Ring The Bells

I broke through to 'onederland'! I started this WOE in 2011 and lost over 50 lbs, but stalled out around 205 for over a year. Something clicked again recently and I've been able to stick to lower protein, higher fat ratios, and the scale is moving again! I set my goal weight high because I couldn't imagine ever weighing under 200 again, now I may set it lower if this keeps working! Thanks to all you inspirational LCF members for sharing your day to day struggles and triumphs. I couldn't have done it without you.

Congratulations and thank you for sharing!!! I have been doing the WOE for a year and have had very slow weight loss and have been at a stand still for quite awhile. So your post gives me hope and gives me encouragement to stay on plan.

Thanks for your kind comments, everyone! When I started this WOE, my mom, who is a TOPS leader, said 'You'll have to eat that way for the rest of your life!', like that was a bad thing! My dad and mom eat according the the ADA recommendations for diabetics, and don't lose anything, in fact my dad, the diabetic, keeps getting bigger. I am 2 1/2 years into this WOE, and don't miss most of the food i used to eat. One thing that gets me is the smell of birthday cake. We celebrate at least a dozen birthdays throughout the year, and I find that if I taste even one lick of icing, I lose it, and end up eating cake for days, or as long as it lasts! The last one I ate was for my birthday, my daughter brought me the cutest penguin cake, and I ate the whole thing myself. That was the end of Dec. and I realized that I just can't even taste cake/icing anymore, then I won't lose control like that. I have made LC cakes that are good, but find I can do without and don't need it. I am finding with cutting back on protein serving size and cutting back on veggie serving size, and adding fat is working a wonder on my appetite.
