Hey everyone....Well another week is starting and I hope all of you are doing well. I am just kinda hangin in there by my teeth.

I am not worried, as things will settle down soon.

You know we are working on buying a house, it is a HUGE investment for HUBBY and I since technically we have 2 others!!! OMG!
We live in one that we are keeping, and I have one rented out, so we will have 3 homes!!!! Our nephew will live in the house we are currently occupying that is why it is a VERY good thing that the one we are trying to buy will be mostly furnished..since then we can leave most of our stuff in the other house for him.

We are supposed to sign a purchase agreement today or tomorrow, and the appraisal was ordered last week Friday so hopefully that will get done by mid-week. (Fingers crossed) We *may* be in by the end of the month as I said before, but then again if everything goes well we could be in before Thanksgiving!!! The people called me last night and they are getting THIER things our and asked if we would want to buy the safe they had also, but they wanted to much for it considering we didnt NEED one, so we told them NO. My daycare lady said she saw it on the driveway with a 4-sale sign on it..lol Figure if they cant sell it maybe they will leave it..lol

WISH US LUCK, there is a long way to go still!!!

HAVE A GOOD WEEK EVERYONE!!! CONGRATS!! AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!!

Congrats on the house, StillTryin!

ShyMoment, I thought that was your dog, in your backyard.. and I'm thinking, wow that dog looks more like wolf... and then I read your post. LOL

Hi everyone, doing good here - no cheating, exercising every day. I even did it when my husband was home, a huge step for me. 2 weeks until my next weigh in, 4 weeks today I leave on my trip!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone. Here's a bit of my history. I Started Alli shortly after it hit the market. I lost 20 lbs and was doing very well. I then had some medical problems not related to Alli. I didn't want to mix my new meds with Alli so I stopped. It to make sure if I had any effects it wasn't because of Alli. Today I've started Alli.
I hope that I can join this tread and support you with your weight loss plans.
My ticker is wrong. My new Alli Starting weight is 220

Shy, I liked the pictures.

Thin, keep up the good work!

Mezmerise, welcome to the group!!!

We went away over the weekend, and I've been in a depressed mood the whole time. I hate feeling like this. I tried to make good food choices, but today I have totally eaten out of control. I still took Alli, and no TE yet. I hope to get out of this funk and get back to doing what I should do.

Morning All!

Welcome to Mezmerise!! Dive right in, the water's fine.
ShyMoment: It's tough to realize that those are wild animals. Gorgeous!

StillTrying: They say that the only thing more stressful than buying a house is building one. Either way, it'll drive ya loopy. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Well, I made it through my birthday week, intact.
We had 2 meals out, and ate spaghetti and pizza during the week. Like the guy of TV says, "I should be ready to explode about now." of course, it's back to the plan, as of yesterday.

Weigh in this morning shows me holding steady since last week. It gives me so much hope to think that it is possible to live and eat normally (occasionally), without continuing to gain weight. Awwww, the wonders of lifestyle changes.

In celebration, here's another of my favorites:
"You do not really understand something, unless you can explain it to your grandmother."

Happy Tuesday!!

10-23-2007, 10:25 AM
Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Beck - Happy Belated B-DAY past and pizza are my major downfalls! For some reason even a little bit a pasta will make that scale go up.

Tammy - Is it sunny where you live? I know that I get down when it's cloudy here. I heard somewhere you can buy a light that will help when your feeling low. I really need to check into that since at TOM I get really down. I hope you feel better soon.

I'm a huge dog lover! I believe there was a malamute in a movie called The Lost Boys. It was the 1st time I've seen one. He was beautiful! They look very powerful! I really need to get to the zoo again. The one time we went the wolfs were out while they worked on their habitat. So were alot of other animals so we missed out on what was the top of my list. I really wanted to see the Baluga Whale, Wild Horses and a Tiger

Mez-WELCOME, we are all so glad to have you here.

I love DOGS!! Especially BIG dogs...St Bernards are my FAV's!!! But we are not having any of them around here so I can love them from a far.

YOU ARE ALL DOING SOOOOO GOOD! I AM SO PROUD OF ALL OF YOU.

Shy, you are doing so good!!!

Beck- You are right it is stressful, but it will be SOOOO worth it when it is over, and thankfully it is a short process for us. I just faxed all the documents to the loan company that they requested, like paystubs, taxes, ect. That was 32 pages!!!! :fr: But my boss was gone so I just did it from work here..lol So I would say that (pending the appraisal) we will be in our new house by DECEMBER!!!! :carrot:!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!!!:hohoho:

Hi coldhawg, welcome to the Alli thread! 4lbs is an awesome start!

