A patient's family member told me
That if I were to lose 10 or 15 more pounds,
I would be a "total knockout"!
This guy knows nothing of my previous weight loss.
So I just kinda looked at him, and nodded my head.
And I was thinking.... "He's right!"
2011 and 2013
I have been on LoCarb for nearly 4 years...
And I still love LoCarb with a true passion!
I have never doubted it, or grown weary of it.
I had a year or so when I was lamenting the fact
that I can not eat sweet potatoes like other people can...
And I was really sad about it, too!
But I didn't blame LC for that.
Having high blood glucose readings (when I go off plan)
came from YEARS of Carb Abuse....
And not from my current Carb Restriction.
I flirted with some low numbers, but never really stayed there.
Also, at first, my scales were off by 7 full pounds!
[May it rest in peace — or pieces... I ditched that thing!]
But over all I have stayed basically in the same range-
For nearly 4 years now!
Getting the weight off is hard. Keeping it off is MUCH harder!
There has to be a balance of work, and rest, and food.
Four years ago, I could barely climb the stairs to get home.
I had no energy - probably ate 800 carbs a day!
2 liters of Coke every day without fail...
Fries, Candy - anything my "heart" desired.
Work, eat, sleep - is all I could manage to do.
This was my M.O. for much more than a decade.
As I get older, and more seasoned on LoCarb,
I am no longer interested in trying different things.
I just want to do what works for me.
Not a plan... not a system... not a book or opinion.
My pancreas always forgets what it just read!
I've been stuck in this Body for over 50 years -
Maybe it's time I learned what it needs!
So now, with the new job fast approaching,
Complete with a new work (and workout) schedule -
I am ready to streamline all my efforts.
And just see where it takes me.
Why have a nice house - but keep a crappy-looking front yard?
Why not clean it up as much as my energy levels allow?
And since I have energy now, that I never had before -
I have worked out many of the tweaks of LoCarb for me.
Not too much protein - it just turns to blood glucose.
Remember - I am only 5'2"... WITH shoes on.
No junk, less fake foods, better quality...
Since I got sick last month with the flu,
I never really got my appetite back.
I eat about half of what I ate before.
MUCH less caffeine, no snacking, no food after 6 pm,
No wine, no cheating - and walk every day!
Still can't out-train a bad diet.
It really is quite simple!
Now.... to make it so...
