Talking Planning & Chat for Jan. 12- Jan. 18

Two weeks into the new year and how's everyone doing? Are the new year's resolutions being kept? New diet and exercise progrrams showing results?

Let's have a great week everyone!

Thumbs down My weight's up

I'm not surprised that my weight's up. I had a number of binges last week and haven't been monitoring things closely enough. Post holiday let down, new year/same old etc. left me kinda depressed and I ate to console myself.

Now I have bitter weather to contend with and am still dogsitting until Wed. I'll get seriously back on track this coming weekend but I'm going to try to maintain or at least lose the binge bloat during the week.

Have a great week all!

No binges here, but I'm only down 1 pound since last Monday. I'm not complaining, but had I made better choices (read: less wine) I would be down 3 or 4 pounds. Goal this week? No wine until Friday. DS is going out of town for a couple days with his robotics class so DH and I are going out Friday night to a karaoke bar/restaurant with my in-laws. I don't particularly like karaoke, but they hang out there weekly and invited us along. Saturday we'll go golfing.

I'm haven't finished making my resolutions

Going OK, who knows on the weight front, as I'm pre-TOM. But I'm enjoying some unseasonably warm January weather

Hi, everyone.
I had a really good week last week, so it's encouraging me to stick with it. I'm down another half pound (I'm a space and like to get on the scale every day. It keeps me honest with myself) to make a full loss of 4.5 so far. I did at least a half hour on the treadmill every day last walk. mainly walking, but i steadily built the spead up. I tried adding a little jogging in, but I'm still pretty out of shape, so I'll have to stick with it. No visible effects from the the exercise yet, but I feel like I have so much more energy. I hope that'll keep me motivated when it gets tougher.

Oooooh eeee am I sore today.

Allison you can do it (re the red wine). Yesterday was my first day without and already I am down a pound. I am pretty sure it keeps me dehydrated. I am not ready to quit all out but I am taking a break til weight has become more comfotable (along with clothes) and then I think I will stick to 1 or 2 days a week instead of the glass (or 2) a night.

Gotta love the fact that New Years is a full 6 months from June. Lets go bathing suits!

I'm doing good on the resolution to cut restaurant budget by 40%, unfortunately dh isnt.

I'm having a tough day. My brand new treadmill which took a lot of grunting and groaning to get in to the house and set up doesnt work, my toilet is clogged beyond my plunging and snaking prowess (and I am GOOD at plunging, I think if dh had let me have a whack at it instead of being manly, we'd be ok, but now my technique wont work.)

I gotta get cracking on getting organized for the week!

Weight? I'm just not going to think about it!

Hi there I too have set the 20 lb goal! So far I lost 7 and I am trying to lose the other 13 by March 5th. Trying for at least 2 lbs a week.

I am not a water drinker. I never was never have been. Its hard for me to drink it because well I dont like it haha. Basically I lived on coke and coffee forever. I slowly am trying to get in the habit of drinking more water though. I still drink coffee but I have cut out soda. I substitute it with sparking water now. I think about everyday if I could have just laid off all that soda how many lbs lighter I probably would be. *sigh*

some days you just need something sweet to drink. I like the water at home, but when I'm up at school, it just tastes off (yay for jersey water). I drink a lot of diet soda at school, which i'm trying to cut way back on. What I found is a really nice substitute is green tea with just a bit of honey. it has some calories, but it really seems to hit the spot for me.

LOL @ Jersey Water!

I drink alot of Sparkingwater from shop and stop or Walmart.I love the black cherry or cranberry flavors. I mean I know splenda isnt good for you, but I would rather drink something with 0 cals then a liter of coke

At least he didn't ROLL around the house. I'm sorry, but I keep cracking up as I picture it - a sticky little boy gleefully running around the house
