GIRL you need to update your stats! It says you're 140! Sizes have been fairly consistent with me recently. I shopped at 3 stores on Friday and I was the same. What I can't stand is getting something that fits really well and then 2 hours after you wear them, they stretch so far out, they won't stay up. I was thinking it was quality but I bought some $200 pairs of jeans at Buckle and they do the same thing! It's so frustrating!

I thought first number is original weight, second is goal weight, third is current weight. Looks like I had goal and current backwards. So my info was wrong.

Actually, the first number is your original weight, the second number is your current weight, the third number represents your original determined goal weight. At least that it what it was when McBoo, Susie and I were first around the forum. You are correct, Texas!

Hi. I went to the clinic this morning and while my weight was up, my fat percentage was down! I'm two weeks into transition and the NP thought I was doing great. My water was up and she said that was probably due to the added carbs. She also said to keep doing what I was doing but to go ahead and up my calories even more. Next week I will do the breathing thing and I'm pretty excited about that. I finally feel like I CAN do this!

Great job, Lea!!!

I had my monthly weigh-in this morning and am down 1/2 pound from last month.

It has been a rough month. I was in a horrible hit & run car accident a few weeks ago, fortunately I was only banged and bruised, but I haven't been able to lift weights or run without being in pain.

Exercising makes it so much easier to eat sensibly and maintain! When I am not exercising, I have to be ultra-conscious of what I am eating ~ less "eye-balling" food and more weighing and measuring.

Congratulations Lea! I love your renewed attitude! I'm looking to you to forage this path....I'm steps behind you, my friend!

Suzanna - ouch! Do you believe in chiropractors? I do (I have a good one here). Perhaps you need things rearranged to their original location from having been jerked around from the impact. I hope you're feeling better soon!

Are you having bread now and if so what kind? How much carbs are you having per day approx.

Lea, great attitude, keep it up! I have a question? Are you taking AS in maintenance? How long is the maintenance phase?

Lea, I am so proud of you!

Suzanna, I was wondering where you had been! I hope you are on the mend soon and take it easy so as not to further injure yourself.

Oh and I'm not Lea but there is no AS in maintenance-land. If you haven't already been, that's when you are weaned. And about the bread - proceed with caution! I stay away from all bread but occasionally have a low carb tortilla or 1/2 of one of those flat out wraps. I'm just not much into bread anymore, honestly. If I want to have something carby, I reserve that for something like real peanut butter, dark chocolate, etc. I can't go over 50g carbs or it makes me feel awful and HUNGRY so it doesn't make sense to add something like bread in on a regular basis.

Medi paperwork says that you should have all this cereal and breads and such though - up to 100g a day of carbs. But everyone in the clinic keeps theirs around 30-50 so I do too.

I am having bread now - in fact I had a two slice sandwich today for the first time in months and months. I buy the Sara Lee 100% whole wheat or whole grain bread. It's only 45 calories per slice and I've always loved the taste. I was eating this long before Medi, but had to put it on hold until today. Welcome back!!

Suzanna, I've been wondering about you, too! I'm sorry to hear about your accident! I'm with Debbie - I visit the chiropractor fairly often and that's on a good day.

Since I'm not much of a rice eater, I chose to get my starches via the bread. I'm a huge cereal addict, so am steering clear of that for a while yet. I've had a bowl or two of fiber one and unsweetened almond milk, but it's still a trigger for me and hard to stop. The bread feels good to me because it's not something I'm likely to overeat. When the sandwich is gone, it's gone.

I never did take the AS but often times wish I did. I think the transition phase is supposed to be about 4 weeks then you move into wellness, but I also think that depends on each person. I know some people have spent a little longer there and others have moved thru it more quickly. Mine will end up being three weeks instead of four.

Thanks everyone for your input re the bread, etc. I saw the flatout bread in Publix and I think I will try it in the future, probably half at a time. I heard Ezkiel Raisin Bread is good too. I think bread will be an occasional thing for me instead of daily.

I agree that bread won't be a daily thing for me either. And I've heard the Ezkiel Raisin bread is REALLY good!!!!

How is everyone doing this week?

The last few days or so, I have not been in a good place. I can't get below 126 because honestly, I am either hungry or craving something or both. That's 3 pounds over my lowest. I really hope this is a hormone thing and not some downward spiral. It would be one thing if I were in acute and hungry but I'm in maintenance and should not be having this kind of hunger/cravings.

They did take a picture as I am the only one of their client who has followed the program all the way through wellness. Some have gotten to transition, but no further. So now they have a before/goal/1year later picture.

I would love to be a Medi as a counselor too, but they are fully staffed, so I will keep walking my travel industry path.

Hot and humid today, so walking on the treadmill.

Off to pack for a trip to Dallas...I fly off to Texas tomorrow.


Jo
Congrats and kudos Jo! Sorry to be responding so late, but this is the first chance I have had to get on. You so deserve any attention your clinic wants to shed. You have been an amazing success story.

