All I Had To Eat Today...
Just figured out some goals, and wanted to put them somewhere else but thought my sig would just get a wee bit too cluttered if I put them there.

I hunted around to see if a few years ago I may have started a journal in here but I couldn't seem to find one.

If anyone happens in here and happens upon an old journal, feel free to point it out to me.

Ok, back to business.

Induction, 10-15 net carbs a day

Here are some weight goals:

St Pattys Day March 17th: 199 (or anything under 200)
Easter March 31st (OMG, this is really early - what happened to April?): 195
Tax Day April 15th (seeing as Easter is way too early): 190
Cinco de Mayo (May 5th): 185
Memorial Day May 27th: 177
Summer Solstice (the real first day of summer) June 21st: 165

***At this point I really need to shift to OWL if I have not already
25-40 net carbs a day

July 4th: 161

Mid August

***Somewhere here I should be hitting into the 152 and when this happens it's time to upgrade to pre-maintence
50-70 net carbs a day

Labor Day September 2nd: 145
October 1st 142 :jumpjoy:


That's the "plan."

Yesterdays Menu:
3 Cups coffee, 3 splenda, 3 with splash half n half
4 Mozzarella sticks
1 vodka with soda and energy drink water flavoring
1 cucumber vodka with club soda
Broiled Haddock Broiled Haddock Fillets Recipe - Food.com - 35054
Caesar Salad (romaine, newmans dressing, parm cheese, anchovy)
10 very skinny spears of asparagus (sauteed in olive oil with a sliver of onion for flavor)

Today I had:
3 Cups coffee, 3 splenda, 3 with splash half n half
4 Mozzarella sticks
2 cucumber vodka with club soda
Roasted chicken with skin (amount unknown, just picking)
Mixed green salad with italian dressing (about 2 cups salad)

There is another piece of fish left which I may pick at later.

Every day I have gummy vitamins when I wake up. I will have to play it by ear and if I hit a stall those may have to be switched out for regular vitamins.

Technically alcohol is not allowed, and if I see the scale stall it is the first thing to go. It's not something I have necessarily every day, but I do like an evening cocktail and it helps me unwind.

Well, that's all I got for now. Wait a sec -

Beyond weight goals, I really need to fit back into size 16 in the next 10 days (I'm in 18 now). 10 lbs should do it, so 10 it is in the next 10 days.

Sit on the Cheese
A girl I used to work with a long time ago told me a really funny story.

Her father was stationed on some military base somewhere in Europe.

They would go over the border to a different country and buy these big wheels of cheese.

The cheese was not legal in the place they were going - so they'd smuggle it over.

When they'd get close to the border, her dad would tell her to "sit on the cheese."

I'm feeling a bit of that here.

My other half can not do a low carb diet. He can eat the meats and cheese, but he wants bread in the mix and he is not good at limiting what things to eat.

I've learned in the past year that if I put things in the back of the fridge he won't see them. I have to hide the bacon and cheese way in the back.

If things are in certain kinds of containers he seems less likely to go into those too.

Today I may make plans to prep some easy to grab and eat items, and somehow put them in toward the back of the fridge where they won't be disturbed. ;)

2 gummy vitamins
1 cup coffee with splenda and half and half
4 eggs scrambled with 2 pieces swiss melted on top, 2 pieces bacon
3 eggs used to make a Tamago, with a tablespoon soy sauce on side
(yep, lot of eggs today)
1/2 lb shrimp, and eating it with this cocktail sauce (not all of it):

1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest, grated
salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 lb cooked shrimp, chilled


Combine sour cream, horseradish, chives, lime juice and lime zest; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with cooked shrimp.


I probably need to eat some kind of veggie before the night is out.
2 vodka with redbull zero

I'm really not hungry after the shrimp.

Scale this morning: 216

Gummy vitamins

1 coffee with splenda and half n half
2 redbull zero, handful cashews

Asparagus and mushrooms sauteed in butter under 2 fried eggs with some hollandaise sauce

1 Diet cola (got a sodastream flavor today!)

Sugar free vitaman chew - got this a gnc, made with splenda. Tasted like a starburst candy.

2 string cheese sticks

Not really a whole lot of food today, but I'm feeling full.

Going to try getting in some more veggies tomorrow and perhaps a burger.

Forgot to weigh in today!

But, I will say that the last time I was using the scale it was clicking when I went to step on it. I think my other half decided he would weigh himself - and I believe he is over 300lbs and it may have been too much for the scale:o I do hope it is working properly.

I will weigh in tomorrow.

Until then, all I had to eat today...

2 gummy vitamins
2 coffee with splenda and half n half
6 breakfast sausages
1 box brussel sprouts boiled with butter and parm cheese
1lb scallops (rough estimate) sauteed in butter
1/2 of one of those giant european style cucumbers with some salt
2oz cheddar cheese block
1 mozzarella string cheese
2 can redbull zero

MissMerize 02-21-2013 05:13 PM


2 coffee with truvia and half n half
2 String cheese
Large green salad (about 3 cups)- iceberg, cucumbers, radish, onion, tomato, slivers of carrot (in the mix) with 2 tbs guacamole ranch dressing
1 large cucumber (quartered and salted)
3 slices turkey breast
4 oz cheddar cheese
3/4 lb burger with side of mayo
2 sodas with energy enhancer flavoring
Oh, and about 2 cups boiled califlower with a big hunk of butter and a spoonful of parm cheese.

Got some keto sticks today and I'm in the deep purple but feeling I'm probably way over on the cheese intake.

I'm not big on red meat, so I'm struggling on how to get the fat w/o the cheese. Love bacon but can only do so much of that.

I will give myself points for not eating any sweets this past week or any bread.

May invest in a low carb app tomorrow so I can better track values.

Finally. Been in such a long stall.

Got rid of the gummy vitamins. Moved onto full cream.

I made a really yummy egg dish with cheddar bacon and broccoli. Makes it easy to slice off pieces for breakfast.

Need to come up with more "prepared" dishes so I don't feel like I'm working so hard to figure out what to eat.

Also, my appetite has finally subsided.

Copying Sconset Shark Loop | MapMyWalk

My new 3 mile loop, trying today.:D

Why thank you!

It's going slower this time than it has in the past.

I did the shark walk and it was perfect!

I hit the beach at the mid way mark. I actually took some photos I should add in here.

TOM showed up really early, and things slowed down again so not sure what is going to happen with this St. Patties goal. I think it's going to boil down to getting the walks in - which the weather is really doo doo outside.

Last night we had 2lb lobster again. Someone else keeps picking them up (he is spoiled) but I'm not going to fight it.
Also had Oysters Rockefeller (ordered from restaurant and brought home.) Those had a lot of spinach on them, bacon and parm cheese.
Also had pork rinds, keilbasa pan fried with melted cheddar cheese, and breakfast was 2 eggs scrambled with a piece of muenster cheese and a side of avocado.

2 cups of coffee with light cream of course and splenda.

I should probably rename this thread "all I had to eat yesterday" :rofl:
