I see why people are reconsidering their weight goals. I have not been a diet like this before and you lose so much fat that you look like you weigh less than you do. My goal weight is 150 but I am looking like I did when I weighed about 10 lbs less than my current weight. And, clothes are fitting me as if I weighed 10 lbs less.
I am the same, I way 10lbs more than I did when I wore size 9 before, yet I am in a size 7. I changed my goal weight from 150 to 160 because of it.

Good Morning! Mention of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride has put me in a good mood this morning! That brings back memories. I also loved The Haunted Mansion. Watching the ghosts dancing in the ballrooom, so fun!

So, for once, I'm in love with my scale. I seem to be on a steady losing trend. I'm really excited about this and I feel like I'm really getting a handle on my eating! I hope everyone has a great day!

Thanks We were not in Boston yesterday but many of my friends and a few family members were either running or watching the race. My husband's aunt, uncle, cousin and his cousin's son were closest to it all - they were at the finish line waiting for his cousin's wife to cross, she finished at 2:34 and they were in the family meeting area around the corner when the explosions happened. So thankful that nobody I know who was there were among the injured.

The scales and grip-gadgets that send electromagnetic pulses through your body to measure fat %...well, they are as much science fiction as they sound. Don't get discouraged - how do you FEEL? Are you in a size you are comfortable with? Do you feel like you can maintain your weight at your current activity level? Healthy weight is SO much more than the numbers on a scale.
Thanks Scorbett!! I DO feel I will be able to maintain at the weight I choose (well....I did it for almost a year....just need to do it FOR LIFE this time). I dislike the scale ruling how I should feel!! You'd think I'd be over that by now!!

Hope u enjoy the week with your kiddos!!

I love reading this. It makes me so excited for maintenance, not just for the obvious weight loss and chance to eat more foods, but for the physical activity. Right now, freedom of movement is restricted by my weight itself -- bending down, crossing your legs, going for a hike in the hills, etc. I was telling my Dr how you lose that physical freedom slowly as you gain weight, until one day you realize how little you can do easily.

-----------------------------------------

Question: I've been having problems with one of my legs -- primarily my knee, but sometimes the pain shoots up my leg, making it seem more like a tendon/muscle issue. Long story short, I figure this is just a result of weight/stress on my knee and I've made an appointment with an ortho-doctor. However, I did remember that one side effect of IP is muscle cramps, so just in case, I just wanted to ask if anyone else ever experienced anything similar?

Default A1 Texan and other lost posts-need help replying!

Hi Y'all,

I am having trouble navigating this board. (my granddaughter could probably help me, but she's at school :-) Yesterday I posted on the daily, and A1 Texan and someone else (sorry, can't remember) replied to me about living in Round Rock. Now I can't find those posts and even if I did, I don't know how to reply to individual posts... driving me crazy.

To the lady who asked about Round Rock Honey.... Oh, yesssss.... it's divine. Nice people, too, as you know. Of course, no honey on this deal right now, but someday... :-)

Anyway, if anyone can help me figure out how to respond to a post and not just the whole thread, that would be great.

Thanks!
J'Anne

J'Anne - A1Texan here. I tried to send you a PVT message but your settings won't allow them. I live in Round Rock and have been on IP since December 10th. Let me know if you need any suggestions or encouragement and I'll be glad to help you along through this.

Great first weigh in! Congrats

Today's hubby's bday. Having people over for dinner and cake. Savin my restricted peanut bar for cake time. Shoveled 2 feet of snow! Feeling much better today! I feel like I can conquer week 3! Oh for dinner grilling hamburgers and maybe hot dogs depending on how many kids will be here. With my burger I eat it between 2 pieces if romaine lettuce for my bun.

Good job everyone staying OP!

Here's the link to yesterday's daily chat: IP Daily Chat Monday 4/15/2013

It's locked now but if you find who you want to reply to, click on their user id and you can send a PM. Appears A1Texan tried to send you one but your settings won't allow it at the moment.

PS: I'm just north of San Antonio. Big event at Camp Mabry this weekend if you enjoy such things. I'll be there set up with my 1954 Israeli Defense Forces M37 truck right in front of the museum so anyone that wants to swing by and say hello you're welcome. It's free to the public!
