~Misguided_Angel's Place~

Counting carbs/calories is a drag. Obsessive scale stepping is a recipe for despair. If you want to count something, "days on habit" is a much better metric. Checking off days on a calendar would do just fine, but if you do it here you get accountability and support. Here's how. Start a new topic in this forum called (say) "Your Name Daily Check In." Then every N day post a "reply" to that topic as to whether you stayed on habit. A simple "<font color="green">SUCCESS</font>" or "<font color="red">FAILURE</font>" (or your preferred euphemism if that's too harsh) is sufficient, but obviously you're welcome to write more if you want. On S-days just register that you're taking an S-day. You don't have to do this forever, just until you're confident you've built the habit. Feel free to check in weekly or monthly or sporadically instead of daily. Feel free also to track other habits besides No-s (I'm keeping this forum under No-s because that's what the vast majority are using it for). See also my <a href="/habitcal/">HabitCal</a> tool for another more formal (and perhaps complementary) way to track habits.

Well today is day 1, I am here in Iraq so the only meal left in dinner.....I dont know what elese to post in here for now except I have done well today none of the esses including "starches" this is for 2 reasons:

1, I just decided to do this way of eating this afternoon
2, I have been following Low Carb for the last 8 months and am scared to add Starches back in to my diet.....

One of the main reasons I want to quit Low Carb is because I feel I need starches and for the last few months my hair has been falling out :( everyone fo course says it is normal on LC but I like my hair darn it! This way of eating seems so simple, and indeed I know it is. I just dont know how to add foods back in without gaining weight back (I lost 31# on LC)

I moved from Oklahoma when I was 16 and am just now going back home, yeah its been ahwile :) Turns out to be one of the best decisions I ever made, I have gotten to travle to some great places (and some not so great) but over all it has been a wonderful experience I never thought I would get to travel Europe.... Although I wont say I will be there for the long haul....All my family lives there so it will be nice to be home.

Thursday 23D SUCCESS - I am off today (Friday) and took yesterday and Today as my weekend days since my schedule is so wierded out right now. When I get home next month I will do regular weeks. But I will make sure it is 5 days in between my weekends :)

I cant believe I have only 8 days left before I get to leave WOW it seems the time is flying by now and I cant wait to go!

Post by misguided_angel » Mon Feb 27, 2006 10:58 am

Well yesterday was a SUCCESS, however today I bombed...I think I will have to wait until I am at home to join the 21 day club. I will jump in on the "dark side" conversation :) I dont happen to think that LC is really bad its when you go really extreme with it that it messes you up. Most people "tweak" their menu's until they are eating next to nothing. I am also one of those people that lost weight really fast (31 pounds) over 3 minths and since then my hair has been falling out. This is why I decided to add different foods in.

I am also a scale-aholic :( I can not go 1 day without weighing it does get irritating sometimes as I tend to let what the scale says rule how my day goes. I wont have a choice soon though while my husband and I are traveling I wont have a scale. I am trying to be careful as I do not want to gain back all that I lost on low carb and I am also trying to not get discouraged with the weight gain on the scale since starting No S. So far it hasnt been too big of a gain and I am hoping it will go back down as the days go by.

I have 5 more days left here in Iraq and I have been really busy lately hence no posting in my daily check in.....ellen, I dropped by your "hole" LMAO....couldnt help myself. Wow you have been busy you already have 2 pages .....you are doing great by the way :)


Carb Asylum.......lol

BTW- this may be too much info for some of you...but doing LC it is very normal to be constipated ALL the time and as a result I was getting hooked on laxatives....I havent had to use them since doing No S and I am tellign myself that outweighs the weight gain......so far its only 4 pounds...not too bad yet

Oh my god Angel!
Being constipated all the time is so toxic to our system..
You would be better off taking a year to lose 15 or 20 lbs, than set yourself up for future serious illnesses like irritable bowel syndrome and the dreaded colon cancer.. or anthing that has to do with keeping garbage in our systems..
Please.. Keep on "moving!"....

(Oh man, now I really am galvanized against LC!)

Yes, the plusses definitely out weight the minuses...
Keep it up and hope you get back soon!
Peace,

LOL,

My email wasnt supposed to make you more against LC.....I know being constantly constipated isnt good for me, thats one of the reasons I am trying to lighten up a little. LC does have its uses, it helped me to lose most of the weight I wanted to lose, yes I know it can be at a price, like me being constipated and losing about 1/3 of my hair....ugh.....I have noticed it is growing back though and there hasnt been any permanent damage from the laxatives...I know there could have been if I had kept on.

