I looked at my food journal and realized it also could have been because my fat was LOWER than my protein that day. So it might have been that, either way, I used the stick again last night and it read at trace amounts so whatever it was apparently didn't effect me for long.

Sugar in deviled eggs?!?!?! wtf!! why? that sounds gross, i like mine very mustardy and tangy

LOL Pixi - I'm a fan of sweet deviled eggs!

I make mine with Splenda and SF Sweet Pickle Relish too Usually I find that's a Southern (USA) thing - but we tend to sweeten everything! HA!

I even add sugar (Spelnda now) to my cole slaw.

Now, I realize just how much sugar I was consuming on a daily basis and I haev usually well under the 3 packets of artifical sugar a day - but it's amazing to me how much sweeter things to do taste to me - even in regular foods and I can pick up on actual sweet taste that before I never did.

Sue- this is what your body does though. You always lose some then bounce back up some for a few days then go down again. You will be under goal by the 4th for sure if you stay on track!

Labor day sounds good to me Almost exactly 8 weeks.

(sheepishly returns after absence...)

Hi.

I've been off-focus. Not crazy town, but not on the "weight loss" warpath either. Trying out this idea I have of maintaining my weight for the summer.

It's been more challenging than I'd hoped. I had far too much fruit for several weeks, my weight inched up and up. Hunger has been much more of a problem than when I eat truly low carb. Too much dairy too.

And no tracking, which is probably the biggest mistake of all.

I've also been weighing only intermittently, which is fine, but also contributes to the lack of focus, or is a sign of the lack of focus, chicken or egg, as you wish...

Scale yesterday freaked me out though, as the weight was up considerably above what I consider my upper limit of 190 (it was 194).

And I'm worried about heading to the States for a month in a bad mental place about my weight (which in the past has just led to "what the ****" eating and made a bad situation far, FAR worse).

So back to focus and strict low carb for a few days here, hoping to knock off a few pounds and couldn't care less if it's water or fat, just want that scale to be under 189 come Sunday when we fly.

I will not be anywhere near my goal for this challenge, but as long as I manage to keep my head in the gain and not regain this summer I'll consider it a success!

(Have been very preoccupied with finishing my first book which is due to the publisher this week, which is the major reason for my absence and for dropping focus on weight loss these past few weeks).

*hugs* to Sarah! I understand deadlines can cause things to slip. Get back to it. But even IF you are not below 189 before Sunday when you fly out DO NOT let things go to heck for the summer because you aren't exactly where you want to be. That is just how you get REALLY far from where you want to be.

If you want to focus on maintenance for the summer go for it, but don't do it by not tracking. Pick tracking goals, be it calories, or carbs, and/or daily/weekly limits for fruit and dairy. Then track them. Many of us got heavy because we are not good at self limiting without tracking. It looks like without tracking you move backwards so you are not necessarily ready to go there yet. I know, personally, I will ALWAYS have to track my food or risk regain. I want you to be able to enjoy your holiday but not come back regretting it too If it gets hard, get your butt on here for encouragement!

What do you write, and to what part of the states are you going? I think you've told us before but I can't remember!

My friend's birthday was last night, we went to get mexican food. I fully intended to get fajitas and stick to plan, then my friend was RAVING about their enchiladas. OH WELL, back to it today. Since it was one meal (and 2 Ferrero Rocher's because I knew I was already out of ketosis from the food) hopefully I can get back into ketosis in a day or two and the carb flu won't be too bad. Today is supposed to be a trainer day so that will help burn a good chunk off, as long as he doesn't cancel!
