Week 3WI this morning down 2.5 more lbs! Not much in inches though - hopefully that will show up next week! Congrats to everyone just starting and all the successes I am reading about! Thank you also for sharing your struggles - we all need an ear and it helps to have it through someone who knows what we are going through. Best of luck in staying OP and powering through...you can do it!!!

Week 1: -6
Week 2: -2.5
Week 3: -2.5

It has finally warmed up in northern Indiana, the grass in turning green again and the daffodils are blooming. Right now, the thunder is rumbling and it is pouring rain. That's Indiana - if you don't like the weather, wait a few hours and it will change.
What terrific WI's today please let this continue!!!

Hello everyone,

Congratulations to everyone on their WI's, and well wishes to those facing challenges.

I won't have a weigh in this week because my coach went on vacation, but I realized I still have a NSV. Went out to garden a little this morning. I always dread cleaning out the beds in the spring because of issues with getting on and off the ground. Well, this morning, it was no problem, and didn't feel like I was making a spectacle of myself!! Yeah!!

Spiritman, your post cracked me up. I need to save that and refer to if often!
How often I have had a similar dialogue in my head. My hope is that if we keep practising, our reasoning "muscle" will become stronger, and our emotion "muscle" (those that are toxic) will atrophy. Anyway, thanks for the chuckle!

My weight loss has slowed. I've only lost 3 lb in the last 3 weeks. BUT... I bought a pair of jeans 3 weeks ago and they fit just right and looked great on my butt. 1 week later I bought a belt because I was constantly tugging them up. Today, I'm thinking it's time to give up the jeans because even with the belt cinched tight holding them up (there's a good 2 inch give in the waist), I have baggy butt!

I don't measure the inches lost, but I know it's moving! Love that feeling!

randygrl, no neg comments at all but they are very health conscious ladies...one is 125 lbs and the other is 110, very supportive and it helps when they eat healthy too when we are together.

Forgot to mention too that we stopped into a cute thrift shop that we saw and I found an adorable pair of pants...I tired them on and they were PRETTY snug, I would NEVER wear them right now. Ordinarily, I would come out with a sad face and be upset that they were so cute and I couldn't get them because they didn't fit but not the new me...I bought them and made them into goal pants....I can not wait until they fit!!!!!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. My sister is still doing quite poor from her 2nd stroke. Today they called me at work at 8:30am because she was having trouble breathing and a racing heart. I had to make some very tough decisions today, but made them with my heart. Spent the next 7 hours meeting with doctors and caring for her.

Had just made make shake when the hospital called, so I took it with me. About 1:30 realized that I should eat something, found a chic ala king pkg in my purse, when to cafetiera, bought side of veggie and made my IP pkg to go with it. So my NSV today, was that I made it through a very sad and stressful day without eating junk. The old me would have eaten chips and gummy candy.

Thanks and please say a prayer for my sister.

[quote=IPRound2;4700609]Yesterday, had some discouraging news about a surgery that I don't want to have but need - had a mini meltdown but thankfully only took it out on 2 restricted products and not the bags of left over Easter candy. Today WILL be better. Feels better already by writing this down![/QUOTE

You did great, it could have been a lot worse then 2 restricted products. This is a great place to come and vent. Hope you are having a much better day today.

Sounds like everyone is doing really well at WI!! I hope it continues! My WI is tomorrow afternoon.

I'm hoping I get to actually see my coach this time. I decided not to email her after last week (fill-in for a second week and not a very good one at all). Instead, I will tell her how I feel face to face (something I NEVER do). I haven't decided completely if this will be my last WI with that clinic or not.

On the one hand I KNOW I can do everything she does (weigh and measure bust, hips, and waist), but on the other I'm still reluctant to give up the lifeline of a "coach". I guess it will depend on what she has to say tomorrow.
