Being on the road was great fun. My daughter's swim team won the district championship by 37 points and being there to see them do it was a thrill. Both her Medley Relay team and 400 Free Relay team made State time and will compete at the Stat... Read more

Today can not be called an ultra-low carb day by any standard, LOL. What did me in was the cheesecake, absolutely delicious, of which I had a big piece because I felt a little dprived that I couldn't have too much else at the potluck. I had some... Read more

Day 12 of ultra-low carb
Thursday, October 25, 2012      3 comments

Some things are starting to make sense. I was hungry for fruit again last night and had two small apples and a few plums. This must have put my carb count around 80 for yesterday. Fortunately my weight was at 129 this morning. The reason ... Read more
How to deal with appetite/temptations for specific foods
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      8 comments

I realized that even when I'm not hungry or have physical cravings for something I can still be tempted to eat things that are not on my eating plan. I'm using the word "tempted" but this is really not the right word. It implies that there is go... Read more

Breakfast did not hold me too long. I had a double quarter pounder with cheese (minus bun and ketchup) for lunch around 1pm. I was short on time and it was either buying lunch or not having time to go swimming. I managed 40 minutes of run... Read more

I didn't sleep too well last night, kept waking up too cold, turned the heating on, then later woke up too hot, then a dog had to go out... you get the idea. I don't feel too energetic. My weight is at 129.2 this morning. I'm hoping to ta... Read more

Day 10 of ultra-low carb
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      2 comments

My energy level is a lot better today than yesterday so I assume that I was mostly lacking sleep. My weight was at 129.6 so about the same. I know my scales are not super-accurate anyhow so half a pound up or down is likely not meaningful. Eat... Read more

Monday, October 22, 2012      4 comments

My weight this morning was steady at 129.4 lbs. Given my increase in carbs yesterday it's interesting that it's not a gain. I've tried to lower my carbs again this morning but my body is not pleased I started with a low-carb pancake, abou... Read more

Monday, October 22, 2012      15 comments

I am writing this in response to a comment on one of my previous blogs and in response to a discussion on the binge eating team. I'm sure that emotional eating is one of the reasons that is almost always involved for binge eating and/or bulimi... Read more
Day 8 of ultra-low carb
Monday, October 22, 2012      4 comments

It was a long day, too many things to finish before the weather gets freezing and wet for a while. We harvested plums and I enjoyed two of them. I walked the dogs and we made enough progress on the duck barn to provide shelter, although it's far... Read more
