This Time = Last Time
Getting ready for the "last time" to start....1-2-12!:shake::aprayer: I have this same 12 pounds to lose to be back down to my losest weight toward my final goal. I've lost this 3 times already. Could have been at my goal weight already but I'm not!:annoyed: Getting my family back on the program too! We've all been out of control this past couple of months!

:help::help:I'm going to post my thoughts here and see if it helps keep me on track. I've read several threads that say it does and I could use all of the help I can get!! :help::help:

You can do it Leisha!:high5:

leisha 12-27-2011 04:18 PM

Thank you Jeaniem!!!:hugs: I'm going to be posting in our "just do something" thread again shortly too!

jeaniem 12-27-2011 04:33 PM

Ha! I guess I should get on the ball and post there as well since I started the thread.:o

leisha 01-01-2012 01:59 PM

Having my "last supper" in a little while. Black eyed peas, collards, corn bread, potato casserole, fried pork chops and sweet tea.:yummy: but :o. It's just such a southern tradition and my biggest problem is keeping my food out of my social! I'm going to work on that this year and find other ways to celebrate occasions.:aprayer:

bekki1 01-01-2012 02:43 PM

You can do this!!!

leisha 01-01-2012 04:27 PM

Thank you bekki1! :shake: I can hardly wait to get started tomorrow! It's supposed to be really cold here by tomorrow.....just when I planed to start walking again! I am going to do something inside anyway! I mean it!:D

leisha 01-01-2012 05:05 PM


The "last supper"!! Probably wouldn't really be all that bad if I just left off the corn bread and rice, huh:confused:

bekki1 01-02-2012 07:55 AM

Looks great and I know you will find even better dishes on this WOE.

leisha 01-03-2012 08:04 AM

I could not believe how badly I felt last night! I guess I was having "crap-withdrawls"! I slept better than in awhile and I was down 3 pounds this morning like I was pretty sure I would be, thank God! Fluid and bloat!! My fingers were even feeling tight! :o I enjoyed my holidays so much but I am paying the price now to get back to where I was....but I knew it was going to be like this so I'm just moving forward everyday! :aprayer:

leisha 01-03-2012 10:46 AM

Sitting here eating my taco salad on baby spinach leaves and drinking my water! :) Sure feels good to be back under control!!:jumpjoy:

leisha 01-03-2012 06:22 PM

I didn't have too many carbs today but I'm so sure I had way too many calories! :eggs::steak:As soon as I get into ketosis and quit feeling bad from my junk withdrawals I will start cutting calories and fat some! I just have to make it through these first few days back on low carb! :p:stars:

Psmileyf 01-04-2012 05:03 AM

Sounds like you are doing great!

I'd have such a hard time if I lived in the south where sweet tea was always around. It is a weakness for me...up here more places have it now, but it is not the same as it is in the south. I think they make it too sweet up here - which is probably good for me!

Best of luck today!

leisha 01-04-2012 05:34 PM

I walked a mile and ate less calories today!:high5: I think I'm feeling better from this cold too maybe. 22 this morning and 70 by tomorrow....no wonder we all stay sick this time of the year here! :stars:

Thanks psmileyf!! I love sweet tea too....but not too sweet! Lately I've learned to love iced unsweetened green tea! :yummy: Well, really it taste just like water!

leisha 01-05-2012 05:53 PM

:dunno:After 4 days back on low carb I don't really feel like I'm getting in to ketosis or getting my "low carb buzz" of energy like I used to. I also haven't lost hardly a pound and I was looking forward to a big, fast drop.:sad: Kind of disappointing but I'm not giving up! It will happen!:D

jeaniem 01-05-2012 05:57 PM

Hang in there Leisha!:hugs: I noticed that the more restarts I have the longer it takes me to get into ketosis. Just when I am about to assume l/c is not working things will pick up. Are you measuring too?

leisha 01-07-2012 06:37 PM

Good day food wise today! My appetite has been surpressed finally! :jumpjoy:

