I am self employed, work with the elderly and hate the paper work that goes along with it. I procrastinate. Need to work on this area of my life. I am on the computer too much. avoiding house cleaning and paperwork. I like to go to facebook, forums, blogs and chat rooms, this is fun to me and helps in my remaining alcohol free. This area I need to work on as well.
I have said I have an addictive personality: food, alcohol, and internet.
A trifecta. Am working on all of thee areas. It is all about moderation.
Being bipolar I have a problem with extremes. I seek balance in my life.
I am pretty much content with how things are going. I have a sweet romantic husband who loves me unconditionally. Have a nice home to live in and a rewarding job. What more could I ask for?My thigh has healed and I need to start going back to the gym. This drinking has got to slow down!
I will not give up in this weight loss journey, nor this need to be AF.

My Goals:
lose this belly fat and weight that I have gained. Make it to the gym more often.
eat more fruits and veggies!
Eat more local organic produce.
Follow a low carb diet forever.(with some cheat days here and there!)

My Program:
My goals are to lose weight slowly but surely it is coming off so slow. I am trying to follow a low carb diet, eating healthy lunches at our local health food store. I want to go to the gym on a regular basis.
I went 165 days alcohol free, which is a first! from aug12th to january 23rd 2014.

Personal Information:
on january 1st 2016, I turned 53. I have a twin. WE celebrated our 50th by going on a cruise together with my older sister. WE had a great time. Married to a wonderful man of 19 years. no kids 2 cats, named hazel and hattie. They are alot of fun.
Live in Lafayette Louisiana since 2001, love it here.
I have my own small business, work with the elderly.

Other Information:
I enjoy spending time on the internet, posting on forums giving and receiving emotional support. Enjoy seeing the regular crowd at the health food store that I eat my lunch with every day. I used to eat by myself which was lonely. Trying to get to the gym more often need to find a more enjoyable activity. Hubby and I are big LOST fans, x-files and now downton abby. WE keep watching the reruns and enjoy this in the evenings. Don't really have any hobbies.

    Your welcome. I find it admirable that we now consider 64 g of carbs a "high" day and it is higher if you are trying to lose weight. But its so much lower than what a normal day used to look like for us and for what a normal day looks like for most people. I used to hit 65 g before lunch with my protein bar and banana!

    I noted your intake for the day on one of our forums. Heres some suggestions to help lower the carbs even more. You want to lose weight? 20 carbs a day, then you increase after you reach your goal. It's not easy at first, but I am in my 10 and a half month, and I am very comfortable, and I reached goal. Now it's just a matter of how many carbs a day for me to maintain. Anyway heres the suggestions for you.

    coffee with half and half=2 (try heavy whipped cream 1 TBSP, 0 carbs)
    chicken, green beans , lentil rice, yogurt sauce=28 carbs Drop the lentil rice, add greens or green salad, (I use mayo for my dressing 0 carbs for that)
    hamburger,veggies(mixed broccoli, carrots, peppers onions)1/2 avocado, hot sauce, one ounce of cheese=15 carbs,
    total carbs for today = 45.

    Check out my recipe blogs. I try a lot of variety, keep it in the keto camp. When I stay to plan I feel so much more active and feel very very healthy. My lab reports on my diabetes 2 also show the results and what I try to achieve, and maintain.

    Remember the saying "You are what you eat!" And it shows on me. Pushing size 18 Now a size 8 (never in my adult life!!)

    And I drink lots of water.

    Hi Bizi! Have a wonderful evening! Thank you for commenting on my page! Sorry I didn't notice it sooner, I used to get emails for those but not lately.

    How are you doing?

    BF is going to be 17 and lives with his brother - who is the one who offered to let my daughter stay there until her sister got the apartment (which fingers crossed will happen Dec 15th)
