I got up this morning eager to weigh after yesterday's carb down day and before today's carb up. I started at a weird time so my day's aren't on track with the traditional WOE. Anyway, I am down 3 more lbs. That makes for a total of 16 after just 3.5 weeks. Maybe I will reach the advertised 26 by the end of the 8 weeks.

However, I still have my old mind set so I went to get dressed and put on some shorts that I had bought in Houston at the first of the month. I can't keep them up. I didn't think they were that bad and had to hurry out the door to take my daughter to cheerleading camp. When I got there I thought I had become a sagger and I didn't have any cool boxer tops to show off. Yikes. I finally decided I could roll down the top to help keep them up. I gave that up after an hour and came home to change. All the other mothers had quit hovering so I thought it was okay to leave. Besides, they had just passed out red and orange juice for the kids to drink in their white t-shirts that we had just paid $25 for. Couldn't stay for that nonsense!

I am doing the diabetic menus for the carb up day so I can spread my carbs out more evenly. I am afraid I would go into a coma if I had two huge meals so late at night. I do look forward to some waffles so I may have that cause I saw on one menu that it was okay to have breakfast for dinner on carb up days.

I am confused about the cottage cheese. I read on the blogs that you have to switch to lowfat after the first week. I can't find that in the book anywhere. If anyone can find the answer let me know.

I know my sister was worried about all the "bad" food in her house this weekend. The only answer I have for that is take my kids for a week and they will clean you out!

I had my first starch today. Yummo. I keep forgetting to look at the diabetic menus.

Good job...keep it up.
