NEW WAYS FOR 10 DAYS CHALLENGE
 
So I'm sick and tired of sounding like a broken record. Yoyo dieting does nothing for self esteem. We've all been there, starting again and again and again with a hundred and one excuses each time. I have made the decision to take action! I am going to complete 10 clean days of Stillman's starting tomorrow Sunday 16th June. I will allow a small amount of both light mayo and low fat cheese. It does not effect my weight loss so this is clean eating for me. I'm feeling really good about this challenge and I make a promise that nothing, except a genuine act of God will derail me. Watch this space people I mean business! :sing:

Tiny 06-15-2013 04:26 PM

Ooooh! I will join you! I will have cream in my coffee, but other than that straight up Stillman. I saw on the other thread that you don't plan to weigh yourself until the end. I've never done that before, but it might be sort of exciting. Okay, so starting tomorrow I will weigh in the morning, then weigh again the morning of the 26th!

Gottalosetheweight 06-16-2013 11:18 AM

I'm ready to go along with you both, but I already know that dinner at Moms will be a struggle. Even though I told her I am starting a diet, she never offers healthy alternatives. Tomorrow, Monday, will be my official start day.

krissakris 06-16-2013 06:28 PM

I'm in! I don't weigh in either, but it's my first goal since I want to do vlc w stillmans. I hardly have pv days, but I may I'm case of emergency.

krissakris 06-17-2013 07:19 PM

How's everyone doing?

maepowers 06-17-2013 08:37 PM

Hi Kris, Tiny, MMslim, gotsa. I'm in with you. We all have our little particulars to do it our way but still in it together. That's great. Good luck to you all. I'm in it all the way with you gals. Mae

BrattyS 06-18-2013 08:03 AM

:)Welcome aboard, we can all do this. I'm not weighing in til tomorrow, Wed, which is the day of week I usually weigh in, so will post that then. But won't weigh in until 2 weeks are up too. I think going til the 2nd is great, and doing our WOE's til then, get off some lbs before 4th of July holiday. *Still gonna stay on it though, lol* Good luck to all. MP

I'm doing well but my 800 calorie goal has been bumped up to 1000. I've been working out so no need to get crazy just yet. I can't tell if it's pms or just in my head but sometimes I'm still hungry. I had an off weekend, but I find that gets me super motivated to eat clean. I've also noticed I eat entirely too much when I'm not paying attn to calories. I find food even stillman/Dukan friendly is a pleasant distraction from the stress of work. I drink a lot too but that's always a good thing. :) I can't wait to see 1 and 2 week progress/updates!

Hey Kris, maybe it is hidden emotional, think about if you really want something that bad, then decide. You can do this. Put your fork and plate down after each bite, found this helps me a lot and makes one more concious of what they are stuffing into their mouths. Just some abstract tips. I know you can do this. Here if you need the support! Mae
PS, does diong smaller meals spread out help you? What about a large breakfast then smaller meals during the day? Something to help curb the appetite, maybe like ACV or Lemon water? Green tea helps me. Just some thoughts. Mae

Happy Wednesday all! Hope everyone is doing well.
Weighed in this morning myself, it's usually on Wednesdays, early am. Overslept this morning, probably since I didn't go to bed til 3 am, lol.

The previous week around the 5th I was 248, having finally gotten under 250. Then when weighed in on the 12th, I went back up to 254.6 (Gaining about 6.6 llbs. :cry:) Today I am back under at 249.8! yippie I'll take it! :jumpjoy: That's a loss of 4.8 lbs. So 249.8 is my starting weight for the challenge. Now to stay under!. So sticking to strict ME/LC my way for 2 weeks to meet the challenge with the others. Go all of us.

I tend to eat many small thing throughout the day. I also keep a stash of hard boiled eggs in the fridge to just grab if I start to think about wanting to eat. It usually works. Hormones.. ugh. Mine hit at the beginning of the month and they almost always do me in.

Congrats being under 250. I know I feel SO great when I leave a decade of weight. I have been happy about leaving the 220s so many times! :D

Thanks, BratttyS. It's been awhile since I was in the 220s, but hoping by my Bday late next month to be there. I keep boiled eggs stashed in fridge too, helps, and sliced dill pickles help when the need arises. Hope you're doing well. M

Crap. I have to restart. Had wine (always the wine) a few days this week. Stress, needing to unwind, blah blah blah. Anyhoo. TOMORROW is exactly 3 weeks from my college reunion. So my restart is on Friday the 21st for 21 days.

Congrats to the others on your successes!!!

Good for you Bratty! Same here. My only bad this week, is that I ran out of H/H and HWC so had to have a little whole milk in my coffee today. Too hot out today to run to store. But don't think it will mess me up. Otherwise, just Tuna salad today and a cheese stick today, lots of water of course. Plus the coffee. I've got meals planned out for the week.

Good luck all. I'll post weigh in on wed. and then again next wed on the 3rd. I think we're all doing great. Go us!

PS: anyone heard from Makemeslim? Hope you're doing well, if you read this, we miss you.

I too was wondering about MMS. As for me, I drank wine again on Friday, but still lost weight. No wine saturday (yay me).

Also, I discovered a yummy treat. I tried the Jay Robb Whey protein that someone recommended, but found it tasted pretty bleh with only water. I just made an excellent afternoon pick me up by adding coffee, ice and a little half and half to the whey scoop and blending it up. Yummy! (Except for the fake taste of Stevia, but you can't have everything). Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

As God is my witness I plan to stay on plan this week! Stay strong y'all.

:jumpjoy::high5: WTG, Bratty! Let us know your menu. and is that actually 214.4? I'll be glad to get there. ROOTING FOR You!

Hey Tiny! Wow both Gotta lose and Bratty lost 7lbs in one week. Let us know your menu and if you exercised too.

Four the next 4 days my menu will look like this:
Breakfast: 3 egg white omlett with spinach, a side of cubed pork steak, fried in butter.
Lunch: Smash bowl of 1-2 eggs, a little mayo, some shredded cheese, maybe some meat in it.
Dinner: 1 piece of chicken, 3-egg yolk scramble with a dash of spice, sour cream and 1/4 tsp mayo & water. Scrambled up in butter. Lots of water of course.
Off on Tuesdays, but rest of the week, walking, weights, some other kind of cardio. Take care all. Mae

I'm your witness too, lol. You can stay on this. Here for support. I don't like Stevia, nasty after taste. I have to do without sweets mostly, don't like any artificial sweetner. Keep up the good work, Tiny, I know you can do it.:hugs:
