  1. Jenny those pictures are amazing. Never in my life did I look anywhere close to that. Very beautiful. Got sorta a good problem. Started packing for cruise and the outfits I planned to take are too big. Took a long time to find clothes that looked good (am taking some that are bigger for later in cruise).
  2. Leaving on NCL Breakaway on 9/29/19 for Western Caribbean cruise. Does anyone see any problems? Any help will be greatly appreciated. TIA
  3. After such a big loss, it's great you didn't have a gain. Only 2.8lb on a cruise - I think that is great. Leaving on my cruise this Sunday and figure I will join around 10lb. That's just the way I am. I'm so sorry you had such a tough week. Starting a new medication can cause so many side effects. Hopefully it won't take you long to adjust to it. With such a bad week I wouldn't let a small weight gain upset you. You will loose it back. Congrats on loosing the pound. You'll get that 0.2lb. Loosing 10lb by 11/08 is a big goal. Go for it. (but don't get upset if not reached) Up less than a pound for the month ..... definitely don't let it upset you. You are so amazing with keeping track of how you are trying to loose. You'll get it. I think if anyone will reach their ultimate goal you will. Have a wonderful vacation and then I hope your week of training is painless. Congratulation on the weight loss. Well my loss for the week is 0.4lb. I was down quite a bit more on Sunday, but as I've increased my carbs through the week I've gained. Oh well, with the week I've had the diet has kinda taken a back seat. My son broke his toe on Monday. Me and my husband thought it was just stubbed or something so I sent him to school on Tuesday. When he took his shoe off after school on Tuesday I knew it could be worse than we though so took him to doctor. Low and behold he broke it. I've so much guilt for not taking him in earlier. The doctor I took him to put him in temporary cast and said he might need surgery. So today we went to surgeon. Good news, no surgery, and he is in a boot (on crutches) than can be taken off for showers (good news as anyone knows about pubescent boys needing good shower). Also this week finally heard back all at once from doctors scheduling things (spinal tap, EGD, sleep specialist appointment because the test I took says I have sleep apnea) that I've been waiting on for awhile. They wanted me to do the spinal tap tomorrow, but I'm not going to because of the possibility of complications would cancel my cruise. So everything will be in the first two weeks we get back. It's been a stressful week. I'm nowhere ready for my cruise. It's going to be a long next two days.
  4. I say "go for it". If that amount is what you are willing to pay, do it. I think if you bid just $5 over the minimum might make the difference.
  5. Only by reading on this site, I do believe you are right. I think many people think NCL will hold the ship or provide transportation, but people who have experience with it say otherwise.
  6. Am on this cruise with you, but not in the Haven. Will be following along to see how the other half live. Hope to see you at Meet and Mingle.
  7. Can't answer all your questions but, we went on a full transit from Miami to Los Angeles on Carnival Spirit (I think). That was a long time ago and my memory is horrible. But I can tell you that was an amazing cruise. The ship was so wide and the locks so narrow that people were reaching out to touch the sides. If I were you I would plan to go out early and get a good seat on deck so you can watch all day. Also, make sure to move to both sides for the views. Sorry I can't give any more advise, but I would bet money that you are going to have a good cruise. Also, for us it was the only time we've cruised in Pacific so those were all new stops up the Pacific coast.
  8. Thank you PelicanBill for doing this. I'm supposed to get on the NCL Breakaway in Miami on 9/29/19. Will be following along.
  9. On Breakaway in January I just went to casino and found quiet corner and smoked.
  10. Thanks for encouragement. I hope this new type of wrapping helps. Where is your son's next duty station? Hopefully better than Korea. I did not enjoy my tour over there one bit.
  11. This is my first time with NCL air perk. I know I can print my air tickets for trip down within 24 hours of flights. On way back does cruise-line print them for me?
  12. Always good when we don't gain. Wonderful to be at goal weight and maintain. Ahhhhh, wiggle room. FOUR POUNDS IS WONDERFUL. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Congratulations on your loss. Hoping your leg gets better more quickly. You got this 5lb. You can do it. First, good job on weight loss. Second, I hope you can be OK with changing your goal. I had hoped to be less than 200 before my cruise next week when I started. I then decided being below 210 would be OK (I went to my brother's for a week and gained 9-11lb). Now as people will see I've changed my goal to be less than 215lb next Thursday before I go. Congratulations on the weight loss. Seems like a lot of people like that My Fitness Pal. Has it helped you? Hope you are having a good cruise. I'd much rather look thinner / fit into clothes I previously couldn't than have a weight loss. Well, this has been a really bad week for me weight wise. I gained 3.2lb. I had just one day where I added in carbs. Had to have my Mother-in-law's German potato salad and one of her home made cupcakes. So my weight yesterday morning was 212lb. The good news is that is down 23lb from where I started at 235lb eleven weeks ago when I started. The bad news (weight wise) is I've decided to up carbs this week in hopes I won't have side effects from being on cruise the next week. So I'm expecting a gain this week. And know I'll gain next. Oh well, the price we pay to go on a cruise. I don't plan to eat bread, potatoes, rice, nor pasta. I'll limit it to one desert a day. But otherwise I'll pretty much eat / drink what I want. Love Malibu rum with pineapple juice and pina coladas. If I have any soda it will be diet. We'll see. My cruise isn't till the 29th so I'll post next week how it's going with adding some carbs. I'll go back on diet when I get home.
  13. Wow, you've done keto since 2012. Just how much weight did you loose? Just Wow. I'm having problems now with craving the stuff I can't have. Anyway, I know one of my biggest issues will be alcoholic drinks. I love Malibu rum and pineapple juice or a good pina colada. Just a few of those and I'd be way over allotted carbs. And I will probably have more than a few a day. I will not eat any bread. Will only have one desert a day. Will keep away from pasta. But I'm sure my weight gain will be enough to make me cringe.
  14. Congratulations on fitting into a pair of jeans that didn't fit before. I think that's the best feeling ever. Really hoping that your leg feels better this week.
  15. Following. Will be visiting Cagney's, Ocean Blue, and LeBistro for the first time in 2 weeks.
  16. Looking forward to first time meal at Cagney's. What meal would you recommend?
  17. 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.🤤
  18. Thanks for this explanation. I've never bought the certificates and was getting confused. Am considering buying them on cruise in few weeks.
  19. 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?
  20. The more cruises the better. Love nice cabins, but would rather have more cruises 😁.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Congratulations on being able to get done what I've seldom read others have been able to do.
