I weighed again on Saturday. I am part of a challenge group that goes by the seasons. Saturday was the start of FALL! I was down another 2 pounds on Saturday. I am finally back down to my signature weight! 170.2 now to get myself into the 160's!!!!! I seemed to have lost my way for July/August/part of Sept! Well I didn't lose my way, I kind of dropped into maintenance....way too early!

Had a good weekend. DD on Friday ended up really good. Saturday was a controlled up day and yesterday was a great down day. Thankful for my up day today. I was starved this morning! I ate a great breakfast and feel really good now!

Thanks girls! Now, if I don't sabatage myself, I am hoping to get well into the 160's in the next few weeks!

Yesterday was a good UD. It was a bit on the higher side. I came home from work and immediately started cleaning house. We were all doing something. Dinner was delayed and by the time we sat down to eat...I was BEYOND hungry. NEVER GOOD! I lost a bit of control and ate more than I planned. Today's DD has been going really well so far! That I like!

Hi Monica! I almost made it through yesterday's DD without eating after 1pm....but I caved around 6 and had a banana. It was too hard to hear the TV over my tummy growling.

Hope you have a great day!

Good to know girl!

Yesterday was higher end. I had a massive headache and ate a bit more for dinner thinking it would help. It did. Calories ended at 833c.

Today is a nice up day. Totally under control! Tonight we are shopping at Kohls. Hoping the size 10's fit perfect!

I love Kohls! We try to hold our shopping trips for there until we get one of those 30% coupons in the mail...then go nuts. So many good deals.

Good luck with the size 10's! I have 2 pairs of size 10 jeans that fit snug, but look pretty good! Vanity sizing for sure though, as they have 1% spandex in them! Oh well....I'm counting it as progress!

Hi Monica! You don't even look like the woman on your first page! What a transformation.
I'm 5'7' and fit into 10's but more 12 bottoms. I bet at 5'8" size 10 would be skinny on you!

You are both too kind. I did fit the 10's but I didn't like anything I put on last night. I am 42 years old and everything I find is either WAY too young or WAY too old! GRRRR Oh well, size 10 is where I would buy right now. Sadly, I didn't buy anything. The size 12's I am wearing today are baggy, that's a good feeling!

OH Lisa, we did have a 30% off, so I should have been shopping like mad, I apparently just wasn't in the mood!

Next week is my daughters birthday party and a family gathering for her birthday. Right now, Party is for Friday and Gathering is for Sunday...both are DD's. Next week I will adjust my rotations. I will do DD Monday, UD Tuesday, DD Wednesday, MD Thursday and UD Friday! That should do the trick. Life isn't all about food, but not feeling deprived on celebration days is the key to staying on Track. I could just seem myself attempting DD for both events, throwing in the towel and doing 3 UD's in a row. I think, this planning, is a better solution.

Thanks for the birthday wishes in my journal. Most of my friends have strayed I guess and don't visit the journal anymore. If it weren't for you I'll probably wouldn't post that much. So thanks again girl!!!

My DD didn't go as well as I hoped. I do believe I found the problem. When strawberries started to become hard to find, I switched my morning "breakfast" to cottage cheese and canned peaches. My blood sugar seems to crash each day by 1:00 now. I buy the no sugar added peaches and 1 can lasts me 3 days/breakfasts. It has to be that. I get so shakey, I have not other options. I bought strawberries last night and I will test that theory come Monday! GRRR Yesterday ended around 850c!

Today is an up day! I am leaving 1000c for tonight. We are at the softball fields all night. We have packed fried chicken, chips, guac, pico, cheese ball, jello, grapes and M&M's. It will be a really nice picni around 7:30! 1000c should cover it nicely!

I know I can't do plain cottage cheese, I'm starving an hour later! Weird, huh?

Oh I ate too much at dinner for my bday yesterday. I had a frozed mudslide, red lobster bisquits, fried calamari/veggie appetizer, king crab legs, and half of their delish choc. cake.
We only ate there because a movie nearby was starting soon after dinner. I didn't really have a preference, so we went to see this shoot em up sci fi. at one point I couldn't take it so I visited other movies while that one was finishing! LOL
Got a dozen yellow roses delivered, no card but I know it's from my ex. He always gave me yellow roses. They are totally gorgeous, but not a good reminder. Should have given them to my girlfriend when she visited tonight.....
Tomorrow is casual dress (layers) and bring my camera. There is a Taste of St. Louis festival downtown this weekend, so I'm guessing that will probably be one of the stops.
Won't be getting picked up til 2.00 or 2.30, gotta go to the clinic and get an immunization shot first...
Have a good weekend!

Today all I had was a loaded omelet at Denny's, one chicken sausage patty and decaf/cream coffee with my dad for an early dinner. Still full at 9pm.

Hope you had a great weekend Monica! I'm chalking September up as a learning process, and approaching October in a new light! Started out today's DD with a great workout and good coffee!

We had softball all night Friday night. Saturday was the costume game. We did a spoof on Toddlers and Tiaras. It was really fun! My parents came to our house and we hung out with them all day and watched the game. We then went out for dinner. Yesterday was church/SS/games/movies. I ended up messing up my blood sugar completely. We thought we would play 1 game and be done. Well the girls played their hearts out and won, so we had another game at 3:30. I didn't plan correctly and didn't have food with me. I ended up too many carbs and not enough protein, this morning while walking with DH my blood sugar crashed HARD! I even had to have DH hold my arm to keep me steady! Well, I needed to switch up my rotations for JUDDD so today is an up day. I am still a bit shakey so I know my blood sugar isn't totally where it should be. GRRRR hypoglycemia, you think I would learn. I have only had it my WHOLE LIFE....when will I LEARN?????

Haven had a great time at her games. Monster Bash is her favorite tournament all year! Here is her and her MALE coach before the game on Saturday. I don't wear much make up at all so I had to bed samples from my Mary Kay rep!

OH and I think giving up drinking has actually hurt me, not helped me! before I would give up the dessert for an easily measureable glass or 2 of wine. Now I have X cookies or M&M's . I am totally going in the wrong direction. I will still stay away from drinking till 10/19, because that was the goal I set. Hopefully things get in check for me. I am my own worst enemy!

Love the pictures! Glad you had a good time! Sounds like we both had some struggles over the weekend. I told my fiancÚ last night that I think I skipped the weight loss phase and went straight to maintenance--Achh, it's all part of the learning curve, I guess. Today's a new day....but it looks like I have to get through my DD without you! Enjoy your UD!

Michael and I have only been hanging out and taking pictures for about 3 weeks now?
Over the past three weeks I’ve mentioned:
At one point I mentioned it's hard to find old Wisconsin beef sticks (long sticks I cut up for a low carb snack I sometimes have in the movies).
I have a purple lily tattoo on my shoulder.
We went to listen to a blues band last weekend and I loved the female vocalist Nikki Hill.
I really liked the garlic parm chicken wings at buffalo wild wings and Stella artois beer. The last time we went to the show I got some gummy bears. I also told him the best calamari is at a place called Sage in town.
Told him I was sorry I didn't go to Lone Elk State Park this past week with Mary.

Saturday we went up to Lone elk Park and had a picnic (saw elk and bison roaming free)
He set the picnic table with a tablecloth and a glass vase with purple lilies.
Real china instead of paper plates
Garlic parmesan chicken wings, stella artois beer, salad, fruit, choc cake for dessert
For a present he gave me a package with my favorite gummies, wisconsin beef sticks and an autographed cd of the vocalist we heard the week before. Nikki Hill. He met with her to pick up the cd, she offered to deliver it to me on my birthday, but he didn't think I'd be home during the day. We shot pictures in the park then went to my favorite park, Castlewood. I made it up the bluffs miraculously. LoL and some pictures. Later we went to Sage to get the calamari, instead of eating there we went to his place and had dinner by candlelight by the pool. He had arranged for us to meet up with the vocalist Nikki later to listen to her brothers band, but I was too tuckered. We rented a movie that I had been wanting to see and I was home by midnight.
Will post pics over in my journal.

I had a great Down day. The peaches I was adding to my cottage cheese (although only 1/3 of the can) was causing my blood sugar issues. Yesterday I switched back to strawberries and did GREAT!!!! I weighed and AGAIN, I am exactly the same. 170.2 == WHAT is it with that FREAKING number??? I have been there since Mid-July! GRRRR I know some of it was my own problem....but really??? All I need is .4 and I am in the 160's!!!!!!!!!! Come on now! Next week, I AM JUST SURE OF IT!!!!!!!!

he took a couple of me, one was fuzzy and the other was unflattering. lol
I got three of him on the bluffs from the side and back.
I'm still yearning for the physicality of my ex 6'3', 235, passionate, Italian was 50 but looked late thirties, dynamo in the boudoir...although I'm not yearning to ever see him again. He's Crazy!! LOL
Michael is 5'5", tiny 59 y/o with a bald head and a white ponytail at the back of his head. Not my type physically, does attraction ever grow? I usually jump right in with someone I'm attracted to. I'm taller/bigger than him. I loved feeling small the first time in my life with said ex. Am I being superficial? I know he's attracted to me for sure...

I like being smaller than my guys but I did date a guy who was just a tad taller than me and was really THIN! He was very good at other things and made up for that in other ways....if you know what I mean! I am an old married girl now. Been married for 15 1/2 years! GOSH remembering dating and such is tough!
