You ladies are amazing! Thank you for the encouragement!! Yesterday I stayed within my calorie limit, and this morning was the first day in ages that I did not show a gain (small drop ). I have put on 5 pounds this month; I hope some of it is just bloat. -- Not giving up, just because I fell off the wagon for a few months; I can get back on it

Sending to all

8/01 - 155.4

Sneaking in after a few horrid days

Jacqui, it was a little uncomfortable buying them. I felt like everyone walking by knew I was getting a larger size , ha ha and I could feel them eyeing my under wear size lol . It was all in my head , they didn't even see me there,,but sure felt real. That was enough to keep the cookies out of my mouth for a while...I want smaller underwear NOW

211.2 today. That's a total of 5.4 for the month. I need 1.6 to reach my goal! I want to SMASH it!

Sum - now that you're back on track you'll get that 5# off in no time! Fall 7 times, get up 8. As long as you don't give up it's going to be alright!

I'm taking my 13 year old grandson to the dentist and promised him mexican food for lunch. Wish me luck! It's difficult to find something to eat to stay on track when dining Tex-Mex!

Sum, congrats!

Cheeri, Lol! I know what you mean! It's when I have to hand them to the cashier that I cringe. I can't wait to buy new smaller ones too! And by the way I am (kind of) on the Slow Carb Diet. Here is a thread I started about it weeks ago: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/othe...carb-diet.html.

Bg, aw, aren't you sweet!

Cincorn, woohoo! Keep it up!

Seeing a pattern -- every time I eat food that didn't come from my own kitchen, my weight goes up. Which is unfortunate because this is not a good week in that regard. Today, though, lunch out is at a normal place and I know exactly what to get there that usually results in a down tic on the scale the next day. I'm going to make it a good day!

So it looks like the greyhound made a small appearance. I wish I could capture him and the whoosh fairy.

Scale flickered between 167.2 and .4, and settled on .4. So I hit the 10%! but I won't call victory until I get three days in a row on/under it. I was still in shock when I saw the scale, I got on it four times

Tuscany - you are ripping through those numbers!! congrats on the new lows and the unfilled closet. Looks like you might have to go shopping

bg - I can't believe you hit your goal for the month half way through. Bonus Round! (Overtime: You should get like lb and a half for every lb lost)

Pixi - glad you had a fun night out. I definately think its important to have those days. When I completely restrict myself I am more likely to binge.

cincorn - Awesome job, 5.4 lbs already!

cheeriloos - someone's showing the scale whose boss... 9 lbs in 11 days!!

Garden - you are doing so amaing, and so close to goal!

Bleu - got my big girl panties on, oh wait they don't fit anymore, and with your numbers this month I bet yours don't either!

Lene - stick with it! I bet those sleeping pills are affecting you, and you see some movement soon.

june - great job with the 3.5 lbs loss this month. You are totally setting yourself up for your August goal.

Sum - great job on sticking with it, and getting that drop today!!

jacqui - staying in onederland after a cheat day is great!

southern - I had a burger a couple weeks ago and went up 1.6 lbs overnight. Might be something about that salt.

leah - scale seems to be steady in the right direction

muses - welcome!

Good morning!! Looks like everyone has had a pretty good weekend

Cheerilos I actually am not a big tea person, I only like chai and peppermint. I'm drinking lots of coffee and water today though which seems to work fairly well usually.... hahaha I hate that feeling while shopping too, I got it most recently when I had to buy new pants. I just knew everyone must know I was going back up because of this I think I only have 1 or 2 pairs above the size 12's I bought back in Oct before regaining.

Southern It's great that you've found a habit that works! and don't worry, that gain will be gone in no time

Jacqui We'll just keep trucking and the water weight will be gone in no time! Just drink plenty of water to flush it out

Muses welcome to our party!! Looks like you've got a great goal in mind for the last half of the month

Bleumaus look at you! droppin it like it's hot lol just don't anger the scale and I'm sure it'll stick

Tuscany You are trucking along pretty awesomely as well! keep it up!

Sum you got this! I'm sure a good chunk of that is bloat and will flush right out in a few days.

bg congrats on the new low!!! Keep it up

cincorn good luck with lunch!! try to go for grilled meats, pinto or black beans instead of refried, cilantro-lime or other rice instead of mexican rice, or whatever veggies they have instead of rice or beans or both. most restaurants are very accommodating

Butterfly! Glad to have you and good for you on the weight loss!

Great job, Tray! Keep going!

Yay, Fair! Way to go on already meeting goal for this month!

Pixikat, thanks! Yes, I definitely didn't have enough water yesterday, so I've been keeping it by my side today.

Turtle, congrats on the 10%! If the whoosh fairy comes to visit you, be sure to send her my way. I need to get rid of these cheat day lbs!

Good attitude, Joy! And yes, eating out can definitely be tricky!

Yep! This is the reason I am scared to leave home for any meals right now. There has got to be some restaurants out there that can still have tasty food without all the added sodium, etc! So aggravating!
