Great low-carb alternative to ketchup!

Bick's Hot Pepper Relish is a great alternative to ketchup if you like your burgers spicy! I'm getting to the bottom of my first one - and I can honestly say that I don't believe I've ever actually finished an entire bottle of relish of any kind! I usually end up trashing most of a bottle because it sits in my refrigerator for months - or years! This sugar-free relish is absolutely delicious... and inexpensive, too! I also purchased Bick's Tangy Dill Relish, too! I really enjoy it. Another great alternative for sugar-laden ketchup and other similar condiments.

Week #8: Another 5 lb gone!

It's now a grand total of 38 lb after another successful week at the scales. Next goal: Make it 40+. It's going very well and I can definitely feel the difference in my clothes and how I feel. I can actually walk without being completely out of breath. Oh, I'm not saying I could run a marathon, but it just ain't normal to be winded when you walk to the bathroom. (I'm exaggerating, but you get my drift.)

Last night, I attended my 25-year high school reunion and I had a great time! Stuck to low-carb treats in the buffet and stuck to water and diet soda all night. I don't care that I stayed away from the booze. At my next reunion, I'm gonna be the one everyone's pointing at and going, "Who's that?"... and then freaking out when they find out it's me.

No excuses!
