Hey All!
Looks to me like we have some new members... course, with the shape I'm in with internet you might not be. However, I don't remember welcoming: tarsansia, Angie Girl,cakebaker,gingerbellgonzalez or RenoBeno so, here's a big "Howdy Ya'll" to the new guys.


RACHEL
It's great to see you! I thought perhaps you had thrown us over for the new job and home Smile Glad to see you hanging in there with the all the changes you had in your life. Tremendous fortitude you have to have held on through all those changes! Even positive changes can have a negative impact on your WOE. Good job, and nice to have you back.

LINDA - Is that baby 3 months old already? Doesn't seem possible. I'm so geographically challenged I can't imagine what the climate in Sydney is at this time of the year, but I'm sure anything is beautiful when you're looking in the face of a grandbaby Smile

JAIME I know you can relate to "looking into the face of" .. doesn't have to be a grandbaby, does it Smile I was thinking about you yesterday as my 21 year old daughter and I tried in vain to weigh her luggage for her flight on Thursday. Everything is packed except her carry-on. I just keep forcing my mind away from the fact that my child will be a continent away. France. Until 2014. Oh my GOSH, that's just impossible. I hope she loves her host family.... no, I hope her host family loves HER. Unlike your daughter, I guess mine could just throw in the towel and come home, but I know she won't. She's, she's... I can't think of words to describe this kid. Mine, comes to mind, which of course, makes her perfect, but beyond that, she's a kid that you WANT to spend time with. Bright, articulate, funny, bubbly, extremely outgoing and personable. Helpful, attentive, the friend everyone wants to have. Okay, she has faults too, it's just that this week I can't see them Smile
If anyone on this list is in France I expect you to speak up!

Well, if life hands me any MORE lemons I'll have to plant an orchard, lemonade just isn't going to cut it! Thankfully, I THINK I have salvaged all my information and work off of my computer to an external harddrive. I'm thinking I'm headed for cloud storage for back-up. I can't take much more of this. Internet access is still blocked until Sept 4 (thanks, my angel 21 year old--haha) I feel like I have my hands AND feed tied. Of course, I still haven't settled on what to do about a new computer. I'm waiting until I pay all my tuition and fees and school supply additions for the kids before I decide how much, if anything is going to be left... well, something has to be left, I have to work, lol.
My last school age at home kids started school yesterday. You would think that's a good thing, but, for me it isn't. I actually miss them AND hate the school work. School anymore isn't about learning, it's about test scores. Seems to me they just assign work randomly without any forethought to actual learning. I would homeschool them all if it weren't for the lack of social interaction and team sports.
As for my WOE or WOL, both are there. My WOL is absolute chaos, lol, which is how I like it, and thank God I thrive with it like that and so do my kids. My hubby? well, he just hangs on and enjoys the ride Smile We just never depend on him to remember anything. We just make sure he has each days schedule and text him reminders and updates throughout the day Smile Gotta love him.
My WOE is spot on. I never miss. I haven't been over 15 net carbs any day since January. Don't intend to be, regardless of how STUCK I am at 6 - 8 pounds to goal. Course, the exercise if off because of the foot, and I guess I could have adjusted the calorie intake to accomodate it, but I'm comfortable in my food choices and I like them. Plus, the exercise will come back... probably within the next week. I KNOW, no matter what, that restricting those net carbs to 12-15 will result in weight loss (providing you're overweight, which I still am) sooner or later. I don't care how long it takes. Don't care what size my clothes are, don't really care how I look (which is evident from the straggly hair and less than fashionable clothing). I DO care what my BP is and i DO care what my cholesterol levels are. I DO care about my overall health, and that is what this is all about.
HEY! I gotta tell a funny story though. Hope I'm not repeating myself. Last week, I go into the store with the kids, no big deal. I KNOW my pants are loose and I've got them rolled down at the waist. Again, no big deal. I'm checking out and lift the baby out of the cart, am holding my money out for the cashier and I feel my pants fall DOWN! DOWN. I'm not talking about slipping, I mean DOWN! I immediately threw my feet apart in an attempt to stop them, but thank heavens for LONG SHIRTS. I would have been baring my big girl panties to the world! Thankfully my 14 year old simpatico child immediately sized up the situation and grabbed the pants before they could hit the ground. I laid the money down and she grabbed the baby, and I grabbed the pants! Needless to say, the next stop was to purchase one pair each of tight fitting shorts and pants. The moral of this story is: no matter whether or not your THINK you're losing, better buy a belt!
Happy Tuesday All. Here's hoping to hear from some of the new guys! (crossing my fingers as I click "post"Wink

