BYOC Friday-I am sorry I didn't finish it is!

Well, here we go... BYOC Friday. 1)Because Draz is trying to lose her last 15 pounds before she goes on vacation, She's Curious...What's the oddest diet you've ever tried? Or which ones have you tried and were any successful? I wanted to try about a million more diets but I see the future frustration like I'm a psychic and refuse to put myself thru it again... I did a diet years ago that was similar to Atkins except that you could eat normally during the 60 minutes allowed to you per day(usually dinnertime)... I lost 70 pounds in 3 months and was thrilled but I got into a bad bout of depression and lost my mojo and ended up gaining all the weight back and then some. It was a great diet. I can always lose weight If I cut the carbs, Keeping if off has always been my problem...Other than that the most successful diet I was ever on was the Optifast 800 liquid diet for the 12 days before surgery, I lost 15 pounds in 12 days. I will probably go back to that diet once in a while to jumpstart my weight loss when it stalls. Optifast also has a higher protein drink as well... That i may try. 2) Do you prefer baths or showers? Definitely Baths... It's like you are pampering yourself clean. I think part of the thrill of baths for me is that I can't really take them again yet... since I am unble to get up from that position without killing myself but I will bathe again soon(Sounds like I am a flithy dirty person, right?) I'm not, I take showers with a shower chair and a long shower head... that sometimes gets fresh with me. I said too much again! 3)What is your favorite breakfast food? This one is easy... Chocolate Chip pancakes... Yum! It is the kid in me, I guess but I love making a meal into a dessert... Do you get why I'm fat, yet? I don't eat them anymore and I don't really miss them, but they were good while they lasted. 4)What's your least favorite word? I think "Indifference" would be my least favorite word. I can take hate and cruelty but the indifference that allows them to go on... Unacceptable! 5)Repeat question...make someone a superstar for a day! Whose blog or comment spoke to you or stuck with you the most this week and why? I was most moved by Stephanie's blog about her brother/mother... Knowing her struggles and how she is still succeeding to change her life and be healthy and Live in the moment instead of dwelling in the past.


  1. Peas can be your best friend! You can cook them, or have them frozennnn ohhh peas are great.... you can chuck them in nearly everything.... well cept icecream ahahah.

  2. I haven't read the Geneen books for quite some time now. Maybe I ought to dig them back out. As I recall, they were really significant to my development at the time. I remember her saying "You can't get enough of what you didn't want in the first place" when talking about one of the reasons some of us overeat. That really struck me. If I'm not really wanting food, then food won't fill me up. Amazing insight!

    Hope you get as much out of her books as I did.
