I won't give up!

After what seems like a million attempts at weight loss...I am back here *again* in desperation. My health is so bad, liver is fatty, no energy, in pain all the time, GERD, bad gallbladder, blood pressure is up, cholesterol is up, the list goes on.

To jump start, I am going to do a 20 lbs in 26 day challenge. I have a cruise that I am leaving for at the end of this month and I really want to feel better physically. I don't know of any other WOE that could get results like this so I am doing strict Stillman's for the next 26 days. I have my book ready to go and going to keep busy busy busy doing everything I can to keep from eating all the time.

My only concern is.....has anyone ever had health problems from doing this? Low fat and low carb seems like it could be dangerous. I am at the point where staying this fat is dangerous and life threatening so I am up for anything.

10/3/2013 and I am 220. I will post the # day with weight every day. I am sticking with fish, chicken, eggs, turkey, and water and that is it! Oh, and a multivitamin!

Actually woke up this morning at 217.6 on 10/3/2013 so I guess that is my real starting point. My goal is 199 so 18.6 lbs by 10/29! I'm ready. I have been staying busy blasting music and cleaning my house like crazy. Every time I feel weak, I am going to come here and read through threads and people's successes.

I honestly can't believe I even lost between yesterday and today...I ate like a pig! Had eggs, chicken, a little cheese, and a WHOLE Cornish game hen for dinner that I roasted for 1.5 hours. LOL

This is awesome! It really is working. Today I weighed in the same as yesterday but I feel really good and I know it will come off in time. :-) I wish I could be one of those folks who say they lost 20lbs the first week but oh well. LOL

Having a bad day today. Kids are running me around in circles in homeschool and also had a million errands to run on top of finding out I am negative in my checking account. UGH! Needless to say, the stress had me running to Hardees for a not so healthy breakfast/lunch so I am trying to be super super strict the rest of today and hopefully there won't be a gain tomorrow. I am flushing the heck out of myself with water right now!

Well today and tonight were such a bust! What a bad day. I am going to scrape my fat *&^ up off the floor and start back first thing in the morning. I know I do not want to get on the scale tomorrow but I will because it will hold me accountable and teach me a lesson ( I hope ) Going to post the result of this horrendous day tomorrow morning. UGH I feel horrible. I probably undid the whole last few days in just a couple hours worth of meals through the day.

I wouldn't be so hard on yourself. Life is really hard sometimes. Our brains/minds play tricks on us. I am in pain since Sunday evening/night and all my brain keeps telling me is, "Mashed potatoes and gravy will fix it, Pam." I know this is a false statement, yet I keep thinking where can I get mashed potatoes at 5 AM? The good news is I don't have any in the house and I am too freaking miserable to get dressed and go to the store. So I will just settle for my string cheese and water for now. But seriously get your fat *&^ up and start afresh. What is one day in the long run? One day. That's it. You can do this!

Thank you so much for the support! I was shocked this morning to see myself still at 215.4. I would have swore that I would have gained like crazy. Last night, I binged on watermelon (LOL Can you binge on a fruit really to break a diet?) and ended up not gaining. Wondering if it is because watermelon is such a good diuretic. I flushed a lot out this morning and late last night. Today was such a good day and I am doing great eating today.

10-7-2013 = 215.4
10-8-2013 = 215.4 Huh??? Wow. Didn't see that coming after last night!
