Brrrrrrrr - Winter, your mommy is calling you home!

I woke up this morning to a freezing house. Our furnace went out sometime yesterday. It wasn't very hard to get on the treadmill this morning. I had to in order to warm up!! Things are still going very well on the lowcarb front. The almond crusted cheesecake I made yesterday turned out wonderful. Almonds on the bottom, almonds on the top. Yummm! And almonds are good for lowering cholesterol.

I am so pumped. I know I'm going to get there this time! The shift from vanity to health has made all the difference for me. I may be able to lie to myself about how I look, but when I go for my labwork, the numbers don't lie. My plan is to totally blow away the CNP the next time I go in - which will be in May.

  4. That's a great weight loss. I love doing the low carb diet. It's the only way I can lose weight and keep it off. My weight loss has slowed down, but am still losing.
    You can do this!
