Still trying the Atkins Way

by | Aug 27, 2003 | diet & lifestyle | 0 comments

OK – I’m not really evangelizing about Atkins, but, so far I’ve dropped about 25 lbs…. I’m down to the smallest clothes in the closet. Granted, I used to have smaller ones before the house burned and I got to start all over on my wardrobe.

There have been a few hitches – times when I just had to have a few tortilla chips to use as spoons for salsa, sour cream and guacamole dip…. or just one cornbread muffin. Despite these few craving attacks, overall I am perfectly content to avoid sugar and starch and real beer and at the same time to have more energy and find myself evaporating at about 1 lb/week. There are times when I’m just not interested in food – not what I can eat, not even what I have on my “off-limits list.” The best part seems to be that JP is doing it as well – and that means that I no longer get the snarls about “you are the one with the crazy diet restrictions.”

Carry on….

  • Bread of Life (part 2)
    Yesterday I found myself reflecting on making sourdough bread in this time of isolation and uncertainty. Looking at the mechanics of the process and the experience leads to a different way of reflecting on life. Making bread, especially the long slow process of sourdough, is a journey. I daresay a spiritual journey if you will […]
  • Bread of Life – Sourdough
    I have taken this time of isolation as a chance to revive an old practice: breadmaking. My oldest child (who is an impossible 41 years old) was in kindergarten before he knew that bread could come from the grocery store. Back then my best friend (also next door neighbor) and I had a system whereby […]
