Now, do you feel better about the tape worms?

I wonder how hard it is to get thru NZ customs with a tapeworm?


If there are any soccer conferences or weight training competitions in NZ, maybe KT can find out if his tape worms can pass NZ customs. If not, I can see the YouTube video headline.

I like Ace's idea. I'll branch out into making it a movie about large tape worms infesting New Zealand.

Just googled it, it would seem we have them.

Now I've read what they do, I have to ask, are they worth it?

Ahh, yes, the Chinese Tapeworm diet!!! Why didn't I think of that?

Or there's Ampu Systems - hack off an arm or a leg - you can drop 10 - 40 lbs instantly!

Or food poisoning diet. Just eat some fish or hamburger meat that's been left out at room temperature for a while - and you will be dropping the weight in no time! (Caution: may cause very uncomfortable bathroom situations). cool

The jaw wired shut technique is also quite effective, although I believe that given that opportunity I could ingest enough double chocolate malts to sustain my current weight for quite some time. I have also thought that if I could just sleep for a month I would be spot on my ideal weight.

God's Blessing,

That's funny and also interesting timing for you to post this, Say.

My dentist sent me to a specialist about 25 years ago for TMJ, for which the only cure at the time was jaw wiring. The specialist told me to come back when I had jaw clicks or headaches. Don't have headaches (KNOCK ON WOOD) but my jaw is starting to become annoying (have to try twice to open large enough to bite into a sub sandwich).

Now that you mention this, it gives me super incentive to get this eating under control and get the remaining 20 pounds OFF for good (before I go see another specialist for TMJ).

Maybe I'll check into these double chocolate malts you described. nod

I think the tapeworm sounds slightly less tortuous. I'm going for that option. Great suggestion!!!! That way I can still emotionally eat too!!!!


This year was a chocolate birthday (4 boxes and a bar)!!! Am I complaining???? And some quality chocs I had too. I still have some left (b'day yesterday)

In all honesty, I have lost a stone since new years just by stopping drinking alcohol every day.

Before you all freak out, keep in mind that a couple of glasses of wine at tea time does not make one an alcoholic. nor does anything drunk between Christmas and new years eve grin

That, Lil, is hysterical and so true. My DH has been sending me pix messages of flowers and candy all day with little love texts. I told him that I will adore all of that V-Day stuff from a distance this year. Maybe he can send a pic of champagne. ROFL

I've lost 10 lbs! And still going.....

So, now I'm at the weight I was before Christmas. crazy

But I'm doing well. I finally quit whining and did what I was supposed to - low carb, low fat, lots of veggies and lean meats, little fruit, and some yogurt. And lots of water - 64 ounces a day. I also exercise regularly. The first week was really hard. But everyone was right. After a while, the cravings lessen and go away. My stomach has shrunk. I am not hungry all the time and I don't feel the need to gorge until I'm bursting. The girl scout cookies remain on the top shelf and I don't touch them. The kids have their spaghetti and pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches, and I have my baked fish and chicken and salads. I have a lemon tree so I am always using lemons in my recipes. It's easy and good!

I got a new car (new to me, anyway)! It's a 2005 Toyota Camry, silver and very nice. It's a great addition to the family.

So, that's my update! How is everyone else doing?

Oh, not as good as it could be. I lost some weight over the spring and actually dropped a size, and I was running and eating healthy and all that. Then, right as summer started, I was playing softball and while running the bases, I fell and twisted my ankle! It swelled up pretty bad and I learned that aging sucks and injuries now take a lot longer to heal than they did twenty years ago. I'm okay now, but it took about 2 months and there for a while, when I would try to walk or do a light jog, it would swell up, then go back down, then back up, then down again.

Then September happened - it was a very stressful month and I don't handle stress well. Back in May, my middle son, who is 14, the age of stupidity in boys, got the bright idea that he and his friend should sneak out in the middle of the night and break into the Middle School. So, about 2:30 AM, the sheriff was knocking at my door. I didn't even know he was gone. Apparently, he and his friend came up with a plan to sneak over to the school, jimmy the lock to the kitchen, and steal food (you know, because I don't feed him or anything). They thought they were so smart, and put socks on their hands to not leave fingerprints, and it never occurred to them there might be a silent alarm. So, they were caught with a duffel bag full of muffins and gummy worms. In his statement to the police, they were also going to get on the roof to retrieve the tennis balls that had been thrown up there. Fortunately, the sheriff released him to my custody instead of taking him to juvenile hall. It was so stupid and would have been almost funny if not for the whole juvenile court process.

We went to court last month, and as the date got closer I was a mess. The charge was for burglary, which is a felony, and at 14 you can be tried as an adult. As usual, when I am faced with something, I research the hell out of it, and I now I know all about how the criminal justice system works in California and the United States in general, and I am now a huge critic of the process. I learned so much that is just appalling. We met with a probation officer who mailed us her recommendation which was a program called "Deferred Entry of Judgement," which was a year long program with all sorts of requirements, like electronic monitoring, drug test, DNA sample, etc. I am not saying that my son should not have consequences for his actions - I know he broke the law and there are penalties. But he really is a good kid who did something stupid, and I felt this was just way over the top. So, naturally, I was very stressed and worried what would happen. I know he is 14 and it's his first offense, but I had no idea if he would get a judge who wanted to "teach him a lesson and make an example" or what. I was assigned a public defender, who I could not get a hold of and would not return my calls, so finally I went up there and demanded to speak to her. The one I was originally assigned to was busy, and her supervisor came out and said she was taking over. She was very nice and discussed what she would ask for. I also had letters written on his behalf from my Pastor and a good friend.

So, at court, they reduced the charge to a misdemeanor, he has one month of home supervision, 6 months of probation, 28 hours of community service, and we both have to complete a counseling program on "Attitudes and Behaviors." And there's a long list of rules he has to follow - don't get suspended, obey curfew, etc. After 6 months, all is well and at 18 his record will be sealed. I had grounded him for about a month immediately following the incident, and he understands the seriousness of the situation. People at my church, my friends and family, coworkers and boss have all been wonderful and understanding, and have really been stepping up to the plate with mentoring my son and being there for us.

So, I was a very stressed out mess last month. My eating was not healthy, I started smoking again (I know, it's bad and a horrible way to handle stress - it's not permanent, but I felt like I did when I was going through my divorce), but I haven't gained my weight back.

Regarding my son - well, I feel a couple of ways about it. I do know he did wrong and should suffer consequences for it. But it also occurs to me that, 30 years ago, the cops would have just brought him home, gave him a good talking to and we may have had to pay a fine and repaired the door. What he did was a stupid, childish act, but it truly did not have malice - they did not vandalize anything and there was a cash register with money, and they did not take any of that. Today, it's a huge, scary ordeal - and expensive! I have to pay for everything - Home Supervision is $7/day (and they don't do anything), the Probation officer is $209/month, the public Defender is $319.00 (and I just assumed they were there for poor people and got their salary from the government), whatever the restitution is to the school (that hearing is next month), and the counseling program, not to mention all the fees, fines, court costs. Thank God he did not have to go to Juvenile Hall, because they charge $129.00/day. Great for low-income families! But it's okay, because I can fill out ppw regarding my ability to pay, which means they will set me up on payments (for an additional fee, of course.

I know a lot of people may disagree with me, but after all my research I feel the criminal justice system and prison industrial complex is a huge travesty in American Society. It has really opened my eyes. I don't think it occurs to most people how the system actually works (or doesn't) until it affects them personally.

Since this thread is not on a protected forum, I can't tell you the specifics but I do know first hand how difficult it is to deal with our legal system, especially if you have no money to hire a high-powered attorney when your union-provided counsel throws you under the bus. eek

Don't. Get. Me. Started.



I am an emotional eater, too and during this (and other grueling ordeals) I did gain some of my weight back....so I know that drill, too. Now the effects of the excess weight is coming back to really haunt me healthwise. Guess I'd better start taking my own advice to re-lose these pounds, eh?

Thanks for sharing, Raquel. I agree with you on most of your issues.

Ace

ETA: Congratulations on losing the size last spring. It's probably like dropping a 10-15 pound bag of potatoes so trying carrying that around, jump on the scale, and then drop the bag! That's a great feeling when you see the scale drop before your eyes! wink

Its coming up to that time of year when I eat and eat and eat.

I've just realised I managed to go food shopping and forget to buy the Christmas pies. I do however have crisps and chocolate....

Do we have ideas on reducing the seasonal overload?

Allow yourself to taste and savor anything, but only really EAT things that are worth it and/or healthy for you.

