Default Low K setback

I'm having to rethink my goal weight for Jan 1st
Still recovering from a serious K deficiency which has put me behind my target weight for Oct. Muscle fatigue has prevented my weekly swims and cycling.
Since I have been loosing 3lbs/month I'm reseting my goal to 156 which means 3lbs for Nov and 3lbs for Dec.
So looking fwd to my physical at the end of October to check my electrolytes

I know I'm late to the party but hope y'all don't mind me joining you. It's almost deathly quiet over at the October daily weigh in thread and I've been wondering where everybody went. Ken, next time you decide to "move the party," how about giving me a personal heads-up? That is, unless you're TRYING to lose me!

The Halloween candy is now in the house. Did that alone cause my 2 pound gain? Maybe my body remembers how it used to be. My wife would always be sure to buy extra bags of candy, 'cause once I started dipping into it I couldn't stay out of it. Anyway - it is there on the kitchen table waiting for the kiddies to show up on all hallows eve. Now I'm just waiting on the UPS driver to deliver my 1000 copies of "Why we get fat and what to do about it". One piece of candy + one book. Well, maybe not the book. That would be a nice little object lesson if I could afford to do it. I wonder how well that would fly with the parents?

It would be a great idea...maybe. When I was much heavier, I might have been insulted, though.

I bought the candy three weeks ago, and stuck it up above the frig where it's both easy to forget and hard to reach for 5' 4 1/2" me.

I am in the full swing of planning our belated Canadian Thanksgiving for this Friday and excited about my low carb menu plan, decided to make Pioneer Woman's spicy sweet potato fries as a side treat for myself as a healthier alternative to her creamy mashed potatoes and stuffing. Also planning on making a yummy spinach salad with pears and slivered almonds to replace stuffing. I imagine it will still be a quite decadent day with pumpkin pie and whipped cream, and dinner not starting till 8 pm (we have guests, it's cutural) therefore am doing my best to get as much below my monthly goal as possible to make it so that my blip up the next day will keep me still within my monthly goal... My goal for Oct is 190

I have had Halloween candy in my house for a couple weeks now. It was out of sight and out of mind until the Hubs mentioned on the way to the airport that he broke into the Reese's cups. That got me thinking about them the whole drive home. Just knowing that if I had one it would lead to more was enough to stop me.

I am making my daughter hand out the treats this year.

Renee, my secret weapon is to buy candy I don't really like. If I could get all Kit Kats, it'd be perfect: I detest them.

I overindulged a bit today - but it was an OP alternative to the bucket of Halloween treats. I was unexpectedly tempted by the candy I was handing out. Candy doesn't usually bother me, 'cause I know that I need to stay out of it. But my wife bought the good stuff - some of my old favs. She bought lots of it, too. I will stay strong and let her eat the leftover candy from now until Christmas.

I tricked myself with the candy. Got Kit Kats, which I detest, and PB cups and peanut M&Ms. I figured the M&Ms would go fastest, right?

Wrong. The disgusting Kit Kats are nearly all gone. S'OK. Husband will clear out the remaining M & Ms quickly enough.

I am so glad we don't get trick or treaters!
I made the kids creepy cupcakes. We had our own party.
I made myself a LC chocolate lava mug cake with cream cheese icing. It was super delicious.

Then I got in to the nuts later... But I stayed out of the candy from the kids treat bags they brought home from soccer.

I have nothing else to post, since weight is the same.
