Good job, Luca!! I also like your plan of attack. I am doing LC in a five hour window to mix things up. We shall see what happens.

I look forward to reading your updates!

7.4

I weighed in at 163.4 today. 40 pounds lighter than this time last year!
I have a BBQ party I am going to today and I made a dessert that I had a few licks of....I'm human.

BUT as far as the rest of the day is concerned, I want to stick to plan.
I have to remind myself how good it feels to wear the cuter clothes I am wearing this year and how NO kind of food is worth going back to the way I felt and looked last year. I KNOW next year will be even better! I cannot slack and go off plan just because it's a holiday. Going to stay focused!

7.7

I weighed in at 163.4 this morning.
I feel very guilty and embarrassed that I ate some bad stuff last night. I am ashamed that my will power quickly dwindled from the morning to the end of the day last night.
So far, today has been ok. Just disappointed in myself and the way things have been going lately. I have a b-day party today....so we'll see....

7.14-7.15

Can't explain what is going on.
7.14 I was 164.3
Today 7.15 I weighed in at 165.2.

I have a wedding today and I don;t want to have a bad attitude about all this (I won't).
I know I seem really down about not seeing any true progress lately BUT I am just tired of ....tired of working hard and not seeing results....
Ugh-just going to put on my dress today and hae a good time anyway!

Hope the rest of you are doing well!

Hi Luca,

I can identify with your confusion regarding the scale. I recently had a carb fest, didn't gain a pound, went back to healthy eating, and gained. I don't get it either.

I like your attitude about the wedding today; you WILL have a good time, I just know it! Have fun!

Hugs to you,
Jenna

I weighed in at 164.3 today.
I had a great time at the wedding last night. I received tons of compliments and I think for the first time I dressed a little sexy...and it felt really nice.

Today-back to the routine. I feel a bit tired and out of of it. Sunday is usually my day to get things organized for the week...so I have to get on that. The good thing is I have been walking 3 miles every morning, including today.

That feels great too....hoping for a good week.

Weighed in at 163.8.

I have been off the past few days. We had an an unexpected visitor stay with us for a few days. He left yesterday so today I feel like I need the day to just clean and get organized. We are going out to dinner tonight with some old friends so I am hoping to eat a good salad there. I also skipped walking this morning. I am trying to stick w. LC eating but I think I need to stay off the scales for a week. I do not want to get obsessive.

Weighed in at 164.4 this morning.
I think I am going to skip the scale for a few days as hard as that can be for me.,,,

I just came back from a walk and I am getting ready to make breakfast for myself and the kiddos. I need to go food shopping and deliver some other food to a local shelter. I am trying my best to stay motivated even w. my lack of progress.....it's great to be on LCF.

Hi Luca,

Just stopping by to see how you are doing. Like you, I am a daily weigher. But lately, I admit I've been thinking about doing it once a week, if I have the discipline. You gotta do what works for you, right!

Wishing you a relaxing and peaceful day!

Hugs, Jenna

Today I weighed in at 163.4.
I went to church this morning and then went food shopping. I am thinking of going for a walk tonight. It is so beautiful out today.

It was nice going to church today. The pastor talked about being "dry" spiritually. He also talked about how important it is to counsel yourself through challenging times. I think not seeing any progress with the scale has altered my spirit. I think I have lost focus on the whole journey. ( I also believe I need to revive this woe with some new foods and recipes. )
The fact is, I am still learning everyday about my body and ways I can nourish it the best. For years, I have neglected my body and ate more for emotional reasons rather than for nourishment. This poor lifestyle habit has been sooooo difficult to break-what a challenge! Also, the "high" I get from being thinner or just losing a pound or two on the scale, has its good and bad aspects. It's super motivating when I lose but it's like my whole self-worth is destroyed when I gain or stay the same??? That takes me back to my teen and college years. That is an awful place to be and I feel myself there ....but I am stepping away from that. I am still a good person, still worth praise, and I am still on the right track, despite any weight loss. Self-esteem and feeling good is an important part of progression.
Hi Jenna....I stepped on the scale today and I REALLY want to wait a few days before going on again. It's so hard not to but I am going to try.
Thanks for checking in &the well wishes-you are too sweet..Hope all is well with you....

I did not stick to my guns and weighed in ..(164.4)

BUT I promise I won't weigh in now until Friday. I was secretly hoping for some big whoosh-..

BUT like I wrote yesterday I need to get my priorities in check. This is for sure a journey and not a destination. Soooo....I am just going to try and stay true to plan, exercise and not obsess.

I think I planned too many things today and I may have to cancel. When I tend to get overwhelmed w. "things" to do, I then just need time to get it together at home and go nowhere. Hoping for a good day...

You are so inspiring! I love your positive attitude and determination.

I used to weigh in weekly, but since doing JUDDD I do every other day (after DD). Weighing weekly allowed some room for me to breathe but still be on top of my progress.

I think you are doing a wonderful job, there are so many people around here that give up and give in bc they are unsatisfied with the results they see. Your mindset is one I admire and strive for and proves that you are not in this for a quick fix but for long term success and eating right. That is key in my eyes.

KUTGW Luca!

Just wanted to say hi and wish you a big WHOOSH tomorrow on your weigh-in day!

Take care,

Well, I've been busy but trying to watch and stick to plan. I will be going away this weekend to maybe a really bad place to go but Hershey Park! Chocolate, chocolate everywhere! I'm hoping that there will be some sugar free options for one treat. I also want to TRY and remember having fun does not revolve around food but the people you are with and activities you choose to do-whether it be talking, walking, swimming, laughing, etc....Hopefully, I will keep that in my mind. Today has been a good day so far. I am hoping for a good number on the scale tomorrow. I know if I see a loss it will motivate me to stay on track....it's not everything but it sure does help!

Thanks Jenna-I hope to see a loss too!
How are you doing?

Hi again Luca,

I am doing well. My weight has stalled, but I keep working at it day by day. I'm convinced that I will see lower numbers if I keep at it.

Hershey Park??? That would be hard for me to say the least. I know you can find something OK to eat, but I like what you said about food not being the center of your trip. Enjoy yourself.

We are camping this weekend and my father-in-law is bringing the food, so there will be lots of junk. I am going to pack my own little LC cooler I think.

Have fun on your trip! I'll look forward to hearing about it.

Hugs, Jenna

I weighed in at 163.4 today.
I am fine with that. I feel good and my clothes do not feel tight.
I am super busy today. We will be going away for 2 days and I started going thru attic "stuff"-ugh.
I am giving my pregnant friend some clothes I had...it feels good to pack some of them up. I despise clutter-so it feels freeing to clear out. I will have to do the rest in August when I get rid of other stuff for a garage sale I am planning. Getting rid of so many clothes is a good feeling but definitely feels like a commitment that I have to keep-no more yo-yo dieting.
Hoping for a good weekend---

Hi Luca,

Just checking in. We went camping this weekend, and I had a Hershey's bar for smores and thought of your trip to Hershey Park. I look forward to hearing about it!

I had a really, really great time at HP w. my family! We had a wonderful time.
I made really great choices and only slipped once at the park and had kettle corn up last night on the car ride home. I had some chips and a piece of chocolate. I don't feel bad about it and I am not going to over think it...I will just get back to eating on track.
One thing I noticed was I wore a bathing suit had fun with my kids in the water park. That is something I did not do last year. I have a long way to go and am nowhere near how I really want to look in a bathing suit BUT its progress and I am happy with that for now....

I did however make the REALLY bad choice of not putting on sunscreen and now I have REALLY REALLY bad sunburn on my back and shoulders. So today I will be takin' it easy. I have a ton to do but just can't (thank goodness it is summer)

Hi Luca,

So glad you had a great time at HP. Sounds like you did very well with the eating.

I can totally identify with the bathing suit thing. I am not there yet either.

I also burn when I choose not to put on sunscreen. I hope you heal quickly and feel better soon.

Have a great day!

Hugs, Jenna

Ughh..my sunburn is still pretty bad, especially on my back and shoulders. I am still in my pjs today and so are the kiddies. I have lots of grad work to do and some laundry. Going to make a simple dinner of hot dogs tonight.
Tomorrow, no matter what, I am going walking again w. my friend and getting out of these pjs-sunburn or not.
Definitely a lesson learned about sunscreen. I have not weighed myself because I do not want to be discouraged after such a lovely weekend w. my family. I do want to lose at least 5 pounds in August. I hope to get in the 150's. I wanted to do that in July but it has come and gone. I don't want to dwell and I want to be happy with the maintaining I have done-trying to be positive. I am hoping that losing that 5 pounds will give me a reason to buya few cute outfits for the fall come September....hoping for a good day.
