Happy it is Friday!!! Saw 168.2 so I am definitely going to be GOOD this weekend if I wanna make my goal on Sunday.

Last night's dinner turned out good and fortunately everyone else liked them too, lol.

Tomorrow will be a huge get-together for poker at my dad's club and there's gonna be a ton of food (pulled pork, meatballs, lil wieners, hot/bbq wings, chips, nachos, etc.) Luckily I am able avoid a lot of them due to my health issues but that means I will need to bring my own food if I don't want to starve. I am thinking about making "healthier" hot spinach/artichoke dip. I will have to google some recipes and have that with pita chips. Homemade pasta or potato salad too.

This St. Patrick's is gonna be different for me from the previous years. No drinking at all. I am thinking about making beef and rice cabbage rolls with either mushroom sauce, beef "gravy" or maybe both. I normally make it with tomato sauce but since I have severe acid reflux so avoiding tomatoes for now.

Hope everyone has a GREAT OP weekend!

Naughty- Happy to hear you made good choices yesterday!

Can I join you ladies? I'm looking for something with more accountabilty and this looks perfect!

I weigh in daily, but record my weights on Sundays.

Tomorrow I would like to see 181 again as I just got there today and want to hold steady.

Weekly- 1-2 pounds per week
Long term goal: 135 by September 30th.

Hi all, can I join? I have been looking for a friendly group to join in on here and you guys seem like a good fit.

I'm Laura, 26, currently 147.4. BMI is 25.4; my first goal is to get to 145 which will be a healthy BMI for my height. My high weight was 200lbs the day after my third child was born, 18 months ago. Thirty of that came off easily, then I got from 170 to 159.8 over the course of about 6 months just making small changes. Every ounce since has been super hard, but worth it. I don't feel healthy at this weight and body fat, and I can't wait to have more stamina to run around with my kids!

Long term goal, I would like to be around 140 in May when we are planning to have our first ever professional family photos done. I want to be able to hang a picture of me and my kids on the wall and not cringe every time I walk past it.

For this week, my goal is to get at least 6 hours of sleep a night. I am spread really thin, and sleep is always what gets compromised.

Angiemama - I feel you on wanting to hold steady! I can't let myself really believe it until I see it two or three days in a row. Here's hoping its the same or even lower tomorrow!

Crow - I'm breastfeeding, too! How old is your baby? Mine is 18 months, so I don't have to allot to terribly many calories to nursing, since she only nurses a couple times a day lately.

Jez - sounds like a really stressful time of life right now. I'm so sorry you are struggling. Hoping you can be out of the 160s when you are shooting for; I bet that will perk you up! The 160s took me a long time to break out of, and it was the best feeling to see 159 on the scale!

Munchey - a salad with salsa instead of dressing sounds wonderful! I think you just decided what I'm having for dinner tonight!

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS! YOU CAN DO THIS!

ANGIEMAMA:
I'm rooting for you to make your goal by 9-30-13. You can do it!

LJ/LAURA
I'm betting that you will make that May goal and have a fantastic family photo and feel better too. Any extra sleep you can catch is helpful to weight loss.

Sinderelly:
I know you will look wonderful when you go to Florida in September. Your friends will be amazed.

Looks like I'm first to weighi in this Sunday -- that's GMTfor you!

My goal for today was 173lbs and I made it! 173 on the button this morning. Hope my long-term goal works out as well. My goal for next Sunday is 172lbs.

Hello to LJ and angie, fellow breastfeeding mamas! My little man is 8 months and very well established on 3 spoonfeeds a day, which is why I think the weight-loss is finally working. I work part-time so if I give him a big feed in the morning before we get up he can usually hold on until I get home for him just after lunch.

A big Happy St. Patrick's Day to all from the Emerald Isle!!

Count me in!
Ive been so slack in my journey for the past month or so that i really need to get myself back in the mood of ME! Havent been on a scale in a good while cuz im scared to to be honest. Used to do at least 30 minutes of exercise 7 days a week and now lucky if i get 1 day in.

* 3 days of official activtrax work-outs in at the gym.
* 2 days of tabata class at gym.
* start counting calories again. (1400 daily)
* make ME a priority again.
* ill weigh myself at end of the week and go from there for weekly lose goals.
* my aim is 1-2 lb loss a week.
I will weigh myself asap so as to get back on track.

My actuals for 3-10-13 thru 3-16-13 are:
Current Weight: 228 (Come on two teens)
LOSS: 1 pound
MILES: 25
DVDS: Did not meet


WHAT WENT WELL:
I was close to a 2 pound loss, but didn't quite make it. My personal strategy is to NOT claim a pound until it it a whole pound on the loss side. Did well with my food plan, but there is still room for improvement. I'm happy to see new campers posting!


IMPROVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Continue to work on getting up earlier in the morning - Target time 6:00 a.m
Sleep target - 8 hours of quality sleep (need to limit # of time I wake up & manage pain better)
Take an epsom salt & lavender bath before bedtime this week.
Improve my timing on doing things at the best time of day
Get in 30 minutes of some type of aerobics before breakfast each day
Continue to work on getting this metabolism jump started!
Ration computer time - balance exercise with stock market monitoring

My goals for the week 3-17-13 thru 3-23-13 are:

Weight loss Goal= 2 lbs.
Walking Goal = 30 miles
Exercise Body Parts = DVD's - One 30 minute session a day

Mid-term goal: Get to one-der-land by 6-30-13 (199 or less)
Long-term goal: 140 lbs.

So many of us breastfeeding! That's so cool!

I weighed in this morning, and I'm absolutely flabbergasted by what the scale said. I was 147.4 yesterday, and 145.4 today!

Sunday is my day off, so I did get enough sleep for a change. Usually, my daughter is asleep in the morning when I leave for work at 7am and she doesn't nurse until my lunch break. This morning, I put her in bed for some snuggles and she nursed both sides. I guess that's why my weight was so low this morning?! In any case, I will take it! I think I can keep myself from being devastated if it goes up again tomorrow.

Crow, congrats on hitting your goal!

Joy, welcome! Congrats on making the decision to make you a priority again!
