I added the newest challenge members to the goal list!

Today was a good OP day, but after logging my food on fitday I found I didn't get my target amount of fiber. It's the first day I've logged that I've been low on fiber...gotta watch that! More in the a.m. .....good night all!

Hey! We are both 5 8 and pretty close in goals! I am probably a bit heavier than you at 179 and I think I have to weigh circa 150 to usually wear a size 8 but it varies. What do you weigh? Do you work out or..?? What is p90x?

Can I be on the goal list? I'd love to weigh 169 by May 15. I hope that is not too lofty a goal. 145-165 is my usual acceptable weight range. Just 163, I guess by end of May but 159 would be better.

Today is a better day. I weighed in at 154.6 finally the scale goddess smiled on me. Back where I started. I have until the 17th to loose a few more. I am going hiking this afternoon. Rain is forecasted for tomorrow so hiking the trail after that will be a muddy proposition after that. I am excited I can go this afternoon. Then I can finish the hike tonight after dinner. YEAH.

Hope everyone is having a good OP day. Let ya all know how the adventure goes.

Another fine morning here on 3FC and I hope you all are doing well. If not, today is a new day and you can make another go of it!

I'm on On Plan (OP) day #3 of 7 and feeling great. My muscles are still sore from Tuesday, but I need to get my run in this afternoon so I'll be taking some Aleve and hoping for the best. This morning I'm off to grocery shop and run errands, so I don't have time for personals, but just wanted to wish everyone a happy, healthy day! Hopefully I can pop in later, if time permits.

Good morning all I'm checking in.

I feel much better today - headache is all gone. Something about removing white sugar from my diet can really set me off. I think it has to do with fluctuating insulin levels.

My plans for the day are a trip to the grocery store for fresh fruit & veggies,an OA meeting, a walk and to work on my wardrobe.

I'm ashamed to admit that I've gained so much weight, so fast this past winter, that I have no decent clothes to wear.

I have been walking around in denial looking like a mess.

I'm starting a wardrobe make over from the inside out. Tuesday I went bra shopping and today I'm going through my sewing patterns and do some planning.

I've got some nice linen fabric for tops & bottoms.
I have to decide what styles will work while I lose weight.

I hate elastic waistbands and drawstrings but I'm thinking they might be sensible and take me through 25lb. loses.

For tops I'm thinking items without strong neckline, shoulder or bust line elements.
I welcome any suggestions for a weight loss wardrobe.

Hope everyone has a great day

This is looking like a good morning for everyone! No time for personals but I had to check in and say the scale surprised me with 173.8 this morning, down 1.2 from yesterday and down 4 pounds since Monday! Huh? TOM is here and although it feels like he's brought much baggage, he must have invested in the lightweight kind. I'll take it.

Still calorie counting, still at 189 >.< I blame the stress of finals week, I haven't been able to do much other than sit in front of a computer.

Yesterday I was super low on calories, because I was in and out of meetings all day, and they kept running late. My calorie counter had me at 865 for the entire day, and because I Was so busy/stressed I never even really felt hungry.

Oh well, last final is Monday evening, just have to suck it up until then.

226.8 this morning, back to where I was a week ago. AF seems like she's packing up her bags, so I hope to see a consistent downward movement now. My back is still feeling great. I still feel a little twinge if I'm not careful when I twist (which I'm trying not to do) and a little bit of sciatic pain down my leg at times, but so much better than it's been for months.

On plan all week so far. Had sushi for lunch for the first time in months. It was good, but I felt overloaded eating 12 pieces. Then I remember in the old days, I had to have a minimum of 24 pieces and then have ice cream afterward.

Drank 2 beers last night, which was reflected on the scale which said I was down 1.5 pounds to 133.5. It's amazing how dehydrating alcohol is.

Tonight, I must go on a 4 mile run even though it's uncomfortably hot out. I need to stop complaining about exercise in the heat. July is right around the corner. Might as well get used to it.

Msp: I’m putting more attention to my fiber intake since last week. Fiber is so important and before I started to lose weight I had never put attention to eat. Yesterday, I baked pumpkin all bran muffins (I get the recipe from this community). They fit great on my eating plan, and they may be available for the next day of the OP challenge.


Susiemartin: The same happened to me on February, I have gained so much weight that I could not find summer clothes for a trip to Costa Rica. I think that it plus my inability to enjoy a trip to a volcano were responsible for my decision to find a solution to my weight problems. That’s when I find this site.

LouisaH: for those 4!!!

Good afternoon all, I got my gym workout in today and just finished L1D8 of 30DS. I was pleasantly surprised that my husband decided to join me today. I wasn't expecting much for his workout, he's had 12 surgeries on his hips and legs because of cancer and 1 leg is quite a bit shorter than the other, but he stuck through it all and did as much as he could so I'm very very proud of him. I'm about to head out to work in a few hours so I just wanted to check in and tell everyone to enjoy this beautiful day and have a wonderful day of working out.
