Salad done. My kids are driving me nuts so I'm in a different room trying not to partake in the whine. My youngest is balking at the French toast dad made him. He wants pancakes.

Ubee: cheese! I go to woodmans always to stock up but it never lasts long as I swear my DH has a perpetual feed from the fridge. Of late I tend to do mainly string cheese due to the calorie factor. Oh but we have some nice ones of all types don't we?!

I went to goodwill today but it seems that the 18s are over picked and I hope not to be in the 18s for a long time short and pant wise. I see ladies asking if at what size corresponds with weight. Sadly when I was 150 I was still a 12. I read some of these ladies are a 4/6 or 8 at that weight. I have never been. I got to girls 14 and I swear over the summer I went right into a 11/12. And I'd like to be getting shorts for the winter trip now but no dice unless I wanted well worn.

Ok I best to deal with the avoidance.

My scale is stuck at 241.6. Got to love it when it doesn't move. So instead I went and moved for my whole 16 mins. I watch these people that have always moved and keep weight off and wonder why I wasn't programmed to find enjoyment in exercise. I never have. It was and is something I know I need to do. At the same time my sister states she does it for the endorphins. Nope - I can't say I've ever had a rush after exercise.

So I will try and eat to my calories and hope the scale moves a bit tomorrow. I need to find how to mix up my fresh veggies. I currently have a lot of zukes to use up before we go on a long weekend trip.

So happy day to you all. I'll keep trying to get all this down to 239. May your scales look good.

Morning all!

Slowly starting to feel better. Second day of relying on my own wits to ensure I'm eating balanced. I am happy to note that I lost .6 overnight. I leave for my work trip on Thursday, so I have to stop myself from buying things until I come back. I'm actually looking forward to exploring more food options when I travel.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Onward and downward!

Sorry I wasn't around to be of some support this weekend, we ended up not being able to get any service up at the beach house!

I'll catch up on the posts a bit later, hope you're weekends were nice!

Ubee: Looks good - though I don't have half the items called for. ut maybe I will make a variation of.

Laura: Safe travels - enjoy the local food scene! I hope you are going somewhere totally new to you.

FDDM: Well, I'd rather a beachhouse not have wifi - you are there to enjoy the sun, surf and family. Thats what is to be expected! The last time I was to a beach house was in 2012. I miss something like that.

AM: Well, now over my pout about the scale not moving, I am doing better. I'm munching away on breakfast finally, I have laundry in, have bills to start paying and apples to get in the dehydrator. I just hope the wasps and bees stay out of my house. In the past when I core and peel apples the scent must be strong enough to draw those buggers on in. Nothings worse then having 6 yellowjackets chasing you around your kitchen.

I do hope those 230s are closer tomorrow. I don't know if I should short my calories more or not to help that budge. The moving tends to help but I am on that every other day schedule. Not that 16 mins is that big of a help - but you get my picture.

Off to do battle!

Ubee: you'll have to let me know on the spiralizer. I chunked up the zuke we had last night and my little one kept sneaking pieces before I threw it in the pan to warm up. I had to laugh because it's not one he's gravitated toward in the past though he likes fruit and veg in general I've never had an issue introducing. Funny thing is he hates pasta. I haven't figured out why.

Hello all!

AM: I hopped on the scale today and came in at 239.4! But I'm hoping it's not short lived as we are traveling w family this weeeknd throughout the Midwest and though you may try to eat well sometimes it comes back to sit on you. So here's to being happy about 239. Even if come next week I go up a pound I'll be ok w/that. I'll try to load road snacks with almonds and string cheese, fruit and my meals I'll try to do my best w/ counting my calories since it will be eat out meals each day.

I don't know if I'll be on here too much but will definitely return come Monday. Thank you for cheering me on I hope, the 30s aren't too hard to shove through. They were last year and that's where I fell off my journey. So I do hope to keep this all up and I'll turn here for encouragement and help. I find that helps me out immensely.

LemonThyme! Congrats on hitting the next decade!! You still have a couple days to 'lose' before the weekend, right? Try to front-fill some loss so that the inevitable weekend gain isn't too bad.

