TOM is right around the corner for me too! I usually gain up to 5 pounds the week before, so I'm trying to think of anything I can do to prevent that from happening this time. lol All I can think of is to drink tons of water. Years ago didn't they used to have a pms pill that helped with bloating? I wish that still existed. lol

FYI - I took magnesium in the middle of the day and I could have laid my head down on my desk at work and slept. I vowed to never do that again. Horrible trying to keep myself awake in the middle of the afternoon. I haven't felt like that since I was pregnant!

Thank you! You are doing great too! I cook my eggs in coconut oil and I love it and I swear it has made all the difference in keeping things regular in the bathroom! I haven't tried it on my skin yet but I heard it's really good for that too.

Up a full pound today. Inexplicably. I suspect I had too much salt yesterday, and pms symptoms are probably the culprit. Drinking tons of water today, watching my sodium, and taking a pamprin tonight so that hopefully the scale will go back down tomorrow.

I wish you luck!!

I am not going to weigh myself daily anymore until TOM is done and over with. It hasn't begun just yet but the mood swings, bloat and cravings are awful. I can't throw on top of all that being upset over the scale, too.

See you guys in a little over a week!

After a few days, your appetite will be gone. Don't give up!

Soooo true jenericstewart! I had been battling WEEKS (if not months) of uncontrollable hunger and cravings, and I was amazed that it only took a few days of M&E to get my hunger under control. I'm on day 10 now and STILL not hungry except at meal times, and that's even with PMS which usually makes me ravenous!

LOVE M&E!

Back down today so drinking tons of water helped yesterday. I'm starting to get sick so I'm trying to battle that now before it hits in full force. I have chicken broth on the stove now with tons of garlic simmering in it. And I'm having apple cider vinegar twice a day too. Any other home remedies you guys can suggest? Besides honey because I don't want to add any carbs into my diet.

Menu today:
B: 4 scrambled eggs, coffee

Vitamin D - the wonder drug. Since using it 2 years ago neither my husband nor I have been sick despite plenty of exposure. We normally take 1000 units daily and 5000 if we're around sickies. If we think we might be coming down with something, like this weekend, we'll take a 5000 several times a day.

Hi all,
I just created an account on LCF specifically so I could join in with this thread...I have been reading threads on here for a long time though! Hope it's ok

Well you have all inspired me to start the meat/egg fast after seeing how well everyone is doing... so here's hoping I can break this 10 week stall once and for all

It's my first day today and I seem to be going ok...hopefully that stubborn scale will have budged a little in the morning.

Will check back in to see how everyone is going tomorrow. Good luck all

Cheers.

Thanks for the welcome Becky! Am going to start logging my losses I think (to keep me motivated!) We use the metric system here but will convert my kg to pounds like everyone else

Day 1: -1.1

Thank goodness there was some movement on the scales. Drank heaps of water yesterday too. Was only moderately hungry but I think it was more in my head for desiring dairy products and green vegetables (that's just a bit sad really, having cravings for vegetables!!!). Have woken up super hungry today but hopefully once I have breakfast it will sort out.

FatFat how long do you stay on the fast for or is this your WOE?? You have amazing willpower BTW, I don't think I could last as long as you have so far!!! Also, do you limit the number of eggs you eat in a day or do you just go according to your level of hunger? Yesterday I ended up eating 2 eggs in each meal x 3 times (B,L,D) and also had some beef mince (ground beef in USA I think??) at lunch and a steak with dinner. Too much meat??

Have a good day all...
