South Beach Diet - Aloha!

View Full Version : Aloha!

Hi all! I'm popping in to get Lisa's fake-meat loaf recipe and just had to say hello. Things are going really well here in Hawaii! Lukas will be one in a week and a half and I can't believe it. Connor just turned ten last weekend - double digits eek! The girls are 7 and 5. Everyone is doing well. We're super busy with the house and home schooling but are still trying to make time for some beach and pool days. It's hard - so much on the to-do list!

I met and surpassed my original weight loss goal and am working toward a new one now. I'm not particularly full-fledged on South Beach but I'm eating healthily. Lukas is still exclusively nursing and has shown a severe reaction to any casein or dairy in my diet so I've had to pretty much go vegan, which has actually been a lot easier than I thought. He's also allergic to corn, so I can't have any corn starch or corn syrup, which of course hasn't been hard since I'm used to keeping those things out of my diet. He's doing great now that we figured out the allergy and we think we're going to try some avocado for him on his birthday. We have a tree out back so we thought it would be a fun first food for him.

Hope you all are well! I'll try to stop back in more frequently to check in. Miss you guys!

Hey love, glad you're around. I'm not a SBD devotee like I used to be. I'm just trying to eat healthy. I still try to follow the SBD way though. Hugs and kisses to the kiddies!

:wave: Kara! I've been keeping up with you on Facebook, but it's nice to have you check in here!

I'm glad you've discovered the source of Lucas's allergies and hope he enjoys his first taste of avocado! It seems remarkable that he's a year old already.
