Sammi hang in there, I know it's frustrating.. I hung out for 10 days within the same .5 last month...I totally get it! You're doing great!!

Diana--send some of your exercise mojo over this way, I could really use it.

Wow, Diana. You're so full of energy! That's really great!

I've had a pretty quiet week, just been really tired all week so far, falling asleep early and sleeping later than I should. Yesterday was my 6mos. point since starting atkins! Yay I can't wait to see what the next 6 mos. hold.

Kathy

Thank you Danielle, the scale finally moved!

Diana you have so much energy. Your routine sounds like fun. I am starting to walk again , a little at a time. I hope my knees feel better as I lose more weight.

Have a good day everyone.

Diana--love the energy that clean eating brings us! Good for you for all that exercise, I love it.

Kathy--take care of yourself! This time of year does wonky things to us, so just take it easy for a ltitle bit until you feel better. WTG--a whole 6 months!

Sammi--I just saw your numbers on the other thread!!! So happy for you!!!

This week has flown, I cannot believe it's already Thursday. Today is my DS's 21st b-day...he's away at school a couple hours away so we won't get to celebrate together.. I'm alittle sad about that, but I keep trying to remind myself he'll be here for a couple days next week for the holiday.. I just can't believe I have a 21yo!

Have a great day, ladies!!

danielle - to your 21 yr old son ( will not tell ya how old my two sons are LOL) hope that he has a great b'day... and y'all have a great time when you get together...

kath - in 6 mos. we will all be healthier and much smaller...

well, did not go and do my WA this morning.. just way too cold so got to sleep in a tad..... but I am hoping that I will go this evening for the Zumba water class...... gosh 1st time I have missed my early morning WA in about 5 weeks....

I stayed the same today because I ate more than my 20 carbs yesterday.... do not know why... was hungry... maybe because of the cold weather...maybe because of all my energy... just do not know why... but what I did eat was healthy... so maybe that saved me..... LOL

back on track today.... will not eat off point today...... guess we all have those days......

everyone have a great day.... and if you are in cold brrrrr weather... keep warm..

Danielle, happy birthday to your son. I hope you enjoy his upcoming visit

Only one more day until the weekend; it's been a long week. Cannot wait to sleep in a bit Saturday. And looking forward to a christmas craft fair on Saturday

Very happy with the scale this morning, it's finally moving down

Diana, thank you! I don't blame you for not wanting to go to swim....everyone needs a rest day! The hungries seem to have been floating around cause I was real hungry yesterday too.

Kathy, thanks! I can't wait til he gets here, it's been a couple months since I've seen him! Enjoy your sleep this weekend, it HAS been a long week!

Home from a vacation.. Was a glutton.. ugh!!

Will post soon as I get back on track and write out my plan. I have nothing but social events coming up, but WILL start on my 5:2 plan with my first 'fast' day being Monday.. Trying to wean some of the sugar and carbs (tequila sunrises, martinis, desserts and much more) out of my body so that I can get to neutral. There's no way to go from 1,000carbs/5,000 calories a day to 50/1,500 without wanting to jump off a bridge!

Welcome back Judy. Did you bring back any of the warm weather with you? It has gotten so chilly here. What a perfect time of the year to travel, especially to Florida. Happy to have you back.

Starting fresh...

Weighed myself for the first time after my trip. I am 2 lbs higher than when I first started last month. I have a plan though, which I will outline on my weight loss journal. I am starting fresh so as not to beat myself up too badly:

Names ........ SW 10/27..........11/03...........11/10.........11/17.............11/24

01 Laura.........193.6...............190.6........... 192.0
02 Sammi .......233................231.6.............229... ........226.6
03 Danielle .....241................239.2.............238.4... .......235.4
04 Tammy .......253.................252..............249
05 Diana ..... ...278.3..............274.9...........274.4
06 Judy .................................................. ...................269.5
07 Kath17........340.4...............338.2........... .339.6

I had a delightful trip to beautiful Sanibel Island Florida with 2 of my "besties". Lovely condo on the gulf... Weather was great most of the time. Did a ton of water exercise, but not nearly enough to offset the high calorie/carb cocktails and delicious "island" food. Oh well.. No regrets, only memories. Now onto biz to work on my health!

