Dental Care and Whitening

Monday, September 12, 2011      5 comments

I went to the dentist last week for a cleaning. While I was there, I asked about teeth whitening. They recommended getting a dental mold made, with a whitening gel. It is very pricey, though. They said I don't have any issues that would preve... Read more

Tuesday, August 30, 2011      9 comments

Low Carb Mexican? Yes!

Monday, August 08, 2011      13 comments

When I first started doing low carb, I thought the idea of low carb Mexican food to be an impossibility. Tortillas, rice, beans - Mexican food is a land mine of grains and starches. This was really distressing. I grew up in the southwest ... Read more

Monday, August 01, 2011      12 comments

No matter what our size, we can dress in a way to flatter ourselves. When I was more overweight, I was still able to find clothes to the office that gave me a clean, polished look. If you're lucky enough to have a Nordstrom Rack in your area, ... Read more

I'm an hourglass?

Saturday, July 30, 2011      7 comments

I always thought I was a 'pear' shape because my lower body is very Jennifer Lopez. I'm not very busty, definitely not a Jessica Rabbit. When in top form, I have more of an athletic profile rather than runway model. Since I have been doin... Read more

Bodyfat is Still Falling!

Friday, July 29, 2011      5 comments

I just got a new bodyfat monitor. It's one of the handheld types. I know it's not the most 100% accurate method, but it is good enough. The newer bodyfat measurers have actually improved quite a bit. If doctors are using them, then that's go... Read more