I'm in Canada so we had our thanksgiving a few weeks ago, I ate way too much and did have some treatment effects, but better that than gaining weight. Remember, treatment effects can be your friend. :)

Beck, good going for making it through your birthday and your weight staying steady!

Mez, it was a bit sunny over the weekend, but since then we've had rain and clouds. I've heard about those lights. Might have to check it out.

Shy and Got2, I have been on depression meds since my parents passed away within 8 months of each other almost 10 years ago. My doctor has tried to wean me off a couple of times, and I've always gone back on. That was before I retired. This summer, I started weaning myself off, and I haven't taken any since the beginning of August. I was doing great even with all of the health problems that my husband started having in September. I thought when he finally came home from the hospital that if I could make it through that , I can make it through anything! Up until the end of last week,things were ok. Today I have felt a little better, so I hope it continues to improve.

Got2 and Still, we'll keep praying for those in California!!

Welcome to Coldhawg!!

Nikki, glad to hear you are getting back on the wagon. I've been slipping off, and that's why I haven't lost any more weight. Maybe I'll hang on a little tighter with you!

Tammy hang in there. like shy said you have been through a lot with your husband and hospitals..that is very draining and hard on a soul.just rest and one moment at a time. :hug: Calli is still burning but the winds are gone. they said on the news tonight the fires were set by an arsonist. damn sicko . the air was heavy with smoke and my husbands asthma really flared too. i have a few light bulb moments ( hate that phrase ) the last couple of days. i went to breakfast with my dh and instead of ordering cheese omlete, hashbrowns and toast like usual, i ordered 2 egg beaters, dry toast with jelly and fruit !! and it was enough ! so my original thinking was to get healthy and eat better, so if my weight loss is slow (grrrrrr) at least i am making better choices ! :)

I have tired egg beaters and LOVE them! Mommies to girls my tips are petty basic read the material that comes with it and DON'T TEST the limits unless your ready to have a treatment effect. I've joined the ALLI url when I started it has some great breakfast/lunch/dinner ideas. Plus a fourm for questions. That doesn't mean you can't ask something here.

As for me keeping my fingers crossed for my weight in friday.

I never have problems when I eat cheese.

The sun is shining today, and I am feeling better. Hubby has been moody and grumpy. I know he still isn't feeling the best. I told him we are going out for dinner. Not sure that if that made him more moody or happy! lol

Welcome Mommytogirls!! Great group here!!

Shy - Glad you liked them. I know that for some the change in taste is hard but I found that for me personally It didn't matter because I always loaded it with good stuff like onions, peppers actually any veggie.

Tammy - Fingers crossed I've not had an effect with cheese but I only wave it over the top of what I'm cooking. :) I'm way to big of a chicken to step into the unknown world of T.E.

Mommytogirls - Love the cute baby pic.

As for me crossing my finger tighter for my weight in tomorrow. Also I hope I don't have to have an operation on my shoulder. I fell in the bathroom in May just now going to the doctor since I can no longer handle the pain when I move my arm certain ways. The good thing is I'll be able to weight myself at home and there so see how off my scale is.
Then I can start making my new ticker.

Tammy

I just bought some egg beaters yesterday. Haven't had them in several years. I thought maybe I'd use it for recipes. I might try some for breakfast with some cheese and onion in it.

Our dinner out last night was nice. Didn't even eat half of what we ordered so we have at least one other meal and possibly two. Large servings.

My scales are the same as of yesterday's weigh in. No gain though, so that is good!

You and your cheese lolol. I can't keep the darn string cheese in the house or I would eat the whole darn bag.


I have a weakness for cheese, and this was a block of Balderson 4 year old Cheddar - sharp, it was sooo creamy and delicious and majorly high fat. I am so suprised I didn't have any TE's after that.

Okay, but you guys would have been proud of me today, I went to a luncheon at my daughter's school. They had soooo much food, lasagna, penne & sauce, sausage & peppers, chicken wings, chicken curry and rice, jerk chicken, sweet & sour ribs, samosas, quiche, caesar salad dripping with dressing and cheese, garlic bread and more... and the desserts were crazy - doughnuts, brownies, tarts, squares, Nanaimo bars..

and what did I have?

I had the bottle of water I brought with me (they were just serving juice boxes and coke)

I had a plate of raw carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas, cucumber, red peppers... I had the tiniest spoonful of rice with a chicken breast from the jerk chicken (I took the skin off so it was plain white meat) and for dessert I had 2 slices of watermelon :)

Phew it was hard sitting at a table with people who were loading their plates and going back for seconds and thirds, but I'm feeling pretty proud of myself. Hope I'm as strong when I'm on holiday :o

hi everyone, I haven't gotten to try alli yet. Does it really work? I have been looking at some info about it. Does it really cause you to have oily....spotting? I am overweight and depressed have mood swings, not real sure what to do or try at this point. I have lost weight before, but it is not as easy now. I don't work right now so it is hard to afford alot of extra diet foods. Not real sure I want to take alli if i have to stay close to a bathroom you know.

