taking their place was a long list of Spring Cleaning chores.
I am taking a well deserved tea break.
Baking soda really cleans and is very gentle.
Plus it's a green clean.
Paris tea arrived from Peg in Comox.
She has been supplying me with this delicious tea for a few months now.
Thank you Peg!
She will be down here in our fair city soon.
She will be having some medical treatments and I hope that we can link up for tea and a walk.
The Verbena candle has been lit for a few hours and the kitchen
My low cal lunch.
Free range eggs poached and them popped on top of salad.
Rebar basil vinaigrette
just enough to add some extra zing.
I can't wait to lose weight...
that's what seems to sabotage all my efforts at dieting.
I start off strong and when the scale doesn't shift I give up.
Thinking that I need to reframe my thoughts and reset some goals.
I was perusing a Weight Watchers magazine last night and the women who were the "success stories"
didn't really look much different than me.
Some had way more weight to shed...
there must be something that I am missing,
something that I can't quite put my finger on.
I don't want to buy another diet book
I have half a dozen and I have read them several times
and they no longer motivate me.
I am feeling frustrated and positively cranky!
I worked with a woman who went to a clinic
where they gave her daily shots of Vitamins
and weighed her...
she was allowed 800 calories a day
she did lose weight
something about burning up brown fat?
It does not sound safe to me to be under 1,000 calories a day.
Another co-worker went to a different clinic where they test your blood and design the diet to suit your blood type and it boosts your metabolism.
It sounds like a lot of smoke and mirrors to me
but I am no scientist!
Calories in vs. calories expended
isn't that how one sheds weight?
So I am thinking
Weight Watchers seems to be the most sensible approach.
My question is who has been to WW?
Was it easy and did you lose weight?
Online or meetings?
Looking forward to your thoughts and comments.
I am putting on my shoes and I am off for a long walk...
looking for something beautiful to inspire me to take on the challenge
that I have been avoiding for far too long.
