My husband tells me, "thanks to your lack of planning this holiday season, we've all gained weight." (Let's include Columbus Day right on through today as the "holiday season.")
He is right, I haven't been planning. I've been going for convenience, and the whole family is paying in terms of weight gain. (I can hear screams in the background, "why doesn't he take some responsibility!" But, I do buy most of the food, and that is where the problem comes in.)
My daughter is in a band, and I have kids over constantly (check out their site at www.undecidedyouth.com.) All of these other kids are beanpoles, and they like to eat lots of junk. Junk also has another advantage, it is cheap! And when you are feeding a crew, it is also easy. No prep except open a bag or a box or a can. Low carb food, real food, is usually more expensive and requires more prep and ingenuity to create the variety that is available in pre-packaged foods. So, I've got to do it.
I'm going to reread one of my great New Years' Eve Resolution posts... hope you can follow my journey back on the low carb lifestyle.
And to all you folks who have written and want to go back on the newsletter... I'm going through them now!
