have you tried just a big bowl of whipped cream? No jello, just get yourself a can of redi whip and squirt yourself some in a bowl..sprinkle a little splenda on top (not like it needs to be sweeter) and voila! a simple and simply fufilling dessert.

Don't forget beef jerky!

MMM. Yea! I've done great so far today too! Tues:
shake w/ vitamins (not hungry)
sunflower seeds (addicted)
Turkey sandwhich (no bread) Big one too
shake w/ more vitamins
I'm totally full!!!

now for dinner...who knows?!

I have tried the whip cream thing only I buy heavy cream and whip it myself and put splenda in it so it has no sugar at all. Sometimes I put flavorings in it like chocolate syrup (no sugar) or lemon, or pineapple. It's a GREAT dessert!

Thanks for reminding me (i haven't had it for a while)

I need to go shopping and stock up on eatable stuff for me.

I'm using ketostix and they're turning dark pink (moderate) already! Next step-purple.

1 1/2 hrs at gym also http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif

Doin' good posie! I have a ? for you or for anyone here in B.C. who might know... Where can I buy ketostix, and do I have to ask the pharmacist? I haven't bought any, but I am thinking maybe I should.

chipmunkis,
I just buy mine at Raleys (grocery store) They're $11 for a bottle of 50 here in Sac. You don't need an RX just look in the pharmacy section of the store. You could ask the pharmacist if you can't find them.

Good luck! I love using them because they give you immediate feed back. Very motivating

I FEEL SOOOOOO AWFUL! I don't know what's wrong with me. I've been in HIGH anxiety mode most of the day and practically panicking. I'm nauseous and jittery. Could it be the ********* green & beige I took earlier? I've taken them before and they gave me no problems. They don't have ephedra in them, but man do I feel lousy. Every minor problem feels like the world falling down around me today. I can't sleep or even sit still.

I have panic disorder but it's been under control for quite some time. Maybe this is just a flare up? I don't usually feel this bad during the day though from panics. Only in the middle of the night do I wake up with panics.

AF is overdue so maybe that has something to do with it. HEEEELP I may be up on the boards all night trying to distract myself. Sorry if I bug ya!

Talking

Rock on!!! That's awesome!! I lost 30 pounds on Atkins, it DOES work... I also have 2 aunts who have lost ALOT of weight on it and are still doing it which is the point of this, DON'T QUIT ONCE YOU GET SKINNY like I did, because I kept the weight off for a while but I went back to my bad eating habbits. Atkins in life long, not a tempoary thing. Losing alot of weight fast is very encouraging but dont quit because it will come back!!! Good luck!!!

We can do it!!!

Unhappy

Aww, posie, sorry you're feeling lousy... I hope it isn't anything serious Try to relax if you can (maybe a cup of camomile tea?). Does exercise help at all, maybe pilates or yoga? Sorry, just trying to think of something that might help you feel better....
Hang in there!

Thank you chipmunkis - you're such a sweetie! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif

I finally gave in and took a pill (it's kind of like valium). I try to avoid them but it IS helping. I'm calming down now. I think It's just stress and stuff.

I'll be o.k.

You know, i think I do have some chamomile tea. I'll go make some