We hit the road tomorrow and I'm a little nervous. I've been tracking my food on MFP all week and so far have either lost or maintained. I'm a bit of a control freak so not knowing the nutritional content of my foods is going to be a challenge. I'll focus on low-carb where I can and try to keep my fats in check (rarely does catered or restaurant food have healthy fats). My office is bringing in food for all the weekend shifts but it's far from gourmet (more like pizza, fried chicken etc). I'm going to be on my own for some meals and the hotel restaurant is quite nice. The chef has a garden out back from which he gets his fresh greens and vegetables. I have set aside some time on Friday morning to enjoy the hotel pool and get some exercise in. I've not exercised since last Tuesday and am feeling almost ready to resume. I am working the evening shift on Friday and the day shift on Sunday so my off time is limited.

Husband and I are going out for dinner tonight since we'll be apart for so long. When I get back from Charlotte, he leaves the next day for a few days there, so we'll be like ships in the night.

Happy Hump day all!! Keep up the good work!!!

Laura I know you are taking a break from Medifast but maybe you want to take a few emergency foods along in case you get in a pickle? If you don't need it great. If you do need it you have it. Have a nice meal out with hubby and I wish you both safe travels.

lemomthyme! on getting into the 230's! I agree with Laura you have a few days to get down before the weekend. Is there any mental trick you can do to help you stay on plan better over the weekend? I like to visualize a number a few down from where I am on the scale. I will let you know about the spiralizer. Did you try the soda experiment yet?

Hi FatDoesn'tDefineMe. How are you doing?

Kim get back here. Now is not the time to disappear.

Laura: safe travels! good luck too with your on the road diet. It can be hard that's for certain. We had the other night a quick stop at mcdonald's, and I tossed the bun. My DH thought I was being crazy and overdramatic. I said, the darn bun is 150 calories. I will take a bite of it, but then just eat the burger. Because it was the only place we could stop at the time and the kids were hungry. Alas - you find what works for you and get on with it.

FDDM: How goes your weight loss? I know you had your weekend away and that can be hard so I hope your scale has been nice to you thus far this week.

Ubee: How did the spiralizer work? I will popping over to the 230 thread AGAIN - with hopes I can leave those 20 lbs and keep on moving. Keep good thoughts for my food fight this weekend. I will try my darnedest to keep the food at bay.

Best wishes all for a good week and fun weekend ahead.

Good morning everyone! Let's make this a great day and weekend!

lemonthyme I love the grilled southwest salad at McDonald's. I don't add any dressing to it I just squeeze that lime and mix it up. If I am taking it home I add salsa and sour cream. The bun not only adds calories but for me it adds water weight and cravings for sweets.

Ubee: thanks on the reminder about salads at mcds. I always forget about them. We traveled last night to my moms also in state however while the rest of the family ate fast food I brought my big bowl of salad. Sure I looked funny in sure but I did try to do well.

Hello all!

AM: I'll keep posting here for a while until I feel confident in my 230s and I'll cheer you on FDDM and whomever else is still here. Right now I'm still waking up.

I looked in the mirror last night as I was readying for bed. And here I noticed that my collar bone is emerging ever so little but a little bit more than in the past few months. I will count this as a nice surprise NSV.

Happy weekend to you all. Now I'm off for breakfast, buying a new toilet and travel. May you all be sporting good scales!

Hi Ladies! Work has been super busy, but I wanted to quickly check in!

Lemonthyme 230s!!! Yay! That is super exciting!

I have a spiralizer and love it! Zoodles are a staple in my house.

I'm down two pounds, so still hovering in the low 240s. I'm going to meet you in the 230s soon enough!

FDDM: good for dropping down further! You'll get there soon. Where does one find a spiralizer? Hey this mom can have a few new things too.

Ubee: how does your scale look today?

Laura: hope travel diet is going as best it can!

AM: I got up early and made a salad and egg for today. I've got fresh fruit and nuts for the long car ride. Hopefully these simpler things will help as we travel 9 hours. I haven't researched out the rest of the meals because it's a quasi family reunion we are doing so I don't know if there will be more gathering or not. But at least I can start off my trip right.

i haven't been on a scale now for 2 days. That's can be detrimental to me in the past. But I'm logging all I eat. Yesterday was above but aim to do better today and the rest of this trip.

My best to you all. Here's to good eating habits and downward scales.
