Hi Guys

Ive been super busy at work. My boss' son is killing me with work overload. Miss you both. I told myself that I would get in here every morning Mon_ Fri at least to say Hi. Still not on plan here, but I'm trying to make good choices. Maybe when the weather warms up it will be easier. Have a great day Girls.

Red Lobster is so so good! And a lot of healthy choices too! Have a great time. I think it is going to be highs in the single digits here tomorrow

Spring? Spring? I think we are due for a couple inches of snow tomorrow! Actually it has been a mild winter, not 70, but in the 50's a lot.

Enjoy Red Lobster!

We went to Red Lobster yesterday and had the 4 course special. I ate the soup & Salad and a bisquit and brought the meal and desert home. It's a great deal for $14.99. If your RL is running that deal you should try to make it. It's enough food for two meals for sure! But it's a carb load. I've not gotten back on LC but still trying to watch quantity. I ordered the 17 day diet book but it has not come yet. Our RL is starting Lobster Fest now so it was the last day of the 4-course special but they said many RLs are running it till July. So GOOD! But I am sure I am probably up a couple of pounds from the soup and cheddar bisquit.....

I have been good using the treadmill pretty faithfully, but really not seeing any weight loss cause I'm still eating carbs I guess. It seems LC is all that really works. The 17 day things limits carbs and fats but seemed to be an OFF/ON deal. We'll see. Friends of mine here seem to really like it.

Hope you both have a great day

Hi Ladies! we sure don't talk like we used to. I miss you guys. I can't seem to stay on any kind of diet. I dont know why but this has stretched on for two years now. For 2 YEARS I've been carrying 20 extra pounds. (Well 35 really) but the last 20 came on fast and I never was able to get back down to even a half way reasonalbe weight. I used to go up and down, but there has been no "down" It is sad. Feeling sorry for myself again

Thanks Kris. DH don't want me to stay as strict low carb as I was so I thought I would try this. I really need to lose a few before shorts season.

I am so bad at staying with anything now. It is like it has gotten worse since I retired and I thought it would be the opposite of that. Maybe since I dont dress up anymore I am more lax?? So depressing......

I wish you the best luck!!!

Dinner was good. The salad was a refreshing change. So far so good. Ive got everything cut up and put in individual baggies so it will be easy to prepare tonight. I havent got on the scale yet, no need to really, I can tell I am up by the way my clothes fit. :/


I can't wait to retire!

Great Angie!! Sounds like a good plan.

I am back trying again today. We are investing in some life insurance and I have to get a physical and WEIGH in. Right now I am almost at the obese cutoff weight for the healthy rating. How embarrassing..... So we delayed our application until I can lose some weight. This is the highest I have even been. Cut off for "Standard Healthy" was 149 for my height. The next cutoff was 161 for obese. I was 159 the other day....... We have been eating out all the time this Winter. Fun, but just too many calories. I do get on the treadmill most days but it's not enough.

Well good luck to us all. I'm trying to be serious now.......

Hi ladies!
I am in the same boat, but giving LC a try starting today. ( We will see if I make it past lunch ) I won't be able to stay on LC long, but hoping to jump start things. I haven't weighed either, I DON"T want to know.

Other than weight, hope all is well with you both!

So much for the chicken and salad plan. My carpal tunnel is back worse than ever so DH just picked up a pizza. I've got to go see a doctor because it's starting to go numb all the way up my arm. *sigh*

I'm hoping a steroid shot will help. I have no time for surgery.

Phew, made it through the weekend, but did get some no-sugar-added ice cream. I have tried this so many times again without success, but for some reason, this time is working. I was around 171 when I started and was 164 this morning. I can't believe it. I know it is water weight, but I feel so much better. Other times when I tried LC, I gained weight. Oh, well, not gonna question, just try to keep moving on. I will switch over to WW probably later in the week however. This has been a nice jump start.

That is so great Diane! I am so happy to hear positive news. I started LC yesterday myself. Had fish, brocolli for dinner and egg, ham, cheese, for breakfast. No loss yet of course. I am trying to stick on LC for awhile and then maybe later try that 17 diet (I've ordred the book from Amazon). I almost just gave up and accepted being FAT.

I drove 3 hrs to Chicago to see a plastic surgeon Saturday (desperate!!) But actually the consult was not what I wanted to hear - I have lots of sun damage that there is no fix for that. He could do lipo and I'd look thin again, but he said thre is not much he can do for my upper arm which is what bothers me MORE THAN ANYTHING ElSE. Could remove the batwings, but that leaves quite a long scar and still does not remove the sun damaged area. I was very disappointed after our discussion. But life goes on. I'm going to give LC one more try and keep up with my walking and just hope for some weight loss at this point. Not going to do any surgery right now.

Good Luck and stay strong!!!!

Sorry to hear that the surgery consult didn't go as planned. However, I am sure you are fine just as you are We seem to be our own worst critics.

Good luck on LC. I can't believe it is working this time. I am either down a 1/2 or up a 1/2. I gained weight in the shower, must have been the hair conditioner. Anyway, been hanging in there. Seem to have lost all cravings. The only type of thing I have eaten with sugar is some no-sugar added ice cream. We went to the restaurant DD was working at last night, 1/2 price burger night, and she subbed me a salad for the fries and I ate the burger with no bun. As good as the bun looked, I can't believe I passed on it. I must be in the zone. About freaking time! I have lost so much in less that a week, I am sure it has to slow or stop. Just hope that doesn't un-motivate me.

Angie, how is the hand doing?

So glad to hear that good news Diane! Keep up the good work. How long did it take you to lose the cravings?? I messed up again last night. Only made it 2 days LC and caved on some tortilla chips at the mex restaurant. I went there with good intentions - but failed again as usual.......

Good morning,

Woohoo Congrats on your loss Diane. Proud of you for not eating the bun. Ive got to get back on a plan. I got on the scale...ugh 154. *sigh* I could not believe it.

Carpel tunnel is bad. Hand is numb most of the time, so I've been laying low on the computer. Therapy is working..slow but sure.

Hi Angie, Sorry to hear the hand is giving you such a fit. I only had that a little tiny bit but I have heard it is really painful. I hope the therapy helps. It sounds awful.

I am back on track today, but with the mess up yesterday it's like I didn't even start yet. I get so mad at myself. Why can't we stick with it!! Hopefully we can take a lesson from Diane. I am glad we are all trying again. I go thru periods where I just give up and say "why bother, I'm old anyway". But I want to do it for my health now too.

Yikes Angie,
I hope you get the hand taken care of soon. Will a shot help?

So far, so good... Keeping on LC even though I seem to be maintaining for a couple of days at 164. Never thought I would be happy to see 164, but after being around 171, it is a blessing. Not sure how I got back into this shape. Oh well, cravings have disappeared, so I think that is half the battle.
