    I've been reading back through my journal trying to figure out what I was doing when I was loosing weight...

    There is a LOT of reading...

    Well then, dust yourself off and come up with a plan of attack.

    For me, it's all about the carbs - it is so easy for them to sneak up and become a major macro instead of a minor macro. And not enough high quality protein. (Says the woman who just ate two slices of tapioca bread!)

    You're not starting ALL the way over, though. And you have so much experience under your belt now. And the great resource of your journal. You know what you need to do for YOU to release weight.

    You'll be happy dancing again in no time.

    Until then, perhaps a slow, graceful, mourning dance? Very evocative. And can be done holding a glass of wine in one hand.

    Resolve came up with a great plan today while I was supply teaching.
    My Dragon didn't agree with it when she swooped in at 3.
    Remorse is showing no sympathy right now

    Thanks, Yeah, the carbs didn't so much sneak up today as "explode" out of a bag of Avocado oil fried potato chips...

    Copied from Gay Panda's journal:

    Nov 2
    I need Resolve's help with sugar.
    My Dragon wants/needs sugar.
    She thinks about it all the time
    But she REALLY NEEDS it between 4 and 7pm.

    Today the Dragon was satisfied with 2 glasses of red wine (does that count as sugar?) and a drizzle of pure maple syrup with the baked apple and Mascarpone cheese.

    I said NO to the chocolate and the Real Fruit Gummies, even when my back was hurting.
    And I have left the large bowl of Halloween treats alone!

    and today
    Resolve is very strong in the morning, full of ideas, lists and plans, but vanishes around 3pm when my personal DEBAUCHERY (a little purple Dragon) swoops in and stays till about 7pm. Remorse arrives in time to pick up the pieces and survey the damage.

    Wednesday

    I got a 6:15 call this morning for a supply job. I took it.
    I had a Chai with whipping cream and I grabbed a small chunk of Brie and 3 Brazil nuts on my way out the door.
    I "saved" them for my 10:30 "lunch".
    Resolve was with me and we created an awesome list of all the things we were going to do. Foods we were going to avoid. etc.
    I was done at 2:30. I stopped at a bulk food store to buy some arrowroot flour. I walked up a different isle, saw the Avocado oil chips and that's when my Dragon swooped in!
    I ate the whole bag

    Supper was ground turkey burgers (raised by our friends) with cheddar cheese and a dill pickle. Dessert was 1/2 a mango.

    I made a crustless quiche while I was making supper: eggs, cream, spinach, bacon, onions, red pepper (possibly the last one from our garden) and cheddar grated on top.

    After supper I went to my Home Instruction Student's house (7-9pm)

    I supply teach AGAIN tomorrow! That's the 4th day in a row!
    I'll have to catch up on journals tomorrow. Hopefully.
    G'nite

    Hey! I have all those ingredients in my fridge. I think a quiche is just what I need for snacking. I could even make the top all fancy with the red pepper slices, the way Roger Moore did in 'View to a Kill'. It's a plan!

    Love quiche.

    Well, at least chips are not as bad as candy.

    What you need is some kind of good snack on hand to fill you up and leave you less vulnerable. Have you tried Judg Fudg yet? I find getting enough fat very helpful as a pre-emptive strike.

    Ooh, nice idea. Mine wasn't fancy, but it still tasted great

    That's what I kept telling myself

    I can't remember how you make it. If it's coconut oil, chocolate, coconut flakes, etc. I've made several versions (including my coconut hearts) in the past. Not lately...
