Low Carb Life…

My weight-loss journey has certainly been a LONG journey, started well over 2 years ago.  I started on my own with just exercise and watching what I ate, I lost about 25 pounds on my own.  Last summer, running regularly and eating the good parts of the food pyramid, I started gaining weight and was confused, flustered, angry and depressed.  Instead of giving up, I talked with my family doctor who advised me to speak with some kind of specialist who lives a live style that is low in carbs.  What did I have to loose?  So, I went to see Dr. Leah, and she set me up on living Low Carb and it’s hard, every day is HARD, but it has been the most rewarding and educational journey I’ve ever been on!  She has taught me some amazing LIFE LONG skills that can keep this going for me forever!  What I enjoy most is I get to eat regular people food every single day.  I don’t have any special foods I have to buy from some specialized location, it’s normal grocery store food.  It doesn’t cost me any more than it did before, because frankly, I’m a teacher, I don’t have a whole lot extra to fork over.





What a busy weekend!!  My folks came up on Wednesday night, spent the entire day at the demolition derby in Sanborn on the 4th followed up with some awesome fireworks, hosted a family bbq at my place on Friday, said “Adios” to the family on Saturday morning and made strawberry jam on Sunday.  Whew!!  Just thinking of all that work makes me exhausted, I need a vacation from my vacation.
