Down another .5 this morning! Finally hit the 280's....haven't seen that number since Feb or March and then only for a minute. Now I have to work hard to never see the 290's again!

Two more days of Phase 1. I know my weight loss is gonna slow at that point and not sure if I should be weighing myself daily anymore. I can really be led astray by what the scale says. I think if I'm firm about adding things back in slowly, I may decide to just weigh once/week. Of course I'm as addicted to the scale as I am flour and sugar, so that will be a hard habit to break!

End Phase 1 Weigh-in.....down 13lb in two weeks!

Very excited about the loss but now the real work begins. Gradually add back in the fruits and whole grains. Only lost 2.5lb in the 2nd week so know things are gonna slow .... way ... down!

Ate at the casino buffet today and did very well I think....not on plan certainly but very well for me at a buffet! Only one plate of food with lots of veggies and just one spoonful of a chocolate mousse that I decided wasn't worth the calories/carbs to finish.

Got to go study Phase 2 and make a food plan for this week. Hubby is going to Vegas to visit a friend who's very ill so will be easy for me to just plan food for myself. (But then again, I'm a sneak eater, so this is a time where I would normally do some bingeing). Be strong, Sherrie...you don't want to blow these last two weeks!

Gorgeous weather here today...mid 70's and lots of sunshine. We even had the top down on the way home. It could stay this way til Christmas Eve and would be okay with me.

Yes, don't let the food addictions be stronger than your will. If being alone encourages you to sneak food, then get out of the house!! Go meet girlfriends. Go swimming. Go to the park. Visit relatives. Do something.

I love buffets. Lots of low carb choices there, and you get a variety. BUT...I do hate teh variety of desserts mocking me lol.

I fell off the wagon big time!

Haven't posted here in a few days and that's always a bad sign for me! The timing couldn't have been worse....DH leaves town and I reintroduce carbs!! I'm ashamed to admit I really went off the deep end for the past 3 days and regained EIGHT of the 13 lb I lost. : help:

I just got a taste of that sugar and I was off and running...same old pattern of "I better eat everything I know I shouldn't have cause I'm never gonna be able to have it again when I go back on plan"! I swear this sabotaging myself has got to stop. What am I afraid of if I'm actually successful on a plan?

Not gonna go back and do Phase 1 over again, but am going to allow one fruit/day and no sugar....I just can't handle it. Hopefully this 8lb will come off again quickly. One good thing....my BP has remained low. Can't look back...just jump back on the wagon and make this work. I know it's a lifestyle I can adapt to but really think I'm one of those people who is severely addicted to sugar.

And here I am two months later and over 300lb again!

When I fall off the wagon, I do it big time! Have been trying to get back on DASH but just haven't made it.

Have been reading some of the success stories with Chris Powell's Choose to Lose plan and am going to give it a try again. I tried it for a couple of weeks back in June and did quite well with it but didn't stick with it (either). I have to get some of this weight off and really do believe in the carb cycling.

I almost am embarrassed to even say I'm trying yet once again another WOE. I have tried so many and have success for a week or two and then sabotage myself and give up. I think I really need the "total transformation" of mind and body that CP believes in. Will weigh in once again tomorrow morning and start anew.

I am so sorry that you're struggling, Sherrie!

I know that for me, carbs are the kiss of death. I can't even handle fruit. Oddly, although I love all the things that I don't eat [I have a world-class sweet tooth and love carbs], my body seems to prefer very low carb! That is, I physically feel my best when I'm eating very low carb.

If I were to eat the way I'd 'prefer' to eat, I'd still be over 300 lbs and feeling unwell, but by eating this way, I can manage my weight and feel great. For me, it's worth it.

This requires that I just 'fence off' foods I don't eat and focus entirely on what I can eat. It's a daily challenge, and I try to take it only a day at a time because I know this will be a lifelong challenge for me.

Leo....so good to touch base with you again! Glad to hear you're still in control. I am just so out of control it's ridiculous. My weight and age have caught up with me and my knee has really gotten worse...every step is painful. Have found a doctor who I trust and who will do my knee replacement if I can get down to 225. There are doctors out there who will do it at my present weight, but being a nurse I know there are more risks involved and a new knee isn't gonna last long at this weight anyway.

Am gonna give Chris Powell's program a try as I believe I need the mind/body total transformation...need to start believing in myself and that I can be a success instead of seeing myself as a failure with food. Most importantly I need to realize I won't be perfect and not see a "slip" as an "I blew it" and throw in the towel.

Choosing to Lose!

Got on the scale this morning and saw 304.5 That's the most I've ever weighed in my life. 55+ years of dieting and I've hit a new all time high.

That's behind me (literally a lot of it is ..ha ha) and it's a new day. I am choosing to lose with Chris Powell's carb cycling. I've decided on starting out with the Easy Cycle that gives you a "reward meal" on HC days rather than a "reward day" that the other cycles incorporate. A reward "day" to me, I'm afraid, could turn into an all out binge and would rather keep it more under control. I realize I may not lose as quickly this way but just really need to be doing something positive for myself right now that I can handle.

Eating every three hours is keeping me satisfied and drinking 100 oz of water helps. Have read through the book once, but now need to go back and really do the work. Feeling positive and that is good!

Yes, Sherrie--be positive! And don't blame yourself. I was older than you are before I finally got my weight under control after a lifetime of morbid obesity.

I read somewhere that being positive helps enormously in weight loss, so please stay positive.

It's interesting that your goal is knee replacement--since I'm trying to avoid my own need for double knee replacement.

