1.4 grams of carbs per 4 oz...

...that's the carb count for red wine. And as you can see here my attempts at the Atkins diet lasted a mere 3 days. Actually, last night I really wanted to indulge in a glass of wine while watching a movie with my hubby, so I did. Nothing like cuddling under his arm into his warm body with a glass of wine in hand. Here I am about to eat a carb-loaded banana. The wine is just for emphasis. I'm just no good on diets. I did go to the gym today and burned my usual 600 calories. My next tactic will be to try to eat small bits more often through the day. I am going to try to eat before I get hungry; eat just a small amount. I think the problem with waiting until I get hungry is that I fix too much to eat. So, I'm defeated again but at least I'm not a grouch anymore!

Karen, What a wonderful photo! I am laughing my ass off. (Hmmm....there's a weightloss idea: just keep laughing!)

My brother-in-law lost 68 pounds in one year, several years ago, by not eating between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. (no snacking after dinner), not eating desserts, and taking a neighborhood walk 2 or 3 times a week.
