Hello Everyone,

I couldn't sleep. It's almost 1:00am. For some reason, I do feel thinner. The coconut oil wasn't that bad... interesting flavor and texture. I plan to take another serving before I leave for work at 7:00am.

Thank you Alerieaaa and CCgirl for your encouraging words! I so appreciate it. In response to the "boob" jpbs, I am wanting a breast reduction. It costs about 10,000. However, if I make my goal, which I will, the insurance will kick in and pay for it. Now how is that for motivation? A breast enhancement costs about the same in California. It was half the price for most surgeons last year. Surgeons told the "their cost is going up..." I suppose for the hospital, really?? To GwnStfni, just know that you are protected as you travel. Holland is very clean, I hear, and the food should be as well. Certainly they have carb counters somewhere over there? You won't have access to the internet to log onto lo carb friends?

Goodbye forever 150's!!

Good Morning!

I got some sleep and left for work at 7:00am. I just had half a piece of chicken and took my vitamins. I had my jar of CO on the counter and the heat from the crockpot turned the jar of solid oil into liquid. Made it much easier to take the oil.

Will this cause any problems? I moved the jar off the counter into the cupboard, away from the heat. The jar is not even close to the crockpot... it is on the opposite side of the counter.

I'm starting to feel a little better today. Let's hope that I will feel much better by the weekend!

Okay, I need some advice. I never had muscle cramps this bad before. I'm taking the following vitamins:

Men's one a day vitamin
Calcium
Potassium
Magnesium

Is there anything else I can try to eliminate all of those cramps. It is worse on my side.... almost like I am getting a stitch in my side from running.

Something that will work pretty much right away???

Hi Al,

I'm not going anywhere. I want my size 46 pants to start feeling looser so I can go back to my 44s, and then 42s and keep on shrinking! The cramps are killing me. I just took more potassium pills. I'm trying to figure out how many of those potassium pills I need to be taking. The bottle states the potassium is 99 mg, which seems to be very low. I search for the amount of potassium in a banana and it is 450 mg. So I took 3 more pills. If this helps a little bit, then I will take 3 more pills later.

-Dustin

Hey, I just learned that our bodies needs at least 2,000 mg of potassium! I will be taking more of those pills later today to slowly build up my potassium supply.

Hi Gwn- so much is going through your head right now. I cant beleive it either- 2 1/2 weeks for your 6 week adventure!! I know you'll do fine, Im selfishly worried about how we'll do while your gone!!! missin ya alreaady!!!

I wish I had all the answers but the biggest thing for you and me is portion control. If you can taste test these different foods and make sure the bulk of your menus are salads and protein, I think that would be a good plan. when I went off plan that first time, on vacation, in April, I didnt get upset stomach. But I ate waaaaaayyyyy too much of EVERYTHING CARB and didnt go to the bathroom all week! My tummy just got bigger and bigger. Not painful but very uncomfortable and gross feeling. So make sure you include LOTS of veggies to keep things moving! Can you bring the CO? That might help too (but I dont know how it will effect you weight wise with the extra carbs included) The one thing I do wish I did differently from my trip is wishing I didnt give in. It took me quite some time to get back on track and Im still struggling. You will be different though! You are much stronger and you'll be burning off all those extra calories hiking across Europe!!!!

You should try to check out that new Julia roberts film EAT PRAY LOVE...I hear its really good!

Up your potassium by taking an extra pill - make sure you take one in the morning and one in the evening

and that means, if I stay true to my word, I can not indulge in any non-meat items today!!

Had my CO breakfast and the fire is burnin inside. Woohoo! gonna make sure I eat before I head out so I am less tempted by the evil offerings of the casino...

have a great day everyone!!! I'll be back tomorrow!!

Enjoy the show, Al! I am jealous of all your concert-going! I Eminem too Just like me, chips and salsa are my ultimate weakness!! And they go soooo darn well with Patron!! Enjoy yourself at the show!

Congrats to all you losers! Looks like we had a bumpy patch there but most of us got our resolve back, myself included!

