Momof5K- Way to get yourself back on track. Not only did you get out of those 250's you have run away from them. Excellent work!!!!

Mememegogirl- Im very glad to hear your feeling a difference in the clothes department. I think thats where I had most of my problems is I had gone down 20lbs which is tech 2 dress sizes but I didnt feel like I was shrinking lol. Good job. And you didnt just get out of the 180's you knocked it out of the park!!! Fabulous!

Chantal0123- Im glad you added me on facebook. Good stalking work.. LOL I really am joking I havea warped sense of humor you may have picked up on from my facebook page. What a gorgeous woman you are!!! She is smokin' ladies!!!! Im glad you got to see my pics too!!!

Witchie.- I feel ya. I weighed in the same Friday as I was Wednesday. Meh staying the same is better then a kick in the pants up eh lol. Im sure you have gone down this weekend and look forward to hearing about it on Monday!!

fbenjamin- Glad to see you back. 11lbs is a very powerful start. Your doing really great!! I cant wait to hear you kicked those 200's to the curb and hit "onderland" as they call it on here.

lee2lee- 2lbs is FANTASTIC!!!! Thats a great week!! Dont get me started on boobs..... lol My husband was teasing me the other night. I grabbed my boobs and looked at him.... and He said yeah they are gone... we are gonna have to get you a training bra.. I smacked him for that LMAO So til your man says you need a training bra no need to get upset LMAO


Now myself on the other hand. As mentioned I weighed the same 134 on Friday as I did Wednesday.... now.... I was a bad bad girl this weekend. It was my husbands birthday and we went to BP to which I did order properly.... However..... my husband got the cactus cuts........ can you say TEMPTATION!??! I ate probably honestly...... 8 of them EEPS.. WITH SOME DIP EEEEEEEEEEEEEEPS. Also...... sigh.. I had one small bite of his Cake....... Jeannies Cake come on I cannot refuse....... Its the stupid little cheats.. yes to me these are very little cheats its not like I ate a bag of chips or had an ice cream cone to myself or what not. but when I cheat even a lil tiny bit it shows on the scale.. I will admit my cheats to my ladies tomorrow and they will laugh at me for being so honest about my lil cheats.
My friend and I went for a 3 mile trek thursday night and I plan to hit the gravel with my ipod tonight......
Im human Im allowed to be bad once in awhile right?!?! lol Ugh the guilt...... LOL
Hope your all having a great weekend. Sorry this is so long if your still reading along with me lol

Everyone is such an inspiration and a great motivator! I'm glad to hear about everyone's successes (and cheats!!) I was down 2lbs on Thursday. But had a night out at the casino, and some wings last night... the scale will be the judge in the morning!

That post about Ortho-nervousa was an interesting read. I've never heard of it before.

ALSO

Ricotta cheese? Yay or nay? and how much is a serving?

Default Cheats...

All I have to say is we are human.. and we can't be 100% all the time.. don't sweat it is what I say. As long as we catch ourselves before we go off the deep end...then I say its ok. Get back on track. Dria you have done so well a cheat here or there is ok its the reality. I too indulged I had a small iced cap with milk which is in the dining out guide. A quarter of a bagel... bad bad girl and a stick of a nib licorice BAD BAD oh well I will have to work hard to get rid of the damage.

I hope all had a good weekend... I wonder what happened to UFF?? I hope she is ok and will join us again. To see my picture before look at my diet blog.. click the link on the left of my username.

take care will chat soon

Then I came home did 10 lunges each leg... Ill pay for those tomorrow.
And 50 sit ups. And some leggie things I do...... and 10 push ups. its all I could manage lol. Apparently my arms are super weak. IN MY DEFENSE graves eats your muscles so....... lol thats my story and Im sticking to it lol.
So Tonight my home scale reads 133 which is good.. hopefully tomorrow morning my home scale will say umm 131 so I will clock in at 132 tomorrow at W.I lol.... wishful thinking I think lol.
I shall check your pics out Lee2lee!!!

Ricotta cheese... I dunno.. I love it but not sure how much would be allowed your best bet is to ask your girls at the H.M Depot!
Til tomorrow Ladies!!! Have skinny dreams

Default Update!

