I looked and 5/27 was the last day I was below 162. A few weeks later I noticed the weight gain and went back to basics.
It is good to notice a weight gain only a few pounds in and take care of it. That is a skill I am going to need for the rest of my life!

160.5. I am rocking and rolling.

I have my doctor's appointment today. I was going because I thought my thyroid might be sluggish. Maybe now it is going the other way. Can it switch back and forth that quick?

Your thyroid would not flip-flop that quickly. You probably were just stalled for a bit, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to get your thyroid checked anyway.

Nice job!!

I'm feeling your pain a little bit right now. I'm adopting your "back to basics" plan for this coming week, as I have let the carb creep get a little out of hand. If you can do it, so can I!

Good, Vilya! It feels good to be back in control.

Though confession - I ate a chocolate chip cookie bar yesterday and that was not in control. Very rarely do I let temptation get the better of me.
I then got AF 10 days early, so I am going to blame it on that!

161.8 this morning!

I haven't weighed all week...because I know I am off track again.
I did measure today though.

Chest 38.5
Waist 31.5 - which makes sense b/c I've been drinking soda and probably have bloat
hips 40 - might have pulled the tape tighter last time...who knows.
thighs - about 22.5 each
arms about 12 each

I've seen a few pictures lately in which I think look skinny!

I didn't weigh myself much this week. I knew I wasn't eating well and I was pre-occupied with my burns.

Thanks, Vilya!

I didn't weigh today because I want to feel the joy of yesterday's number a little while longer! I don't think I will stay in the 150's...I only got there for about 2 hours a few months ago!

My burns are healing nicely. I think once my belly burn is healed I want to start exercising more. DH was told to lose 5lbs and exercise, so I think a nice family walk would be good for us. Maybe not great exercise since it will involve a 3 year old- but if we walk and then do some push ups I think it will be good. (I have to wait until the burns heal because the heat bothers them.)

160.9. I knew I shouldn't have weighed myself. I ate at Bertucci's yesterday so I expected to be up some, I always am when I eat out. Overall though, 160.9 pleases me...just not as much as 159.2 did!

For me...when I'm teetering in and out of induction...I feel sluggish. My gotchas are soy (allergic), booze of any kind, and any kind of highly processed deli meat.

Had my lowest weigh in at my weightloss group tonight! Only lower by 1/4 than before, but still an all time new low.

Company picnic tomorrow.

I did pretty well at the picnic yesterday. I didn't touch the desserts. I did drink a coke - which was delicious.
I have not weighed myself much this week.

159.4.
It is hard not weighing everyday and I had no idea what to expect when I stepped on the scale this morning...but I was very happy!

I haven't been weighing every day either, since I got my new puppy. I'm too worried about getting her outside in the morning and totally forget about weighing.

Nice going!

What a difference a bra makes...
Photos go no bra- old bra- new bra



I went from a 40DD to a 38C. When I got fitted today the girl said I could do a 36 or a 38...I'd like to be a 36 but a 38 is more comfortable!

160.8 this morning. I've barely weighed myself this week.
This weekend I drank a ton of Coke/Pepsi...not diet, just regular!
I had such cravings for it...now I am done with it!

We go on vacation next Saturday. Going to Maine. Can not wait!

Isn't it amazing what the right bra can do?? You look awesome, and you are so pretty!

My eating is out of control. I knocked myself out of ketosis and am starving!

And this morning I decided to get on the scale and face the music.


158.5

My lowest weight ever...probably since I was like 15 yeasrs old!

The bad news is that it is not motivating me to get my eating back under control.

On vacation in Maine. My eating is not in control as I would like it to be. It is not horrible, but I've had some breading on my food...and too many atkins bars.
It is hard to tell my weight on this scale, but it looks like I am not putting on any major weight.

Back from vacation...but not stepping on the scale until tomorrow morning. I get a little constipated when travelling so I want to give it a day to work itself out

I made myself a deal on vacation like I did last year. If they had the pie I loved on Wednesday I would get a piece...and they did. So, I got a piece. My 2 kids and my mom shared it with me, so it was not as bad as it could have been.

________
DS got the Wii out so I went ahead and weighed myself. (I use Wii Fit as my scale.)
161.8- not bad at all considering I ate out every meal for an entire week...and a lot of it was deep fried.
