Hope you have a great trip Olivia! Can't wait to hear how the wedding goes.

Rennie that pic of you is awesome! I'm so happy for you.

I didn't weigh in this morning. Peanut slept better than he has in weeks. Was still up at 4am, had himself a little solo concert, and then back to sleep by 5 until 6:45. In the process, I think I slept in, and by the time I remembered to weigh in, I was already dressed, so I didn't bother. We'll see what the scale says tomorrow I suppose.

ok i need you guys. my meet is over, i'm happy i did it, it was fun, i broke a US record for NASA (woot!) but now i am back to the grind and my goal is to get to 198 by november and i need help. i am a certified food addict.

i ate and ate right before the meet and it's hard to come back down from that. i shouldn't whine, but man this is so much harder than just throwing some weights around at the gym. i have to be on my game 24/7.

this week, every day i have weighed between 228.4 and 229.8. super high for me.

i tried really hard to eat well today and i almost made it. big salads, fruits, veggies, lean proteins, enough good fats and then my kids want sonic and i take them and of course my toddler doesn't finish his shake (when did a small get so big???) so i had half of his shake.

it's that kind of thing that i need to get used to NOT doing. get used to just throwing it away. i used to do that all the time. kids not eating it? oack it up for later or toss it. end of story.

anyways... today
15. 228.8 - 2,227 calories - 194 carbs 81 fats 210 protein - rest day.

I'm at 194.9 today. Down from previous weigh in, but still up from last week. I'm also tired. Not sure why, sleep hasn't been horrible, taking my iron and thyroid meds. Maybe I should get tested again... It's been a while.

Thank goodness it's a long weekend here. Although, we have a wedding reception to attend tonight.

katerina I am happy for you glad to see you are reigning it in, the scale is coming down nicely.

Kukkie, I've been tired here lately also ... and this over eating of junk isn't helping ... sigh

this is me right now ---> ok I need you guys. ... I need help. I am a certified food addict.

Today I ate 3090 calories. My calorie intake is supposed to be 1338 according to MFP. I doubled that plus 414 calories more.

Gonna try to eat properly tomorrow

Good Morning, ladies!

Sorry I haven't caught up on the thread, I just wanted to post that I'm back from the wedding and it was an AWESOME time!! The actual wedding was on Saturday and I did EXTREMELY well with my eating on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday? Well, it wasn't bad. I just took a lot of bites and sips of things lol (champagne, wine, cake, chocolates, etc). No guilt whatsoever because I had the most fabulous time!! On yesterday, I ate out with family/friends for most of my meals as everyone wanted final gatherings before we all departed back to our home towns. I haven't weighed since Thursday and I'm going to hold off weighing until next Monday because I already know I'm holding on to water weight. I'm going to sleep most of the day, eat a burger (probably with an egg on it lol) and get back on track with diet and exercise tomorrow! I can't wait!! I still have plenty weight to lose!

Olivia glad you had an enjoyable weekend ... did you get a pic to share with us? I like your plan to wait until Monday to weigh in, glad to see you back.

I have a plan today and so far it is working but I am only one meal in. I have had probably four really really high calorie days, two I know for sure but the other two I didn't keep track so to me that says a lot. I have been trying to do the 5:2 up/down day meal plan and so far I have failed miserably. I started out the month weighing 159.8 and have twice weighed in at almost 10lbs higher ... 5/13 ~ 168.0 and today ~ 167.8. ok end of confession ...

Oh wow...last post was Tuesday. Man, last week drug on and flew by at the same time, if that makes sense. Work was slow but personal life crap was tough. Tuesday was the anniversary of my dad's passing and also all that personal drama I spoke about a few weeks ago came to a close (kinda amicably just closing the door on the relationship which is tough since this person was close to me and my bf). Anyways...trying to move forward and not let that hinder me! The relationship was just at a tough place - 500 miles between us physically and so much going on in life that it was hard to keep that relationship in the mix. I did feel at times it was so taxing on me that I lost focus of a lot of my goals (weight loss, work, bf, etc) so it's probably best to just return to focusing on me and getting myself healthy.

