Last night I had Bible Study. I always go to my friend's house on the afternoon prior to the Study and I eat dinner with her and her family. I did not want to have to eat what she made yesterday as i knew it would not fit in with my diet. So ... Read more
Disgusting Dinner
Wednesday, May 08, 2013      5 comments

For the past some weeks I've been using recipes from Dr. Fuhrman's book and website. And so far everything had been delicious. Until last night that is. Last night I made Broccoli Rabe and Wild Rice. It sounded delicious. Well let me tell y... Read more

Yesterday I just reheated soup from another night and threw together two salads--for my DH an DD and I had a smoothie for dinner. I was too exhausted to chew. Ever have a day like that...when just EVERYTHING gets to you? Not too much is diffe... Read more

Once again I lost some weight very rapidly and then regained two pounds--for no explainable reason. I told myself "That's what you get for weighing yourself two days after you last weighed." and I refused to get upset about it. I know that if ... Read more

Now that the beautiful weather is here I want to be outside. And now that my daughter is staying with us I have a walking partner. I can only stand 15 minutes thus far but am following the "each day a little further" rule and so far have stuck... Read more

My One Remaining Struggle

I did not weigh myself today despite an incredible urge to do just that. I've decided that, since I began the ETL food plan on a Sunday, that Sunday will be my "weigh day." I am not anticipating much loss - if any - this week. I had some small ... Read more

Today I weighed 212 exactly. Yesterday I weighed 212 point something....but I don't remember what. If it was .9 then that is an acceptable weight loss for one day....but I really don't recall what the fraction was. I'm disgusted with myself b... Read more

For the past two nights I have been in severe pain from my neck (which is being attacked by Psoriatic Arthritis.) As a result of my poor sleep, I have been snacking at night. I've only eaten healthy foods however, as Dr Fuhrman explains in the... Read more

My weight loss is going full steam ahead. I've lost 7 pounds this week. Dr. Fuhrman said rapid weight loss is to be expected in the early days of his program and eventually it will slow to about ten pounds a month....so I'm not concerned that ... Read more
On Daily Weights
Saturday, April 20, 2013      5 comments

Recently I've drawn some criticism for weighing myself daily. I can understand when a person is "stuck"- and not really making headway in their eating plan - how weighing oneself daily is not a good idea. It will only lead to frustration and o... Read more

Today I weigh the same as I did yesterday. Now I know that is no reason to be upset. I mean I really CAN'T expect to continue to lose a pound a day every day. But somehow, yeah, I'm disappointed. I knew after I tracked yesterday that I was ki... Read more
