OMWD, my mother lives just 1.5 miles from me. She's 82 and systematically devouring my life. And she doesn't care. Once she gets her cataract surgeries done, I'm dumping her!

She's really mean-spirited. I have stopped bringing my sons over to visit her. She says hurtful things to them about their weight and about who they are, just like she used to say to me. I don't have to let her get away with this. She told me that I looked like I was gaining weight again. Scale, tape measure and clothes are saying something completely different, but she still has to ruin how proud I am of my efforts. And her toxins are so ingrained in me that for a few days, I believed her and was feeling bad about myself again!

But one positive is coming out of this, I've got TONS of practice at not eating when stressed! And I'm down another .5lb. So it's feeling like both my feet are now in the 290s. Last night I stood on the scale and saw that even after a day of eating, I weighed less than 300 lbs. So now I feel safe here and ready to push on, with no looking back! I feel so confident that I know what I'm doing and I'm going to succeed! No matter how long it takes!

Mrs. T, it gets about as cold there as it does in Central California on most days in the winter (except for a few really good freezes), so bundle up and enjoy the rain. I love the winter! Hate the summer!

I did a little research and found a few women on the 3FC boards who are over 50, post-M and continue to lose weight at a steady rate. Their recipe is to keep up with weight training and keep calories low. More work for us in our futures! That's okay. We'll be the ones with the strong bones and good balance as we age.

Lovely, sending a shout out to you! And good, calorie-burning vibes!

Okay, gotta go put drops in my mother's eyes...ugh! She's decided she can't do it.

Georgia, your mum sounds..ummmm- well.....really mean! I'd not be taking my kids anywhere near her either! My mum has always been a bit on the nay-sayer side, "you need a hair cut" rather than "you look pretty" and my self esteem was ( and is) pretty ordinary but in her 70's now she is a lot less judgmental. And she has weight issues to deal with too, so is always complimentry of weight loss efforts.

Good for you, time now to get through those 290s and down another notch in the numbers.

We can do this, we NEED to do this, here's wishing everyone a strong minded POP week !

Georgia- If I didn't know better I would say we were sisters. My mom and your mom sound identical.

Mrs.Tee- Thanks for the POP encouragement. I needed that today. Although I knew I was going to be POP it was still a rough one. For some reason Sundays are the hardest for me.

Well I hate to say it but I think in some way all of us here in this thread had someone who lowered our self esteem when we were young or even still now. How else did we let ourselves get into this predicament. It all started for me when my father passed away when I was really young. My mom who I am sure tried kinda lost it, wasn't the best role model. To top it off she was so angry and upset that she became horribly down on everyone.

We had her for dinner last night and even though she is also dieting (well more the illusion of dieting) I could not believe that she was putting me down about my couple of days off diet while she was pouring a puddle of EVOO over her broccoli and eating half my dinner. (Yes she literally poured it out of the liter bottle out of my cupboard.)

Tomorrow should be busy but I already packed all of my POP items and even threw some nuts in my purse for a afternoon snack to make sure that I don't stray.

Have a fabulous night and talk to everyone in the AM.

Ok one more tooting of my own horn!!!! Sorry girls just sooooo very excited. Scale said 286 this morning and since my husband and mother are the only one who know I am dieting I can't exactly scream this in my office like I really want to......

Way to go OMWD!!!! Nice

My scale decided that I maintained this week, which is a perfectly wonderful thing in my eyes, because it means I've -really- lost those 27 pounds, and like I said... "readjustment week". I'm just rolling with it, and keeping my eye on the prize of 299.

OMWD - GREAT work!!!! Really pushing away from those 3 numbers!!!! BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Me too Lovely - I think I will have a "stay the same" adjustment week, but I've had really big loses the 2 weeks prior so I'm due a readjustment week.

I'm holding steady at 131.5 or 289.8, but have a NSV target coming up - i have a uniform shirt for coaching elite netball I want to wear done up on the 20th of this month. It fits well everywhere else but around the hips/belly where I carry a lot of weight. I am an hourglass shape naturally and have a waist but boy the hips go on for e-v-e-r....
So, fingers crossed I am NEARLY there- it is just pulling a slight bit - I could wear it if I gave up breathing...

Morning/evening Georgia - how was the wicked witch of the west ( your mum)....

MrsTee- So glad you are almost at your NSV! I must say sometimes I feel that those are the better of the two. It gives you a chance to really see where you have improved. I too have hips that go on forever. I used to think it was a curse as a kid but now if I could just find them under all my fat I will be thrilled with them.

Lovely- I figure my adjustment week is probably fast approaching since I lost so much the last two days.


Georgia- Hope you are doing well...

Well ladies another POP day. A hard one but hey not as seeing the scaley monster after I haven't been POP.

I suppose it is time to crawl into bed and watch a little TV before bed. Gosh I really do not know where time goes anymore......

Oh yea I bumped my weight lifting up to every day with my treadmill this week... Can't wait to see if it helps...

Hi all!!!

I bit of an ordinary day for me yesterday, luncheon for staff at work, ate a bit too much sushi... and a big dinner of curry cooked by my hubbie but he served me quite a large serving ( and I ate it all *sigh*) so nothing terribly off plan, but just larger portions than I have been having and a lot of soy sauce (sodium) chucked in there!
So, the scaly monster rewarded me with a bonus pound of water weight - so time to take my own advice, and have a excellent POP day today. I don't expect to lose weight this week as I have had two big loses last two weeks, but a "stay the same" would be nice.
Silent - get your skates on girl - we're keeping a seat warm for you and Lovely and Vortexx!

Hey gals! Sneaking in here for half a second.

Now, I have no idea what my weigh-in will be officially come next Monday, but I've been doing daily weighings to chart the fluctuations (find it interesting myself!) and today is the first day I've ever seen 299 on the scale. That means long as I stay on track it shouldn't be too long before I hop on over. Just thought I'd share a little mini-victory!

Keep up the work, peeps!

Lovely, I will take that as an officially qualification for the 290s/280s group! Yipee!!!!

Silent, girlfriend, I'm rooting for you too! OMWD is right, you've accomplished so much! I so wish that motivation and desire alone made my *** melt off faster. I have been bumping between 298 and 300 for days now. There is no freefall on this side of 300, and I'm so disappointed with that! We must want this really badly, because we're all still here and on track.

(Except that my car just accidently got sucked through the Taco Bell for a stickin' little chicken quesedilla! Wish I had looked that calorie count before I drove down that street. 520 calories?! What?!)

I'm still in my summer funk, but the temps are down this week and I'm not quite as cranky. My mother had her cataract surgery yesterday. Somehow, she can't seem to put her own eye drops in, three times a day. Guess who gets that job? It would be easier if I could just go in, do the job and then leave. But I never seem to leave unscathed. She gives me tomatoes, some form of payment to me, but I get criticized or given more jobs. It's very disruptive. Today she got to me, so I caved to the Taco Bell siren's song. Was trying to find something lower in calories. Guess I picked the wrong thing.

I have been given the task (by my EBT trainer), to learn to love the little Georgia inside of me. One way I do it is to include "her" in my hugs and the love I give to my boys. And then today, I figured that what I didn't get when I was a kid, to have fun with friends, that's what I'd indulge in now. It happens that I now live near one of my childhood friends and we've reconnected in many ways. She's recently moved to a lovely home in the country that has a large pool. She said I can come over to swim at any time. So I think I will! On Friday afternoon. I bought a new bathing suit and I'm ready to use it!

Pushing for 297 for Friday. I'm sticking to vegetables till then!

MrsTee- Don't worry to much about eating everything on the plate it happens to the best of us. Me especially. I seem to think that the world is going to come to an end if I leave food. So just because of this I am serving myself smaller portions and making it a point to leave at least one or two bites behind. Doesn't always work but I figure it cuts just a bit out of my day.

Lovely- So excited for your 299! Way to go!!!!

Georgia- I think you are doing a fabulous job in spite of your mother. As for the Taco Bell incident well you know what. Who Cares??? It was one little oops and you got back on the horse. Next time you come to that point you will know that the few minutes of pleasure isn't worth the guilt afterwards..."
Now I will not lie and tell you that I don't still indulge in "Food Porn" every so often but I have made a really conscience effort to only do this when I want to and not when I need to if you catch my meaning.

Well ladies today is day 5 POP! Scale monster is for some reason still being kind. He threw up a 284.5 this morning but I refuse to post it till I see it again tomorrow. LOL

Feeling a little down about this whole diet thing. (I know its a lifestyle change, but right now I am trying to get some of the major lbs off and than I can ease up a litte) I feel like every day is somewhat mundane. Same thing different day same thing different meal. Plus work has been really crazy for both my husband and I. I think that we are going to take a weekend trip next weekend and go Off Plan for a day just to give ourselves a quick recharge. Obviously this doesn't mean crazy eating but since we are on SBD Phase 1 our eating is really restricted. I doubt we eat more than 1300 calories a day.

Anyways have a great night and see you in the AM..

Hey,

Well visiting again gals. Trying to drum up the motivation to go for a walk since a SWIM didn't happen today. No one to go to the lake with tonight and I figure its not really safe to go alone to a lake... with no lifegaurds haha I want to see this side of the 300 barrier. I just need to make some better choices to get there.

Might change out of shorts and put a sweater on even though its nice and sunny and a balmy 17 degress. Not to protect me from the cold but mosquito protection.

It's always something eh? small window of time where there are no bugs and its not super cold!

OMWD - you and I started almost exactly the same weight - I was 324.6 - so we've both lost 35lb ( hooray for US)- I am down to 289.6 this morning a giant .1 or 100 grams or .2204 of a pound but I'll take it!!!
A stay the same was about what I am due for.
I know what you mean - I too would like to hussle through the next 20 kilos or 45 pounds and then I feel I look more "normal"? Don't stand out as the fat lady quite as much - does that make sense?
So..... thats about 6 months of hard work....Xmas Challenge for us by the sound of it?????

Georgia, just a little slip is nothing - not even worth thinking about - especailly if you get POP straight away...don't let a negative mother get in your head. You're a big girl now!!!

Lovely - 299- you're here girl ! Here to stay - or at least until we all move to the 270 thread....

Silent - so good to see you! Happy you're dropping by....


NSV - today I wore undies ( underpants) that have normally rolled down because of my too large derriere - but today, they actually stay up!!!!
