Nella: I said DARK chocolate.

MsP: Congrats on the Tri! My weekend was tons of fun, tons of booze and tons of food. None of those things were in the kind of excess I used to indulge in, except maybe the fun, so rather than seeing a gain on my return (I didn't even bother trying to track food), I was down 1.8 pounds from my Sat. morning weigh in. I'm still waiting to get to 169.4, or whatever the magic number is that will put me in the "normal" BMI range that I was so close to hitting two and a half weeks ago, and haven't been able to change my ticker to reflect reality, lol.

I'll try to get to more personals tonight. I gotta crisis at work to go deal with. Sounds like you chicklets are all kickin' some June bootie! Keep it up, you're inspiring me!

Nella-I here ya loud and clear on the pre-TOM cravings. It hasn't hit yet, but it's probably right around the corner.

LouisaH-Isn't it nice when you're off plan, but can reflect and think to yourself, 'At least it's not nearly as much as I used to eat.'? It's some consolation to know we're making progress, ya know?

Today is DS's half birthday. I almost forgot about it and then yesterday I remembered. I know, I know....who celebrates half birthdays? Well, we do...and so we're going out to his fave place tonight for supper. It's the local pizza (and lots of other yummy stuff) buffet I've mentioned before (because that's where I commit 80% of my food sins!). LOL Anyway, I've gotten rid of most of my weekend excess only to thrown myself into more temptation. WOW! I am crazy!!! The idea on half birthdays is to let the 1/2 b-day person choose the meals for the day and treat them extra special. The kids sometimes get 1 present (if any). They just love the special treatment. So today I have made homemade buttermilk waffles for breakfast (I ate Kashi GoLean and an orange), Blue mac and cheese with a hot dog octopus for lunch (I had leftover stir fry and brown rice), and then supper I already mentioned. DS is in heaven! He loves this kind of stuff. It means WAY more to him than any gift. I've gotten lots of today which makes me feel super ! Hope everyone is enjoying a rewarding day as well!

hello every I know I have MIA for the past couple of months it has been so busy with trying to find a job and that now going well and then we had to travel back to Arkansas to get the rest of our things out of storage and make the 20 hour drive back to Ontario. I am so glad to be back home but we now have boxes everywhere and I have to figure out where to put everything. Feels like we just move in again and we have been in this house for a hear now LOL. As for the weight loss it has not gone up or down I am floating around 212-215 but I am back now and finally back to eating right and going to the gym so hopefully I will start feeling better again... I am going to need all your support I have miss you all so much and you all help me out soo much. Hope you all are doing well I have allot to catch up on. I am going to set a goal for this month to lose 5 lbs so wish me luck and I am going to start posting every morning again that seems to keep me on plan so much more. Chat with you all very soon... By the Friday was my 11th year anniversary

Default ok...

So we went to Chuck E Cheese's, and really.... their pizza is not that amazing....I guess people dont go there for the pizza anyway. However, I did have a few pieces... and the scale showed it but I should be ok. Otherwise, not really making my goal in exercise...I haven't been home lately.

The good news is that we bought a Wii and I bought the board and wii fit plus...so it oughta be a fun workout!

I also hope to get working soon, as doing something all day beats looking at my fridge all day

had an OP day today. i managed to resist the cookies at lunch time. and i finally got to get in my regular exercise. i'm so glad the stomach thing has passed.

there are a lot of things going on in my life right now and i'm starting to freak out a little. most of it is about money. i need more lol. thinking of getting a weekend job but the thought of cutting my time with my daughter even more is a lot to take in. not sure if i can do it.

Hopeful8: California is like Mecca for healthy food if you seek it out! You'll do fine, and bringing your exercise dvds is a great idea.

Onestar: are you feeling better yet? Too bad loss of appetite doesn't come without having to feel like crapola too, huh?

susiemartin: I hear that if you're standing up while you're sampling your cooking, there are no calories. (or was it that there are twice the calories? Hmmm.)

Mystical: welcome back! Congratulations for maintaining during your time away from here. Glad to hear the trip back to retrieve your stuff went well and that you're getting settled. People seem to come and go here, but there are always a few familiar friends, and plenty of new cheerleaders to help welcome you back in.

