My HeArTs DeSiRe~ By MoNeT'

[COLOR="Purple"]It is my Hearts Desire to be healthy and loose this weight. For those of you who don't know me, my first name is Lisa, but I go by Monet' on here.. Monet' is my middle name.. like the Artist painting.. pronounced Mo Na,,,long A sound..lol.. a lot mispronounce it, so I thought I would help....

ok, moving on.. I started low carb last year.. in February.. did wonderful.. lost 80 pound rather quickly.. then I can to a stall.. and what a stall it was.. for weeks.. then months I didn't loose any thing.. I didn't gain either.. but I wasn't losing.. so I thought I would have a 2 week brake during the Christmas Holidays.. well.. that two weeks is still going.. so if I do anything, I hope others learn from me.. DON'T STOP.. DON'T GIVE UP.. DON'T TAKE A BRAKE... I haven't left LCF.. I have stayed here and tried to get back on track.. tried to get my MOJO back.. while in here, I have read many others journals.. and I have studied up on how others do.. some, like me, have been on and off.. while others have kept on keepin on and have done wonderful !!.. to those..... to thous of you like me.. I will keep you in my prayers because we all need Gods help...

[/COLOR]

[COLOR="SeaGreen"]I have to be honest here.. I have gained a lot of what I lost back.. 30 pounds the last I looked.. I can feel it.. REALLY feel it people.. and here is the scary part.. last week.. I felt heart palpitations (sp?).. and have off and off this past week.. so you see.. this is why its is MY HEARTS DESIRE.. so loose this extra weight.. I have made my heart work even harder then it was.. and this IS NOT good.... it scares me.. I am to young to have heart problems.. I can afford to have heart problems.. my kids don't deserve this.. my husband doesn't deserve this.. and NEITHER DO I.... I started out wanting to lose weight before I turned 40..I wanted to be at 150 by May 25 2008... I know that wont happen.. but I can give it my very best..[/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Those that know me.. have listened to me belly ache.. have read stories of my family.. I want to thank those of you that have stuck beside me through THICK or thin..that came in there knowing I was down and out.. and still left a "how are you today".. or "have a great day..".. its those people whom I adore.. ..like Candy says.. there are people on the Internet who you CAN trust.. who you CAN have a great friendship with.. and who WILL be there for you no matter what.. .. Love ya Candy Girl !!.. ( hope your having a fabulous time at the beach!!)...

Well I guess this is long enough.. all I ask for from my friends on here is their support.. help.. and prayers..because I need it more then you know..

thanks for listening.. and I hope to see you often... oh and any suggestions are SO welcome.. .. love and hugs.. from my to yours !!

Monet,
I truly sympathize with you. You can get back on track and do it. Dieting is very hard and can be easier with a lot of support. The most weight that I have ever lost was 27 lbs and that was on weight watchers. Weight watchers is very good and it works. It is just easy for me to get out of hand with it. I am trying Atkins this go round to see what I can do. This is hard for me because I don't eat veggies. How long did it take you to lose your 80 lbs the 1st time and what did you do?

Stephanie.. .. thanks for stoppin by.. ..

I love most of my weight the first 6 to 7 months.. then just a little here and there.. then the stall happened.. ..

but after reading on here.. that's normal.. they say your body plays tricks with you .. for instance.. it will hold on to those fat cells harder.. and it tries to get you to cheat so to speak.. to fill those fat cells back up.. and I have watched a few of these ladies.. and they stalled as well.. but they hung in there and low and behold.. their weight started dropping off again.... so.. I know I know what to expect.. I love this place.... the people on here are awesome.. ..

I wish you the very best hun.. do you have a journal? I would love to read it....

have a good night..

oh you asked what I did.. basically I stuck to induction.. I stayed 30 carbs or under a day.. I didn't buy anything real expensive.. I kept it simple.. when I got the hang of it.. I tried the recipes everyone so gladly shared.. and THAT sure helped so I didn't get bored.. .. I have many if you would like some.. ..

Monet I have lurked in your journel for soooo long and prayed for you! You are such an inspiration to everyone and I KNOW you can get your mojo back and lose this weight. You are such a positve, great, person. I also messed up around Christmas and just got back on track last week, (fingers crossed) tomorrow will be day 8 back on low-carb. When you truly realize it's a way of life, and the choices of food we have to eat are great, and satisfying and you don't have to starve, it's a great plan for life, we just get hard headed sometimes and want the stuff that isn't good for us So anyway, I'd like to introduce myself my name is Mary Beth and I'm another low carber who has messed up in the past but hopefully we can all reach our goals together with the support from this site! Tomorrrow is another day, make it the best day ever!

Hello Monet,
I was just stopping in to see how you were coming along. I don't have a journal and I don't even think that I could manage one at this time with a demanding job, boyfriend, and 2 year old. I just thought about the smallest I ever got was 323 lbs right after I had my son in 2005. I was 391 lbs at the time of delivery. I had a lot of fluid. When I went for my 2 week check up I was 323 lbs. I couldn't believe it. I made the person taking my weight bring me to another scale because I couldn't believe it. I was forgetting to eat because I was so busy with a newborn. Anyway, I was in a very bad marriage and of course I started to use food as comfort and gained all of my weight then some. I am now down to 368.2 and hope that I can continue to go down, down, down.

slight threadjack - to Mary Beth and Stephanie I think the hardest thing is to 'start' but once you do, the rest is a bit easier.

Hello ladies.. ..

yes, it is hard to get started.. let me tell you.. I did good all day... when I came home.. I just wanted everything.. I made Spaghetti for everyone.. and wanted it so bad.. so I got a can of asparagus out and heated it up in the micro wave.. and added the spaghetti sauce on top of it.. sounds kind yuck.. but it really wasn't all that bad.. I did add shredded cheese on top.. like they were using on theirs..lol..

so later I wanted a snack.. I told myself.. no.. your not hungry.. and I wasn't..but I have never HAD to be hungry to eat.. if it taste good.. it's mine.. .. so I repeated over and over in my head.. "your not hungry"..

did this work.. NO.. so I went to find a better choice then the smores I wanted.. so I cut up some strawberries and added splenda in them.. then mixed them with whipping cream....

I know strawberries aren't in induction..but they are way better then the smores.. right.... I so need to get control of my snacking wants..

on an up note.. I have drank water all day.. no sodas.. not even diet.. so.. I feel I did pretty good today.. .. step by step.. little by little.. I will get it under control !

I hope everyone had a great day today..

we WILL do this!!.... thanks my friends..
