Sept2013 - I'm sorry about your gain and I hope it's just water weight. Hang in there and hopefully you will lose that weight soon. I have been stuck inside since I got home on Tuesday afternoon and I am so ready to get out. Hopefully, I'll be back at work tomorrow.

All your goals/rewards are great ones.

Sept2012, I'm so sorry about your ordeal yesterday. About the weight gain, you just have to take it one step at a time, and the weight will come off again. That's what I'm doing. I'm still a little shaky some days, but all I can do is take it one day at time. And pray for God's help to get me through. But today is a new day! And today I feel determined.

GettinFit, Day 41!!! I admire your strength. Keep up the great work!!!

Day 7. Today's meals: B: bread, eggbeaters, banana, yogurt
L: salad, tuna, low-cal dressing, almonds
D: oatmeal, raisins, almonds

Let's keep going>>>>>

Just wanted to say that I had a great day today. I changed my regular routine by changing the times I do things, kept busy, prayed for guidance, listened to joyful music and was super determined to have a great day. I even bought a skinny latte for a treat, and counted it in my cals today. (And that latte gave me extra energy, too.)

I was worried that because I said I was a little shaky lately that I was changing the juju here. Not too worry. I'm strong and I know you are strong, too, GettinFit! Let's continue to make ourselves healthy.

Hi Sept. 2012, GettinFit & tyla,
May I join you? I'm new to this site and I am not sure exactly where I fit in. I have been on a wgt loss journey now for a year and a half. I recently had foot surgery and it put a stall and bump in my progress. I am determined to get back to calorie counting and hopefully in the next few weeks some exercise. ( my foot is still recovering) I am so inspired by all three of you. Thank you for sharing your stories for others motivation!!

Hello ladies and Happy Friday

Nursemom, just jump right in. I hear you on the stall. I quickly dropped the first 12 pounds in Dec and it's taken me the entire month of Jan to lose 2 more pounds. I'm hoping that things will move a little faster in Feb.

Sept 2012 - I hope things are back to normal for you. Today I am back at work.

Tyla - You are doing a great job too! You'll be on day 41 before you know it.

Day 42 for me and all is good.

B: Coffee - I missed b'fast as I got distracted when I got to work
L: Lean Cuisine, Salad w/FF raspberry vinaigrette dressing, WW mini bar
D: wasn't hungry so I had 10 unsalted saltines
S: 1 glass wine, 1/2 cup mixed nuts, popcorn
Exercise: Walked 30 mins

Next week I will work harder to limit my carbs

HI Ladies,

Not back to normal hahaah but not letting it get me down Still 288.8.

GettinFIT - Finally everything seems to be back to normal here - even the crazies are being crazy on the freeways hahaah. You’re doing a great job posting here every day. Keep up the good work.

Nursemom – I started my weightloss when I was 13hahahaha just kidding. I started in July of 2012. I lost 30 LBS and then I lost my dad in May of the next year. I was devastated and did nothing for 8 months after. Now I am back and feeling better than ever. At least you came back and you have goals that is what is really important. Now comes the hard work and we are all here for you and doing the same work. One second, one minute, one day at a time.

Tyla – Yesterday was kinda stressful for me so I bought a heresy’s bar and ate the whole thing. My mind is like oh your stressed and you have your tom and you gained three pounds overnight and oh you stopped smoking… go eat some chocolate. So I did and guess what I put it in my tracker and ate less for dinner and was still pretty much on plan except for my fat intake that was kinda over the top (thinking of your skinny latte). Anyway my ramble here is… no matter what you eat track it and you sound like you already got that.

Here is my food so far for the day:

Breakfast: Coffee, Half and half, 2 scrambled eggs
Snack: Dannon light and fit Greek yogurt
Lunch : Salad, cheese and pepperoni pizza (I ate the top only) I am on no wheat, no gluten and no sugar so to me this in op
Snack: String cheese and almonds
Dinner: will be vodka, soda water, lime; GF chicken tacos at cheesecake factory these are perfect they wrap all of these veggies and chicken in sturdy lettuce and give you some really good salsa and guac. Its my fav meal. Low carb. Low calorie and YUMMY!

Have a great day,

Joy

Sept2012, glad to see you back! You're doing great with your food today. I'm going to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner, too. I'm having 1/2 a chicken salad sandwich with a small green salad. That's my favorite place to eat and that's my favorite sandwich. It's all in my calorie range, too.

If you can, stay off that scale. It was bringing me down and making me want to give up. Not getting on it for a while.

Have a great weekend!!! TGIF!

Hello ladies, I hope you are all having a great Saturday.

Tyla - I hope you enjoyed your dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Great job on the planning ahead.

Sept2012 - I am so happy that its finally in the 50s here. I have been out & about all day enjoying the weather.

Nursemom I hope you are doing good.

Day 43

Since I started my journey, I have only been buying snacks in 100 calorie single serving size packs. Today for the first time I bought a large pk of Chex Mix. I wanted to open the bag on the way home and dig in but I didnt. I am going to divide out the servings and put in zip lock bags. This will be a huge challenge for me but I am determined to stay in control. I am a huge junk food binger.

Have a great day ladies .

B: McDonalds fruit & maple oatmeal, coffee
L: Wendy's grilled ckn sandwich, small frosty
S. 1 serv Chex mix, 1 clementine
D: salad w/ reg vinaigrette dressing, 1 oven fried fish fillet, 2 glasses of wine
Exercise: walked 30 mins

GettinFit you are doing great, good to see you, keep up the great work my friend Great NSV's my friend Good for you on staying OP while being snowed in that's a great feeling I know since the weekends were what killed my progress most of the time along with evening snacking. Good for you on the chex mix

Kim back, good to see you

BonnieL good to see you

mainecyn good to see you

tyla, good to see you and good for you on the re-start, you've got this I love Cheesecake Factory, their salmon and crab cakes are delicious

Joy, sorry about the up, but it has got to be water weight, with TOM. I am sorry for your loss I'd count the hershey bar as an NSV because it curbed your appetite the remainder of the day if I read correctly, good job

Hi nursemom,

It's great to see familiar faces. I am on a few threads, not sure if you all remember me or not but I remember everybody drives my husband nuts . I'm on a thread with Jacqui, for slow carbing which worked wonders for me in January that, my faith and Jacqui. I see you all pray for guidance also. I start my day asking for wisdom and guidance to make it through the day and on this journey and I know He won't fail. My ultimate goal is to get off the diabetic meds. ... just wanted to say Hello and GREAT JOB to you all. Take Care Rennie

Hi Rennie thanks for those encouraging words. You are doing an awesome job with your weight loss. I hope you are soon able to get your blood sugar under control. I am on a mission to get my B/P down so that my dr can take me off meds.

Keep up the good work

Thanks GettinFit, like you said it's one day at a time. I am having a problem getting all of my calories in. Sometimes they are ridiculously low on really low carb days but I'm not hungry. I was reading a new post and the worry with that appears to be slowing down my metabolism and losing muscle since I'm not doing any strength training just cardio. I guess I'll figure it out one day We'll both get off the meds, prayerfully this year
