I'm back! How's everyone been?

Yosemite was ok. Probably hiked about 15-17miles last thursday. Went hiking again yesterday with the bf. Sadly didn't see any moonbows, even after hiking at 10:30 at night to the base of yosemite falls. Oh well. Something really exciting though is when I got back I just felt smaller, ya know? So I measured myself and to my joy I've lost more inches! I'm super close to my goal measurements actually so its really exciting. Taking a break from the scale has been really good for me mentally and losing inches is real progress so I know I'm doing something right

Oh and totally had another NSV! I went shopping and tried on a bunch of mediums and most of them were too big! Including a size 6! I know its just vanity sizing, but still made me happy lol

Hi everyone, so yesterday I weighed in at 149.8. I've never been in the 140's as an adult before! It's so awesome.

However, I ate a bunch of things I shouldn't have because I was so excited and felt like I deserved a treat. The hard part is that I'm moving this week, it's my boyfriend's birthday tomorrow, and 3 day work week. I'm in vacation mode.

Need to stay on plan!!

glitterhairdye congrats!

caitycait88 great job! i cant wait to get into the 40s myself! Don't beat yourself up too much about going off plan, we all deserve a break every now and again

I've been feeling like my eating choices have been good lately. Didn't get to hike today bc of the rain. Did my ab and squat challenge and am on the stationary bike now. Wow its been so long since i did the bike, i can really feel it! lol

Hope everyone had an awesome memorial day weekend

Dottington sounds like you're kicking some butt! Great job and keep going!

Thanks for the support too, I'm giving myself a little leeway this week and have to remember this is a journey with ups and downs and as long as the trend is down and my mission is not derailed then I have nothing to worry about!

glitterhairdye congrats and welcome!
dottington keep up the good work!
caitycait88 leeway is so important to sanity and success

Been on track and working out, even skipped my dads amazing bbq ribs this past weekend. Im trying to transition to a more plant based diet, eventually would like to be vegan.Red meat and pork were the easiest things to eliminate. Hit 151.6 , the least Ive weighed in a good year and half so happy about that ;-).

skinnyelle great job on staying on plan and getting to 151!

Just feel a little gross today. Last night had 3 tiny slices of veggie pizza, but I really wish I hadn't :/ I tried to plan the day out well, but I just felt bloated and today I still feel bloated so I'm going to make sure to eat extra clean.

Eating today and yesterday was good! Been doing the bike still instead of hiking. Going hiking tomorrow morning though

I'm starting to go a little crazy without my scale. Like my measurements went down, I've been on plan, aside from a few days here and there where I eat at maintenance, but I'm paranoid I'm gaining weight. Its not based in logic at all and its making me really anxious I almost went to Target today JUST to weigh myself on one of the scales for sale!

Has anyone else experienced this?? When I look in the mirror I swear I'm bigger, but I know logically that's not true. It's been about two weeks now without my scale and I still have another two weeks till I get it back. Gosh, I was so happy without it but now I'm freaking out not knowing

dottington, the mind can play tricks on people....trust me I know. It can be upsetting but don't let it get to you because you know it is not true.

I'm down to 149.4 pounds today. Woohoo. Feels like a great weigh in for June 1st. I already did my run for the day at the track and met a cute guy there. It is soo beautiful out. I'm about to shower, change into these really cute white demin shorts and a tank top, go pick up my vegetables, fruits and other items and then go to the state park to take a leisure walk with my sister. Today is a good day

Yikes Dottington! Id be going nuts without my scale! Are you taking a break by choice? I weigh myself daily and I know that's not healthy either but I could never take that long of a break If your staying on plan I wouldn't worry too much. When I look in the mirror some days I think I look bigger (even if the weight is lower, I LOOK bigger to me, naked, in the mirror), some days I'm happy with the progress. Good luck making it through 2 more weeks!\

Sounds like an amazing day energie!

I weighed in at 148 this morning! Lowest so far, and finally gone from my 2 week plateau! I joined Planet Fitness last week and have used it 5 times since then! I even got a personalized workout routine from the fitness instructor, which I'm super excited about! I tried working out at night a few times and I know now that if I'm gonna do this, it's going to have to be at 5am. Otherwise I won't be done till 7:30 and I still have to eat dinner, before going to bed at like 9 or 9:30...it's just too rushed and my adrenaline doesn't let me sleep. I HAVE to go at night at least one more time because I need help with some parts of my workout and the fitness trainer isn't there that early. Ah well, I thought I would HATE working out, but I actualy love it. Its hard, but it gives me an adrenaline high, and I feel amazing afterword (and why would I want to waste that amazing feeling on going to bed 2 hours later?)

I just got home from the gym, and now I'm enjoying my DELICIOUS healthy lunch, big mac in a bowl!

energie what an awesome day!

andi24 Good job on getting down more and for getting in all that gym work! I too like working out in the morning much better, I hate the few days when I can't and have to work out in the evening.

Thanks guys for the support about the scale stuff. It's partly self imposed and partly an intervention thing from my bf and bff I'm feeling much better about it today. Especially bc yesterday I took an update photo for making it half way through my ab challenge and was so surprised at how I can really see a difference in my stomach

Yesterday went on a pretty killer hike plus did my ab and squat challenge, feeling pretty sore today Planning on a hike or walk later and more squat and ab challenge work

size8 Thanks! Hope you're doing well too

So had a really active weekend. Made good choices eating wise. Friday went hiking for 2 hours plus ab and squats, Sat went hiking for 45min plus ab and squats. Sunday and Monday I visited a friend who lives at the beach and did a ton of walking. Today its back to ab and squats plus I'm planning on doing the bike tonight

Hey! Where's everybody at!?

So I've lost a bit more inches. I've really lost my appetite the past few days. I think its because I'm kind of stressed with relationship stuff right now :/ I've noticed whenever I start to become unhappy in a relationship, I start to lose weight. Same thing when I first enter a relationship.

But yesterday I made a HUGE mistake. I was at my boyfriend's house and needed to use the restroom. He knows about my whole scale obsession and I've talked to him a lot about how hard its been for me to be away from my scale. Well in the restroom was a super old slightly broken looking scale....and I couldn't resist.....

I weighed myself And it was the middle of the day, and I was wearing 5in heels, and a huge chunky necklace, and I'd eaten and drank lots of water, and I'd done a killer strength workout the day before....and the scaled weighed 2lbs MORE then when I gave it up two weeks ago. It really messed with my head. I really wish I hadn't weighed myself. Now I feel like failure. Sigh.
