LC Tip of the Day: #231
Saturday, January 19, 2019      1 comments

Figure out what you want MORE than food. Burn it into your thoughts --create an “inspirational memory” of it. See, feel, touch—involve all the senses in your “memory.” Call it up when you are facing temptation.... Read more
Why write a note to your future self?
Sunday, January 06, 2019      1 comments

It is SO easy to forget how we feel -- I suggest writing it down in as much detail as is meaningful-- as a heartfelt note to your future self. Be eloquent! Then, when you are tired and unmotivated and tempted to slide back into old habits, read ... Read more

The point of due diligence is accountability. Keep counting accurately even when you make bad choices to prevent spiraling out-of-control! You're more likely to straighten up your act/make better choices sooner.... Read more

Be mindful. Check in with yourself before making food choices and ask yourself if you are physically hungry or if you are eating for another reason such as boredom or procrastination. If you are not physically hungry, walk away. Find something e... Read more
Keto Macronutrients -- HOW MUCH?
Saturday, October 06, 2018      0 comments

It's frustrating: nobody says definitively what they are!!! Lots of research proved that nobody was going to say definitively! But all that research showed me the reason why... it is because it is the only diet that actually realizes that ever... Read more
Why is it important to me to lose weight?
Tuesday, August 28, 2018      1 comments

If you are struggling to define your "why" one thing to consider is whether or not you have a personal or emotional investment in what you are trying to accomplish. If the answer is "no," then you need to go back to the drawing board and start o... Read more
Somebody asked me why I fasted..... (fascinating tidbit of info here!)
Friday, May 25, 2018      4 comments

Here's my answer: I've been learning. I'm well past menopause, and I've reached the point my mom always warned me about -- weight loss is very very slow to non-existent. Or is it just me and I should know better? So I looked for more, different,... Read more

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (ummm, that's me, going to court)
Monday, May 07, 2018      3 comments

I had my court trial date today. I've been losing sleep over my traffic accident for 6 weeks now, and I got a call late Friday that they wanted a continuance (delay in court date). I gave up being at my favorite uncle's funeral (he died 3 weeks... Read more
Another week, another 3 pounds
Saturday, April 14, 2018      3 comments

I've been trying to be very disciplined with this keto, very low calorie, protein-sparing diet I'm trying out. My limits are strict: 850 calories, less than 20 total carbs, 85-90 grams protein, and less than 60 grams fat. This is my second week... Read more
Switching to Keto: why, what, and how
Saturday, April 07, 2018      2 comments

I suppose things are different because I'm a 62 year-old woman. I slowly slipped as planned into eating LC. But after 3 weeks and no weight loss to speak of -- not even the initial rush of water loss, I decided to go VLCHF -- and with that de... Read more

Update: I've returned to regular exercise, including leading. Funny, but I have to take short "breathers" when someone else is leading, but I manage quite well when I'M doing the leading. The "breathers" are becoming shorter in duration --... Read more
Update on Pneumonia Recovery:
Saturday, March 10, 2018      2 comments

Physical status: much the same as last month -- only I don't "feel" the sputum in my lungs anymore. I am coughing much less. My lung capacity seems to have slipped a bit --either because I am no longer taking medicine or because I've stopped ... Read more
This past week
Sunday, February 11, 2018      3 comments

I've felt better and better, although my breathing capacity hasn't improved and I can still feel that last bit of leadenness (phlegm) in my right lung. I went to exercise Wed. and Friday and did okay. I can tell it has been so long since I've... Read more
...happy to report, 1 week later I went again to Zumba! With no ill effects!
Saturday, February 03, 2018      2 comments

I continue to work at erasing the effects of pneumonia (coughing up mucus and deep breathing to increase lung capacity). I almost feel normal. I've been missing my friends, so I went to Zumba yesterday. I repeated what I did last week -- the o... Read more
