Hello ladies.

Jayce~ WOO HOO!!!

Danielle~ It sure will. My grandma... I know yes I said my grandma, gave me a swimming suit that she wore last year. It fits, but not sure its right for me in the boob area. I am a lot more endowed than she is and theres a big cutout in the middle of the chest. Probably not going to work for me. Next year I will have an awesome suit to compare too!!!

Kristyn~ Thanks. It is crazy how you see it faster. As for the bathing suit pics, I would have never posted them when I was that size, but now to have lost and to have them for reference, it feels empowering in some way!!!

Paranoid~ Thanks. I hope to be able to inspire and help others by posting my pics.

So I have been enjoying myself a little bit too much. Maintaining 192, but really want to work and get to 188 by the 27th of August. I need to buckle down and get busy!!!!

Hi Melanie,

Just wanted to drop in and wish you a great day!

I understand the bathing suit quandry. We had a pool party this weekend, and my suit has one of those cut-outs in front too. The girls are on the verge of spilling out. I didn't have time to get another suit, so I just rocked it anyway. Next year, like you, I vow to get a new suit!!!

Take good care,

Hugs, Jenna

Hi Melanie ~ I've just spent the last few days reading your journal and thank you, thank you, thank you. Such an inspiration. The honesty. The pictures. Joys. Struggles. Cravings. Life.

I look forward to continuing to watch your successes

Hi Melanie! I'm in a couple of threads with cindym and that led me to your journal when she said she was reading it. It took me all week (I read when I'm not busy at work) and I just finished. You are one amazing gal. I love your stick-to-a-tivity. I keep getting derailed with family outings and drinking at them. Not really doing bad with the food, but I'm sure the alcohol keeps stalling me. Only 17 lbs. in three months. Would really like to see some better results. I'll start setting some small goals. Pretty sure we're getting married in October and I'm shooting to be under 250 by my birthday Oct. 16. That's the first goal. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you have another admirer and to thank you for all the time you take writing and posting pictures for everyone. I've noticed how many times your posts are in the wee hours and that can't be easy with two little ones. You're greatly appreciated and I'll be keeping an "eye" on you. Best wishes.

Hello, I'm here. I am back at it full force today. Not sure what the scale says, going to wait a few days to weigh. I'm too afraid to see the number. The other day it was 195. I will be back later to read journals. Heading out for lunch with a friend and to the farmers market for some yummy veggies!!!!

So day two of being back to induction style eating was a success. I ate too many frankenfood products, but it kept me from eating the muffins that were delivered today from DH's work.

Menu for today:
b: Atkins caramel shake
L: 1/4 cup of pickles, chocolate mouse, scoop of peanut butter
D: 5 pieces of bacon, 1/2 cup mushrooms, 1/2 cup cucumbers with ranch dip
S1: lc ice cream bar
S2: Atkins bar.

64 oz of water. Need to eat more fat and drink more water tomorrow.

Today is good so far. Down -1 lb since yesterday to 193.2
Sitting here drinking my shake. Then have to get ready to take my oldest daughter to kindergarden orientation. She's a little nervous, but I think she will have a blast once she gets there and gets used to it.

Morning, Melanie...

Glad to hear that your scale went down---that is a good start to the day!!

Good luck for your daughter at the orientation. My DS had a blast at his many years ago.

Have a great day!!

Hugs, Jenna

I will work out while DD is in the daycare there having fun!!!! Win win situation. She's having fun and I'm having fun getting fit!!!! Its about time I start getting serious and toning up and getting rid of all of my fat!!!!

Thanks Maggie. I have been getting sentimental moments off and on this week. Going to be strong for her when she goes and then will probably cry.

Well I can't say I wasn't disapointed this morning when I stepped on the scale!!!! I went to Zumba and really sweated and thought for sure I would be down atleast 1 or 2 lbs since I am in ketosis now. Nope I was only .2 oz's!!!!! WTH!!!!! Oh well, going to keep plugging along and hope I see new numbers this weekend.

Melanie I can't bring myself to weigh myself after a day of working out. The scale just doesn't cooperate enough for me and I am selfish"I want it all and I want it NOW!" I actually wait a day or two and my body settles down a bit and gives me the number that I am pleased to see. I certainly am sorry that the scale didn't give in to you today but there is always tomorrow. So glad you made it to Zumba, I me some Zumba too. Oh awful story a gal in class yesterday Zumbaed to hard backwards yesterday and fell into a weight machine and knocked herself out on the equipment. Parmedics were called and they took her away in a neck brace. I felt bad for her because the dear thing isn't very coordinated and didn't know what hit her. I mean she did come to and realized she ran backwards into the machine but I felt really bad for her. I do hope she will be in class on Tuesday and it didn't turn into anything more serious. Have a great weekend with your family and friends.
