(more for my tracking than anything else)

Fell asleep last night before I could take dose # 2. Wicked hungry after workout, and very tired as well.

Took one dose of oil this morning at 10:10.

Not using sugar anymore.

Haven't gained, but haven't lost either :(

Besides being hungry after your workout, how has your hunger level been overall?  And how long on just oil and not sugar?

Yesterday was my first day of just oil.

The sugar just makes me hungry. I start counting the minutes until I can eat again when I took it.

my hunger level has pretty much remained the same. I'm still eating the same at meals, but just not snacking...unfortunately, I really think I'm not snacking because I feel like "I'm on a diet" instead of because I actually don't want anything.

I'm hoping that once I"ve been on the oil twice a day for a few more days...this will kick in.

..I hope.

I do think a big part of my problem is that I'm not eating as much breakfast as I should...so I'm going to try and change that.

So Friday I took 2 tbsp in the morning, but felt so sick by the afternoon (everything was running through my system) that I left work early and didn't take any that evening or at all on Saturday. On Sunday I took 2 tbsp midday (11am).

Today I'm going to try to get back to my regular routine (2 mid day and 2 late evening).

after reading in some other forums though, I'm curious... should I cut back my amount? I'm taking 4 tbsp a day = 480 calories. I know this is above the amount, but the book does say 2 and 2, right? I want to lose 30-40 pounds.

Advice?

Thanks.

2 T. at a time was making me pretty queasy, too, but it wasn't really affecting my system.

480 calories a day is a lot extra.  Seth says 200-400 calories in oil or SW a day.  Someone else posted 10-20% of your total calories.  No way was I eating 2400 calories a day!  So I've cut back to 300 calories of oil, 1500 total calories.  Stomach feels great at only 1-1/2 T. midmorning, 1 T. midafternoon, and weight loss is right where I want it to be.  Am actually eating only about 1250 calories a day and feeling very satisfied all day long.  I am going to be losing 45-50 pounds if all goes well.

quick update:

I'm down 2 more pounds. So that's 6 since 5/14.

I've cut back my oil. I'm doing 2 tablespoons in the late morning and that's it. I might up it to three though, and spread it out over the day. I'm having a pretty shitty time at life right now, so the diet hasn't been my #1 priority.

Hopefully updates will continue in a more timely fashion.

best wishes to you all.

Golly, I take a week off and there are so many changes!

Last week was the worst I've had in my 26 years. I am not exaggerating.

I took my oil down to 2 tbsps over the weekend. I haven't weighed myself because it is my TOM and I'm not happy about getting on the scale. I am considerably less hungry, so that's something. I think I'm upping the oil to 3tbsp total from now on.

I'll weigh myself at the gym tonight, so maybe we'll see some progress.

Good luck to you all.

I'm sorry you've been having troubles!  Maybe when you get on the scale next you'll have lost a little and it'll give you a boost.  I know I always get kind of embarrassingly happy the mornings that I'm down. :D

I do a DANCE OF JOY when I'm down.

And I am sure to tell everyone about it. Even my cat.

Nothing to be embarrassed about!!!

I could use a boost though, so here's hoping!

quick update...

Fell asleep before I could take the oil last night.

Am about to go back up to 2 tbsp twice a day. I think this works better for me. Maybe just 1 tbsp at night? who knows.

I'm not waking up starving, so that's good.

OMG THAT DAY is here!!!

The day when:

clothes that used to be tight are no longer tight!

and the day that a box of brownies need not be afraid of being eaten all at once. I can't believe I've had that box since the weekend and there are still brownies in it.

Amazing.

Although, it could be that my roommate hasn't found the box yet....
