Hello Bonnie. I hope you're having success getting back on the wagon. It is so hard but we can do it!!!

I missed posting yesterday and Saturday but I am hanging in there. The scale seems to be stuck though. I had a huge 11 pound drop during the first week so I guess my body is still adjusting. I decided to go back to tracking WW Points as I will be joining the WW At Work program again on 2/5.

I am working on Day 25 now.

B: coffee, banana, clementine
L: Healthy Choice Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo (7pts), Pk Special K 100 Cal Blonde Brownie Bites (3pts)
D: Salmon (4pts), squash, hot chocolate (3pts)
S: Pear, baked Cheetos (4pts)
Exercise: Walk the track

Inspiring! Just wanted to say what a great job you are doing. I am another one that just can't seem to stay on the wagon no matter what I do, and its all my fault, no one else. I want to say what a great job your doing, congratulate you and how in touch you are with what you need, what works. Stay at it, you deserve so many good things.

Thank you mainecyn. I fought to get back on the wagon since last March and in December, something finally clicked inside my head. I was so upset that another year was ending and I hadn't been successful with my weight loss. I am determined that at the end of this year, I will be much smaller.

I hope that you are able to stay on the wagon. Just challenge yourself one day at a time. You can do it!

Keep going! At the end of this year, you are going to look and feel GREAT! Don't let that little bit of a stall on the scales bother you. It's perfectly natural, and it will pass once your body adjusts to a new leaner you! You're doing a fantastic job!

Good morning and Thank you Jacqui for those encouraging words. I do plan to stay on the wagon this time as it's also for my health. If I don't lose weight and eat right, I will have to take another med and I don't want to do that. After my first huge loss, it slowed down but I didn't get discouraged and now the scale is starting to move downward again. I realized that I wasn't drinking enough water so I have upped my water and I am also doing a little more activity.

I hope you all are having a great day!

Day 32

B: 1 Cup Quaker Instant Oatmeal, 1/2 C skim milk, Coffee w/1/2 C Skim milk
L: Healthy Choce Cafe Steamer, SF Jello cup
S: banana, apple, energy trail mix, 7 unsalted saltines
D: Shrimp & veggie stir fry, 1/2 C hot choc
Exercise: Walked 30 mins

GettinFit, mind if I join you? You've been an inspiration for reaching 34 days of control, and I need that to rub off on me, too.

Seriously, congrats on all of your hard work!

Hi Tyla It's nice to see your post. Yes just jump right in. I can't believe it's been 35 days for me now. If you take it one day at a time, before you know it, you'll be in your groove. Let's make this our best year I'll look forward to reading about your success.

Still no change in the scale for me but I'm not going to let it get me down. I am going to drink more water today and omit the trail mix and see if that makes a difference. I do have NSVs that are keeping me motivated. They are:
I'm feeling great physically
I'm sleeping better
My body is shrinking
Clothes are fitting better
I feel so in control and that is so empowering
Day 35

B: McDonald's fruit & maple oatmeal, coffee w/creamer
L: Lean Cuisine, SF Jello pudding
D: Wendy's grilled ckn sandwich, small Frostyy
S: 100 cal pk of almonds/walnuts
Exercise: Walk 30 mins
