Wow! That's a ton of liquid! How are you feeling drinking that much? I was keeping my intake somewhere in the 100's before, but I've slacked off a bit recently.

19 carbs though, that's great! I usually aim for under 20 a day myself

RaIn=I drink it all through out the day, so it's not so bad! I also throw in crystal light too! I know some people poo-poo the sweetners, but I've never had a problem. *shrugs*

Ohhhh I was sooo excited to get my Torani syrups in the mail and one was NOT SF! =( It was the only one I actually wanted to try! (SF Peanut Butter)

Boo! That stinks! Are you going to be able to have it replaced? I actually just bought the SF Peanut Butter from the farmer's market by me, and I'm really hoping it's good! I bought that one, the Almond Roca, and the Irish Cream

I don't like aspartame myself, but Splenda is okay! I find aspartame makes me stall for some reason so that's why I avoid it... which just bums me out because there goes SF Jello

Agreed! That's terrible Reminds me of when I tried to return something to Kmart one time that I bought using a gift card that I'd since thrown away... told them they'd need to issue me a NEW card for that reason, they said "okay," then proceeded to tell me they put it back on the old one When I told them I didn't HAVE the old one, and they'd have to remove the balance from it and put it on a new one they pretty much accused me of being a liar and trying to rob their company by somehow using the balance off two cards. Needless to say I never shopped there again whenever I could help it, because I never saw that money back!

That being said, the peanut butter syrup is good imo! I tried it last night... it doesn't taste or smell JUST like peanut butter. But it does taste/smell like those peanut butter hard candies whose name I can't remember right now. Or like the cookie part of a Nutter Butter

A little bit of good news, some TMI, and other ramblings!

Well first and foremost my good (no great news!) is I've broken my small stall! I am now 233! I was very patient (well sort of) AND here's the TMI part! I know it's truly weight loss, because loose stool! It's almost like I had some sf candy! That's how my fat comes out! Who would've thunk it?!

Well what am I doing lately??? I've become obsessed with my trombone again.. My little boy is a rising 6th grader and in our town that's when they start band! He chose (himself I didn't influence or push him the only thing i required is that he be in band) the trombone! That tickles me to no end! WELL I've still have most of my band geek friends from HS on my fb and of course I was talking about this incescantly! Unbeknownst to me my friend had started a non-profit community concert band! So I will be joining that! It's like we both get to have band! I let him play around with my horn today, because we haven't chosen his yet. I've had my beloved horn since 1993! Guys, that's twent years!!! It took a beating with marching season and me being an all around butthole to it.. It still plays great!

SO my two main obsessive search on the internet for hours on end are LCing and trombone (music, instruments, you tube videos)

Hey Rebecca! Congrats on the breakthrough!!!
I also was in band in school! Yay for band geeks!! I took the violin and flute, and my aunt gave me piano lessons I still play my flute at church, but not as much on the violin. I restarted piano lessons, but took a break during the holidays and haven't started back

No way, me too! I played trombone for a little while in jazz band and clarinet/saxophone when I was growing up... but in marching band/symphonic band I played the tuba/sousaphone

232 today!! 158 oz fluid and 20 carbs right on the dot!

We were treated by my FIL to Golden Corral tonight! I did awesome... I stuck to the meats! I did have seafood salad which is carby, but I had only a 4 carb meal the whole day before. I don't feel bad about it. I also had prime rib, macha chicken, and pot roast meat.

Definitely! I always thought I'd like to play again, but I never owned my tuba... I rented it. And they're VERY expensive unfortunately I do own a few guitars though and I sing (used to be section leader in choir, so I'm a geek to the max!) so at least I still have that in the meantime. Music is a HUGE passion of mine!

Well I'm 231 as of today!! I notice right before I have a weight loss I get loose stool (like I've just eaten SF candy). The next day there is a show of weight loss.

I've found a little bit of confidence in myself. I've decided to apply for a 911 dispatcher in my county. Before I would've been very intimidated, because of my weight. Now the only thing I'm intimidated about is my lack of work history, because I was trapped in my body.
I've been meditating on it, praying, and sending it out into the universe. If this path is meant for me, then it will happen.

I don't know about you guys, but I can REALLY tell I'm losing weight by my hands. I just looked down at them and they look like they belong on someone else's body. Weird!

Wow, that's great! Good luck to you with the application... I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you hear something soon

Yeah, my fingers have went from a 9.5 at my largest to a 6.5 or 7 now... probably 6.5 I'm happy and everything, but geez. My ring from my SO is kind of getting preeeeeetty loose on me these days, and it's titanium... so no resizing that. I could get those little cushion thingies that people use when their rings get too big but I wish my fingers would just stop shrinking already so I wouldn't have to! Hopefully I'm just about done, but who knew so much fat could be stored in someone's hands?

ETA: And yeah, they JUST bought it last month by the way for my birthday. And it's a 7, although I suspect with the smoothness of the band it fit slightly larger than a 7 in the first place. But still. One freaking month, fingers!

Thank you, Jinny! This board has helped me out 100 fold. I must have kicked my metabolism in high gear, because I'm losing about a pound a day! I know this won't the case forever, but it sure is helping me now. I'm making Corned Beef and Fried cabbage with bacon tonight with dinner. I'm going to have to "pay" out 6 carbs for a cup serving. That makes me sour. I pretty much stick with meat, eggs, and a small amount of dairy. It keeps me full and I don't mind the repetitive meals (yet!). I usually make my family a meat I want for dinner and then supplement their's with a veggie and starch. Lastnight I had eggs and sausage and they had Little Caesars. Thankfully pizza has never been my favorite food! I've never made a corned beef before and I hope Youtube hasn't steered me wrong! lol
