It's already TUESDAY and I am grateful for that. Food was really good yesterday. I was a bit hungry, so I was on the higher side...670c is where I ended. Today will be a spot on Up day! I have it all planned out. Between 1850-1900c! That even allows for some chocolate if desired! Love that!

I ended up eating a Nature Valley chocolate PB granola bar. QUITE tastey for only 190c! It was perfect! OH and dinner of the pork loin was YUMMY! WE all loved it. MY daughter kept nibbling on the pork, heck, it was so tender and good!

My food has been in line this week, hoping to see movement in the scale tomorrow. IF not, I may actually throw the DAMN thing out the window! Cursing it all the way down from my 2nd story bathroom!!!!!!!

Well, the WHOOSH fairy did INDEED visit me today! I was SHOCKED! I got on the scale twice and the number was the same both times. OWNING It is what I am doing. I was at 170.2 for what seemed like an ETERNITY....and now I am 166.8! LOVE THAT. Officially I have lost over 20 pounds since April...talk about slow! Now if I can just keep up my momentum! I would love to be 15X anything by cruise time, hell I would be thrilled with 160!!!!



I am so happy, if you can't tell!

OH MY, I can't tell you how happy this makes me!

I love the fact that we NEVER have to worry about the scale going the wrong direction, because eventually it will drop and when it does it is fantastic! I bounce up and down the same 1 1.2 lbs for a couple of weeks and then magically, I am down 3 lbs.

Great job Monica!

THanks guys. Lisa, I hate to send the whoosh fairy packing, as I would love to drop another 3 pounds next week...let's face it, that isn't likely to happen. I will send her your way......stay the coarse and SHE will be there soon. I KNOW IT!

Sunday - thank you so much! It's a process and a journey, one that takes a while. My ultimate goal is to get to 158. I haven't been below the 160's in at least 25 years and I want to be firmly in a size 8! We will see. DH and I argue about this...he thinks I am just perfect. I know my GUT could be smaller. I only have 2 pounds to go till my BMI is in the normal range...that's a good first goal!

It's Friday! I am already hungry, hoping that my usual 64 oz of water cures the grumblies!

You know, talking about men liking something to hang on to....my WONDERFUL DH sure has had a world of different sizes with me. Just in thinking back....

Met him - 185 pounds
Dating/engagement - 225 pounds
Wedding day - 190 pounds
Day I gave birth to our first child - 245 pounds
Day I gave birth to our 2nd child - 225 pounds
Start of Atkins Jan 2002 - 206 pounds
Lowest I got with Atkins - 167 pounds
Start of Juddd in April 2012 - 187 pound

He is a SAINT! You know, even at 225 pounds he felt/acted the same. I think now that I am more confident, it changes things a bit (you know, in bed). I'm not always trying to HIDE. No matter what, I will never be SKINNY. I have a big build, large frame, but I am well on my way to being where I think I need to be. 8 - 10 more pounds. It may take a year, but I truly feel THIS TIME, I will get there!

Hi Monica!

I was 225 pounds when I got engaged too! At 200, I still have a lot of body image issues, but it's getting better. I know I'll never be a skinny minnie, and I don't want to be. I'm fitting in my size 10's just barely....would love to be a size 8, but if I can get rid of this "muffin top" when I wear my size 10's, I will be pretty happy!

You look fantastic, and you have a fabulous attitude to match! I have to say that you've been such a great inspiration to me...and a mentor too! I'm sure glad you're here!

Lisa, you are way too kind. It has taken me many many years of HATING myself to get to where I am. I've stated this before, but when I turned 39, I SWORE that hating myself, focusing on the scale number and how it effects my attitude was going to STOP. It has been very good for me. I took 2+ years completely off the scale. It's important, especially for women, that we all know we are more than a number. Be it big or small, it is not what controls us, values us or allows us to have good/bad days. Life is what you make it and I finally, after 39 years told myself I was no longer going to be what I felt the SCALE was telling me I was!

How is everyone this fine Monday???

Me, I had a good weekend. It is Halloween week. I actually LOVE Halloween. I set up my lawn chair in the driveway to hand out my goodies. We always hand out HUGS (the drink jugs from Walmart). Kids get so thirsty walking around eating their candy. Drinks is what I go with. I typically have between 230-250 visitors. This year my son is going to hang out with me and hand out stuff. That will be fun. My daughter is having 4 friends over for pre-treating pizza and then she and her friends will go around with my DH! The girls are in 5th grade, but the world is too dangerous for the girls. She so wanted to walk around by herself, we just didn't think it was safe. She was fine with it so that helps.

Food was pretty darn good this weekend. Yesterday's dd was a bit higher at 695c. I had a lunch to go to for a child I mentored in the confirmation program at church. She knew I couldn't have gluten so she went out and bought GF brownie mix and made them just for me. I couldn't just take them and put them aside. I had a small lunch with them and had a brownie. She was so pleased watching me eat them AND she insisted I take the rest home with me. I will have another tonight. It was a great Sunday.

Today is an UP DAY! Love the MWF Up day rotation. Thinking when I get to maintenance I will figure out how to do that always. Not sure how to work that with Saturday and Sunday. Heck, DH only does about 2 DD's a week and he is happily maintaining, not sure I would be so lucky to have that work!

Sounds like you are all set for Halloween! This will be the first Halloween in our new house, so I'm not sure what to expect.

Enjoy your UP day today! I'm ready to have a perfect DOWN day!

Yesterday was a bit crazy. Ended up eating out for lunch, we NEVER EVER do that. My calories were probably a big higher than norm. The food was really good, that was nice. Just DH and I eating at a restaurant without having to deal with anyone else. Nice for a change.

Today is a DD. Hoping to not eat anything till lunch time. It's 10:15 and I am feeling really hungry! Hoping another jug of water helps with that.

So far so good. DD and it's almost 3:00 p.m. and I have only had 145c! WOOHOO! SUCCESS so far. I plan to eat at least 400c for dinner. I prefer not to go to bed hungry, when I do, it is really hard to fall asleep!

Looks like everyone is doing well. Yesterday ended at just shy of 700c. Not bad, but on the higher side of my range. Today is an UP DAY and it's Halloween!!!!!!!
