Way to go on the loss, Sherry! Feels good, doesn't it?

I'm not doing really well on my loss. I have exactly 10 pounds to go to goal (don't look at the ticker--it's wrong right now!). I spent yesterday planning out my meals for the week and I don't foresee anything that will disrupt it (well, except for the freezer full of cheesecakes I bought from a fund raiser).

Take care everyone!

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
"low-everything" diet.

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
for me.

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.

Determined,
Lisa

Lisa-That's great! You are doing fantastic! What about lower fat or is that what you were doing? I tend to eat fat free all the time, except now I have been eating almonds (too many!)

Allison-You have done great. Your last 10 lbs will come off soon enough.

gdeann
06-11-2007, 09:33 AM
Lisa, maybe look into the ******* plan? If you message me, I'll send you a link or two. The June 12th Womans World had an article about it. It is a lower calorie/fat alternative to Atkins. If you go to her site, it is just amazing reading the weight losses.

I'm home sick today. I started with a dry cough yesterday in church and by last night my chest was constricted and congested. I'm coughing up gross stuff (just what you wanted to read) I was afraid I could pass something on to one of my clients. HOPEFULLY, I can go in tomorrow and get caught up.

Gayle, thank you thank you thank you for calling Dee for us! I'm sorry you're sick--hope you get to feeling better very quickly!

Hope you get feeling better fast.
Shelley - how is the nose feeling?
I am staying on program (Low Carb)
Hello to all the other Floozies out there.
Cherly- I think its wonderful that you are trying to get pregnant. Wish my daughter would get around to it soon.

DeterminedLisa
06-11-2007, 10:43 PM
Gayle, Get well soon! I sent you a message on the forum's
PM system with my email address.

I'm feeling really great, much better than before! I was
re-reading the South Beach Diet book and I had forgotten some
of the advice about breaking a "carbohydrate addiction".
(reactive hypoglycemia)
I definitely have a carbohydrate addiction. If I eat carbs,
I desperately need more of them after 45 or 60 minutes, and
then I need them desperately again after that, and in the end I
have tons of calories and I still feel deprived and hungry
all the time. It's horrible.
On my "low-everything diet", I still felt like I was going
through some version of that process, which I didn't understand,
because it was low-carb. Well, the problem was that I was
guzzling large amounts of skim milk! Even though skim milk
is a relatively good carb, having a pint at breakfast is
enough to trigger swings in my blood sugar, and then the
whole imbalance gets started fresh each day.
I'm removing ALL carbs from my diet for a week or hopefully for
two, including milk and carrots and tomatoes. The advice from
South Beach (which I'm going to try) is to cut all carbs
ruthlessly for just 2 weeks to give your body a chance
to re-set itself. Afterwards they recommend having good carbs
(like milk and whole grain and fruit) in moderation, except
not so much for breakfast.
Well, all I can tell you is that I feel a LOT better today
than I have any day for the last week. WOW! I can't
believe the milk was triggering blood sugar swings, but
after feeling what it's like to have a chicken breast
and veggies for breakfast, I'm convinced. I'm not saying
it was pleasant to sit down to chicken and veggies for a
breakfast, but I feel so good now that I'll gladly try it
tomorrow. I don't suppose I'll keep feeling so good forever,
so this plan might not last 14 days, but I'll take what I
can get and I'll switch when I need to.

Determined and happier,
Lisa

I am officially FAT!! I weighed in at 134 this morning. Ugh! I hate myself. Everything would be fine if I wouldn't eat continuously from 4:00 on......

Shelley, you are far from officially fat! Remember all of your muscle silly one???? HUGS!

Lisa, sent you info, I think ******* might just be what you need right now.

Still feeling yucky today, but not running a fever so I will go on in to work. Of all times, we have a guest coming from out of town for a few days. Hope he doesn't mind if I go on to bed and leave the rest of the family to entertain. :-)

Gayle ~ Thanks for the update on Dee! I'm glad to hear that she is fine...I'm not sure I would be fine without my computer though! :lol: Hopefully they will get it fixed soon!

I'm glad you are starting to feel better...try not to over do it today!

I haven't heard of the ******* diet, but it sounds like something I might benefit from too. Would you mind sending me the links as well? I lost the 2 pounds, but now I'm at a stand still again. :dizzy:

Sherry ~ You are doing awesome! Keep doing what you're doing...it's working! How was your BP?

Ali ~ Stay away from the cheesecakes! It was about the 10 pound to go mark where I started having diet problems. I got too confident and let bad habits slowly creep back in and before I knew it I had gained 10 pounds instead of losing 10 pounds.

I'm cutting grass today, so lots of exercise and water drinking going on for me! Have a good day everyone!

SuzyMc
06-12-2007, 07:51 AM
I just did a search here at 3FC on the ******* diet and I don't think I could ever survive on such a restrictive diet!

Suzanne 3FC says...
******* is based on the old Atkins induction, before they started allowing low carb candies and other processed foods.

20 grams carbs (total carbs, not net carbs)
2 cups salad and 1/2 cup cooked veggies, or 3 cups salad
70 to 90 grams protein (though some say she now suggests 60 grams)
Just enough fat to make it taste good
No desserts

I also found comments by a few people that said they were only consuming 500 to 600 calories per day on this

alinnell
06-12-2007, 12:14 PM
Things are getting nasty around here. As much as I try, I keep gaining rather than losing (and no, I haven't had any cheesecake!). Next week, I'm going to go drastic (kind of like Lisa) and really cut down. The way I figure it, two weeks of drastic dieting won't kill me and it should be the kick in the pants that I need to keep with it until the end. Oh, and drastic for me means: no bread (at all), no dressing on my lunch salad (probably just have a few cups of vegetables instead of a regular salad) and a low fat dinner. I'll still eat the minimum number of calories--it will just be really low fat (I do well on low fat). Oh, yeah, and I'll stay away from the wine. I've actually done really well with this lately--I had wine Friday night and that was it! Ok, so I've had small martinis each night instead--but at least with a martini, I'm not tempted to have a second one and I do make them half-sized. I guess I'll give those up for 2 weeks as well.

Thanks for asking about my b/p. It's really looking good. I go back in 4 weeks. If it stays down she'll finally lower my dose! This weight off is really helping. I had several skin tags (small moles) on my neck which the doctor removed yesterday.My whole neck is so sore.I had a rough time trying to sleep last night too. Take care...

Hello friends,

Gayle, Thanks very much for the Kimmer info. Very interesting.
There is definitely an extreme end to that club, such as the
people who fast for a month on just water. The main thing I take
away from that discussion is that some people find there's a
difference between low-carb, ultra-low-carb, and zero-carb.
There are people in the world who are giving themselves unlimited
quantities of pork loin but limiting their lettuce and celery.
That boggles my mind, but I'll give it some thought.

Janice, How low is your low-carb plan? Do you cut starches but
not worry about fruits and veggies and dairy, or do you count
grams, or what? Do you have any personal preference or opinions
about the different low-carb plans?

Sherry, Congratulations on your BP improvement. I bet your BP
will keep improving and improving. I used to get a high systolic
reading at the doctor's in part because I hated being judged and
lectured, so I got a double-improvement when I lost weight.

Shelly, Is some of the weight gain because of the injuries that
kept you from exercising? Some people also get unhappy when they
withdraw from exercise. Anyway, I'm glad to see you're able to
bike again. I wished I had as much dedication as you do.

Cheryl, Congrats on your raise! That sounds like a big milestone.
What kind of work do you do?

Allison, Good luck with whatever you decide to do! If you're
surprised by your recent gain and there isn't much bad eating to
explain it, maybe the gain is water, muscle strengthening, hormones,
inflammation, digestion, sodium, inaccuracy in your scale, or
any of the zillions of other things that we assume don't really
matter. These minor factors are more likely to play in if
somebody is changing their eating/exercise habits or when you're
talking about a small fraction of total bodyweight over a short
timeframe. From a mathematical perspective, the best approach is
to get a larger statistical dataset (weigh yourself every day for
50 days and then compute the overall slope of the line AFTER all
the datapoints are available.) For 1-week and 2-week effects,
the most accurate reflection of bodyfat gain/loss might be to
count the calories of your food and exercise. That probably
isn't a very helpful comment, but the math nerd in me can't help
ranting about statistical error.

