The loading Days...

You would think eating everything you crave all day as much as you want would be a dream.
But I can tell you, it isn't!  On Loading days you are required to eat as much as you can all day.
It is suggested you eat the things you think you crave, that you would HATE to give up. For me that is Tiramisu, fried clams, mashed potatoes, butter, whipped cream, Tangaray, Chamborde, and onion rings.
Not necessarily in that order or together.   I had allot of  those things and I feel GROSS!!

Starting again in 2014.

So  I am starting again, yes we all fall off the healthy eating kick and back into bad habits.
But I am not going to STAY there. and keep gaining weight. I am going to catch it, nip it in the bud and get back to being healthy and at a resonable weight.
I just turned 50. the BIG FIVE OH!  and I want to be a sexy 50!
So I start again on this plan
