Good morning my pretties!

Another day is upon us--are you ready to make it count?

Ang~ we must have posted at the same time last night. That's a good question...I think a little of both for me. Sometimes I think I'm looking pretty darn good, other times I'm surprised when people comment on how 'skinny' I look--like they can't be talking about ME (of course I'm talking about my FIL and hubby, not random strangers--they tend to exaggerate my weight loss a bit ). Enjoy your day off hun! And do keep us posted on what the dr says k?

MountainChick~ well my guess is that your lbs decided to come stay with me! Seriously though, congratulations! Great job!!!

Gilly~ sounds like you had a fantastic day yesterday! WTG!

BKKchick~ I bet you're right. Switching from low carbing to reg/high carbing would definitely cause a temporary bump in the numbers. I'm sure it'll be gone in no time.

Mom~ Yeah, he brought home the tiniest little crappi--it was so wee! I can't believe he even brought it home! He ended up taking the boys fishing after he ate some dinner and he returned the little guy to the pond. Ry caught 2 fish--they weren't keepers though, but he had fun. Yes, we had a good time--it was too short a visit though. We might be going out there on Saturday, not sure yet. Me? A fitness junkie? Nah, I still don't live and breathe to workout yet. Yes, I'm working twice a day on my ST'ing days. I figured it might help crank up my weight loss since I've been stalled out for over a week, plus well, why not? Sorry about the layers--perhaps in a couple of weeks they'll grow out a bit and calm down. Mine are pretty crazy too--but using some of that smoothing serum stuff helps a bit.

shasha~ congrats on a great day! Keep up the great work hun!

Molly~ Happy Pre-Birthday! I'm sure you'll do great with the exercise and staying OP. However, it is your Birthday so there's nothing wrong with having a little cake--just don't go bananas! Welcome aboard and yes, this thread is very active!!

FSA~ First of all, I want to say congrats for checking in so often this month! I love seeing your posts everyday! Sounds like you had a great weekend! You turned down a lot of yummy stuff, that takes will power! Mmm, those greens sound yummy! I love a salad with lots of different greens! Speaking of which, I really need to start eating more salads! I've been slacking a bit.

Jewelie~ woo hoo! WTG on the run yesterday! That's awesome! Keep up the great work!!

Naz~ This is a great group of girls! Jump right in and make yourself comfy!

Phenomenal~ to you as well! Good luck on your August goals!!

Delphi~ Hey chickie! Well, by the time I read this my workout was done. I did do it on the treadmill (I will most of the time probably--although I should do it outside). I did my walking at 3.5-3.8 and my running at 6.1-6.2'ish, I didn't sweat nearly as much as my first workout and I was barely out of breath this time either. I wonder if it's because I've had a couple days off of running? I dunno. Anyway, it was a good workout. Darth Scale is still at it. I knew the day would come when my weight loss would slow down, but I was kind of hoping it would be after I hit my goal! Stupid scale! Ah well, it's all good--I'm not going to be derailed just because the scale is being dumb. Hey, as far as you having no one to talk to--you've got my email hun! I can at least entertain you with my ramblings from time to time during the day. Hee hee Whoa! Just read your post--so lemme get this straight--you did the workout and another 40 mins of walking after that? You ROCK!!! Man, you're making me feel like a slacker!

75togo~ The boards take a little bit to get used to, but I've found that the people here are super helpful if you run into a problem.

Well girlies--still not losing any of this danged water weight! In fact, I'm up to 151.8 today! It's madness I tell ya! However, I will not fret. I KNOW I'm eating OP and exercising so I KNOW it's not fat so it's all good! I'm going to only drink 64oz of water today (if I can keep myself from drinking more ) and see if that helps at all with the crazy retention.

I also need to figure out my calories. I've been eating around 1200-1250 a day and doing okay, but then I decided that maybe I needed more so I was shooting for 1300. I'm struggling to get that much in. Plus, I'm supposed to be doing the calorie shifting thing and I haven't yet. I dunno...this stall out has me all flustered

Heading out today to check the class assignments for the boys and then I think I might try tackling the mess in the basement !!! It's scary down there I tell ya!

