Worse, I think, this time than back in September when I started NK. And back then I was well over the NK range of ~50g max carbs a day.

Weird.
Sorry to hear you have been sickish. I have been wondering how cheating would affect one. The first 4 weeks were so bad I have no desire to go thru that again.

We carved pumpkins tonight. We used to make candy apples on our carve night but tonight we had sausage balls and cheese dip with pork rinds. They all loved it. I ate too much but stuck to LC.

Ugh so I had the chicken wings. They weren't really breaded, but probably dredged in flour. I doubt it was many carbs at all, but I'm also trying to avoid gluten. The biggest problem with it all is that it wasn't very satisfying. Blah! I'll have a fat bomb later and call it a night.

Jut getting ready for bed. Hoping for no leg cramps tonight. I am taking magnesium, and potassium, adding pinches of sea salt when I walk by the counter and I am drinking a cup of Chicken broth with added salt before I go to bed. I took an extra mag and potassium tonight. I have been drinking plenty of water, but have been on my feet more than usual, more walking so maybe that is making them worse.

No foot board

Stay safe if you are getting smacked by the storms. Google LC smores before your power goes out.
Everyone is acting crazy around here. The grocry stores are a madhouse! I'm like, c'mon people; it's going to be like 2 days. No one is going to starve. It's much more important to make sure people stay safe as it's going to be a bad one. In my part of PA, we really never get emergency-type weather, so we're not used to stuff like this.

I went to the grocery store last night. Good thing I wasn't looking for peanut butter, bread, or canned soups, as those shelves were BARE! It's starting to get a little breezy here, but no rain so far. I think the worst of it is supposed to be tonight and tomorrow. My company already emailed us to say we can work from home at least Monday and Tuesday (assuming we have power!).

I bought a lot of candy for trick-or-treaters, but now I have no idea how Halloween is going to turn out!

I made ricotta pancakes this morning, and they were REALLY good! The entire recipe only has 3g carbs, and they're MUCH yummier than the almond flour pancakes I tried yesterday. They already have 19g fat, and then I put lots of butter on top.

In making the pancakes, I finally had to admit I really need a new frying pan, as mine doesn't sit flat at all (and it's not the stove, as it's a flat-top electric). Since I have a coupon, I'm off to Bed Bath & Beyond before the rain starts...

OH, and I haven't been tracking my actual macros or calories since I feel crappy and am consuming multiple items where I'd be just estimating, but here's how yesterday shaped up:
  • almond flour pancakes with butter and a little Walden Farms syrup
  • Famous Dave's: chopped pork with melted cheese, beef brisket, and a couple bites of green beans
  • peanut butter pie filling (peanut butter, whipped hwc, cream cheese, and a little stevia) with extra creamy whipped cream
  • Atlanta Bread Company: roasted chicken caesar salad (no croutons)
  • vanilla coconut bark

WOE: whatever works
Good Morning!

I'm back from vacation that hubby & I took for our anniversary. Have to admit that I wasn't good at all. I didn't even try to stay on plan. I have no intentions of stepping on the scale until next Monday.... My bad, but I did it to myself.

The good news is I have already spent the morning catching up on this fast moving thread and cooking for the week. Breakfast will be bacon/egg & coffee with CO. For lunches I made a HUGE pot of sausage/kale soup. Dinners will be a mix of grilled ribeyes and porksteaks with compound butter. Protein shakes available as a back up.

East Coast peeps: please be careful.....thinkin of you the next couple of days

Hey gang.
Jilly, please post or direct me to the ricotta pancake recipe, I don't care much for the almond flour ones either.

Welcome back Harmsway, glad you had a wonderful time and are in the mindset to get right back on track. You know if you don't do it right away, then it will soon be 1, then 2, then 3 weeks of "going to start again tomorrow".

I slept really late this morning, have had a really busy week and lack of sleep due to those darn leg cramps.

No cramps last night, I had prepared better and also eaten crab legs last night which are high in sodium. Anyway, sure felt good to have a good nights rest. Legs are really sore from several nights of cramps.

I feel like cooking today, going to through a big pot of chicken on to boil, part for the broth and part for the chicken of course.

Not sure what else will be cooked up!

Good morning ALL

I have some catching up to do on reading here. My phone keeps kicking me off

I hope all of you with the storm heading your way stay safe and warm!!

I'm back at 144 so it was just water weight... I haven't been able to use the bathroom in days. I even took some Dulcolax and nothing.
Once my fiber arrives in the mail tomorrow, I should be back to normal again. Just so uncomfortable and I find myself being a lil grumpy.

So my average from the last 7 days doesn't look too great...
Calories 1,011
Fat 75
Pro 51
Carb 15
Some days I was as low as 800 calories. But I have my appetite back now

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!!!!

Good morning all......Deborah and Jilly....please stay safe and keep warm and indoors. I hope the predictions are a little "off", but they seem sure it will be a doozie with lots of rain and wind. Hope you live at the top of a hill!! (not in the gully bottom/ravine)

HarmsWay....glad you and hubby enjoyed yourselves on your vacation and you're ready to bite the bullet and get back on track.

