to all our new folks! SO nice to have such a great group of like minded folks around!! You can do it--it's 8 weeks--you can do ANYTHING for 8 weeks! And once you've got 8 weeks under your belt, you'll be so much closer to your goals and have established some really great healthy habits!!!!


I NO EXCUSES, NO SURPRISES

my first time around with LC i used to say: S.U.A.D.I (shut up and do it) and ya know when i did that, there weren't any unpleasant surprises...just weight decreasing and fitness increases! So No Excuses!!!!!


Woke up this morning and got my work out in before work: Walk away the lbs muscle mile (i used 3 lb weights and found it slightly too much lol...the balls she was using were 2 lbs so i figured it wasn't that big of a difference so i just sucked it up!); i followed it was some deep "yoga" stretches. My hips were really tight but already feel better. Gonna try and get some more stretching in throughout the day! Eating completely on plan... gotta get my water in! Great job all!

D: fish broth with prawns, lime leaf, home-dried red bell peppers and tomatoes (135kcals)

Snack: Bulletproof cocoa made with cocoa powder, a square of dark chocolate, unsweetened almond milk and MCT oil (160kcals)

Total 450kcals (because I'm in maintenance, I could have up to 900kcals if I preferred/needed it): roughly 70% kcals were from fat, the majority of that is MCT to support the migraine control.

My menu is slightly odd because it's a ketogenic protocol that is restrictive enough to control migraine. One of the very successful JUDDD dieters has a couple of fixed DD menus that always includes a small Wendy's Chili for her lunch because it is very frugal on the calories: there are some JUDDDers' default DD menus described in this thread.

Thanks for cheering us all on Nice job yourself on fitting in a pre-work work out.

I keep havering about buying myself a decent quality foam roller to help loosen up some joints and assist the stretching. I must think about it further.

We have a potluck tomorrow at work...the theme is "Healthy food for the new year". Please please someone give me a recipe that involves bacon, butter and cheese. I guess I could do a cauliflower mash...but I'm not a fan of cauliflower. The list so far includes: low fat mac n' cheese, veggie and fruit trays, granola and yogurt, brown rice salad, cinnamon apple chips, black bean salad, lentil soup...I need something good. I do have enough cream cheese to make a crustless cheesecake, but I really want to stay away from desserts until I'm feeling strong again.

Why is it my mean voice inside says I don't have the right to bring something super fatty? I don't feel like I have the right to bring what I consider to be healthy, because I don't have an ideal body, so therefore my opinion isn't valid. I hate having eating issues. People already call me brisket or bacon girl at work, lol. I really don't care what anyone says when I'm strong and on track for a while, but I don't feel that way right now.

Edit to add I think I'll just skip the buffet, and make what I planned on bringing for myself which is mini hamburgers with lettuce wraps and crumbled blue cheese. For me and me only.

there isn't an emoticon angry enough for the way i feel when i read the bolded! You may not be at your goal yet, but your choices ARE healthy for you! The good news is that its not really anyone else's business! the bad news is that we beat ourselves up about ppl anyway! Stay focused and do what's best for you! As you lose weight you will go from bacon girl to the health guru and we will all be grinning on the inside when we hear u post about it!

Thanks Tyl, I feel the same way when I read / think those words. I guess we're all a work in progress - that voice I spoke of is one I've been working to quiet for many years. I appreciate your positive attitude specifically and this thread in general. Sometimes I think that I've done a great disservice to OTHERS by condemning myself for my body image and eating habits all of these years...if people know I sometimes talk to myself that way, what must they think I'm saying about them? I would be miserable to think that my actions have hurt someone else. I'm sorry that was a bummer of a thing to say. I am excited for the time when I can turn that internal track off, before it has a chance to speak!!

I appreciate your honesty and candor! I know my self talk has been pretty bad over the years too, even when i lost weight the first time (and looked really great) i still had a distorted body image! You called, we are all a work in progress! As long as you are doing the work, no need to make any apologies! There is a lot to body image/weight loss/eating psychology that is just plan mental/emotional...if it were all about food, ppl would have it figured out by now!

i follow psychology of eating, here's a relevant post

Quote:
One of the most fundamental building blocks of nutritional metabolism is neither vitamin, mineral, nor molecule. It’s our relationship with food. It’s the sum total of our innermost thoughts and feelings about what we eat. This relationship with food is as deep and revealing as any we might ever have. The great Sufi poet Rumi once remarked: “The satiated man and the hungry man do not see the same thing when they look upon a loaf of bread.” And Al Capone, noted gangster, astutely observed, “When I sell liquor, it’s called bootlegging; when my patrons serve it on silver trays on Lake Shore Drive, it’s called hospitality.” Indeed, how each of us thinks about eating is so profoundly relative that if a group of us were looking at the same plate of food, no two people would see the same thing, or metabolize it the same way.

