I had a good week!! Couple of days ago I was showing even another pound off, but we had a large meal yesterday for Mother's Day. I am happy that I seem to be back on track.

You know, I was so worried and ashamed when I gained back weight earlier in this challenge...wanted to quit!! Didn't...and neither will you.

Since my last vacation in April I seemed to have spiraled out of control. I have another vacation coming up this week and I have to admit I am nervous about the food choices I make. I will try very hard to be conscientious at each meal. Why do I think vacation time means vacation from low carb? It is so ridiculous how my mind thinks when it comes to food.
WickedStitch Bravo !! You never give up. You have the stamina to never quit! We can do this.
Amy you are doing fantastic!

I have a bum knee and it gives me grief. Jerk. Anyhoo, back to plan today! I will have these three pounds off soon. I see these people that have stuck with LCHF for YEARS without "cheating"...wonder how they manage. Obviously much more willpower than me!

I am all for keeping this group going after the end of our challenge...I have grown attached to you Way to rock it with your losses this week!! I don't think I have ever lost 5lbs in a week..
You were in my neck of the woods Amy! I only live about 20 miles from the MOA, but I avoid it like the plague lol. I dread having to go to there, especially close to the holidays and on weekends! Ish! Also, I am starting a new thread after today!! We have made our 90 days ladies!

Amy, the scales DO lie....I think everyone "cheats" from time to time, the trick is to KEEP moving forward and don't let cheating become a constant state.

We had another AWESOME hike yesterday. The trails we hike are around the Trump National Golf course, and yesterday they had a celebrity golf tournament, Bruce Jenner and his camera crew nearly ran us over coming around a blind corner......that man has had TOO MUCH plastic surgery! He used to be so handsome.....

Then DD and SIL decided to come over last night to hang out and spend the night (They're off on Tuesdays so they always spend that day with us) and DS wanted us to me a girl he's been dating because he REALLY likes this one.....so we had a full house until 1 AM......I am TIRED today! Didn't eat any dinner because I just was not hungry.....but because it was Cinco de Mayo everyone was drinking Corona's, and I'm not a beer drinking so I had some bourbon and diet soda....on an empty stomach.....hmmmm....note to self, that REALLY goes to your head quickly! We had a ton of fun though and really like DS's new girlfriend.....hopefully we didn't scare her off.

Have a great day everyone!!
Good for you for limiting your intake on Cinco De Mayo—Be proud!!! Also when Im LCing I become a super cheap date when alcohol is involved, lol! It can be a good and bad thing, if you know what I mean

Better late than never! I agree though Im not where I want to be, but I am a hell of a lot closer than I would’ve been on my own. WTG ladies!!

Well, I will have an unexpected long weekend. We have to make a quick trip to AZ and will leave tomorrow, I have to be back to work on Monday, so it will be a quick turn around....I need to mentally prepare myself so that I make good choices....I don't want to undo all of the hard work I've done!! If I'm not on the boards for the next couple of days that's because I'm on the road....but I won't be gone long!!

Hope everyone is doing well!!
Dark chocolate is my treat on LC, I have learned to really really love a super dark chocolate (my fave is Midnight Reverie by Ghiradelli (86%) it has a winey/berry note to it that I probably never would have detected if it had been loaded with sugar
Hope your trip went well!

off to the grinding stone I go...I know this is not water weight.
It’s just water weight, no worries! It will come off, those carbs act like a sponge in your system and even a little bit of them can cause major bloat! We cant be perfect all the time

Good attitude, just pick yourself up, brush yourself off and move on, no need to dwell on something negative!

Amy you are doing fantastic!
I am definitely with you, I need to get re-focused, these past few months have been a whirlwind for me and I can’t put my finger on what has been bothering me. I leave for Vegas/Arizona for a 10 day stint in 26 days and I need to get below 200#--it is driving me nuts! Plus I need some new warmer clothes and don’t want to break the bank having to buy bigger sizes in clothes I already have—frustrating!! Just think about it one day at a time. Live in the present

Yay for 90 days!! So glad we're starting another thread!!

We had a great weekend, though I confess I am weary today! I did manage to make good choices on the road and I not only stayed in ketosis, but I dropped another pound!! My hubby was SOOOO impressed with my discipline!

Mariah, you did GREAT this challenge....I am so proud of you for sticking in there, I know you had some challenges along the way, but you have done great and been our fearless leader this whole time!

Rob, look at you! You're rocking the 130's like the rest of us want too.....how inspiring you have been and continue to be!! You'll lose those couple of pounds with no problem.....don't even sweat it!

Sammi, You can do this!! You've lost 6 pounds and that is nothing to sneeze at!! focus on the low carb foods that you love and treat yourself to those, that helps me stay on track big time.

Amy, you rock....a 4 pound loss is AWESOME!! Way to go!!

WS, You have the best attitude.....you truly are inspiring. It takes a LOT to be a military wife and to juggle weight loss on top of everything is very impressive......I think you're a super star! How is Rambo by the way??

We ladies, here's to the next 90 days.....we can do this!!

Oh yes count me in for the new challenge...just as well. I gave myself 3mths to get to 125lbs, so I can stray from time to time, without immediately being in what I call the danger zone weight wise.
I accept that I am not disciplined, and will never be. I also know that the straying is what makes the strict parts of the journey worth facing.

I disagree on you feeling like you're not disciplined! You have lost 14#, that is discipline my friend! Pat yourself on the back

Thanks hon..you know how this journey is...when I keep seeing what I did not do right (part of the negative mind chatter that is part of this sh*t) its hard to acknowledge how well/far things are coming along.

I have a totally new mindset, I accept and will indulge from time to time and I have come to realize that it means I don't rebel and go totally off piste.
