Great job on all the losses!

I haven't weighed in due to an all high carb week on my plan it makes me nervous....now the theory is it keeps you from plateauing by keeping your body always guessing! We will see. I am amping up my exercise all week so hoping to see some sort of loss by Saturday!

30 day shred is no joke put with the c25k and some bowling I am dying today LOL

JenJen, explain! I feel like my body is settling into this rut, so changing things up might be a good idea?

Hi, I'm new to this thread. I have been doing Ideal Protein for several weeks now. I'm down 12.8 lbs. I have a long way to go. At this time, my goal is 43lbs by the end of Sept. I started walking on the treadmill today. Trying to make myself exercise 3x a week to start. Glad to meet all of you.

I've had a very rough couple of days, y'all!

I had to have a sleep study done and my son started martial arts the same night-- so I raced from taekwando to the sleep lab and grabbed a burger on the way. I've been SO good about eating what I need and stopping that I REALLY didn't think it'd be a big deal. *snort* 720 calories were inhaled in short order. I was DISGUSTED with myself. Not that I had a splurge, not that I went over on my calories that day... Just that I was so mistaken and that I ate the other half of that burger-- KNOWING I always already full and then was uncomfortable and oddly still hungry after it. Then, yesterday, Omigosh the cravings for JUNK were almost out of control. I'm sick. I have no control. I admit it. But, ugh. Man, I was disappointed in myself.

Anyways.. I fought through and feel more like myself today. I'm sitting here at Firehouse Subs after a study group and I ate half a medium sub with only the bottom bun. I didn't get my son a kids meal and I have him the chips, lemonade, and other half of my sub. Just to keep me honest. (That being said-- he loved it) So, less than 300 calories-- even eating "fast food." It's a victory.

Anyhow. Just had to tell ya because I need the accountability. And the support.

Love y'all!!

Bama: I can relate to that burger issue. It is frustrating to do so well for so long, but then to see how quickly it can turn. But, looks like you are rebounding nicely!!

Jayne: Welcome!!

Papercut: Congrats on the weight loss!

Jenni: Good job on the C25K!

For me, nothing new to report. I got on the scale today just to check, and it is the same. I guess that's ok. For now.

Diane....your doing great hang in there!

Bama....we all fall ....I say this a lot...LOL ....It is the getting up that counts. The more we get up and continue the less we are apt to fall...so keep on going you can do it!

Jayne...the starting is hard but with effort you will be doing great!

So me still on all HC week ...I have really tried to limit it to fruits and veggies...I do have an occasional sandwhich at lunch with tuna. I just feel so much better with the low carbs in there...looking forward to next week!

School starting back is KILLING ME!!! I already knew I was an emotional eater with stress being my main trigger... So nursing school is SO stressful! Our first week back we have multiple exams-- if you fail, you're removed from the program. I've gotten As and am not really in danger ever of being dismissed, but I'm naturally high strung... So I can stress myself out over anything... Made it through week one with no "events" (binges) even though I SO wanted to. But today... It's gonna be one of those days. I'm irritable and snappy. And I'm half trying to convince myself that other people have cheat days on their diet so maybe I could have one. Because the junk would make me feel better. ...wow. I totally do sound like an addict. Haha. "I'll just do it this once... Just to get me through today..." God, that's disturbing. And yet I'm STILL trying to rationalize a binge.

Hang in there Bama....did you look up carb cycling by Chris Powell? This has REALLY helped me wanting to binge!

So High carb week resulting in no gain no loss....236.8....so lets hope the theory holds true we will see next week.....I would to had to have a loss....I was still at a deficit and excersized! So I really think my body is holding on to water!
