Are you talking about a scale intervention?? Where will I go for rehab??

I have been known to throw a few egg only days in there. Never for as long as a week though. Can't do that right now as the hens are taking a break from egg laying. I pretty much do all meat on DD's right now though. Might try that again in a couple of weeks as I put a light in the henhouse tonight so they should start laying again.

I felt like this was the only safe place to talk about the number on the scale. I haven't, and won't, post anything on Facebook about diet or exercise. I talk about running, and riding, but not my specific weight loss and fitness goals. Too many people want "you" to fail and I don't want to answer questions about my WOE. Too many people get snotty IRL when I've talked about it - I can count on 2 hands the number of people I have told the truth - no way I'm putting it out there in Facebook land!
Having said that, hubby came home from the gym and announced his weight. I finally felt encouraged enough to tell him that his weight on that day was 4# LESS than my starting weight. I'm at a point now where I don't care if he knows the number. But no one else does!!!

I have done all bacon days, and all HB egg days and loved them both. I haven't done it for any extended period, and just on DDs. But they usually do result in a nice whoosh. Good luck! I've been curious about the meat and egg diet at times.

Here I feel safe, although I have to remind myself that there are a lot of lurkers who never post, not just my JBs. No way I'd post anything about my weight on FB! Only a couple of my closest friends even remotely know how much I've lost and where I started. People could take a guess of course.

I've posted my before and after pictures on FB and never thought twice about it, but maybe thats because I'm a guy, I'm not sure. I hated how I looked before, but again that never stopped me from posting pictures of myself and now that I achieved something that seemed impossible I wanted to record that for all time on what is essentially a running blog of my life.

But at work it has started to get annoying, that some people seem to think it is ok to tell every person that comes to the office "this is Mike and he lost soooo much weight". They have actually introduced me to people this way! Complete strangers there to do group training, new employees. I'm ok with congratulations for my achievement, but my excess weight didn't define who I was and my weight loss does not define who I am right now. Sometimes I think it would be nice to switch jobs and have everyone just assume this is how I have always been and not have it be a subject of conversation. The same people who constantly bring it up, also constantly seek advice for their own weight loss, but never take the advice or say no that would be too hard and never actually try. So maybe that is where the constant reminders come from, from their own issues. But it is still annoying!

to both of you.

I recently posted a photo on Facebook after much encouragement from friends. I typically post photos and most people aren't looking for the weight loss so they wouldn't know or could care less. For me I hate putting myself out there and listening to the opinions of other people. I swear all my FBF who are losing weight through whatever program are constantly talking about it and sometimes I think "We get it. You hated your body and now you love it. Not everyone wants to do what you did."

I believe we all "out" ourselves when we're ready and that's the way it should be.

I find this forum so much safer and yes I know there are people lurking who don't post, but without all of you I would have most likely given up the first time I dropped a pants size and no one noticed. Coming here to talk about my losses and annoying stalls as well as any and everything else has been the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.

Thanks for the input on the meat and eggs ladies. I was NOT happy with today's weigh-in after a very low DD (I'm blaming too much sodium) so I think I will give it a try next week.

i am sure people are very impressed with your weight loss, Mike, as they should be!! but i can totally imagine how being introduced like that would be extremely annoying. weight loss is extremely important to all of us, but, like you said.... it isn't what defines us.

That is true, Colleen! Sometimes I feel like I'm not who I'm supposed to be, because of my excess weight, and I feel like I'm perceived as a different person because of it too. Especially when I was 200+ lbs. It's difficult to get beyond appearances, for ourselves, and for others, I think.

I did post (like I said) that I had lost 20 lbs (a while back!), but I didn't say my weight, and I haven't posted a full body shot on FB ever lol.

I totally agree! I did not have confidence in myself when I was heavy and I'm not sure if others did or at least not as much as I think they do now. I could be wrong about others or it could be that I exude more confidence now and that has effected others more than the weight loss, but I think appearances do effect how we receive others.

Carly, I'm with you...I my JB's., I know I couldn't have lost what I have on my own. It was with the help of all here I did.

Very interesting chats going on here and I'm glad to see 'em. I'll have to try some of the suggestions...vaporub on the feet...may it help the o'nite sinuses. Someone suggested an essential oil of "eucalyptus blue" which I tried before remembering I'm allergic to the pollens...a couple of days later I'm in bed running fevers and the sinuses running wild.

I'm not on FB but am being pushed to do so by friends and family, so am very interested in your comments there.

Oh, yeah, since I'm getting back to attacking my last 30 pounds, really appreciate the comments on the all meat/eggs for down days. What do you eat to keep the calories down. And any suggestions on "eating up" to UD calories. I can't seem to hit the marks...tried yesterday and just couldn't eat that much. Oh, I don't eat before noon, so I'm having 17 hours fasting almost every day.

