40-Somethings January 2014 Chat
Here's to a great year of chatting! I closed out the December thread but there were a few great posts from this month already so I'm hoping you will go back and read...

sum I saw your weight in the weigh in thread. Great way to start the year! :carrot:

As I was entering my weight in my app this AM, I was a little flabbergasted that "this time" which should be the rest of my life, is coming up on 2 years in April already. Not too onerous, with the support of my DH and all my friends here! Here's to another 30 years, LOL

Heidi, I'm aiming for immortality, so let's do this forever!

newleaf123 01-04-2014 08:44 AM

Nah, when I hit 79, it's going to be skittles, jelly bellys, and twizzlers all the way!

Yay, new thread.

Heidi Thank you, I had a really good week :) I wish every week would bring 5 pound loss :D

I think I need to up my calories that I am eating, gasp. I am exercising so much that the weight seems to be just melting off. My whole body composition has changed in the past few weeks, I even look a lot trimmer. BUT, if I am burning 1200-1500 calories per day by exercising and only eating 1200 cal, that is a huge deficit and I will probably start feeling weak. -- It scares me to start eating more.

So today I am upping my calories by 200 and see how it goes.

You guys are so silly :lol:

Congrats Sum, I don't have the problem right now of too little calories! I did the first time around with SBD, not this time :D.

I just made myself egg foo young (without gravy!) for breakfast, and it is outrageously awesome. Whowoulddathunk I would like eggs without cheese?

On the diet front, I am doing well on my phase I (no grains or fruits), just too much of it. I need to drink more water, and I'm getting better about exercising again. I think my previous dog was my rock for running (she was the perfect running partner), and I just hadn't gotten to where I was without her. The new dog is too silly!

You had me at skittles.

Sum38 01-04-2014 11:09 AM

I want to look like her when I am 62 (and 72, and 82 because I think she will stay as a hot momma for ever), so no skittles for me at 79 :D


Mrs Snark 01-04-2014 12:10 PM

I will not look like her, ever. Ever.

So, I'll eat your share of the Skittles. While wearing my mumu. :)

newleaf123 01-04-2014 12:14 PM

Yeah, I'll never rock that look either, sadly... But she looks great!

Leeh 01-04-2014 12:27 PM

My kids told me they don't want me to be a skinny granny. :D
You can keep your skittles, though. Fruity candies don't do anything for me. Give me caramels or chocolate, please.

love2b150 01-04-2014 12:46 PM

LOL Sum me too on the five pound loss :) Good luck with your changes Sum :)

Tammy egg foo young :drool: I'm gonna have to look that up :) I hope you and the new pup get a routine going soon :hug:

Michelle, I have worn enough mumu's to last forever I never want to wear one again :D

Leeh caramels :drool: I've been drooling a lot today ;)

the boys are making pancakes :drool: here I go again, smh. I think I like the syrup more than anything :)

Sum, I wish I could drop 5 pounds in a week. I'd be happy to lose that in a month.

I have been inspired by you all to count calories for the first time ever and I think I'm generally maintaining on 1800 to 2000 (when I'm thin). I think the reason pregnancies catch up on me weight wise is that normally I exercise quite vigorously whereas I don't bother when pregnant. If I can't get that "runner's high" then I'm not interested.

I'm going to aim for 1800 or under and see how I go. After the baby's evening marathon feed I always hunt through the kitchen looking for food so I might limit it to one thing rather than about three.

About how many calories is everyone else eating? Sum, were you hungry on 1200?

kelijpa 01-04-2014 07:46 PM

I love egg foo young, sounds great for breakfast!

I'll take the jelly bellys at 79 :D

That is a great week Sum!
