Hi, just dropping by for a quick check in.

No loss today, but no gain. I didn't figure I would since I dropped 2.4 pounds yesterday. Still praying for Twoterville! I can't express how important that is to me.

Maybe I can dream of Onderland???? Nah, too soon

Have fun at all of your SB parties. I opted to stay home so I wouldn't be tempted to cheat - I know I would. Next year I am going to be a party animal!

I was up this morning to 182 (1.5lbs). I am not worried though. Body is adjusting to the fast drop probably. Also, yesterday was reintroduction of food after the juice "fast".

Hi everyone!

Marilee I'm with you those dorito's commercials are funny! So was the teleflora one with Faith Hill....most of the others though have just been WEIRD!

I was at 228 this am...well short of my goal of 226...but at least I didn't gain. I'm really not worried I know my body is just adjusting to all of the changes and I FEEL so much better. I know I'm losing inches too....so it's all good. It's a marathon not a sprint...right?!?!?!

Monday...again.

well, i did have a nice lunch in a neighborhood, diner yesterday: 2 cheeseburgers with a sunny side egg on each one with an obbligatory slice of tom and onion under each. I did NOT eat all the onion. I washed it down with water, seltzer and a cup of joe with 1/2 & 1/2 (1 tsp) I was so busy with the computer, that I did not have dinner. It is beginning to reap benefits after all. Eventually, i will get used to having it in my house (and in my boudoir.) It's "food bill" coupled with the cable tv should run me about $115.00 a month for the first year. I will be spending less time at work chatting with y'all, and more time at home with y'all. I hope we all have a great on-plan day. FF

Well there you go Slimlizzie,with your Packers! Yay! I was rootin' for them too! I caved in a bit for SB....but back on plan today! Looks like a lot of you kept it cool and LC (I had baby back ribs, but also had guac&chips & M&Ms after Emimen did his Detroit commercial).

Did Planet Fitness on both weekend days with hubby (20 min eliptical, 30 min treadmill both times)...so I hope the damage isn't too bad.

Marilee, you have a great milestone coming up, getting into Twoderland!!

It's a new week everyone, do your best!

hoping to get back to 207 by friday...may have an egg fast day this week...i think it's gonna be necessary :blush:

let's all have a good recovery week!

i do not think we have to apologize for SUPERBOWL indulgence.

It seems to be an extremely important part of the American way of life.I think SUPERBOWL SUNDAY will eventually be declared a National Holiday. And, if it necessitates going off the deep end a bit...so be it. I know we are all going to pull ourselves from the carb abyss and carry on. FF

We went to a friends home (big Screen) meatballs, Italian beef,deviled eggs, Ramen coleslaw, a bite of potato salad,few chips, cheese and liversausage and Wisconsin Kringle
back on plan ...it is hard to eat out even if it is low carb..some people just love salt and put lotsa salt in the food.

Well I did really well yesterday, did over eat but all LC and a few glasses of wine without much damage. Wish my team did as well But it was a good game. Sounds like everyone else do well also. Just glad I didn't have the damage that I had over the holidays.

Hi, all! Checking in and catching up. No weight loss news to report. I weigh in twice a week and the average weekly weight hasn't changed since I lost a pound over Thanksgiving week. Despite my new exercise routine. Which is frustrating. I really think going through menopause messes with everything in your body, but I'm not sure what I can do about it, other than stay the course.

Superbowl was disappointing. Not nearly enough opportunities to spin my Terrible Towel -- and I was so looking forward to that extra exercise. ;-)

Marilee, I've got my fingers crossed that you make it to Twoterville soon!

I forgot to weigh this a.m. since time was an issue. I also had cheated a bit yesterday with peanut butter on celery and spoonfuls of pbutter. Today, the reigns are pulled in.

We watched the game last night and I can say it was a good game even though I am not into football. I was really disappointed with the commercials though. None stuck out as far as I am concerned.

Go, Marilee, Go.

Happy Monday!

I agree with Vicki, the commercials were just plan weird last night, none of them very good.

Weighed this morning at 227.4.....so down a little bit. That might be from the 2 glasses of wine I had....but that was my only indulgence. I truly enjoy a glass or two of wine in the evening after work.....never more than that, 3 glasses messes up my sleep. I don't know though if that little indulgence though slows down weightloss...what do you guys think?????

Oh dear, tony8, I hope nobody was hurt and it gets sorted out soon.

I drink about a bottle of red per week on average - it definitely has slowed me down a little (think I've lost just over 1 lb per week over the last 11 months) but the flexibility enables me to enjoy my social life and stay on plan in the longer term. In that context, the slower losses are worth it for me. Good luck, whatever you decide .

Not a bad few days food-wise. Very hectic at work at the moment, so it's difficult to find the time to exercise (only twice last week, rather than 3 times). Hope to do better this week.

Going to the gym early this morning it's snowing again here but it's not supposed to be alot about 4-6 inches. I'm starting to feel sluggish from missing the gym so much because of the weather.

tony take care, we have alot of roofs collapseing around her too. This snow is causeing so much expensive damage for people.

clanger I like having my glasses of wine too. But I drink white wine, do you think red would be a better choice, I pretty much enjoy all types.

hi guys, the important thing is that no one got hurt and it was just "stuff" and buildings that were affected...

clanger, your rate of loss is exactly what the experts recommend for lasting results...good for you, girl!

lizzie, try to stay warm and congrats on the sausage fingers ;-)

hey misty, it's a bad year when 6 inches of snow seems like a dusting, isn't it?

hi lady, i'm no expert, but i've learned from other folks here that alcohol does slow down weight loss because it is the first thing the body burns for fuel if it is available...so making it available eliminates fat from being burned until the alcohol is gone...i'm not much of a drinker - i've got other snack monkeys on my back

vicki, you certainly deserved that treat - you've been doing great and that was a very reasonable reward...good for you!...

hey shadows!!!!!!!...great to see you...we miss you around here...happy to hear you haven't slipped - that's great...i have a long way to go, so i'll be here when you're ready to hit it hard again... :-)

marilee, i wanna eat at your house while you're not allowed to lose any weight!

Good morning! Down another .4 - come on body - GIVE IT UP!!!!

Tony - so sorry for the building collapses! Prayers to you that things will resolve quickly and not too expensively! Yes, you can come and eat at my house when I'm not permitted to lose any weight - BUT I'm not permitted to gain any, either!

Thankfully, I'm not a big drinker and when I do drink, I don't like wine so I'm off the hook (or should I say cork?)

Congratulations to the losers!!!!! and to those that are persevering. This is our year - I feel it in my bones.

Must get to work - TTYL

Love ya!!!!

Marilee, you're kidding me?!?!?! What a small world! Right on the border of Sun City & Surprise there's a really beautiful apartment community right at Litchfield Rd & Bell, next to the Irish Wolfhound???? I was the Property manager there until September when I was promoted to a larger community in Scottsdale!! OMG, we've probably shopped at the same Sprouts at the same time!

We should totally get together...I'm pretty crazy busy for the next two weeks, but PM me and maybe we can co-ordinate lunch one day!

Ok, so I just have to say...WTH?!?!!? Is there a full moon out tonight? Is there something in the water???? I has been the day from H#LL!

It has been one awful, mean, rude, obnoxious person right after the other!!!

Seriously! I've been bullied, threatened and yelled at by people who want to act like spoiled little children who can't have their way. NOTICE TO THE FREE WORLD: I am NOT your whipping post and it's NOT my fault if YOU don't like the terms of your lease that YOU freely signed and have now decided that you don't like....and YES...I meant it when I said you could call my boss and report me, or write a letter to the newspaper and complain about how mean I am, and by all means give your attorney my number. When he's finished explaining to you WHY your lease is a binding contract and you should grow up and act like a responsible adult then he can call me and schedule lunch!

Whew! I feel better now....thanks for letting me vent I've been holding that in all day!! I'm sorry if I frightened your children...I promise to behave now. :blush:

On the up side I've been really good about my diet today. (didn't have time to cheat) How's everyone else?
