Yay The feathers are becoming active!!! Let's keep it up!

I had a DownDay yesterday and gained 2.2 pounds. Figure that out... I was drinking a TON of water and none was coming back out So I must be hanging onto the water. I also had beans for dinner, maybe the sodium... I ended up at 600 calories for the day, which was fantastic.

Today is UpDay, 1300 calories planned.

I will have a slow exercise day; I will only do an aerobic class today. I went to the gym last night and really did not "feel it". I walked on treadmill for 60 minutes, but not even at the pace that I usually do. I just felt tired.

I did my first day of volunteering at the hospital and it went well. I will shadow another week and then I am on my own. Since I am the information girl, it will be interesting how badly I will guide people I need to learn the hospital layout.

My life is becoming "full". I am so glad that I can do all this volunteering I do.

Welcome to our little corner of the board, BeachBreeze2010 and banananutmuffin. It's always nice to see new faces, hope you'll stick around!

Sum and shr1nk1ngme, I give you guys a lot of props for trying IF. I'm not sure that's a strategy I could handle. Will be very interested to watch your progress with it so keep us updated! And good luck with your new volunteering gig, Sum. You're a good soul to donate your time for others.

Hoopty, I hope to see more of Germany someday. Very cool country you live in! Congrats on the continued weight loss this week and I hope your knee is behaving itself. My left knee was giving me a little trouble last weekend too. Sometimes rest is the best thing. I mostly walk and jog. Sometimes a little upper body exercise, but I haven't been successful at getting consistent with that yet. What's your favorite workout?

It's been a busy week and I'm looking forward to posting more again. The eating bit is still going well, but exercise has been spotty this week. My knee was pretty sore after I twisted it climbing stairs last weekend so I rested it for a couple days, then as soon as it felt better I woke up with a bad crick in my neck and had to continue resting for several more days. Neck feels much better now so I'm back at it tonight!

Just went though my summer clothes. Amazing; All my clothes fit me...size 6 to 10. The tens are definitely on a looser side and sixes are on a snugger side, but I can wear them all. -- I was secretly hoping that all my 10's would be falling off of me No such luck. Hah! So I guess I won't be needing to buy new shorts, drats . The size 10 skirts and a few pairs of capri pants were too big though, and they are going to be donated.

I have been buying 4's and I can zip them up but they don't look good. I refuse to wear anything too small and have a muffin top. Maybe another 10 pounds and they too will start fitting; at that point I hope that those pesky 10's will be way too large.

I also found some shorts that have never been worn; I bought them a few years back and they were way too snug, but this summer they are fitting.

I would like to get a few casual summer dresses though. I have a lot of "formal" summer clothing, but the cottony dresses I have are starting to look old and used. -- I lived in them when I was heavy. I like how dresses hide all imperfections. Old Navy usually has some cute ones and I bought some from Express as well.

I also (finally) fit into my skinny jeans and they looked GOOD! I thought I could not do skinny jeans, but I guess I can . I will wear them tonight when DH gets home. He travels during the week So I will get dolled up

Weather is finally warming up! We are supposed to have a gorgeous weekend ahead...high 70's and low 80's... if there is no humidity, it will be perfect.

I walked my pup for 5 miles this morning and I am about to hit the gym for some weights, swim and treadmill. Thursdays are my hard core days. I pull 1-2 grueling workout days per week. It keeps my metabolism guessing.

Everyone, have a beautiful and productive day

Glad to see that the Feathers community is becoming active, yay!

As for me, I've been way off track for a few days. I've had 4 days where I binged, ended the days at 4000+ calories each. I did the math and tried to see how much I actually burned during those days and long story short, I must've gained about 1.5 lbs of fat. So, today is not gonna be a 100% healthy day but my main focus is to keep the calories low. I should also consider doing a detox or something..I'm sure I put my body in shock with the amount of sugar and fats I had. I'll think about doing that tomorrow.

