Enhanced Malabsorbtion and No Carbs

Winter here is pretty much over. 72 and sunny today. Worked out in the yard for a few hours and I realized I have been slacking off on the physical activity. I need to get more active again. Low carb is going well. Tonight's dinner is meatloaf, sauteed mushrooms, and watercress salad. Found the watercress at the dollar store of all places... And it's hydroponic and clean. Nothing like that dirty stuff that grows in ditches.

Watercress. Makes me feel vaguely British!

I've never tried watercress, what does it taste like?
Our weather is very unsettled but lots of signs of spring and warm enough so the giant ice piles we had all month are almost gone, thank goodness.
72° sounds like heaven!

Sort of like peppery spinach.

One thing diets taught me well was that I would always fail. I have to say that lately I have been hating dieting even more than usual. Looking for excuses and opportunities to eat something 'good'. I do have some cheat days coming up. 4/11 is because we are going to a baseball game and I refused to go if I couldn't eat! And then there is Overeast(Passover/Easter).

Today I motivated myself with even intending to. I was switching out my closet for summer and OMG... I am down to my fighting weight or damn close to it. I can now wear all the clothes I wore at my thinnest. And I am also back in my stilettos. I can wear and walk in them again. It all started when I put on some shorts and a tshirt. And the shorts fell off. That got me started trying on other stuff. And if I had to try on dresses, I had to try on the heels. And one thing led to another. Of course, nothing looks good because of the hernia. But the clothes fit! I am going to force myself onto the scale some day soon. I am back in jeans with teeny tiny zippers even.

Sizes still suck. I fit in some 6/8 and yet...I still have a pair of size 12 Lauren cords in my closet the won't go past my fat ass. But we all know life isn't fair.

So...new goal. 130something before the hernia surgery. Now I am going to celebrate by buying 5lbs of SF gummy bears. 130 would be a new forever low for me and my BMI would be...magic...normal...19.8. Do I dare dream?

Wow! I can’t wait to see you in July! (Did I mention we’re swinging through LB for a few days in July on our way home from 2+ months in CA this summer?)

I wore silver jeans last night. Silver! Probably too young for me. Not really shiny, just a little. They sort of look like a sparkly grey. With matching shoes. They came from the thrift store but they were new with the tags still on. When I tried them on the first time I had to lay down on the bed to do the button and zipper. This time there was no laydown necessary. I kept having to pull them up all night and when I came home, I took them off without undoing the button and the zipper. They are now too big.

Jeff brought up the idea of a belt. I have never owned one. In my life!

I wish that worked for me! I got 2lbs of gummy bears and it had the opposite effect on me... :confused:
You are different. Those SF gummy bears are touted as being the best colon cleanse ever. You should read the reviews on Amazon. And don't be drinking anything while you are reading. They are hilarious!
