    I didn't do wonderful but I didn't do horrible either. Friday night I volunteered to be the designated driver so I avoided any liquid calories and nobody harrassed me to drink because hey- who doesn't like having a DD? I was up past my bedtime though and truly was hungry and caved and helped e... Read more

    2/15/2015 1:11:57 PM, by IVORYGIRL1776

    High protein, low carb (no desserts, cereals, breads, flour, pasta, or fruit). So far no grains or beans. I'm going to ask the doctor if I can at least add in a serving of beans or two during the week. It's not just a little hard for me; it's SUPER hard sticking to this way of eating. I'm fighti...

    2/8/2015 9:03:59 PM, by TIFFA409

    I have never taken/posted a "before" picture. This is hard for me, to expose myself to the world. I had to force myself to stop sucking it in and take a "this is the real me" photograph. I am down 9 pounds from my highest/starting weight, so I am a little late with this. Better late than n... Read more

  • Super Bowl Snack Madness

    2/1/2015 7:09:35 PM, by IVORYGIRL1776

    Yesterday on Facebook I saw a post by an old classmate asking what everyone's "snack menu" was for the Super Bowl. WOW! it was amazing how much food some folks were preparing; they were providing a feast for their fellow watchers rather than a snack or two. My thoughts were all over the place; wi... Read more
