Hello,
I am new...I am hoping some accountability will keep me motivated. I started on medication for seizures and have gained almost 45 lbs. and it is miserble.
Oh well, I am to:
176.8 from 181....going down!!

Thanks Michelle. You are an inspiration. I'm just 18 days binge free, but if working my butt off will get my butt off (and get rid of this gut, too) ....

Being this tough on myself is the only way I've ever been successful in dropping the weight. I have to get all the way there and STAY THERE !!! No letting anyone discourage me this time.

Water weight first, no doubt.

Oct 1 - 200.0
2 - 198.6
3 - 196.8
4 - 194.2
5 - 193.2
6 - 192.2
7 - 191.8
8 - Scale battery dead at home. 191 at doctor's office
...
12 - 191.8 eating right and exercising, but still plateaued.
13 190.8
14 - 190.0 mini-goal !!
15 - 189.2 Rolling again !
16 - 188.8
17 - 188.2
18 - 187.2
19 - 187.2 :( Working very hard
20 - 186.0

I have been on the East Coast, so I did not have access to a scale in the hotel. We drove 23 hours there on Weds evening, and 23 hours back yesterday.
I am dispoointed in my weight, when I weighed today,...hopefully it is water weight from riding so long.

MyMichelle-I just noticed your note on page three. Thanks girl. I don't know how I maintained either. I actually lost weight this week but I shouldn't have according to my calculations. But, there were a few weeks earlier in the month where I think I should have lost but it did not show up on the scale so maybe things are just catching up. I hope this doesn't mean I will show a gain next week from overeating this past week, but maybe. Oh well, I am going to try to eat according to my plan, which is basically to eat healthy but relatively low calorie food most of the time and lay off those glasses of wine that keep calling to me!

BTW-You are doing GREEAAT!

Terapet - Congrats on GOAL !!!

Thanks Michelle. I needed that. The loss seems to be slowing.

Bfast - 1 cup Special K
1/2 cup rice milk
Lunch - 1 slice 100% whole wheat toast
1 TBSP (measured) peanut butter
1 - 2 oz pkg apple slices
Supper - 6 nights per week up to 400 calories (including Quiznos bullet once a week ;), veggie chilli, etc. but try to include some protein)
1 night a week up to 700 calories (allows me to eat out if careful in my choices ;) )
Naturally, I drink a lot of water and very little else.
I avoid caffeine :devil: like the plague. (It is my biggest trigger to overeat.)

I measure everything. It is an emotional crutch for me. I need that sense of control at this point. Very controlled portions help me know that I can be sure of what I'm doing. The only eating disorder I've ever had has been overeating. My fear is being put on meds (statins, etc.). :( Fear of my dr. is keeping me accountable this time around.

I spend an hour a day on my treadmill almost every single day. I add in a little extra exercise here and there. Keeping music going keeps me moving.(Broke my computer chair "dancing" while seated at my computer, lol.)

Thanks Michelle. Yes, I'm totalling about 700 calories most days. With 400 gone on the treadmill, I should be getting quite large deficits going. I'm actually a little surprised I'm not still losing faster than I am. I know. Patience is a virtue.

So long as I stay away from the caffeine and take my CoQ10 I seem to do okay re: the headaches. My dr. has already given me the okay to be hungry (because I am so overweight that I qualified for wls and have other problems as a result). So my head is okay, but my stomach complains. The hardest part is pushing through to an hour on the treadmill on stored fat calories.

It's slowing ! :cry:

Sea-Thanks for the Congrats on goal. I usually don't count it until after I am below the desired weight for a few days in a row. Usually I bounce around for awhile before I actually go down in weight. Nowadays the bouncing is lasting more like a couple weeks than a couple of days. That's cool with me as long as I am heading in the right direction.

Sea-I am a little confused about your disappointment with your loss. If your deficit is 1100 a day, shouldn't that be about 2 pounds a week? (7 x 1100 =7700. It takes 3500 calorie deficit to lose 1 pound.) You do not have to go hungry to lose weight. I find the key is to eat nutritionally rich but relatively low calorie food (fruits and vegetables) including protein at every meal. Two pounds a week is great. It really adds up. Plus hopefully we develop habits to maintain a healthy weight the rest of our lives

I'm just impatient. I know. I've been down this road before. Still, I admit, I'd like to keep it moving at the rate it starts out at.

I can figure deficit numbers all I want; for some reason, this is the only level at which I lose. As low as 1050 calories, I start gaining again. But I'm grateful to have figured out a plan that works for me, and that the plan is something I can live with. I'm not experiencing hunger at the degree I was at the first of the month. The body is adjusting.

My food choices are pretty sound choices - whole grains, fresh fruit, steamed veggies, protein (low fat, of course). My favorite condiment is mustard. The only junky thing I've eaten was a little Batch 83 bbq sauce at Quiznos. As it turns cooler, I'll switch my Special K for oatmeal. At this level, it would be crazy to waste calories on junk.

Staying on plan all month is correcting my relationship with food. I was going to stray yesterday but couldn't bring myself to do it.

My Michelle: What plan are you on exactly? Cause I'd be lucky if I'd lost 5 pounds in a month.

My Michelle

I eat about 1500 to 1700 cals a day, mostly veggies and lean proteins and fruit, no processed foods, no snacky type foods (no pretzels, pita chips, etc), very few high glycemic carbs (no white breads or pastas or that sort of stuff). No junk food and no food "treats".

And I exercise almost every day, but mostly walking and various aerobic DVDs. Pretty moderate exercise really, nothing over the top.

You are so close to your goal, weight loss always slow then, I'll be happy if I lose 5 pounds next month also, this month is exceptional for me.

Sea-I understand. You are just adjusting to your new food. Good, I just did not want to see you go hungry unnecessarily. Congrats on your many pounds lost.

MyMichelle-I pretty much eat and exercise in the same way as you except I do have treats. Most of my meals are very simple. Thanks for the congratulations and way to go on your awesome weight loss this month.

My Michelle: No fair, 1500 - 1700 calories a day! I'm sooo jealous, I have to cut mine down to at least 1,100 a day to lose a pound a week, with exercise. But to be honest you probably eat much more healthy food, while I'm really focused on portion control, because I am a HUGE bored/binge eater. Congrats on the no junk food though, I have to plan at least one unhealthy treat every two days, it's what keeps me on track.
Congrats on your weight-loss this month, that's a great achievement!

Totsandfries: I have never been able to add in treats without backsliding and binging. I'm a massive binger, and that behavior scares me the most. So I've had to cut out all junk food, trigger food, and food treats.

I wish I could eat the occasional slice of cake, but I don't seem to be able to. Maybe someday.

Everybody here is doing so well. Obviously, the accountability is working to help us. Thank you everyone! :grouphug:
I admit to jealousy of several of you - your successful calorie limits, your being able to include treats. Just remember, those are reasons to make this be the time you reach and maintain goal. Our bodies are more resistant the more we yo-yo. Let's keep it moving the right direction as we enter November. We're going to do this! And we're going to hang on to our success!

Jill, it's a loss!!! You didn't gain, you didn't maintain, you LOST weight! In the big picture, that is just fantastic! I personally think any downward trend is a joy!
