But because it cost so much I'm going to use it all up!

    I hate all the accronyms too........ TTC means trying to concieve. There is a thread someplace about accronyms - but its very long and you have to read through all of them to learn them all. Its easier just to ask as they come up! I prefer to use real words. Once in while I will use SAD or CW. But everyone seems to know what those mean.

    I stepped on the scale today and was down 1.8 pounds from yesterday. That was encouraging! I added some things to my supplements - maybe they are doing the trick.
    You go girl! Got to love those sudden drops. Although they are usually followed by a couple of up days for me, those ups are at least lower than the previous ones. So it's all good.

    My mother said she only got "warm" flashes. And I've never gone through any sweaty icky spells. I also haven't had a period in several months, so it seems weird to me that it would suddenly start now. But hormones being what they are, weird seems to be normal when they start shifting. Like my doctor says, "Anything can happen."

After physical exertion, I feel like a space heater for an hour or more, just radiating heat.

    Has anybody else experienced this? Do you think it's hormonal or metabolistic?
    I totally have experienced this. I'm 47 and I do not think it's menopausal at all. It started with the diet change and has subsided over time, but I still sometimes get it. At first it was quite a bit like hot flashes (I actually have experience with real hot flashes because I got them after my hysterectomy until my ovaries started working again.) I would get these hot flashes at random times, sometimes radiating from within me and sometimes just in my feet! They would come up whenever I tried something new and subside as I got used to the new thing. So the first time was when I tried eating sweet potatoes for lunch and only eat grains on the weekend. Hot flashes! Then they subsided and came on again when I started taking Vitamin D supplements. Eventually I got used to the Vitamin D and the hot flashes have subsided into feeling a little warm in bed a few hours after taking them. I get the same warmth taking iodoral before bed and also eating something like a grass-fed steak for dinner. Warmth radiates from within. It might be metabolic, it might be thermogenesis from the food, but I like to believe it's just my body thanking me for doing something healthy. Ah, finally, we're getting some vitamins and steak! Thank you!

    LOL! I like the idea of your body thanking you. It's going to be interesting to see if this continues with me. I'm not breaking into sweats or getting all red in the face so whether it's one or the other it's not really cramping my style. I just remove a layer or two until it passes.

    Just had to share... my old jeans fit! Haven't worn them since before DS was born (2 in a few weeks). Very exciting to be headed in the right direction without being starving all the time and not having much time to work out.

    why does this keep getting reposted? I posted these exact words when this thread was first started because Bosnic was being an ass. I've seen it pop up 3 times since under different user names. SPAM?

    Congrats! Good feelings for sure.

    Weirdest kind of spam I've ever seen. I've noticed it in several threads in this forum. I'm trying to figure out what the spammer gets out of it. Maybe a bunch of valid-seeming posts to make them look more credible when they start the spam? Or to get us to check their profile where unspecified cyberhorrors await us? No idea.

    I have a motivation drawer. I buy my clothes a wee bit too tight for me, and stack them in order of tightness in my drawer. Every time I see a new number on the scale (before the decimal), I get to reward myself with a new item from the drawer. When the weight loss was faster, I had to drop more, but now it's for each and every pound. Not too expensive really, because I buy them on special or at thrift stores, and most of them are things I would have had to buy eventually anyway, like the pair of black pants that are waiting for me about three or four pounds from now. I've no more that fit, so there's a great motivation right there. I want those pants!

    I don't understand people who "reward" themselves for weight loss with sundaes or something similar. Clothes make so much more sense...
