Springing Into Action
 
Welcome, welcome, welcome!

Here's our new challenge. It's a 7 week challenge running from 2/20 - 4/10.

This challenge is open to old friends and new friends! We love when new people join us so please don't be shy. Follow whatever plan floats your boat. We are here to support and encourage each other. Weigh ins will be every Wednesday.

I haven't weighed yet today so I'll start the chart with yesterday's weight and then come back and update if I need to.

FF..........191

FatFatnomore 02-20-2013 05:12 AM

Ok so I didn't quite reach my goal for our last challenge. (Or anywhere near it) But now that I'm doing M&E I'm confident that I'll see more movement on the scale for this challenge.

My goal is to reach 170 by the end of this challenge.

Menu today is:
B: 4 scrambled eggs, coffee
L: chicken broth with garlic
D: 4 scrambled eggs

I woke up feeling like I'm TOTALLY retaining water today (my eyes are so puffy) so I'm aiming for a gallon of water today to flush it out.

FF- I hear you I always get that way right before TOM.

So I chickened out yesterday telling my employer I am quitting but I did it this morning and feel better. At least its out there. THis way I can start focusing on me again without being worn out.

Menu today
B-string cheese coffee
L-salad
S-yogurt
D-I am thinking hot dogs because I never made them yesterday.

Didn't weight this morning will do it this afternoon. Off to work...only 7 more days.

Awesome! I'm sure it's a huge weight off your back now that you've told your boss you're leaving. Good job!

Big hugs from me too Beach! :hugs: I could sense your frustration and sadness through your post, and yet you still managed to crack me up with your "sperm donor" reference. lol I love you, sista!

FatFatnomore 02-21-2013 07:06 AM

Morning ladies! Well, I was down to 189.6 this morning, wahoo! Finally back in the 180's.

BUT I'm going away on a girls weekend starting this afternoon and you know that will involve wine...so I probably won't see the 180's for very long. Oh well, I'll stick to LC plus wine and hopefully the damage won't be too bad, and then I'll jump right back to meat and eggs next week.

Have a great weekend and I'll check in with you Sunday night or Monday!

Fit2010 02-21-2013 12:41 PM

Marking my place on this site. Will weigh tomorrow. Didn't reach my goal for the first challenge either. Got events coming up this summer that I want to feel good about how I look....I'm not to happy with this present look!

Low Carb Librarian 02-21-2013 10:19 PM

Hey all! Marking my spot too. Maybe I will get on the scale... But maybe not.
I don't want to be too hard on myself this round.

The next one is really important to me because it will end around my B-day!
I want to be thin for my b-day present!

beachagain 02-22-2013 05:37 AM

I hear ya, LC...I am tired of fighting myself, but my birthday is in April and I don't want to be a fatty :sad:

:hugs:

I have planned my menu, bought my food, tomorrow need to make and divide up my portions, and package them so they are ready to go. PLANNING is huge to being successful!! This challenge ends very close my DD#2's birthday and I would love to be at 165 or less by then!! I have been staying in the low 180's lately and just want to slip right through the 170's. Went shopping today and saw that swimsuits, shorts, tank tops, and capris are on the rack....I need to get toned up ASAP!! How about you?!?

Ugh... Have had a migraine for 5 days! I came into work today feeling horrible. I saw that one coworker had brought in one of my favorite licorice candies. I ate a few and felt much better... Went out and got a carb lunch too. Feel great, but dreading going back to LC... I hate migraines and I am afraid that it was part of my withdrawal.

Low Carb Librarian 02-26-2013 05:12 PM

Did all you ditch me or something!?!? :hyst:

I have been checking this thread for days... Nothin!

But, hey, I don't have anything to say either:dunno:
I gave up LC today (again) and I have no plans on going back.

I may do JUDDD ... But I am not telling anyone in real life.

Hope you all are doing well!
:heart:

Oops, wrong way! Been away skiing for 4 days so it's vacation weight. Starting the 21 day sugar detox next Monday and a 4 week beginner yoga course twice a week, so hopefully those will help. Hope everyone else is doing okay.

beachagain 02-27-2013 10:35 AM

sorry...just have way too much on my plate right now :sad:

Life has thrown up lots of pooo recently so eating on track has gone out of the window. I am hoping that things will settle down abit soon so my brain can refocus.

Low Carb Librarian 02-27-2013 08:22 PM

Yep, I am with you all on the plate full of poo.. Ha!

kittycitygirl 02-28-2013 04:30 AM

Not going to weigh until TOM is gone.
