3 weeks ago and now!
Three weeks Zero Carb has a great effect on me.
Mentally - and physically.
I just cut out everything but the main course.
I didn't even know it had a name - at the time!
I have been wearing a 34 men's pants....
[down from a 48 - remember?]
To now about a 10/12.... depends...
Wait - not Depends...
Not that there is anything wrong with that...
Well - anyways.... you know what I mean!
Eating Meat, Eggs, and Protein only...
With just a little spice now and then...
Celtic Sea Salt and Garlic Buttah on Sirloin Tips - in this case!
The so - called safe starch experiment...
That was around the Holidays....
Got up to a 36 [men's pants] .... not so good...
Those 9 pounds o' flesh show up big time -
When you are only 5'2"!!
Got back into the 34's..
Just in time for the cruise...
[We sail in 3 weeks]
On a household scale it shows 9 pounds lost -
in 3 short weeks! YAY! Weeks - not months.
We'll see the "official" weight later - on the Cross Fit scale.
I live by myself and have no one to please...
or answer to... so I try to have some integrity
about myself.... and not wear a 34 - with a muffin top!
That is to say - I would rather go up to a larger size -
Than to wiggle into a smaller size.
Even though no one would ever know it but me.
So I own a few "back-up" pants - size 36....just in case.
Now they are unwearable!
Even the 34's are nearly falling off.
Nurses who have not seen me for a year or so -
They still can not hide their shock and awe
When they see me! Nine pounds or not.
Gotta love that! However -
The conversation drops like a lead balloon
when I tell them that the first step for me
was to give up sugar and starch.
No drinking and try to work-out every day!
Doesn't sell alot of books.
We want what we want when we want it.
And will move Heaven and Hell to get it.
Or so it seems. There is just no easy way.
Simple - as they say - but not easy.
Zero Carb is turning out to be more than a
Pseudo-Induction level for me!
I don't know how long I will do ZC.
[Prolly not during the cruise, eh?]
And you can't even say I'm that strict now with it.
I never was much of a Purist - with anything!
Some people who have made ZC a lifestyle -
They only have meat and water! Not even spices.
I'm not there yet - if ever!
Gotta go - bacon's cooking!
And I think it's ready!
