Andi-Glad to have you back. So sorry to hear that Cancer has taken away some of your friends. Getting those kids settled back in school is hard on everyone too. What a battle of emotions you have been dealing with for the past month. Hang in there and be strong.

Default Proceed

What would you do right now if you knew that everything today would
turn out perfectly? What project would you start, what person would
you talk to, what problem would you tackle if you could be assured of
success?

Is there anything you're putting off because you're afraid of
failure? Is there anyone you're avoiding because you're afraid of
what they would say or think?

There is no guarantee of success. But there is a guarantee that if
you never go for it, you'll never have it. And even in the failed
attempts, you'll learn and grow. There is no guarantee that other
people will think highly of all you say and do. But that's their
problem.

Do you believe in the worth of your own pursuits? If so, then what
could possibly prevent you from following them?

If you're looking for a sure thing, then here's one --
everything you achieve will come only from the things you attempt.
In order to succeed, you must proceed.
Today is a great day to start.

Corinna, I love your inspirational messages.

So far I've lost almost 3 pounds this week, but those were recent pounds so they shouldn't have been there in the first place!

Found a good product from the grocery: Kroger has vanilla greek yogurt that is (mostly) sweetened with Stevia, so it's much lower in carbs but still very high in protein. I top it with Nature Valley protein granola (only 1/8 - 1/4 cup) and it's very filling until lunch. :-)

Andi

Thanks Andi!

Congratulations on your weight loss!! That's great.

Your yogurt and granola sounds good. I have been eating similar to you this past week, but probably not as healthy. I have been having some cereal and yogurt for breakfast.

Here is a recipe I tried yesterday. I was trying to find something sugar free and good and healthy. I used frozen cranberries instead of raisins and cooked an apple to make the apple sauce. The cookies are best when made sort of thin. I used non-stick cookie sheets.

Hi everyone! I've been away for awhile so am happy to be checking in. I started August off at 188.2 and am currently at 185.8. Just returned from the farmer's market with some fresh peaches and nectarines.

@WebWoman: My condolences for your losses. Two in one month! How very difficult. You're a good friend. I experienced something similar this month with the unexpected death of a dear friend's husband. That's a big part of why I've been away.

@Corrina T: HUGE congratulations on the 1/2 marathon! What an accomplishment I've ran several 5 and 10Ks but the 1/2 is my dream race. Only a year ago I was running regularly then I struggled with injuries, the weight piled on, and here I am. I've never done the Couch to 5K program, but I think it's a good place to begin again. I WILL make this goal happen. And thanks for the link to the Huff Post article. Very inspiring. While I'm not on any type of medication it really shows that we can unburden ourselves of them (or at least some of them) when we focus on our health and live intentionally.

Looks like everyone is progressing well and keeping at it. Here's to a super September!

Hello All!

Down 1.8 this week

Aida, Andi and Renee - Good job on the losses!!

Curvynotlumpy - Welcome back - good to see you lost this month. I also went to the farmer's market this morning and got some beautiful peaches - they are so good right now!

Have been having issues this week. It seems like there is so much to do and so little time, and I have been feeling a little overwhelmed with everything and definitely not getting enough sleep. It is making me really emotional, BUT...(silver lining)... I am not turning to food for solace, and that in itself is a huge turnaround for me.

Have a good week, everyone

Good job Renee! You are almost at your halfway point!!! Keep it up and you will see the finish line soon.

LOL Lizzie, maintaining is good too. You are still headed in the right direction and not backsliding.

Aida-you are still losing steadily. Is 27 Sep a goal point for you?

Hey CurvyNotLumpy-glad to see you stop by and say Hi. Good job on that weight loss. Keep at it. Sorry to hear that death has touch someone close to you too.

Yeah Jude!!! Those pounds are disappearing for you. You sound like you have been staying strong on that emotional roller coaster. Hang in there, your doing good.

I gained another 2 pounds this week. Yupper. However, it is just an emotional time of the year for me. I haven't figured out a good way to deal with all the feelings.

I haven't been over indulging. I just haven't been as strict with my food choices as I should be. I know what I should be doing, but I have just been fighting with myself. I don't want anyone telling me what to do, and not even myself. That is the type of mood and grumpiness I have been having lately. I suppose it could be hormones, but I really don't want to blame it on anything. It has just been how I felt, and what I chose to do.


I did run a 10KM race Saturday, and then Sunday I went on a 6 hour bushwalk. So I sort of feel I earned the right to eat a decent meal. Perhaps it is the wrong excuse for now. However, I expect I will be back on track again after this week. I know I will be.

Soo sorry for the vacation break from the diet regime. I expect to be joining you all once again as we head towards the fit & trim finish line.

WOW! I love the "Which is harder?" quote! I'm still here fluctuating back and forth and isolating by not posting. Not a good place for me to be. We have a vacation coming up soon and my rotator cuff surgery is Nov. 7. ALL of it is hard at this weight!

Thanks for all your posts and helping me to remember I'm not alone.
