afraid of Santa. My daughter wasn't so sure, but she is the youngest, I would get son in there with her and she was fine. It would be nice if she would always find comfort in his (my son's) presense. Right now, they don't get along at all. He is just always annoyed by her. DS is 15 and DD is 12! Teenagers! LOVELY! LOL

TGIF! I am so glad this week is ending. I still have a bit of this flu...just the aches and chills, not the stomach any more thank goodness, but I am still feeling blah. I was supposed to bring in stuffed peppers for our potluck at work today, but it didn't want to get anyone sick, so I'm just going to pick up bagels or something. I know I'm going to hear about it. They love those peppers! I'll make them when I am better.
I finished my shopping, now it just have to wrap it all. The tree is up, but that is about it. If I get some energy this weekend, I'll finish decorating. And of course we are going to go see Santa!

Hi Monica! And everyone. I'm back! Sorry to disappear like that! I had a rough few weeks. The last post I wrote said I was not feeling well, flu like symptoms, etc. well I went from that to a Severe fever (105). Hubs called the dr, who called in a prescription for tamiflu. I kept getting sicker all weekend and finally hubby decided on Christmas Eve to take me into urgent care. They ran some tests and called an ambulance because I was in renal failure, and my immune system was crashing. 12 days in the hospital, weeks of dialysis , and now THANKFULLY, my kidneys have stared to work again, and I am better. What a nightmare. I've never been so sick in my life! I lost about 15 lbs from not being able to eat, no appetite, etc. so now I'm trying to eat but not start gaining it all back! Not ready to go fully back on plan yet, but plan too soon!

Hey Monica!
It actually wasn't the flu. They tested for everything and we're never able to figure out what it was. Just that it made me get severely dehydrated, which injured my kidneys.
We had lots of people help with the baby, but mainly my wonderful hubby took care of her. He is so good with her, and he did great!

Meg I am so glad you are on the mend that was terrible! I watch sister wives and the 3 year old had the same thing, flu then her kidneys shut down and was in the hospital for 10 days, just watched last night, so glad you are well now! I bet Baby J was so worried about mama!

Thanks Amber! Yes, it was terrible! I've never been so sick in my life. And it was so out of left field. Life lesson...if you ever have a 105 fever, go to the dr right away! And always stay hydrated!
It was interesting to me that at the dialysis center, there was a nutritionist that works with the patients. She was very focused on making sure I was getting enough protein. I always though (no idea why) that too much protein was bad for kidneys, but she said actually most patients don't get enough. I understand because I had really no appetite at all, and what I could eat was carby...I had to force things like Greek yogurt and chicken...now that I'm better, I feel starved from all those carbs! Lord help me!
Ready for a February challenge!

Meg - that is a very true statement. If an Adult runs that high of temp, something is very very wrong! One of the things people said when Adkins first hit big was that ketosis was bad for the kidneys. I don't believe there was any truth to that at all!

I am just glad you are feeling better! How scary for you guys!

I got my port removed yesterday, and I'm so relieved that I don't have to do any more dialysis. What a crazy ride it's been! I'm getting ready to get back on a plan, just haven't decided what yet. I'm not ready to get back to hard core on low carb yet, so I think I'll probably start with phase 2 of protein power, which gives 55 carbs a day, and then ease down from there. I dropped quite a bit of weight while I was sick, and I don't want to gain it back, but I want to give my body a break. Ever since my appetite came back, I've been feeling so hungry! I've been in control of it, but I want to get on a better track, because it feel like I'm setting myself up for a binge.

Getting back on track. Not doing a real low carb plan just yet. But I'm logging my food and keeping to moderate carbs. I am planning to do this through Feb, and then transition to lower carb in March. So far so good! I had a good day yesterday, no mindless snacking , no sugar. Yay me.
I had my first day back at the office yesterday. So great. I feel like I was released from house arrest! I like working from home, but not every day. I need the social interaction I get in the office. For a while, I think I'm going to go in 4 days, and work at home 1. I feel like I missed a lot being out so long!
