Today is a new day though! Wishing you well today, and kuddos on the morning exercise.
Thanks, Lyn...I hate that seeing that low # was short-lived, but at least I know it's attainable very soon! It's hard on weekends not to "indulge" -- I really need to form some sort of plan to address that issue.

Thanks for the positive vibes -- I stayed on plan yesterday.

Your trip sounds like so much fun!!!! Say hi to Mickey for me! And Cle, of course!
Thanks, Dani...bloat pounds are the worst! It's discouraging to see such a jump, but I know my body is sensitive to sodium, etc.

I am definitely looking forward to my trip! I'm ready for sunshine & lots of fun -- time to be a big kid!!! I will def say "Hi" to Cle -- will take pics!

Sounds like you have a fun vacation planned! Hope the week goes by quickly and that you thoroughly enjoy your fun time away!
Lisa, I know! Evil, evil bloat monster needs to go back where he came from! Hehe...

I'm counting down the days till my departure...excited!

Well, I got super pissed this morning when I weighed b/c I was UP a pound, despite the fact that I had a ton of calories left over & I exercised AND I drank at least half my weight in water. ARGHHHHHH!

I think TOM is approaching b/c I was hurting last night, so maybe that's part of the issue, combined with last weekend's shenanigans. I will just keep pressing on & hopefully I'll be rewarded for my efforts.

Going out to eat with a friend tonight -- it's an authentic Italian place, which makes it hard to stay on plan, but I found their menu online & they have a "lighter options" section. I'm thinking of going w/ one of those, like a shrimp option.

Exercised this morning -- did 30 mins on my good ole friend, the Arc trainer. Hurting again! LOL. I am sore in my legs & abs, but I guess that's a good sign.

Happy Tuesday, all!

Boy do I hear ya on the "2-second low".... I had one too and it disappeared But, you're right, it goes to show that it IS attainable and we need to just keep moving in that general direction. If there's one thing I've learned from my experiences with cycling, the body is gonna just do what it wants to do when it wants to do it..... I'm just along for the ride

So jealous of your vacation, it sounds amazing! Can't wait for the pics!

Ugh, AF is such a PITA! Hoping for a swift and quick exit for you!

Hi ladies! Nice to see your smiling faces in here...sorry for the delay in updates. I had a great trip to FL & will post more in depth later.

Left work today...dr. thinks I have a stomach virus. I have little to no appetite, stomach cramps, & was having chills/low grade fever earlier. Blech! Trying to make myself drink water. I did make it to gym this morning before I went to work & started feeling sh*tty.

Taking tomorrow off...got a dr's note, so just gonna rest a lot.

Hi, lovelies! I will come back later & respond more in depth to each of you...thanks so much for stopping by.

Out of curiosity, I ran a report on my food tracking site and it showed a definite downward trend for last year -- I'm down 22 lbs since this date last year, which makes me happy. I know it could be more, but I'm not going to dwell on "what ifs" & "should haves" right now. I'm going to be proud of myself for my accomplishments thus far & KEEP ON TRUCKING!

Popping in real quick -- the bf got good news regarding our move. Housing approved us to live off-base, so we can start looking for our own place in NJ.

Nice pic of you and Cle. Glad you ladies were able to link up and have some fun.

I agree with DesertGurl, looks are deceiving; you carry your weight very well.

I'm responding late, but thanks for the positive words -- I went to the dr. yesterday, and they've prescribed me a different allergy med to try called Xyzal. I'm supposed to take it at night b/c it has antihistamine properties & can make you drowsy. Crossing my fingers that it helps!

Yes, I'm so happy we got the waiver approved to live off-base. We've been browsing online & found a few prospects. We're checking out places next month in person! I am trying to look at it as an "adventure" -- that's a good idea.

Thanks, Dani. I have heard throughout my life (when I've shared my actual weight w/ people) that they thought I weighed less. I guess that's one thing for which to be thankful! I think it's all hiding in my thighs, hips, and butt. Smh...lol.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _____________

Well, feeling better today. It probably has something to do with the weather today -- in the 60's & bright & sunny! YESSSS! The nice temps should last through Saturday, so I'm going to appreciate it while it's here. TOM is here, but I'm coping with it. Have had some strong-ass cravings, but at least my weight was 215 even this morning.

Hit the gym this morning after a week off. Saw my old friend the Arc Trainer...it hurts me, but I love it so. It was funny last time I used it b/c this guy was walking past me to get to the ellipticals, & he totally checked out my butt. I started laughing b/c I'm thinking, "Well, at least this machine must be doing something right."

Gotta figure out what I'm cooking for dinner. I took some hamburger out to thaw this morning. Need to Google some recipes! I want to try something new.

What's up with y'all today???

Hey, Dani! I've been logging in & reading, but just hadn't posted much lately. Trying to get back in the habit b/c it does help keep me "connected" to a supportive, healthy community.

I've been looking on several sites & spotted some promising areas, so trying to narrow down which towns/cities would work for us. I am getting kinda antsy to get the ball rolling just to see what's around the corner for us!

How's your Friday been?

Yesterday wasn't bad...I took my new allergy pill & slept like a baby last night. I am hoping it helps me out long-term.

Thanks for the compliment, Monica...y'all are sweet.


Well, I ordered some supplements yesterday -- got some Vitamin D, Garden of Life probiotics, Sam-e, & Vitamin B/folic acid complex. I'm hoping these will help with mood regulation, digestion, and energy. We shall see! I will likely set an alarm on my phone to remind me b/c I'm bad about remembering doses! I know I need to take them daily in order to reap benefits.

So glad it's Friday! I could seriously fall asleep at my desk right now...don't know if it's related to the 2 chalupas I had for lunch or the Reese's minis I had afterwards. Hormones are a BEEEEEEP!
