When someone tells me a serving of pasta is ½ a cup I start to laugh hysterically. A serving of pasta for me is a Jethro size bowl filled to the top. Bad, I know. And who can have only one peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Not me.
I only need to lose about 15 pounds to be comfortable and to be able to fit into all my too tight clothing.
I have decided I am going to do Atkins for a few weeks. This is not a diet I can stick to in the long run, so why even do it you ask? It disciplines me from my excessive carb and sugar intake.
Basically what I eat is meat, vegetables, and the Atkins ever so popular food, eggs. No sugar, no carbs. For someone like me who needs to fast from these two “food groups” it works well.
My plan is to lose the excess weight, exercise, and then maintain a healthy weight on a normal balanced diet. It is all about discipline, something I need work on.
On to more important matters, my cousin’s three-year-old daughter is in Children’s Hospital today. The doctors will be removing what they think is a cyst on her ovary. Please pray for this little one and her family.
