As long as we continue to hold ourselves accountable and keep trying we will get through it. its hard tho.

I keep gaining and losing the same water weight. i'm just going to focus the rest of december on staying active and calorie counting. my goal each friday will be to stay under 200 lbs. then january im going to get back to trying to lose business! right now i just want to stay under 200 on weigh in day.

I hear you -- it seems like it's so easy to put weight back on as compared to losing it. Frustrating to the max!

I am taking your advice regarding the exercise...even though it seems like it doesn't help me lose as quickly as I'd like, it definitely helps my overall shape & frame of mind. I'm going to stick with it!

We've got this, chica! Onward & downward!

Thanks hon. Yea its so hard over the holidays. im just giving myself a break and focus on maintaining and not worry about losing. all i've been doing is getting down on myself about it. I still plan to workout but even that has been hard to stay motivated. one week i'll go 4 times and then the next week i'll go zero. NOT GOOD.

I wish the same for your family too and haha YES WE DO have some smack talking to do!!

weight 200.3, thats good for tuesday since by friday i just want under 200s again. 197 would be good to see again.

so gals i am SO stressed out. I got my bridesmaid dress back and its TOO SHORT! the dress i tried on at the store was a size 16W and it was too big, had to be clipped in the back but it hit me perfectly at the knee, so i ordered a size 14 and didn't think about the length. I don't know what im going to do. the bridal shop has a strict no returns/exchanges policy, the wedding isn't until May 2014 so i have some time. The shop still has the 16W so im sure i could trade for that one and then have it taken it, but then it better fit me perfectly. they can take dresses in up to 3 sizes down BUT i paid $200 for this dress and don't want to settle for a sample size. Then if they do let me order a new dress i don't know what i'll do. Order one size larger and then add an inch in length. Either way i'll need them to take it in on top. im so upset/stressed over this.

here i am in the 16W and then here i am in the 14. I'll admit the 14 is tight on my hips and might look better if i lost a few lbs.

I think it looks awesome on you! If it's a little tight in the hip area and lose a little bit more, it will probably not be as short. That's weird that the 14 would be shorter than the 16. I've tried on 16's and 14's before and the length has never differed I would call the company and complain. Especially if you tried on the 16 and they knew you were ordering the 14. Someone should've said the length was different. But, I personally think you look great in it but if you're not comfortable I understand that too.

The bride insists on it being longer, she was not happy with the length at all.

OMG!! The store is going to reorder for me!!! I'm going with the 16 this time. i don't need the added stress. I can have it taken in down the road. they are ordering it with the extra length as well. its a standard 3 inches so i might have to have it hemmed but that's ok with me!!!

Thank goodness they were able to help you! In a business like that, they know how the dress fits is one of the biggest issues...glad they provided you with good customer service.

So happy it got resolved. It was good you had a picture of the original length. The difference was too great to be correct.

Enjoy the rest of the season. You are doing great!

I coulda sworn I posted here yesterday I must be losing my mind in all the holiday madness

I'm so relieved that the dress thing was resolved! Those store that truly value it's customers will do whatever it takes, and I'm happy there was no hassle for you. Great dress!!!

199.... what a beautiful number to me. Can't wait to get there! Great job with those numbers, Lexi

Still 199 today, didn't make the best choices eating yesterday but plan to make up for that today. I did this hip hop dance video this am, very low impact but i still burned 300 cals so better than just staying in bed.

Makes me think about my Hip Hop Abs video...it's fun! He makes me laugh, but I do get a good sweat! I think I have Core Rhythms somewhere too...never even tried it yet!

WTG on your workout, girly!
