My INNER CHILD has personality

Saturday, May 12, 2012


Every time I look at this picture ...all I see is the little one on the lower right.
My INNER CHILD has personality...
she pops up looking for mischief from time to time
and she always manages to get my attention.

Well my friends...once again...I lost another pound
that makes 2 this week.
I want to thank all of you for your encouragement...
and YES...we all need to find what works for US...we ARE individuals.

I'm eating 6 cups of veggies and still only doing around 50-60 carbs a day...
I am not eating starches. I feel great. I feel euphoric.
Maybe it's a combo of losing, finally feeling successful, having more energy,
getting a different body image, and satisfaction in what I'm doing....
Knowing that I have found something that is working for ME.

I tried on a pair of slacks from ancient history and the legs that were once too tight...which is why I didn't wear them ... are now extremely loose.
And the waist gap is now beginning to close. ....FINALLY
This in comparison to what it was the last time I tried them on
which is a big indication that my belly fat reduction has truly begun.


today is DAY 9 of 6 weeks Dr Kruse Leptin Reset.
Lost yet another pound...Feeling Great....
I'm still going strong on my experiment low carbs/high protein
50 grams of Protein At Breakfast Everyday Within 30 Minutes Of Rising,
eating around 150 grams of protein a day
trying to Limit Carbs to Below 50 Grams Per Day of Nutritionally Dense choices
For About 6 To 8 Weeks.

Yesterday I went slightly over on my carbs...had 57 grams of carbs
3 cups zucchini
1 cup collard greens
1 cup spinach
1 cup eggplant

I plan to stick to more of the collards, spinach, brussels sprouts and cabbages from now on....they are more nutritionally dense...

    I didn't used to like brussells sprouts, until I learned that roasting them with a bit of olive oil, garlic, and lemon turns them heavenly!
Enjoy your veggies. :)

    Isn't it great to find old clothes that fit again!

You're an inspiration, Sheryl! Thank you!

Congratulations on saying good riddance to another two pounds!

I almost forgot! I had a feeling that little one at the bottom was the personality you were referring to. LOL... I have one of those too!!

Have a fantastic rest of the day!

    Hee HEE . . . I guessed it would be the lil one on the right! CUTE!!

Seriously, congrats on 2 lbs. kicked to the curb. Keep it up! IT'S WORKING!

HUGS to you. Thanks for making me smile with that picture. I think my inner child resembles that lil one too . . . always the mischief maker. Imagine what we could do if we teamed up.

    Yes that is the one I'd pick for myself too! Try to label me (too fat, old etc.) and that is the response I'd give!! emoticon

    I love your inner child.... and also staying low carb is huge in feeling good. It's like eliminating a huge dose of sugar. Don't forget to eat some healthy fats along with low carbing.... You will enjoy more stable energy.
Best wishes.... I will now try to find a representation of my inner child... thanks.. that was fun!! Suzanne emoticon