I am trying my best to stick with No S it is hard when you have done another plan for so long. I find myself mostly eating LC still....it takes awhile to stick with a new plan I know hence the "21 day club"

thank you for being so nice and all your information :)

LOL I KNEW you couldn't resist using THAT word!

I do have to agree with you regarding the whole...er... "movement" thing.....it's been great! (oh my, that sounds sooo wrong on sooo many levels! lol)

Sorry to hear that you "bombed" yesterday.......it's only ONE DAY! Pick yourself up - move on to the next day.....one meal at a time if necessary.

The next two weeks are going to be so hectic for you between finishing up what you're doing and then all that traveling -- take it one day at a time. I know, I know....it's still gonna bug the crap out of you. (no pun intended - lol) Do the best you can.....things will even themselves out once you're stateside (and then home again).

Besides, NoS is going to make traveling so much easier than if you were still LCing ~~ just think of all the Arby's between here and there! (Not the best meal choices, I know......but more importantly NO GUILT!)

Now, CHIN UP! We both know you've got TONS of determination!

:D

You're gonna LOVE IT! Just make sure you have something to LOOK AT while you're on it -- trust me on this! My blank white basement wall is sooooo boring! LOL

Even when we get the exercise room done, I plan to make sure the treadmill is facing (and in line with) the window in there, but I'll STILL only get to watch the grass grow - :( Once the weather gets nicer around here, I will be going back to walking outside. ::thumbs up!::

(BTW, DH DID get the waterbed drained, but the doofus decided to do it on Monday afternoon so of course, with his schedule, there's been no further progress...... :( It's a start though! :D )

Afternoon, you girls.

Good luck with the move, Angel. Personally, I always found moving back 'home' to be much harder than moving away. Somehow I always expect that everything will be familiar and exactly the same, and manage to forget that everybodys lives have moved on quite neatly without me there for the last year or so. I swear, the 'reverse culture shock' is ALWAYS worse than the culture shock you get from moving to somewhere new. I have no doubt that it will all work out in the end for you though. It always does. :)

MADE IT!!!!

Post by misguided_angel » Tue Mar 07, 2006 3:00 am

Lil Mouse :)

we finally made it home!!!! Well back to the USA will not be home for a few more days....we were fliying here or there for 2 days straight...it was so hectic and then again not really...know what I mean? We did alot fo waiting or sitting on the planes/helicopters...we almost didnt make it out of Iraq I am so glad everything worked out and we were able to get here on time. the airline lost our luggage....grrrrrr....we have been back to the USA 3 times in the last 10 years and every single time they have lost our luggage. So I cant go turn in all of my military gear until our luggage comes in. Right now we are at my sister in laws in atlanta waiting for word on our luggage. We will stay here tonight and probably tomorrow night too unless our luggage turns up I cant turn my gear in because it was one of the bags lost.

anywho, I will try to get on YM tomorrow morning while SIL is at work. Just wanted to let you knwo we made it safely.

If you are, I hope you're getting "settled in" very nicely!

Girl, you are going to be soooo busy for awhile - just don't forget to take care of yourself, too! :)

See you back here once the dust settles............. ;)

Hey there little missy! ::wave::

Just wanted to pop in to say HI! Sorry that I haven't been available to chat with you on YIM all week - I DID get your offline messages, tho! ;) So glad you liked the card.

I can only IMAGINE how busy you must be right now! {{hugs}}

Hey! Did your treadmill arrive yet? I just restarted using mine this past week and am 5/5 for the week! ::yay:: I can't WAIT until this weather warms up a bit more - I'm DEFINITELY going to start heading outside as soon as I can!

I saw my first robin today.......was pretty excited about it until I mentioned it to the girls at the office -- they looked at me and said, "Where have YOU been? The robins have been back for awhile now!"" :shock: LOL Yeah, I do need to get out more! :roll: LOL

Anyhooo....I didn't want your check-in to get lost over on Page 2.....Hopefully we'll get a chance to chat soon! 8)

Have a GREAT weekend!

You'd better get back "here" soon, little missy! Don't make me come a-lookin' for ya! :twisted: Oklahoma is a LOT closer than Iraq! LOL

Hope you're doing well..........I'm having "Banter Buddy" withdrawals over here! :cry:
