...we should do as Daniel did when he was in the palace of the King (I can't remember how to spell the King's name) eat only fruits, veggies and drink nothing but water.  Daniel didn't want his people to eat the fatty foods perpared by the King's cooks. 

King Nebuchadnezzar. Congrats from me too!

Major congrats to everyone who has been posting lately. 

I just read through this whole thread, just to get inspired. 

As it often goes, I regained those 30 pounds I worked so hard to lose back in 2010.  So, it's time to get back on the wagon and lose, lose, lose. 

No gimmicks, just the basics.  I believe in the no-carb rule.  It certainly worked for me three years ago. 

So, after a weekend of major and lovely carbs, it's show time.

Tonight's dinner was a little creamy cheese with pear and apple slices (be gone, you dreaded crackers!) followed by lovely fresh king salmon sautéed on high heat, accompanied by roasted shallots, carrots and parsnips; a little steamed broccoli and an avocado salad.  No carbs and good fats. Sparkling water, and easy on the wine. 

We can do it. 

Thank you, all, for your inspiration again. 

Thank you, Katherine, for your example. 

Chuckie, you can do it!  I remember meeting you in 2007, when you were at your best! 

Luvlylittlewing, you go gurl!

My gosh, that sounds like a lovely dinner!

If you ever get tired of shrinkology, you could take up cooking, I'm sure.  :D

Chuckie, you can do it!  I remember meeting you in 2007, when you were at your best! 

So now I'm at my worst, is that what you're saying, bitch?   >:( :laugh: :laugh:

Sorry to hear you gained that weight back, doesn't that suck?  So easy to regain it, but so hard to lose it in the first place.   And now the second place.


after 5 days on a plateau, the scale read three more pounds dropped off today.




So I have about 20 days to lose 10 more pounds, and hit my goal of 10% of my body weight between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday.

Some interesting action in this thread lately.

Here are my 2 cents:

For the last 8 months I've kept myself on a diet inspired by WW, but in my own interpretation.
I've cut down on the fatty and sweet stuff, eat a LOT of veggies to fill me up instead of more calorie laden foods, and drink mostly water and tea. Lots of fruit, very little bread. Whole meal. A piece of chocolate or a cookie now and then, but only one.

In these 8 months I've lost just over 10 kg (22 pounds), which is about half of my goal. I'm very pleased with it.

The slow rate is deliberate, I don't aim for a quick weight loss. I aim for a lifestyle that will last, with healthy habits that hopefully will prevent me from gaining again.

No matter the weather, I take a walk every day after work, between 30 and 60 minutes.


Congrats to everyone on their weight loss, and good luck to all of us!!!
