Weight Loss Support - The woosh fairy must be dizzy, she circled back to me again this week!

The woosh fairy has to be dizzy this week going around in circles. She hit me again with a 3.2lb loss!! :yes::yes::yes::yes::yes::yes: I was so excited to lose 3lbs last week, she gave me even more this week!

I was so excited, you have no idea!! I couldn't believe it. I expected the scale to punish me this week for a good loss last week.

I'd love to chalk it up to my fine tuning of my calories vs. exercise but we know it's not that easy. So I'll just ride the wave and hope it continues for as long as possible.

(If you see me here crying next week, please smack me. :frypan: I'll have no right.)

Thanks everyone!! I get so excited to tell you all!!

I was at my doctor's office and saw another patient there who weighs in on Mondays (sometimes I see her, sometimes I don't). I kept waiting for her to acknowledge me but she was talking to someone. So she finished her conversation and I said "Hey, how are you doing?" and she looked like a deer in headlights and said she didn't even recognize me standing there and I was so skinny now!! (I assured her and you that I'm NOT skinny lol) I can't remember the last time I saw her but it hasn't been that long! I had the best morning so far, whooo hoooo.

Thank you all for being so supportive and motivating! Love you guys!! :grouphug:

Thanks everyone!! I have had such a good day, I swear this awesome loss made me run harder on my C25K run. Success breeds more success!! I keep trying to figure out how I got such a good loss but I might just let sleeping dogs lie! Don't want to mess with success!!

Compared to 300+ pounds you sure are skinny - woohoo for the whoosh fairy!

And send her my way, will you? My body is being resistant to dropping weight while nursing, despite clean eating and a fair calorie deficit. I know it will catch up eventually, but I'd love to see another two pounds gone instead of bouncing between 169-171 as I did all this past week (I was sick and still am, I think that was at least part of it).

As for how you got such good losses - you stayed on plan! Seriously, consistency on your plan long term makes the weight go away. It doesn't do it linearly, but it WILL shed eventually. You stuck with it and it paid off in two great spurts.

LOL yes, you are right. Compared to what I was, I surely am skinny. But I don't see myself like that (at all) and feel like people look at me like I'm so big now, they'd never believe I already lost over 100lbs.

And you are right, I know it's because I stayed on plan. But I stayed on plan the days I only lost .2 or gained .6! I guess the part that matters is I trusted my plan, myself and my exercise. But it sure was hard!! My first instinct is to throw in the towel like I'm a failure (135lbs down is hardly a failure no matter what way I spin it) but I know better than that now. I just hate that my brain goes there still!

I'll send the woosh fairy to all of you, I just want one more visit from her next week to plant me in the 180s. Then I will share. :D Now THAT would be a miracle!

Hope you feel better soon. :(

Good work Elvis. It looks like we will never be in the same decade. You'll be out of those 190s before I even get a look in!

You can blame Novus, thnknthin, and theShiv. They are hanging a steak on a stick and making me chase it. They are almost in the 170s but I'm not stopping til I catch them, even if it's in the 120s!

Your weightloss on your trip was amazing. I could never have maintained my weight, nevermind lost weight on a vacation/business trip. You inspire me, Ian!

Elvis..... I am so happy for you. These last 3 weeks have been wonderful for you and your journey. Its kinda like poker, you had a few bad hands and now you are getting dealt the aces :) Aces for a person who is so deserving!

Thanks everyone!! I feel silly starting threads about my weekly weigh-ins but you are all so sweet when you read my whiny ranty threads, I figure I should share the good ones too. :) And it's further proof of miracles and that the woosh fairy surely does exist!

And Sue, what a sweet analogy, thank you!! This scale has driven me batty for the past month so I feel like I'm finally collecting my pay! But I'd rather get some real aces and real $$$ for new clothes lol! Talk about being selfish, I'm a brat! I think I did see a thread around here where we can bet on weightloss. Lost weight, picked up a gambling problem!:yikes::yikes::yikes:
