carolyn, I wasn't always okay about not losing but I have had practice. I worked out for an hour 5 days a week, watched my calories but still nothing. Then I started 12 hour shifts and let my workouts slide, but I still watch my calories. I have found a good maintainence level for food so now I am going to be adding workouts back in and cutting back a little on food. My goal at this time is to lose 1 pound a month until my disney trip which is in 3 years. If I can make that I will be THRILLED!!!

Today I got in
W80oz
E20 minute pilates
E 1250 cals
D I didn't make it to the gym after work but I will get some time in with my weights at home before bed!

Hey Jeni,

I guess it was just you and I today. I started feeling less down on myself by noon today. I guess it was just that getting to 154 was so exhilarating because I hadn't been there for a long, long time and suddenly 5 more pounds down seemed so attainable...and then I gained. I got overly excited prematurely.

I remember 20 years ago when I strove to change my lifestyle, I lost 10 pounds in about a month. Mind you, I didn't cheat at all. Now I am finding it so hard to stay OP for a day at a time! But, I suppose it will have a more lasting effect if I have to figure out at this point in the game what it will take to change my lifestyle item by item. And then, of course, there are the NSV. I have upped my water intake to 2 litres a day consistently. I work out consistently. And with the eating, I guess I have to keep tweaking my goals because I don't find that as easy to be consistent with. I am sure it will become clear to me how to deal with my eating tomorrow if I will just give myself a chance to listen to my inner guide. I'll do that tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, I am off to Great Wolf Lodge in the morning and won't be back until Monday night. I will record my final weight when I return and then see you WEEDers in the Halloween thread.

Morning everyone! Is it me or is time just flying by? Seems I might be moving sooner than I thought. Going to call Tuesday to see if I can get a transfer and might be moving at the end of this month.

ok, so i was 201.5 in my weigh in this morning, but I drank last night and am totally dehydrated.

Since that is throwing my numbers wayy off I have decided to get rehydrated today and weigh in tomorrow morning instead, which makes sense because its labour day anyways.

Water intake hasn't been as good as when I'm at work - going to do something about that today.

I. LOVE. Great. Wolf. Lodge.

Your back better, jcat?

You sound excited about the move jasonslea - is the transfer a good thing then?

PS: I've been meaning to say that I'm not being coy or self conscious when I say that I CANNOT run at this weight - I just reallyreally cannot physically run/trot/jog right now (220's) . . . I had to run home that one day with Pup in the rain and my knees and shins felt it for days afterward! soooo - it'll be a few more lbs down b4 I contemplate the Y2k . . . C2K . . . whatever the name program that sounds like such a great plan many of you have Posted about. In the past, I was able to play a fairly good game of tennis around 180lbs - may be a good weight to start the program for me - w/o ending up injured, ya know?

Carolyn, I lost most of my weight in a quick spell, then it started coming off more slowly, not due to lack of exercise, but my diet would be good, the not good. Plus I got a new job in February so my entire schedule was thrown off. I went from working out 2 times a day (60 minutes each) to once a day, then as my schedule went from eight hours to twelve hours I just stopped going to the gym. SO it is my fault I haven't lost weight recently but I am back up for the challenge.

Aud, Yeah my back is better, thanks for asking but I am still babying it once I start to feel any pulling back there I back off on whatever I am doing.

Got in most of my weed today (again!!!)

W 32 oz
E 20 minutes
E 1400 cals
D getting in WEE!

See you all there!

W - 48 oz
E - B - smoothie, banana L - salad D - rice & lentil salad, snack - yogurt

to glitterlish for surpassing Goal . . . and to musicT for making Goal!!! WOW!!!!!

I'm headed for my Doc's Office (Urgent Care is open) to do my final w/i - otherwise wouldn't be able to w/i until tomorrow nite at work (my usual time and scale.) Don't think it should cause much of a diff, do you all think so? That's where I'll have to w/i for The Biggest Loser Challenge - which I'm really looking forward to glitter - Tx for inviting me!

Be Back In A Bit . . .

Ok Labor Day passed and I met my first challenge goal but not my second. My "I can probably do this" goal was to get down to 155 - I passed that by 6 pounds.

However, my bigger goal was to get down to 135, which I missed by 14. I've been working pretty hard at losing weight (I rarely ever even go over 1,500 calories anymore) and I exercise quite a bit, but the weight just doesn't want to budge at that clip. Oh well! I've heard the less overweight you are, the more difficult of a time you have getting it off.
