Bit of a rough weekend Sat night went out with some friends who I have not seen in over 10 years, had 2 drinks, and a bit of popcorn. I never drink so I had no idea what to order, but definitely not beer. I had 2 of a drink called orange creamscicle. The scale was down this morning, but it could catch up with me, so wait and see. Today I was EXHAUSTED all day, I did not eat off plan, but I do feel I ate TOO much. I made a low carb casserole and I just kept eating. It is TOM and I was feeling tired and stressed and that is definitely a past trigger where I would eat a bag of chips. So I see an improvement in myself, but still need to do some work. Tomorrow is a new week! Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Things are still going good here Today was a huge success for me. We had a major event today. It was pretty much an all day thing there with eating two meals there in which I had no control over what was served and I did not go off plan. There was likely small amounts of hidden carbs in the legal foods I ate, but over all I am proud of myself. Crazy thing is, I didnt even want the other stuff!

Hi Em- tiredness has been a trigger for me in the past too. Good job sticking to LC choices

Mind if I join you ladies, I sure need support and accountability this new year. I finally found a plan that was really working for me and went down to 124 after months of not losing at all. Then last month I went back up to 135. So frustrated with myself on regaining. I live on a beautiful lake and would love to wear the new bathing suit that I bought last year, and still haven't worn. Read back from the beginning of the thread and it looks like your all doing great and very supportive.

Doin Okay I guess last Monday I weight 161 but tuesday I went to 160. Guess What I weight today--160!! That sounds about right, I have been losing around 1/2 a week or bouncing back!! Keeping fingers crossed that the scale will keep goind down. Anyhow workout today was the firm-total muscle shaping 50 min, and eating has been good.

ALso I watche Biggest Loser last night,that is inspiration for me. I know the show is tough but if they can do it so can I, just a different way!! I think they do low fat/low cal-not for me!!

I had a bad workout this morning, and I went into it knowing it was a bad idea.

I had a doctors appt this morning and had to have blood drawn, so it was a fasting appointment. That was at 8:30, then went to the gym. I managed to get in a back and bicep workout but lasted less than 10 minutes on the treadmill. I was HUNGRY!!

So i had some food and feel much better I felt so icky when i left the gym, i almost went through a drive-thru just to get some food in me.

The doctor was super pleased that I managed to lose weight over the holidays/death of my stepdad, he said he would have given me a pass if i put a couple pounds on

But, weight is going down, blood pressure is down and we'll find out about cholesterol and blood sugar tomorrow.

Have a good day everybody!

I was doing ok but today was almost an issue. TIRED and when I got home I was tempted I forgot to bring my supplements with me too work AND forgot to take my first dose this morning That might have been the issue.

I didn't indulge but wow how easy it was for my brain to momentarily flip into that frame of mind. UGH!

Hi Misty. Welcome!!
You will be in that suit by summer for sure. Hang it somewhere so you can look at it and sing "she wore an tidy bitty tiny weenie yellow polka dot bikini" 3 times a day!! You're bound to succeed!!

Me too-Boy Jillian was tough on her crew last night but the push does help some, I hate the one girl left-bad for her and another could have had her slot and had a chance to make their life better.

Hi ladies!
I love Biggest Loser. It makes me motivated and I always cry when I watch because I know how the contestants feel. Love Bob! I would definitely want him to be my trainer.

This morning weight check was down 2 ozs. Not what i wanted but at least its a loss. I was so motivated today that I went for a walk with my boys, ages 7 and 3, before I made dinner. It was really cold, but felt great. I'm going to try and take walks as much as I can, and the boys love it too.

Had a hardboiled egg and coffee with half n half. That was around 11 so I wasn't hungry for lunch.
Dinner I made broccoli cheddar soup, and i used half and half and a cup of milk so that had more carbs than i wanted. Still under my daily limit though.

Keep up all the good work!

Day 11

Fair day but made it thru

Cauliflower pizza is delicious but my crust needs some work. I put italian sausage on one pizza and eggplant on the other. I froze single size portions to take to work

Have a good night

Hi all Monday was okay I spent from 8:30-1:30 volunteering at a local cat rescue. I was there by myself and I did a LOT of work, there is about 80-100 cats there and it's a ton of cleaning!!! I also schlepped a ton of carriers, laundry, and litter boxes down stairs. Anyway that was my activity for the day, it's a lot of work!
Eating was okay, except I should have had some protein before leaving this morning. As it is I only had a coffee then came home at 1:45 and had a few pieces of chicken and a fat bomb. I made some bacon later on, spent $6 for 12 oz of uncured, organic bacon...oh my so delicious wish it wasn't so $$. So I ate some bacon and for dinner I made a hamburger, onion, cabbage stirfry with some soy sauce. I made sure not to over eat and have a nice big container of left overs! BONUS: my daughter loves this meal!
Tomorrow I am volunteering again, but other people will be there so it won't be so long. I am going to make sure to eat some breakfast before I go. I weighed this morning, but I honestly don't remember what it was!!! I will drink lots of water tonight, because dinner was a little salty. Hope everyone is good.
For pizza fix I make pizza topping casserole, just sauce on bottom of casserole dish, then layer cheese and toppings and bake until bubbly and browned, so GOOD!

Hi everyone. Today is day 12 and day 3 WITH NO WEIGHT LOSS I know my body is trying to catch up after losing 11 lbs so quickly but I am not a patient woman ahhh that felt good to get that off my chest

Doing ok. Remembered my supplements for work today. Hit the gym after work ran 1/2 mile then worked with a trainer for 45 minutes.
Pants feel so much better. I feel like I can wear them with counting the minutes until I can peel them off!!

Have a great evening. Hump day tomorrow. Counting the weeks until my Florida escape!!

I had the carb flu yesterday. Felt nauseous, lethargic, dull. Family got chinese on a whim, and I indulged. I've been so good for the last three months (minus Christmas and Turkey Day), and my body can't process all that crap. No more. I felt so much better today eating back on plan. 20 lbs or bust by April 18th, and no more chinese take-out.

Luca - I do feel better. I try to stay positive, because I get frustrated that I run so SLOW. And I am doing the C25K program to build up to actually running continuously. But it is nice to be running again and I hope to maintain the workouts to complete the program. My son wants me to run a 5K with him in Feb. I'm hoping to to do that, even if I do run the intervals and not run continuously throughout the entire 5K!

Snodancer - I HATE the carb flu...blech! I am glad you are back with determination!

Garden - Congrats on the loss! I like the idea of evening walks. Also, I try not to eat after about 6 or 6:30 pm anything, not just snacks.

Jan 2: 185.2 (SW)
Jan 3: 183.6 run intervals 1.8 miles
Jan 4: 182.2
Jan 5: 181.2 run intervals 2 miles
Jan 6: 180.0
Jan 7: 179.6 run intervals 2 miles
Jan 8: 180.4
Jan 9: 180.2 (run scheduled for tonight - date with the treadmill)

Menu Yesterday:
B: Coffee, HWC, CO & Splenda,
L: 12 medium wings w/ 2 1/2 oz ranch
D: 2/3 of OMM and 2 T cream cheese
S: 3 (whole) devilled eggs

10 8oz cups water - I did cut back on the water consumption after 6PM, but I think the extra food (read wings ) sabotaged a bigger weight loss. I'll take .2 though .

Goals: 155 by May 24 (Sexy for Memorial day weekend)
145 by July 26 (Sexier for week off in July/Aug)
