Thanks Jacqui for the information On the tortilla shell it is whole grain and only 11 carbs, but I passed on it yesterday.

My carbs today are 29g higher than yesterday thanks to some chili I made. I really hope it doesn't do a lot of damage. Sodium was high today also, Might have to skip on the chili … let's see what the scale says ...

B ~ Turnips, green tea
L ~ Chili, Colby Jack cheese
S ~ Ham and pistachios
D ~ Cole Slaw, green tea

only 3 bottles of water … I have got to do better

… again today with the cravings … I wanted some animal crackers, but I didn't eat any. Victory Day #2 down


S 12/08 ~ 178.2
M 12/09 ~ 178.6 (+0.4) TTOM
T 12/10 ~ 177.6 (-1.0) TTOM
W 12/11 ~
T 12/12 ~
F 12/13 ~
S 12/14 ~ Cheat Day

I am back down to 176.5! (Thanks Whoosh Fairy!) Hopefully it will keep going and I'll finally leave 177-178 behind!

Week 19:
12/7: 177 Cheat Day
12/8: 179
12/9: 178
12/10: 178
12/11: 176.5
12/12:
12/13:

Today's meals (I'll add to it as I go):
Breakfast: 2-hard-boiled eggs and 5 walnut halves, a teapot of green tea, Mio water
Lunch: a chicken salad "sandwich" using layers of lettuce as bread (I don't even miss the bread when I do this!), Mio water
Snack: 5 walnut halves, Mio water
Dinner: Steak, white beans, teapot of green tea, Mio water

Rennie, congrats on losing a lb! And I eat chili all the time in the winter! In looking at your diet, the only thing I would suggest, and I hope you don't mind, is that you eat some form of protein at breakfast if at all possible. If you start the day only with carbs, they could trigger your hunger. In fact, I try to eat some form of protein or fat at every meal. Even if I eat only a salad, I add some kind of meat to it. Have a great day!

Jacqui way to go Thanks for the suggestion. I only had chicken broth this morning. Eating egg salad now. I'll try it tomorrow, maybe I'll eat the chili for breakfast tomorrow then it will be in my system early and won't linger which is my worry.

I stayed the same today 177.6. I do believe could I have slept the extra hour and got a full 8 hours of sleep it may have been a little lower but probably not a pound

Rennie, I think chili for breakfast is a great idea!

Thanks Jacqui, cause I have two servings left for me in the fridge. My husband ate the bulk of it last night and tonight with corn muffins last night and garlie sticks tonight. that bread smells so good

B ~ low sodium chicken broth, green tea
L ~ egg salad, Jif natural peanut butter, water
S ~ ham, Colby Jack cheese stick and pistachios
D ~ chocolate protein shake made with water

My calories are low again today. I thought they were under 1000 but they are a little over that … though still low, I'm not hungry. My carbs are better today. My worse time of the day is between 2:30 and 4:30. I could eat a ton of junk at that time but I keep telling myself I can do it on Saturday. I can't remember where I posted my menu for Saturday so I can add it up. I don't want to over indulge off to make some green tea before bed

Good night

Hi Rennie, I did wonder if you were eating enough. Turnips for breakfast and cole slaw for dinner seemed pretty light but then I didn't know if you had made up the difference in calories with the chili, ham, and pistachios. Having broth for breakfast and a shake for dinner doesn't sound very filling either, but then I'm not familiar with protein shakes. I assume it was a low-carb, low/no-sugar version like an Atkins protein shake. But I'm curious, what is the benefit of a protein shake over solid food?

First let me congratulate you on 175, Jacqui

I eat when I'm hungry and I'm not a big eater so I do get full but I know that's not healthy. Now if I'm eating junk (starchy stuff) I tend to over eat and then feel bad later, stomach ache, bloated. In the mornings I'm usually rushing with my daughter so I grab quick. The turnips do fill me up and maybe it's the water and tea that help also. I have to take my medicine in the morning after I eat or it makes me nauseous so quick and already prepared is easy. The shake for dinner yesterday was because I didn't get off till late and I attempted to prepare it in the car before church. That didn't work well so since it was late I finished preparing it and drank it when I got home. Again convenience and I can't go to bed with a heavy full stomach. My shake wasn't Atkins it is 8 carbs and 26g protein so it works

Yay on the drop, Rennie! I understand about busy mornings. I always have boiled eggs on hand, and as you can see, I eat them just about every morning! Occasionally I don't get to the store on time to buy more, but usually as soon as I get home from the grocery, I'm boiling eggs! I looked up protein shakes on the Slow Carb Diet and found this recipe which I thought you might like: http://www.eproteinshakerecipes.com/...protein-shake/. Unfortunately, it doesn't give a calorie count since the Slow Carb Diet isn't about counting calories. Since you've been eating too few, I was hoping it would mention them. No such luck! And oh, okay, I wondered if you were on the go when you substituted a shake for dinner. That makes sense to me, lol!

Today's meals (I'll add to it as I go):
Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs, a handful of walnuts, a teapot of green tea, Mio water
Lunch: a salmon lettuce wrap, made with canned Alaskan wild salmon, chopped egg, chopped celery, just enough full-fat mayo to hold it together, and layers of lettuce to wrap it in, Mio water
Snack: a handful of almonds, Mio water
Dinner: Steamed yellow squash and vidalia onions, a can of black olives, a teapot of green tea, Mio water

Jacqui the problem I have with the eggs is burping them. It's a horrible taste and foul smelling when I do it. I don't know what causes it so it stops me from eating them.

Rennie, that's too bad. It sounds like you have an egg intolerance, which means you're not able to break down the proteins in eggs properly. I can't process raw onions or red apples, so I know how it is not to get along with a certain food! The good news is that you can eat healthy foods (like chili) anytime of the day, even breakfast!

Go Jacqui go!

love2b150 I like the syntrax brand protien powders. most of them only have 0-2 carbs and 24 grams of protien, then it just depends on what you mix it in.

pnkrck, I'll have to check out that protein powder. The one I buy is only $16 at Walmart and I don't drink it that often like I use to.

Well I had an apple today and a peanut block which is really a candy bar but I eat it for the nuts, doesn't do anything for me otherwise. I laid on the sofa and woke up at 12:45 and then had to rush to get to work on time. I was only 2 minutes late. I still need to plan my cheat day out. I have really learned this year not to eat a lot of things so I don't know how much of a cheat day it will be.

B ~ chili, fiesta cheese, green tea
L ~ Colby Jack cheese stick, ham, Gala apple, peanut butter, s/f jello
S ~ peanut block
D ~ Cole slaw, green tea

I got all of my water in today and I went to the gym finally. I did my 4 miles and burned 591 calories.