As for my week, it went great! Lost 3.6 pounds which is good with me considering all the weekend events. Had 2 graduations, a wedding, and a belated mothers day dinner for my bf's mom. Ran 5 miles between Sat and Sun and ran all 3 nights while traveling last week, so major wins in the working out area

Olivia, glad your back safely!! And really glad you had a great time!! You deserved it

Kukkie, hope you got to enjoy your long weekend! I am sooo exhausted too and I'm not sure why!

Rennie, confessions are a good starting point You will get back on track I'm sure of it! Your fluctuations are a lot like mine - can lose 4 pounds overnight after a good workout, then eat a carb and gain 20. LOL. But, in the bigger pictures (which I know we all don't take enough time out to look at)...you're in the 160's... think back to when you were in the 200's, 220's. You would kill to be where you are today. Yes, you need to keep going and kick ***, but sometimes when the scale isn't playing nicely, step back and think about the beginning - look how far you have come and how much you have learned and lost thus far! It's truly amazing and you have to give yourself that credit from time to time!

Hope Monday ends sooner rather than later for all of us....

akelly sorry about the drama, and hugs to you with regards to your Dad You have a ton of NSV's plus the actual SV to be proud of. I am so very happy for you. With regards to me ... I think that's what scares me is the fact that I have come down some, yet I still have so far to go and I just keep messing up. I know how easy it is to go back to where I was and that is frightening. I have restarted this journey too many times and I would like to end it in 2014 or at least by the end of the year. My blood sugar has rocketed thanks to this mess (my fault) and the better I do in the morning the worse I do in the evening. However, today has been a good day and I think I'm gonna leave early to pick my son up from football practice so I can walk for about 30 minutes. I'm sure that will help since I can't go to the gym.

OMGoodness, I just fixed my ticker how maddening it is to know that I was 4lbs away from 155 on 5/8-5/10 and now I have 12lbs to lose, smh

Good morning everyone!~

With the long weekend and all, it's technically Monday for me here

I weighed in at 195.1. Could have been worse. We did a lot of eating Friday-Sunday. Yesterday was better, and we went for a really really long walk. Today should be even better, I have packed everything under the sun for my snacks and lunch, all on plan stuff. I keep complaining that the scale isn't moving, but the reality is I'm not doing my part to make it move. I keep sneaking in bites here and there of stuff, as if it isn't going to affect me, but all together, it makes such an impact. Well, here's to another first day!

Fell off the wagon last night and ordered a sub from jimmy johns. Felt sick today I guess because it was way too much too late. Also had some dizzy spells all afternoon. Still got out to the trail tonight and ran 1 mile in 15 mins (good for me, didn't push myself too hard since I felt dizzy and sick). Of course I wanted to do at least 2 miles but the last thing I needed was to get sick and start puking in front of all these people and being at least a mile from my car. I did sweat quite a bit and felt proud for even doing something. The old me would have written off the workout by 3pm and ordered pizza and desserts for dinner.

Kukkie, hope your Monday was gentle Good for you for being honest to yourself. Your bump up on the scale wasn't too bad so I know if you keep up the focus, you will get down in no time. Weekends can be so fun and such a whirlwind and then we get on here on Monday and have to face the music with confessing lol. At least we understand each other. I find myself nodding my head and laughing a little bit because most of the stories are the same stories I have myself.

Rennie, I completely understand. I was so worried about gaining my weight back. And then over the course of 2 years I gained most of it back. It all started with 1 slip. Then a week of slips. Then excuses galore and refusing to acknowledge I had gained 20 pounds. And then bam, 50 pounds gained back. And the last year has been spent just wallowing in self pity and losing the same 10 pounds over and over. So this past month I have really finally started progressing along a new journey. With new lessons and new goals and a new mindset. So I am inspired by you for being so good at catching yourself and refusing to creep up every week.

Good Morning, Everyone!

I wasn't going to get on the scale until next Monday but I wanted to see what the 3 day damage was lol. I'm up 5 lbs to 187.75. I'm not going to change my ticker because I believe it's mostly water weight and will be gone by next Monday.

I jogged 4 miles without stopping yesterday because I had SO much energy from all that food I ate over the course of those 3 days. I could have kept going too but my time on the treadmill was running out lol.

Hope everyone has a great day!
