Good morning ladies! HAPPY FRIDAY!

Dani, how's the hula-hooping going? I think ANY form of exercise that gets someone up and moving is a good thing.....I used to be pretty good at hula-hooping.....wayyyy back in the day! It is excellent cardio....not to mention good for your waist!

Tracy, I LOVE Linda's recipes and web site, I'm always looking for recipes there! I haven't tried the chicken Satay.....might have to give that a whirl!

Tyl, I did some of the Callanetics arm exercises....OMG....It's scary good and bad how sore I am.....going to have to keep this up!! Cardio kick boxing?!?! That actually sounds GREAT....what a terrific way to work out frustration! Maybe I should try that....not that I have any frustrations to work out....or you know.....

Cathy, you are rocking this challenge!!!! What an inspiration you are!!

Marlette, you look FABULOUS!! I love your new Avi.....so nice to see you checking in! I hope you keep checking in with us!!

Well ladies, Happy Friday! I'm off to work, just wanted to pop in and say hello, I'll try to check back in later!!!

Tammy, the hula'ing is "ok"... I still suck.... a lot I used to be pretty good back in the day too! I still don't really understand what it is that I'm doing *wrong* so it's kinda frustrating but hysterical at the same time!

Surprisingly I had a pretty good week!

I only saw a .2 loss for the week, but better than nothing considering all of the craziness I've put myself through the weeks prior

What I am most proud of is getting back into exercise....the hula hooping is helping to fuel this desire for it because dangit, I wanna be good at it!
I worked out 4 days total, slow & easy, but I did it!

Feels REALLY good to be back on track and IN CONTROL!!!

sw: 228.0
cw: 227.8 >>>> 1pt.

exercise: 4 days >>>> 8 pts
food: 6 days >>>> 6pts

Found this on the Facebook: This could help get the water requirements in.

16 oz. upon waking - helps activate the internal organs for the day
8 oz. before each meal (total 24 oz) - helps with digestion
8 oz. before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
8 oz. before going to bed - helps avoid stroke and heart attacks

total: 56 oz. (less than 4 bottles of water for the day)

Is I've been reflecting on how I managed to lose so well this week. Lol

I 'like' a few (read tons) of weight loss pages on fb... One of those pages is doing a challenge this month... Eat 1 all plant based meals a day.. Well I thought that was ridiculous but in my act book it has me doing an exercise where I have to make uncomfortable committed actions ...and one of the examples was 'eat a plate of veggies for dinner' ugh! So I have spent the last 4 days eating 1 plant based meal a day...usually lunch... And i wonder if that was the difference lol... I dunno but what a nice surprise this morning!

I had a pretty good week, but I am confused about the points. I ate on plan 7 days, exercised 2 days and am down 6 lbs (to be fair, I lost 5 of them at the beginning of the last challenge and gained them back). Is that 15?

Quick check in! Down to 301.8 pounds. I am so close. I plan on working out more at school to see if I can break 300. I am back to sleeping 3-5 hours a night, so if it was wasn't for my bff pushing me, I probably wouldn't be getting anywhere with the exercise.

This weeks points. 3rd time editing lol Didn't realize we changed the points lol
4 workouts =8 points
eating on plan= 7
weight loss =1
16 points

MIA for a few days but I will check-in.

For various reasons, I had a DXA scan last week and I'm still by the results so I won't be able to write it up for a while.

The results indicate that I've lost enough of my muscle mass and power to meet the (several) international definitions of sarcopenia - I've less than a notional Everywoman who is 30+yrs older than I am.

I got the rote lecture to lose weight and exercise more. Currently, I weigh 53kgs at 164.5cms (117lbs at 5'4+) and kayak 4 days a week, walk approx. 5 miles in the course of my day, and weight train at the gym.

I did ask how much weight the HCP recommended that I should lose and how should I do it without running the risk of losing more lean body mass but there wasn't really an answer. But she did stress the importance of trying to walk for 20mins a day. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

With all of the odd news about protein last week, I wouldn't know whether to reduce my protein intake (I'm just into the middle-age bracket of people who should reduce it), increase it in the hope of adding to my scant amount of muscle or leave well alone.

As it is, I've no idea if I should modify my WOE and type of activity which is why I need to think for a few more days.

Best wishes to everyone and I will catch-up when things feel less confusing.

Dec 2014 A DXA scan reported very low muscle mass (sarcopenia) so I'm still thinking about how to cope with that. I have some joint surgery to schedule. I may miss questions that people ask me or personals. Apologies if I do, it's not intentional.