Today as I was seeing new patients I carried a before picture of my whole family and told them how much each of us has lost on Medi (me - 68, my DH - 58, and my son - 70). Then when I tell them that I have kept off the weight for over a year they are really encouraged and inspired. I also give them a few recipes to make week 1 a little easier. I have started to prepare a week 1 menu that is not so painful using some of our recipes like oopsie rolls, crustless pizza, crustless quesidillas, shrimp cocktail... I've even brought in samples of the oopsie rolls so they can taste how good they are.

We have had so many patients make it to wellness at our clinic. One of the things I stress to patients is how important it is to go through the maintenance and wellness phase as it is (IMHO) harder than acute phase. I also tell them if they have to come back to Medi once a year to undo any damage they may have done to do that before letting all the weight come back on. Most of the staff at our clinic have been challenged with our weight so we completely understand and there is nothing to be ashamed of. When I do get a patient who comes back after gaining some weight back after reaching goal, I congratulate them for making the decision to come back.

As for me, I have finally come to a place on maintenance that it is almost effortless. I am so content with this WOE and don't feel the least bit deprived. I eat mostly protein and vegetables, and once a week split a steak and eggs brunch which comes with a bagel and steak fries with my husband. It is seldom enough that it does not cause cravings, yet gives me something to look forward to.

Sorry to be so long winded, but I had so much to say. I still love reading your posts.

God Bless

Hey McBoo,

You are always the encourager and I love you for it. This job has been so rewarding for me. Just today a patient came in that had not been in for a while and had gained some of her weight back. She was discouraged and depressed. The front office said that I was the perfect person to get her motivated again and asked me if I would please see her. I felt so bad for her and just wanted to help her get her spark back. It feels so good to turn clients around and get them excited again.

My youngest son is trying. When I came back from Italy he said "Mom, I am finally ready. Please help me." His first week he lost 9 pounds, and since he is not on the meds (I'm doing it from home) I did not restrict his calories. He naturally cut back on calories by eating protein only and no carbs. He said that he was not very hungry with all the protein. This is a kid that could eat more than 3 pizzas a day. Last week he cheated because his best friend was in town and they went out to eat, but this week he got right back on it and lost another 3+ pounds. I so hope he sticks with it. I've been making oopsie rolls by the dozens.

Congrats on all your achievements! I think they mean even more to me in maintenance as this is the beginning of your new lifestyle.

As for bread, cereal, rice, etc..., I personally will not do this on a regular basis, but just once in a while. Our clinic recommends that you eat the bulk of your carbs before 3pm and eat a protein along with your carbs, especially if it is not a low glycemic carb.

Whenever I am tempted I focus on how wonderful I feel energywise, healthwise, and self esteemwise. Nothing is worth sabotaging that!

Stress is my downfall. This week has been a major adjustment with several high profile clients and my kids starting school. Throw guilt in there for not being a good mommy and I'm a disaster waiting to happen. When I'm stressed I drink - when I drink I eat. To compound this issue, my energy is at an all time low from the change in routine. Another trigger of mine. Eating when I'm tired. Ugh.

I'm going to have to put my before/after pictures up to remind myself of where I was. I never want to be that person again.

I was so good at posing for pictures so I would look thinner than I was... so of course, now... when I could use the biggest picture... I am not finding one!

Boston is going great in terms of touring and eating. Well, a lot of places are closed for renovation including the Boston Tea Party Museum. But I love walking around -- the architecture and history is amazing.

I bought a pair a jeans just before school was out because the others were just falling off and I was almost done with acute phase. I bought comfortably a fitted pair and a snug pair. Comfortably fitting jeans now loose while tighter one fit just right. Don't know how that happened! Seeing me in these made me realize I am thin.

I think having three kids and hitting 40 -- things aren't as tight as they used to be, so the saggy and wrinkly skin can look misleading. I think I've said too much

Well I went in for my wellness visit today and I'm down 4 lbs of fat - 3 lbs overall. I also got a lecture about not maintaining. Honest to God, I think their scales are wrong! My fat is really low and I'm still flabby?

If you are down 4 lbs fat why the lecture from them? Isn't that good?

Oh I get it. They don't want you to loose anymore fat?

Congratulations, Debbie! You did itI am sure it is an amazing feeling to have achieved something that you set to do. As for me, as it comes to weight loss I have never been able to achieve my goals. It looks like this time I might, especially seeing that it is possible by looking at success stories like yours!

I have had a rough couple of weeks. I have made some poor food choices and am nervous about going to my weigh in this evening. I am certain I have gained some weight. I have always been a stress eater and the past weeks have been stressful.

I traveled to Indiana with my wife and son to see my grandfather who is ill. Once we arrived at the airport my wife became sick and then began having contractions (she was only 20 weeks along.) We ended up at a hospital hours away from anyone we knew in a city that is foreign to us. The Dr's were great and were able to control the contractions and my wife and the baby are well now. My two year old son and I spent those two days visiting her in the hospital and juggling hotels. Bad eating choices started at this point.

After a couple days my wife was released and we were able to get to my grandfathers house and see him. He isn't doing well and we helped my grandmother take care of him. During this time I found I was beginning to fall back into my old food habits.

I then injured my knee while running and now have a strained IT band, which causes extreme pain while going down stairs or while running. So my primary mode of exercise is now difficult as well.

Hoping my weigh in won't be too tragic this evening, and I am hoping they can help me get myself under control.
