  • I'm waiting until Friday morning to weigh in. I'm not sure what to expect in regards to weightloss this time around.

    I think I supp more than a lot of folks around here. I take Alive women's multi, D3, B-complex with added B-12(slightly anemic), magnesium, potassium, and zinc. I'm working on getting over the ick(allergies) so I have added zinc and upped D3 for a bit.

    • Blueberry et al Please remember that most of my 17 lbs was weight I gained over xmas. I was 235 on 12/24. 247.5 on 1/1 so my net loss to this point is really 4.5 lbs.

      • This is what I used to take:

        StressB + Iron (for adrenals)
        B12 (for mood)
        D3 (for mood)
        Cod Liver Oil (for mood)
        Vitamin C (for mood)
        Selenium (not sure why I take this one)
        Maca (for libido - not working)
        Iodine (to counter some of the effects of maca)
        Zinc (for libido - not working)
        5-htp (for mood)

        I have, as of today, reduced to just these:

        StressB + Iron
        B12
        D3
        Cod Liver Oil
        Vitamin C
        5-htp

        I will be adding vitex in a few days. Gotta get some first.

          • Has anyone else on HFLC noticed feeling warmer? Not feverish warmer, but less cold. Not needing a jacket at the office anymore, that sort of thing.

            • I gained 13 lbs between October 1 and January 1. I blame adjusting to hormones (kicked hormonal bc to the curb and things started surging again mid to late October and I had a hard time controlling the sugar cravings).

              Since January 2, I have lost 11 of those 13 lbs. For some reason or another, I'm up 3 lbs today, despite eating perfect macros yesterday... probably the sodium from the commercial grade bouillon I had to drink yesterday due to the lack of Herb Ox.

              Hoping to hit the 13 lbs lost mark by the end of the month, but not holding my breath. It would be nice to start February losing new weight, but since the scale read 191 this morning and my all time Primal low is 184, that's 7 lbs to lose before Friday... probably not going to happen.

                Don't shirk yourself! What you lost is still damn awesome! Seventeen or 4.5 lb, it's still big enough to be a small dog.

                  • Supplements:
                    Multiple vitamin
                    Calcium
                    Vitamin B complex
                    Vitamin C
                    Vitamin D3
                    Vitamin E

                    Potasium

                    I tested low on B and D so I take mega doses. I am lactose intolerant so I take mega calcium.

                    I'm going to be adding 5HTP and Vitex as soon as I remember to buy it!

                      • Still holding at 178 Started Jan. 1 at 185. Seven pounds in a month is a good loss for me - so I'm a happy girl! But need to bump it up a bit. I just added LHTs to my daily workout. So, I walk 2.25 miles then lift on the bowflex - but nothing extreme - just some arm stuff for now.

                        Sounds like everyone is doing pretty good! We're lightening to the load on the earth!

                        • I haven't been working out much at all just because of all the illness and stuff I've been going through. I'm going to walk on my lunch at work today. I do want to do a workout tomorrow just because my body is saying move now!

                          • Slow and steady wins the race. My goal for the next 2 weeks is to get to 220 for that 30 lb loss since August. Then I'll be under my old highest weight and on the way to my next goal of 200.

                            Thanks for the pep talk about MFP, Jenn! I am under the weather, took the day off, still having several cups of kill everything and ginger tea a day, and will begin tracking again when I am in better health, tomorrow or Thursday.

                            • Thanks, that cheered me up a bit, still feel envious of those 4.5lb in a week but 100 in a year sound good when you put it like that

                              • Down to 126.8 this morning. 2 lb is still "wobble weight" (within daily fluctuation range), but I'll take what I can get.
