I did it. I did it. I played in my first game of rugby. In terrible, terrible conditions (freezing rain). I was only on the pitch for 15 mins, but I had to step straight into a scrum (I'm in the front row).

I had to stand on a chair and slam a pint afterwards as a newbie. I had to play stupid drinking games. I got wicked drunk and danced with my teammates.

I am 42. I really should know better.

Everything hurts today.

Good morning all!

Even after a weekend of no exercise and eating out every meal (including Chicago pizza), I'm down--to 221.6. I recorded all my food in MFP and stayed close to my weight loss calorie goal, even with the pizza and a piece of grandma's birthday cake.

I'll be back to walking today.

I have a doctor's appointment this morning--and will hate being weighed on their scale, fully dressed.

|Have a great morning everyone.

You look stunning Misti!!!! Fantastic job and keep it up, you inspire me!!!


This weekend was pretty good and relaxing, my husband and I both needed it. I found out I have been underestimating my calorie intake, I am going to eventually invest in a food scale, but between that and too much sodium, I now know why I have been holding steady in the 230s for so long! So time to change that and make things happen. As far as morning exercise goes, I really have to push myself out of bed, but I took Lunar's advice and started taking my multivitamin before I get busy and it's certainly helping! Maybe it's just the placebo effect, but whatever works!

Well. The scale has been all over the place, but settled back into 227 for my official WI....not happy about it, since it hasn't moved DOWN, but it also hasn't moved UP and stayed there. I know, know, KNOW I have to be extra vigilant for this decade, unfortunately, the rest of my life doesn't go, "Whoa, let's hold off on these issues we're about to toss her, until she's under 220"...ppffttt. Would be nice, wouldn't it?

Back to eagle eyeing EVERYTHING and I think also, back to fitday, I find it's calorie counts to be entirely more accurate, although I'll miss the ease of scanning a barcode like LoseIt does. I just know fitday, just seems to work better for me! And it allows me to do it the day before so all I have to do is look at the meal and grab. LoseIt, won't let me do it in advance until the day of.

Have a great week ladies (and gents if you're lurking).

I'm having a jeans issue--some of my 20s are a bit too big, and some are a lot too big. The 18s don't fit, and I don't seem to have any "smaller 20s" (and what does this say about women's clothes that all of you know what I mean by "smaller 20s"?)

I think that when I got up to my current weight, I wore my smaller 20s out (thighs). So, I'm going to wash all my jeans tonight and then put darts in the waists so I can wear them (including a new pair of jeans and a new pair of pants that I never hemmed and am now smaller than).

I'm amazed that some of you in this decade are in 18s and 16s--but then, I'm short, so I guess it's fair :-) (and even if it's not, that's the way it is!)

Oh, and good news at the doctor--their scale was only 2 lbs over mine at home, which means my at-home scale is probably accurate (clothes). Also, my fasting blood glucose was 107. It has been as high as 300 (bad!) so this is really good news. He ran a bunch of blood tests so I'll know about everything else later this week.

I'm hoping to be out of here soon. (BTW, would you move down the first time you hit 219, or wait until it's "stable"?)

Misti - Wow! What a transformation, you look fantastic! Such an inspiration!

Welcome hk38 and fitwayoflife

Angihas2 - what a good attitude! I need to get into the frame of mind that anything that isn't a +lbs is a win, I get too easily frustrated at myself - I strive for perfection and seem to think that means I should be dropping 7lbs a week or something equally ambitious but anything that isn't going up IS still in the right direction

bethFromDayton - - Well done you needing to hem in your 20s! I know exactly what you mean, I'm in between sizes at the moment, depending on which store I go to! Very frustrating! My work clothes were getting a bit baggy so I went down a size, and they stop me breathing! So they are my motivation for the next couple of weeks! (hopefully sooner). Also, I think I'm gonna loiter here until I've hit 219 or less 2 weeks in a row! That way I won't feel like I'm returning with my head hung in shame!

