Getting ready for a MARCH WEIGHTLOSS MADNESS!! 2014 Stillman's Diet Challenge!!!!

Hello LCF's,

I saw there was a challenge in February that I missed and so, I am hoping there are a few late comers or some newbies ready to get it poppin too! lol I am starting this Sunday March 2, If anyone is up for a MARCH WEIGHTLOSS MADNESS challenge please join in.

I have done The Fat Fast, and its pretty much the same minus the fat. lol. I have all of Stillmans original books including the DQW Diet cookbook and I have the Doctor's Quick Teenage Diet that my son (14) has done and will be continuing doing with me. My son was 220lbs 5"8 he is now 190lb. Nothing has ever helped him lose weight and enjoying eating like this teen diet is doing for him. His confidence is soaring and he is playing sports again!

So please join us we would love the company!!!

My weight loss goal
I'm 5'4
starting weight ~~168lb
Goal weight ~~~~135lb

Later!!!
MARCH WEIGHTLOSS MADNESS!!!

Hi Angelmoon!

I will give it a try with you! I was looking at the Stillmans diet for a couple days as my typical LCHF just isn't getting the lbs moving. Last time I had success I was also keeping my fat content down. I'm already keto adapted, don't care much for veggies to begin with, so I think I'm the perfect candidate lol (although I will miss the bacon!). I started on my Weight loss journey on Feb 1, and lost 11 lbs. (sounds great, but was mostly water and glycogen, then completely stalled for a week and a half).

So how do these challenges work? Will we post our daily weigh? discuss challenges/success? It's my first time....

I will join too!

I have done stills and it works great! I just started again a couple days ago. Right now I am posting in the M&E thread because no one was answering my posts on the current board and it wasn't very busy and I need support of other people doing this diet because its hard, but I will come and post here too!

I'm going to join you girls soon! Have done this before for 1-2 weeks and saw great results. Can't wait to start again but need some motivation from you here...I really am addicted to sugar and sweets that's why I cant keep up for longer periods,but this time I will stick to stillman until I see 57 kilos on the scale.

I'm in too! Starting to cut down on the carbs this week, and will begin "strict Stillmans" beginning Saturday, March 1!

This is truly the *only* eating plan that helps to curb my (HUGE) appetite.

So is everyone starting March 1st? Or are there a few of us (aside from the February ladies) who have started already? I started 4 days ago and I am down 3 lbs but I am eating higher fat right now to get myself in to it then I will just higher fat days here and there.

I had/have super bad sugar cravings so I find it always helps to have a higher fat first week to really get into it.

I plan to stick with stills until I get off all this weight (40lbs) I have gained since September. Last time i look me about 1.5-2 months to lose 30 or so lbs. What about everyone else?

I just started today. Doing good so far. Lots of chicken and turkey, that's for sure! Pretty bland, but spices do help!

B - 3 omega fortified hard boiled eggs, 1 chicken burger
L - two ground turkey/chicken "muffins"
D - 4-8oz grilled chicken (depending on hunger)

I've trying to down 3 liters of water for the day. I had a few cups of two and two cups of black coffee. I use pure stevia to sweeten since it has a 0 glycemic index.

I'm going to try! I want to do it March 1st-20th with some higher fat days as well. I'm at 180 today and every other day I see 179 on the scale, I'd like to see that number two days in a row. lol I was a bit disappointed that I only lost 3 pounds in February so I'm hoping I'll get to see some steady loss in March with Stillmans!

One more day till march! Stock your fridges if you are not already mid-challenge! For those new to Stillmans, I suggest lots of lean turkey burgers, chicken, cottage cheese (though, for me I could easily binge on cottage cheese i love it so much, so I swapped it out for laughing cow lowfat wedges...ill have one alone for a snack, or spread on a turkey burger), and eggs!!!! Oh, and seeing katchup is allowed, Heinz low sugar is great to add a bit of flavor to meals. Its 1 carb per serving. And drink that WATER!

Let's do this. I've started today on the Stillmans! Yesterday I had a very low carb day with some LEAN hotdogs for lunch and Lean hotdogs with cottage cheese for dinner and pounded the water down all day. Did have coffee with half and half in the morning and a coke zero with lunch so I wont really count that as officially starting Stillamas until today.
Thanks everyone for all the great advise. I'm really excited to try this and see how it works for me. Sound like this is a VERY effective plan if stuck to by the T. I forgot to weigh myself this morning so don't know official starting weight but will keep track from tomorrow on. Lets get it done people!

Hope everyone that has already started is doing well! I didn't eat dinner last night as I wasn't hungry. I forced three hard boiled eggs and chicken this morning, but I have half in the fridge to eat after I come back from my morning math class.

I haven't weighed myself since starting, but I will weigh myself tomorrow so I can see what weight I'm starting at for the month of March.

Last day of February! Let's all nail March!
Yesterday I had 1 cup of tea and 1 cup of coffee for breakfast (wasn't hungry at all)
Lunch was a can of chicken
Dinner was 2 lean hotdogs, 2 slices of turkey ham, and 1 egg.
TONS OF WATER.
I find it a lot better for me mentally to write about what I had and continue to post my success and to hear about yours. Let's do this together! I'm ready! Everyone enjoy your last day of February and let's make March the best weight loss month EVER!

Morning ladies! I posted on the Feb board but I'll post here. I finally broke through the 188-187 hold, and make it to 186.9! Not very far past..... but I'll take it! Staying good on Stillmans pays off! I skipped yoga today... so I'll try the Zumba class at the gym tonight. I need to run but it's rainy and cold..... and I hate running on the treadmill. So Zumba it is. I've done it before, but not at this gym. They only hold classes at 7:45pm... which is kind of late but I'll work it.

I will back at it tomorrow for another 30 day challenge, My total loss for Feb, was 12 pounds with a 2 week stall, I had my testing done on my thyroid yesterday , waiting results on that, But I am still in it to win it, I havent weighed the last 2 days my last weigh in i was at 200.5 on Wednesday 2/26 which completed my first 30 day challenge, i have been eating some sugar and fat and i got my monthly friend yesterday, so i am sure my beginning weight for March will be up somewhat, but thats OK, It will come off , These message boards are an inspiration for me, and I love that I can be totally honest without Judgement but have the encouragment to stay on track....so good luck everyone , see u tomorrow with the stats

Wow you have done GREAT, especially considering that you weren't at a *higher* starting weight to begin with---very inspirational!

Quote:
My total loss for Feb, was 12 pounds
Wow you did great too! I'm sure that stall was mega-frustrating, but on the bright side you weight 12 pounds less than you did a month ago--yippee! That's A LOT better than I can say for myself, unfortunately. Ready to turn it around though.

WOE: Not low carb, but low crap
Hello everyone!

I have been reading so many success stories here with the stillmans challenge, so I will HAVE to give this another try. I don't expect any huge drops because I have been low carbing all along, but this time around I want to drop the fat and see if it makes a difference. Not sure if I will make it through all of March but I sure as heck will try!

Day 1---189.2



Good luck everyone!