I'm on my second day of a lower-carb plan, with no milk, no carrot,
no tomato, and I'm still feeling better on this plan than I did
in previous weeks when I was having milk and the semi-carb veggies.
Yay. Another success is handling a social event last night. I belong
to a monthly "Bunco" group, and usually our gatherings are a big
pig-out. Earlier this year I couldn't bear to attend because of
my diet. Last month I hosted so I could control the food. This
month, I went armed with a huge tupperware of raw and steamed veggies
and I swear I was like a chain-smoker nonstop with sticks of
cucumber or asparagus or whatever. Sometimes I dipped them in a tiny
bit of melted cheese, but otherwise my jaw kept chewing nonstop.
It was a bit disgusting to eat such a massive quantity of vegetables
but something about my body, my chemistry, or my personality caused
me to keep chomping away. I'm ashamed of that habit, but it's a
good thing to know about myself. Luckily I only consumed about
200 calories the whole night.

Determined,
Lisa

Allison-You can do it. I have rejoined online Core, hoping it will get me back in gear. I feel better this morning, not as bloaty.

Gayle-Glad you're feeling a bit better.

Sherry-How was the day at Debbie's this past weekend? Did you tell her we miss her?

Lisa-Yes, this gain is totally because of not running. I was running anywhere from 30-40 miles per week up until last June (has it been a year already?) when I started getting foot problems. The biking doesn't have the same results for me as running. I know it's a big contributor to my depression.

http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/4/4_1_2.gif (http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001_ZNxmk042YYCA) Cheryl - Congratulations!!! You deserve that raise, you have worked your butt off for this time. We are sooo proud of you.

Lisa - I don't count carbs. I just stick to low carb vegetables, I eat meat and don't worry about the fat. I find its the protein that keeps me feeling full. I eat cheese, eggs and tons of caesar salad with bacon, and parmesan cheese. Lots of chicken etc.
I don't eat corn, peas, carrots potatoes or any starchy vegetables.
Coffee with cream and splenda and as much crystal lite or diet soda plus water as I can get into me.
I also take sugar free metamucil to help keep everything moving if that becomes a problem.
I was very successful with WW before but just can't seem to stick to it now. Once the points are gone that its.
With low carb if you are hungry or just want something to eat you eat!
Gayle - glad you are starting to feel better.
Shelley - great that you are able to get back out biking.
HEllo to everyone else out there in Floozie Land.

06-16-2007, 09:28 AM
I'm here Janice! I am still not feeling all that great, but still breathing, so I guess thats good! LOL!
We had a friend visit for a few days and have just been busy with life. Getting ready to head outdoors and mow but had to have my morning dose of the Floozies and my coffee.
I am low carbing and watching my fat intake. Eating clean (no junk) lean cuts of meat and using just enough fat in oils to season with. I honestly can say I am the most satified eating this way. On some other plans with the allowed "treats" I end up rummaging through the pantry at night looking for a fix. I think the carbs tend to make me think I'm hungry. Tonight I am preparing a meal to take to my MIL's: I grilled chicken breast and will wrap each one up in a foil packet with about 1/2 T. of low fat italian salad dressing then toss in the crockpot to heat. We are having tossed salad and texas garlic bread. I will eat the chicken and salad and pass on the bread. I need to think of more menu ideas for when I am with family. I really don't want them to now I am watching what I eat...they tend to get helpful and start telling me "just one piece of cake won't hurt" or try this yummy new recipe... you get the idea... it's just easier to keep it to myself and try to prepare stuff which is in my plan, and they will eat also.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Congrats Cheryl on the raise! YOU DESERVE IT!!! Oh, by the way, can I get a loan???? LOL!

alinnell
06-16-2007, 10:52 AM
Gayle~you're absolutely right! I get the same way with carbs. I'm a total carb addict (with respect to breads and crackers). I've decided to completely cut out all breads and crackers for the next two weeks to see if it will put me back on track. Otherwise my diet is very healthy with lean meat and low fat choices.