Hooray to Buffy for no leg cramps last night. Excellent news!!!!

Major Red....very interesting to me that the coffee didn't taste good to you. Maybe the smoking was masking your taste buds? I find that it's not "working for me" these days either (my one cup), so I'm back to decaf chai tea with HWC and MCT oil. No stomach upset this morning.....interesting.

My weekly weigh/measure was not good news. Up 1.6# for the week (it has been creeping back up, and so have my pants size...up a size this week). My ketones remained at .8 which is good and my glucose went from 98 to 107 which is not good. Measurements were either the same (a couple places) or else I gained 1/4 - 3/8" which was not good.

I did start lifting weights this week (Mon/Wed/Fri) and I"m hoping that has caused the increase on the scale and the increase on the measuring tape. But bodyfat %age is also up...about 4% this last week.

So....please, oh please, , let me just be one of the freaks that takes 6 months for the body to catch up and start doing what is expected!

Good news, DD hit a new low on the scales this AM, and surgery DD is now on board and she has lost about 3 lbs this week. She only has about 10 to lose so it will probably be a little slower for her but glad she is on board. Mom is still holding at 196.? this week, somedays up a little but never below that 196. But, health progress I know is good and that is my biggest concern. Continue to see it in how my clothes fit, I am pulling out things now from last fall and winter and they all fit better than they did when I put them away.

Liz, hoping for some movement at your house! I get a little backed up on this WOE too, and when I do go, it isn't all that much. Does that mean my body is using the food I am eating for fuel, or, probably just means that I was eating so much roughage before that it made for a lot more movement and bulk.

Shelly, you know getting back into working out is so good for you and yes, it probably is responsible for the up numbers you are seeing, but, it doesn't make it any less frustrating for you, like me, hoping every morning for a new low number to creep in on the scales and nope, not yet.

Come up for air Red. Btw, took my DD's to see Kathy Griffin last night at that local casino near us and the first thing they said as we walked thought the doors was "oh, yuck, the smoke smell is AWFUL in here!" Both non-smokers, they just hate the smell, so think of how much better your house, your car, your body, your clothes, your hair now will smell!!! Same for you Liz! on not smoking.

Just fixed 2 friend XL eggs and 1 3/4 oz bacon ends and pieces, ate the eggs and could only get down about 1 oz of the bacon, toooo full.

Shelley, Do you test blood sugar every morning? And other times of day, too? I am always lost when I see what type II's are doing/saying because it is so different. Like, sometimes I'll see a type II say something like "I started low carb and my sugars went down a hundred points!" I think there are very few type I's that don't fluctuate at least that much every single day. And it would not be at all unusual for me to wake up between 60 and 80 six days a week but 300 to 400 on the seventh without any obvious change in behavior. I guess when they say that they must be referring to their fasting b/s. Anyway, if you were 107 all the time, I think that would be a pretty healthy place to be, but I assume if your fasting is 107, then it is assumed that the rest of the time you're higher. BUT when I eat low carb, my numbers are so much flatter than if I don't. It brings the variation down hugely. So I wonder if that's true for you, so that the slightly high morning bs may not mean what it would if you were eating the SAD, kwim?

I think I'm going to start reporting what I eat here like Jillybean is doing. That way you guys can tell me if I'm doing something nutty and I can have something to look back on even on those days that I'm not doing so well with the record-keeping (I have a hard time with that, record-keeping burnout I think). I'm going to start with yesterday because I managed to gain TWO POUNDS! I know that a lot of people can vary by that much just from water, but when I lost last time, I NEVER saw an upward jump of two pounds, ever. Unless I strayed from my plan, I always stayed even or went down. So here goes:

large iced coffee with hwc
large bowl of chicken escarole soup
2 fat bombs
small Cesar salad w no croutons
boneless buffalo chicken w/ blue cheese
tea w hwc

I also had a bucket of diet grape soda early in the day that was kind of blissful. I hope it wasn't that! I heard a story on NPR about a study saying that it looks like diet sodas are actually not bad for weight loss after all (had the same effect as water on appetite/behavior, whereas sugary sodas increased appetite/eating later), so I'm just going for it!

I went out and bought some donut pans to try this recipe for low carb bagels. I'm excited!

Glad you had a crampless good night last night! I don't think I can post a link, but here's the recipe (I'd like to give credit where credit is due, so I'll just say her screen name on the other site is 143MCW - you can find the recipe if you Google search for that name and ricotta waffles):

1/4 cup skim ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 packets Splenda

Of course, I used whole milk ricotta, not skim, and I used stevia instead of Splenda. The recipe is actually for waffles, but I don't own a waffle iron, and other comments on the recipe said they'd used the same recipe for pancakes, so that's what I did. The directions said to beat the eggs for a minute on high to make them nice and fluffy before adding the other ingredients, but I didn't do that - I just whisked everything together by hand.

Does the scale differentiate between water and fat, or is it just split between "lean" and fat?

Type 2s, of course, vary widely in what glucose numbers they strive for (as I'm sure type 1s do as well). I've met some who are happy to be below 140, some who aim for 120, and then those who strive for "normal," which is typically defined as fasting below 100 and below 120 by 2 hours post prandial. There is some data that links levels above 140 as causing damage to the body. Personally, when I was testing regularly, I want to be below 100 all the time. The major difference, I think, is that not all type 2s are on insulin, so lows are less common. When I was dealing with my type 2, I never had a single reading below 80 (and even being in the 80s at all was rare). I was only on metformin, which usually does not cause lows since it does not alter insulin production from the pancreas. I would imagine type 1s have to be more careful about possibly going too low so may err on the side of caution and be happy with slightly higher numbers (like a fasting of 107, for example).

And then, of course, there's the fact that home glucose meters can have up to a 20% margin of error, so a reading of 100 could actually be anywhere from 80-120

LOL Deborah! Everyone is freaking out heh. Same thing happens around here during the winter when we get about 1 inch of snow.

Don't forget to stock up on batteries and maybe grab a coleman stove and some fuel for it.

Yeah, it is weird with the coffee taste. Nothing else seems to be affected taste-wise so far. And it is some Gevalia medium roast ground coffee that taste funky. So strange. I got it because I didn't care much for the taste of some 8 o'Clock coffee that didn't taste good. But the Gevalia tasted great the first couple of days.

Weigh-in 10282012

Weigh-in this morning... ... ... 192.2!

Wow, a huge bump from yesterday's 189.2 so I guess it is just one of those weird readings. I'm guessing it is weird water weight related stuff since I exited NK for several days. I wonder what tomorrow will look like?

Yes Red, after growing up in the midwest and living through lots of winter storms, I get so amused at how people react to what little "winter" weather we have, har har har har har. Although, the roads really are a mess, our state does not have the equipment to handle bad weather plus a lot of people here don't know how to drive on bad roads and with loads of traffic, it can be dangerous.

heh yeah we are the most dangerous things on the road in inclimate weather.

When my team was in upstate New York right at the tail end of the Blizzard of '96, we were all Texas boys the 3 of us, we were driving white knuckled down the road while all the natives were honking and flying by us lol.

Yeah it's been different for me in that department also since starting low carb. I have always had tummy issues and have tried just about every kind of cleanse, fiber, and laxative out there. Well 3 years ago while researching online I came across a cleansing plan that had thousands of great reviews from people saying they never felt better and they were "passing" things that they would have never thought was inside their bodies (parasites and worms). So I bought it and completed 2 months and was AMAZED at what came out of my body gross I know! But to think some stuff is actually stuck in our intestines for years is mind boggling for me.
Well I felt great after and lost a few inches on my belly from all the waste.
I just recently completed another 2 months and felt great and clean inside. I didn't pass the gross stuff like the first time because I have been using the fiber for a long time now.
Its the ONLY supplement that's worked for me, it's a blessing in a bottle and I'm suffering from running out of it. I won't make that mistake again!

Great to here DD is on board and isn't it great to be so comfortable in your clothes!?

Jilly...to answer about my scale. The Tanita is in "athlete mode" since I"m back at the gym and that gives me a lower bodyfat percentage than the "reg." readings. It's not helping! Anyway, what I do is take my "low weight" in the AM before food/shower, and then take my bodyfat readings before bed. I take the weight and multiply it times the bodyfat to get my pounds in fat, then deduct that from my total weight to get my lean weight (all nighttime readings). So, that's how I know that I am losing lean muscle mass and gaining fat weight. Frustrating. It also has a reading for %age of water and that is just bizarre. I'm dehydrated big time according to the booklet and I drink from 10-12 glasses of water a day! I am not dehydrated!

Buffy....congratulations to your DD and having both daughters doing this now. Sure makes it more fun to have someone else doing it with you!

Major Red....doing good on the macros and happy you had your CO tonight...and I guess the coffee this AM w/o the CO was okay??? tomorrow you should be back to your beloved concoction!

Looks like 3 of us have gained weight with the weigh-in's this morning....hmmmm tomorrow is the full moon...wonder if that has anything to do with it?!

I'm really gonna try to eat more this week. I just made a bunch of little bit size cream cheese clouds to snack on.

Hey All,

Just hunkering down for the bad weather here. If you don't hear from me for the next couple of days, you'll know we lost power. Something about huddling indoors during bad weather makes me want to eat a lot! But at least pretty much everything I have in the house is on plan stuff.

All my east coast friends, stay safe! And to all my other friends, stay healthy!

About ready to go to bed, just finished my cup of homemade chicken broth. Boy, it was good. I added 1/2 lb butter to the soup pot as my chicken was simmering.

If I don't see any loss again tomorrow, I think I will try again to keep my calories below 1400, it is hard to do that and I was hoping it wasn't going to be necessary but I have stayed about the same all month.
