Uilleanne :welcome: to the thread :)

Underwater ... I credit 3FC for my success back in 2010 also. I was faithful to me and to the group of supporters that I met when I met Diana. She's a gem, but then I lost focus and for whatever reason I just can't keep it going. I'll do good for a while but then I'm back to where I started. :(
You look great :high:

Kukkie good to see you over here. :hug:

I'm excited for August to come. Hoping that I will get out of the low 190's once and for all :D

Hi folks. Still chipping away at my regain. I had a couple of bingey days but I seem to have pulled it back together. And ... I had a couple of dates with a really groovy woman who seems to think I'm pretty hot. So, if that isn't motivation to stick to my plan, I don't know what would be! :D

Hi Mary :welcome: to the thread :) Good job on your weight loss so far :high:

carter, I don't remember what you started the month off at but I will say 168 is pretty great. I know it's not the 150's but you'll get there. You're a go git'er, you've got this and now with new motivation. :)

Well ending July at 189.6 which is exactly what the scale said at the end of July. :shrug: How weird but I'll take it. :) I am gonna cross my fingers for a new low of 2013 tomorrow. I've have got to kick the 190's once and for all. :crossed:

Best of luck to US ALL for a number that we would love to start the new month out with :goodluck:

I'm in. I posted in this thread for awhile last year, but then I got sick and backslid and stopped visiting 3FC altogether. I'm trying to climb back into the saddle, but I'm not weighing right now. At the moment I just want to focus on feeling good and making good choices and not beating myself up about how much I weigh. If I get through August without another backslide, I'll weigh myself and put my ticker back up.

I know just as well as the rest of you that this community is essential to success, so I am committed to checking in. This thread is a great way to make sure I do it.

Well I did get back into the 280s today, but still .2 above where I was, so no 10 lb star for my weigh-in this week. I'll get it next week.

I'm annoyed with the WW weight tracker anyhow because it says you can weigh any time in the week, but when I enter my weight for today, it just deletes my entry from last Saturday. I guess what they mean is you can weigh-in any time LATE, but you can't weigh-in early.

I'll be in Atlanta for a wedding this weekend. The first of 3 major events in August. I will NOT eat my way through the weekend! My hotel is right next to a grocery and a subway (so weird to be renting a hotel room in my old neighborhood) so I'll be good. Tomorrow, I want to make time to visit my old favorite running trail. I can't run right now, but it'll be a decent walk anyhow.

Well I'm proud to say that for the first time in forever I was a lower weight than my end of the month weigh in. I was 188.2 this morning and quite happy. I am trying to pay attention to what I put in my mouth and so far it is working. What I have at the house that is healthy to eat is dwindling down so I'll have to be super careful the next three days, focus and do a lot of talking to myself to stay on point. Wish me luck.

Thanks Ashley, and you know you can go ahead and take that 10lb mark, claim it ... it is yours.

NSV for me ... those of you that have known me over the years know that I absolutely love store bought birthday cake icing, the white real icing not the butter cream. Well we went to my Auntie's this evening and one of the younger cousins was celebrating his 13th bday and I was offered cake and ice cream along with the kids and I said, NO!!! :yay: and then a place was made for the boys since they didn't come. I peaked in and looked at it and almost stuck my finger in the icing but NOPE. I am so so proud of me. I think I can really do this. :carrot: Maybe I have grown up a little in the last week ;)

Hi everyone! I check my weight twice a day, everyday. I'll only post my morning numbers. I've been pretty stuck for most of June and July, I've only lost 10 pounds in that time. Before that I was averaging 7 a month. I'm annoyed that the scale has stopped moving. I have plans and if one more doctor says 'Lose weight' I'm going to scream. Apparently a 40 pound loss isn't enough to stop them hounding me. Oh well, I sound like a negative nelly right now but I promise I am a chipper, happy camper.

Thanks Caroline :)

I stayed the same today 188.2 I'm not mad though because that's three days in the 180 's which for me is a current record :D I think the problem is I didn't drink enough water yesterday because usually I am up a few times at night and that didn't happen last night. I know that's not good but that's how I can tell :) my fbs was high this morning I can't remember what it said but I know it was high.

I had another food NSV ... the kids had potato salad for lunch another weakness of mine and instead of me eating a Dixie cup of it (that's my small taste of it) because I can eat a whole bowl ... I cleaned the container with a napkin and threw it away. :yay: to me again.

Kaitie :welcome: I had a doctor once that kept telling me I was obsese drove me nuts. But how tall are you? Maybe your weight isn't where they'd like it to be for your height, idk, just a thought :)

Caroline two dozen cupcakes :drool: I would have had to stay out of the room also. Came home tonight and my son had made a lemon cake at first I thought it was cornbread and I thought why did he do that to me ... but when I saw him putting frosting on it ... I really thought WHY IS HE DOING THIS TO ME :rofl:

Shyleia the scale in the kids bathroom does that use to drive me nuts so I bought a new one for me :D

Looks like everyone has a downward weigh in going so far so we are ALL off to a great start for August ... I am saying to us ALL we can do it and we will MAKE August a great month :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Gmornin ladies-
Sorry for the absence but im hoping to get back on track a.s.a.p.
I left my husband on the 23rd of July after almost 28yrs of marriage. Our 14yr old daughter and i moved into my parents basement. Its going to take some adjusting but its been a long time coming and the kids are good with my decision and said their selves it should have happened a looong time ago. Our oldest quit talking to us about 2yrs ago because of problems his dad caused and my 19 yr old was never around anymore because he didnt want to be around his dad and the same with our daughter so that meant i never got to see my kids anymore and they are the only good thing that man ever gave me and are my life so... i did what i had/needed to do and i will be fine and my kids are back in my life!

Hi susie great to see you it's been a while ... :congrat: on the 8lbs gone :D is that 8 pounds since 7/27?

Joy I'm glad to see you :hug: If your happy I am truly happy for you. :hug:

I got up this morning to 187.6 that's .6 down from yesterday and Thursday since they stayed the same. I'll admit when I got in here last night I was hungry but not starving so it was ok. I usually eat around 7 but we had church service last night and I packed a light dinner and ate it on the way there because I was hungry so eating before 6:15p is not a good idea for me.

