Exactly that. Try not to eat by the clock. Eat by what you need and only if you feel hungry. There's no rule you have to eat at noon and dinner time. If you feel "obligated" to eat then have something light, especially if you're not hungry. Right now the calories are not an issue and you won't likely have too many 900 calorie days! Enjoy that glorious feeling of being full without adding unnecessary carbs AND calories!! It's all good!

can I join?

Hello everyone I'm afraid I'm back starting all over this year. I had reached my goal last year in July only to have my little girl die a sudden tragic death on 9-11-13 and my husband killed himself on Christmas Eve in front of me and our two yr old. Somehow I've been eating to comfort myself, (didn't help) and I find myself back here starting induction all over.
I remember a few of you, Dairy Queen and MotherGoose...hello to you, old friends. I hope I can join you all and take this weight back off.
I can use all the support and encouragement I can get.

Starting at 207.8
July Goal: 197
7-1: 204.8 (love those huge losses in the first week, I know this wont last, sigh)

Hi - I'm Sheri and this is my first post, although I've been lurking for awhile. My July goal is to finish Atkins induction (20 carbs - 1992 version).

I'm currently on Day 7. Previously I've never gotten past day 4. So my goal is to finish out the 2 weeks and then step up 5 carbs/week.

I've actually been on Atkins for 6 months but had to start at 50 carbs and then gradually decrease carbs per my endocrinologist. Due to thyroid, diabetes, etc complications. I'm super excited to have gotten so far already now on induction! He actually told me not to go below 25 carbs but I'm doing ok so far.

This is a great forum and reading the threads has been a real source of inspiration, thank you!

Just made some low carb pulled pork in the slow cooker. Definitely not as good as regular, and the meat is NOT tender for some reason. Oh well. Glad the meat was on sale. It's edible.

Had an omelet this morning with chorizo sausage, tuna salad for lunch. Stayed on plan. First day's easy!

Kizzy, I don't even know what to say and can't imagine the tragedies you've endured. Given all the vices you could have turned to, I think you should be proud of yourself for just turning to food. I'm glad you're ready to regain your health and we are definitely here for you.

Welcome to all our new joiners! Always awesome to see new faces!

Lilac, how is low carb pulled pork different than regular pulled pork? I've never made pulled pork, but I didn't realize that some would be not low carb.

Back in July.
My scale has still been bouncing around and I only lost 3 pounds last month. I ended up having a completely off scale binge for two days before getting back on the wagon. I have still been going to the gym 3 days a week and at least I didn't lose it completely.
Glad to see old faces. Kizz I have no words to express my sympathy. You are strong and I know this group work be here for anything you need.

Congratulations to those who are still working hard.

July 1 155.8
July 2 153.4 Thanks to magnesium citrate back to where I was weeks ago.

Pulled pork

For my pulled pork- I use a boston butt (pork shoulder)...season with salt and pepper, garlic powder, paprika....put the pork in the crockpot on a bed of sliced onions....I do mine on high for several hours.....then I put a low carb bbq sauce (Kraft Light)....if it is able to be pulled apart in smaller sections, I do that and turn it down to low till your ready to eat!

Thank you everyone, for your kind words. I forgot how awesome the first week or two of induction is!!! The scale moves so fast. I know this will not last however, it is very motivational. Last year I was averaging only a lb a week.....very frustrating.

Stocked my kitchen yesterday, got rid of any temptations. For me what works is having things ready and on hand. That means deviled eggs, mimi cheesecakes, oopsi rolls, tuna and chicken salad made, and my half scoop Bryers low carb choc. Ice cream already measured out into little bowls. Otherwise I might just dig in and get a little more then one serving...you know how that goes?! So this is how I succeeded last year when I lost the weight. I had to plan ahead. Also a favorite of mine is Blue Diamond brand bold habanero BBQ almonds. I know they say no nuts on Induction, but I kind of do a low carb twist off of Adkins. It has never hurt my weight loss (almonds and pecans). I grill out a package of turkey burgers and have those on hand as well.


Start: 207.8

July Goal: 197
7-1: 204.8

Yeah, Bonnie, I'm probably being pretty aggressive with that goal. But, I'm never overly concerned when I don't meet a goal, I set it, I try my best, and if I fail I simply tell myself I tried my best.

