Well. Not really. I mean, I’m not on the beach. YET. But, I’ve just got 48 more sleeps until I will be lying on a beach. What better reason to TRY HARDER to lose weight?! I don’t wanna be mistaken for a massive marine mammal that’s washed up on the seashore. Between being a 47 year old woman and having Hashimoto’s Disease, losing weight is not as easily accomplished as it once was.

I remember my twenties. (Well, vaguely, anyway.) I could very simply cut FAT out of my diet, and the weight just FELL OFF. That does not work anymore. Ironically, now, all I eat is fat…well, protein, really. And, the weight comes off. I like to tell people I’m on the bacon diet.  I sort of am.  I fueled my yesterday (Tuesday) with two cups of coffee, several glasses of water, six slices of bacon. Then last night I went home and made homemade guacamole. Terry enjoyed his guac with tortilla chips. I enjoyed my half with a spoon.  Also, there may or may not have been some coconut vapor infused vodka somewhere in the mix of the evening. But, seriously, so long as it’s 70 proof or better, there are NO CARBS. So, it’s fine. Long story short? I woke up 3.5lbs less this morning than I did on Sunday.

Hmmm. UH-oHHH. Come to think of it, I’ve told a couple of people this morning that I’ve lost 4 pounds since the first of the week…Well. I’m not gonna revise my story. (Afterall, math never has been my strong suit.)

XO,
