Hello Ladies! so i had a horrible weekend. work work and more work, and i have to be back at work again tomorrow. I went out with a couple of friends for drinks which turned into a night of drinking and dancing. i feel that the alcohol is still retaining water in my body. hehe... but i don't know why i have started binging. i used to be very good before but now if i see crisps i'll eat one, or if i see bread i'll take a bite. does this happen with you guys commonly? and if yes what may be the solution of this. my sister feels that i should take a day off and eat whatever i feel like eating so its out of my system. what do you guys think? anyways hope everyone had a good weekend!

09-13-2010, 08:42 AM
At least for me, if I take a whole day off to eat whatever I want, it kind of sabotages me for the rest of the week. I don't feel good afterwards, and I feel like I failed myself. (But, I'm a hypocrite too. Yesterday didn't happen. Period. No gym, and ate junk food instead of meals all day. Almost a whole family size bag of chips and McDonalds nuggets and fries. I feel blah today.)

What to do instead? I don't ever deny myself what I'm craving. I allow myself to have it, but I have to know the nutritional information, because the diet plan that works for me is calorie counting. As long as I log my calories in excel at the end of the day and KNOW what I put into my body, I can say I made an informed decision and that's what I wanted. And sometimes that number when I hit "total" at the end of the day makes me say "Ok, that piece of cake wasn't really good and look what it did to my number for the day. It wasn't worth it, so I won't do it again." Or... "I liked that treat, I'll have to budget for it again in the future."

Hello team!!!! I didnt have the best weekend either but Im still working toward my goals. Cant give up. I took cycling class over the weekend and I am soooooo sore wow! Thats a great workout but golly I always have to push myself to take that class lol. Im hoping to have a better week.

Ladies you can pick up the pieces and keep moving. Im cheering you both on!!!

09-13-2010, 11:50 AM
Good morning ladies! Ive kinda been mia the last week or so, but Im back now, and even though last week was stressful and horrible for my diet, Im back and stronger then ever. yay me!

Sameen I think this happens to all of us, and from the sounds of it, eating a bite here and there really isn't going to kill you diet for the day or week. I think having a few bites here and there is loads better then having a binge day.

brooksrm :hug: <--- hugs for you feeling blah.

Matilda I've always wanted to try that, but im too afraid I'll start it and then pass out in the middle of the class. lol.

I think we've all had out struggles the passed week, but at least we're all still in it!! :carrot:

09-13-2010, 12:01 PM
Grats on the cycling class, Matilda!

Sameen, I think you might be emotionally eating, what do you think? Your new job sounds stressful, it might be a part of the extra snacking - since you said you were usually good with avoiding that. Try to force yourself to pause before you snack, and focus on your body's signals, "Am I hungry? or am I bored/stressed/etc? or both?" :hug: That's tough, but I've gotten better at it when I find myself walking past the fridge and pausing a few times to look inside (as if I didn't already know what is in there :rolleyes:).

I'd be careful about the eating "whatever I feel like", especially if you do decide to do a off-plan day. One snack or meal might not slow your losses down over a week period, but a whole day just might depending on what/how-much you had, so keep that in mind, k? :hug:

Good luck, Ladies! :dust:

09-13-2010, 12:55 PM
ZAN- according to our weekly weigh ins youve made it to onderland!!!!!! WTG congrats thats HUGE

09-13-2010, 01:40 PM
Hey ladies
I had a horrible eating day yesterday, all i did was snack on things like pizza and chips but today, I am going to get back on plan and do kickboxing tonight!

So this weekend I found out something really weird. One of my friends asked how much I weighed and I told her and she thought I weighed way less. I asked another friend what she thought I weighed just to see what she said and she was in the same range of guessing. I really don't understand that though because I don't feel like I look smaller I feel like I look like more than I weigh. Have any of you ever asked someone how much you look like you weigh??

Brook- What ever happened on your dates??? how were they??

09-13-2010, 02:13 PM
Jess- that happens to me ALL the time. WHen I tell people how much I weigh they never believe me for some reason they seem to think I weigh less than 200lbs. As the saying goes we are our worst judge:) I personally wouldnt think you weighed 160 something you look way smaller!

09-13-2010, 06:07 PM
Oh, the first date went really well. Talked and laughed for 2 hours over a really nice dinner. The second one bailed on me and I haven't heard from him but I'm ok with that cause I wasn't getting the good vibe from him after we swapped numbers. Here's hoping for a second meeting with the first guy though!

09-14-2010, 11:27 AM
HEllo team Im hoping to have a better week. I have school work family life and everything but Im trying to stay on track and stick to my plan. Im down from yesterday at 231 so Im moving in the right direction.

How are your workout plans going?

09-14-2010, 12:25 PM
Thank you, Matilda! :hug:
Now if only I can manage that at an official WI, :lol:!

Keepin' busy here, tryin' to impress the boss. Dunno if it is workin', :dizzy: but at least I'm learning something new to put on my resume.

09-14-2010, 10:15 PM
Hi ladies!

Sorry i've been MIA a bit! Working out of town in Puerto Rico just kinda gets crazy... way to go on the weigh ins this week ladies! Our team has placed high since the beginning, so keep it up this week :)

Zanheltangia - Awesome loss this week!! Good luck with the work stuff! I'm sure you'll impress the heck outta them!

brooksrm - So glad the date went well! That is awesome!! Looks like a lot of us have had those days this week with the junk.

Matilda - Go girl, that is so awesome staying on track during all that school and everything else you have going on!

Jessica - kickboxing sounds like fun!! Do you go to classes or do a video?

Micky - welcome back! I'm back too :)

Sameen - Yes, I have that happen too! For me it's during busy work weeks, like this week. I'm training for five days and it's all I can do to go by the food court and grab something before crashing on the bed.

Things are a bit crazy! I've got to stop eating CRAP. I am going to try to go by the supermarket. No, I am going by the supermarket. Tomorrow. Fried chicken tonight and pizza last night will NOT help my weigh in on Sunday. The good thing is I burn about 2800 calories on days when I teach without even exercising!! So that's a plus :)

Hope everyone's doing well and staying on plan!

09-15-2010, 11:12 AM
Not that "awesome", Trav, ;) I cheated and took two weeks to show that after all! :lol: But thank you! :hug:

Barely a blip on the boss' radar. Sucks when you are trying to increase a rating on a performance appraisal. :p

09-15-2010, 09:27 PM
Matilda- Isnt it crazy?? thanks though:) :hug:

Brook- yay im glad it went well! did you guys set a date yet?

misstraveller- puerto rico? lucky! your job sounds like a lot of fun! I feel ya with eating crap its just so hard to stop after you start, at least for me, its a downward spiral.

So ladies, I went and bought an outfit today but I am still not too sure about it. I want to possibly wear it for my second or third date with this guy that I recently went out with but maybe its too much? I'm really indecisive now. I'm attaching some pictures of the front and back, tell me your honest opinions because I'm on the fence about it :dizzy:

09-16-2010, 10:21 AM
nice nice nice! Your outfit is nice and it doesnt show too much I love the color of the shirt

09-16-2010, 01:25 PM
Leggings, right?

I think it looks fine for what I can see from the pictures. Totally up to you.

I don't understand the legging-thing that's in style nowadays. They've got some patterned to look like jeans, what the heck? :?: But go for it if you like it! :carrot:

09-17-2010, 09:03 AM
Have a great Friday, everyone!!!

09-17-2010, 12:19 PM
Hello team I wi at 231.0 today lately ive been ranging from 229-231 so i know if i stay op ill be firmly int he 220s next week. Good luck on sundays weigh in team!!

09-17-2010, 12:32 PM
Huh. Well, I better WI tonight as I won't be near 3FC until late Monday at the rate my weekend is running away with me. :dizzy:

09-17-2010, 05:24 PM
Hi Gals, haven't checked in in a while...I'm hanging in there, but have hit my dreaded 10 year plateau number. Seems like everytime I get down to 160 (this is the 3rd time) I "allow" myself some slack and that turns into a huge gain...Ug. I know it is mostly mental, but its really been a tough one for me. I think once I'm even down like 5 lbs it will shake me off of that mental block, but in the mean time, I feel like I'm in limbo.

On another note, so glad its the weekend. Going to try and plan some active time and not center my life around food so much. Why is that so hard for me?!

Hope you ladies all have a great weekend!

09-17-2010, 11:07 PM
So, I've fallen off the face of the earth this week. Haven't been thinking about food, just eating it. Haven't been recording what I eat, and I know I've eaten BAD BAD BAD this week. Two excuses: new job with crazy hours, and TOM. But dangit, I don't like how I'm feeling, and the blues are coming back from the breakup SIX WEEKS ago. Stuck at home tomorrow with nobody to hang out with this weekend, and the house is full of junk food (I'm not the buyer of it, so I'm not allowed to be the thrower-awayer of it either. Sigh. I swear my fam keeps an eye on the trash.) Going to try to work some activity in, but I just feel so blah and unmotivated!

