I wish I could keep myself motivated for more than a few weeks at a time Confused.
I did well today though, stayed under my calories although I had to eat some totinos pizza rolls today b/c there was nothing else in my house.
I've already lost about 2 lbs of my prednisone weight gain though Star
Only 110 lb's to go!
Off to watch some of Mizbritt's youtube vids, she's such an inspiration!

my hcg drops will be here tomorrow. I'm actually glad I didn't research more before I got them. I'll do this first round see how it goes and be willing to drop the $$ for the "real" thing.

I'm really hopeful that this is my time to be serious about taking the weight off. no more wishing and dreaming but Actually doing and changing. it

I found this quote the other day and it really inspired me: "Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."

Have not exercised in over 7 mths. Piled on 15 lbs, but need to lose 30 lbs eventually .




Posted By: FirstLady_CoCo
Date Posted: Mar 14 2014 at 2:54pm
I lost 30 pounds and I've gained at least 15 of  those pounds back Cry

Step 1: Download and form a team on MyFitnessPal & Pact ( I need people who are just as dedicated as me due to me living with someone who gains weights & just doesn't care)

Step 2: Designate time to work out on my hectic schedule to meal plan and schedule workouts (full-time student who works 2 jobs)

Step 3: Get to it! I have a gym membership that I pay for every month but never use.

So anyone on MyFitnessPal and wants to be bugged by me?

Made a deal with myself today..

I will have 12 ozs water with my designated meals. (I have difficulty with water intake.

If I want to snack between meals, I will have 12 ozs water first, even if it is just one grape. If I really want that grape, I will be forced to drink water first. (Just another way to get my water intake).

Made my pot of Hot & Sour Soup. It tasted sooooo good. I had to talk myself out of having a second helping. There is enough for a few days , and will only get better with time.   Something to look forward to tomorrow

Menu plans for the next few days...Stir Fry Veggies, and Brown Rice Sushi !!!
Got all my Sushi making stuff today, including lots of Wasabi

Made my Stir Fry Vegetables. Kept it lite, not too much of the sauces. It was sooooo good, and one bowl was really filling.

I am going to walmart and my markets to look for vital gluten and  nutritional yeast and some cans of Jackfruit to try to make me some vegan chicken to help curb hunger  while trying to lose weight LOL

From all these videos, I've surmised to add peanut butter for protein, soy sauce, oil,liquid smoke and chicken bullion to the water you boil your gluten in.
If you add JACKFRUIT in a can from the Asian aisle, it actually replicates chicken and pulled pork texture!

Ideally , I can find & mix ALL of the above to make  the BOMB vegan  chicken ! 

on a side note, did you know the Chinese are actually selling FAkE EGGS?

A 3oz Pork Chop, or 4oz Chicken Breast is better to 'snack' on calorie-wise, than Nuts and Cheese . It is certainly more filling


Posted By: Benni
Date Posted: Apr 03 2014 at 8:44pm
So giving up meats for Lent, and hoping to lose weight with fruits and veggies, cheese and nuts has not been working out well for me.
I did not have a clear 'diet' plan.
Too many carbs. Protein powder in my juice makes me want to drink too much of it because it's just too tasty
Having 1 oz of cheese or nuts..Too much of a tease. I will not have these items in my home for a very, very long time.
My weight loss diets must be more clear-cut, Right now my food options are not well balanced at mealtime with the adequate servings of Carbs-Fat-Protein.

Well I finally made it to the health food store and got 2 boxes of Vital Gluten, nutritional yeast and made the vegan fried chicken I was talking about on the previous page. Well I seasoned the hell out of that wheat flour until it ended up tasting like popeye's chicken! I wet the gluten flour with chicken bouillon cubes in water, used liquid smoke, paprika, cayanne, onion powder, garlic powder , cumin, black pepper, soy sauce etc. I boiled the "chicken" nuggets in water with liquid smoke and soy sauce for about 20 minutes. Then I took it out and fried it with an egg dredge and New Orleans fish fry flour. The flavor of this "chicken" actually surprised me! I have a big bowl of it .

