Hi everyone! I am joining in on M&E...I did it the two weeks before my wedding in Sept and had great success, I will start tomorrow. When I do it, I do eggs, meat and I allow hot sauce, butter, and mayo. No cheese (I cant just eat a little bit of it, lol).

Hi everyone

Geez I can't believe I've been away for so long! I'm really glad to see the thread still rolling.

Well I'm lucky to be at 140 after weeks upon weeks of eating bad! I will finally have my very own kitchen (YAY) next week. I ordered a really nice programable crockpot and just live up the street from work, so I'll always be close to healthy low carb foods. I'll definitely be doing a serious version of M&E like I was doing when I started this thread, just to get the junk cravings out of my system.

Even tho I haven't really gained much weight, I feel much bigger and uncomfortable just in this last week!
I'm ashamed to say what I've been eating everyday. Lots of fast food, which I never really liked anyway. I find myself ordering way more than I need to eat so I clearly have an issue with food!

I plan on posting here every day pretty soon for support and accountability.
I miss you guys!
It's too easy to fall behind once you get to goal. I've done it before and refuse to this time!

Thanks for reading my rant

And welcome new comers, and WOOOHOOO for eveyone sicking with it!

Whoohoo! Sounds like you dodged a bullet!

I'm 171 today despite the tomato protest yesterday. I've been really trying to just stick with M & E, and I've been good all day, but I did have a very small handful of green beans with my chicken. I can't fry fresh green beans in bacon for my family and not sample my work. I've really gotta be more strict with myself. :/

I gotta say I'm really happy for you Snoangel! Being so close to home that you can follow low carb is awesome! And nothing beats home-made food anyway!

Glad you are back and settled into your own place. I love using the crockpot, especially for pork loin in chicken broth and chicken breasts in chicken broth with seasonings...YUM!

Can't wait to see your upcoming successes!

Thank you that is very sweet. It is also humbling to think that I inspire someone from just doing the things I do.

Thanks!

I'm starting today!

I am starting m/e today. I have been doing a fast 5 style of eating (basically only eating dinner) during the week but then I overdo it on the weekends...too much food and too many carbs. Actually since the holidays I've been out of control and I can't fit into my clothes! SO...it is time to get serious and drop some weight so I'm not going to work in sweat pants! I need to post to create some accountability! I've hardboiled some eggs to eat at work throughout the day and tonight will probably fry some eggs and bacon. Yum. I hope this works!! You guys are amazing!

Start weight 2/4: 116

I started to develop hypoglycemia over the last 2 days. It's a new experience for me. It's not bad so it isn't a crisis or anything.

My Post-prandial blood sugar is usually in the 80s, so I am curious as to why I'm going hypo all of a sudden. It isn't terrible. But it is a little worrisome; probably because I know so little about it.

Every article I read about hypoglycemia says I'm going to gain weight. How the heck could someone gain weight from low blood sugar?

If my pancreas is pumping out too much insulin, what's causing it? 'Cause I can't fathom a meal of 3 eggs and a strip of bacon would do that.

I don't know much about hypoglycemia AT ALL, but that does seem confusing. I don't know how someone could gain weight from low blood sugar! Your weight is going the right way right now...

I'm bummed myself because I'm up a pound from yesterday. What the? I did have cheese though...so it wasn't strict m/e. I guess it was that or I overdid it somehow.

2/4: 116
2/5: 117

I'm trying to decide if I want to do this again today or not...

I'd stick with it for another day. It could be sodium in the cheese, too. I've heard people who do egg fasts and even water fasts can sometimes go up a pound for the first day - That has happened to me at least twice.

Thanks!! After staying at 171 all of January, I'm happy to be in the "160's" finally!

I kind of blew it today though, (sugar-free chocolate jello and cantaloupe...) so I don't know how far that will hold me back. But I'm fasting tomorrow for 24 hours for routine blood work anyway, so maybe that will offset any damage I did today. *crosses fingers*

Morning All!

Day 1 was a success! I'm surprised and happy that I was able to get my hunger under control so quickly with M&E.

Day 1: -1.8

Menu today:
B: scrambled eggs with co and butter, coffee
L: chicken breast
D: boiled eggs

I also drink coffee all day long with non dairy creamer.

Hope you're all having a great day!

Ohhh yes! You take the cook n serve sugar-free pudding (made by JELL-O), cook it, but also put in 1 tbsp HWC and 1 serving of cream cheese, then after it's all mixed and cooked and smooth, you give the concoction to family members, and then save a little for yourself. You mix that little remainder with MORE HWC and beat it until it is brown whipped cream and you get this fatty, fluffy dream that feels like you're eating a cloud. ^_^

But the CALORIES. The calories are scary!