Keep on keepin' on ladies!!

Judy

Good Morning,

We have been a little sad here. I have two dogs. One is 115 pounds and the puppy is 70 pounds. They were playing in the back yard and the puppy somehow was hurt. He has been limping for two days now. He is on pain medication but he still hurts. I feel so bad when he looks at me with such sad eyes. Hopefully he will recover, but the vet is concerned he might have been born with a defect in his shoulder. I really hope not. Both dogs are from rescues. Our older dog was so abused before we got him and the puppy was from a very bad breeder. We have worked so hard with both of them and they have done such a turn around. What great boys they are! I have bought them big antler bones to chew on for Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, here comes temptation number one. Next will be Christmas and New Years. This will be very hard but we can do this!! My menu is prepared and I am gung-ho. The most difficult part for me is the stuffing. I just love it. Oh well next year maybe I can have just a little bit.

Have a great day ladies.

Thank you everyone. It is so hard to keep him still. He has so much energy he just wants to bounce around all over the house. I try to keep him in his crate but I take him out every hour for a few minutes because the shoulder stiffens up. Then he runs all around and starts limping again. Hopefully time will heal him. He is just too cute!

Healing thoughts going out to your puppy Sammi! They're like our kids aren't they?

I'm hanging in here on my new 5:2 intermittent fasting plan. Today is my 2nd fast day for the week, and I will survive! They say to optimally weigh yourself monthly.. and the second best - weekly after your 2nd fast of the week. That will rarely be on a Sunday, so I'll have to improvise for our Sunday weigh in. I'll figure it out. I am one of the people who cannot weigh daily. The fluctuations would kill me.

The thing I love about the 5:2 plan is the flexibility. Although I am attempting to stick with LC mostly, there may be a day or two per week when I do have something carby So, on Thanksgiving I will have some goodies (within reason I hope).. My planned fast days for next week are Monday and Saturday.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Sammi--sorry about the doggy, I hope he gets to feeling better I want a dog SO badly, but seriously, I dunno what I would do if something happened to him. ....as the kids like to tease me, I'm already a neurotic human-mommy

Judy--so glad that you like how you're eating, that's so important!

Danielle, I'm a bit neurotic myself , but my dog doesn't mind. I'm always careful with him; he's always on a leash, Keep him safe in the car; Keep basement and attic off limits to him etc.. He is so full of love and playfulness and gets so much love he's a joy every day and makes me appreciate the simple joys; he makes me laugh and smile all the time . You have to get up and move around to keep up with his energy; which is the best thing. Clearly I'm a fan of having a dog! Even after I lost my last dog 2 years ago and was devestated I wouldn't have changed having him for a second. And now with my fur baby I appreciate every day with him and he's certainly having a great time. Neurotic or not ; he doesn' t know any different and is so worth having. That's my 2 cents.

I'm celebrating this morning! It looks like passing the 80 lb mark is sticking. And I've hit 20% of my body weight is gone. Grinning this morning !

YAY for you Kathy!!! Way to go!

I love dogs but have never owned one... I just can't imagine getting myself off the couch in the evening to walk it, or let it out. So, I am a cat owner - they are so much easier. I only have 1 now.. she is 15 and is still my little orange joy! We lost her calico sister a few months ago and I yearn to get another younger cat or kitten, but cats.. especially seniors, don't take well to new cats. I'll let her live out her life and then get 2 more. It's so wonderful to have furry unconditional love, isn't it??

Danielle, it is devastating when we lose them... but, they bring us so much joy during their time with us.. And, call me fickle, but when they leave us we fill the hole in our heart with another one.. They'd want us to be happy!

Okay, regarding weight loss... I did overdo it yesterday, but had a very fun day.. moderating today, will weigh in tomorrow as per the FOS Club guidelines.
