Re: Big Mama's February Support Thread

Okay, so I'm going back to no soda. Honest. I am also going to limit my grains to one meal a day. I really need to get back to exercising, though. I haven't done anything this week.

Re: Big Mama's February Support Thread

I am finally coming back from the dead (well not really, but it sorta felt like it) ... I'm going to have to re-do week 1 of phase 2 p90x completely. I got in two of the weight training workouts but couldn't manage anything else. Bummer. I did eat really well despite being so sick, and I lost another couple pounds. Sorta surprising given how much orange juice I had this week. Probably drank a gallon to myself! So I'm down to 187 lbs and fitting into size 16 again!

I'm stalled out at 160. I desperately want to see 159 but no love. DH is home this weekend so fitting in exercise and eating within the 1200-1400 range is trickier. He isn't around much so it's easy to be lazy or splurge. A little over a week until weigh ins for biggest loser for the exercise class I am in so as of now I stand a good chance of winning if I stay disciplined. A cheat or slip and I will lose. I just redid my measurements from the second set of ten days in the 30 day shred. My back fat is down considerably and my prebaby dresses fit again after being unable to zip at my ribcage for so long. Here's hoping for strict discipline this week!

Re: Big Mama's February Support Thread

I know I'm going to have those days as I get closer to my goal, but it sounds like you are doing great! Are you making sure you're getting enough water?

AFM, I'm down another lb this am to 186! It's bittersweet, I know that is good, but my mind can't help but say to me "but that's still not skinny" right while I'm trying to celebrate that success. Kwim? Grrr....

UGH....the crappy thing? I know it's right, whether or not there is real science behind it...I've had the nagging feeling for so long now...but I just don't wanna. =( I like my cottage cheese and string cheese and trail mix with the delicious (naughty) chocolate chips and M&Ms in it! Anyways, I'm just going to sit in the floor with my arms hugging my knees like my toddler does and pout about this for a while...maybe if I don't get off this plateau I'll eventually try it. But I don't wanna!
If you are planning on eating Paleo, I suggest reading at Mark's Daily Apple. According to his research, there is nothing wrong with limited, full-fat dairy (raw or organic if you can get it), as long as your body can handle it well. Go a few weeks without, feel the full benefits of Paleo and then reintroduce it. I felt like crap, but I continued to put cream in my coffee

You will feel so much better. Everyone I know who has gone paleo for more than two weeks feels better than they did before. You have to get through that lower-carb fog. It took me almost 3 weeks, but afterward, I felt amazing. Whenever DH eats wheat now, he says he feels like someone clubbed him and his heart starts racing, but it was something he didn't notice a year ago. He's also lost almost 100lb. I am a huge Paleo supporter, if you couldn't tell

AFM- I am starting to get back on track. I have gained 9lb at the 16wk mark. I am up to 219. I was 225 yesterday, but I was up every hour to go to the bathroom last night and it must have all been water. I was hoping to not gain anything for a while, but I think my high-carb wheat and sugar filled diet is messing with that I have been able to eat bits of meat the past few days, so I am hoping that my aversion is subsiding a bit and I can get back on track with eating Primal.

Hey mamas. Congrats on the losses and sorry for the struggles. I have been hovering at 185 for the past 2 weeks. Gaining back up to 188 and going down to 184 but 185 today and that was my official weigh in 2 weeks ago. Hoping to be 184 or 183 on Tuesday when I weigh in. My mini goal is 180 by my daughters first birthday on 3/7.

Re: Big Mama's February Support Thread

I'm an emotional wreck today. Today is my grandmother's first birthday since she passed away in October, and I'm just in a bad mood anyway, and then DH had to act like a COMPLETE jerk to me because he wants to buy a TV outta nowhere. Our TV is less than three years old, and meanwhile, I can't afford to go to the doctor to see why I keep having kidney pain every week, yet he wants to drop $700+ on a TV we don't need? So yeah, he's been so insensitive and downright mean. So I've been doing nothing but eating. I finally stopped myself, but not before I ate probably 4000-6000 calories of junk. =( fml

Welcome! I think I must be reading that wrong, are you saying you plan to loose 40lbs in just over a month? That's a pound a day, I could be wrong but I'm not sure that's possible. Hoping I"m just reading it wrong, or you know something we dont' and you're going to share, because I'm so stuck right now I'm ready to try about anything.

And that pretty much sums up how I"m doing. I'm still up, I"m not losing, and I"m about ready to give up eating right because it's pointless.