Missing you all that haven't checked in yet ... Hope to see you soon :hug:

No weighing in til Monday, but today I took a nice long walk outside (for me, anyhow!) - normally I do my walking inside, where sun and nature and my allergies can't beat me up :P I felt good afterwards! Plus I went ahead and measured my arms, my waist, and my thighs, just to keep track of that in the long run too. It wasn't as good as I could have hoped, but it also wasn't as bad.

Tomorrow I am making homemade pizza, with all sorts of healthy things added! I have been craving pepperoni like crazy. :3

Hello love2b150! Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'm 5 foot 2. My doctor has recently set me to the task of measure my blood sugar 4 times a day and they sent me to a dietician who is having me monitor my carb intake. All this in the hopes that I will get pregnant and not get gestational diabetes. So, since it's going to be at least until the middle/end of September before we can get moving on the pregnancy thing I now have 6 more weeks to drop as much weight as I can. (and hopefully that doctor will stop saying 'lose weight!') I would love to see 155 but we'll see. I'm starting to think that my carb levels are what has been slowing my weight loss. Yesterday my carb intake was around 110 g and I finally dropped a pound. Hopefully with my close monitoring I'll get rid of this extra weight faster. Happy Sunday!

Happy August. A few days late, but I am back. I'm having a really hard time jumping back on the wagon. But I weighed in this morning at 202.5. Have had a good breakfast and lunch, so yay me. I've been in some sort of emotional funk with stuff going on at home. My husband is still off from work with his yet to be diagnosed medical issues. His self-pity is starting to drive me bonkers. I'm doing everything I can not to let my eating reflect my moods. Peanut has not been sleeping well, which by default means I have not been sleeping well either. I'm so tired.

Hi :wave: to everyone that I haven't yet talked to.

I've been about 80% on plan this weekend. Not great, but better than most of my weekends lately, so I'm calling it a success. I adopted a rescue mutt a couple months ago and we walk twice a day, so I've been exercising regularly. I also need to go to the gym this week and renew my membership so I can start lifting weights again.

Right now I'm headed to my sister's house to swim with her kids. It won't be much exercise, but it will be fun.

Kaitie, I pray that you don't get/have gestational diabetes when you get pregnant. :hug: Does diabetes run in either or your families?

I had gestational diabetes with my last four children. I did well with the first two just following diet and attempting to walk 20 minutes sometimes. With child #4 I had to do one shot of insulin at night. With child #5 I had to do two insulin shots a day, a.m. and p.m. Then last year I was diagnosed in March I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I haven't seen a nutritionist in forever so I just basically do everything on my own. I should probably check my level through out the day but I only have the test strips that I had when I had insurance and the last of my script so I only check my fbs.

Are you doing any type of exercise? When I was walking 3 miles a day 6 days a week I dropped 30lbs in a little over 3 months. I was also eating properly so that definitely helped me. I'm watching my carbs closely now and I know that is the only reason I am losing anything. I am a carb nut. White cake icing, Ritz crackers, potato salad, breads anything starchy and snacky is me. So I applaud myself for doing as well as I have these last days. I hope I can claim a week in the 180's. That will be a record for me ... haven't done that since 2010.

Thanks Kukkie hang in there :hug: I have started over so many times since January this year. I know you have the will and having Peanut does make it a little harder but YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO IT :hug: I got ya' Sorry about hubby and the self-pity. Maybe he's just tired of not being able to do anything. When you're use to getting up and out everyday it's relaxing and fun to be at home for awhile then it gets to be nerve wrecking because you just want out. Hang in there hopefully he'll be diagnosed soon and things will get better. :)

Well I hope I didn't mess myself up. I left church and my stomach was killing me so I came home and ate a can of chicken noodle soup with about 10 saltines. I do feel better and I know I won't eat anything else heavy the rest of the day.

Hope you all have a great Sunday :hug:

Hey love! Both my parents have Type Two diabetes but they weren't diagnosed until they were in their 60's--and both of them eat poorly. I thought that since I was losing the fat and eating better that I wouldn't have to worry about that. I guess not. I'm wondering now if that's why my first two IVF's didn't work. Anyway, I hope I can wrangle this in and get a hold on it so that it doesn't turn into anything else. Good luck with the 180's!!! I just love seeing the numbers on the scale go down.

After Mass this morning have been resting all day.Really needed it.Think I'll make every Sunday a rest day idk...

On a side note..I was so tired yesterday.Did 2 hours @ the gym then had to go take Mother and Aunt off (they never see me in anything other that exercise clothes lately:() My Aunt saw i was tired and said.."You are trying to have a life and do for us" ya think ? I learned my lesson from when Mother was in the hospital the last time..To don't forget about me,just eat mindlessly which will lead to depression.been down that road and don't like it.

Kaitie, prayerfully you won't have to worry about that since you are doing the right things. :) My last child was born in 2004 and I was told then to keep an eye on it and I really didn't. I ate like I wanted to and what I wanted to and acted like I didn't have a care in the world and I am paying for it now. I pray that I can kick this or at least get it totally under control. :) I love seeing the numbers go down also and usually by now I have done something to sabotage my efforts so I'm :crossed: that I can just keep the focus :)

Ona :woohoo: on the 5lbs gone :high: Whew to the gym twice a day :dizzy: you have got to be warn out. :hug: Please do make Sunday your rest day. I try to do that also, so that when I come home from my Auntie's which is our stop after church I don't have to do anything. Here lately I've had to iron my uniforms because I don't get to it on Saturday but I would like to put an end to that also :D Please don't forget about YOU :hug: It's good to see you :)

My daughter and i came to nova lasnite to spend a cpl days with my oldest son n his wife. He is off the next 2 days and is going to take his sister shopping at the mall while i relax at the pool for the day. Tonight i will meet my d.i.l.s mother for the first time and im a bit nervous. But it is an important part of my new life so i will welcome every new experience. I have been working some farmers markets over the past cpl weeks for the same family my daughter works for and the money sure does help me get things moving. My classes are going well, i have 4 new students so we are slowly growing and thats exciting to me. As for the scale i was up a lb last week which all things considered and t.o.m. as well im just glad its not more. Hello to all the newbies and thanks for the support and encouagement from our regulars it is very helpful!

OMG this weekend was not on plan and the scale showed that in a big way this morning. Up 7.4 lbs from Thursday. Obviously there is a fair amount of water weight involved in that (which my swollen feet and ankles can attest to), but it begs the question: how much true weight is it possible to gain in 3 days? Hopefully not too much. Back on plan today and hoping to see some of this drop off fast. I will be thinking of this at the next wedding in two weeks and not going so crazy!

Evening y'all. It's a long weekend here in Canada, but we didn't do anything. Got stuck waiting for a contractor who basically ended up blowing us off; so not cool. Waste of a day. Missed my best friend's aunt's annual Civic Day BBQ, but hey good for me. No temptation, no messing up right? Except we had McDonald's french fries at lunch. Why? I couldn't tell ya. Had an early home-cooked dinner. And then it was hello nausea! Ugh. Missed my second cup of coffee this morning and I'm totally feeling it. I desperately want to drink it now but then I may not sleep, so tea it shall be.

Peanut slept well throughout the day, sort of... So I'm hoping he'll sleep well tonight. Has anyone ever heard of Wonder Weeks? Well he just went through one, leap of mental development that allows for more skills. Except every leap is preceded by a few weeks of fussiness. During that fussy period, he didn't sleep well, so in an effort to get everyone some sleep, we'd been bringing him into our bed (he's been sleeping in his crib since we brought him home). And lo and behold, now he wakes up in the middle of the night and doesn't settle unless he's cuddling with momma in her bed. Ahhhh, I created a monster!!

Good news? I weighed in this morning at 200.5 but I think the sodium from the fries may come back to haunt me tomorrow. Water water water! Have a good night!

Ashley you know that's (sodium) water. Give it two or three good days of water water water to flush it out and you'll be fine :)

Shyleia good job on your progress this weekend :)

Caroline yes win win it is :yay: you :)

Kukkie all five of ours slept under me at some point. Even to the point that when I'd put them in their crib I couldn't sleep. So the monster I created was me :lol: It's ok I feel like whatever works do it. It's nothing more crazy to than to have the baby crying and you start to cry too ... whew I've been there too :) Nice weigh in today :)

Well I didn't do the greatest after I got home which makes me :mad: with me :mad: I have to keep on a routine or I make mess of things. I ate a lot of what I haven't had in a long time. My son made wings and this hot hot sauce that he puts on them and though I don't eat the skin on them (blah) I still ate 6 wingettes and the sauce is not free of sodium or even reduced. I also ate two yeast rolls :nono: I know better but that's what happens when I don't come straight home and don't eat when I am supposed to.

My scale is so shifty. Are they all like that? I have a ritual I suppose. First I turn it on and let it zero out and then a second time then I lean on the wall as I gently get on and put my feet right on the little silver pads and hope no one in the living room hears it creek. And I usually try to get on just once or I will drive myself batty like today. I get on and it says 279.6 (bummer lost .2) I get one again 278.4!! (yippeee!). I get on again 279.0 (sadness) Stupid scale! Sometimes I really despise that point number!


Thank you for the welcome Hamlette and love2b150 :)

My scale is weird too, so yeah, I have a ritual. I usually get on once, step off, let it go back to 0. Then I put just a foot on (to kind of throw it off so it doesn't get stuck on a previous weight), then let it go back to zero. Then I get on again. I've found that it always changes from the first number, but it can get on and off as many times as I want and it will stick with the second number. So I always take my second weight.

Well I gathered my courage this morning and got on the scale. I know daily weighing is key for me, and I've been avoiding it long enough. The number (214) wasn't as bad as I feared, so that's something. I fully expected to be in the 220s.

15 pounds to get back to onederland. That's doable. I did eat a tiny piece of cornbread with my beef stew lunch, but it was completely gluten free, so I tasted it for my coworker who was trying out a new recipe. (It was good!) Not exactly on plan, but it didn't have any wheat, so I'm okay with it. Now I just have to behave myself when I go to the grocery store after work. The dog will drag me around the neighborhood after dinner, and we walked a couple miles this morning, so at least I'm getting some exercise in.

Our tims is beside a McDonald's and the drive thru at tims packed, so bacon egg bagel meal from McDonalds for breakfast it was... When I woke up this afternoon I weighed myself. 231.2 lbs.

I think one of the secret keys to weight loss is sleep. I don't sleep a lot. I have interstitial cysititis so I must get up every hour sometimes every 15 minutes to pee so I am always exhausted and weak and not able to do things I want to do.

I also have a disabled child so I only got 3 hours of sleep this morning. I layed on the couch until about 10am and weigh myself 279.0 :( and I did so well. However I know if I go back to sleep it will change. sure enough got up at 3pm and it's now 277.6 after about 3 hours of sleep. I am telling you I did not wake up and pee out 2 pounds. Nor did I sweat out or breath out 2 pounds. This phenomena baffles me. Because I really don't sleep for 9 hours straight and sweat. I have the ac on. Had I not gone to sleep my weight would still be up. And I pee alll day long (it's actually exhausting and I am so over it!). I just can't except it's all sweat. So that was a huge drop. And I am so dang tired and stressed. My body hates losing weight so this is really shocking. I have only lost easily twice before under extreme measures and I have been on every diet and always lose 7 pounds the first week and NOTHING the next 6 months. So this is actually weird that this is working this time around. Lord I hope this continues, I have something really important to do and little time left in my life to do it.

darn scale. So I knew I had to eat before I went to sleep or else I would be in pain from hunger rumbling and had a hotdog (gluten free, kosher, 100% blahblah fairy made etc) and it was only 100 calories (dh was going on an atkins diet and bought a bunch of hotdogs.. I hadn't had them in years) and it was easy. In the past I noticed these hot dogs stalled out my weight so I was nervous. I got up at noon and weighed in... down .2 . Bummer. My child just learned to open doors so she crawled into my bed and we snuggled until 4pm. I got up and weighed in again and it was 275.0! My mini goal! Then I got on again 276.6 wtf?? then 275.6... I got three of those so heck.. I'm giving myself that number. 2 lbs lost in 4 hours of snuggling. Weird! Then of course I put myself down by saying no one on the street is going to care or notice a 1 pound difference.

