Yam yam was just wondering about your protein shake for the mornings. What exactly do you use and how do you do it? That seems like something that would be really handy to have before I go to work at night. The kids hate the smell of tuna so they give me a hard time when I open it up not to mention it drives my cats crazy and I end up giving them all a taste I haven't had anything to eat yet today. I work nights so this is getting up pretty early for me but thought I might go exercise early and see if I can get into gear for the day. Hope everyone has a great day!!

Thanks Yam Yam! You're always so loving and supportive.

Well, here we go gals. Let's do this. It only takes a bite at a time and before we know it, we're there. Just do it! RIGHT!

I'm off to get my ckn and extra lean burgers. I'm gonna make all the food I need for the day and pack it in indiv. containers. I think if I do this I won't just take random bits of my daughters crud.

God bless all our efforts. WE CAN DO THIS!

Hugs,
Beth

I always felt somehow "outside" that group because I would lose and then gain or stall....somehow the reports of everyone having a great week always rang false with me. Then I was always reluctant to share if I had gained or stalled. I am sure these groups did not intend to make me feel like I was being judged (once again) and coming up short - but that is how I felt. So I would leave and go back to my bad habits....never working my way through all the struggles on my way to success - just failing....again.

Here I feel that people DO understand the struggle. People here stall, gain, fall back into bad habits BUT they come back and try again.....

I am trying to live a real life and include low carbing into that life. I am trying to be more healthy and live longer and fuller. For the past 5 months I have been MOSTLY successful and this is in large part due to the support of this group.

So, my message is PLEASE post, check-in - even if you haven't followed Stillman's to a "T", even if you are struggling, even when you are gaining or stalled and especially when you are successful. Your success and struggles really DO help me to get through mine.

Love to everyone out there!
I second all of that!! Amen, Sista!!!

You are absolutely right about being able to say that and not getting chewed out about "not really wanting it" and all that. This is real life. I lost 30 plus pounds this year, and put 10 back on in one fell swoop. I'm back in it to win it now, and I know I'll have some weak points, so I need you all to help me!

By the way, right now I'm DYING FOR SOME CARBS!!!
It is so not worth it, is it? I did the same thing. . ate. . ate. . and ate just cuz I knew I was cheating and wanted to "get it out of my system". . Well. . enough I say. . Enough!!! One cheat takes 3 days to recover and I hate it. . .Let's win this war and do this thing. . We know the secret! We do . .we really do. . .

Good afternoon!

Almost 3:00pm then another hour and half before I get the heck outta of here! So far, doing pretty good! I have been taking lots of potassium pills and Midol.... no headaches at all.... maybe a slight crabbiness.

I did! I saw it and laughed!!

Thanks for the encouragement for starting out on Atkins. I am soooooo excited to be able to have cream in coffee (4 tsp. per day) and sugar free jello!! that really seems like a cheat.

So, I'm assuming you have done Atkins? How did it work for you??

Hi Mustang!! I bought vanilla flavored whey protein powder that can be mixed with a spoon in water, so if you are ever in a pinch it's easy to mix in a cup at your desk, even. It has 20 grams of proteiin in 100 Calories per scoop which is one serving.

Here is what I do (keep in mind I play around with it and vary it when I want to)::

8 ounces of crushed ice (more or less depending on how thick you like it) - put in blender
8 ounces of green tea (or any liquid you like)-pour over ice
1 or 1 plus scoops of protein powder (depending on how hungry you are!! )
1 or 2 teaspoons of psyllium husks (I have done as much as 2 TBLSP!! Keeps me full). You can buy unflavored husks, like "Colon Pure" or buy sugar free metamucil or Wal-Mart has a generic orange flavored sugar free one. It's just called a powdered fiber supplement.
1 TBLSP ground flax seeds (optional)
1 TBLSP EVOO (opetional)
Half cup frozen blackberries (or frozen strawberries or any berries! I like blackberries right now because they are only 6 carbs and have 3 grams fiber. So, 3 NET carbs) == Fruit is also optional, but it makes it tastier, more colorful and creamier
One quarter (just a touch) of a small banana. This gives it smoothness.
2 TBLS of ACV
Cinnamon to taste.

Blend it on the "smoothie" setting until it's nice and smoothe. Add liquid if you need to. Drink with a straw!!

-Yesterday I made it without any fruit and only 1 tsp. of psyllium. It turned out more like a snow cone and I had to put it in a bowl and eat it with a spoon!!

Anyway, you can see how you can mess around with it.

It tastes awesome if you use milk instead of other liquids and if you use half a banana or more. However, that's toooooooo many carbs for Stillman or Atkins!!

Tomorrow I'm gonna try cucumbers and see how that tastes!

