a rant you don't want to read
Monday, May 03, 2010      2 comments

If somebody asks a question, I answer the question (if I can). I don't feel compelled to point out that they are WRONG in my opinion. Frankly, I know it is my OPINION, and not a proven fact. I don't feel compelled to drip snotty attitude on ... Read more

Sunday, May 02, 2010      2 comments

It is really delightful to have the encouragement of visible progress: shrinking tape measurements, smaller numbers on the scale... and on a plateau, you aren't getting it; and you are frustrated. It's time to refocus. You've already lost... Read more

Title says it ALL -- except for my frantic feeling of disappointment. It is just 2 pounds, but it wipes out a whole month of effort; and I HAVE been TRYING! I even went back on Induction! I'm aggravated, and irritated, and frustrated, an... Read more

You've been low-carbing and now the cravings have hit. And hit HARD! That is normal! It is also normal (but sad, not BAD) to give into them. You are worried as you crumble. Try to explain to yourself that you are trying to change -- but ... Read more

Do You Stall with Maltitol?
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      1 comments

One can sit and ache, or one can simply go on with living life as best you can, not giving in to the dark side. It is a choice. It is a will to re-focus. It is a game! We play it with ourselves -- who do you WANT to win? So if I sit he... Read more
