Leah but it is always good to have an explination. That may explain your tiredness the other day too! I'll cross my fingers you don't bounce up too much and have a nice woosh down at the end

Bg crack it open and give it a try, worst that can happen is it'll taste funky and you throw it away! I'm not sure it really goes bad very easily though. I've carried little bottles around, left them in my car for day at a time in 100 degree heat etc. They start smelling stronger (sour-er i guess) but always tasted fine and never made me sick. (I think it just dehydrated the juice some so it was thicker)

Bleumaus you are flushing off that water fast, 2 lbs since yesterday! just keep it up, maybe you won't see it tomorrow but maybe the 16th! thats not too bad! Or maybe you will see it tomorrow if you flush another 2 lbs of water off again.

we are gaming with a whole new group, so I'm hoping if I set precedence now of our healthy habits we won't get too many strange looks later.

So it looks like I'm jumping on the TOM wagon too. It makes makes this weight loss thing seem much more unpredictable. Feeling emotional too!!!

My scale sure does like me at 175.6. Super sore today from doing a barre class tuesday and then bootcamp this morning. I'm sure my muscles are hanging onto some water after the torture I put them through.

Way to go, Bleu!! When you earlier said you wanted to be 175 by the 15th, I was going to say "Who but you (and us!) would know? The only thing that matters is how you look." And, if you're already in a size 10, then it sounds to me like you're looking pretty good! All your hard work is starting to pay off! Congratulations!

I said goodbye to another half pound this morning and I'm now back to where I was on Monday, which is the lowest weight I've been so far in this century!

GW: 149.00

Turtle: You'll be back to losing once TOM is over. Keep smiling!

Jacqui: Oooo…I'm hoping to see a number beginning with ONE in your post today!

Cincorn: Yeah for your 4 lb loss in August! That's great progress! It's very easy to get frustrated when we stay OP and the scales don't cooperate. It happens to all of us, so not to worry.

Joy: I'm keeping my fingers crossed for "78.x" today!

Pixi: Hope your D&D night went well and that you're still in the 240's.

Bleu: You'll see 175 soon enough…for now enjoy your size 10's.

bg124: Hope you're doing well!

Tray: Barre AND bootcamp...Ouch...that certainly sounds like torture to me! I'm sure your water weight comment is bang on.

Leah: At least you now have a reason for the slight gain...I hope you feel better soon.

I'm definately not liking these upper 160s. I used to have a set point around 167/168 where I was naturally for around 3 years. I hope I can sneak by them with a whoosh later this week . Everyone seems to be doing so great!

Guess who just entered ONEDERLAND?! Meeeeeeeee! Thank you all for your encouragement in my getting here!

Leah, I'm sorry TOM came unexpectedly, but glad you found the reason you've been feeling sick. Hope you feel better soon!

Pixikat, great idea. I hope you're able to influence the new group to eat healthier snacks, but no matter what they do, you keep bringing healthier snacks. You're doing a great job staying OP!

Turtle, my emotions always hit me during TOM too. Hang in there!

Joy, I do believe you are going to make it to goal!

Tray, yep it's water. Keep going!

Bleu, size 10!! How exciting!!! Good for you!!

Tuscany, yay! Great job! And now to go lower! (For me too!)

Turtle, my set point used to be 197, so it will be interesting to see if I can get to my August goal of 196. I'll get there, but I know last time I tried, I was stuck at 197 for a while. You WILL break that barrier. Just keep going!

Hi kids! I've been reading but haven't had time to post. My scale is being stubborn but I've been working hard and I'm not letting it get me down I love running but it doesn't seem to reflect on the scale very well sometimes.

You guys are kicking butt and I'm so excited for you!

Congrats BG, on making your Aug goal!!!! Great job!

Turtle, I'm sure you'll see a whoosh after TOM leaves!

Jacqui, Congrats on making it to Onederland! You're doing great!

Tuscany, "lowest you've been in this century"... absolutely amazing!!!

Congrats Bleu on getting into those size 10's again!! I have a closet with size 8's, 10's, 12's, and recently bought 14's. I'm loving working my "weigh" back down through my closet. Great job!!

Tray, I'm very sure it's just water. No worries!!

Joy, congrats on seeing 78-wahoo!!!

Sorry to those I missed! Have a great day!!
