Oooooh do be careful getting home Shari. Like your plans for your mini goal and I know our bodies love a particular number on the scale. Shaking things up will definitley help with that so get to "shakin!"

Have a nice weekend, even with the snow.

Morning Cle! Good morning ladies! I can't believe it's Monday already. I had a busy weekend so I guess that makes it go faster. Fortunately, schools closed early on Friday so I was able to leave early before evening commute. Schools are delayed this morning because of freezing rain...but then it's going to be in the mid to high 60's by Wednesday then snow again and/or wintry mix on Friday.
Crazy weather!

TOM is here so he left Maggie and came directly to me...Maggie you must have given him the short cut! My appetite has been horrendous. I was eating a lot more but was doing good, kept it low carb but Saturday night I went out to celebrate my boys doing very well in school this year, my youngest made principal's list and my oldest continuing to make honor roll. I don't need to go into details but I did not fight the temptation...definitely did not eat low carb.
I did well yesterday so moving forward. No scale until some of the bloat has left from TOM...ugh.

Deb, I am really proud of my boys! I will not take all the credit because in my world (single parent), it truly takes a village and his family and mine are very supportive. My oldest has always made honor roll each quarter and a few times made the principal's list. For my youngest, this is the first year he is graded using the grade scale and he was so disappointed last quarter when he only made honor roll and not principal's list. When I met his teacher for parent-teacher night, I was like who's child is this?! They have a drive that amazes me... I just pray it continues through puberty...so not looking forward to that stage. My oldest is already asking me more adult questions..ugh. We (dad and I) have explained the basic sex/puberty stuff to them. My goodness, that was so hard to do but more than necessary in these days with so much exposure at such a young age.

Your village should be so proud!.. I agree Shari, they need to have that drive inside, or no matter how much we want things for them, they have to want it more.

You have laid all the groundwork, you and your family, that they have what they need to be amazing members of society!.. TO EXCEL!! I know it will be challenging in the years to come, but I truely believe it starts early and at home.. BE PROUD!!!

I'm going to try to leave early but with court and scheduled to see another client afterward, I don't know.

Scale is stalled or maybe it's coming down from the Flan...168.4. I checked and it's exactly what it was a week ago. My body loves to stall in this area so I may need to do something to shake it up..oh yeah, maybe exercise? My next mini goal is to get to 165.

Oh Gracie... I forgot to comment on your previous post where you said 'congrats to the Ravens' then had When I read that I said to myself I know it's only because of close friendship on here that you were able to even type that!! I haven't made any special plans yet...I'm already on pins and needles! I think it's even more a nail bitter because it's brother against brother. How exciting!!
LOL, I know! We all know how big the rivalry is between Pittsburgh and Baltimore. We are arch enemies Me rooting for the Ravens to win the superbowl would be grounds to have me beheaded It's pretty neat having 2 brothers as coaches - first time in history. I remember last year when the Patriots were in the superbowl against Eli Manning and the Giants. You would've thought the Steelers were in it because everyone at my house was rooting for the Giants because of our dislike of Tom Brady and the Patriots. It was the best thing ever when they lost

Yep, kicked Tom's butt to the curb early or actually he decided to leave on his own and it's such a relief! However, I am sorry he is taking up the couch in your life Shari.

Great kids, be a proud mama anytime.

Deb~ thanks, I really appreciate it

Maggie~ TOM is actually not too bad except for the bloating. Hopefully he will leave early too Whose house should I send him to next?

Gracie~haha! I was rooting against Bratty too. I totally understand..I love the rivalry it's what keeps that fire and spirit on point! I think it is cool too that it's two brothers..how exciting!

I've been snacking after dinner...so no scale. Last night I had chopped walnuts warmed in butter and splenda w/cinnamon. Yum!! I do need to weigh soon though because I know I'm up but don't know how much. With eating more and TOM I will wait until my stix turn again. I miss my pink/purple colors!!

Mmmm...the walnuts sound yummy! Good idea.

I'm trying to figure out why I've been spotting for almost a week -- WTH? TOM visited a few weeks ago, so I'm confused. It's probably the stupid hormones in the BC pill. Being a woman sucks sometimes!

Hope you have a good day, Shari~

Jayce~ welcome to getting older LOL. The hormonal thing is a trip!! I saw my dermatologist yesterday and she said my complaint is the same for most women that see her...acne is worse now in women from mid 30's on than when we were teenagers. I was really lucky when I was younger and usually only broke out during PMS but now it's like I'm getting payback. Not really bad but I can tell a difference and it's all hormones shifting..ugh. Yeah, the pills are a definite no for me because of the hormones.

I actually did brave the scale yesterday..I'm back into the 170's. G and I are going on a cruise late April so I need to get it together. I always gain when cruising because of the unlimited good food but the only time I only gained a couple of pounds cruising was when I exercised 4 days using the gym. It was also when I did the C25K program so running and burning cals worked against gaining a lot. My group of Moms sent texts last night saying track season is starting soon so we should also run/walk together as our kids are practicing. I mentioned trying to start the C25K program and they are game! So yeah, I set it up that I will have to commit and start moving either on my own or by force. Whatever works, right? No scale today...second day of M/E fast so getting rid of water weight then I'll weigh again.

Wow Shari you are brave!! I know making the commitment will help you though. YOU CAN DO IT!! Just think Cruise, like I am thinking Hawaii!! We can do it!

I am also on day 2 of Meat/Egg and already feel less stuffed up in the head. I swear Sugar/Wheat really does a number on me. Inflammation is bad with that.

Hope you do well today,and that water weight is soon gone!

Morning Shari!!

Congrats to your boys!!! That is great that everyone behind them and pushing them so. I love that. KUTGW mom!!

Don't send TOM over here. According to my calender I have 17 days left. Don't go messing me up I also can't do the BC. I did for 8 years then I went cold turkey because I was feeling weird. I can't fool with all the hormones they put in that stuff.

I love that group of moms. I need to find something like that here. My BFF stays in the Atlanta area but on the outskirts while I am more in town so it's hard for us to get our kids together during the week with ATL traffic I am going to see if some of the moms at DD's school want to do something similar. Thanks for the idea Shari.

Good morning ladies! Doing good with eating, scale at 173.2 today. I can't believe how quickly the weight comes back on when you eat off plan or more calories (but still keep it low carb). It is what it is..nothing to do but move forward. The weight loss support group I am going to at work ends today and they will start a WW group in mid Feb for a reduced price...giving it some thought but I don't want to keep switching back and forth between plans.

Gotta run so I'll try to visit other journals later. Happy Friday eve!!

Morning LCF fam! My support group ended yesterday and it was very good. We shared where we were when the group started (not just physically), where we are now and what we've learned. The group support was really encouraging so if I don't do WW now I may join when it opens again in 3 mths with the goal of maintaining weight I've lost and begin to add other food. I mentioned in Jayce's journal that I've been looking into 5Ks and read that a good goal would be to join one 6 to a year out to properly prepare without pressure and injuring yourself. I'm considering asking my group of moms to join for extra motivation. They are game for most things..I love that group. We celebrate birthdays and go out that month to do something so the next bday is in March and we're going to a pole dance class Someone joked to bring singles...

Morning Shari! Let us know about your 5k plans. Couple of years ago, the girls and I ran one on the same day but in different states. It was pretty cool then we did the half marathon. I've been walking/jogging so I can get back to that place!

Sounds awesome Shari!! I wish we had that kind of support here.. I am such a loner, that I do most things on my own.. Maybe I should consider branching out...

You have a wonderful Friday and Weekend!!

Oh I forgot to add, ENJOY YOUR TEAM IN THE SUPERBOWL!!!!
