started Low Carb based on Protien Power Plan
Cutting out all flours, starches, and sugars.

It is July 1 and I am not craving sugar anymore and do not miss the starches in my diet. I feel better and my arthritis seems to be a LOT better! I do not have the aches and pains I usually do and the stomach upset is almost all gone!!. I am really trying to learn this program and it is a struggle at times and I get frustrated sometimes because this is a learning way of eating. But--I CAN do it and do it right and lose lose lose!!

    Hey there JoyceAnne,

    I am so glad you liked the funny sayings from Deep thoughts. I am trying not to take everything so seriously especially stressing out on my recent weight gain. But it looks like I might be ending May with a wash. (break even) Which I will gladly take :) there is always June to work on the weight loss. Right?

    Hope you are doing well and that we all find something positive to reflect on for the month of May. I myself am thankful for the cute ducklings I get to see every lunchtime as I walk around a local pond. Please stop by and let me know what you are thankful for.
