Been busy and haven't gooten on here for a couple days. Quick update...I've stalled, but it's all me. Went to a wedding tonight and ate too much. Thankfully the shin is a little less painful now, so I can manage some yardwork without hurting too badly. There's swelling just above my ankle where the pain in centered. It's definitely either severe shin splints or a stress fracture. Either way, running is basically out for a month or 2. I do have some alternatives, many of which LouisaH mentioned. It's tough to transition for me since I'm so used to just getting out and running. That will be the project this week...making a new routine. Gotta get to bed now...I'm fading fast!

I'm having a great weekend, but I might have overdone the exercise yesterday and I'm really sore today. I've been pulling clothes out of my closet and trying them on (just like Marniadec was, maybe there is something in the air!) and I'm so thrilled to find so many of them fit now! Still sneaking up on the 50 pounds lost mark, I was hoping to get there this week, but the ways of the scale are mysterious!

mystical - If I remember correctly, Thanksgiving is tomorrow for you! Hang in there! You can do it!

dollypie - Congrats on Four days (probably FIVE by the time you read this!)! That's wonderful! I hope you made it through the festival alright! You're so close to getting that reward pedicure!

LouisaH - Hope you enjoyed Octoberfest! I haven't been to one of those in forever, I should see if any are in my area, it sounds like fun! I'm not a huge beer fan, so the alcohol wouldn't be my problem, all that icky fair food would be my problem. I loved that kind of junk growing - give me a greasy sausage sandwich and a funnel cake and I was in heaven, lol.

VickieLou - Congrats on being 4.2 pounds down, you're doing great!

candy love - Welcome! Nice job setting your goals! I have a time when the "kitchen is closed" also, definitely helps me!

WinterJinx - Hope you got all your arms and legs back onto the wagon and are having a great, on-plan weekend! TOM always makes it harder! I'm sure you hit your "5 Time To The Gym" goal for the week!

julie99s - I hope your "official" weigh-in is good today! And I hope your foot is recovering so you can rejoin your zumba and bosu classess!

Marniadec - Congrats on the 2 pound loss and the triumph over the clothes ! That is so awesome! I hope you enjoy your friend's birthday and are able to get right back on track afterwards, you can do it!

susiemartin - hang in there, you can pull it all together with planning and exercise! I hope your weekend is going well and you are feeling back in the grooooove!

MsP - Anyone who can run a marathon can come up with a good alternate plan for exercise, so make it happen Ms Thing! I know that injury must be frustrating, but a bunch of cross-training will probably be great for your body and the couple of months of recuperation will fly by!

Rosinante
- Welcome!

Official weigh in day... 229
Down 3 from last week and in the 220s now. Yay! I'm glad it's coming off because I struggled last month.

Just a quickie today. I'm exhausted, didn't sleep much last night. I'll be back later for personals

Hi all-Sadness alert-this is not about weight loss so you may not want to read it. It has been a very rough week. Jingle had lung cancer and each day was more difficult than the previous. I put him down yesterday. susiemartin-there was a line in your blog entry that sustained me through the agony of last week-eventually you have to say good bye to everything. Thanks for that. Thanks to all of you for your kind words this week. This is a very supportive thread. You all kind of amaze me. Jingle was one of those adorable, sweet gentle dogs that lived to play and be petted. I loved him tremendously and will always miss him but I am grateful and privileged to have enjoyed his company for our 13 years together.

Okay-so in an effort to get back to everyday life- other stuff happened this week. I had a job interview on Thursday and a job offer on Friday. I start work on Tuesday. I am a bit disconcerted about it. I have had five months off work. The only downside was lack of funds and looking for a job. Now it is back to the rat race. Really I am happy but a part of me is going to miss the freedom of not working. The other part is going to be ecstatic about that paycheck! I hope it goes well. My last job was pretty stressful due to the boss and the economy. The people I interviewed with seem wonderful so hopefully that will be the case.

Two huge events in one week. Somehow I pretty much maintained. I was just putting one foot in front of the other all week so I ate the way I usually do except for some extra alcohol last Sunday and yesterday. I guess next week will be crazy too with adjusting to a new schedule. I have a long commute so I don't know what to do about exercise. Day at a time. I will try to get back to personals this week but please forgive me if it takes some time for me to get in the new groove. I am still reading most of the posts and am very pleased to read about your successes and hard work.

