Thanks, Katt! I enjoy seeing your pics too.

Wanna - Thank you so much! You're absolutely right. This is the best I've felt in actual years. Weight loss changes you inside and out.

Wow! Lots of great losses this week. Way to go everyone!!! WatchOut, you look adorable, as always.

I've been a bit blah this week for various reasons so I've mainly been reading. My water gain is coming off much slower than I gained it so I decided to skip this week's weigh in. Plus TOM has been extra fun.

I may have to do some tweaking with my plan again. I'm going to give it another week. I need to get my mojo back!

I'm so happy for all of you and love reading about your progress!!!

Must...

get...

up...

and...

move!

Ugh. I have no desire to move at all. My allergies are kicking my butt and that means I shouldn't be outside... and I can't let myself get out of breath or I'll start coughing a bunch. I'm feeling pretty sluggish today as well (I'm drinking a cup of coffee hoping that will help) and all I want to do is snack on the salty foods. I'm pretty sure that means TOM is coming. *sigh* TOM isn't supposed to be here for another week.

Hi everyone .. well I was up a pound this week .. so ignoring the weigh in lol .. will get it right next week Still .. 1 pound is a lot less than I expected so am happy with that

Soooo has anyone got any plans this week? I have a few days planned (which is unusual for me lol)...
Monday - Gym first thing .. hopefully the blisters won't pop, but will do my best to hit another 5km Then its off to work for the rest of the day
Tuesday - Day off - baking day!! Refining my Cheesecake Cupcake recipe again .. not sure how low cal I can get it .. but its definitely going to be gluten free and can do it dairy free too .. ummm .. if I don't put the topping on lol.
Wednesday - Full day of work .. then out to dinner with hunny, a lovely friend who is down on holiday for a couple of weeks, and a buddy who I call my big brother
Thursday - OFF! lol . haven't planned anything yet .. but might book my trainer for the afternoon
Friday - Same as Monday

Really going to try to get to the gym 3 times this week

I had a lovely day at work yesterday and then zipped home, had a shower, dinner .. then into a dress and nice boots/stockings etc for a photo shoot with my hunny ... Im not fond of doing these when I have to do my own hair & makeup ... but have seen some of the shots and they aren't too bad lol .. even did a swimsuit shot or two ... will see if Im willing share any of them lol.

Right .. determined to have an early night .. although Im not sure why .. I can't seem to sleep more than 6 hours lately .. very frustrating! Need to pack my gym gear etc before I go to bed so its all ready to go in the morning

Hugs all

This last week well, truth is I was kinda in crazy land. Hormonal HELLo. Perimenopause or whatever it is called. Good news is I maintained! I am very proud of myself. The old me would have tossed in the towel. Like Betsy, I think I can still make my goal.
Katt please share your pictures! I want to see the dress and boot combo. I love boots and someday I may even buy a pair. How are you going to make dairy free cheesecake cup cakes?
Mandy hope your allergies get better soon.
Easily I admire you for being able to stay away from the scale when you feel it will not be in your best interest. I am going to store that in my little brain.
Watchout YOU ARE A BABE! If I looked as good as you I would have mirrors all over my house!
Stephanie what a great loss!
Betsy yes it does come off slower then it goes on. Maybe we should stop putting it on. (Let me know when you figure out how to do that.)
Sue, Ferris what have you been up to?

Just a quick fly over as I'm taking Toby into town for his spa day (dog lives better than I do!). But, Ubee, I think if we can figure out a way to stop putting it on and to make it come off as fast as it goes on, then you could skip buying those lottery tickets!

Had a great weekend with the family for father's day and a couple of joint birthdays. Ate poorly and my fingers look like sausages. See note above to Ubee.

Off to the gym before the trip to town.

Alrighty, LET'S DO THIS!!! I've got my mojo back and am ready to battle the next 10 lbs!!!

Mandy, I hope you are feeling better! This heat and hormones have been making me lazy so I feel ya!

Katt, we are going to rock this week! 6 hours of sleep is a good night for me. I used to be a bear if I got less than 7, but now that I am older if I get 2+2, I'm usually less bear-like. I rarely sleep more than an hour or two straight though. I'm a morning person so it all works out I guess.
Nothing exciting planned this week, but I have started re-planning my leisure trip that I canceled so I'm getting excited thinking about escaping again.

Ubee, Yay for not gaining! Woot! We will fight the peri-meno beast together girlfriend!!! Oh, I didn't stay away from the scale exactly...I was only away one night and even then I weighed the minute I walked in the door. If I said that, I don't know what I was thinking...what I meant to say was that I gained a ton of water weight during my 24 hour break along with the surrounding celebrations and that the "water weight" wasn't coming off as quickly as I gained it so I just skipped the official posting of the weekly weigh in to the thread. I've only lost about half of what I gained so I am beginning to think it was not all water weight/TOM bloat or maybe it is just taking three times as long to lose it as to gain it. Makes total sense.
No matter what the dumb scale says, I am weighing in officially HERE on Thursday.

Betsy, Toby is a lucky critter! Hope the gym trip went well.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!!!

Hi everyone!

Highs near 100 degrees every day of the 10 day forecast. The LOWEST high is 94. Complete with lots of humidity. Summer in the south SUUUUUUUCKS.

I've managed to climb up through the lazy fog and get to the treadmill for a 2 mile walk the last few days, so while it's not much, it's much better than nothing at all.

Waiting on a phone call from the church where hubby interviewed to schedule another interview since the call committee voted unanimously to submit him for consideration to the church council, so that's good news. It just means more traveling on the horizon.

Mid-week weigh in is tomorrow... hope it's good!

Hi everyone!! Hopefully that pic works .. its me and my "big" sister The first pic was a few weeks after she was diagnosed with Melanoma ... and my wake up call .. the second is beginning of this year in a similar pose. As you can see my sis is still with us and doing ok .. had a bad report recently, but she is a fighter and we will just keep thinking positive, she has proven the docs wrong so far

UBEE - YAY!!! Love that attitude hun .. and whooot about maintaining this week .. that is a great achievement for sure Dairy free is easy ... its just using a spread called Olivani which is made from olives not dairy .. its the only dairy free spread we have over here that I have found so far. The only thing I can't make dairy free is the topping .. but then I don't have to put it on all of them (White Choc Cream Cheese Frosting). Haven't got the pics from my hunny yet .. and some of them are ok .. I really don't like doing these sorts of shoots without someone doing my hair and makeup cos Im useless at doing that lol .. but yeah .. there are a couple of good ones that I have seen .. and I also had a .. ummm .. boudoir shot done which was something I never thought I would do ... and while there are lots of folds (which hunny will hopefully photoshop lol) Im actually proud of myself (nothing is on show btw lol) for doing that ... so will see what ones he gives me to post and put a few of them up

WANNA & FERA - Wow .. with all those books you two could open a library lol. I love to read too but Im more into the crime ones lol .. James Patterson et al .. although if I want a quick read there is nothing wrong with a Mills & Boon lol (do you have Mills & Boon over there???? duh Katt of course they would). I also have a lot of Agatha Christie .. and my set of Harry Potter, CS Lewis .. a bunch of Beatrix Potter and Dr Suess lol... there are a few biographies in there too .. ummm ... Oh ... Terry Pratchet & Terry Brooks feature in my bookcase too .. so yeah a little sci-fi fantasy ish ... really now that I think about it .. I am rather eclectic in my reading .. same with music, movies etc

BETSY - FAB loss for you last week .. definitely rocking it Im with you on the speed of off compared to on lol ... always takes me a couple of weeks to recover the bad behaviour ... even if it was just one day ... usually longer when its a binge bender over a few days ... but you took a huge chunk out of the add on last week .. well done

FERA - Well done!!!! Great loss posted .. you are flying towards your goal for sure Hopefully you are starting to feel better .. although those temps aren't sounding wonderful lol .. I must admit hearing some of the temps you guys hit over there in the summer are just mind boggling to comprehend .. we are such a moderate country overall .. winter and summer (although the further south you go over here the colder in the winter). Hopefully you will find a way to cope with the heat there and good luck for the phone call you are waiting for

STEPHANIE - Wow!! Look at you flying towards your goal!! Definitely going to be hitting it and going further I think .. and great consistency too! Hope your headache didn't hang round for too long.

EASILY - I had a fun TOM too ... thought that it had finished .. only to reappear a couple of days later ... grrr ... not sure if that is what affected my weigh in last week but it could have been a combo of that and the carb binge (which I gave into I think because TOM was hanging round longer than needed lol). Im sure we will be back on track this week though I have tweaked my plan a little mainly by tracking my food again .. I think I got a little too lax in it which was allowing me to make too many naughty choices thinking I had that leeway when really I didn't ... let us know what things you tweak if you do change anything Sleep is never the same for me ... some nights I sleep for 6-7 hours straight .. other nights its hourly .. then its 3-4 ... I do find I sleep better on the nights that I have done a workout that day lol .. well .. now .. when I first started the exercise definitely not cos I kept cramping which would wake me up lol.

BETSY - While our ones don't got to get pampered they definitely live well lol ... this isn't our house, its theirs ..we just pay the mortgage lol. Meals are pretty much the same as ours more often than not and dog food is a treat for them. All 4 of them are our babies, Gizmo is my main girl, and Pepa is my boy, Baer & Teagan are my hunnys girls



Okee ... so yesterday almost didn't make it to the gym .. but managed to get there late afternoon instead of in the morning .. did a 45 min walk (4.3km - 551 calories apparently lol) ... had a lovely quick shower and finished just in time to get picked up by my hunny on his way home from work. We stopped at the supermarket and I got some bits and pieces for dinner etc ... came home and got dinner ready (Caesar Salad, Cheese & Onion Frittata and a little bit of a rotisserie chicken) .. high protein which is what my trainer said I needed on the days that I did a workout Have dinner tonight planned already too, home made chicken and vegetable soup with barley Little bit of crusty bread too, so will get that started soon as I am baking shortly too and like to get everything done at once then I can do one clean up instead of feeling like I am cleaning the kitchen all day lol ... and then I have my trainer this afternoon! Will ice (or not) the baking when I get home after dinner perhaps

So will catch up with everyone later Have a great day all

Mid week weigh in: 311.8

That's down 1.8 from Friday! Here's hoping that last few ounces falls off so I can have 2+ for the week when I weigh in on Friday.

*happy dance* I get a new book in 2 pounds!

Also, I get to post links and pics and stuff now. And have a sig! YAY
