    I was trying on more clothes today to see if I could wear anything new and noticed that when I'm not tightening my abs (a habit I got into in high school out of vanity!), I look like I'm at least four months pregnant. And I have the pics to prove it:


    And the bloat's actually significantly down from yesterday! Crazy stuff...

    OTOH, at least the muscle that's been hiding under there all these years is beginning to peak out... a wee little bit:

    Well. Ahem. I just had a MAJOR carb crapola day. Don't need to do that again. I got that not-at-all-missed feeling of being short on breath and realized that it was because my gut swelled up so much it was preventing my lungs from fully expanding ... I really WAS having a hard time getting a full breath all those years! :banghead:

    Oh, well, won't do it again tomorrow. I'm accountable here.

    Food
    B - 3 eggs in CO (felt nauseated before eating from extremely low blood sugar)

    L - leftover hamburger soup
    S - yogurt w/ 1/2 banana
    D - steak & kidney stew (w heart, too) w/ veggies. Cheesecake (made by dd)

    Felt my stomach inflate like a balloon within five minutes of eating the cheesecake (which used honey instead of sugar, and half the amount called for)

    Avoid Poisons & Trauma
    yes

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    no

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain

    Here we go! New Year!

    154 - 33 pounds lighter than this day last year.

    The day I had the stollen binge, my belly literally looked 8 months pregnant. It's back to 4 months now, lol (and no, I'm not pregnant!). I think I'm sick and tired of it enough now. My sole thought for the last 12hrs has been "I am getting RID of this bloated belly!" So this week, it's zero carbs (other than non-sweet veggies). It's the dead of winter and I'm of Northern European stock; my body in no way needs fruit right now.

    Ready. Set. Deflate!!

    B - 3 eggs, 1T CO
    L - leftover steak & kidney stew, leftover taco & sour cream & bit o' cheese & salsa
    D - meatza w/ lots of veggies

    Uh oh. I felt my gut inflate after drinking my kefir. I just started making it two weeks ago, and really like it. I let it ferment for 24hrs, then strain and ferment 24 more hrs. Why, oh why?!
