I'm tired of fooling around with my weight, seeing it bounce up, but not wanting to come down again.
So, I am starting from scratch, pretending this is my first round with low carb, and doing Induction. So far so good, too. I started yesterday, the first day of March. Let's see what happens now. I plan to stick with it for the entire month.
I'm also making an effort to drink adequate water. I've always had my coffee first, and probably will continue that, but now I'm going
A week of really horrendous eating!
We had to go to Dallas Monday to be with dd1 & her dh and our dgs, who was going in the hospital for a video EEG to see if any of his seizure activity is localized or if they are all generalized. Sadly, no focal points, so surgery is probably not an option.
We ate out, and ate some really, really high carb stuff. I never ordered dessert, but ate the bread with the meal, had sandwiches, Chinese food with all the sweet sauce, noodles

So, I've had 2 out of town events that caused me to go way, way off my plan. Funny thing, though. I gained maybe 3 lbs. That's all. I can easily gain 3 lbs even staying on plan, so this is really weird for me.
We had our annual Texas Housing meeting this past week. We stayed at the Hilton. Boy, it was not cheap! I never can figure out why the expensive hotels charge for everything (internet access would have been $10.95 a day; we stay at a cheap little motel and get free access, paying
How many times have we fallen off the low carb wagon, made unwise food choices, lost our focus, and our excuse is that "life just got in the way"?
I'm guilty. I've said that very thing. But it's just a flimsy excuse, isn't it?
Our angst and trials and tribulations in our daily lives really shouldn't affect our food choices, should they? Just because we've had a particularly lousy day doesn't mean we should go ahead and have that doughnut sitting on the counter
