Well, Walmart didn't have the MCT oil. They were out of stock. And I ran around again all morning that I didn't eat breakfast, I just had a small piece of hard cheese before I left to bring the kids to school. So I was pretty hungry for lunch. Posting my menu on the other thread...

Use Coconut Oil... from what I read earlier they're basically the same thing only different.

I second the coconunt oil is amazing! I fry my eggs and some to chicken salads add to coffee it is great for the skin too. I could just eat it from the bottle tastes a little sweet.

Yankee, Bonny Jean is right, just use the coconut oil. The only reason that I use the MCT oil is because it stays liquid, it isn't solid, so I can use it in cold things, like my egg salad.

I found a coconut oil by natures way and it is 65% MCT and stays in the liquid form I love it. Bought off amazon.

I have a victory to report..... but not mine. LOL My BF started eating this way about a month after I did. He went from 270 to 192. Then he had some changes to his medications and gained back to 207. For months he's been stuck at 207. He doesn't eat a hard core 72 menu, he eats more like the newer version of Atkins, with more veggies and nuts and things like that. He's tried so hard and been so frustrated about being stuck at 207. So when I got home from Kansas, I put him on the hard core 72 version, and he's lost 5 pounds in 2 days!! One more person to prove how well it works!

Himalayan vs Celtic Sea Salt.................

You know I'm actually thinking about doing a 50/50 mix of these two salts but tonight will be 1 oz of pork rinds as I haven't got to the store. They both have wonderful properties (84) minerals and such but one is higher in sodium and the other is higher in potassium so I figure if I use both then I'll be getting the best of both worlds?? I dunno? Don't you think?

I think I can get the Himalayan Pink at the big grocery chain but might have to go to one of those "health food" stores for the Celtic salt. I'm sure the refined stuff will work but I'm a "all the way or no way" kinda gal!

Hope you're all having a great day and nice evening ahead.

Hi all you Warriors!

Bmac - congratulations on the losses. You will will definitely be at a solid 45 lost at the end of August - you're doing so great!

Yankee - same here, nothing's changed!

Sherlock - hope you have whoosh soon!

Bonny - leg cramps Suck!! I'm sorry you're having to deal with them.

I hear you on being stuck, seems like I've been in the same range forever. I had those couple of 143 days and since have bounced around 144-146. Right now I'd just be happy to see 143 again!

Neener - seems like several of us are stuck right now. We will get this past this though - because we are warriors!!

So quiet here today! Bonny Jean, did you find that Lite Salt, or something similar to it? If not, I can mail you some from here, I'm sure we have it.

One a night was hard enough to deal with and now I'm getting multiples!! Well, I'll force some rinds down tonight and hopefully the salts help on the weekend and I'll be good...
well as long as the scale behaves!

I'm shocked there's so many of us stuck! I thought the summer would see whooshes everywhere!! Oh well girls, it'll happen. We just have to have a little tenacity and patience and we'll get there!

Ok, I don't know if you can even tell a difference in the photos, but what can I say? I've been hard at work denying carbs for nearly a year and I might only be 30 pounds down, but I'm DAMN PROUD of those pounds! I want to post some before and after photos. (ok, before and 'in progress'). Actually... I wasn't going to weigh again, but I couldn't wait! I lost a little more than a pound since yesterday! 231.4, which means nearly 35 pounds down!!!! Aww yeah, Atkins '72 rocks.

Before:



In Progress:

I'm sorry they're so big! I think I could fix it, but I've been at it for about ten min and I'm just not sure I have it in my today! My students are starting to show their true colors at school and I'd rather go eat my pork chop than fiddle around with infuriating technology anymore, lol!

Thank you Mothergoose. Sometimes it's hard for me to see a difference because I see myself every day, but looking back at pictures I can really see it, so it helps. I tried to find a full body, but oh my goodness, I was really good at avoiding those! I'll keep looking.

Hope everyone is doing well. Bonny, 4 leg cramps in a night!!!??? I never heard of such a thing! That's brutal.

thank you bonny jean! ick, though, it doesn't look so hot now. I was really hoping Atkins would be good for my acne, but sadly not. Hoooly moly, I have the worst breakout I've had in months! I hope it isn't related to Atkins 72.

Lily, the acne could be from your body detoxing from the carbs and sugar and garbage. So it's not because of the 72 eating, but it is from changing your way of eating.

leg cramps & other stuff

Bonnie-Jean, I get leg cramps and I have found that if I eat a couple drops of mustard they go away immediately....the woman that told me about this keeps a couple of the little take out packets on her night stand just in case. Its not the most delicious treat in the middle of the night but it works. have a glass of water too as a chaser.


So I have been away and all is good I need to sit down and figure out all the picture sharing

I have been reading your posts and boy everyone is being so supportive and wonderful as usual I feel like I have been on target 99% of the time I feel good and clothes is fitting better. I will weight myself Sept 1 I only do it the first of the month, but lately I have been thinking more often may help me stay on track. Good to be back.


Still having bathroom issues , once a week, I don't feel uncomfortable, but it does concern me a bit: annoyed:

well... I'd LOVE to believe that, trust me. Sadly I've been doing DANDR for about 8 months, so I'm pretty much detoxed, I think. I was eating a lot of butter and cream on DANDR though, maybe that's detoxing? Oh, and I was totally overdoing it on the butter, but I'm working on my butter addiction.

MtherGoos, that's awesome about your boyfriend! Yeah, I agree with Bonny Jean, you can be an Atkins 72 coach!

Bonny Jean, good luck with those salts...hope you get through tonight without any cramps!

Lily, I can definitely see a difference! You're beautiful!

Skinny you need to celebrate your stats girl. Amazing!!

Being stuck sucks.
