Hi everyone! I am super happy to report that I have lost 2lbs! I am totally shocked! I totally feel the pre-TOM bloating starting, but I checked three times this am...I am really down 2 lbs! I'll change my ticker in a minute.

Rakel--What did you do in the weight room?

Karen--Good for you for having a plan!

Schmoodle--Sounds like you have been doing really well!

Cheryl--Wow, talk about a productive day!

Nicole--Big hugs to you! You are doing great!!!! I really like the dvd and cd!

I tried the cd and the 30 part of the dvd today. I really, really like them both. I had to make some modifications during the dvd b/c of my knee--but overall I really liked it. Now I don't feel guilty for skipping the gym tonight and getting my nails done instead! I don't want to get into the habit of substituting the dvd for my gym workouts, but it will be nice for those days I can't get to the gym later--although I plan on doing the the cd and the dvd most days.

I have to get back to work....I have lots to do today...don't we all!!!

Have a great day!

mj, I did a lot of different free weight exercises that my fiance showed me. Then I did some things like crunches, girl pushups, stretches, etc (basically, I did the YOU on a diet beginner workout). for about 20 minutes. Today I plan on getting on the exercise bike for 35 to 45 minutes! Down .lb from yesterday!

I don't have a lot of time today, but wanted to check in. I might have some more time this afternoon, so I'll check back then.
I had a good on plan weekend, but not enough exercise. But, I also went down a pound on my weigh in, so that was encouraging. Just need to keep on!!

Hi Ladies! Mind if I join in? I seriously need some accountability right now.

I am in week 7 of my weight loss journey (this time), but I am starting to flounder and must stop it. Holiday or not, I will be on plan for the next 4 weeks.

Today's menu (forgive the 1st few entries - I was having a moment)
3 Squares of a mint chocolate bar - 115
1 bag of cinnamon sun chips - 380
2 60 calories chocolate sticks - 120
Grilled chicken plain - 270
chili - 270
apple - 100
2 chicken tenders - 360
1 cup rice - 200
dessert - 140

That adds up to 1955 which is less than my 2000 calorie limit.

I also plan on going to water aerobics tonight for 45 minutes.

Anyone mind if I join in this month? I need accountability weaning off sugar...I am a serious addict and it's been hard I just need to report to someone that I made it another day with this detox--yes, to me it is serious detox right now.

I am really proud of myself. I accomplished a lot today. What a good feeling!! After weeks of feeling so overwhelmed at work it's nice to have a day like day!!!

Rakel--Good for you!!! I think it's time for me to get my younger brother to show me some new stuff w/ free weights, too!

Diane--Yea! I pound is a pound!

Sandi--Welcome!! Have a great time at water aerobics tonight!

Melissa--Welcome back!

Purplefirefly--Welcome!

I'm concerned about the weather....it's getting really icky out there. I just talked to hubby.....after talking to him I have decided to still go ahead and get my nails done tonight. I hope I don't regret that decision later on! We'll see!

Update: 45m(minutes) on the exercise bike, I went a little light, just barely over 65% HR, but I wanted to go for endurance, tomorrow I'll intensify a little bit more and work myself up gradually as I did for the 30m workout.

Food so far so good today! Getting back to writing everything down. It's easy to get away from you if you don't remember to do it after you eat. The past few days I have been slacking, saying, "Well I'll fill it out later" but that kind of defeats the whole point so I'm working to that end as well.

Hope everyone is doing well or getting back on track!

I made it without sugar another day wasn't hard today, no temptations around. It was my daughter's first night of cheerleading practice so we were out late and ran to subway...becoming habit to go there instead of McDs, and the kids really like it now, too.

Hubby was diagnosed with diabetes today, so he is suddenly listening to the healthier eating habits we keep when he is not home. I have to learn to cook for a diabetic, it seems he can't eat ANYTHING now but I know it will be good for us all in the long run.

Anyway, another day down with 4 pts scored.

Morning chicks!
On the menu for today:
B: coffee, peanut butter oatmeal
S: celery with LCLC
L: Leftover salmon and salad
S: latte and an apple
D: Chili with lots of veggies
S: Yogurt with agave nectar

Purplefirefly: I did the sugar/refined carb detox last spring, and it was rough, but just for a few days. You will be feeling great very soon, and your cravings will go away. BTW, my DH is diabetic also, and I follow SBD. He does too, because I am the cook! It is great for keeping his blood sugar levels steady.
