Jacob,
There is another forum "The Triple Digits Club" where people who want to lose 100 pounds gather to discuss our special issues.

Before I reached 360 lbs, like Mark, I used to weigh on a 1000 lb shipping scale at work. I hear from some doctors that there are now medical type scales that can add counter weights so you can weigh on a normal scale. You might browse the internet for one.

You are not the biggest person on the forum, maybe just the best

We were in Russia last year to adopt our daughter Katerina. Kemerovo is in eastern Siberia near Tomsk and Novosibirsk. We loved Moscow as well. I traveled to Russia at 370 pounds, so maybe that trip might not be far off for you

If you visit my journal, it might explain some of the diet method and how to live with it long term. Unlike some others, I take a "simpler is better" approach to dieting. You may find it works great for you.

Hello, Jacob!

Sorry that I wasn't able to get to your post sooner, but I was away from the forum for a few days...

I'm so happy that you have found the fourm and that you're ready to give LCing a chance. I'll tell you, it has changed and saved my life. 9 months ago I was so unhealthy, uncomfortable and in so much pain I didn't know what to do...until I made the decision to try LCing (Atkins).

I want to reitterate the invitation to join us in the Triple Digits Club, where people with 100+ lbs to lose discuss all sorts of issues. I also invite you to visit my journal (and start one of your own!) as well as those of the folks who have been following your posts so far.

Like szar, I also take Atkins Basic #3, Essential Oils with CLA, potasium, glucosamine and chondroitin, chromium picolinate and probably a few other supplements as well.

I hope your LC journey will be as sucessful as mine and others has been. I'm down more than 90lbs and I feel great!

Keep in touch!

Donald

Jacob,

On scales, a couple options, as suggested find someone in your area that does shipping, especially cartons, might try a moving company. Ask to use their scale once a week. Second, if you can afford $200, Siltec makes a digital scale with and without a tower arm. I got the one without the tower arm, I use my toe to turn it off on on, this scale about $20 less than the tower version. Scale goes to 500lbs.
PS500L - 500lb digital scale no tower arm
PS5AP - 500lb digital scale w/tower arm

Here is a link to a site that offers about the best price and free shipping in the US.

Siltec 500 pound digital scale

Vitamin Supplements
I recommend Absolute Nutrion Dieters Multi and EAS Structured EFA. netrition.com has some decent prices.

Regards,
Lux

Default Thanks a lot!

Dear friends,
you are wonderfull, I got answer for all my ?? just in 2 days!
I was terribly foolish when I started, I thought that I need just
cut off carbs and I'll melt, sorry for that.
Now, I know what I should do:
1. Find some scale around;
2. Order vitamins;
3. reorganize my food stracture ( I tell you true :
I fell very strong internal resistance to increase quantity of fat
and of food. I'm so long live in conditions of internal limitation of food and attempts to avoid all parties and even family dinners... You know it too..
Today my decreasing appitite not agree ...)
4 Start journal, may be it helps with p.3.

And one small thing - find job, althrough I think, I may pass only
non face -to -face interview. Of cource, EOE is EOE, but who
will hire man-like-mountine...

Thanks again, you give me a HOPE.

JACOB450

P.S. Dear SHARK01, thank you for your tremandous action,
I hope your girl is healthy and happy, Cemerowo not a very good place for living, a lot of pollutions, but not a very bad. How old is she? Did she remember Russian?

Jacob,
We adopted Katie at 15 months old, so unfortunately she doesn't remember anything about Russia. She is two now. She is surrounded by the souveniers we bought in Russia, and we will teach her about her wonderful heritage. Here is our princess:

Dear Shark, your princess are beautiful!

I must say you that your action rescues one more little life and made one more child happy. Believe me, I know what I said. I left Russia from position of chief of the Computer Center for one of the biggest Moscow’s hospital. Elderly seek people and children w/out parents are most Non-defended in Russia. Not because the people in Russia very bad, no, very simple – State has not enough money and resources for not-profit people.
I know, a lot of Americans have adopted children from different countries and the State must to be proud of that.

With deepest regards, Jacob

Jacob,
The Russian people are wonderful, it is just a trying time....that's why there are 800,000 children like Katie in the childcare system As soon as we can afford it, we plan to adopt another Russian angel

How are you doing on the diet so far? Just make it simple......just replace all the sugar, bread, potatoes, and pasta you eat with meat and vegtables.

OK, one last picture of Katie in her Russian dress taken this time last year (we just made new photos of her in the same dress this weekend).

Shark,
wonderful pictute, but it's looks like Ukranian dress.
By the way, in the Huston exists a big Russian speaking comunity.

I exluded all mentioned product at least 1 -1,5 month ago,
I'm 'officially' on LC from 08/18. As today I can not see
visual changes, it's unestandable.
I feel good, I'm in the beginning of ketosis and my appetite
decreased very mach. From yesterday I increased quantity of water, but not enough yet, today I'll increase fat.
I'm very toleranted to food stile and do not need change dishes very often, I able to eat the same simple dishes day by day w/out problem.

Have a nice day!

Wow Mark...you should be so proud of yourself..I have read atkins..but manu people have told me to look into the power plan due to all the exercise i do...so now i have to get ANOTHER book to read. I do still drink diet coke, but am cutitng it down to 1 a day. I have the low carb yogurt for a treat in the am and pm. I try to keep my calories between 2100 and 2500 and carbs between 17 and 20.
I have to admit this is so confusing and it will be a learning experience..all I know is low calorie and low fat just makes me hungry..and i think the low carb way is for me to go. I have not experienced a major weight loss in the last 5 days..between 4-6 pounds....which i am sure is just water...
ANy advice you can give me is appreciated,,
