Weight Loss has anyone lost fat on thighs? Sep 04 2009

For me, thighs and butt were the first place I lost.  Now, if I could only get the fat off my waist and chest...

What they said: peanut butter, nuts, and olive oil; the calories will pile up fast!

Mocha with Jack Daniel's.  Standard for weekends and camping trips.

But obviously not lo-cal.

Fish only smells "fishy" when it's spoiling.  Your choices are wide open, as long as you buy fresh fish.  My personal favorites are swordfish and halibut.

I am a man who walks alone
And when Im walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when its dark

Fear of the Dark....

YAY!!  The first Maiden reference I've come across on CC!!

The Lounge Dream Interpretation Sep 03 2009
16:35 (UTC)

Not to hijack the thread, and I certainly don't believe that dreams "mean" anything (other than random synapse firings influenced by memories and experiences), but I've always heard that when you "die" in a dream, you die in real life.  I'm here to announce that this is absolutely NOT true, as I have died 3 times in dreams, and twice in the last week!

Once, as a kid, I was torn to pieces by a vicious ringtail.

Last Sunday, I was on an underwater salvage operation, my scuba regulator failed, and I took a deep breath of seawater before I could swim to the surface.

And Tuesday night, I received a rifle bullet through the skull.  Gene Hackman was the shooter.  It was a solid hit, and though I clamped my hand over the entry wound to stop the bloodflow, I didn't make it to the hospital.

Just thought I'd share.


The Lounge How long did you date before moving in with your SO? Sep 01 2009
22:30 (UTC)

With Almost-Wife (1984), it was 8 months.  We lived together for almost 3-1/2 years.

With Wife #1 (1988), 3 months.  We were married for 8 years, but I don't think we spent more than 6 months at a time living together!

With Wife #2 (1998), it was a full year.  We've been married for 10 years +.   

So obviously, there's no pattern- it just depends on the 2 individuals and how they feel about things.

Motivation It's going to take did you stay motivated at the beginning? Aug 28 2009

Original Post by caverlady:

I didn't have any trouble staying motivated in the beginning because I was consistently losing weight.  I'm have trouble staying motivated not because nothing's really happened all summer.  Everything I do results in the same thing.  No weight loss on ly staying the same.

 I second this view.  I've been at it for 10 months and have lost 52 pounds.  But now, instead of 6 or 8 pounds lost each month, I'm lucky if it's 2!  It was easy to stay motivated when the weight was falling off; I was also allowed to eat quite a bit more (2400 cal/day) when I started.  Now that I've lost a bunch of weight, I have to stay below 1800 cal/day, and that is EXTREMELY difficult for me! 

The Lounge Tell me that I'm overreacting Aug 27 2009
17:31 (UTC)

After I married my 1st wife, she found a box of my old "memories"- pix of ex-girlfriends, old letters, even my jr.hi yearbooks.  She tossed all of it, saying that none of it mattered anymore.  20+ years later, I still feel sick when I think about it, and it's one of many reasons that I hate that bitch. 

Yes, you would be overreacting to get upset about it or to take any action against it. 

And your bf will hate you.    

Weight Loss Sugar SUGAR SUGAR!!!! Aug 26 2009

It shouldn't really matter.  As far as I'm concerned, I don't pay attention to the actual amount of any one component as long as I'm eating a balanced diet and not going over my calorie budget.  I still eat all the foods I used to eat, just in smaller amounts. 

Weight Loss Sugar SUGAR SUGAR!!!! Aug 26 2009

It may be that the 9 or 6 teaspoons of sugar refers to processed sugar.  I believe the natural sugars found in fruits and vegetables are nutritionally different from the processed sugar.

The Lounge Do you look younger, older, or just right? Aug 26 2009

I got carded regularly until I was in my mid-30s.  I am now 46 and people consistently think I'm at least 10 years younger.  Not a problem for me.

Calorie Count CC Thumbs Up? Aug 26 2009

As far as I know, your target date reacts to your weight log entries, so if you haven't logged a weight loss, your target date will stretch into the future.  You didn't mention if you had lost any weight...

Weight Loss Frustrated, Confused, Ready to Quit Aug 17 2009
21:56 (UTC)

Why would you NOT want to eat carbs?  Carbs are a very necessary part of a healthy diet.

You also say you've gained 4 lbs.  In how much time?  It's not unusual to gain a few pounds the first few weeks after starting a new "diet."

As dolphinclick stated, you would need to provide more info.

Maybe not, but the only way to do a job right is with the correct tools.


Yes, but I'm already crazy enough with all of the counting I do at 23.  Adding a scale into everything will not be healthy for me.

I'm sorry, but that just sounds insane to me.  How can you possibly keep track of caloric intake if you have no idea how much your food weighs?!
