Your recent post about over eating protein and the 3 -'09 posts linked to it really helped me out. I was virtually zero carb but no movement on the fat at my waist. Dropping protein from 150 to 70-90 grams a day got me a few pounds and another size lower.

So, Stargazey, Thank you.
You're welcome, CalRon! I didn't see this until today, but it's great to know that my hard-won knowledge about too much protein has helped somebody else!!!

Hi Kissa,

Nice to see you back. I was afraid you left because I called you a "grizzled old veteran". I kid, I kid.

It would be nice to see hundreds of maintainers posting, but I suppose they now have different priorities.

Lol, you couldn't upset me CalRon, I am not that sort of gal. I found I had rather more threads to respond to than was strictly wise so I did cut back, probably too far!

I agree it would be nice to see some more maintainers around. I suggested we put the odd invitation on the Main Lobby now and again, but it got shouted down at the time.

What do the rest of you think?

back from my trip. I didn't diet and the scale is right back where it was before I dropped some weight before the trip. Back on track today.

weight 122.6. body weight on scale lower. I am sure there is a whole lot of fluid shifting with carb increase. I am not worried.

My biggest challenge is eating one high carb day a week and then going back to low carb. I eat carbs on my long run days.

Kissa....wine...maybe that's my problem! I only drink it on the weekends, but maybe too much. What do you think? I didn't think wine was a big deal!

I have a small glass of wine daily. Just one, about 6 or 7 oz. It has not made a difference. So have at it Fischdeb.

120.6

I am happy with this. would prefer 118 or less but better then I was last year at this time. I was a good 6 pounds heavier after the winter. I always called 122 my goal. I am happier at 118. I am close and I am losing without dieting in any way.
