Default No weight loss this week.

My mistake, I incorporated nuts into my diet this week. Even though some nuts
are 'low carb friendly' I still find them as a huge trigger food. That and
sunflower seeds.
I really just can't have them in the house. My daughter doesn't care for most
nuts and DH is low carbing too, although he seems to have much more self
control than I do.
DH was informed last night that if he wants to incorporate nuts into his diet
that he needs to eat them somewhere else besides home. He is OK w/ it. I'm
not sure he quite understands it, but he has been very supportive of our
lifestyle changes.
Lesson learned.
This week I am sure to do better

That was a good move. There are some food that bug me that I either no
longer purchase (which means they generally don't come into the house at
all -- certain chip type items) or that I will buy but put in my
husband's home office (chocolate type things usually). He knows to put
them in a drawer or something. It becomes and out of sight out of mind
thing for me and I don't go through his things so that works for us.

DH has been supper supportive. I think that it helps that I do the menu
one week at a time. I list some entree choices and he matches them to
the day of the week. That way he has some say so (if he doesn't like
the choices, we revisit them at that time). The only problems that I
run into are weekend lunches (he would like to go out) and if we go out
to dinner (he sometimes wants choices that I don't feel "safe" with).
Overall, though, he's been really good.

It sounds like you have a supportive environment too. That sure helps!

What kind of exercise are you doing Jarkat?

Walking on the treadmill at the YMCA
Using the nautilus equipment
Swimming
Water aerobics
Family walks (slow because of the girls .. but it's still walking)
Stretching at home every night. Teaching my 4yo how to stretch and using my 7
month old as a weight for me. lol.
Stationary bike at the Y (but not often, usually I use this as a cool down)
Elliptical Machine (Every day I add 1 minute)
This does not include chasing after 2 little ones, housework, wallpaper
stripping, etc.
I'm pretty damn active. I'm considering taking a karate class, but not sure I
can fit it in w/ family obligations and work schedules. Looks like fun though.

How many calories per day do you eat?


I have no idea, I don't count them.

I thought that you dropped your low carb diet (SBD)? Have you switched
to another diet?


The best what I can call my diet is modified Atkins. I can't do induction due
to breast feeding, and I can't say as low carb as the Atkins plan calls for.
I'm also uncomfortable eating huge amounts of fat (I just don't care for it).
I eat no bread, sugar, wheat, rice, or any other processed grain for that
matter. Although I have bought a low carb cereal that I enjoy made w/ flax.
I eat lots of veggies, 1 pc of fruit a day, legumes, beef, pork, chicken, fish.
While I didn't lose any weight this week I have lost 11 lbs total so far. So
it's working for me. My mistake is in thinking I can have a 'few' snack foods
in the house. I then find myself snacking, and not hungry during meals, then
hungry after meal time is over and snacking again. It's a bad cycle that I got
myself into, and now out of.

Are you sure that the nuts that you eat and sunflower seeds are low
carb food?

i


Not now. That's why I will no longer be eating them.

How many hours per day Jarkat?

1 hr to 1.5 hrs, depending on what my schedule is. This does not include the
15 - 30 min stretching session our family is having every evening.

This does not include chasing after 2 little ones, housework, wallpaper
stripping, etc.


do not count that time...


Well, we will have to disagree here. I put a lot of effort into my home and do
almost all improvement projects. Some are a lot of work! I don't exactly
include work time as part of my exercise time, but it still counts.

try one day, it will be iluminating. I know that it is a real pain in
the ass though, I did it just once during my dieting, last week
actually.


I'm not ready to go there yet ... but maybe at some point.
What did you find when counting your calories?



yeah, if you cannot deal with it, throw it out... I have to live with
snacks at home (all kinds of sweet, chochlate stuff etc) but I never
put it in my mouth to not be tempted.


I wish I could say I could have it here for the rest of the family, but I
can't. Maybe at some point .. but it's not now.

keep going, weight fluctuates, especially for women.

Thanks.
When did you start dropping weight? How long have you been at your goal?

It sounds like to me that while you are on the right track with the food
and exercise choices that you need to start counting calories and/or
doing some portion control on your intake. You would be really surprised
at what an actual 2 oz "serving" of something is.
YMMV but that's what works for me.

I'm glad that works for you Susan. You look like your doing great.
I'm sure your right, and I do keep a watch out on portion size. But it's good
to be reminded to do so.
For me, there is no portion control w/ snack foods, even legal ones. It's all
or nothing.
I hope that as I develop healthier eating habits I won't have to be quite so
black and white w/ this issue.

I agree. I have a few household projects that really burn calories. One
of them is trimming my hedges. I've got huge hedges, over 100 years old
and over my head. I move the step-ladder, climb up it, swing the trimmer,
step down, move the ladder, repeat. It's a 4 hour workout! I also did a
project involving 900 pounds of tile and lots of stairs (tile saw
downstairs, tile upstairs) and THAT was a hell of a lot of work.

But even the everyday stuff can work up a sweat. We turned on our heat
yesterday (FINALLY!) and we had to dust all radiators everywhere. And
that means we dusted everywhere, in essence. I didn't get a workout in
yesterday officially, but by the time I had done all the housework I was
sweating and exhausted. That counts, believe me.

try one day, it will be iluminating. I know that it is a real pain in
the ass though, I did it just once during my dieting, last week
actually.

What did you find when counting your calories?


I use www.Fitday.com once in a while - usually when I'm stalled - to get a
handle on portion sizes more than anything. Sometimes I just have to go
back to measuring. I mean, 15 almonds is one thing, but eating several
handfuls of uncounted almonds is another thing entirely. (I agree with
you about nuts - we're done with almonds for now. I had the same reaction
as you.)

I thought this sig was so sweet. I really miss my four year old
daughter. Sadly, she's nearly 13 and has turned into the Ice Princess
from Hell. She tells me she hates me almost daily. (Because I get her to
school late most days. Her private school that I can't afford and that
has no busing and is in another town and makes me not be able to take
clients all afternoon because I have to stop in the middle to go get
her. That school.) My boys still love me, though.

My favorite is mulching the landscape islands out front. 50 bags,
50lbs each. Lug from the bed of the truck, cut open, dump, spread w/
rake. This is done 3 times a year. So its a rare workout, but a
good one.

If you have stairs in your home, all the better for workouts. I
miss homes w/ stairs

I've got to ask - why the priivate school then?

The biggest reason is that she needed to skip a grade and the school we
sent her to is self-paced so she could work through 6th, 7th, and 8th
grade in two years. She's in her second year there. It's doing just what
we hoped it would do academically, but it puts her with children who have
access to privileges we can't normally afford and the snotty element has
gone up several points beyond what it normally would have at this age.

I think she's pretty damn privileged, myself. For example, on this
summer's home improvement we added a master bathroom to the house: but
it's attached to HER bedroom, not ours. It just worked out that her
bedroom was the best one to convert into a suite and we don't have a big
urge to displace her. (She gets displaced for guests, though.) She also
gets regular vacations to Florida and shopping trips to New York City and
various other perks that I don't recall falling my way as a child. And
then there's the dojo membership so she can study karate and the piano
lessons and the gym membership... and I'm home after school so she doesn't
have to trundle off to camps and after-school activities if she doesn't
want to.

This would all work better if I were able to build my business more, but I
can't get the time in between all my exercising and all my child-care
duties to get much client work done! (I need to go back on EC so I can
get the energy boost to work from 9 pm to midnight again.)
