I am so frustrated for you! Not sure what is going on, other than perhaps you are already at a healthy weight? Or something is sticky with your metabolism, and it is being a stubborn son-of-a-gun? Evil or Very Mad

Glad though that your fam is tight, you know? That counts for (almost) everything.

Pleased to hear about the girls you must be so proud.

3lb down in a year is better than 3 up but I can see how it may feel like not a lot.

It's a positive place to be in. If you managed 3 down again this year thats nearly half a stone, If I lost 3 a year now without feeling deprived I'd be pretty pleased.

Hi Linda, just to add my sympathy for your frustrating year. I think I agree with Soprano that in the grand scheme of things, losing 3lb is a success, and considering your amazing weight loss in the past, it’s perhaps bound to slow down...I know none of us really know what’s going on in there (in our bodies I mean), and whether we’ve done something to sabotage our success, so it can be bewildering and annoying... but let’s face it, most women are GAINING a little weight every year, or losing loads and putting more back on. So you’re still ahead of the game, still winning, still on track, and if you think of how big three pound-bags of sugar are, or think of three pounds of butter, it’s a HUGE amount. Like, one of my own buttocks. Almost. 😉🤣 It’s just those degrees on the scale look so darned small!

But I can imagine how you feel, after making so much sustained effort. I imagine the really tough thing is not really knowing WHY it’s like this. sending you hugs. X
PS great news about the girls getting As!

Thanks you guys! You’re right about it not being so bad. I had a 4 lb whoosh yesterday so I just think I need to have a little more patience with this holiday weight. I’m down 20 lbs or so from 1.5 years ago and I’ve kept off 55 lbs so that’s the bigger picture.

I’m really taking Kayla’s advice to make your plan your own and to make it enjoyable. I’m looking at the stuff I really don’t want to give up and the stuff that’s easier for me to give up and coming up with a plan that is doable and hopefully effective. I left my fasting fb groups (except Kayla’s) to just kind of quiet all the noise and figure out what’s going to work for me. We shall see!

Tomorrow the girls go back to school-ugh! Not looking forward to getting up early and being a chauffeur again. Oh well. I’m glad we had a nice break.

155.5 lbs (new high tech scale coming tomorrow ).

Soy latte
Chips and guacamole, tacos, 2 glasses of wine
Split a couple desserts with family

Exercise: 30 mins yoga (doing a 30 day yoga with Adrienne on YouTube. )

That is a great idea about leaving other fasting groups. I swear I need to delete Instagram or stop following the clean eating nutritionists on there. It just messes with your head when you have so many different views going on in your mind.

Your weight loss stats are incredible, Linda! Smile

Also back to chauffeuring! I just want to put a plug in for those of us who are stay at home Moms. It chills me to find out about the problems of children whose parents both worked. I think those car conversations are so important -- even at 6:45 AM!

In my house, yes, I am a chauffeur - but how often do ordinary passengers harrass the chauffer? Laughing

Ooooh, do tell more about the high-tech scale? Does it measure body fat?

Yeah it’s definitely been helping square!

Awww, I’m glad I’m not the only chauffeur! Nice to know I’m not alone. That’s true Kathleen those conversations can be important but I definitely think kids can thrive with two working parents. So many possible ways to parent well.

Auto, lol and I’ve yet to get a tip even though I provide snacks and let them choose the music. *Humph*

oh I got the YUNMAI scale and it’s pretty cool. It syncs with your phone app and tells you body fat, bone mass etc. Not sure how accurate it is but it is supposed to be one of the more accurate scales. I was nervous to get on it because for the last couple of years I’ve been using a scale that only tells you how much you’ve lost or gained. So I’m always having to do math in my head to figure out my weight. I was worried that it would say I actually weighed way more than I though but actually it was about 1 lb less.

Soooo it said my body fat was about 22% which is in the healthy range and actually for my age I shouldn’t really go much lower. My BMI is still high though so I guess I just need to lose some weight but not a lot of fat. I guess just keeping the proportions the same is key. Interesting. It definitely made me feel better though. My visceral fat was in a good range as well so that’s good.

Now I’m just confused on what my weight goal should be and what my plan should be. I swear it changes everyday. I tried for 23/1 today but just got too hungry and ended up at about 21/3. I’m pmsing so it’s to be expected I guess. The problem is I’ve gotten away from clean fasting and the stuff I put in my tea is making me hungry. I don’t really want to go back to black tea though. It’s just not enjoyable. I wish I could have cream but it gives me reflux. Cream doesn’t make me hungry probably because it’s not spiking my insulin. See my conundrum?

Well I guess I have to take it day by day for now...

156.2 lbs
22/3

Soy latte w/ stevia x2
Crackers and cheese, grapes, coconut water
2 pieces of sweet potato, ricotta and thyme bake
Several pieces of chocolate

Dry day-yay! Oh and Doc has decided to go vegetarian so I’ve joined him and the girls already were. We are officially a vegetarian household!

Exercise: yoga 30 mins, walked 3 miles

Hello Linda
I have been on the NoS routine 8 years now but I strayed from this site. Like you I have maintained a large weight loss (45 lbs). I am catching back up with the people on this site and noticed you lost significantly more weight the past year or two
Any words of wisdom on getting on the weight loss track again? Maintenance is important but I really need to lose more weight rather than stop short of a normal BMI like I did.

Linda - that body fat percentage is amazing! I just looked up the desirable ranges, and girl - you are rocking that!

22% body fat is excellent. BMI is really only a guide. You have done brilliant!

She sure has! Linda - I wish that you had had that scale a year ago to see how far you've come.

Thank you guys!!

It’s consistently been 22% or under so I feel pretty confident with this number. It’s crazy how much better I feel about myself now. It’s like I finally have permission to feel okay. Getting on the scale is actually a positive experience these days despite the fact that my weight is up (pms).

Of course I’d love for the scale to go down but it doesn’t feel so urgent or important.

Anyway, the journey continues!

PS Jean, need to think about that answer. I’ve been successful but struggled quite a bit at the same time.

Sick with an ear infection. So happy it’s friday so I can rest up a bit and Rosebud my high maintenance child is at a sleepover so extra bonus.

I’ve been doing 19/5 which is super doable and enjoyable but I’m having trouble feeling satiated on a purely vegetarian diet. I think I need to get some tofu.

Falling asleep.

And find some satiating tofu, lol.

Welcome back! I did go check your blog to make sure I wasn't missing too much and so I saw your one post over there. Smile

Maybe the ear infection and the current sickness are the same thing - but it moved and never went away? Sorry you are not feeling well. Sad

You know how you said you don't need to lose fat but you just need to lose weight? Like, I'm not sure what more you lose then! Because you certainly don't want to lose muscle or bone ..... Have you taken your measurements much during your IF journey? Even if you haven't yet, maybe you can start now? And then you can see if any tweaks or methods you do make a difference? Have you talked about any interest in more serious weight-lifting? That could be a rad new outreach for you - a sexy woman powerlifter that talks about social issues while she signs autographs.
