Chelsey - So proud of you for being fully back on the horse. It's so hard to get on the LC horse. But once here, I think it's decently easy to hang on. So hang on, girl!!

MthrGoose - you are most definitely at the home stretch. Congratulations on the whoosh!!! That must have felt great this morning!!

Arb - your losses are super impressive!!! Wow!!

As for me, I hit my goal of exercising 4 times last week. I feel so sore and so much stronger already. I know it's all mental at this point, but it feels good!! I also am on day 6 of LC and feel firmly on track. It's one day at a time of course. But so far so good... I am 2 pounds above my Christmas gain. I'm also 25 above my 2012 low. Both are within reach. Yay!
I'm hanging on girl, trying to at least! Once I get a few good days in, Im usually golden until dreaded week 3. If I can make it past that, I am good until the next hurdle

I am so glad you are taking the time to exercise and take care of you! You DESERVE it! Maybe some of your exercise motivation will rub off one me (even though I cancelled my gym membership in December ) I can always try to work out at home I suppose!

Here's the headlines...........

Cold weather warnings issued for all of Manitoba on Monday morning

How does -50C or -58F sound!!!!! Holy hell, I don't know how I made it to work this morning. It is so cold out there. Lots of schools closed, thank God. Car wouldn't start with the remote even though it was plugged in. It did key start so hopefully will run when I get outta work.

Sure miss my comfort foods on days like this. Hope you're all well and happy today!!

Congrats to mthergoos, Bonny and Chelsey! Nice drops! KUTGW!!

Great job bulldogmom getting back on track! I'm with ya!! I'm praying I get into ketosis soon so it gets easier.

Bonny, that is crazy cold! We are supposed to have wind chill of -10 to -20 tomorrow and all the schools will be cancelled due to the cold. We are wimps in the DC area! Kids were out of school Friday and today due to weather too. Crazy winter this year!

Shelly, congrats and keep it up! I'm so proud of you. I know how hard it is, especially when you're stuck inside due to cold weather. Hang in there and KUTGW! It will keep getting easier and easier!

Today I had coffee with HWC, chia pudding, small SF yogurt, small salad, handful of almonds and a lamb kabob from a local Iranian place (so yummy!!).

Have a great night and stay warm!

Hello everyone. I am joining in.
My goal for this month is to get firmly in Ketosis.
I am also going to be mindful to not over eat cheese.

I made faux mashed potatoes for the first time and they were so good.
Loving my crock pot for easy meals. Going to do chicken breasts, cream cheese, italian seasoning and mushrooms for tomorrow.

Welcome Nicik!
trini I hope your asthma gets better

I managed to stay away from a lot of the sf candy today. I did make some candied peacans though. With sugar for my family and with sweetner for me. So Yum! That was my lunch. Plus a Lot of water. Had pizza for supper. Just cheese, sauce and veggies for me, no crust.

Up a little, but I am not going to sweat it...probably just water as I swear I ended up drinking close to a gallon of it (my daughter is always wondering how I can drink so much water and I tell her "It is the one thing I can do mindlessly that's actually good for me!).

My elbow almost feels normal again. Hoping to be able to get back to doing my arm weight routine in the next few days.

I do crunches everyday, but I do do other things as well, squats, calf raises, planks, and other little exercises for my butt and legs. I hate the bingo arm thing though!

WTG Shelly! I am so proud of you!

Great job getting back on track Asmallerme! I'm right there with you!! Let's do this!

Trini, I hope you feel better!

Welcome nicik!! This is a great forum and I'm glad you joined!

I am struggling tonight with cravings. Kids don't have school tomorrow due to weather so my oldest son is having a sleepover. They've popped popcorn and made ice cream sundaes. The smells and thought of what they're eating is killing me! So, I decided to get in bed early, grab my ipad and read/post here to keep my focus. I've really been bad with slip ups the last few months and I'm trying very hard to stay on plan. Being stuck in the house all day tomorrow will not be easy!! I miss the days when I was in deep in ketosis for an extended period and I had zero cravings! I was truly in the zone and I want to get there again!!

Have a great night!

Asmallerme, good job on the exercising! KUTGW!

Bonny-Jean, stay warm! We can have comfort foods, just got to find low carb comfort foods!

niciK, Welcome!

Trinigirl, Feel better and get some rest! I hear the flu virus is running rampant so be careful!

Shelly, do what you have to do to conquer those cigarette cravings! You are doing awesome!

Gypsy, glad your elbow is better! I need to follow your lead and drink more water. Its hard during cold weather to get it in. I'm into warm liquids at the moment.

Julie, stay strong! My cravings have been bad too while I get back on track. I literally had a battle with a wheat thin cracker and some cheese this evening. Luckily my bulldog came along and took it off my hands for me. LOL

Thanks ya'll!
Julie my kids are out of school again tomorrow. We didn't get That much snow but we're such a rural area that 98% of the buses run on dirt roads. Plus it's been So Cold!

