Doing pretty good now. Got derailed for about a year and gained a lot of the weight I lost back -- so I restarted on 7/22 (for the umpteenth time) and this time it has stuck. Lost seven pounds in week one induction, started exercising a little, and think I am inthe right mindset to go all the way this time! Goal is to reach 140 before my 40th birthday in April -- which is roughly 6-7 lbs a month which should certainly be doable. I miss all of you guys though! Especially Olivia! She was always so upbeat and inspirational

Hello Ladies! I have not been here in a while trying to get a grip on my life. Hubby is about to deploy at the end of the month and I am really not looking forward to that long lonely year!!!! I always eat when I am lonely and depressed so I am really worried about him being gone so long...

I do have some fantastic news though... I am under 200 pounds!! I am 196.... I have lost almost 100 pounds!!!! I still feel fat. When I think about myself I still feel bigger...
I am in a size 16 jeans....

Sobby! Congrats on your loss! 100 lbs is amazing. You and I are the same weight and size. Sorry about the deployment but you are strong and I know you can get through it. I am generally a stress/depression eater too but try to find something else to do instead. You don't want to undo all your hard work and just think about how great you will look when your husband gets back!

thanks, that is one thing that is helping me. I want to weigh less than my hubby when he gets back but I am worried he will lose weight too.. LOL that will mean I have to lose more than what I have planned...

K....its been 2 years since I joined this site. I reread all the posts since last march. Ive had my ups and downs .

Since last year Ive gained 70lbs. Thats so extreme.

I have got to get my act together...seriously! I am feeling this weight more and more each day. It also kinda of does something to you when your child keeps pointing out all your big areas.

Anyways.....1 day at a time....1lb at a time!

.....................

How is everyone doing?

*Actions Speak Louder Then Words*

Oh Im going to!!! lol.....

Ive started on day 1. So Im just going to keep going as tough as the beginning may be.

Tonight I am going to make Sauteed buttered cabbage and Chicken. Something simple that I already have in my fridge.

Im hungry so I may make some more eggs, no I'll have a cheese stick and some hot tea. Just to take the edge off.

You know whats funny. I hate bread, but I eat it. I hate Starches but I consume them. Whats the point? I do NOT know.......Its sickening. Im soooo over sugar and all that. Its not made me happy, it hasnt filled a void, it has not done one good thing for me but packed on the weight.

My biggest thing now is to get into the swing of eating at least 3 meals a day. I have become acostum to eating once or twice and obviously not choice decisions or portions.

I need to work on portion control and this time around I will be concentrating on calories too.

I can do this. I need my mojo back and right now i have no clue where Liv is!! I just turned 33 but i feel so sluggish and withdrawn and its not where I want to be.

The list can go on and on..but like I told Tara awhile back, I just feel like everytime I talk about doing this I end up sabotaging my first week in and that Im constantly emabarresing myself when I dont follow through.

........................"Actions Speak Louder Then Words".....................

That's it ....That's all!!

Today is a new day! I plan to get out and enjoy it! Scale was down to 192.6 this morning --- definitely a move in the right direction

Liv: Hope you have a great day! Get focused and set a plan (you will need this when you make your first LC grocery store run)... The easiest time to go off plan is when you do not have LC options readily available. Also pull out a full body photo from you at your lowest weight and a current one and stick them on the fridge, next to a picture of your babies .... That helps me remember to make good choices when I get the "munchies".

Cheering for the team Olivia!! If it is any consolation.. I am at 210, my heaviest in 5 years! I though I would never see 200 again.. I started P90X with Cat.. and it is hard!! But I am looking forward to the results.. I too am sluggish and withdrawn, don't even want to go to any functions because of my size

You are not alone Liv, we are all here for you.. Keep that beautiful head up and keep posting! Good or bad, we will be here for you!

Hi Tara ....Hi Ammie!!!!

Ok today is day 3.....and let me tell you, yesterday afternoon I was fiening sooooo bad for some carbs!! We had bought some cupcakes a few days back and they were staring me down so bad yesterdy. I was being hostile and I was mad cause I was eliminating these things.
Needless to say, I got through it and felt better for doing it and not giving in. I did have some cottage cheese last night with literally a tip of a tsp dab of strawberry jam mixed in. I know its not allowed I suppose I could of done worse.
.................................................. ....................
Yesterday's menu was:

1 Smoked Cheddar sausage for late breakie/lunch

another smoked cheddar sausage around 5pm

For dinner I made Chix Parmesaen and salad.

I had coffee, tons of water and some tea.

.................................................. ................
Today's menu:

2 lunchmeat lettuce wraps for late breakfast

lunch will be some eggs.

Dinner will be grilled chicken and zuchinni
.................................................. ..........

I did weigh today from friday and Im down 3.5 lbs. but im still in my "bounce window" so this down weight doesnt feel like anything to be proud of. I will weigh again on friday.

