Good Morning all! Today is weigh in for me, I've had some good and some bad days this week as far as the program goes. I have gotten a good bit of exercise in so I hope I have an ok loss.
Congratulations Dawn for getting to Transition, the nurse I meet with has talked a little about it the last couple of weeks. I am so afraid of regaining the weight, yet bound and determined that I am not going to.
Rachel, hang in there, you have come so far!
Welcome Jordan & Stephanie...look forward to hearing about your progress

Rachel--how are you doing on our week 1? I am doing it around 700 now. Off to work today-school is always a fun place most days!

Hello fellow "losers!" Dawn, your walking in that freezing weather just amazes me! I don't walk if it is colder than 30 degrees here! Guess I don't have all the under armor and layers that you do though. I did go to the Y yest AM, didn't get in the pool afterward, but the steam sauna felt great! Committed to the Y three days a week, since I just restarted week 1 yesterday I don't want to do too much too soon and get burned out. I love rowing, doing the huge stair machine, and some of the abd machines. Ususally I also tread water and do my own pool exercises.....chlorine has dried my skin too much and I hope to be back into that routine in a couple of weeks. Drinking lots of water too! I had to give up coffee for health reasons and yesterday enjoyed 3 cups of boiled water, plain. Met the get warm need without the caffeine, milk, and SF flavoring. So I am pleased! Even though it is cold here, the sun is shining today, so that means a beautiful day!!
Let's all hang in there!! Short sleeve season will be here before we know it!!

Awesome Dawn! So does Medi still consider your goal to be 145? If so, you made it! Can you believe it???? Yesterday my calories were around 700. I'd have to check on the other days. Like I said, I have made some bad choices!

Debbie - keep up the great work! Great job getting to the Y!

Tomorrow morning is my weigh-in. Hoping for something good after this week, which hasn't been great. Anything that isn't a gain is good!

Yeah--I changed my goal from 155 to 145 to 140 just so I can be in the active phase, they know even though they put me on maintenance I am going to do my own thing and try to lose more. remember my hassel that they wanted me to not rejoin for 12 more weeks since I didn't need it, it was too funny. I will keep trying to lose a little more, I would like to get to 140 but we will see. Off to do a walk with my hubby, Dan is down about 45 lbs, doing Adkins and is a wonderful support. Keep going and get yourself motivated to work hard for the rest of the month!!!!

I think we all have that thought, I just tell myself I need to make a permanent change and if I go back to what I was doing that is insanity.

Thanks Rachel! I am seeing a dietician weekly, something on my own at local hospital with support group. Meet tonight. I am sure I am down at least 3 lbs from last week. I haven't been counting calories yet. Dietician is opposed to high protein diet, low carb, but I know what has worked for me in the past! Trying to do what I need to do.

I am looking into doing this program soon. I am supposed to be consulting with a health counselor soon. Is there anything I should know before deciding on a "Yes" or a "no"?

It looks like many of you have had successful results but the important part is maintenance and being diligent in weighing every week to not let it get out of control and re-gain what you lost.

Hi to the Wisconsin gal! I was raised in the Milwaukee area but now reside in sunny Phoenix.

Congrats to all of you who are down this week!

No loss today. Bummer! I'm not surprised though. I need to get my act together. Thankful I didn't gain! I am definitely doing week 1 this week to get over these cravings I'm struggling with. My husband will also be starting, so we can do week 1 together!

Keep up all the great losses!

Welcome Toni! it's warm here in WI, today is 13 and just going out for a walk now! Research ketogenic diet, low carb dieting, you have to be honest with yourself if you can give up a majority of the carbs you might love, that doesn't mean you don't have them, but very limited initially, essentially you will have after week 1 like a serving of veggies and fruit. It has worked for me, down 76 lbs for me and I would say very well worth it. Any diet has a reduction of your calories, high carbs if you really look at it, you need to decide if you can make the change but explore on u tube those diets, you will have an answer after you look at that. Good luck!

I think a lot of people are opposed to this, but that is not what the current research is saying! congrats on the loss!

what you don't think about when you start is that you might be successful in this type of diet and you might need a tummy tuck after this! I see a plastic surgeon on Monday, after 3 kids, etc, age, loss of elasticity in skin, I am considering this down the line, would like to know how much it cost so I can start saving now! I knew I shouldn't of brought my corvette last year. Keep going!

