PURE STILLMAN'S QWL CHALLENGE
 
This will be a thread for those who want to do Stillman's in its purest form. Whether you want to do it for an indefinite amount of time, or for only a few days, you are welcome to join. To see the rules, please visit the sticky on QWL.

Here we can post our menus, how long we plan on doing it, and what our goals are (with time limits, if desired).

I will use myself as an example.

20th May: Starting weight (on Stillman's): 216 lbs
Goal 1: 28th May: 210 lbs
Goal 2: 5th June: 205 lbs
Goal 3: 14th June: 200 lbs
Goal 4: 22nd June: 195 lbs
Goal 5: 29th June: 190 lbs
Goal 6: 6th July: 185 lbs
Goal 7: 14th July: 180 lbs
Goal 8: 22nd July: 175 lbs
Goal 9: 31st July: 170 lbs
:kicking:FINAL GOAL WEIGHT:kicking:: 165 lbs

I plan on staying on Stillman's until I'm under 185 lbs, anything under that is a healthy BMI range for me.

The weekend of 29th/30th I may not be able to do strict Stillman's but I will continue all of June.

Good luck to everyone who joins!

:hiya: Ok I will take up the Challenge :D

I have been doing "almost" a strict Stillman's since March so I will fine tune what I am eating and post my menu at the end of each day.

My personal challenges will be to get enough water in every day, remember my vitamins and get some form of exercise done each day for at least 30 minutes.

Sharon

Welcome Sharon! Were you 256 when you started in March? If so, WOW! Stillman's is really working for you. Keep it up! I'll post my menus at the end of the day too.

Yep - 256. I weigh every morning so I see the weight coming off in SMALL incriments but when I look at the total in just 2+ months it seems pretty amazing.

Now I KNOW if I were exercising more that number would be bigger and I would be SMALLER :rolleyes:

kamills 05-21-2010 11:36 AM

Now that's what I'm talking about. Those kind of results in that amount of time is incredible. I'm interested to see what you eat every day. Do you count calories?

No, I do not count calories. I stop eating when I am full. I try to have 5-6 small meals a day.

Of course! :welcome: The more the merrier.

Meek75 05-23-2010 12:51 PM

Hi Ladies, I would like to join. I will be starting tomorrow for 14 days - then I will see where I end up from there.

I hope to lose 10 pounds during this time. I don't know if that is asking too much - but we shall see. I will be spending today planning my meals and preparing my foods. I will check in daily.

Have a wonderful day :)

:welcome: Meek. Glad to see another recruit! You can definitely lose 10 lbs in 14 days on Stillman's.

Menu for today was the same as yesterday:

B: 1 boiled egg
L: 3 boiled eggs w/ mustard. Chicken broth.
D: Chicken broth and 220 gms chicken breast
Liquids: 4.5 litres water. 1 litre diet coke. 2 cups tea.

Total cals: 673

Weight was less this morning, but will log it tomorrow.

mmyers80 05-23-2010 03:06 PM

Thanks! I need to go to the grocery store to make sure I have the right foods to eat for tomorrow.

Kamills: Do you eat the same thing everyday or mix it up? I noticed you have chicken broth also, so going to get some of that too. Should i get a certain brand/kind?


Long term I have about 150 pounds to lose. I always attempt to do LC and fail miserably. Im hoping being in this group and help me with my willpower to stick to it.

kamills 05-23-2010 03:32 PM

Myers: I usually stick to similar foods. I'm not actually that keen on red/dark meats. I love chicken and seafood, and always have opted for the leaner meats anyway. But that's not to say that I don't occasionally have some beef. Eat whatever you like on the list! I just eat similar things for simplicity and preference. But I'll get bored soon and go on to another type of meat in all liklihood!

I live in Spain, so I don't think you'll be able to get the same brand of broth as me. But check the nutritional information on the back, and make sure it is low calorie (mine is 5 cals per 100mls) and has trace carbs. It's a great way of cooking meat and fish, boiling it in broth. I add some garlic and parsely powder, some mixed herbs and ground pepper, and it fills me right up. The first few days, don't restrict your eating at all! You'll be hungry and grumpy and have headaches probably (it depends on how carbed up you are), but the weight loss is incomparable with other diets. After a few days (varies for each person, could be up to a week), you'll completely lose your appetite though you should continue to eat! Make sure you get looooooads of water. I drink over 4 litres a day. The more weight you have to lose, more water to drink. Try to get at least 2 litres. If you're not used to drinking lots of water, it will be weird at first, but your body soon adjusts. Best of luck! I'll be here at every step of the way. I need to lose just under 50lbs.

lbecker28 05-23-2010 03:37 PM

I would love to join. My goal is 30 pounds by the end of June. My menu will be the same most days.

Bfst: 2 boiled eggs
Lunch: chicken breast or turkey breast
Dinner: orange roughy or cod

plus tons of water

mmyers80 05-23-2010 03:40 PM

Thanks for the response! I never thought about broiling in broth before. Normally if I want chicken I will be a roastierre (sp?) chicken and have that. Im also thinking of buying a pot roast for the crockpot, but prob not for the first few days anyways.

I do drink tons of water already so that is a plus. Im excited about starting over! Hopefully more people will join us

Sounds good. Be aware of pre-roasted chickens as they often have lots of sodium and oils. No added fat on Stillman's :(

Meek75 05-23-2010 06:45 PM

The market near my home had cartons of eggs on sale. 2 - 18 carton of eggs for $3.00 - :clap:. I will be eating eggs and chicken (that's all I have right now, heehe) for the first week and then switch up next week.

My goal total is 20lbs :).

Is everyone here weighing everyday?

Meek75 05-23-2010 06:47 PM

When I cook with broth, I purchase the low sodium and dilute it. Has anyone tried doing that before?

kamills 05-24-2010 12:43 AM

Hi Meek, I tend to weigh myself most days. But there is no fixed rule about that. Do what works for you. I sometimes dilute my broth if I'm cooking it with some type of protein which has a stronger flavour.

I'm down to 212 today!!!!! Pound a day so far. :kicking:

Meek75 05-24-2010 08:24 AM

Hi Ladies - just checking in. I didn't weigh today. I think I will "weight" until June 1st :laugh:.

Menu:
B: 2 HB eggs/Tea
L: Chicken
S: 1 HB egg/Tea
D: Chicken

I'm at work and can't use the internet all like that - so I will check in when I get home.

Happy Losing Everyone :hiya:.

mmyers80 05-24-2010 09:36 AM

Morning Ladies! Today is my day 1 of a new me :)......so far just had breakfast (3 boiled eggs).
For lunch I may have a few turkey slices and another boiled egg.
Dinner will prob be some pork loin I have in the crockpot. I also plan on working out today. I will check in tonight. Have a great day!!

Meek75 05-24-2010 11:27 AM

Hi Michelle, you and I are starting together. Your menu looks yummy. Have a great day!!

icandoit 05-24-2010 12:17 PM

I would like to join! I gained my weight back but i lost it all on Stillman's before! Today is officially my first day. I will workout on my treadmill and wii. :)

kamills 05-24-2010 01:34 PM

Hi Manal! Welcome. Myers and Meek, great menus. At least you're working out, unlike me!

Meek75 05-24-2010 02:48 PM

Welcome Manal :hiya:.

Meek75 05-24-2010 02:49 PM

Kamills. I will be working out as well, but not sure of the days. Does folks following this diet typically experience a stall when they incorporate exercise? I pray not.
