Down another pound today!

Just as I predicted, I am down another pound today. That's the thing about a low carb diet, the scale starts moving so fast it keeps you motivated. Today should be a good day, I've got leftover leftover pork stirfry for lunch and I'm having parmesan encrusted shrimp for dinner tonight. Yum yum!

Day 3 of Low Carbing It

Well, it's Sunday evening and here I sit comfortably stuffed from a dinner of stir fried pork and veggies. Today was our Summer Pool Party at the hotel and everyone else was allowed to have hamburger buns and hot dogs, potato chips and cupcakes. Not me, I was the girl sitting there eating my two hamburger patties with cheese. It was still good and I wasn't hungry when I finished so I succeeded in my goal of no cheating this weekend. I'm actually down another pound and more than likely will be down again tomorrow. As far as my ankles, they are still swelling but not nearly as bad as last week. Tomorrow I'm going to try working out again, I have a Mystery Shop scheduled so that's added motivation. Things are definitely looking up.

I abandoned the low carb lifestyle...Look where it got me.

About 6 months ago, I abandoned the low carb lifestyle in part because I was trying to focus on buying my house and removing the stress from my life, but also partly because of all of the drama over the Kimkins diet. The effects of that was that I have now gained back all of the weight that I lost. Every bit of it! Anyway, I'm happy to be back on track and now that I am back on the low carb diet, I hope to find many of my low carb friends.

Last week, I lost .8 of a pound by watching what I was eating. Well, today I'm going back to my low carb weigh of life(get it) because I truly feel better when I am eating low carb. Not only do I start losing lots of weight, but the swelling in my legs goes down and stays down. The swelling in my legs in addition to the arthritis is what stops me from working out. It is so much pain that to put on tennis shoes and try to walk for an extended period of time is unbearable. I know from experience that after about a week of eating low carb, most of the swelling will be gone and I can then begin to concentrate on working out.

Wish me luck! I'd love to hear from anyone on a low carb diet.

Officially back on the wagon!!!

Well, I am officially back on the low carb wagon. I have realized that when I am eating low carb, I truly feel better than any other time. Not only do I get all of the nasty processed foods out of my system, but I start losing weight and have more energy. When I do low carb, I do not have the problem with my legs that I am having now. Wish me luck!

Buy Bulk Jelly Beans

Do you love jelly beans but you don't like the mixed bags that you get at the drug store? If so, you definitely need to check out this site. Last night, I went to a Friday the 13th party at my friends house and one of the girls brought over this huge bag of jelly beans. Normally you see the mixed bag variety, but with her being Hawaiian she is really into coconut and fruity things so she only had 3 different variety. She had the rootbeer for her husband, the blue Hawaiian and a coconut one. They were oh so yummy but I loved the rootbeer ones. I have never really been a huge fan of jelly beans but I think it's because I have always just bought the assorted ones and never been truly happy with any of the flavors. My solution to that is to buy Bulk Jelly Beans. Jelly Beans
