I went up a pound or so but have been eating a lot more fruits and veggies in my diet. Hopefully that will go back down as my body gets used to eating more variety . Good luck at weigh in everyone!

OK, I know I went up a pound, but I'm actually happy about it. Why? Well, as of yesterday I was at 180, struggling to stay on track for more than breakfast and maybe dinner.

Well, I'm happy to report that I have been on track all day today! So hopefully the scale will continue it's downward trend.

Great losses everyone - hopefully I'll be back to being a loser with all of you again next week. lol!

Wendy - has to be that your retaining water, but that is just confirmation to me that exercising is bad

Of course I'm kidding. I was exercising then I pulled a muscle in my lower back - and now it hurts to walk. I will be glad when it is healed so I can get back to it. I think the benefits of exercise in reshaping your body are very important.

Anyway - HAPPY HUMPDAY everyone. And congratulations to all you LOSERS out there!

Hi there! Just checking in with a quick question. I want to include more coconut oil in my diet for various reasons, but the last couple of times I have tried things with coconut oil, I have gotten nauseous. Could this mean that my oil is bad? The expiration date is not until 1/20/14. We keep it on top of the fridge, and sometimes it has been liquefied because it does get hot up there at times. Should I get new oil and store it somewhere else? Or could it be that coconut oil is just something I can't eat? I was fine the first few times I ate it, so that's why I'm leaning toward the possibility that the oil itself is bad, rather than it's something I can't eat.

Thanks for any feedback!

Mine has gone through the something. I don't store it in fridge. Never had it go bad that I know of....

Could you have used too much and not built up slowly enough? It will do that if your body hasn't adjusted to higher levels. How much are you using a day? If you get new, use what you have for hair and skin perhaps.

I actually haven't had it in a long time because of getting sick last time I tried it - it's probably been at least two months.

It looks and smells normal, so maybe I just overdid it. I'll try reintroducing small amounts and see how that works. I wanted to add it back in to prevent constipation because I saw someone else on here had good luck with that.

Plus I loved the chocolate bark stuff I made with it before it made me sick, and I'd love to have that again. Maybe I can make some of that and divide it into tiny pieces to start out. Hmmmm....might try that!

Thanks!

I quit using it for a bit and recently started again. Have been adding half a tsp. at first to coffee once a day, then several days later, upped to a full tsp. now up to 2 a day. One in morning, one later. I feared too much lax. Effect! LOL it does help in that area, and others. Less dry skin, etc.

Hey everyone! I've been looking at ways to include coconut oil in my diet as well. Just bought some and am going to cook eggs in it to see how I like that. I'm gonna try it in my coffee too kitty!!!

Hey all... Been super busy and haven't had a chance to stop by. Great losses all of you!

I haven't wanted to weigh in ... I have been good but feel very tired and bloated. I may be eating WAY too much salt everyday...

Going to cut back on salt and see if I feel better.

Happy weekend!

Coconut oil in coffee....yummy! You may have to get used to it....the oil needs stirred in often. DGS has taken to stirring Nana's coffee for her when here.

A benefit I never would have thought of.....no chapped lips! The oil works on protecting them after you've drank it! Coats them with a non heavy barrier.....better than chap stick's waxy feeling.

Well, someone I go to school with told me yesterday that I need to be really careful about being on the Atkins diet because she learned all about it in her Anatomy and Physiology class. Her professor told them that Atkins is really dangerous because it makes your body go into something she can't remember the name of, but that it's deadly. I'm pretty sure she is thinking of ketoacidosis rather than ketosis. Yeah, those are just a slight bit different. I told her I'm not too worried!

She then went on to say how she lost 40 pounds by "changing a few things" like not drinking pop and eating more fruit and vegetables. And ironically, she eats almost the same as me, with the exception of the fruit she eats (I'm not at the point where I'm adding in fruit yet)!

The best part? I had a rough day yesterday - stomach pains which were making me think once again about throwing in the towel and forcing myself to suffer through eating low fat again. OK, those weren't fun, but the good part of all of this is that I thought of her and thought "I'll show her - I'll lose weight, get healthy, and show her that I'm not going to die from this diet!" So her words of caution gave me new motivation to succeed. Hey, I'll take it! Whatever it takes, right?

Beach, you're gonna have to help me in a few years when I have to deal with DD leaving for college. I don't know how you do it. I already told DD she's not allowed to go out of state. I need to be able to drive to see her whenever i want. lol
