The scale has turned into a snail - slow going on the losses. STS today. As long as it does not go up, I'll be satisfied. I treat the scale as my counselor and mentor. It lets me know if "I" am in control. How "I" choose to feed myself. Lately, I have tamed the carb beast! Go me!

On another note - that four letter word - SNOW !

You will have another whoosh soon, they seem to come when you least expect it, but you have done so well to get into those 150's...
Snow wind and rain sounds awful, its nice to be inside when its like that.
Your dinner a few nights ago was the exact dinner we had, it was pork chops and virtually the same veggies, only I stir fried my veggies, I didn't even think of roasting them so might try that next time as my scales went up the next day, but it was funny to read we had the same dinner lol......anyway keep plodding on that pesky scale will move again soon.

That crazy scale...they say you can be losing inches even when the scale is staying the same...but it's SO rewarding to see those numbers go down!

You have some momentum behind you now...you're in control! Yay!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's steak and salad night. No heart boxes of chocolate are allowed to enter my house !

158.6 still........

I just heard Valentines Day has been "cancelled" in Georgia! No one is required to rush out to purchase last minute gifts. Silly that it had to be a public announcement - can't they use common sense?

Weight still the same............probably sit here for awhile and then gain it all back on vacation . Oh well! Story of my life!

Gloomy this morning.....no snow coming down, but chance of it or rain today. Yuck! Think I'll browse through the stores to look for new shorts that I don't need but want to look anyway .

Hey Susan!! You made it through V-day eating clean?! You certainly deserve a nice whoosh after that!! You're still in the 150's --- that's a great accomplishment! You're doing great!

Okay Laura! Meet us in Ft. Lauderdale and we will drive down to Key Largo to spend the first night! And then off we go to over the blue, blue waters of the Atlantic!

Can you believe the swimsuits were on display, but NO shorts!
I guess I was jumping the gun.....but I did get some new casual t-shirt type tops and 2 pair of nice fitting, dressy capris (size 10). I like the slimmer leg capris - not the "boxy" leg. My toes are shouting out for RED polish! Skimpy sandals here I come!

Weight is up - 159 - it's gonna go up more I'm sure while we are away. Better reel it in this week and be super good!

Hopefully tomorrow we will both be down on those scales....lucky you buying capris, I love capris, I bet they looked really good on you...weird no shorts though how odd when they were selling swimsuits.....you will soon be off away from all the dreary weather though, how exciting, I am looking forward to some pics.

Weight is still up - 159 - not happy about that. Last night I had a huge salad topped with a little spaghetti meat sauce. Tasty, but I wanted to snack later...........I did..........ate 6 oreos..................

I had no willpower.........why do I have 2 good weeks, then mess it all up!

My DH says I need to EXERCISE! That's like a double 4 letter word! I'll think about it..............

Lol....6 of them, that was funny though and it made me laugh this morning....I honestly am just glad there is me and hubby in our house with no food other than low carb, I know I just wouldn't be able to do it, I would have eaten all of them.
Maybe it will give you a whoosh in the next day or two, if it does I am going to buy some as well lol.
Oh no not that horrible exercise word, I totally hate exercising...but I can walk and dance....anyway we will back in the 50's again soon I know it.

If I could STOP at 6 Oreos...i would be much thinner!! Honestly...eating a whole row from the package is nothing for me...

^ shouldn't hurt you too bad...you'll probably be so busy and active on your trip...it will be a blast! Enjoy!!

Why do I wake up at 4:30 a.m. !?! Weight is the same - 159.......
I am feeling blah and it is sleeting outside right now. Schools are on a 2 hour delay. Will it ever end? Will the weather warm? Will we ever stop this madness of the winter? I just want to scream! Ahhhhhhhhh! That's better !

Going through the motions to get this week over with. I am anxious to get out of town! It can't come soon enough!

I hear you Susan.....we are both overdue for a whoosh.....its coming though I just know it, and the lack of sun isn't helping, it seems a lot of people are having problems losing right now, I am also putting it down to the weather and our mood lol.....good job on the screaming lol, that made me laugh.

Thanks Girls! Yep! I will shop for shorts in FL! I am hoping to lose some pounds while there also - is it possible? Lots of walking and no kitchen full of the wrong snacks to grab and eat all night. I don't want to over eat meals either! But we'll see - 3 days to departure !

Weight is STS - 159 and will not budge

Weather is warming up, but may rain today -

Your weight will drop -- don't worry, it will happen! In the meantime, get excited for your wonderful trip and fitting into size 10 capris! That is awesome.

All the exercise you will be getting while on holiday will help move those scales, I bet you wish you could take them with you....its going to be lovely not weighing every day though and to have a break from it all....it must be Saturday you go...whoop whoop.

Yes! I can't wait to get out of town! Anticipating the departure from this cold weather is driving me nuts! I want to leave NOW! We did have a nice day yesterday as it got up to 52 degrees. I was able to take the kids outside to ride their tricycles! They were so cute pedaling and using some of that pent up energy. Maybe we can get out there again today.

Scale report - 160 !!! I can't explain it....I feel like I am retaining fluid and feeling very frustrated and anxious about leaving town. Don't get me wrong, I am ready to go and the anticipation is killing me! Does that make sense? Is it Saturday yet!?!

Morning Susan....I think there must be something going on with the scales, I am up this morning to 161 and I even cut out carbs.....I think its the weather, I am sure you will lose more weight in the sunshine.
I feel really excited for you, its nearly Saturday and yes I can understand the frustration and anxiety.....its all probably put your hormones out of whack which is what is making the scale do mad things.....I bet if you could take scales with you then two days after being on holiday you would get a whoosh.....anyway just in case I don't get time to come back on here .......HAVE A GREAT TIME......try not to think of us lol.....and we will see you when you get home x

Thank You Sandy! I can't believe you are up a pound after resisting the birthday goodies . Hopefully, it will disappear as fast as it came!

And YES! I can't wait to get on that plane and fly to warmer weather!

I really need to re-evaluate my eating. It seems I can't eat anything anymore. Maybe it is the long, long dreary winter weather. I am anticipating the warmer weather and sunshine of Florida will revigorate my mindset and I can eat lighter = salads, fruit, etc. I need to shake it up, change it up and get back to walking! It sounds good....now just to do it!

Having my coffee and jumping in the shower soon! Off to sunny warmness !

Hoping that the scale holds the same number when I return or better yet a drop would be awesome. I'm dreaming BIG! Had my first big salad for dinner last night: butter blend lettuce, avocado, pineapple, red grapefruit, chicken breast, bacon bits, cottage cheese, Walden Farm dressing. Filling and Yummy!

Have a great week my LCF buddies!
