  • Went camping last week and didn't stay on plan at all... up 3.6 lbs... OOPS!
  • I think I'm good on the electrolytes. I can really tell when I'm starting to lag, and I'm not having any of the usual symptoms. I was using the active NUUN tablets to supplement my mag/cal, potassium and sodium and within a couple days I was retaining water so bad I had to cut back... I tend to eat a pretty high sodium…
  • WOO HOO!! Nice work... That's the year I was born... haha!!
  • SW: 301.7 lbs Week 12: 285.9 lbs Week 13: 284.8 lbs (-1.1 lbs) GW: 175 lbs Total Lost: 16.9 lbs Tweaking my macros really helped this week. BMs are finally more regular too now that I've cut out the almonds and increased my fat. YES! LOL I'm STILL not back down to where I was 3 weeks ago though... Inflammation in my lower…
  • I'd LOVE to be vegetarian, or pescetarian at a minimum at some point... I was veg till I was 8 yo, then again for three years in my early 30's and my body thrives on a veg diet. I found this keto vegetarian YT channel you might find interesting... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIhtdk44pqKAxsHFXeTBojw
  • I have PCOS so wonky periods are my "normal", but this last month was REALLY unusual, even for me. LOL I have a feeling my auntie is right... Hers started around my age too, and I know my mom started menopause in her early 40's too... I feel too young to be going through the change ALREADY!! My skin is really changing too.…
  • Tuesdays are my marathon days... as in I cram ALL my bookkeeping, deposits, work related stuff into a single day, plus we do our one big weekly grocery shop after work... I usually have a couple meet ups with friends and run any errands... Today I'm on a mission to find a zoodler and I'm going to buy another pregnancy…
  • TONS of fat does the trick... I don't worry about calories for a few days and just eat loads of fat and a good amount of protein.
  • Can I go camping with you??! We always keep it super simple and inexpensive...
  • Me too... But forest fires make me sadder so I'll deal...
  • Hot dogs are a no-go for me with the campfire ban... I like the idea of some meat roll ups though. I could put cream cheese and pickles in them, maybe some bacon... That's funny @samanthaluangphixay about instagram stalking! LOL I try not to eat ryvita most days, when I do it's usually because I've had an extra low carb…
  • I get that kind of pain from food allergies. I recently was having major digestive issues, lots of pain, constipation, cramping, bloating, etc... Basically an imodium advertisement... I cut out nuts and voila! No more pain... Turns out I'm quite allergic to almonds. The last time I had pain like this for months it turned…
  • I turned 40 this year and decided it was time to make a major change to how I've been living... I tried every diet BUT LC for the past 17 years and just kept gaining weight, so this is my new life... It isn't going the way I hoped, but I'm committed and damn it, my body WILL get healthier.
  • Kimchi is AWESOME!! Just had some with my Bavarian cheddar smokies for dinner... The other two globs are sauerkraut and Dijon mustard...
  • I have a question... What food/meal so you really miss now that doesn't have a low carb substitution? Mine is these vegetarian quesadillas I used to make with mashed yam, spicy refried beans, and cheese in gluten free tortillas, topped with sour cream, avocado and hot sauce...
  • OMG!! When I was teenager we always listened to dramatized Louis L'Amour books on tape on all our youth group road trips! They were awesome!!!
  • Welcome! This is by far the best community of low carbers I've found online. :smiley:
  • We haven't had cable in years... It's Netflix or YouTube at our house...
  • Oh man, I'm addicted to documentaries! I should have majored in sociology...
  • Gilmore Girls. I've watched the whole series twice... I can't WAIT for the new release in the fall... SQUEEEEEEE!!
  • LOL! I love Seinfeld, Friends, Fraser, Mad About You, Big Bang Theory, How I met your mother... pretty much all sitcoms in that vein... and can't stand the office or P&R or anything that style... I have a theory that I'm missing the awkward humour gene... I try to like it but it's not funny to me at all, yet so many people…
  • I bought kimchi because of this thread and now I don't know what to eat it with. LOL Suggestions? We're having BBQ'd smokies this week, so I thought I'd try it on those... any other ideas?
  • Week 11: 286.1 lbs Week 12: 285.9 lbs (-0.2 lbs) Total Lost: -15.8 lbs Ya'll... Look at that! I've lost over 10 lbs since starting this thread just over 2 months ago!! (jetsamflotsam was my old username/account).
  • Today is rest day. I was walking everyday, but my old SI joint injury has been flaring up worse and worse, so now I'm walking every other day to give it time to calm down before the next walk... Tuesday, Thursday and Sundays...
  • Person I'd like to meet... Maybe one of my ancestors who decided to immigrate to Canada. I'd love to have a good ol' chat with them and find out why they moved, what their family was like, etc.. I'm absolutely fascinated with genealogy. I took boxing lessons in a real boxing club for a few months. It was across the street…
  • So true, but it can also be terrifying while you're figuring it all out... When you come from a "diet mentality" background, you're used to someone handing you a "tried and true" specific plan, and then just following that blindly (at least as long as you can until you realize it's not working!!). I'm 12 weeks in…
  • YES!! One of the techniques that cured my binge eating disorder 10 years ago was implementing intuitive eating - eat only when hungry, stop when satiated (not "full"). (The hormone leptin controls hunger and satiety cues, btw... Lots of cool recent research on that.) Problem was, with my jacked up PCOS insulin resistant…
  • Whew!! I knew I could depend on you all to sort me out! So basically I should carry on with what I'm doing and fuhgettabout the micro-detail macro nazis.
  • Club soda settles my tummy...
