Lucky I used to buy from upscale consignment shops. And jeans from goodwill . I would drop sizes too quickly to afford paying a lot for clothes..

Thanks Joyful! I did end up finding 2 pairs of pants on super sale so between those and my long skirts and dresses I should be able to muddle through the winter. I still need to find a pair of jeans or two so I use your suggestions!

Not sure your current size but Costco usually has decent jeans up to size 16. Also, I personally would not buy jeans from Walmart but I would buy other pants or slacks there if you can find them. Both are significantly less than I have seen elsewhere.

Still here!

My next dr appt is Monday so I will have an update for everyone then. Made it through Thanksgiving no issues - except for the first time I felt like I ate 2 bites too many. It was odd since I've been so mindful for so long. Just a reminder to myself that I need to STAY mindful and not lose focus. Definitely don't want to make that a habit. Besides feeling uncomfortable I don't want to stretch anything and start overeating!

This Friday marks 14 weeks of being in ketosis. I am not weighing myself, so I will find out if I have lost any weight next time I go to the doctor.

Hi Jesse, ,Maryposa ,thanks for the compliment.

Maryposa . - i know I'm doing the WOE and eventually it will come off. I used to weigh every morning but. I find that not worrying about the scale helps me . . Lol the up and down drove me crazy!! . .i hope that you are rewarded with a whoosh for all your efforts. I know your clothes must be falling off !!

Well it's been a rollercoaster week. My whole family has been sick and I'm feeling like I might be catching something too. My appt got rescheduled until next month so I jumped on the scale at the gym. I normally don't do that because I like to get weighed on the same scale everytime for consistancy. Anyhoo - I am down another 10lbs (around there - give or take since it's a different scale). Still happy with my progress - DOWN IS GOOD. I tried some caesar salad and it was great! Made sure to eat the chicken first but I missed salad. Could only eat a bit but that's fine with me.

In other news - I have been bad about remembering to take my vitamins everyday which is just dumb. I'm a grown woman you would think I would remember to take my vitamins. I don't know what happened in my brain where I have a mental block about taking them - I was so good for months and then BLAM I sit here 2 days later and think "Crap - I didn't take my vitamins!" I would blame the sickness and crazy week but this started the week before so no excuse. As I type this I'm thinking "Guess what knucklehead - you didn't take them this morning either" DOHHHHHH! Yes, I will take them when I get home and start packing a 5 day supply to take to work since so when I get out of my mental fog they are waiting for me.

Have a great day everyone and thanks for checking in!

PCP visit

My surgery f/u visit had to be rescheduled but I did have my quarterly PCP visit and everything looks good. Down to 216 lbs according to their scale. Haven't been under 200 in DECADES so I'm excited to hit onederland soon!

Been sick on and off for weeks so I was bad about eating anything except some soup, hot tea with honey (for the cough), and NyQuil so I could rest. Also bad about taking my meds and vitamins. Did get lab work done and was totally honest with my doc about not keeping up on meds - my numbers still looked good! Not great, but hey I'll take 'em. So, back on my meds and vitamins and will check in with her again in 3 months after new lab work. I'm hoping we can decrease the meds the next visit (fingers crossed).

Hope all is well in your world and I'll be stopping by again soon!

Hey sorry to hear you are not feeling well , yes I too lose my appetite when I feel ill . It won't be long before you are in onederlad . Happy for you .

I want to be able to exercise and do house work etc. All the things I have loathed in the past. You don't appreciate the things you can do until you can't do them any more, My Dr has to review my ct scan before I can do anything right now. , the earliest he can see me is this Tuesday geez Louise .

Wow Joyful - what a mess! I hope your situation improves soon. Thankfully I am feeling better every day... looking forward to feeling 100% soon. Been taking my meds and my vitamins like a good girl so that should help :-)
