General Questions / coconut water
« on: June 22, 2014, 09:30:40 PM »
I've been seeing articles on coconut water. Can anyone tell me if it is all it claims to be. I've read that it's good for just about anything that ails a person. That it even helps with weight loss. Just wondering.

Lean On My Shoulder / My cholesterol
« on: June 21, 2014, 10:42:39 PM »
I want to talk about my cholesterol and my weight gain. I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and these are my numbers.M y current weight is 205 from 200.  I have gained 5 pounds and my cholesterol is at 205. I told my doctor I want to try to lower my cholesterol with diet and exercise. My blood pressure is 120/70.  I do take a blood pressure pill.

I have to say I am not eating the way I should be. I could blame it partly on my husband for not encouraging me and bringing food into the house that I don't need to eat. But, I am not. Because I am not going to blame him entirely. I know in part I am to blame to because I should be able to "just say no" but I don't have the want to, yet.

That's where all of you are gonna need to comment and help me to stay on course. I can't get on here as much as I would like to but gonna try real hard to keep you all informed.

I am 61 years old, my knees hurt when I try to exercise and I get out of breath when I walk so please ideas are needed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Great job Rob! I enjoy reading your post, it is very inspiring. I am wanting to get to the place where I don't let other people influence me on what I eat or think I have to have what everybody else is having. How do you stay so focused on what you eat? I need some help.

Hi, as someone who has started and stopped and started again, I can attest that if you stick with this program you will lose the weight. I had started in January and lost 8 pounds but some issues came up and I went over the cliff. I'm back now and I know it is going to be a slow process. I am not a patient person when it comes to getting rid of the weight, but I am working at it one meal at a time.

The FTS family is here for us, even with their tough love advice.  ;D which is what I need. together we can take this journey to a new us.

Thanks Umpa, I know exactly what you are saying, It may take me a few days to really get on track but I am know with your help I can do this. I am kinda down on myself today and just need some words of encouragement. When I saw that number, I just wanted to sit down and cry.  >:( . Too me without the real help from my husband I won't be able to do this. He says he is helping but really doesn't the way I want him to. I have talked to him but not much encouragement. That's why I really need some friends on here that will get behind me and encourage me and give me some meal ideas.

I know this program works, I had lost 8 pounds in January but some issues came up and I reverted back.  :-[    :(

Lean On My Shoulder / Good Morning

As you know I started back to the Fat To Skinny program a couple of weeks ago. I haven't posted anything until now because for one, I have been too busy and too, embarrassed to say just how bad I have been doing but I realized that I won't get any help if I don't get on here and speak out. I want to get help and I know the friends on here are very supportive. Please help me out. I have gone up to 206 and when I saw that number this morning I said "THAT'S IT" I am so discouraged this morning. This is the first time I have weighed myself since I started back a couple of weeks.

Breakfast this morning was 2 eggs scrambled with a slice of American cheese (all I had till I go to the store) with 6 slices of pepperoni. 16 oz of water.

Lunch will be pepperoni with American cheese on a few ritz crackers (I know the crackers are not good) a banana and a small bag of veggies (broccoli, carrots and cauliflower). Unsweet tea

Not sure about dinner yet.

As you can see not everything I mentioned is good but my cubboard is bare. :)

I am worried about not getting enough fiber so I am taking metimucil every day.

I hope there is someone out there that can help me out. I was on here back in January and was doing really good. I had lost 8 pounds. Then in February some issues came up and I rebounded back to my old ways. I don't like the way I feel or anything about myself. I am 60 pounds over weight and I am beginning to think I am just going to be this way. My husband doesn't like the way I look and every morning I wake up telling myself that today things are going to change, but by the end of the day I have gone back to my old ways. SUGAR! SUGAR! SUGAR! is my biggest downfall. I got off sugar in January but for some reason I am having a really hard time forgoing the SUGAR this time. Can someone please help me get back on my journey I was once on. I have a personal trainer that I started with at the beginning of April, but I got sick at Easter and have been sick ever since with allergies and bronchitis. I don't want sympathy, what I want is for someone to get very real with me.

My biggest thing is figuring out my meals. I am not very creative. I want a structured meal plan that is made up for me that I can follow. I know there are meals and food ideas on here but what my dream is that I could get someone to make my meal plans up for me. Does that sound crazy? I know this is long but I just had to let you know what my thoughts are.

Hi NoellBlue1, I can attest to what everyone is saying. I have been living this lifestyle for 2 weeks now and have lost 8 pounds.  :D  It is easy to live this way as long as you read your labels and stay below 20 carbs. I am so glad I picked up the Fat to Skinny book. It's gonna be a lifesaver for me. I am feeling sooooo much better than I have in a long time. I am 62 years old and was having a lot of aches and pains, couldn't move without hurting. Believe it or not in this 2 weeks and NO SUGAR I feel great.

We are all friends on here, I just love visiting everyday.  :)

It has been 2 weeks since I started and I have lost 6 pounds. It hasn't been too bad. I also lost an inch and a half in my waist. I still need help tho. Today at work I got to craving chocolate, well, can you guess what I did? I got me a Hershey chocolate bar and a root beer (fully loaded, no diet)  >:(    :'(     Well, I got it out of my system and I'm back on board. Tomorrow is a new day.   ;D      Has anyone else ever do this and how did you do afterwards?  If anyone has any words of wisdom please send them my way. I am really determined to succeed at this and meet my goal.
