Woo-hoooooo! I lost 3 pounds! :D

I exercised three days, and dieted very low carb all five, kept it between 20 and 25 carbs. Also, for you low-carbers, this week for the first time I used the strips to try to get into ketosis ... and I can tell you, it works!

Okay, guys, onward and downward 'til next Friday!

That's okay, Middie. Focus on the workout, and not on the cookie.

As a world's expert on false starts/no-starts, I can tell ya that getting the groove started is the hardest thing in the world. As Scarlett (and PD) said, tomorrow is another day.


Hugs, Cats

Thanks a bunch for the support. I suppose I am getting a little frustrated because the 40 lbs. I lost over the summer seemed to be not that hard. Now I feel like I have hit a wall and not going anywhere. I think it is due to getting less exercise. In the summer I am walking my butt off in the woods 5 days a week, 10 hours a day. I also think a need to make another change to my eating habits. I know I will lose more weight it is just not coming off as fast as I would like it. :roll:

Congratulations to all of you who have lost weight.

CONGRATULATIONS to all of you who have NOT lost weight but have not given up.

Remember this:

It is possible to lose up to 14 pounds in three weeks. NONE OF IT is bio mass. It is ALL fluid. You WILL look sharper, and thiner. IT IS A MIRRAGE. Real loss of bio mass does not start UNTIL this process is over. You will then lose weight at between 1 to 2 (IF YOU ARE GROSSLY OBESE) pounds a week.

ALWAYS weigh yourself at the same time of day, under identical conditions. I always do it after I have had breakfast, a bath, evacuated my bowells, completement nu. Because if you think about it, an extra cup of coffee, or faeces, etc. can put your weight up enough to let the scales TELL you that you have not lost/have put on weight, when in FACT the opposite is the case.

But it can be VERRY depressing. So DO NOT get excited about one weeks results. You are in fact looking for MINUTE alterations in your body weight.

For some of you, this biomass weight loss will be equivalent to 0.6 % of your weight.

Think how many things can screw up such a delicate measurement.

I would reccomend that you do not weigh in more than once every TWO weeks. The ability for the scales and your body to tell lies are infinite. And if it is REALLY important for you to loose weight , you do NOT need liars telling you that your efforts are worthless.

YOU MUST take a long term aproach to this, because REAL weight loss is a long tem affair.

I hope this is some help, to at least some of you out there.

And remeber this:

It is better to feel hungry and healthy, than full and dead.

Things will get better Middie. We're all behind you. :)

We have gone on a major tostada and burrito kick this week (we had tostadas (my favorite!) 3 nights and burritos 2!), which hasn't helped me get any closer to my goal! At least they were home made, so there were a lot of veggies in comparison with the meat and beans, but still not the best thing to eat every night!

:) Barbara

The good news: 70 miles so far on my exercise bike this week. !!!

The bad news: I found a package of chocolate fudge in the freezer. I'm sure all that bike riding did no good.
