Hi gals!

Nothing much to report here. My body seems to like the 173 number. I've been here for 2 weeks now.

Today's Info:

Breakfast: Berry Berry Kix, skim milk, coffee (350)
Snack: DD egg white wake up wrap (150)
Lunch: tilapia and rice (300)
Snack: veggie straws (130)
Dinner: Taco salad (300)
Dessert: Chocolate (130)
Calories: 1360 (and I'm feeling peckish!)

Oh, I had to share a comment I had in the store the other day. An elderly gentleman who knows me saw me in the store and said "You've lost some weight, haven't you?". I smiled and said "Yes, about 88lbs". He said "I knew it!" and then added "The thinner you get, the prettier and prettier you are.". Talk about flooring me! I guess I was unattractive when I was bigger? But, I ended up laughing it off. I bet he probably just says what everyone else thinks...and he's about 90 years old, too. But, still...I was kinda

I have been having a super super hard time with cravings this weekend. Oh man, I can't even write it in words. I have been trying to stay busy...reading and watching movies. My family is in sabotage mode. The kids are all about muffins and ice cream and even DH (who doesn't even like sweets)bought tootsie rolls when we went on treats for family (minus me ) run. I really was just gonna get the dog something (she looked bored for the first time in 10 years, so I thought I'd spoil her). But not one thing for me, and it literally hurts right now. I'm achy and jonsing. I've been dealing with a headache for a week and I can't even be sure if this isn't psychosomatic. All I know is I WANT donuts and cake and I want them bad.

But with each day I don't cave into it, I feel a little more successful, although it hasn't shown on the scale in a month. I've had intestinal trouble for the same length of time, so I'm wondering if something is going on. I am trying so hard to stay positive, even haven't written to you all just so I didn't sound like a drag. And I'm not even sure why I'm doing it now.

Maybe I'll encourage someone down the road, IDK. I really don't, but I'm here, I'm fighting the cravings, the discouragement, the saboteurs, myself...it's so hard and at this point I don't even know if I'll see results, but I've got this mentality that I've got to do this because I deserve it...I deserve good health. To say I deserve anything has been the hardest triumph in my life so losing weight because I deserve should be a little easier

I hope you all have a wonderful week. Stay positive!

Hi Everyone!

Shells Thank you! It's good to see you. Sometimes people just don't say things the right way. They are well meaning, though.

Mama Hang in there. I had some cravings today, too. Sometimes it's rough.

See, I would totally get that because who finds themselves as attractive at higher weights than lower weights. I "know" I'm prettier at a lower weight, why wouldn't everyone else? I would take that as a really nice compliment from that old coot!

Hi Everyone,

I'ved been visiting 3FC for years, gained & lost, gained & lost and finally tired of the yo-yo. Calorie counting, though relatively new to it, along with intermittent fasting, appears to be working and keeps my energy levels even. I'm liking this.

What has been missing for me is genuine support and accountability. Tonight, I decided to get proactive and join in on some ongoing discussion threads here. It's my hope that sharing what I'm experiencing will assist me in staying the course and hopefully help others who may be finding resistance. My immediate goal is to make this a lifestyle change and say "buh-bye" to yo-yo sizes forever.

Jean

ps: MamaKat, have you tried probiotics to ease the digestive issues? I resisted them for a while but found they made a noticeable difference in how I felt and got me back on track

HELLO! I've been kinda MIA the last week or so. We went to TN on vacation and now we are finally home, unpacked and settled. I gained a pound this week but considering my atrocious eating...I'm cool with it. Back OP tomorrow. We had a great time with the kids and I even got some hiking in. Well..I think it's finally night night time...I've been up with a sick chihuahua....I hate when they get sick at the babysitter...hope he makes it through. Night

Good Morning, Everyone!

Weigh In: 145 (I think TTOM has started)

Up: 1.6 pounds (I didn't have enough calories for a gain, so it could be the carbs/sugar, pending TTOM, or the fact that I went too bed to late. I am betting that it's a combo of all 3 )

Ready2BThinna Hi and Welcome!

Larry Thank you! Great job on staying so consistent!

DZackery A pound is not bad at all for vacation!

Happy Monday morning!

The scale is creeping upward, to 194.0 this morning. TOM is coming. My feet are sausages and my boobs are about to pop, so I'm sure I'm carrying around some water weight.

My calories were pretty high yesterday, about 1850. We made some ice cream, mint chocolate trip, with the mint from the garden. I couldn't say no to that!

Ovulation came early (a huge gift) and a bigger gift is that I'm losing already whereas I usually hold that weight for a few days before dropping the water. Still 1.4 pounds over my all time low, but 1.0 down from my ovulation high. (.6 down from yesterday).

Doing Zumba this evening. Have to take my younger son to the dentists this morning and then I'm canceling his Psychologist appt. I'm not feeling this counselor is going anywhere with what we need treatment for.

Good morning everyone,
Last night or yesterday I guess rained so much it flooded the bottom floor of our mall! That's crazy. I live at the beach and usually they are getting evacuated but I didn't hear the sirens at all yesterday...so weird. Turns out it was the drainage system that broke because it couldn't handle the intake. But all that ground floor is now destroyed so who knows when the mall will be reopened, crazy!

ReadyToB I take probiotics, but the "regular" thing isn't really my problem. To be honest after 2 colonoscopies and one endo, plus a full intestinal pill camera the doctor hasn't really been able to "find" the problem. On one had, I'm thankful as I just feel like I have enough on my plate. On the other hand, not knowing what causes such pain and sometimes severe bleeding (last episode being last year) is frustrating and a bit scary. Aside from going through all those stinking procedures theres not much they can do if they can't find the source. My doctor says Celiac's is the cause although she can't "prove" it. I think my case fascinates her and since my insurance is good she likes do the everything she can. The camera pill was very exciting (even among my DH's facebook friends). LOL I'm glad I can entertain others along the way A lot asked what happens to the pill...I just walk away My DH can field those questions by himself.

So it's time to push on! The rainy weather is making my muscles scream out, but I'm gonna ignore them and pay better attention to myself starting today. It's time to return to the gym. I am hoping that it will help me push through this depression as last night was NOT good. I began to contemplate which would be the lesser evil. That's not good. I made it through another day without doing damage to myself or my diet so that is good. Now I need to think of offense instead of defense. I need to get proactive and what better place than the gym. I need to get these muscles warmed up!

I hope you all have a wonderful and healthy day.
