I suggest we put our minds to it and get to goal no matter what it takes. Once we're there, then we will have an opportunity to cheat for a few days and jump back on plan.

If I didnt get to goal before my first cheat fest, I dont think I would have ever made it. It is my wish that everyone can get to their dream weight to really feel it and enjoy it, and hopefully have the cheats more under control when they happen. Im still working on this and working hard, but I have to say that stillman came up with a good plan. Get the weight off. Get it off quick, and then enjoy the extras. Jump back on plan if you see 3 extra pounds. (When I cheat for one day I usually see 10 extra pounds, but if that means for me, its one week on Stillmans, one day off, I think I can handle it)

Im rambling now but thats my next plan..hardcore stillmans, cheat on Christmas. Hardcore Stillmans, cheat on new years. Instead of telling myself Im gonna eat meat forever and then failing, I will say I will do the best I can and its ok to eat whatever I want every couple weeks. I just have to make sure its a one day free for all and not a 14 day free for all.

and looking deeper into my psyche...it think it all begins with my morning coffee. I drink a cup with 1 sweet and low and 4 creamers, and I can typically down 4-6 a day! Its like it doesnt register becasue its a liquid and it keeps me from eating. I should really just have 4-6 cups of tuna a day! My true test of willpower will be to drink that coffee black. I cant complain about my weight if Im not following the rules and cream is a definite rule breaker!

I'm back!!! Loving the new Avi..Al..

I still feel like crapola.. Soaked in my tub. .turned on the jets. .soaked my head. . held my breath. . did a few leg lifts. . Still feel awful. . OMG. .will someone remind me of this feeling the next time I think about cheating? I even downed Mylanta hoping that would take away the blahs. . my head won't stop pounding. .. . it must be a migraine which is why I feel like I wanna puke! Thank goodness I have no where I have to be today. . What a way to end a 4 days weekend!

Al..are you at work? Poor gal. . I think I'll take your advice and simmer down on the coffee, myself (starting tomorrow). I need it today. But you are exactly right. . my once in a while, SF creamer has turned into a big shot of full flavored (peppermint/mocha and gingerbread) indulgence. I think that is what gets me craving. the aftertaste after the first cup stays with me. . (sugar!!). . so I am positive that is my problem. . .I'll start my week with one or two cups O black Java and then switch to flavored Tea if I still feel like something. . I have boxes and boxes (free after coupons) so I have enough for the long winter. .

I'm cooking a ham today for my boys.. I was supposed to do it for Thanksgiving, along with the turkey and I forgot to take it out of the freezer! Dang.. I plan to have a little but will not overdo it because of the sodium. I have a little turkey left so I will make sure I fill my plate with that first. .

Speaking of Turkey.. did you guys load up? I ended up only buying 2 because my freezers were both too full. . I got em for .29 a pound . . Can't beat it. . I don't eat the dark meat but even just for the breast. . it was well worth it. . I will probably end up pulling the other one out of the freezer this week . , should try some turkey soup. .I'll have to go back through the posts to see if I can find the recipe. . unless Al want's to share, .(hint, hint)

OK. So first things Im gonna do tomorrow when I wake up is pee, weigh, and log into LCF. I will state my weight (which is probably up a tad bit more) and reinforce that I will be drinking my coffee black. thats exactly what I will do. (I will not let myself sleepwalk over to the keurig and start dumping that cream in..) its gonna be tough, but I'll do it for you guys and not for me! Im due for a little torture after the way Ive been indulging...

IM2 and her coupons.... no wonder Im broke, paying full price for everything!

Wow. This if freaky....I was just in last years october thread (looking for turkey)and I wrote the following:

"So I'm predicting that I can get to 135 by Thanksgiving. I love the torture so I can honestly say I won't be indulging in anything but turkey! Maybe even in the 120's by christmas!! Wouldn't that be the best present!"


I was exactly 135 when I got on the scale after this thanksgiving. I was so happy back then. Why cant I just be happy now!!! I know why. Because I got a taste of 120.....

Heres one of my versions....

"After I roast the turkey, and take all the meat off the bones, I fill the pot with water an inch past the bones. I read somewhere to add vinegar to pull the nutrients from the bones, so I do. A few splashes, at that. (1/4 cup) Add salt. Bring to just a boil, then simmer for hours. (like 4-5) The more you let it boil down, the more turkey flavored it is. When its almost done, I strain it and then I add pepper, italian seasoning or herbs de provence, and onion powder. Sometimes celery seed/salt. Cook 5-10 minutes more after adding the seasonings. Taste test, add more herbs if you like. Once the broth is done, you need to let it cool in the fridge for a while, then you can skim all the chunky fat off the top. The broth will turn to a gelatin in the fridge, so you'll then have to reheat and add the chopped turkey."

Wow IM, I'm amazed at how much we have in common! I'm glad your teeth aren't bothering you now. ! Oh your poor DS! 3 hours is a mighty long time for a young man to be in that chair!

I am back on Stillmans today, and going for the last 10 lbs! You won't need a root canal, that is caused from nerve damage over a long period of time... I believe. Hopefully you have an honest, old fashioned dentist...

CCgirl; I hope you enjoyed getting out that flute! Nothing like good music during the Holidays! The magnisum citrate that dehydrated me very well was oral solution and it generally comes in a glass bottle in the laxative section of the store. I got Safeways brand, lemon flavor because that is all there was. It does have sucrose in it as one of the last ingredients, but I still lost almost 8 lbs in 2 days. The day after my weigh in I gained four lbs back, but that was just water weight. I have 10 more lbs to lose on Stillman before I am personally satisfied with my weight. Thanksgving dinner gave my metabolism a chance to rebound, and made my Mom delighted that I actually ate more than pure protein... : ) It was a relief to my family...


Hey everyone... we can get our bodies better before the first of the year... so hang in there and while the rest of the world is having upheavals, we can go through whatever 2011 brings us, in healthier, happier bodies... now how is that for control?
Thanks Anything! That's pretty wild that you lost 8 lbs in 2 days! It sounds like we might be going into maintenance around the same time...that skeers me silly!!

I've thought about having a few cheat days...I don't mean a sugar binge...but maybe some bread or a sweet potato...I dunno...I'm skeered of that too!

I cant even face a pouch of tuna....how am I gonna do this peeps? ugh...

I think I have to unbutton my pants....thank goodness Im all alone today at work...
I feel so fat in some of my "10's" ... but some of my 12's are starting to hang. I think a lot of it has to do with the cut of the skirt...if it hugs my tummy or hips...blech...

I don't think I can eat tuna any more...I've really lost the appetite for that...I sure have missed my steak though...

Nice to be back on track...
Anything, I've made it through Thanksgiving fine, but tonight I am fighting the temptation to eat something stupid...I have to keep reminding myself that I would feel gross afterwards...

Anything, I hope you can get the surgery too...I understand that it can cause many hardships when you are extra big on top!
