It only happens every year
You can set your clock and calendar to it
A big plate of meat
Still can go LoCarb -
Ham, Turkey, and green beans
I am - or was - sensitive to turkey....
When I was really heavy, I would eat it,
and almost fall out!
Now, as before I gained weight, it wasn't a problem!
I just took a little bit. To try it.
Did you see that movie "Fearless" ?
From 1993 (link)
After my own NDE, I now try all kinds of things
I never would have tried before.
Like eating turkey.
The guy in the movie ate a strawberry,
even though he had always been allergic to them.
And like talking to people
who are way high out of my league.
That doesn't always work out so well for me.
But no one can say I didn't try!

The Food Network
Many many shows use sugar right in the meat or glaze!
Ask yourself this:
Why does eating out taste so much
better than what we cook at home?
Because we don't see all the salt,
sugar and fat they put in it
to make it taste so darn good!
One way to make sure you stay on plan
is to eat a little something before you go.
And to bring your own dish, to make sure there will be
something there you can have. Ok. that's two ways, eh?
A treat is a "treat" just a couple of times a year....
not every meal of every day. That's why it's special!
I actually have the occasional slice o' cake/sweets.
I do LoCarb, but really, I can have anything I want.
If something is off -limits, I sometimes want it more.
I'm not just a member of the Dumb-Ass club...
I'm President! Of the Local chapter, at least.
The thing is: logically - is it worth the aggravation,
and cravings, and calories? (Not always.)
Is it going to help me reach my weigh-loss goal,
or hinder me? (Not always a big help.)
You can cheat,
but you really only ever cheat yourself.
Plus in the case of LoCarb, it has been said that it's good to cycle off
every now and then. I don't know about that - "real life" provides
more than enough opportunities to cycle off for me!
Me in the little pullover I seldom take off -
And a splendid time was had by all!
Hope your day is great as well!
