Hope everyones weekend was great! I didn't weigh this morning, will try to keep off scale until friday- only 5 days away. I did a planned cheat this weekend, mostly ate chips and salsa of all things! figured i could probably benefit from a mini-induction-like shock.

Stick to plan ladies, lets see some losses on Friday!

If people in office didn't bring in stuff - I'd do sooo much better. I am ready to give up - not getting that willpower vibe - sucks.......

me either Cheryl. Someone brought us raspberry ice cream shortcake yesterday. If I was where I was at a couple weeks ago, I would have said no, but my willpower right now sucks.

I had a very interesting morning. Got to work, put in my backup tape, got ready to start my morning, sat down, the air conditioner kicked on and I felt like I was going to sneeze, my nose started running(I thought), so reached over and got a tissue, and looked down at my keyboard and blood ran all down the front of me, and of course I picked today of all days to have on a white lace top. Grr.... I could not get my nose to stop bleeding. Never had that happen before. I tried for over 10 minutes, then grabbed some tissues, went next door and am sure I looked awful with the blood all over me, but told the girl in the office next door to let my boss know I would be back. I was just going to go home and change clothes thinking it would stop eventually. I got to the parking lot and our Controller was walking in, and made me go to the ER. So....long story short, they cauterized the membrane in my nose on the right side, but the bleeding seems to be coming from the back of my nose too, sooo...he said this may just be a temporary fix and I need to see the ENT in our area. I have never had my nose cauterized before, but let me tell you it does NOT feel good. My nose is still burning and running like water now, but at least is not bleeding. I had to go home and change clothes before I could come back and I live 30 minutes away. SO have had an eventful morning. I also now have a terrible headache and am just ready to go home.

I should have, the ER doc said he would give me a note, but stupid me, I came back to work and now I'm miserable. It's almost like I have the worst hay fever ever, eyes watering, nose running like water, and terrible headache. Want to go home so bad but don't want to seem like a baby either. I have tissue shoved up the right side of my nose so it won't keep running. I'm a sight, let me tell ya. My head is hurting so bad it feels like the skin is sliding off my skull.

Okay - got on scale and I am stille exactly the same so I am going to attempt this again starting today and hopefully be down a few by Friday to raise my spirits and my willpower.

Driving home from my spin class last night, I started thinking how I have accomplished many hurdles in my life, how come I can't just do this????? I have had the stamina to raise two girls all on my own with no support whatsoever, endure a job that pays well but the owner's son is a real mean jerk, keep and maintain a house all on my own so WHY CAN'T I STOP EATING?????

Just venting, girls............

just checking in. Still not feeling well. Was out with a migraine yesterday, lost peripheral vision in my right eye for a while, was told this is an ocular migraine, but freaked me out. Still feeling kinda blah today, nose feels like it has been broke it is so sore. Head still hurts, but not near as bad as yesterday. Just kinda feelin like I've been run over by a truck. So, needless to say, not really eating right, but not really eating much either. My appetite has been severely dampened by this, which I guess is a good thing, but wish I felt better. Hope all is well.

Cheryl, I can relate! There are many things in life I have done, but cannot seem to lick this one thing. I think it is because when faced with the many hard things in life, the ones you mentioned are the things you 'have' to overcome, you have to do the things you mentioned or you don't thrive. Food is not optional, you have to eat, so there are always going to be options you shouldn't do, but can if you choose to take the wrong things....which I do, as we all do!.... KWIM?

I was thinking of you today, Tasha - sorry you are still feeling yucky

I always start out with good intentions but if someone brings stuff in office - for example, boss's wife just brought in a plate of fresh ITALIAN COOKIES -
and left them in break room. On Monday, she brought in a box of Godiva Chocolates -

I love her dearly but she is like a size 2 and is really careful what she eats - so why bring it here???????????

I have been back and forth about the HCG drops, but I think I am going to try a 15 day trial and see how it goes.

what are they supposed to do Cheryl? Guess I'm out of the loop, haven't heard of HCG drops.

I'm feeling a little better every day, so hoping by Monday I'm back to myself almost. Tired, face is sore, just kinda blah.

I've talked myself into making my menus tomorrow, going to the grocery store and getting prepared again to do induction come Monday. Come on Cheryl, do this with me! I have exactly 2 months before we go to Florida and although where we are going isn't very populated, I sure don't want to be mistaken for a beached whale by my family should they venture to the beach! Would like to be down at least 20 pounds by then, and I know it is more than possible!

