I agree girls are harder.

by the way for the longest time i thought your username on here was read "dessertgurl" like treats yum. because i am unable to spell. haha and i thought that was odd for a weight loss site. THEN when i remembered how to spell i realized it was "desertgurl" lol as in hot dry weather. haha. i crack myself up!

Lexi, thanks for the giggle this afternoon!

Girls are HARD...good grief how did my parents survive w/ 4 girls...I'd have gone mad! No wonder we were so spread out, they didn't wanna go to jail at any point during our childhood w us all together!

Despite another clean eating day, I'm up a smidge this morning. Eh well, whatevs, right!

DH made a comment last night that he can see a difference in my shape already...especially through my middle..he even said it's time for some new tops because they're getting baggy all over I'll take it!

That 20#s is gonna elude me for a couple days....I figured it would
How do I know this? Because today is Friday, and Friday's mean reward days. I always gain something on reward days, or stay the exact same. Never a loss. I don't expect a loss. BUT! Saturday I start a new cycle and I'm switching things up alittle bit and switching the type of cycle I'm gonna do. This is good stuff!

Nuthin but love for you! There is ALWAYS something positive to say...sometimes we just have to go lookin for it...or, it's really right in front of us and we just have to be willing to see it. You have done amazing with JUDDD, this is but a mere blip in the grande scheme of everything.

Dani~ you are so right!! I love a grand scheme. I just realized why it's a BAD idea to weight on a DD. This may have thrown me if it wasn't an UP day today...I didn't lose weight but I still get to eat.

Reward day yesterday. Had Chipotle for dinner---worst stomach ache ever. In fact, I only ate about half, even that turned out to be too much...
I'm gonna have to rethink these days so I get the added calories in I'm supposed to without feeling awful.

Thankful for a LC day today!

Just white-knuckling my DD...still hours before bed. I'm at 480 now and may cave and call it a MD....having a real tough one. Never eat oatmeal for breakfast on a DD!

Happy for you, though!!

I'm still trying to figure out what you're happy for me for??
-----------------------------

So I spent most of yesterday being miserable...I was never more thankful for bedtime!
I'm feeling much better this morning, so thankful. Yesterday was awful, I missed several meals and drank regular Coke most of the afternoon--only thing that sounded good and seemed to agree w/ the tummy..
Just glad it's OVER!

Another LC day today. Looking forward to my food today!

Glad you are feeling better Danielle! Keep up the good work on sticking to plan! It's amazing how our bodies respond when we aren't used to eating a certain type of food for awhile. P.S. I love Chipotle! YUM!

It WAS awful, and yes, I am so sad about my beloved Chipotle.
------------------------

Much better food day yesterday. I even went over calories by about 100 so I musta been hungry

DH is off today. I think we may start some of our Christmas shopping... kids are so much harder to shop for now that they're older! Picky! Picky!

Great HC day yesterday. Got all my water in.

TMI alert:
TOM started again.......
I'd had some spotting the last day or 2--nothing major..
Welp, today I know it's not goin away.
My "normal" cycle going from Oct.- 28 days forward (and not including the one I had a week & a half ago....) was supposed to start 11/21.. 3 cycles in the last month

*sigh*

Explains why I've been tired the last few days...but man, I'm irked!

new low! I just love watching you shrink!

TOM - boooooo! Three in one month is NO GOOD! I just had one after 10 weeks, and I was really afraid it was going to be a humdinger, but it was just a normal one. I wouldn't mind going on the every 10 week schedule - we shall see.

Have a great Monday!

Yes, once a month is more than enough (too much!) and I am not quite sure wth is going on I hope I'm ok!

Bren, thanks honey!! I just wish I could melt alittle faster... And yes, it was his idea, wasn't it?!

Blonde, it's ok..I figured maybe you were delirious or something from your DD I love you too, friend!



I forgot to tell you guys! I bought a new pair of jeans yesterday, a size smaller. They fit perfectly.....the ones I'd bough for LA fit just like the new ones...now they're alittle big and get even bigger when they get stretched.. Nice validation on all fronts! I just need some tops but I'm not really seeing anything I like, yet.

Yay on new jeans. That is the best part of losing weight - getting smaller clothes!

Sorry about TOM. I believe there is a blood test that shows if you are starting meno or not. I'm not sure of your age, but think you are too young. I went through it fairly young, though.

Thank you! ♥

Hmmmmmm, never heard of that. Thanks for letting me know! Just turned 44 in Sept...cycles have gotten more crazy the last year or so....
------------------

Man, I'm tired this afternoon! DD has kept me super busy running around for school... sure, I complain about it now but I'll miss it when she's gone off to college next year!

I'm so upset...
For my b-day DH got me one of those bands you wear on your wrist to track your steps, sleep, etc.. For some reason it just stopped working. Been trying to troubleshoot w/ someone but I really think it's just dead cause nothing is working to help it. I feel naked w/out that band on my wrist!

Dani, you are doing great with your weight loss! Congratulations. I love the support and compliments coming from your DH. He clearly loves you! If you have TOM, please take it easy. I had it last week and you feel weaker with TOM while dieting. Take naps, take it easy, have a nice cup of tea, get a massage or a mani/pedi. We need those nice relaxing things because TOM is really rough on the body.
