Since yesterday morning I have been trying to defrost a 18 pound turkey for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving dinner.
This morning I was lugging it around, and it is quite heavy, to put it in a large pan of water, when I suddenly realized that I had lost much more weight than this heavy turkey in my hand. It was quite a realization.
As of this week I have lost over 30(+) pounds since January 22 of this year. That is when my cardiologist told me to lose 20 pounds. Well, I am an overachiever, plus on this low-carb diet I will lose weight. I am not trying too hard. I am NEVER hungry. I eat more than I ever did. Just very little carbs. I am sure my cholesterol is probably in excess of 500 … but he didn’t tell me to reduce my cholesterol (which was in the 90s). I only take 10mg of Liptor so I have plenty of scope to increase my dose.
I hope you all realize that turkey and ham is on sale all over N.H. this week. I have an upright freezer full of ham and turkeys! I have been picking up both every time I go by a supermarket. I am afraid to count. But, I think we have at least 5 turkeys and 5 hams — not counting what I took out for tomorrow.
So I went and fished out a 12 pound turkey.
That was 30 pounds. Devanee lugged them. She was suitably impressed.
30 pounds is 30 pounds.
