Here in the mid west it is allergy season...and man, am I feeling it. Have not had a good night's sleep in weeks due to either hubby or myself snorting and snotting. Hoping it doesn't turn into a sinus infection like it usually does. Sitting here eating my banana and oatmeal and reading everyone's posts. Sounds like the whoosh fairy needs a good kick in the pants...she's not doing her job. Hope she's not in contract negotiations or something. Hang in there everybody!!!

Hey guys, I'm back! It has been a crazy semester but I need to make myself get back on track so I'm gonna make an effort to try to come on here daily.

I am setting myself a tentative goal of 5lbs but may alter that. Yesterday was my first day back on track so hopefully I'll see some water weight dropping off these first few days. Once that has happened I will re-evaluate.

11/5 - 254.2
GW - 249.2(?)

Okay, I've managed to stay away from Ice Cream and all other possible sources of candy. I also managed not to overeat. I went to Cardio Boxing last night and went to bed when I got home. I didn't eat after class because:

A. It was after 10pm by the time I got home and showered.
B. I would use working out as justification for eating a lot.


Starting Weight 161 lbs
Goal Weight: 154 lbs
Target Weight Loss: 7 lbs

11/3: 161 lbs
11/4: Didn't Weigh
11/5: 159.3 lbs (-1.7)


Today's Goals:

1. Drink at least 64 oz of water.
2. Don't overeat at meal times.
3. Eat before dance class tonight, not after.

Soon2beskinny - that's a killer schedule getting up at 4am. How on earth do you manage it? #impressive!

Woodstock - hurrah goodbye 149

Tuscany - these are definately tough pounds to shift. I keep dropping at the end of the week, then putting on over the weekend. Same old same old.., sigh!

Rsadler, that downward trend is looking good!

Hi KellyK! No longer being obese is a big deal! It will be exciting for you to get there!

Minneey, you can do this! I'm glad the photos are helping you to see the change in yourself. That change is so worth it! Keep it up!

NLauah, I like the way you have your cumulative stats set up each week. What a good way to chart your overall progress!

Soon2be, I think I keep getting hit with the sodium fairy too. Either that, or the hormone pixie!

Tuscany, I think I live vicariously through your continual weight loss! It never fails to bring a smile to my face.

Hi Darius! Good luck in reaching your goal!

SuperHeroTeacher, good to see you back!!! You are going to do it this month! :

BFR, Wow, you are an inventor! That's awesome! Now, you are going to have to keep your scale in one place, lol!

183, oh wow, I somehow missed that you were having your wisdom teeth removed! I'm so glad it went well! Take it easy now!

Twish, looks like you have that crazy up and down thing going on too. C'mon whoosh fairy! We need you in this thread!

Wannaskip, sodium got you too, huh?

Woodstock, yay! Glad to see your scale is on its way down!

Boatingmommy, great job! I hope your DH and you feel better soon!

Turtle, loving that low! Keep going!

Joy, good job on that maintenance!

Pixikat is back!!! Yay! Good luck on the 5 lbs! You can do it!

Learning_2_Live, good job! And look at that drop!

Jbhigdon, glad you're feeling better!

Kelijpa, congrats on the big drop!

I went back to 139 yesterday and stayed there this morning. On the plus side, at least I’m still below 140.

SW: 140.0
GW: 135.0

11/1: DNW
11/2: 139.50
11/3: 139.00
11/4: 138.75
11/5: 139.00
11/6: 139.00

Turtle: Woohoo…back to 155…keep going!

Pixi: Welcome back! Good luck with your November goal!

Jacqui: Reverse gears…

Joy: I hope you see some downward movement in the near future.

183StGB: Glad to hear all went well with your wisdom teeth. I’m such a baby when it comes to dentists!

Sue: Salt will get you every time!

boatingmommy: Yes…I’m beginning to think the whoosh fairy has gone on strike…either that or she suffers from allergies!

Woodstock: C’mon 147!

Learning 2 Live: Nice way to start off the month!

Jbhigdon: I hope the whoosh fairy visits you soon!

Minneey: They definitely are tough pounds to shift. I keep losing and regaining the same pounds, although there’s neither rhyme nor reason to the trends, since I eat about the same number of calories every day. I shall just keep plodding on and hope something breaks soon!

kalija: You got a slightly late birthday present!

twish: I hope the whoosh fairy pays you a visit soon…hang in there!

BFR: Good luck in getting to that smaller wardrobe!

darius & SuperHeroTeacher: Good luck with your November goals!

Here's how I plan to do it.
Exercise: 500 minutes of exercise each week. Goal 2000 minutes end of month. Mix of Running, Walking, Piloxing for my cardio once a week and strength training 3 times a week Start small with 1 set of 12 exercises. Build up to 3 sets. Try and get some yoga in each day. Bought a dvd with Am pm with short and long versions. Would like to start towards the end of the month in a Tai Yoga class.
Eating: write it all down. Try to keep calories at goal of 1680. Allow for 1 slip a week.
Water: 100 oz.

Funny I guess that spells EEW which is kinda how I feel about my failed October.
Fees good to see positive results. 200.6 this am. That's 4lbs in less than a week. Woot.