Peeps, I'm suddenly starting to feel really panic-y! I can't believe it but I leave for Europe in 2 1/2 weeks! In 2 1/2 weeks I will be jobless for the first time in my life! I've been dieting for 6 months straight now and I absolutely fear that I may completely blow it, while in Europe, and not be able to get "it" back. What will I do when I can't check in here every day??? I won't be able to check in here for 6 whole weeks!! I WON'T be able to WEIGH for 6 whole weeks!! Just out of the blue, back in Jan... Feb... March... I don't remember exactly, but I decided to finally go backpacking, to lose some weight and to quit my job and NOW it's really coming to fruition. I'm finally a decent size, the schedule at work is filled in beyond my last day and my name isn't there and in 2 1/2 weeks my feet will be touching soil outside of the US for the first time in my 32 years here. I've been so focused on making money and planning and dieting and basically in autopilot and now reality is setting in and it's freaky, uncertain, yet very liberating. I told myself I would go off QWL 2 weeks before I leave... Now I'm telling myself that I'll go off QWL the week before I leave... but in my head, I DONT WANT to go off QWL before I leave and I'm beginning to think that's the new plan... I want to lose all the weight I can before I leave with my boneless, skinless chicken breast in hand as I board the plane for Copenhagen. Am I crazy? I should allow my body to adjust to carbs before I leave... or pay the price in unfamiliar territory... But do I want to board that plane at 148lbs or 162lbs. I think I'm just gonna keep on trucking. QWL until I land in Denmark. My paranoia over possible tummy upsets, if anything, will keep my eating to a minimum and calories low.

Okay... just babbling now... The most exciting part of it all, will finally be putting myself off auto pilot and really experiencing new and different things every day and yes that even includes food!

good night.
Gwn, you are living my dream and probably the same dream lots of us have! How lucky you are to be so liberated to just go and wander across Europe! Don't stress - you will be fine. I have friends that live there and when they come here to visit they always remark on what huge portions Americans eat, so I bet portion control won't be a huge issue for you. And meat's available everywhere...have the time of your life!

Good morning everyone (I'm in California and with the time difference I always feel so far behind!) -

Checking in - today is day three and so far I have lost exactly two pounds (I'm ashamed to confess I'm a little disappointed it's not more :blush, and my fasting blood sugar has dropped almost 100 points (I let it get ridiculously high).

I go back to work the day after tomorrow, and I'm a little nervous because the teacher's lounge is notorious for being full of junk food. I've stopped eating lunch in there because I need the extra time in my room to grade papers, but it's right next to the copy machine, and there will be a lot of before school starts meetings in there next week. I will make sure I have plenty of chicken in my purse!

I'm also taking my son to see his favorite group AllStar Weekend (not exactly Eminem! ) at the House of Blues in Anaheim on Saturday, which means avoiding all the delicious treats in Downtown Disney and dealing with lunch at the Rainforest Cafe (his favorite), but I'm going to be positive and get through it. This is my son's "end of summer" and "aww, I'm sorry you have to get glasses and you're only 8!" treat - I need to remember who the day is for (and not let well-meaning DH talk me into "one little bite!" - naturally, he's thin).

Make it a great day, everyone!

Hi Doxielove,

Have fun and be strong! Tell your son that I had to wear bifocals at age of 13 because of the way my eyes are shaped. I'm both near sighted and far sighted!

Hello!

I hope you all don't mind if I join in here? I have been reading through the threads and have made a firm committment to start Stillman QWL 100% on Friday, August 13--and do is absolutely pure for no less than 2 weeks.

Just a little background: I've been on all sort of weight-reduction programs these past few years: Atkins, South Beach, WW, Jenny Craig--just name a few! Annnnd....I just keep getting bigger somehow. I'm 5'6, and for most of my 20s and early 30s I was between a size 6 and 8, weighing usually between 135 and 145.

However, I started gaining weight a few years ago, and I just went through a very sad break-up a few weeks back. Instead of losing my appetite like MOST normal women---I tured to food (namely, carbs and sugar) for comfort. UGH. Now, I have been too chicken to get on the scale, but lets just say that some size 12s I have are getting too tight.

