Did you ever get the Weight Loss Apocalypse book? It talks about leptin and how we need to train ourselves to eat only three times per day and only when hungry in order to control our leptin levels. Interesting stuff!

TGIF We are heading to the lake today after work - wooo hooo!!! It's supposed to be like 99 degrees in Pittsburgh today At least in the mountains it's always about 9 degrees cooler Good friends of ours are joining us so it should be a nice weekend.

TOM still hasn't shown up and now he's a few days late PMS is kicking my butt plus this heat is making me feel all swollen. Pushing water, water, and more water. Weight is still holding around 190 so I guess I can't complain.

Hope everyone has a great weekend

Katy ~ I need to get this book!!! I should check my library before ordering though Her videos are really inspiring.

Gosh I hate Mondays!!! TOM is still playing tricks with me but I believe he has finally made his appearance. I'm having lovely cramps and irritability today We had a fantabulous weekend at the lake - it always goes so darn fast. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. It was in the 90's and lots of sun. I got a nice tan going My eating was okay. I ate pretty much whatever everyone else was having. Today I am doing a good DD and starting my rotations of DD/UD/DD and I will weigh possibly on Thursday morning. With TOM coming, sun, heat, and eating some carbs, I would only be driving myself nuts if I'd weigh today!!! I haven't eaten anything yet and it's nearly 2 pm so I'm trying to hold out until dinner. Probably going to have baked chicken thighs and maybe some brocolli. Hope everyone is doing well

Yesterday turned into the day from hell! I was driving to a sales meeting and popped in a piece of sugarless gum. Well, my tooth starting hurting and wouldn't stop. I got in to the see the dentist around 4:30 and my most left upper tooth was cracked He gave me novacaine and then put some kind of medicine that smelled like cloves in it I have to go back in 4-6 weeks to see how it's holding up. I may need a root canal and/or crown.

My eating was okay because my tooth was hurting I kept it low-carb and no sugar. TOM still hasn't made a full appearance. I've had a spot here and there but nothing substantial. I'm not sure what the heck is going on I just wish it would come so it's done and over with by next Friday when we leave for vacation. I would really like to be firmly in the 180's before vacation so I'm going to try and behave for the next 10 days

Sorry about your tooth!! how strange from a pc of gum?? Hope the stuff holds it so you don't have to do the crown/root canal. I have had my share of those! UGH!!

I guess one way to not eat is to have pain huh?...not the best way.. but hey, whatever works! Hope you get to your goal before you leave, have a fantastic vacay!! 10 days, is plenty of time!

The crack was there for a while - the gum aggravated it! Apparently the crack caused a pocket to form in my gums (YUCK) and food was getting stuck up there The gum must've pushed the food and caused it to hit a nerve. I'm hoping this medicine stays put and I don't need any further work done - I've always been afraid of the dentist

10 days seems like enough time but we are going to the lake this weekend I'm always "good" during the week and then Friday ..... well you know

Yesterday I ended up doing a sort of steak day. I had coffee for breakfast with cream and equal, then I waited until dinner. I had a yummy delmonico - probably about 12 ounces or more and sauteed mushrooms. Then later on I had some decaf coffee w/cream and vanilla syrup My weight this morning was 191.0 lbs. so I'm hanging in there. TOM is still not here all the way I'm thinking maybe the antibiotics somehow screwed with it. Hoping it comes and go by next Friday for vacation. Last night my throat started to hurt though

Today is my 15th wedding anniversary I plan on fasting until dinner and going out with hubby to a nice dinner and possibly the casino. My MIL is coming over to watch the kiddies so we can go out Hope everyone reading has a fantastic day!

Yesterday me and hubby went to the casino and never did eat dinner I ended up eating buffalo wings around 1:00 am. There weren't many choices - reubens, fries, wraps, sandwiches so I figured the wings were my best low-carb choice. We played blackjack for like 5 hours! We were down, then up, and ended right around even. It was a lot of fun!!!

I took a pic yesterday before I got dressed to go out. I'm trying to post it. My weight in this pic is the 191. I would love to be just 10 lbs. lighter!!!

Good morning Oh Monday, how did you get here so fast? We had a nice weekend at the lake. The weather wasn't great but we had fun. I took the girls to the movies yesterday to see Brave. It was really cute! The main character looks exactly like my daughter Erin The long curly red hair and Irish white skin!!!

Today I'm doing a much needed DD. I ate too much snacky type foods yesterday. I also didn't drink much water. TOM is totally whacked out - still not here 100% I may call the gyne to see what she says. There's probably not much they can do for me though.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Busy day! I'm trying to get everything done before vacation for work and it's driving me bananas! Yesterday was good until I got the night time munchies and fell into a bowl of Cocoa Crispies Oh well, whatever!!! TOM still isn't here and I'm thinking maybe I'm just skipping a month. I had a little spotting but maybe I have a yeast infection due to the 10 days of Augmentin I got one of those OTC 1 day treatments so hopefully it works. I will weigh on Friday morning and see where I am. Hopefully back in the 180's

I was thinking about doing a greek yogurt day because #1 I'm craving it and #2 I need me some good probiotics!!! Also, I keep WANTING to exercise I just need to get my butt up moving and stop procrastinating I may start with just trying to walk for 15 minutes each day and go from there.

How is everyone else doing? I will try to visit journals after I get all my work done

Doing fine, I think the 15 minutes of walking would be good. I am in exercise mode right now so any I think would be good for anyone. KUTGW!

I keep wanting to exercise but don't ever do it It's so hot here I can't bear the thought of going outside and walking. I haven't even done my callanetics dvd in a while I need some motivation!!!

Still plugging along here - got lots to do before leaving for vacation tomorrow. I haven't packed a single thing yet My eating has been pretty good. I've been doing a kind of Intermittent Fasting and only eating when hungry. I will weigh tomorrow morning and see how I'm doing.

I will try to check back later - everyone have a great day!

Good morning The Monday back from vacation is the absolute WORST I ate too much, had some beers and slushy drinks (dirty banana's), did not exercise, and pretty much had a BLAST!!! I got totally sunburned on Saturday and am now starting to peel We had pretty nice weather and boated nearly every day. I really want to retire and live in the mountains now

I know my weight is up so I started hhcg yesterday and loaded. Today is VLCD #1. I haven't done this in a while so I need to get back in the groove. I weighed this morning and will weigh again on Friday morning, unless I feel the need to let the scale dictate my day I plan on following the Omaha plan with more veggie choices, fruit choices, and 800 calories. I don't eat the grissini but may have the popcorn as a treat every once in a while. If this all proves too much for me then I will just move back to JUDDD. It's nice knowing I have that option Hope everyone is having a good Monday!

Hi Gracie, sorry about your sunburn.
I loaded this past Friday and saturday and today is VLCD 2. I wish you the best.
Will be starting work back wednesday and I can't get this website there so will chat in the evening.
Mom passed away in May and I am finally getting myself together. I've gained about 30 pounds since I've been here from the stress of caring for her. Wish you the best Gracie.
