Alright, this week I NEED to get back into gear. I will NOT let my new job be an excuse to stress out and not planning.

I'm currently at 181.4 lbs, same as last week. This NEEDS to change, I want to see the 170s again badly.

Breakfast: Smoothie with Blueberries/Strawberries/Banana and Soy Milk 3/29

Snacks for today: Brought an apple and some almonds(4) with me and teas. 7/29

Lunch: Faitas with tofu, veggies, guac (12) 20/29 - urgh this lunch was WAY too high, probably today will be high with V-Day too.

Well I hate to admit it but I am looking around for another plan. This is not working well with me gaining week after week instead of losing. I am going to stick it out one more week and see what happens but then I don't know what I will do. I am very aggravated, had me a good pity party and got next to no work done this morning. So now here I sit trying to finish up and have a little time with DD tonight.

 

B-drinkable yogurt (6)

 

S-chinese grapefruit

 

L-sandwich - flatout fold over bread, spinach, oven roasted turkey, cheddar cheese, olive oil mayo and Lays potato chips (8)

 

S-2% milk (3)

 

D-Lasagna and garlic bread (10)


Never give up or look back,

mickee, do you mean something other than WW?

Tell us what you decide.

Yes I do mean something other than WW. I do like WW and it used to work for me, but it just isn't right now. I have been looking into going back to Protein Power (Drs. Michael and Mary Dan Eades) which is low carbing. I lost 83 pounds doing that. Or I am thinking of good old calorie counting and using a Body Bugg. I just don't know. I know when I was off plan I at least maintained, and now on plan I am gaining. So something has to give. I will let you know what I decided to do. I am going to stick it out another week here at least and then maybe decide. I have invested so much in books, e-tools, etc. that I hate to give WW up, but talked to a leader today who did not have a whole lot of options either.

Urgh yesterday was a total mess up day, super high calorie - but impossible to count because of a nasty stomach flu. I wasn't going to ponder how much of my meal came up.

So instead, I'll just start fresh buddies!

 

Mickee - I understand your frustrations. I'm right there with you. So I started looking at my old journals and seeing what ended up working for me. I'd love you to still stay with us and post what you're eating, without worrying about the points.

 

I'm going back to something I did like the Abs diet, just a lot more proteins and a lot of fruits/veggies.

 

My plan will always look like this from morning right up until dinner:

Breakfast will be a smoothie with soy milk and vega (4)

snacks will be nuts (5) and fruit, or oatmeal (4)

lunch will be kashi almond flax cereal(5) with soy milk and fruit.

 

Dinner will be lots of veggies, whole grain and a source of protein.

Snacks will have to be a smoothie, fruit or oatmeal.

Mickee- I'm sorry for how things are going right now. Is it possible to merge plans and see how that goes? Can you count points following the low carb plan and still make it all work? Kind of like when you eat Core foods but count the points to monitor portion control? Is there anything going on health-wise that might be affecting things? I know that I really only lose one week out of the month. That's my only real weight loss. The other weeks I either maintain, gain or have a slight loss. That's been my pattern for ages.

Kimberley - I just don't know. Just in a rut and trying to think through it. When you low carb that means only 30-40 ECC (cab minus fiber) carbs a day. To give you an idea of what that would mean, half a banana has 10 cabs, my 2% milk has 12 carbs, slice of bread 14 carbs, greek yogurt has 20 carbs. So that means you eat, protein, meat, cheese, nuts to your hearts content. My minimum protein requirement would be 57 of course you can eat more, but not less. So I thought of trying to do that years and years ago, combining the 2 plans, but it really doesn't work like that. I may have to just come to terms of not losing and be content knowing I am eating better and just stay fat. We will see what happens.

glad to report that I successfully stopped eating at dinner time last night. :bcb_up

 

Mickee, I have never followed one of those low carb diets and, to be honest, the idea of eating only meat, cheese, eggs, and nuts in order to put my body into an artificial state ( ketosis?) also does not seem sustainable.

 

I know it is frustrating. Have you been going back and forth between SFT and points? I think you have mentioned how you do not plan too far ahead for meals and maybe that will have to change. As the old saying goes, if we keep doing the same things we get the same results.

 

My results are not so great lately because my tracking is not accurate and I go over my WPA's. I know this, I know I can change this. If I did not arrive here daily I would have no accountability anywhere, and on my own has not been successful.

 

I hope you can come to some plan for yourself.

Doing good so far. Got my WW planner/tracker out to write everything down. So let's hope the weight comes off this week!

 

TUES restart day, WI 185.6lbs - TARGET 29

3/49 WAPs used - 0 APs earned

Breakfast: Smoothie with Blueberries/Strawberries/Banana and Soy Milk 3/29

Snacks for today: Brought in apples and teas.

Lunch: Kashi Almond Flax Cereal (5) with soy milk (3) 11/29

Dinner: On the run tonight! Almonds (2) 1/2 a Chimichanga (6) and Kashi cereal for the road! (7) 25/29

Ended up going out for the first time in... 6-7 months- 14 pts for the meal, or so it seems from the NI supplied.

This needs to be my only high WAP day this week! 10 WAPs used.

Soda:

 

I really felt much better when I did low carb. I did it for a year, lost 83 pounds, but got off for Thanksgiving and then never got back on. it is one of those things if you stay consistent it works for you, if you don't it doesn't. Kinda true with every plan, with the exception of the first time you low carb is golden and when you try to go back it never works as well repeat times as it did the first go around.

 

The first month I did SFT and lost well, but then when I was able to get the products from the farm with the additional fat, I decided counting would be better to incorporate them into my diet, but then I didn't lose weight either. So yes, I have tried both plans and so now just stuck in a quandary of what to do. I do count everything, but do go over sometimes too. So just trying to think it out. I have spent a lot on e-tools, books, etc. so hate to give up WW but hate to continue gaining too.

Mickee - I would hate to see you give up because of gains. I've had gains too since the new program, but I think with this one - it's to just really measure/count everything. I was doing "Oh, this is about 1 cup - if it was 4 pts on the old plan, it must be 5 now"

And you don't need to go low carb either, perhaps try to only eat whole grains. This is my challenge this week, to ensure it's either bulgur, brown rice, whole wheat couscous, etc.

I've cut sugars this week and it seems to be REALLY helpful!

 

Post your menus for a few days and maybe we can help you out!

Soda - I'm having the same thing as yesterday ha ha.

I'm one of those people that can eat the same thing for break/snack/lunch for months.

I might need another vinegrette though, I had some really stinky garlic breath all day (even though I love garlic).

I followed something Rip Esselstyn does for breakfast today-kiwi in my cereal!

 

Really nice with red river hot cereal and almond milk, and the cut up kiwi.

 

Don't know yet about the rest of the day, but I'm starting off with a nutrient dense meal!
