Lent and dieting

I think we tend to think of dieting the way we think of Lent. When it's over, we go back to normal. Hmmmmm. I don't think either one is meant to be that way. It's all about conversion. That's why I don't really like the to use the word diet as a verb. A diet is a way of eating. Lent is meant to change us. So is "dieting." But there really is no end. It's an ongoing process. The change is meant to be permanent. Anyway, things have been going well. Not sure when I'll get a workout in today, but I am planning to get one in. We will see.

Wii Tillie said that I am 33 today and I acheived my goal early and she's worried about me. Awwwww!!! I am in ketosis which makes everything much easier. I am trying to stick to whole foods as much as possible and that keeps cravings down. I have several quilt projects lined up and some candles to make to fill an order, and a baby shower to get ready for (not to mention the new baby), and an afghan I'm working on. So there is plenty to keep me busy.

April 1 is coming up soon. I really really want to meet my mini goal. My reward is going to be a candle that I am going to make as a reminder of my commitment to myself.


  1. That is so true. That is why, when I first started my weightloss journey, I banned the word 'diet' from my vocabulary. It has a negative connotation. Big hugs and blessings.

  2. I love your candle reward idea.
    now lets get you to that reward!!
