AAAAAAAAACK! (as Bill the Cat would say) PMS is a *****. Two weeks before my period comes I become bloated, *****y, and hungry. Not cravings but hunger, as if I'm ready to rassle a bull with my bare hands for dinner.
Which is why I was thinking of going on the seasonal pill. Gives you a period only four times a year. But, I'm a little paranoid that my PMS will be triple or quadruply worse. Go figure.

I'm the same way - not munchy but I could eat small pieces of furniture if I had too. Ugh. It's a joy, this being a girl business, isn't it?

Hey guys! Just a quick post to give you all some motivation....

I've been using this list for the past two weeks and it has really helped. I've been looking at losing ONLY one pound a week. That is my expectation and I look ahead to see where I'll be. For example:

1 pound down by my Wedding Anniversary
4 pounds down by my camping trip
11 pounds down by Erik's first day of preschool
19 pounds down byt my 31st Birthday
26 pounds down by Christmas
32 pounds down by Valentine's Day 2005
42 pounds down by Erik's 4th Birthday
54 pounds down by our 5th Wedding Anniversary Dive Trip and in ONEderland!
72 pounds lost by my 32nd Birthday
80 pounds lost and at GOAL by January 1st, 2006

Taking things one pound at a time really helped me see how easy it could be, and how silly it is for me to get disappointed if I ONLY lose one pound. Now I get excited! And if it's MORE than one pound, then I am delighted! And if it's ONE pound, I'm thrilled.

Okay. It's been decided. I am no longer going to put my losses on my signature because I lose 5 and gain 3 then lose another 2, and it's driving me nuts. So I've decided to put my start weight (and I hope to keep that the same), my goal weight, and when I reach my goal.

I totally get that. I have bobbled up and down around the same 1.5 pounds for weeks now. Just changing the numbers makes me feel like an ***. Ugh. I've got to sort out my sig.

IMMEDIATE RESPONSE REQUIRED! HELP!

I'm considering going on the South Beach Diet and I'm probably going to "dive" into it tomorrow. What do you all think about it for long term maintenance?

I'm concerned because I don't want to do a week or so and then give up and gain double weight back.

Let me know how you feel about this ASAP because I have been known to make rash decisions.

Love,
Raff

It seems relatively sound to me Raff. I haven't seen all the details on the maintenance phase, but I think it would work for someone that needs no temptation at first, and the slowly ads back in things that work for her.

My $0.02.

Default Day 2 of South Beach

I've just finished my second day of South Beach and can't wait for these 2 weeks to go by so I can have a cup of cereal. I need something that sticks to my ribs!

Whoever said protein fills you up was full of it because I am staaaaaaaaaaaaaarving.

Ok, stupid question allert - you did read the book, right?

Ok, now that's out of the way...protein is usually really filling. Maybe you need to just eat more?

Haven't read South Beach but from what I can tell, it's like starting Atkins several weeks in - mostly whole foods. Which is always ALWAYS a good idea. So good luck!

I'm still floundering at 240...240...240. I am totally stuck!

Brandy - You must know me very well. It is like me to start a diet without reading the book but, I ACTUALLY read the book from cover to cover.

I've been filling up on a lot of cheese, hummus, cold-cuts, fish and buffalo. Yes, that's correct - buffalo.

I did lose 5.5lbs in 4 days so it must be working.

Are you still doing WW?

I swear I posted to this! Where is it??? Congrats AGAIn on your 5.5. Even I would consider eating buffalo for 5.5 in 4 days.

Mark and I have been WWing together since last Sat. He's had like 35 - 37 points every day, I have like 15 Flex leftover - more than I've EVER had leftover. He's lost 4 or 5 pounds, I'm still bouncing up and down 240 - 241. ACK!!! Oh well, when I get past this, maybe I'll have that woosh! that comes after a stall. Cross your fingers for me.

Good diet vibest to all - come check in!

Brandy - have you spoken to your meeting rep about this? Maybe they could help you figure out why your staying the same. I remember from WW that if you stay under your points or don't use your flexpoints you won't lose. Maybe that's it?

I was very dizzy today because I didn't eat enough. So I passed out on the bed at 5pm and woke up at 9:30 and had some dinner. This is my problem, I'm not "jazzed" about animal protein and veggies so I don't eat enough of them. I have got to start balancing my food otherwise I won't lose and will pass out!

Raff - I need to make some changes because you know, you get used to one thing, your body gets wise to you. I have a really bad habit of getting in a food rut and having the exact same thing or things for days on end. Sometimes weeks. I have also been neglecting the dairy big time and living on small quantites of thai peanut noodles (read: little salt bombs, my habit of the moment. No kidding, my journal for days at time looks like - peanut noodles, peanut noodles, strawberry bubble smoothie, peanut noodles). So while it's irritating to be stuck, it's also probably - now that I've looked at my journals - not the mystery I thought it was.

Now as to you - if you're not into animal protein (I'm not either, I can't remember the last time I had actual meat of any kind) and veggies, does SB give some kind of veggie alternative? Have you tried any of the soy products? I LOVE the Morningstar Farms products! Everything we've tried has been really good. Except the bacon and frankly, we were idiots to try that. I mean, you can look at the picture and tell even my dog wouldn't be fooled by that. It looked like bacon shaped gum. Hee.

So, you - eat! No passing out!

Me - lay off the peanut noodles! No more sodium bombs!

Everyone else - post! No more leaving us hanging!
