Hey JM - Thanks!! Yeah... it only took me a year
So I'd like to thank God, and the Academy... Hee! couldn't resist: it's Saturday, no work and feeling goofy today.

Seriously, I found this thread and saw a bunch of women who'd managed to lose 100lbs+ and you guys inspired me to make an effort last year... So where IS everybody? Come on this thing is too good for 4-5 posts a week.

PS: Go go go Juliemarie! 3lbs is nothing for you!!!

Hi Friends

Life is busy, for all of us...........but I am happy to keep checking in and adding small baby losses . I am going to set a new goal....a birthday goal. I didn't make my friend's wedding goal, but I was fine with that. I have had a continuous downward trend, and that is fine with me.

I will check in again soon, just wanted to stop in and say, "heeeyyyy."
xoxo

Hi everyone,

I have to admit that I've been lurking and not posting cause it was a little quiet.

Today I'm at 19.8# gone. So just one tiny step away from the next mini goal of -20#.

I recently bought a Pandora-like bracelet set that is for tracking weight loss. It's got different beads that have "LB"s listed (1LB, 5LB, 10LB, etc). So right there on my wrist is a reminder of how far I've come if I go to reach for that hot fudge sundae

Next goal is -26.6# lost = 10% of my starting weight. No particular timeline, as hubby and I are just following the program. Plus this Sunday will be tough with lunch with hubby's mother and 2 grandmothers and dinner out with my mother. But, our policy has been that if we have a less than stellar day eating wise but enjoyed ourselves, it's fine so long as we hop back onboard the next day.

Hope everyone else is doing well. I think for weight loss it probably is the story of the "hare". Slow and steady wins the race.

Robyn- That bracelet sounds like a fantastic idea! Do you know what brand it is, or maybe where to buy one? I've been really wanting a visual for weight loss, like the jars with glass rocks or something, but a bracelet sounds WAY cooler.

I hope to be on here more often now, the school semester is finally over, and my life can resume. Pleased to announce being 21.5 pounds down as of today! I've set a goal to be in the 100's by July 1st, so a little under 2 months.
Congrats on the progress everyone, let's ramp up this conversation!

Miranda,

If you google a woman named Kim Bensen, you'll find her web site. I ordered the charms from her (in my case, I ordered what she calls Journey Set B). I originally tried them on a regular herringbone-like bracelet. But I spend all day on the computer and they'd swing around and hang below my wrist and dangle against the keyboard.

So just today, as a matter of fact, I went to my Hallmark store and they had a bangle type bracelet where one of the end beads un-screws so you can slide the beads on the bracelet. With a "stopper" bead on either end of the weight loss beads (and given that I bought a bangle bracelet that is tight fitting), it sits right on the top of my wrist. I'll see if I can post a photo in my profile.

Hi Dixie, Hey-heyyyy Nicole, Joan, Miranda, Robyn! Great to see the chatter picking up.
Congratulations on the losses - Joan, are you using a tape measure? you're probably losing inches...
Robyn what a great way to stay motivated. I actually have an add-a-bead bangle and am on my way to look for Kim Bensen - thanks for the tip!
My sister had a b-day party Saturday, and the girl cooks better than anyone I know... so I'm up 2lbs but I had a great time. So back OP today!
Have a great week everyone!

I did it!!!!

I hit the 20 lbs lost mark. Actually 20.6# lost as of Saturday morning.

And then I promptly undid it.

Saturday - 35th wedding anniversary party and a wedding reception
Sunday - Mothers' Day lunch with in-laws and dinner out with my mom.

Today, back up 2.4 lbs.

Oh well. At least today and tomorrow are TakeOff. Since hubby's in the same situation, we decided to do TakeOff 2 (we usually do the "kickoff" version). So hopefully that get's us back on track. I figure much of it is water weight from the added sodium in the restaurant food and the alcohol at the parties

So next mini-goal, back to 20.6# lost by May 21 (one week). And up to 26.6# lost by June 11 (3 more weeks - 2 pounds per week). And that will be the 10% lost mark.

Hope everyone else had a less impactful Mothers' Day weekend.

I'm back. I have found myself maintaining but not losing. So frustrating. I know it has to be sabatoging myself.

I am so sick of the stomach blob but yet it doesn't seem to stick long term. I know I can do this. 7 yrs ago, I was in the 130s. I know I can get there again.

Mini goal: I want to be in the 170s by Sunday, May 20th!

Oh so quiet.

Oh well, I'll chime in. One week mini-goal accomplished. My goal was to be at 20.6# lost as of today. I'm actually at 21.2# lost. So yay!!!

But I am so confused. Stay POP and lose maybe 0.2 to 1.0 pound per week. This weekend, I decided to be more flexible. Saturday night had a McDonald's double cheeseburger at 10pm cause I hadn't yet had dinner and I had a protein, 2 starches and a fat left. Did the same at lunch yesterday (we take Grandmother-in-law to church every Sunday and then she insists on McDonald's for lunch after church ).

And poof. Weight lost. I know I can't do that every day. But it's so odd that I lose weight in the days after I give in and have McD's (still within my daily allotment, although certainly not the healthiest choices).

Anyway. Back to healthy foods today. And 5.4# to go in the next 3 weeks to hit next mini-goal.

Hope the rest of you are well and are working towards your goals.

Have a good one.
