Talking December Alternachat!

Well, winter is finally here in London. It's bitingly cold here and there is frost on the grass and it makes me really excited I love the turning of the seasons, although the weather forecast says it's going to get milder and rain in a couple of days, but it's ok because I'll be in France for the next two weeks with the bf's Family.

November went really well for me, I've instilled some really good habits of portion control, healthy snacking, drinking plenty of water, exercising and I joined WW. I lost 6lbs last month and I'm aiming for 8lbs this month. I weighed in at 200lbs this morning which is awesome and means I LOST WEIGHT ON HOLIDAY!!! This is a fabulous NSV for me because I let myself enjoy all the food and drink on offer but I stayed active with walking and swimming and I didn't over indulge which really paid off

It's my 25th bday next week and I was really nervous about hitting a quarter of a century, but I'm don't feel so bad anymore because I feel I'm turning my life around. I know I've only lost 10lbs so far and I've lost and gained this weight before, but somehow this feels different... I'm making a life change not fighting against the clock or calendar to hit a certain weight by a certain date and it feels good to be so positive

Anyhoo, I'm flying off to Lyon today, already my egyptian tan is starting to fade but I'm happy and looking forward to the closing of this year and starting an even better one next month.

Have a great Tuesday Alternas!

Sounds like you've been doing really well Maria. I unluckily, haven't been doing so well. I'm working at getting back on plan...but I've definitely been struggling with it, especially with the holidays...

I'm stressing about finals and money and homework and papers...I've got so much to do, and I guess I haven't been paying as much attention to what I'm eating as I should be.

I did exercise for the first time in a long time the other day though...and I'm thinking about getting a gym membership.

Losing over a holiday is AWESOME!

I had been doing ok with weight loss for a couple days but today was hard. I had been doing the 4 day diet induction module. Today I just could not follow day 4 to a T because I was on the road all day doing errands. Tomorrow I am traveling and will be gone for a day. I will be stuck in JFK for a layover for four hours on Thursday. UGH! It will be hard to stay on track because I like to eat when I am bored or stressed but I guess the fact that a muffin costs $5 and a sandwich costs $7 should keep me away from the food at the airport. I am just hoping the weather cooperates and I am not stuck there any longer than I need to be.

Well dinner is not going to make itself for the family so I best get my booty in the kitchen and then I need to pack and organize.

Hang in there Divine, it's hard to stay on track when you are stressed, but you'll pull through

I hope you do well on your travels Kisses, maybe get hold of or makes some healthier snacks to tide you over on long journeys?

I've finally jumped back on the exercise wagon after 4 days off and cycling is tough! The bf's parents also have a power plate so I jumped on that this morning and holy cow, that was an intense workout! I'm making a trip to the supermarket to sock up on healthy foods so I can stay inside points without too much hassle here. I'll definitely be happier when the gorgeous home made chocolate mousse gets eaten and is no longer tempting me from the fridge!!

It's nearly the weekend, so hang in there and hopefully you can relax a little come saturday girls

Going2bhealthy - congrats on the weight loss!

Hang in there Divine and Amanda!

I am doing pretty well this week. I put on a pair of jeans this morning only to discover that they are getting too big - yay!

Hey everyone. I was definitely down to 200.2 this morning, so by tomorrow, if I'm good...I could be in onederland. Tomorrow I'll post my "official weight" because I've decided that since I'm doing the 20 somethings BL Challenge, I'll only change my weight on the days we weigh in for that...so my official weight might maybe hopefully be in the 190s...and I'd be SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!

Way to go divine!

Well the tree is up and I am putting the lights on the front porch this afternoon. Cookies are in the freezer, only one gift left to get and I am done except for groceries for our Christmas party.

I survived my travels and got home safely. My eating was not perfect by an means but it could have been a lot worse!

The first day I had sweet potato chips (mmm) and iced animal crackers on my flight. I was snacky because I only ate some buttered toast before running out at 4am for the flight.

I didn't have lunch. I let my son pick where we had dinner. He has an eating disorder caused by a traumatic choking experience so he is picky. He chose Ponderosa because he likes the chicken wings and the all you can eat ice cream I had good intentions but the weather got the best of me. I live in Florida and compared to that Vermont was COLDDDDDD! I just wanted warm comfort food. I felt terrible after I ate what I ate. I had two Hersheys kisses before bed.

