That is funny that the fortune actually said that! haha

Oh it was so cute when my husband got home. All three of them basically attacked him when he walked in the door. The boys knocked him over and my little 8 month old crawled right over and wouldn't leave his side. They did okay while he was gone, but it was definitely harder on my 4 year old. He is a little daddy's boy and missed having him around.

My in laws were here today. We had a nice lunch out and then went shopping. Oh and don't worry, you were definitely not the only one who wasn't good! I ate like it was going out of style His parents always take us out to a nice restaurant, which is something we rarely do with the kids, so I felt a little justified! haha. Do I have to weigh in tomorrow?! j/k

277

I have about 120 - 130 pounds to lose but I will be thrilled to lose 100!!

Regina~
So this morning the scale said 273. I am happy but I feel that is pretty low since I just started. I am wondering if I am eating enough...

Hey I think that is great! It's 4 lbs of fat not water at this point. The first week you always lose a lot but its mostly water so now your actually losing fat!

i think you did

Same this week as last, so need to lose 2 lbs this week

But it was an ugly week for eating.........too many restaurants and 2 days and nights of ice cream machine available............

This week starts county fair, so lots to do, and not enough time to eat sometimes.

Hey gals!


So I am going to join TOPS next week. It is like a weigh watcher knock off LOL

I am not spending that much for WW when all I want to do is have to go through the torture of a public weigh in

So that will be on Wednesday. Contemplating fattening up for the first weigh in

Wow, I have never heard of TOPS. I just googled it and it looks really cool! Yeah, WW is a little on the pricey side. I know what you mean, it's the public weigh in that keeps me going...LOL.

Did you have your first meeting yesterday? You'll have to let me know how it goes!

Yeah it super cheap! The local one here is $29 for the year and then $1 per week. I am not sure what they preach I will low carb but I still think that the weigh in will be great for me. Plus I am sure they have lots of great tips too!

There is a local one here, but it is during the work-day, so I don't have any incliniation to go, because that is major drawback.
the people I know joined, seem to keep going, so most like it.

Week 3

Moring all,

I hope everybody has a great Sunday! This morning I got on the scale and it says 270.5. I need to learn to only check once a a week as it kept staying the same up going up until yesterday.

I've been doing some reading on the boards and I noticed a few different weightloss plans, one was eat fat lose fat which is based on Coconut Oil and the other was JUDDD, up days, down days. It looks like it can still be incorporated with mainly low carb but I might be able to incorporate some fruits and little bit of whole grain carbs and still lose. I know I have to stay away from white flour and white sugar, that is like poison and a little ALWAYS leads to a lot, my system goes into a total tail spin that I have a hard time breaking out of.

Has anybody tried either of these programs?

Regina~

Well Rosehip does the JUDDD but she hasn't been in here to visit in awhile

Come back Rosehip!!!


The other plan ....I don't know anyone that is on so no help really on either from me. Just give them a try and see if it is something you could do for awhile is my best advice


I will weigh in tomorrow but also on Wednesday when I go to TOPS.

I am not even posting a plan this week....I am so unmotivated! Hoping TOPS gets me recharged again!

What do you all have planned?

Lotus,

I love TOPS...super cheap but you still get the group weigh in like WW (which is way to expensiv)e! For a while I was lead in a TOPS group at work but then everybody stopped coming so it sort of fizzled out. Going to try the JUDDD as well as keeping somewhat low on the carbs. I adjusted my final weight to 172, I think at my age that is pretty reasonable

Hey! Sorry, I completely forgot to check in yesterday I weighed in this morning and I'm the same. I'm hoping for a better week, so far today has been going well!

My only plan for this week is to stay on plan! One day of eating not so good turned into the whole week...yikes! I can't let that happen again.

Tonight will be a test of my will (we are going to the fair)...stay away funnel cake!!!!

Lotus - Great job! Anything going in the downward direction is good!

I resisted the funnel cake!!! ...but the ice cream cone got me...LOL. I figured the 10 pounds I sweat off in the heat made up for it?? Maybe? haha

Karen - I don't know how you do it! We only made it a few hours in that heat. Do they have indoor spots you can cool off a bit?

Thanks! haha. Oh, how was TOPS?! I'm so curious about this. WW is so $$, might have to try it out!

The kids had a blast! The family favorite was walking through the barn and seeing the sheep. They had fans attached to the front of their pens, and the sheep would "baaaa" right in the fan. My boys laughed about that all night We also got to see our first demolition derby. All in all it was a great night!

Karen - so funny!

Okay, back to school work for me

Oh that would be so funny seeing the sheep do that!!!


Did I know you were taking classes?


So tops was actually good. It is not as organized with the eating plan I don't think as WW but I wasn't going to follow it anyway so I don't mind. The other thing that I had to just get over was that this particular meeting was 99% over 70 years old All super nice though I don't know what I was expecting I am guessing the 6 pm meeting is a little younger but whatever.
You weigh in and then at the start of the meeting they went around the room and asked everyone if they had a loss or a gain. But that is just what I need? Public humiliation We will see how it goes!

It's funny you mention that (about the ages) because I just looked up where our local TOPS is, and it looks like they meet at the local seniors center. It's mostly an older crowd at my WW meeting as well.

That is so funny, I am the same exact way with weighing in! I told my hubby it's so sad I have to resort to weighing myself in front of strangers to get my butt motivated

Oh yeah, I'm not sure if I mentioned I was taking classes or not. I'm taking an online course in medical transcription/editing. I need a work-at-home job or something that would be really flexible because of my oldest son. I'm hoping I'll be able to finish up in the next couple of months and have a job lined up by late fall.

Great job Annie!!

I'm down a pound this week. I'm happy to see some movement, since I was the same last week.

How was everyone's week?

Restaurants two days in a row, so, of course, scale went up 1# instead of down.............. Sister goes back to Canada next week, and that helps me maintain regular eating schedule............
