Talking Let's get out of the 300's - #2!

Hey guys!

I noticed we passed 500 posts in the last thread, so I figured I'd start up the new thread, so the mods can close up the old one.

Here's the old thread for reference: Older Thread

Let's get out of the 300's!!!!

Vortex_VVV- thank you!
Lovely-ha! i actually haven't had real vermont syrup in years, i usually don't eat things that require syrup. do you do WW at home or do you go to meetings? i just do it at home. the meetings never helped me.

I think my goals for July will be to keep going to the gym 3 days a week and walking with my neighbor 2 days a week and next week start doing weights 3 days a week and continue to log my food on ww online.

Ladies, I'm taking the new thread as a sign...I've weighed in at 299 for two days in a row (even with TOM unexpectedly showing up a week early), so I'm saying adios to you all, or rather au revoire (till we meet again on the 290s thread).

Thanks to you all for all the support and the love! I have loved this group!

I'm back! Okay so I don't know what that, a reaction to external stressors? Combined with a little hormonal imbalance or something? And next to no alone time to write anything? Anyhew even if its just for the next three days I should be more present... I heart long weekends!

I finally got up the nerve to step on a scale and it says 315 morning weight (last night in full jeans etc after all day it was 319)...

So I can breath a LITTLE. I mean I didn't gain that much during my little struggle. I still mostly ate in moderation compared to my old-old habits. But I couldn't really work up the energy to work out. I don't know if I have that yet but...

I am here, I am 15! lbs away from Two Town, and ready to care, again! Thanks girls for being here to come back to...

xoxo

Georgia congrats and bon voyage!

It has been a week. My brain has been swamped this week; we are thinking about moving, trying to find reliable childcare for my 1 year old, and this morning I get a call that my thyroid has.. well quit I guess, so they are quadrupling my meds.
But today was weigh in day, and nothing was gonna stop me from my date with my scale.
303.2 (hot dawg!) -7 more lbs this week (and if I can do it... really anyone can)
(for my first ten+ pounds lost!)

I had set my july goal at getting to 299.. I am wondering if I should go with it until I get there, or ammend it now. Any ideas?

Hope everyone is having a great week and seeing great progress!

Social - Wow! congratulations on the 10 lb loss, that is wonderful! I think you should leave it as a July goal until you get there. You can update your goals as needed for the end of the month.

Silent - welcome back, we all have little bobbles, its how we pick up and go on from that that shows we are making changes for life. You can do it!

Hey gang! Happy Canada Day

Haley - I'm not attending meetings at the moment, sadly they aren't convenient to get to for me right now. I actually liked them, but I'm doing alright while leaning heavily on 3FC and the WW site. It's all good =)

Lynn - You've been doing awesome!

Georgia - I know you're out of the 300's, but don't forget about checking in when you can! Now get your 290's on! *gives you the boot!*

Lost -

Silent - So glad to have you back You are SO CLOSE!

Social - Nice going! ^-^ July could still be your month to get to 299! I'd probably keep the goal, and then re-evaluate as you need. WTG!

Doing nicely myself. Enjoying some nice weather, windows open, air flowing through the apartment.

I've been trying an experiment that I heard about this week. I'm weighing myself daily and going to average it on Monday to see what the difference is in the average from what it shows on the scale on Monday. Just a curiosity! And who knows? It might be fun to compare averages to the weekly number I'm getting.

OK, I'm 24 pounds from getting under 300 after my weigh-in at the clinic today for my appointment. My ticker is wrong, but my profile on the left is correct. Gotta figure out how to fix my ticker.

Social: Hang on to your current goal! Then you can set a new one, definitely after you hit it. Awesome being so close!

Geo: Awesome job. I cannot wait to say what you just did! I don't know when I saw 299 last, if I ever saw it and didn't just keep on flying right past it. Congrats!!!

Do you know that bit that mimes some times do where they pretend they are stuck in an invisible box - this is like that! I want out! I want out of this 300+ pound box! I am getting so close - let me out!

Hey ladies, I'm back from a week and a half of traveling. Weight is the same as when I left. I'm going to be participating in a 100-day OP challenge beginning Tuesday, and I've been working on deciding exactly what OP will be. I've decided to set low, reasonable goals to get started, and adjust a little every 25 days. I sure hope I'll be leaving you all before I get through the first 25 days.

KK: Double-click on your ticker to change it--you'll need to remember the PIN you set up originally, though.

Congrats again to Geo.

Social: What a great loss. I'm with the others, though, I wouldn't suggest changing your July goal just yet. Slow downs do come to us all, and not always predictably...
