Obviously I was up to no good this weekend. The overwhelmness of the season has hit full force.

Cindy, prayers going up. My husband has family in Santa Barbara and has been worried about them as well.

Gonna try for the fast today. Let's see!

Happy Monday!

I'm in a funk.

I KNOW HOW to shed fat. That is not the same thing as knowing how to EAT.

I don't even want to know what the scale says today, so I'm not weighing. I'll fast today and tomorrow and get things back into some semblance of control, no problem. I can do that.

But I've gotta figure this out. I went for weeks and weeks a while back, with my WOE under near-perfect control. Then this week, I'm remembering just how I got to be be 140 pounds overweight in the first place!!!

This Feasting/Fasting Cycle blows, big time. It's okay for Holidays, Celebrations, you know....planned events.....NOT for everyday life.

But I'm on it. I'll keep my friends here in the loop, good, bad, or ugly.



Has anybody heard from Cindy? Did she lose her home? (Wow. Those are HARD words to even type.)

Michael is traveling in Alabama (without his scale) and returns to Wichita later this week. But that guy is doing so GREAT! He's in his hotel room, watching motivational videos on KETO, Fasting, etc. He texted me how roomy the airline seats were! (Wink, Wink.) I had a similar experience over the weekend at Stillwater at the Shockers/Cowboys Game at Gallagher-Iba Arena. I used to LOATH the tiny seats they put in Stadiums and Arenas. Now..... not so much.

I ran into a friend at the last Shocker's Home Game at Wichita State who sat in the (borrowed) seat next to me. He's 332 pounds and MUCH shorter than my 6'3" wrinkled frame.

He. Was. Miserable.

The whole game, we talked about his knees, the tiny seats...and how he's "just GOTTA get some of that extra fat off" and ,"so tell me HOW you lost all that weight" by eating more fat!?!?!?! REeEeEally?!?!?!??!

So.

I suppose I feel a little like the proverbial dog that FINALLY catches the proverbial car he's been chasing, Half A**ed pretending to chase.... for his entire life, secretly realizing he can't catch it, ever. But now I actually have!!!!! So now what?

I was right to be Scared Sh**less of maintenance. Butt here I is, posting everyday. And I've got no shot at success without YOU people and this place. I can see that now. So I reckon you're stuck with me.

Terri, you must be the long lost half sister I never had. My journey parallels yours in many ways. Let's us get after it.

OKAY??

Onward peeps.

Stan, you can do this. Maintains just needs to become a habit for you. I wish my newfound (re-found?) faith in low carb would rub off on some people.

I might have mentioned this before, but I have a diabetic co-worker who is really struggling with their sugars. I casually asked about whether they had ever considered low carb and they said "I am low carb", and went on to explain that their doctor said no more than 60-100 g of carbs. Per meal. With a minimum of 4 pieces of fruit a day for snacks ( on top of the other carbs I think). When I said I was 20 net carbs per day her eyes almost fell out and she started regurgitating the no fat, whole grain, lean meats, fruit dogma that got me to 268lbs in the first place. I feel terrible for her, but I've done what I can do.

Laura, I believe in the mantra completely. I do believe that we are in the minority population though. So many have been permanently brain washed on the low calorie/low fat mantra.

Instead of Stan's FUNK, I'm just calling myself a weak-stick. Because that's what I've been. Not gonna beat myself up though. I know this too, shall pass!

we got this!

So let me explain what happened. The street I live on is the border line between Ventura and Santa Barbara county. Ventura gave us a mandatory evacuate notice on Wednesday night. Santa Barbara gave us a mandatory evacuate notice e Friday. Since I'm a big chicken I carefully packed up my car, including 4 out of 5 cats, I just couldn't catch number 5, and evacuated. Spent three nights in a hotel and Saturday morning they let us go back home! Yay! I let the cats out and unpacked half the car. 2am the sheriff's were banging on the door saying GET OUT NOW. I said five minutes and they said NO IT'S RIGHT THERE GET OUT! The roar of an out of control fire is an awful sound. I barely got my pants on much less rounding up my cats. Got out with my dog, a few clothes, and the only things I didn't unpack, my computer, a couple photo albums, and birth certs and such. I was so much better prepared the first time around.

My poor babies

Hello all!
Just checking in on all of you!
I have been so busy but I am thinking of you all. Cindy, I am glad you are okay. I am sorry about everything else. Praying for you still!

My life is hectic right now but I will catch you all up soon. All is well! I got back in the swing of things today. Back on plan!

I have 6 months until my son gets married. He shortened my one year plan to six months! I have some serious work to do! While is wish I had more time, I don’t! And, I can wait to see him get married! I am so glad I have already lost 21 pounds!

Good night friends! Remember, we can all do this!

Nope, sorry that wasn't clear. It's a smoking ruin, nothing left. Everything's gone
