It’s been a while since I have popped on and shared life from around here.
9 weeks with a loss of 40 lbs. and filled with so much more energy.
Don’t get me wrong I want more to come off, but this has shown me if I
set myself up for success I will achieve it.
Yes, I gave up all processed foods, fats, grains, nuts, milk products of all kinds,
as well as fasting for 14-16 hours each day but my body loves it!
I have been painting like crazy too, and I actually am coming out of retirement,
part time at first but imagine that. I will drive a small truck two times a week,
delivering US Mail. It was my favorite job with my rig 17 years ago. This will be
easier but the hours are the worst.
I will wake by 1 am and roll out to a location 20 miles away, then hop in the truck and drive
it over and fill it with mail (racks on wheels) for a location about 45-60 min away, in good
weather with no traffic. I am feeling that much better!
OK here are three of my latest Watercolors hope you like them. For those who follow me on Facebook and Instagram I am sure you have seen them.
The middle one is a failure, but I tried lol.
Take care we have a snowstorm headed our way well actually maybe back-to-back storms,
so much for my green lawn and budding trees. Come on SPRING!

That’s fantastic Eunice – both the weight loss and the new job. And I love your paintings… looks so pretty in the snow. Your header is gorgeous too. Keep it up and give yourself a pat on the back. Hugs! 🤗
Thank you, yes, we went out for seafood tonight to celebrate 🙂 That header is my yard and still not sure why I do the scenes I do lol I really love spring, summer and fall NOT WINTER
The images are beautiful!
Lovely paintings Eunice. Well done on the weight loss. I understand some of the challenges involved, having lost a significant amount of weight several years ago.
Thank you 🙂 Yes,I was a professional dieter and just yoyoed. 😦
This time I have been successful for about 6 years. Previously, I took it off and put it back on, mostly at an increased amount.
I know what you mean. Some make it so easy but to do this one I gave up everything a poor person ate lol now though still struggling I just landed a part time job that will finally bring me above the USA poverty level the accident was 22 years ago I had to get off the crazy train and do something drastic. In 30 days, there will be splurge days but no binging on say chips and dips 🙂 maybe dip with celery and that will be teaspoons worth if I even desire that stuff anymore most I no longer do. Congrats on your success I for one know how hard it is.
We used the Keto Diet, which is low carbs. During the course of the diet, I kept my carbs to between 20-30 mg. Once I got off and maintained, I try to stay in the 100 mg/day range.
Dark chocolate, in moderation, is a wonderful treat as it is low carbs.
Good luck with the diet and the new job. It must be an exciting time.
Thank you mine must be a version of Keto as well no sugar, milk, cheese, flour, corn, peas, nuts etc.
Took them all out for 90 then add the dark choc. and a bit of avocado back it so far. All the exercise I will be paid for on this new job will hopefully get me to my goal. Thanks for the heads up I will pay more attention 🙂
Yes, that is kind of where I went and then gradually added raw, not processed, nuts. I only have processed ones on flights.
🙂 good to know I can succeed thanks so much.
Thanks so much.
