Way to go gutbegone!!

I just finished my workout but just see so sluggish today, sure its my monthly that is getting to me, water weight is really weighing me down. Today was the first time I cheated and I just feel horrible about it but I guess everyone is entitled to cheating at least once.

I will be out of touch for a bit while I am out of town on family vacation, but will check back with everyone when I return.

Keep up the good work ladies!

156.0 this morning.

I wish my weight would go down instead of up. It's TOM and I'm sure it's all water weight, but I'm still scared of the weight being up.

I'm frustrated with this, and I feel like I'm not going anywhere but instead going in circles with weight loss. I can't seem to get myself back into the low 150's no matter how hard I try.

Beila I know exactly how you feel!! I feel like I am a yo yo and being jerked around all the time with my weight. I decided while I am on my TOM I am not going to weigh myself because I am just going to be disappointed and discouraged.
I plan to continue to workout best I can, but my plans will be put to a huge halt Wednesday morning because we are going out of town till 4th.
So here is my plan, going to workout tomorrow then will pick back up on the 4th when we return. I will vow to you ladies while I am out of town I will enjoy myself but will make wise choices when I eat & drink.
I am still pushing for my goal to be in the 140s by end of July. Beila I know we can do it!

I'm not working out today. I'm just too tired, and I ate a lot. I ate 1340 cals. I don't know why I am so bloated. The TOM never makes me this bloated.

Here is my plan: tomorrow, I will workout before I have breakfast. This way, I can feel good all day, and have a flatter stomach and not eat so much. I'll just have tons of water in the morning.

Unhappy Feeling Down

Ok ladies, as I am washing clothes, packing, cleaning, trying to get to grocery before it storms, feed my baby, trying to fit in workout, etc I am feeling really down I weighed this morning and don't you know it I've gained another pound. Its partly my own fault for having chicken nuggets for lunch & partly because of my TOM. Oh, I could just sit here and cry!!
I am not looking forward to this trip & being around a group of people who can eat anything. I've been informed we are meeting at our friends mothers house to have pancakes nonetheless. I can't eat pancakes, bacon, biscuits, & gravy my husband said don't sit there and eat your meal bar you need to be polite. Well crap don't put me in that situation, you all can eat anything you want and never gain an ounce. I look at that food and gain 10lbs.
To top it off I tried on my bathing suits & I look awful, fat rolls & cheddar cheese thighs. To make things worse, my husband said he can't wait for me to lose the rest of my weight. He tried to back track what he said then got mad & said well there's no nice way to say it. I've cried for two days now
This is already starting off to be the worst vacation ever

Sorry to vent this out ladies but I don't have anyone I can talk to about this.

Mightywoman--is there something about your husband that he can change that he needs to? Like is he overweight, or has a belly? Give him a taste of his own medicine, tell him how you wish he's lose the belly or whatever it isn and make him feel insecure too. That way he will feel bad about it and know how you feel. That was rude of him, and he shouldn't have said that to you. I sympathize with you *hug*

As for the trip, don't eat any of the pancakes or the other food. Try to stay on plan. Tell everyone right off the bat, I am on this special diet and can't eat ____. They will understand. Me and my friends do this all the time. Some of them are already toned and skinny, but still say no to the unhealthy food. It's understandable. Your husband just is not helping you by telling you to eat something you don't want to. Why should you eat something if it isn't what you want to? ;ust to be polite? I am a vegetarian, and I would not want to eat a piece of steak someone made just to be polite. It's not in my diet plan. And so are the pancakes in your diet plan.

Don't cry anymore hun, it may be TOM. It was for me, and it sucks!! I binged last night because I feel like giving up. I probably gained more weight and will feel more bloated today. This sucks! And if I eat a big meal, my stomach sticks out big time! I have to eat very small meals today to avoid the stomach sticking out again, cause if it does stick out, I may go crazy and binge again!

This morning its better, it went down.

Anyways, try to stick with your meal bars and eat less while on vacay. When you get back, you'll be surprised at how much weight you lost. I usually lose weight on vacay because I eat less on purpose to save money and I know that all the activities are making me burn cals and keep me occupied and away from food. Don't give in to junk food or fast food.

Take care hon!

I hope it gets better mightywoman It's no fun to dread a vacation before it begins. It isn't rude to eat a meal bar instead of pancakes, gravy and all that stuff! I have found people are pretty understanding, though you might hear a few comments along the lines of - "you're on vacation, don't worry about," etc. which can be annoying. Don't let it get you down, you have made progress and ignore your husband's comment, men can be so stupid sometimes when it comes to sensitivity with weight loss stuff.

I am with you guys on the frustration, I, too, feel like I am just going in circles, gain a few, lose a few, the same stupid few. To be honest I haven't been super diligent in my efforts. I have kept up working out but my portions, although pretty healthy, have been getting larger. I think it is time to bust out the scale and measuring cups again! Other part of my problem is that I feel pretty happy at this weight, I know I could stand to lose probably 10-15 more but I don't have the motivation I did when I first started. That being said, I am going to work hard to get to my original WW goal of 145 and then work on maintaining. I've been maintaining 150-155 for a few months know so I am hoping the lessons I've learned here will work at 145.

I would like to be in the 140s by the end of July as well. Ideally, I would really like to get to 145 and finally hit my WW goal. I think that sounds reasonable, this looks like it is going to be a fairly slow month for me.

[QUOTE=Beila;3911499]This was me yesterday...


Beila that has been me the past two days!! I needed that smile and laugh, thank you.

I am with you ladies, lets get out of here by end of July. WE can do it.

I won't have a computer while out of town, so as soon as I get back in town I will check in with you all.

On a good note, I finally got shopping finished up and also worked out. I felt better after I worked out, however it was slow go at first.

Also, there is another group that is starting up on July 4. I joined it as well but this is going to be my main go to daily.

Lets hold each other accountable, do our best & support each other. I just know we can do it!!

150.5 today, woo hoo! I will see if I can maintain the loss until weigh in Friday. Did pilates last night and will be doing it tomorrow as well. We are trying to convince our instructor to have class on Monday, don't know if she will since it is the 4th. Just need to get my diet back in shape, I have been indulging a little too much, I know with some tweaking I can start dropping again.
