Welcome back Mara!
I'm sorry Sue. Those are the worse gains when you know you've been good and there is no reason for it! Did you push yourself harder than usual? That could cause a gain. Hope it goes away quick!

I stayed away from the peanuts lol and drank extra water yesterday!

Mara - welcome back!$

Carol, I think you'll wrap this up tomorrow!

Inching downwards, although still in the range of +\- 1 that I consider a holding pattern

Thanks everyone! I missed you guys.

Sorry Sue for going MIA. I knew I had regained and I was disappointed. If I am being honest I did not want to post and have to acknowledge it. But then I came to my senses and realized that it happens and with all of the support on here I can do this and get to to my goal.

Mara, I think we've all been there. I'm glad you're back. At the risk of repeating myself, let me tell you about the story that made me know I would finally get in control of my weight. It was about a year and a half ago that I came across the story of Maxcy Filer. I have "Maxcy 48" on my bathroom mirror and on the cover of my journal.

His is the story of persistence, of having a goal in mind, failing over and over, and of keeping steady in the pursuit - and ultimately being successful. Read more here : Maxcy Filer failed the bar exam 47 times, but he took it 48! I have "Maxcy 48" on my bathroom mirror and on my journal cover.

Sarah thank you for sharing the story! I had not seen it before, but it is very inspiring. I cannot imagine the joy of receiving that final letter, or the other emotions he must have felt in that moment. It is overwhelming to just think about. But I feel that is what it will be like to reach my goal. Disbelief, hope, panic, happiness, relief, appreciations, gratitude, etc. I will probably cry from all the emotions. LOL

Sue I hate when my hands and feet swell. They feel tight and it hinders by coordination and mobility/flexibility.

Well I finally saw 229.8 on the scales this morning which also means I have lost 5 lbs. I want to congratulate everyone on the lbs they have lost or positive steps they have made this challenge. I'm so thankful that each of you are here!

Mara I so glad you decided to come back. Please know that we will never judge you for a weight gain and that we understand your struggles and want to help you through them.

Sue you came back from your mental break and really turned things around. You should be really proud. That water weight will be gone very soon. No Peanuts! You are such a cheerleader and motivator. Thank you!

Sarah I really admire how you are sticking with your new plan and patiently waiting out your holding pattern! I really enjoyed the story you shared about Maxcy Filer. Ha my story would be...every year for 25 years Carol started a diet and failed. But she dieted 26 years. This will be the year I succeed and my # will be "Carol 26". So I'm going to write that on my mirror!
Could someone please start the new challenge thread, I don't know how to.
