A New Weight Loss Support/accountability Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm leaving tomorrow AM for a weeklong trip to NC. I probably won't be able to post while I'm gone and I'm not sure I'll have time to get on later today. I haven't started packing yet and have a busy day ahead of me.

I weighed myself early and have lost 1 more pound. I feel a little discouraged because I would like to be losing 2 pounds a week, but I guess it's better than gaining.

I hope that I can be disciplined while I'm on my trip. I'll be staying with my cousin, who is slim and always dieting, so hopefully it will be easy to eat fruits and veggies. I'll also be doing most of the cooking, since she's clueless about gluten-free and I don't want to get sick.

If I don't have a chance to check in again while I'm gone, good luck to all of you and hope you have great success in the next week!

Welcome Kassandra! Glad to have you join us. It looks like you might need to have a little more protein with each meal. That might help you avoid cravings for things like chocolate chips. ;)

Donna - I encourage you again to get tested either through Enterolab or your doctor. If you are gluten intolerant or Celiac, you're hurting yourself to eat that much gluten. Is your husband supportive at all?

I did pretty well over the weekend, although I didn't really keep track of everything I ate. I worked out hard on Saturday and then went for a bike ride last night.

Well when I can get the money together for the testing then I will go for the whole test. My husband is supportive be he just does not understand what it is that I have to stay away from, he knows that I have to stay away from Tomatoes.

:) When my other choice is veggies...

So. Knowing I was going to have to post this I did NOT go home and plop my butt in front of the TV and consume half a chicken dipped in barbecue sauce while watching Wheel of Fortune.

Instead I got off the bus 1/2 mile early and walked home, then chopped 1 breast from the chicken in my frig and added ~3 T of light Miracle Whip and ate little spoonfuls of that on celery. For dessert I had 1 pear and three plums.

B - Three tomatoes, ~3T olive oil, 2 eggs sauted together.

:) WOW that is a lot of Tomatoes that you eat, this is one thing that I really have to stay away from, I would be like pedro sick in the bathroom soon after eating them :)

Well, I just had a Dr's appointment. Got checked over pretty completely. turns out my HDL (the good ones) levels are way too low. Dr suggested eating more seafood (yum), more good fats (avocado, etc), and drinking more wine. Might be the first good news I've got from a Doctor in years! =>

the bad news is I've been told my weight is also an issue, and I need to lose some. Is it too late to join in the thread?

How much do you need or want to loose, can't be that much from your picture you seem pretty active.

I am pretty active. I kayak once a week or so. four or five years ago I was running marathons, but was starting to have a hard time staying active. Since my diagnosis, I've been feeling better, but gaining weight. Can't really figure out how, except stressed and busy and not excercising much.

I've always been big, football player/wrestler build, but have been getting pudgy. I'm weighed in at 282 this morning. Last time I was at 225, I was feeling pretty good about my build. I was muscular and didn't mind going to the beach shirtless. That was about 5 years ago, before my health got worse. I'd like to get back to that, so that's a fairly ambitious 50 pounds.

Hello Everyone,

A less ambitious weigh-in day than last week.

I'm 160 (2 lbs. up) and I refuse to measure my waist. Denial? Yes. And I'm okay with that.

Geoff, welcome.

50 lbs, huh? You're looking to get lean, ay? Good to have you here.

I've been pretending like this thread does not exist, as I've been bad, bad, bad. I'm up 2 lbs. on the scale, and not being attentive to this part of my life. I have, however, been walking and walking and walking.

Seeing how it's weigh in day and all, I'm ready to try again.

Hope you all are doing well, and I wish you all many losses (of pounds or kilos as the case may be) in the days to come.

Well, I'm not off to the best start. I was up till almost 3 working, and got up at 6. Pretty tired. I had a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles for breakfast, with FF milk and a lactaid pill.

Strangely, my neuropathy, which hasn't been acting up much, is really bad today. this morning, trying to type, I was having a rough time.

This is my first Friday weigh in. I'm at 155 (up from 146 about 6 weeks ago)....AAAAAARGH!!!

Yesterday I had:

my normal morning coffee with rice milk

one Glutino blueberry breakfast bar and a bowl of rasberries (breakfast)

a roasted turkey and hummus wrap for lunch (I used a Vietnamese rice wrap, SO good and the hubby's idea!)

an apple for a snack

basmati rice with peas, curried lentils, and spinich for dinner

some blueberries and pineapple for dessert

Today:

Ummmm...it's 10:40 a.m. and I have only had the coffee so far, but the meal plan is:

two Trader Joes gluten-free pancakes with blueberries for breakfast

going to the beach today, and bringing an apple, carrots, roasted turkey, and some hummus for lunch

probably a bowl of berries at some point (they are so ggod this time of year!)

Husband's cooking dinner tonight and he's making pepper steak, steamed veggies, and a salad

for dessert, he picked up a teeny tiny Crave Bakery gluten-free chocolate cake and some dairy free ice cream

Excercise? I actually got on the treadmill and walked for about 30 minutes this morning and did about 20 minutes of yoga. This is the first time in years I have actually felt energized by excercising instead of needing a nap...I must be doing something right!!!

Happy Friday all!!!

It did not take me long to gain my 30-40lbs And my last post was and is pretty much how I eat but with wheat breads and pastas. If I knew that I was going to have a pasta meal like spegettii I just may a bowl of ceral skip lunch and eat dinner not a whole lot of food because I am not a junk food eater like my husband but because of what I ate not how much I ate was causing me to gain man go figure. Now I am eating better choice foods and I am loosing the weight, I am not craving the foods and this morning when I woke up I did feel drunk or not have to close my eyes and go to sleep again for 30 minutes I felt refreshed and great. I love that feeling.

