169.4 today...
slowly recovering from over indulgences...it definitely feels so much better to be on control and when I do not react to food so quickly.

messed up the date (4/10)

It's definitely harder to be home and stay on track. The tendency to snack and graze all day while I am home with the kids and running around is strong.
Trying to make that better for tomorrow and the rest of the week. Also, getting back on track from Sunday too...

168.8 this morning.
I had major cravings last night but thanks to some lcf I did not give in.

Hoping today is a good day with less cravings and good choices...
I really want a big weight loss for this month. I have a party the 29th and could really use that as a boost and incentive for a nice dress.

Welcome Christinel-
Thank you for your kind words. Every day gives me different challenges but this woe and this forum has helped me more than anything else has in my past.
How much weight do you have to lose? I want to lose 25 more pounds.
Again, thanks for checking in.
Good luck!

169.8-little disappointed. I was at my MIL 's house last night and she made chicken parm. I ate one piece w. some salad. She barely breaded it...I know that was bad BUT I had no bread and no homemade manicotti that looked delicious...AND I had no dessert which included choices of cheesecake, ice cream or cookies. Sometimes it feels like I sacrifice so much yet moving my pounds seems like it takes forever... I know I need patience but it can be difficult. I am trying my best today.

Ughh-169.4 today. I stayed on plan but ate extra calories (more lc snacks than usual) I am disappointed because I know I ate out of stress and nervous energy rather than out of hunger. Terrible thing to do...such a difficult habit to break.

All I know is there are so many functions coming around the corner along with summer....I have to get strict!!!

Thanks Psmiley.

Today I weighed in at 167.2.
I feel good although I feel anxious about graduate school and upcoming events. I hope staying focused on my woe continues because it makes me feel in control and so good in my clothes....

167.4-not over thinking it. I stuck to plan yesterday, so I feel no guilt.
So much to do but I find checking in w. LCF soooo helpful.

166.4. I am bouncing around 2 pounds and it is frustrating to say the least.
BUT I WILL stay focused!

165.4 this morning.???
Again, I feel like weight is coming off BUT I am not assuming it's off for good. My 2-3 pounds have been lingering w. me for a while now. I am not negative but know I feel like I have to be careful-
I have noticed that I am getting full faster. I feel like I am eating less and feeling "satisfied" w. less. I am really trying to tune into the how I feel physically and trying to let that be my guide into what I eat.

Thanks Psmiley for that perspective.

Hoping this continues. I am watching my calories but I am trying to be very conscientious about it because I know if I restrict tooo much, it can cause binging. I am, however, really liking how I am feeling and how my clothes feel.
I want to see a big change for the summer. I want to continue to progress.

Today I weighed in at 164.4.
I am really happy that my persistence and hard work is paying off....I know that can quickly change if I become "lazy" and not as vigilant.
I want to keep my "eye on the prize" while being realistic.

THanks Psmiley! You have been so supportive thru my little journal here...it really helps! As far as pics, 1-I'm not sure how to do it and 2-I am not sure f I am ready for that step yet, pics were never my thing (I cringe too much).
BUT I will get there...Thanks again for being a great cheerleader!

weighed in at 165.5 today.
I was at a party today for my daughter and I made a few minor slip-ups.
I hope I don't pay for it too badly tomorrow.
Another long week ahead....have to get back at it no matter what. Maybe tomorrow I will just do meat and eggs.

I weighed in at 165 this morning. I am surprised but when I look at it -even though I ate a few "bad" things. It was a few AND when I got home from the party I drank LOTS of water and did not eat anything else. I am hoping that the scale does not surprise me tomorrow. I admit that I am scale obsessed and have to weigh in every morning. Although, I must say that if I do not like what it reads I still try and have a good day where as before I would let it ruin my day. Emotions play a big part in my weight loss.

Well today I weighed in at 162.8???
I think it because I lost my appetite-I feel like I have a sinus cold.

Although I hope this weight stays off, I have a feeling it will come back on as soon as I start to feel better and regain my appetite.

I must say-it was great to see that number even if it was only temporary...

I feel great other than being sick. It's funny I have been getting compliments lately but I think they think I am doing something unhealthy? I think during times like these you see which people are genuine and who are truly happy for your successes.
