Slim for life day 5

Sunday, September 01, 2013

Well I was down 5.5 lbs yesterday. I found some gluten free soy free aspartame/sucralose free ans sugar free protein bars to use in place of the unhealthy slim snacks. They have double he protoen at 20 grams an 18 grams of fiber. Quest bars. I tried the chocolate and cannot stomach that one but there is a coconut cashew that I can defiantly do on a daily basis with a cup of coffee.

The center I am going to is going to exchange out the bars for a soy free drink so I am not out the 20 bucks.

I have a bit if a headache but do not think I did as much water as I needed yesterday. I have a lot of energy so that is a good thing.

I cannot believe how much my knees and feet hurt. I am actually grateful I made this mistake or I never would have known how good my joint had actually been feeling.

Now I am looking at going into nutritional medicine. I am looking at online programs.

Everything happens for a reason!

Happy Sunday!


Slim 4 life

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Well. I could not get my head and willpower in the game. I remembered when I did MRC weightloss several years ago they had a doctor not door who did the hcg part. Of course it was expensive so I chose not to do it.

I went to slim for life, was easily persuaded to commit to an 18 week plan. I decided I would do the hcg with it just to see and I am going to use it for the first 4 weeks since I already have it mixed.

Yesterday is the first day I was on the low cal plan (high for hcg - probably around 1200 or more) and added in all of the required elements and today my joints are so inflamed i can barely walk and am at this time soaking in a tub.

I am not angry with the center. I chose things ( very limited) that were gluten free but decided that short term all of the artificial sweetners and soy would be ok. Silly me!!

Well, I now know that soy and all of the other crap defiantly sets off my inflammatory response.

Luckily,I did not let them talk me into the 3700 dollars of products that would get me thru the program and only purchased a few boxes of things and supplements/far burners, etc.

I have decided that I will stop the snacks that have soy but stick with everything else for a few days and see how I feel. I am sure I can sell the boxes of bars to someone online who does not have inflammatory issues. They certainly taste wonderful!!

I am going to keep going to the center three days a week for weigh ins - which will help me keep on track. And I am going to keep up with the metabolizing stuff since it did not bother me during the prep phase.

I do not think they are an evil program as i read online(aAFTER i signed on the dotted line. Just be careful and do not cave under the pressure to buy everything. I am going to look for substitutes online that are comparable to their supplements.

I forked out about 900 dollars which is hard to swallow. But more so is the return to a world of daily pain. I had not realized how much my pain had diminished until I added all of the artificial crap back intoy diet.

So I am going to stick to the eating plan (other than the protein bars), take the vitamins, go in daily for weigh ins. And do an official detox diet from my doctor in a month or so.

Please, please tell your friends with chronic pain/ fibromyalgia to cut out artificial sweetners, soy, and gluten. THEY are horrible.

I am now consideri f going back for my nutricional medicine degree to supplement (no pun intended!) my physical therapy work with chronic pain clients.


feeling hungry but

Friday, August 16, 2013

not feeling the urge to stuff myself which is good. i rememer one of the things i leaned in my first sucetssful round was that i will not die if I feel hungry and it is ok to drink some water, relax, and distract myself. Kinda gives a feeling of power to overcome that empty belly feeling

    I have to say I have been a little hungry, but not tummy rumbling hungry. And sometimes I find I am just thirsty. but I have had some celery at times when it is not lunch or dinner and it seems to help and no gain.

Keep up the good work!

So hard

Thursday, August 15, 2013

I am having a tough time sticking to the low cal portion. I have not been able to complete a round since i had a success a few years Sgo.Rather than give up, I am going to do around 1000 calories for the week until my appetite shrinks a bit then get down to 500 by next week. I am losing a week, but it it either try this or cave completely. I am down 3 lbs which I think is just from adding so much water!

Keeping my fingers crossed and my water bottle close!!'

    I agree with spiritseeker. go ahead and eat more calories but make it only in your protein section. or add a tiny bit of coconut oil to keep you satiated.
I also find that when I feel hungry, if I drink a hot liquid it satisfies me. my favorite is herbal Lemon Ginger tea with a bit of stevia. there are a ton of herbal teas to chose from. or try fat free chicken broth with your meal.

also I don't follow the plan exactly to the T. I eat my fruit for lunch at breakfast. then I am not starving for lunch. (an apple with stevia and cinnamon is awesome)

And if I find that at 3 pm I am hungry, I will eat my fruit for dinner then. strawberries with stevia. emoticon

We can do this!! you did it before, you just have to push to do it AGAIN!!!

Starting at my heaviest I have been in a few years.

Forgot to pick up fat free creamer and a few other items and nervous about my trip o the store. Going to wait until after my lunch and hopefully I will be full enough to avoid caving in day 1.
