BACK ON IT!!! (AGAIN)

I have been on and off this eating plan for a long time. I have just moved back to the UK from the Middle East. This time I am determined.

What I find really interesting about this plan is the ongoing cottage cheese debate. I love the stuff and have just eaten it . However, I have just had full fat which has 6.1gs of fat per 100g.

Sometimes I do eat the very low fat sort which has 1.5gs fat per 100g. However, I think if you had 250gs of cottage cheese for Breakfast, lunch and dinner you would lose. THe calories would be just under 900. I do think this diet is actually quite calorie dependent. I lose fast with fish but it's not practical in the office for lunch and you have more prep involved.

Wish you all luck and big losses. Pls come back and tell me about your cottage cheese experiences......

Running tonight. Exercise is important when you sit all day at a desk.

I saw a piece on the news last night about the minimalist life. Living with less than 100 possessions. Crap, I couldn't live with less than 100 pairs of shoesand I refuse to do so.

I cannot let this go on. . those 25 pounds will be back in no time flat and I know this. . Too easy to feel like crap and too easy to throw in the towel.. If I don't get it this time, I will forever leave LCF .. cuz I hate the fact that I am bringing anyone else down.. my only saving grace is I hope I can inspire someone who is thinking about cheating. . SO NOT WORTH IT. Really.. as soon as I've cheated, I remember how awful it feels... Nothing. . and I repeat. .Nothing. . tastes as good as thin feels.. I watched all the hard bodies walk by me yesterday and kept reminding myself.. I am worth it. . I do care and I can do this.. .So with little else. . I resign myself to the fact that. .it is time. .I can do this and so can you!!
forgive and move on. And if you leave LCF I will hunt you down and beat you with a giant turkey leg. You have accomplished so much and inspired others to forge ahead, honestly girl, you are one of our founding mothers and we need you!!!!!!!!!!

I just read an article that claims women who do at least 10 minutes a day . .have less chance of suffering from demenia than those who don't. . so why would we take the chance?

Do a check list for yourself today:

Vitamins - check
Water - check
Meat - Check
Breakfast - check . .yes it's important!
6 small meals - check
10 measly minutes of exercise - check
hugs - check
more water - check
LCF - double check

Come on . let's make this the first day of the rest of our new lives. .

I'm on a live-it.. how about you?
now THAT'S more like it!

Vitamins - nope
Water - 16z so far-lame, I know
Meat - Check
Breakfast - check . .yes it's important!
6 small meals - about 4
10 measly minutes of exercise - 45 min 2 mile jog, check
hugs - check
more water - okay okay I'm on it
LCF - double check

Hi peeps! I'm back!! did ye miss me!!!!!!!! I haven't had a minute to myself in the past week-work is killing me! I read your posts quickly last night but was too tired to post, oh yeah and on someone's iPhone a few days ago!! I miss you guys! Work should be calming down after next week-well fingers crossed anyway!
I am back 100% on plan since Friday (I think!) and I feel so much better, so much more in control! I've upped the exercise and bought a new toning DVD. I've been getting up at 6.30 to do some before work but after the clock changes, I hope I'll be able to keep that up!!!!!!
I am all revved up again and can't wait to shrink, shrink, shrink (like Becky!) Seriously all your success stories spur me on!!
One of my coworkers said to me the other day "oh Summer really agreed with you, you look great, so healthy". Now peeps I dunno about the US but in Ireland if ya describe someone as healthy it's kinda the same as fat--well it's not thin anyway!! Kind of a back-handed compliment!! I'm hoping it's different in Germany!!! Actually my face is definitely rounder-carb-face!! But I do kinda prefer it-it had got a bit thin looking- hope I just shrink my body and my face stays carbed-up! He!
Also I got an IPL treatment a few weeks ago to get rid of my freckles (did I ever tell yall how much I hated them!!) The pain was unreal-like wasp stings--but sooo worth it! They're not all gone but lots are! Anyway I read that it also boosts your collagen so maybe that's it too!
Now I've nothing else to report only that I was gonna get my hair cut into a very short crop--I was really looking for a change and I was never confident enough to do it before, always hid behind long hair! (it's shoulder-length and layered now and I always wear it curled--to give my face width (obsessed or what! He!) Anyway I didn't do it and I am so so glad!! I think it was all the carbs that made my brain go fuzzy. Dunno how I ever thought I would like it!!
Ok my rambling is over now!!!

I'm going to start adding some veggies back into my diet- I actually miss them. Not much- luckily I'm not a huge vegetable person anyway. Just enough to give me a little variety on my journey down the scale.

I'm a little nervous right now. I'm supposed to meet this guy at 8 tonight- we got to know each other through a mutual friend this summer/fall- and I think things will be a bit strange. He *really* wants to see me, but I'm just feeling "meh" about him. To complicate matters, our mutal friend is in love (yes IN LOVE) with me (I don't feel the same and have told him so on numerous occasions).

It's just- I'm not speaking to our mutual friend and last weekend was the first time I hung out w/ just new friend alone. Yeah, okay- we hooked up. We were both drunk, and it was fun...but I'm not sure if I want to continue seeing him. I guess I'll find out later, huh?
Hope your date went well Emky!!

reporting a 1 pound loss for today,,,,yeeeee!

Hi CC girl. Thanks for the magnesium tip. By the way,,,we are neck and neck now!

Msgirl,, keep popping in. I want to hear how Judds works for you.

Hi Susan, I'm not doing any cottage cheese right now, just the queso cheese that is like the farmers cheese. I don't want the carbs right now. But my friggy has quite a few of them in it waiting for me when I'm ready.

I must note, I feel great and am not used to having all this energy. I may have to get up and do something

Yep, when I feel secure enough to add some carbs back in, I will definitely be asking for help and advice!

I've not cooked in vinegar...one day I'm going to try the hot sauce too...

I've been eating them with vinegar or hot sauce. . no dressing! I know plain is the way to go but sometimes a little flavor goes a long way. .

Has anyone tried to cook anything in vinegar? Like in a marinade or something. I find that I really like the flavor but never thought about putting it on my meat. . It is actually quit good sprinkled on plain ole dried chicken. . I love spice/sour soup and that has a ton of vinegar. . I suppose I could take to drinking pickle juice again but the sodium would kill me. . hehehe

Yay for you BP!! That's great! You will be so proud of yourself if you resist the halloween candy. It might taste good for about 5 minutes...and then you would regret it...it would set you back...so not worth it!!
When your clothes start getting looser...THAT will feel better than that candy will taste.

AND remember all the bad stuff sugar does in your body...it's truly amazing...we not only do not need that sugar...we will be in better health without it!!

I show weight big time in my face too...matter of fact, if I was one of those who always had a skinny face, I probably wouldn't care so much what my butt looks like...so it's a good thing I show it in my face! haha

I read your posts quickly last night but was too tired to post, oh yeah and on someone's iPhone a few days ago!! I miss you guys! Work should be calming down after next week-well fingers crossed anyway!
I am back 100% on plan since Friday (I think!) and I feel so much better, so much more in control! I've upped the exercise and bought a new toning DVD. I've been getting up at 6.30 to do some before work but after the clock changes, I hope I'll be able to keep that up!!!!!!
I am all revved up again and can't wait to shrink, shrink, shrink (like Becky!) Seriously all your success stories spur me on!!
One of my coworkers said to me the other day "oh Summer really agreed with you, you look great, so healthy". Now peeps I dunno about the US but in Ireland if ya describe someone as healthy it's kinda the same as fat--well it's not thin anyway!! Kind of a back-handed compliment!! I'm hoping it's different in Germany!!! Actually my face is definitely rounder-carb-face!! But I do kinda prefer it-it had got a bit thin looking- hope I just shrink my body and my face stays carbed-up! He!
Also I got an IPL treatment a few weeks ago to get rid of my freckles (did I ever tell yall how much I hated them!!) The pain was unreal-like wasp stings--but sooo worth it! They're not all gone but lots are! Anyway I read that it also boosts your collagen so maybe that's it too!
Now I've nothing else to report only that I was gonna get my hair cut into a very short crop--I was really looking for a change and I was never confident enough to do it before, always hid behind long hair! (it's shoulder-length and layered now and I always wear it curled--to give my face width (obsessed or what! He!) Anyway I didn't do it and I am so so glad!! I think it was all the carbs that made my brain go fuzzy. Dunno how I ever thought I would like it!!
Ok my rambling is over now!!!

Girlies!!!

GT- Glad to see you back! I bet you looked cute with those freckles, but I would probably do the same if I had em. Good job sticking to plan and not chopping the hair off! i made a huge mistaqke a few weeks back and there is nothing I can do about it, but wait wait wait for it to grow!!! Problem is, its long on top and short in back, so as the back grows its gonna turn into a mullet- ahahaha. Gonna have to keep trimming it til everything else catches up! So glad to see you back!

So I stuck to plan and the results are in. changing stats from 131 to 127. I have a feeling Ive got my willpower back. Nothing is gonna stop me from getting to goal. Not even the halloween candy- bleck. Sooo not worth it, for that quick high and long crash and added 5 pounds for no reason..

Is it possible to catch a cold when you have a cold?Started coughing again last night! Im seriously sick of being sick!!! My ears are still blocked and I have to go back to work tomorrow. ugh. I havent been to work since 10/10. Thats crazy...2 weeks + vacation down the drain. Plus all the $$ wasted at the drs...

I feel so bad that I havent been around. still trying to get into the swing of things and feel like normal again. wishing everyone the best!!! You girls are doing great!! I promise I'll be back full force, soon enough!!

Big hugs!!!!

Oh, almost forgot- Ive been eating ground turkey and 2 eggs a day. Im cooking the eggs with a little Pam, and leaving the yolks a bit runny. its really good!!! (Im the one that never ate eggs on QWL) but times are changing!!! Also, Im still on coffee, CL and lots of meds. Now that Im back on meat, Im sure to get my health back!!!!

More big hugs!!! BBL
