D-I-E-T not so much fun to spell...

In case you haven't noticed the first three letters in the word diet are d-i-e. Doesn't that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? There is no wonder why the mere prospect of a diet gives people the heebie-jeebies and cold sweats!

Which is why I've adopted the completely B.S. sounding theory of "lifestyle change." As bogus as it sounds... I keep thinking that if I just accept this as a life sentence instead of a death sentence it will make the whole weight-loss process easier.

In truth, I have noticed that the longer I do this whole low-carb thing, the less I crave the carbs and, really, they don't taste all that great when I do have them. The obvious exception being chocolate, cheesecake, and my new-found love pies. Although, truthfully, I don't feel so great after indulging. It usually makes me sick... except for the pies.

I did my usual tango with the grim reaper of dieting, also known as the bathroom scale, this morning with happy results, finally!

MR Hester Thanks for clearing that up. I had wondered until I visited your blog. I loved it! I was going to post a comment, but I'm not a member so I couldn't. Sorry!

muse Thank you! It has not been easy, and I have to think that I would be a lot further along if I didn't cheat every once in a while. ;o)

Amy - that is the one thing I don't like about Mindsay. You could sign up just to post a comment (it's free). We have quite the cozy community over there.

BTW - looking at your profile just wanted to let you know that I have a 20 & 15 yr old and a 14 month old and we are trying for #4 - lol. Seems we have some things in common.
