Sorry no individuals today, Iím on my phone and itís hard with the format.

Big chatty ramble ahead

Being a tall person and in the beginning of weight loss, 18lbs is ďquickĒ and really doesnít make much of a dent in terms of appearance, which sucks. Last time I lost a bunch of weight, it wasnít until I got at the high 180ís that there was a visible change.

Anyway, the last leg of the week looked like: as expected, Iím not feeling well now. Not as bad as the kids were but still not awesome.
Went out to dinner and stayed keto and didnít eat much, but because I donít have a calorie count for the foods Iím guessing that I probably surpassed my 1200 by a few hundred and thatís ok.

Iím on day 43 of <10g carbs a day, self 5! This is both the easiest and hardest thing Iíve done. Easy because Iím not hungry at a deficit, hard mentally because itís so limited. Eggs, cheese, chicken, spinach. Lather rinse repeat. Everyone had birthday cake last night, I just got to smell it There were mashed potatoes and glazed meats...drool. Someday soon I might get a bite of those again. For now, it is what it is.

Off to do a big clean of the house, that should get some exercise in. Our home is 4000sqft/5.5bath, no carpets. It takes hours to clean and with 2 long hair cats and one of my kids being the grossest kid on the planet, it needs a lot of elbow grease

Hi everyone

I am new here, and joined because I wanted to have some level of accountability out in the universe.

I have been up and down in terms of weight for a while - I lose weight, then I let old habits fly and I end up back at square one.

However, I was dx with Coeliac Disease last month, and while this wasn't great news, it takes away most of the foods that I turned to when I was 'bored' of healthy eating previously, takeaway and/or eating out. I am now 4 weeks on GF diet (and fresh, healthy eating), and I have already lost 4kgs (8.8lbs).

My beginning weight was 90.2kg (198.9lbs) and goal weight is 70kg (154.2lbs) - my current weight is 86.2 (190lbs). I am a bridesmaid for a wedding in two months, and I'd like to get as close to my goal as possible (I realise my goal is unattainable in 9 weeks).

Today has probably been my worst day so far over the past 4 weeks (hence searching for accountability!) as I was at a party, although not being able to eat the cakes, pastries and sausage rolls, it could have been a lot worse.. I don't do a lot of exercise (I used to do more), but I hope to turn this around now I have been doing better on the diet side of things.

Thanks for having me, and I look forward to finding encouragement in your own journeys.

M

Good Morning, Everyone!

I needed to get up an hour earlier this morning and I didn't get enough sleep. The dinner last night was in moderation and within my calorie range but the sodium got me. I even prepared it myself. It's so frustrating. Keep Marching forward, though. That's for you, Nancylmrn.

Last night: Basic stretches
This morning: Oxycise

Calories for yesterday: 1455 +
Weigh In: 195.6
Up: .8

Have a Blessed day!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

March 1

Romans 5:3

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience.

The growl of his stomach sounded like a ferocious beast. He felt light-headed and nervous. He kept telling himself that he couldn't really be hungry; it was just his imagination. The gnawing hunger would not abate. Before long he just felt like crying. As much as he wanted to lose weight, he just couldn't face the beast that growled in his midsection. In disgust, he pushed away from his desk and headed out to eat. A hard part of dieting is showing our stomach who is boss. When our stomachs rule, we lose. Turn to the Lord when weakness sets in. He will see us through.

Today's thought: I'm not letting my stomach push me around anymore!

Default Good morning

Teri, what a blissful scenario of you and your cats! I know exactly what you mean. In Heaven, I plan to spend a lot of time like that with ALL my cats .

Nancy

Pixel, Good for you to get your house clean! Sounds like a huge job with lots of exercise. Hang in there, kiddo. Your 18# down is a definite victory.

Mikayla Sounds like you're starting out really well. Awesome on your 8.9# loss. We look forward to having you share your journey alongside us .


Yesterday, I took in 1270 calories. I weighed in at 154. Down half a pound. I'll take it! Today I plan to go off the plan for part of the day because of dinner at my mother-in-law's, but will still aim for around 1200 calories intake.

Today's plan: 1200 calories, 2 liters water, fiber, veggies, calcium.

Hi everyone, no time to chat but weekly average 70.4, phew no gain.

Have just eaten a whole family bag of tortilla chips with melted cheese but in my defense tomorrow I have to start running every morning which means...4.30am starts. Yup. Fun :-)

(Diana...keep marching on! Love it!!!)

Good Morning!


Thanks (again) Diana for restarting the thread. It means a great deal to me.

Rachel: I believe that Joseph Campbell once said that "where you find love is where you find God". I feel that way about my cats. Right now one of my cats is gaining wt. and the other is losing wt. I need to figure out what to do about it...

Welcome Mikaela: Hope you have a lot of success here....

Nancy: I share your frustration regarding wt. loss...

Pixel: When I was young, I had a small apt. and 2 long haired cats...and had to vacuum everyday...you can imagine the hair when I did not vacuum for a week...


WELL...2 months ago, I lost 5 lbs. This past month I gained 3 lbs... Oooh. I don't like that. But I still have good news. It is much easier walking downstairs. It is much easier biking. And part of the time my resistance is higher on the bike. And I am using 5 pound wts. on my ankles for knee exercises and that is much easier. And sometimes I use both a 5 lb and 3 lb wt. is each hand when wt. lifting.


Yesterday, I took a day off. I did not exercise. I ate a double serving of cookies, a small sundae, and a jr. frostie. It was not one of my better days...but it could have been a lot worse. When I was at the grocery store, I looked at the pastries and the ice cream, but I passed on them. This am, I biked and wt. lifted...


I need to think about willingness every day...what I am willing to do, to lose the wt. I think maybe if I give up sweets 2 or 3 days a week, the weight will come off. (I think I have said this before...)
