Good to see all of you are doing good. I feel so awful today, mostly job caused. I wanna eat everything in sight! My thighs are still sore from the trainer session Tuesday. I'm off this weekend and I'm hitting the gym.

I am so excited to be posting this evening because *drumroll* please.....I lost 3.4 pounds. Yay for me. I weigh 184! I am so freaking happy I don't know what to do. That puts at 4 pounds to hit my end of the month goal!!
Everyone is doing so well and we are just off great start!
Jasonslea Sorry to hear that but good thing your legs are so sore! That means you must have worked very hard.
Hattie Yay for exercise! Glad you are here!
saramommy WTG on 2 pounds. It's so good doesn't it. Looks like your changes have paid off!
sjdphcWTG on two weeks at the gym lady! OMG I have skipped out of early many of days to make sure I claim my spot on the machine of my choice. It's a good feeling to want to go the gym!
Wannabe It is good you made the decison to rest since you are not feeling well.
Msperception yeah i hear you on eating out after WW. MY mom and I always get sushi after the meeting

Phew, long day, but I did well. Especially diet wise, I stayed under 1500 calories (though I'm allowing myself 1800-2000), and learned how to make low-fat chicken paninis. I didn't get a chance to exercise though, since I had to babysit my nephews all day. I was considering taking them on a walk with me, but I wasn't sure if I could hold on to both at once (they're 3 and 4).
But other than that April is starting out really well. I even hopped on my new scale earlier and I've lost another pound, so that makes 2 this week.
I wanna read everyone's replies but I gotta go to bed so I'm gonna wait until the morning. I hope you're all doing wonderfully!

Hi, good morning sweet girls Wishing everyone a great day. It really is so nice to come in and read everyones news!
All went well here yesterday, how could it not? I don't like dark meat, yuck! lol Anyhow girls, I seem to have found that balance where I have fun but lose weight a t the same time and that really rocks....sort of liek Ms Perception was saying too! I tell you though, I don't like dark meat (I prefer white chicken meat) and after all the hounding they give us to be more healthy, wellllllllllll.. let's see some more healthy meals in the restaurants! lol
It makes me mad! What about the commercials! l ol. Okay I will
Hattie, hello there! I wish you a speedy recovery girl.
Lea, hang in there darling! hugs! you keep on trucking!
Jacqui , yay! keep up the great work!
MsPerception, rock it girl
cake batter, amazing! yay! that is so awesome!!!!
fenderella, yay! lol
Need I say more than MsPerception? lol. awesome seety, keep up the great work.
Hi Diva : ) I hear you on that count girl, oh my DH has been asking me for a long time!
Take care everyone, it is so nice to have each other here.. I look forwar to seeing you all tomorrow.
mothermavis - WTG it so awesome breaking into new decades!
FSA - Hey Lady! OMG I will take your dark meat...I love it!
Butterfly - Thanks Honey. Oh how I long for chinese food. Maybe this weekend I dunno
Fenderella - GJ with your calories. Oh and I agree with ms perception you did have exercise with those boys.
Jacqui - THanks
Well I am having What - A - Bruger for Lunch today. But I am sharing with a co-worker. Emmm I can taste. I am have planned for this and I am working out today so this a no stresser. I took Msperception's advice and planned for it like she said and it takes away the stress.
EDIT: Oh I apparently I can't odo simple math. I have 6 pounds to lose not 4 like the previous post states. LOL

Ah this is so awesome. I just stepped on the scale this morning and weighed 311.6lbs! That's 3.4lbs all together this week! Man, this feels amazing, I went months with the scale saying only 320-325 and never budging.
Oh and I've decided I'm going to learn a new recipe every day, no matter how small it is, so tonight I'm planning twice baked potatoes. I found a recipe on DIY Diet that's only 190 calories per serving. So my dinner will only be 380 calories. ^^
So how's everyone else doing?
Ms. Perception - I guess so! I was actually thinking that yesterday, if chasing kids around all day counts as exercise. Lol. It must if I lost more weight.
Cakebatter - WTG! That's awesome! We've lost the same amount now (unless you've lost more)
mothermavis - Awesome! I hope the scales continue to treat you well!
Well ladies I rested yesterday and took my tylenol and by evening was feeling much better. So I did L1 D10 of 30ds and didn't feel like I got a good enough workout so I walked/jogged to my moms house about 1 1/2 miles away...and I did it in 22 minutes! Whoot. I was tired this morning though and I have this pinch in my back right between my shoulder blades, I still did 30ds - L2 D1 - I just had to half *** it.
Good morning Ladies! You all just motivate me so much! I am just amazed! Fenderella, congrats on your 3.4 lbs off! Wow! That's incredible! Mothermavis, the 140s! Yay! That has to feel wonderful!! Good for you! Wannabeskinnyagain, I'm so glad you feel good about getting your exercise in! Please don't overdue it though. That pinch in your back could mean your spine is out of alignment, which was probably the cause of the kink in your neck yesterday morning. You might want to see a chiropractor if it doesn't get any better. Tylenol will mask the problem, so be careful!
And I have good news too! I have lost 1 lb! Yay! I am 205 lbs now, just 5lbs away from my first mini-goal! I just love it when that number on the scale moves down!