The pieces of "chicken" that crumbled at the bottom of the first boil pot were turned into mock ground beef, and browned in bbq sauce, diced onions and bell peppers to make a pot of chili with beans. So I have a HUGE pot of chili and a huge pot of fried chicken all with fake meat made out of vital gluten!

I am actually AMAZED at how much they taste like meat sort of when seasoned properly! I think I can be vegetarian for a spell with mock meat that tastes this good!

PS I think I will toss my chicken nuggets in bbq sauce and hot sauce to make them hot buffalo chicken nugget/wings. Then I will serve them with some blue cheese dip on the side. For the big bowl of chili, I will get some sour cream and melt some shredded cheese  to sprinkle on top! So I will have delicious chili and buffalo chicken nuggets for the next  week or 2  to warm my  tummy... unless I put some in the freezer for later! Thumbs Up I know it is not vegan bc of the egg, sour cream, cheese. But it is vegetarian!

Started Master Cleanse this morning 4/14/14. Feeling really good, except I miss Coffee .
I will like to lose a few lbs, but this Cleanse is primarily to clean my Colon. Which when I think of it is the same thing, because it has been sluggish for a few months .
Hope the 'hungries' doesn't overwhelm me later because I really want to sustain this for at least 10 days.



Posted By: Benni
Date Posted: Apr 14 2014 at 12:45pm
Lady A, your 'Chicken' sounds delicious, but I may have to make a point of not reading your posts in this section while on this Cleanse, because I may just lose control .




Posted By: LadyAradia
Date Posted: Apr 14 2014 at 6:05pm
for lunch I took some of the mock ground beef that was browned in bbq sauce, onions, garlic and bell peppers. I put it on some buns with some cheese and ketchup under the broiler to make a mock sloppy joe/bbq beef sandwich. It was actually pretty decent too!
So this fake meat thing can actually work if you're a good cook!

Cheated a little mid afternoon . Had what I perceived to be hunger pangs and had a little bit of 1/2 Caff Coffee (black), it did the job of satisfying whatever that was.

Water and ACV is working well also

Well I can safely say I made it through Day-1 without cracking, except for the Coffee glitch.
Drank 100 ounces water. Too many trips to the restroom though .

Looking forward to tomorrow

Starting day-2 of Master Cleanse, and I am feeling confident that I will make it to the end because yesterday went so well.
I've had brief thoughts of food, but they went away with a shake of the head .
Determination is very powerful thing.
Gaining 20 lbs in 6 months is ridiculous

Lost 3.4 lbs of water in my first day. Can't wait for my Colon to be stripped clean


Posted By: Benni
Date Posted: Apr 15 2014 at 10:21pm
Made it through another day. Still surprised that I am not too tempted to raid the freezer.
Had Green Tea instead of Coffee.   Although this 'Cleanse' recommends Mint Tea.   I can't be bothered.     I have way too much Green Tea at home, as long as I'm not using cream or sugar, I should be okay.
Looking forward tomorrow.   Maybe I'll do a little exercise.

Day-3 almost done . Drinking less 'Lemonade' than I did on Day-1, but every once in a while I crave a Hamburger . Strange, since I cannot recall the last time I had a Hamburger...Years !!
Every food commercial have me wanting whatever they're showing.
Played a few frames of Wii Bowling. Maybe I'll try Tennis tomorrow

Starting Day-4 of my 'Cleanse', and feel very encouraged that I have lost 5.1 lbs of some things. I started this because I felt like I needed a colon cleansing, and it seem to be working. I will soldier on until I have used all the Lemons I have on hand.
Will try to get in at least 45 minutes of Wii Tennis today. Can't do too much because I am not taking in any Protein.

After today, I will still be doing this for another 10 days. So, we can do this together. Not sure how long you plan to do it.
My first day was the worst.   I have absolutely no appetite now, forgetting to drink my Lemonade and water...Unimaginable .

It is going okay.  Currently I am craving popcorn...missed having my big breakfasts on the weekend Cry.
Fortunately no temptation, not really into most holidays around my house. 
 
I see you are doing well, still marching on.  I will feel so gratified when I have a few days under my belt.  I bought a cute sweater that is a little bit too small.  If I stick with this I should be able to fit into it lol.  Clothes is how I measure myself more so than weight.
 
