Good morning ladies
I'm up and ready for a good week.

I've got lots of canning planned for this week and plenty other work to catch up on.
Hope everyone has a fantastic Monday

That's what I'm thinking!!! By then for me it will have been almost a year since I started my journey and if I am able to keep the weight off through the holidays, then I won't be so concerned with gaining any back. I know I will need to stop drinking or at least cut back alot plus my BF will have to be onboard...he's a big smoker and drinker too!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!! I am already psyching myself up for it!!!

But I totally understand we all have our things we want to fix, loving the goals btw, I was wondering what you were gonna do now that the weights mostly finished.
There still are some things that jiggle on my body, so I really want to tone those areas. I think I will always worry to some extent about the number on the scale, but mostly, if my clothes fit, I will be happy. I will need to just stay focused on the new lifestyle and being healthy and happy!!!

I started measuring in May although I had forgotten to measure my arms the first month. So far a total of 19" gone!!!

  • May - 7"
  • June - 6.5"
  • July - 5.5"

I have lost posts before too and I found that if I click to another page, that's when I lose them. If you are trying to go back and read posts in another page, I suggest opening the page in a new window or tab. Hope that helps!!!

Hey girls! Confessions time...I ate enough yesterday to feed a small 3rd world nation and felt like crap afterward. My anniversary turned painful. I cannot eat near the amount I used to be able to and get away with it (had 2 bowls of soup and split an entree with DH), which is good, I guess. But, why did I do that?! I am SO over it and ate an orange and a hard boiled egg for breakfast today. Time to cleanse!!!!

Mystical - that sounds like a wonderful plan with ds, I know that it's such a fine line between having them eat certain things to stay healthy and not restrciting them so they rebel. My heart would break knowing my dd had to go through life heavy as I have been. Maybe even make yourself a running goal, like when you reach ___ weight you'll start (or when you're not going pass out) and then just give it a go, you never know what you can do until you try. Enjoy the long weekend, it's beautiful out west as well.

rcrough - Welcome to the board!

Ang - that's so far, you're determined! I like it! You're gonna have one full bedroom, you need 50lbs in there already.

CMo4 - I'll see how the hoisting works and let you know, I've had other success with halter style dresses so heres hoping. Oh ewww, mine too! I had mine pop open at a baseball game when dd was three or four weeks old, she was on my lap and I thought she peed on my pants, so yes, didn't heal right, LOL, no bikini. I do remember the doctor saying as she was stitching, we'll make it nice and low so you can still where a bikini. Now granted, I don't remember this but dh said I laughed histarically for like a full minute when she said this and everyone kind of stared at me, the doctor chalked it up to the drugs but dh said he knew exactly what it was about. Good boy, knows me all too well. Sweet NSV! Who's that sexy lady getting Sandye's mail, oh ya, it's Sandye!!

Ruth - Down a pound with Chinese food?!? You are incredible, I have never met chinese food that didn't bloat the daylights out of me, must have been some great food choices!

BKKChick - Congrats on the run! Great job and wow you guys go back to school early!

LTTG - I agree, chatterbox is a great quality! And I'm sure they were witty as all get out, I know the ones I lost were too

MARS - Never to late! Welcome aboard and great to have you.

Merose - Glad you stopped yourself, coming here does that for me too! Stopping yourself is the hardest part, good for you.

Delphi - enjoy getting those beautiful boys set for school and so nice peace and quiet for you soon too. I think information is totally the key, you must be at a 3lb deficit by now, I'm hanging out with a 2lb one or so and it's just comforting to know that it will let go and we've done all we can.

ernurse - WTG on the water, it's funny when you can hear it sloshing around in there. I found it definitely affects the appetite at the beginning but soon enough you'll be eating like a champ again (and not peeing every five minutes)

Susie - oh I love canning! have fun for the rest of us I don't have a garden here yet Hope you're sheep and you are doing good.

Jacque - I must agree that I do think the scale number is important, as an indicator anyway of whether we're going in the right direction or not. If I didn't step on the scale I could have 10 extra pounds b/f the clothes get snug and I'd rather see it far b/f then!

Pucedaisy - Sweet! 140's congrats! congrats! Enjoy that wine club, I used to have one of those, we used the books as coasters!

