I hate sizing, I can wear a 18 in some clothes, but has to be a 20 in others, never makes sense to me, who the heck do they use to size their clothes after is what I'd like to know? Maybe whoever it is yo-yo's their weight like I do

Tasha- I have to get that bikini out in less than 4 weeks I have lost a lot of weight and done 2 of my 3 plastic surgeries but I will rock that flat stomach I have and don't care who will see the scar up my stomach from getting rid of all the skin. YOU too will rock that suit this summer!!!

I saw 189 on Sunday morning and again today. I hope it sticks around or a lower number shows up.

That's awesome Tania!!! I can't wait to weigh on Friday, staying off the scale until then. We have been toying with the idea of taking a girls trip back to Rosemary Beach in Florida again this year....end of April, that is not that far away

morning friends....

feeling pretty crappy today can't stay home because the auditors are here and my presence is requried, dang the luck. Neck hurts, head has so much pressure, not really having sinusy problems just yet other than headache and sore throat. Very achy and cold. WIsh I could go home and go back to bed.

Still on plan though, despite all that, I haven't gone off once, so 4 days in....anxious to see what kind of a dent I have put in my poundage tomorrow.

Not really sure what my menu is going to look like today. I don't really feel like eating breakfast this morning and when I went by the bank on my way to work, the stupid ATM was down, so....no monies to buy a salad. Not sure what I'm gonna do, may have to leave and go to KFC and get some grilled chicken and green beans maybe.??? I dunno.

Tonight's supper will consist of Parmesan crusted Tilapia with mashed cauliflower and a tsp of sour cream and a little butter.... YUM. Makes me hungry actually thinking about it.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Those cauli-tatoes sound yum! I need to make those again. last night I made delicious shrimp scampi. and put them over a tiny steak. (I was more lovin on the shrimp than the steak...)

It's fish day! I'm always down after eating fish for lunch or dinner, so since tomorrow is weigh day... I've been slacking on the water last few days, so that is a huge priority today... as soon as my coffee is gone...

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Hi! I'm in a funk. Haven't gotten on the scale in weeks. I just eat whatever I want. Wish me luck, I'm going to try and restart this weekend.

Tasha & tati_uru - I hope you both feel better soon. My husband was the only one in our house who got the flu this year.

Have a good weekend everyone! Liz

Hope everyone had a skinny weekend! I did a good job of not over eating the lc foods, just because i was home. Was actually pretty addicted to a new book series and cozy patio furniture, and come to think of it- i didn't really eat alot at all! (i know thats not good, either...)

I did go out on Saturday and had a few vodka tonics AND TOM started yesterday, so i'm going to really hunker down and stay off the scale until Friday. Hopefully!

Also trying to eat fish every other day for lunch to try and flush off any bloat I may be carrying around with me.

Please whoosh.... please please whoosh!!!

good morning all....

I posted February's chart above. Working on March's, so let me know what your March goal will be.

Back to work today, have gotten over the stomach sickness and as of last night, now have the head crap that is going around Can't win for losin it seems. I am however still on plan. Haven't gotten off at all....Day 8 for me!

Today's menu:

B: 1 boiled egg, 2 pieces bacon, crystal lite peach tea
L: Garlic and butter tilapia, crystal lite peach tea
D: not sure yet, don't feel good, so may be an omelet. Simple and fast.

Hope everyone has a great day. I'm to the point now that I'm not real hungry anymore and the cravings aren't as bad. I see the food I don't need and it doesn't just scream my name anymore, more like a whisper

Great Job sticking with it!!! Awesome with the Tilapia too- i'm having the same for lunch.

That whispering food will still be there later, when it's more acceptable to eat a bite. I unintentionally cheated last weekend. Went to pf changs anticipating lettuce wraps, and ordered other foods that came out with breading and decadent sauces. The guilt was as bad as the bellyache that followed. I could have had a little of that later, i didn't need to have it then and there. But- a bit stronger and wise for the future for having realized my mistake.

I was too, started over time after time. I finally just made up my mind. I want to be thin, I want to look good in my clothes, I want to spend a summer without being so self conscious about my fat rolls or boobs hanging out. I want to be able to play with my granddaughter without getting so hot and out of breath. I just want to be normal. SO....don't see anyone standing in line to do it for me, so must do myself!!!

Good morning friends...

Feeling a tad bit better this morning, can breathe better and only have a nagging headache instead of a pounding one. Guess that's improvement

Day 9 for me....got on the scale this morning, which I should know better, but I did it anyway, and was up a pound. Not sure what's up with that Not going to stress over it though, could be any number of things, so going to wait until Friday!

Today's menu:

B: nothing, forgot, had it in the fridge, but ran off without it
L: salad with ranch dressing
D: leftover baked chicken and asparagus

Ended up making baked chicken last night for supper, had enough energy to get off the couch, plop it on a baking sheet, season and let it cook for an hour topped it off with spinach, so not too bad of an evening.

So tired these days, not sure if it is being sick for so many days now or what, just don't have any energy, don't feel like moving, let alone getting up and being productive. Does anyone else do this? Once upon a time my doctor put me on the phentermine combo and I tell you what, I was amazed, I told my husband I didn't even know what it felt like to feel good....I loved being on that, lost a lot of weight too, but the side affects kinda scared me, so.... always a drawback to every plus.

Hope everyone has a great day, gotta run!

Tasha - have you had your blood sugar checked? Not to scare you but when my sugar is high, I have no energy. I am like you - almost forget what it is like to feel good. It takes all the energy I have to clean house. etc. But when my sugar is good, I feel better.

I even tried one of those 5 hour energy drinks - did not do much

yeah, it was ok. I have been told it may be from my thyroid, or could be the high blood pressure medicines I'm on, or a combination of both. I just know it sucks. I had so much energy I didn't even want to come in the house when it was dark, I worked outside from sun-up to sundown...nonstop and loved it. That's when I had also lost about 50 pounds....felt wonderful. Would give anything to feel like that again.