But, I'm taking back control, and it's time to break the cycle of weight gain. I've started cutting back carbs today, but as I said, I will be starting hard core on Friday.

I've read of the success many of you have had thus far and I'm VERY inspired!

Thanks for listening to me ramble.

Amen Kiley2801! You made the right step! I tend to turn to food when I'm bored or going through a bad emotional time. Join the club! It will be worth it! Sometimes I have visions of having my ex-wife regretting the divorce when I finally lose all of that weight! It makes me smile a little bit.

Thanks, Dustin - he doesn't feel quite so bad after hearing that! (I'm sorry for you, tho. ) I'm near and far sighted as well, but I was able to compensate for it til I was in my late 30's.

I went to my chiropractor this morning (LOVE her) and after hearing a few of her patients raving to each other about the B12 oral shots, I bought a box (Lord knows I need energy). But now that I read the box, I see that each one contains 3 grams of sugar and 2.5 grams of xylitol (I'm supposed to take one shot three times a week). Is that enough sugar to keep me from going into keotosis (I don't think I'm in it yet - today is only day 3)? Because if it is, I won't take them - it's not worth it to me to stall weight loss. Does anyone know?

doxie, I don't think that will do any damage at all! I have a splenda in my coffee every morning. I am sure you'll be fine! Let us know how those shots make you feel! Also, thank you for the advice... You're right about portions... I just watched the movie "In Bruges" last night and they had all the typical American generalizations... It was kind of humiliating... The super sized family that cussed people out, the snotty Americans dining and being pissed off at someone smoking next to them, the loud and obnoxious American. Are people really not overweight all over Europe these days, too?? I have to wonder. I've watched many documentaries about Europe and I always see overweight people in the background... Don't tell me they're all Americans. Either way, I am glad I am not going over there at my starting weight, being one of those "typical" Americans.

Ok Al, your deal, so we are holding you accountable! No chips and salsa tonight But if you're like me, you lose judgment when you drink and the chips and salsa literally call to you! Plus you tell yourself, at least I do, that I *need* them to soak up some of the alcohol Have fun!

Welcome to the group, Kiley! You're in good hands here and what a great date to start on I also started on the 13th of the month, though I don't think it was a Friday

Where is Kamills ???

Weight is still at sig which is okay with me, plus TOM is still here. Really hoping to see 147 before I leave. I need to go for a bike ride today but it's going to be in the 90s again. Ugh... Supposed to be 10 degrees cooler tomorrow so maybe I can hold off... Anyone else working out today??

Good Afternoon!

It's almost 2:00 pm. My side cramps are better since I took all of those extra potassium pills. In 2 more hours, I will be heading home. Whoo-Hoo! Then I will be taking some more CO. Hopefully tomorrow will be my DAY!

So I'm in the midst of finding a teaching job...I went on an interview last Tuesday and it went AMAZINGLY. The superintendent called me Thursday telling me how much she loved me and wanted me to do a demo lesson. She would call me this week to set up a date. Well she just called me and said there won't be a demo and she can offer me per diem substitute work...thanks but no thanks....SOOOO UPSET RIGHT NOW ....Had to vent a little. I just don't get how you can get someone's hopes up...then smush them?

Aww, that stinks. I'm really sorry - it's a bad time to be a teacher right now (at least here in California - I assume it's the same everywhere). I have a credential and a Master's in Special Ed which usually always has openings, and there is NOTHING out there, so I teach in a private school (hopefully temporarily). I think it's wrong that they make us jump through so many hoops to get hired - NCLB testing, fingerprints (which I understand), RICA, the dreaded "5th year" AND the low pay - something will happen for you, just keep applying. I don't know anyone who got hired from their first interview. Good luck!

Luckily the bad mood made me forget all about food!! Instead of going straight for the fridge I just pouted all night...lol. But luckily I have back up plans. I sub in a few districts on Long Island...so it's better than nothing!

Sub jobs often lead to long-term subbing which is a great way to get your foot in the door! Do you ever leave candy bars with your card attached (you can even have wrappers specially made) in the teachers' lounges in your district? I know all the teachers at the different schools love it, and will often call a sub who goes out of their way to do something like that. Keep your chin up!
