Amanda you go girl, nice weigh in. :high: You'll be right here with me soon :)

09-30-2013, 06:37 PM
New thread, hello! Last weigh in for September was 222.2, and happy to move onto October!

09-30-2013, 10:51 PM
I posted this on the September thread also :)

WOOT Dana 14.8lbs oh my goodness, WAY TO GO my friend :high:

Crab we live and we learn and at least you caught yourself. Pat yourself on the back for that, and move on to the new month. We can do it :) and :welcome: to the thread, hope to see you on the October thread

I had to work almost two hours overtime so I came home and ate what my son had cooked, fried chicken thighs (2) and some corn pudding as he called it. He made some plain white corn for me but I added a serving spoon of his corn pudding to it so I'm sure it wasn't healthy at all. The good thing is with a high number at the start of the month it shouldn't be hard to have a low number at the end ;)

10-01-2013, 12:19 AM
I too am ending September up, by a few pounds... Time to refocus - after tomorrow's bday festivities :D

Thank you, Rennie :D The more I lose and the better I feel, the more I know I could have accomplished this and more the last time I tried losing weight... if only my gall bladder hadn't kicked the bucket. :P Took my body forever to really get over the feeling of having had something of *its* taken out of it, you know?

I'm looking forward to October! And I think you're looking at the new month in just the right way as well :)


4 lbs and a bit and I reach my next mini-goal, yay!

How do you all reward yourself for that kind of thing, if you reward at all?

Happy Birthday, Superhero!

AKA: Sorry to hear that you are in pain. I hope the progesterone works well for you.

Fair and Free: I do plan on rewarding myself. It has worked well in the past. I bought a pandora style bracelet and I get a bead for every 10lbs. I also recently discovered gel polish manicures and I've told myself that I can get a manicure for each month I stay on-plan.

Today is day #2 of Southbeach Phase 1. Feeling pretty good mentally. Physically, I'm battling a nasty headcold or allergies. Not sure which it is, but will be so happy when it's over. Today is also my last day of vacation. Back to the grind tomorrow. I'm hoping that structured days will make it even easier to stay on-plan.

Ophelia - I'm jacking your cute little chart!

On that note, I'm here and I'm ready for do this whole month thing with you guys. I am busting butt to get out of the two-teens right now and for the past three days have been working out so hard and eating exactly what I should be. Now, I had ballooned back up to 220 towards the end of September, but my level has toppled BACK down to 215 with all the work I've been putting in. I'm also happy to report I've jogged a mile! I walk/jog two a day, and I've jogged one of those miles for the past two days and I can tell my endurance and my lungs feel so happy. Okay, enough blabbing.

10-02-2013, 11:46 AM
SuperHero, Happy belated Birthday :)

Rhonda :welcome: to the thread, it's good to see you again :) Nice weigh in today. I know SB works if you stick with it. I tried it and did well while I was on it but couldn't stick with it. I don't have the discipline it takes to keep at it. Hope your cold/allergies get better. I was there for about a week and a half not good at all. Enjoy your day and feel better :)

Dana I believe you'll make your mini goal plus some, just keep that focus :)

Amanda you are Rockin' It :)

Carma that's how I feel about my numbers. It's like my eyes see the 185 on the scale and go yikes and then they go back up, smh. We'll do it! We know that we can :)

Essa nice weigh in. I like your signature :)

Hi ophelia :wave:

wishfully :welcome: to the thread, :congrat: on the jogging :high: and babble away my dear, I sure do :D

PUPMOMS :welcome: to the thread :)

Well my start weight for the month was 188.4 down 1.2 from September 30th. I am down a pound today also but only because I couldn't do much of anything yesterday. I had major back spasms so ended up going to urgent care. I am on medication now and feeling better as long as I don't move a lot.

I hope you all have a great day :hug:

10-02-2013, 12:35 PM

Thanks for the warm welcome, LoveB. And thanks for letting me use it Ophelia. I'm sorry to hear about your problems, LadyPetite, but ya gotta eat. If you need any support, I'm here to listen.

So, yesterday was okay! I did overdo my carbs but it still yielded a loss so I'm happy. I think I may up my carb game a little and start focusing on calories. I don't know how I should switch since carb counting was easy for me but now has become so hard after my last break almost a month ago. In the past two months I didn't lose as much as I had previously so I don't know if I was doing something wrong. My calorie counts were pretty low. I am gonna just chalk up last month to the past though. I'm focusing on October! Whoo. I did my two miles today, but I didn't jog it. For the past three days, I have been really pushing myself and I wanted to give my body a little rest without taking the day off completely. My efforts have not been in vain though. I yielded a nice 1.2 loss.

