Heather look at the chart again. I dont think it is what could be stalling you. You would have to eat a lot to get too many carbs, I am thinking. I of course could be way wrong but gosh it is giving measurements in tablespoons and teaspoons.

Now I do see a tab. of Cinnamon has some carbs but Heather can you eat a tab of it??

Wow that chart blows mind. No wonder it's taking me forever to get to goal weight.

FIL coming home Mon. On my 14 th load of wash at his house. Everything smells ugh. At least bedroom done . DH just installing new mini blinds. We are getting a caregiver for a few hours a day to start with and see what happens. When we met with the social worker she said he needs help at home. A home health nurse and physical therapist will come twice a week. He thinks he will be renewing his license in Nov. At 91 he shouldn't be driving anyway. I don't think he will ever walk without assistance. He is getting a walker and wheelchair. I'm still scared about what they will say about his bathroom. You can't just fix it in a day. It needed to be gutted. Kit hen ok since he won't really be in there. So much stress. The worst is yet to come when he finds out everything we did. Hopefully he will be happy. It had to be done.

Heather you have probably have lost more since I last posted. Hope all is well.

Ml I don't even have to ask. Losing losing losing. Proud of you.How did the cake turn out?

Heather did you make your special pie?

Cathleen love and hugs. Can't wait for the earrings .

Ok back to laundry and they don't have AC

Love to everyone

Linda. Sorry for any errors. On cell again

My birthday is Oct 2 and my sister's is the 7th. To busy to think about special plans.

Well here I am again. Where is everyone? FIL has absoutely refused a caregiver. He thinks BIL who lives there will do it including hygiene. We are having a pow wow today to discuss it. If BIL quits his three day a week job FIL says he will pay him but when the shift is over he still has to be there. It's a 24/7 responsibility. FIL thinks that he will just go everywhere with BIL. Of course we are there to help but the Social Worker said remember you have a life too. It's a real stressor for me right now. He is 91 and the only parent left so I want him as comfortable as possible. He does have the means to have help but refuses. He is very stubborn to say the least!!! At least he is coming home to a new bedroom. He will probably hate that too. I did 14 loads of smelly laundry yesterday and probably the same amount today.

Well at least I don't think about eating. I forgot about lunch all together. Amazing for a food addict.

Cathleen thanks so much for your kindness in sending me the chart. I really appreciate it. Love and hugs


ML, i cook with a lot of herbs and spices and it can add up. I have the Atkins Carb book and will look it up there if I have time today. I just couldn't believe the carbs listed.

Have a good day. Another heat wave here in Cali. Time for shorts. Ha Ha I hven't worn shorts in 20 years.

Linda

Oh Linda so sorry your FIL is being stubborn about help. Obviously if you guys thought BIL could have done the job you would have approached him first. And if BIL already lives there why was it such a mess for you to clean up! He should've been helping all along I really hope you are able to have atleast a stressfree birthday

Frances:jumpjo y:

Yes Frances it is indeed working!!!!!!!!!

I have NEVER EVER been able to lose as easy as I am losing today!

I am 2 ounces heavier than I was last time I posted my weight. Friday, I think. I just weighed and I am 162.4

It is so dang EASY!

Kcal restriction and UD-DD!!!! Plus carb restriction. As soon as I weigh 150 I am going to raise carbs and see if I can hold that weigh. If I can learn to hold weigh, I will be hollering so loud I will be heard around the globe!!!!!!!!!

This page will explode from my :sing :

Gosh go get them shorts on sweet friend.

I'm sorry your FIL is being hardheaded. Maybe if he would just see yall are doing the very best you can and tell him he will have to stay in the home where he is if he does not give a little and let others help him. Mama was like that too.
She wanted me and me only. Linda you already know ............

Well I do hope for the best to happen.
91 is getting to that age when we need help. I hope I can live to see 90...The way I have treated my body I am lucky it has keep me upright for this long. And ashamed at what I have done to myself all of these years. Up down! Up down....

Hey I have been doing UD and DD all of my life!


We had a busy weekend. H had a great 60th B-Day!

Linda. Sorry for any errors. On cell again

My birthday is Oct 2 and my sister's is the 7th. To busy to think about special plans.

Hi Linda,
I can really relate to what you are going through with your FIL. I went through this with my Mom a couple years ago. She is 92 now and finally things have settled and I think she is content with were she is now. Her house was two stories and her bed room was up stairs. She would not consider any help or moving to a one story. She would not listen to reason! We tried everything until she fell down the stairs one night and she never set foot in that house again
It was the hardest thing I have ever done. So much stress and guilt.
That is when my weight reach the highest.

Yes I mad the SF cheesecake and I am happy to say that I cut it in half and put half in the freezer immediately, so all I had was one slice.

When I went to see my Mom today I brought her a Reese's, her favorite candy bar.
She will not eat unless I do too, so I pretended to eat one of the cups.
She really enjoyed it!!!!
I offered her the second one but she said "no".
So I took it home.
I was a little uncomfortable driving home with it next to me in the car but as soon as I got out of the car it went right into the trash!!!
Boy did that feel good!
Our days together are numbered and I am very glad that I could give her something that she enjoys so much.
I am also glad that I was able to avoid eating it!

No Heather I can Not imagine EVER weighing 140! I do not think I weighed 140 when I was in the 6th grade!!!!
147 is the lowest weight I have ever been. And that was 2004. and I only weighed that one morning. after that I stopped weighing. I thought I had it all figured out and I just knew I would NEVER EVER gain again. After mama died I do remember weighing and I had gained 5 pounds. I was back to 154-155? Dont remember exactly.
My picture at that time with mama is in my Gallery, here.

I'm so blown away I can hardly think straight!
And it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooo easy!!
