Hey All,

I have been on the longest stall ever! So discouraging but finally, after what almost 2 months of stall the scale finally went down, a little. Weighed in at 186.6, better then nothing.

I didn't lose anything this week - I didn't expect to actually - not sure where the road is going to lead.

I put on my jeans today (capris) and was so uncomfortable with my big gut - I am like - why can't I stop the insanity?

That reminds me - remember that woman with really short platinum blond hair who used to be on the infomercial - STOP THE INSANITY!!

I didn't even weigh this morning, partly because I forgot, but I think I forgot because I'm so discouraged. I havent' eaten anything today, so guess today is as good as any to start induction. I haven't prepared, but have to start sometime. I will grab a salad from the cafe for lunch and maybe I can talk hubby in to getting steak for supper

me too Chery., I was going to wear my jean capris because today is Friday, but hated the muffin that hung over the sides, so put on my dress capris because they are looser and more comfortable. Of course, the obligatory large cardigan over my clothes, not only because it is chilly today, but to hide all that ails me

Great Job Patty!!!

I will make May's chart if I have the chance today, if not, it may be Monday. We are short a worker now until our new hire starts in two weeks, so things will be a little insane.

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.
Oh my, just read this. Are you all healed? I hope so!

not really. My nose still is bleeding in varying stages every day. I can't get my primary care physician's office to send a referral to the ENT, so not sure what to do short of having to go to both physician's offices and pay two office visits. Stupid. I hate my PCP's office staff, you cannot get them to do anything, nothing, ever when you call and request something like this. Ridiculous and very aggrivating.

I'm very behind on a lot of my things I should be keeping up with, like my yearly PAP, mammogram, supposed to have a colonoscopy done every 5 years because of history of polyps....haven't done any of that since 2006. I went then to have all this done and ended up having one procedure after another that year, ended up going to the doctor almost every week for call backs as I call them, and if I wasn't at the doctor's office, was having a procedure or surgery. I got really burnt out going to the doctors office, then in 2008 had to have hemorrhoid surgery, the old fashioned hurt like the devil for weeks on end kind and again, got burnt out going to the dr's office, and haven't gone back since except for little things like sinus. I know I need to go, but keep putting it off because i know there are things wrong that they will want to fix and I don't wanna My Mother in law always told me that she doesn't go to the doctor unless she is just sick with bronchitis or something like that because they will always find something wrong with you, and I believe it!

ok ladies.... posted the chart for April and have started May's.

I'm very disgusted with myself

BUT....onward right?

Missed breakfast this morning, not feeling the best in the world, have the head cold stuff goin on, lots of congestion, eyes watering, sneezing, achy, you name it...I got it. Me and dh both.

Making myself count my change and go get a salad for lunch. I haven't had one in a very long while, and not sure what I will have for supper, but am on induction this week, may just fix me an omelet or something, not up for making a big meal.

How's everyone doing this beginning week of May?

I didn't do so well last night. I don't feel good and didn't feel like messing with food last night, so I ate what dh fixed for supper. Kudos to him for even fixing supper because we are both sick as dogs. he's going to the doctor at 1:30, but I can't go because I'm in the middle of monthend at work....they have me chained to my chair. I'm the kinda sick where I want my Mom. Can't breath, can't smell, can't taste, hurt all over, eyes watering, throat hurts. Not good. Hopefully I will be better tomorrow!

I was doing really well, then had the nosebleed thing, I never could get a referral from my PCP to go see the local ENT, so nothing ever happened with that. Am surprised really as much as I have been blowing my nose that it hasn't bled any. Maybe I should knock on wood or something. What I have now is I believe what my granddaughter had last week. She was really sick and still not 100%. They told my daughter she had strep, but her strep test was negative, so not sure what was up with that, but anyway.....reminds me of a bad summer cold. Have been running fever off and on all day and can't leave. It sucks to be sick and not be able to stay home in bed.

monthend sucks too LOL I'm in a lovely mood, can you tell?

not sure if this will help, but I saw a thing on pinterest last night that said, "If you are tired of starting over again, stop giving up!" really really really applied to me!

well, still sick. even though I am in the middle of monthend, I think I am going to see if I can get an appointment at the dr's office, even if I have to go to the urgent care. Can't do this anymore. My eyes watered all the way to work this morning, could barely drive and see the road for wiping my eyes. This just really sucks, I hate being sick. hate it hate it hate it!

I did get on the scale this morning before getting in the shower. I was down 2.5 pounds. Not by trying I assure you, not sure what happened there, but is a little anyway!

well, it looks like our thread is dying. This is supposed to go until the end of June....should we continue with it?

On the positive side....I'm feeling a little better now, at least human. My head is still pretty congested, but I can breathe and don't hurt all over anymore, fever is gone....just wish I could get rid of the sinus pain and pressure, then I'd be perfect.

Planning on getting induction going again on Monday morning. Have to get some food and be prepared. We will have snickerdoodle this Saturday night, so won't get much accomplished other than placating her since we know it is our job to really spoil her.. Thinking Mommy and Daddy would disagree with us....but umm.... we doesn't care LOL

I weighed in this morning at 215.5. Ready to start losing, just have to get in my mode again to get there!!!

i'm still here too!!! i've been stalking last few days- haven't paid attention to food with everything going on right now, and vacation coming up. Not junking out, but definitely over an acceptable carb count.

Cheryl- good luck with the drops!!! I loooooooved the 1st 2 days to the point of hating them (its a thin line, yanno? ) but i definitely haven't been able to finish a full round. even 3 weeks is just too much for me- so you go get 'em!!! but i would say- weigh daily... at least every other day.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

what do they do that you have a love/hate relationship with them and can't finish a full round?

good morning everyone!

again with the Day 1 thing

Today's menu:

B: eggs/2 pc bacon
L: salad(lettuce,ranch,bacon,boiled egg,cucumber,tomato(1 grape tomato, chopped)
D: ??

have been toying with the idea of not eating after I get home. Would there be any bad ramifications from this? Just know that my problem seems to come when I get home, so if I know I'm not eating anything after getting there, it kinda cuts out the daily question of what to have for supper. Don't think that will completely solve my issue I have with my time spent at home, such as what to do on the weekends....

hey, all!

I am back from a great weekend in Orlando -

This hcg diet is very hard - only 500 calories a day and very limited.

First two days, you eat what you want (which was Sat and Sun), then started 500 calories a day on Mon and it has been pretty rough.

My plan is to get on scale Friday and will re-join you guys!!!

Tasha - that is how I lost my weight 1st time around with Atkins - no dinner!

hi all....I'm almost back where I started I weighed this morning and was back up to 218.

Dh and I had a little talk last night and I told him what a hard time I am having with this and how sick I am of being everybody's fat friend, and I'm always the heaviest one everywhere we go, just tired of it. Tired of not feeling good, no energy...blah blah blah. Anyway... he is going to start helping me. Home is where I seem to have the hardest time for some reason and most of it is all the crap that is laying around all the time. He said he would try really hard to not try and get me to go out so much, won't make suppers that I can't eat or things like that. So....we are going grocery shopping this weekend, I started on my menu's last night, and am starting this back on Monday. I'm trying really hard to get myself into that frame of mind. Seems like a vicious circle.
