You ladies have been chatty today! I read through and will try to get replies in later. I have to clean house and get some work done.

Down .8 today. Almost a pound!

I also took the bra extender off my bra today, that made me happy. It's amazing all the little things that no one else sees that show us that we are getting smaller and making changes.

I have also noticed the back fat had turned into actually rolls. That I could have lived without. At least it is squishy!

to improve my overall health
to take care of my "temple"

My not so noble reasons...
In a month there is a huge meeting where I will see people I only see once a year...
In August I have a 25 year high school get together/reunion...not sure if I'm going to that...but looking more fit would help me go...
I am the librarian at school...I'd love to knock em all off there feet by being much skinnier when school starts!
They will be taking pictures for the website when school starts!!
I'd love to look great for Christmas pictures this year!! haha

Not to mention all the clothes in my closet that are too small. My clothes range from size 14 to size 1X...and some of the 1x's were getting tights...I'd like to see those 14's on my bod again soon!

Just my saturday morning ramblings...
This is such a great group...I'm glad to be a part!
Becky, I love your reasons--especially the not so noble ones!!! Love the avi too!!

(((horrors))) . Anyway, I think the "ladder" effect is the way to go. slowly add only healthy carbs in increments of 30 g until you notice a fluctuation in your weight. . .I was thinking veggies first. fruits. nuts . then grains. . I am also thinking one meal at a time. . Treats and stupid carbs should be just that. . Treats for when we want to be stupid. . Not every day. . Not every meal. .we will still have to ge the majority of our food from our friend, protein. . .
That's exactely what I was thinking Im2! Was gonna type it but I'm tired!! I think all of us agree we can't go back to eating what we want-it will have to be healthy. And I do believe low-carb and at the very least low GI and low G-load is the best way to go!!
And you are so so so right about being at goal not being the golden ticket to eat what we want.

Does anyone else get really cold when losing weight? I've noticed that I can never get warm when I'm losing... Maybe it's just me though.

Kams link to squishy weight got me thinking about this. The last few days I just felt squishier and knew the scale wouldn't show a new low. lolol. I swear, when I am fat(ter), I never know my body this well!! But I remember last time I lost a lot of weight, I would feel my body all the time and I'd put my hands around my thighs to see if my fingers could touch and at 147 they did. Okay, just putting that out there
No sorry never feel that about the scale!! I usually get up and feel excited that's it's gonna have gone down...but then the stupid thing lets me down!! Now as for piching and wondering if I've actually got thinner--oh yeah all the time!!! Have to say my ribs and spine kinda still gross me out--prob cos I haven't felt them in a good few years!!


And the fingers around the thighs---I've just done it--well obviously I copy everything I read here!!---and just wanna ask could you get your fingers around the very top of your thigh??? I can't. They touch til about mid-thigh then after that they don't. Another thing to obsess about!! But ya know maybe it's my fingers that are too short and not that my thighs are too fat!

OMG I remember that!!!:
And I also remember mentioning it here---I think you listed the good things about losing weight, Al. I had been thinking about the towel for a while but I thought there's no way I could mention it, I'd be too embarrassed cos it prob had never happened to anyone else. It was the first time I felt 100% comfortable on here like everyone was in exactly the same boat and we could say anything without anyone pointing the finger!
