Adios to the 150s and 140s - 4
 
Hey Everyone! Our other thread got closed so I'm starting the new one.

I look forward every morning to touching base with you ladies so it definately needs to be done!

I weighed in at 150.2 this morning. Only .2 to go until I reach my March goal! :carrot: I am so excited to start working toward a new goal in a new month. April is gonna be awesome!! Hopefully Spring will finally show up and I can start running outside again! I am also very much looking forward to trying on my wedding dress and seeing if it fits me better now. Onward! :)

I'm 153 this morning still I was at 155 last week! So I'm happy about the 2 pound drop. I'm not surprised I dropped nothing after eating bread and butter (was craving carbs) and A&W french fries around 9pm last night, but at least theres not gain!

ERHR 03-29-2011 10:42 AM

146.6 lbs this morning! I have had the craziest month. Essentially no weight loss for three weeks and then 3+ lbs in a week. Before this month my loss was much steadier. I've been totally on my eating plan and working out a lot. I'm glad I stuck with it. Maybe another month or two and I'll be out of the 140s, barring another long stall.

Morning, ladies! Great job Jessica, Ally, MiZTaCCen and ERHR. Ally you are *so* close to your March goal...push it out!

Did 30DS last night again (feeling stronger doing it but still struggling with level 2) and finally felt less "blah" from the weekend and weighed in at 155.4 so my water weight gain is gone and a lil extra. I'll take it. :D

OMG I am so hungry today! I DO NOT want to eat oatmeal for lunch but I am trying not to spend money on eating lunch out ( I rarely do this, but when I'm feeling really hungry or wanting some variety I will) I think the fact that I am trying to force myself to resist it is making it worse!

AllyBride2011 03-29-2011 11:11 AM

LindsB - I definately have days like that too. I'm also trying to save money by not eating out and its sooo hard! Do you have any other safe snacks at work? The other day I bought some chocolate oatmeal. Thats pretty good. When I have to eat something that I don't want because I'd rather have something that tastes good I tell myself that I'm not eating this for me, I'm eating it only to fuel my body. Then I make sure to plan something better for dinner :)

LindsB 03-29-2011 12:58 PM

chocolate oatmeal?! Why do I not know about this?! I love oatmeal! Details please!

I ended up going to Jimmy John's with my mom (she paid ;) ) and had a turkey unwhich- delish!

MiZTaCCen 03-29-2011 01:06 PM

Linds - I know how you feel about the annoying hungry crap! I felt like that when I get close to my pay and am pretty much running out of food all I want to do is eat eat eat eat! It's so annoying!

AllyBride2011 03-30-2011 09:48 AM

I weighed in this morning at 151.0 (AGAIN) Grrrrr! There is no reason for a gain today. I ate right on track yesterday, tracked everything, went to the gym. I am super sore from my workouts this week... maybe I'm retaining water because of that? My plan is to drink a lot of water today, eat on plan with ww and take today off from exercising. I gotta let my muscles heal up.

The chocolate oatmeal I bought is called Lavish. It's instant but its chewier than other instant oatmeal. It's good... I wonder if they sell it around you.

MiZTaCCen 03-30-2011 09:53 AM

I'm still at 153 which is fine because I hardly drank any water at all yesterday and had a pop and a chocolate bar. haha, and two grill cheese sandwiches...mmmm

asweetchicagogirl1 03-30-2011 10:07 AM

Ally- I'm sure its water weight if you are sore. You'll get there.

MiZTaCCen- Grill cheese = yummy.

Didn't weigh myself this morning but feel good. I worked out last night despite not getting home till 7pm from work so I'm proud of myself for that. :)

tropica 03-30-2011 10:24 AM

This morning I'm at 151.8...I'm getting so depressed by this. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong! Plus, my life is super busy and stressful lately, so that's not helping my mood any. Therefore, I feel your pain Ally.

LindsB 03-30-2011 10:29 AM

Tropica- are you cal counting? Do you find yourself obsessing? I find that when I obsess over every little thing (diet/exercise related) my body really holds on to the pounds. Starting today I am changing my focus to eating healthy as much as possible and being sure to eat when I'm hungry and not eat when I'm not hungry and exercising as much as I can without putting too much pressure on myself--this is when I tend to do the best.

I have been seriously considering a plastic surgery procedure lately. I am forcing myself to lose atleast 10 more pounds before I REALLY decide. Rawr. Please don't judge me.

tropica 03-30-2011 10:50 AM

I do calorie count and I am totally obsessing about it! I'm obsessing about what I can do differently, what I've done in the past that worked/didn't work. I'm a bit of a scientific geek, so I'm trying to control certain variables in my weight loss journey and it's driving me crazy because I cannot pinpoint my problem. Plus, there's too many variables to control for.

For example, I was losing about 2lbs a week when I was eating between 800-1100 calories a day (I know, not healthy). Knowing this was not sustainable, I upped my calories to 1100-1500 a day. This is currently the range I am aiming for and trying really hard to hit at least 1200. However, I have also started up running, dance, and Zumba to get in some exercise. I'm keep worrying that I have ruined my metabolism from eating so little previously, I'm wondering if exercising is factoring in, I'm worrying my ratios of fat/carbs/protein is possibly wrong, this list goes on and on. I just want to see some progress!

LindsB: definitely not judging. This thought has occurred to me many times. If I wasn't a poor graduate student, I would probably think about it more seriously...maybe one day I will think about it more seriously. My big draw back with surgery is I feel like I should be comfortable with myself (at least when I get to my goal weight) and if I'm not...well, maybe there's something wrong with my mind and not so much with my body. I don't know... it is a big decision that requires a lot of careful consideration though.

LindsB 03-30-2011 11:20 AM

Tropica- I really want to do a non-invasive procedure that will help the cellulite on my legs. No matter how small I am, it will remain and I will always hate it. There are a few options out there that can help with this, but they cannot guaratee any results which is obviously a huge negative. I could not do liposuction because i'm a chicken.

Have you tried stopping all the obsessing?! I am JUST like you when it comes to being scientific about all of this, but I have found that my body and mind respond better when I back off so I'm going to give it a try. It can't hurt as long as I don't gain in my eyes!