Say, for example, we were examining a plate of pasta, chicken, and salad. A woman wanting to lose weight might see calories and fat. She’d respond favorably to the salad or chicken but would view the pasta with fear. An athlete trying to gain muscle mass might look at the same meal and see protein. She’d focus on the chicken and look past the other foods. A pure vegetarian could see the distasteful sight of a dead animal and wouldn’t touch anything on the plate. A chicken farmer, on the other hand, would likely be proud to see a good piece of meat. Someone trying to heal a disease through diet would see either potential medicine or potential poison, depending upon whether or not the plate of food is permissible on her chosen diet. A scientist studying nutrient content in food would see a collection of chemicals.

What’s amazing is that each of these eaters will metabolize this same meal quite differently in response to her unique thoughts. In other words, what you think and feel about a food can be as important a determinant of its nutritional value and its effect on body weight as the actual nutrients themselves.

Sound unbelievable?

Here’s a bit about how the science works:

How Your Brain Eats

The information highway of brain, spinal cord, and nerves is like a telephone system through which your mind communicates with your digestive organs. Let’s say you’re about to eat an ice cream cone. The notion and image of that ice cream occurs in the higher center of the brain – the cerebral cortex. From there, information is relayed electrochemically to the limbic system, which is considered the “lower” portion of the brain. The limbic system regulates emotions and key physiological functions such as hunger, thirst, temperature, sex drive, heart rate, and blood pressure. Within the limbic system is a pea-sized collection of tissues known as the hypothalamus, which integrates the activities of the mind with the biology of the body. In other worlds, it takes sensory, emotional, and thought input and transduces this information into physiological responses. This is nothing short of a miracle.

If the ice cream is your favorite flavor – say, chocolate – and you consume it with a full measure of delight, the hypothalamus will modulate this positive input by sending activation signals via parasympathetic nerve fibers to the salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver, and gallbladder. Digestion will be stimulated and you’ll have a fuller metabolic breakdown of the ice cream while burning its calories more efficiently.

If you’re feeling guilty about eating the ice cream or judging yourself for eating it, the hypothalamus will take this negative input and send signals down the sympathetic fibers of the autonomic nervous system. This initiates inhibitory responses in the digestive organs, which means you’ll be eating your ice cream but not fully metabolizing it. It may stay in your digestive system longer, which can diminish your population of healthy gut bacteria and increase the release of toxic by-products into the bloodstream. Furthermore, inhibitory signals in the nervous system can decrease your calorie-burning efficiency via increased insulin and cortisol, which would cause you to store more of your guilt-infused ice cream as body fat. So the thoughts you think about the food you eat instantly become reality in your body via the central nervous system.

The brain doesn’t distinguish between a real stressor or an imagined one. If you sat in a room all by yourself, happy and content, and started thinking about the guy who did you wrong years ago, and if that story still carries a charge for you – your body would quickly shift into the physiologic stress-state – increased heart rate and blood pressure, followed by decreased digestive function.

Any guilt about food, shame about the body, or judgment about health are considered stressors by the brain and are immediately transduced into their electrochemical equivalents in the body. You could eat the healthiest meal on the planet, but if you’re thinking toxic thoughts the digestion of your food goes down and your fat storage metabolism can go up. Likewise, you could be eating a nutritionally challenged meal, but if your head and heart are in the right place, the nutritive power of your food will be increased.

Placebo on a Plate

To fully appreciate the power of mind over metabolism, let’s take a fresh look at one of the most compelling phenomenon in science: the placebo effect. Here’s my favorite example of this extraordinary force.

In 1983, medical researchers were testing a new chemotherapy treatment. One group of cancer patients received the actual drug being tested while another group received a placebo – a fake harmless, inert chemical substance. As you may know, pharmaceutical companies are required by law to test all new drugs against a placebo to determine the true effectiveness, if any, of the product in question. In the course of this study, no one thought twice when 74 percent of the cancer patients receiving the real chemotherapy exhibited one of the more common side effects of this treatment: they lost their hair. Yet, quite remarkably, 31 percent of the patients on the placebo chemotherapy – an inert saltwater injection – also had an interesting side effect: they lost their hair too. Such is the power of expectation. The only reason that those placebo patients lost their hair is because they believed they would. Like many people, they associated chemotherapy with going bald.

