Good morning Gang of Warriors...

I haven't been feeling well this week, but am finally starting to feel better. Haven't eaten much this week, that's always a bonus!

Karen, if you're thinking of a new car Honda and Subaru are great. We love both of ours! We have a Honda Pilot and a Subaru Legacy and they have both been great vehicles.

Jo I see you are busy with school and being creative! WTG!


Bernie...fun with cousins, that's so awesome!


Take care all...

Happy Last Week of September, WARRIORS!

Wishing each of you a totally marvelous Monday in every single way possible!

Stay WARRIOR Strong!

Wow 3 months until Christmas, Holy Hannah!!!!

My Weekly Maintenance Update: 3 years, 7 months, 1 week and counting...

Wt = 114 lbs!

How to become successful at this LC WOE? Surround yourself with people who are successfully following the LC WOE you are doing! That's why we have this thread!

It doesn’t pay to surround yourself with people that enable your poor eating behaviors by constantly telling you, “it’s okay, just wipe yourself off and move on” each and every time you eat off plan.

The only reason why I think they do that is because they too have fallen time and time again and allowed their “fat carb creatures” to rule their world and ruin their chance, at least for that day, to eat successfully on plan. Because I’ve been there and done that myself. I have fallen off the LC WOE wagon too many times to count, wiped myself off and continued 100s upon 100s of times (decades worth of yo-yo dieting)!

Yeah, I have been there too where I tell peeps to wipe themselves off and move on. Honestly that’s not what I want to say, but to say what I really mean to say could easily get me banned from these threads because my post would be considered “un-supportive and not encouraging”.

It’s really really hard to watch people self-destruct in front of your very eyes without wanting to say something! I don’t dare say anything that would be “unsupportive and not encouraging” so I say nothing at all. I get that this is a support group and I LOVE being here and hanging out with people who truly understand where I’m coming from.

There are so many experienced, supportive and very knowledgeable people on this site who have been very successful at not only losing the weight but keeping it off too, some for decades. I love to read their journals and posts!

We are never QUITTERS when it comes to “trying” to lose the weight because we all want to be LOSERS and graduate to Maintainers (our ultimate goal)!

I’m not saying it’s EASY. Nothing in life worth having is EVER easy. But to surround oneself with people that booster ones’ ego because it’s the polite and the nice thing to do isn’t healthy and no good can ever come from enablers.

Especially since they are in reality continually giving you permission to continue your poor eating behavior (not on purpose) without helping you figure out why you’ve fallen off the wagon in the first place. That would be more supportive and more helpful in my way of thinking.

Seriously, it’s okay if you’ve fallen off the LC WOE wagon! But one day you have got to come to grips with whatever it is that makes you succumb to your “fat carb creature” or you will always be “trying” to lose the weight instead of “actually” losing the weight to keep it off.

Ramblin' over...

Had a great Sunday! Accomplished all my pesky w/e chores early so that I got a chance to design and start knitting a baby sweater. It's probably close to 1/3 finished. Like I said, they knit up very fast!

Today is our last Parent Teacher Conference for the Fall. We do another round in the Spring. Usually for those bobble heads that are still not being successful even with every extra opportunity we provide... Sometimes we WORK harder than that student... KWIM??? Anyhoo...

My journey to better HEALTH continues...

Carb-Free Food for Thought:

Accountability breeds RESPONSE-ability!
~ Stephen Covey

This is the quote I use on my PPW Posts b/c I truly believe that being accountable makes me more responsible and successful!

Onward and DOWNWARD, WARRIORS! We've GOT THIS! Woot! Woot!

3500 Ram Dodge Mega Cab with 6.7 Diesel in Maximum Steel color. Thing is a brute lol but rides so darn nice, like a friggin' luxury car. Has it all, backup cameras, navigation in it, and every other bell and whistle so at this point his is technology updated in his car. HA

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Endeaver SUV with 107K miles and now I am looking at a Nissan Pathfinder. He keeps saying at 107 I should think now about getting a new one and I want to just keep the old but lately it is making 'a noise' and he is saying if we trade now we will get at least 3-4K for it....yea nothing, I checked but if it has to have work done (and he is worried big work is coming?), that is money into it and then it still won't be worth more....blah blah blah and he is pushing me into a new vehicle situation. We shall see tho. I will start to look around and if the 'big deal' is out there I might do it.
I can see both sides of the conversation... it's not easy to decide what to do... hope you find a "big deal" so that you can get a new vehicle if that's what you want! Hey they are moving the 2017s to bring in the 2018s... so you might just get that "big deal"!!!

Hiya Joe!

Same as it is now... I strictly follow A '72 Induction and only eat one time a day.

I eat 5 grams of carbs and around 1000 kcals daily. Dr. A said this in A '72 Diet Revolution | page 263 and this time around I took it to heart. I know that's why I've been über successful:
Quote:
The best decision is probably to stay pretty much on the very low carbohydrate diet on which you lost; only now you can feel free to deviate in small ways.
But I've never deviated b/c I like the results I have, love the wonderful "real foods" I get to eat. And food doesn't have the "entertainment" value it used to have when I was "Fat Jo".

Wishing you much success on your personal journey to better HEALTH, joe!

I SO HEAR YOU ON THIS SORE SUBJECT!!!!!!

If you say the truth and not 'sugary fluff coat it' you are being argumentative and not supportive and good chance your butt will get banned!

That is why I stopped reading journals or any other threads on low carb sites. Done deal. I can't stand it anymore....and while I was one of those who never quit at trying, I never was told the truth of what it takes to make it truly in this big change. Sure some can change to lc and do fine and wonderful but so many flounder as I did! Never getting it right. Never finding that truth to what it will take to make it work and be free from food addiction.

I just do the Warrior thread and my other friend's thread.......but to fly around this entire site and read and not be able to post the truth, nope ain't doing it anymore!

I say all the time thank heavens for this thread cause we tell it like it is! Something that is invaluable to me

just my rant on it all HA

Have a marvelous Monday and take care of yourself!

I still read 'em, I just don't respond. More often then not, I wanna shake the person and say: We totally CONTROL what we eat... no one has a gun to our heads... in order to be successful, STOP the cycle of On Plan than OFF Plan eating b/c it's like being in a hamster wheel. Always gaining/losing the same lbs over and over again. B/c I've been there and done that TOO!

I think you finally figure it out, girlie!

I also think too, that peeps gotta realize what works for ONE person might NOT necessarily work for them....

Another thing I've noticed is that peeps are so easily discouraged if they don't see consistent weight loss. Which always brings me back to what CMCM (Carole) has on her siggy line:

Time (patience) + Consistency (OP 100%) = SUCCESS

Which truly is the mathematical formula for Success, IMHO!