My Michelle - That's a good idea, think I may keep some bottled water on me or around so that I have no excuse to go near the kitchen Oh and congrats on the clothes that's amazingggg Everyone is such an inspiration to me here I can't wait till I can fit into (the majority) of clothes I have stuck at the back of my wardrobe

TERAPET - I'm so sorry for your loss it must be so difficult Though I'm so pleased for you with the new job, well done I hope you love it there

julie99s - 220's!!!! I'm so proud that's such a great acheivement!!!

susiemartin - I like to plan ahead too it makes my day so much easier, I always fall off track if I don't plan ahead, good luck with your next weigh in hun I'm sure you'll do brilliantly!!!!!

Ms Perception - I'm so sorry you're hurt just now, it's good it's healing now though, hope you're back as new soon

Rosinante & lindalee9 - Welcomeee I'm just starting here on this thread to it's really helping me stick to my goals Love it here


Todays not been too bad, I had a chippy tea with the parents, totally unhealthy but I've stuck to under 1,300cals, had 2 cans of diet coke but feeling sick after the chippy tea so I'ma stick to water for the rest of the day, tried exercising for the first time in foreverrrrr yesterday and could barely do 10minutes so I'm going to just have to stick to it and hope for the best, going to weigh myself every Friday, I became a bit of a weighing junkie a while back and it was so off putting seeing the scale jump up and down all the time so I'm sticking to once a week Hope everyones day is going well, I'll write again tomorrow

Red face The Party Is So Over

Check In Time

Ugh....I've been binging for about 3 days. I feel really fat & thirsty from all the carbs I've eaten.
Heaven only knows what I'll weigh tomorrow morning. I'm dreading the scale.
I wanted to check in here as soon as my binge was over and recommit to weight loss. Nothing like a dose of reality.

My Michelle - I'm going to take a clue from you and start counting binge free days.

I reposted the list to include our newest joiners. Today was busy and I'm still not eating right, but tomorrow I will plan out the week and will stick to plan so I can see some results this month, for heaven's sake!!! I'm too tired to do anything tonight. My eyes are dry and I just need a really good night's sleep.

TERAPET-I'm so sorry Jingles is no longer with you, but I'm sure the memories will always be stored away in your heart. Congratulations on the new job! That is a lot to manage emotionally at once, but hopefully you are right in assuming the people are going to be pleasant to work with. I'll pray for a smooth transition for you!

susiemartin-I'm glad your nipping this binge streak in the bud! Good idea marking the binge free days, like My Michelle. I love when we can get good ideas from each other to help us stay on track.

I'm off to bed already. I look forward to a successful OP week this week. It's time!!!

TERAPET - sorry to here about your lose but congradualations on your new job.

TERAPET: I like to imagine that something wonderful, like a new job you will love, comes to you at a time when you need it most. Hopefully it will be the perfect counterpoint to the sadness in your life and will help you be busy while time is healing your grief. Congratulations on the job, and condolences on the loss of Jingles. He'll live on in your memories and stories about him forever.

candy love: don't let 10 minutes of exercise discourage you. Celebrate that you started and track your progress. You'll be amazed at how quickly your stamina and your abilities will increase (not as quickly as it goes away when you stop, so for god's sake keep going, lol!).

susie martin: I hope it's out of your system and you're able to get back to business. The sugar/carb combo is like a drug in the bloodstream. Go cold turkey baby, and get them out! (I think I was just talking to myself)...good luck!

Marniadec: good for you on the clothes! I loved that aspect of weight loss--the anticipation of getting into the clothes in my closet and drawers. "Shopping" from your own wardrobe was fun. Now all those clothes are too big for me. I'm not complaining, but I miss having a few pieces of clothing to try on that were closer and closer to fitting. Now I have to go BUY everything, and don't want to spend any more money until I'm done losing.

I did fine at the Oktoberfest event Friday night--danced like a fool to Brave Combo. They are sooo much fun. Went to an Oktoberfest party on Saturday night and went way over my cals even though I didn't feel like I ate that much (the scales confirmed it by being up a pound though). Today I did much better and really hope to get back in the groove of weight loss rather than just maintaining. Why is this so hard?

Check In Time

LouisaH It's "cold turkey" time alright. No more "stuffing" for me.


My face is really puffy this morning and my weight has skyrocketed to 231.6

I'm planning an OP day with a really long walk. Got to find a better way to handle stress (good & bad)

Hope your day is a good one!
