I haven’t decided. Just like I haven’t decided if I am going to give up my high fat Greek yogurt or not.
My daughter and I have a competition to each lose 10 lbs. before Dec. 16. She would then be at her goal weight and I would be, let’s just say, closer to mine. I bought the book, “The Thyroid Diet” as I do have an issue but not enough to get medication (damn) so this diet says to eat only 1-2 carbs a day and I might die. What’s a girl to eat for lunch if she can’t have a sandwich? And sorry, but the low fat Greek yogurt just isn’t the same.
My son finally called and talked to me for quite a while from college. While I was banned from visiting him this week as I would crimp his style for Halloween, I am happy that he is adjusting. It’s strange. My girls were very homesick and whiny and this kid loves school and has friends, activities and more going on. What did I do wrong with that one?
Went out to dinner last night with friends, which makes the status of my $100 a bit precarious. I will be using my extensive library of diet books that I have accumulated over the past 20 years (this was the same time period that I have coincidentally accumulated 20 lbs.) to come up with some meal ideas that don’t involve a phone, delivery service and extra cheese.
I had for a time, considering that I lost 5 lbs. from the flu, thought about hanging out with my friend’s little children or volunteering at day care but I read that now I would now be immune to it so that’s out. I did order some brown seaweed supplement that’s supposed to boost your metabolism and if I remember to take it I will let you know how or if it works.
In the meantime, me and my thyroid will be trying to work hard so that my daughter doesn’t end up with my $100.