Khunter - have an awesome day at work!

MsP - That sounds very uncomfortable, clean it out and run it out and hope you feel better soon. I'm sure the bloatys will be gone in no time.

W2b140 - That sounds like a game show, awesome! Congrats on 4.5 pounds that's fantastic.

As for little old me, that mystery pound left today so back to my 185. I was looking at my weights too and it looks like I pretty consistently lose for 4-6 days then gain a bit (granted usually only 0.2 not 0.8 like yesterday) for one day then lose again for 4-6. It's been that way for about a month and a half, it's odd I didn't see it before, interesting.

Running is finished, great morning, cold with NO bugs! Going to go encounter some lawn mowing and enjoy the beautiful day! Dh is off tuesday and wednesday so I won't have tons of time to mow then. We're probably heading into Edmonton tomorrow and dh wants to hit the beach on Wednesday, that boy loves the beach, but then again when I have a six pack I might like the beach more too!

Have a great day ladies.

Hi! I'm new to this site and would love to join in on the August challenge. I'm currently at 255 and hope to be 248 by the end of this month. I have this annual gathering the 3rd weekend of August and I'm hoping this will help keep me in check so I don't overeat/drink. Good luck to everyone.

hi chickiessssssssssss Good morning. We are already on day 3. Hope you all had a great weekend. It isn't always easy to start a journey/new month on a weekend but congrats to those of you who did well and to those of you just sticking with it...the weekend is behind us now and off to a new day!

rcrough, mars540, and shahsa17a and for those of you new to the site. I added you to the list which I will post after this post.

I have to get going and get my exercise in so I will bbl. Congrats on the losses, wtg on getting rid of that lb. tummygirl, great nsv sandye : ), wishing you all a great new day girls. Catch up with you later on.

Delphi + I think you already know, I went cold turkey Jan 1. I was also here on the boards at that time. It was really tough at first because I was not only trying to not gain weight but to lose weight too. I did go on to lose weight! That same very day I also started exercising 5-6 hrs. a wk. to make up for the metab. slow down and for all the benefits of course. I have a money jar girls...sev. hundred dollars in it already. I suggest doing the same when you quit...put your cigarette money in there. The extra support is a god send. I was on the boards here and boy oh boy those first few months I would come in here and have tantrums! I would burst out into tears a lot! lol anyhow MsP and the chicks helpe me out and helped keep me going..........the girls were a god send. It's a great idea to do it while you have each other here. It's tough in the begininig but it gets easier and easier with time, I dont even think about it anymore. I just want to say also that if I can do gals sure can! Your dynamite chickies, you can do anythingyou set your minds too

MsP....have a great day...I know you will make it a great day and feel so much better tomorrow ....if not already

oops,, there I go again I will catch up with you all later.

Wellll... I knew yesterday was going to be impossible and it was.
Started out the morning making breakfast sandwiches for DH and I.. mine made me feel icky (so much for all my favorite naughty foods, most make me feel like crap after) so I made a smoothie for myself. Then off to my sister's to take her out for her birthday, naturally she wanted to go to some small Japanese restaurant where I couldn't get calorie counts.
Ate deep fried spring rolls, soup, a bit of salad, teriakyi chicken with rice and noodles and a couple bites of tiramisu they brought her for it being her birthday. Then a piece of birthday cake.
On a good note: I didn't get hungry the rest of the day... so I didn't eat anything for dinner.... so there was some good and some bad and overall I'm not too bothered about it. I doubt I did a ton of damage, so I'm happy.
Hope everyone's August is going well!

Hi All!

Tummy: Actually I was down yesterday morning before I ate the chinese food. This morning I'm back up a .8, grrrrr! I'm vowing to not eat chinese for a while, I had it twice within a weeks time! I know that I did not eat enough to make me gain almost a pound though so I think as long as I do well today the weight will be gone tomorrow, hopefully.

I agree about the scale, I have to keep tabs on what going on or else it can get out of hand before I realize it. I generally weigh everyday, unless I've ate way too much the day before and I just don't want to face up to it. But lately I've been weighing even after I've eaten too much and sometimes the damage is not as bad as I think its going to be.

Hope you all have a great day!
