  1. Round 3 DONE!

    So I guess this will be my first and only blog from round 3.

    My first two rounds were long ones and I've decided that 6 weeks is about two weeks too long for me. I end up getting weak and obsessed and UNHAPPY by the end.

    Turns out, I end up getting weak and obsessed & unhappy on a 4 week round as well.

    The fact that it is officially summer did not help.

    Last night, I had a willful and deliberate cheat related to the fact that I ...

  3. Interesting Day w/ no food.

    Today I finally went to the Dr. to see what might be wrong with me, turns out I do in fact have a stomach virus. The Dr. assigned me to a liquid/bland diet for at least a . This is clear broths and soups, saltine crackers, that stuff...I couldnt have the crackers so I started off eating chicken broth. Luckily I had about 3.5 ounces of flounder before leaving for the Dr. (it was pre-packaged that weight, I'm not on p2) and my sister reminded me that sugar free jello was probably something light that ...

  5. Oranges keep messing me up!

    So every time my blood sugar starts to drop (every few days), I grab an orange. I usually skip my other fruit on that day - so I haven't been thinking much of it. HOWEVER - I had no idea that an orange has 100 calories and a whopping 32-ish carbs???! Not to mention the sugar intake of an orange!? Sooooo, even though I only ate 352 calories today, my carb count was about 60 (I also had a glass of skim milk instead of my usual chicken for dinner). That, combined with a rogue move (broccoli) will ...

  10. Debating if it was worth it

    So I went to visit some friends i have not seen in a few years..People i used to have an extremely strong bond with. I went out to lunch with one of them at an Indian restaurant. There is an amazing one in Estes Park..the owners, and cooks are from some place up by the Andes, and everything is authentic..They had a bufett, and since that is what the 3 people with me were having I decided to just eat it. I would guess the sauces have some kind of thickener that made me gain. Plus I also ate 2 bites ...
