Atkins Diet

Anybody ever try that?  I lost 60 pounds and ate myself silly, but I got really tired of constantly eating the same things. I'm trying to get back on it because i started gaining weight again and i can't afford to buy a new wardrobe.  i would kill for a blueberry muffin right now.  but as it is, my choices are a block of cheese, a beef stick or a cup and a half of mayonaise.  What does this have to do with homeschooling? i'm not sure, but if i think long enough i'm sure i can think of some sort of a tie-in.  I think I may just drop the atkins diet and follow coie's food pyramid instead:

    But that's okay. That's what fun about blogging. You can write about what interests you and right now that's a blueberry muffin. Sorry I shouldn't have reminded you. I think you look great by the way. (Or atleast the gal in the picture does.) But if you must go on Atkins, I'd go for the cheese…a cup of mayo is that really in the diet?

    Good point, Spunky

    Is that the real Jen in that picture? It *could* be, but then again, it might not be. Does *that* Jen use soap like I know the real Jen does? Does she sleep on red suitcases at 3:30 am in Orlando airports on the floor? Could be!

    I dunno, momsie. I think I'll just stick with my lipgloss diet. No fat, no carbs, no sugars, no………um…………cholesteral……………………no nutrition……

    Yup, I'm stickin' to my good ol' shiny lipgloss diet. I think it makes my hair shiny too.

    You ARE a Blueberry Muffin

    Here you are in this picture, taken TWO DAYS AGO in Florida, skinny as can be. And you are denying yourself a MUFFIN? *GOSH*

    Been reading your blog….

    Hey Jenjen, I have NOTHING to do (lying, lying…) and so here I am reading blogs. I can't believe you are on a diet and ALL you can think of are blueberry muffins. Chocolate is where it's at sister!

    Oh, and btw, I stole this quote off one of your posts:

    "the gospel is shallow enough for a child to splash in, and yet deep enough for the most intellectual theologin to drown in. did i spell theologin wrong?"

    Yes, I think you may have spelled theologian wrong –me too, me thinks, anyhow WHERE did you get that quote? I love it. Who said it? Can I keep it?

    Love, Nancy

    I just have to poke in here and mention that my dh has been low-carbing it. Again. He has started several times, but stresses at work and the lack of availability of the proper foods while there tend to cause him to crash. But this time he started while he had a week vacation and I'm proud to announce that he is in, I think, his 11th week of the diet. He's lost quite a bit of weight, like…digging out clothes from years ago so he has something to wear that fits weight.

    I would tell you the secret if I knew what it was. For the last 11 weeks we've been fixing 3 separate dinners most night. His, mine and the kids. He eats taco meat. Like…all the time. Practically every night. He says he's not tired of it. He speaks for himself. (Our house smells like Taco Bell most of the time.) Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that somebody you almost know personally is having success with it. 🙂 Me…it'd kill me. I live on sugar and carbs. Which is only slightly more healthy than lipgloss.

    dear nancy and jodi

    first, nancy, i think i stole that quote from C.S. Lewis; but don't quote me on that. and jodi…. i cannot BELIEVE your husband is still on the low carb diet. i mean honestly — i could swear that i remember back like 7 YEARS ago when you were telling us about his low carb diet. what a will of iron. actually, iron is one of the things you can eat in abundance on the low carb diet. However paper towels and toilet paper rolls should not be consumed. also, as a side order bonus, i'll share that you may eat leaves from a tree, but not the bark. You can eat a small kitten, but not its fur. It's tricky, but after a while you learn the do's and don'ts. To learn the rest, you'll have to buy the book.

    Man, I gotta get back on my diet!

    I did Atkins for about a year and lost 40+ pounds….gave it up and then gained it back. My clothes are calling from the closet….I have NONE to wear now b/c I cleared out the 'other' clothes. Oh to get back on it and stick there like before…..UGH!

    Actually not that much

    Scripture says when my brother offends me I have a few choices,

    I can

    Overlook it' It is to the glory of the Lord ot overlook an offense.

    Repay evil with good.

    Or go to the brother that has offended me.

    Those are my choices. In general I usually choose to overlook it and pray a silent prayer of blessing upon them. This keeps my heart from bitterness and God is the only one who can change a heart anyone.

    If I can't overlook it I must go to them before talking to anyone else about the offense. To do otherwise would compound the offense with my own sin of gossip. Not a good idea. Because then I would have to go to them and repent for my sin even if they never come to repent for their own. Humbling to say the least. And I have had to do that a few times. In a multitude of words their wanteth not sin. I have learned to keep my unkind words very few because of these experiences.