Well ladies, I better get going. I hope everyone has a fantastic day and be sure to...

Drink Your Water!!!

You know, if you have control Sandye, then try an off plan day. Don't over indulge, but simply eat something that makes you feel like you are cheating. Just add something very high calorie, that you would normally stay away from. Your deficit won't be all that high that day, but it may help. On my high calorie days, I'll eat Grandma's Rice and Chicken bake. Man that stuff is delicious, but very high in calories...but it does the trick and isn't too bad for me.

Delphi~ Hmm...control...I've heard of it...not too sure I have it though. I might have to give it a go. I'll see if dropping my water a bit helps first--my fingers are like plump sausages I tell ya!

Morning

rcrough - so far so good, great planning around the weekends!

Ang - What an amazing day, I think I would have passed out after a walk that long, great for you guys. I haven't actually pondered that question in sometime but for me today, I definitely see the new me when I exercise to lose weight , I feel purposeful, powerful and strong but when I just just food to lose it, I found that my brain took a very long time to catch up to what I looked like.

Sandye - No worries, I find I'm in the same boat where I could cook the same thing we have had every week for the last three months or...I could find a new cookbook! DH is praying I find something soon, he hasn't complianed but my repitoire of healthy recipes is far shorter than my selection of super fattening ones! Oh that must have been worse than mine, they just looked at it and said, oh it'll heal, you can go home! Whoohoo on the 2nd workout! Too much water can flush out electrolytes and if you're imbalanced with those you can retain fluid, that's frustrating, geez

MountainChick - Hard work? WTG! Take credit for it you earned it!

Gillyhicks - sounds like a great day, wtg on combining the workout with studying!

BBKchick - sounds good, I know the same thing happens to me if I go a bit low in the carb department and then it's almost impossible to exercise!

LTTG
- You could always take one now They have timers on the new ones to avoid injury, lol.

FSA
- Yuppers that's the plan, family time and less exercise today! Oh I love spring mix too!

Delphi - LOL, I love my kitchen too, not gonna lie, it's my fav! I have to keep upgrading my workout clothes since they fall off easiest with all the pounding on the road aaannndd we don't want ppl to see my pants falling down. I finally can wear those microfiber, super wick the mositure away pants and there's sorta tight but not super personal kwim? I hear ya on those clothes, god knows I look like a bag lady or a hoochie. !6's are too big and 14's are muffiny. Today I have a mission, some new bras (back to my B cup finally!) new panties, LOL, and about 7 shirts or so, something to last through 2 weeks of vacation anyway. I've put my game face on as now I have to go into regular stores to shop and they have size 0 there. Woohoo on them panties

I jsut realized how late it was and I got to get HIIT in b/f we head to Edmonton in 45 minutes! But good scale news, another 0.8 down this am, yeha, great thing b/f a shopping day. Have a super day ladies!

Sandye ~ I hear ya. To be honest, with that rice and chicken bake, I have to portion it out for two meals and I throw the rest in the trash. It's wasteful, but if I don't, I'll eat the whole thing it's so good. But I reduced my water to, remember half your body weight in water is still a lot of water.

Tummy ~ Yeah, I need to find something. My problem with pants is that I like wearing them on my hips and not my waist..and my waist is what is getting smaller, not my hips. I like the low cut stuff, I just feel all blah and look blah in waist jeans..at least I do right now. I'm tall, so there's a whole lot of room in between my girls and erm...the chastity belt. So I don't know. I just refuse to buy any new pants, as I have 10,11's and 12's just waiting on me to fit into them..but they are all junior sizes..I don't think I even own a pair of jeans that are womens...then again, I'm completely oblivious to sizes. So dunno..have fun out today.

So I lost .4 of the .8 I gained. Hopefully I'll lose the rest plus more tomorrow.