Well just wanted to check in.......I will post again later.

Just typed a long reply and lost it ... dang it!

Olivia: Good job on making good food choices. I did not do so good today since I ate a piece of German Chocolate Cake ...

But, I am admitting it and moving on. Since this is a lifstyle change, there will be times when we really feel that we want to eat something not on plan... to me, the key will be stopping there and not letting it derail me. Willpower is not something I have a lot of!

Thank you Tara!

This is soooo a lifestyle change. We know that. Its so much easier to just eat whats fast, what tastes good or just whatever we want. The fact of the matter is, is that its exactly why we bumped and jumped back up.

You have done well with getting back up and on the wagon again. I am glad you kept on me and I know that is exactly what I needed.

Ultimately, NO ONE ELSE WOULD HAVE not even myself.

Thank you so very much!!!

Today went well. I stayed on track and drank plenty of fluids. Im very proud of myself for sticking with this for these days. Having the kids home from school this weekend was trying with all the meals, BUT I DID IT!!!!!!

Ending the day with a lil bit of a foggy head and tired. I suppose this is a bit of the "flu". Im glad to be doing this though.

I grilled zuchinni tonight for dinner. Marinated in a bit of grape oil, salt and pepper. It was so good. I have not had that in over a year. It was very tasty ...I think I found a new grill love!!!


Day 4 starts tomorrow.


1 day/1 lb at a time!!!!!

Ok.....Im tired. I think the induction flu is officially here today. Im so happy I have stuck to this for these last 4 days. I was looking at some of my skinny me pics from when I lost in 2009/10 and I want that again. I felt energetic and comfortable in my skin.

She will return!!!!

I logged into ****** earlier today and did my numbers and set a goal to reach 200 by june of next year. That is completely doable...I know it is!!! If I get lower then that by then even better!!

Im so excited right now......Im feelin' the "push"!!!!

Tomorrow's day 5

Way to go Liv! I am actually feeling a little discouraged today cause I'm not feeling all that great and weight is up (probably because I'm not feeling good) ... This will pass though...

Hope you have a wonderful day

I loved Knott's Berry Farm when we went on our vacation a few years ago --- but don't think I am going to make it there anytime soon. My DH is taking me to San Francisco for a long weekend on my birthday though!

Don't get discouraged with the weight stuff... stay on plan and you will be dropping before you know it. I will say that this time around the weight is not just falling off like it seemed to last time ... but it is going in the right direction generally...

My menu for the day has been:

B: 1 egg and 1 sausage pattie
S: Mozz string cheese stick
L: Sashimi (8 piece assorted)
S: about 10 almonds and 3 pieces of Sugar Free Candy (I know this is TMI but I am hoping the sugar alcohols will work to help with the tummy problems)
D: Chicken Fettucini made with the Ragu sauce (which is only 2 net carbs per 1/4 cup) and Dreamfield's spaghetti.

I know some people don't use Dreamfield's or the LC tortillas but I know myself and I would absolutely not be able to stick to plan if I couldn't have them occassionally....

Yes a nice big whoosh!!!

I think my lack of a loss is due to a the tummy issue thing too. those sugar alcohols will get things going lol.

I wish I had some yerba mate tea. its great for that problem...lol.

Your menu looks on point today. My food planning is pretty tight right now and I am having to work around not having any eggs left til friday night. Like ive said before, its so much easier to eat crap food cause its cheaper...but i think I might just be able to make it these next few days with what I have. I hope...arrrrrgh...lol

Menu planning is kind of hard and lunch time for me is also pretty hard. It would be so much easier just to go through a drive through or the chinese buffett. I avoid those now so as not to be tempted by off plan foods.

I really need to start planning a little better as it helps me stay on track... Still waiting for my whooshie --- scale was still the same this morning despite drinking a lot of water yesterday

6 days in and its going. I was all kinds of craving last night. Really horribly! I had some shrimp that I needed to cook up so I made shrimp, chicken and salad for dinner. I ate about 7 medium sized pan cooked shrimp and a very small piece of a chicken breast. Im wondering if the shrimp made me crave.....either way I drank 3 glasses of iced tea to stay full and to get a bit of a "sweet" (stevia) fix.

My scale measures body fat, body mass and water so I did my stats yesterday as well as today. Apparently today I am up 2lbs, down .5 % water, up .1% bmi and down 1.6% body fat.

Ok ....2lbs up and 1.6% down for body fat. Thats good, right?

Anyways......sticking to this thorugh and through.....I can do this!!!



Todays eats were.....


A stuffed chicken thigh with mozzo/bacon 3carbs from walmart. It was pretty filling too!


Tonight Im making WhiteCastle Meat pie and green beans.


TOM should be on the way in for next week so I prolly will be losing slowly now til its gone. I hope not. I start bloating and retainging long before tom rears its head. ughhhh.......
