Hang tight, your body will let go of the weight but in the mean time, it's working on cellular regeneration. Don't let your need for instant gratification (by seeing a loss on the scale) dictate your food choices. The human body is much more complex than your need to be lean.

I'm proud of us all. We're all going in the right direction - just zig-zag.

Thanks Heather!

Meg, I know right! The scale will make me crazy. I try to only weigh a couple of times a week but I am so close to onederland. I just want to be there soooo bad!!

Hey Jayce, thanks girl!

Heather, you are right, we are going down, so what if it's a little zig zag. As long as we are making healthy choices the scale will catch up some day.

Thanks Melanie! .... Like they say slow and steady wins the race. Most weeks I lose 1-2 lbs so I can't complain.

Nikki, you've been so inspiration to me. I hit the 10 pound mark today a little over 3 weeks after starting WW PP. I know you're anxious to get to onederland. It will happen sooner than you think!

Thanks ladies! I couldn't do this without all of you. I really appreciate all of your support!

Thanks Laura, congrats on losing 10 LBS!! I'm so happy to be able to inspire others. It keeps me going strong knowing that others are watching and following in my footsteps.

Y'all remember the beer guy I told y'all about that was looking at my butt at work and he ran into a display and knocked it over? We don't know his name but we refer to him as "Hey Baby" at work, (because when he would see me thats what he always says to me). Well today he asked me what kind of "diet" I am on. Then he told me I was getting too skinny. He also said "thin is not in" . Yeah right, I guess he likes big girls, so maybe "Hey Baby" wont try to hit on me anymore now that I'm getting thin.

June the 7th will be my 1 year on WW PP. I sure hope to be in Onederland by then!

Oh my goodness!!!

:r ofl:

That is just to funny! Must be a butt man. Before I got married I had no idea that butts were such a big thing to so many guys. I married a butt man. I know I'm not the only one whose husband has told her when losing weight just don't lose your butt! I'm more worried that when I lose weight I won't have my 42 DD boobs anymore. But, I married a butt man so who cares? Right?

LOL, my hubby is a boob man, but my boobs are one of the first places I lose weight.

Oh Nikki, that is too funny! I wish I could have been a fly on that wall. There's a Wonderbread delivery guy at our local store who for years when he sees me says, "YOU know you're looking good." I'm convinced he has vision problems but whatever!

Have a great weekend!

TGIF!!! Man am I glad to be off work for the next 3 days! I have worked the last 10.

So what do y'all have planned for the weekend? I have to clean house and get ready for our BBQ on Monday.

"Hey Baby" is not good looking.... but is it wrong that even though I'm a married woman it makes me feel good when complemented?

, thats funny!

I'm sure going to enjoy the weekend even though I have so much house work to catch up on. Monday we are going to the pool for a while then coming home and BBQing. My hubby's older son and his fiancé are going swim with us and hanging out for the BBQ so it will be fun. They want me to make a cookie cake so I'll be baking one. I'm also going to make a WW oatmeal cookie bar. So I'll be able to have a little treat without going off plan.

JC is it possible to marry a butt AND boob man? The man goes positively bonkers when everything starts "shrinking".. I told him he's just gonna have to live with it. I love being curvy but not "this" curvy!

Nikki, have a great 3 days off! Compliments are compliments lady, take 'em all!

MEN! They are so funny about the things that drive them crazy about our bodies! LOL! I think that I'm more worried about my boobs shrinking than my hubby is. His ex wife was (still is) 98 pounds at 5'7" and has zero boobs, and he did not care! A bit intimidating seeing as I weigh more than twice as much as her. But at least I have boobs! And of course, I have him .

Men! ....Mine wants me to grow my hair long. I use to keep it long but I kept it in a pony tail most of the time. He is bald so he don't have hair to take care of.

Man the snack monster has hit me today!

Weigh in day

I'm up .8 this morning. I haven't gone off plan... I'm starting to think Onederland is teasing me.

Going to the pool with the family, then we are BBQing. It's going to be a fun day!

Tony is all about boobs and long hair, JC his ex is like your hubbies ex, 5'0, 100 pounds soaking wet no boobs or butt, I was so intimidated by that I blew off our first 3 dates thinking he is never going to like me after being with her, but its all about personality in the end, she is a ****** and always will be,LOL

Nikki- have a good day!!!

Discipline must accompany desire to achieve results!

Okay so after getting on the scale and seeing my number this morning, I was feeling sorry for myself. In my mind I said well might as well eat and drink and enjoy the holiday. Then when going to get breakfast out of the icebox I looked straight at the quote I have hanging up there."Discipline must accompany desire to achieve results." This reminded me that to achieve the results I want I have to be disciplined enough to stay on track all the time, even when the scale is not showing my hard work.
