I wanted to address some of the comments….I have to firure out how to get an account!!! LOL!!! This is what I wanted to post to them all…..let me know what you think!
Thank you BamaGal! Thank you for your help and for asking other to help to. I would not been able to reach as many people alone. Thank you for you positive thoughts on my road to recovery….it may be a long one.
It was my desire….to reach out to people that may suffer the same problems as me. You know….there are others….lots of others….I remember posting with Christin and Becky and then one day they were gone! They had health problems too….I didn’t listen. I was a newbie and was grateful for their help. I should have listened….I realize I can’t “should” on myself so I’m trying to move on but I really wanted to help just one person!
Heidi claims I was disgruntled and some one else said I should have kept my gripe with Heidi between the two of us…..funny…I clearly stated I simply wanted to help others. Heidi played the ban game with me….as she has done with many. One day my log in would not work…I sent a tech support message….got lots of emails from Heidi….I’ll post some here.
1slick chick…..I cannot thank you enough!! You are so amazing….your support is so appreciated…more than you will ever know!
I’m with you….I’ll pray that everyone will choose number 4 on your list! There is a huge caring low carb community where you can ask any question and get good sound and proven advise! And get to know someone like slick!!!
Jazzygirl….I am open to any questions you have….I’m more than happy to talk to you. It took me almost 10 months to lose 100 pounds. I started in June as well!! When I first started KK I was never advised to take vitamins nor see my doc. I did both those things however! I was only told to eat lean protein…..that is all! If I wanted to lose a lot really quickly…choose only KE. Only now are vitamins and low carb veggies suggested but not back then. My early days consisted of boiled chicken and deviled eggs….stay below 800 calories and never go above 20 grams of carbs were the instructions I got. I weighed every meal…counted every bite. I was made to feel like a failure if I could not stick with this and a success if I could go lower on the calories. I know some days were below 400. I would go to everyone’s fitday and see what they were eating!!! I felt I had to do the same!!!!
I found a challenge thread full of the most caring and compassionate ladies I had ever met…..some are friends still today. We learned from a very smart lady that we needed to up our fats and cycle between several plans like Protien Power and Atkins…I think making those changes really helped stop the dangerous path of my body consuming lean muscle….I owe a lot to those ladies!
I have lost ¾ of my hair and the loss of muscle will result in a surgery to repair muscle so weak that it cannot hold together. I don’t believe I ever mentioned heart problems….what I did say is that I’m very afraid….since I have lost quite a bit of muscle and my heart is a muscle….have I compromised my heart too?
This all happened rather suddenly…I understand this is normal….my doc had been seeing me every 3 months, blood and urine tests too….she was not too concerned until last Monday….now we are both concerned. There was no warning! Once muscle that has been compromised fails….the only recourse is to have it surgically repaired!! PLEASE make sure you are eating enough essential fats and calories!!!
Thanks 2big! I appreciate you support and prayers more than anything! I will make this my fight….to get back to healthy…..to help those that can’t see the truth yet. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else but I’m afraid it will.
Thanks to you too bluesuederebel…..again…I need all the prayers that I can get! I’m thankful to Amy for all that she had done….she’s a great friend!
Katinsac….thank you ….I do hope more than 1 see the light but I’d be happy with 1!!
Magicsmom…I was told on several occasions to drink Smooth Move tea or take some MOM for “potty” problems or to break a stall!!!! I never did that thank goodness but I know a lot that did! That is nothing short of teaching a new addiction!
Thanks to you too Mayberryfan!! I so remember reading your posts and enjoying them very much and then poof…you were gone! I’m glad you only stayed for 3 months before you realized there was a problem…..I did not. I appreciate you help and prayers too!!!
Thank Amy….for all you do!!!
