Down to 148.5 lbs .5 lb to get back to lowest low!

Saturday, December 01, 2007

I am so happy that I am still losing. My dilemma is this: my friend brought me over huge bags of oranges, lemons and tangerines. I want to eat them but the carbs are too high. The lemons I will use for my daily lemon water but the tangerines and oranges are too many carbs. Thought for today, do an all fruit day with nothing but fruit? I bet I'd gain for sure. Do a week of fruit only? What to do, what to do.. I miss the fruit with the low carb but maybe as I reach goal I can add one a day back in...I am only 3.5 lbs from goal, of course there's always the thought of going lower than goal. I am short, 5'2" but very big boned (wear size 8" bracelet) so 145 is at the top end of what I'm supposed to weigh. When I was 20, I weighed 99 lbs (lost forever) What a problem...If I ate one a day now it would take me forever and they'd all be rotten...

    BEAUTIFUL. Then and now.

    I have cut out all fruit but berries on my low-carb diet. If it were me -- and I'm nowhere near my all-time low goal of 125 (I'm 149) -- I would give the fruit away and feel good twice. First for not spoiling my diet and second for making someone else happy. That said, you are so close to goal that you may choose to reward yourself. Tough decisions. Good think you haven't been given chocolate. LOL

    BEAUTIFUL PICTURE!!! Have you tried an all fruit day before? I was wondering if you had, & you did gain? I don't think it could hurt to see what a day would do? Fresh fruit sure sounds good to me too!

    Surely, you could have an orange or tangerine each day...I'd cut something else out before I'd let them to go waste...they are so good and good for you.

    That is a beautiful picture of you and you look soooo happy! You don't think you can eat oranges and tangerines? I guess that is due to the JUDD diet? I don't have a problem eating them at all as long as I count the calories in my daily allotment. You are doing a great job of losing. Maybe you can share them with someone else? Rosy
