Rennie, how was the weigh in? Great that you got to the gym! I believe colorado spring s is only about an hour south of denver.

Sum, rock on! Great job this month! I hope you continue to do well this weekend.

I had my smoothie for lunch yesterday but was so hungry by the time I got home I had a small snack, then went out to eat with a friend. Ate my whole plate of fish and chips, had a few beers, but managed to resist snacking on my friends appetizer.

I wish I could convince her to try 5:2. She is struggling to lose weight, and really wants to drops some pounds before she can get pregnant. I also think she might benefit from a ketogenic diet (high fat low carbs), since she has PCOS, but weight loss is such a difficult topic, even with my closest friend. I hope I didn't come across as bragging last night. Hopefully she saw me and was inspired that she can do it too?

Anyway, gonna try to eat lighter today and going on a bike ride with friends later. Have a great weekend everyone!

Sum on your 5.4lbs for May GONE I'm so happy for you I think this way of eating works for me also especially with being able to be accountable to someone (YOU) all day. I think the bulk of my problem is being in this house. When I finally get to working again and I have to take my meals with me I do a lot better because I don't like spending money on food to eat alone Thanks for the I'm sending it out to all of us also

Thanks noname so many of my friends are now on a WL journey. They would always tell me I looked good (when I was doing right) and ask me what I was doing but as soon as you tell someone that you gave up, bread, flour, baked goods, potatoes and pasta they cringe. But that is how I started out. I had to fully detox and I did it with the help of my church. I don't look at it as bragging. I look at it as sharing how I am making changes to better my health and self and so can they. Hopefully some of what you said will stick in her mind and she'll try it. I'll admit it is scary to give up so much it feels like you are taking all of the good away when it's actually bad when you record it all on paper which is also what I did before I started using MFP. Pen, paper, labels and a calorie counter book. ok I'm done ... that's good to know about Colorado Springs thanks ok on to my weigh in ...

... thank goodness for treadmills and 8 full hours of sleep. for me!!! Y'all know I started May 1 @ 159.8. I had a really rough time staying OP this month but thanks to a few tips from some really good friends here and on MFP I got it together these last few days. It was really water weight with all of the ups and downs. I am ending today May 31 at 160.6 only a .8 gain for the month and my fbs this morning was 98. I have not seen it that low EVER. (actually I did when I was on insulin while pregnant with the last two children) but not after being diagnosed with type II in 2011. What a blessing. I am very very happy. I am going to the gym with my son when my gym clothes dry. I sweat so much it looks like I have wet myself so I wear all black.

Okee, I definitely decided against the splurge day. Eating 1200-1400 (more likely high end of the range). -- I guess I am not mentally ready to splurge yet.

I am glad I did not splurge, I pulled off, by some miracle a 3.2 pound loss. I am at my new low weight! I exercised a lot yesterday and took over 25000 steps, I think that had to do something with it, plus I did drink all my water.

Today is a fast day. I can't keep my calories at 500, I always end up at 600+, but like today I am having salmon, which I think has "good" calories in it, so I am not too worried about it.

I am just really thrilled how this plan is working out for me! I hope it keeps working
B- Some eggs
L - None
D - Salmon, rice and veggie
620 cals

Weight 135.4
Loss of 3.2 pounds

Good morning ladies! How was the weekend?

Sum, congrats on the weight loss and being at your new low! So exciting!

Rennie, what is FBS? I've heard of 5:2 doing amazing things for people with diabetes, I hope it continues to help you and maybe this month you'll see your weight come down too Funny about wearing all black to the gym - I will only ever wear black pants to work out for the same reason. Shirts aren't as bad, though, because I get that fancy wicking material that doesn't seem to show sweat too much.

I ate quite well this weekend, but didn't completely overdo it. Had my fair share of drinks as well, but I think by and large this weekend was much better than my usual blow-out weekends. I'm fasting today, Wednesday and maybe Friday, and Tues/Thurs I will do no breakfast, just a smoothie for lunch and then normal dinner. That's the plan at least!

Yesterday was good, fasted. Scale went up a bit after that huge drop on Sunday morning. -- I drank a ton of water right before bed time, so maybe it was still some water weight.

Back to a normal eating today These fast days are becoming easier and easier.

So I made a goal to drop 4.4 pounds this month; it maybe a bit lofty goal, but all I can do is try That would bring me down to 131....flirting with the 120's. That thought makes me feel giddy!! I will be happy even if I were to drop 2 pounds.

My arms are starting to "come out". I can finally start seeing some muscle definition. They have been fat for so long. -- I have been working out over a year now, with weights, and it is finally starting to pay off. I knew I wanted to sculpt my body underneath the fat, even though no progress could be seen because of the extra weight I was carrying... I just wanted to make sure once that extra weight left, I was not left with a flabby but skinny body. I am hoping to be left skinny and "toned" bod -- Yeah, like that is going to happen at the age of 46 But in all seriousness, I want to look as good as I possibly can.

Today is my hospital volunteer day. I need to eat my lunch early, hopefully I will get my dinner in early as well and then the gym.

Funny ladies... The last two times I have worn cotton t-shirts to the gym and after my grueling session on the treadmill, I looked like I was caught in a rain shower I made a not to myself to start wearing those moisture wicking shirts.

nonameslob Sounds like you had a lovely weekend! How did your weight reflect the drinks? Or do you only weigh in once per week?

Rennie I hope you saw 15x.x this morning!!!

Sum I'm sure you can have that toned body you want, regardless of your age. If you work for it you will get it! And wow, 120s! You are getting quite near to your goal weight. I hope June is as good to you as May was

I sometimes weigh on Monday mornings to see the damage I have done lol but I didn't have a BM this morning so I reallllly didn't want to see the number. I'll weigh tomorrow morning after fasting today. I'm sure I went up a good 3-4 pounds, which is normal for me on the weekends and then it comes right back off and then some with fasting.

I am taking a break from 5:2 during my vacation this month, so I'm trying to be really good these next two weeks. I'm hoping I can manage to maintain my weight during vacation and intend to continue the break for the week after vacation, but we'll see how it goes. I might decide I'm better off going right back to it. I'd like to be 195 or less by the time I step on that plane!

I knew you would remember.

And that's fantastic! So does that mean you know when you're moving? What about jobs? So exciting!

My husband has a job where he travels 100%, as long as he is kinda near an airport, he is good. And I only do volunteer work (a lot), but that can be found anywhere.

You will be doing so many outdoorsy things in CO that you won't gain anything!!
