Calee - thank you for the kind words!! I read 3FC everyday and joined Sue's challenge last week!! I feel I'm in a holding pattern fluctuating at 169 and I'm reluctant to modify anything right now! I wore a pair of my goal pants on Monday and that felt great!! 5 pounds will make a big difference!! Two things are going on right now....after all this time my husband wants to focus on losing 25 pounds...WOW!! Blew me away!! And Baby Girl is being impacted by all the comments about my weight loss ....much harder to handle...when she says " I think you weigh less than me now!!" Yikes....and I want to be supportive and know she is ok!! She has the same struggle with weight that I've had all my life....I want to help her make good choices but not be "that mom"... You know the critical one....today the struggle is real!!

Lulu, my son writes for a living. We once saw an author speak. We randomly stumbled on her at a bookstore in New Orleans. What stood out most for my son was evidenced by our conversation later that afternoon. She said a person can't be both your critic and your supporter. He asked me to be his biggest supporter, which I've always been. The world is full of critics. Be your daughters biggest fan. Lead by example. Cheer her victories that she shares with you. Hopefully most won't be about weight but joys in her life. My son is 40 and we are incredibly close. We travel together every year because we enjoy each other. He gets home from Berlin as often as he can. I think the fan/critic thinking is so beneficial. You go for your best self. Everyone has their own path and your DD will be just fine.

Still inching towards goal here!

Pixie, you are moving down! Excellent!

Easily, I love that you keep seeing new lows!
Breaking out of the 220's is a really really really big deal!

My friend and I decided that pulling an all nighter studying would be a good idea, so because I never went to bed and woke up, I never weighed. I work til noon then I will be crashing until 6pm-ish, maybe I will weigh then.

In other news, doctor prescribed me Adderall for my ADHD yesterday, I am interested to see if it helps with my weightloss

Thanks to Sarah for sending me here! I feel silly, I've seen this thread, I thought it was old lol -- thinking past July 4th HA!

But accountability is great for me so I'm psyched to get started here!


Goals:
Continue to stick to Induction with no slip ups
Weigh Daily
Walk my driveway (over a mile with steep inclines to and from) 3x a week
Continue counting carbs daily
Make sure I keep veggie carbs in that 12-15 range
Loose 12 lbs

SW 340.6
CW 340.6
GW 328.6


For those counting steps --- any recommondations on a pedometer? That's not $100 lol Prob $25 is the most I'm willing to spend right now.

Hey, do you have any suggestions for a FOCUS week topic for next week?

I'm off for our first kid-free weekend in 2 years - expecting I will NOT be happy with he scale on Monday...

Ideas?

Sue don't let the scale dent your happiness! You had a great few days, I'm sure, spending time with those you love. And unless you went crazy binging all that is just water weight that'll flush off in a few days. Just get back on it now that the celebrations are done and I am sure you will still be right on track to hit goal by 7/4

4/21 - 250.6
4/22 - 247.1
4/23 - 243.5
4/24 - 236.7
4/25 - 242.4
4/26 - Dnw
4/27 - 242.6
4/28 - 241.1
4/29 - 240.3
4/30 - 239.3
5/01 - 240.6
5/02 - 241.6
5/03 - 239.5
5/04 - 240.0
5/05 - 240.2
5/06 - 241.0
5/07 - 239.5
5/08 - DNW
5/09 - 238.8

So I like seeing a new number in the 30s, but I suspect I am dehydrated from all the caffiene on wed night during the all nighter. I will see what happens.

Good Morning!

I found a new burger place last night. I love me a Good organic burger. I live in a condo with no grill and I can't make a great burger at home. Organic meat, organic cheese and lettuce. Can't beat that for $10. Generally they are $15 but this was more a student cafe. Perfect without the bun on a bed of lettuce.

I'm excited to soon jump under 149. I went to a thrift store and bought a new pair of Calvin Klein capri pants for the safari. Still a touch snug though friend said I can wear today. Size 6! So these are my safari goal pants. I want them to be loose. I'm really a size 8. 6 is my ultimate dream. Please remember I joined LCF in 1999 and have been working towards this since I joined OA in 1989. This has not been a straight nor easy journey to where I am today. These last 10 are so difficult.

Next weeks personal focus or me will be to continue to keep my carbs and calories low. Ive got th other pieces in place. I find it tough to do more than just say hi in the other thread. This is where I focus.

Have a fun day!

Sue, hydrate hydrate hydrate!

Pixie, I see you peeking at a new low of the last two weeks!

Sarah, kid free!!! You have fun! I came home from my first kid free with sinus infection, bronchitis and double pneumonia. Good thing I was off partying with my doctors wife. Instead of the hospital I ended up in their guest room for two weeks.

Ali, you're off to a great start!

Lulu, is it easier to fix meals with your husband dieting?

Let's all have fun today!

Calee, you have come a long way, baby! Congrats on the size 6!!! Thanks! I like seeing new numbers, too and appreciate them now more than ever!!! Much better than me complaining about stagnation, for sure.

Pixi, I hope the meds work for you. I hear that it really suppresses the appetite.

Welcome Ali!

Have a great trip, Sarah!

Sue, great job on the steps!!! YOU KNOW those birthday lbs don't count! They will be gone quickly.

Great attitude LuLu!

WTG Carol!!!

Happy Anniversary to me!! One year in Onederland!! Yahoo!! And 365 days later I'm 30 pounds down from there..slow but I'll take it!!!

Ali - Wow super long driveway!! That's awesome!!
Sarah - Ignore the scale Monday...we all go through it ups and downs!
Sue - Just a blip!'
Easily - Congrats on a new low!!! So exciting!'
Newme - I can start a thread on exercise...
Calee - HA!! "Dieting" for my husband means 2 pieces of toast instead of 4!! He has a way to go to re-define his menu!! Carefully treading to encourage him!! I still cook carbs...I just don't eat them!!

Best wishes for an on-plan day!!!

OMG I do not know what my trainer did to me yesterday but my whole shoulder upperback area is KILLING me. I think it was Bear Crawls, it was the first time I've done those.

So on the school front, I took my third final yesterday, it went really well. I was between an A and B in that class and am now solidly in the A range. I will get an A or an A- depending on participation points and (possibly) if he round a 92.739 to a flat 93 to bump me up... I hate the +/- system it can seriously screw your GPA up
