Streudel - Congrats on the 2 lb loss.

KarinRose - A loss is a loss, at least it's in the right direction!

Jillybean - So sorry to hear about your loss, I can definitely understand your heartache. I too am hoping for Onederland by Fall or Christmas, although my hearts desire would be to hit it by Labor day, when I have a big family reunion. We can do it together!

Josie - Great job on the 20%. I love thinking of weight loss in terms of percentage. I think it really puts it into perspective.

Wanna - So happy for you to get back in the two-teens, but we sure are going to miss you.

So I had a crazy weekend. Spent 5.5 hours in the ER on Saturday with my hubby so I only ate a bowl of cereal for the whole day. He's fine today, thankfully or he might have ended up back in the ER with a wife induced injury. Yesterday we were so tired we didn't do much of anything. I lost abt 2lbs on Sunday morning after eating so little, but it's back this morning as I suspected. Booooo! But I'm still hoping for a whoosh to get me closer to the two teens!

Have a great Monday everyone!

I'm finally back on after months of moving and family issues. I have decided that I need to do this for myself and recommit to losing the extra weight. I've been counting all of my points for three days now and I have been staying within my points. Now if I can SLOWLY add In some exercise ill be doing great.

Your stories are SO inspiring to me! It is great to see how well everyone is doing. I can't wait until I am back in the teens!!
I haven't had a landmine come up yet, but seeing how everyone is dealing with them - you really do inspire me.

So I've been stuck at 219-220 for the past month. I'm surprised that I'm lasting this long and haven't given up. I think I've hit a landmine because I haven't been to the gym and the way that I want to exercise isn't cutting it.

Anyway this morning I was 219.2. If I can get that down to 218, then I'll finally let myself go on to the two teens thread.

Welcome back Brandi!

Karin Rose - You've come so far, just keep on trucking.

Ruby - Don't worry too much, we all hit plateaus. It won't last forever.

Welcome Tubegeek.

Wanna - Congrats on officially moving on to the next thread!!!!! I'll be there soon!

Today I weighed in at 222.6. That's .8 down from yesterday. Pretty happy with that. I also feel skinnier today. The pants I have on used to be skin tight and actually hurt to button them. Today they are really loose, almost too big actually.

I wanted to share this quote I found on the internet somewhere that I really love:

When you look in the mirror and see no change, and still keep faith, knowing that in time you will get there if you stay focused and on track. That's the difference between those who succeed and those who fail. (I think it should also say no change in the scale too!)

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Thanks Wanna and Wvuchick. So I hopped on the scale 3 days after my "restart" weigh in, and weighed 226.8. I'm only going to update my ticker on here once a week, but I'm using my WW app to log my in-between weigh-ins so maybe I will get a better idea of how my weight fluctuates.

Welcome back, Brandi and welcome to the thread Tubegeek.

You should be proud of yourself, Ruby. You're not letting a little pitstop undo all of your hard work.

wvu, that is a sweet NSV there! Nothing says progress like needing new clothes. Great quote, BTW.

wanna, I'm so thrilled for you! Onederland is right around the corner.

KarinRose, don't be too hard on yourself. Anytime you have that many events packed into a small timeframe ( think Thanksgiving to New Year's ) you're probably going to overindulge at some point.

Me, I'm up 1.5, but I'm not sweatin' it. I know I'm doing the right things, so it'll all shake out in the end.

Thanks everyone for the support. I started back sunday and so far down almost 6 lbs! Amazing when you get back on track how the water pours off.

Wannaskipand laugh- I am so sorry about the loss of your friend. Congrats on moving to the next thread I hope to move there soon myself.

wvu- I think shopping for new clothes when you lose weight is one of the best nsv. Congrats to you!

streudel- You will have that off in no time, drink that lemon water!

karinrose- Overindulging happens but as long as we get back up on the horse so to speak we will get there and be successful.

If I missed anyone I hope you are successful today!
