Thanks.

I did snag a good one... He proposed to me when I was just 10 pounds smaller than I am now... married me at 40 pounds less, and still loved me at 20 pounds bigger. I really wish I could see me through his eyes, just once. He's always been very supportive and had nothing but kind words for me. Never once has he said anything about my weight. He knows better than to tell me "you're not fat" (we had such a fight over that once, about 4 years ago), but he constantly tells me he thinks I'm pretty, or that I look great in a new outfit or something. With him, I never worry about my weight.

MANDY - I think your pics are lovely and your hunny sounds like mine I know with him it doesn't matter what I look like on the outside, he really doesn't see that too much .. which surprises me cos I see it all the darn time. He loves to take photos of me and I don't understand that either cos when I see some of them Im like OMG look at that arm, or bulge or roll or fold omg .. that is soooo not the way I need to be looking at them .. and neither should you I look at my wedding pics and regardless of the size of me, I remember the day and the way I felt and I possibly see what he sees .. so I hope when you look at those pics (which I think are sweet) that you remember the feel of the day and look at them with those eyes instead



Had a great day today .. I did take the Cheesecake Cupcakes to work for the customers which went down really well .. had to keep a couple for friends for dessert lol. We went out after work to an Indian restaurant and I treated myself tonight .. had a glass or two of wine, but didn't have a lot of food, just little bits of a few things (as its not my fave type of food lol) but the company was excellent and I had a lovely evening

Hopefully it won't affect my weigh in on Friday too much .. but I am heading to the gym tomorrow afternoon so will see how I go

Good Morning!
Sue true we don't have to like it. By the way according to my original calculations I should be at goal by now!
Katt glad you had a good time out with friends. I just started relaxing and letting myself drink (coffees) some of my calories. I really missed them.
Mandy you and hubby look so happy! You are very pretty.
Watchout you are so close to 200!
Easily glad you got your mojo back! I am going to tackle it 5 pounds at a time but I am with you!
Betsy my cat always tries to bite my toes. Hubby says he thinks they are his breakfast sausages. (The cats not hubbys!)
Feels so good to be back in the saddle!

Mandy, such sweet pics!
Great job on the walking! 2 miles is a long way!!!
Hope all goes well with the hubby job.
Congrats on the departure of 1.8!!!

Katt, you look lovely! I love the colors in the shirt of the more recent pic.
I so hope things work out for your sister. Thank goodness the medical progress has come a long way so I have high hopes for you.
WTG on the walking!!!

WatchOut, congrats on another lb down!!!

Sue, Hang in there!!! You are having a great overall losing trend!

Ubee, thanks! I am with you on the 5 lbs at the time. Unfortunately, 5 of those were gained lbs so I just got ballsy and went for 10.

We GOT this!!!

Easily 70 pounds gone for good is a huge win!
I went to a larger town yesterday and found sugar free caramel for my coffee. Not the same but close enough. It is fitting because I have to change to do this.

Hi everyone.

Thanks for the kind words on my pics. I appreciate it.

I didn't get much sleep last night. So I'm kinda tired. I have a goal of 4 miles today. I'm at .2 right now. Don't want to move at all. Gotta get off my butt. Up and at 'em.

I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the threads! Work seems to have blocked the site so now I can only enter on my cell phone or tablet - which is a HUGE pain in the rump.... grrr....

So anyway --- sorry I'm absent so much and having a hard time replying to everyone's discussion.

Mandy, I couldn't see your pics, I'm sorry --- I did see your's Katt -- beautiful!

My scale and I are getting along again - :
We had a bad Monday lol - I had gained 4 lbs - long story short, you may have seen it on other threads, Nyquil/Dayquil got me - 19 carbs per dose and I took it 4 or 5x a day.

But - I'm back and since Monday I've lost 6lbs so Im still on track for my goal. I'm sooooo excited at the possibility of weighing under 300 lbs by August - I haven't weighed under that in years. Years!!

And like many of you said, I'm blessed with an awesome hubby who never has ever made me feel bad about my looks and is always telling me I'm beautiful etc. Even though I think he's nuts lol

But, ya know, some local friends started a FB group and we've been getting together to excercise, etc. Like half of them have hubbies/boyfriends/whatever that are on them about their weight and making them feel bad if they do have something they shouldn't.. I was fuming. All these women are beautiful and amazing gals, and not to mention I'd give my big toe to weight what they do!, How dare those make these women feel like crap for a few extra pounds. GRRRR

And they just make excuses for them - oh he can't help it if he likes small women, etc etc --- makes me very angry. But also very thankful for my wonderful hubby who no matter what would not ever make me feel that way.

WANNA - Hunny you are still doing fine .. such a little stall really … you have been consistent all month so its a little stall … thats all .. you are doing ab fab (not to mention gives me a chance to catch up woman lol)

UBEE - I enjoy a couple of coffees a day now .. no sugar and only trim milk so its not too bad really … other than my Starbucks one of course which always seems to have more calories (but then its more milk lol).

EASILY - Reading about your temps makes me happy lol .. I know it sounds weird but I like my cold weather over here now we are heading into Winter .. I find it easier to layer on the clothes for Winter than strip em back to cool down lol. Thankies .. my daughter commented on it being see through lol .. I said Im wearing a bra .. be thankful lol. Medical has come a long way. We lost my nephew a few years ago to leukaemia (he was 11.5) and that took a while for our family to recover from as he had been given the all clear 18 months earlier (he was originally diagnosed at 5). But like I said, my sister is a fighter and an inspiration so we are thinking all good I think the accountability of posting our weight each week helps to control some of my bad behaviour (obviously not all of it or I would be going down consistently lol). So I’m very proud of you for sticking to it and posting whatever the result .. you know it will get there eventually And look at that .. 70 pounds gone gone gone!! Be proud … I read a quote the other day at the gym … “don’t wait til you reach your goal to be proud of your achievement, be proud of every step on the journey” … I think that is fab

UBEE - Not a fan of flavourings in my coffee … just like my coffee lol .. and I don’t have any of those SF things … I get headaches from those fake replacements so easier just to say no .. or have an indulge moment lol.

MANDY - Hope you get some rest tonight .. you are doing soooo much better at the whole physical aspect of this journey than me lol .. at least you are consistent!

ALI - Welcome back hun … I am having the same issue with access… I used to be able to get the wifi to work at Starbucks in the morning before I started so I could catch up .. but since I updated the darn thing it won’t connect and Im afraid to play with the system in case I screw it up and can’t use it anywhere lol .. but the phone is a painful way to view it. Wow on the loss since Monday .. omg .. mind you I would get told off if I did that again but yay you and I know what you mean about reaching a goal that you haven’t see for years … Im at the lowest that I can remember since oh .. about 20 years!!! scary now I think about it lol. Im with you about those beep men … I have known others like that .. but they know not to say anything about their wives/gf that isn’t positive around me or I give them a piece of my mind .. and considering how non-vocab they are .. its a short blast or they get lost. I think we with husbands/partners that love us just the way we are .. however we are .. are darn lucky .. and definitely something to think about on those days when we are feeling icky about ourselves … while we may not see what others do .. obviously the special ones see something that we need to see (hopefully that made sense .. I think Im babbling again lol).



Well happily I managed to lose what I added last week .. as well as a little extra ... hopefully this has put me back on track again .. I missed both of my gym appointments this week due to migraine on Tuesday and then I went into work on Thurs ... so whew that I at least got there on Monday lol .. will try again next week .. although I have mentioned to hunny that maybe I could go after work once or twice ... something to work on

Hi all. Was completely AWOL for a month. Did some travel and allowed that to derail me. The good news is, I only came back a pound heavier than I left. The bad news is.... that's still moving backwards.

So, okay, here I am, renewing my resolve even though it's Friday

Glad to see how active you all continue to be. Send those get-er-done vibes my way.

I love all of the photos! Thanks for sharing everyone. You all are beautiful. And I can't wait to see even more great progress pics as we continue to kick butt. Hehe.

Thanks for everyone's kind words. I will admit that I have been basically living under a rock since my husband left. We did, however, get some good news a couple of days ago - the visa was approved! We've still got some hoops to jump through, but we're hoping that he will be able to fly home (cuz "home" is wherever I am for him) on Sept. 1. Woohoo!!

So now I have even more of a reason to keep doing well. I want to surprise him with a smaller version of myself!

In the spirit of sharing, here are a couple of wedding pics from our Dec 13, 2013 wedding in Masterton, NZ. I was probably near my highest weight here.





This is from our wedding in my hometown in Arizona on May 17, 2014.