Well, I gotta go milk the goat and a bunch of other stuff so I'll catch you guys later.

Delphi - I'm with you on that, no mom jeans, oh the horror I like them low waisted too, not butt cleavage low but right in the middle, where all the gush is, hence the muffin. I don't know if we have juniors up here, I assume we do but I've never gone over there, it's more just the sizes in "regular" and then all the sizes from 14 up also come in "plus" so you can have two 14's of different sizes b/c one's an R and ones a P. It's craziness! but regardless we're all looking better than we did in size whatevers, so here's to all us lovely ladies. Ok now I really have to go, lol.

Sandye - I don't know if this is an old wives tale or not but lemon slices in the water, honest, I do two cups a day like that (16 oz. each) and I never have any swollen limbs digits or otherwise, I here it's good for reducing cortisol hormone as well. But who knows its a nice change from regular water too even if it does nothing!

Goodmorning girls

HAPPY DAY 4! My goal for today is to make it a POP (perfectly on plan day) which we often refer to as OP a lot of the time and make sure I drink plenty of water. Hope we all have a happy and successful day!

naz, 75togo, + phenomenol woman and for those of you new to the board I'll do an edit to the list and add your goals (page 13). I will be reposting the list periodically (maybe every few pages or so). Nice to have you aboard .

naz, I hear and have seen a few pics regarding dubai. IT is beautiful! Glad you found us over here

75togo and phenomenal woman, oh it is fun! I think all of you girls will love it here. 75 and all, please feel free to ask any questions. Welcome to our team here

Jewel, congrats on a great OP day yesterday and on the run with DH

Delphiiiii, congrats on the new decade chicky!!!! Your really smoking. You look fantastic too, see you put another pic up there. Girl, wow! just wow! Look at you! your face, collar bones! etc. You look great. WIshing the little ones a great first day back at school Delphi, it seems early. How the time passed. We are here for you Delphi, Keep on shining sweety .

angel, I think it's a good idea taking a rest day to let the muscles rest a bit when we are sore like that. Hope you had a great time at the beach. I hope all goes well today regarding doc results, keep us posted. P.S - there has been a lot of talk on the boards regarding the issue you brought up yesterday. Some woman who lost quite a bit of weight somehow did not feel their new bodies yet and were basically psychologically still set to the original. They say it sometimes takes the brain time to catch up with the body (for some people, while others not). You might find some more info. with a search here. Anyhow, your doing great! keep up the good work .

Hi Jacque, hope your having a great day girl : ).

Sandye, ty for the kind words and the encouragement! Thanks chicky I'm working on things Right on regarding just keeping as you are with your exercising and eating healthy....you'll beat it and get that scale moving again. wtg on your workouts already. I'm the slacker chicky, I have yet to do mine! Gosh as long as I get it in. After logging out I will go do some swimming. I love starting my day with my exercise as it sets the course for the rest of the day. Okay girl, have a good one! chat soon : ).

Tummygirl, congratulations on the loss Have a great time shopping today! Looking forward to hearing about your shopping trip .

Hi shasha : ) and to all of our girls! Wishing everyone a great day. Let's keep truckin'. Okay, I'm going to go move my tail. I will catch up with you soon.

Oh yes, I wanted to mention our abbreviations here for those of you who may not be familiar with them. DH means dear husband, dd means dear daughter, ds means dear son. OP means our eating has been on plan and it has been on plan. TOM means that time of month. lol means laughter out loud. kwim means know what I mean, etc. Have a great day girls

Can I just say I am so glad Monday is over. I actually don't mind work all that much, once Monday is over. I think its just a sadness that I have to wait a whole 5 days for the weekend again. I have my eating all planned out. My friends from work are probably going to use these free taco coupons for Jack in the Box. I'm going to have to resisit the urge to join them. Workout wise, I want to do cardio today, but I know I must start weight training. Its dumb, but I always tell myself that once I lose x amount of weight I will start doing weights. I am really self consious doing them too. Do any of you gals struggle with doing weights too?