10-02-2013, 05:29 PM
LadyPetite, sorry about the breakup :hug: but like wishully said, you've got to eat. Constantly throwing up with make you even more sick. Maybe try some broth of some kind with a few light spices. I hope you feel better soon. :hug: and :welcome: to the thread :)

Amanda that's right speak it into existence. I need to hear it also :)

niauah good to see you :) hope you're feeling better :hug:

wishfully do you use myfitnesspal. I am usually under on my calories but ok on my carbs. I'm diabetic so too many carbs just don't work especially when I don't eat the right carbs :D. I use to walk 3 miles a day 6 days a week and it definitely worked wonders. So however you do it, it does help. Way to go and good job on the 1.2lbs down :high:

10-02-2013, 09:36 PM
Hey Rennie.... Thanks.. I am much better :D


10-02-2013, 09:59 PM
Rennie, my Carolina buddy! I'm from Fayetteville so I'm glad we're close yet so far or you'd be my exercise buddy. Anyways, no I don't use the fitness pal but I am REALLY good about remembering carb counts or how much I'm getting in.

niauah, I'm glad :hug:

wishfully I truly wish I could find a friend on 3FC that lived close enough to exercise with that would be great :) I can't remember all of the stuff I eat so it definitely helps for me to put it down before hand and then if I go off plan then edit it later. Good for you on remembering :)

weight up this morning .6 to 188 I had a big mac meal for dinner so not good at all and I knew this, but I ate it anyway. It's been a very long time since we've had McD's so I'll count it as a treat :)

I hope all are well or getting better and we all have a good day :hug:

Amanda it's got to be water, it'll go away :) I just noticed you are gonna get your hair cut at 192. Are you gonna get it cut cut? Toes done, humm I may reward myself with that one if I can get under 185 and stay there for a week or so. :D Hopinf for a better weigh in for you tomorrow :crossed:

10-03-2013, 09:39 PM
Rennie - If you ever wanna drive to Raven Rock, we can meet in the middle. It'll be rad.

Aka - Ugh is how I'm feeling, but Rennie's right. It has to be water weight.

As for myself, I am feeling water weight plus it's almost TOM so my body starts acting spastic and starts to add on weight. I'm up 2.2 pounds today cause of our gift from nature. But I can look forward to is the nice whoosh later, right?

10-04-2013, 10:34 AM
wishfully I'll have to look that up ... we are always looking for places to go. I spent my summers here as a youth and visited throughout my older years but all of the farm land is now homes, stores, roads and more. We've been here a little over a year. My family is here except my Mom but I'm praying she'll retire for good and move down :) I haven't had a good whoosh in years. I know that if I'd implement exercise I'd definitely have a few. Just gotta get there mentally :D

Back to work today, walked with my daughter to the bus stop this morning, doing ok not as well as I'd like, son has plans for tomorrow that will be more walking. Praying for strength and endurance.

Have a great day everyone :hug:

10-04-2013, 12:34 PM
And just like I said, mother nature likes to be cruel to me at this time of the month so i'm back down to 214 and I even saw 213 at one point.

10-05-2013, 12:05 AM
Thank you love2b and wishfuii for your kind words. I guess it's one of those things that just depends on time in order to heal. My appetite isn't back the way it was but I started eating yesterday a bit more.

10-05-2013, 07:53 PM
Yay, I got a little nap in after a very intense jog through the woods, which is my favorite thing ever. It's funny how I was looking forward to it so much. Anyways, post-nap I saw 212.8! We'll see if it sticks with the TOM.

LadyPetite I'm glad you're eating a little :), I know it's hard but you gotta think about yourself also :hug: praying for better days soon for ya :hug:

wishfully keep up the nice work :)

Amanda it's going back down :)

Well I'm up to 190.4 lots of snacking yesterday and the day before, just eating what I want during the evenings which is really my hardest time. Hopefully going back to work and having to have some structure will keep me OP. I have to plan my breakfast and lunch and stick with it because I'm not going to buy lunch out and breakfast must be so that I can get up out the door in time. SO hopefully I can get back into the 180's and then get lower than 185 by the end of the month. Oh I've got a Thanksgiving type dinner planned so I don't expect to have a great weigh in tomorrow morning either. It is what it is ....

I hope you all have a great Sunday :hug:

10-07-2013, 12:12 PM
I'm taking a few days off from weighing in. I've got a really bad UTI and I'm hurting. trying to get a Doc appointment so I can get some antibiotics. blerghh

10-07-2013, 12:59 PM
Amanda I hope you get an appointment soon. Feel better :hug:

Lost a pound this week after going to a wedding and everything. So psyched. Makes me look forward to this week without having a big event to go to.

10-08-2013, 07:02 PM
Feel better, Amanda.

WTG Lindy!

Been on a no break thing! I kinda ate more than I'm used to today, but I feel comfortable in that because I've been working out so hard. #TeamNoDaysOff! Up .4 today, but that's fine. It'll be fine. I know I'm waiting for my TOM whoosh, plus muscle weighs more than fat, right? RIGHT?

