For everyone I missed :wave:

Everyone keep up the good work!

nikkidee - Not too late at all! We're glad to have you. :) I included your goal in the updated list below.

ratc - Way to go getting right back on track!

Sorry I missed so much this past week while away; I will be here more often this week! I stayed active while on vacation and I did pretty well with my food (I was definitely under maintenance every day), and though my weight was down a little on Thursday I am back up 0.9 lbs this morning. I'm not pleased, but I just started my first TOM in 3 months this morning and so might be holding on to some extra water. We'll see over the next week I guess, and in the meantime I just need to keep on track.

Yay on the whoosh envelope! I love those!

My weight is thankfully down from yesterday's TOM high (that better have been the high, lol), but I didn't get as much of a drop as I'd hoped. Maybe I'll see a little more come off in the coming week?

Alright ladies, we're one week down for the month and still have 3.5 weeks to go - lots of time left to lose that weight! Let's use it to maximum effect!

ChickieChicks 08-07-2011 08:09 PM

Boo hiss. I'm up 2 pounds out of nowhere. I feel huge, but not bloated? Still 100% on plan and exercising. Ugh....

chickadee32 08-08-2011 10:33 AM

ChickieChicks: A wise friend here has frequently told me - don't stress! Stress can make things worse, and make the weight come off more slowly. I'm certain that being up 2 lbs overnight is nothing more than water weight, and in all likelihood it WILL come off shortly. :)

How did everyone's weekend go?

Today is the second day in a row that my scale has moved downward, and I'm really hoping this will be the new trend for a few weeks! 5 lbs to go until I get into the 180s, and I'd love to make some significant progress toward that goal this week.

Hope everyone has a great day!

ChickieChicks 08-08-2011 02:03 PM

TOM is coming. And I'm STOKED! Maybe for the first time in my life. LOL I've been feeling like poo, not motivated and this weird weight "gain". Voila! Just gotta suffer through it and stay OP and wait for this week to get back to normal. Sigh...deep breaths! ;-)

I did a killer workout with my hubby Saturday morning and did housework ALL day yesterday. My hubby and I go way overboard, so yesterday some of the things on my list were sweeping out my van, stocking chicken coop, making Cranberry Peach Conserve, cooking elaborate dinner, errands, painting the stairwell and hand rail, cleaning all 3 bathrooms meticulously and trying to wrangle the kids between all of that. My hubby helped with the painting and then was outside doing yard stuff all day.

Today was more of the same hectic. Buying school supplies, laundry, sweeping and dusting up and downstairs, waterplay with the kiddos, a 3.6 mile bike ride with my toddler on the kid-seat. I am pooped and VERY READY to get back to my hardcore workout days. It gives me an excuse to avoid housework for another week. ;-)

PghGal 08-08-2011 08:58 PM

Well, the weekend was rough. I worked out every day (Fri, Sat, Sun) but went over my calories Friday and Saturday. Although, when factoring in the calories burned during work-outs, I was within my limit. But dear Lord --- SODIUM was out of control ... which means retention of water!!

CW today is 271.0 ... SW was 275.5. Not bad, but I feel like I should be further along given the amount of working out I'm doing. Oh well ... going to keep plugging away this week and see how it goes.

Hope everyone else is doing well!! :D
