Hi ladies!!

Chinese food - eeekkkk! I went there on Mother's Day...the only had the buffet !! NOT GOOD... but I survived. Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do.

So WI last night...lost my 1 pound that I gained over the weekend.
I'm down in inches... 27.5 inches to date (lost 2.25 I think).

Pretty happy...the girls are shrinking but hey... I need to be proportionate or else I'll tip over! lol

HappyGirl - WAY TO GO! Doesn't it feel great?? You're doing AWESOME!

Dria - Woohoo to you! You're an inspiration - keep it up! I'm following you!!

Lee - that's AWESOME! Way to go!! You must feel good

Witchie - 30 inches!! You must be SO proud! I'm almost there too!! WOOT WOOT

Dria: Those pictures ROCK! The difference is inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

As for my chinese food dinner...it was the kind of event where the meal was preordered for the group and everyone shared dishes so I did my best (took only a tablespoon or so of rice, avoided all of the "deep fried" dishes...which were most of them...and ate little more than veggies) but still, UG!

This morning's wi I was up 1.8 pounds! Now, I know that cannot all be because of last night's dinner. It was also a different time of day than I usually go and I know that my weigh fluctuates ALOT throughout the day. Still to see the number back up at 250 was really disheartening. I had hoped that I had kissed the 250's goodbye for good. MY house scale is reading 249 again here so...I am hoping that my next wi will be back down and then the 250's will really be gone.

Momo: Take heart, that kind of weight fluctuation can be water retention due to sodium or time of day like you said. Life happens, and sometimes we have to be off program for a moment.

Dria: WOW! INSPIRATIONAL!

I've had to eat out a lot this week which is highly unusual. But I feel myself shrinking and I am certain that I made good choices when I did go out. My jeans are fitting better and better as the days go by. Being on track feels way better than not. HM works... I don't care what anyone says!

Meme: I'm sure you'll be dropping some good numbers!! And about HM - Of course it works - we are proof of it ... but it's a LIFESTYLE CHANGE and not a quick fix... that's why SO many gain weight when they are done... People say "Oh when I'm done, I'll have those chips,etc"...
And in a sense...I believe all diets work. Many people have seen great results with almost ALL the diets out there.
But...you have to be ready to make a lifestyle change...

I know that if I continue to eat like I was eating before, I'll get the same results... which is WEIGHT GAIN!

Dria: I can't see the pics...is everyone seeing them??

I have my WI tonight...we'll see how that plays out. Bowels are still slow... might take up my flaxseed oil again. HAPPY FRIDAY

Weighed in this a.m and I am the SAME geez I hate that! Aunt flo is visiting though so that may be it.

Dria: You look great! Good Job!!

Momo: Chinese is pretty high in sodium, so it will take a day or 2 to rid yourself of it.

Anyway, happy friday girls!

Hey guys,
I posted a couple weeks ago introducing myself and then kind of forgot all about it! So anyways I just started Herbal Magic 2 1/2 weeks ago and so far am down 11 pounds! WHOOHOOO! Very exciting stuff. 11 more pounds to go and I am out of the 200's for good! That's my mini goal! I've just went through and read some of the last posts and just wanted to say that you guys make me so motivated. It's great to see that you all are making wonderful progress. Keep up the great work!

Default Yahoo To Everyone!!!!

Yes I am shouting... shouting at the rooftops because we are all AWESOME!!! do you feel the energy??? Dria you look amazing!!!! Well done.

Great job to all those who lost this week!!!!!

As for me I lost another 2 pounds this week.. for a total of 16.6 pounds I am now 212.2 the last time I weighed this was when I was pregnant with my second daughter 10 years ago. My ending weight with her was 214, I only gained 14 pounds with her...I started at 200 pounds when I found out I was pregnant with her. My girlfriend noticed that my face looks thinner but nobody else has noticed yet. I tend to loose top to bottom.. and boobs disappear all together when I lose weight. OH well.

I agree with you Chantal about lifestyle change... and success on weight loss programs WE all can be successful on any program its what lessons we learned when we are done that will determine whether we lapse or not. Hopefully for all of us we won't lapse!!

anyways take care all of you I will see how Monday goes for me after working nights all weekend.

Good for you Lee! You should do the popcorn for your FE for nights. I think its like 3 cups? That may help you not to snack on anything else. Cheers!

I had my measurements done today. I am down just shy of 30 inches! Crazy!!!!!!! How can that not be noticeable? I feel good!

I just read an article recently on a new eating disorder called Orthorexia nervosa which refers to a nervous obsession with eating proper foods. While anorexia nervosa is an obsession with the quantity, orthorexia is an obsession with the quality of the food consumed.
People who suffer this do the following:
*Spending more than three hours a day thinking about healthy food.
• Planning tomorrow’s menu today.
• Feeling virtuous about what they eat, but not enjoying it much.
• Continually limiting the number of foods they eat.
• Experience a reduced quality of life or social isolation (because their diet makes it difficult for them to eat anywhere but at home).
• Feeling critical of others who do not eat as well they do.
• Skipping foods they once enjoyed to eat the “right’ foods.
• Feeling guilt or self-loathing when they stray from their diet.
• Feeling in “total” control when they eat the correct diet.

I just thought it was interesting and decided to share. Hope you don't mind.

Congrats everyone on this week's losses!

I went to the centre for my wi today (hoping to have at least lost the 1.8 I "gained" at my last one) and I lost 2.4. Yahoo!

Hopefully that will be the LAST time I see anything in the 250's!
