Hi there....haven't checked in for a few days because I'm not doing IF anymore, at least for awhile. I am pregnant!

Still early, so I'm still in the hoping it sticks phase, but I'm obviously not going to just eat in a small window at this point.

Hope everyone is surviving the weekend so far. Trying to get caught up on posts...crazy kind of day.

Calgone Take Me Away!

Just checking in also. With Sister Dear and her son here, it has been hectic last couple of days.

I think I have all necessary Christmas shopping done, or arrangements made for it.

Now two clients done today, 1 tomorrow and ugly one plugged in along the way, and I will be over the hump.

Wish me luck, and happy not-eating!!

Congratulations, Carrollee!! Great news. For sure you don't want to restrict eating during pregnancy, but be careful and stay away from the junk.

Karen, wishing you luck and hoping you have a great Christmas with your family and friends.

Wow, Danielle, it sounds like you had a hectic time of it for a few days. Hoping your trip was nice and enjoyable. This time of year can get frantic, that's for sure.

Leisa, hope you'll enjoy your trip and that you've gotten everything done and can relax for awhile.

Shadows, hope the season is being good to you. Have a Merry Christmas.

Scale is up to 154.5 this morning. I went off the hcg and I've eaten horribly the past couple of days. I decided I needed a break and I'll get back on plan the latter part of January. I was just spinning my wheels. I expect the scale to come back down in the next few days since I think a lot of the weight is water weight.

Carrollee, congratulations!

Danielle and Leisa, hope your travels go well.

Karen, it sounds like you are doing great.

Linda, thanks for your well wishes. I am still buried under work but did get my tree up finally on Saturday. Have company coming in from LA for the holiday. Hope they make it okay between CA's rain and flooding and our snow and ice.

IF? Not so much this week. I've been eating two meals about 12 hours apart most days, because I've been working such crazy hours. Hope to get back to it after this week is done.

Jan and all our other IFers, hope you're hanging in there for the holiday season.

Thanks everyone! I am going to be careful and stay away from junk. Last pregnancy I gained around 20 pounds and it was all off in about 2 weeks. I'm hoping for a repeat this time.

Didn't do my regular full 24 hour fast on Monday, so I am doing it today- will actually be about a 48 hour one by the time I break it tomorrow evening. Trying my hardest to stay off the scale until then- highly doubting that will happen though

Same craiziness, just a different day around here for me!! The "Christmas Crazies" have set in with all the daycare kiddos and they are straight off their rockers this week ahhh...to be young again. Trying to keep them busy working on Holiday Projects, but that seems to just remind them more of the pending event. For a change of pace we decided to take a walk to the post office to drop off some mail...too bad I didn't realize how windy it was out there- we managed though and for a treat we grabbed some hot chocolate from Dunkin Donuts to bring back with us. Also got some cute pictures of them for their parent gifts we are working on. All in a fun day's work!

Hoping all are doing well!

Ahhh, my scale went back up.
Not suprized. Havoc around here. Sister here from Canada with son to throw wrench in routines. Spent a day in Omaha when picking her up--ate LJS. Tuesday, she wanted to go shopping, so another restaurant. Yesterday outpatient for DH, so another day out with restaurant.

Then I got home, and sis had decided to "help me out" and totally re-organized my computer desk-top, etc. It wasn't broke.....Why fix it????

This is where I say "Bless her heart" to make it all better, right!!!!!????? So I am eating a dark chocolate bar with my coffee for breakfast. The devil with the scales today!!!

Okay, I am better now......

Karen, so sorry for your stress. I think we all have that at this time of year. People we aren't normally around a lot that push our buttons, lol.

I am busy baking (why???) and getting stuff ready for the big day. Gotta clean the house...nothing like waiting til the last minute, right?

I want you all to have the Merriest of Christmases and enjoy yourselves immensely. We can all worry about the "other stuff" later, lol.

Hi everyone. We have gotten about 7 inches of snow so far and it hasn't stopped and I'm supposed to be leaving tomorrow night for Honduras! I'm not sure how we're going to get the 30 miles to the church to get on the bus or how the bus is going to get down the mountain to Atlanta...once out of the mountains, we should be fine, but it's just getting out of these mountains safely that I'm worried about. I have not IF's the last two days but was doing well until then. TOM is here and all the prep for this trip and Christmas got the best of me. I hope to start back tomorrow. That is the plan. I have though maintained my weight...well at least I had until the last two days....don't know what my weight is now, but I"m sure a couple of good days will take care of that. Tomorrow, the plan is to try to get out of here and make it to the church where we will just stay until the bus leaves. We've been told we can stay there and take our sleeping bags. there are showers there so we can just sleep there. Bus is supposed to leave at 3:30 am Monday. Praying the weather doesn't mess with our plans! Hope you all have a great rest of the year. I will be back on Jan 4th!

If you maintained, that is the main thing. THat is called Damage control.
Good luck on the travel. Mother nature can put a crimp on those things, once in awhile.

I skipped BF yesterday, but drank an orange Crystal Light to keep my mother happy. Will have to wait and see tomorrow if the scale responds (and gets over the salt....I know salt is this mornings holdup)

welcome, Francie, we're glad to have you here. You don't have to have a window, and if what you are doing is helping you, that's wonderful. That's just kinda how we all feel around here. If it's working for you, that's what counts!!

I'm ashamed to say I gained a butt load during the week of Christmas, baking, tasting, eating, more eating. UGH. I was miserable yesterday from the sugar and other carbs. Back to low carb and I.F. today (I hope)....so far, so good. Window is now closed but might have a s/f hot cocoa later.

Leisa, I'm hoping you were able to get off to Honduras. This weather has messed with a lot of people out east.

Just waving as I go by today. BBL

Sorry about the gains, but here's hoping it goes right back down with some water

I held myself pretty accountable on Sunday-monday, and whooshed last night. So I only have 1 lb damage over Christmas. And Sister went back to Canada last night, so can get back to normal routine/eating now.

That should help me.

oh, that article was disturbing in so many ways!!!!

I managed to lose consistantly over the holidays (total of 5.2 pounds last week!!) and had a free meal last night. Nothing over the top but seeing an up this morning which is certainly water weight. Hoping for it to all whoosh away over the next day or two.

Karen~ sounds like you managed to do quite well!

francie~ Hi and Hello!

to Nady, Carrollee, Linda, Leisa, Jan, and anyone else I may forget (sorry!)!

Ok, scale was down to 156 this morning, but I will just keep plugging away. It's not easy after letting go for so long. Didn't end up doing an I.F. day yesterday after all, but maybe today. That carb monster is vicious.

Danielle, it sounds like you are really on top of things. Congratulations, girl!!

E.W. that link is so sad. That poor woman has herself convinced she's not damaging her health and she'll drop of a heart attack at any time....then what will happen to those darling children....and how will they learn to eat with all the junk in the house and her as an example? It's just incredibly heartbreaking.
On the other hand, hope you enjoyed your up day.

Karen, sounds like you did a fabulous job over the holidays. Glad your sister has gone home.

Hi to all the other I.F.er's out there. Hope now that Christmas is over, it will be easier for all of us!!

Congratulations, Linda, on that scale going down!

Hullo to all! I haven't been here much recently but do lurk on this thead as just like it.

When I come by I kind of get lost because so much has been posted between visits so end up not posting but wanted to say, "Happy New Year."

I don't do IF anymore, really, but still on the journey of managing my weight as it is important to me.

Keep dropping by. I don't really IF either, but this is a great group, and helps me keep motivated on my weight journey. (Not sure on how much loss is going on, but some)

I agree w/ Karen, Amandy. Stick around if we can help you at all. I am supposed to be I.F.ing, but struggling to get back to it.

I IF'ed yesterday but had s/f hot cocoa in the evening after the window closed. 25 calories and I thought it was better than a lot of other things I could have had. Scale stayed the same today.

I worked out for 40 min. yesterday on the treadmill at the gym. I would have thought I'd go down, but maybe tomorrow. Hope you all have a good day.

Can you tell me where they live? We're considering maybe spending 1/2 a year there or so. I'd love to have someone to contact who lives there if that is something you think they'd be open to.
