    @Skyleen75 I guess that “magic shot” (LOL) is magic for people with insulin resistance and/or diabetes. As someone diagnosed with IR 30-ish years ago, mainstream doctors thought it wasn’t a “thing,” it would have been a godsend but like gastric sleeve or bypass or a “simple diet,” it is a TOOL. My daughter has used it for 6 weeks and lost 24 pounds but her carb cravings are gone. Even with tools we have to DO THE WORK. 🤷‍♀️ And I assume that eventually people are expected to go off the shot and they need to be able to cope. I totally empathize!

    @quiltingjaine I take a once per week shot for my type 2 called Trulicity. It does not contain the drug Semaglutide which can cause weight loss. It does state that you may even lose up to 10 pounds while taking it. My girlfried takes it for her diabetes. In the last 90 days she has lost 15 pounds, and 10 pounds in the 3 months prior to that. After the 25 pound weight loss, she still takes shot but has been taken off her Metformin diabetes medications. Me, on the other hand, I have gained weight while taking it. It doesn't help me feel full when I eat. And it's not helping my diabetic numbers either. My weight has went up and so has my daily glucose numbers. Every time I take the shot I get an allergic reaction at the injection site. Rash and severe lump. My friend says the allergy is why it doesn't work the same for me. Of course, I've reported it to my doctor but she has only increased the dose as my numbers have gotten worse. She has also referred me to an endocrinologist but I can't get in until Feb. My doctor says my insurance won't cover anything with Semagludtide. I may just call my insurance company myself. I need something that will work better on my glucose numbers. Any weight loss side effects would be a plus, especially for my diabetes. But changing habits are always key and cannot be substituted. I do understand that 100%. In the end, I think we all want healthier lifestyles and I agree that this is just a TOOL, not an answer. But I would be willing to try it for all the reasons stated above.

    Feeling better today after starting the covid pill yesterday-not sure why we can't just have those on hand for when we test positive.[/quote]

    My theory is that if we had them on hand, we would take them and not get tested and not keep the positive numbers up.

    DD, DGD, and infant DGGS flew to a wedding last weekend. On the flight on Friday night they had beverage and snack service, on the flight back on Sunday there was none “due to COVID.” Same airline. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for almost 5 years with amazing results!

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    SW RND 203 122.5
    10/24 122.0 Today was my art quilt group. I left the house at 8:30 and got home around 2:30. Lots of sitting and driving!
    10/25 122.0 My glucose and ketones were great this morning considering we had McRib and fries for dinner! DH read they’re back - maybe for the last time and wanted to see if they were as good as the first time - decades ago at the Riverboat McDonald’s in St. Louis. They’re not.
    10/26 122.5 Went to brunch at Omelet House, ate 1 slice of sourdough and some fried potatoes as well as about 1/4 of my 6 egg Chile verde omelet.
    10/27 123.0
    10/28 123.0 I was 123.5 when I got up but after 6 cups of coffee and TMI x 2, I reweighed. That’s not something I usually do but I felt lighter.
    10/29 123.5 Had pot roast and veg (no potatoes for me) for the first time in months. Not DH’s favorite-he tolerates it on occasion because I like it. ❤️ Doctor wasn’t happy with my BP, med asst said “those cuffs aren’t very accurate” before she even checked my BP which is ALWAYS up in office however, I showed her that it was within a couple of points of their machine and my BP is good when not there. He said I had only taken the one med for “a couple of days” but I had taken it for about 2 YEARS (he initiated it) when I realized it was the cause of my vertigo. Added another med which I wasn’t able to pick up when I was headed home from errands in the afternoon. Sorry for the rant - not checking BP now!!!
    10/30 123.0 Took new BP med last night. Not excited about possible side effects especially since the pharmacist said because I had a previous allergic reaction to a CCB I need to watch for it. Plus “peripheral swelling” is on the list.Sorry for another rant. This whole thing is making my BP go up!!!!

    10/27 - 176.0 :( No biggie. Just have to cut back a little.

    64 yr young F, 5ft 4 Round 203 (my 135th). As always, thank you. @QuiltingJaine.

    All but 0.2 pound of holiday weight gain gone. I'd like to lose a pound this round.
    No binges, keep within calories & macros.

    Achieved goal weigh of 125lb in summer 2016 by losing 66lb and then gradually gained between 7 and 11 since then & didn't want to gain any more, It's took me 75 rounds to achieve my under 130 target; back to maintenance again!! But then I crept up again, so need to get back under 130. Healthy life style has to be a permanent way of life.