With that said...I may need to readjust because I seem to be going the wrong direction...LOL:

July 1 - 190.8
July 2 - 191.2

Happy Hump Day Everyone - today's advice - Don't sweat the petty things and definitely don't pet the sweaty things.

Carpe Diem

Bonny, wow! Off to a great start for the month! Are you eating dinner at all? Or just eating a lighter dinner? That obviously works well for you.

Kizz, planning ahead is key and you seem to have a good grip on that!

Mister, Nice Whoosh!!!

Shrinking, Bacon and eggs and steak are the staples of my diet. Definitely can't go wrong there.

Lilac, got it! LOL I do sometimes throw a pork or beef roast in the crockpot and then I just eat it with some cheese on it, but for the BF I add some Guys Sugar Free BBQ Sauce and he likes that for a change of pace.

Bonny-Jean, wholey moley batman! Your loss is amazing . I love your idea about switching the meals. I'm so thrilled for you.

Lilac and ejw55 - the suggestions on the pork roast are great. I think I"ll pick one up tonight and try a dry rub. Great idea with the crock pot. Less heat in the house.

Mistermirror - Congrats on the woosh.

Candypickletoes - ewwww! yuck. petting sweaty things.... haha ha

To the rest of yinz....keep up the great work, if it doesn't show it will soon.

Well, thank you so much but I'll probably sit there for 7-9 days. Then 6-8 weeks to get out of the 150's. I lose very slowly for some reason but I'm happy it's still going downward. Thanks again.

Thank you Lilac, your pulled pork sounds yummy!

Mothergoose: Look how skinny you are!!! Wow! I remember when you had a long way to go! Good for you, and thank you.....my father wanted me sedated it bothered everyone to hear me wail the first day of my daughters death. I refused. Everyone's grief is different. I'm afraid I couldn't stop screaming/crying if I had wanted to. Which I did not. Then a few months later on Christmas eve when my husband took a shotgun and did what he did in front of us, well, I was too shell shocked to scream or cry
So, yes tempting as it was, I did not turn to any vices or allow them to put me on any sort of meds. I did take Benadryl to help me sleep the first week or so....anyway you're right, I shouldn't beat myself up too bad that I turned to food and undid a years worth of work.

ejw55-Thanks for the kind words, congrats on your loss!

DQ-Im sorry I made you cry. Thank you, Ive always loved your support and encouragement (plus all the cool stuff you eat and drink in the big city, lol)

mountain: People have been saying Im strong through this, but I really have had no choice. Ive been trying to come through these tragedies without the support of my family or his. I lost my home due to the violent nature of my husbands suicide. I had to clean up after the act by myself, and pack my daughters room which was very hard to do, also remove christmas presents which sat wrapped and never opened, and stockings stuffed all a few feet away from things you would never dream to see next to a Christmas tree...I could not stay there any longer. I only have the strength to go on because of my darling little boy who is 2 1/2 now.He is the most beautiful light I have ever seen, and I know he was given to me so late in life to save me from the events that were to take place. I could not, would not be here if not for him. My son knows nothing, remembers nothing of that night and still asks when Daddy is coming home. So you say I have courage, I say I wasnt given a choice. Thank you for your kind words and congrats on your losses

Crookedsmile: Thanks for your prayers. When you talk to God, mention Kendra, in case he doesnt know my handle....and thank you!

Had a good day so far, Im not sure if were doing food journals anymore, but we used to and I like it, because it gave me ideas and I could try to "copy" people getting nice losses...lol
so:

Breakfast: Two egg omelette with salsa and sour cream

Lunch: Two plain turkey burgers

Snack: Fat bombs

Dinner: Chicken salad with mock mashed potatoes (cauliflower) Breyers choc. ice cream with crunched up almonds on top

snack:fat bomb

drowning myself in crystal lite and cant stop peeeeeeeeing!

You ever just go along thinking nothing in particular then realize you in the middle of a week and it’s a new month. That just happened so I figured I would catch up.
I reviewed my last months and found…..
June -
Fail 1. Weigh in every Saturday
Fail 2. Weight 165 or less
Fail 3. Complete my weight training every week (2 days)
Passed 4. Do one day of cardio minimum a week
Fail 5. Complete a six day stretch including that core workout class I have been wanting to try out but have not gotten to yet.
Fail 6. If I feel like cheating, eat more of the acceptable foods not something I know better not to eat.
and Fail 7. Get new tires on my motorcycle and find a way to actually ride it some this year.