I was also thinking that on a morning when I don't drink coffee, I might put some cream in it and see if it tastes like a milkshake!!!

Oh, and I figure since I'm adding so much fiber, my net carbs for the whole shake are minimal to none. It really keeps me full and keeps my mind off food for hours!!

It's my DH's favorite chocolate covered candy bar and I hate it when I see one because I want it!

Right now I'm un-hungry because I'm being good, though!

OK, end of my page hogging for a while.

Real Quick, though:

Beth:

So, I did my grocery shopping in the 100 degree heat!! Oh, and I bought the ketosis strips. They are really very cheap! I got 100 for $14. Wish I would have bought the smaller cheaper pack, 'cos when I read the instructions it says they are only good for 2 months. Don't think I will use 100 in 60 days? Maybe?? lol.

Tried one when I got home and it shows second level. Kind of a lavendar. So, I guess that means I'm on my way I hope after eating much less carbs yesterday than I have been and even less so far today.

I bought a rotissere chicken. Garlic and Herb because I knew I would be hungry for a late lunch.

It did not take much of it to fill me up! Just some of the white meat and part of a leg. I can't believe it. I'm not hungry. I'm gonna keep it handy to munch on in case of emergency.

Do you all find that it's hard to get into the habit of reaching for protein when you are hungry? My mind first turns to bread or crackers.....but then, when I eat meat I find I'm satisfied very quickly and full for a long time.

Today's food so far:

3 cups of weak coffee w/ a tsp. cream in each
Protein shake made w/ green tea, very little if any carbs and lots of insoluble fiber
chicken breast and leg

32 ounces of tea
32 ounces of water

Wish I had a bigger bladder!

Hi y'all, just a quick drive by while I catch from page 18!

Mom arrived Thursday from MIA and we are having fun, went to Coach on Saturday in the rain and have been rewarded with colds...ugh!

Down another two pounds, finally after stalling from the weight training. But I like those muscles and doing leg lifts is really trimming the saddlebags on my hips!

I am going to read all the posts and will be replying, albeit somewhat delayed, to all the good news I expect to hear from all you losers!

CCgirl; Thank you for the information about soy. I stay clean away from it since it lowers thyroid. BUT I didn't know broccolli had estrogens in it!! Yikes!! I am not yet eating veggies, so not a problem yet. But very good to know. Is there a list out there that you refer regarding this stuff? I love cauliflower, so I hope there is none in there.

IM2fat; Stay encouraged. Sometimes life gets in the way and your LCF can't make it online. But we love you and want you to succeed. Please don't feel abandoned.

Natural estrogen is found in certain beverages as well. You won't find phytoestrogen in Dr. Pepper or other carbonated drinks; however, you will find it in coffee

Although many consider garlic, onions and chives to be seasonings, they are actually allium vegetables---just as cilantro, parsley and parsnips are umbelliferous vegetables (related to the carrot family). All of these contain natural estrogen. Other vegetables containing nature's estrogen are: tomatoes, peppers, carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, bok choy, leeks, brussel sprouts, kale and artichoke. In addition, potatoes and soybeans, counted as vegetables, contain phytochemicals.

Read more: What Foods Contain Natural Estrogen? | eHow.com

anti-estrogenic diet-

Estrogen dominance is believed to be responsible for age-related weight gain and metabolic disorders in both men and women.
Rely on fresh fruits and vegetables (heavy on crucifers such as broccoli), low-fat yogurt, fertile eggs, beans, whole grains, wild-caught fish and aged cheese, and prepares the body to switch from fuel based on carbohydrates to fuel based on fat.

things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmm..........

LOL I can't-they're DBF's food. I am surrounded on a daily basis by brownies, Hershey's miniature candies, pies and pork rinds. He's the King O' Carbs. I just stared them down, after 12 they tasted like crapola anyway...TG I don't like chocolate that much!

Squish, what moves are you doing with the weights? Here's the one that gets rid of batwings-old school calls them bingo wings.

stand straight with either a large heavy weight in two hands or two smaller in each.

Lower your arms up and over your shoulders so that your elbows are sticking straight up next to your ears and your hands are hanging down over your shoulderblades if separate weights or down over the base of your neck if doing the one weight. (I do one 15 lb. weight in two hands.)

raise the weight up over the top of your head without moving your elbows forward keeping them at your ears.

Do as many reps as you can, be careful not to strangle yourself or knock yourself out when finished and getting the weight up over your head and back in front of you when you're done.......

2 The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is BOWLING.

3 The sport of choice for front-line workers is FOOTBALL.

4 The sport of choice for supervisors is BASEBALL.

5 The sport of choice for middle management is TENNIS.

And....