MsP: It's true. I do feel much better about how I eat even when I over do it. I was talking with my co-workers (who are all family) about what food snobs we've become. With the CSA biz we're in, we have a hard time eating any store bought or processed foods, and just can't bring ourselves to eat anything but "happy meat" (as we call it). So that makes the urge to binge on crap really easy to overcome. On the other hand, it's a pain in the butt many times too. I am repulsed by the thought of fast food and chain restaurants--although I understand Chipotle typically uses local, happy meat and real food, and if I think about what I'm probably eating in a place that doesn't say where it comes from, I kind of ruin it for myself. It makes me feel high maintenance...ew. The half birthday celebration sounds like it's as much for for you as for the kids--awesome!

NightAngel:Hopefully that WiiFit will become your new addiction, and I think you're right; I've never heard of people going to ChuckE Cheese for the pizza, it's always for the kid's party. You'll work that pizza off in no time with your new toy!

Two more busy days coming up with difficulty trying to eat low cal on plan. If there were more time to prep them at work, I could eat endless fresh veggies...those blasted nut butters and homemade preserves on tortillas sure are fast and delicious, dang it! Have a good Wednesday everyone.

Had a great last two days. Trying to lose the couple pounds I gained over the weekend. It's also TOM though so I know it's a lot of water retention as well. I've been hoarding water. Still a few pounds away from being overweight though.

Good for you. Yay.

I'm posting in here for accountability. I'm back on plan and lost my vacation gain. Now I'm shooting to get into the 120s. I saw 129 this morning, but I can't celebrate yet. Lately, I've been doing the lose/gain roller coaster. Today, I commit to eating on plan & getting some walking in.

Hey ladies! How's everyone doing today? Sounds like those who are reporting in have good news!
Last night's meal out did minimal damage since I came home and did a 70 min workout to balance the cals I took in. Today has been a wonderfully OP day and I feel satisfied with my progress this month. While not ideal, I'm not allowing one off plan meal turn into anything more than that. I knew this month would have it's off plan meals, more so at the end of the month (during vacation), but I wanted to be in control and not let food become the enemy. I feel great right now and don't want to mess up this feeling of being in the "zone". This next week is my week to get to my weight goal. I know I can do it!

mystical-Oh my goodness! It's SO good to hear from you!! I'm glad things are settling back down for you and that you maintained during your absence. I'll add you to the goal list and you be sure to keep us posted on your progress!

LouisaH-You food snob! LOL I wish I could be more of one. I am a little, but only with certain things.

onestar-I hope you're able to find a balance with work and family that still makes sure the bills get paid. That's a tough situation, but I know you'll make a good decision. You've started that habit with your health and I know it'll carry over to the rest of your life! Take good care of you; stress is horrible for weight loss!

NightAngel-Have you tried out your Wii yet? Let us know what you think.

susiemartin-Great job ignoring the cravings and their evil little voice that beckons us all to the calorie loaded junk. The more you ignore it, the quieter their voice gets. You'd think we'd learn to just keep saying "no", but I know I'm still learning! LOL

bama girl-That's so rewarding to see the scale is moving again, isn't it?! Way to keep on doing the work....it always pays off!

ap90-Nice job getting rid of the weekend weight, now moving on to those last few "obese" pounds. You got this!

Mellabella-You're making good progress! Keep it up and you'll easily make your monthly weight goal. How's the tracking coming? and the water?

motivated chickie-Woo Hoo on the 120's...just because you won't celebrate doesn't mean I can't for you!! LOL That's exciting! I can't wait to get there, but I'm taking the long and winding road. Also good job kissing the vacation weight good bye!

I can feel that I've gained a few pounds, but I don't know how much because I don't have a scale that will give me an accurate weight. The only scale around is the old spring scale which is very inaccurate. I'm at the point where I'm going to just buy myself a digital scale so that I can get back on track. That probably sounds silly, but weighing on a regular basis really helps me to stay on track.

My weekly weigh in is on Saturday so I will let you know how well I do with my first week back "nervous" Things are going well with my eating and the entire family made it to the gym last night, so glad to have DH, and both my sons joining in with us... It makes it so much more fun to have everyone there. I only managed to do 20 min on the treadmill and 15 min strength training before I started getting sick at my stomach.. Oh well guess that means my body is going to have to get use to the workouts all over again. Slow and steady wins the race right. Have a wonderful night everyone
