I'm so proud of myself.......

I'm so proud! Someone brought in donuts this morning and I was actually able to walk by them without grabbing one or two of them. Maybe there is hope for my weight loss yet!!!

::gnash, grit, grr::

I am currently staring at this box of candy - this one woman brings in everyday that's sold for her kids high school ... and my leetle blop of oatmeal is not working this morning ... <looks at teeny Clemantine> ... sigh - but I've been good too.

More power to us!

It's tough this time of year with extreme inclement weather coupled with tons of extra calorie fat laden food lying around. Diet is very critical this time of year as the amount of calories burned is probably substantially less than non winter months. Diet is the best tool to keep it off, when there isn't enough exercise to help out.

What I want to know, is how someone with a stable LowCel has could possibly have problems with weight. How could anyone possibly need more motivation?

So how much are you trying to lose?

I need to lose around 50lbs, ideally if I could lose 80 I would be almost perfect.

It's easy, I had two months that I couldn't ride due to a death in the family and having to remodel a house to get it ready to sell. On top of that factor in having two jobs. Now add in the fact that I still ate the same as I did when I was riding nearly every day. Once all is said and done I gained 20 pounds!

I would like to get back down to around 170 pounds. I need to lose another 22.5 pounds to get there. I'm hoping to be under 180 by mid February when race season starts then lose the rest of the weight by April. I'm trying to set realistic goals.

This will be much easier than when I went from 220 pounds to 168 pounds.

Your situation reminds me that i've finally discovered the weakness of one of my crappy co-workers around here...

She absolutely cannot resist Ferrero Rocher chocolates:

http://www.ferrerochocolatesusa.com/



Someone (may or may not have been me... ) put out a box for the department for christmas and i swear she was grabbing 2 of those things everytime she walked by. And this is from someone always claiming to be trying some new diet or working on losing weight. Ha!

Needless to say, the box of 24 (or more?) was nearly empty by lunchtime and i had only eaten one.

I think the fact that she doesn't exercise makes up for that.

Hurrah for LowCel's power of resistance .

Doughnuts...ummm...carbohydrates.

Chocolate is irresistible, especially if it is Cadbury's. It's in my genes, I can't resist.

An interesting article:

I'm not sure that LowCel would be able to handle water packed tuna anyway. If I remember correctly, LowCel is a fellow migraineur, and I seem to recall that water packed tuna has MSG, unless they've gotten away from that lately.

Yeah, I'm a fellow migraineur and I have been doing pretty well lately. I know it sounds crazy, but I swear this magnetic necklace is actually helping.
