Uggg Halloween chocolate is a devil indeed eh. Thankfully everywhere close sold out so I avoided the dreaded "well its SOOO cheap I better buy it ALL" season this year.

Mara - you can do it!! I hope you have a good week and see loses too.

goldengirl - thats awesome that you can put a positive spin on having more time to kick butt. I'm not well-versed in things that help fertility but a great attitude sure can't hurt.

I feel so much less "stressed" being back on WW. I really hate that term but I found counting I was over-obsessing over every tiny thing, meeting my macros and always feeling guilty thus giving up. I just can't work with a constant state of food guilt. I've got enough things to worry about in my life, getting healthy should make me feel BETTER.

Anyhow, having now reprieved myself mostly from my previous weeks indulgences, I looked at my numbers. In order to make my goal, I just need 1.3lbs/week. Which is totally doable. So yay Lastly ETA a NSV: I can finally feel/also see the acromial end of my collarbones for the first time ever.

skittlesfirehawk:

you can do it! what kind of tattoo did you get? I want to get one once I hit goal.
Riestrella:
Thanks for the advice I think I probably am too traditional to say it first, so I guess I will wait it out a little bit. I'm super excited about Christmas! It's one of my favorite holidays. I read about your Japanese experience with Christmas, and it had be laughing (especially those costumes, yikes!).

dehtripper: Yes, 1.3 a week is totally doable and I'm happy that you are less stressed now that you're back on WW My office still has Halloween candy out! It's so tempting to see it here

I saw 137 on the scale (woot woot). I still haven't been able to go back to exercising because of my back, but I'm feeling a lot better and I'm mostly pain free. I plan on taking some Yoga classes next week and hopefully that just helps me in strengthening my back.

I'm super excited that we are nearing the end of the week because I actually have ALL of next week off of work. How's everyone feeling? Any Hunger Game fans? I am really looking forward to the movie this weekend.

Mara - yay! glad its cooperating

kisskiss - sorry about your back. Yay Hunger games! I was aiming on reading the book before seeing the movie this time, but alas time has escaped me. PS: you are soooo close to goal and that is AWESOME

skittles - glad you're happy with your new tattoo. I'm finally only a few sessions away from finishing my current project…but it kinda drives me crazy that I can't skate for a few days after getting work done.

grapefruit - sorry that the challenge isn't working for you right now. hope the best for you regardless!

Do you mean the spreadsheet or the chat thread? Because there are plenty of people who just use the spreadsheet and don't use the thread to chat. I'll keep your information on the spreadsheet in case you want to keep accountable.

good morning

after my mandatory wisdom-teeth-exercise break, I'm finally back at it this week I run mega slow and take little weights for ripped/shred, but it's okay will get better soon
I'm a little upset because I've been eating and exercising right this week, and the scale didn't move.
But okay! maybe next time

have a great week everyone

Well hello everybody!

So I signed up for the spreadsheet, was all geared up for the challenge, ready to post an update since I had been MIA for several months, and start losing the lb's with you guys again and BAM - car accident :|. I'm ok now, but I ended up with some head trauma that took several weeks to recover from. Which of course, resulted in weight gain (uggggh). Jumping back on the wagon ASAP and going to start reading through the thread now to see how everyone is doing.

Hope all is well with you ladies!

Hey Ladies! I have been so horribly behind this week. First TOM struck on Tuesday Then our anniversary on Wednesday then today was my birthday and it has been junk food and no exercise! As fun as it has been I'm sure it's caught up with me. I haven't weighed yet, will Monday at the gym but it's not going to be pretty. However it's been fun and I need to get back to being serious. Like I had said...TOM just means another month of getting healthy before God decided my husband and I are ready to start a family.
DH got me this great Tshirt for my birthday but it is way tight...I'm a little sad...but more than anything I saw it as???oh yeah! this is my new goal shirt...to add, I was going to buy these super cute boots, that are calf length, but surprise, they'd not fit over my calfs. I wasn't upset, I just said oh well, too bad, and moved on. I know I'm fat, I'm working on it, and that's all I can do. But I'll let it serve as motivation.

S/C/G: Losing for cooling.

So after not being hungry much AT ALL last week, this week I am definitely hungry. I tend to freak out when I get hungry, thinking it's going to lead to overeating. Which makes me try to be very careful with my food, which leaves me hungrier and more stressed, which actually contributes to me overeating. A bad, horrible, no good cycle.

So I'm trying to feed myself promptly so I don't panic that I'll starve (which is so irrational because it's not like I don't have food around) and then overeat to 'save' myself. But I'm also trying to balance HOW MUCH to eat to fill myself up. I'm often not great at sensing hunger/full cues.

I'm also still trying out not calorie counting, so eating more when I'm hungrier is nerve wracking. It's working so far, but like I said, I haven't been all that hungry yet. We'll see how it goes.

---

dehtripper: I absolutely LOVED that NSV when I had it! Aren't collar bones so exciting? You just can't stop touching them (at least I couldn't)!

kisskiss: Congrats on 137! The 30s sound so awesome (mostly because the last time I was there I was like 13 years old).

ParkTrot: Sorry to hear about your accident. I'm glad you're okay!

I have decided to step down from this challenge for the time being. I will still be running this challenge and compiling the charts and contributing to the chat, but I will no longer be weighing myself. I made a detailed reason on my blog, but essentially I have become emotionally affected by the number on the scale and it has to stop. So until I feel ready, which is probably when I've had at least a month of being on plan (fitness and nutrition wise) I won't be stepping on the scales. Keep it up everyone, you're doing awesome!