Off note. My kid opened my door 3 times last year and then forgot. a year later and she's doing it pretty consistently for a whole week. I am so proud of her I hate to get the child proof door handles. At the same time.. she nearly missed an intimate moment yesterday and two days in a row I am waking up with all the lights on the tv blaring, oranges all over the floor and everything thrown on the ground from the table etc. and I know that that is not a safe environment for her (again kudos on her attempting to fend for herself but she can't get the oranges open). And if she wasn't such a ninja attacking invisible objects in bed I would welcome snuggling with her more often :P

I think I forgot to check in yesterday. Sorry! I'm down about half a pound this morning, which makes me happy.

Still working on undoing last weekend, 1.6 left to go to get back to where I was last Thursday. I'm really hoping to see 1.8 drop off by Saturday morning to be officially back at 10 lost. We'll see though. I'm not sure how much more of this is gonna be water weight which will drop off easily, and how much is true weight that I'll have to work off more slowly.

invisagirl, when I used the scale that I no longer use anymore I would always take the highest number that I see twice to log it on here Kukkie and I use to have that problem all the time a couple of years ago. :dizzy: it does make you coo coo :) When I record the highest number and then see a lower number the following day twice still the highest for that day but lower than the day before it made me feel good (hope that makes sense) and -.2's are better than +.2's ... as I am often told slow and steady wins the race :D hang in there, you've got this :hug: invisagirl I'll have to look up what yo have. I've never heard of it, but I get up sometimes every 1.5 to 2 hours until around 3-4 a.m. most nights. The doctor said that when I get my sugar under control I won't have that problem. I also go to the bathroom every 30min to 1hr during the day most days and it seems to be getting worse. I don't sleep well either just starting taking a B12 vitamin trying to see if it will help during the day. I do find that if I can get at least 7.5 hours of laying down (of course not always asleep since I have to pee) my weight is a little better. A good loss for me is -3lbs over night from what I weighed before bed so I think we do sleep off and possibly pee and sweat off the added mess we take on during the time we are awake :shrug: :)

LOL Ashley, it's funny we all have our tricks for the scale :) when mine seems to be stuck I have one of the kids get on it to see what it will say :D

Caroline glad your weight was lower that is something to be happy about. You know I can just about guess the correct weight in the morning according to how my stomach feels, weird huh :shrug: How long are you giving yourself to lose the 15lbs. Maybe we can all do something together for the same time frame. Just a thought :) Keep it going Caroline :high: How did you prepare your sweet potato? Do you put anything on it? I tried a baked one on my Auntie's advice, :barf: I only like candied sweet potatoes and we know that's a :nono: for a diabetic, so I have to try a new approach ;)

Shyleia it's just water, it'll be gone in no time :hug:

Well almost his 190 on Tuesday 189.4 :eek: scary ... I don't want to see the 190's ever again. Today was 188.8. I've got to do better I know. I'm trying to do low carb and somedays it just seems impossible. Like invisagirl I am so tired of going to the bathroom it's not funny. It's to the point now I can't hold it at all. When I first think about it I need to go. The young lady that was working with me is no longer there and when I have to go to the bathroom I have to gather all of the children and sometimes it's just a tinkle drives me nuts. I am really hoping that this will get better.

yesterday I was 274.4 which is about the same. Today 276 :( I ate canned vegetable soup (progresso?) and two slices of pickles. I add salt to my soups too but this canned stuff isn't gonna work. I think all the sodium just isn't good for me personally and pickles are not going to be a good snack. I will have to find some other snacks that are low sodium. I didn't sleep well yesterday, lots of anxiety.

Kind of a bummer but yesterday was my weigh in. I am down 5.6 pounds for the week! Ok something powerful in my potato soup! I'm getting pretty tired of it for dinner though. walmart has a new 250 calorie gluten free meal thing of hummus and lentil crackers which was pretty good.. a little sour for me but good.

Today's weigh in 273.4 down almost 3 pounds from yesterday hence the bummer since I gained friday. oh well.I had one bad day of eating and boy was it hard to get back on track. Something about processed foods really triggers my cravings.

Evening peeps!

It's been a tough couple of days for me emotionally. Things not going so well. Hubby not being diagnosed and being home from work for almost two months has really taken a toll on him. It's taken a toll on him and on us. Sigh. He goes back to the specialist on Thursday, so hopefully we'll have some news. At this point, any news would be better than no news.

All that said, Peanut is still co-sleeping with me, because who knows why, but it's the only way he seems to sleep lately. I got him one of those cuddly blanket things, hopefully that'll make a difference.

I weighed in at 201.7 two days in a row and then this morning was back up to 203.1. I should probably add that I had dinner at MIL's last night. Rennie, you remember my MIL stories? Smh. Hubby and I had a great long walk today, so hopefully things will shed soon.

Amanda your weigh ins are awesome! Keep it going. Good luck with the boyfriend's parents!

Invisagirl down is still down! How old is your daughter (if you don't mind my asking)?

:wave: to everyone else!

I FINALLY got back below my starting weight for the month. This feels familiar... I once again am at 10lbs lost early in the week, with a wedding to attend later in the week. The scary part is the last wedding was supposed to be the one that would be easier to control my diet. Anyhow, after spending over a week recovering from the last wedding, I have something to keep in mind while making choices at this one.

invisagirl do you make your own potato soup? Please share the recipe :)

Kukkie yes :) I do remember the MIL stories, hope there's now a big up on the scale after eating there but you know it's just water so don't get discouraged. :hug: Also when I had to get BJ out of our bed what I would do is sleep on my pillow take the pillow case off and lay him on it in his crib it was my scent that helped him sleep. It's worth a try. :)

Joy take your time :hug: we're here :)

Ashley good job on the 10lbs gone :high:

Well I'm back in the 190's ... not really sad can't blame anyone but me. I'll get it together soon hopefully.

Hope all is well with all of you that haven't checked in yet :hug:

Had a rough weekend. House issues and emotions running wild lead to making terrible choices at a Mexican Restaurant. I was scared to weigh this morning but shockingly it said 255.8. So .2 up from Saturday morning. I'm still in shock. Hopefully all the water I've been guzzling will show good results tomorrow morning.