If you guys weigh in today, I'll try to get the chart posted by this afternoon before I leave. If not, I'll post it Monday.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I am not weighing in today - feeling all bloated and yuck!! I know if I see a gain, it will make me miserable.

Tasha - you are ON!!! I also have summer plans and would not like to feel like Shamu again - Tampa in June, got a condo right on beach in St Augustine in August, probably take a trip home to New York in September - wouldn't it be fabulous not to have this huge gut

yes, it def would be great!!! My daughter made the comment the other day that she didn't understand women that have the hangover stomach, what caused it. I said well, a number of things, having kids stretches out your muscles and skin, and then adding 75-80 pounds onto that and it doesn't have anywhere to go but out and down. Sure hope she never has to see that on herself! She is thin, but pays a bit of a price for it unfortunately....she has an eating disorder. Not as bad as it used to be, but she still has issues with it.

Hate my gut and so want it to be on it's way! I would even settle at this point for half it's size!!! Also this second tire I've seemed to accumulate in the last 10 years under my boobs and on top of my waist....where the devil did that come from?

I'm going to be ready to go on Monday morning! Let's do this!!!

I weighed in at 156....very happy!!! Seems like I was going to stall there for a while. I switched things up a bit with carb cycling and that seems to have worked!

Keep up the good work ladies...dont get discouraged! You can do it!!!!

Hi all...

Cheryl you in?

Today is my day 1.....thinking of doing meat/eggs for the first week, and then following induction for the 2nd.

I made deviled eggs last night LOVE LOVE LOVE deviled eggs.

Today's menu:

B: 1 deviled egg half
L: 2 deviled egg halves was in a hurry and had no $$
D: heroin chicken wings (maybe, depends on how tired I am, may be an omelet)

Hope everyone has a great day, I've had no water today, so will have to work on that when I get home.

My nose is no longer sore, but scab is still covering all of inside of my nose, which I found out last night will be there for almost a month. TMI, I know, sorry. Hopefully this will stop my nosebleeds, at least on that side!

Everyone check in, let's hear what you're eating/doing/drinking

Hi Cheryl! I'm on day 2.

Yesterday when I got home, I got really hungry. I had 2 deviled egg halves, then I made the Heroin Chicken wings....man are they good! Had 2 wings plus maybe 3/4 cup spinach, was full. I didnt' get any water in though I wish I liked water more than I do.

Today is a pickle..... I was going home and eat leftover chicken and deviled eggs, but my Dad called and my brother is in from Colorado and he is wanting everyone to come to his house for Chili tonight. Yay rah. I don't eat chili. SO.... thinking maybe I will eat before we go and plead a stomach ache. Would rather do that than listen to them complain about my diet. Get tired of listening to it.

Anyway...

Today's menu:

B: 1 deviled egg half
L: 2 deviled egg halves....I know, I'm addicted to them when I make them
D: heroin chicken wings, deviled eggs

Was so mad at myself when I weighed yesterday morning only 5 pounds from where I started and I had lost 17 pounds.... oh well, no looking back....

Hey, Tasha!

I know when you do anything social, it is a pain! Oh, you can have just one piece of bread, or cake, etc.

I am struggling so much with this I could scream!!

grr.... I was sitting here talking to my boss and my &#*@&^$ nose started bleeding again. Dang it. Has almost stopped, have tissue stuffed up my nostril. I called the ENT that the Emergency doctor told me to see if it started bleeding again and they said I have to have a referral. WTH? My insurance doesn't require a referral, so not sure why? So, called my primary care physician to get a referral and they are the worlds worst about calling back for anything, doesn't matter what. So not sure what to do now Guess I'll leave the TP shoved up my nose.

ok....it's Thursday. I'm still eating crap. what is with me. I keep justifying it every day saying to myself....one more day won't hurt. Then it's the next day and I say, One more day won't hurt. Then it's the next week, and now it's been months. Really getting frustrated with myself because I can't seem to stick with this. I have now less than 2 months before we go to Florida and I did not want to go looking like I do. I am not comfortable fully dressed, let alone a swimsuit. what is this?

I have investigated this a little and am a little leary of them. There are so many people that are taking them but from what I can tell, all they help do is fertility to get pregnant. Am I missing something?

Yes - I agree it is a little scary and if it doesn't appeal to me - I will stop -
But there is something about that hormone that is helping people lose weight?
