Slowly Losing It

Yesterday I was getting dressed and had to change my outfit because finally at long last, I officially have a pair of slacks that are too big for me.

And there's that one sweater that's starting to hang unattractively. I keep telling myself that I'd better wear it a lot before it, too, is too big for me to get away with wearing.

So, I'm grateful to be on this journey in a way that I can do long term that involves nutritious food and not starving myself.


And no, I wont be blowing my progress on Christmas cookies. I have a long way to go yet.

Perhaps I'll keep those slacks as my "before" pants and take a picture of me standing there holding the waistband out someday.

....in a year or so.

Meanwhile, I offer you some links to a couple of awesome low carb recipe blogs I've found: Healthy Indulgences and Lighter Side. Enjoy!

Hi Alana!
Your sweater was beautiful!!

I remember my pants becoming ridiculously big and it was the BEST feeling to have to get rid of them - looking in amazement and wondering how I they could be so big and how I could have been so big to have filled them out! Congratulations - burn this memory into your head and when you get discouraged (as we all do) think back and recall the feeling! Best wishes to you!
