Wow I am really getting hungry reading these latest posts, it's like pizza porn with all this talk...but thank you to HuggerBunny and lotsakids for your ways round it! I have been pizza free for so long I can't even remember the last one I had....nope, racking my brains and I'm drawing a blank!

And the roasted radish, tasting like potatoes? This I have to try, I have never even tried radishes, it's true what Llilith says about us eating stuff we wouldn't have eaten before.

Well done Llilith for your new low! And a 'you can do it!' for you making your goal for your birthday! And how amazing to be lower than your 25-year-old self!? Incredible!!!!!! Lol to you driving more now! Best way to burn calories surely?!

And in answer to your question I pretty much do them in one go, pausing after 25 normally to do something as I'm often cooking when I do them and have to stir something every now and again. If I didn't I think I would forget to finish them off, I have a head like a sieve!

Lots of love to everyone for tomorrow and hope you all have a great weekend! !!!

you can throw the radishes in a stew they will sop up the flavor or you can roast them with some oil in the oven. I've popped them in the microwave too. Once cooked they lose the radishy taste and the taste and texture to me is much more like potato than cauliflower. Besides I have to save my cauliflower for my pizza.

193.4 today, knew I was going to get a bounce up

Thanks lotsakids! I can't wait to try the cauliflower pizza crust. I'm going to the store this weekend to get radishes and cauliflower. YUM.

HuggerBunny - awww, you reminded me of what I was little. My mom used to make those tortilla pizzas for me. I totally agree with you about pizza every day!

Toowicky - good for you picking your own goal weight based on what is healthy for you. I think the "normal" weight charts are pretty rediculous. You know what is best for you, not some chart.

LOL scarletmeshell - see what happens when you are gone for a bit? Cauliflower pizza and butt selfless. We know how to LIVE here in this thread! Yay for 194.6

Jennybutler - lmao at pizza porn! I'm hungry reading it too. You are rocking the squats! I love the idea of doing them while you are doing other stuff. The little breaks probably help too.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! :-) Maybe I'll tell Mr. Llilith that I'd like a cauliflower bouquet this year.

187.4 today, I'm having a woosh!! I'm really excited about that, but I am kinda sad about how it seems to be affecting other people. I know we've talked about this before, about how it's almost like when an alcoholic goes into recovery when we have a drastic weight loss. I'm really feeling that lately.

I have a friend who is very large and she always says bad things about her weight. Just a lot of fat talk and negative comments as jokes about herself. I think she is super bothered by the fact that I've lost so much weight. In January she asked me a bit about how I was doing it and even bought an exercise bike. I thought maybe we could starting working on it together and that I'd inspired her - but I didn't bug her about it or even consider that as any sort of condition of our friendship. I became her friend as she was, and I think she is beautiful the way she is. Well, I haven't heard from her in a week. She used to call me three out of five workdays on her long commute home and we'd chat for an hour or so. Last time I mentioned getting together with our hubbys for dinner out (I still do that often, and I don't make it weird for anyone else, I just have what I want and keep my portions small) - she said they had plans. It was the first time she'd ever done that without offering an alternative date. And, she hasn't 'liked' any of my FB stuff for a long time. I think I've been bragging about my progress too much on FB. I'm going to stop doing that.

And my 18 yo daughter has been so moody around me lately - she keeps saying how it's weird that I'm smaller and how it's weird that I don't weigh so much more than her now. Meanwhile she's been complaining about being fat and how her pants don't fit well anymore - then buying donuts and ice cream. I know that I am responsible for this, since she learned a lot of her negative self talk and bad eating habits from me. I have always told her positive things about herself like how beautiful and smart she is. I also told her that I've done this for health reasons rather than vanity. She IS beautiful and not very overweight - it is sad to see her so hard on herself. I feel like she is angry at me for losing, which feels really weird.

It's hard to keep the vanity out completely. I'm proud of what I have accomplished and it's sad to have to try to hide it because others are having a tough time with it.

I realize that I'm whining, but I figured I could safely do it here, if I can anywhere.

Llilith, that was a very interesting and somewhat disheartening read I can identify with some of what you said... I have a few friends that my very presence now makes them uncomfortable, all because I am a new size. I am somewhat confident my neighbor is actively avoiding me These are all friends who are obese, however I was more obese than they were when I started dieting, and now I'm significantly smaller than they are. I can tell they have conflicted feelings all around about the change in my appearance. Some of my techniques to smooth these friendships over are to 1) not mention dieting or weight loss at all 2) if it does come up, say that dieting blows and is a big pita so I can't wait til I'm done in a few more months 3) reinforce health motivations (i.e. I no longer have borderline high blood pressure) 4) mention the numbers of what I weighed and now weigh, because my current weight is still quite high for ladies and when they hear that number, they don't freak out as much. You are sure to run into this situation more and more as time goes on, sadly.

