Welcome on board everyone so far
Its great to have you all here!
Sheena82 - I know what you mean about the temptation of someone else's food offerings lol .. it is hard to resist .. and when you know its made with love its even harder .. maybe we can work out a way for you to enjoy every morsel .. .just in a different way lol
Workinghardatlosing - welcome on board .... looks like we are working on a similar goal
Dgramie - look forward to seeing your update
Trying my Best - good on you for signing up .. even if you will be sticking your toe in the water .. its a body part and it will do .. lol .. get your mind in the game this week perhaps ready to dive in next week
Are you one of those that count down the days for the holidays to be finished??
Lecomtes - Thanks for the wishes .. very exciting lol .. not that I know anything about the wedding .. but its nice to have surprises
wannaskipandlaugh - Im the same as you .. like the long term to target .. short term I feel like I am constantly making goals and if I miss one then I am devastated and ruin my successes .. welcome on board!
Only Believe - glad to see you on board ... and I see your birthday is coming up .. its a biggie .. ah I remember lol ..
Superhero Teacher - Wahoo .. LOVED Disneyland .. mind you that was 9 years ago lol .. and I was a little smaller then .. but I dont think size mattered there .. I was a kid again regardless
I think its great you have allowed yourself that release too
Pjvw34 - I know what you mean about the scales .. sometimes you may find a week or two with no movement .. I remember seeing someone didnt move for over a month! But its just a case of reminding yourself its not always about the loss in weight .. its also about how much better you feel for the changes you have made and the successes you have already had
Boatingmommy - great to see you join in .. look forward to your update
Cheeriloos - It is a little exciting .. I remember a few years ago (when I started this journey on 3FC) that the Xmas challenge didnt really start until Oct/Nov .. definitely not long enough to feel like I had officially done anything towards my goal by Xmas lol .. so a good reason to give at least 4 months to work on it
So here we go ... weigh in tonight for me .. and I am excited ... and fearful lol .. my hunny said I should weigh in this morning .. but that wouldnt be right and accurate .. I weighed myself before dinner last week .. so going to do the same this week and every week. On the plus side I have realised I havent had a single piece of chocolate/chocolate bar or cookie ALL WEEK!! That is something I cannot remember going without for longer than a day or two .. my new mantra when I am tempted is "WEDDING DRESS" lol .. seems to be working lol
I dont know anything about my wedding .. my hunny is doing ALL of it .. including getting the dress etc .. I just need to put it on .. get in whatever car he sends me and go to wherever it is lol .. at least he told me the date lol ... so maybe the lack of control and stress of that will help me control my weight and temptation on this challenge
