welcome aboard! i've done low carb before and while i liked it and felt great when i was doing it, it was very slow-going for me ... i tend to fare better with a more balanced approach, like ww or similar. if it works well for you, GO FOR IT, just remember to get your body the nutrients it needs (take vitamins, eat veggies, drink plenty of water, etc.) ... so many people mistake low-carb to mean just eat meat meat bacon meat and nothing else. LOL

as for diet pills, i don't see why they should be taboo, but i'm personally terrified of them. seems they always find out that they cause some kind of medical problem and then they get yanked off the market (then again, i don't really like taking ANY kind of medication)! if you do use them, just pay attention to your body, and certainly discontinue use if you notice any weird symptoms/side effects.

best of luck and welcome! these girls are a great support system!

Personally I wouldn't use diet pills but if they're safe, and I assume they are or you wouldn't use them, and they help curb your appetite why not?

KLC77 I was always looking for someone to work out with then I worked out with a friend and to be honest it can be good and can be bad, it is good bc the days you dont wan to work out hopefully they will motivate you to go, but on days they are late or not in the mood or do not have the same goal as you they may hold you back. I now find it much easier and I work a lot harder when I do it myself. Do you want to workout with someone to get you to workout each day, if so use this forum to help. I log into this one and the one have you exercised today and I feel so much better when I can type something I did. Since I have not worked out in a couple of days it has been driving me nuts to read them and no log anything.
I agree that working out with someone could be good or bad. I really need someone to just make me do it. Ha, I guess that would be a trainer (or myself). lol I will try just logging in here everyday and reporting what I've done. Hopefully that will be enough. With BL3 I was in it to win it so I was really motivated to get to the gym. Since the only chance I have of winning this is if all of you break the rules and I win by default, I've been slacking a little this week. I really need to set some goals for myself and post them here so that I am accountable for them. And maybe some rewards like Morgan...

Oh, I definitely can't eat just "meat and more meat". I eat mostly veggies plus chicken breast and some turkey, and also low fat cheese. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE bread and that's what really packs on the lbs for me (I heard somewhere that it's a sign that you are at higher risk of type II diabetes. - great...!) And the bad thing is that when I eat bread, I crave more of it. But when I don't have any, I stop wanting it, which makes for a great cycle breaker.

But the first couple weeks of a low carb diet always make me really cranky. I feel bad for my FI, but he'll appreciate it when I look my best on the beach!

yeah those first few weeks while you're trying to break the carb-dependence really do stink! the headaches are the worst (but maybe i got them mostly from giving up caffeine at the same time)!

So I tried the Turbo Jam and I do like it. I also have my Wii fit, and I have been trying to get rid of the pop and drink water and eat healthier. I think that I am doing alright. I should probably do my exercises now since my son is asleep.

 

Oh yeah, I will see about doing the before and after pics too today since I haven't had a chance yet.

I went to the gym this morning - too bad the opening person was almost an HOUR late!!! SUCKED!! I only managed to get in 35 minutes on the stairs before I had to leave for work. My DH is going running with me after work though - that should help.

 

I just had a yummie sandwich: Dave's Killer Bread with 1 laughing cow light cheese spread on it and cucumbers. The bread is high calorie (120 a slice) but it is SO filling and good! It's the only bread I eat anymore.

i heart that laughing cow cheese love.gif. i often use 1 wedge in place of cream cheese, or spread it on crackers (love it on triscuits). it's so good! i never think to put cukes on a sandwich ... sounds delish tho!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