My goodness Slow, that is unsettling news. I remember when you got the other measurement and it seemed like it couldn't be true. I wish you the best in getting this figured out.

Well the scales are being mean!! I've been true to plan and it was trying to tell me Friday that I was up nearly two pounds....this morning it has me right back where I was at, at 218. I'm hoping now that I'm off the antibiotic and flushing my system that I can get a nice whoosh going!! The water challenge is just what I need....although I HATE plain water!
Everyone is doing GREAT on this new challenge.....I need to step up my game!

Gina, Tyl and LaVella you guys are AWESOME with those losses....Way to go!!!

Slowsure, you're 5'4 and 117 and they're telling you need to LOSE more weight?!?!?! I just can't imagine that.....

I have to share with you ladies the BEST SOUP recipe....this was shared on another thread, with the adaptation to make it low carb and I made it this weekend....it's seriously incredible!!!!

Zuppa Tuscana

4 slices bacon, diced (I made more and use some to top the soup afterwards)
1 lb ground hot Italian sausage
1 large yellow onion, diced (I only used 1/2 an onion)
4 cloves garlic, minced (I used the preminced jar kind)
4 cups (32 oz) chicken stock
3 cups russet potatoes, cubed (I used 1 bag frozen cauliflower pre-steamed and 1 bag radishes that I quartered and roasted with olive oil and thyme in the oven @350 for 20 minutes till browned)
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 cups kale, in bite size pieces (I used 1 bag cut spinach, thawed and drained)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
parmesan cheese, grated

In a large pot, cook the bacon until crispy. Drain the grease. Add the sausage, breaking it apart as it cooks. Once sausage is browned and crumbled, drain off grease leaving a tbsp to saute the onion.

Push the sausage and bacon to the edge of the pot and add the onion to the center; saute until translucent; add garlic; saute until fragrant.

Stir in the stock and potatoes (cauliflower and roasted radishes) , season with salt and pepper, and simmer for about 20 minutes.l

Add kale (spinach) and heavy whipping cream. Bring to a simmer. Top with parmesan cheese (and extra bacon) when serving.

If you like soup, you MUST try this!

Have a great day!

Good morning ladies,

How's everyone doing?? Cutting the crap I hope????

Tyl, this water challenge has been AMAZING.....I've been doing it....every single day! I wasn't sure I could because I really hate plain water... Seriously, I always flavor it with SOMETHING.....but not this week....not even a little, and you know what??? I really do feel the difference!

Well Kids, Just a quick check in, I'm headed off to an all day meeting with the corporate folks....I have to drive at least an hour (if I'm lucky) across LA in traffic to get there! They'll bring in lunch though and they promised me a nice Fajita / Salad bar so I'll have plenty of great choices. My daughter will be there to (We work for the same company) so at least we'll get to spend the day together.....even if it is a corporate meeting!

I'll check in later, have a great day!!

Tammy~ Trying to keep the crap cut here TOM showed up a few days early and I am WAY grouchy and craving junk...
So glad to hear that you are having success with the water challenge! I dunno what I would do without my water, I love it so much.
Hoping your meeting went smoothly and you got to enjoy some time with your lovely DD....and that you didn't feel the urge to run anyone over in LA traffic

Cle~ safe travels, friend!
------------------------------------

I weighed today for what will be the last time...for a week. Daily weigher here I use Thursday's as an official weigh date usually, but always get on the scale every day to just keep things real.. However, I am trying really hard to concentrate on other areas of this journey and the daily weighing is screwing with my head. So, I'm letting it go. I just might die from the anxiety

Tammy, I hope you had a nice time with you daughter at the meeting. Your lunch sounds good. I was at an all-day thing with catered lunch too and it was just OK.

Danielle, I hope you are still with us and not passed out from no weigh anxiety.

I am doing much better this time than the last challenge. I went back to JUDDD as a way to accommodate some new dietary restrictions. Straight low carb is HARD for me without dairy. I have 5 down days under my belt so far and am down 9 lbs (5 I lost on the last challenge, but then let them come back). I have done JUDDD before and know it won't keep that pace, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

I quit dairy because I figured out it was causing my asthma with exercise, but another welcome side effect is a huge reduction in night time cravings. I used to prowl around the kitchen after dinner (or really any meal) needing something and going back over and over again for another bite, or spoonful, or whatever. I still enjoy deserts (and have ONE on up days), but I don't feel anymore like I HAVE to have something. It is a welcome change.

It is gorgeous here today. I think I'll head out for a walk. Have a great evening everyone.
