Lulu! Happy Anniversary! That is quite an accomplishment to have shed and additional 30 unwanted pounds this year! I had to laugh about 2/4 slices if toast.

Pixie, way to go on acing that class.

I'm so glad it's the weekend. these last 4 months have been my most stressful on any job in the last 45 freaking years. I think it's going to get better. I want to hang in there because I'm only 17 months from Medicare. I definitely don't want to retire for several years because I love the money for traveling. Retirement will mean more budgeting and less extra like great vacations.

Time for me to try to really allign with Atkins 72 to get off this mini plateau.

Thanks everyone!!! Re-dedicating to Atkins to see where I can be at the end of May!! Keep think about JerseyGyrl's mantra...if you want something you never had...you must be willing to do something you've never done.

Pixi - I had to google bear crawls - yikes!!! I don't think I could do that exercise yet!! Probably is why you are in pain....hope it gets better real soon!!

Calee - Thanks for poking me in the butt....I needed it to get motivated again and move towards goal!!

Happy Mothers Day to any mothers. I woke to a lovely email from Zach. Will Skype later if our timing works. He is 9 hours ahead of me.

I ate on plan yesterday. Walked a 5k. Maybe sodium? Dunno. Had a minor blip today. Easier for me on weekdays while at work. Nothing to nibble on.

Yesterday: 1073 calories, 20 carbs-6 fiber. Shouldn't be. Weight gainer. Oh well. This week push is to be down to less than 148. I can do it!

Morning everyone!

Calee, my scale has been acting UP lately, too. Good for you staying on plan!

Lulu, good luck on your re-dedication to Atkins! Jersey's mantra is a good one.

Pixi, hope you are less sore today!

Ali, you are doing great! 160 acres. Wow, I can't even imagine. 10 acres kills me and I only keep up the front six.

Everyone is doing so well!

Calee : love the goal size 6 capris, that is great! And especially thanks for telling your story, debunking the myth that this happens overnight - we see so many people join this site, complain they're not losing as fast as they "should" and then never reappear - we can think our own journeys aren't "on track" but in fact it's a long, winding road...

Lulu : wow, 30 pounds down, thanks for showing the way! Your steadiness is an inspiration to me

We had a really nice weekend. Slept without listening for the kids. Took a hot bath with nobody barging in, nor wanting to join me (well, husband wanted to join but it was a small tub!). Did a lot of walking saw some nice art. Ate really really well - and we'll just say that I've "carb backloaded" for several months, and put it behind me and get back on track today.

Weight is up a few pounds, as I expected, will put the numbers in later this week - I suspect the scale might move up again in the next day or two before it starts back down, so I'll post the truth but only once I've seen the downward numbers start to appear again so that I'm in the right frame of mind...

Good morning!

Sarah, I'm glad you had a lovely weekend!

Easily, your scale will start down again. Congrats on closet cleaning. Changing sizes is a big deal!

I had a Mother's Day splurge of 2 cups of organic raspberries and two slices of mini Roma tomato rounds with fresh Burrata cheese and pesto. I ate out twice. Once a juicy bunless cheeseburger th was stellar. Second was at my neighbor upstairs. I ate the tomatoes, 1 pork rib and some lettuce. Came in at 22 net carbs. Today it's back to very little except meat and eggs. Time to get scale moving this week.

I think I have to keep my eye on a weekly goal.

Sue, are you back to very low carbs? Let's get those pounds off. What's your game plan this week? what's your main focus? Have you had nough birthday treats? If I remember correctly you still have celebrations this week? You can choose to celebrate how far you've come instead of indulging. Is it your dad's birthday? He'd rather see you healthy than indulging in cake. Do this for you.

I have to do something differently because I'm still sitting at my new setpoint. In January it was 153, now it's 149. I've been out of Pilates for a month due to ankle injury, but I'm trying a class tonight. I'm hoping I'm good to go back this week.

Yesterday: 1058 calories. 12 carbs, 1 fiber. Walk 30 minutes. I'm going to try lowering protein from meat this week. Might add in a protein shake with 3 carbs.

Congrats on your anniversary Lulu!
Way to go Ali! Great job staying on plan on mother's day!

UhOh Sue...time to tow the line lol. Seriously...Calee and I want to see you make the 100 lb goal!! It is staring you in the face...so I'm wondering... can you hit that 100 lb mark before I get to onederland? You up for a little challenge? (Or RACE as Calee would call it). Just let me know

Ah...this week on the peds floor was pure torture! A very stressful week...one of those that makes you feel you deserve carbs lol, plus it was nurses week so there was food everywhere! Keylime cupcakes with cream cheese icing (my weakness, just the icing lol), assorted pastries, subs and chips, and then the last day...doughnuts. 12 long hrs with doughnuts staring me in the face begging me to eat them So...I ate 2 small bite of my favorite one (which of course is the worst one with icing in the center and chocolate on top). Overall I think I did fantastic! But it was a STRUGGLE!
Good luck to everyone this week. May we all recover from the various celebrations that have tried to sabotage us!!

Calee, Sounds like your "splurge" was well controlled. WTG! I hope your pilates class goes well.
Tell me if this is none of my business, but what do the * mean on your weigh ins?
Maybe you saying it made my scale move. So thanks!

Sue, great job on the steps!!!
Thanks again for the heartburn remedy (ACV). I have been taking 1T daily and haven't had any more problems.

Ali, yay for staying on plan during the special occasion day! Congrats on your 3.6 lbs gone!

Carol, you are doing fantastic!!! Oy on the cupcakes. I think you showed great restraint.

Hey all! sorry I went silent, I went to my aunt and uncles place over the weekend and came home yesterday morning, then I spent all day yesterday cramming for last night's final. but now I am done!!! woot! but only for 2 weeks lol boo summer classes

anyways, my diet lasted 24 hours at my aunts house, which is 23 hours longer than it usually lasts so small victory I suppose. It was my cousin rebekah's birthday so cupcakes were my downfall. then yesterday I had a personal pizza for lunch and a sub for dinner as I had been craving both for ages.

back into it today though! I will be back with regularly scheduled weigh ins tomorrow

Calee.. I am so sorry your ankle is still so sore... I hope that it heals quickly! Soon you will be kicking Butt and doing your Pilates! I see 147.8 for you on the scale this weekend...

I am back on Induction plus nuts (gotta stop those) and Friday ALL DAY seminar at Disney World so THEIR food.. but I am bringing in a cooler with Boars Head meat and cheese roll ups for lunch and dinner...try and Sunday... Dad's birthday and that is already going to be a meal that I am not going to be so good at (Favorite Italian restaurant that I have not been for 4 years!). I will do my best up until then. 147.8 sounds so good for you!

Pixikat... So glad your finals are done done done! Hooray for you! and Great Grades too! Time to let the stress roll off your shoulders and take care of you! Fly to the 220's!!!!

Ali.. GREAT for you for staying on track for Mother's day! You are amazing and inspiring! WOW!

Pixi, yay for making it 24 hours at your aunts house.
Great that finals are over and enjoy your 2 weeks off.

Thanks Sue! I betcha that weight is going to fly off of you now!
Things have slowed down for me and the scale is playing with me, but if I can net a lb off per week, I will be absolutely thrilled. I might just see Onederland in 2014...
Interesting having a seminar at Disney. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it.
