Hello waist

I've shrunk by 4 dress sizes and have got a distinctive waistline back. Hence the page title. My weight-loss plateaued mid-2013 and then I gained about 10lbs back. I don't like how my clothes are looking tight, so I'm back on the low-carb plan.

With SparkPeople's help I am now no longer classed as diabetic or pre-diabetic.

Yes, you can definitely make any of those sort of 'raw food' recipes using the oven on the lowest setting (to be 'raw' it has to be below 105F or 41C but that's only if you're worried about whether it's raw or not). Some people say to leave the door of the oven open slightly - to let the steam out - but I've never tried it. The recipe is so simple, you can't spoil it - you could eat it without any cooking if you wanted - the balls would just be more squidgy and soft!

Thank for sharing your experience on my food and money blog - great to hear other people's stories. So glad I'm not the only one with the chocolate problem! I decided to use the money on shoes - I managed to get three pairs in the sale from Vivobarefoot whose shoes I love: one pair for my son's wedding next June, one pair for the beach & sand, one pair for all-terrain wear. Very pleased with that!

I've just caught up on your blogs since you moved. I'm so sorry that things are difficult for you, what a lot to cope with. When my mum lived with me, it was the hardest couple of months ever, I never stopped, emotionally or physically. I think I'm still recovering now.

I'm sure it must be a huge adjustment for your husband too, although that is cold comfort if you need a strong pair of shoulders to support you. It is an exhausting thing, always being 'on duty', a bit like having a baby in the house, except you have a lifetime of memories with them, and you know you need to treasure these times, whilst all you want is ten minutes peace and quiet!

Please feel free to vent to me if you need it, sometimes just knowing that you can is a help.
Lots of love,
Debs

Thank you for the comments on my blogs. It is a comfort to know that there are good people out there, willing to listen, for no other reason than they have big hearts and want to help. I hope you are well. x x
