Ah, Lene...I just saw your post after I posted. Glad you're back. It sounds like you had a fabulous day with the family. I love hiking, and I haven't been berry picking since I was a young girl in England. No worries about the scales...just stay OP and those pounds will start flying off in a few days!

Tuscany: I learned to let myself go sometimes and realize I am not really Superwoman and I can't do it all! I try it sometimes and thats when I get in trouble with my weight loss and eating plan. I took the end of July to refocus myself try to let go of the stress I was creating for myself. I also had to figure out why I was constantly fatigued 24/7. I have that pretty much straightened out so I'm feeling much better for August!

53+ inches lost
=5 pounds lost

Good morning! It looks like overall people had a great weekend, art fairs, good interviews, hikes and berry picking (yum!)

Over the weekend I stayed OP, walked and swam on sat and hit the gym yesterday. But of course the silly scale wants to be stubborn and go the wrong way AGAIN *wags finger at scale* Meh! only thing it can be is water weight, my arms, shoulders and back are all sore from yesterdays weight training so today I will drink lots of water and hopefully be back to 250 or lower tomorrow!

8/1: 251.4
8/2: 250.6
8/3: 250.2
8/4: 251.4
8/5: 251.6

This morning I felt really bloated for whatever reason, so I was expecting the scale to read a not-so-nice number. But I had a pleasant surprise! Down 0.6 pounds I can't wait to see the 150s...it feels like so long since I've been there!

Tuscany, we must have been posting at the same time.

Obviously, I didn't proof read my last post. (We went hiking yesterday) I reply to posts via my iPhone which can be a little difficult. If you see misspellings and crazy wording please forgive me. I'm just too lazy to get on the desk top computer.

Tuscany I'm a Fine Arts major, so mostly drawing and painting with a few other visual arts mediums thrown in. This is my last year and then I plan to transfer out and get a degree in Psychology. After that then it's off to grad school for my end goal of a degree and licensure in Art Therapy.

Good job wolfgirl, junebug, and Ggirl!

Lene, what a fun weekend your described! And I know what you mean about weigh-ins during TOM. Mother Nature just decided to join me on my vacation. Not fun!

Tuscany! My word, chickie! You've lost almost 3 lbs in 5 days! Good for you!

Turtle, yay on the loss! Just don't go too wild at the "thing" and you'll be okay.

Pixiekat, good job staying OP!

Tray, not too bad, just get back OP and you'll be fine. If the weekends are getting you, just try to plan them out a little better, and/or reward yourself with a little something if you stay OP. You got this!

TOM caught up with me, dang it, but I'm still having lots of fun and staying OP!

8/1: 202
8.2: 202
8/3: 201
8/4: 201
8/5: 201

Thanks Jacqui, definitely should plan. With work during the week it's so easy to plan out eating what I brought in and just not leaving the office to get the horrible foods that I wind up getting over the weekend. The month is young though, and daily weigh ins definitely shed light on my habits more.

Up a little but I'm not worried so much now that I've seen it go down this month. Fluctuations happen.

SW: 79.6kgs
CW: 79.3
GW: 78

Turtle11: Yay for moving down!

wolfgirl69: good for you for realizing it's going to take some time to process all that drama.

Jacqui_D: way to go with being on plan on vacaton!

Tuscany: DH set our scale in kgs years ago for some project he was doing. I left it there because I discovered I have less of an emotional attachment to the numbers in kgs, making it easier to think of the scale number as simply data.

I GOT THE JOB!!! I will be personalizing ornaments at a Christmas store. Listening to Christmas day in and day out will get old fast but at least I finally have a job! It's a seasonal job so it will end at Christmas but I can probably transfer this skill to another store or something that does personalizations.

Pixi I don't know yet for grad school but I'm in the application process for Trinity Lutheran College out in Washington.

CONGRATS Leah on the job! I have two interviews this week, one tomorrow on campus and one yet to be scheduled past "sometime this week" at a hotel near me. Hopefully I get as lucky as you cause I am SOOOO BORED home all day!

Washington is supposed to be really pretty! I've always wanted to visit, I have a friend in Sea/Tac that I want to try to go see. I'll cross my fingers on the application for you
