Thanks Stacey! I will do that today! Awesome job with the total weight loss!!!

I also had about 3 or 4 diet sodas. My ankles PUFFED up by bedtime. I'm back on track today and NO sodas, just water. Just hope I didn't cause too much damage.
I weighed in yesterday and seem to be back on track. I lost 2.5 lbs , all fat. Eating something in the morning before I work out and making sure I was eating 600+ cals of protein really made a difference. Hopefully I can repeat this week. I'm down 14lbs in 5 weeks. I'm almost halfway to my goal weight and pretty excited! I was so scared that I was going to a hit a wall and not lose anything else but I listened and it worked. Keep the faith out there!

I'm new to MWL - joined last Wednesday. Feeling like I'm losing weight, but all of a sudden think that I'm counting calories wrong. I have been eating between 600-700 total calories (of high protein vegetarian foods) and keeping the carb count between 20-25 as advised by the clinic. Should I be counting protein specifically - for instance if I eat something that is 80 calories with 8 grams of protein, is that 80 calories toward by daily total or is that 32 calories? Have been following you all for the past several days before joining - thanks for the inspiration!

Go by your list given to you in MWL clinic. If the food is MOSTLY protein, you count all the calories as protein. It can be confusing I know, but there are other ingredients in a "protein" food item besides protein specifically, there are fats, and a few carbs in a protein food. So you count the total calories of that protein food, not just the protein portion of the protein food. OK?

My biggest problem is that I'm a vegetarian so I'm not eating most of the items on the MWL list. Thanks for the help though and congratulations on your amazing success - I hope to be as successful as yoU!

Congrats! Isn't it funny how SWEET lettuce tastes after a week of nothing but lean protein!

Just wanted to pop on with some encouragment for those just starting out. I have lost over 40lbs and reached my first Medi goal. When I set it I really couldn't imagine ever being at this point, but here I am, and I lowered it because I realize I can go lower......I never would have dreamed that. I have more energy, I can run 4 miles at a time without stopping, and I actually enjoy clothes shopping, and getting dressed in the morning. This program does work. Stick with it. Some days are CRAZY hard, and some days aren't so bad, but if you stick with it you will see amazing results, I promise.

Hi everyone! I go into my local MediWeightLoss clinic tomorrow afternoon and boy, am I stoked!

I'm excited about just doing something very different, after losing my motivation to stick to Weight Watchers.

The advice and real-life accounts of what you have been through/are going through are truly inspirational and I can't wait to share my own experiences.

I really need this forum because I know if I tell my friends and family I'm doing this, they will not be supportive at all.

It's my decision, it will be me going through the process, and it will be me who will be enjoying being thinner.

Jillo ~ you've come to the right place for support through your successes AND frustrations! You're absolutely right about it being YOU going through the process... it helps me in so many ways to stay focussed on that fact. But, you might be surprised at the support some of your friends and/or family will express once they see your progress.
I'll have my 5th weigh-in Thurs & I've lost every week (weight & inches), but I've gained much more ~ more confidence, more energy, improved health & pride in successes through hard work!

Good for you! I'm just 7 days in, but it already feels like a game changer for me. I hope it will be for you as well! Looking forward to watching your progress!

Welcome to this forum! I see that you have lost weight already (if I read your stats correctly) but still have more to lose. I have lost almost 100 lb to date (in 7 months) and joined this forum somewhere around 50 lb loss when I felt I was losing steam and needed extra support. This forum really renewed my resolve and helped me achieve these amazing results. It will help you do the same!

Headaches & Cravings

I started on Friday and reading all your accomplishments helps to keep me from diving into the cookies I made last night for my husband. I can see in the mirror that my body is changing already which is incredible!! However I am suffering terrible headaches all, I wake up with them and go to bed with them. The cravings are pretty intense today too....any ideas on what I can eat to "trick" myself?

jlc: Sugar-free gum has helped me a lot these past 2 weeks. I have a Ziploc bag with like 8 different kids in my purse, and tons more at home. I only end up needing like 2 pieces a day, but (for me, anyways) it works wonders.

I just have to vent: I am so stressed out about my third weigh-in tomorrow! I feel like I have done really well, but I did cheat/treat (once, and such a small "cheat"!) and have been having a hard time keeping my sodium in check. Did I work out enough, too much, or not enough? Did I eat the right foods? Am I going to be disappointed with a small weight loss, because is it REALLY realistic to expect 2 great weeks in a row? But, I did start running, so shouldn't that help? (for the record, please don't answer these questions, I just feel the need to say them out loud and quite frankly, I think you guys are the only ones who would understand and listen! Lol!). I'm getting to the point where this isn't a new a fun thing anymore, I need to shift my mental focus from weekly weight loss to lifestyle and mindset changes.

Whew. That feels a bit better, thanks for listening : ) I will post an update tomorrow after my appointment.

Stacey, you made me smile (kids vs kinds of gum in your purse!). I would suggest that you look at our MWL blogs and books thread. It gives a lot of resources that helped a bunch of us several months ago...this is an emotional journey as well as a health journey!

Hi Stacey ~ Thanks for saying what a lot of us have thought & felt in starting this WOL. After 5 weeks, I'm still dealing with this as a "new" thing. In my head I know it has to eventally become an entire way of living, but, after all, how many years did it take each of us to get to our pre-Medi ways-of-life?! I plan to "lean on" the support provided by my clinic & HERE as long as it takes to make a successful transition.

Just back from my first weigh-in

Lost 8 pounds - 6.5 of it fat! Totally cool - my scale this morning before the appointment showed 9 pounds, so 8 is good! Bring on week 2!

Oh my goodness! So much support already! Now I am even MORE excited about doing this. I didn't think that was possible.

Yay!!

Thank you for the kind words, everyone.

Only 4.5 more hours until my first MWL appointment!

Ok, I made it and did not have a heart attack in the process (I was up until 2AM easily, I was so freaked out about today's appointment). I lost 3.5 pounds, all fat (no water loss, blamed on my excessive sodium intake) so I'm pretty happy! Good result, and room for improvement so I know I can do better. AND, better yet, I was given permission to indulge (within reason) for my daughter's birthday bash this weekend, drinks and all! I just have to follow the week one plan until Friday, then again once we get back on Monday until I get back into ketosis and my 4th appointment on Wednesday. I have to work out every day, too, but my doctor said I should be OK, and that learning to indulge responsibly is part of the plan : )

That being said, my goal this week is to stop obsessing over "how much weight can I lose this week", and start focusing on settling into this eating plan as a permanent way of life. I know it will take some work and some time, but after stressing so much this past week I know this is the direction I now need to be headed in.

and Barrister: great work! Doesn't it feel GOOD!!! Week 2 gets easier, just don't be like me and just stick to the plan without obsessing over your weight loss, lol!! I don't recommend it!

Sodium Intake

Hi all,
Is there a thread for sodium intake? I know this should be monitored, but when I asked my NP about how much I should have, she kind of shrugged her shoulders and said "that's a good question" (much to my disappointment). I could go by the daily requirements (listed as a % on the nutritional info), but don't keep a running tab during the day. There is sodium in diet sodas and Poweraide Zero, as well as some deli meats. When cooking meats for dinner (beef, chicken, pork), I used low sodium grill mates and I never use the salt shaker.
Since Father's Day - I started the day after - I've lost just over 35 pounds. My 5-year old daughter weighs 35 pounds. When I pick her up, I can't help thinking that just two months ago, I was walking around all day with this much extra weight. My water weight has been roughly constant (past the 2nd week), yet this last week, I lost only 1.5 pounds (lost 4 lbs of fat, yet gained 2 lbs in water). I blamed it on having a regular beer (not a low carb or light) this past week and going to the gym for an hour on the day I weighed in.
I guess I just want newbies to look for sodium intake and ask what other big sources of sodium there could be while on this diet.

If you figure out to stop obsessing over how much weight I can lose this week...please let me know!! I'm 15 weeks in and each week I think about it constantly! I also refuse to buy a scale for my house (as my clinic asked us not to weigh ourselves at home during the week) so it kills me each week to wait 7 days. I think you'll find a lot of us "obsess" each week over what the lose will be....then we think, think, and think some more about why we lost a little/a lot!

AND, better yet, I was given permission to indulge (within reason) for my daughter's birthday bash this weekend, drinks and all! I just have to follow the week one plan until Friday, then again once we get back on Monday until I get back into ketosis and my 4th appointment on Wednesday. I have to work out every day, too, but my doctor said I should be OK, and that learning to indulge responsibly is part of the plan : )

That being said, my goal this week is to stop obsessing over "how much weight can I lose this week", and start focusing on settling into this eating plan as a permanent way of life. I know it will take some work and some time, but after stressing so much this past week I know this is the direction I now need to be headed in.

and Barrister: great work! Doesn't it feel GOOD!!! Week 2 gets easier, just don't be like me and just stick to the plan without obsessing over your weight loss, lol!! I don't recommend it!
I hope you have a great time at your daughter's birthday bash - you've definitely earned it and deserve it! Don't worry about your weight - just know that you will be able to jump right back in on Monday and that it's all a part of the process! I think that little indulgences like that make it so much easier to maintain the new way of eating without falling off the wagon and going back to our old habits!

I too like to obsess over the scale numbers, but I'm getting better every day at being more aware of how I feel and look than what the scale says. Every day is a struggle!
