Hi Turtles,
Tough going here with Labor Day parties all here and then watching grandson for two sleepovers. Trying to be flexible, but food is responding to stress and that's just silly. I vow to stop it now!

Good luck to us all. Let's think about a new challenge. I know the Labor Day challenge worked out well for many. and to you!
Judy

Hi turtles - I am with you all with scale being up & seriously, enough!

Have my Tops tonight & definately will be staying for the meeting. Really need it this week. And the summer fun continues - this weekend is Ribfest
so planning on eating super light before & after.

Even though I didn't do great on our challenge - I still think it kept food/exercise in the forefront of things & some, like Terri did great.
So will be good to have another challenge soon

See you "lighter"

Bandit, I'm with you. My weight is up but I'm set to tackle this.

Susan, I saw your note on Facebook and I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. Know we are all sending you our condolences and love.
Judy

Hi turtles

I am back up to 184# and not happy with that. Did my 3 mile tape
this a.m. and packed ALL my food for the day (ribfest was yummy, as well as breakfast out with my gs)

Hoping everyone is back at it as well

Hi Turtles,
Oh, my weight is up too. I seem to keep on saying that. In the meantime I am now on Food Lovers Fat Loss System. If I lose weight on this, it will be a miracle. Complete opposite of Jenny Craig where the food portions were tiny. This plan allows you to eat 3 meals and at least 3 snacks in the day.
I'll let you know how I do.

In the meantime, good to see you here Life! Re-joining WW's sounds like a smart thing to do. Good luck with your efforts. :

Terri, way to go to get to the gym. If I find some good recipes, I'll pass them along. They might help with the food portion of our weight loss journey. You've got the gym part down pat.

Princess, I'm sending you sympathy and condolences. I am sorry for your loss.

Love,
Judy

Judy- I am interested to hear how your doing on the new program and if it works for you.

Life- good to hear from you. Glad to hear your back.

Terri- Great Job.

Princess-Must have missed a post. Hope your doing ok. Your in our thoughts.

Bandit- just keep on keepin' on.

I have an annoying cycle each month. Around that TOM and the week after i gain a bunch of water weight. I lose for like a week to a week and a half an then it goes back up and stays up for another 2weeks. This time around i gained about 3 pounds in water weight and it freaks me out. I try to be careful about my salt already. This is my first period after my surgery though so i think that is part of it. I actually had another surgery done in my abdomen at the same time as gallbladder removal. Well hope everyone is still chugging along and i will try to check back in soon. Looks like things are slow right now.

Yes Cherry, things are really slow right now. I know the beginning of the school year sets up different schedules for many of us.

I seem to be losing weight on the Food Lovers plan. I have made a turkey meatloaf and vegetable/chopped turkey lasagna and I have the portions in the freezer. The food is tasty and even if I'm a little hungry I know I can eat in two to three hours-----either a snack or a meal. It's an interesting concept, but I'm not on it long enough to know if I will actually lose weight.

cherry, sorry about the TOM complications and wishing you well that things start to balance out. You've done so well. Amazing weight loss!!
:

Things good here. Just busy.
: to all,
Judy

Good Morning everyone - just a quick fly-bye to check in with everyone... I am the same weight as i was at my last weigh in so no change there.

Thank you all for you thoughts, prayers and support - my mothers death was unexpected for us but I think when all is said and done she was ready to go on and be with those that have gone before her, quiet honestly I think she was just plain worn out.

I will be back in a bit folks but for now I just need a bit of time. Will keep at the WW and pop in when I can.

Take care of your selves and I will post again in a bit.

Okay Turtles,
I am starting a new challenge that will bring us to Halloween. Are we up for this? Look for the new thread. We'll call it The Turtles Race to Halloween WI thread. How's that for a snappy title?

The Food Lovers Fat Loss plan is a nice, comfortable way to eat. Only problem is the weight isn't dropping off. The nice thing for me is that I'm not at my highest point from recent weeks, but I would like to lose. To do that I have to exercise and my hip is still giving me trouble. I'll work this out. In the meantime I saw my buddies at WW's mtg. this morning and I'm having a small group in for lunch next Wed. after our mtg. I love doing that.
We all potluck and it works out great.

See you on the Halloween Challenge WI thread.

Just a quick check in - the scale is up for me but that is due to getting no exercise at all and doing the mindless eating.

I am just for the Halloween Challenge though... thanks Judy
