After Vacation: Carb Detox

Just call me the Li-Lo of dieting. I am back from vacation and I am in carb detox. Please, someone write a tabloid article about me!

I'm not even getting on the scale until Sunday. That'll give me 5 days to get myself back in order at least. I know I've gained, it is just a question of how much. And I can't bear to get on that scale. Maybe by Sunday, it'll only be something like 5 lbs. Ha. Maybe.

I had carbs every day I was away. Bread. Pasta. Rice. Potato. My old friends, how I missed them. Not to mention Chocolate Lava Cake.

I also swam laps, sat in a jacuzzi, walked the beach for miles. I wonder if any of that helped at all. I did those things because I wanted to though, not in an effort to combat my eating.

I also slept a lot, which was a good thing.

So onward....still without a haircut. The co-worker's wedding is looming closer. I just might have to get a buzz cut. Boo-Yah!

PS Oh yes....people's reactions? Well, my mother said I didn't look like I lost as much as I said I had. Umhm yup. My sisters said I looked great. My mother later toasted to me over DRINKS and carb-ladened dinner saying "To the new Donna." Ha. Nice. My friends said I looked good. Overall, it doesn't matter. When the next 40 lbs is gone, that's when it'll be drastically different. OK, yeah, I've got to get there first.

And to those who wonder if they could do this: If you had to lose 30 lbs, you'd be at goal by now!

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
