Day 76

I anticipated this. It has been a long week. I have to take the good with the bad and so taking this weight photo and posting it is part of it. Good thing is it is not that much, but it went up .8.  So be it. Just drank the first out of 8 mandatory bottles of water. So it is chug a lug let's give this bitch another go at! LOL

I am bummed, but I found new inspiration by reading that our StS sister Miss April has not only lost 6.5 lbs in a week, but she has entered the 200's.  That is outstanding. I needed this stall to see beyond my own personal journey. It was the first thing I did this morning to see her blog post on 30 before 30. Please go there and celebrate with Miss April!

Another pick me up today is the lovely quiche that you can find the recipe if you scroll down this month's posts on Bike N Butter. The current photo shows a quiche muffin with bacon on the side. If you look at the bacon, it is a choice cut with meat and really looks great. I like her- No Whining and 100% compliance goal.

Jacqui, at Losin' My Jelly Belly...One Bean At A Time had a very inspirational post yesterday. Some of the factors I am dealing with and many of us are is not FOOD but FEELINGS. I gotta big heart and I feed it, too.  These issues identified need to be addressed and curbed for sure.

Myra's Journey posted a very spiritual post yesterday, and I must send you there as well. 

I am starting this StS week, not alone, but with some very good and inspiring company. I am thankful for their views and especially with this almost flat week of mine!  The blog roll is to the right and I cherish each and every one of them (you). I must recall my initial mantra like thought of diet bloggers "Internet Sensations"!

Mary Pickford, America's sweetheart is my before and after today. I picked her because she is a "Drama Queen". LOL!

  1. You hang in there, friend. There will be ups and downs on this journey to better health, just as there are in life. I think the best work I've done along the way is on my head and my heart. The rest will fall in line as we get that figured out. Praying for a great week for us all! ;-)

  2. I get a kick out of your sense of humor. I know of no one who went straight to goal with no stray weeks. Let's get down to business and do this right. Thank you for the plug about my blog.

  3. Don't be afraid... There are 1000's of ways to lose some weight, and if followed they should be effective if they have sound medical reasoning behind them. Follow your plan, focus on your life and not everyone else trying to lose an ounce, and you will never be disappointed in the efforts you see. It's all good, and hopefully everyone will get lighter...

  4. that .8 is just a lil bump in the road. you're doin great and i KNOW you'll get there! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  5. The oats. When you've been doing super low carb or fat fasting (as you have) any carb reintroduction will cause you to retain some fluid. It's just how it is. I had salty foods and taters yesterday and extra fruit, and blam, up the scale.

    If you want to eat low carb, moderate carb, Zone, high carb, whatever. Different folks do better on different diets based on their preferences and inherent metabolisms. Lots of folks thrive on high carb. I'm just not really one of them. Could I lose weight eating high carbs--I did when I was young. I have a harder time now. It's just the breaks.

    Whatever plan you choose, stick with real foods prepared to be tasty, and simply, and you'll do fine. Just know that reintroducing carbs will throw the scale up. It's not gaining fat. It's gaining glycogen and fluids...

  6. Stick to the plan and the scale will give you the results. The scale fluctuates a lot too.

    Love your picture! Americas sweetheart!

  7. You just keep on keeping on.. you've done amazing! and yeah, sometimes the scale will go up a bit with not much reason... but it will even out in the end.

    Thanks for the shout out. :) It's tough when we eat our feelings, eh? We're all figuring this out together.. it's great to have the challengers helping each other out!

  8. Ups & downs are all part of this roller coaster ride to better health. Keep at it. You can do it.

  9. Ups and downs is what the scale does. Keep to a plan that works for you. You can do this, we all have faith in you. We believe in you. Stay strong.
    Take car eand God Bless!!!

  10. The scale definitely goes up and down - from day to day! The important thing is that it goes down over time.

    And it will! Persistence, not perfection!


Thank you for taking a looksie!
