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.

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

thanks - I found a recipe for the cauliflower pizza base - sounds easy - I shall definitely try it - seems the egg white and flour hold it together

Hi. No, I can't claim for the pizza - it's just a meal-allowance attached to the hotel bill that's covered. Sorry to arouse a hankering for pizza - here's a recipe for a carb-free one which is very tasty (it's from Rose Elliot's book Low GI Vegetarian Cookbook):-

you cook a chopped onion in a small amount of olive oil until golden
mix half of them into some mashed butter beans, add a bit of water to make like mashed potato consistency
spread this mixture on a bit of greaseproof on a baking tray
make a tomato topping by mixing the other half of the fried onions with some canned tomatoes and herbs, salt and peppter
spread on top
add some chopped red pepper, black olives, small amount of finely grated strong cheddar
bake for 20-30 mins at 200c.

It won't cut into pieces, it's soft and mushy, so you need to scrape it off the paper with a spatula or something -but it TASTES divine!