Well this is a "Great Thread"

And I too need or want to loose 20lbs before my son's wedding in October, but I have some difficulty problems with the exercise things (I can't use my arms due to severe nerve damamge) and I have a spine stimulator for the pain so my exercise program is quite limited :(

I don't have an appitite either due to wearing morphine patches for the pain too :(

So I can't figure why I gained wht I have unless it is due to my hormones being still out of wack from ovaries being removed 3 years ago (when I went for the surgery I wieghed 105- now I weigh 128 ) :angry:

I tried a month of hormones and gained 20 lbs :(

My age is 44 and maybe this has a factor too !

I eat wht I can to stay healthy but with the gluten being everywhere and not a big milk fan (lactose intol.) I have not very many choices for meal plans.

I don't like fruit or many veggies :(

I use to be a junk food junkie and was always a toothpick til now ;)

So any of u have some suggestions?

I am also allergice to chocolate,milk,LAYTEX,avocodo's,bananas, things that come in platsic like p.butter, kraft single, and can do some string cheeses as long as they r lite and do eat chicken alot or turkey burger I like fish,pizza,use to like spagetthi, :P

On a daily basis I eat chicken salad made with canned chicken with water drained,onions,onion salt,pepper,miarcle whip,and I use gluten free tostetoe's for dippers sometimes just rice on a plate and chciken salad is my dinner or lunch :)

I really am not a breakfast fan and never have been.

So if u have any suggestions on how to get this off before October throw them my way :rolleyes:

I have been told the more u eat sevral times a day the better u r with a stable matab. but the more I eat the fatter I get lol

I have to make myself eat due to no appitite, but am I eating too much starch?

Seems I need all of ur help on this one :huh:

I have tired slim fast products but gained didn't loose a lb.

So help me plz :) sorry this was soooooo long lol > OH btw I'am also only 4ft 11 1/2 inches tall :lol:

Thanks !

Geoff don't get too discouraged it took me a while to lose, last year it took me a while to lose a little and then all the sudden it just melted off a total of 14lbs and then I got the call that everything was negative, I was tested while gluten-free and I know now that was a mistake

This is what I have for Sunday, I actually ate more today.

B- 2 eggs, 2 turkey bacon, 2 gluten-free toast, Lactaid milk, coffee

L - gluten-free sandwich with ham and gluten-free cheese, Diet coke

D - at work which sucked because I was running late, not enough time to fix my dinner

Lean Cusine Rice and Beans with sour cream sauce, salad with baby carrots, brocoli and 2 baby pickells. I found the LC rice and beans on a list of safe foods but I don't think that it is too safe because my stomach has been hurting me and D, I'm ok nero wise, but I have lost another pound which makes me 152lbs. On the ingrediants for the rice and beans I saw hydrosomething corn gluten I don't know if this is safe or not.

Okay yesterday (Sunday) I had:

breakfast: the regular coffee with rice milk, Erwhon(sp) corn and amaranth puffs w/rice milk and a couple of dried black figs

lunch: grilled chicken salad w/fresh corn and black beans tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar

snack: a bowl of blueberries

dinner: baby bokchoy stir fried in sesame/soybean oil and gluten-free tamari sauce, steamed rice, shrimp cooked in Malaysian red curry sauce, and something like 5 glasses of water because the curry was SO spicy (but boy oh boy was it good)

dessert: one cocoa merengue cookie and a glass of Pu-errh tea

Plus the family and I went for a crazy long walk together yesterday on the levee (like over an hour).

Today I will have:

breakfast: 2 Trader Joes gluten-free/dairy free pancakes with blueberries and of course I can;t forget my coffee with rice milk!

lunch: 2 warmed corn tortillas wrapped with roasted turkey and hummus (this really good one from Trader Joes that has cilantro and jalapenos in it...tastes better than it sounds!)

snack: an apple and some medjool dates

dinner: probably some left over rice with the curry sauce and more bokchoy cause I am working late tonight.

Excercise: I did a 45 minute pilates/yoga workout this morning.

Hello all, I think that I have been doing ok with my diet so far, but today I don't know, feeling a little nasues

Monday slept until 3 pm because I worked Sunday night

D- Spegetti with rice noodles

diet coke

water before bed

Tuesday

B- 2 gluten-free vann waffles

Lactaid Milk

L- brown rice tortilla with sunshine burger with gluten-free cheese

diet coke

water

snack 3 musketeers and partial diet DP

D- at work Amy's gluten-free mac and cheese with chicken

and a few bits of Tuna salad out of the machine with rice crakers from home, I only had 3 bites and was afraid of some ingredients that i did not know so i trashed it, but i know 3 bites is enough to get sick, but ever since I have eaten those Smart Ones Santa fe style rice and beans with sour cream sauce, I have been having a lot of gas and trapped gas in my back between my shoulder blades and my tummy making noises. who ever put this on the list of foods that was safe they are wrong. I printed up some list that I think is from the North Texas GIG and is a Celiac diet table of things that you can eat it give day by day on things that you can eat for B, L, D, and snack ideas, this list also offers Stouffors glazed chicken that is safe to eat, I don't know if the Smart ones is affecting me I don't think that I want to try the chicken one.

Happy eating everyone
