That's wonderful that your loss is noticeable. I have lost 22 lbs and NO ONE has noticed or said anything to me. Makes me wonder if maybe my scales and clothes are lying to me. I'm trying to be patient, because I know the last 10 lbs were put on quickly at the end of last year, maybe it's not noticeable that they are gone. I can't wait til it becomes visible to my friends. That's what I get for letting myself become a blob.

How many pounds did it take the rest of you to get noticed? I remember on Atkins it was about 15 or 20. It was a coworker I didn't even know very well.

Suri: Yeah um, I am thinking that cheesecake should be allowed under Stillmans. that way, I can go to the Cheesecake Factory and have their low carb cheesecake.

I mean, come on people, its CHEESE LOL.

Okay, the wistful rationalization has passed.

Hope everybody is going strong today!

Oh and my BF will be home later after a long business trip, so I will let you all know what he says. Being a typical man, I am bracing for him telling me I look the same, LOL.

Lisa, don't worry about the doughnuts. You'll lose that weight in no time. Do you lose better when only sticking to tuna? Or do you just do it for its easiness?

Makeme, I'm seriously envious of your metabolism. I gain if I even look at non-Stillman's food. You'll have to post a pic when you get your hair done! Did your friend notice any weight change?

GT, 1950s was much better. Waisted things, curvy women, and red lipstick to make your teeth look whiter!

Everyone else, glad to see some new "faces" in here. I know we'll all have a really successful month. I can feel it in my bones, even if those are buried really really deep under a load of fat.

Diet wise I'm doing great. I got the IUD / coil (not sure what you call it where!) put in this morning, and I feel horrible. I nearly vomited. Last time they put it in, I actually did vomit, so at least that's an improvement. Going to be taking lots of pain killers today. Do they have carbs?




you can see how the hair is separating. It's a bit of a scary pic...looks like a bad wig! looks better in the flesh honest. Think I'm going to chop off the wispy ends. Plus check out the static.

Loads!! Like seriously! I hid my loss well , I think-wore the same baggy stuff. And when people did start to notice and commenting it was never in a good way!! It's always are you sure you're not sick-even now!!

Sometimes people know there is something different about you but they are not quite sure what it is ...maybe that is why??? I am not saying people are approaching me and commenting. It's only people who know that I am doing this and family that have commented. You keep on, people will notice soon enough...if they don't then they are just jealous.

On my 6th day, i ate less fat... i was so sicking of it, duh! The next day, i jumped on scale, 4 pounds has gone ! Totally a MAGIC!

Suri - we had a discussion on the list last month about ways to break a stall. One suggestion was to increase fat and calories (but still stay low carb) for a few days. Since I was in a major stall I thought I would try it and post results to the group. So I ate higher fat and calories Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon. Went back to a strict Stillman's yesterday and remain strict to see how long it takes to see any loss again.

About the smell... The mixture I had put on my hair smells exactly like chocolate...apparently it also comes in strawberry. Obviously I know what keratin is but I am sitting there why the dresser is slapping it on and I ask him..."so what exactly is in this stuff"? and he's like "well it's made from like... finger nails, toe nails, skin etc" and you know how they get the stuff...we are literally walking with the dead! No wonder it smells!

I logged in to photobucket to display the hair pic and I came across this photo of DD that I uploaded two years ago. She tried to delete it, claiming it was awful but I love this photo of her...she is nearly 19 but she is still my baby

MM--Your hair looks nice, but if you are concerned, are you taking a good vitiamin?

also I have used Andrew Lessman's Healthy Hair and Nails from HSN and have been pleased. It takes time to see results, but I think its good. Anything similar would help.

Whoa, this is harder than I thought. Second day....and I've been on Atkins for months....!

So I had some Ham at lunch...that's it. For dinner I had an omelet (not cooked in oil) with cottage cheese, dill, garlic powder....and then I lost it and added a shake of parmesan.

Geeze louise. Seriously, does this get better? Please throw me an olive branch!!

Oh, i see
So no Stall has been broken ? I see some people they do 1-2 carb up days and then go back to the wagon, they also can break stalls this way. Have you tried it yet ?
I think the best way to stay away from stall is calories variety.

Haha, unless you make your cheesecake with cottage cheese, it's totally acceptable in Stillman's
Im thinking to make a lowcarb cheesecake and tiramisu also, maybe Sunday will be my FAT day, eat some fat to vary the calo intake. Yup! I find a way to get rid of falling out the wagon

OK, I will just have to congratulate my own self: Yay! (Looking in mirror) "I do believe you have lost a chin there, darling!" "Oh, you noticed!" "That's so it won't flap around when I finally break down and buy the Shake Weight!" "Yes, good idea. Plus you look really nice without the extra chin." "Thanks, you too."

I better go to bed now. If it's not the "voices" from the pantry, it's me talking to myself. G'night.

At the moment I am just taking a regular Centrum each day...but that has only been since starting this diet. I have always wondered about the hair and nail vitamins. One thing I do know that is good for the nails is gelatine. If I eat jelly/jello every day for a few weeks I can tell a huge difference. I am trying to find some organic SF Jello...anyone know of where I might find some?

Keep at it, it will get better...to the point where you will have to remind yourself to eat. We are allowed some low fat hard cheese and I put Parmesan into that bracket (please quote me if I'm wrong guys). I have cheese every day, low fat cheddar or parmesan...not keen on cottage cheese.

Gorgeous and so cute! just lately...since turning 40 I seem to be getting all broody, which is weird because I absolutely know I do not want anymore children. However, yesterday I saw these really cute, amazing polka dot romper suits and I so want to buy one but can't figure it out coz I have no one to buy one for??? go figure!? they come in pink, purple, blue, yellow...what is happening to me? Thanks for your comments on my hair...maybe I will wait a week or two.

Morning all,

Down to 210.4 this morning. 2.2 lbs loss since Tuesday. I won't meet my second goal on Saturday (of 205), but at least the scale is going in the right direction. Strict Stillman's for me until I am into onederland. Have a good day everyone!

I am down another 1/2 lb to 157 1/2. Very happy. Not bad for less than 2 weeks. Does anyone know when "the wall" kicks in? I realize the book says average weight loss is about 5 lbs a week, but have you folks found that to be correct?

What do you do to get out of a rut?

Thanks

4 Tuna Packets and 2 hard boiled Eggs with 2 cheese sticks and lots of water w/cl! That was my menu yesterday!

Today i plan on cutting out the cheese sticks and upping my water. Scale read 197.7 WTH!!! How the Heck????

I gained a ton of weight back on vacation! I know TOM is right around the corner too, but honestly! I guess sitting in a car for 12 hrs and eating carbs can do this to ya ppl! Go figure!

Breakfast consisted of a pack of tuna!

I'm going to change my stats! It's not fair to have a lower weight than I'm at right now posted. Plus it will hold me accountable for the pounds and I will be driven to lower them! I know we say not to move it up, but this time I think it's necessary!

BTW, My new scale weighs so much heavier than my old one, but it is closer to the scale the doc. has!
