I don't use the blog!! I just write everything here!! I don't think there are specific threads dedicated to before and after fotos for Stillmans--but there are pictures for Atkins etc. and they are really inspiring so look around the threads. If you want to put up or own pics then go into the usercontrol panel, albums and start uploading!!!!

I needed to post some motivation for ME - hopefully it will motivate some others.

Got on the scale this morning after 1 day of being back on Stillman's (the headache is still lingering but it's better) ......AND.........I am down 3 pounds!!

My new mini-goal is to be back at stats by Christmas!

One of my very first mini goals when I began this journey in March was to be able to go clothes shopping with my sister when she visits over Christmas. Well I can say that I have MET that goal!!! No more "big woman" sizes for me with limited styles to choose from.

Watch out Outlet Mall here we come...CHARGE!!!!!!

Howdy Gals! Ipad is supposed to be here today . . and guess what? Sick kid! I sent him to school this morning and they called around noon and asked me to come and get him. He's not sick, per sae. . but he can't quit coughing. .I can't figure it out. . No fever, no stuffiness. .nothing. .just a nagging cough. .sent cough drops with him but of course, they won't let him have those in school. .I'm debating about taking him to the Doc but when I called. they said its' probably allergies anyway. . plus they can't see him until tomorrow unless I wanted to take him to urgent care. . What to do? what to do? He's already been home for two days because of the snow and if it is allergies. .he can't stay home until those pass. . but his coughing is disruptive to the class. . tough one. . I suppose as a good mom I should drag him to the Doc's .. What a pain, though. . I don't know if there's much they can do, either. .

Wish my Ipad would get here. .I'd have something to do while I sat in urgent care waiting. .

We use Norton NOT Norton 360 (yuck). This time of year several places have it as low as $9.

I do not use the free online ones as the MAJORITY of the have adware and spyware embedded.

If he just has a cough I would use Robitussin Cough (either the liquid or the softgel tablets)

I'm starting kind of late in the game. But I was doing Atkins for about a month and I found Stillmans and became ADVENTUROUS!

I'm back! But I have a cold of some sort--headache-y and slightly nauseated. It's the weather--20 degrees--and the wind that's just killing this former California girl. I absolutely hate the cold, but I know it could be worse. Oh well, price I pay for living in a place I otherwise love!

Welcome newcomers! So excited you could join us. This is a great place for support and laughs!

IM2: I am so glad you are having so much success on WW. I do find Stillman's a little too restrictive with just eating meat and eggs, and I definitely miss my veggies. I think I would do better staying on plan and not cheating if I let myself eat the veggies I miss (broc, caul, spinach, lettuce), so I am seriously considering doing that, even though I know I won't lose as fast.

OMG, ten days til Christmas! I've got to stay in this zone. I am SO nervous about going back to California for the holidays--not because of my weight, and not because of temptation, but because I am afraid my family will criticize the way I'm eating and freak out. I hate being the center of attention. Obviously, they shouldn't be out of sorts as I AM overweight, but they just make me feel so self-conscious. It's truly unnerving. And the people-pleaser in me will feel pressured to NOT bring attention to myself and, for this reason, will make me want to eat what everyone else is eating just to avoid confrontation. Am I making any sense?

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a great day, and scored big on gifts I wasn't expecting. Got a beautiful Swarovski crystal pendant necklace (a delicate key) from my MIL (this is the only gift I've ever gotten from her that I love, as other random gifts in the past have included such things as leopard-print yoga pants). I also received a truly beautiful Burberry watch from my husband (after I told him not to get me anything for my birthday, since he took me on a trip in October). He's a gem, and he wrote me the sweetest card. I adore him, and I am SO lucky!

Honey and lemon is a really good cough suppressant

A really good FREE anti virus is Microsoft Security Essentials, you can dl it from microsoft's website.

That's SO great! Congratulations! No shopping for me, as I have a ton of clothes that I'm waiting to fit back in to. This, for me, will be more satisfying than buying new, as during the past year buying new clothes has been about purchasing bigger sizes. NO MORE!!!

We can do this!!! You are an inspiration!

Peeps, my weight is down one pound, I'm gonna have to change my stats back up to reflect my current weight though. (168.4). Eep!

Yesterday I made a yummy casserole... I cooked up some lean ground beef and ground sausage. I boiled some cabbaged, chopped it up into small pieces, added it to the meat, shredded in some farmers cheese, a bit of heavy cream and some stone ground mustard. It was delicious!!! But, I know I really need to cut back the carbs a bit more because 1-2 pounds a week isn't gonna cut it for me, you know I'm Miss Impatient!

This weather is terrible. 20some degrees and sooooo windy it just chills you to the bone! I'm having a hard time just staying warm in my apartment!! So, exercise hasn't been happening, at all. You know, putting on an aerobics video is probably exactly what I need though.
What's everyone having for dinner tonight? QUOTE]

O girl, that sounds awesome. I just went up to the barn to feed the outdoor kitties and it was a balmy fourteen!

Dinner is the usual...vodka with diet tonic

Maybe a couple of exercise machines in the room with me as well.

No other distractions/responsibilities allowed!!!
C'mon, Shar....look at that fat girl on the path behind you.........find your focus, you will be fine. You already know you can do this. We do, too!

I know he doesn't mean it--he's actually really nice--but he just says out exactly what he thinks-the first time he saw me after losing weight he goes "what happened to you,were you sick, did you want t lose it, what did you do"----all literally in one sentence. Oh and in front of everyone!!!!!And he has a cow of a secretary who went "ooooh I had to look twice--I didn't recognise you." --and gave me the up-and-down look.Anyway today he goes--"every time I see you you get thinner." I said (mumbled cos I know I talk about it a lot here -He!!!-but in the "real world" I hate it being mentioned) something like "oh i wish" and he goes "are you doing this on purpose" so I said "eh yes", and he goes "oh right, why???" I didn't really say anything!!
Then later during the meeting I said "oh I don't want any cream in my coffee" and he goes "oh cos it's got too many cals!!" I know he was only messing but still.
Then we were sitting there (in a group) and I had my sleeves rolled up and he actually put his hand around my wrist and goes "OMG you really are so thin"......now by this time I wanted to run away and hide somewhere!!!!!
Comes to dinner time and I order the salad---and he watched every bit that went into my mouth-I kid you not--along with everyone else who was sitting there---I actually wanted to puke!!
So at the end he says can I give you a hug (cos he's German and they'd always asked--no touching allowed!!) and he says I really think you're thin enough, the next time I see you I hope you won't have lost anymore!!
Now he really is a sweetie and really funny and witty (his secretary is a cow!!) but I really can't stand it when people keep mentioning my weight or watching what I eat!! Rant over!! ...oh and don't have to see him till March again!!..............oh yeah and I intend to have lost more---might have to wear a big sweater that day tho!!!!!
Girl this man is HOT for you...run! Those arrogant Arians...(yep, thats me)always blurting out what the world doesn't want to hear LOL

I will start back to the gym in January and do the Gold's Gym challenge and will likely weigh daily and measure weekly then.

How much weight have you seen people lose in a month when following Stillman's? I'm just curious what I can possibly expect if I remain strict.

I love eating this way and always feel so much better and have so much more energy when I'm low carbing.


Thanks for the support!
Holy cow Go girl you go!

Tomorrow, the 15th I am going in to have my breast reduction... all thoughts and prayers will be appreciated.
So, to every one of my lo carb friends, a great big THANK YOU for helping me make this breast reduction possible. I could not have lost the weight to qualify if it had not been for you all. So, as I go in, you shall all be in my thoughts... I can not tell each of you enough how much you are appreciated.

I will be out of it for a few days perhaps. But will check in... Love you all, and I mean it! THANK YOU!
Oh girl, good luck, Goddess bless and may you have the boobs of your dreams!

Got on the scale this morning after 1 day of being back on Stillman's (the headache is still lingering but it's better) ......AND.........I am down 3 pounds!!

My new mini-goal is to be back at stats by Christmas!

One of my very first mini goals when I began this journey in March was to be able to go clothes shopping with my sister when she visits over Christmas. Well I can say that I have MET that goal!!! No more "big woman" sizes for me with limited styles to choose from.

Watch out Outlet Mall here we come...CHARGE!!!!!!
YAY and jealous.........sorry!

What to do? He's already been home for two days because of the snow and if it is allergies. .. I suppose as a good mom I should drag him to the Doc's ..

OK...if it's an allergy the chlorphorinamine maleate 4 mg. will tell you in one hour after taking...same as ChlorTimetron but the generic is ten bux at Wal Mart or Rite Aid.

He may have a post nasal drip irritating the throat.....so he has mucus and is swallowing, not blowing (hard to do in public) and it's not making it out of the nose.........so a cough med with decongestant and cough suppressant should do the trick. And some lozenges for school.
IDK, I'm just a label reader and former stepmom.....

you need AdAware for stopping pop ups..and you need to reset your browser's security to medium high. Anti virus will not stop pop ups.

I hate to disagree with y'all but any real computer geek will tell you that Norton is CRAP. (Al, get your hubby and back me up here) AVG anti virus guard free or Avira free are the best ones.

IM-when you get popus like that it's called a browser hijack....you need to clean out your cache files and temporary ones. There's a great program also free called Advanced System Care free that I use on all my pc's when they get sluggish........with kids there are so many temp files cuz they are all over the place on the web you may want to use it every day.

Thank you for all the info on the Virus protection. . I'll have to go back tomorrow.. (when I;m sober.. yep.. hitting the sauce tonight - but I am counting it . I can legally have one more and I'm happy about that I'm just feeling a little anxious for Christmas.. I want to make sure all the kiddies are happy and have an even amount of gifts! Most years.. I'm all over it. this year.. I'm so far behind.. plus..I bought that stupid Ipad before I made sure they were all A-OKay.. such a bad mom.. I didn't even buy hubby anything and I always do. even though we always promise not to.. .OMG. .I've officially become that girl...Awwwww...Shame on me! However..I'm not eating.. I'm obsessive but I'm not eating..
