Hi Pastagal!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope you have lots of fun shopping for clothes ... let us know what you bought! Bragging can be such fun!

I'm still struggling with the hair shedding, but have a doctor's appointment next week so hopefully I'll have some answers soon! I'll let everybody on the boards know about his advice, just in case it happens to them! I've lost 36 pounds since he saw me last, so I'm kinda excited to see his reaction!

I WILL hug my loved one this weekend, as my daughter is home for the long weekend (in Canada, our long weekend is this weekend ... I understand for you folks, it's next weekend).

Take care and enjoy yourself!

I want to Thank all of you that left me a nice Happy Birthday comment,that was sweet of you:} I had a great day,,got a plant and a vase of flowers from my sister inlaw,,My hubby gave me 200.00 in gift cards for our local mall and then sunday he is taking me to the big out of town mall to go clothes shopping,so i am looking forward to that;}Kids came over and they gave me stuff to work in my flowers with and some new little plants,,,a new CD to walk with,,great songs on it,,,,it was just really nice.

My son brought a strawberry cheese cake and told me i was going to eat a small peice,,,it would be the first sweets i have eaten in nearly 4 weeks,so i said ok,,i was really shocked how sweet it tasted to,,,but it was good,but i had them take the cheese cake that was left over home with them,,he reminded me that i need to bring some of the high carb foods back into my diet slowly,,,but i am still afraid to do that,,,tho i have brought bread back in and eat one slice per day now,,which has not caused the cravings i use to have for it to return,,but i am eating 100 % whole wheat now,,i haven't lost anything in the past couple days,,,hubby is really starting to show his weight loss and says he feels so much better ,,so for that it is worth it.

well i am waiting for my youngest grandson to get here,i have him today,,gotta do laundry and then tonight i am looking forward to the Soap Oprah awards that are on every yr,,,i enjoy those:}

Soon2BThin on 05/15/2003:
Sorry you're having a problem with your stomach after lunch. I hate feeling sick (well, I guess everyone does,haha) Do you think it is the diet that is causing it? So far I haven't had any problems there and I've always had stomach trouble. I like your peanut butter idea, I tried it the other day and mmmmmm. I can't eat nuts though. And I want to thank you for this low-carb idea. I don't think I would have tried it if I hadn't read about all your success. I hope that icky stomach feeling goes away for good for you soon.


Soon2BThin on 05/15/2003:
Oh my gosh, I totally forgot to wish you a Happy 50th Birthday! That was the first thing I was going to do! See how it is, when you reach the 50's? Hahaha! I hope you have a really great day and you tell us all about it tomorrow! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Golightly on 05/13/2003:
Pastagal, I'm like you -- I love Oprah and Dr Phil, especially when they have something on dieting. In fact, this Friday (May 16) Dr. Phil is doing a show called "Trading Places" where he makes people trade lives so that they can walk a mile in someone else's shoes. One of the segments will be about a woman who thinks overweight people are irresponsible and lazy. Dr. Phil makes her don a 300-pound fat suit!! I can't wait!!


Soon2BThin on 05/13/2003:
Hi! You're doing great, as usual! Thanks for all your advice, I sure need it. I'm going to try copying some of your menu since I'm not good at figuring out what to feed myself, haha. I like the peanut butter snack idea. Have a great day!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day,,,,went to my moms and saw her for a bit and gave her the gift we got her,,,then came back home and just basically did nothing till the kids came over around 4pm and they brought all the food to fix for dinner,,,I had not seen my daughter inlaw for about 5 days or so and she noticed right away the weight i had lost,,which made me feel good,,They brought me a 11x14 photo of my three grandkids,,it is such a beautiful pic of them,,i was more excited over getting that than anything.

Everyday i feel so good about this new lifestyle we have chosen to do,hubby is losing and feeling better,sleeping better,its just so amazeing to me how not eating certain foods can change a person so much,,and it be so easy ,,,anyway,,like i keep saying,i can't say enough good things about low carb,and yes Soonie,,i do eat carbs,i just keep my carbs low and mainly stay away from the 5 foods i have listed before that i do not eat right now. I am to the point now that even when i think ,hmm,,maybe i will eat just alittle of one of them it will be ok,,but i seem to so far stop myself,part of me is afraid that if i even try to go back to eating them that i will start craving them all over again,,tho this week i am going to start eating bread now and then i think,,100% whole wheat,the lowest carb i can find and just one slice when i do eat it,,well i hope all of you had a wonderful sunday and enjoyed your day,,

Remember to hugg your loved ones and tell them you love them ok??:}} Also,,,,One day at a time and Consistency will help you reach your goal faster;}

Golightly on 05/12/2003:
Hi Pastagal! Sounds like you had a great day yesterday. I'm glad both you and your husband are feeling better. I feel better (and sleep better) having lost my weight, too!

I'll have to check out that South Beach Diet site. Sounds interesting.

My diet must be similar to yours. I eat carbs once per day (every day) but limit them for the other two meals.

Keep up the good work!


biscottibody59 on 05/12/2003:
Pasta, glad you had such a nice mother's day--the picture sounds like something to really cherish:-)

You're doing so well on this--was wondering if you actually count the carbs or just eat a certain amount of them and know when to stop. Was just wanting to get a ballpark idea of what you average on a daily basis. Just curious:-)

For example, I average between 200-300 (at the upper end) and I know for me this is curbing my carbs from what I ate on a daily basis 2 or 3 years ago.

Have a good day and keep up the good work!


dolyda on 05/12/2003:
you've done such a fantastic job...just out of curiousity, do you know what your "goal weight" or range is?...i'm just wondering cuz i don't even know what to shoot for...i put 135lbs...i can't remember being 135lbs, but thought that was safe...i'm 5'5" by the way

Its such a beautiful day here today in northern calif,,looks like a perfect Mother's Day weekend:}Hubby got up around 4 am and left to go fishing with my son,,they will be gone most of the day,,i hope they have alot of fun,,my sons lives for hunting and fishing:}

I feel great this morning,,i was on here last night on a new site i found about Low carb dieting,,very interesting,i had bought the new book awhile back called "SouthBeach Diet",,its Low carb,but easier to understand than Atkins was,,well i found a site last night that talks about it and shows you step by step what you should do if you choose to do this type of lifestyle,,,has a message board where people who are on it talk and share ideas,questions and even the doctor who wrote the book will answer questions you have about it,,it was good to hear others who are doing this talked about how they felt the first couple weeks,,exactly like i have felt and that made me see that it is changing my eating that made me feel that way at first,,they all say pretty much if you stick it out for the first two ta three weeks ,it gets so easy,,,they are right,anyway,,if anyone is interested,its Prevention.com,,,,look at the South Beach diet information and message boards,,

Well today i have to wash my mother inlaws hair,that is IF she is well enough,,,never know from day to day what she is going to be like,,i have not gone in there yet to check her,,but i will as soon as i finish this,,Going to get lots done around here today,kids are coming over tomorrow,,looking forward to them cooking for me,,doesn't happen very often :}

Ok,,,have a great saturday everyone,remember to hugg your loved ones and tell them you love them daily ok??:}}Also,,,One day at a time and CONSISTENCY will help you get to your goal faster:}

Soon2BThin on 05/11/2003:
Thank you so much for all the advice on your diet. I'm starting on Monday. I borrowed my Mom's Atkins book but it is the old one from about the 70's, I think. I like your version better though. And I will check out the Prevention site too. I've just got to do something here, as you can see by my weight. I notice from your menu here that you do eat some carbs, that sounds a lot smarter to me, instead of the old Atkins "no carb" way. I hope I can make it through those first weeks. I'm sure going to give it a good try. Thanks again. Also, I hope your MIL is doing okay. It's certainly wonderful to know someone as generous and unselfish as you are and I think of you often and, of course, I'm always telling my family about the "lady who's lost so much weight doing the low-carb and who takes care of her ill MIL". God bless you, Judy!

Wow, when I see how well you're doing on this, I'm almost ready to try it myself. I can't imagine weighing only 125! Too bad I like toast with my eggs, hahaha! What would be good to have for breakfast instead of eggs? I have high cholesterol. Also I noticed you don't eat much fruit. Is this intentional? I know most fruit has lots of carbs. I love to have an apple once in awhile but maybe on your plan I could do this every now and then, huh? One of these days I'm really going to get with it. You are such an inspiration!

Hi Pasta, and thanks for the note today! Ah, the irony ... PastaGal is going low-carb!! LOL How sweet that your son is going to ensure you low-carb food! It's nice when people support our efforts!

PastaGal, you are an amazing person. The situation with your MIL must be very difficult, but you keep handling it so well. You are quite a woman!

Take care!


pezzy34 on 05/09/2003:
Do you think that doing something low carb for a short period, let's say a month, would kick things into gear and jump start weight loss again? I just don't want to do anything I can't stick with forever, ya know? But I'm willing to try almost anything new at this point! Where do I start? Thanks for your comments by the way! Love, Jenni
