Downeast - Saturday weigh-in
« on: September 04, 2010, 09:09:27 AM »
Iím back! I posted a couple times in July but have not been back since. I started FTS in early July and had great results. Then I slid away from the plan for 2 weeks in August :( I had several social functions and a lot of travelling and just didnít make the right meal choices. I gained 10.8 pounds in those 2 weeks. I have now been back with FTS for one week - and lost 11.4 pounds this week. I am so thrilled. I was afraid  it would take me weeks to get back to where I was, so I am greatly encouraged. Total loss so far is 24.2 pounds. Iím starting to realize when I am not hungry, and when I am, and donít eat by the clock. It often results in eating only twice a day but still not being hungry. The flax bread recipe is a great component of my daily plan for fibre and filling me up.

Now, to keep my determination going and not be led astray again...

That's wonderful!  I had also gained, from steroids, from an accident but lost more than I gained. Keep at it! Welcome back.
Peace and blessings,

Stay the course Beebs my dear, your body will respond in time. :) Good for you on the exercise, great for your heart and metabolism. I spent the afternoon chopping wood! It's 55 degrees at my cabin, big roaring fire in the fire place  8)

Beebers...two months is a long time on a plateau, time for you to go as close to zero carb as you can for a week to break the cycle, watch your BS.

Stress is a bad very bad thing. Screws up weight loss. Also cut those carbs as low as you can. Park as far away from the store as possible so ya have to walk futher (makes my wife crazy  ;D) but I need all the extra I can get. Read F2S again, when I get hung up that's what I do.

Are you still having your weekly carb treats??You said you reward yourself once a week for doing well.That will end your weight loss.
