OK just started a low carb diet today i'm already going crazy, also my stomach and ribs hurt from doing crunches and leg lifts to get rid of my gut. I'm determined to lose weight though. My goal is 25 lbs, but i'll be happy if I lose 20.

Nice work Mikki! I've been doing semi low-carb and it's working very well. No sugar, grains, bread and I even gave up my beloved steel cut oats for a while!

I'm skinny as a snake. Don't have to try losing, it just falls off.

So far so good on the low-alcohol diet.... 8 lbs in 12 days?
It seems a little off to me, either my scale was screwed up, or I had really heavy jeans on, or the PMS bloat was still with me. Or a combo of all of it.

Sorry, didn't mean to rub it in, but sometimes being skinny isn't good. I'd rather have a little good fat. You know, body.

Suz, some of it was water weight. It also happens when you stop eating heavy carb foods, our body drops some of the ww it was holding.

Now to move on to actually fat loss! I'll be doing a 5 mile walk today and more packing...good calorie burner!

Hows everyone doing then? I had wine and pasta and dessert on Saturday and man was I all bloated on Sunday! Just now starting to feel better. Blah!

Back to my usual salads and 2+liters of water per day.

I was sorta thrown off this weekend food-wise, had some family gatherings, but we did a ton of yard work so it was probably a wash. Stuck in the house all day yesterday due to rain, and didn't pig out. yay me! :)