It's been a long time since I did Atkins (lost almost 50 lbs and kept it off for 7 years) but I feel like I'm finally settling it, the first week was tough trying to adjust my foods to the right proportions of fat/protein/carbs. This morning I feel great and my diet has been pretty good the past few days. I only have 10 lbs to lose but will be more diligent in not gaining it back. The support in this group is terrific, thanks for the wise words and keeping me motivated!

CarbTracker, your story is hilarious! And congratulations on losing so much weight that you lost your pants!

Take care all and have a great day!

Hello all!

I am back from m anniversary vacation at the casinos. Did pretty well for not being able to log anything. Did not taste or sample any thing that would have put me over in carbs. so, the first week was successful. Walked the boardwalk or hours put in 7 miles on my pedometer but my feet and fingers swelled.

Could I be allergic to coconut oil? something is making my tongue swell up. I haven't had any for the last three days so it's hard to keep up my fat to the right amount without it. My tongue still has teeth marks around the edge, like it's too big for my mouth but it's not as bad. I so hope it's not the coconut oil.

Haven't yet caught up on the posts but I, hope all is well.

Okay, I've been enjoying reading back through the recipes tab and getting all kinds of ideas, unfortunately I'm just cooking for 1 now (the 2 yr old has hit his 2 yr old picky stage) and I'm having a hard time cutting stuff down to where I don't feel like I'm cooking one thing and eating on it allllllllllll week--but I'm getting there. I've been living off of Adkins bars and Meals for breakfast and lunch the past couple of days--I'm sure that can't possibly be helping me in the weight department but at least it's keeping me from eating the "crappy" foods. It's already 9:30 and I'm ready to hop in bed instead of cooking so I guess tomorrow is going to be another meal bar/frozen dinner day. Hopefully this weekend I'll have a chance to go shopping and cook some things to freeze for the week ahead.

I'm really having a hard time finding time to cook these days--up at 5:30 and home at 6pm then feed the boy and time for bed but I'm going to see how I can adjust some things to make it a bit easier. Whipping things up isn't the hard part--it's staying awake long enough for them to cook that's become the challenge LOL.

It's so very good to be back and to read all of the wonderful stories of sucess (and even those with some struggles). Pants falling down in the store and swelling tongues. We are a family of sorts and it's great to be a part.

HAPPY HUMP DAY(tomorrow)
~Rachel~

Morning Everyone!
Carbtracker: LOL You are amazing! You managed to keep it dignified, I would have just died. Never had my pants fall, but i did have my drawers fall during an interview! Thank the Lord I was wearing slacks lol.
Rdrunr: Sorry to hear about the swollen tongue. Hope its not the coconut oil Sad

Things are getting better here, still having a little depression. Might talk to dr next time i see her. Love you guys, Everybody hang in there.

Gina I sure can relate! I know you are going to miss your 'baby'...face it doesn't matter how old they are they will always be our babies...lol. Maybe you need to plan a trip to 'France' Smile You are one busy lady!!! But sounds as if you are handling it all like a pro! I so GLAD that you got a belt!!!!! That is hilarious!!!

berley The good thing is you know what to do to get those 10# off - I am sure they will be gone before you know it.

Rdrunr So glad to hear that you had fun on your trip and stuck to your way of eating. Have you ever tried coconut oil before? If it is not your first time using it in then I would think it wouldn't be the coconut oil. Maybe try a little bit and see how that effects...perhaps half of what you were using. If it is the first time you have ever used it and you are getting that effect and it is the only new thing then I would be concerned that maybe it is a reaction.

