Congrats on the 140. I haven't seen any loss. I'm discouraged and back to old bad habits. Fighting with the bf and stress fro work is just adding to everything. I wish I had better coping skills.

Isn't it a shame that Ben and Jerry are there for us all the time. I feel like at our height, the 140s just seem to be a place the body likes. A month with nothing moving then the scale slides down. Keep it up. I am worried about relaxing too much or not enough with the diet while on vacation.

One of my problems is I take on too much and eventually something's gotta give and that's definitely my eating. I agree for our height the 140's aren't bad and I'm sure we look great. I just have an ideal weight and size I'm struggling to get to. For most my life I was stick thin and ate anything I wanted. I'm paying for that now.

Try not to worry too much about vacation and just enjoy urself. I have a feeling it won't be as bad as you think. I have always found vacation gave me the extra time to exercise. So maybe snack a little more and get moving a little more at their gym or a fun activity excursion. I climbed the waterfalls in Jamacia twice and loved it. I'm sure your cruise will have a lot of the same regardless where you travel.

I'm dipping my toe into this thread since I'm finally in the 140's and about to turn *gasp* thirty!
I'm sure none of you want to hear how freaked out I am about turning 30 or the fact that I'm already married with an 8 year old and an 8 month old and my youth is so long far BEhind me! Haha. I really love my life, but a birthday can bring up all those feelings.
My goal is 125 by 30, my birthday being September 17th. My mom is turning 50 this year as well, and to celebrate (and cope!) with our birthdays, we are going to run a 5k together in the fall. I am also planning a trip to Miami where my mom lives for a weekend in late September to just bond and relax for the first time since having my second daughter.

I had a very complicated pregnancy and was on bed rest for several months. I am losing babyweight (142 pre preg weight) and then hoping to lose another 17 to reach my dream weight. We'll see if my body wants to be skinny as much as I do. Haha.

Have a great day, ladies!

I'd love to see 140.8 on the scale. I can't seem to get under 146 and every time I see it the next day I'm back up. I was doing so well (exercising and eating right), then I hit my time of the month with chocolate and salt cravings, followed by crying and sleeping. We also got a heat wave in Jersey so I haven't made it to the gym in a week either.

I'm having a hard time too studying for my CPA and dealing with a lost pregnancy. I'd be having my first child at the beginning of August. However, I guess it wasn't meant to be. Yesterday, an email went out for a surprise baby shower for a woman in my office. I was angry cause timing wise the shower would of been for me also. Some days I'm ok with it and others just devastated that I'm not going to be a mom.

As for turning 30, I had a difficult time with that also. Once you get pass your 31st birthday, its easier and you don't really think about your age anymore (well for me at least). I kind of just stopped counting.

We are a world obsessed with numbers... the ones on the scale, amount of calories we consume, the size of our pants, dollars in our pay checks, digits on our birthday cards, scores on CPA exams, and minutes till its 5 oclock. TGIF!

I'm posting again. Not even sure if anyone is out there. I had more disappointing news again today. Found out the job I applied for is going to another girl in the office (ironically named Jamie also). Apparently, I'm a wonderful employee and did all the hard work last year that the person in the position failed to do, but she has her CPA and alas I do not. I'm a ball of emotions, mostly aggravation and disappointment. I am proud of myself though, instead of heading off to Crumbs for a cup cake or Ben and Jerry's for ice cream, I went to the gym and got in a good work out. I think that really helped clear my head. When I got back up, I ate my left overs from last night. The women were complimenting me on my healthy eating and weight lose. That was a nice feeling. I need to focus on the positive and get away from this negative. It will only cause me more aggravation and heart ache.

My boyfriend and I are on a three month plan of eating healthy and working out. We set up some do's and don'ts to stick by so we can be beach ready come November for a trip to FL. I have that to look forward to.

Oh Jamie, sad to hear about the job. Glad to see you know your worth. I am headed to FL in November as well. I am thinking about running my first 5k while there but not sure yet as I really don't like running but will be trying to maintain the weightless and survive my mother-in-law's delicious dinner.

Thanks for the support

Its hard for me to visit my parents cause its all about the food when I get out there so I feel your pain! My bf and I went for the 4th and I haven't stopped eating since. I'm kicking as* with the work outs but food is another story. My friend treated me to Cuban last night and it was delicious.

Hopefully eating will be better today. I need to get to the grocery store this weekend and that should help. I am going to the Roger Water concert tonight with my bf so I have to watch my food and beverage intake tonight.

Hopefully you can run the 5k. I'm not a fan of running either. Trying to build up on the treadmill. My friend mentioned a biathanlone but no date on the calendar yet. Just my goal of 130-135 for Sept 25.

Hi, Jamie. Just read your comments. I'm in almost the same boat. We had a missed miscarriage at the end of the first trimester and I'm dealing with the pregnancy weight gain, massive crazy moodswings, and complete lack of desire to get my a** moving. (But I will, because I can't stand being such an abject sack of doodoo.) I'm 146 and hating it. I'd finally gotten dwn to 138 when we got pregnant then put on the lbs because of the energy drain--I have a toddler and was going to bed at 8pm. At anyrate... Here I am in the 140's, moody, frustrated, and feeling about 10+ yrs older than I am. I'm one frustrated lady.

I'm really amazed and inspired by you people who want to do 5k's. I loathe running. Love being active and exercise, but God, I am not a runner. I'll do almost any exercise but that. Bless your hearts those of you that are.

And here I go, off for a short walk to get the body moving. Cheers ladies!

Thanks for the post whiningawayxz. Once you get moving, its easier to stay moving. I actually lost weight (and muscle) when pregnant cause I was so nauseous. I was working with a PT before the pregnancy and picked up again afterwards, but then ran out of sessions and switched gyms. I'm actually meeting with him next week. I'd like hire him back outside of his current gym.

I'm really good with my workouts, but not the eating. I love SWEETS. I'm starting at a cookie and brownie right now. I already had my protein bar and could continue eating.

The lady I work with had her baby girl yesterday. I am on such a baby kick, I want one now.

Thanks for inquiring. The cruise went great, probably because of the lack of cell service and Internet. I gained quite a bit despite 6am gym trips every morning but 1, but that was to be expected with 24/7 food.I just got back to 140.2 today, 3 weeks after getting back. Oh and Jamie, keep kicking as* with the workouts! whiningawayxz- I am with you on despising running but I am thinking about training as motivation to stay fit since I am basically at goal.

Hello everyone - just thought I would also 'dip my toes' in here since my home scale this morning at 8am said 143.2. I update my ticker based on my coach's official scale which is usually ~3lb heavier, and it said 150.2 last Friday at 1pm. But according to home scale I've 'whooshed away 4.2lb since Friday (-2.6 Sat morning and -1.6 this morning)...so I made the big jump into this thread! I figured even with the ~3lb difference, I'd still be in the 140s with my recent whoosh.

I'm leaving for the beach tomorrow and will miss this Fridays weigh-in, I should reach my goal weight by then but talked with my coach and will continue to stay on Phase 1 of Ideal Protein until the WI after that. I was going to reassess based on my BF%, but I am pretty sure I will start phasing off when I get back. I bought size 2 jeans last week and they were 'snug' but they fit just right (w/no muffin top) today! I am at ~27% body fat (Normal range), hoping to be closer to the Fitness range by my phase off in 2 weeks....we will see.

Anyways - just wanted to introduce myself, as I am settling into the 140s! Enjoy your week and I can't wait for the beach tomorrow!!!
