This post made my day! :smile:

On last night’s shift a nurse, just returned from maternity leave called me! "Jackie, We have pizzas ". There was a time that would have had me excited and hungryyyyy… but I politely told her “you are so kind but nowadays I am a carb free zone”! When I got to the ward she said “OMG you are…smaller”!
I’ll take it😊



Hi Jacqueline, I’m a nurse too! I’m new to Keto but if I reported everything I’m tempted with at work I’d fill the thread :joy:. What is it with nurses and cake? Any excuse for a fuddle too :open_mouth:. When I’m on shift my strategy is to avoid the staff room at all costs :grin:


Spent the late afternoon plucking carrots and parsnips out of the garden that had been wintered. They were lovely and huge. I grilled steaks for dinner, along with the carrots and parsnips. I put them in a foil pocket with butter and salt. Also had baked potatoes and a baguette. So, the family ate some of everything.
I happily sat at the other end of the table with my ribeye and dipping sauce (aka melted butter.) Never had a dinner tasted so good!!!
Earlier in the week:
Avoided the boxes of donuts and pastries in the breakroom at work.
Resisted eating homemade macadamia/white chocolate cookies.
Ignored the coffee cake at church.
Sat patiently in the car while the entire family enjoyed the 2 loaded cheeseburger and French fry special at the drive-in burger place. I drank an unsweetened iced tea, as I wasn’t the least bit hungry. This was an exercise in intuitive eating for me. Learning to eat ONLY when I feel absolutely hungry is a new thing, and I am trying my darndest to master it.

Exactly! I cover 10 wards and literally used to eat my way from 1 chocolate box to another! Overnight I just stopped and haven’t been tempted since! Spooky!

Thanks @Hardrock_keto_chick!

It’s easy to be supportive when I’m inspired by everyone here.

Y’all are THE BOMB! :bomb: :boom: :slight_smile:

That’s an amazing transition, @Jacqueline_Porter. Way to go! :+1:


Thank you!!! You’re an awesome cheerleader for all of us!!!

There are multiple factors at play here, motivating and inspiring me. The support I feel from you all is such a blessing, strengthening me constantly. Quite sure I’d fail or at least struggle immensely without you.
My brother’s untimely death last summer has had a profound affect on me. It seems to have fortified my (previously lacking) sense of determination to break past habits and food addictions. I know how devastated I was and am; but he also had a wife and two young sons, hundreds of friends and relatives, young people he had mentored, business associates, etc., that he left behind- because of an addiction to food and drink. To witness how something (food/drink) meant for our good winds up becoming the means to one’s demise is indeed profound and impactful.

Seeing my own children, wonderful husband, grandchildren, etc… makes me so thankful that I actually have been given the opportunity to turn the tide, and make the changes necessary to become and stay healthy.

Last night I did a curry night for some of my work colleagues! I ate the mulligatawny soup, chicken korma and veg curry, passed on the rice and potatoes, nans etc. Even though I had cooked them to perfection!:grin:
This was dessert, keto friendly lemon, cardamon and rose water posset, topped with a little creme fraiche, pistachios and edible rose petals, dusted with a rose gold shimmer! It was delicious!
But 1 person couldn’t come at short notice so this left over dessert was in the bin 10 seconds after its photoshoot!:innocent:
I think I had about 50 - 60 carbs, drank most of em! Great night but now back to it!

Gee whiz @Jacqueline_Porter, you’re an artist!

Every picture of every cake and doughnuts and everything else I would eat in a heartbeat.

I miss eating what I want and working it off at the gym.

Took me by surprise - our homeowners association newlsletter today:


How have I not seen this thread before?!

And why do I stumble upon it while fasting???

After the second pic I had to skip to the end to save my sanity!

Ok, my paltry contribution… I used to always get an orange soda from the drink machine when I go to the laundromat. I eyed it last night on my way out the door but kept on walking. There was no way I was gonna blow my fast on some stupid sugar water!
