Easily amused - Sadly, finals are not over for me for awhile. Finals week officially starts tomorrow, the two I already had were because the professors decided to have the final the last day of class rather than wait. I have one for my research design and analysis on friday and one for cognitive psychology a week from today. I took thurs-sun off from studying but starting today I am back at the books.

sue - I am having a margarita tonight too! a couple friends and I decided that cinco de mayo warranted margaritas and mexican food as a study break. The place we are going doesn't have sugarfree "skinny" margaritas, the small is 23 carbs so I am trying to plan my day accordingly.

Morning, FINALLY in a new decade. It has been over 10 years and even then, I was only there for a minute before I gained it back.

Sue, you are up only a few ounces after a birthday celebration? Kudos. Please eat carefully today. I generally how gains 1-2 days later. I'm always angry when it's 2 days because I feel cheated.

Easily, wow, just wow.

Pixie, good luck with finals.

Sarah, you are so close to overweight!!!

I'm hanging in. Went back to Pilates yesterday. Ankle still swollen.

Started Atkins on 4/30/14. Lost 30 or so lbs on Atkins when I was 16. Haven't done it since then. Gained a massive amount and I'm Ready to change my life since working through a bunch of emotional issues.
SW: 313
CW: 305.5
July 4th GW: 280

Additional Goals:
*Track & Weigh Daily
*Be able to walk 7 miles a day- at least 4 days a week (To my Grandmother's house for tea. Maybe I'll even save a little gas money using all this Fat Power to get around. You never know!)
* I've got to get over the fear of everyone looking at me out walking. ( I live in a small town where everyone knows everyone else and I feel Judged and ashamed for letting myself get this big. I've worked and socialized outside of this small community for those reasons and I have to stop letting my weight hold me back!)
*Drink 64 oz+ water a day
I'll check in daily to report weight, exercise, and water consumed.

Something has to change and that something is ME.
I'm Really Excited to be here! I think This is the kind of support I have Needed. You All are Amazing and Inspire Me!
Keep up the Awesome work, everyone!!

The margarita was delicious sue! As was the steak fajita salad I got with it I only ate a few of my friends chips so the was a win!

This weekend was lots of bending/breaking the rules and the scale is showing it. Back at it starting today. My carbs were a bit high but they were all veggies not sugar/flour based at least.

Welcome Renee!!! You got this!!!

Renee, great to have you here with us.

I really get it about feeling judges. Thing is though, hiding doesn't help. I hav seen lots of big women who are stunning. Self confidence is really appealing. If people are going to talk trash, there is nothing we can do about their poor judgement. But you can be a big winner by getting out and walking. I'm old so I don't have to worrynaboutbwhatbpeople think anymore. I wish I knew that 30 years ago.

You get out there and strut your way to tea. We all deserve a great life, regardless of the size of our pants.

Let us know how we can support you.

Carol, yes I'm laying off the spray! I haven't had any leg cramps so I don't need it right now. I do feel less swollen in the morning.

You're right, I love watching a good race. I think the 220's are a really tough plateau to break. I spent so many years at 222.

Welcome Renee!! You can do it!!! I started walking last August after about 8 months on Atkins - I couldn't change all my habits at once!! I think you will be surprised by people as you keep changing during this journey!! Some people comment on my weight loss, some commented on keeping it up even on cold days, etc!! Just keep "walking toward fit" and away from fat!! We all start in a different place but we are all moving in the same direction!!

Calee - I think you made the comment about being in the 220s for a long time - me too - I spent my entire adult life there!!

Sue/wannaskipandlaugh - holy smoke!! Almost 100 pounds off!! I am so proud of you!!! And thank you for your encouragement for the past 18 months!! (Almost 18)

Best wishes for an on-plan day!! Lulu

Great job everyone! Welcome Renee!
Carol, I'm sure things will really slow down for me now, but hopefully I will be following you into Onederland! I have a birthday and a long trip coming up this summer so there will be some breaks.
I had horrible heartburn all day ysd that started after I walked 5 miles.

Have a fabulous day!

Pixikat - Oh don't you love those Margarita's! Yummy.. well that is all for me until next year.. but it just tastes better with the memory! I too had the Crab Nachos and leftovers last night... Just Crab, Cheese and sour cream.. but the tri colored chips are what did me in! After today I am back in the saddle!! (Birthday Pizza tonight with parents!)

I agree Calee... Who gives a Bleep what others say. Its what we say to ourselves that matters! We need to believe in ourselves and love ourselves. We are all unique and Marvelous people!

Lulu-- I too am so grateful for you! (You are showing me the way! with your patience) I cannot wait to do the -100 lb dance! Delayed a few days now... but it will happen next week I am hoping! WOOHOO

Good morning!

Everyone is doing so awesome! Lulu, I feel like I haven't seen you as much lately, was happy to see your post come up. Yes, I spent most of my life at 222. It was my set point until I went up to 249.8. I'm so happy to not live there anymore.

Well, I am apparently going to inch my way to my July 4th goal. Ate great yesterday, exercised 90 minutes. 2 ounces gone. I must be riding on the back of a snail.

Sue, thanks for the heartburn remedy! I tried some ysd and it seemed to help.

Calee, you are doing great! Inching down is good. I'm doing the same and absolutely love it! I have a long way to go, but I'll take a lb per week in the right direction very happily.

Pixi, WTG!
