Hi everyone,
Thank you for the warm welcome. Itís nice to see that all of you are doing so well. I hope to join your ranks diet-wise and stay motivated. At this point in my life (old), I find it extremely difficult to lose. I can stick to the diet, but in a monthís time, I lost one pound. Iím trying to convince myself to look at the bright side Ė at least, I didnít gain, and a pound lost is still a pound gone.
Sitting at the computer is a no-no for me and posting is not a regular thing for me, but I do like to tune in now and then, and I will always support your WOE and your losses. Itís so good to see so many folks still benefitting from Dr. Aís wonderful advice. Until next time,
Sherri

Well crap, my post disappeared...starting over!


Another hot day today so Iíve been hibernating all day. Getting some housework & cooking done plus listening to postcasts as I get things done.


We always take supplies and coolers on car trips, but usually not when flying ( except for my coffee). Just seems easier to pick up supplies once I get there!


Sherri, have you been LC since 2010 without breaks? Some of us here are also grandmas & Iím also retired. What area of CA are you in? I grew up in CA.


Good to see everyone who is posting here! Have a great weekend all

Hi All

Paulette, you must be busy growing your veggies and herbs in the short northern summer season. Probably soaking in your pool too . Miss ya!

Wow, Delaney, soooo hot hot hot there. Yikes 106. Hibernation is a good plan...like we do in winter in the north.

What is the brand of jalapeno relish you use, Berni? I found dill relish but not jalapeno at my store. It sounds really good!

Sherri, a pound a month is much better than gaining!!

Yes Jo, I get extra pay for OT. Extra stress too. But I do what I can. I know it will take your level of persistence (stubborness) for me too, to not regain. Although I never eat carbs, I just plain eat too much if I lift my eyes from focus. Stress makes me hungry

Not sure if I mentioned I am back to weighing once a month. Daily has never worked for me. I'd like to shift these pounds that crept back and find maintenance!

Thanks for being here everyone!

Hi friends!

OMG...get this. My DH bought a book and decided to go Keto, now he thinks he has the keto flu. He keeps saying heís not hungry, then I fix myself something and suddenly he wants it too. this is going to be fun! Not. It wouldn't be so bad except he doesnít help with cooking or cleaning, except on a rare occasion. Iím annoyed.


Hi Amy, like you I donít like weighing myself every day. I weigh once a week or so.


We can get jalapeŮo relish at Albertsons. Itís next to the dill relish. You can make your own from the slices too. Thatís what Iíve been doing since we have a large jar of sliced jalapeŮos.


Thanks for reading about my rant today. Have a good one all

Happy Sunday, Ladies!

Hope this finds everyone doing well on this spectacular day!

Sherri:
Imma almost 60, so I'd put myself in the "old" category as well! Well, I DON'T feel or act old...

If you wanna share what you're eating, maybe we can figure out why you're not losing as quickly as you like. Also, if you're on meds, some can definitely affect weight-loss, as you probably already know.

And you're absolutely correct losing a pound is better than gaining!

Amy:
I make my own jalapeŮo relish too. I buy the super size jar of La Costena sliced jalapeŮos (64 oz) at Wally World for like less than $4.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/La-Coste...-64-Oz/10309325

I drain it; save the jalapeŮo juice for my salad dressing and put it thru the food processor in small batches. I put it in the friggie in small plastic mayo jars I've saved... It's amazing in tuna salad, etc!

I completely understand why you don't weigh but once a month, it can be so stressful.

I've always been a daily weigh-er and still am.

I've never let the scale dictate my mood/emotions whatever, b/c I KNOW/KNEW I was doing everything under my CONTROL to affect my weight and improve my health, KWIM?

De:
No worries about your "rant"! THIS is totally a RANT zone!

Sorry to hear your RDH doesn't cook or help around the house... my ex-husband was like that, enuff said!

BUT, that's awesome that he is going Keto...sorry to hear he has the keto flu. Hope he gets over that quickly!

Me:
Keeping myself busy with guitar playing, sewing and I finished that baby afghan. Dets and pics are in my journal!

Still rockin' and rollin' all aspects of my WOE/WOL! No complaints, no issues, no cravings & no temptations! Totally 💚 love this!

Onward, my LC Friends!

Thanks for tips on jalapeno relish. I found some at a different store but it had 4 carbs per serving so I will try making my own. Thank you for directions!

Husbands are funny people. (Funny as in very frustrating at times!) Mine thinks he goes keto and eats my bacon or something but then treats himself to something carby (like beer) later in the day. Not how it works! He has never been fat like me though. I don't think everyone needs to be keto but I need to be.

It is looking like another busy week. My plan is to follow my buddies' examples here and be prepared each day!

Have a great afternoon!

Hello Everybody!

I know I haven't been around for a while, but I had good reason. My boyfriend had to be admitted to the hospital for heart problems, then my Aunt hurt her ankle and I was spending time going back and forth! It has been hectic, but Ed is OK and back home. I took the last couple days off just to relax and get some me-time in. Lounging by my pool, taking care of my flowers, stuff like that.

(I only have a little 12' x 32" inflatable pool which I float around in)

I am trying to get back into my rhythm. Seems like my whole sleep schedule and eating schedules have been disrupted. But I have been on plan and even managed to go down 1.2 lbs since I last logged on! So now I only have 17.6 lbs to goal! At least that is a ray of sunshine around here.

I went back and read the last few pages of posts to try and catch up on what you all are up to! And I apologizes for not addressing any directly, but you were all on my mind.

Ed and I will be going out to meet a couple friends at our local bar in a few minutes. I bring my own water seasoning with me. I have been grooving on the A&W flavor lately! I get it at Dollar Tree. I have not been drinking at all for a long time now. And I like my root beer flavored water.

I hope to get back on here regularly again. I prefer my old routine. Too much stress lately.

You all have a great day!

Hi everybody,

To answer the question, about my history, I started in 2010. I had gained a lot of weight largely due to predisone for 16 years and an insatiable appetite. In 2010, I had finally been weaned away from predisone. Between 2010 and 2011, I lost 45-50 pounds. I maintained that until 2015 when the pounds started to creep up because I had not kept on track with my WOE. I lapsed into ice cream and the like and gradually kept gaining and putting off getting back to business. So for the past 3 years, I have been sabotaging myself and spoiling a lot of what I had accomplished. Now here we are in 2018, and I really need to be serious about losing 15 pounds.

I have been quite strict for a month now, but the weight doesnít budge much Ė only one pound. My plan is to stick with it and something breaks Ė I hope. Thank you for being interested and encouraging.

Sherri
ps: I am in Southern California.

Oh my goodness, Paulette, I am sorry to hear about Ed's heart and also your aunt's ankle. Glad they are doing better and that you are also taking care of yourself! kutgw!

Sherri --sticking with it -- me too. That is the only way to get there. That elusive maintenance will be conquered. (I hope.)