The next day I had half a greek yogurt for breakfast. I was just not in the mood to eat yet. I had sweet potato chips again on the plane because I love Terra chips. I had a 4 hour layover in the Jet Blue terminal at JFK. They have a nice food court with an awesome salad bar. I probably had a few more calories in my salad bowl than I needed but it was all nice healthy stuff. I packed some fruit in my bag and had a few fresh raspberries too. I ended up also having a pummpkin spice latte.

Not too bad until I got on the plane for a 3 hour flight at dinner time. I had Doritos munchie mix. When I got off the plane I was starving and we hit the drive through 'Nuff said!

Today I am tired and trying to tackle some cleaning. Tomorrow I will worry about weight loss again.

My next challenge....Taking my kids to see The Fantastic Mr Fox on Sunday. I need a sweet bandit hat with no mouth hole so I can avoid the snacks

I hope you all have a good weekend!

Congrats on the loss Divine AND on the loose jeans mauve!

I spent the weekend in Italy and ate way too much, albeit things I would only ever eat in Turin so I don't feel too bad as I consider it a birthday treat. That being said I've decided to move my day off from my actual bday to this past friday as we went to an amazing restaurant which specialises in Piemontese food and I probably ate around 50 points in that one evening and drank another 10 in wine so I'm going to be excellent this coming week, planning and tracking and exercising.

The scale we have here in France is broken so I have no chance of weighing in unless I fork out an large wad of money to buy another set... France is expensive perhaps that is why I was so bad with my points this weekend (I ate 16 points in cheese!!!).

I hope you have all had great weekends and are looking forward to the coming week

well I've definitely been going up and down. I think this morning I was 202.2 or something, I'm not sure. I bought a new journal last night (that will fit in my purse) so I can start journaling my food intake again, and hopefully that will help me stay on track. I'm also going to start working out soon....I know I keep saying that, I've just been having trouble finding the time. I'll get it figured out...

kissesformomo, have you thought about popping your own healthier popcorn (94% fat free butter) at home and putting it in a ziploc bag and sneaking it into the movies in a somewhat large purse? I do that all the time...lol

Hi everyone. I hope you don't mind me jumping in. I haven't posted in alternahicks in the better part of a year I think.
was 242 two weeks ago but Thanksgiving drove me up to 252.5 last week's attempt to detox it out of my system was a horrible failure. So I hope this week will be much better.

today I weigh 250.5
I started a weight loss contest with my bf to help motivate me (and him) we're going by % loss in one week...loser has to make a healthy dinner for the other. We started today.

In the morning (as it's 2:30 am at the moment) my Bf and I will attempt to scale one of the mesa's behind our neighborhood. But it rained a few hours ago and depending on how heavy the rain was, we may cancel our hike. (though it never rains hard enough in our neck of the woods to keep the ground damp for more than few hours, much less muddy.)

Sakai, that's great. I wish that my boyfriend would be open to some sort of challenge like that. It would do wonders for keeping me on track. It's SO FRUSTRATING sometimes that he's as overweight as he is, and he still isn't trying to lose weight even though he sees from me that if you put the effort into it, that it will pay off. Don't get me wrong, he's super supportive of me...but he's so self concious and his weight bothers him so much....so you'd think he'd want to try and lose some of it....Sometimes I can't help but get mad at him for it...it's like he doesn't even WANT to try...UGH!

Sakai, just be glad you've got a bf who's trying WITH you. I would kill for that....well, not literally...but you know what I mean.

lol yes I know what you mean. My BF always seems to be there to support me in whatever it is I want to do. Which is great. I know I'm lucky to have someone who supports any hobbies and such.

We didn't go on our hike today. the weather did a 180 today. It was cold, scattered rain and very...very windy. So we were sure that climbing around rocks in that kind of weather wasn't a good idea. I'm pretty bummed because I really wanted to start the week off with a bang. Maybe tomorrow morning before bedtime. (we're overnight workers.) maybe then we can at least take a little hike in the dessert.

Tonight for dinner I'm making a Miso soup with noddles and tofu.

Well WB Paula. Everyone gets off track at one point or another...the important part is that you're getting back on. I'm sure you'll be fine, you've got this in you. =D