I'm down a pound in the last 3 days. At least its not up but I'd rather be binging to be honest. I actually was going to reward myself with food at 275 but I didn't end up doing it. I'm the kind of person who needs to see a reward for my efforts and I rarely lose weight after the first week hence I fall off the wagon. but I'm still doing ok and need to persevere. My new mini goal is 268 because that's what my husband weighs and I don't want to weigh more than him. He started juicing with me and has already given up and that makes me sad. He looks 18 months pregnant and it worries me as he is my only support in this world and it scares me I might lose him. He's already had high blood pressure as a teen and bad lungs etc. I'm trying to get him to make better decisions but I fear it isn't working.

yes I make my own potato soup. I don't know why I chose this as my dinner but it seems to be working out ok. I am finding whenever I eat processed foods I don't lose or gain. So maybe all those thousands of shakes weren't working for me though I do love drinking shakes and not having to think. Edited to add I did buy commercial hummus yesterday and probably had about 200 calories worth so maybe that's why I stalled. maybe I'm allergic to something stupid or it's all in my head and coincidence lol

potato soup..

1 large and 1 medium potato chopped finely so my body doesn't have to work too hard to digest it. Also makes them quick to boil in some water.

I make sure I skim the starch off the top of the water and drain.

If I'm lucky some onions (people keep stealing my onions dangit) not fried.. no oils

3 cups of 1% lactose free milk.
salt/pepper/chilli powder/garlic powder/ turmeric (for health reasons)
1 tbls butter for old times sake

it equals about 1000 calories. I then use a cup and a half at dinner which is about 330 calories and store the rest to use over the next few days.

After a few days when I have my soup I feel like I've stuffed myself painfully so sometimes I will not eat it all in one sitting.

It's been tough, but I'm working on consistency. I had a good day today at my official WW weigh in. I was 3.0lbs down. I hope I can maintain the momentum. It's hard because once I stop losing, I get discouraged and fall off the wagon.

Nagazim sorry about your weekend :hug: hope things are getting better :)

invisagirl good job on the pound down :) and thanks for the recipe. I love potato soup and have taken to making it all from a can just adding cream and margarine. My Mom makes it from scratch as have I but its quicker this way.

I'm still in the 190's fbs is still high but I think it's because I keep forgetting to take my metformin and once I get in the bed I don't want to get up because I know I'll get up to go to the bathroom and I still forget :dizzy:

Hope all is well with you all. Have a great evening :hug:

I'm at 190.6 this morning. Eating on point right for lunch and breakfast was on point. My fbs was still high this morning but less 30mg than yesterday. Hopefully I can eat a descent dinner and I can start my weekend off right .... in the 180's and with a fbs less than 150 that would really make my weekend :) I hope you all have a great Thursday. :hug:

Been kind of lurky this week. Been busy and my weight's just kind of hovering in the 289.somethings. Up a little bit today, back at 289.6. I was on plan the last couple days, but didn't drink much water. I've been drinking plenty today, but won't weigh again til Monday. Leaving tonight for Denver for another wedding. I feel like things will be easier after August, but in truth, I'll be battling my sister's gender reveal party and my birthday in September, Halloween in October, my sister's baby shower and Thanksgiving in November, and well, I typically just eat all December long. It's reality. There's always SOMETHING. Weight loss is keeping yourself in check in between all the somethings and managing how crazy you want to go (if at all) on those special events.

Have a good weekend ladies!

Happy Friday Everyone :wave:

Ashley you are busy busy ... Have a fun and safe trip. :) And you are right ---->Weight loss is (I'll say TRYING to KEEP) keeping yourself in check in between all the somethings and managing how crazy you want to go. I don't really have much going on right now other than working and getting my children ready for school and just other mother stuff, but it's still not easy somedays. Best of luck to you while you do everything :hug:

I managed to stay on point yesterday and it paid off this morning. I am at 188.8 so back in the 180's but the weekend is here. I am gonna try the cabbage soup thing again but don't know if I'm going to do the fruit day, even though it helped a ton (I think). I'm gonna have to go back and check my records.

I'll update later :D have a great day :hug:

My weigh hasn't move much in 6 days and even when I'm bad I'm still good so I am bummed. My weight loss for the week is still 4.8 pounds but that was all because I gained and lost the first-second day and then I stalled out. I should be in the 60's easily but I'm not :( 271.2

Hello! I survived Girl's Camp....I'm just glad that my schedule is freeing up again. I had 10 weeks off this summer and I've been so busy during each and everyone one of them so far, I'm glad the last two are not so hectic!

My weight is doing well. Mother nature interfered 6 days earlier than usual. That is very odd for me. I'm a 30 day cycle girl like clockwork so it threw my scale for a little loop. Not to bad though, only a pound, I'll be back to normal in a few days. My doctor prescribed metformin. I'm not happy about it. My fasting blood sugar levels were mostly 96. Only one point higher than it should be. I personally don't think I need it but I can't proceed with my ultimate goal until I've got two weeks of >95 under my belt. Grr.....

Hey lovelies ! Back from Florida and filled with renewed vigour. Decided i would face the wii fit when i got back. I've not been on in 97 days. I have to kill this demon in once and for all! The long and the short is a 39lb regain. This is no holds barred truth. I cannot cheat the wii. I have reset my new goal for 175lbs. As so many people told me I was too skinny at 153 I thought I'd look at 175 and then re-adjust by 5lbs once i get there. I'm not upset, I truly am ok. I think around 15lbs is muscle. I truly work out hard and have done so for a year now. The rest is laziness and a lack of focus. I am committed and am weighing in daily from now on. Todays weight was 191, down 1lb from yesterday. Look forward to doing this with you all x

*hugs all around*

Was down 3.8 this morning (so a total of 20.2) which was an incredible surprise, I didn't realize I was having such a good week. But I guzzled my water, ate within my calories, and did a bunch of walking plus other exercising so I guess that worked? Forward momentum is such a funny thing, sometimes it's hard to really accept it!

Grrrr. Couldn't use my phone while out of country. Not great food choices made. Next time I bring Luna bars with me so I don't eat a bag of chips and chocolate for a tide over lunch when forced to have something while waiting for a ride. I think a good portion is not drinking my water needed. Stupid. I was so close to my goal now I am almost 8lbs away.

