    Fat 2 Fit - One Woman's Journey

    • Yep, my boobs have fallen off, but I don't care because they're worthless
      anyway and get in the way!

      Jen, that sounds like a lovely new user name.. However, I think I could probably
      get down to 28lbs and never see the damn things.

      Ah well, I'm over it anyway, just stuck with the user name, but it's all good.

      Rae- wow, that's crazy!

      Today I had no TIME for food, so I had shot one at 6:30, then I had to go to school
      for my work day (my kids' school) so did another shot at 11:45. Then I had to go
      deliver our stupid tax stuff to the CPA at 115, which is usually the time I EAT,
      but couldn't, so did an olive oil shot, drove there, came back, then BACK to school
      to pick up Thing One and Thing Two, and now just ate at 3pm.

      But what I'm getting at, is that I must have guts of steel cuz all that oil didn't do
      a damn thing.. well, in the bathroom department.

      So I'm sorry you're having a tough go of it RaeVynn!

      I have nothing new to report. Still holding onto ovulation bloat, though, I did
      put some pants on today that used to cut me in half, and they fit, and they are
      LOOSE. Thought they were my husbands by mistake, but nope, they're mine.

      Still have had them on all day and they're STILL loose (yanno how some pants
      get tighter as the day goes on.....).

      So whatever.

        When I think about how I was at 170 a few months ago, I can't believe it.
        You went from 170 to 152 by doing the shangri la diet?

        • I was up a pound this morning. I should know better than to eat the }%%#~ popcorn in the movie. Funny I was sorry about the popcorn, but not the real butter.

          After walking 7-8 miles yesterday, I slept like a baby. Woke at 6, coffee w heavy cream. Shot of MCT at 7 and walked to work. Decaf in the office with half and half. Generally starved at 10. Not today. Munched 1/2 ounce dried unsweetened coconut chips.

          Ate lunch at 1. Guacamole and carnitas. Only ate 1/2 the carnitas and put it in the fridge for tomorrow so maybe ate 3 oz. Munched the other 1/2 oz coconut in the afternoon.

          I was not scheuled to walk the 5k home because I'm doing two 5k's tomorrow, morning and evening. But when I got outside, I WANTED to because it was warm and gorgeous and the lake was shimmering all sexy like. Got home, opened the fridge, looked around. Nope, not a lick of hunger or interest in anything. I'll have 3 oz of Tri Tip later if I get hungry. I hope o because tht will put me at. 1030 calories for the day.

          Whatever it is, I'm sticking with the MTC!

              Yup. Actually, to 150, a couple days ago, but that was coming off a flu so I'm not sure I can chalk that one up on the SLD scoreboard. But yeah, when I started back in early December I was at 170.

              • I lost another lb, for a total of 4 so far. I think I started doing this 8 days ago. So far I've only done one CO shot a day, I just can't find the time to work that second one in!

                • Woohoo, dropped back down to 151.4 this morning... let's hope this isn't an omen of another long "bouncy hover" period. Keep going down, scale number! No bouncy! Bouncy bad!

                  • Oh ugh. Tried taking my first plain CO this morning. I put the tbsp in my mouth, hoping it would melt quickly. It didn't. So, I tried chewing it. Cue gagging and gagging and more gagging. I finally was able to get it down, but it REALLY did not want to go. Rather, my body didn't want to take it. I've been up since 2:30 to get to work at 4am. So, I guess it did pretty awesome things considering I am just now getting hungry at 11am. So, despite the fact that my body rejected it in cold form, I think it still worked pretty well. I'm going to melt it next time. Or get some MCT oil. I can't do that again.

                      • Making a run to the health food store this weekend. I'll get some while Im there. I like the effects, but not the reaction this morning. Maybe it'll be easier in shot form. I thought about warming it up, but I didnt want any weird looks lol!

                        • Yeah, I started out being able to chew and swallow the CO, and within a few weeks I was gagging. Something about chewing up a solid piece of fat just got real gross real fast.

                          I love knocking back my shot of liquid oil. Super easy, over in seconds.

                          • From the first of Feb until today (the 12th), I have lost 6 lbs. That's pretty impressive to me!

                            I've also started another course of probiotics/enzymes, in hopes of improving my body's fat metabolism, and to ensure that "bad" flora gets completely overrun by "good" flora.

                              • I tried to do a CO shot this afternoon, but I just couldn't do it. Decided I can control what I am eating enough to hold off until I get the MCT. Some days I already struggle to make 1000 calories. Yesterday I was the most successful at 1189.

                                I will say, for my first hunger of the day I finished up a packaged of center cut bacon. I had five pieces and I was STUFFED. Center cut bacon is thin sliced and about 4 inches long. No fatty ends. Gets very crispy and yummy. So, that's all I've had today because I have yet to be hungry. Mostly, I am fighting back the urge to GACK due to the copper poop taste in my mouth. EFF YOU KETOSIS! Oh... right... you help me lose weight. It's ok, continue to poop in my mouth.
