News about Endometriosis: you may be able to prevent it by eating right. Getting plenty of foods high in Omega-3 Fatty acids, such as TUNA or salmon can decrease your risk by 22 percent while chowing down on foods high in trans fat can increase your chances by as much as 48 percent. . .

So. .gals.. I think we picked the right diet.. Eat your Tuna!!!! (And take your vitamins. .) Have you taken yours today? I have a reminder set up so I take mine with lunch. . do it.. it works and your body will thank you later for it!
I have suspected Endometriosis. I was given the choice of a key hole op or the pill (which I had never taken), I chose the latter because I did not want the op. However I did not take the pill in the end and just get on with the symptoms which Strangely have been better over the last couple of months. I recently heard that there is a new way to detect and treat Endometriosis that does not require going though the tummy but I don't know much about it.

The 24-Hour Secret: "Most people who make a diet mistake will continue the pattern for the rest of the day! I call this the 'slip to sleep' syndrome...If you make a conscious, focused effort not to fall into the pattern for the rest of the day and into the next, the temptation to cheat passes. With good strategy, you can immediately cut it off! You can get through this manageable period of time and make the cheating an isolated event. You end the cycle of bingeing from day to day, avert chain-eating, and do not gain weight from your slips. And that is the 24-Hour Secret" (107).

From Slip to Sleep: The Critical Period: "The essence of weight control is error control, and the essence of error control is managing the period from slip to sleep. If you have success in this short but crucial period, you will have success in getting to yoru optimal weight...Here's the core strategy my clients have found works best during this time:
*Write out what you will eat for the rest of the day, meals as well as snacks. THis is the most successful strategy. Push yourself; force yourself to make this menu.
*Write out tomorrow's menu as well
*Do a brief mental rehersal (explained later) to desensitize you to tohe power of any tempting food before you even encounter it
*Use diversion...Avoid boredom at all costs!
*Commit to the menu you've written, from tht point until you go to bed
(107 -109)
Thank for this. I wil be using this stratergy from here on!

Well I did my AM weigh in and I am down another half pound, even after going to restaurants 2 days in a row. My job for the week is to look for Stillman snacks--things I can eat that are quck, small and faithful to the diet. Any recipe suggestions for snacks?

scootergal, BBP and Christine-

Mom has been doing well with the diet but it's these discussions that are really giving her the heads up.
She's almost lost ten pounds in 13 days. (5'7" sw 145 cw 136 small boned) and is plotting her conversion for maintenance when she returns, my copy of DANDR by her side.
The incidents with BBP's mom and scootergal's sister really blew her away. I had to explain to her that low carbers are constantly under attack from the misinformed public and family.
She had the following pearls (of wisdom) to offer: (this is pretty much her typing this now)
When others see you making progress on this diet their defenses comes out. Your determination and results make them realize that they can no longer make excuses for their own heft, i.e. the diets I've tried didn't work, I was at that gathering and I had to eat the meal, dessert, etc. Rather than ackowledging and dealing with their own weight problems they attack others who are losing weight successfully.
Sadly, they need to realize (sp=EU) you can only blame others for so much; then you have to own the rest. Owning it (being fat) is a big step that some can never take. Dodging the issue is far more convenient and does not make them accountable. People are pretty resistant to change, we like to stay where it's comfortable, and being accountable for your weight if it's a problem is not comfortable.

You all prob know all this but after we discussed it I felt we had to share. I don't have any siblings and my fam has been major supportive throughout my whole heavy life.

Sorry about your sister scooter. You dont have to worry about what anyone says. As the good doctor would say, the fact that we are carrying extra fat on us is unhealthy and we must get rid of it as quickly as possible. Tell her your friend ate strictly meat for 9 months, not one veggie, and she was never in better shape or health in all of her life. Hair, skin, nails, were shiny, growing, and no longer dry. Complexion was flawless, and over 70 pounds of fat was gone.

(Fast forward....Your friend starting incorporating carbs back...she put on a little weight, her hair started falling out, her allergies are back full force, and shes covered in zits. 12 to be exact.......)

better yet, don't say anything at all. Take care of yourself and as you become the healthy thin woman you deserve and WILL be, she will probably end up following in your footsteps!

Moms just have to do their duty to make sure their kids are ok. Next time she takes you out, get her to buy you a big steak! She wont worry when she sees you chowing down... and you will still lose weight!