09-18-2010, 12:19 PM
Hoping for a good wi tomorrow. Today I wi at 231.6 I think I can get to 225 by the end of this week coming.

09-18-2010, 05:22 PM
okay, so Im very out of the loop right now, but i heart Leggings, Jeggings!! I seriously have like five pairs of them. lol. And I pair them with boots and Im so in love with the look.

I lost two pounds this week, but then TOM struck early on, and yeah.

09-19-2010, 12:50 AM
Thanks for the advice everyone im going with a different outfit that I bought today because we are going somewhere different I guess.

good luck with WI tomorrow everyone :)

09-19-2010, 12:14 PM
Hello ladies, sorry i have been MIA for the past week. I just didn't get the time to log on and no time to get on the scale either. so i got ont he scale today and i had put on 2 pounds:( maybe because its tom or because i have started stress eating a lot. i don't know what is happening. This is the first time i have shown a gain since i've started my weight loss journey. i'm so angry with myself. I could have stayed on plan but the binging is killing me, but a gain was so unexpected. i'm just regretting not having pasta rather than binging, which i might add were not even of real fatty foods. i wouldn't have had an issue with a 2 pound gain if i had had a good plate of fetticinni :( will it be like this all my life? a bit here and there and a 2 pound gain:(
i will write a nice long message for everyone tomorrow. I'm sorry once again girls for not being active, all of you are so kind and nice to me, just going through a crummy time.

09-19-2010, 04:23 PM
Hey guys,
I'm very surprised to find that my weight was actually down this week, despite the crazy eating and snacking! Hurray! Had a downer day yesterday, but today I'm going out with friends and out for dinner with that guy from last week :) So far I'm liking the new job but I know the hours are going to be stressful. Going to try to pack healthy lunches at least 3 days next week as my goal.

09-20-2010, 10:34 AM
Happy monday team!

Today I wi at 229.6 which for a monday is GREAT! Im so use to messing up over the weekend and being in the 220s on a monday only means one thing for me. Ill be in the 220s firm come week end!!!!!

Hope you are all great. I dont get to check in much school has started back and between that work and family Im swamped

09-20-2010, 10:57 AM
Sameen:hug: we've all been where your at right now. I just got off my TOM and I gained a pounds as well. we just have to remember whats done is done, and to move forward!!

brooksrm yay for the weight loss and the new job!! :carrot:

Matilda08 Congrats on being in the 220's!! :carrot:

so I weighed myself this morning and I weighed in at 205.6. I kinda figured i would gain some weight back after TOM and not really watching what I was eating, Im just glad it wasn't an insane amount!

But now that TOM's over Im back on track! :dust:
IM getting the p90x soon, and I know it's going to be intense, but i need to change up my workout routine. and i want to lose weight and tone up pretty quickly, I just hope i can stick with it!! :wl:

I hope everyone has a great day!

09-20-2010, 02:35 PM
I am slipping up on the routine WIs. That's a key reason why I join these BL threads, so I get a WI each week, but I am missing them!


I need to get my act together! :o

09-21-2010, 01:30 PM
Lets go team we can do this! SO far we arent doing bad we are losing and we can keep it up!!!!

09-21-2010, 05:28 PM

It's pretty quiet in here.

Have a nice Wednesday all, see ya Thursday. ;)

09-22-2010, 04:27 PM
Hey ladies! Sorry i've been MIA. Sick with ear infection and throat infection. Good for weight loss since I can't swallow whole foods :) Antibiotics are awesome, and I'm on the mend. How's everyone doing? Great job this week ladies!!

09-23-2010, 10:13 AM
Oh no, I hope those infections clear up for you quickly, Miss. :hug:

09-23-2010, 12:00 PM
misstraveller Im sorry you feel bad! :hug: Im sick as well. Sinuses. My head feels like is going to explode.

As for being sick, I haven't lost any weight this week. I'm hoping to lose at least a pound before weigh in, here's to hoping. lol. Im getting the P90X tomorrow, and IM excited but scared as well.

I heard it's intense but I want to lose the weight and tone up and I heard this program is amazing.
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!:carrot:

09-23-2010, 01:51 PM
I really need to get my act together and get some exercise going, walkin' a few miles once or twice a week is not cutting it.:rolleyes:

09-24-2010, 10:22 AM
I've got another insane weekend lined up and it is FRIDAY once again.



