But you are doing so awesome!!
I feel that way sometimes and I am NO WHERE near what you have accomplished. I just wait til in the morning and after my morning walk I feel so much better and so much more empowered by what I am doing for myself.
You should drink your water cause if you dont your body will hold it anyways. Just drink all you can and stop an hour and a half before you weigh. You should have expelled the excess by then. :)
Keep going girl!

Oh, hon! We all get like this sometimes. It's just a down day. Keep your head up! Look how much you've already lost! That's just amazing and it's inspiring for me to keep going. =)

Just keep reminding yourself it will pass. Its just temporary. Think of how wonderful and confident you will feel when you reach your goal. Daydream of all the cute clothes you will be buying. If you havent done so already set some goals and rewards for yourself. It will give you something to look foward to and encouragement to keep going.
Mine are
160lbs: Cute Nike Sports Watch
150: New boots.
140: New sassy glasses. (I hardly ever wear my contacts.)
130: Hair cut/color and new clothes!

You will feel better soon. :hug:

We all go through it- sometimes I go "I wish I could eat noral again" and realize what I did before was NOT normal...

I found taking a break from calorie counting or just take a day off from exercise and just relaxing really helped. Specially when I filled that time doing something I wanted to do- like playing with my pets and spending time with my hubby :D

This means that the big shed might be coming. As long as you are doing what u are supposed to do then you know you are in the green.

Keep up the good fight, you're going to see a loss soon.... promise. One thing I would do when this would happen was think of it like my body's way of saying "how badly do you want this? do you want it badly enough to wait it out?" and I would take it like a competition..... with myself.... like "heck yes, I want this!" and soon enough, there would be a loss. The other thing; where were you at the last time you weighed this weight? Could there be something holding you there? Go back to that time when you were at that weight.... what were you struggling with? Anything you need to "let go of?" Anything that may be a mental block? Write it out.... just sit down and write. See what comes out.

I'm sure its just a plateu and remember those are good things it means the fat cells are losing and resorting to holding onto water! Fight the good fight and you will WIN!!!

Going through the same thing, just want to see a loss but the number changes when it is darn well ready and not one second before. I helped a friend move yesterday and we all went out to a pizza buffet afterwards. I just wanted to eat what everyone else was eating. I didn't want to fuss and ask for special requests because I was fat and dieting. Well, my kids were protesting. Mom, stay strong, eat at the salad bar. There were no protein options, so I thought there was my out. My friend took up the protest and asked them to make a special request of 4 oz of chicken breast. They had chicken they used on their pizza so they cooked a bunch of chopped up chicken for my salad! Without that help, I probably would have eaten whatever.
All I can say is what is echoing through my own head today. My current loss is great but it is only the beginning. I could give up now or I can continue. My choice. I want to get to my goal. I will battle this plataue and it is only temporary. Normal will still be there when we are at goal. And by then we just might know what normal eating is!

Hang in there you are doing great. You have lost soooooooooo much already. Just think how much better you already feel and how much better you can feel. Go do something nice for yourself. Pedicure, quiet walk, read a good book.

Up to almost 64 oz so far....

I know this is silly, but I HATE taking pills. So I usually chugg down 20oz in the morning just taking my pills. lol.

Speaking of cute water bottles... look at SIGG. They have some really stylish ones. Very cute. Havent bought one cause I really like my ol' CAMALBAK... But I was definately considering one when I was in search of an "inspiring" water bottle. ;)

Dedge

Thats funny you mention SIGG I was just on their website. The one I liked has a screw on cap...I need somethign with a straw. I might look into the camelbacks though...I dont know why but i bring more with a straw hahahaha

asherdwn
07-14-2009, 12:41 PM
I really like my camelbak. Ive found the best selection is at Dicks Sporting Goods in store. If ordering online do it from the camelbak website. I really love my pop up straw. They have other top options... but the straw is the best, in my opinion.

Dedge
07-14-2009, 12:44 PM
I'll have to check out Dicks....(that didnt sound right!!)
hahahahahah Yeah, I def want one with a straw...SIGG is cute, but no straw. If im gonna pay a bit for a bottle I want one I will really use

Do you know if camelback has larger bottles then 25oz? I have a jug I got from walmart that holds 64oz....and thats easier to fill twice then something 4-5 times. I just want something cute! This is see-through blue....too bad it wasnt pink! hahahah

They have the liter better bottles which can hold a bit over 35 oz. But the only colors are Fire, Blue, Black, and Grey. I like the blue one...

A note on the Siggs, I think they are a love or hate thing. I bought a couple last year and ended up selling them on ebay. I couldn't get over the mild metalic taste (which might have been all in my head). I have a nalgene right now, but appreciate the info on the camelback I was debating one of those because of the straw thing!!!

Dedge

Thanks for the heads up! I think I will go with the Camelback

I purchased the Camelback this past Friday. I love it. Mine is pink. I noticed they were the same price at Dicks and Cabellas

The pink one only comes in .75L. So you would have to fill it up four times instead of three. I am going to get a bigger one today... and just use both. lol.
