WOE: one day at a time!!
Start Date: July 14, 2003 - every day!!
My sunburn wasn't that bad, just a light pink . It's normal transition to "summer". It'll be back in the 100's next week! Holding on to the 90's happily for now .
The tank was just black. I didn't see the final part where they took everything . I do love Zumba, but my head and neck hurt by the end . Sure hope that's just an adjustment and not a permanent residual from the whiplash!

Back up a bit, 154.1. It's fine, wish it were lower, but can't complain!
Fun weekend ahead here. visiting my brother and his family friday night, then Saturday going to a farewell pool party for dd's bestie , then likely a movie. Gonna have some of my favorite wine on Sunday afternoon while we go paint canvases (me and 3 couples, my AZ besties) then out to dinner at a well reviewed local steakhouse. Should be a wonderful celebration on Sunday!! Monday, which is my 45th birthday, is family day and my good friend is here with us for the weekend too, so we will eat out all day (lots of freebies!) and probably do some shopping or swimming somewhere. Tuesday we're going to the water park (bought season passes for the girls and I) so we're planning to start off summer! I suspect I will also be enjoying a gycd that day .

I'm really looking forward to the weekend!! I'm so glad I did this last round and glad I came back after the PI. I'm so much more comfortable in my clothes and skin!

I sure plan to! Thanks!

I'm doing well, odd day of eating. Ran errands all morning-car cleaned, emissions tested, shoping done, gas tank filled...had bacon and eggs at 11:00! Then some ham and cheese roll ups later for lunch, and only hungry for a few bites of dinner-chicken Alfredo. I had some cocoa dusted almonds, and 2 squares of sf chocolate, and a nectarine thrown in there too! Then at volleyball I was hungry so I had my quest bar. And then, we all went out for gelato. I had a small, but full sugar version, at 9:00!! and? I'm back down to 153.4 today-where I seem to have settled this round. I'll take it! I've been trying to eat intuitively, but it's certainly not an exact science! And my temp is up to 97.6!! Bonus!

Encouraged going in to the weekend !! Hope you're all doing well!!

Woohoo! Down to 152.3 this morning! And that's after tortilla chips and guacamole, a bean and cheese enchilada and some white wine last night at my brother's house!? I'll take it! Maybe it's a bit of post wine dehydration? I only had half a glass...but it's the first wine I've had in ages! I'm extra encouraged to be actually 0.1 below LDW as I know it won't last this weekend! Going to try and keep things light today as it's really Sunday and Monday that I will be indulging .

Have a great weekend!

You will probably see the effects of this a few days from now on the scale. I've noticed there's a delayed reaction... which kind of tricks us to think its ok...

Debby-probably will. That cumulative effect is confusing!

Cheryl-thanks!

I overate yesterday, and still feel full today!! It wasn't so much bad choices, but too much volume. Scale up today, as expected, barely in my window. No real chance at a CD today...painting canvases at 4:00 with wine and cheese, and then delicious steak house dinner-with dessert too. Toyed with fasting until 4:00...but then realized adding wine to fasting may make for a disastrous night! planning to keep it light though, and enjoy some cheese before my wine . I will not CD tomorrow either, as it's my real birthday complete with all my once a year treats! Hopefully, if I correct Tuesday there will be minimal lasting damages .

On the NSV front, I did some quick shopping at H&M last night and had to buy size smalls!! The mediums were too big?! now THAT'S a present!! Cute outfits, great deals and small sizes!! Woohoo!!

That's wonderful! What a great weekend you're having. Totally do not fast when drinking. The cheese won't do much to keep you from getting a rapid buzz. If they have bread, better have a little bit of that too. You don't want to get crocked when you're going to have another nice meal out later on. It will make you want to take a nap and there won't be time for napping.

Happy Birthday, size small girl.

Thanks ladies! It's been a wonderful birthday! I've been celebrating for 2 days and have lunch with my girlfriends scheduled on Thursday, and I'm taking my dd's to the water park with our friends (who's daughter is turning 14 tomorrow). I'm looking forward to a fun week!

And, the scale wasn't that bad today! I'm stuffed now, and think I'm doing a gycd tomorrow. So worth it! Enjoyed every minute!!

Here are a few cut pictures...you know I love my pics!
This is the group at dinner.

Thanks!

I'm up to 156 this morning! As expected, and I know it'll come back down. Heading to the water park with our friends today. Should hit 108 today so there are few other things we can do for fun! Looking forward to it. Planning a gycd but it could just turn into a few meals. Playing it by ear and not worried.

Love the pics. You look so GREAT. Love the new Avi, too. You have a nice group of friends too. So glad you had such a fun week. The GYCD will set you back on track. You're a very pretty lady, Julie. Thanks for all the pics.

Thanks ladies! . It's been a fun celebration!!

I'm back down to my window today. Yay! Love GY! I'm feeling good and pretty happy with my stabilization. I'm on day 4 of P4 and not feeling anxious or concerned at all, which is new. I do like the Rx! It's been a very different experience for me.

I'm supposed to do Zumba this morning, but I got up at 4:45 to take my friend to the airport this morning and I'm exhausted! 2 of my dogs got out this morning, so i did some quick wandering of the neighborhood to round them up before taking her to the airport-at 5!!

We spent the whole day at the water park yesterday and I'm still a bit tired. Not used to 105 deg temps.

I would like to add my weight training back in, but I know it'll mess with the scale, and my head because of it. Probably next week. We'll see, I'm getting a bit flabby and miss that strong feeling.

Have a good day all!

Sorry about having to chase the dogs at that ungodly hour and when you had no time to spare.

This day definitely didn't start off well! I spilled my coffee getting into the car at o'dark thirty too!

I ate a lot today...used up a coupon for free gourmet pizza at a fabulous local brick oven place. Delicious! But I only had 2 pieces and know I was tempted for more. Working on intuitive eating and control, so that was progress.

Gonna be up tomorrow I'm sure, but it's ok. Figuring out how to live and maintain is what it working on .

Cheryl-exactly!

Dh wants to do my next round with me. That wont be fun! He's not big on sacrifice . He got a little taste of that last night. We went to his favorite pizza place last night to use up my free pizza bday coupon. He's GF now, so he had a chicken Cesar salad while I enjoyed some white pizza. First time ever! It used to be the other way around. I'd enjoy the salad and watch him and his pizza! He was so miserable, even though the salad was delicious too and our dd was inhaling it . I pointed out the role reversal to him and he didn't like that!
Still, it would be nice to have company In P2.

I'm up, as expected, but still in my window! . Barely . But IN!! woohoo! Dining out for lunch with my girlfriends so I know that won't be low carb entirely, but I will lighten up dinner to compensate and hope for the best!! I'm not feeling as panicky this P4 has I have in the past. I feel somewhat in control, that I can have some carbier things without going completely overboard and that my body can tolerate it much better than in the past. I'm not sure if it's all the RRARFing, metabolism refueling I did for those months of Dec. through March, or the Rx- but something seems different, better to me. I'm taking it seriously, trying to stay in control aware that any indulgence will also be around later, so I don't need to eat the WHOLE thing right now. I'm very pleased with this feeling and phase!

Yea! Go you. Have a great day and a great time with your girlfriends. Best of luck to DH if he goes for it. You said he was GF at the pizza place. That wasn't coming to me. What's it stand for? I know it's something to do with dieting if he couldn't eat the pizza.

Hm... Gluten Free Ceasar? Do they offer it with GF bread? That would be good. Surely would be a role reversal! I can't imagine it with my dh. Heaven forbid!
So happy you are feeling well & keeping in control.
