Hey Thin! That's exactly what baby girl needs... tubes. But Im just soo nervous about the whole "operation" thing. I know it will be okay. I just need to keep reminding myself that its a simple procedure.

Thanks for the welcome back Fit - you've been doing excellent!!

Here's a modification to yesterday's meal plan:

Breakfast: 4 egg whites and coffee
Lunch: grilled chicken (2.5 oz)
Snack: coffee
Water: 104oz
Dinner: Chicken, Eggs, & Coffee
Total Cals: 465 protein/145 Coffee (lol)

Exersize: 45 minute brisk walk.

The coffee really helps "end" the meal. I know its mental, but it's helping get through it. Im going to try and drink less of it again. I did it before. I know I can do it again.

B - 2 eggs, water, 2 cups coffee
L - Caprese Salad and water and a little of the lc shake, 2 bites off of a jalepeno popper.

But let me tell you about this rockin' caprese salad....
... Insanely awesome Rio Briatti Fresh Mozzerella (those big soft round hunks you find in the expensive cheese section/ It SOAKS up the dressing like a sponge/slice into thin discs), Sal & Judy's Balsamic Vinegairette, and fresh tomatoes from the produce stand at the end of my road. *eyes rolling back in my head*...it was soooooooo good. (I'll add cucumber next time and maybe basil)

Excercise;
1 HOUR YOGA
38 min. light treadmill
Body motion ...full circuit...whew!

Dinner planned tonight:
Chicken Onion Soup. ..and more caprese salad.
Tea
and prolly a LC ice cream bar.

----------------------------------------
Dream: Really, nothing to worry about with the procedure. It's such a quick and simple solution to a terribly painful condition. Tubes are nuthin'...easy peezy. These days they may only have to do it once, unlike in my days when we had to do it every few yrs. I am 35 so I am sure the procedure has improved since back in my young yrs.

S-2 oz ham with 2 tsp chive flavored cream cheese/rolled up

WEDNESDAY - MARCH 10th

B - 2eggs, tea, 1cup coffee
L - Tea, Chicken breast, broccoli & creamy onion cheddar soup
(I threw one those yick flaxseed muffins in there too just to soak up the juice and fill me up a bit more, but I didn't want to taste that muffin) I still have two muffins left and I don't want to waste. I actually gave a few to the dog. He was not too impressed either.

1 hour Yoga
(first time making it 3 days in a row!)
20 min treadmill
Weights: Abs, hip abduc/adduc, leg press, chest fly, glutes, rear deltiod
Water

Dinner - Fajita salad, tea

-----------------------------------------------------------
Fit: I kinda stole those ideas (Ceviche and Caprese)from restaurants that I have been to recently and made my own low carb versions.
I live in New Orleans, so there are PLENTY of great places to eat here. You can find a hole in the wall cafe hidden in the back of town with the best food.
Of course I googled the dishes and sifted through other ways of making them too.
OH! I posted my version of Ceviche in the MWL LUNCH threads, and the Caprese in the MWL Veggie and Sides thread ...just for you...so go get em.

I love that honesty: "guts of a burrito from taco bell!"

Honestly, I'm having issues right now. Need to get myself out of a funk for not feeling worth being less weight than I am right now. Don't want to sabotage anyone, and I'll be back full force again soon. Just going through things right now and not having the alone time to deal with my poor self talk when working full time and in an online grad class--so busy I feel I cannot be perfectly focused just for right now. Part of the issue is that I had bilateral mastectomies 2 1/2 years ago and the reconstruction of my breasts is from redirected abdominal muscle and abdominal fat. As I lose weight I loose top inches too and I'm concerned I'll end up flat chested and misproportioned since it's not really breast tissue, not originally intended to be "up there." Plus I haven't been below 170 for a while and feeling a little unworthy? But I want to be healthy and fit and stop abusing my body with harmful carbs. I'll be ok in a few days, maybe it's part of the process. Help?

everyone is entitled to a few off days. Don't worry about it. I don't know how the flat chested stuff will work turn out, but keep in mind that you're healthy and happy. That's what counts!!

Keep your chin up.

SATURDAY MARCH 12th...had the date wrong yesterday

Fit...hang in there. I was in a funk not too long ago. Just remember the benefits and positivity of the weight loss. It truly outweighs your insecurities. You'll feel great! Keep going! Stay with it! You must be strong if you can work full time AND go to school AND get through those kinds of surgeries! Wow! You are inspirational.
I just hit the 'under 170' mark for the first time in 3 years. I can't stop now!
I am only 5ft1", so that weight on me is alot.
Anywho...keep on keeping on!