10-09-2013, 11:18 AM
Lindy good to see you here :) keep up the good work :high:

wishfully yep muscle weighs more than fat :), nice job on the NoDaysOff, wish I could say that :)

Well I was up yesterday, I forgot to weigh in on Monday (my morning was busy with getting my daughter ready) todays weigh in still 1.6 higher than on 10/1. I weighed in at 190.2. I decided I wanted to make a big Thanksgiving type dinner on Sunday. The family loved it but it definitely isn't any good for me. I was talking to my boss yesterday and she is down to 183 ... I told her I didn't want to talk to her (joking of course). It's just a little mind blowing when someone weighs/weighed what you weigh and they are losing and you aren't. I don't know what she's doing and I didn't ask. I will do what I can to get under 185 this month. I may have to set my treadmill up in the middle of the kitchen floor. I've got to do something :D

I hope you all are having a great week so far. Let's check in Ladies (says the lady that hasn't checked in in a few days) ;) we've got to do this together :hug:

10-09-2013, 12:27 PM
Well, I've been losing weight like crazy. I lost 1.5 lbs since yesterday. My appetite still isn't back but I forced myself to get some noodles and some cake this morning. I want to lose weight but not like this. Especially while not feeling this way.

Wishing I could just fast forward time and get over this hurt.

ETA: Well, couldn't hold it in and threw that up. So much for trying. I'm so sick and tired of feeling this way, I want to be back to my happy self. Yet every time I think about my ex and the new person he's with, all I want to do is curl up in bed and just stay there for days.

10-10-2013, 01:28 AM
Hey well I'm back to the land of the living. This thread is getting awfully quiet..hmmph.

LadyPetite-I'm so sorry for the pain you are feeling. Just..feel it..and count the days until you feel normal again, because you will. You're in mourning. Lots of support and hugs here. Just try to rest and take care of yourself, practice self love.

wishfuiiy-Great job!!!

Rennie-you make me laugh lolll

Ran tonight, feeling much more like myself. Antibiotics day 2 and feeling just fine.

10-10-2013, 10:18 AM
LadyPetite, drink some broth or a not too heavy smoothie of some sort. It may hold longer. I sent you a PM, Hope you can get pass this part of your life soon :hug:

Amandathis thread always does that and I'm not sure why. I think some of the people that join first think that it's Diana's accountability thread and then when they realize it's not they move over. But some just find that daily weighing is not for them, even though they don't have to weigh daily, I just can't get away from it :D idk :) ... I'm glad I make you laugh, some times I amuse myself with the wacky things that I say, LOL. Glad you're feeling better :hug:

Well I was up .2 this morning and I know I could have been down a pound, but my son decided he wanted to make pasta for the sauce I had made at 9 last night. So of course with my sauce smelling so good when I prepared it, I truly looked forward to eating it but because no one fixed the pasta before church I surely didn't think we would eat it after church ... and dun dun dun dunnnn ... here I go not resisting and ate about a cup and a half, smh. I don't think I will ever honestly learn.

Well I hope everyone has a great day, it's raining here for the forth day and in the low 50's. Last week it was in the 80's ... I do love the fall and the crisp days, ahhhhh :D

Ok have a great day and give yourself a hug, you deserve it ... here's one from me :hug:

I started 30DS yesterday - I'm hoping it might help the scale to start moving down again!

10-11-2013, 10:04 AM
Happy Friday to ALL :wave:

Amanda I'm sure your whoosh is coming, all the effort and hard work has to pay off and show itself soon :)

PUPMOMS good for you :high: I did or should I say attempted 30DS a few times, the constant up and down was a workout in itself for me, LOL. Best of luck to you with it. I'm sure it works, people on 3FC have given it it's props for sure :)

Well the scale keeps going up and up ... I am at 190.8 today. I think I need a cleanse. I just feel like my stomach has a bunch of stuff in it that won't come out.

10-11-2013, 11:08 AM
Rennie, I've read such wonderful things about it but it is incredibly hard! Those jumping jacks are killer and then, of course, Jillian is saying how she has 400lb people that do them. Yeah, painfully, I'm sure!

10-11-2013, 11:19 AM
Yeah the jumping jacks were hard for me, I couldn't do all of them and like I said with the doing things standing and then on the floor .... smh, my kids would crack up because it was so hard for me to get up off the floor. Of course I didn't think it was funny. I know I've got to do something otherwise I will never get this weight off. I applaud all who exercise, I've done exercise and loved it but I don't have the will for it this go around, again smh at myself.

10-11-2013, 01:45 PM
i went to the therapist wednesday, and didn't work out. i needed a day off from this journey though i feel guilty about it. i worked out in a simple 15 minute routine last night. down a pound so maybe i needed that rest to let my muscles build and repair so they can burn this junk away.

someone took a photo of me last night and it is so hard to know how much you weigh and see a photo where you look so small especially if you were my size at one time. it is why i am having problems and am now seeing a therapist. jesus.

