Mara NICE WHOOSH!!! I'll cross my fingers it holds. Thanks for the recipe link I'll check it out next. I tried the black bean brownies posted somewhere else but brownies are my fav so healthy versions are all worth experimenting with lol

sue if only she would! I'm pretty sure baked goods are what caused my scale to go the wrong way this week, but I am back OP now so hopefully it'll turn back around tomorrow.

Oh, the carb count on those are scary! lol I wonder if the flour can be subbed with almond flour and the sugar with an alternative sweetener. When I decide to up my carb count maybe I will play around with it.

I did the unfrosted version about a year ago and thought they were pretty good. The carb count is a little better that way.

I've been losing a lot of weight this week - it's always easier for me to be really tight on diet when my husband is out of town and I just eat simply. I've been purposefully low on calories for a few days and it seems to have really gotten the scale moving.

So, first part of this challenge is achieved - I've lost the 5 pounds I planned for!

Now, the more difficult part - holding the line (or even better losing more) through the holidays

I've been putting off my holiday baking, and I'm going to do less than usual (it helps that I have a new baby in the house, nobody expects it all this year!) - but I'm not making any of the stuff that really tempts me this year either, just the stuff I make that people have specifically requested (and brownies - I still have leftover Easter chocolate in the freezer that is going in a batch or two of brownies...)

SW : 210.4
CW : 205.2 (-5.2!!! Goal!)
GW : 205.4

210.4 Nov 29
209.6 Nov 30

Mara/Sarah -Yahoo on the downdowndown!!

Worked out already today - like I said - nice to check that box off early in the day!! I was up very early today - wrapped some presents, finished the popcorn/cranberry garland for the tree, made a dessert for a meeting that I have to go to today - not planning to have any of it!! So far so good!! Lots of snow coming in tonight!! Getting ready to ditch my 18W jeans!! Wishing my apple waist was making more progress. I think the guideline is below 35 inches for women for heart health....hope everyone has a great weekend!!

PS. I consider myself too high risk so I don't eat any low carb baked goods - I really don't think I could recover....

Thank you Lulu and Mara I just let go... and I guess I am human and mess up.. its just so icky looking at that scale number GRRRRRRRR .. but also a kick in the keister to get back in the saddle for at least 7 days to Christmas (and then we have HAM... SALT on a FORK! lololol can't wait to see that number on the scale next Thursday LOLOLOL)

I so do want to be 244 on New Years... Welll I am walking 2.5+ miles outside with my friend who has health troubles.... He is breathing better (Hooray!) and I am getting a heck of alot more steps in a day (and staying away from the TV for a few extra hours too! LOL) So I hope the walking helps the water get outta town sooner!

May this day be a Great One for you all!

Hey all! I was super busy the last few days so wasn't able to get on here.

Sue- it is just water weight it'll flush back off again. Just back to induction til Christmas for you!!! I went a little crazy at a party on friday too, they had this AMAZING cheese dip but the only thing to dip into it was bread and chips and I had a couple cookies too.

lulu hope you trip is going well! you have really got the whole exercise routine down it seems! The times I did best with exercise was when I did it early too. It was right near my work so I would work out shower at the gym and go to work. I really need to get back in that habit.

mara you are doing AMAZING! keep it up!

Going to work out this morning!! Can't wait to get home tomorrow - last work day before vacation!!! Yippee!!

Taking my kids to Beyonce on Friday!! Baby girl is going to "lose her mind" over this concert!!

I wish I had taken before pictures because I know it would have made me realize where I really started at - sometimes I still see the same person because I don't have a reference point.....

OH Lulu.. what a blast to go to the concert! HAVE FUN! Our mirrors take along time to readjust themselves. I have taken years and years to train mine to make me look thinner when I was over 300 lbs... now being less the mirror just does not know what to do. Its like we have to train it everyday! (You must look AWESOME!)

Pixikat,,, oooo Cheese dip YUMMY! that is hard to stay away from especially when you can't use your fingers! LOL... Salt is a bane and may we survive this next week and come out on the other side happy and determined!

Good Going Mara!.. you are so much closer to 230's than ever! Very happy for you! and my friend is doing better everytime we walk.... Last night he had a cold so we only made it 2 miles... but I am proud of him. He is also getting alittle happier and more social! Exercise..... does the MIND good!
