Thanks everyone! This is why I can't stay away, you are all so awesome! lol I made the pumpkin muffins with soy flour, and made like a cake with it, but it wasn't very sweet, so it was more liek a bread, but absolutley delicous! I'm hoping I can get back into some good habits before Christams hits, There is always low carb options, I just need the will power to stay away form the sugar when we all go to family's for Christmas dinner!!! I will check out the carb counter, and I think I also need to invest int he meal plans, because If I don't have somehting right then and there, I can get derailed as well :/

So, I just cooked and ate turnips for the very first time in my life, and OMG! They are SOOOOOOOO GOOD!!! My son says they taste just like a potato to him lol
I made a stew with elk meat, cauliflower, broccoli, green onions, mushrooms and some herbs n spices, every body wanted seconds! I'm truly amazed. this will be a new staple, since I have not been that impressed with the Jicama, and it's hard to find..and I have missed that potato-y textured type veggie:) woop woop! so excited tonight! Next time would like to throw in a red bell pepper or some tomatoes to add some color. Very impressed with my little turnip freind lol btw...does ANYONE know carb count for this little tuber???

We made some turnip fries, haven't tried them yet..we are all so full :)

On a side note, I missed you guys. been a tough past few weeks. Thanksgiving de-railed me a little, and the carbs started sneaking back my 4 whole pounds shrunk to 1.5 :( bad me.  ::)

I also had a funeral last week, my foster sister, AND then yesterday, was suffering the effects of my polycystic ovarian disease, it is very painful, and didn't help my attitude. which the diet to ease the symptoms for THAT is ALSO low carb/high protien. What did I do?? Ate high carb/sugar comfort foods, and made it worse. urgh!

But I am back again, I'm a danged stubborn girl, and I REFUSE to give up!!! I will NOT let this sugar addiction win! I WILL beat this weight :) You ALL are in my prayers, and I thank you for all of your inspiring thoughts and words, y'all are TRULY an amazing group of people

How wonderful! See, I KNEW I had to log in today, I have read such amazing things :) You guys here my my not so little FTS family always are so wonderful to eachother, the whole world should be like this LOL Ah, but I gush...Temptation is always hardest when I am at work, I previously worked in a vet clinic, and if anyone here has ever worked in one you know..there is ALWAYS somehting to snack on, and rarely any of the good stuff:( For as active as I was, I ate horribly. Now, I work in a grocery store (just made closing supervisor! woop woop) And, of course, there are all the temtations times 10!!! Dang it!!! But, I can just as easily avoid them, because I have so many more choices. Just like Doug says stay the course, I am SO PROUD of YOU for your self-control!  ;D ;D ;D ;D
