I am hoping to lose 45 pounds in the next year. My good friend, Ruth, has inspired me by her weight loss and posts on her blog "Weigh Faithful" - my prayer is to "Weigh Faithful 2" in the next 52 weeks!

Low Carb with A Focus on VEGGIES!!
A lot of people cringe when they hear about the low-carb diet. We tend to think it is a lot of meat and little vegetation and nutrition. But, when I am on a low carb diet, I focus on the veggies and even have a small fruit or small piece of fruit when I am needing it. I drink one cup of milk a day and a little cheese too. Nuts are my favorite snack in between meals, which all of this together makes a pretty balanced diet. It is also a good way to start a diet, because it is really hard for me to get off of sugar. The transition to a regular diet just takes a little meat out, and adds some bread. The hope is, and has been done in the past, to stay off of sweets after I get off of the low-carb diet. In this picture you can see my salad from lunch today. It is Artisian lettuce, both red and green and it was sooo good with a few carrots, tomatoes, and cheese.
