ok only had taco chips, tea anw water til now. so I did not cheat. Now to eat my diet soup and veggies. Hope I do not cheat tonite.

Restless,

The cabbage soup diet is hard on MY stomach, taking Gas-X it helps. Right now my stomach has been really bad before the diet, so will stick with it another day or two.

When I was physically healthier, the cabbage soup did not bother me at all, so it depends on your status of health and how stress bothers you. Mine is my headaches, neck, and GI. This diet may be perfect for you, but do it only one week on and then one week off, alternate the weeks.

Twinks,

I'm glad you got that settled. Ouch, I'm sure.

Can you tell me if that diet would work for insulin resistance? If so, I would be interested to see it, if you don't mind.

Thanks.

I was good tho. Had the steak/chicken skewers w/ a little pasta, no mashed potatoes and gravy, and zuchinni. No cream sauce either. Ymmm.

Gonna be back on track today. I hope.

hello everyone!!

Well here I am on day two doing well with this day so far. I have to say ladies what it all comes down to is calories and nothing else! If you can get yourself to keep track of them you are well on your way. Yesturday I ate A banana Light BBQ potato chips (20 to be exact) A100 cal pkg of chips ahoy cookie thins 2cups of lean cuisine skillet sensations alfredo w veggies & chicken a large onion just sliced and grilled naked on the BBQ and a med green apple. With all that the day ended at 848 calories and me with a ton of energy and feeling better about myself than I have in a very long time. I really didnn't think I had it in me to do this but I have just decided that I am too important NOT to do it! Good luck all and keep posting!! You are all fabulous and a tremendous help!

Twinks,

My ex never took me anywhere either. This one does maybe 4 times a year, but I am not complaining. He's being nice lately and I won't put my foot into that.

Lost,

When I dieted years ago I was told to never eat less than 1,000 coz then it put your body into starvation mode and it stored everything as fat then. I'm not arguing, just asking. They change things so often. I had 3 kids and was told not to do this and that and that's exactly what the docs had you do w/ the previous one. lol. Just an example of change. Anyway, just wondered so I'd get it right. Thanks.

Well, I got my Walk the Weight Away video out today. Still have to plug it in. Maybe I'll get to that tomorrow. lol. Naw, I'll do it tonight. Just kiddin. Better get back to it.

Good luck to ya'll

omw,
you can do it just make a commitment to yourself and maybe what you will find is the new clothed you buy yourself when you have the money will be a size smaller!

mamaC,
That is teur they say you should eat 1,000 cals to maintain your weight when you reach a good goal weight. What I did was to just be cautious about what I ate and not let myself get too hungry. It just turned out that with EVERYTHING I ate it added up to that much. I felt good never got hungry and didn't feel like I cheated myself at all.
Today I went a bit different this morning I had a banana with H2O and trimspa. For lunch I had a 6" veggie sub on wheat bread from subway when I got home I added 1 tbs of Just 2 Good mayo and 1/2 tbs of mustard. I also had 100cals of light chips with that. I also treated myself to an Ice T (plain no sugar or lemon). that meal was about 360cals on it's own! Anyway for dinner I will have another meal that is around 400 cals so today I will take in about 1100. I am just being honest with myself and keeping close track. I really don't have a "set" amount of cals per day just what feels good with in reason.Thank You for watchin out for me, sometimes when we are doing these things we forget about being smart and focus on getting it done fast instead. I want to do it smart and I'm sure I will need many reality checks along the way. But, that is what we are here for to support each other right!

My workout today was 30 min cardio on the treadmill (1.5 miles) followed by a full lower body workout (lunges,squats,etc..) as well as Abs. I am soo proud and feel so good. I hope all of you can feel this good too!!!

Hello all you hard-working health-conscious people!

This is a part of a post from another thread that seemed to make sense for this thread as well. Wondering if anyone here can identify with what I'm saying...

Love to all of you,

Ren'ai

Obviously, I'm thinking a great deal (no pun intended, maybe) about my weight. My mom just had angioplasty and I'm not getting any younger here. I'm struggling, though, because I'm "codependent" on my fat, which is ample enough to be the equivalent of another person. I sort of see my fat as another person, in a way. It protects me from people that aren't interested in "who" I am. I feel like I won't be "molested" again, or "raped" again because of it, although I know this isn't reality. Women of all shapes, sizes, and appearances are molested and raped.

I just watched this Farrelly Bros. movie called "Stuck on You" about conjoined twins. It was very funny, but very real--at least for me. I can identify with feeling like it is time for me to separate from this other person that I carry with me everywhere. At the same time I want the security I feel. I don't know how to choose between the two.

What I do know is that when I'm ready to be thin and healthy I will be. I feel so conflicted. How can I feel the way I do about fat? It doesn't make any sense, I'm sure, to most people but these feelings are very real for me.

Ren'ai, I know someone who was very hurt by a couple of relationships. She decided to become very overweight to protect herself against being hurt anymore. Her thought is that if I am this way, no one will bother me.

I gained 25 lbs in two months time, thought it was my thyroid, but it was not. I am aghast at myself becaue I am always thin, with nary a weight problem. I have heard stress can cause weight gain, and that applies in my situation, but I also had to look at the WHY. I think I must have gone through a period of "protection" as well. So you are definitely not alone in this. We posted some diets to try to get rid of the excess us. I think I needed to learn to love me in spite of.

Today I'm having a hard time loving me "in spite of..."

It is supposed to be my one year anniversary, but she broke up with me in December.

A year ago, I thought I found my soulmate. A year ago, I thought I would never be alone again. A year ago, I believed my "prayers" had been answered. A year ago, I could not wait for tomorrow.

All of that is gone. Today I give myself permission to feel what I feel. I feel I was not good enough to keep her. I feel I was not smart enough to engage her. I feel I was not loving enough to take care of her. I feel like a failure.

I didn't think I would feel like this today--but I do...

Love to you, OMW (giggle...)

Ren'ai

I am sorry for your hurt today, but you have made one year, now it is time to make #2, one day at a time. Did you gain your weight this last year?

I have been a chubbers all my life--I take that back. I started gaining weight when I was about 7 years old. The same thing happened with my children. I used to assume that my weight gain was in direct relationship to my sexual abuse but when it happened to my kids I started to wonder.

I have never seen myself in a "thin" woman's body. I have weighed in at over 170 since high school but now I weigh about 240 and I'm only 5'2".

Now, get this--my ex-partner claims she "LOVES" my body. Says I'm the most beautiful woman she has ever seen. If this is true, then why did she dump me?

I want to be all cool and say "Her loss" and it is, but it's my loss, too.

Love,

Ren'ai

I don't understand the complexities of a woman dumping another woman. I don't know if the feelings are the same as male/female or not, so can't help you there. But as far as self-worth is concerned it applies to all, no matter what one's sexual preference, no matter what we look like we are worthy of love. Your spirit and soul, which is all any of us on here can know, is beautiful and kind. So just keep moving forward, and you will find what you need eventually.

hi all,
just wantd to let everyone know i am still doing great with the diet and excersise. Unfortunatly i am having a bad day emotionally. Hubby and I are not doing well and I just wish I could make it all go away and be good again.I am really worried about him. He gets so down sometimes and he thinks we would all be better off without him even though that is not true. I try to tell him I love him all the time even when he is being a jerk so he won't feel so alone. He says he feels bad for me cause I care about him and that there is no future for him. I am afraid he may snap one of these days and hurt or maybe even kill himself. Sorry just needed to vent that.