So if the power of the mind is strong enough to make our hair fall out when taking a placebo, what do you think happens when we think to ourselves “This cake is fattening, I really shouldn’t be eating it,” or “I’m going to eat this fried chicken but I know it’s bad for me,” or “I enjoy eating my salad because it’s really healthy?”

Certainly I’m not saying we can eat poison without any harm if we believe it’s good for us. I’m suggesting that what we believe about any substance we consume can powerfully influence how it affects the body. Every day, millions of people eat and drink while thinking strong and convincing thoughts about their meal.

Consider some of the foods you’ve given strong associations to:

“Salt will raise my blood pressure.”

“Fat will make me fatter.”

“Sugar will rot my teeth.”

“I can’t make it through the day without my cup of coffee.”

“This meat will raise my cholesterol level.”

“This calcium will build my bones.”

To a certain degree, some of these statements may be true. But is it possible that we are instigating these effects? And if these effects are the inherent result of eating these foods, can you see how we can enhance those results with the potency of our expectations?

The placebo effect is not some rare and unusual creature.

Its appearance is quite commonplace. Researchers have estimated that 35 to 45 percent of all prescription drugs may owe their effectiveness to placebo power and that 67 percent of all over-the-counter medications, such as headache remedies, cough medicines, and appetite suppressants, are also placebo based. In some studies the response to placebos is as high as 90 percent.

It amazes me that very few in the scientific community have made the obvious connection between placebo power and food. Indeed, the placebo effect is built into the nutritional process. It’s profoundly present on a day-to-day basis every time we eat. It’s like phoning in a prescription to your own inner nutritional pharmacy. What we believe is alchemically translated into the body through nerve pathways, the endocrine system, neuropeptide circulation, the immune network, and the digestive tract.

Can you see the importance of your inner world when it comes to metabolizing a meal? Are you ready to bring your happier and more relaxed self to the table?

I love to hear your thoughts and insights. Please share your own stories about the power of the mind to influence a meal.

My warmest regards,

Marc David

Interesting...

Wow... that is a really deep concept. Note to self: be happy about everything you eat from now on (LOL)

Bobbin: I think doing a lunch for yourself is a wise idea. I've been more successful this time around by not allowing others to influence my weight loss plan.

A few years ago, I would look on the threads about all the LC breads and desserts people were eating, and when I tried them, they always seemed to sabotage my efforts. I finally realized--and came to accept-- that I do so much better if I try to just stick with whatever is on my plan, and that's it. If I eat on plan, I really don't feel hungry or crave sweets or anything, so when I finally convinced myself that I wasn't missing out on anything by not eating those things, it's become effortless for me. It has taken me a LONG time to get to this point, but the lesson I learned was to do ONLY what was best for ME when it came to food.

Day 2 is going well so far. It is 3:30 my time and all food has been on plan and I walked nearly 7 miles.

I bought a Jawbone Up with some Christmas money, synced it with a running app and calorie counting app I had already been using and it is great fun. It monitored my sleep last night too.

Day 2

Ate on plan but had to eat two atkins bars to keep me from all out binging


Exercise- Rest day


My body feels sore and tired today, when I picked up the babies at work my arms got so fatigued, so I am thinking I am going to go a little lighter on the exercise until I adjust to eating low carb more fully. Will definitely get the required days though Tyl

Everyone here rocks!!! So motivated and encouraging. I can't wait to see all the great results at the end of the eight weeks.

Is it too late to join? I started again yesterday and think this challenge is what is necessary to keep me accountable.

Checking in. Successful day here. Clean eating and instead of walking outside I did a Leslie Sansone DVD... 3 miles. I'm working on my last 20 oz of water to reach my gallon. All-in-all a pretty stellar day!

Exercise- Rest day


My body feels sore and tired today, when I picked up the babies at work my arms got so fatigued, so I am thinking I am going to go a little lighter on the exercise until I adjust to eating low carb more fully. Will definitely get the required days though Tyl

Everyone here rocks!!! So motivated and encouraging. I can't wait to see all the great results at the end of the eight weeks.
Sounds like u are making some good decisions! Glad to hear u skipped the crap and made a better choice!

As for the exercise just be sure you aren't talking yourself out of doing what you really can do! I have every confidence that u will get your minimum requirements in!!!!

Two perfect days down, and another pound lost as a reward.

Thanks so much for cheering us on, Chantyl!

Having friends over for dinner tonight but I won't be derailed.

Happy New Year, Crap-Cutters!