RachelSo good to read your post. I do agree that your best bet is some weekend cooking for pre-made meals. A quick one though is some deli meat with some goat cheese or ham wraps with some cheese. Of course, you cannot live off of that. Maybe make some deviled eggs in advance and cover them or egg salad (if you like that). Also to have some tuna salad of chicken salad. I love a couple ounces of chicken salad over some lettuce and a little dressing mixed up in it all to make my salad. I posted a tuna casserole that seems to keep well. I did not freeze it but I did refrigerate it and it was a good left over. Maybe a lower carb spaghetti and meat sauce that you can freeze in portion sizes and lay out to thaw in the morning. You could always slice up a zucchini when you got home and quickly cook it..layer the meat sauce and some mozzarella cheese and the zuchhini and heat it in the microwave for a 'lasagne'. Hmmm I am trying to think...do you have a small crock pot....if so you could put a chicken breast in the morning with a little broth and some a little salsa and in the evening have mexican chicken that you can put on a salad or wrap in a low carb tortilla shell.

Okay that is enough...hopefully that will help you get some new ideas.

As for me I BOMBED yesterday. I worked all day...did not get any exercise in. Took a break and picked DH up at the car garage and took him back to work. Made two stops at the store then came back home to work. Then went and picked DH up from work and I was starving and we stopped at Arby's and I had a sandwich...then came home and worked more. So that means today I have to put in extra exercise and am going to try to do a fat fast to get rid of that stupid sandwich. Which by the way I was hungry again last night (not enough fat I am sure) and I had pork skins and some sour cream. Went over my calories and everything else yesterday. Only 24 days until the wedding and I need to get my a$$ in gear. THEN DH says "do you know what this weekend is??????!!!!" I say, "yes I already know". It is a smorgasbord in the park...they call it Pig Out In the Park and that is what it is. So he will want to go to that but I have made up my mind that I will not be tempted by all that terrible food. If there is nothing there as a good option I will wait.

So after talking to the Dr, and getting that good news a while ago, I've been extremely lax on recording daily food consumption. Even though I KNOW I'm taking in less than 50 gm of carbs daily, my weight loss has stalled. So.... I'm pretty sure the wife and I need to get back on track with daily tracking of the diet. sigh.

I do so much better when I track my food. I think for me it is a key to my success and continued success. Even when I am where I want to be I know I will have to continue tracking and logging.

Good evening everyone!

Rachael - I know I get done work at 6:00 by the time I get home and make something to eat, then pay bills, record here and the time is gone. Sometimes, I just pick at pepperoni and cheese and olives. Other times, I keep bags of frozen fish to I can quickly fry some up with a steam in bag veggie.

I've even went with Jaime's suggestion of weekend cooking and placed food into tupper ware for several days meals. That seems to work the best.

DialUp - Exercise is good for depression, at least that's what I heard but sometimes it's difficult to get going. My thought are with you, try a pamper day, your worth it!

cgg01 - tracking seems to be important for me also. Sometimes I do even better if I input what I am going to eat during the day and even before I eat it because if I wait until the end of the night, I usually eat too much protein or carbs and not enough fat.

CarbTracker - can't wait for my pants to fall off! This story made me lol. Laughing That probably would never happen to me though because every time my pants get big I buy a smaller size to keep me from gaining it back.

