Well good news Sue, the whoosh fairy has made it to GA so she should be heading to FL next. I do hope she visits here for a few days but I will try not to be greedy. (Thanks for releasing her Sarah)

Hormones? Eating has been on plan with the new dietary changes. Carbs are up a bit because of many more veggies and some fruit - maybe those extra carbs pushed me out of ketosis? Calories have been fine hunger low, I'm doing everything well so I'm not worrying about it unless it the weight seems sticky...

This is yesterday's weigh in. Will be back later with today's.

Sarah...That's a very good attitude to have about the weight. I believe I remember you saying that this weight decade has given you trouble in the past so it sounds like your body tries to resist dropping lower than the 90s. I remember reading somewhere that our bodies have "set points" that are harder to work through. Just stay on plan and I'm sure it will happen for you!

Sue...where are you? We miss you. Get back in here!

Newme.. I am here! I have had my heart and soul go on vacation and I was lost, found, lost and now hopefully found again. Thank you for your shout out and Maincyn's post both helped me shake my head to get re-motivated (now for the 3rd time in 6 weeks) I thank you so much! I also see that you are doing GREAT! Hooray!

Sarah...It could be hormones.. sometimes you just never know why you retain water as it is not fat (unless you are overeating).. its a big sigh!

Me.. I am way up (ate Multigrain Scoops, Reese's eggs for meals.. NOT GOOD) so need to get thru the sugar cravings again. I know reading your accomplishments will steer me in the right direction! 236.2 this morning... Will be part of the next 5 lb challenge as right now I would have to lost 8+ lbs LOL

Happy Monday!

Sue...glad your back! Haha I wouldn't give up on this challenge. I think it took A WHILE for us to get through the last one You've been doing this for a long time, so of course you are going to get discouraged at times when the weight loss is slow or nonexistent. I hope that you and everyone else is still around to cheer me on when it gets slower for me cause I'm going to need a lot of motivation! (I know this because... dang it... Reece' s eggs for breakfast aounds awesome lol).

Thanks for the encouragement, Carol & Sue.

I'm carefully tracking foods and calories and macros, so I'll have data to help pinpoint things should I need to. For now I'm going to just try to stay the course with my AIP diet and see how it goes, although the urge to drop calories & veggie carbs back is very strong, I'd so love to be out of the 190s (good memory, Carol, indeed it's a setpoint for me!). This AIP diet puts a huge emphasis on nutritional density and getting plenty (lots) of vegetables into the diet. I am absolutely certain that too many veggies is not what made me fat, and in fact I do think I feel better eating this way. I'm not sure, however, if I can LOSE weight with my carbs this high, even if they are mostly from green vegetables. But I'm not in a race, and maybe it's worth riding this out for a few weeks to see how it goes before I make any decisions to cut back.

Your welcome Sarah. If the new plan makes you feel better then I think it's definitely worth it to give it a chance. I think it's good to change things up every so often so that the body doesn't "adapt" and stop losing.

Well, I'm now considering this my body's normal routine of hanging out at a weight for a while before moving down. 10 days hovering around 193-194...
