Your 1920's Name is:

Clarabelle Evangeline




Am doing a bit of winter cleaning. Sort of. :D Sam's down and we're having fun watching videos she brought. She made me a scarf too! :D

Am getting up the speed to go work out. I'm not seeing a lot of change so I'm changing the diet again. (diet as in what I eat, not diet as in...fad diet). I believe in lifestyle change meant to be a sustainable change. It's why I liked Weight Watchers. I always lost weight on that diet. And for the most part I still follow the point plan. I guess my hormonal fingerprint has changed and that's keeping weight on in different places. Due to Tim's dietary constraints we've already cut out: sugar (none in the cooking or baking or in the house), butter, animal fat, red meat, eggs...) I've decided to cut out some carbs, but please don't try to shove Atkins on me. I don't agree with the diet for my life; I like well-balanced meals. (Just a warning, because I always get it...and it'll be a waste of time for someone to tell me to do it...it's been investigated for personal use and vetoed.)

But work out does get me up early enough in the morning to see sunrises. :D

You know what's lovely? Seeing a sunrise through ice on the windshield. Now that's nice...fractured and prismed and very cool.

I think I'm going to make a new friend of the guy that runs the board game store. We're in there so much, I think we ought to invite him to family gatherings. :D

But overall, life is good. There's always something to smile over, to laugh about...(and when there isn't something overt, damn it, I'm going to make something to laugh over). I feel down too, sometimes, but that's to be expected. Life isn't even; it's more like an averaging. ;) And as long as my average comes out in the normal range, I'm grateful.

why the hell would anyone recommend atkins? It's only good for you if you're Genghis Khan. Humans are too sedentary now to need that sort of diet.

(and I like pasta faaaaaaaaar too much :D)

*shrugs*

It seems to work well for some people and they like to share a bit too much. I don't know. I've just had it recommended so much that I have to warn people these days not to do so.

I dunno...I tend to get very very leery when large groups of people recommend something to me. Especially if it's done fervently. Just raises my neckhairs like crazy.

Cult comes to mind. :D

But that's just human nature, innit? People find something they like (hey - this says I can eat bacon!) and that works for them (for a while anyway) and they want to share the discovery.

We've all done it in some form haven't we? As in "I've found this wonderful new (book, tv show, pairing) that you just have to try!" Only it doesn't work for everyone, as anyone who has ever tried to explain Doctor Who to a non-fan knows*.

Hmmm. Is dieting like fandom in some way? ***shudders***



*more painful than the Mind Probe, right?

LOL. Good analogy.

I really needed to read that just now, thank you so much for writing it!

Great 1920's name!

I went on Herbalife back in 2001 and went from a size 18 to an 8 in about 4 months. The best part, I've kept the weight off.

So when Atkins came along, my co-workers were all gungho about it. Nobody lost any weight.

I also like to point out that Atkins said the the only drawback of the diet would be a slight loss of balance. Which is what killed him. He lost his balance and struck his head on a sidewalk. Great selling point, Doc.

Atkins is nothing more than a pain in the a@@ that makes you buy their line of product for ease. Diet is just an equation -- good stuff in, then burn it off. Output more calories than you input. All I've had to do to lose weight after the baby is to start exercising. Curves and Jazzercise do wonders.
