LOL thank vicki! back on track today. don't seem to be having as bad of cravings so hopefully the worst is passed. I didn't even check the scale today I don't think it will have anything nice to tell me so I will wait a few days. First thing this morning I got the kids ready got out of the house and went to the park to keep my mind off of any cravings I my have.I went to tim hortons. if you are not from the north you probly don't know that that is . but they have hands down THE BEST coffee ever. got a nice big cup and some wendy's burgers with not bun and all seems to be going good so far.

Where is everybody?

Well, I've almost lost all of the weight I regained last week while on vacation. It should be off by next Tuesday - weigh in day.

Everyone have a nice weekend!

I did it! I lost the 7 pounds I gained last week!

Now my goal is to lose 4-5 pounds by July 6th - follow-up doctor visit. Since it is only my second time seeing him, I want him to know I'm serious about my health so it will be good to be a lighter when I weigh in at their office.

How is everyone today?

Lz, Misty and Linda, we miss you and hope you are doing ok.


Have a great weekend!

Gibby, that's awesome.congrats on the 7 lb.

to everyone. I'm GS bound again and going to look for a sponsor. I have the hardest time staying in today. I'm always worried about tomorrow, the next event or the rest of my life. So for today I'm going to be quiet and just do it.

Have a great weekend.

Hi everyone! Just a reminder tomorow is weigh-in day.

I have had a very emotional, stressful last week and it hasn't stopped yet - but I am happy to announce that I did NOT go off my eating plan since my vacation ended last Sunday. For some reason, my mindset has changed and I didn't struggle this past week with my eating. Yes, I was tempted, but not nearly as bad as usual. We will see what tomorrow brings.

Til then....

I'd like to join! I'm new here. hehe

I am just starting this weight loss journey. I'm not going to use scales for a while, as I tend to over weigh myself when one is around. Same thing with the measuring tape. But, there are clothes in my closet that I MUST get back into before the summer is over. That is my FIRST goal!

I am 4 inches away from getting into those pants just right. How is that for a challenge? hehe I think I can take 4 inches down in a month or so. What do you think?

I'll be here all!

I'm here had a long weekend and I just can't get used to being back to work. But one good thing, it really help with the eating. No more picking at home.

Carrie you'll get into those pants in know time. Alot of people go by how they're clothes fix rather than use the scale. I wish I was one of them. I obsesed with the scale, I weigh everyday. And at this stage of lcing it's moving very slow.

Marilee hope your scales good to you. Congrats on staying on plan in a stressfull situation.

Congrats Gibby, WTG.

I lost 2.5 lbs at TOPS last night, stats updated. I hope the down swing continues. The challange will be at the minor league ball game on Sunday. It is difficult to find low carb items, besides, the prices are outrageous. I have tried taking food or water in but they search and throw away. I might be able to hide a bag or two of protein powder and just by a $5 bottle of water and refill from faucet.

Congratulations, Vicki!

Doing things in public is such a challenge. How rude of them to take your food and drink I understand why ($$$$$) but there should be exceptions.

Vicki wtg on weight loss. Wow 5 dollars for water, that like liquid gold But I bet you can get the protein powder in. It's awful how they charge so much at places like that.

Going to be in the 90's all weekend so that mean alot of people and family will be coming over. Some stay the whole weekend. I been doing so good on my weekend eating and now it's going to be so hard. I'm going to plan ahead thought. But all that yummy food others bring

Not necessarily. At least I hope not. Seems any of the "groups" I was a part of since coming here, has gone defunk in the past couple of months.

Well, tomorrow is the first day of summer and it appears as though this thread has died. I tried keeping us all together and it appears as though the interest has waned. I have joined another thread. Good luck everyone. See you on the flip side.

Sure, I'm game.

I joined another one, but heck, I can belong to more than one.

How are you doing Lizzie? I know you've been struggling.

Go ahead and start a new thread (I don't know how) and then let me know where you are.

I can belong to more than one too. I am just not going to try and keep this one afloat since I have already done that. Crass? Maybe. Oh well.

Misty.. I don't want to give up on this group either ..I started this thread so I will start another...I like the idea of..

no rules... except to encourage and support ( no stress)

Vicki.. I thank you for starting the one before when I also didn't know how to do it..and we thought it was the end..but we kept on keeping on!

Gibby: Yes I have been stuggling but I am back on track now.

How about a mix of our original name.."Keep on keeping on"..in July..

I was attracted to "keep on keeping on"..cause I do even after falling down I just keep on keeping on!

Anyone have any ideas for a name for our next thread??


Hope those who recently joined stay... it is summer and we all are busy...