:wave: Everybody..

Just got out of the hospital last night so things have been crazy around here. WI @ 183.4 this morning.(w/o exercising for about 2 weeks).Thought i would have been down cause of all the stuff i had to take for a colon test :dizzy: But overall,the most important thing is i held it together with the food choices i made while in there...ordering salads,sending stuff back,etc..

Me and my brothers and sister worked together to keep all this from Mother and it worked :D I would never call her from the hospital phone only my cell phone.She would asked me why i wasn't coming over and I'd always come up w/something.I hated to lie,God forgive me but she's too sick too be worried about me.

Before i went in,i was working out just feeling bad.Working on getting my strength back :sumo:

Anyway, despite that unfortunate choice of wording I love playing my wii, it doesn't even feel like exercise most of the time.

199 today. Diagnosed with hypothyroidsm (who knew?) after some routine blood work last week, so this is my third day of taking 25mcg of Cytomel. I'm not even really sure what hypothyroid is...besides the vague internet descriptions I'm getting...but anyone here dealing with this first hand?

Last semester starts Monday then I'm done done done. I'm pretty sure the job I'm at part time will want to hire me for a full-time position after graduation, but I do want to see if other options are out there.

Well hope someone has some advice or a kind word, hopefully I'll see a big weight dip tomorrow morning. Good night friends

Kaitie I agree with you on the "OH" I don't know who thought of that. Just like when it tells you how old you are. Most times my kids get some ridiculous number, smh :D

Sam have fun :) and just keep your head up and continue to smile even when you don't want to :hug: I'll be happy when it stops telling me I'm obese :)

Amanda I have heard people on here (other threads in the past) talk about hyper-thyroidism but I don't know anything about it, sorry. Hope you get some answers soon. :hug: Congratulations on almost being done with school. That's great :)


I finally updated my stats on the first page (my weigh in log). At the rate I am going I won't have a loss at all this month. There has been a ton going on and there are a lot of aspects of my life right now that I am not totally happy with but I stay prayerful and keep telling myself it could be worse and God has a plan I just need to continue to endure and be faithful.

My fbs has been awful and I think it is because I have been doing so much that I forget to take my evening dose. I need to make a chart and check it off when I take it.

Well I hope you all have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend.

Hey I know it's late in the month and it seems we are slowly ALL dwindling off/down but maybe we can start setting/doing a challenge each week with for us as an incentive. (like maybe 1.5lbs a week) Just something to look forward to and hopefully have fun doing it. And we can do it all on this thread (September thread) instead of using 2-3 other threads what do you all think?

Also do we have a new title for the September thread ... help me out ladies. I am using titles from years ago :)

:DAKA: I have hypothyroid as does my 10 yr. old son. It is often an auto immune disorder(Hashimoto's) where your body basically attacks your thyroid. So your body dumps lots of TSH(Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) into your blood stream. If you don't get it treated you can often get a goiter(Large lump on your neck) I take Synthroid as does my son. Looks like your drug works about the same. You will have your lab-work checked out every 6 weeks until it stabilizes. I would strongly suggest getting an endocrinologist as many doctors are not great at handling it and basically will not treat you if your TSH level is below 5.0. I just started seeing an endocrinologist as my primary doctor was not closely following my labs. My endocrinologist treats you if your number is above 3.0. It does affect weight loss if your thyroid goes untreated. He said you will have plateau's and until your thyroid is fully non functional you won't get a stable dose for a while.
I think if you look you will find someone in your family also had an auto-immune disorder. They are related. My Grandmother had Rheumatoid arthritis. My uncle had graves disease(Hyperthyroid) My daughter had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and I am getting her checked for her thyroid this year. Her JVA has been in remission for 4 yrs. My son has Hashimoto's and I technically just have hypothyroidism but am sure it is Hashimoto's.
Hope this helps. :D

Taking medication has helped me not gain as quickly as I was (100lbs in 8 months). But even with a tsh of 0 it is still very hard to lose. they say low carb is helpful (it isn't for me.. I gain on low carb only).

Just a discovery. There is a new soda called Natural Jones. (Jones soda) and it is only natural stuff. a whole bottle is only 30 calories with 5 grams of fiber. yes, it's not as good as normal soda but it's an alternative. It has a very light flavor. I haven't had any soda in over a month but someone gave me this so... had to try it.

so.. my husband isn't trying at all. he ordered bbq wings from dominoes. I was very flakey about it but I couldn't take the smell and said I'd eat whatever was left. There was 5. So they calories for that are all over the place and I estimate it was 137 calories per wing and rounded up to 150 for dipping it in ranch. I had 5. I was unsatisfied and hungry and could have eaten 4 times as many. But 5 eenie weenie wings are 750 calories!!!!! How is that even humanly possible.. there's like a half teaspoon of meat on them. bleh :( And then husband ate lays potato chips dipped in cheese dip. Are you kidding me? I ended up eating a handful of chips. I'm flippantly guessing 100 calories for a handful. :(

Got on the scale.. hit 268 point something. I wish I knew what to give my body to make it happy. Yesterday I also took a second dose of miralax (laxative) so while I weighed myself after it kicked in and it didn't make a difference that day the next day it did. (I have a history of fissures and hemmeroids.. heck.. I'm anonymous here and so it was starting to tear so I had to take the stuff. Very painful).

Store some french fries form my daughter and I had a few of her chips (I have to work on keeping her weight up so she gets whatever she wants). And I made vegetable soup which is about 130 calories a cup and very chunky.

You'd think I'd be happier. I was thinking.. boy I sure wish I had a ton of pics when I was in my 20's.. there was a moment when I was 22 and weighed 160 for a couple weeks. Didn't last long and I didn't have webcams or a computer back then but man I sure wish I had pictures of myself. *sigh*

Carma you are a boat load of info ... glad you're here :hug:

Caroline at least you admit you know what is and has been happening :thumbup: and you came back and you are here :hug: ... you'll get it together ... you/we always do ... even if it's only for a few days or a week, it's a start. :) I've started over a lot in the last two months for sure :)

invisagirl, you may have said already but I don't remember. Are you exercising? I know when I first started 3 years ago I loss weight fast because I was actually moving my body (which I'm not doing now). I lose on low carb but can't continue low carb for long. Like Ona says all it takes is for me to have a little carbs and I have blown it. Once I start I can't/don't stop, smh. Gonna look up that soda :) I need the fiber ;) invisagirl you are very hard on yourself :hug: I'll tell you your day truly sounds like many of mine here lately with the eating (snacking). We still have four children here with us and two of our sons love to cook, with that said some days I feel like all I do is eat and mess up any good that I have done.