6 The sport of choice for corporate executives and officers is GOLF.

THE AMAZING CONCLUSION:

The higher you go in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.

and, since no self respecting redneck would ever work in corporate America, the sport of choice is...........drinking and hunting!!!!!!!!!

Oh if I could only answer that!!
LOL can anyone tell me why I feel so skinny?

I weighed this much in 1999 and all I saw was a heifer. Now I think I am slim?

After blooming to 200 I was using a crowbar to get into my size 10's with a huge muffin top, I had to wear them two days before they stretched out enough to look decent. Mom was buying XL tops I could have cried.

Now my size 9's rip right on. My sz 30 pepe skinny cigarette leg jeans look great, my legs are miles long (34" inseam) and I only want to wear heels.

Tee shirts are too big and the donation bags are filling up. Went shopping with Mom and BFF last Friday and bot medium ladies tops and large junior tops. Clingy that show a smaller belly and the first signs of a six pack.

I have found my hip bones, collar bones and ribs, and watched one and a half chins go away.

Maybe that's why it's called hindsight......because I was a big donkey! Hee haw, hee haw!

I have lack of motivation. I have stress (my brother is very ill. He had a liver transplant.) Also, my commitments have grown beyond my ability to catch up. I need to do something about that.

Alas, I have also abandoned my scale and my desire to avoid Devil Carbs.

Good news is that on the plane to PA I read Dana Carpender's book and LOVED it!!! It just resonated with me and made me ready to be ready to be willing...at some point...(ha!) to dive back in to the LC WOE.

I also got Atkin's '72 book from amazon.com and started reading it yesterday. I've never done Atkins or even read the rules, so I'm a newbie there. Thinking that might be a good way to start.

I certainly like how he writes and how much info he packs in to the book.

Needless to say, I got on the scale this morning after my weeks long scale vacation and I am up 10 pounds from my stats!!! I knew it because my bras are too tight, my pants are too tight, I feel sluggish and don't have enough energy to do all the stuff on my ta-doo-doo list!!!

Soon, I will jump back on the wagon. I need and want to!!!

I'm back to suck up some motivation, Peeps. I missed being here!
YAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Smallerizing!
You've got a lot going on right now in your life! Be as merciful to yourself as you are to others...and that weight will come right back off.

I'm glad you are back!

Baby girl coming back from Ukraine, having had her money stolen, starting school late

DH's new part time job

Extreme back pain from all the driving.

So today I'm back on the wagon, having eggs for breakfast and lunch, who knows what for dinner. My grill is dead.

I missed y'all!

First surgery is on Sept 2 and second surgery is on Sept 9. So I spent the weekend doing not so well with controlling my carbs! Then common sense took over and I'm back on the horse.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day!

Hey guys.. just checking in. . .I did very, very well today. . It is 9:20 and I'm contemplating dinner.. perhaps I'll skip and see what that does. . I know the scale is up. . I think perhaps more than I can stand so I'm gonna avoid it for awhile. . Stupid scale anyway. . Looks like everyone is on a roll. . Lets rock this thing. . go. go. go. .

Yam Yam; I have not ever been successful on Atkins. I think that it just has too much fat in it for me, that keeps me craving food. But I know tons of people that have lost tons of weight. And if it worked for me, I would be on it. Currently I am strictly Stillmans. (23rd day)

CCgirl; Thank you for the veggie estrogen list. I think I am going to have a tough time including veggies. Kale seems to have the best nutrition, but estrogens in it... mmm. And where is the picture of guys taken? It looks very Wyoming to me...? I love it!! Won't find guys like that on the central coast of California...

Well all I have had is eggs today HB, and mostly with the yolks since I am not able to eat anything else due to $$. But thank God I have the eggs!! Organic no less! Next time I am going to sans the cottage cheese, and make deviled eggs with straight mustard, even though the cot ch is nonfat, I think it may raise my blood sugar. It has been about a point or two off track all day, and thats with lots of exercise. I had 6 eggs, two at each meal.

IM2fat; Congratulations on doing well today! Keep going! Once on a roll, try to stay there! Do you need to get a new scale? The Weight Watchers scale is supposed to be the best according to what I researched on line. I have a digital glass Taylor scale. I think its okay, though it shows me things sometimes I don't want to see! My other Health something or other spring scale was off by 6 lbs the entire time and I didn't need the extra discouragement. Glad I put in 25 bucks for this one. When I get to goal, I am going to reward myself with a Weight Watchers scale.

Anything, That's a great victory when our clothes get looser...and our old clothes start fitting again! That's more reliable than that scale! Congrats!

(Although I'm addicted to the scale too!)
