Just wanted to say a quick hello! I'm new here, just weighed in at 268, that makes 12lbs in 12 days! Hopefully I fly through here quick as well, but I'm hoping to get to know a few people along the way

Hey guys how is everyone?

The scale is finally starting to move back down! 256 today!

Would love to see the 230s by New Years.

My scale popped up about .5lbs today. I'm not sure why but I did have an unusual amount of salt yesterday and I wonder if that's it.

I haven't changed anything in my diet, although I know that even with constant planning and writing down there could be times when I off and sometimes this means less calories and sometimes it means more, so I'm just hoping that after a few days it drops back down.

I also have a bad habit of weighing in every two days. :/ I really need to adjust so I'm just weighing in on one day of the week.

I know I'm not doing anything wrong but when the scale gets touchy it's hard not to panic! But I'm not panicking. I know the scale can fluctuate, especially if you weigh in more than once per week.

So I'm still working for 249lb by Christmas! 8lbs. I can do it!

Congrats makebelieve!
Walrus-I don't have a scale at home, I weigh at work, but I'm with you, cause I weigh multiple times a shift sometimes! I couldn't imagine if I had a scale at home :/ I'd prob live on it!

Oh yeah, so on a side note, haven't weighed since Tuesday, so I'm excited to see what the scale says later!

I weighed in today - down 4.5 pounds to 258! I'm hoping the 250s fly by.

After weighing in two weeks ago at 249.8, my scale jumped back up and bounced around as high as 255! Today I am 251.2. Hopefully I get back down to the 240s soon!

I'm so impatient to get to 199!

I know they say focus on smaller goals but how can I when Onederland is looming in the distance?!

So anyways, I didn't weigh today but I've been within a few ounces of what my ticker says so I'm not gaining and even if it does go up there no ways it's fat because I'm eating exactly the same. No cheats, no nibbles, nothing.

That means that I'll probably see a whoosh here soon. I'm hoping it's a nice 2-3lb whoosh.

But I decided to weigh in again on Wednesday morning, so we'll see. Until them I'm just hanging out, sticking to my way of eating and enjoying myself.

I had a few rough days this week. I'm not sure why. Some days were great and others I would just feel like I'm not eating as much as I want to and having to tell myself it's the binge brain.

Today I'm doing super great. We're having 'Thanksgiving' style dinner this weekend because my parents don't celebrate the holidays but they do love the food. I've planned out a pretty delicious amount of turkey. I'm going to have cauliflower mash instead of mashed potatoes and I'm going to eat a relatively healthy dessert, which will be peanut butter mixed with honey and greek yogurt. It's quite tasty. I also put two jumbo marshmallows in my coffee earlier! It was great and I'm not even over carbs or calories.

I'm just trying to give myself a big pat on the back for not deciding today was going to be a 'cheat' day. There's no reason I can't just eat within my plan and still enjoy the food and the company.

It's a little tough because everyone else in that house walks around talking about how it's going to be a 'fat day' and acting like I'm crazy for even attempting to stay on plan, but it's not their fault, it's all in good fun and they're allowed to have that way of eating but in my mind I know I'd be upset if I went off plan. It wouldn't be worth it to me. So I suppose that's our difference in prerogative.

I'm still crossing my fingers to see 249lbs by Christmas. It's roughly 7.5lbs away though and if I don't get a whoosh here soon I don't know what's going to happen, but I wonder if my body is hanging on because I know my scale hung around 260 for a while.

That's awesome that you already have a plan! I'm sure you'll do just fine sticking to it, and under 250 for Christmas does not seem un realistic at all !!!

For me on the other hand, I'm 267 now, the scale hasn't stopped going down, but it's creeping now I'm cooking for thanksgiving, and it's a pretty big thing for my family. Huge turkey, rich buttery sides, sweet creamy heavy desserts...I'm aiming not to go over, but I tend to drink a little more when a lot of family are over, so if anything that will take me over. Last night I was just barely under my calories, and that was because I had gotten in some exercise!! So I'm going to try and lay low in the calorie department for the next few days so if nothing else I can be at or under my calories for the week.

I hope everyone has a great week. I will weigh in tomorrow, and probably Friday again, tomorrow will be a week from my 268 that put me in here
