I put back on a chunk of weight and well, here I sit.. I guess it is true the older you get the harder it is to get the weight off.
History- long, long line of big girls.. my mom had the gastric surgery 2 months ago and im not totally sure she isnt regretting it =/
She wasnt huge, huge but was about 285. Shes lost 30 lbs and literally can not eat much of anything. Sure takes the fun out. We all love food, right?!
My dad.. he had atheriosclerosis and died a horrible and preventable death =(
He was 50, and had had more strokes than we could count and died in a nursing home. Terrible fate for him but I know he could have changed things. So those two- not on my list of "I wanna be like them!"....
I know the basics from doing Atkins but love the primal twist. Some of the LC dishes on the recipe site look like road kill *yuck*... and I have just been burned out and turned off.
I picked up the PB book from Barnes and Nobles last Friday and am about 1/4 through it...
I am big on cooking and feeding the clan and boy do we have some changes to make!
So, here I am! Id like to jot down some of the interesting stuff im forcing on my husband and kids =)
Tonight- shrimp stir fry.. shrimp, bean sprouts, brocolli, low sodium soy, mushrooms, green beans, carrots.. and whatever else I can find to chunk in that will gross out my kids. Kidding, they are really onboard with this.. at least, its growing on them.
Lunch was a can of tuna, little mayo, over raw spinich, touch of ranch,string mozzerella and a few plum tomatoes.
B- homemade egg/ spinich/ sausage/ cheese quiche bites.
Dinner last night was walnut crusted, pan baked chicken breast.... cauliflower (steamed, and blended with heavy cream and bacon bits).. steamed canned carrots with a little butter...
I walked 3 miles yesterday and today, I did the gym thing.. stair climber and then some weights..
I am also 57 days sober today.. i'd picked up a nasty dependence on alcohol that HAD to end. I picked up a self help book and well, that addiction is history as of 08/28/11! Id hoped to drop HUGE weight after quitting the sauce but NOPE =/
I think the husband, kids and me will take a bike ride before we do dinner.
So glad to be here with the rest of you.. looking forward to dropping some weight the primal way.