Hi there!

Hopefully, everyone had a pretty fabulous weekend! Weather was close to perfect... CLOSE... lol

To all of you who cheated... I find it all depends in what ways and how YOU feel about it. I had a small...almost tiny piece of cake (my Dad's bday).
That I felt wasn't a BIG deal... But when I had my poutine on my 4th week... I didn't feel so great about that.

The good part for me...is whatever I gain on the weekend (when I cheat), I lose by the Wednesday. I'm lucky.

KEEP IT UP!!! WE'RE ALMOST THERE!!

On my part, no WI on Friday. We decided to give a coat of stain on our deck so I thought it was better for me to skip WI. I'll go tonight.
I'll have a bigger #.... I weighed myself at home last night and I'm thinking I might be done 3 pounds from Weds...which would give me 4 pounds this week... WE SHALL SEE

I gave LOTS of my clothes away...and again this morning, wanted to wear this pair of pants that I LOVE... well, i didn't have to unbuttoned them to slide them on my hips... that gives you an idea!! Another pair for my mom... LOL

Hi! I'm here too! WI this morning said I was down 0.8lbs which meant I broke the 160 mark! woo hoo! This weekend was tough...went to my future Sister In Law's bachelorette party. Didn't eat any of the chips, dip etc. So very proud of myself. And only had 4oz of red wine at the house party part then one vanilla vodka and diet coke at the bar. Again, so very good of me! Just watched many of the other girls consume way to much alcohol and calories! haha

Also had a few cheats this weekend but nothing major...so being down .8lbs from last week was a huge accomplishment for me. I am trying to stay on program this week and be down even more by the weekend. Meal planning is key for me.

Are the girls at your centers really motivating? Seems as though some of the girls at my HM center are just ho hum. They always say woo hoo and ask if i have any questions, but that's it. Just wondered what your centers are like.

Hope everyone else had a good WI and that the scale is moving down, down, down.

Hope to be on the treadmill while watching the Bachelorette tonight!

W/I was good to me today.
Last week Monday weigh in 135.6lbs
This week Monday weigh in 133.6
So even with cheats and such I still went down 2lbs this week.
From Friday I went down not as much as I could have or whats normal for me but still down so Ill take it!!!
Also...... Lost 3.5" inches this week...

So grand Total Starting week 16... 42.6lbs gonzo and 54.5" off my body..... heres to a good week lol of behaving myself

I really enjoy the ladies at my centre. Young group of girls around my age or so. So I feel I can identify with them. Only one is more shy the rest are fairly outgoing and such but I do have my own personal favorite of course

Do you feel less lonely now Chantal?
It has been a busy couple of days! Meal planning is what has saved me. Isn't it great that we have a plan that is so flexible? There are so many foods to choose from! I am very happy with that. Today I added a new thing to my menu: lentils and rice. How wholesome is that? The rip-off is that it counts as a full starch for the lentils alone and only half a protein (you have to add the rice or the body isn't able to process the protein) ... but at the end of the day the health benefits far outweigh the fact that you lose most of your starches for the day all in one shot.

FYI... I got the go ahead to try some non-weight bearing exercise. SO this week I will be returning to my hot yoga studio! I AM STOKED! And I will be exploring the possibility of water running too. What an adventure! I am still super proud of my progress. When I eventually go back to work, (which by the way I have been told won't be allowed by my Doctors for another 8 weeks) they won't believe that I've been off work with a back injury, on bed rest and still losing weight! What an accomplishment! *pats self on back* lol

Good losses over the weekend gals! Keep it up!

I have been at 4 different centres - all ho hum -... since this is my THIRD (and final!!) time on HM... and the centre I have now is GREAT. It is not very busy and there are only 2 ladies. Almost every time I go in we make a minigoal (to be down a lb, get my water in, exercise, etc). But what keeps me motivated the most is hearing about other people's successes and looking at before and after pictures LOL.

Even after a huge wing cheat, and night at the casino i was down 1.25lbs!! That puts me at 3.25lbs so far this week, but I have one more WI on Wednesday before I tally it up.

Thanks for the response on the ricotta, I will stay away from it until I ask my HM ladies!

Keep up the work everyone
