Happy Chinese New Year!
With a Nom and a nom nomnom!
I love ethnic food, and I love Chinese food in particular. I’m continuing to work to get some new, fun recipes for you to try all of the time. Thanks so much for your suggestions! I love you guys as much as is socially acceptable.
Back in the Saddle
I am back on Atkins after taking a few months to re-evaluate things (in other words, I ate off plan-burp). If you noticed, I haven’t posted any weight loss for some time. *whistling*
That’s because there haven’t been any losses to report!
Bom chicka bow bow!
ZOMG I = a bum!
I am pleased to report I didn’t regain it all, and I am totally not waiting to gain it all back prior to beginning again–which is new to me!
But let’s just say I restarted Atkins after some heavy contemplation and soul searching. I finally got it through my thick head that:
a. It’s not about screaming fast weight loss; and
b. I refuse go on vacation until I hit goal and sew my lips together and have my own kitchen while away from home.
OK, so it sounds a little crazy to say I’m not going on vacation but ZOMG PEOPLE! I went on vacation in July and NEVER fully recovered from it. I stress seriously when I’m traveling because there are a lot of things out of my control. When I’m not in my element, neither is the eating. and there you have it. On again, off again, on again off again, so the story goes…
So, if there are any conspiracy theories out there as to why I haven’t posted my weight loss in awhile, here are the facts of the case:
YES, I am back on plan.
YES there are a lot of great recipes coming this year.
NO I’m not perfect.
NO, my recipes and low-carb didn’t cause my downfall.
YES I stand by low-carb and the low-carb community despite pressure to change what I’m doing.
I will begin updating the stats again, beginning Monday with different numbers. My goal for this year? I could tell you, but then I’d have to eat you on a cauliflower crust. Stay tuned, and let’s share this journey together!
One thing I will say: I still fit into the pants I bought to celebrate my 86 pound loss!
I haven’t visited TOPS since I began working, which I think has hurt me. Once I get back down in weight I’ll start going again. They make you pay money when you gain weight, and if I put that many nickels in my pockets, I’d create a disturbance in the Force.
More Giveaways Coming!
On the up side, there are giveaways coming soon! I have some books to send to you guys! I need to get these suckers reviewed, but be on the look out for books from Taubes, Hahn, and Vonda Wright in the next few weeks!
I am blessed by readers and the support we have as a community. I am really enthusiastic about this year, its promises, its blessings and our friendship as we all become lesser people with greater potential!
