New Week

I have gained 3 more pounds. My fault. I indulged a bit more over the weekend. Had beer 🍻 and pizza 🍕, French fries 🍟,jelly beans and lots of fruit. Was it a good idea? I thought so at the time.

I think it is time to start watching my portions. And I need to eat more veggies. I have noticed that I am not craving things that I ate while on keto. Like beef, chocolate, nuts, eggs and bacon. I find this a bit strange. They are all foods I love. What has changed? Not sure, but will figure it out. I’m doing this intuitive eating without any help. Just Google helping me. I can’t afford to pay for a couch or books. I dont have the money. So I am winging it! Wooohooo! Lots of reading on free sites, means I have to figure out what is good advice and what is not. No worries, I am smart, I’ll figure it out.

No plans this week. Need to do a trip to Costco. Saturday is my granddaughters 3rd birthday. Will be so good to see her. Other than that, I am just my life to the fullest. Watching tv, crocheting and eating whatever I want.




Beer and Hotdogs

Saturday dinner was hotdogs. I haven’t had a hotdog in ages. I gobbled up 2 dogs and the buns! Had fries on the side. Plus 2 beers throughout the day. I didn’t feel guilty for any of it. But later in the evening I sure was bloated. Didn’t have IBS pain but my tummy felt like I had swallowed a beach ball. I think I just had too much. Next time one beer, one dog and a few fries.

Sunday we had chili. Yummy! Today has been good. I’m trying to get control of my portion size. I know I am pigging out. I need to cut back or I really will gain a lot of weight. Something I don’t want to have happen. I keep telling myself that it’s ok to eat what you want, but now you need to slow down and think before you shovel it down. Not easy to do after eating everything for the past month.

I’m a work in progress. I will get there. Positive vibes!


I decided to go through some of my clothes. at least 50% are too small. Not sure what to do with them. I keep thinking I will fit into them again once I lose 15 lbs. I will get there. When my body and mind connect and want to do it. For now I am putting them in storage. I’m not ready to part with them.

I guess I will have to get some clothes that fit. I need undies.. LOL

Don’t know if you noticed lately about sizes? Back in the 80’s the sizes were so different. I was a size 32 inch waist or a size 13. Yeah, like what is that? Now it’s suppose to be a size 12. If that is true then a size 8 shouldn’t fit me. I even have a size 6 jeans! Mostly I wear a 10. But when I measure my waist it’s a 34 inches around at the belly button. That would be a size 14.

I think what the difference is, is that jeans are now made with so much stretch you have to buy a smaller size. I tried to find 100% cotton denim jeans. Let me tell you that it wasn’t easy. I didn’t want heavy work jeans. Thin denim ends up being dress trousers. Not what I was looking for. I decided to look for Lee Riders, I loved those back in the old days. I found some! They have 5% spandex added to them. It was the closest I could find to 100% denim.  They are comfy, a bit heavy and I had to adjust the back waistline. Had a big gap. What size? 10. and they were a bit big. Now that I am not dieting, they fit perfectly….LOL

It’s the same with Bras.  I am size 36C, ha! not anymore! I just went up to a 38B. So nice when a bra fits. Next it’s undies. need a bigger size. My issues with panties is the cut. I never know what to get. I don’t like granny panties, way too high. Boyshorts end up riding my ass cheeks and I am forever picking at them, same goes for thongs and high cut. I end up with bikini style. But even those are not great. Maybe I need to go get fitted at a lingerie shop?

Anyways, I’m still working on it!


Canada Day

Canada Day has come and gone. Not a big deal to me. Sure I used to love to go party and drink beer. Now it’s just another day to me. I’m proud to be a Canadian. I am an immigrant from Brazil. Came here when I was 2 years old. I’m thankful to live here. I’m just not one of those that needs to celebrate.

Fireworks are pretty, but not necessary. So loud for all the animals. With how dry everything is there is a big chance of causing a fire. It’s bad enough that nature is burning up the province. I live in BC. The damage so far has been awful. The small village on Lytton is gone. Who knows what town will be next. I have friends and family all over the province and I hope that they will all be safe.

Tomorrow I get my second shot. Will be a relief to finally have it. I hope others are getting the vaccine too.