    10/24 137.2 – 7.81 miles walked.

    exercise.png
    10/25 137.2 – 10.05 miles walked yesterday.
    10/26 135.6 – wow!! was ready for a whoosh, but didn't expect this much,
    ; stepped on the scales 4 times to check & each time weighed exactly the same. 5.65 miles walked.
    10/27 138 – again stepped on the scales 4 times ! Still, stayed in calories & macros yesterday & walked 14.48 miles yesterday. Clothes are feeling looser, I am back in smaller jeans & I can see a change in the mirror, so I'm not concerned.
    10/28 136.6 – and another bounce down! I think I'm trampolining at the moment!
    10/29 136.6 – stability !! Expected a bounce up as went out for Indian with friends; chose tandori salmon (not served with sauce but with a a side salad), had quarter of a portion of pilau rice and less than a quarter of naan bread. Enjoyed it and felt satisfied. 6 miles walked.
    10/30 DNW -stayed over at DS's, taking DGD to Gymnastic World Championships, 75 mile trip each way & then 70 mile journey back home afterwards, so a long day, mostly sitting & prohibited to take any own food into the arena building – a challlenge!

    exercise.png

    10/31 138 - very high carb day yesterday & no movement, but totally worth it, 4 year old DGD enjoyed the event so much, she does gymnastics herself & was totally immersed in the event!

    Awesome! Thank you as always for posting @quiltingjaine! These challenges really keep me motivated and you are a great group of people! ❤️
    This will be my 14th round and I have lost a total of 28.9 pounds so far while doing these challenges! This challenge brings me the most success and is much easier by breaking up my goals into smaller chunks.
    I have one very solid goal, to be in Onederland by 12/17/22, after that, let the weight come off how it does.

    SW: 250
    UGW: under 150 ish
    RSW: 202.3
    RGW: 202 ish

    I’m hoping to at least maintain this round. I have some pretty nerve-wracking medical procedures coming up and I’ve been eating my emotions.

    10/24: 202.3
    10/25: 202.3
    10/26: 203
    I feel like I’ve been so close to Onederland for FOREVER but it’s really just that I’ve been thinking about it forever and I need to chill.
    10/27: 204.6 🙁
    10/28: 204.6 🙁
    10/29: DNW
    My breast biopsies came back as one benign, one malignant. I will have surgery in the next 3-4 weeks. I will have more of a plan in place next week. My only option is to move forward!
    10/30: DNW
    Not at home, no scales
    10/31: 203.6
    Ugh.

    Day/Weight/Comment
    10/24 150.2 I have a feeling todays drop is from being dehydrated. I stayed within calories yesterday, and did a 1mile brisk walk.
    10/25 149.6 Stayed within calories.
    10/26 149.4 Stayed within calories, but had too much sodium. Roasted pumpkins seeds yesterday. Boy those are hard to resist! :)
    10/27 149.2
    10/28 149.0 Baby steps, but I'll take it :)
    10/29 149.2
    10/30 149.2
    10/31 DNW I know my weight will be up today. Covered in hives from an antibiobic I was taking for a sinus infection, so I'm also taking an antihistamine.

    @deepwoodslady Don’t know if you saw the PM I sent but DD#1 is using Mounjero. Lost 24# in 6 weeks. It has curbed her cravings and appetite in general. It works differently in different people but was also created to help diabetics.

    We ALL have good rounds and bad but that is part of life. Don’t stay away, stay accountable. We don’t judge, we support.-Jpv,2/13/19

    What we need to succeed is a sustainable way of eating, not a DIET we go on and off.

    People say keto/LCHF isn’t sustainable. I’ve been doing it for almost 5 years with amazing results!

    This is NOT A DIET. It’s a LIFESTYLE.

    Up and down - just riding the waves of life. 🌊 🏄‍♀️ (My new mantra-3/19/22)

    SW RND 203 122.5
    10/24 122.0 Today was my art quilt group. I left the house at 8:30 and got home around 2:30. Lots of sitting and driving!
    10/25 122.0 My glucose and ketones were great this morning considering we had McRib and fries for dinner! DH read they’re back - maybe for the last time and wanted to see if they were as good as the first time - decades ago at the Riverboat McDonald’s in St. Louis. They’re not.
    10/26 122.5 Went to brunch at Omelet House, ate 1 slice of sourdough and some fried potatoes as well as about 1/4 of my 6 egg Chile verde omelet.
    10/27 123.0
    10/28 123.0 I was 123.5 when I got up but after 6 cups of coffee and TMI x 2, I reweighed. That’s not something I usually do but I felt lighter.
    10/29 123.5 Had pot roast and veg (no potatoes for me) for the first time in months. Not DH’s favorite-he tolerates it on occasion because I like it. ❤️ Doctor wasn’t happy with my BP, med asst said “those cuffs aren’t very accurate” before she even checked my BP which is ALWAYS up in office however, I showed her that it was within a couple of points of their machine and my BP is good when not there. He said I had only taken the one med for “a couple of days” but I had taken it for about 2 YEARS (he initiated it) when I realized it was the cause of my vertigo. Added another med which I wasn’t able to pick up when I was headed home from errands in the afternoon. Sorry for the rant - not checking BP now!!!
    10/30 123.0 Took new BP med last night. Not excited about possible side effects especially since the pharmacist said because I had a previous allergic reaction to a CCB I need to watch for it. Plus “peripheral swelling” is on the list.Sorry for another rant. This whole thing is making my BP go up!!!!
    10/31 123.5 Great Greek yesterday, ate half a pita. Had a headache yesterday afternoon and it was worse when I woke up this morning. Not my “normal” arthritis headache but may be gone now. Awake at 4:30AM
