Lindy - I wished we lived around the corner so that we could go rollerblading together! Such good exercise...

So, things are not so good with new guy unfortunately. Not quite sure what's going on but we didn't end up getting together this weekend at all. We hung out for a while on Weds night but he told me he was struggling with gout which is like inflammatory arthritis in your foot so he went home early and was looking forward to getting an rx filled by his doc so that he could get better. We talked on the phone on thursday night after touching base via txt during the day and all was fine - he was hoping to sleep better that night and was funny and in good spirits on the phone. I knew he was going to finish work on friday around 3pm and we had plans to get together that night. I suggested on thurs night that he take a nap when he got home on friday to catch up on missed sleep. On Friday, he left me a msg saying that he was starting a nap around 4pm and would call me in a few hours. Didn't hear from him again that night. Turns out he slept until the middle of the night so it would have been too late for him to get in touch. Didn't hear from him all day Saturday (weird, right?) until he called after I texted at 5pm asking if he was feeling better. He was cranky and groggy on the phone and did not want me to bring takeout over or anything. So, he said he'd touch base on Sunday (yesterday) and we left it at that. No contact yesterday at all. I texted him around 10 last night hoping that he was feeling better and that he had had a nice time with his mom and that I was going to bed. No reply (although it's possible he went to bed early) and nothing so far today and it's now after lunch. Very strange behavior. Either it's over and he's lost interest or he becomes a completely other (kind of yucky) person when he's dealing with anything medical. Neither is good but I guess it's better to find out early. Any advice?

On the positive side, got lots of exercise and sunshine this weekend and had fun with family and friends. Am heading to Philly for work until Thursday so it'll be nice to be out of town with something different to think about for a few days...

Dance - my advice is to give him space. I am a firm believer that distance can make the heart grow fonder and if it doesnt, then it is just not meant to be. It is not easy but I think you should now sit back and wait. And if he questions you at all why you havent contacted him, dont make it a game and say "because you didnt contact me", just say you've been swamped with work or that you have been busy getting into a new workout routine. Take the focus off him. *sigh* I hate that dating has to be a game but this is what I had to do for 3 years. And every guy liked me but it was only the ones that were absent minded that I liked a lot. Have you thought about maybe resuming dating other people again? Just to keep your mind off of him?

How is the healthy eating going?

Hey everyone!!!!! It was a super crazy weeke.d and i am totally exhausted. Even my trainer and friends at the gym noticed.how tired i was! Lol went to graduation on friday and ate broccoli at the celebratory dinner! Lol saturday turned out to be a flop. My mom went and did her thing my hibby and dad drove 3 hours 1 way to go to cabelas and my sis and her guy brought their new puppy down. Sunday we went to his moms and rushed back so i could help with my sis's surprise engagement!!! It was so funnt because she did not want to come to my house seeing as she just spent all weekend here.so to get her up here.i had tell her i was sick and.might habe to go to the er. I felt so bad. But any who.... His buddies cought up to her on their motorcycles and she still didnt put 2 and 2 together. Long story short.... She called damian (her guy) and told him to tell them to move she had to get to her sister. Lol they escorted her all the way to the exit off the interatate and he was holding a neon pink and green sign saying merry me? She never saw him and one of the motorcycles had to stop to get her to look. And all we saw was damian drop his head....we thought she had said no(i was fixing to kill her! Lol) but all she said was: yelling of course: really ur gonna do this now? I have to get to my sister!!!!! Damian pointed to me and.said there she is......he had to do it twice. She finally looked over and saw me. I just had this goofy grin and waved at her! She got out of the car and yelled at the 3 acomplices i hate u i hate u and i hate u. She pointed at damian and said i love u. He dropped to 1 knee and she accepted! Lol shes of course fine with it now and loves that she has a fubny story. But dang im glad its over!!!! Lol if your on facebook. There are a ton of pics on my page.

Well i drooped for the firat time with my trainer into the 160's!!!!! We were both estatic!!! Very few left........then i just mai.tain! I cant wait for those days!!! Well ladies i hate to not write individuals but im pooped and have to catch up o. Sleep!!!! Talk to yall tomorrow!!!

Hey girls. It looks like our thread is starting to die off. :-( This has happened in the past so it is no surprise. At least I am friends with all of you on Facebook so I can still keep an eye on all of your happenings. Are any of you on myfitnesspal? Im Not sure if that is going to be blocked because it is soliciting another site so if it does, Ill send you a message on FB. If so, look for me nclindberg That way we can view each others progress and food intake. Even if I dont like what I record, I still record.

