Just found this delightful group. I need to be accountable to keep me motivated.
Goal for September is to: lose a total of 15 pounds for my first month since I lose a lot of water when I first begin.
My exercise is limited due to my knee problem. I do go to the pool in my community 3 times per week.
It appears that I’m older than you ladies at 67, but I’m having problems staying on my low carb lifestyle long term. In 2016, at 324 lbs, I began a new lifestyle of eating low carb, and for 20 months I was true to this new way of eating, lost 96 lbs, and my doctors were thrilled with the results. We relocated from Dallas to Florida in 2017 and was able to keep it off, although not losing anymore than the 96. About March 2019 my eating spiraled out of control & I’m back up to 288. Low carb has been the only plan that has worked for me and as long as my routine blood work remains good this is the plan for me. In 2006, I had a gastric bypass at 420 lbs. list to 288 and gained back up to 324 before I began my low carb/Keto in May 2016. Now I need a knee replacement and must lose to 200 lbs to have the surgery. Appetite control is my biggest challenge. I wish you all success in meeting your goals and look forward to our mutual support!

It was a rough weekend, but I'm getting back on track. I just feel like I'm not doing it in the healthiest way. I was busy and mostly forgot to eat on Monday, then Tuesday I saved a bunch of my calories for a drink with my husband before bed. Today I'm starving after 3 days of not eating enough, and I'm worried that I'm going to cave. I have already had breakfast and lunch, and I'm thinking about what else I can eat that won't send me over a caloric cliff. I am considering a bowl of chicken noodle soup from Panera, because even with the bread that comes on the side, it's only about 280 calories. Of course, I could get an apple instead, but what I want is something more satisfying. Trying to stay the course! Any suggestions for a snack I can grab for this afternoon that won't leave me still feeling hungry, but will also feel somewhat satisfying?
