Default Slippery slope warning...

Just wanted to share my experience. I've had pnuemonia and still aren't back up to speed. While I was actively sick, I had no appetite.

However, now that I'm starting to feel better, my appetite is back with a vengeance, and over the past few days I've been going to lunch with relatives & friends...and not being vigilant. As well as all the "therapeutic" regular ice cream I've been eating because it's the only thing I can eat...

So I'm digging my heels in right now. Had a great low carb day yesterday and I'm already feeling mpre in control of my appetite. It's easy to loose sight of what's going on when one is so sick, but I'm back and getting better.

Pam, glad you're feeling better. It's great you're reining yourself in before things slip out of control. Good luck on getting back on track.

Thanks, Red & Kathy, I'm getting better slowly.

All it really took to get me back in line was wearing regular clothes instead of pajamas...and finding out they were a bit snug.

That scared me straight!

You are doing great, hon! Keep it up. Sometimes it IS tempting to just say, "Screw it", but you HAVE to keep on going.