Bring this to my day, very busy. Still not using coconut oil but I'll try it again tomorrow because I can't get my fat high enough without it. Been losing slowly but even slowly is good. Very Happy

Hey carby, yes 3months already, a little gorgeous halfi, half Chinese Malaysian, half aussie blonde hair and blue eyes, he is light olive skinned, has dark brown hair and blue eyes... Loved the pants falling down story! I had a good laugh Smile
berley welcome, you can do it!
rdrunr, mmm I have not come across anyone with coconut allergies but you never know... maybe wait for a couple of weeks till things settle down and try it again? I hope you're okay!
dial up hang in there big hugs coming your way!
Jaime you are not alone, I bombed out too, but back on quickly is the key x
cgg, tracking daily is the best way, at least till goal, then you should have it easy-just knowing what and how much to eat to stay at goal, but still track every now and then or we tend to get carb creep Smile

Linda it is hard to believe 3 months aleady! I bet he is such a cute little fella!!!! You are right; back on it right away and working hard to reverse the damages done...blech. I am hopeful that my added exercise will start toning up and I will have positive changes that the scale is not reflecting. I will try my two dresses on again within the next couple of days....LOL. 23 days till the wedding....I need to get a move on!!!!!!!

Jaime, I have not bought a dress yet but will have to get my act together very soon and start seriously looking. This is going to be a Macedonian wedding so it's very dressy!
I hope your dresses look good on you!

I am very in control at the moment food and DRINK wise, I just had a protein shake with an egg whipped into it for breakfast- that's my quicki breakfast for when I have to rush off to work. I made a big salad for lunch with a red char grilled chilli and cheese, the dressing I put separate - vinegar oil and salt Smile

ah well off to work - it's a lovely sunny day here, Sunday is the first day of spring here 1st Sept, it's also fathers day and our 40th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately I have to work!

Linda - Happy Early Anniversary!!!! Congratulations! I got two bike rides in today, but DH doesn't know. I went before he got home and then went with him....lol. I feel in control. My dresses are great for a beach wedding, and it is awesome that I haven't been able to wear them in 5 years. The wedding colors are navy and yellow and the dress that I will wear to the wedding is navy and white with a yellow ribbon and shoulder cover. The dress to the bridal luncheon is a lighter blue with white dots and white piping....fun. I want to find some white wedges instead of heels. The rehearsal dinner is business casual so I am still working on that. Counting the days....we can keep it together Linda!!!!!

Good morning all! It is Friday and a Holiday weekend. I am laying claim to really work hard to stick to plan. DH has already planned getting off early to go to Pig out in the Park and I am already strategizing so I will not slip up. I will not ruin things with this three day weekend!!

It is quiet in here today!!! Okay it is almost 'quittin' time for me. Which means I have to get my exercise in because DH is closing up the office early today. I had a taco salad for lunch with sourcream and guacamole so plenty of fat to help me stay full. 346 calories later and I am so stuffed!!! Hope I can get my exercise in. I may have to stick to walking today and do my C210K tomorrow. I have 'tentatively' planned an Elk burger (no bun) for dinner tonight. Tried my dresses on today and made me feel really good. The one dress is still snug across the back but looks good. Took a picture in the other dress and sent it to DH (he hasn't seen me in them since oh 5 or 6 years) and he thought it looked great. Sent it to my mom...she hasn't seen me since last year (with the exception of a rare Skype every now and then. She said that she showed my stepdad and he said, "damn! That must be some diet she is on!" LOL. Mom said that she told him "not really she just isn't eating breads or processed foods or carbs". I told her yep, it is not a diet it is just a way of life. So this weekend I think I will pick up a pair of Spanx...yes...LOL....mostly for extra tummy control. I am also on the hunt for a white pair of wedges. I will try to check back in!

Hey!
Happy Labor Day!
I am actually on because we are out of town! Nothing worse than no internet. When we get back on Tuesday I'll only have 'til the 4th or 5th to wait for more bandwidth!
Of course, this means no tracking. Lazy me, I could be writing it down, and I SHOULD, as it's really the only way to watch. I've haven't recorded a weigh in today as I have no scale, so I'm going to put yesterday mornings. I am SO stuck at 147 to 149 it's almost funny. Yesterday I was at 148.6, again.
But, the last kid is back in school and my 21 year old has arrived safely in France and is getting settled in and by next week I'll have internet but no computer. GRRRRR still trying to sort out the purchase. I'm muddling with DH's and holding mine together with duct tape and baling wire and rubber bands. Not exactly productive, but heck, I've got no internet so what's the point! This hotel has blazing fast internet, maybe it'll jump start my weight loss LOL. I'm sure the stall is normal. I'm not eating over 20 net carbs.... probably not even eating 15 most days, oh....but the calorie count! I know it's through the roof. Plus, the foot issue has all but stopped the walking, but i''m really going to walk today. I'll either get it done or I'll have to start over, but regardless, I'll be doing something!