I think I am gonna try shakes this week. I'll do a shake with my low carb yogurt, an apple and my coffee for breakfast. ATTEMPT to pack a descent lunch and another shake for dinner. I want to do this for 3 days and hope that it helps my thought pattern though I've heard you must do something for 7 to 14 days in order for it to click/stick with you :D My fbs has been ridiculous still. I know you all are tired of hearing my same ole' sob story but this is my vent and confession place regarding my bad choices ... just gotta pray that the gluttony bug can leave me and then my health will improve, right. :)

invisagirl
08-26-2013, 06:48 PM
Love, what is fbs? Yeah, I'm just tired of failing. I've done low carb and I don't lose any weight at all except the first week... and I do it for months. I was so constipated the first time I couldn't get out of bed and had no energy to walk. Believe me.. I am dreeeeaming of ribeyes!

I actually love shakes. I think I would be ok drinking shakes the rest of my life but they are just too expensive and most of them have so many weird ingredients and fake this and that maybe just homemade is better. I am saving sooo much money.

I made vengetable soup a few days ago and it's lasted 4 days. 3 cups of water, 1/2 cup black beans (thought they were kidney oops), onion, green beans the whole can, salt/pepper/garlic/chilli powder/basil fresh and jarred (i tend to throw in every spice in my reach) a touch of turmeric for anti-inflammation). I think that's it. It was only 130 calories a cup. I admit I don't like vegetable soup but I lived.

Today hubby was eating the kid's fruit loops (argh). I yelled at him. I can't have him dead. He said he was going to start a raw soup diet. Um ok... sounds fine. I know he eats fast food at least twice a day. He NEEDS to get the inflammation aka fat out of his body so we can have a baby and I'm over the hill as it is. We need to step it up. I'm not giving up this time.

He ate a brat hotdog yesterday and I was starving. I'm beginnign to realize... he is a big reason I eat too much. I never ate fast food before I met him. he ate it everyday. If he makes me cry.. he buys me food. Which is a lot. I notice he does it to our kid. She cries he gives her doritoes instead of giving her a hug which is what she really wants. that makes me sad. And he does the same to me. And I am weak willed and cave easily. Those brat hot dogs (are ammmmaaazing) are 230 calories for 3 bites. Tons of sodium etc.

I'm just using this place as my diary. I don't think anyone minds lol. Just skip my posts.

so yesterday I was up .2 and today I'm down 1. The 2 week plataeu was brutal.

And I do not exercize much. I have a lot of health issues. I can barely stay awake during the day even not on a diet. I use to diet and do the treadmill even though it felt like I was dying.. didn't help me lose. That's why I'm trying limited ingredients. I do run up and down the hallway now and then.

I have a new thin friend. So she came over the other day and she was moaning about how she had TWO eggs for breakfast! She's like... I usually only have 1 but I said no I'm going to have 2 and I am sooo full. I am totally regretting it! I am stuffed. I can't believe I did that. I know you probably don't want to hear things like that from thin people.

I did NOT punch her in the throat! :P I just smiled and nodded.

She says some dumb things now and then. Like my cat jumped on her shoulder and she was all no no I'm too small for that. Like me being fat makes it ok for a cat to jump on my shoulder. I mean I do let the cat do it because she's stubborn but it hurts me too. Fat people don't hurt as much because they have more shoulder space?!?!

I do know she has bad food issues. Her mom forced anorexia on her kids and was very weird.

But still... 2 eggs. and oh.. she got really sick at my house not eating and so I cooked her a small potato.. just a plain potato NOTHING on it (threw it in the microwave... and she ate half of it and complained about stuffing herself and how she shouldn't have done that.

I think I just do not have the mind of a thin person. My ommlette would have had cheese and onions and probably 5 eggs some salsa and I'd still be hungry lol. She'd probably faint.

then she had the odacity to say she hadn't seen me eat while she was there and if I don't eat I'm going to destroy my metabolism. And that was a few hours after her whole egg issue. Brother! but yes I was starving I just wanted her to leave so I could cook without her watching me.

And yes.. she is very thin... OH.... she said.. omg lol.. she couldn't get her pants on because she ate that extra egg. Holy crap.. seriously?!?!

Yesterday I ate weird. I stopped flavoring my water with fruit juice for one. I think I did one glass but it's just a splash. And I took one of my metformin pills which I had quit. (helps to regulate insulin for pcos). I nabbed my duaghters french fries, veggie soup, then I was trying to make a healthy choice.. so I had a quarter of an onion with blue cheese dressing and a teaspoon of cheese. usually we do this with tomatoes. It was weird eating it but I was tired. I just realized we have spinach.. why didn't I put that in? Then I got bad work news and ate a half bag of lays potato chips. :(

my weight is 266.6 I got on again.. it's never the same again.. 266.6 eeeek! devil numbers! lol

My work reviews our work every month.. they actually do it at least 3 times (different ways). 80% is minimum to make it by without getting fired instantly. Under 80% you are suppose to go on review and fired. This is my third month with two of the scores at 73% (my third score was an 89%). Even the newbs were doing better than me. I swear when I go to the meetings they give me bad advice and I do worse! I really need this job bad so I am beside myself. I missed the last "class" for improvement and I was invited to another this week but they are so early. I hit the snooze and that's how I missed last weeks. Going to spend today reviewing my books. I can't believe I failed again.. lord... we are always borderline bankrupt because of my fool husband and I am the one paying for his mistakes. Too much stress.

I have a new thin friend. So she came over the other day and she was moaning about how she had TWO eggs for breakfast! She's like... I usually only have 1 but I said no I'm going to have 2 and I am sooo full. I am totally regretting it! I am stuffed. I can't believe I did that. I know you probably don't want to hear things like that from thin people.