I did 4:3 plan this week, and it was HARD. I won't be doing it again! 3 fast days are too much, considering I exercise a lot. -- BUT, I did lose 5.2 pounds in one week -- I was carrying a lot of bloat! So back to my 5:2 plan.

Yesterday, my 3rd fast day, I was starving. I was determined to carry out my plan though,and I did. The stubborn Finn I am -- So today I am happily eating breakfast, which I usually loathe

I am at a new low; 135.8. We'll see if it sticks though because it was after a fast day. Regardless, it made me really happy. I am 13 pounds away from goal, it feels surreal to be that close; I have lost 37 pounds so far.

I have done my weight loss slowly. I have tried all diet plans...hah...I guess they all work!

Off to my morning walk with my pup.

TaTa for now!

I'm convinced I'm stuck. I don't have the time or energy to work out properly, I'm always tired and sore as it is, but I'll try to add some push-ups and sit-ups into my day. I thought I was eating so healthy compared to before, I feel frustrated.

lovedancelive Sorry that feel like you are stuck.

How many calories do you eat per day? Do you track them (for example using myfitnesspal)?

I seem to get stuck at decades, it seems....

Hang in there

No, I've been eyeballing it but I'll start counting more precisely tomorrow.

Yes, when in doubt, it is good to measure, sometimes eyeballing can be deceiving lovedancelive

Well my new love did not stick, nor did I expect it to. Weight is always lower after DownDays and creep a bit back up after UpDays.

Today is a SPLURGE DAY!! Going out for sushi . We'll see how these splurge days will work out, I am sure I will bounce up a pound or two.

Back at it! I wanna make it back to 140.0 lbs and continue from there. I avoided pasta/potatoes/brown rice today and stuck with veggies, fruit and protein. My stomach is feeling much better! It's PMS week for me, starting today, so I have to make sure I pay attention to possible cravings.

Sum38 - Hope you had a fun splurge day today! Love me some sushi!

Woot! Hoopty, awesome job avoiding the carbs!

Well I had a very nice splurge day , could not get OP after it though. Sunday was supposed to be my fast day, and it did not happen. I will try to fast today, and push my Wednesday's fast to Thursday...depending how I feel though. Sunday's and Wednesdays fit into my schedule well, what comes to fasting. Thursdays I work out do hard that fasting becomes tough.

The back of the knee is still sore, I think I may need to rest it 2-4 weeks; no aerobics since that class really seem to aggravate my knee. Walking seems to be okay, so I will continue my walks.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day everybody!

I have realized that my fiance is a slightly bad influence on me. So far, he's gotten me to eat Taco Bell and drink a Gloria Jean chilled coffee. But when I went shopping for a dress and skirts, I realized how horrible I look with my gut hanging there like it does and nearly left empty-handed. I think that's the last time I'll be joining him out for junk food... I am so disappointed to have gained back 10 pounds. I think I'm finally in the right frame of mind to get strict with myself.

Sorry about your fiancee's temptations, lovedancelive! Stay strong and those pounds will melt off.

Another Holiday weekend behind us, we had glorious weather. We did a lot of yard work; planted the rest of the garden items and flowers. Now we will sit back and wait for the harvest

I really upped my water intake this weekend. My wonderful hubby installed us a new water filtering system, a serious one. We have well water and I hated the taste of it. -- Men like to "fix" things, so he fixed the situation by getting this new system in. I just love him! -- So now the water tastes like fresh spring water and I am back to drinking 70-100 ox per day. -- At first it showed up movement on my scale; I think my body just went "huh", what's this stuff you are giving me... I think I have been walking about slightly dehydrated for ages now.

Scale moved down a bit over night, hoping that the trend continues and I get to see my low again, soon. I am hoping that all this water will help too.

DH had to leave earlier than normal for work, so I am up earlier than normal. It is only 6:30 and I am thinking about taking a walk Wonder if the park would be open yet

I need to walk the pup early, though, it is my hospital volunteer day.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday weekend!