ThinGirl in FatBody
10-26-2007, 06:35 PM
It really can give you oily spotting IF you eat really high fat foods... if you stick to a diet plan with meals in the 15gram region, you should have no problems. You don't want to take Alli and then binge on a big mac and fries.

Alli helps me lose more weight then by dieting alone. I was losing 1-2 lbs a week on my diet but with Alli I lose 2 - 3 a week on average. It also stops me from cheating because I don't want the Treatment Effects.

Tammy
10-26-2007, 11:42 PM
Thin, I am so proud of you for how you did at the luncheon!! Way to go!!! It is hard to stay away from the other foods, but you feel so much better when you do.

Nikki, I have never cared for fried eggs. More of a scrambled egg person. The bagel with cream cheese would be ok with lowfat cream cheese, wouldn't it? I usually eat bagels with pb or jelly. Rarely have cream cheese.

Sue, great going on only having 3 slices of pizza! I love pizza!! I used to like the thick crust, got away from that several years ago. Then I was on a medium thickness kick. Now I only eat thin crust and load up the vegies.

Shy, I bought some string cheese a couple weeks ago. I didn't pay attention apparently, because I bought the full fat kind. I ate one, and I didn't like it, so I checked. Ended up giving the bag to my nephews. I went back to the store about the reduced fat kind. I really like them.

Bama, I eat normal foods for the most part. I have tried to go with the reduced fat cheeses, for me and for my husband. He needs to watch things also. I try to broil or bake meats instead of frying, and I've been doing that for a few years. I love my George Fourman grill. Fruits and vegies are being seen more often at our meals than before. Good luck in your journey!!

Just got home from a football game. Darn it got cold! Glad my friend brought a blanket. It was really nice all day so I guess I wasn't thinking about the sun going down and the heat going with it!

StillTryin
10-27-2007, 10:33 AM
I like egg beaters, but I too like the occasional fried egg. I had a fried egg this morning for breakfast. It is my special treat when I work on Saturdays....I go to the cafe and have my coffee, 1 egg, 1 slice of toast and 2 sausage links. That is the only time all week I eat sausage or regular eggs. Usually at home it is oatmeal, cold cereal, or plain toast and PB.

I am still not "back" but I am working on it, I can feel it coming..lol I am looking at my food the way I am supposed to again, and making smarter choices. Staying away from the fatty's. I am going shopping this weekend and will be buying another round of Alli. That should really help me when I leave for my 5 day vacation on Monday!

I've been having the same breakfast for months now. I mix 2 cereals, an organic Spelt cereal and 1/3 of a cup of Bran buds (super high fiber) and I have this with 1% milk and a banana. It's a great breakfast that I look forward to every morning.

I have to admit that sometimes I feel a little jealous when my hubby has a bagel with butter AND cream cheese all over it.

On the cruise I plan to have a bran cereal and a banana every morning, I won't be eating eggs benedict or waffles, that's for sure.

Hello all. Just stopping by to say hello and wish you well.

I took Alli for about 8 weeks, lost 8 lbs. Taught me a lot about managing my food and portion control. I really REALLY liked it, I just grew out of it. I never really got the effects that others got unless I ate A LOT of food. If I did have TE's I felt I was fine, when I was really overeating. Eventually I kept forgetting to take it and then decided not to take it any longer. I still have about half a 90 ct bottle that I'll keep around till they expire. If I feel I need to go back on it, they'll be there!

Good luck and happy losing!

I was just curious how spaced out do the pills have to be? I am sure it prob. says somewhere in the info. that came with the pills. I haven't had a chance to sit down and read all of it. Anyway I took a pill with Lunch (@ 12pm) and then I am having dinner early at 4pm. Is that enough time inbetween to take another pill with dinner?!

Shy--
You might want to look at the Wasa crisp breads (aka crackers) the 7 grain one has 60 cal/0 fat/13 carb/35 mg sodium----I am not too worried or knowledgeable on sodium but they are another idea for you---they are not bad with a bit of 100% fruit spread or a thin coat of peanut butter----My 7 year old will even eat them.:goodluck:

Shy, you should get a box of bran buds.... 1/3 cup is 13grams of fibre, or 52% of your recommended fibre intake. :)
