Well, I made it through... Filed the last extension this afternoon at 5:30. Tomorrow we'll hang around the office until 3:30 to answer questions and so forth. Then we go to the bar.

Eating has been ok, but not perfect the past few days. Just so busy dealing with everything. Glad it's all done (for the most part).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Rennie!

I think I need to reign myself in a bit... I had gastro on Friday (thanks kids) and was (hideously) unwell for about 24 hours. Over the last few days I've been purposefully eating and drinking MORE than I wanted because the dehydration dropped my milk - first time this has happened in 4 babies - and poor wee DS was already looking a bit skinny after his own bout with the virus.

Anyway, all is well now yet I'm still munching on biscuits and ice cream and chocolate. I need to regroup, I'm pleased with how things have been going. Might go for a run to stop my sneaky trips into the kitchen.

So we are half way through this challenge and I am half way to my goal!

I am back, ladies. Back on weight loss path. Scale dropped another 1.8 pounds yesterday So it saw 13x.x on my scale this morning and it made me really happy. My goal of 135 by May 14th seems possible now.

I met my minigoal. I wanted to be 140 by Friday and today is only Tuesday. Now I want to be at or below 138 by Friday, that would bring me back to my lowest weight since I started this journey a year ago....am I getting greedy?

I did 170 minutes of exercise yesterday. I walked twice; first the pup at brisk pace for 4.2 miles, then did my 4.7 mile power treadmill walk, and finished all off with a 45 minute swim.

The only bad thing I did all day; I ate some Easter candy . Obviously not enough to do any damage.

I was wearing some biker short type of bottoms yesterday at the gym and it exposed my legs... I thought my legs had looked okay, but under the harsh gym lights the reality came to light; they don't I have all sorts of clumps of fat and cellulite..... I guess the weightloss will attack those too, in time. I have always liked my legs...now they seem to have gone downhill as well It did not help that I was surrounded with fit and trim people on their treadmills.

Something to work on.

We got more snow...in April, ugh. I guess we met the record of the snowiest winter ever.

Well off to start my day. I have a doctor appointment, need to get some errands run and the gym of course

Have a beautiful day my online peeps!

I started skipping dinner and since then I have lost 5 pounds in one week... Coincidence? I eat 1100-1200 cals per day, really big lunch.

Thumbs up

SUM Not a coincidence at all!! Haven't you heard the saying eat breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper? I think having a lighter meal or no meal at night gives your body a chance to digest and the body a chance to get into fat burning mode..I have globs of cellulite on my legs, add edema to that and my legs are horrific....so I read ya' on that....hopefully the weight training you are doing will help build up more leg muscle and help with the skin tone....cellulite is fat and some of it (not all of it) should improve with weight loss...atleast it has for me in the past. try not to be discouraged.

CHUBBYMUM Oh my ..you really had a rough time of it lately. Hope you are all on the mend..you'll get back on track now..you'll be fine.

MARLENE Drink up... You deserve a little spiritual libation after all that hard work!!!

JENNYKAY Welcome

SHANNONSNAIL I didn't get to congratulate you!!!!!

Lots of rain here today, looks like a monsoon. Taught my class, only five students there which is odd but it was a good class anyways. I tried to exaggerate movement so I could burn more calories....and make my muscles work harder. I have to remind myself that what is a super easy workout to me is a real challenge to some of my older gals and I need to work out for them, not for me..but I needed to burn off some steam today.

So happy that i am below 150 again....hopefully this time the scale will keep dropping. Im in my room right now...there are workers here installing a t.v. over my fireplace...wound up being a more complicated (and expensive) job than i thought it was going to be...but i think its going to be fine, i'm looking forward to being able to watch t.v. in the living room and relaxing in there. Anyhow because the guys are here I am keeping out of the kitchen area and that means I can't eat...not such a bad thing. Trying to keep that scale number going in the right direction!!

Congrats, Shannon, good job getting to Onederland!

Whoo, nice to see you charging full steam ahead again Sum! You've got this! Try not to be too hard on yourself (your legs), I think the in-between stage can be tough - keep going and your legs will smooth out all right. Hope you've got power back by now; you live right on the edge of one of the Great Lakes? How wonderful!

Chubby, glad everybody's well again.

Whew, Marlene, you got through it! Definitely time to cut loose a bit and celebrate.

Apple, hang in there, everything makes a difference! Run, walk, move it! Oh, rowing is great too.

Zumba, keep dry! for the under 150!

Welcome jennykay!

Sum great news at the scale! Snow? Yowzers! I'm in the South where seasons seem to change back and forth daily but we have definitely said goodbye to snow, thankfully!

Zumba we had a monsoon tonight too! I just planted some herbs this weekend so I hope they made it. I will check on them tomorrow.

Still going strong this week. I am really tired though. I have a bad habit of staying up late (12-1 am) and then my 3.5 yr old wakes early (and sometimes during the night too) so I'm just not getting enough sleep. It is so hard for me to force myself to bed earlier. I am tired but it's my only time to myself all day. I need to make peace with bedtime.

Sum - how exciting to get to the 130s! I haven't even dreamt that goal

Zumba - I would have gladly boosted your attendance as I love Zumba...it's so easy to get distracted with the music and hip movements

Shannonsnail - I was up late last night too, although not typical for me. My 9 year old wanted to check out the lunar eclipse and then decided against it after I woke her! I, of course, couldn't fall asleep after.

Marlene - congrats on reaching the 15th. My hubby works with TurboTax and he is still at the office. We're sooo close now though.

Not much to report here. I was OP for eating but not much movement. Mainly because I am exhausted today. Plan to go to bed early and start again tomorrow.

Dropping in again... We did go to the bar (Mexican). 3 skinny Margaritas, chips, salsa, guacamole, shrimp & avocado, flour tortilla... I skipped dinner after all that...

Leaving in the morning on a camping trip & taking lots of healthy OP food. I may just skip the scale until we get back on Sunday.

Hope everyone has a good rest of the week and weekend!

Have a great camping trip marlene!

sum you are doing so well!! Wow, 13x.x!! I am really happy for you!

Jenny great job being OP with your eating!

Shannon, you are doing a great job! It's hard having a toddler, you definitely need to make peace with bedtime, though... It does get easier as they get older from that regard...

zumba great job getting below 150 again!
