Surviving Day 1

Here it is, day 1 of the BIG DIET and why am I posting a picture of chocolate pistachio nut biscotti? Because that's just how I roll! Or maybe I'm a little demented? Ok, ok, I made the biscotti yesterday as a "farewell" in "farewell to eating" anything remotely delicious for awhile.
Several years ago, I did a low carb diet and lost a good 44 pounds. However, because I did not continue to live this "lifestyle," I have gained a good portion of it back. So here I am, chubby as all heck and ready to begin, yet again. It is 7:16 pm and I have made it through this day with willpower. I even visited my treadmill today and enjoyed it. Did I just say enjoyed? Who would have thought?
I'm posting all of this so that when a day comes when there is no willpower(tomorrow? LOL) I can look back, read this and be refocused. Sounds like a plan, right?
If you are dieting and have survived Day 1, (or maybe for some of you this is Day 4) congratulations & keep up the good work! I plan to go to bed early tonight, lest those Pop Tarts in the cupboard start singing a torch song to me. LOL (Did you ever notice when you're dieting, the things you'd never even think of eating in a regular day, start looking really appetizing? Like those darn Pop Tarts in my cupboard!)

Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. Hi Gina,
    Congratulations on surviving Day 1:-) I know starting a new way of eating is very difficult, but I know you can do it! Good luck my dear friend...I'm rooting for you. I also struggled with my weight for some time, but recently have lost 50 plus pounds. I'd be happy to share any tips with you if you like or if you just need someone to encourage you...I'm your gal. Have a wonderful week. Stay strong! Happy New Year!

    Hugs and Kisses,