I may be a lurker most of the time, but I really appreciate your comments, so keep 'em coming... to all y'all.

Cindy and Carly, I agree with these sentiments. I do think people perceive heavy people differently (not as smart, not as dedicated, not as capable), but I also think other react to how we present ourselves. When we are heavy we kind of shrink into the background and try not to attract a lot of attention. When we feel better about ourselves, we are more assertive, speak out more freely, etc. We just exude more confidence in ourselves, and so people have more confidence in us. Vicious cycle, in a good way when this happens.

Mary, you just lurk all you want. I love it when you post and let us know what's up with you though. Great to see you around more lately!

My confidence game has definitely improved since losing the weight. My managers take me more seriously and I am more willing to take on bigger more prominent roles on the projects. The part I still need to work on is my personal confidence outside of work, I'm still a shy fat guy on the inside in most social situations. I'm trying to put myself into more social situations to overcome that and build a social circle outside of work, but I still find myself looking for excuses to opt out of things or choosing not to join. This group helps, I find myself opening up more and trying to participate more, so hopefully I can eventually bring that to real world situations.

I was painfully shy as a child and I wasn't fat then. I gained the weight after I started having kids.

As I got older the light came on and I no longer let my size dictate how I felt about myself. I love myself no matter what. I got tired of hauling around all that extra weight and finally got serious for my health.

I really think that people pick up on our low self esteem and treat us accordingly no matter what our size. If we think we are not good enough so will others.

This has been my experience in both directions.

I'm shy is some respects and also cautious. I don't open up to everyone and anyone, but people I know, like and trust I enjoy being with.

Such good conversations going on here!

So, I've been awake since 3:00 this morning. I tried to get back to sleep for awhile, read for about an hour, tried to sleep again, and finally gave up a little after 5:00. I was just lying there feeling alert and energetic, so I got up, got myself put together, and started my day. I've been so productive this morning (it's now noon) and have felt so full of zoom and energy. I've felt the DD mental clarity and energy before, but this is ridiculous!

Talked to my mom on the phone earlier and she said I'm talking fast and cracking jokes like there's no tomorrow. What's going on? I'm starting to feel a little like I'm fading, which is not surprising on less than 4 hours of sleep. Luckily, I can take a nap today and I plan to do just that.

I'd love to feel this level of energy and focus every day. I said "DAY" not middle of the night, thank you very much.

Ramble over. You'll just have to bear with me today.

I've never seen myself as shy, but it has come to my attention that I'm a very guarded person. Thinking about that I believe my weight has already made me hyper-vigilant and I'm constantly expecting people to make comments that I have to pretend do not bother me.

i had always been a very confident person, but i noticed that starting to change as i got bigger and bigger. a mixture of hypothyroid, getting older and having a baby at an older age really did me in weight wise. i hate that my confidence is linked to my personal appearance. it shouldn't be, but a big part of it definitely is. i also REALLY dislike how people perceive others when they are over weight. we are just as smart, capable, loving, and AMAZING no matter what weight we are.

we just need to truly believe it. than perhaps others will too.

Got my pterostilbene in the mail yesterday and took my first dose this morning. I'm excited to see what effect it will have, I'd love to have the extra energy some of you report. Seems like I'm always tired.

Got mine yesterday, too! Gonna try it out this morning. Are you going to start out with 50mg or jump right in to a higher dosage?

I did just that, Lisa! A lovely, 2 hour, Saturday afternoon nap. And I slept great last night so I think I'm back on schedule now.

I would consider myself guarded as well. I don't immediately open up to people I don't know well. I was a shy child too. Had to get over that for my job. Or should I say, I've had to fake not being shy, because I'm still not a natural social butterfly.

Hi Everyone. Hope all are having a good Sunday.

I've decided to tackle a leaky kitchen faucet myself. Bf has said to call a plumber, but it seems so ridiculous when it should be a simple task. The main thing that is a hassle is turning off the water. For some reason, when my house was built (2005), they didn't install shut-off valves under the sinks. I cannot for the life of me understand why, except maybe it took a little more effort and money. Anyone have a clue whether there would be a shut-off valve somewhere else, other than the main water line at the meter?

Me too, Carol!

people see me as very out going, and i guess i am, but if they would take the time to step back and look at the situation.... they would see that i very seldom say ANYTHING about myself. i am the queen of questions. get people talking about themselves and you never have to worry about spilling your own secrets i have a select handful (2???) people who i confide with. everyone else gets redirected and once again, they find the conversation is all about them!

I read that. How do you follow a pipe from under the kitchen sink? Also, I don't have a basement.
