    Goals for me:
    Drink my 8 glasses of water
    IF for at least 14 hours and preferably 18 daily
    Stay at or below my 25g net carb goal
    Make sure my protein hits approx 70g BUT not much more
    Get at least one day a week of non-work related exercise

    By doing the above I am hoping to:
    Lose the last 7 stupid pounds OR at least lose enough inches to get back into my slimmest clothes. I took my measurements (w, h, l thigh, r thigh) today before brunch and will be tracking that every week. CW 139.4

    I have surgery on my ankle mid-month, so that may set me back a bit in the exercise category and may keep inflammation weight on me while I heal. We'll see....

    Well since I failed last month I'll give this one a go. Again. Lol.

    So here are my daily goals -

    1. Exercise daily
    2. Don't obsess over calories,
    3. But don't stuff myself silly...
    3. Eat healthy, nutrient-dense meals - and those veggies!
    4. Drink enough fluids
    5. Weekly goal - Meal prep for the week
    6. Stay away from the sugary stuff!

    I'm taking a more Paleo approach currently because I do a lot better in the gym with the extra carbs from fruit and such.

    On the other hand, my blood sugar tends to do summersaults. But I'm taking a supplement for that. Not permanently, but as a crutch because I'm trying to lose 2lb this month.

    I can't be sure if it's the extra carbs and if it's because I'm having energy problems and my body is just wanting quick energy. Oh well. That's my biggest challenge. Controlling the cravings and sticking to my goals. We'll see if I do better this month. :smile:

    As I have not been strict low carb lately I will lose the first 5lbs of water in the first 3 days. So I am setting a goal of 10lbs total loss for the month. 10000 steps/day, net carbs under 20gm. I may raise up to 50gm carbs in December if this month goes well at getting back on track.

    Start weight: 170lbs

    When tempted with my favourite foods (cake, chocolates) I try to think about the old English phrase "A minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips" , i

    That kind of works for me when tempted!

    I'm lucky in that (1) most holiday meals, especially the glutinous mess that is the typical Thanksgiving dinner, never particularly appealed to me even in my pre-LC days; and (2) last year, after six months of strict LC, I suffered for 24 hours after merely nibbling on some super-rich brownie batter; lesson learned. I sat on our front porch for four hours yesterday evening in my witch's costume handing out chocolate treats without a single urge to sample. Even the smell was off-putting. Kinda like Bacardi rum, a substance which has not touched these lips since that fraternity party 50 years ago.

    My goals are to:
    --casually log food, actually tabulating carbs/protein if I get three pounds over goal. This has worked for the past year.
    -- commit to three days a week of cardio, three days of resistance. This is a tough one.
    --worry about trivial issues less. This is the toughest one of all. Someone other than myself appears to be in charge of my brain. Whoever she is, she can be a real nut job.

    That is a harder balance than it sounds like, isn't it.
    I've not logged since Friday... I think I did ok until I hit the nuts... Sigh...the nuts...will I never learn?

    Okay. I'm going to make this one easy for me. I'd love to see myself in the 180'S with no binges for November, and Thanksgiving is not an excuse to do so. Happy November!

    November 1 check-in -> starting the month at 219 (lost 4 lbs in October!) and have already done 2 of my 5 workouts this week.

    The really good news is that we had enough sugar in the house yesterday to put an elephant into a sugar coma - candy apples, 3 kinds of homemade cookies, cup cakes and Halloween candy - and I didn't eat a single bit of it! I did eat too much last night but it was mainly brisquit, cheese and stuffed jalapenos.

    So November goals.
    * Stick to my new LCHF diet keeping carbs as low as I can.
    * Stay under my 1650 daily calorie goal.
    * Exercise at least 3 days a week. Either running, lifting weights, cycling etc. Dog walking does not count!
    * Current weight is 180. I'd like to be 173 by the end of November.
    * Survive my birthday party on November 12th without going crazy!
    * And stop putting myself down!