This month I am switching it up a bit for a while, after my hike. The food I eat on it would not work induction level.
July
1. Go into induction level starting July 12th
2. Stay at induction level the remainder of the month
3. Clime Pikes Peak
4. Work out no less than 4X a week
5. Have a healthy nephew born with no complications.
Ii got to try a new class last night called body pump. I did everything all the way through except one oblique exercise. Abs suck for me right now, but soon that will be easy peasy.

Fatfreddy If I knew you were in Colorado Springs I could have met you for lunch!
Kizz4k – Holly crap! I am sorry you had to go through that. I can’t imagine the mental issues you are dealing with right now.

Plan for today, nothing special, Aqua Pilates tonight.

Kizz/Kendra, although there's no way possible to compare my previous run of suck to yours - believe me I understand. I self-medicated with food starting with my miscarriage, stepped it up when my mom passed, and let it spiral completely out of control when DH was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I'm fairly religious and have to admit there was a period of time there (and sorry in advance if this offends anyone) when I basically gave God the middle finger. And often. Got so tired of hearing stuff like "He doesn't give you more than you can handle". The heck He doesn't. Anyway, I made good with The Man Upstairs and stopped the madness of emotional eating a little before re-gaining the 105 lbs I had worked so hard to lose in 2011 and came back to LCF with my tail between my legs. I've lost about 25 lbs so far and have 50+ more until goal.

I've realized that I have self-medicated with food for pretty much my entire adult life (I'm 45). Stress, sadness, anger, loss of control... any one of those can trigger a binge in me like nothing else. I've done the weight loss thing once, I can do it again - not worried about that. But if I don't change those behaviors then it'll all just be a waste of time. Again. And I'm getting too old for that hamster wheel.

There's no magic band-aid for what you've gone through. I wish there was, I'd surely Fed-Ex it to you in bulk if there was. It's okay to grieve, mourn, cry, rage, question, etc... those are major scabs that can't possibly heal any time soon. We're definitely here for you. Maybe getting a handle on your eating is the slim bit of control you can have over your life - I know it is for mine. Thanks for indulging my babbling.

Kimber - you are SO close to 60 lbs gone, girl! So proud of you! And pulled pork is definitely something I turned my nose up at for a long time before my boss brought some in and gave me his recipe. The few times I made it his way, it was delicious. This recipe I tried sounded promising, but the end result was weird tasting and had a weird texture. Not to mention I accidentally put the fat layer DOWN instead of UP and that's why it came out tough and dry. I threw it out this morning - could not bring myself to eat any more of it.

Hamburger patties tonight with fried eggs on top! Yum!

I haven't been on the board in several years. Needless to say, in the long run I ended up back where I started. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and typically eat low carb in a constant effort to maintain. Losing has been almost impossible since I was diagnosed with Hashi's. However...I have only myself to blame for putting the pounds back on. I have been working tons of overtime (typically 12 hour days) for several months. I simply haven't had the energy to deal with work and take care of myself.

To add insult to injury, I tend to be an all or nothing type of person. Moderation has never been my strong point. Now that I am within a few pounds of my heaviest weight, I am making a conscious choice to stop the madness. I started a 90 day weight loss challenge at work in order to have some accountability and support. In an effort to increase everyone's motivation, I added the option of a cash pool. There is now a $400 cash pot. The person with the highest % of body fat lost wins the cash. I honestly don't care about the money, but figure it will amp up the motivation. Hopefully, that will lead to everyone being a winner! We start on July 4th.

I figured I would jump back on the boards and hold myself even more accountable. I appreciate the added support and encouragement. Low carb isn't new to me, but knowing how to eat right and actually doing it are two different things.

I am truly a food addict. Low carb is the only method I have ever found successful in taming the beast. If I eat carbs, I spend every hour of every day contemplating my next meal. Physical hunger is irrelevant. It is the mental nagging hunger that is never ending. My brain literally obsesses over anything that looks good, sounds good or smells good. I can be stuffed to the brim after lunch, and still be contemplating what I am going to have for dinner. It is difficult to explain. I am not a binge eater. I don't eat ridiculous quantities of food. I just can't turn off the obsessive thoughts. Low carb can. After a couple of weeks low carbing, the obsessions stop. The constant physical AND mental hunger stop. Then there is the moment I hear the angels sing and wonder....for a minute...if this is what "normal" people feel like. Bring on the angels!!!
