It's great to have an active discussion going again!
Janice, Congratulations on your loss!
Cheryl, I'll remind you of your excitement later, count
on it. But some people have such easy joyful pregnancies that
they only need encouragement during delivery.
Allison, Good luck with your plan. It sounds like you have
lots of healthy ideas to draw on.
Sherry, Congratulations! 30 lbs is really impressive.
You must feel so proud!
This morning my scale said 147.6 and my tape measure said that my
hips are now less than 40 inches. YAY! Halfway to goal.
To explain more about what was going on before ---
My previous plan was to eat a low-carb low-fat high-fiber meal
every 3 hours. Skim milk and vegetables. Chicken breast and vegetables.
You get the idea. I call it the "low-everything" diet, because it's
pretty restrictive, but I was reliably losing 2 lbs per week!!
When I had so much as 100 calories of a carbohydrate, I
got really hungry for a few days, no matter how much low-carb
I ate. Eating another 100 calories of carbs would calm the hunger
, but then after 45 or 60 minutes, I'm back at square one again.
The only solution I found (so far) is to eat a high-FAT diet for
a couple of days during the "withdrawal." Then when I'm free
of the carb influence, I can cut out the fat and resume my
Anyway, I'm really really happy to be at a thinner and healthier size.
I'm only halfway to my goal, so I need to keep losing somehow,
but I can't continue the "low-everthing" diet because it leaves my
brain too fuzzy and my memory seems to be really bad. For a few months
I've been blaming it on sleep deprivation or laziness or age, but
I think if I want to catch up at work, I'll need to change my diet.
One of the reasons I put on weight was because eating sugar while
on the job made my work a lot easier, so that's an ongoing issue
I'm going to try adding more non-carb calories, and if that doesn't
improve my brain, I'll have to overhaul my plan totally and eat
carbs again. For now, I'll add some cheese and meat. I should
be able to continue losing at a slower rate -- with exercise maybe
1 lb per week. I really hope I can get more done at work now.

Woops, I'm going to repost that last one to the main thread,
not the workout thread.

Lisa-Thanks for joining me! I was talking to myself for awhile.

Monday did the long walk with the double-stroller BOTH WAYS.
Broke a sweat and panted both directions.
Tuesday - nothing significant.

Really crammed schedule Wed and Thurs with no exercise

up for it....If I don't waste the time being lazy. :)

Finally this week I was able to get to belly dance class! I had really missed it, dealing with Rob's Mom. I had a two hour class Wed. and I am getting ready to go to a one hour class today!

Nothing Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, and nothing Saturday!! Wow, so bad!
Sunday I did crunches, weight lifting for upper body, and some cardio
on the exercise bike.
06-25-2007, 07:50 AM
Took a walk yesterday and ended up walking much longer than expected. Walked for over an hour.
06-25-2007, 05:33 PM
Lisa-Good for you getting going on Sunday!
06-26-2007, 12:40 AM
Tuesday - a long walk with the single stroller, both ways.
The cardio wasn't as intense as with a double stroller, and the bumpy
sidewalk kept me from walking as fast as I can, but it was 45 minutes
of elevated heart rate so I'll claim it as a full workout.
I'm trying to get in the habit of taking the stairs instead of the
elevator to my office (5th floor), but I usually "forget."

Rob and I took a short hike yesterday on the Applichain trail, which runs near our house. Was nice to be outside.
06-30-2007, 09:34 AM
Debbi-That's really cool. I did the virtual Appalachian Trail a couple of years ago. It was fun. It was on coolrunning.com. I didn't get very far!
bike 20/361 miles for the month!
06-30-2007, 09:51 AM
Never heard of the virtual Appalachian Trail, will have to check it out. Rob and I have done the entire part of the trail that runs through Connecticut. We have done some of the NY part as well. We do it as day hikes, have never slept on the trail. In fact, we don't even own a tent!