Everyone have a great weekend!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!

Gayle-I started Core online this past Tuesday and am doing very well. Today will be the test. I'm going to have to eat lasagne that has regular cheese and regular lasagne noodles in it. That's what Mike's making for dinner (my folks are coming.) I plan on eating a small portion. No seconds!! I've still got 27 points left to work with. I've been using the online planner to log all my foods, even though you don't need to on Core. It really helps me. I also biked 80 miles last week and 25 miles today, so I earned a few AP's. Not as many as with running, but oh well!

Debbi - Five pounds WOW take it anyway you can get it. But you're right its not the best way to lose weight.

I don't tell people I'm watching carbs either because they are such little helpers. Glad you are starting to feel better.

After 4 days on ultra-low carbs, I became miserable,
thirsty beyond belief (4 cups of water every hour!!), felt
weak, and I couldn't sleep for a couple nights in a row.

It's been a very rough few days. I bought myself a pint of Haagen
Daaz, but I stopped myself before I ate it. I almost declared a total
quit to losing, because 143 isn't so shabby, but I have no clue as
to a maintenance plan yet, so I would have been dropping off a
cliff instead of a sane and gradual transition, and I don't want to
regain instantly. Anyway, I'm still at it, but I
could use advice from people who've done different variants of
low-carb and who have problems with carbohydrates but who don't
cut them 100% out.

Well, I said I would keep at low-carb only as long as it was working
for me, so quitting was an easy decision, but what to go
onto? I spent a while at a bookstore and got a few book.
I tried the carbohydrate addict's diet, which gives
one brief window of time per day to load up on carbs
(in moderation and balanced with other foods) and the idea
is to restrict the intake so you only get one burst of insulin
per day. THere's a limit how much insulin you can secrete
in a short period of time, so that helps limit the rebound problem.
Sounded IDEAL.
I tried it, I felt much better after the first load-up meal, and
I slept well which I badly needed. But my next low-carb
meals afterwards were horrible because I got a blood sugar
low from ALL my subsequent meals, even the ones with zero
carb. I woke up in the morning feeling energetic and after
breakfast I couldn't keep my eyes open and I was hungry!
Not happy. But if I quit this, then what would I move onto?

I've been on carbohydrate addict's diet for 3 days now and
it's starting to get better. I still feel hungry and I still get
lows after meals, but not as bad as at first. I'm hoping
my body can be trained not to over-react at bkfast and lunch
just because dinner has carbs. We'll see.

Lisa

Congrats to Debi & Shelley for the loss! GREAT JOB GIRLS!

Lisa, I wonder if you were have DT's from the carbs? I read anytime one cuts carbs strictly from a diet, they will have about a week long period of flu like symptoms etc. I hope you find what works for you.
Personally, I am doing a low fat/ low carb plan. I eat lean protein like eggs, poultry, fish, beef, pork and pair it with a few veggies up to 3 cups per day. I watch my dressings and condiments using low fat dressings and I measure out my tablespoons. I use only enough fat/oils to cook and season with. For me it is working, but would probably be to strict for some. I'm dreading this weekend, we need to go out of town to work a special event. I will have no choice by the second day into it but to eat from the food court. Hopefully, most of my gain will be water weight and I can get right back on plan Tuesday.

ShelleyM

Lisa-WW Core is kind of low carb/low fat. It's actually more healthy carbs (whole wheat pasta, brown rice, no bread.)

Gayle-They just changed the healthwalker's board. I don't like it at all. They are going to start charging a fee. They are grandfathering in members until Dec.

coles
06-19-2007, 09:45 AM
Lisa - I have never had that kind of reaction to low carb eating. I am a sugar addict so I sleep much better without the sugar in my body at bedtime.
I do eat lots of veggies though. Ceasar salad with parmesan and bacon etc.
WW is a great plan and has worked for me in the past.
Good Luck.

