31 December 2010

regular holiday

It's Brisket time in the Pseudo-South....
Texas is a whole 'nother country.
and not in the South per se
Although it might very well be south of where you live!
And probably is!

Brisket with Sugar Free Pancake syrup and hot sauce.
It's pretty good!


My new fave snack is Pork Rinds with cheese...
Made like nachos...
And covered with hot sauce!

Can you really lose weight eating cheese and brisket?
Yep. You can. It's called "LoCarb."

Still holding strong on the Yerba Mate
and no coffee, no Monster Energy Drinks.

Divide up the stash of peanuts....
Although I think it would behoove me
to drop them altogether for now.
I found the Yerba Mate has a few carbs!!
Who knew?

More to the point - the bigger question is
Now What? 
Time to dig a little deeper 
into my Problem Solving Repertoire
and see what needs to be done - and do it!

I can cut back here and there - 
it's all good!

LOW carb is not NO carb.
(But it IS the new Low Fat!)

Conflicting reports show anywhere from 2 - 8 grams 
of carbs per serving. How can that be? Is it even true?

My Mother used to say that every thing is either animal,
mineral or vegetable. Or VitaMeataVegamin.
She always loved and accepted me.
I'm lucky that way. Probably more lucky than I know.

I found this while cleaning out old emails and files from
my Mac. Out with the old. To make room for the New and
Improved! This was 1998 - ish. Hi Mom!
She would be 90 if she were still living.

I couldn't take her anywhere!
She was always fun and the life of the party.

This was probably the first time 
she had ever seen a computer.
Even one with no sound.

I have a good feeling about this whole 
New Years thing....
Thanks to Everyone who has been so 
supportive and kind through my
amazing and occasionally tumultuous
weight-loss journey!

Blogs and Kisses!
And I hope that where ever you are,
you are happy and healthy and
know that you are loved!

Happy New Year!

  8. I was trying to write down what I was eating but after much research I finally settled on south beach. Kind of a mixture of low carb/GI. It's day 3 and so far it's going well.
    Hope the new year brings you much happiness!!!

  19. Happy New Year, Anne. I hope 2011 brings you all your want for yourself. Here in Tennessee the traditional meal is blackeyed peas but we will be breaking with tradition. I think we will just nosh on whatever we find in the fridge.