I made it another day Not smoking!! Most of the day went really well but for some reason after supper I wanted to smoke SO bad! I almost caved but went and did dishes instead and then sat down with the Hubs to watch some football and the craving eased. Yes I still have about a half a pack in my purse. For some weird reason I can't get rid of them yet. I don't Want to smoke em just keep em Lol! I've drank a Ton of water today so i'm thinking that helps. I'm Praying we can get out of the house tomorrow before I go stir crazy!

It's cold here too. Brrrr! It's been -40C to -50C for over a month here. My vacation can't come soon enough. 2 weeks on the Caribbean ! Stay warm my friend! I'd say find a recipe for faux potatoe soup but you don't cook, right? If I still lived in Manitoba I'd bring you some, lol!

Too funny bulldogmom! I managed to stay strong. However, I think I just ate too much yesterday as the scale was up this morning. I was hungrier yesterday than the previous two days. Will try to reduce calories today.

Shelly, congrats on another successful day of not smoking! I'm so happy for you! You're doing great!!

Nice drop arb!

I hope everyone is staying warm! Crazy cold day today. I have to struggle through making a carrot cake for my friend at work whose birthday is tomorrow. It's her favorite. It will be hard to not lick the spatula with the cream cheese frosting! I will be strong though! I hate the way my belly looks right now! The rolls I had worked so hard to get rid of are back. I want my shirts to fit well and look good again. I swear all the weight I gained back went straight to my boobs and gut! True apple shape here.

Have a great day everyone!

Thanks everyone for the support. It feels soooo good to be back on track. I swear I say this every single time, but it makes me wonder why I so easily stray away from this WOE when it feels so good/natural/easy.

Pcalt - WTG on moving the scale down some today!!

Julie - I have no idea how you are surviving in that house!! Popcorn, sundaes, carrot cake, OH MY!! No way. Good job staying strong. I'm a total apple shape too. My legs could fit in a size 12 or so pant and look nice, but my belly requires a size 18.

Shrinking - Arb - Bonny - Everyone - Stay warm!! It was 23 here this morning and I thought I was dying. So I cannot imagine how cold you all are. Bundle up, drink hot coffee, and stay inside!!

I had another great day yesterday. I didn't weigh this morning but will look again tomorrow. I technically gave up coffee but am having one glass right now for some warmth. I'm frozen!! It's not going to be a habit or anything I do daily though. So my menu is:
B: coffee w/ 1/2 and 1/2 and 1 splenda; handful of almonds
L: turkey rollups with cheese and mayo
D: not sure. May finish my ground beef and top it with a fried egg and srirachi sauce. Or I may go out tonight. Leaning towards the beef/egg thing at home and saving the $$.

Before the 1st (and my re-start), my 4 year old saw me in the kitchen opening a Hershey's kiss while I was making dinner. He said, "mommy, sugar is bad for you!! Don't eat that. You have to eat healthy stuff first." He learned that sugar should be eaten in moderation at his daycare and now thinks its the devil. So he acted as my Bandit and made me put it away. haha

Wow! Some nice drops today! Congrats to gypsy, Shelly, Chelsey, pink, Amber, Bonny and pcaltman for your drops and staying on plan! KUTGW!

I made it through the sleepover night of junk food, pancake breakfast and now carrot cake is baking in the oven. OMG my house smells heavenly!! I'm going to make myself a nice cup of coffee with HWC and caramel SF DaVinci syrup. That should help me survive while making cream cheese frosting!

I had to run to the store for supplies and I froze! That wind chill out there bites! It hurt to breathe!

I hope you're feeling better trinigirl!! My little guy has allergy induced asthma and I know it's not fun! Hope you're doing well!

I hope everyone has a great day! Stay strong Shelly! We are all rooting for you!! KUTGW!

You know, you guys... it's pretty scary to think that I'm eating like this and only getting a deficit of 4-500 calories a day!! I'm only losing about a pound a week and when I think of the crap I used to eat and the huge helpings, it's really strange that it only amounted to 500 extra and I was only gaining about 6 lbs a year???? Do you know what I mean??

Oh Bonny, I TOTALLY hear you! I've often thought that! I used to be the binge queen. I mean daily binges. Candy, muffins, donuts, you name it. Then we'd eat out every night for dinner and that usually meant a grilled cheese sandwich with French fries and everything dipped in ranch, or some burgers and fries, or big platters of Mexican food. And ice cream before bed. Seriously, I have no doubt as to WHY I was 300 pounds. I love to eat. But you would think that given the huge change in what I ate then, and what I eat now, I should have EASILY dropped 100 pounds in a couple of months. Instead, it took me almost a year. I will never understand why it's SO much easier to gain than to lose.
