01-14-2008, 07:22 AM
Good Morning! Can't believe I'm the first one up today....
I'm down 1.6 this week. Not bad for the 2nd week. Plus I feel good that I have not overeaten this week :)
01-14-2008, 07:58 AM
This is my second week and I am down 5 pounds.
01-14-2008, 08:33 AM
Great job, both of you!
Ashley, you're in the "2s" how exciting!
I'll weigh in tomorrow.

I just started again on last Wednesday - I took the weekend off - that was planned (Packer Game - lots of people - yeah, the game is coming back here on Sunday!!)
So.. bottom line.. I stayed the same. and that's okay :)
Way to go Beth and Ashley! You both are doing awesome!!

I'm down 1 lb! It took me 2 weeks to get it, but I am FINALLY in the "130's"!!!!!!! Yea!!!!!!! Great job on the losses ladies! Good job maintaining with the weekend off too, Charbar!!
01-14-2008, 09:27 AM
Dana-hi sweetie! Hey, it's great to stay the same after a weekend of less than healthy eating!
Jellybelly-wow, the 130s! I haven't seen that since high school...too many years ago. Congratulations!!! You are amazing!
01-14-2008, 11:49 AM
Great stuff everyone!
I'm down 2 lbs - I'll take it!
01-14-2008, 12:01 PM
Beth, I found your 1.6! :( Being accountable here....and already planning a loss for next Monday! Great job on the losses and maintaining.

I've decided to start all over after indulging big time during my California vacation. And weigh-in on Mondays, hopefully keeping me from going crazy on the weekends.
So as of today, I weigh 249 lbs.
And congrats to the losers and maintainers!

Great job everybody!! :cheer2:
I'm having a hard time deciding what my official weigh in day is going to be this time around! I used to weigh in every Thursday. The reason for that was because it's my favourite TV night... Survivor, Grey's, then ER. Not now because of the strike, of course.
Last time, I allowed myself chips every Thursday night. This time, I'm trying to avoid that..unless it's a small bag that fits into my calorie budget.
Any suggestions for a good weigh in day for me?

Linda - thats a good question! I also used to do Thursdays, but switched to Monday/Tuesdays because of when I started this new eating plan. I also switch between the two days because of work - I need about 30 minutes after I wake up to get an accurate reading.
I am down 3 pounds! I am extremely happy with this :)
Congrats everyone! Losing, gaining, staying the same.. I really just think its impressive to keep accountable no matter what :)

Linda, I chose Monday. It helps to keep me stronger during the more difficult (at least for me) weekend. I didn't want to mess up an entire weeks worth of good eating just because it was the weekend, knowing that I would have to be that much more accountable come Monday morning.
And forget those chips come Thursday night. How about some roasted string beans? A sliced apple with cinnamon? Fat free/sugar free ices? Some sugar free jello with berries? 25 frozen grapes? There are lots of better choices. Foods that will keep you much more satisfied then those chips. Really, once you get used to doing without them - you won't miss them.

Haven't been here for a while. Time to get back on track. Hello, everyone!
01-14-2008, 06:19 PM
Trying to make myself accountable, I am actually down 2 lb, which is surprising to me since I was not good over the weekend. I have to figure out how to combat my stress, since eating obviously has not done it. But, yay! I am down 2 lbs!
01-14-2008, 06:20 PM
I'm down 3 lb. this week :carrot: Just 1 more lb. to my 10% goal :cheer:
01-14-2008, 07:33 PM
I am the same weight as last week. 264.4 pounds. It was TOM too and I don't know how that affects my weight gain/loss, but I am hoping to see results this week.
I've made an appointment with my physician to "weigh in" on Jan 31. I'm already down from 274 in December, so I feel good about that, but I would like to lose a few more pounds by the end of the month.
Good luck this week everyone!

Down 4 pounds for the week here. It's been tough since I can't exercise. Been having severe screaming back spasms since Jan.2. They are starting to clear up - I am soooooo tired of struggling to do anything.
10 pounds til Valentine's Day :cheer2:
01-14-2008, 09:36 PM
-4lbs this week for me. :)

Robin.. how do you do roasted string beans? those sound yummy!
Dana, the string beans ARE yummy. And they're just as good and even more satisfying then all the junk we've been so used to. If we're ever going to get anywhere with this weight loss, we MUST find SUBSTITUTES for the junk foods we normally eat/ate. Going off plan even one day a week can really sabotage our weight loss efforts. And for what really? Is is really worth it? So when you have a gathering, make foods that are delicious - no deprivation therefore, just make them HEALTHY. Change your way of thinking what "party" food or "weekened" food or "treat" foods are. That's the idea.
Roasted Green Beans
Make a lot, they really are yummy.
-Green beans, rinsed and trimmed.
-Spray a large cooking sheet with cooking spray.
-Lay beans on in as much as a single layer as possible.
-I add tons of fresh coarsely chopped garlic and chopped onions about 1/2 way through, and a little sea salt
-Spray beans with some more cooking spray
-Place in 400 degree oven for about 30-40 mins, turning every now and then, til they get almost brownish and wrinkly.

I'm going to use Tuesday's as my weigh in day for now :)
I'm down to 246.5. That's another 2 pounds, I think.
For a total of 7 pounds since Jan 2nd :)

Today's my first weigh in and it's 250.5 lbs. I'm a bit obsessive about the scale so I'm going to try my best not to weigh myself until next Thursday.
01-20-2008, 06:47 PM
Down 2 lbs. 5 pounds to my Valentine's goal!
01-20-2008, 08:26 PM