JEN - honey, I'm thinking that some depression would be normal, but the Dr certainly needs to know. You're in my prayers.

RDRUN - I'm too much of a tight-wad to buy new clothes one or two sizes smaller. After the embarrassment of losing my shorts I actually found that I needed a pair 4 sizes smaller. Quite a switch to be sure, but even then I only bought two pair. I'm sure with just another 10 pounds I can just take them up, but I'm not chancing it! Your food choices are looking very positive. Hang in there.

LINDA - I know that baby is beautiful! Sept 1 is spring? I'm so challenged. You're spring and we are fall? Father's Day is in June...Argghh just too hard for me to figure out. You better have a plan for that dress. Might not have to buy it today, but you better know what you are going to do! We've been married..... 37 years he said. But only 9 anniversaries. What a cheapskate.

JAIME - A sandwich? really? I turn fifty shades of green when I see bread anymore.. LOL I;ve made eating the middle out of a sandwich into an art form. You can really look uppity when you do it if you try Smile Your dresses sound adorable. I'm a blue jean kinda girl, so if I have to put on a dress it really doesn't sit to well with my boots.... now, a fringed skirt is a different story. And yes, you know, a baby is a baby is a baby. Mine called from France today to check on me Smile Bout gave me a heart attack. Of cours.
e, my west coaster has informed us that she needs a plane ticket home for Xmas...... ah, the joys of parenting!

CGG - yup, write it down. I can't wait to get my issues lined out so that I can post. This is getting ridiculous.

RACHEL - I know for a fact that I could not do this WOE without doing some precooking every week. My biggest staple is boiling a dozen eggs every Sunday night. There are actually weeks that I throw a few out on the next Sunday, but that is rare. You can grab one or two to take to work if you can't think of anything else. You can eat one for breakfast if need be. You can whip up a nice ham, chickenm turkey or just egg salad and use a lettuce leaf to made the greatest wrap, or just scoop it up with pork skins. And just for fun I eat deviled eggs for snacks. Another fantastic treat is Pork Chops and boiled eggs with red-eye gravy. If you don't know redeye it's carb free gravy. My mom used to make it when we were just toddlers. You fry pork chops ( of course, unbreaded, in a little grease) when you remove the chops add 1/2 cup coffee. Of course it doesn't mix, so the coffee forms "red eyes" in the grease. Drizzle that over a few sliced boiled eggs and you'll think you're in heaven. Great fat count on that one too.

Guys, we have 5 or 6 new members in the last 3 days. You might want to give a shout out to Frognduc, Flaca01, Angie Girl, and tarsania .

Oh, by the way, I walked a 5k today in 42 minutes and then swam for an hour. I;m waiting for my foot to fall off ROFL. Here's hoping I'm back in the game........well, the exercise game. I'm having a hard time keeping up with NO computer, but I will prevail!!I hope everyone is as fortunate as I this weekend as I enjoy my lazy holiday. Keep your pants up!

Hi Gina - love your posts! Thanks for the word of encouragement. I think watching that video actually helped me. I am counting all carbs not net carbs and trying to eat what's on induction.

We're expecting more storms and rain so we had our Labor Day picnic today. Everyone showed up with crazy desserts. I knew they would so I made a low carb, sugar free dessert. But considering it was still 10 carbs, I went over my 20 carbs. I should have used jello mix instead of pudding mix.

Tomorrow I will be back to normal. I have noticed I started with a bang 10, 12, 15 carb but lately 20.5 22 and now today 26. Wow! Rolling Eyes

Welcome all the new people, welcome back to some. This group is better than any other that I have found = funny, serious, caring, helpful and encouraging. GREAT!
