I can not believe it's May!!
I am 30lbs heavier than last May!
Just found out we have a big wedding next May. My niece is getting married. It will be a big fancy affair. I plan to be under 200 lbs by then. I always work best under pressure!

Food has been great so far today and I have resisted the candy again. I thinking Tom must be lurking about for me to crave sweets.

Dinner tonight will be fish and green beans.

I didn't go back to see where I was last May but I know two years ago I was 28 lbs lighter - we spent our 20th anniversary in the Bahamas - I remember feeling so bad about my weight now I'm even heavier.

Annie - I read your post about the benefit of exercise and it really struck a chord with me. I truly feel much better emotionally when I swim - does wonders for my flexibility and state of mind. I will hit the pool this weekend!

Made the mistake of stepping on the scale this morning. Will wait for tomorrow for official WI but looks like I will find what I lost last week.

Let's do this!

Weigh in today -3 lbs. I am happy in fact thrilled. I am down 7 lbs in 3 wks.

I drug out the old mini tramp and did 10 min on it. I know that isn't much but I was shooting for 5 and was able to double it. I am sore a bit this morning. If I could do 20 min a day I lose inches fast.
I will get outside today with my kids and enjoy the warmer weather.
I have a plan in place for the weekend if we eat out.

I showed a .25 lb loss this week. Must keep the weekend reigned in to show better results next week. Lots of errands done this morning including getting two pups their summer haircuts. Need to work outside on the glorious day but may settle for a nap.

Let's do this!

Hi Everyone,

I've managed to behave myself the past few days.

Back to the doctor tomorrow for my official weigh in, but my scales at home indicate a loss.

I'm pleased that I am now exercising again on a regular basis - even if it's only for 15 mins on the walking machine.

Have some marking to do this weekend, so will keep me in the chair instead of mobile. So, must remember to make an effort to walk around.

I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend.

Good job Lucy.

I'm counting yesterday as a success - not POP but a success with good choices for our anniversary dinner. Most of our meal was brought home after we filled up on salad.

Lots of errands today including some me time with a hair cut and color.

Let's do this!

Still battling with portion size and junk food. Hope I can get it all back together soon. I'm sick of whining about stuff I CAN do something about.

Great day Friday and sat. Today I overdid it at lunch.

dgramie 05-05-2014 06:38 AM

Scales are up 2lbs but a day of pushing water should fix that. I am hoping to plant my garden today. I also have some stuff to plant in my flower beds.

Hi all. I gave up for a while. I'm back.

Last May I weighed about what I do now. I've been basically maintaining for over a year. It's time to change that.

dgramie 05-06-2014 07:31 AM

Scales are back down. I spent a lot of time working on my garden yesterday. I planted a knockout rose and pulled plants that were out of control. I'm counting it as an hour of exercise. I will spend that again today or more.

Today is hubby's bday and I plan to make him a peach cobbler instead of a cake or pie. They are easy and don't tempt me. Lol

Angela I had missed you!!

Hi Debbie, hope DH has a good day.

Still struggling a little here but I will try to keep posting. I know it helps me keep my head on straight.

dgramie 05-07-2014 07:40 AM

I had a great day yesterday. I ate half of the tbone I grilled for hubby's bday. I worked in the garden and it feels so good! My body is sore today!i even mowed the yard. Garden is planted! Flower beds are next!
Scales are being nice!! Looking forward to weighing Friday!

Vortex_VVV 05-07-2014 02:25 PM

WTG Debbie! Enjoy those flower beds.

Yesterday was better for me than Monday, but I still didn't manage to stick entirely to plan.

Today is going fine so far.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 10:22 AM.