I was up 3 pounds this morning. Then I used the bathroom and wound up being down those three, plus .5 more. (Total loss from last Tuesday 2.5 pounds).

Since I've started taking my pre-natal vitamins I have been terribly....well....um....stopped up. I am suffering like you wouldn't believe!

I've been drinking a TON of water, which makes the suffering even worse, because I can't pee if I can't poop (yeah, I know, I'm weird). Today my friend suggested I start taking Colace (got the generic). I also started eating Activia yogurt today.

Please wish me luck (you all know--because you love me--that this is a problem I have regularly). :)

Its the extra iron in those vitamins. It did it to me, too. Once your body gets used to it, the problem should go away. Should being the operative word here! It doesn't always go as planned! Good luck!

SuzyMc
06-19-2007, 07:24 PM
I agree with Alison...I would bet money that the "umm problem" is due to the iron in your vitamins. I would stop them for a week and see if that takes care of the problem.

4myself,
You could try asking your ob/gyn if there is a prenatal supplement with
less iron in it, and try a more gradual transition to a lower level of iron.
Lots of people have a wide variety of side effects with iron supplements
and there are lots of different formulations on the market.

Hi folks! Things are getting easier for me. I'm keeping with the
carbohydrate-addict's diet, but my body is finally learning what
to expect at each time of day, so I'm feeling surprisingly stable
even as the availability of foods comes and goes during the day.
I guess the body can store a certain amount of stuff for later, even when
I'm losing weight. Anyway, my diet is low-carb and low-calorie
for the early part of each day, so I'm burning a bit of fat and I'm not
starting the sugar-craving cycle.
Then dinner is high-fiber, high-carb with larger portions. (!!)
At that point if I start the craving cycle, at least I'm in control because
the portions were large. The exit strategy is to sleep off the
rest of the after-effects of the carbs. Then you start the day with
steady blood sugar, but with the carb nutrition inside you and
ready for use whenever you need it. Somehow the carbs from
dinner last until the following dinner, and I feel better. I still
get cravings but not as bad as when I have a bit of carbs here and
there throughout the day, so it's a pretty good compromise.
I'm also happy with it because I can just do a higher-calorie version
of the same thing for my maintenance plan.
That sounds obvious, but really for me it's not obvious because
that won't work on most plans. Unless I'm on total low-carb,
which I can't do, increasing the same diet for maintenance will
increase my carbs, which will increase the cravings and then
I'm in trouble.

I can't believe how much more I know about myself than I did when
I first started dieting as a kid.

Hi all!

Things are moving smoothly again. I'm afraid to start taking the prenatals again, even though I know I need them! :dizzy:

Not much going on here, just trying to stay on top of things at work.

I WAS down .5 pound, but I've gained it back because of the way I've been eating at night----STRESS and TOM!!!!

Judging by the activity (or lack of) on the board, I'm guessing that everyone has been just as busy as I have been! :dizzy: Between taking care of the girls and the new baby, spending weekends with my parents and trying to keep things done up around my own house and at the shop it seems like I haven't had a minute to spare. Tim and I are going to Pittsburgh this weekend for a conference that Tim has to attend. I'm really looking forward to getting away for a few days!

Carol-I was so happy to see your post. Hopefully you will pop in more often.

Suzy-Yes, I think everyone is busy, busy, busy.

I am a bit frustrated. My foot is starting to hurt again, and after 2 weeks on Core, my weight went up .5, so I have only lost 1 lb. total. Very depressing, but I will go on...

Finally a bit of a break! I actually got to go to WW tonight and after a long break because of teaching a night class this summer, I had lost a pound! I was thrilled. Hopefully, I can get back on track now, that class is over. Rob's Mom is better, and I am only teaching one class this next summer session. Hope to be able to pop in more now!

Suzy, have a wonderful trip!

Shelley, hope our foot is better soon, and not as bad as it was before! Take it easy for a few days, I know that is hard for you!

Hi to everyone else and I do hope to catch up soon!
