Wow! 7 hours without food and I'm still here!
« on: August 09, 2012, 07:04:49 PM »
Since I'm on my short break, I slept in today pretty late.  I woke up around 10:30 (WAAAYYY too late for me because I'm a morning person but needed the sleep) and ate my usual low carb breakfast of an almond/flax muffin with some natural pb and 2 pieces of sausage, plus coffee.  Even with the PB at 3 carbs, the whole thing is about 6 carbs max.  So breakfast was at about 10:40. Then a friend called and I had to take her to the doctor and I spent the rest of the day out of the house, with no access to anything but some breath mints (sugar free) and some water.

When I got home, I was a little hungry, but my blood sugar was NICE and STABLE  ;D!!  I realized that it was 5pm and I would need to eat when I got home, but even when we went to Walgreens for medication, NOTHING tempted me! I have lost the cravings because the carbs are in check and the wheat is nowhere to be found. THIS is the gift of the FTS lifestyle. I am steady and in control and food is something I consume for nourishment, not because some drug like phisiological response is controlling me and driving me to do something that I have to fight. It's just so lovely..... :) It's so awesome to be in control and to walk by the nasty addictive foods. I'm really liking the power here.  8)

Thanks everyone! We ALL have the power because carbs and wheat no longer have power over all of us! I wish I had a picture of the ruby slippers that Dorothy wore because as Glinda said, "She's always had the power within her...she just didn't know it" (or some variation of that).

Bet Umpa wasn't hungry with all of that waiting around for flights to come and go!  :D

The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies. SO MUCH wisdom, metaphor, symbolism, and life truths throughout that magical munchkin land. Another example of art explaining life through art. I love art.  :-*

The Wizard of Oz always makes me cry!

Back in the olden days, it was broadcast once a year at Christmas time and we'd always watch and I'd ALWAYS cry at the end.

Being from Kansas it has always been one of my favorites  ;D ;D ;D  I was just back home visiting family in Kansas City.  We went to a pub to listen to my sister-in-law sing some jazz.....Lots of fun, but while there.....of course there was a lady who happened to be named Dorothy.  She had on the most fabulous sparkly red shoes  Haha   I wish now I had snapped her picture    ;D ;D ;D
