Sarah, good job on getting some movement in My day was good, thanks for asking.

I made it to the gym burn was 559, doing 4.56 miles on the treadmill. Felt good. I hope the scale will reward me for my extra effort

Good Morning! Sounds like everyone is doing pretty well

I was down 1 lb this morning to 172.75 lbs. Getting closer to the 160's!!!

This morning I'll go walking, then maybe a little bike riding, then back home to do some more packing. I'm making progress.

Happy Wednesday!

Good morning everyone.

Rennie--nice job on the exercise yesterday. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the scale sees your efforts!

Olivia--I'm impressed that you are losing weight while in the midst of a move. Good for you. When is actual moving day?

I decided to only officially weigh in once a week because my scale isn't digital so it's hard to tell small changes. But I am using the daily post to plan and note my exercise. I find that if I can get regular exercise, I do better with eating too. Since I got up early, I think I'll add a walk in this morning.

Sarah - I don't have a digital scale either and my scale weighs in increments of 4 ounces, which is pretty small As far as the move, right now I'm packing up my old place (the rooms I have occupied in my parents home) and I'll be getting on the road in 11 days (including today). I have an eating plan in place for the entire transition so hopefully I can stick to it.

Morning everyone. Slept at mom's house last night. Weighed in on her scale at 194.1 after breakfast. Not holding it as a "true weigh in" because a) I had breakfast and b) different scale.

I think hubby should be done today and we can sleep in our own beds tonight. We'll see tomorrow.

Olivia, you're doing great Keep up the great work Olivia I'm confident you'll stick to plan. If anything you may miss a few meals without thinking because you're so busy. I like packing, have fun

Thanks Sarah it did I do better with eating when I exercise also. I think in my mind I know that I can burn off any additional calories so I don't feel as deprived of what I wanted. Exercise for me = mindful eating

Good morning Kukkie

I am down .8 to 158.4. I am so ready to see 155 then my username 150. I have been at this a long time so I really need to get on the ball.

Hope you all have a great day.

akelly I know you're traveling ... hope all is well

Mary to the thread. Post away, anything you want

Calories today are higher than I wanted but not too bad. Hoping not to have too big of a gain in the morning and still be in the 150's

Good thing I went on that walk today.

Anyway, the App is called MY FITNESS PAL. Now I can check my progress each day. It says at the rate I am going I will loose 5lbs by July 4th. It takes into account my gender, age, weight and height. I made my goal 150 which I feel good at but I have always had to work to maintain it. So it will be a slow and steady loss, but I am ok with that, because I this to be a life changing way of eating and exercising. I want to be healthy more than I want to be skinny. (if that makes sense)
Mary which hummus do you eat? I eat Sabre red pepper hummus and there aren't a lot of calories in it. I use myfitnesspal also to track calories, carbs, protein and sodium. On there I am love2b136 ... the barcode scanner is great when you are in a hurry and for getting the correct counts on recipes

Olivia--sounds like you are in a good place with the whole weight loss thing...I'm impressed you have such a good plan. Sounds to me like you have a good chance to stick to it. Half the battle is having the plan! Good luck with the move. I hope the reason for the move is something fantastic.
Mary and Rennie--I make my own hummus. It's really easy, and I use almost all water instead of olive oil to thin it. I've never figured out the calories, but it has to be less than store bought.

See you all in the morning.

Thanks, Rennie & Sarah! Yes, planning helps me tremendously. I'm moving so my kids can be closer to their father who is in the NAVY and stationed in Virginia. They miss him a lot. I am sure this move will lead to something fantastic! I'm just going with the ebb and flow of life

Today I was up 0.25 lb to 173.00. What's funny is, my waist measurement and hips were a tad bit smaller this morning lol. My size 12's are a bit loose in the waist. I'm loving it! I'm going to see what I can push out at the gym today as far as jogging mileage. I'd like to get in at least 2 miles of jogging. We'll see!

Olivia Since you've had such an amazing weight loss, I'm sure you know that weight fluctuates a bunch. I'm sure that quarter pound will disappear quickly. And way to go on the loose size 12s! The confidence you get from that will help make your transition to your new life even better. Here's to great things!

I am going to take a long walk with a friend today and I'm really looking forward to it. Good exercise and free therapy! I've been eating well and can already tell that when I have my weekly weigh in next week that the scale will be my friend. I'm so glad I found this message board forum!

Thanks so much, Sarah! Yes, I have absolutely no worries about any fluctuations...no worries about much of anything anymore these days and I'm loving that Enjoy your free therapy and I'm sure the scale will give you a nice gift once you step on it again!

I just finished lunch and I feel so awesome! I prepared a raw organic salad (green leaf lettuce, grape tomatoes, carrots, onions, cucumbers, olives, avocado, mushrooms & fresh jalapeno pepper) and whipped up a fresh dressing (olive oil, apple cider vinegar, raw honey, fresh garlic, fresh lemon juice, dijon mustard, yellow mustard, sriracha sauce, worcestershire sauce, sea salt & black pepper). I licked the plate when I was done lol. My body is very happy right now

I jogged 2.5 miles today and feeling good!! Dinner will be a vegetable stir fry.

Have a great afternoon!!

did my first couch to 5K can you say? OUT OF SHAPE! I did it though. going to go die now.
My poor little doggie! she did it with me. she is already sleeping. On a funnier note, my undies and workout pants kept riding down my roll of a tummy. hee hee. It's sad I know, but still it gave me a chuckle. if you can't laugh you'd cry.

Oh and Rennie, I don't know what kind it was, I already threw it out. We were all talking about it at work last night. I did make some delicious spicy black bean dip that I ate with cucumbers, yumskers and only 74 calories for 1/4 cup. Don't think I ate that much but on that app it said for homemade that was the amount.