I ate 2 sausage patties with cheese at McDonalds this morning, a few almonds this afternoon and some pork roast with cheese and salsa tonight! I did find some lite and fit low carb yogurt at Walmart tonight so I think I'm going to have one for dessert!

leisha 01-08-2012 12:23 PM

Just had a small grilled ribeye, some sliced cheddar cheese and baby spinach with gouda and ranch. It was so good!:yummy: This while my family had chips and dip and made sandwiches with their steaks! :stars: I need to go walk but I just woke up from my Sunday afternoon nap, that I finally got to enjoy this afternoon and I just don't feel like it yet! Maybe I'll get it in before the new Bible study starts tonight!

Hello Leisha. The title of your journal caught my attention. I am so with you on this being "the last time." Best wishes, dear. :hugs:

leisha 01-11-2012 06:50 AM

Thank you! ...and good luck to you too!:hugs: I see you joined this site even before I did! LAST TIME for both of us!!:):D

Meek75 01-11-2012 08:05 AM

Yes, I joined back in 2004. Hit goal in 2006; maintained for 3.5 years and regained :doh:.

leisha 01-11-2012 05:10 PM

:doh:Me too....I get so mad at myself for having to lose these same pounds over and over again! I let myself get "out of control" at the end of every year just to have to go through losing again and then I get hung at 172 but I mean I'm going on down somehow this time and I'm staying there!

I just can't seem to get any energy to start exercising! I know what they say about making yourself do it for the first few times and then it gets easier and you want to do it....I just haven't MADE myself yet I guess! The weather has been so cold and rainy here but I guess it is everywhere, huh?

Meek75 01-11-2012 05:24 PM

Yes, its rough having to lose the same weight over and over again. I promise this is my last time. I never want to deal with this again. I use to be a gym rat, but lately I havent had the energy to go. It does get easier once you start, but "starting" has been a huge issue. We'll get it together girl :shake:.

If you click on my name, you'll see before and after pics during my first attempt. I look like the before pic again, lol.

leisha 01-11-2012 07:49 PM

Wow! Your pictures are amazing! Do you still swim?

We can do this....again....one more time....but this is the last time!:high5:

Meek75 01-12-2012 06:13 AM

Thank you so much. Nope, I haven't been to the pool in about 3 years. But... I have to take 2 PE courses this summer and I've chosen SWIMMING :clap:.


We can do this....again....one more time....but this is the last time!
I LOVE THIS!!! :shake: And... YES, WE CAN!!!

How long have you been back on plan? I haven't read your entire journal, but I will over the weekend.

I hope you have a great day!!

leisha 01-12-2012 06:20 AM

Back on plan only just since Jan 2nd! I have managed to lose 6 pounds since then but I figured it was going to be like that with all of the fluid weight I knew I was carrying! Now's when it gets hard for me when it slow down to 1 or 2 pounds a week!:sad: I don't know why I get discouraged though. I don't know if you do "Pinterest" or not but there's always that picture of the 1 pound of fat and I look at it and say "wow, that is a lot"! I'll have to post it here for motivation for us! :)

....I am scared of water! I can float for miles and I swim only as an emergency backup plan! I envy great swimmers. It looks like so much fun. Just like horse back riding but I'm scared to death of them too!

Meek75 01-12-2012 06:30 AM

Leisha, you're doing GREAT! 6 pounds is excellent! :clap: The experts say 1-2 pounds is losing at a healthy rate, right? I'm trying to be modest and more realistic this time around. My goal is to lose 5 pounds per month. Of course, I would love to lose more, but... :dunno:. Please post that pic when you can. I need all the motivation I can get, lol.

Don't be afraid of water... it's your best friend! I taught myself how to swim by watching a swim team practice at my local pool. I would sit there and watch them for hours. And, when they left, I'd jump in the water and mimic what I saw. I also watched lost of vids on YT. Now, swimming in the middle of the ocean is a different story. I'd probably freak out and drown. Isn't that crazy???!! :laugh:
