Sneaking online at work .. but as I have no cover Im on my own so can't get a proper break anyway lol ..

UBEE - I will be sure to tell my hunny they are the end of an era and he will just have to live with the memories lol .. I don't even know if 200 is my goal really .. originally it was 220 so that extra 20 is a maybe lol.

Okee .. better get back to work . had my nut bar and banana .. better get these clothes racks tidied up .. OMG .. I know this is an outlet place but jeepers if this is how people treat their clothes at home no wonder they have to buy them so darn cheap! Geeees!!! Wouldn't be so bad if they just brought them up to the counter instead of just dumping them on the ground .. its not like we have little clothes fairies that pick it all up .. still .. its a quiet day so will give me something to do .. have already unpacked about 7 boxes, hung and put away, changed all the models in the store into new outfits, topped up the $3 table and folded them all ... this job is soooooo why I don't do the washing at home anymore lol ... spending all day hanging and folding Im so not in the mood to do the same at home lol .. but then it gets to me and I have no choice cos that is something hunny won't do either rofl. Hugs all!

Good morning all. Looks like great progress for the challenge!

Vortex Welcome. It always helps to have more people in a challenge to give -- and get -- support!
SilentArctic Hey, you lost 6 pounds last week! That's wonderful. Focus on that because you sure did something right!
Easily Amused I love how you sort of casually mentioned as an after thought that you'd moved down into a lower obesity category. That would have been my lead in in capital letters. Way to go!
Ubee This is me cheering for you with the weight loss! You were right to be looking forward to the weigh in. Way to go.
NightKatt If your hunny is really, really, really into Twinkies and you can resist them, here's a link for a homemade version. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/homemade-twinkies/ It says these can be easily frozen. Might be fun to make them together.

Had a lazy day yesterday -- never even got dressed. It rained all day so after lunch I moved to the recliner and ended up falling asleep for 3 hours. Guess I was pooped out from moving all the mulch and dirt during the week -- figured it was my weight training for the week as I think I estimated that I had moved close to 3 tons by the end of the week. Having a parmesan chicken recipe and grilled asparagus for dinner tonight. Yum! Have a great day all.

Starfish it is the little things that help me most.
Betsy thanks! I need all the positive energy I can get.
Angela/Vortex it is never too late. Glad to have you joining us.
Silent you are down 4 pounds since you started! That is good! I've lost 3 and am on top of the world!!!
Easily thanks for the image of you weighing your boobs. I used to worry about the wrinkles until I looked at my aunts who are in their 90's. I love them! Now I wear my wrinkles with pride! It is that pannus that scares me.
Katt I taught my kids to hang up the clothes they try on. My sister one time tried on 500 bikinis in all different sizes and left them on the floor. I must have been adopted.
This thread is more fun when you are losing. Thanks Katt!

UBEE - WAHOOOOOOO ... Well done hun .. great drop .. I think the last challenge was all about you learning about yourself and choices more than losses so it was needed to get you to be able to focus this time so think of the last challenge as a success too cos it sure as eggs motivated you nicely this time round

EASILY - Definitely no Saint lol ... admittedly it was very stressful the first couple of years with her just coming over and doing things lol .. but taking the time to think about it I realise she would probably be lonely at home on her own, especially in the evenings. We have come to an understanding on my days off when I have been working to maybe not stop by through the day .. she is such an energetic little thing that I feel guilty for not being a whirling dirvish on my day off cleaning the house top to bottom .. even if its my only day off in a the week lol .. so its not so bad .. and she does help a lot which I appreciate too. Im the same as you about the clothes. I have cleared out about 80% of my wardrobe .. someone said to Gok it (Gok is an amazing English guy all about fashion and bodies etc .. look him up) .. which means revamping into something new .. but I remember how hard it was for me to find something nice at the op shops (second hand clothing stores) in my size so I thought it would be nicer to donate them for others to get some use out of too There are Stages in the BMI???? OMG .. that means I have reached Stage I too!! lol .. I just thought it was just Obese .. so kewl... you have made my day

SILENT - Wow!!! Fantastic loss for you this week hun .. really well done ... lovely Whoosh!

VORTEX - Welcome on in .. look forward to seeing you on the board .. I babble a lot so you are more than welcome to join in to reduce my babble lol

BETSY - I can always avoid my baking lol so will note that recipe and give it a go .. I have fortunately enough people I can give them away to lol .. and wow .. lots of working out with all that moving .. so definitely a deserved nap

STARFISH - Good on you hun .. I must admit I have been pretty bad in my note taking in my Calorie Counter for the last few weeks .. so I think I will start that again after my weigh in this week to see if that makes a difference in my loss ...

UBEE - You such a loser lol .. and omg ... 500 bikinis?????!!!!!! Holy crabapple .. other than the colours are there really that many designs??? How big was the store??? Good grief .. those would be such a pain in the tush to hang too lol ..


Right .. well .. today was supposed to be my day off .. but am needed at work so better go and get dressed .. glad I had breakfast with hunny before he left lol ... will catch up tonight instead Hugs all!

WATCH - Way to go for you too this week ... nicey nicey


Just taking time to relax for the evening ... of course the weather was BEAUTIFUL .. was the same last week when I was supposed to have the day off and I was called in to work .. and yet the day I did have off was miserable lol .. but it was a busy day, lots of clothes getting hung and put away and moved and rearranged and customers served .. was brilliant
Had a quick stop at the supermarket on the way home to get a couple of ingredients and then came home and baked some Savoury Muffins which had Bacon, Feta, Colby, Red & Green Peppers, Chives, Parsley & Paprika in ... 1 dozen of those .. and then 2 dozen of my Lemon/Coconut cupcakes ... all to take into work tomorrow for my workmates & customers to sample ... minus the ones that hunny wants to keep lol ..
I got quite a buzz today .. got myself a new pair of tights (Leggings) at work and they are only a size 16!!! YAY! ... my jeans are usually an 18-20 so I wasn't expecting them to fit really but wanted to get a pair in advance to get down into .. and Im wearing them comfortably! So regardless of the weigh in this week I have my high lol.
Hugs all!

Katt- congrats on the leggings fitting! I wear leggings everyday and realised today that I'm constantly having to pull up my 18s- I'll need to move down a size soon, I guess, but I'm feeling a bit cheap at the moment so they'll have to just be a bit saggy for awhile!

With what you said about 'ideal weights' and sizes a couple of pages back- do they really think the ideal weight is targeted at a size 8? My goal weight is the upper end of 'normal' BMI for my height, and when I was that weight many moons ago, I was a 12-14, and I was pretty slender back then. I can't imagine my body as a size 8. Seems that I would be nothing but bone then! I think bone structure and muscle mass play a lot into weight and sizing.

Easily- loved what you said about being a bit overweight to fill out the wrinkles. I'm going to remember that one later!

Sue the little green guy got me yesterday and I overate too. All done with that for both of us. New day and I am going to show a loss on Monday even if I have to shave my legs to do it!
Ferris I agree about body shape. I am an apple/V shape. If I were a size 8 I would look strange.
Katt yipee! on the new tights. I love how you cook. Don't be surprised if you see me on your doorstep someday.
Watchout thanks! I really am going to do this and I really need a lot of help. Another great loss for you! Better start planning some shopping trips.
Even though last night was a struggle, my mind is in such a better place this time around. I worry about my eating when life throws me a curve ball in the future. Any tips?

Ubee, what's a bikini? Personally, I'm leaning towards those swimsuits that my mother was wearing back in the 1920s.......covered a lot of sins!

Today I'm up another pound -- thought it was just water weight after a quick 2 pound drop and my body adjusting. Then I thought through what I really had to eat. Ate a LOT of fruit salad last night because the strawberries were beginning to get to the mushy stage and heaven forbid I just toss it out. And then added new potatoes to the roasted asparagus/zucchini and ate way too much. New lesson learned: even if it's good for you, you can still eat too much of it!

Off to the gym. Have a great day.
