Anyone else having this problem?

Way to go Partner! I know you are going to find that Hidden Carb and kick his Bee-Hind Before long I'll bet you will have a big "Whoosh!" and let go of those stubborn pounds. I started my WW/LC plan on Sunday so the scales will "tell the tale" in the morning. I've stayed on plan everyday since I started so we will see if I made the right decision to tweak my plan.

So if you all do not hear from me....at least you know why
We also have winter storm warnings too. I am still trying to decide if I am going to venture out on the roads in the morning because things are supposed to get pretty icy before the end of the day.

WoooHooo! Forget the scale. Smaller panties say it all. You know you have to have a major change to actually drop a panty size!

Hope Everyone has a great evening!

Funny story - I am sitting in my interview and I am wearing brand new slacks and kind of a black tank top also brand new. Over the tank top I am wearing a wool blend blazer that I used to wear for work a few years ago (kind of a bolero jacket.) I haven't worn this jacket for about 3 years, but it still had the dry cleaner tag on it today so I knew it was clean when I took it out of the closet. Since I was wearing a tank top (shell) I decided to put on two kinds of antiperspirant "just in case." As I am sitting in my interview - I start to smell something that I am pretty sure is.......body oderish smelling......OH MY GOD IS THAT COMING FROM ME?????? I realize that even though my jacket was fresh from the cleaners, it must have had some sort of BO smell in the armpits and now as I'm sitting in this interview - I can smell it. I am DYING. I don't know what to do. At one point, they leave me alone in the conf room and I whip out a mini perfume in my purse and "roll, roll, roll" thinking excessive perfume is better than BO any day!! I can't believe my beautiful little bolero jacket stinks like this! What happened?

I think I'm more upset about the jacket than the job.
Sorry about the jacket...I hope they didn't have a hidden camera in the room! lol!

Hidden Carbs are Evil!!! I was 5 weeks into LC and found out that I had 13 hidden carbs in my diet. I was eating 2 fiber gummies which contained 5 hidden carbs EACH..needless to say I Dont eat those anymore..also my 2 vitamins have 1 each and my teaspoon of coffee mate had 1 equaling '13 Hidden Carbs!' per day! Soooo for 5 weeks I was eating 33carb..I wined about it here about a week or so ago...

Today was beautiful outside..so I took advantage of it and did a 2 mile speed walk..almost a run..but not quite (I bounce around to much..lol)
My scale hasent moved today..and I almost cant stand the smells of eggs anymore...But I am staying strong and trying to keep moving..want to be 189.9 by the time my boyfriend comes back in 6 day.

Hey Sunny and Lisa ! Hope things are going well on your end. Is the scale moving for ya?

Hello all,
Well after another rough night with the treadmill and Jillian I was able to lose weight evenwhile TOM is here! I have finally made it below the weight in my siggie but I am not going to change it until after I am off of TOM. The family is finally feeling better and thank you to all the well wishes. I will make it through this weekend on plan even with a movie night with the hubby, a weekend without my kids and a girl's night out on Saturday. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Going to do my 2 mile walk now..before the kids come home and slam me with activities. I got a new ipod so that I can enjoy some music while I walk..maybe it will make the time go by faster. I am going to take a different route today so I can look at something different. Music and new houses to look at..should be a good day.

Having some great tunes to listen to def makes time go by, and if it's upbeat stuff it makes you walk faster Great job this week, partner! Where's Sunny????

Don't give up....you need to make them looser...pull the yarn a little higher than you are...keep trying it gets easier...
