Well said, and agree. … The one thing I don’t do is expect certain results each week, but simply enjoy this WOE and enjoy anything that comes from it.
This a thousand times this.
Taking this from a logical and smart conscious way of thinking to a subconscious mantra has been really difficult for me.
Just noticed how good looking my phone’s photo collage has gotten! I really do enjoy food…obviously.
When is dinner? I’ll be there anytime?
There’s your Phone screen-saver. … But when folks see it, might lead to a food conversation! But you can’t blame them though.
Food porn, gotta love it.
Hey mate, what’s happening?
I’m around…but not. Thanks for checking in on me! I’ll post in a few days after I find and reattach all my wheels.
It’s been an enjoyable few weeks, but it’s time to get back in the wheelhouse and get it going again.
Ps: I got a sous vide!
Oh boy! Man, I can’t wait to see what THAT brings
How are things going Don?
I think he is too busy with his new sous vide😉
Is the Sous Vide, the new ‘Watching the grass grow?’ …
Dunno, does watching it grow make it delicious?
Just effin’ wow.
I owe a lot of people in here an apology…or a thanks… or both.
I checked out of Keto and this forum back in December to ‘relax and enjoy the holidays’. After all, I was riding the wave of having just lost abt 110 lbs in 7 months, so WHY NOT, right?
Well, I’ll tell ya why not.
Because 40+ years of bad eating habits just don’t go away because I’ve made some adjustments temporarily that led to me losing a few pounds. Those habits have been lurking in the shadows, waiting for me to ease up.
A sweet here. Some chips there. What’s wrong with a little rice, right?
I didn’t go off the rails and start pounding down whole potatoes and washing them down with 2 liter jugs of Real Coke. Nah, it was worse! I ate just enough shite to be CLOSE to keto…but far enough from it to keep me out of ketosis. You know what they call that? SAD…The Std American Diet: High fat AND too many carbs.
I haven’t weighed myself (yet) but will hazard a guess that I’ve gained 20 lbs… I’ll know for sure next week. I’m still wearing my “smaller” clothes I’d shrunk down to early December, but I feel like a whale. A dead, bloated whale. Like, “I want to explode” kind of bloated.
I’ve not been on this forum until tonight. I hadn’t seen notifications abt all the fantastic notes of concern and caring that had piled up in my inbox. Imagine my surprise. I came on tonight out of desperation abt my slide. I was considering confessing even.
Instead, I was made all weepy by the notes. You all rock. You epitomize what a support group can be at its finest. I am revitalized and far more hopeful now than I was an hour ago.
(Apparently you can tag TOO many people in a post. Huh. I’ll add a reply to add more…
If I missed anyone I apologize. I’m tired and I’m bad at tagging.)
See you all in the coming few days.
WOOT! Don is back!!!
If this happens, we NEED video.