I've consulted a surgeon at one of our big NYC hospitals and was resigned to going through the process (my knees have been a mess since my 40s). However, he advised me that if I'm willing to deal with my limitations and am controlling the pain, I should delay surgery as long as possible. Since my weight loss and my standard low-carb eating, I've been able to manage with no meds at all, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can avoid this surgery.

A major concern is the 'blood' issue. Two of my siblings died young of blood clots, so the rest of us were tested for a genetic problem. My results turned out the opposite--I tend to 'bleed' too easily. It's not something that would normally be a problem (I have to avoid aspirin or any aspirin-based med)--BUT, as I'm sure you know, there are clotting issues with any surgery that involves the bones, and blood thinners are normally given to anyone having knee replacement.

I explained all this to the surgeon, and he assured me that they'd do special testing in advance to determine what I'd need, but I can't help but worry about that aspect of the surgery. So, for now, it's on 'hold.'

I'm hoping getting some of this weight off will help my level of pain. I'm on anti-coagulants for my A-Fib, so can't take any anti-inflammatories now. I know in the past when I've given up white flour and sugar, the pain has subsided substantially...hoping this happens again as my mobility is severely limited at this time.

I also have blood clotting issues in my family and that is why I was hesitant to have surgery years ago when was first diagnosed as "bone on bone". I'm basically a chicken when it comes to surgery anyway....hope it doesn't come to that.

Well, completed my first successful LC day....some hunger issues but got in all my water and went to bed early! Hard coming off consuming so many carbs on a regular basis...will take a couple of days I'm sure.

Good job with the low carb. It does take a few days to adjust, so don't let yourself get too hungry during this time. Dr. Atkins always advised people to eat to satisfy hunger during the early low-carb stages--to avoid being tempted to abandon low-carb eating.

My advice would be to pick something low carb that you like and is easy to snack on--and keep it available. For me, hard-boiled eggs work, but sometimes I'd use some cold chicken. Just 'nosh' if you're feeling uncomfortably hungry.

Eliminating grains and sugar have done wonders to control my pain. If I indulge and have a dessert on a special occasion, I can immediately feel the difference, so I've practically eliminated such indulgences.

I've also eliminated dairy (except for butter), and I don't know whether that helps with pain, but I feel better overall without it. Cheese can give me heartburn, which is why I initially eliminated it. I had some cheese at Thanksgiving, and I didn't feel as 'well' as I normally do, so much as I love all cheese, I try to stay away from it.

For every pound you lose, 4 pounds of pressure are taken off of your knees and legs. That is what my doctor told me. And, I believe him! Since I have started losing weight, my knees don't hurt at all anymore!! Good luck

Thanks....I've heard that too! I've been following your journal...you are doing such a great job!! I love how you enjoy trying new recipes all the time. Unfortunately my joy of cooking has vanished over the years...I can eat the same old thing all the time.

Psyched today....did well with my HC day and my reward meal...didn't go overboard. Had to do some talking to myself throughout the day...those urges to just snack non-stop were there, but tried to assess if I was just bored or where they were coming from before acting on them. Managed to keep them under control and proud of myself at the end of the day that I had succeeded. Boy, this is really gonna be a "one day at a time" journey. Have to take baby steps and be proud of my positive steps...hopefully they'll start adding up and I can begin to see myself as a success instead of a failure.

Was a little worried yesterday being a LC day and having plans for going out to dinner...however, worked out fine. Went to a steak house and declined their delicious rolls and butter but did have a small filet and steamed veggies along with a salad and dressing on the side. Felt very proud of myself and it paid off on the scale this morning with another 1.5lb loss!

Welcome HC day....drinking my favorite green smoothie as we speak. Life is good and feeling positive!

Don't plan on seeing those 300's again!!!

Yes, I'm in love with this plan so far. Not so afraid of getting out of control with my reward meal today....gaining a little confidence and slowly but surely feeling more positive about myself.

I'm really liking the idea of a reward meal for my HC days. Will have to see how long it works for me, but for now it really makes this plan very workable....no feeling of deprivation at all. I have been completely staying away from any sugar and finally feeling those cravings subside.

Down another 1.5lb today!! I know this isn't gonna last forever, but certainly motivating at this point.

Crazy roller coaster of a weekend! Got weighed Saturday morning and actually up 2.5lb....think a combination of too much salt and not getting in all my water. This morning back down 2lb...still not good on the water though. Decorated cut outs with my grandkids today and sad to say sampled a few. Don't think Chris meant Christmas cookies when talking about a reward meal! Looking forward to a clean LC day tomorrow and chugging my water.

I have a hard time drinking my water in the winter. Seems like in the summer I can get it all in but in the winter it just makes me feel cold and sloshy. You have inspired me to try harder.

Hey Shay...we started the same day on this journey! Good luck to you.

Yes, the water makes all the difference to me....I retain fluid so easily if my salt (or carb) intake is up there at all and all that water really makes a difference in flushing it from my system.

Good day today.....1160 calories LC and all my water. Hoping to get those 2lb off for my one week weigh in tomorrow morning. Today was one week, but Chris suggests weighing after a LC day.

Can I jump in here? (I'm new here so I've been jumping around).

I will be testing my own iron will for the first time in 2 months myself next week (or maybe my sister won't have made cookies. I know I won't be making them). But I know I can do it and I'm not even sure I want a nibble. It's a good test anyway since I haven't even been around any.

And on the water: We've never been bottled water people but there's no way I'd make it if I didn't constantly have a bottle on me. And so far, I've been making it for the most part. All these bottles are killing me, tho, because my husband is doing the same thing. We SWIM in them. Ugg. Must go back to the dispenser on the counter at some point and just keep filling up.
