week one complete !! IT WORKS!!
 
Hi everyone I started strict QWL a week ago. I have managed to lose an amazing 16 lbs!!!! Only complication I'm dealing with is not being able to move my bowels to put it nicely lol. Any advice would be appreciated greatly! I did try coffee cheated with 1.5 tablespoons sugar free creamer hoping that would work,I just can't drink it black.

AWESOME, TRISHALYNNE! ISN'T THIS DIET AMAZING!

I always take 800 mg. of Magnisum at bedtime and then in the morning, I will drink a Senna Tea along with my coffee. Works every time.

also, make sure to get all your water in as well.

So proud of your success! What have you been eating mostly, as this is incredible success. Isn't not being hungry the bomb?

Hugs, and KUTGW!:high5:

I'm going to try those both , thank you! Oh I have tracked my food and fluid intake from day one. I posted 2 days in the 21day thread. I'm drinking 100 to 140 oz a day also. I know I've never felt this way about food! I made pancakes tonight and they smelled so good but I DID it! Not a nibble now I did run out of the kitchen and nibbled on some chicken lol! But I made it through, I told myself is a piece of pancake is NOT worth getting out of ketosis! Heck no! I worked hard though those first few days fighting cravings! I'm also testing dark purple now for the last few days:D

You go girl:high5:

Callianna 08-22-2013 08:32 PM

Trisha, do you use any artificial sweeteners or diet drinks? They've been such a help to me in making it through the first few days, but I'm worried about whether they will slow my weight loss.

Callianna 08-22-2013 10:17 PM

Hey, another question, Trisha, sorry to bug, but I want results like yours! So let's see, you are not using salt, you said-- don't know how you do it, with eating meat! And also, looking at your menu, you're eating really low calorie, right? And I think I read that you were using cottage cheese... anything else you can add about what you're eating/drinking or not eating/drinking would be welcome! We are starting out at right about the same weight, so I hope I'll have a similar first week-- although, it sounds like you have a very active life, where mine is very sedentary, and I'm older-- I'm 59. So things might go slower for me till I can move around more comfortably.

Thanks... Calli

Hi there
Ask as many questions as you like. I'm on my cell phone now so it might not get all my words correct. with the artificial sweetener I started with like a cup and a half in a gallon(before stills!] and now I'm down to like 1/4 to 1/3 cup. I'm normally a sweet and bread addict! Yes low calorie low fat low carb here's my menu my first few days
8-15
4 oz chicken
2 pc deli ham
4 oz chicken (grilled)
423 Cal

8-16
1 egg..rolled in deli ham
4oz lean beef (burger with mustard)
1/2 cup cottage cheese

Ok I need to end this post right now. Need to get to DMV

For my moms motorcycle test to see if she gets her endorsement and might need my helmet. Oh real fast with the salt, salt substitute I'll get name later . also addicted to salt I would put it on everything. I'll finish posting later wanted to get back to you. :hiya:

Callianna 08-23-2013 11:03 AM

Wow, Trisha, I'm eating 2-3 times as much as you! I've been at about 1000-1300 a day... going any lower would scare me (and make me cranky). But who knows, I may end up eating less if my appetite goes away.

Thanks so much for the response and posting your food!

no problem anytime just remember our bodies are different, so you have to suit this to the way you need to lose weight , and something that you're going to be able to stick to in the long run. I know my second day, last Friday I did higher fat content so today I'm going to do higher fat content. it was also the day I did the cottage cheese the only other time I use the cottage cheese was to make the deviled eggs. so in a week I've had just over a half of a cup.. like I said before the second day was probably the hardest for me after that I started to totally lose my appetite where I would actually force myself to eat. yeah I'm pretty active I worked a hundred hours last week 70 hours this week I have four little boys and I'm a pre-law student.. I am taking this semester off to fix me and show backup as a healthier person I wish you the best and if you need anything get ahold of me and I will be watching progress I know you will do wonderful.

Callianna 08-23-2013 12:52 PM

So it looks like you're avoiding the dairy pretty much then... good to know.

TrishaLynn 08-23-2013 01:00 PM

Yes because I love cheese! it would trigger me. I like being restricted I've never tried anything like this before and I'm really enjoying it. I've been runningall day today so when I got home I weighed a steak cut 4 oz off and grilled it. So far that's it.. It satisfied me but I cooked only what I was going to eat otherwise I probably would have ate more :)

Hello TrishaLynn. Try a senna tea called Organic Smooth Move. There are different flavors but I've only tried original and peppermint flavor which to me tastes great unsweetened. It works. If you have Kroger it will be in one of the organic food aisles.

senna tea may have some bad side effects for some folks

Hello Trisha, just wondering how you're doing with your weightloss. I'm new and about to start QWL tomorrow. I saw your awesome results and was just wondering if you were able to maintain your losses? Hope all is well with you.

kitty_el 11-07-2013 11:40 AM

Just read this thread, I would also be interested if you managed to maintain your losses :)

I'd lie to learn more about Stillman's. When I have some catching up to do with my weightloss, my general fallback is zero carb or Atkins induction. Stillman's is lower fat? I will go read the post it's.
