Sarah... I am so sorry you are still in a stall... Woosh days should be coming right around the corner!

I had a bad 3 days and am not posting (and I have not weighed myself either) for at least 5 days until I can get back on track. I am afraid of what the scale says... and I need to get that commitment mental attitude back in the forefront of my mind again and push.

I hope you all had a wonderful and lovely Easter (Passover too) with your family and friends!

SARAH.. I knew a woosh was in your near future! Hooray! It will stick and then go even lower!

Me.. not doing so well... It used to be that I felt guilty when I slipped (walking/eating and going to the store and telling myself.. nope I can't have that).. but now my restriction on my mind and wants is slipping.. I have got to find that commitment again as I don't feel remorse as badly as I had. I want to do this. I have a goal in mind and need to get there! I really needed to post this to get it out in writing! Thank you all!

Sue, sorry you're struggling. What's that goal in your mind? Of all the choices I've made this time, the one I'm the most happy with is keeping all my focus on staying engaged in managing my weight long term (instead of focusing on a certain number). It's mainly because I am clear this is the mindset I'll need to maintain as well.

That drop didn't stick (I see it as a preview of what will come soon though). Day 21 of holding pattern (insert expletive here!!!)

NEWME... I missed your post.. you had a NICE Loss (and thank you!)

SARAH... I betcha that lower number will come back again tomorrow... Did you drink more water yesterday?

MARA where are you??? I am in the same boat as you! So lets do this together!

I was going to wait until Friday.. but Pixikat's honesty of posting her up weight..got me thinking I can post my uptick again (like always) as posting makes it real and it is real and not a figment of my imagination.. So I have to own it and get "over" it! and move forward! THANK GOD for understanding and helpful and lovely lovely ladies here!

Hey Sue I am here. Sorry I have not been feeling good so I have been more maintaining than losing. Still trying to get back on track though. I have an appointment with a gyno, that my regular doctor referred me to, next week. Hopefully we can figure out what is going on. I am a little nervous.

Sue, thanks for being brave & posting the number, it does make me put my stagnation frustration in perspective!

Mara, hope the gyno helps figure it out - and hope it's nothing serious

My body apparently really REALLY likes the 188 point... Day 22...

Sarah that is a great perspective to have on losing. Making it about the time managing your weight rather than the weight loss is a great idea!

Sue I think you made your recommitment when you posted your uptick!: Glad you are already shedding the water weight! You can reach your mini goal! And thank you for being here for us!!

Hope everything is ok Mara!

Thanks guys. My appointment is Tuesday. I will let you know how it goes.

I did not weigh today. I woke up late.

Sarah I hope the scale gets in line and shows you a whoosh soon.

Sue way to go! The other lbs will be gone in a snap.

Newme you are close! I think I see a win for you tomorrow.
