I'm going to have to use my first freebie this week. I'm not sure what happened, I know I went off a little this weekend, but not to the extent that the scale is indicating. I did have a lot of salt, so I'm going to say it is water retention........I am definitely going to try that cranberry/lemon/dandelion stuff as soon as I get a chance.

Ok, I lost another lb, but that still puts me 0.5 over last week's weigh-in. Blast! I just gave myself a talking-to for next week and reassured myself that I'm at least heading downward again. So it's back to plan! I have a reception to attend the end of this month. I'm hoping to be at least 155 by then, ideally 152-153 so if I gain a couple of lbs (which WILL happen against my best intentions) it won't be THAT bad.

Good luck on weigh-in gals!!

I actually had a really great week food wise, except for some chips and salsa yesterday, so I'm not sure if I'm just retaining water from the salt, or if TOM is nearing (never sure on timing) or what is up...no loss at all. I do know I have to add in exercise, which I got bits and pieces of last week but nothing regularly scheduled...So this week I've got to get back on the treadmill and back to the pool. Plus I need to up my water; the cranberry drink sounds interesting, but just plain water is tasty enough for me...

Good luck on the weigh in everyone!!

Just popping in to say Hi to you all. Not much new with me. Trying my best to stay OP but I think the weekends are evil and should be banned!! I struggle so much when I'm at home as opposed to work where I can only eat what I bring. Oh well, I'll find my mojo and rock the weekends. I just hope I find it soon!!!

I like the idea of putting the scale away and only using measurements or how clothes fit to gauge my WL. But while I'm doing TBL challenge and have to WI so that is not an option right now. I'll just try not to dwell too much on the numbers for a while and see how that works for me.

In all honesty I'd like to lose 25 pounds by next October since I'm getting married on the 23rd. I figure in a year I can do that. Right???

Better get busy. Work is calling my name. Have a good Monday everyone. I'll try to check back in later in the day.

Had a smaller loss this week, but a loss none-the-less! I just saw that I was Red's Biggest Loser last week. That must mean a lot of people took it as a pass week. Also, it means I need to keep up my losses to help out the team! Let's start renewing our efforts and get back to those losses we're capable of!! We can do it, Red!

Another 0.4 loss for me- but at least it's going down & not up. Baby steps =, right?

Having a harder time staying on plan now that the weather is getting cooler. We had a dusting of snow this weekend. I'm drinking lots of hot tea to keep myself warm & full- but I'm craving carbs/hearty food like you wouldn't believe. I must be getting ready to hibernate!

I was really happy to see a 6lb. loss this morning as that means I not only got rid of what I gained last week, but also lost 3 more lbs.! Plus TOM is starting, so Iím pretty psyched! Happy Monday everyone! Letís kick some serious blue butt!!!

I just wake up, I had taken the day off from volanteering as I was going to run some errands but my body said sleep. I slept for almost 14 hours, I never do that, but I feel relaxed and pretty dang great. Wow I see everyone is doing great at the weigh ins, hey every ounce lost is an ounce that will never come back. Congrats to all my team mates!


Kiml1214: I am glad to hear it wasn't anything serious, and that you are feeling well. I love Jillian Michaels tips as well, I first heard her give that receipe on her radio show and then a friend said the how toos where in that interview I posted. 6lbs, I think you might be our biggest loser! Congrats!!!!

Hi All,
Sorry everyone, I have a one lb gain this week. It's been hard to eat right and get my exercise in lately, but our schedual has been changed with Jon home. We are all in celebration mode for the next few weeks, but I'm working on getting it under control.

I'm not going to be able to do personals right now, but I am reading all the posts and want you to know I'm sending good thoughts everyone's way.
I hope everyone has a great week
Bette K

It's so water retention, don't beat yourself up.

For everyone who is struggling this week, as Jillian has said on her radio show and on TBL the body freaks out sometimes when losing weight and will hold water, remember the week two curse they always go on about on the show,this is it. Plus some of you have TOM.

Hey team! Please remember to weigh-in before midnight (which is less than 45 minutes away). Some of you have yet to, so this is just a friendly reminder.

Also, things have been pretty busy for me, so if anyone wants to do the weekly challenge for the team, that would be great. Thanks!
