Okay, welcome to Week 10.

My goals this week are:

2. Swap rice vinegar for salad dressing.
3. No "flex points" to be used this week.

Everyone have a great weekend and here's to staying OP!!!

Hello? Anyone there? Just me, huh?

Well, I did pretty well this weekend until yesterday. Had one too many helpings of corn on the cob and halibut. I am up a couple pounds this morning, but hope to hunker down and have a good three days before weigh in.

Hubby returned from Hawaii and we are all happy he's home.

Hope everyone is doing okay.

Chequita, look at how close you are to under 300!!! Oh my goodness,we are going to need to party in a couple of weeks. Great for you! I am so excited for you. You have done a wonderful job!

I am excited also because I am getting the Gazelle this week/weekend. Do you know what that is? It's the Tony Little machine and I think it looks like fun. Exercise being fun? No way!!

Dan leaves this weekend, right? Have fun, Dan!

chach let me know how you like the gazelle. i think it looks awesome, but you are right, exercise fun? i can hardly wait to be in twoterville. 299 lbs. sounds so much smaller than 356 lbs. and for me 57 lbs. will be a major accomplishment.

Chequita, I agree that is has been an amazing accomplishment. In a very short amount of time, also! It should make you feel good and also really be curious how much smaller you will be by year's end!

I'll let you know how I like the Gazelle once I get it home.

Sorry that I haven't logged on in a while; been real busy getting ready to leave on Saturday - - yes, this Saturday! So much to do . . . Dieting has been just ok; I am going to try to do well the next several days and then not worry too much about it until I get back.

Chequita: That is some awesome progress. I am really excited for you.

Chach: no flex points, huh? Are you sure that is a good idea? You don't want to slow your metabolism down too much by unduly restricting the calories.

I have not been feeling well. Both Linda and I came down with very similar symptoms late yesterday afternnon. We both skipped dinner and went straight to bed after getting home from work. Good thing I had prepped the kids dinner yesterday morning. Anyway, the dog was barking non-stop last night. I finally had to move her into my bedroom, which just gets the cats all agitated. ONly slept a couple of hours. So, now I'm dragging my tail when I really need to get a lot of stuff done. Oh well, I will be ready when Saturday comes, that is for certain!

I will try to log on again in a couple of days before leaving. Be well

Dan

Hi All!

Dan: The flex points are additional points over the regular ones for the day. They give you an extra 35 per week. I don't want to use those so much, because I am actually getting ready for the point reduction next week. If I lose 0.2 pounds this week, then I am down 2 points per day, new weight category. I am actually finding I am leaving around 5 over a day. Good luck on the dieting. Have fun and relax. Vacations are to be enjoyed, and be sure you and your wife do that. Heck, have a margarita for me!!!

Chequita: Looks like it will be just you and me for a week or so. We are going to keep up this great streak we are on, right?

Weigh in tomorrow. I am going to try and not get so stressed out over the whole thing. I think that lends itself to not showing as much of a loss, with all that adrenaline pumping because I am so nervous. I need to chill out and relax. I am almost 100% positive I will lose the 0.2 and get that bookmark. I'd like to show a 3 pound loss.

Take care!

Chach

Chequita, thanks for the kind words! I am hoping that tonight will be bookmark night! I am really hoping for about 2 or 3 pounds lost. We will see if that happens. Gotta keep the thoughts light and happy.

Dan probably won't even think about us once! Oh, the shame! Just kidding! I am sure he's not even going to have time to do anything but kick back and relax!

I'll check in tomorrow morning with hopefully a loss!

Chach

Hey Chequita!

Good news. I am not only the proud new owner of my first 5 pound loss bookmark, but I also lost a total of 4.2 last week, bringing my 3 week total up to 9 pounds!!!! One pound shy of my next 5 pound star!!! I am so excited! I didn't think I would do that well, but the scales gods were good to me!!!!

Okay, goals for this week:

1. Maintain previous goals, except for the "No flex points". I'll use them if I need them.
2. Practice "switching" at least a couple times a day. That is the practice of swaping out a bad eating habit in your mind for a good one. i.e. Imagine the candy bar going into the mouth, then switch that with the image of a healthy snack going in your mouth. It's a good concept and helps to get rid of those bad habits. My habit I am focusing on switching this week is the mindless tv eating. I'm really bad about that. I'm going to swap the image of the food going into my mouth for an image of me knitting and drinking water.

Hope you have a great day/week!!!

Chach