09-24-2010, 10:48 AM
Happy Friday Team, Today I Hit A New Low 227.6 Lets Hope It Sticks For Wi Wooohooo Lets Rock This Challenge!!!!!

09-24-2010, 10:48 AM
Happy Friday everyone!! Hope everyone is going to have a great day!!

Matilda congrats on the success!!!

09-24-2010, 12:27 PM
Feel better misstraveller and Mickeypnd!! I think there is something going around because im starting to feel like im getting sick, maybe its the change in weather?

So I am not letting myself step on a scale until weigh ins on Sunday I don't think I will be happy if I do now. I went on a date last night and we went to the Melting Pot and it was amazing!!! I have never been there so it was all new to me and a lot of fun, and lots of calories im sure but I am off to workout now and get back on track!!

Have a good weekend everyone!

09-24-2010, 03:12 PM
I've got a friend that threatens me with the Melting Pot experience. I just got to go visit him. I've never been, myself. ;)

09-26-2010, 01:54 PM
It IS quiet in here! I've had a really busy week with work and the kiddo has been sick again and I fell off plan. Had a little gain this week, but not too bad considering how much junk I ate. I'm going to spend some time today planning the whole week's meals and going shopping and doing food prep for healthy snacks. I hope everyone's WI go well today.

09-26-2010, 02:46 PM
Hello team just popping in to say hello and good luck weighing in!!

09-27-2010, 11:14 AM
These past two weeks have just flown right on by.
September is almost over, how is everyone doing? :hug:

09-27-2010, 05:48 PM
I know I cant believe that it is already fall and its almost october its so crazy how time flies at certain times!

Im really surprised I had a loss this week because I ate like crap i had nachos and pizza on saturday too. I hope to be better with my eating this week ugh. I feel like i have just had a hectic week last week! Hopefully this week will be better and include a lot of exercise and good food choices :)

09-27-2010, 06:52 PM
Hi ladies, I am so sorry I've been MIA. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been taking a step back and reevaluating my whole eating/exercising/weight loss thing. I've decided that right now I just need to work on maintaining my weight. I really have to wrap my mind around how to live at this weight (i.e. how often to exercise, how many calories to eat, etc) before going forward. So, I am so terribly sorry, but is it possible to take myself out of the competition?

I hope you're all doing great and achieving your goals!

09-28-2010, 08:27 AM
Good luck, JenB! :hug:

09-28-2010, 02:30 PM
Hi team I hit a new low today 227.4. This year is going by so fast im aiming to get to 119. anything by 12/31 if not i wont be all sad especially if im close. lol

09-28-2010, 03:16 PM
Congrats, Matilda! :carrot:

09-29-2010, 12:10 PM
Hit another new low today 226.0!!!!!

09-30-2010, 12:05 PM
Congrats Matilda!!!

Down to 155.8 today, sooo close to my mini goal of 155!!! woohoo!!!

I can't believe its already Thursday!! woww!!!

where is everyone? its so quiet in here?

09-30-2010, 12:33 PM
I think I can hear crickets... Nope, that's just the A/C company next door hammering away.

Grats, Jess and Mat!

I've been having an Off-Plan past two days... Is it off plan if I still track? Hm, I'll refer to it as my Excess-Food-Period. HAHA!

09-30-2010, 12:43 PM
I have had off plan days for the past couple days too, its just so hard to be out with friends and make good decisions but i think if you are still tracking and aware of whats going on so thats a good thing at least you arent ignoring it!

10-01-2010, 10:14 AM
It's October, how are we doing so far this month? :lol:

10-01-2010, 10:27 AM
Hello team im still trucking along!! Have a fab weekend

10-01-2010, 10:56 AM
Hey ladies!

Great job on the last weigh in!! Awesome job Matilda and Jessica!!

It's been kinda crazy on my end too, so glad October is here, it's my favorite month! My eating has been off this week and I started P90X, which I know is going to lead to an initial gain. URG. That's OK though, it will pass, hopefully quickly. Have you guys tried P90X?

10-01-2010, 11:48 AM
I'm looking at a pretty bad gain this weigh in, just forewarnin', ;)

I'm sorry that I keep slipping up on the WIs. I think that if I join one of these challenges again that I'll need to post my WIs a lot earlier than the weekends. That's a busy time for me right now. :(