10-11-2013, 02:29 PM
Rennie, any movement is great and should be applauded, really.

wishfuiiy, one of my former co-workers and friends texted me the other night to tell me she missed me and that since I always say I can't see any difference in myself, she attached two photos she had put side by side: me at 289 and me at 189. She told me that I inspire her to lose weight too. It made me ridiculously happy and forced me to see a difference.

10-12-2013, 11:28 PM
wishfully Congratulations on the il down :high: don't feel bad about taking a day off, you're right you probably needed it and you still did 15 minutes so that accounts for something. I don't like any photos of myself they all make me feel bad/sad.

PUPMOMS I agree :)

It's great to inspire others ... it really does make us see the accomplishments we've made and be able to happily give ourseles some credit :)

Whoosh Amanda :cheer: didn't I tell you :high: Go Amanda Go :)

well I was up .2 this morning to 191. Not good Ladies. I am going to make an attempt at an eating pattern I found in Woman's World magazine. I'm going to start tomorrow and hope that it helps to start me on the right path

Have a good night everyone :hug:

10-13-2013, 08:27 PM
weight this morning down the .2 that I was up yesterday but thanks to all of my carbs my fbs was 241 this morning. On a good note I think I am off to a good start after my Friday and Saturday eats I truly need to be ... I have had Campbell's chicken noodle soup with a whole lot of Ritz, mac n cheese, cup cakes, birthday cake, pancakes, grits, Krispy Creme doughnuts and a biscuit ... I did have some good for me foods but not nearly as many as the bad for me foods. Today I have been OP.

BreakfastAtkins shake
Lunch chicken salad made with mayo and sweet relish (I bought some dill relish today) with spinach
Dinner chicken sausage with sauteed green pepper and 2 cups cucumber with Greek vinaigrette dresssing and added vinegar
Snack was 25 pistachios

... and even though the plan I am following doesn't call for it I may have a sugar free gelatin for my evening snack.

I've been praying for a way to work out, well my husband signed us up for a gym membership. They are running a promotion and we got in on that. God is good.

Have a great evening everyone :hug:

10-13-2013, 10:18 PM
I was just going through the thread, you all don't check in to chat often but you are updating your weigh in charts and you are doing well :high: send some of that :dust: my way :D

I'm happy for all of you :hug:

10-13-2013, 10:25 PM
Rennie, I update my chart everyday, it just won't move down!! Congrats on the gym membership! That's wonderful!

10-13-2013, 11:31 PM
It's been a busy weekend for me, and even now I gotta run! I hope all are well. It's been a happier weekend for me. I'm also down a pound so that's always rad.

10-14-2013, 12:06 PM
Thanks PUPMOMS, :) give the scale time. Have you measured yourself lately. Sometimes the inches show better what the scale doesn't. ;) Are you still doing 30DS? It could be that you are building muscle which holds water. The scale will move, don't give up ... just give it time :hug:

wishfully thank goodness for happiness :hug: Nice job on the pound down :high:

yesterday's meals

Breakfast Atkins shake
Lunch chicken salad made with mayo and sweet relish (I bought some dill relish today) with spinach
Dinner chicken sausage with sauteed green pepper and 2 cups cucumber with Greek vinaigrette dresssing and added vinegar
Snack was 25 pistachios

Well my meals yesterday and my 35 minute treadmill time paid off. I am down 3lbs of water ... first whoosh the I guess not a real one since it's water but it sure does make me feel good.

Yesterdays calories were too low at 1006 ... I am following a plan I saw in Woman's World for Atkins and I don't know why the calorie intake is that low, I know that's not healthy.

Today's meals

Breakfast 2 slices of bacon; 2 boiled eggs w/mayo & sweet relish, coffee with s/f caramel macchiato (need to add that to MFP)
Lunch 2 cups of salad greens w/a cup of spinach added, classic Caesar, 1/4c cheeese, chicken salad w/mayo & sweet relish
Snack 25 pistachios or s/f gelatin
Dinner 1/4lb burger w/ cheese & 1/4 tsp ketchup & mustard, 2c cucumbers

calories come to 1374 :) sodium is off the chain (not over the daily recommendation but still higher than I normally eat) so I'll have to get my water in for sure ;) total carbs today 28

Well have a great day Everyone :hug:

10-15-2013, 08:30 AM
another nice weigh in though not as nice as yesterday :D

down 1.4 to 186.4 fbs is 143. I definitely hope I can keep this trend going with the blood sugar.

Breakfast prepared by my son. I think he made me one egg too many. I won't know until this evening.

2 whole eggs, 1 svg egg whites w/ .5oz Cabot cheese, 2 slices of bacon

2 cups of salad greens w/a cup of spinach added, classic Caesar, 1/4c cheeese, chicken salad w/mayo & sweet relish

1/4lb burger w/ cheese & 1/4 tsp ketchup & mustard, 2c cucumber

Hoping for another great day OP :crossed:

10-15-2013, 08:41 AM
Congratulations on your losses, Rennie and Wish.

My scales stink! Three different weights this morning. I'm claiming the middle one, so I've lost .8 of a pound. :D

10-15-2013, 10:21 AM
Thanks, Rennie! :hug: Yes, I'm still doing the 30 Day Shred. My husband watched me yesterday and that was awful. I usually do it while he's asleep because I don't want an audience. I also started C25K again. I got almost done with that, but I did it inside and when I transitioned to run outdoors, well... I had to start over from scratch!

10-15-2013, 10:43 AM
Rhonda good job on the .8 :high:

PUPMOMS, I know what you mean on your husband being there. I have NOT done many workouts because my husband was sitting right there. One because he's already thin and I struggle so much with some exercises and two it's not easy to workout when someone is watching you. Give yourself a HUGE PAT on the back for getting it done with there. I know I would have skipped it. I won't even get on the machines at the gym that are in the middle. I've noticed that all of the ones in the front are taken maybe because of the tv's and the ones in the back are taken also maybe because others think like us, hum. I so want to do C25K again and be successful. I don't have any place outside to do it and before I did it on my treadmill which was hard but I did attempt it. Now I am so winded at 3.5 mph on the treadmill I don't think I will ever try to run. I told my son last night I think I have a phoebia of rolling off the back like an idiot :shrug: idk why I think that way since I have never done it, but I guess it could happen. ...

10-16-2013, 01:46 AM

Hi everyone! I just dedicated myself to getting healthier two days ago. Joined weight watchers online, and got some of the ladies in my office to participate in a month long weight loss challenge. I am down three pounds this morning! I know all about water weight, etc, but it sure feels good to see a loss :-)


10-16-2013, 10:12 AM
Kenda - Congratulations on the 3lb loss and getting your coworkers motivated!

I'm down another .8 of a lb. I'm starting to see a trend. :)

10-16-2013, 11:14 AM
Dolphin :wel3fc: and to the thread. Good job on the 13lbs. When did you start your weight loss? and what plan are you following? I kind of count calories though now I am more in-tune with carb counting since I'm diabetic. So far it's working this is day 4 for me.

Kenda :wel3fc: and the thread. Good job on the 3lbs down. I dropped 3lbs my first morning after eating right and walking the day/evening before. It does feel really good. My boss told me last week she weighs 183 so for now I just want to get lower than her :D

Rhonda good job on the .8 down :high: this is a good trend :)

I had another OP day yesterday. Though I did go over my calorie by 351, I burned 334 on the treadmill. My weigh in today down .4 to 186 even and my blood sugar the lowest it's been in forever 122. I am so proud of me. I pray I can keep this up. I'm saying if I can do this for 14 days then I can keep it moving I have today plus 8 to go. We CAN and We WILL do this Ladies :cheer:

Have a great day :hug:

10-17-2013, 12:10 AM
Amanda you'll get there. And I know how you feel. I can't get away from the 190's no matter how much I try. I do good for a week than I go right back. We'll get there. :hug:

I was OP today but carbs are substantiality higher. I bought some prune juice to help me out. Let's see how my weigh in goes with no exercise at all today. :crossed:

10-17-2013, 10:50 AM
Down another .6. It's working!!!

10-17-2013, 11:15 AM
Rhonda great job on the .6 :high:

Amanda hope you saw a lower number today :crossed:

Well surprisingly I am 1.4 down to 184.6. Ladies I am on my way to being lower than my boss. I need to ask her what she weighs this week. I have to admit not going to the gym yesterday felt good. I know that will be a norm for Wednesday's but I'm wondering if I should do it another day also.

Well have a great day ... I sure wish Joy, Kukkie and Ona would check in. It's been a long time :(

Have a great day, it's sunny here today. I'm so happy about that :D

10-17-2013, 05:27 PM
Congrats on everything ladies! Been another hard week for me but I had a magical whoosh overnight so let's hope that stays together for me. 2 lbs down to 209! SO CLOSE TO ONDERLAND IT HURTS.

My therapist appointment was yesterday and she has diagnosed me with depression (which she says I need medicine for), and actually wants me to get checked for an eating disorder. She also wants me to put away my scale for a while, which probably sounds like a good idea but I need to hold myself accountable and I get so much out of watching the scale. I don't know what to do.

10-17-2013, 10:21 PM
wishfully great job on the 2lbs down. :high: So what are you gonna do scale wise? It bothers me when I forget to weigh in. Even when I have left 3FC I still weighed daily, I just didn't record it :) nuts huh! Sorry about the depression :hug:

I had another OP day in my opinion, however I did go over my calories by 117 calories and my carbs were high. I did go to the gym, I burned 250 calories so I'm happy with that.

Well I hope you all have a great night :hug:

10-17-2013, 10:27 PM
Well, my scale won't move down but I'm losing inches, so that's something!! I'll take any win.

10-17-2013, 10:31 PM
PUPMOM5, congrats on the inches. :high: I can't wait to lose inches around my middle. No more looking like I'm pregnant and I can't blame it on my baby ... she's 9 years old :D

10-19-2013, 12:05 PM
Well yesterday and today's weight was the same 185.6. I am still being good and OP. I haven't got enough sleep the last two nights. I've been going to bed too late and I have had to get up too early. So I've been getting about 5.5 hours of sleep. Not good at all when losing weight. I've been doing well with my walking. I actually ran a little last evening. I was so proud of myself. :) I also figured out why my Nike+ always had better numbers than the treadmill and MFP. The Nike+ has a sensor so it knows how many times I step down/how many steps I take and it knows how far and what the burn is. The treadmill only goes by the levels I enter which I always do the same. And it's recorded in MFP because I have a treadmill (just no where to set it up here). So now I know what to use/go by. :) I've been doing better than I thought. And when I get some sleep, I'll be able to see it.

10-19-2013, 12:11 PM
Renne, thanks for the note! I started after labor day. I'm on medifast now, I lost 50 lbs 2 years ago and then got pregnant--exactly 2 years ago. Back at it gain, but just with left over medifast food from me and a neighbor and some substitutions with other bars and low carb food. I'll switch to all low carb and calorie counting when I run out of medifast food because I can't afford it with 2 kids now. I am in it for good now. I am feeling positive and happy my weight loss is continuing. I am starting walking, 7500 steps a day, a work thing and will start serious working out in December. I am asking for a 6 week boot camp for Christmas, so as I transition to normal food, I'll pump up the working out

10-19-2013, 12:55 PM
Dolphin - I really liked the success I found on Medifast. Unfortunately, it is very expensive and it became too restrictive for me. I do like the Southbeach diet. I think you plan of low carb with calorie counting is a great plan.

Rennie - I hope you get some rest this weekend. Pamper yourself! Sounds like NIKE plus is the way to go. When I used to run, I always wore NIKE. Now, they run just a bit too narrow for me. I'm hoping I can get back into NIKE's and try out the NIKE+.

Pups - Inches trump pounds! Great job.

Wishfully - I have battled depression for years. :hugs: Have you had your vitamin D and B12 checked. Mine was low and I'm now supplementing. It has really helped. The other thing that helped was me coming off of sugar. My moods and outlook on life are so much more positive. Hang in there. It gets better. PM me if you need to chat.

Aka - Keep pushing! You how far you have come. You will beat the 190's.

My scales went down again by another 1.6 lbs. This is the first time I've felt success and optimistic about weight loss in years!

10-19-2013, 04:32 PM
Dolphin which pedometer do you use to count your steps? I really want to get the fitbit. I've heard nothing but great things about it. I think that's what I'll ask for at Christmas.

Rhonda ... you are doing this thing :) WAY TO GO my Friend :high: Keep up the great work :hug:

10-20-2013, 10:16 AM
I'm getting one from work, I think it's the kind that plugs into you computer

10-20-2013, 10:57 AM

10-20-2013, 12:46 PM
Hi Everyone.

It's pretty quiet around here. Where are all of my weight loss buddies?

Scale went down slightly today. .2 As long as it's headed in the right direction, I'm happy! I'll be working today. It's my busiest time of the year and I want to get a jump start on my work week. It wouldn't take much to fall behind. It's nice to work on the weekends because I don't have anyone calling me or trying to reach me via chat. I get so much accomplished.

Hope everyone is having a great on-plan day!

10-20-2013, 02:04 PM
Dolphin that's great that your job is doing a walking program. :)

Streudel :welcome: to the thread.:) What plan are you following? How's it working for you? When did you start?

I have been low carbing this is week 2 day 1. I walk on the treadmill 6 days a week and I am trying to do crunches. My goal is to do 3 miles and actually start to run and not just walk and do how many ever crumches so that I can actually start to feel and see the effects :) Three years ago I walked 3 miles a day, counted calories and loss 30lbs in a little over 3 months. Hoping to do it again

Hi Rhonda, busy morning here ... kind of ;). I was gonna take a nap, now the boys want to go to the gym and I have no reason (no good reason) to say NO so we are going :D

Well I am up .4 to 186 even ... not happy about the scale but I wore a pair of slacks to church that I have not been able to wear in over a year. SO a nice NSV.

Have a great day everyone :hug:

Hi there, Rennie! :wave:

Thanks for the lovely welcome. I can't say I really have a plan as of yet. I've lost weight using every plan known to mankind. I've yet to figure out how to keep it off, though. My last go round I lost 70 lbs. calorie counting and running, then gained all but 7 lbs back.

For right now, all I can seem to do is try to just not binge and talk a walk at work. It's probably been about two weeks since I start baby stepping back on track and I'm down 5 lbs. When I'm ready, I'll probably go back to calorie counting, though running will probably have to wait until I lose some weight ( I have a nagging foot injury ).

I'm trying to think through my previous attempt, remember what worked and figure out how I went off the rails. I'm hoping maybe some of the maintainers here can help me figure out how to commit to this for a lifetime.

Good for you on your goal of running! :) If I could give you any advice on that it would be to keep doing exactly what you're doing. You can't go too slowly when starting out, but you can move too quickly. Couch to 5K is a great program from what I've heard.

Streudel, from here on out if you aren't doing it already start journaling. Nothing helps me more than to go back and read what worked before. My issue now is before I wasn't diagnosed as a diabetic. I can't have half the carbs I use to have and get a good fasting blood sugar read. But it's nice to see that I am actually eating better than I was before. I've attempted C25K before. I thought about downloading the app again but I don't know if I can use my Nike+ and the C25K at the same time. So I may just have to build it up on my own. Here's some :dust: for ya to help with binging. :)

I had to smell pizza today, plain chips, and peanut butter and jelly today. The kids and my husband sure no how to help out :D

I did really well today on my run/walk. In 65 minutes (3.3 miles) I burned 538 calories. I am so hoping for a better number on the scale in the morning. I've been too good not to see a drop soon. I want something sweet and my daughter ate my last sugar free gelatin :( but no worries. I can wait. We have a movie to take back so I'll get some more then. Only 5 calories. :)

I hope you all have had a great day or you are having a great day.

I hope we all have an OP week :hug:

That a great idea, Rennie. It's hard to believe that in all the years I've been dieting, I've never actually journaled. I've done plenty of logging calories, but not actual writing.

Great job on your run/walk! I hope your having a great day too! :D

10-21-2013, 11:28 PM
Thanks Streudel I did have a pretty good day yesterday and today also :)

Just wanted to report that I had a .8 loss this morning down to 185.2. I did well today but just ate popcorn not good I know. So hopefully the scale won't be too mean to me in the morning :)

Have a great night all, I need to go to bed at an almost descent time for a change ;)

Start Weight: 273 (Sept. 30)

07: 272 (WW)
08: 271.6
22: 276.2 (WW)

YIKES! I was avoiding going to WW to see how much I gained. Although this time I weighed in wearing jeans for the first time. I weighed myself this morning right when I got out of bed and then after I was dressed and it was a difference of 1.4 lbs. so the jeans do affect it a little bit. I was talking to the girl who weighed me in and she said that she was going to try the simply filling way this week so I am too and then see how we do. Maybe I am up for a change and a little challenge to get myself back on track.

Hi guys!

I stuck my head in here back in June and just signed in again today and found a note from Rennie and Ona two of my favourite weight-loss buddies! :yay:

I'm clearly not doing well for daily tracking these days. I have managed to lose a few pounds since my last check in, so I'm up 26lbs from my low. I'm going to see if I can jump back in here...I'm going on a trip in 2 weeks and I'd like to see if I can lose 5lbs or so (minimum!) by then. :) I know it's a tall order, but since I haven't been very careful lately I'm sure I have a little water weight to shed.

October 22 - 226.6 (ouch!)

10-22-2013, 11:17 PM
Hi guys,

I only started my journey last Thursday, but I guess I'll join right in! I am so terrified of the scale. I lost 100 pounds in 2008-2009 which ultimately messed up my metabolism so much that I started gaining weight as soon as I would go over 1500 calories a day. Combined with a terrible accident that left me on crutches for 1.5 years, I gained 70 pounds back. Every time it's time to get on the scale, I get terrified of seeing the number. For now, I think I'll keep a routine of weighing every 2 days instead of every day. This week's weight in makes me think that my metabolism had time to reset itself (yay!)

Oct 17-267.8
Oct 20-265.0 (-2.8)
Oct 22-263.8 (-1.2)(-4.0)
Oct 24-263.4 (-0.4)(-4.4)
Oct 25-263.2 (giving in to daily weight-in) (-0.2)(-4.6)
Oct 26-263.0 (-0.2)(-4.8)
Oct 27-262.6 (-0.4)(-5.2)
Oct 28-262.0 (-0.6)(-5.8)
Oct 29-261.0 (-1.0)(-6.8)
Oct 30-261.0 (0.0)(-6.8)
Oct 31-

10-23-2013, 10:09 PM
Lindy sorry about the up. :hug: Can you share a bit about the "simply filling way" of eating please :)

Angieeeeeeee :hug: I have missed you. :hug: so glad to see you. I'm not sure where Ona is. I called her and no return call so I don't know if the number is correct. Of course I have emailed and PM'd her, no reply. Diana and I both are worried about her. It's not like her to stay away so long. I pray the that Ona, her Mother and Aunt are all doing well. Angie 5lbs in two weeks starting when today? You know I'll do it with you. I like the challenge :D and I so need to lose 5lbs also :)

ok I got a little confused for a moment we have two DOLPHINS on the thread :D

dolphin9006 :welcome: to the thread :) weigh in whenever you like :hug: I hope it gets easier for you :hug:

Well weight was up a pound to 186.8. TOM is here full blast, cramps were bad this morning. Just not a good day. Three more days to go so don't know whether the scale will be nice or not before Monday :)

10-26-2013, 12:38 PM
Well crap -- I'm not very good at this anymore! Weighing or dieting...lol. When last I posted (Wednesday?) I weighed 226 and I was sure I could whoosh away a few lbs of water weight and then move on from there. The very next day I stepped on teh scale and it was 230 -- and if that wasn't bad enough, the day after that was 232. I think I'm doing this wrong, and how on earth did I gain 6lbs in 3-4 days!!?? lol Okay, well...that was a wake up call.

I did not weigh myself this morning, so here is what I remember from the last few days...

Oct 22 -- 226.6
Oct 23 -- 230.2
Oct 24 --
Oct 25 -- 232.0 wth?

I have a trip in two weeks and at this rate I should weigh 250 by the time I go. Crazy!

Dolphin -- Hi! I lost 73 lbs in 2010-2011 and I notice the same thing, I have to stay very low for calories just to maintain my weight now.

Rennie!!! :hug: Yes yes yes, I need you to do this with me...only now I want to lose 10lbs in 2 weeks...lol Okay, okay, I will have to settle for a little less than that I guess. I'm going to try doing slimfast with just yogurt and veggies for a few days, i need to shock my system...I'm having so many food cravings! Starting this tomorrow. (Company coming tonight for sausage and peppers!) :hug:

10-26-2013, 12:54 PM
Angie- How frustrating is that?! In the end I found that when I wasn't losing going down even just 50 calories a day would boost my weight loss. Maybe give that a try?

10-27-2013, 12:47 PM
Thanks Dophin!

I'm still at 238 today so here is my plan:

Keep busy, when I'm not bored I'm not eating
When I do eat it will be protein so I feel full
Drink lots, mostly water
Keep moving -- I have errands to run, laundry to do and a house to clean -- burning calories should be a cinch today.

10-27-2013, 09:57 PM
Angie I don't know what on earth is going on with me. The cravings started and I was back up to 187.6 this morning. I don't know what it will be tomorrow. I did go to the gym today and I burned 590 calories. I walked 4 miles. I am trying to do a little running in there but it doesn't last for long. And today I pulled something in my thigh. I felt it when I had only 2-3 minutes left and I refused to stop. I just slowed down. I'm going to try to eat better tomorrow and prayerfully the mess that I have made this weekend will go away. :crossed:

10-28-2013, 11:16 PM
down 1.4 to 186.2 this morning not too bad, but not under my 185 like I'd like

burned 520 calories this evening on the treadmill, ate pretty much on point minus some shortbread cookies I couldn't seem to resist, smh.

Hope you all are doing well :hug:

10-29-2013, 10:30 AM
down another pound to 185.2 hoping to see better numbers in the next two days.

I hope you all are ok, I'm HERE alone again. LOL you all are probably saying (she didn't check in) for four days .... LOL now it's my turn :D

Have a great day everyone :hug:

10-30-2013, 11:49 PM
Angie and everyone where are you and how are you?

Weigh in this morning down .8 to 184.4

I have decided I want to be in the 170's by Thanksgiving. I think that will give me the will that I need not to over eat like I always do. The kids had their Harvest Fest this evening at church and they did like they normally do and sort their candy. They made a pile for me of what I like and my husband said, nope Mommy can't eat that, it's not on her plan. So they gave it to him. I didn't get upset, I just smiled but boy did I want some of that chocolate (ok all of that chocolate :D)

I'm trying to learn to run if that makes sense. I told my son that I can run about 30 seconds before I have to slow the treadmill down. He said that was nothing which was a little upsetting since I thought I was doing a little bit, but I've just got to keep at it. Then maybe I can actually do C25K and succeed :)

Ending October with a smile

Started October 1 @ 188.4, Ending October 31 @ 184.2, Loss 4.2lbs

Well at the end I only gained 1 lb. Not too bad considering I could not stop shoving crap in my mouth..

10-31-2013, 09:26 PM
LOL Lindy that is exactly how I feel. It's just been these last two weeks that I have had a little more control. I can't resist crackers. It appears that any kind of crackers make my mouth water even if they don't taste that great ... just sad :dizzy:
