WooHoo!!! I am down 3 FULL POUNDS!!!! Finally a larger drop than just the
.5 I had been dealing with~but I would definetly take .5 loss over nothing! I am so excited!!! I am officially down 5 lbs. for the month! Twenty more pounds to my first mini-goal! Now I know drinking the extra water (and trips to the bathroom ) have been working! It is going to be easier to stay OP for the weekend with this loss!!
Peanuts Mom-congrats on your loss for the week! Keep it up!
How is everyone else doing????

I love mine. It has really motivated me to watch what I am eating and to move more. No more, naps with the kids. I know during that time I need to get up and get moving.

My favorite part is looking at how many calories I burned. Like yesterday was date night with DH. I knew that we would have a big meal so I did not each as much during the day and moved more so that I would have the calories I need to "spend" on dinner. I still ended up with a 1000 calorie deficit at the end of the day so I am still on path with my eating plan.

Height: 5ft8

Default Freaking Discouraged

I weighed myself this am and am up 1.4 I know I didn't gain a whole pound and a half in 234 hours, it's water, sodium, poo....etc. But for craps sake!

I was super busy at work yesterday and skipped lunch. I had a bag of baby carrots....probably a whole pound of carrots! I ate that instead as I hurried through a project that had to be done. It hit the spot at the moment but right before bedtime my skipping lunch came back to haunt me. I was truly hungry so instead of just drinking my tea....I had to have a piece of toast with jam...and that was so good I had to have another piece of toast with jam. This was the BIG pieces of really good sour dough bread that bf has to have. Mmmmm....slathered in butter and topped with cherry jelly. Ugh!!

I got on the scale this am thinking of how low my calories were yesterday and then when I saw the 1.4 increase I remembered the toast slip. I figure that was probably 400 calories of toast, butter and jelly! All in all, my calories over the whole day were still low...300 calorie breakfast, 200 calorie all carrot lunch, 400 calorie dinner and 400 calorie bedtime slip...only equals 1300 calories WAY lower than my 1800 calorie daily total but...not healthy, not clean, not planned. I also didn't drink much water yesterday....and ate at 10pm.

If I do reasonable, rational things: eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks...that are healthy and for the most part clean, drink my water I seem to lose just fine. If I futz it up, over eat, drink beer (even if it's in my calories), skip meals...my body holds onto every ounce and then some.

*kicking myself in the azz* I know what I need to do!!

Down 1 pound from yesterday! I've been OP for 3 days in a row. I know it may not seem like much, but it's major for me.

Congrats PeanutsMom & Saksn!! Love the big drops! Yay for you too Joni! Any loss is worth celebrating in my book.

Michelle, don't get discouraged. Just down the water and keep doing what you know you need to do. Your overall progress is way too awesome to get discouraged! Easier said than done, I know, I know...

As for me... Back down to what I was on... Tuesday? I think? Either way, same new low. Hooray!

back way up today, but I think it's from being sick with a bad cold and running a fever.

I'm going to keep tracking but I'm not going to worry too much until I'm feeling better and can see where I end up at once things get back to normal.

I am down 1.2 today at 232.6. Maybe just may be I will see 230.something by the end of the week.

PeanutsMom, I felt yucky yesterday and did not do much. While I found that my calorie burn for the day dropped but my intrest in food also dropped.

Everyone seems to be doing great! Keep it up, ladies!!!

So glad to see March going well for most of us.

I need some energy. LOL! I've hit a rut. I've hit a I'm-hanging-in-but-not-feeling-it rut. It's probably a good thing...the new energy had to wear off eventually and life had to set in.

I was amused this morning. I didn't think much about weight loss this weekend. I was on plan, I ran through the motions, but I wasn't thinking much about it. So I was shocked to see a loss of 1 lb this morning. It's like I think I can somehow will the scale to move. If I wasn't obsessing about it, it can't move, right? LOL! It's a good lesson for me. Being on plan and patience is all it takes. I do not have to be loving it for it to work. I just have to work the plan...

Eliana-Keep on plan!! that is what works!
I am down .6 today. I stayed on plan yesterday, and drank enough water. My husband went for a walk, but I was lazy and didn't go I decided one day a week I will give myself a break, but still stay on plan.
How was everyone this morning after the weekend??? That is the hardest time for me!

I had a wild day yesterday...very productive business wise, with alot of good things taking shape....simultaneously...by the end of the day, I needed to unwind and celebrate, so I had too much wine ... luckily the food wasn't a problem, but wine has calories (LOL)...so that won't be happening again any time soon.

I am back to my ticker weight, again. I know I hop around in a range. When I was maintaining last year I would use those ranges to tell myself if I needed to move more or if I was doing ok. Yet when I am trying to lose the ranges just be come frustrating.

I took 3 days off exercising to rest. It means I blew my March goals, but I was down both Sunday and Monday so I am not too sad. My muscles are getting really sore and I want to rest them so I can keep working out.
