Teppy on the beach!

The SOUTH Beach that is. Tired of being fat, and with me trying hard to shed the pounds I gained in July and August, Steve and I decided to go low-carb again since it's worked like a charm the other two times we've done it.

It's working already; yesterday I was craving a bland sugar cookie made with white flour.

I'd forgotten how easy this way of eating is. Scrambled eggs get boring for breakfast, but we don't get all that hungry later. I love salads, although it's a challenge to get one that fills Steve up. However, serving chili with the toppings on salad greens works pretty well. Last night we went to Outback with Todd and Lourdes and Steve and I had grilled ahi as our appetizer and veggies as our side dishes.

There's grilled chicken for snacks in the fridge and dinner will be frikadiller with steamed veggies, with grated Parmesan substituting for the bread crumbs. Finally a use for that horrible shake cheese!

I also read that the reason I am retaining water might be because I'm not drinking enough, so I'm planning to down absolutely stupid amounts of water. When I lost weight in Afghanistan (and this was in the winter) I was drinking gallons every day.

Off to the commissary before all the Marines wake up.

I cannot praise the LC diet(s) highly enough. I've dropped over 60 pounds off my peak weight (it was 65 but I fell of the horse this week while discovering flax meal & I don't get along) by sticking to a low-carb regime, and have been able to dial back my diabetes meds, get off insulin completely...it's done me no end of good. I hope it does all these good things for you and Steve as well!

This is our third time on a LC diet. We did Atkins in 2003 and South Beach in 2007. They really do work. I only need to lose about 10 lbs, then eat at home more often, which I want to do for budgetary reasons anyway.

It worked great for me when I was on it, but I need to get into it again

I literally decided Thursday at lunch to do it. I had scrambled eggs for breakfast the next day, had salad from Carl's Jr for lunch and the Outback dinner. Yesterday morning was grocery day anyway so I bought all the low carb essentials. Already two pounds down because it does indeed work that fast.
