Saturday night we were hosting our friend and his children for dinner. He’s following Paleo plan, and we were sharing woes of weight loss. It struck me then that this diet is going to be life changing – it can’t be temporary measures! I need to take things one day at a time. Continue reading Break the social eating habit
I checked in at the end of week 3, I lost 3 pounds and about 0.8 inches from my waist. I was feeling terrific, until Dr. Jain read my log. I thought I was on track with restricting my carbs and stayed away from sugar. Continue reading Just when I thought I was doing great….
My husband isn’t on the diet train. If I cook something he likes, he’ll eat it. I won’t make two meals, so sometimes the table will have my meal and then his meal. My son most times has a combo of mine and his. I can’t expect him to enjoy cauliflower, humus and lettuce for lunch vs an Italian hero.

I’m now 203 pounds, my wedding ring and my size 12 pants don’t fit me! This is technically considered OBESE – yikes! To make matters worse, I watched myself gain 10 pounds over a month when I had shingles last month. Yes, I had shingles at 41! This is not common and happened because of stress. Stress can do wonders to our bodies. When I’m nervously stressed, I can’t see food. Continue reading Start of a new day, again
