In your account settings, did you change your start date? That can prevent you from seeing earlier logs, but if you change your start date back to when you actually started, you should be able to see them.  But that shouldn't have affected your profile start date, I don't think.

Or accept that you won't know exactly how much you burned.

I haven't done that workout, but I'm guessing "calisthenics" would give you an estimate.

My sister used to drink 2-3 diet cokes a day. She cut out soda and that really kick started her weight loss. Within 1.5 months, she had lost 8 pounds. She then started to watch what she ate, exercise and lost another 15.

I used to drink 1-2 diet cokes a day.

I stopped drinking them.

My weight didn't change.

Sodium was only 2827 mg., not really all that high. I probably have that much anyway. But that's me personally, it could bother someone else.

But you eat more than 1600 calories a day, right? And you are getting a good portion of those calories from foods that have higher water content than chips.

I logged 400g of Nacho Cheese Doritos and the analysis said:

Carbs 48.6% Good, Protein 5.7% Too Low, Fat 44.9% High, Sat Fat- Good, Sodium High, and Fiber 14g Low. Total calories 1979. I won't go in to vitamins and minerals.

Would I lose weight eating just this every day? YES, I'd have a 500+ daily deficit. 

Would I be healthy? NO, I wouldn't be getting the right nutrients.

Would I be happy? NO, I'd be hungry.

Agree, but I'd add that your water retention would be through the roof, likely obscuring any fat loss that was happening.

That's very odd - almost sounds like a bug with your account, rather than a system problem (since it's working fine for me).

Maybe try using the contact link at the bottom of the page, and see if a site tech can help? I don't know how often they visit the forums.

I have multiple levels of privacy for JEs, so there are some JEs that some friends on CC can see, but others can't. So to some people, it might look like I don't have any JEs.

If you go to your friends' profile pages, do they show available JEs?

Pav and nebi, that's interesting. I've never considered using one term for the entire area. I wonder if that works easier for girls than boys.

Boys home in on their equipment like there's a damn magnet on it pretty early on. And want it named. And then ask you "where's your penis?" and when you repeat the question (as toddler parents are trained to do), they open up their legs and say "There it is!"

Yeah, I mean bum also means diaper in our world right now. There's so many more interesting things in the world right now. (at least in her mind)

Thankfully, this isn't the most interesting thing to him right now.

But I am pretty sure nobody in chat wants to talk about all the different kinds of diggers there are. And even if they do, I don't.

I had a 3 year old who could tell you the make and model of cars by what wheels he saw. I tell you, boy brains are weird.

Seriously.

For the past few months, he's loved his magnetic drawing pad, but he wants us to draw for him. All trucks/cars, all the time. The latest has been things like "Help draw... Grandma's car pretending to be an excavator truck."

kev and trh are just confirming my gut decision to only address the question to the women.

Question for the moms of girls:  What do you call your girl's privates?

For our son, we are going with "penis", and skipping any nicknames. Which has worked fine, although it's led to some hilarity regarding whether mama has one too (he insists I must have one). So we want to give him the alternative word that applies for women. I grew up saying vagina, but technically, that's not really the equivalent to penis. Vulva would be more accurate, I think, but ... who says vulva?

He sadly never said what I could do to help it get better, he just suggested things I need to do to stop it getting worse. He was already running behind on his clinic appointments so I couldnt sit and have a chat about it to him:( . X

Yes, you could. You have to advocate for yourself. You deserve to get complete answers.

Your doctor is busy, and if he sees that you aren't going to push for the time that should be allotted to you, he is going to move on to another patient. You can either let that happen, or insist on getting his help.

Sounds like your friend is a follower of bro-science. I wouldn't take him seriously.

A mod deleted my reply, I had said in another comment that I was quoting a blog, I'm done commenting now. You're all just trying to find SOMETHING to bash me on.

You said that in an entirely different thread, within a different forum.

I just asked how big the effing bowl was lady.  Reasonable question to ask when what you put in it was 2 tbs of this and 2 tbs of that.   

Yeah, it sounds like it would end up being about 2 bites. Which, sure, means it's low calorie. But two bites of most things are low calorie. I wouldn't consider it a treat... and it doesn't sound appetizing. Kinda defeats the purpose.

A few in that list have changed their name or created a new account for privacy reasons (hence not saying outright who they are).

CD and hata don't come 'round much any more. I haven't seen peaches on here in ages.

Weight Loss opinion on this diet? Feb 14 2015

No, because it would be difficult to eat enough calories eating only fruit, or only vegetables. You'd get full before you ate enough calories. That's what the diet is built on - not eating enough food.

Stop trying to find quick fixes, and do this the right way.
