Primal 90% from sept. 2012
looking to alter ulcerative colitis
Holy cow, I am down another pound overnight after a fast day. I think it is because I didn't overeat yesterday (<2100 cal) and again, not sneaking in extra UDs. After 17 lbs dropped (in 52 days), I am starting to visually see the changes in my body now.
Made a delicious 424 kcal veggie scramble with some soft goat cheese on top for the DD meal today. I think I will eat some fresh fruit for a snack with the remaining calories.
Elkay~ you are on fire!
Well my maintainence day turned into a full up day, they actually made real food at the bbq , not hot dogs and hamburgers like I was expecting. I had some some carne asada topped with guacamole,a drumstick ,and fruit. I figured it to be almost 1000 cals which would have been perfect but by the time we got home at 6 I was very hungry .so I just heated up some chili I made the other day with my "corn" bread muffins and even later snacked on ham, cream cheese and pickle roll ups. And guess what? I'm actually down .4 from yesterday lol! It's nice to know two UD's in a row won't decimate my progress! Today is my dd so that means I won't weigh till Friday and that will complete my 2nd month on ADF. weighed 205.4 this morning, which is only .8 up since my weigh in so I'm thinking I might actually squeak in a small loss this week. We shall see.
High weight: 255 lbs
Start weight 1/26/13: 233 lbs
Current 5/24/13: 204 lbs
Not a bad dd for me yesterday, but a huge fatigue/tearful drain in the early afternoon. Amazing how a few bites of food though fixes that. Overall, just under 1,000 cals, not as ace as planned, but with the 3 dd planned this week, I am thinking it is a good amount of calories. I think my strategy of having my dd as 'treat foods' days instead of eating minuscule amounts of proper food works wonders for me. It is much easier than when I did it with Ultimate Diet and basically stuck to tuna, egg whites and shiritake noodles.
Slept like a log, but had to down a can of tuna before going lifting this morning.
One downside of the DDs is slow recovery. My body was very sore and stiff yesterday after Sunday hap-ki-do class and gardening, and still sore this morning, despite mucho stretching. Skipped a run yesterday, just walked & edged in the garden. I know I have to add steam room/cold water on the DDs, but gardening is REALLY fast-paced now....

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
Hi everyone, I'm back (remember me, lol). As I said before I left on my mini vacation, I never really fully got back on track after my vacation a couple of weeks ago. I've been slowly eating more and more sugary carbs and that has definitely affected my appetite supression. I think I did reasonably well eating (as in not eating to excess and trying to make reasonable food choices given the situation) but I can definitely tell the cravings are back, though not very strong.
I got back late Sunday night and Sunday and Monday were probably my "worst" days food wise. So, I've decided to do LCHF for a couple of days to get the appetite supression back under control, then on Thursday I have a doctor's appointment which requires a fast, so I'll make that my first down day. I'm even going to try to schedule another appointment for that day so that I won't have time to eat until later in the day, lol.
Another goal this week is to really focus on getting more exercise into my days. I've really been lazy about that and I definitely need the combo of diet and exercise to lose weight. My doctor will be horrified when she sees me on Thursday, lol.
