Brooklyn... welcome back to you! I am glad you have joined us again on your journey!

Calee.. a big time NSV.. you just know better about your foods! That is 1/2 the battle.. GOOD for you and Great for you to toss out the old wheat stuff that was left in your room. Its only food.. not a valuable object nor a living thing. It can be thrown away!

PIXIKAT??! ohohhhhhh I am hoping for a good woosh for you! I want to be in the 230's with you and Mara!!! as I am finally heading there today - Hooray!!

Thank you so much sue!! You are doing great! Good morning everyone. In the first week for me I always weigh daily then I go to every week after that just gets me motivated to see the scale moving water or not lol. Today I was down to 211.2! Moving in the right direction and not going up at all so that makes me happy!! So that's 6lbs so far. Hoping this next week brings the same changes then I will be so busy when school starts again I am hoping I will just keep my mind off the scale because I know it will probably slow down soon but of course still eating healthy! I am in my finale semester of nursing school and will be graduating in may with my associates degree that is 30 weeks from now. My goal is to lose 60lbs by then which is 2 a week and I feel that is a healthy rate to lose at. Any loss will be fine with me though as long as it keeps going in that direction Now that I am starting to get over the induction flu that seems to hit me so hard day 3 and 4 I am hoping to incorporate more exercise! I hope you all have a great day!!

Haven't been able to check in, crazy work week, so glad it's over!

Another pound gone and still feeling confident and encouraged, which is sometimes a harder thing for me than eating right!

Had one very off day, thanks to the folks at McDonalds. I was in a rush and hit the drive through. Ordered a salad with grilled chicken but got crispy chicken instead. Didn't realize until I was already back at work and had only a few minutes to eat. I was starving, didn't have any snacks with me so I ate it. I checked the nutritional info later ... it was more than double the carbs than I usually eat in a meal! Being insulin resistant and very used to eating low carb my body was NOT HAPPY!! and all I could think about was the consequences: I was probably out of ketosis and how long was it going to take to get back in!

I have great support at home though, and of course you folks, which helps.

Last week my boyfriend brought home an low carb/IP recipe he thought I would like from his chiropractors office (they do IP in the same office, so they have recipes in the waiting room) This week he gave me a gift certificate for his chiropractor! He is probably just sick of me complaining about my sore back, lol, but sweet just the same!

Congrats to the one year folks! Have a great week everyone!

YEA SUE!!! in the 230s.....what did you do special?

pixikat you are soon to follow!!!

So I"ve been pigging out the last few days, work has been killer and my willpower just sucks.....pizza and margaritas last night. I had a good start to the day but ending with margaritas and burgers and fries. Then tomorrow is the playoff games!!! I need smacked in the head with a large chunk of willpower! Although hesitant, I did weigh in at 176.5 this morning.

Brooklyn.. you are doing great! Love the initial weight loss.. it is so motivating! I am just a slave to the scale, so I weigh daily too (actually morning and right after work as I usually will weigh 2 lbs less the next morning) Keep kicking butt! woohoo!!

CapCod.. so glad to see you! and what a boyfriend you have. AWESOME! and not to worry about the fried chicken. . well that was history..and things happen - shoot not a week ago I had some sugar chocolates. They were calling my name. We are human!

Pixikat.... I will never leave you! I promise as I know you will be in the 230's this week if not today! I just know it! I need you in the 230's as they are nice in there.. but not as nice as our bunch in the 240's.

Smith.. Talk to yourself in the mirror.. or better yet.. read the Positive messages thread! that will do it. Just remember...If you just take care of yourself today.. well that is 1 less day to have to travel to lose your weight! I tell myself.. do I really want it... well if I do.. I can have it tomorrow as it WILL be available tomorrow. I know you will get going again. That is how my woosh finally happened. I stuck to plan finally (and did not eat a big dinner like I used to do). So my woosh week that I have missed since October finally happened. Now I know what to do for myself. You will figure your body out too!

LULU...Now we need to work on 171... going to chant that for you this week. 171...171....171.....171... I see it coming!

Holding at 172 - on the road and can't weigh until Saturday - actually I'll be happy just staying at 172 - sometime the road is hard on food choices..but I have a plan. Best wishes for an on-plan week!!!

Well 210 on my official weigh in day and good day to do it because AF stopped by and I am not going to want to for the rest of the week lol. Nothing like her coming in the second full week of induction but alas at least it answers the questions of why I have been having such intense cravings the last couple days, but she wont break me :P. Hope you all are doing well this morning and you have a wonderful day!!

Lulu- good luck on the road great to have a plan I know its hard when we cant be in our safe place lol!

Big big congrats on the anniversary celebrations here.

I have been predominantly low carb since 1999 with a few years of raw vegan thrown in. I remember when this website had very few members.

After my weigh in at WW yesterday morning I decided that I had to really commit to eating low carb again. I've been a lifetime member since 2011. So yesterday was my first fully committed day back.

1/16 152.8
1/20. 151.8
Goal 148 for now, then 145

Have a fun day!

Good morning everyone.

I hope that you all are doing great and your successes rub on me too, lol. Unfortunately I have to say that I am on plateau. I keep losing and gaining the same pound around 153. It has been over two weeks now. I have seen 152 a few times, but it does not stuck around, lol. I guess I need to keep myself motivated and not let discouragement take over. Reading your posts here helps a lot and I keep reminding myself that if I hang in there *eventually* I will a smaller number, lol. I am hoping this eventually comes sooner rather than later, lol.

Anyhow, I was also visiting the IP board to read more posts and prevent myself from being too discouraged when I saw that someone has posted this video of Robert Lustig and people at UCSF talk about sugar and obesity. I don't think there is much new that we have not heard before, but still it was good to hear again how bad sugar is for our body. When I am discouraged like now I like to hear again how reasonable low carb lifestyle is for our body, to hopefully stay strong and see scale show smaller number, lol. Anyhow, here is the link

I found this thread and while I am at a very late start I would like to join. The name is what drew me, love yourself. I have spent months abusing myself with food, binge eating and watching the scales go up and down over and over along with my emotions. I don't plan on losing that much but I would like to somehow stick to healthy eating, no over eating, and no binging, from now til Valentine's day. I would like to drop 5 lbs if that is possible, but unsure. I haven't stepped on the scale in weeks, will do so in the morning to try to get an accurate reading. Last I knew I was at 180, which is the highest I have been in years.

1/17 180

I have been eating OP I think. I haven't been tracking really but sticking with low carb foods. Even with that I think that my carbs may have crept up slightly. I also made a hot water, lemon, honey, and salt gurgle for my throat and swallowed some accidentally. (tastes horrible but all ingredients are antibacterial and really seems to help heal faster)

Can't weigh - just checking in! Ate on plan yesterday and have a plan again for today. Using myfitnesspal, helps me stay true to low carb and that 4 letter word "portions". Going to work out right now in my "fake it til I make" approach to exercise!! HA! My body is changing again and I know this sounds funny but I think my apple is actually paring down!! And let's just say my face has a lot more "character" than it used too!!
