I learned I'm not good at drawing Sheep.

Howdy amigos!

FIRST OFF...I simply must say thanks. Haha, when I posted about that message board being unaccepting of my way kewl blog, I surely wasn't expecting you guys to turn into a bunch of protective Mama Bears...BUT...it was very awesome. Each comment brought giant smiles and giggles and even some blushing! I never think of this ratty ol' blog as meaning anything to anyone, so it was definitely flattering, guys. So...thanks!

Here's a dark weird cell phone pic to show my gratitude:

In other news, I am still low-carbing it and it's going pretty okay. I wouldn't necessarily say that I'm all IN LOVE with it yet, but...it's going okay. In theory, it seems good. Someone's like "yo, you can have a pork chop for breakfast, dawg!" And you're all "Hellz yeah, sign me up!" Then one day you have a pork chop for breakfast and you're like "shit, i see why the rest of the world has deemed this a bad idea!" Like, ouch, heartburn. So I tried eggs. Still heartburn!

I can't really do breakfast. All my life, I've been anti-breakfast! I know that's prolly (part of) the reason why I got so fat to begin with, but the heart wants what it wants! And my heart doesn't like being clogged so early in the morning. Come back at noonish. Pork chop be gone, son.

However, and I know people say this all the time, and I never believe them either: BUT...I'm really not that hungry anymore. Well, I mean, I was never hungry. I don't even know what that word really means. If I may steal a theory from the always-great YumYucky, I am mostly just GREEDY. Cravings gimme gimme gimme! But I don't really have that anymore. Well, not right now.

According to the evil message board, I'll get those feelings back after I get through this whole "Induction" thingamajig. No rush! It's nice not to be sitting at my desk trying to come up with a mathematical formula to figure out exactly how much I can eat without going over my stupid points. I just don't think about food. It's there, and I know I'm gonna eat it when it's time to eat, but otherwise, I'm not having to create equations for snacks, and that's pretty rockin'. I pretty much DON'T snack, which is also rockin' and kinda makes me hate myself. WHO ARE YOU?

Oh well, it's only day 5 and I'm usually real big on congratulating myself too quick then masterfully fucking up, so I'm just gonna say...For now, I'm doing this shit. And it's goin' alright.

In yet even more awesome news, my heart rate, it's dropping. Beginning to resemble that of a real human, even!

That's it for now. Keep on doin' what ya do.

Shall I swear some more?

Love the blog!

I was greatly relieved to see that low-carbing it didn't suppress the profanity. I was worried you were going to morph into "them."

Very interesting observation about hunger and greed. We are all hungry on a semi-regular basis. It's our reaction (or over-reaction) to hunger that nails us. You make a good point!

That's one thing my hubs says when he does low carb - he's just not that hungry so he doesn't each much - some days I don't think he reached 1000 calories, so be careful!

Have a great weekend!

I like your blog! Fuck them! You know, one resource that has helped me tremendously is the Beck Diet Book. It really helps me deal with cravings and urges to binge. Check it out and keep blogging!!!

Eye heart u 2....and I love the OMRON picture. I gotta get one. :)

You're doing so great! Isn't there a lot of research lately that says low fat doesn't work for everyone? And low carb may be the way to go. I know it's worked for me from time to time. My biggest issue with it is breakfast..which really ends up meaning I eat eggs every day. If you find a magic breakfast, please share.

And I checked out that low carb group..they could have used a dose of your sassy-ness!

I am in love with being on low carb, generally. Induction is the hardest, no doubt. eating eggs for breakfast, while i love my sausage egg pepperjack mushroom omelets, does feel so heavy somedays. but its only a few weeks. Then you can get special k's protien plus cereal (like 9carbs) and calorie countdown milk (like 3 carbs) and make that breakfast. or have almonds and fresh berries. those were my go-to breakfasts that i could get at any market.

they have low carb mixes for breads and pancakes and stuff online... but that's not me :) i don't cook things with more than 3 steps :) But good job sticking with it. it does get more lenient with time!

But, for me at least, the affect on my appetite is profound. I think about food -all day long- normally and barely think about it on low carb. The idea of missing a meal was horrific before and barely phases me now. I still have cravings, but it's less compulsory.

Thanks for the Yumyucky link. I must have been stuck in some weird yumyuckyless vortex.
