Hi ladies : )

Jacqui, ty! My rings are loose tonight so I think I got rid of those extra fluids! Fablynne, thanks. Hope you had a great day too, that you all did.

I had a good day. I picked up a roast chicken (as a matter of fact 2 of them) and had that along with a salad tonight. I got an extra one to eat some for lunch or dinner again tomorrow night. I didn't have too much of it last week and after having a breather from it for a bit, I don't mind to have it again. I do lose weight when I eat it so I try to have it for dinner when I can, that and fish. They are delicious too, they cook them on the rotisserie. I eat the white meat, no skin. Working on my water as we speak.
DH had to go pick up some parts after work so I didn't go for a walk with him and managed a short one myself. It was cooooooold on the route this afternoon/evening. The route is near the water and there was a pretty cool sea breeze in the air! Friday, we are due to hit 70 degrees! The weatherman said it will be the warmest we have had in the past 5 months and Oh boy does that sound devine! I am going to try and get to bed early tonight and do as much as I can tomorrow so that maybe I can sneak in a little time to catch some rays on Friday! Well girls, that is all my news for now. I hope you all had a good day and night and awaken to a good day tomorrow! I will catch you all tomorrow, sleep well .

Goodmorning ladiesssssssss

Well I weighed in on the wii and I am up approx. 1/2 lb! (since last Fridays WI). The only thing I can do now is get rid of the extra and continue on with my week. Plan of attack is to have it be off by tomorrow! lol. This is tricky as I am sure you all know, we cannot often control such things but I am hoping with another good day today ......so anyways girls, I will report in again tomorrow morning ok?

I need to get a move on but wanted to wish you all a great day. Today is our new day to our new week! We have 2 weeks to go. Let's all make it a good day. Catch you all soon

My weight has had a challenge keeping up with my weird eating lately being all over the place, but I've really watched portions and all, so I am hopeful that I can still reach my April goals. So far, I've been very active over here, but it's been VERY different...I'm mostly doing gardening and walking. I need to probably up my intensity and stuff, but thank God things are still going the right way in general!
Everyone on here is doing well. Sorry to hear about all the injuries, but you ladies are still working at it and posting on here, so you're still being pro-active and not just letting it keep you down, so GREAT JOB!

Looks like I wasn't alone in my struggles over the past few days, But I am glad to see I am in good company on getting back on track!!! I am helping a friend get ready for her wedding on Saturday! It has been a little crazy around here for sure! I am trying to stay close to on plan as possible, between Easter, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners.......I'll be happy to maintain at this point! Pray for me girls!!!

Fullsteamahead, I was absolutely rolling on the floor after reading your message to cakebatter- I want to be at my pre "eater" weight too!! LOL- I really needed a good chuckle to break the stress patterns that are building! Thanks for the typo! You made my day!!!

cakebatter, WTG on your mileage! you are kicking butt! I am sooo proud of you! Your 5k will be a breeze. We would love to see a pic of you at the finish line! Like RockY Balboa!! And It would make an awesome avatar! good luck! We'll be rooting for you!

Yay Jaqui on your 2 pounds! That is Fantastic!!! I bet it feels fantastic too!

HI Fablynne, Savora WELCOME! You have found a great bunch of chicks here!

Thanks for your support guys!
Things aren't going as smoothly as I planned, but I'm getting there. Little did I know I'm not the best at just jumping back into things, I have to take it a step at a time. So I've been doing pretty well with water and diet, but I dread exercise. I miss the time when it didn't feel like a chore. I actually did 30 minutes of belly dancing tonight, but went a bit over my calorie limit. :/ Water is easy, food is harder, exercise is the hardest, so I think I'll re-incorporate those things one at a time in that order. It shouldn't be so hard to get back on track then.
Sometimes it doesn't feel like I've lost almost 60lbs, because it came off so easily (mostly because I stopped the medications that made me gain in the first place), so even though I've lost so much weight I'm still very much a newbie. This is the first time I've actually kept track of everything and really put effort in to this. The fact that I went off track is kind of jarring, I wouldn't have noticed it much before since I didn't keep track of anything.
Also, I stepped on the scale this morning and was 315 again (pre-April weight). Oh well, I'm gonna get this back, I know it. I'm determined. It feels like I'm on training wheels for the time being, but I'm going to get back into the swing of things again in no time.

Good morning gals!

Sorry to be quiet over the last two days. I have literally been running around full out for two days and haven't even sat down at the computer at all. (I hate days like that! ) Anyway, I went back and read all the posts and it sounds like we are all committed - or re-committed - to our goals for the month.

Lene & Hattie & terapet~ I am sorry to hear about your injuries. I hope that you are doing better real soon.

FSA~That 1/2 pound is on its way OUTTA HERE! While I still have a bit of a bruise on my leg, the run I did on Tuesday was the first time I could do any kind of impact exercise (6 weeks!) without it hurting so I was happy with that. Thanks for your support!

Jacqui & Cake & Savora~Awesome job on the losses!

Wifey~Sugar = BAD. Sugar = BAD. Sugar = BAD. (Just keep repeating it to yourself.)

Lewis~Wedding stuff! How fun! But it can be super tough to keep track of your eating. You keep watching it and you'll get on track as soon as things settle down next week. I know you will.

MsP~Good for you for mixing up your exercise. I think gardening and walking totally help and now that spring has sprung, it feels soooo good to do stuff outside. If you want to up the intensity you could come to my house and haul all the debris from the big ice storm that is strewn all over the yard.

fenderella~I agree with FSA. When you are off track is exactly when it is MOST necessary to check in with the chicks. Don't be too hard on yourself. You have done great. You will get back on track. You will lose the weight. AND you'll look mar-va-lous darling. Baby steps is definitely the way to go. Everybody has different problems trying to incorporate this new lifestyle (water, food, exercise) into their lives in a meaningful, long-term way. We're with you 100%.

I have been doing better - not great - but better on my eating this week. I didn't do so well on my water yesterday and am feeling the effects this morning so I am really going to work on that today. I got in a good workout yesterday of weight lifting and 30 mins on the elliptical so that's something. Have an appointment this morning and then am going to try to work in the yard all afternoon since it is going to be a beautiful day here. (FSA~ 70!!!! I am sooo excited!)

Hope everyone has a terrific, OP day!!!! Two weeks....We can do it girls!!!

Hi Everyone! I'm excited for the second half of April! And my DH is getting me a Y membership, yay!! Thanks so much for all your support!

Urock, Good job on the better eating and exercise! Be sure to get that water in today. I have started filling up 3 24-oz bottles of water in the morning, and that way I know they should be empty by the time I go to bed at night. It helps! I'm thinking about adding a 4th.

Fenderella, you can do it girlie! You can get back on track! Don't worry about being your pre-April weight. Just concentrate on what you can do in the next two weeks to make yourself healthier and to feel better about your efforts! I'm with you--I do not like exercise, but it really does make a big difference, doesn't it? You can do it!

Lewis, congrats on getting back on track!! You've had such a hectic schedule recently and it's wonderful that you haven't lost sight of wanting to eat and live a healthy lifestyle. Good for you! If you maintain, that's not gaining and that's a victory!

Wifey, I think you'll have better luck with the sugary stuff now that you've cut out the pop. I have mentioned before in other threads that I am a Diet Dr. Pepper-aholic, and yet I had to completely cut it out because it's a trigger for me! Of all things! But it's true. I've tried to incorporate it just a little bit into my diet plan time and time again, only to crave sweets so much that I blow my diet! So I think you'll see a difference. And good job on your exercise and renewed efforts!

Ms_P, great job on watching your portions and staying active! The weather is finally cooperating for gardening and walking! Yay!

FSA, you'll have that 1/2 lb off in no time! You have such a great attitude and determination, and I just know the next two weeks are going to be great for you!

Cake, fantastic news on being pre-weight! Yay! I know you're going to give the rest of April your very best! Keep it up!

To all the rest of our ladies, good luck for the remainder of the month!

Hey everyone! I'm happy to report I found a WW meeting near my new home and went last night to find I'd lost 1.2# since last week's weigh-in. That made me feel SO good after the crazy week of moving. It's still crazy, but now I know I can do it even during this busy-ness! Yay! Hope you all continue towards those goals...meet them or not, we are giving those fat cells a run for their money!! LOL
