Can I join in?!

I've gone from 307 to 289 in a relatively short space of time - a little over three weeks, I think. I haven't been in the 280's for years but this morning, sure enough, I was down a pound. Exactly 90 pounds to go till onederland!

I've been behaving badly the past few days. I've definitely been over-eating due to snacks, and I've had all these terrible cravings for candy (and I totally gave in yesterday and binged on swedish fish). I started a new exercise video this week (Chicometrics) for strengthening and toning, so perhaps the increase in exercise is making me hungry. The candy thing is probably because my time of month is coming up.

I went on a shopping trip today and bought myself some healthy whole grains and beans. I've decided to try following the Carb Lover's Diet, which is basically a low-cal diet that requires 10-20 grams per day of something called resistant starch, which is found in a variety of carb-rich foods like pasta, beans, bananas, and potatoes. The resistant starch is supposed to help promote fat burning and decrease the amount of calories absorbed. Since it's still low calorie (and that's the plan I've been following), I figure it can't hurt! Besides, I like carbs.

It will also help get me back to the "whole foods" approach that I started with. I've gotten away from it, and I definitely have seen a slow-down in weight loss. I was thinking about my recent trip to Belize over spring break and how I ate plenty of food but lost about 7 pounds. Part of it was because I was very active during the trip (lots of walking around all day). But I think the other part was that we were eating lots of natural food and very little processed food. We were also getting a lot of resistant starch, as I found out when I was reading about the Carb Lover's Diet. So I'm thinking that following this plan might really help.

Hello everyone
Congrats Change4Life , glad it finally moved for you.

Update:
To date I have lost 12.3 pounds. I am now at 265.7. I'm just kind of on edge that it will bounce back up after my TOM.

Wow Amy! Nice momentum there! Well done! So glad to have you here with us.

I was just reading about resistant starch too, shadowclaw. I ordered some Hi-Maize corn starch from King Arthur Flour. I plan to make some pancakes with it that also includes buckwheat and coconut flour. I miss pancakes! I also miss eating legumes, which I see is also on the resistant startch list. But they make my blood sugar spike, so I have to avoid them. I really, REALLY hope the Hi-Maize corn starch doesn't affect me negatively!

Just touching base here...glad to see everyone! Mrs. T and silentarctic, I have missed you! Amazing how our "gang" has grown in numbers here! Love all the added support and enthusiasm!

I feel cold and I want to nap...TTFN

Thanks mom2gbsb & geoblewis!

Hello all...reporting in today. Working my way towards my goal. After 2 weeks I am down -3.0. Yeah!!! I will take it. So far its been 4 weeks and I can honestly say I am loving this. I don't feel like I am on a restricted diet. I get to enjoy the food. True I do not eat anything and everything, and I will occassionally have chocolate and doritos, but not everyday and not the whole bag. I like that I can eat good and flavorful food and still lose 3.0 in 2 weeks...not complaining at all. I am so close to the 210s...I hope to be there come 4/16 weigh-in...at 221 I can only hope the scale says 217-218 on 4/16...let's hope!! just got to get better at exercising..uggh now that eating is controlled got to move a little more...was walking when the weather was warmer..now it is back crummy here in NJ...no excuse..got to get out there and just do it!!

Trying on clothes this morning. Shirts and pants that were too small for me, that I either bought hoping to someday wear, or got off ebay and they were too small or I had long since outgrew. I figured they would be my spring wardrobe.

Not a chance. Everything is HUGE. Not, "Gee, that's a little loose, but I can wear it for a while" big, but "falling off just no way in the world I could ever wear that in public" big.

While I'm ecstatic that I'm shrinking!!!! It does leave a closet pretty empty! Not a bad problem to have, however! : )

I'm finding myself with a huge grin as I write this. I feel so blasted successful!

That is awesome Change4Life! Keep up the great job.

I'm exhausted. Mentally and physically. My mind has been through the wringer these last few weeks worrying about having to move. Well, we have made some decisions and have decided to accept the rent increase the landlord is asking for. In return, she will pull the house back off the market. I've been looking for rentals and have had no luck. We love where we live and the house itself. In order to keep the same quality house in town we will end up paying the same amount the landlord wants to raise the rent. If we want something in the price we are in now we will end up living 8-10 miles outside of town and end up spending even more money driving back and forth to town multiple times a day for school and work. Plus we already know how much this one costs to heat/cool and who really wants to move out of a perfectly good house? So we should be good until at least Nov 2013. Maybe by then our old house that is for sale will sell and then we could buy this one or find another for sale.

Physically I am exhausted after getting over strep throat and I'm still fighting a sinus infection. Tonight after dinner the kids and I went for a walk around the small loop in the neighborhood. It is only .7 miles but I decided to jog for some of it. I split it into three walks and three jogs and it has really taken a lot out of me. But I made it and survived. I'll try to do it again tomorrow or Wednesday depending on the weather.

Georgia {{Hugs}} I was just thinking I tried greek yoghurt because of you, am so glad I did it is the yummiest ever (had some at breakfast and lunch).

Zinke - good to see you, Hope you start feeling better soon. Strep throat is such a horrid drain on energy (even once the sore throat part is healed).

Hey girls, need to update my tickers I've gained weight :-| bad. But I'm recomitted to getting it down again. We've started up a biggest loser club at work again a Spring 2012 push until the 25th of june. I feel like I am here again this time this year. I just wish I had the motivation in the past year so I could be a touch smaller in my birthday photos end of the month. Ah well. Maybe next year.