I have posted on fb about my weight loss at 11 lbs lost when I announced I was dieting, at 30 lbs lost when I exclaimed I could not believe I had stuck with it, at 50 lbs lost, and then here recently when I was no longer obese. So, 4 times in just over 10 months. That's more frequent than I would ever normally toot my own horn to the world at large. I have a self-deprecating manner irl, and it is very rare that I draw attention to my achievements if that makes sense. I don't even post on fb about my kids' achievements, lol, that's just not my style. 3FC is my sole outlet to post ad nauseam about weight related stuff and I am so grateful for it!

What's weird is, I can't ever remember complaining to other people about the way I looked even when I was morbidly obese, or, you know, sort of making negative jokes about myself being big. I didn't engage in negative talk about myself, other than lamenting a few times to my husband about my size. I was bummed about being so big, but I didn't feel super bad about my looks. Maybe it's because I live in a place where a large percentage of people are obese, so I blended right in, or maybe I have resilient self esteem, I'm not really sure. I do believe in beauty at any size, even my own size whatever that may be. I have totally told my 11 year old daughter that I hope she never has to battle an obesity issue like I'm having to battle. I tell her being thin is never a goal either. It's important to have a nourished and healthy body, and there is a wide range of what is healthy. Basically, that moderation is key. Having been morbidly obese, I have really reinforced with my own young children how beauty comes in all sizes; I hope that message has sunk in. We are learning together as a family to have healthier eating habits. It's exciting to watch the kids make good choices about food on their own.

Looks like I'll be chasing some of you ladies on the way out of this thread! Congrats to all my gals who are already seeing the 180s. After being stuck in the 194 area for what has felt like months, I saw the lord of all whooshes this morning: overnight, I dropped 5.4 pounds and saw an even 190.0! I'll give it a day or two to see if it sticks before I move the ticker, but I'm excited to get even a preview.

Going back to the pizza discussion, I do the primal diet and my fiancee have found a perfect solution for us: We use a portabella mushroom cap as the "crust" for a personal sized pizza. So yum, and way fewer calories. YMMV though, since we love 'shrooms so much we snack on them raw and plain. I also have learned not to go so hard and heavy 100% of the time. This week I've been banking calories for my special annual Valentine's treat: a heart shaped pizza from a local restaurant. We do it every year, and I don't plan to miss out on it.

I just wanted to chime in to say that I feel very proud of myself: yesterday my best friend and I went out on a super quick road trip and I did not eat one piece of candy she bought for the trip (I took a chocolate protein bar with me), and then when we went out to eat I custom ordered a salad that wouldn't break my diet terribly because even the salads offered at the restaurant were full of "no-nos." So I'm very happy with myself and with how I stuck with my diet.

But then this morning I woke up with a stomach bug so I feel awful. LOL. I guess not everything could be good, right?

Well, this is not fun. After seeing 190 on Friday, I was up to 192 yesterday and 193 today. Whatever, even if I bounce around like this I know that I'll bounce down eventually.

I had to increase my calories somewhat; I used to stay around 1200, with weight training it definitely wasn't enough to eat and about once a week I'd go nuts and eat like 3000 cause I couldn't stop. So I figured if I increase by 200 a day, I will still lose and I might not get so hungry that I end up binging.

Thank you!

How often do you weight yourself in? If you do it weekly, as you should, maybe you gained a bit of muscle, or it's water retention, or you're approaching your time of the month? Good luck!

HelloNurse - Wow, awesome woosh! Good for you
I can relate to your later post, I am 189.4 today - My goal of 185 by my bday was probably too ambitious. But wow, I'm so glad to be looking at 180s instead of 260s. I think you are right about needing a few extra calories to keep from binging. After all, if this is going to stick, we have to eat an amount that will be ok for us long term. Too little is probably setting ourselves up for failure.

TooWicky - It's great that you are so conscious of how your self talk affects the kids. I wish I'd figured it out sooner - better late than never though right?!

Paulitens - YAY, congrats on your resolve during your road trip. Great job!! Hope you feel better soon.

lotsakids - Loose pants = good!! I had the same type of weekend. Went from 187.4 to 292 on Monday. Drank a ton of water yesterday and I'm back to 189.4 today. Not changing the ticker dammit cause I saw 187 and I will see it again LOL.

kabaker - you'll be there soon
