  1. I think it's great only gaining 1 lb on vacation. Like you say you'll loose it back. How was Tahoe? Any loss is great. If just starting to work out remember muscle weighs more than fat (but makes us healthier and look better). What is MFP? Well I'm still really freaking out about is my hair loss is from the diet. As those who have been on here with me know I've done well on it loosing a total of 28lb in 2 1/2 months. I've tried other diets and low carb (maybe ketosis) is the only thing that ever seams to work for me. That being said, I know I'm not in ketosis today. Went out to ea with my mom (she chose Golden Coral) yesterday and the restaurant had fried green tomatoes. I really like fried green tomatoes. I ended up having 6 slices before I was done. There was also clam chowder so I had to have some. I didn't have bread. I skipped all deserts, but had a strawberry. I thought to myself, "well I know I've probably ruined it if I am in ketosis, but I'm proud that I skipped the bread and deserts. Then I get home to find out we are going to my Sister-in-Law's for a birthday party. My great niece is turning two. I don't know if anyone else out there feels this way, but I feel obliged (maybe obligated) to eat anything my Mother-in-Law makes. She made German potato salad and the cupcakes. I love German potato salad. And yea, I felt I pretty much had to eat one of her cupcakes, and I have to admit to loving every crumb Well I went ahead and weighed this morning. I've gained 3.2lb since Thursday weigh-in. Truly that's not as horrible as it could be for me (have I mentioned that I can gain weight faster than anyone I've ever seen). Hopefully I can watch and be back to null for the week. Man, that was a goooood cupcake.🤤
  2. Thanks for this explanation. I've never bought the certificates and was getting confused. Am considering buying them on cruise in few weeks.
  3. That's fantastic only gaining 4.9lb on a cruise and you are probably right that it was mostly water weight with already being pretty much back to where you were. Congratulations. Did you have any issues with feeling ill with eating carbs?
  4. The more cruises the better. Love nice cabins, but would rather have more cruises 😁.
  5. Who cares about a few pound when you just paid off your mortgage? You shouldn't. I'd have to have at-least one celebatory meal. Desert at Dairy Queen sounds good right now. Hoping you don't let not quite reaching your goal weight bother you on your cruise. You should feel good about every ounce you lost. And congratulations on the 0.6lb weight loss this week.
  6. A whole month at sea? Sounds wonderful. Hope you have a safe and fun / relaxing vacation. Good job on the 0.8lb. Well, I'm down 5.6lb over last 2 weeks (was at my mom's last Thursday). Weight loss is going really good, but having issues. Thought I'd cut and paste my questions here. I have no idea how to tell if I'm actually in ketosis, but I've really been trying hard to go low, low carbs. ===================================================================================================== I think I've been in keto (not really sure how to use that word) for over a month now. Before that I had taken 10 days off while staying with brother. Before that I believe keto for about a month. So far I've lost around 24lb. I was looking on-line to try to see if I should come off diet a before my cruise in 2 weeks. I know when I was at my brothers I didn't feel the best while there and was wondering if it had anything to do with coming off diet. Well, while looking it does talk about trying to come off slow because of side effects. I was wondering if anyone out there could pass on any advise on that front. Also, and this is where I'm freaking out, the article I read discussed hair loss. I have been thinking my hair was feeling thinner over the past two weeks. I want to get my hair colored before the cruise and have been watching the roots growing out. What do any of you know about this? Has it happened to any of you? Am I now going to be able to go back on my diet when I get back from the cruise? Should I not get hair colored in case it causes more hair loss? Once I start eating carbs again will it grow back? WILL IT GROW BACK 😫 ? (I once took a medication that caused me to loose 1/2 my hair but the benefits were such that I didn't care and it did mostly grow back) Please help. I am really freaking out. ===================================================================================================== Like I say I'm not sure if I'm in ketosis. Can really low carb diet cause hair loss? If not in ketosis should I still come off low carb diet the week before the cruise? Would there be any vitamin/minerals that I could take that might help. I'd really hate it if I couldn't diet like this. As much as I hate not having the foods I want, I have lost over 26lb in just over 2 months.
  7. Congratulations on being able to get done what I've seldom read others have been able to do.

  9. Thanks. I had read this page off of JennyB1977's post, but guess I missed it first time around. Again, thanks.
  10. Does anyone have a way to list a link to NCL's site where I can read the rules (and then I will cut & paste to take with me)? TIA
  11. If you don't stop at a port, those port charges will be refunded. At least that is what has happened to us.
  12. Hello everyone. Sorry I missed Thursday weigh-in. Was staying with my mom and I think her scale weighs lighter than mine does (was saying 110lb, boy I was wishing that was right). Congratulations to all those who lost. And to those that gained, you'll get it back off as long as you keep trying. This morning I weighed 212.2, so down 2.6lb from last weigh-in. I'm not really going to count it and plan to do a 2 week weigh-in this Thursday. Some of you have what sound like amazing cruises coming up. We just have the one 7 day coming up in 3 weeks, but with my brother going we are extra excited. I guess my goal would be to weigh 189lb on Dec 26th weigh-in. If I was 199lb I wouldn't be upset (knowing would get back at it as of Jan 1st). Talk to you all on Thursday.
  13. This sounds like what we might do. Ok. Maybe not. I've never heard this. What is everyone's thoughts?
