  • Where is ONTHEBAYO?

    OnTheBayo used to be such an active and interesting part of our little community! I have been wondering for a while where he has gone!
    Anybody any news?

      Looks under a rock... OTB?

      Nope! Just a mid day snack.

      I wonder where he's gotten himself off to...
      Once you learn that you create your own reality and that you are fully responsible for your life, you can begin to see the world as it is and then you realize the limitless possibilities.

            Well, well, well. I was perusing the forum to see how many of the "old timers" are posting as I've seen a steady decline of some of my favorite guys/girls. (I go back to June last year and now suddenly am a Junion Member or something.)

            Indeed, kuno checked on me and this is what I told her:

            "I'm OK, such as it is taking care of Old Mom.

            Even before the new MDA format, I was finding less and less substance on the forum. The same questions, the same thoughts. I guess I was part of that last June, although I tried to be informed before I asked a question. To top it off, I think the new format sucks. The topic line is quite truncated, there are far fewer postings on the front page necessitating checking out page two, and the search function is now officially Double Suck. Since I have plenty of ongoing frustrations, I decided to not make the list longer.

            I don't know if it's just not hitting the right days, but I've not seen some of the old timers I respect like Serial Sinner and Tarlach, either.

            After plateauing at 235-240 since August, I took the plunge and have been zero-carbing for three days now. My motivation came from reading GCBC; he didn't advocate ZC, but reading the science of it all just moved me to get desperate. I think my body was hanging onto calories because I had been on slight starvation, one of the things I learned from GCBC. I noticed episodes of light headedness the first two days, I presume low blood sugar as my body was scrambling for glucose/ketones.....hopefully from fat. I'm also now experiencing no hunger for many, many hours if I'm honest with myself. But that old "eatertainment" or taste bud boredom pops up all the time. So I snack on meat or other animal product, but I think even that is diminishing. But it is a terribly boring diet. Anyone who pretends otherwise has thoroughly brainwashed themselves. "


            I still often think of sharing something diet/nutrition/lifestyle related, but then remind myself of reducing frustrations.

            Maybe I'll post a few things that peeps might find useful and step away again.

              I'm not crazy about the new format, either, but I'm getting the hang of it. Hell, I just figured out yesterday how to post a new topic.

                        I do not feel as welcome and happy here anymore as I used to when I joined last May, but that is the "price" we have to pay when communities grow. I used to be so much more active because it was new, exciting and fresh. With getting used to the principles of the BP and its execution that excitement has diminished a little.

                        I still enjoy reading about others trails and tribulations and sharing ideas on here.
                        With the change in layout, the community had to change with it. I am not sure whether it is good or bad...it just is.

                        Thanks for getting in touch OTB and just know that you are not forgotten on here...hehe...sounds a bit dramatic...doesn't it? Anyway, I really do like reading your posts and Tarlachs and SerialSinners etc. It would not be the same without you all!

                          I'm new to the forum, but I do keep an eye open for you, Maranne.

                          Glad you checked on On the Bayou - I was wondering as well.

                            OTB, the resident contrarian! You know I say that with the utmost affection, of course, as I was usually arguing in a similar vein. I'm glad to hear that things are good with you.

                            I lost interest this winter, as well; the consistent recycling of old topics into new threads left little of interest on the front page. Seriously, how many times do we need a thread devoted to constipation? There must be at least twenty or more by now. I haven't been around much, so I don't know if the new FAQs on this format have curbed that at all.

                              As has happened before, e.g. to SoG and others, I feel I need to stop reading and writing and just LIVE it. The things I'm doing wrong - I know what they are. The questions I ask are the same, and obviously have no easy answer.
                              I feel my path is changing slightly, doors are opening, and I need to be bold and step away from the comfort zone of the LCD screen....