Hi everyone,

It's a happy Monday! Down 3.8lbs this week so I should *fingers crossed* be a two-teener next week, God willing. New weight this morning was 221.8 at my doctors office. I was almost dancing I was so happy. I lost all of the water weight from my surgery and then some. So so happy! Need to lose .6lbs to meet my Valentine's challenge on Thursday so I am hoping I can accomplish that too.

Misti----you look amazing, thanks so much for sharing that thread with us. I will comment there too.

BethfromDayton---have you tried 18W instead of just regular 18s? I can't do regular 18s yet but the Ws fit and are getting baggy. It does totally depend on the brand though because my 20W Levis are tighter than my Fashion Bug ones. You'll get there, don't worry!! And for the record, when my scale says 219.9, I am OUTTA here lol. This stop feels like forever for me, I hope the 2-teens might move a little faster.

Hope you are all having a fabulous day! Welcome to the newbies!

Hey everyone!

219.6 this morning. Yes, 219.6. I got on the scale twice so I could see it again! I'm afraid to believe it the first time I see it, so I'll give it a few days and meanwhile, hang out in both forums!

Elvis- Any news yet?! I've been thinking about you!! (Also- I'm stoked for your weight loss this week, but any news?!)

Misti- AMAZING pictures! Not only have you shed inches- it literally looks like you were rewinding time. You are looking so wonderfully young!!

AlmostMe- I'm so glad you played your first rugby game! What a fabulous accomplishment! And I'm glad you got down with your wild self! You're living!

FitwayofLife- Welcome! Fabulous group here!

Pink Hurricane- I'm so glad you are liking your multi-vitamin! I recommend New Chapter! I hope getting up early to go to the gym becomes effortless! Do you get to see the sunrise when you are there? I always like that.

Ang- I've lost a bit, but I still think it's funny how so far our patterns seem to mimic eachother. I'm toying with the same pound this week. Catch up with me by Friday? I'm at 224.6 now.

beth- How did the washing of the jeans work? A bit tighter yet? And HOOORRRAAYYYYYY for new decade!! AWESOME!!

As for me, I'm in a bit of a holding pattern at work and I felt like I lost focus yesterday. I'm losing and gaining the same pound. I feel like a buoy bobbing in the water. Better then sinking, I suppose!

I have a rather large career fair that I am heading on Wednesday. I have about 36 employers coming and hundreds of students and community members. I'm in charge of doing everything... :: shrugs :: I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.

And then DH and I had a yucky tearful (me) conversation about my finances, my parents, our community, my ability to do housework, my crohn's...ugh. The whole thing was yucky and ugly. We are combining finances in March so that I can enjoy my birthday on the 22nd without the remorse and guilt of that transition over my head. I have debt...he has none. And we view finances very different.

I can see how life can all of a sudden drag you back out to sea easily. I feel like if I have one weak moment and stop at McDonalds that it will set me on an insulin roller coaster of cravings- and if you don't forcefully and consciously get off that ride- you'll float farther away from shore.

But regardless- I didn't have a weak moment yesterday and I'm not planning on having one today, especially since I checked in. I thought about you ladies yesterday even though I didn't check in. As I've said before- I like it here. I hope you do too.

Hi Everyone,

Here real quick to post my update in a couple places then I will be back later.

I got my results from the nurse last night, a day early...

NO CANCER FOUND!!!!

You have no idea how blessed I feel. The first 2 biopsies were cancer in July and November, this one was my last chance and it came back clear!!!

I am not cured, I am not out of the clear. I am just safe enough to try and get pregnant real quick before I will in fact have to have a hysterectomy.

I see the fertility specialist in about a month or so (after the meds get out of my system and I get back on some kind of lady schedule) and we go from there.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and well wishes. I have no doubt that losing my weight since the diagnosis and exercising my butt off literally helped me in this journey. I couldn't have done it without all of your help and motivating threads.

I will be back this afternoon for personals. *HUGS!!!*
