Default Two-teens into Onederland - So close you could scream

I started a new thread because our old one was getting pretty long.

I'm still on the high-end of my two-teens and haven't seen the single digits in more than a month. My exercise regime is much more intense (yay!) but my eating has been out of whack. I am really mindful during the day but the Cute Boyfriend has been in San Francisco for the last three weeks, making me a single mom during the week (he's home on weekends). And being stuck in the house once she goes to bed (7PM) has been BORING. My plan was to do one of my workout videos once she went down but it's been SO HOT that I've just vegged out... oh and ATE.

My goal this week is simple. Same exercise regiment, on plan eating once I get home from work. That should be easy, right?! Sigh.

You can do it! Find something to keep your hands busy, that helps me. Some people swear by crafting or cross stitch where you literally can't do that and eat, it'll get the project dirty.

Thedollylala -- I know what you're saying. I'm now at a weight I was at in my early 20s (I'm 41) and my body is TOTALLY different.

I have popped up above 220 (220.6) but I know it is period weight and will be off in a few days, so I'm staying here. I ran my first 10k on Sunday. Did ok. I have been thinking a lot about what it will be like to race at less than 200 lbs.

I was 22 when I was 198 last I'm 28 now and I have this flap jack stomach fluff just didn't even have that last time. I don't know if its from being pregnant or having a c section

I'm at 211.4! I don't remember being below 200 since middle school, as far as I know. I never really weighed myself. At any rate, as an adult I definitely have never been under 200.

It's funny, people ask me now that I'm losing weight, "Are you able to fit into all of your old clothes now?" I have NEVER had clothes this small before. I shopped at a normal store the last time I did a big summer shopping spree. It's the first time I can ever remember doing that.

Flap jack stomach fluff is now my favorite description in the world. Boo for the fluff. I think it's probably a little of both.

I have popped up above 220 and I can't find any reasonable explanation. I ran yesterday, ate on plan, etc. I should be whooshing through these pounds. I know I am probably gaining muscle BLAH BLAH BLAH. The scale is going the wrong direction!

The scale decided to be kind to me today and I saw 214.

At least it's in the right direction!

You and I both! I tried on bridemaids dresses at David's Bridal last weekend and I am a size 16. I also bough my prom dress from David's Bridal in 2002. I wore a size 18 then.

Sometime I really struggle with the idea of a goal weight. I randomly picked 175 when I started. Now I'm really focused on getting below 186, as that would make me overweight when you consider BMI. I'd eventually like to be at 165, so I can say I lost 100 lbs. I have no idea what I will look like at any of these weights. The lowest weight I can remember was 190 and that's after losing over 20 lbs my freshman year of college. Sometimes I think my goal is to wear a size 10, because that seems like "normal" size to me.

I'm still crashing this party -- I'm 222 today but I am sure it is pms weight and also maybe a pound from vacation eating. It'll be off next week.

I started working with a personal trainer in preparation for my half-marathon in October and today I am *very* sore. She's got me doing lots of squats and lunges and ab work and planks. Maybe there's a little bit of water retention as my muscles repair themselves as well.

Guys I just have to stop in and post that they brought in pizza for everyone at work today. I had 1 slice and I am not having a 2nd! By telling you guys that, it makes me accountable!

Edit: Made through the day with that 1 slice

Good idea, Underwater!

Today I went on my 6th 3-mile run. Let me tell you how proud I am! AND I got a blister and I kept running! Superhero right now.

My weight is at the low-end of my "bounces" (apparently I either weight 220 or 214 but nothing else). But I have renewed strength every time I run so I'm hoping we'll see a downward tend next week!

I have been listening to this audiobook called Habits during my runs about how we make habits and how they can be ruined/reinforced, etc. It's pretty interesting. I recommend it.
