I am going to get down the calender with my weigh ins and post here what I have lost. It has been slow but steady which is the best way to lose.
:

10-1=158....started low carb diet.
10-10=155.5
10-26=150
11-7=148.5
11-17=147
11-30=146.5
12-2=145.5
12-6=145 I have lost 13 pounds in 10 weeks while remaining alcohol free.
Tomorrow is 90 days.

Bizi,

This is marvelous. You made a good plan for yourself and you followed it.

Things are going good. I saw my pdoc this morning. She was very happy with my weight loss and my being sober. I did not tell her of my plans for drinking on new years or my cruise...oh well, three months till I see her again. 3 months to decide whether I confess or not.
She is encouraging me to take a different kind of omega 3's epa over dha in a 4:1 ratio. (1000mg total)They are a lot more expensive but she said they are what is needed for optimal brain health. I am going to look into that. right now I take only one capsule and it has 180mg of epa and 120mg of dha and 60mg of ala.(I know this is not enough) plus a flax seed oil capsule of 450mg of ala and other omegas. When I tried taking more of the regular fish oils it made my skin really oily. So I should take the more expensive concentrated brand. and just spend the money. I will look on amazon to see if I can find it cheaper there. an extra dollar a day is alot when I already take a lot of supplements. And of course I have full bottles of both my fish oil and flaxseed oil supplements! Maybe I don't need to take the flax seed oil?
(I just always have for some reason)

maybe the flaxseed oil is just to much oil for you with all the other oils,may be you should just use flaxseed not flaxseed oil,

I heard about it on The NBC news with Brian Williams. A bunch of people got married at 12:12 PM. Today being 12/12/12. They can easily remember their anniversaries. BF