Now wait, I know this sounds impossible. But after the third or fourth bite of something delicious make yourself pause, and THINK about if it is truly serving you to eat that. Do you even want/need more? If not, pitch it. If you feel like you are still actually HUNGRY, then mindfully eat something that will satisfy and nourish you. If you aren't then, just savor what you ate, know that it was delicious, and let it go.

It has worked for both me and my mom...it can work for you too!

Hi Miranda! Thanks for bumping this thread, Lil.

I just had my monthly weigh-in at Curves. I had the audacity to set the goal of losing 10 pounds in the month of November, even though it was a horribly challenging month emotionally, included 2 weeks vacation and the Thanksgiving "EAT ALL DAY" holiday weekend.

I didn't lose the 10 pounds I had hoped! frown

Click to reveal..
I lost 11 pounds since Halloween claps


Click to reveal..
Plus, I lost a cumulative 5 and 3/4 inches!


How did I do it?

I did similar things that Miranda suggested: Contemplate the worth of the pleasure now or the pounds later.

1. I ate everything I wanted, just not very much very often. I love Trader Joes Cheetos but I put them in little 1 ounce baggies and only had one baggie a day.

2. I drink water, plain water (or Smart water to get extra electrolytes) whenever I get the urge to over indulge.

3. I find other tasks that need to be done instead of focusing on food.

4. I take a whiff of something scrumptious and close the lid. (This worked especially when something was on the staff table.)

5. This doesn't work for most but I need the visual results of weighing on my scale every day. (Others use clothes fitting looser or snugger as their gauge but the scale works for me....I even packed it in my suitcase. Don't laugh...11 pounds don't lie.)

6. I heard that Zig Ziglar died a couple days ago and he had some great tips for losing weight I'll have to look up.

Lil, as far as your question about how to NOT eat and eat and eat during the holidays (or any time of the year)....have you ever kept a food log? Just thinking that I'll have to write something down has kept me from overeating in the past.

Miranda, what else have you and your Mom done to get and keep healthy? BTW, I never "DIEt" as I'd rather focus on "LIVE-ing healthy habits."

Ace,

My mom rides her stationary bike or swims every single day.

I don't do anything else. Actually, I'm fat. I can just come out and say it. I need to lose about 70 lbs. But I've been this size before and lost it, and I know the deprivation doesn't work. You have to allow yourself to have things, but CONTROL yourself about the amount. If there's something you cannot control yourself around, you need to try not to be around it, but otherwise, just a smidge is all you really need to enjoy it. If your mind is right.

When I lost it the first time, I worked out EVERY day. No exceptions, no excuses. I went to the gym before anything else. I did 3-4x a week cardio (started with rowing, then moved up to treadmill, then to stair climber) and 3-4x a week weight training. I eventually came to the point where I craved the gym. My body NEEDED it, I felt stiff, sore, sluggish and not myself if I slacked off or tried to skip. Did I enjoy it? Nope, never did learn to enjoy exercise. I hate it. That's one of the reasons that I had to do it first before anything. Otherwise dread would keep me away. If I got out of bed and headed straight to gym, by the time I woke up all the way I was 3/4 of the way done! thumbsup

I just haven't been able to motivate myself to go back to that lifestyle. I have to get up at 6:30 to get to work by 7:30, and I am not getting to sleep before 11 or 11:30 because of DH's sexual needs, so....yeah, not motived to get up at 5:30 am! I need my 8 hours, and I'm only getting about 7. 6 isn't going to cut it for me, kwim?

I'll figure it out though. It's a work in progress.

oh, and PS, that's GREAT work on the month of November!! Go you claps

I gained over 100 pounds after marriage but lost 80 pounds from 2002 to 2007.

Due to a traumatic family situation, I started gradually regaining in 2008 and have regained nearly half of it back....until this month.

Click to reveal..
I now have a health condition that may have resulted from my extended obesity but I'm trying to avoid using meds and my doctors have said that re-losing the weight could help reduce the symptoms even if the condition is presently incurable.


That's my new motivation. I must admit that it was easier to lose when I was younger but 10 years later it's still possible. It's always a choice, every minute, every day, every week, every month. And you're right...it is a work in progress.


We're overcoming decades of marital dysfunction including abuse, passive aggression, gas-lighting & infidelity (both of us).

Ace,

Weight loss/weight maintenance is much like marriage: "it was easier to lose when I was younger but 10 years later it's still possible. It's always a choice, every minute, every day, every week, every month. And you're right...it is a work in progress. "

LOL