Good Morning! I was down 1.6 on Tuesday for a total of 35...15 to go. I talked to the nurse about how hungry I was all last week. Going through my journal we realized that I probably am not getting enough calories since I have been trying to increase my cardio times. He wants me to add about 100 protein calories this week, especially on the days that I get more exercise in. Seems strange to add calories to lose, but he said I won't be sorry. Now getting it in is the hard part, most days I have a hard time getting between 500 and 600 protein calories. I think for this week anyhow, my strategy will be to have a medi shake in the eve if I haven't met my calorie intake for the day.

Hope everyone is having a great week! Stay warm and dry!

Congratulations Rene! I remember hearing this from my counselors previously. If you don't eat enough, your body will go into starvation mode and hang on to what it is given. If we supply without being excessive, and use up what we don't need, it will work out! You sound like you have a good plan for the evening.

I am down 2.1 lbs last PM from last week, despite being on Prednisone for 6 days and not always making good choices. I am still investigating how to eat an anti-inflammatory diet with this WOE due to health issues, and a current frustrating rash that I have had for about a month prior to getting back on MWL WOE. I do have mold allergies and threw out a BR plant this morning, have stayed out of the pool at the "Y", and taken all kinds of skin care treatments. Thinking of adding an anti-Candida approach to my eating also; that would include eliminating nuts, canned foods, and dairy products for a while too.

Keep up the good work everyone!

Hi Ladies!!! Congrats to the losers! The clinic told me that if you don't lose it doesn't mean you can't so hang in there!!

Wow Dawn! 76 lbs! Congrats!!

I weighed in today: another 2 lb loss. The nurse said my body was just holding on to fluid. I just cannot eat any form of white flour/sugar. And especially as I'm getting older. Have a great day and will check in tomorrow :-)))

Good job on the weight loss ladies! remember that when you lose 1-3 lbs a week, in time, it adds all up. I have been doing this for 7 months now and that is what I did most weeks. A little bit at a time. You do need to eat more when you are doing a lot of exercising, I might be on a hike and take in 300 calories when I am out, my body needs it and when I have more calories some days, I actually lose more. I am having an o.k. week, just going out to eat more lately. I had a stressful day yesterday at work, if I ever wanted a banana split, that would of been the day, but I said no and feel good about that. Hang in there and keep going, you can do it!

yeah, it beats walking in 30 below like last week! no freezing hands! Keep trying with what is going to work and make you feel good, trying to eliminate foods and what you can and cannot eat is a challenge but u can do this.

I am still reading about what may be causing this awful rash I have had for about a month. I have narrowed it down to Oak Leaf Itch Mites...ugh!. And DH has raked up leaves in two trash cans in garage near where the wind can blow inside the garage and possibly into the house if the door is open. Another thing is one article said the mites can be on squirrels or birds (who were in the leaves/trees) and then get to humans via their pets. We have been allowing indoor cat to go to upper deck outside....and he hangs around where I have the bird feeder/but squirrels thinks the feeder is for them! I hope this comes across so you can read it. If affects the Midwest! Worse case is the need for oral steroids (I told you that helped!) and steroid cream (I haven't tried that yet), Calamine, and antihistamines. This article says it got worse again in the end of 2014. Have another MD apt at 2pm today. Please, I welcome relief!!

