    Gentle, that meal sounds goods but no veggies? You know how I am about veggies! That heel pain is sounds like the plantar fascitis that I've been suffering with the last few months. It's a classic symptom that morning pain. Maybe the bowel problems are just a change in diet and will regulate itself soon. Also, you might try probiotics. I'm a fan of Bio-K (listed on the link I'll inclose), it's very expesnsive but it seems to help when things aren't right. I took it when I was on heavy duty antiobitics for MRSA and didn't have a bit of a problems. http://www.deliciousorganics.com/Con...entedfoods.htm

    Otherwise I make sure I eat yogurt or a similar food several times a week.

    Hi Tweety,
    You know, I am avoiding vegetables. Huh, never realized that one before. And I know why . . . used to eat using the Body Ecology Diet. I burned out. Thanks for the feed back, Tweety.

    The kids and I walked to school this morning. Ds2 and I finished our walk, which lasts for about 1hour. Breakfast was cereal and yogurt. Snacks were wheat thins and all bran crackers and almonds. Lunch was not to good, on the go. Snack time was all bran crackers and grapes.

    Time to go. Gotta start dinner . . . yes, with vegetables included.

    Oh yeah, thanks for the hint about the plantar fascitis. I will be reading more about this.

    I am doing Atkins (yes, I know) for a couple of weeks. I am back to my highest weight and I just HAVE to knock some off. I start running - which I miss - and my knees hurts which, guess what, is directly related to the excess 50 - 60 pounds attached to this lard butt!

    So I'm turning ketones sticks maroon amd am already heartly sick of bacon. Just two weeks on this and then to a sounder plan.

    There is literally ONE WW meet a week in this town and they won't accept the special combo on-line discount membership. I am NOT paying $60 a month for it.

    *sigh*

    Don't feel all alone - I just recently finished the induction of Atkins too . . I did 3 weeks. I didn't have any bacon. I did get sick of eggs though.

    I found Atkins protein shakes on sale . . . bought a whole bunch. They have 2 grams of carbs.

    Mixed up tuna and egg salad - I liked that but got tired of it too.

    Lots of salads with chicken and boiled eggs on top.

    I lost 10 pounds.

    I mean the moment when going to the toilet in a hurry becomes my cardio workout with strength training and stretching.
    Yes, that, but I am also referring to the fact that getting in and out of clothes and doing the paperwork can be tough too!

    The other day I was in the BR at church and trying not to audibly breathe hard, trying to get the durn nylons where they belonged! and I'm sure my face was red afterwards from the effort!

    Makes me feel stupid just saying all that. Some is girth but some is conditioning.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I tried on some of my pants yesterday, and for the first time in a LONG time, they were loose!!!!! Have not weighed myself lately, but am pleased with that alone!
    This is nice!

    Quote from muffie
    yeah for diary girl

    muffie is up to 28.5 lbs of yuck gone forever

    woohoo

    carry on good nursey types
    This is nice too! yahoo!

    Started the big P today so I look forward, again, to post waterwt wt. LOL...

    Quote from beck_79
    My goal for the next four weeks: keep up the weight training, add one extra cardio session a week, and stick with the South Beach Diet plan. I'm not going to make a specific weight loss goal because I don't want to set myself up for disappointment. I'd just like to be able to button my pants- not safety pin them closed, lol.
    Seems reasonable!

    Nice to see you! (have we met?)

    Same w/ me w/ the OA and FA food plans - 8 oz of veg and 8 oz of salad for lunch, AND dinner, and after maintenance, a fruit w/ each meal too! I developed biceps in my jaws...

    That ticks me off that it is so expensive. But our dear muffie has had a lot of success w/ it!

    (Atkin's shakes). bought a whole bunch. They have 2 grams of carbs.
    Do you have those instead of a meal?

    I don't get - shakes, bkfst and granola bars, candy, cereal - how they can make them low carb lol - they are sweet!

    Hi Zoe, Tweety, and everyone,

    Did well today. Today was a 5 vegetable serving kinda day. Basically all the meals were healthy. Ds2 and I completed our walk again this morning, which is a great way to start our homeschool day.

    Hurray, ds2 is starting to read. Ds1 is doing well in school. Dh is so very honorable.

    Zoe, I understand whatcha mean.

    Tweety thanks again.

    Jay welcome to the thread and glad you're here.

    Good night everyone.

    hello all,

    Just checkin in.

    Fed the kids cereal for breakfast. I ate an avocado and drank a cup of coffee.

    Ate turkey sandwich with corn and wheat thins. Ds2 had ham sandwich without preservatives and wheat thins. Ds2 had a chocolate chip cookie for desert.

    Homeschool done for the day. Time to cook dinner.

    No time for a walk this morning. Maybe this afternoon/evening.

    looks like even if you are hitting the gym/exercising your little ticker out the wazoo, if you sit a lot, your bod will hang onto fat. more research to follow.
    i just joined ww sat. after thanksgiving - the real face-to-face one. online wasn't cutting it. week one in progress, will keep you posted. am sticking to it, though, and i feel better already. lotsa veggies, doin the core program. not as expensive here, but there is some sort of special going on - $40/month. if it works (has in the past), it's worth it to me.
    joined ww just prior to a trip to the er for a raging case of bacterial conjunctivitis! no pink eye for me, went straight to the nasty stuff. my eyes looked like i was dracula's bride. too bad it wasn't halloween! much better now thanks to drops (sclera and conjunctiva were realllllyyyyy macerated, some periorbital edema too) but i can't wear my contacts quite yet. yes, i tossed the old ones, lens case too, along with all makeup, etc. dh has it too now, a few days behind me. did i think to ask for a script for him while in the er, just in case? of course not. would they give me one now? of course not.
    1.5 weeks 'til holiday break from school! pharm class is going really well. whoulda thunk it - it's never been my favorite topic, but i am liking this class.
    good to catch up - will check in again sooner than later!!!
    :icon_smile:
    ps - it snowed today, 2 inches. that's why i'm shoveling... how much did you get, sarah?

    Nice to see everyone doing so well.

    Good luck Suesquatch!

    Welcome Beck. Best wishes and please keep in touch and let us know how and what you're doing.

    I've been good sticking to the veggie (high carb) diet since Thanksgiving and a couple of pounds are off. Today's a cover dish at work and I'm bringing hot wings, so there goes the diet today.

    Anyone see Ophra yesterday? At the gym I watched a bit while doing cardio. She featured people with massive weight losses, some in excess of 200 lbs. doing it the old fashioned way with diet and exercise.

    No loss or gain for me for the last week. I hope to lose a few between now and Christmas. Wish me luck!

    Hi, everyone!

    Well, I'm down 3 since Saturday.

    Bluehair and Muffie, I've done well with WW, too. That's the plan I intend to start again on my own in a couple of weeks. But you can't get the guides s joining.

    Tweety, I didn't realize the was a Beck. I thought you mis-typed welcome back to me!

    Good luck, Baptized!
