Fat Fast Day 5
Yesterday (day 5) was a breeze. I was very busy again -- not at home most of the day -- so I did not eat enough. But I had plenty energy and felt pretty good. Part of that is because my back is FINALLY healing. But I got in at least 800 calo... Read more
Fat Fast Day 4
I felt light-headed intermittently, and had low energy. I did make myself some awesome baked custard, and had no trouble eating my full 1000 calories. I followed the fat fast perfectly today -- and by MY calculations I should've been well ove... Read more
Fat Fast Day 3
Yesterday was a mixed bag. I was busy. I was hungry. I didn't eat. When dinnertime rolled around, the stars aligned and I had time to eat and food to eat! The thing is, you eat fat, and you feel full fast. And on the fat fast, I'm eating ... Read more
Fat Fast Day 2
Yesterday, I was hungry and thirsty until evening. Except for a handful (1 oz) of almonds, and too much guacamole, and 2 strawberries, which resulted in a too-low-fat-percentage for the day, I managed to stay within limits of the fat-fast. Whi... Read more
Fat Fast Day 1
Day 1 is always the hardest and the easiest. Hard because I'm not hungry and I am tempted to either completely fast (no solid food at all), or I'm tempted by the food that I still must cook for the rest of the family. I KNOW the research shows... Read more
hard to do
I think about making a blog every day.
But I don't.
Right now, energy and enthusiasm are low. My back really hurts. Other times, free time is low.
I haven't even been tracking or logging my food. So while I am still dieting, I'm not los... Read more

Just having a hard day, week, life...
It is just a bad week. Ken is REALLY trying my patience. Am I the only one in the world with a bad marriage? I get so envious of those with loving marriages. And I think Ken and I love each other, but it is like cats and dogs and it always h... Read more
a rant you don't want to read
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
Learning to LOVE a Plateau
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
Better, but still lost
