Olivia and Rennie - rock on ladies!!!! I'm so proud of you both

Can't say the same for myself. I seem to be going in the opposite direction. Up to 194.2 today. Peanut has had a couple of rough nights though, which means a very tired momma has had a couple of rough nights also. I am going to live and breathe my coffee today

Thanks Olivia and Kukkie

Kukkie lack of sleep will do it every time It has certainly held true for me. How many teeth does he have already? Hopefully you won't have much longer with teeth coming in

Rennie we'll be at it a while yet. He's only got six right now, working on the 7th and 8th, one of which is a molar. He didn't get his first teeth until he was 10 months, then got 4 in a row, waited about a month, got another two, and then nothing for almost 4 months. Now we're at it again.

Kukkie, I can't wait until he is done teething. I know it's hard on you and him

katerina, good job on your drop

No wizard I will have a stall/plateau soon I'm sure. It happens on these journeys. I use to have them all the time. I'd literally be stuck weeks. I have read every thread that interest me and followed some people's journeys on 3FC and asked questions and found a few things that interest me. So what is working for me is a mixture Intermittent Fasting, Johnson Up Day Down Day, Slow Carb-4 hour body, cutting out bread (I do have my gobble every now and then) no pasta except Shirataki zero pasta, and no rice. I am trying to get the potatoes out of my system but so far they are not causing any major issues when I eat a spoon of mashed potatoes or 10 home cooked fries with ketchup. I get all of my water in which is half of my body weight. And instead of killing myself trying to burn a ton of calories the last few days I have only done 250 calorie burns and it is working (actually yesterday because I knew my son was gonna make fried chicken (lightly battered) I burned 300. I hope I can continue this before I get comfortable like I've done in the past. My incentive this time is I found a picture on a usb drive of me at what I thought was 165, I was still big. When I looked up my weight for that date I actually weighed 172 I think. So not pretty and I still have the same stomach roll that I had then, so I have a long way to go. Thanks for listening

Happy May Day!

Ugh so I ended April falling off my wagon. But, I'm back on board today and looking to have a fun filled weekend with working out and losing more weight! I can't weigh until tonight when I get home so will update my May 1 stat later. I know I kept a loss for April, so May will be all about losing even more. Have a trip to London in June, so I am really excited to hopefully lose 10-15 pounds!

Rennie, way to go!!!!! Congrats on the new decade girl! That's awesome!

Kukkie, sending all the luck and peace to you during teething! I know that's tough! I am about to walk into the kitchen here at the clients office and make my third cup of coffee. It's been a long morning already!

katerina, congrats on the drop!!

Olivia, congrats on your drop too!! A drop is a drop is a drop! I know how happy it makes us when we see drops we aren't expecting!

Heidi, welcome!! I'm going to London just for a week in June so I know you're excited! I spent 3 months in Europe in college studying in France, it's such an amazing adventure and experience!

Angie, so glad to see a familiar face Welcome back!

I just posted on another thread about how I'm a firm believer in adequate sleep being beneficial for weight loss. I went to bed early last night to make sure I got extra sleep lol

Rennie - I'm an intermittent faster as well. I actually love it. I started doing this last year for weight loss and the pounds were flying off. Once I started back on my weight loss journey this year, I incorporated intermittent fasting again and same thing.....weight just melts off (for me). I also think that constantly switching things up really helps and I agree with limiting the breads/starches. I even limit my meat now to 3 times per week which I'm finding is plenty for my body. After years and years of trying to figure out what works for me, I think I'm settling into "balance" lol. A balance of everything...exercise, food, etc.

Thanks akelly Hope the scale shows you a great starting number and I hope you are home for a while. I'm gonna come to Georgia and get in your suitcase I want to go to London ... ha I want to anywhere I'm not picky. My husbands family's reunion is in your neck of the state in 2015. If we get to go maybe you'll be in town and we could meet (that's if we get to go) I need a job

Me too Olivia ... I'm trying to make sure what ever I do and where ever I end I can live with it. I hear maintenance is hard and I don't want to worry about it when I get there so I want to be prepared

calluna to the thread . Great job on your weight loss so far on finding the threads you've posted on - All you have to do is go to the bottom and subscribe to your threads. Or quick links and you will see the threads you've posted by clicking subscribed threads. I'm on my phone so it's not easy doing anything on this small device. But try those two things and let me know if they work
