Good Morning. I'm very happy to report that I said goodbye to another 0.75 lbs this morning!

Aug 1: 157.25
Aug 2: 156.75 (-0.5)
Aug 3: 156.00 (-0.75)

GW: 149.00

Lene: It's great when others start to notice your success, and you can start to enjoy the results of all your hard work. Congrats!

Turtle: My crystal ball tells me you will see a "16" on the scales in the very near future! I might also think about a Zumba class in the fall, but like you I find these classes a little intimidating. We shall see.

GardenerJoy: I'm sorry about yet another UP...but I'm sure it's just water. With your newly-formed good habits, you'll soon see a reversal.

BleuMaus: Congrats on getting into the 170's. We all love to enter a new decade! FWIW, whenever I go on day trips, I either pack a low-cal picnic lunch or, if picnicking isn't possible, I take a bunch of snacks (apples, other fruit, protein bars, etc.) and eat something light every few hours. Have fun today!

Pixi: Nice loss...you too will soon be in the next decade!

Jacqui: Enjoy VA Beach and try to behave at least a little bit.

LovelyLeah: Way to toss a full pound to the curb!

TrayTeam: Great loss...almost a full pound for you too.

Kirsten: Welcome and good luck with your goal!

bg124: 2 lbs in 2 days...woohoo! At that rate, you will also enter a new decade soon.

Good morning ladies! Looks like everyone is doing great! That white pizza sounds delicious! I know that someone posted about a cauliflower pizza crust in the recipes section that is low carb, seems like it would go great with a white pizza, maybe with a little grilled chicken on top... yum!

Anyways, the scale is being nice and gave me another -.4 this morning, hopefully it'll continue!

sw:251.4
cw:250.2 (-1.2)
gw:246.1

WTG Pixi! I never realized there was a recipe section. Thank you for sharing that. I saw tons of things I would like to try if I can fit them in my calorie budget.

Turtle - Great going on the maintaining! Much better than gaining.

I've been on vacation and just weighed today for August, so I'll use that as my start date. My goal for August is to lose 7 lbs.

Aug. 3 - 216.6
Aug. 4 - 216 (-.6)
Aug 5 - 215.2 (-.8)
I was in the hospital with acute pancreatit is from July 18-23. I still can't eat very much, and it's really showing on the scales!
Aug 6 - 214.2 (-1.0)
Aug 7 - 213.8 (-.4)
Aug 8 - 215 (+1.2) No explanation for this other than high sodium?
Aug 9 - 215.2
Aug 10- 214.2
Aug 11- 214.4
Aug 12- 213.2
Aug 13- 213.4 I'm really struggling right now and I don't know why??? Eating around 1000-1200 cal. per day and working out at the gym and weight up a lb., down a lb., up and down....basically "stuck"!
Aug 14 - 212.6 FINALLY!
Aug 15- 212.6
Aug 16- 212.6 Again???
Aug 17 - 212.0 Total loss for month = 4.6
Aug 18 - didn't weigh
Aug 19 - 211.2 total loss = 5.4
Aug 20 did not weigh
Aug 21 211.4 (total loss = 5.2)
Aug 22 210.2 (total loss = 6.4)
Aug 23 210.2
Aug 24 did not weigh
Aug 25 208.6 total loss = 8 lbs!
Aug 26 208.6
Aug 27 208.0 Total for august 8.6 lb. loss!
Aug 28 did not weigh
Aug 29 209.0 Oh, no! I'm retaining fluid and I gained a lb!
Aug 30 210.2 WTH? my fingers and toes are like sausages and I don't know why???

Joy, your math is right for me, thanks! And congrats on your loss!

Lene, That's just a little water weight, especially since you stayed within your calorie allowance. Congrats on the losing weight comment!

Yay, bg! That is fantastic!

Congrats Tuscany! And I will try to be good starting tomorrow, lol! (Today's my cheat day. I'm allowed to be bad.)

Woohoo, Pixikat, on another drop!

Turtle, I know it's no fun to have to be patient, but you are doing a great job! Hopefully, you'll see a drop soon.

Good luck on your renewed effort, Wolfgirl! :

Hiya, to ALL joining the challenge!

So today I lost another lb! However, today was my 10-hour travel day to VA. Beach and my allowed cheat day, so I don't know if I am going to go looking for a scale tomorrow, lol! I might give it a day or two. I don't even know if this hotel has a scale in the exercise room, but I'm thinking it should. I didn't go crazy eating, but compared to what I have been eating, it sure felt like it. And the usually forbidden foods (carbs) fill me up so quickly to the point I feel stuffed to the gills! I fully expect to weigh more tomorrow, but then the diet says that's what happens and not to sweat it because in the long run, you keep losing. Worked last week, but I feel like I ate more today, so we'll see. It should be my TOM but I'm 52 and it skips every once in a while and so far it hasn't happened. I'm grateful for that being on vacation, but it does make me feel bloated. Anyway, I'm happy to have lost the lb today! That makes 10!

Who would have thought that a NSV could be so frustrating. I have a potential job interview tomorrow so I went to try on my usual interview outfit and my skirt was huge on me. A good 4 or 5 inches too large around the waist. There was a moment of "woo-hoo!" and "crap!!" I had to tear apart the house to find enough safety pins to make it both fit and look good. Luckily the way the blouse is designed it's pretty forgiving.

I didn't do too well in July. I was still out of work and put on 5lbs in the first half of the month, I got a job and ended up losing weight the second half resulting in losing 2lbs overall for the month. Here's to a better August.

Start Weight = 154lbs
Current Weight = 152lbs (11th Aug)
End Weight =

Goal Weight = 148lbs - this will move me from obese to overweight BMI

I really like the way August is shaping up. I said goodbye to another 0.75 lbs today, so I've now lost 2 lbs since Aug 1...yippee!

Aug 1: 157.25
Aug 2: 156.75 (-0.50)
Aug 3: 156.00 (-0.75)
Aug 4: 155.25 (-0.75)

GW: 149.00

Turtle: Boo, scales, boo! I'm sorry to see they're not being kinder to you. I know that no change beats a gain, but I also know how frustrating it can be when you keep seeing no change. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed so that, when you step on today, the number goes down, down, down...

Lene: Good luck with your weigh-in today too.

GardenerJoy: Yeah for the scales going in the right direction!

Pixi: Soooo close to the next decade…keep up the good work!

Jacqui: Sounds like you're having fun. Congrats on the 10 lbs…I hope it sticks while you're away.

Leah: Well, that's good news and bad news with the skirt, but at least you've managed to fix things. Good luck on the interview!

bg124: I hear you on the importance of the next decade. I too can't wait to see the 140's...I was in the 150's about 4 years ago, but I haven't seen the 140's for at least 20 years. It will be great to meet them again.

wolfgirl: At least you know what you did wrong AND the scales were kind by not showing a gain.

cincorn: Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed your vacation. I also hope you've now fully recovered from your recent hospital stay.

Sum: Nice to see you back in this challenge. I hope August is kinder to you than July was.

Welcome foreverfaye & lisa4621
