Hey Susan. I agree on the beef. I had the same amount yesterday. But it is good for a change of taste. Hope you do go this morning.

154

I can't believe it! Super Happy! I didn't have anything after dinner again. It was very hard! I kept saying to myself "I want to see a lower number more than I want to have a snack." over and over to myself. I made myself go to bed at 10:00 pm when I usually go at 11:00. This is awesome!

Thanks Sandy! I don't think I'll see the 140's in a week, but you certainly will at the rate you are going! 150 for me would be monumental! But I don't think I will lose 4 pounds in one week but I'll aim for it - might miss - but I'll aim!
So glad you are here for me!

Have a great day! We have rain, but the yard is greening up !

Good Morning....hope your weather is going to be nicer today, at the moment its cloudy here but there is always hope the sun could come out, I can actually feel the weather is changing slightly so I think spring is nearly here....hoping....

So we have spent the month of March getting out of those pesky 160's and going down into the 150's.....so this months is going to be getting into the 140's.....I honestly don't remember the last time I saw the 140's so it is going to be a really happy month for us lol, and also we are going to have sunshine and lots of exercise which is going to help.....it is going to be amazing....we have so much to look forward to....oh by the way when do you go on your holiday...I have forgotten....

]152.8

Unbelieveable!

I cannot cannot believe this is true! I weighed 154 yesterday morning. How can I possibly weigh 152.8 today!?! I got on the scale before I went to bed and it said 153.8 and I said "well, that's nice, but I'm sure it won't say that in the morning". But it was even better in the morning! If this doesn't stick, I'm going to be so disappointed. Did those snacks after dinner make that much of a difference?

I really, really, really wanted a snack last night but I muddled through the urge.

I still don't believe this!

March certainly was interesting Sandy! Yes, we are expecting very lovely weather this week! That will be very welcomed also! Trip will be about 31/2 weeks! I know I'll gain some weight during the trip !

Holy Moly! I'm still in shock!

Awesome news Susan! Glad to hear your making progress! Also glad to hear your weather is finally improving. We are having a nice day today, forties and sunshine. We had another burst of snow this weekend so the ground is covered with a couple of inches of snow but it's melting fast. Bring on the mud! lol I don't care I just want warmer weather, I have a mop and I know how to use it!

APRIL !!!

I woke up at 4:00 a.m. But I'm WIDE AWAKE and the scale shows me at 152.2 . I have noticed that these last 3 or 4 days I have had to go to the bathroom throughout the night more often. I of course go before bed, but wake up a couple hours later and go again, then wake up earlier than normal and go again. Is this part of ketosis? I have keto sticks, but they have never turned really dark. I guess I need to pull them out and use them again to check. Anyway, I am glad the number went down. I am hoping to maintain at least with 150 during this month since Easter is coming and so is our trip! I have to be realistic because I know I'll consume some decadent yummies during our stay!

Looking forward to getting outside today - yesterday was sunny, but the wind kept the temps down a little.

Morning Susan.....brilliant you hung onto that number and lost a bit as well....great job woman.....
Oh that bathroom thing drives me nutty....every night for the last 2 years I have to get up whether I drink lots of not.....but then when I reached 153 pounds I stopped and had four nights of really amazing sleep with no getting up....and I thought it was a weight thing and was so happy lol....but then last night it started again and I had to get up at 5.30 this morning grrrrr.
So I don't know if its ketosis with you or not, maybe one of the others might know....you are lucky to have gotten away with it for so long if this has been happening to me for ages now lol....I just put it down to an age thing, which I am fighting against lol......anyway well done you on losing again whoop whoop.....
Really hope you get outside today and that its sunny for you......love your hair....it looks amazing....

Edit to add......your little granddaughter is totally gorgeous....

Good morning Susan! Ahh yes the peeing! Such a pain in the behind. I agree with Sandy that it's a combination of diet and aging. I find that I pee more often throughout the day as well as sometimes getting up during the night, even when I'm not dieting or doing anything special. I have to plan my trips to the grocery store around the bathroom, lol. In fact, my sister and I are planning a trip to New Jersey this weekend to visit family and it takes us longer to get there now because we have to stop more often to use the bathroom. lol It used to be a five hour trip, now it's six. I use the ketostix and they work for me although I know there's controversy about them on the forums. I figure if it helps me to stay motivated, I'll continue to do it. Have a great day and your granddaughter is adorable!!

Food Stats - 535 cal / 12 carbs

I looked into the ketosis and bathroom thing. It appears that the body releases more water when you are getting into ketosis.
So I guess that's what is happening to me. I usually never get up in the middle of the night. So all in all, it's a positive reaction to the fewer carbs!

Thanks for the lovely comments about my Emma! She can be a "pill" sometimes....I pity her mother when she is a teenager LOL - payback time LOL !!!

Good Luck to everyone's weigh in tomorrow!

H*LL No! Proud of you for resisting! You should tell him you are a diabetic and to stop with the candy. Is he trying to whoo you with sweets? "Little girl, want some candy?" Or is he an old innocent grandpa kind of guy?
