One month down and a lifetime to go. I am getting really enthusiastic about this new lifestyle. I can't believe that I just did not grasp the importance of a change for life. I was too caught up in losing weight. Now things are different. Losing weight is very important to me, but I look at it as a consequence of a healthy zero carb lifestyle. I know I will get to my designed weight by following a strict zero carb diet without cheats. Dave has drilled over and over again that cheating or cheat days are a formula for disaster. I will not fall into that trap or that fantasy that I am immune to such things. I have failed in the past because I opened the door to a place where I had no business to go. I have a positive outlook now and I am determined to continue down this road. I did not go to work today. I had some personal business to take care of with a friend. I will not get into that part of my life here. I ate me first meal at a restaurant and another one at home . Thank goodness for the abundant tex-mex places to eat here. I can always depend on grilled beef, chicken, shrimp and fish at most of these type of restaurants. I stuck to beef fajitas. I asked the waiter how they were made. He said they marinade them in a little lime juice, salt and pepper. It was all good. I gave all the extras to my lunch mate. the lunch we had was a little early around 11 am. I was not very hungry later in the day and had the last of the beef ribs. No move on the scale and nothing else to report at this time. Thanks for all your support and thanks again to Monica and Dave for your comments and support.