I did NOT punch her in the throat! :P I just smiled and nodded.

She says some dumb things now and then. Like my cat jumped on her shoulder and she was all no no I'm too small for that. Like me being fat makes it ok for a cat to jump on my shoulder. I mean I do let the cat do it because she's stubborn but it hurts me too. Fat people don't hurt as much because they have more shoulder space?!?!

I do know she has bad food issues. Her mom forced anorexia on her kids and was very weird.

But still... 2 eggs. and oh.. she got really sick at my house not eating and so I cooked her a small potato.. just a plain potato NOTHING on it (threw it in the microwave... and she ate half of it and complained about stuffing herself and how she shouldn't have done that.

I think I just do not have the mind of a thin person. My ommlette would have had cheese and onions and probably 5 eggs some salsa and I'd still be hungry lol. She'd probably faint.

then she had the odacity to say she hadn't seen me eat while she was there and if I don't eat I'm going to destroy my metabolism. And that was a few hours after her whole egg issue. Brother! but yes I was starving I just wanted her to leave so I could cook without her watching me.

And yes.. she is very thin... OH.... she said.. omg lol.. she couldn't get her pants on because she ate that extra egg. Holy crap.. seriously?!?!

:bravo: for not punching her in the throat. I seriously have no idea how you resisted. :-)

197.8 this morning. I ate tons of fruits and vegetables yesterday and have been craving them A LOT. pretty stressed right now, but trying to think of no one but myself. I need tunnel vision to get through school and find a job and a million other things. THIS is the time to be selfish.

I think I probably would have said to her ... not to be mean but I want to punch you in the throat so you could be quite :D then I'd smile, give her something to think about. My Mom is very very thin. I make two of her and some. She has made some awful comments to me about my weight but I'd suck them up and keep on going. I don't know why thin people make the comments that they do maybe the same reason we make the comments that we do. But some people need to know when to shut up because if they are hurting your feelings then they really aren't much of a friend. Just my two cents ... can't do anything about what my Mom says, but my kids always stand up for me ;)

invisagirl fbs is fasting blood sugar. I have Type 2 diabetes. I love the shakes also. I have only made two this week. With the last three returning to school and the youngest crying every morning because I can't put her on the bus. I just feel like life is truly overwhelming at the moment. :dizzy: I ate Frroot Loops for dinner the day I read about your hubby eating them. I ate about a cup and a half before I started not to feel so good. They didn't quite do it for me like they use to :D I guess that's a plus. :) This is a great way to keep a diary for sure. It will definitely always be here. Brats are great especially fried or grilled :drool: Maybe flavor your water with fresh lemon and a pack of Splenda. When my son will juice them for me, I drink a warm glass of lemon water first thing in the morning no Splenda. Then I take a 32oz glass of lemon water with one Splenda to sip on during my morning. Not sure if it is helping with anything but it can't hurt anything either (I don't think :)) LOL that's what I say about those numbers also.

Kaitie, LOL on resisting the punch :) Hope all is well :)

Amanda sorry about the stress :hug: and you do what you have to do to get you through :high:

Well l'm still working on getting my sugars back down. They have been in the high 200's for awhile now. I know what the problem is ... I need more control in the evenings. My weigh in this morning was 190.0. I need to strive to get to 185 then maybe I can focus a little better, idk what will keep me motivated. I need to lose and keep 1.8lbs off between now and the first in order to have a lost for the month. I'd like to go for 2.5lbs anyone care to join me?????

I hope those of you that haven't checked in are doing as well as can be. Missing you all :hug: I'll set the September thread up shortly.

well 188.4 this morning. Had a stomach issue after lunch yesterday that sent me to the bathroom so I am sure that's why the good number. So back in the 180's for now ... let's see if I can do it for the whole weekend :crossed:

You all are really quiet here lately ... I do hope you all check in more next month ... I like keeping up with everyone :hug:

love, ahh maybe I shouldn't have mentioned the fruit loops! They are staring at me as we speak. But I'm allergic to gluten so I can't have them :(

For some reason lemon water causes me severe acid reflux.. otherwise I'd be drinking it for sure

Kaitie lol thanks!



My husband saw my weight diary :( I am soooooo embarrassed. He thought I weighed like 240 or something? I only knew because I made him weigh in.. which he hadn't lost any weight but hadn't gained either and eats mcdonalds everyday *grumble*. If I were him I'd be in shape in no time with that metabolism. Anyway.. he said yeah by 1 pound.. and I was like errrrr wtf?? He said my weight chart was up on my computer and it wasn't his fault. And it wasn't. My bad. But I'm very embarrassed. I didn't want him to know I was 300 :( He didn't make me feel bad at all its just me. Bummer.

I got an email from work that is saying I will lose my job if my scores don't get higher and I just don't know how.. he gave me a bunch of reading material.. and I have plans this weekend and I still need to get in 15 hours of work... but what's the point if I'm doing a bad job? So I guess friday will be spent studying and not working :(

I binged this week. I got cocky. I could have lost a few more pounds this week but didn't. I binged on something disgusting too. I got the family their mcdonalds and I was going to go to a special gluten free cafe for a sandwhich and I said nope! going home! *proud*.. then I was cooking these freezerburned weird chicken nuggets without the breading.. they were rubbery and very questionable. I was cooking them for my daughter and made a bunch to just give to the cats because it was veerrrry questionable... and instead I ate them all. I felt ill. like painfully stuffed until the next day and icky. And then tons of potato chips. Ugh and then hubby bought me a 500 calorie cookie!!! And it had gluten free oats which I can't eat either so I sucked the chocolate off and spit the solids out lol. But I only ate half the cookie.. but oh my lord.. it was like the cookies I made as a child.. no bake chocolate peanut butter cookie.. sooo good.

But oddly I didn't gain those days but man I would have lost weight had I not. I am down 4 pounds this week anyway.

05 ~ 297.2 (+7.4)
19 ~ 296.6 (+7.0)
27 ~ 290.0 (+1.8)



Despite days like these, I managed to lose 2.4 this month. It's not a lot, or even near what I had hoped, but I'm calling it a victory anyhow.
