  • Thanks, Olivia! Actually didn't wind up lifting last night, alas. One of our steers got out so we spent the afternoon trying to convince him to get back where he belongs.

  • I've come to the realization that I'm losing inches but not weight on this workout plan. I think the weightlifting is resulting in water retention for all of the muscle repair so I need to recalibrate my weight loss goal. I think I will lose closer to 3 pounds rather than the 8 I set out to do. It's no big deal as I'm not really focusing too much on the scale right now, I'm more focused on the pants I couldn't wear 3 months ago that were loose yesterday.

    Thanks so much RVAscreenwriter, Boatingmommy and kelijpa!!

    RVAScreenwriter -- YES, you will see progress soon, keep up the good work and way to go with the weights!!

    Its fairly obvious and i don't bother to mention it weekly, but I just don't have it in me to stick on plan on weekends. I'm pretty social and one dinner out or sharing some wine with friends and cooking a nice Sunday dinner always bumps me up by Monday anywhere from 2 to 5 lbs. Even if it is water weight, it still takes 2 or 3 days to get back to my Friday weight which only leaves a couple of days to make any progress before the weekend has arrived again! I've accepted this as OK, as long as I can at least be somewhat ahead each week. For the longest time i wasn't actually getting ahead each week so my weekend relaxation erased the whole week of work every week. I seem to have found a moderate path lately and am finally making headway towards the elusive 130's.

    That said, the plan this weekend is to have an entirely on plan weekend. I have been and will be declining any and all social invitations and i will run and go to the gym and eat according to my weekday routine. I'm sure I'll be a little grumpy as I have absolutely conditioned myself to lighten up and enjoy weekends, but i'm excited about the possibilities it means for progress. There, now that i've said it, I am accountable for executing it!!
  • March went slow but I met my modest goal... Onward to April!

  • Woodstock I have the same weekend routine! At this point inching along is ok with me, at this stage of my weightloss, I admire your drive to stay OPI'm sure you'll see a benefit, I continue my exercise over the weekend, but ease up on the food, so as long as I'm staying fit and getting stronger I'm happy, I want to try the OP weekend, too, I'll give it my best.