Do any of you have Publix's where you live? If so...oh my gosh, they have a new wrap that is TO DIE FOR and is super healthy and low in calories...and ALL VEGGIE! It's in the sushi section, it is called an avocado vegetable wrap.

I'm back, don't give up on me yet! I was just out of town for work for a few days. Good trip and did pretty well eating and exercising. Went for a run in the park with a buddy and will shoot for the same again tomorrow.

If you guys are up for keeping this going, I am. I need the accountability. I do not want to see my numbers slowly climb back up!!!

Hope you're all doing well..

Yikes! I'm up to 159 this morning! I hope some of that is water weight that will come right back off quickly. I'm going to stick to plan 100% today and run after work. I'm dying to get back to the low 150s again. I felt so much better about myself then. I wont see new guy until weds - I'm hoping I can be down a few by then.

Morning, girls! Small progress - back to 158. I'm shooting for 155 again by 6/1. I can't believe I let some boy challenges throw me off plan - that is NOT happening again!

I'm headed out for a run in the sunshine in a little and then over to a friend's house to help her pack up her kitchen before a major remodel. Should be a good calorie burning day.

Hey girls! Glad to see everyone is still checking in. I will continue to report in here, as I see everyone else doing the same. I am exceptionally tired today and am struggling to do ANYTHING, this includes work. I have no idea why either because I got a good nights rest. Oh well. I havent hopped on the scale but I am feeling so good these days in my clothing and swimsuit so I dont really care. I took off from 30 day shred Saturday and Sunday because we were on the beach. I am resuming it today and dont plan on taking off anymore days until my vacation. Then I will be off from it for 8 days. I do plan on doing a lot of walking and continue with the ab challenge and squat challenge so at least I am doing something.

I am also going to throw in one day of rollerblading and one day of swimming a week. I may bump myself up more later on but I am taking baby steps. Is anyone logging their food on MFP? I want to check out what others are eating. I was doing extremely low carb and not losing so I started adding carbs back in. Like whole wheat bread, wraps, etc. Also granola bars.

Ok, Im going to lunch shortly. I will check in later today. Take care.

Lindy - congrats on feeling great in a swimsuit - seriously, is there ANYTHING better than that?

Burgundy - loved the fb pix of you and the walking dead guy - glad you got to see him! I haven't started watching that show yet - am planning on a marathon one of these days when I get a cold or something. You and Lindy make it sound so fun...

All good here - fun chat with the new guy on the phone last night and we are finally getting together in person on Weds (after two weeks of not seeing each other). Not sure yet how busy he'll be over the long weekend but I have all kinds of ideas of how to occupy his time if he lets me

Got tons of exercise this weekend and looking forward to keeping it going this week. Will walk to dinner tonight to meet some friends - should be fun.

Hope you guys are doing great...

Ex has been in touch way too often recently (and wants to be friends *again* whatever that means since we weren't ever just friends in the past) but I kicked him to the curb rather firmly with a don't contact me at all until at least November email and then we'll see. Looking forward to the absence of distractions on that front.

Dance - so proud of you that you are sticking to your guns with your ex. The problem with ex's is they only come around when you are happy in another situation, its like they have a radar that goes off. Just remember, he was meant to be your ex, especially after your trip. Keep us posted on how things are going with the new guy. I gained so much of my weight once I got into the relationship with my now boyfriend. I got comfortable and stopped working out (because I wanted to spend time with him) and we were dating so we ate out a lot. I think a lot of relationships are like that. Just stay on track the best you can and offset your shortcomings with a good workout.

I hopped on the scale today at it said 189! Can you believe it?! Ridiculous. But I am now wearing size 10 pants and dresses so that stupid scale is just that...stupid, lol. I still eat pretty healthy and average 1300 a day with 1800 on weekends. Certainly not enough to GAIN all this weight so I finally get the concept that muscle weighs more than fat.

I bought a pair of size 10 shorts today. Need to lose a couple more lbs cause they are a little snug but not too bad. So exciting.

Woohoo Burgundy! Isnt it funny how we are still in the 180's but getting down to size 10's?! I love it.

Well girls, I am really excited to report that the kangaroo pouch that you get after having a baby, the kangaroo pouch that I have had for the past 12 years since I had Gabriella, the same kangaroo pouch that was still there at my lowest weight is now GONE! Yes GONE! I am beyond excited. When I return from my vacation in early June, I am going to look into another one of Jillian Michaels DVD's and do that. I mean....20 minutes a day and I have gotten extreme results in under 30 days. I am quite amazed and have every incentive of keeping with the program.