Kansas State University Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service
The oak leaf itch mite, Pyemotes herfsi, is a tiny mite that causes itching and painful bites on humans. Intense scratching may lead to secondary bacterial infections.
Pyemotes herfsi was responsible for widespread outbreaks of itching bites in Midwestern communities in 2004 and 2007. By late summer 2014, populations had again reached significant levels, and based on complaints from northeast Kansas, the mite's presence was confirmed by the Insect Diagnostic Lab at Kansas State University.
Pyemotes herfsi is a European mite species closely related to the straw itch mite, Pyemotes tritici, which occasionally pesters farmers. The tiny, 0.2 mm (1/125 inch) long mite is barely visible to the naked eye. Its bite causes a raised, red area with a small, centralized blister that is itchy and painful when scratched. Bites appear 10 to 16 hours after exposure when they start to itch.
Unlike chigger bites, which are commonly restricted to areas under tight clothing such as belts, underwear or socks, oak leaf itch mite bites appear where clothing is loose, usually at the neck, shoulder and chest. Bites are found on the upper body because itch mites drop from canopies of infested trees. Studies estimated the number of mites dropping from large pin oaks in Nebraska during the previous outbreak to exceed 300,000 mites per tree per day.
In the Midwest, oak leaf itch mites emerge in late July and continue through the summer. Bite problems intensify in the fall with increased gardening activities, mainly the handling of mite-infested leaves (Figure 1).
A mated female searches for hosts on which to feed, usually insect larvae living within straw, seeds, and plant galls. In recent outbreaks, itch mites were found preying on midge larvae, which are responsible for gall formation on the margins of oak leaves. Galls appear as thickened areas on leaves and occur mainly pin oaks but also on red oaks and black oaks (Figure 2).
Life Cycle
The female mite enters the gall through small openings. A potent neurotoxin in her saliva paralyzes the midge larva. Once the female starts to feed, she develops about 200 offspring. In seven days, her progeny — of which 5 to 10 percent are males — are ready to emerge as fully developed adults. Males emerge first, mate with the females, and die without feeding. Newly emerged mated females then disperse in search of new hosts. The tiny mites may be carried by the wind for hundreds of yards before landing on humans and pets on which they try to feed.
Because of the large number of offspring and 7-day life cycle, oak leaf itch mites have one of the highest rates of population increase. On the other hand, the host gall-making midge produces only one generation per year (Figure 3). Mature midge larvae drop from the galls in late fall and appear to spend the winter protected in the ground. In spring, adult midges emerge from hibernation and form mating swarms. Mated females fly up trees where they lay eggs on developing leaves. Emerged larvae inject hormone-containing saliva into leaf margins, which causes edges to curl and form the galls where larvae develop until they drop to the ground in late fall.
Itch mites are predators, maintaining populations in a given habitat in extremely low numbers. Once significant numbers of a suitable host are found, mites multiply rapidly. The unofficial designation of Pymotes herfsi as the oak leaf itch mite can be misleading. Although high populations (major outbreaks) of this mite have been associated with the midge species Contarinia sp. whose larvae (maggots) are responsible for producing oak leaf margin galls, P. herfsi appears to be more of a generalist predator. That is, these mites have been documented as subsisting on a wide variety of host species: the larvae of furniture beetles, rice and granary weevils, oriental fruit moths, pine tip moths and hackberry
Figure 1. Infested oak leaf.
Figure 2. Close-up of gall on leaf margin.
Oak Leaf Itch Mite
nipplegall psyllids. A further implication of their adaptability and opportunistic nature was documented from Illinois where in 2007, they were found feeding on the eggs of periodical cicadas.
Control
Little is known about how to control these mites or how to protect humans from their bites. Typical spray applications are not effective because mites are protected within galls. Midges feeding on tree leaves provide a better target for controlling mites. University of Nebraska researchers are exploring the use of insecticides to control midges as they overwinter in the soil or before they swarm oak trees to lay eggs.
Oak leaf itch mites bites may be confused with bites from other insects and mites, such as scabies, chiggers and bird mites, but clinical signs are different and occur on different parts of the body. In addition, oak leaf itch mite bites occur in epidemic form, whereas bites from other agents generally
Revised by Robert J. Bauernfeind, Entomologist
from original by Alberto B. Broce, Kansas State University, and James Kalisch, University of Nebraskaare localized. Avoiding or reducing time spent under or near oak trees known to be infested with itch mites is one of the best ways to reduce bites. Bathing — and changing and washing clothes — after exposure to mite habitats is highly recommended.
DEET-based repellents provide mixed results. They may fail when relied on for complete bite protection. Repellants are more effective when used in combination with other protection practices.
Doctors recommend several remedies for relief from itching and other symptoms. Some of these medications require a physician’s prescription:
• Cortisone cream
• Cortisone orally (although rarely needed)
• Claritin 10 mg, daily, or other antihistamines
• Calamine lotion

Hi everyone- wanted to post real quick. I lost another lb overnight bringing my current loss to 11.5 lbs. it is very obvious to me that Medi is really working. Clothes are getting bigger and with the vitamin and lipotropic (sp?) injections I feel relatively good. I'm just STARVING for some reason. I just know that for me to really be successful I can't give in to any cravings. Or eat off schedule. So I am just taking it an hour, a minute at a time today. Have a great weekend everyone! I only weigh at medi right now and since they are closed Sat & Sun I won't post a weigh in till Monday. Blessings! Kat
