Unfortunately I have not found the magic combo to even get it off yet (well at least since child birth-18yrs ago). But I will (actually I feel like I have, here, even if it takes a bit of tweaking).
      I get upset sometimes when I think I'm "doing this all wrong" and it just doesn't work. I am a slow/hard loser. I am keeping at it this time though because I FEEL so much better and I know I'm getting a lot of nutrition. Plus I've got my Fitbit now and it's making me OCD about hitting those 10000 steps a day. I weighed this morning for the first time in six days and hadn't lost anything....and was rather depressed til I got a look at myself while I was dressing. My stomach is definitely happier - I'm getting more of a soft rounded Buddha belly rather than the three rolls of fat belly. So something good is happening there.

            • I truly am working at not thinking about weight loss at all. I am really focused on the process right now, been disappointed too many times with the scale. I go to see the doc in the beginning of March, I will weigh in the morning before I go so I can compare my scale to hers. I will not weigh before then. I will also measure that day as well.

              It drives me absolutely insane knowing that I have spent the last 40 years counting calories in one way or another, adhering to the Calories in/Calories out dogma, to no avail. Even knowing that it didn't work, I kept trying some version wondering the time what the heck was wrong with me. All the crazy shit I have done to try to lose weight and now I would give a lot just to be as fat as I thought I was in high school.

              p.s. all of your measurements need to go into the MFP. My memory is that you can add measurements if you want to as well. But really get yourselves a measurement baseline.

              • I think I'm going to shoot today all to heck. TOM must be very close. I'm hungry and cranky!!! I ate a bunch of chocolate (low carb high fat chocolate)... I have eaten too much protein already and I know I"ll be eating more.. there is going to be cheese involved. Grrrr I can stay under calorie but I don't know if I can keep my macros right today without injuring someone.

                The dietary changes must be making my hormones extra bad!

                • try a cup of bouillon before you eat. I am not suggesting that it will keep you from going over, but it is likely to make you feel better. I was skeptical but it worked. I used one of the double cubes in about 12 oz of water. It was pretty salty but it hit the spot. Some days just don't go the way you want them to, best to let it go and move on.

                  • If I eat exactly what I've planned to eat today (this includes the 2T oil as per SLD) I will be at 1221. In order to loose any weight we calculated that I would need to eat 1200. When I look at the food it doesn't seem like that much. I'm sure I could manage this today but I don't think I could maintain that for very long. Maybe I should give up the oil and that would give me 220 calories I could use for real food.

                      The stupid thing for me is I CAN lose weight on CW, eating bread and processed crap. I just don't want to this time because it all comes right back. I spoke to my doc a couple weeks ago about the whole thing and I need to go get bloodwork done to check my thyroid and hormones. Thyroid might be finally low enough to do something about....I've been borderline for years. (Childbearing did a whammy on me.) And I take a low dose of generic Efexor and I just might be the 1% who's weight is affected by it. Just gonna keep on with it.

                      Yes...wouldn't it be lovely to be as "fat" as we were back in the day?

                      • Maybe try that first UF. Are you feeling like you need any more food?

                        • UF, unless the 2T really seem to be helping, I would consider exchanging them for food. or at least one of them.

                          Oh, Shelli, in my 40 years of dieting, I have lost many pounds, many many, through an SAD. But never more than about 40 at a time and it always came back with 10 more. It is just not sustainable because I feel like crap the whole time. I have had a variety of blood tests. I honestly believe I have just not found the combo that will allow my body to release the fat and let me feel good enough to sustain it. Now this is definitely one in which I feel good enough to sustain it, if it would just be kind enough to let the body release the fat, it will be perfect!

                            This is true for me too.
                            although I have lost, but slowly so far, so will be interesting to see if it keeps up. I do feel great, so that is the most important thing.

                            • Ok I didn't do too bad.. I mean I went way over on protein, I'm sitting at 112 grams after supper, but net carbs are under and I still have calories left. I had crust less pizza, basically stir fry onions, mushrooms and olives and then top with mozzarella and put in the oven. Then pour some sauce in your plate and put on top.. I thought I would eat more but got full quick. So I added the individual items in approximate amounts. I just really want protein today. I've been sore from walking, walking some hills, some extremely steep ones at times. So I'm hoping I will use more protein. Who knows, maybe I need it. Anyway, I sure feel better.

                                Well I have been hungry sometimes in the evening and I was waking up hungry most morning. I'll see how today goes because it looks like I will have 77% fat, a little low on carbs and protein. So if I don't feel hungry today then it could be that I haven't had the macros right before. Still I think I would prefer getting those 220 calories from my fat bars or from some cheese; I wouldn't feel so deprived.