B- Scrambled eggs and chz and sausage, coffee, tea
L- Philly steak salad, chipotle dressing
S- a bunch of almonds, 1lc ice cream bar
D- steak and tea...I think...not sure yet

Exc:

THANK YOU Sara and Christy~Whew! I was concerned I'd pull you down too. I'm so happy for your results and now YOU are inspirational to me! I realized last night part of the problem is that my brother in law called me about 10 days ago asking advice about putting his dad on a ventilator due to sudden difficulty breathing and diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and pneumonia. I teach critical care and I explained how being on a vent may help his body rest as he recovers (with antibiotics and better oxygenation) from the pneumonia. We kept in touch every 3 to 4 days, and his dad, who was FINE and had no symptoms in his life previously, even until 2 1/2 wks ago, became very dependent on the vent due to the pulmonary fibrosis (ends up from previous asbestos exposure) though the pneumonia cleared up. The docs told my brother in law and family they'd done everything they could do, dad was alert/aware/but unable to get off of 100% oxygenation via ventilator. I told my brother in law how he'd probably pass fairly quickly due to kidney failure, heart weakening due to oxygenation problems (SAO2 was only 90-92% on 100% oxygen-normal is 94 to 100% on 21% oxygen!!). He passed away Friday and we are going to the funeral tomorrow. I'm so sad for my brother in law, but he said his dad made things right with the Lord a few years ago and was even baptized to show he'd made that decision, so he knew he was ready, though not timing wise willing to go this early. Meanwhile, another friend was diagnosed with a 2nd breast CA and wants me to be in the pity trench with her and I just cannot get in there--I'm supportive and optimistic, thankful and see that she is already post op cancer free again. I know the sadness of being numb in the chest area but I am alive and immensely blessed for great memories of not being numb for the previous 29 1/2 years of our 32 years of marriage. A song that helped me so much Summer 2007 is from Casting Crowns: I will praise You in this storm. Just so many things going on and to try to be diligent and not reward myself/take time for myself made things more temptingly worse. Thanks for listening. I think what I'll do starting Tues, is go back to week one and not focus so much on goal 140 lbs, but reset that goal for 157 for now. Make it a little more realistic and see how my inches feel at that time, then go from there. Cutting down to 157 is much healthier than where I was at 190, and certainly still a step in the right direction. If I can get to and maintain 157 for a while then I can aim for 140 eventually!

Love to check in and see what you're doing and read from you! Thanks again! Debbie

MONDAY --MARCH 15th

Well, poo poo. The scale at the gym said 172 today. How did that happen! Dern it.
Ok, trudging on. No biggie. Eating my words, 'Keep on Keepin' on'.

B - 1 coffee, a little bit of EAS shake (the cafe caramel is not so great, anyone agree?)Also, I think the Atkins shakes are better tasting and they are cheaper too. Why do you gals prefer the EAS? Am I missing something?
L - Grilled Tilapia w/salsa, a little bit of chili, Diet Lipton sparkling strawberry/kiwi tea YUM!..this stuff is the shiz nizzly niz with fiz!, hehee..comes in berry too!
snack...mozzerella soaked in balsamic vinaigrette
D - planning on chicken and veggies.

Excercise:
45 min Yoga

Usually when I say I plan to go back at night....well, I never usually make it.
TONIGHT however...I HAVE to get some weights and cardio in. We'll see.

Thin, you just need to stay positive and yes, it helps to keep the mindset that you are the supportive one, so keep on that track with your friend. Also, I am sorry to hear of the death in your family.
A new weight goal may help but more importantly make yourself say "This is the way I eat"..and that is THAT! It took me awhile before I truly adopted and accepted this as a WOE and not just a diet to lose a few lbs.

I am no longer focusing on the goal but training myself to the WOE and the excercise and the lbs will follow...slowly but surely....they will follow.

Thin Tastes Better - Don't worry feeling you're the only one logging here. It's Spring break here, maybe for others too. I'm sick today with a sinus infection and have been lying around feeling yucky. I took Nyquil last pm and slept til 11:30am! I think it's getting better now (4:15 pm) and I'll be productive and able to get back into my routine tomorrow. Part of this yuckiness may be carb overload with my recent emotional roller coaster. I have to seriously have a different way of coping. It's one thing to know it, it's another thing to really take time for myself and do it when in grad school and SO focused on getting good grades. You are giving me ideas, Thin, about other meals and snacks, it's real and I thank you for continuing to log in!

Hey! (A little wake-up call for you...)

Your value as a person doesn't come from what your chest looks like!! Your intelligence, your personality, your character, your sense of humor....all of those things are the IMPORTANT things, and they don't work if you're not breathing! It's okay to put yourself FIRST and focus on your health!! When I'm "off," the LAST thing I ever think about is what I'm doing to my body by not treating it right, but that is the FIRST thing we should think about... our poor bodies. Nobody's going to come to your funeral, see you lying in your casket and say, "Wow, her chest looks great!"

At least, not unless you're Dolly Parton.

Besides, if you get skinny and lose your boobs in the process, you can be a supermodel. Ha ha...

Okay, hope you don't mind a little bit of "straight talk" (as my mother likes to call it). If your head is anything like mine at times, you can't trust a single thing it tries to tell you!!!

When you think about it, the problem isn't so much that we have imperfect days (cuz who doesn't?) but that we don't get right back on.... And you've gotten right back on!! Keep workin' it!

Thanks Kellee and Christy, That's what I love about this support group! Real support! I put a post on the March Madness thread too that shows my turnaround. I really needed this Spring break!

Christy, We have Dillons (also some towns have Krogers) and it's the Krogers brand Carbmasters yogurt. It has about 12 gm of protein and is very low in carbs (about 3 or 4). Multiple flavors and you get used to the difference. They are very doable! (And on sale about 50cents each!) Thanks for the tip about the flaxseed tortillas from Walmart. I won't be ready for those for a few wks but now I look forward to that!!! Would also be great with laughing cow cheese, lettuce, and turkey!


I'd gained 2 1/2 lbs on Monday alone when out of state and we'd gone to a Chinese restaurant, so you may be right about all the sodium and corn starch, etc.

S-I had a vanilla EAS shake that I put in blender w/ 1 1/2 tsp of powdered diet orange jello and 5 to 6 ice cubes (made into an orange julius! Got the recipe from my MWL clinic)
D-planning to have pot roast and maybe some sour cream on it

Correction: Mymistake: Its not flaxseed tortillas...It is Lavish Bread LC Tortillas. Sorry I just looked at the pkg.

We don't have Kroger here in the swamps, so I'll have to keep hunting for lc yogurt.
That orange powder & vanilla sounds like a 'dreamcycle'...I'll have to try that for sure!!!

Just got back from the gym...did my body motion circuit!

THURSDAY - Burritos, Water, Messy Dog and Johnny

Breakfast: I made a homemade Taco Bell Burrito.
Spicy ground beef, onions, bell peppers, cheese, taco bell sauce, lettuce, jalepeno, sour cream, Grilled Lavish Bread LC tortilla (1/2 the tortilla is still big enough to make a good size taco, each tortilla is 4 carbs...so half that!)
Deeelish! I took a PICTURE!

oh and water.

Not going to the gym today, taking the afternoon off and taking MYSELF on a date to see ALICE IN WONDERLAND! I'll see the 3d version and sit in the middle of the theatre in the middle of the day (with NO kids to distract me and ask me to take them to the bathroom or get popcorn in the middle of the show)...mmmuuuuuhahahaha! Gotta get my 'Johnny Depp' on'.

For Lunch, I'll order a messy and fully dressed theatre hot dog and eat it with a fork & knife without the bun....and water.

Dinner: possibly another burrito..hehe...and water
Really going to try to drink lots of water today...lots and lots of water

Check with your clinic. You can over exercise for the calories you are given causing your weight loss to slow. I am not saying this is the case for you, I am just suggesting you bring it up with your counselor. Good luck!

Actually, I don't have a counselor. But honestly the excercise just 'sounds' like alot. The Yoga class I attend is 'gentle yoga' and at least 20 minutes of the class is relaxation and breathing techniques. The poses are not intense at all. Then, the treadmill I do is so low impact and just barely gets me heart rate going. My trainer suggested a little light cardio before going into my weight circuit.
So I don't think over excercise is the problem....actually I wish I moved around more than I do since most the rest of my days are sitting in front of the tube..bored out of my wits.... *sigh*
Is is possible (since muscle weighs more than fat) ..that I am maybe matching new muscle to the fat I am losing? I know that sounds stupid...? I just don't see how I am eating low carb for 50 days now with very little hiccups AND excercise pretty regularly and the scale is moving so darn slow. *ssiiiigggghh*

Your before and afters are impressive btw!

So hard on the immune system!
