Until we resign ourselves to what has to be done and not view it as an experience in torture, success will be elusive. Even though I have given up carbs for the most part and almost all of the time, I am so thankful for what I CAN have, not what I can't. I have beautiful salads even though they are without cheese and croutons. My avocado plate with sweet potato and hard boiled eggs is great. I say go out and buy yourself a beautiful place setting for just for you. I bought a plate from a potter here in Centerville that is slightly rounded up like a pie plate and it is great for salads and my other meals. My diet really is somewhat repetitive but I don't mind because I like it and it's healthy and it helps me lose weight. I have my raisin bran muffin every morning. I don't miss very many days having a big salad. My Quest bars are another pretty much daily thing as is an apple. I did cook up some pork loins last night. I did not bread them but fried them to brown them (yes, in bacon grease - adds flavor. I seasoned them well with a blend of spices that I have. I browned them and then put the lid on the pan, turned down the heat, and slowly cooked them until tender because they were very thick. I drained them well and they are ready to go for a meal adding a couple of vegetables. I often have some 90% dark chocolate as a dessert.
