I've been low-carbing (in years past too) for a while now, and am consistently gaining weight by the 1/10#. Can't figure out why, like many folks I see posting.... when I was younger low-carb worked like a dream. I do know that I only burn 2,000 calories/day, regardless of whether or not go I to the gym, and whether or not I do cardio. I've worn a BodyBugg for over a year now, so I'm confident in my burn numbers. My next fat assault will be to count my calories, as well as carbs. I know all the books about ALL of the low-carb nutrition plans say "don't count calories", but so far as I can tell - for me - that doesn't work. Cream, butter, cheese and coconut oil add up pretty quick. I've also been trying to go gluten-free, and waiting (not very patiently) for the Juliain Bakery GF LC Trinity Bread....thanks for letting me rant, I'm just so depressed at the weight gain. I will keep working on it!!! Sherry

Personal Carb limit: 75-80 Net Carbs

Today: I've not tracked yet, but I might be over my limit already, as I'm having difficulty getting back to low carb.

I'm in on the bootcamp : )

No numbers again today, although I think I did well. I was pretty low on my carb limits after lunch and went to a buffet for supper where I ate too much, but it was all meat and veggies.

Maintaining is hard but worth it!

Oh, Maria...I caved today. Last day of school, para pro's birthday, AND a retirement party all today. So...lets just say I had 2 pieces of pizza and a maple peanut cluster. Not good at all. So...tomorrow back to reality - back to healthy!!

Ugh...can't start today - overdid it on the fruit while at the campground! One week of school left, then I'll be able to focus more on ME...I'll try to catch it the next time around!

I considered it last time, but I don't follow a specific plan (didn't know if that was a problem) and the water drinking would get me right off the bat (I don't do well w/ my water) - although that SHOULD be a reason for me to join it, right : ) I'll check it out next time around ... which would be when?

Today, I'm not tracking my dinner. We had my daughter's birthday party at my parents' campground. I ate too much - not like binging, but just too much. However, it was too much fruit and veggies. I skipped the cake, and other misc crap that was lying around, so I'm not going to fret. Back on track tomorrow.

Blueberries are a good low carb choice for fruit... many plans eliminate fruit in the induction phase but add them back as you progress.

I make them w/ frozen Cool Whip and diet Root Beer. I eat one nearly every night....sometimes track it, sometimes not ; ) Cool Whip has 2 carbs in 2T, so I don't think it's too bad. However, I'm giving it up. I was down another pound this AM...

And Maria...don't worry about returning my 2 pounds I lost - I don't care to have them back. Just pass them on to someone else LOL!!

I've been without my beloved coolwhip fakey float for the last 3 nights, as I ran out. And now I'm down 2 pounds. My first loss in weeks. Wonder if that has been stalling me?

i kept up to you Holly... also sipped 3 glasses over 6 hours. But my carbs were also in my limit...just. Of course I had them all in the evening at a friends home for dinner... limited my day to protein shakes only in preparation.