What made you decide to do the Master Cleanse?


Posted By: Benni
Date Posted: Apr 20 2014 at 6:41pm
You will be in that Sweater in no time.

I am doing the Cleanse because I feel that my bowels have been a bit sluggish lately. Sometimes that happens when I have a sudden intake of too much fiber, instead of easing into it. My water intake has also been lacking. I tend to drink way too much Coffee.    Since on the Cleanse, I have managed sneak in a few sips once in a while.

Good Luck, and step away from the popcorn

I started this Cleanse 1-week ago today, and so far I've lost 8.3 lbs.   I've had fleeting moments of certain foods, but they went away quickly.    Not a person that likes, or does exercise, but owns a room full of exercise equipment .   I have been doing 5-10 minutes of 'something' lately just to keep revved up, nothing strenuous.
Must change my lazy ways when this 'Cleanse' is over.

Hi, Is this day-2 or 3 for you ?   You tickle me, I get the cheese cravings, but onions .
I am getting used to not having to prepare meals.   I even found Lemons on sale, and couldn't resist buying. Still have no plans to go beyond 15 days, at least for now.


Good Luck today

I would like to do at the least a week out of a month for a while but I don't know if I will do that.  I forgot to mention... do you take magnesium?  I take magnesium bisglycinate, it really helps to keep my bowels regular.

No on the Mg. Is that a stool softener? For that I take China Slim Tea twice daily. I also do not do the Salt Water Flush either. This first time I did this Cleanse, it did not work well for me, at least the way they said it should.
I will try to find the Mg though. Thanks for the suggestion.

I hope your day went well.

It isn't a stool softner but it keeps things regular.  Well I have a chart that shows you how to take it.  My doctor told me that when my stool becomes loose (i.e. diarrhea) take the previous days suggested amount and not to go any further.  I started taking Mg for other reasons.  Easy going to the bathroom was just something I noticed.  Well before prescribing it, my naturopath doc asked if when I went to the bathroom were there any little balls lol.
I commend you for doing so well on this cleanse.  The low stomach grumbles are starting to get to me.

Day-9, and I am ready to get off this 'Cleanse' but, I have 6 days left after today.   No weight loss. Still at 8.3 lbs lost.   Getting all the side effects of the 'Cleanse' so I know it's working. Latest is the flu-like symptoms.   It's easy to deal with if you know what to expect.

Thanks.  It is going...I have not said much because I don't want to whine lol.  Hope you get to feeling better soon.  How long does the flu like symptoms last?

Whining is permitted
As for the 'flu' symptoms, I am not sure. I know from readings that it is to be expected, but when I did this Cleanse for 30 days, I did not experience it. It's not bad, just stuffiness. I let you know tomorrow.
I have to brush my teeth often because of the cotton tongue and halitosis due to ketosis

Did the link work ??

Day 10 tomorrow !!!! 2/3 done, 1/3 to go !!!

Day 10 of Master Cleanse, still experiencing those symptoms. Today with post-nasal drip. I have to remember this is a 'Cleanse' system wise, so it's now going through my Respiratory System.
I guess my Colon was not as backed up as I thought because there is not much elimination. I am just a bit anal about B.M's
My weight lost to date 9.5 lbs

The link worked, Thank You Very Much.
 
Woohoo Benni on the weight loss.  I think I may manage at the least 5 lbs when this over...every little bit helps so Beer.  I will weigh myself Sunday or Monday to see exactly how much.
Today I want a tuna melt...

Happy that you got through with the link.

Earlier today I toyed with the idea of extending to 20-days, but by this evening I would do just about anything for a Burger . Who knows, tomorrow I may feel like 20-days again !!!

I think this will help when I go off M.C, being able to control cravings, and recognize them for what they are.



Thanks

Day-11. Had a rough night, achy, chills...
Did a Salt water flush this morning. Drinking 32 ounces warm salt water is not easy. Feel like spending the day in bed, but I should do some sort of exercise today. Don't really feel like it though.
Weight remains at 9.5 lbs lost
