Morning

I weighed in and Iím up one pound this morning. Not sure why but Iíll keep on going with this great plan. I guess it could be any number of things like eating to much yesterday even though I stayed on plan.

Well itís my Carb Nite and Iím so glad it fell on Halloween because itís my DH birthday and he always likes to go to the Chinese Buffet. I donít really care for Chinese so Iíll get a large salad and some delicious cut up fruit. DS has to work today so we will go for dinner. Then back to the house for presents and Carvel ice cream cakeÖ..maybe a couple of mini candies. Iím not sure how many trick or treaters we will get this year but Iím hoping not to have to much candy left

Enjoy Halloween!

Morning

Iím still on the Carb Nite plan and my loses are not as fast as in the beginning however I am still losing. I lost the one pound I gained and Iím down another pound this week.

Today is my Carb Nite and for my main meal Iím planning tacos. Iíve been craving them for a couple of weeks. I will also snack on cashews and have some Fritos chili cheese fries w/ dip. I pick Sundays for my CN because I watch football and I like to snack during the gamesÖÖI made a ice cream cake for dessert with ice cream sandwiches, bunny tracks ice cream, real whipped cream and caramel sauce and nuts on top. I prefer hot fudge but I want to use it up so I will have more room with thanksgiving coming up.

I enjoy my CN but I also enjoy getting back to LC on Monday, I donít have any problem going right back to my LCÖÖI feel healthy and happy with my plan and I think of it as my 90/10 plan

Have a great Sunday and go Bills!

Hiya Jeep

Glad you're doing so well and enjoying your plan!

I'm sticking to the OMAD, fasting between 18-20 hours per day.

Focusing on more nutritious foods and plugging it into Cronometer.

I have removed aspartame from my diet completely. I'm certain it was causing my nighttime hunger.

Talk later

Hi Mojo

Iím glad your doing the OMAD it has always worked so well for you. Putting in Cronometer to keep an eye on calories is something your good at. So you do a 4 to 6 hour window with one meal and snacks. I have tried to count calories but never got pasted one day lol it stressed me out

I have diet root beers whenever I feel like I need something sweet, I donít have any problems with drinking them because I always have them after a meal. I think if I was doing OMAD I wouldnít drink them either because I could see the sweet taste making me want to eat. OMAD is not easy but I love the results it gives and nothing to think about till itís time to eat

Iím loving the Carb Nite Solution plan, itís pretty easy and I donít have to count anything I know what to eat to stay under the carbs allowed. Iíve been on plan for a couple of months nowÖÖ.longer then I have ever stuck to any plan. I can enjoy all holidays and events with a little planning and that makes it sooo doable.

Later

Hi. I just recommitted yesterday after a very long hiatus.

I was very successful with Carb Nite (you can check out my journal). My "Golden Ticket" as I referred to it about 4 years ago, was IF, keto/low carb and weekly Carb Nites.

I am planning to have my first CN on Saturday, November 27th.

I would love to join you on this journey.

I remember preparing for my first CN and being really nervous about ending up in a non-stop binge that lead to my old ways. I was so surprised that the same thing happened with me - it was so easy to jump right back LC. Knowing that in 7 days I could again have whatever I wanted helps.

Even when I did vacation protocol a few times it worked really well.

I'm so happy to have someone to share this journey with.

MorningÖ.

I may have my CN on Saturday this week that way Thanksgiving will be day 5. Iíve never had a CN sooner than 6 days but I want to enjoy Thanksgiving. I was also thinking of skipping my CN this weekend knowing that I will be eating a lot on Thursday. Iíll see how it goes probably go by how Iím feeling. If I skip it that will put me at 11 days.

What is vacation protocol? Is that in the book? I donít remember it.

Enjoy the day

Kiefer talked about it at his body.io site, but I see that the site is down. I did my own modified protocol back in 2016. Within a week I had my son's Grade 12 grad, my parents' 50th wedding anniversary and a concert to attend. Here is a snip from my journal:

Saturday - ULC (Morning weight: 203.0)
Sunday - Russell's Grad BBQ - Fast/ULC till BBQ and then enjoy (Morning weight: 203.0)
Monday - ULC (Morning weight: 205.6)
Tuesday - ULC (Morning weight: 204.4)
Wednesday - Russell's Grad Banquet - fast/ULC till banquet then enjoy (Morning weight: 202.0)
Thursday - ULC (Morning weight: 200.4)
Friday - Mom & Dad's 50th Anniversary celebration - fast/ULC till event then enjoy
Saturday - rescheduled Meat Loaf concert - fast/ULC till supper then enjoy
Sunday-Friday - ULC
Saturday, July 9 - return to scheduled CNs

Ok thanks, you really did well with the modified week even lost some and enjoyed all your events. Itís nice to know we can mix it up at times.

Going to get some snow tonight theyíre calling for lake effect and Iím hoping we donít get it. I have a deck box out front for packages and the porch is not covered so I have to keep all the snow shoveled for the deliveryís. I also have Walmart+ and get free delivery of groceries. I really do most of my shopping myself but when itís bad weather itís nice to have.

Later

We've had a blizzard here Tuesday-Wednesday. High winds and lots of snow. I've shoveled the last 2 days. Enjoy doing it when it's not too cold and it's a good workout.

Morning

Itís my weigh in today and Iím down another 2 pounds. Iím happy with that although I donít think that will continue. Iím figuring 1 pound a week or maybe 2 one week and zero the next. Either will be fine with me as long as I donít gain anything back

Iím looking forward to thanksgiving and all the good food. We are going over to my sons and he always puts out hors díoeuvres and a great thanksgiving spread.
Iím bringing the desserts and that will be pies, ice cream and whipped cream for the top. Iím picking up the pies this week so theyíre freshÖÖ.I love warm apple pie with French vanilla ice cream

Have a great dayÖÖÖGO BILLS!!!🏈🏈

Good morning!

Congrats on your loss this week. That's great.

Your Thanksgiving feast sounds delicious.

I'm heading out to my parents' this weekend to celebrate my Mom's 75th birthday. I will have my first Carb Nite on Saturday. Looking forward to it already.
