Hi everyone! I hope it's not too late to join this challenge...

Since I just started my journey...again...my goal for Feb is 10 pounds, since I am sure most will be water weight.

Good luck to you all!!!

My goal is to lose 9 pounds in February.

My plan is to lose weight in time for my 30th class reunion. My plans are still that - but looks like I will be meeting my old classmates a lot sooner than I wanted. Going to a memorial service for one of my classmates who passed away after a lengthy fight with cancer. So sad. But it will be nice to see old friends and catch up and remember our friend.

Default Coffee

I guess I could have just said I liked it also

Coffee. Your coffee question.

" Any of you have a problem with coffee messing with your adrenals/metabolism/thyroid?"

Short answer, "Yes." The second part is your request

"Please share any experience with coffee keeping you in a holding pattern."

I am not sure what you call a holding pattern. But I will tell you some of what I know about coffee from my experience. And I will be bouncing back and forth in time about what I write to attempt to impart info more easily understood.


First, I love coffee. I have thought several times I should give it up, and sometimes I have had to stop drinking it for a few days to allow my system to regain some normalcy. Because I drink a LOT of it. How coffee has or does affect me has changed throughout my life. When I was in my teens I could drink unlimited amounts of it right up to bed time, lay down and go right to sleep and did so until my mid thirties. For the past several years I had to give up coffee after my morning 12 cup pot because it got to where I could not sleep if much was in me.

With this weight loss thing and all, one of my major problems was what I could drink. Due to the sugar soft drinks were out. I simply cannot tolerate the aftertaste from diet drinks, nor artificial sweeteners in any food for that matter. Nor can I drink too many/much fruit juice because of the sugar in them though I love fruit juice of almost any kind. Anyway, it came down that other than water coffee was about it for me. Though I like a good unsweetened tea I do not like what drinking a lot does to my teeth, so I seldom drink ice tea now. I tried iced coffee and found I love it. But I had problems with the overload of caffeine. So I tried mixing de-caf coffee with regular coffee and now drink it all day long, starting out with hot coffee then switching to iced coffee. By going de-caf I keep it within reasonable limits, however if I exceed too much in a given time I suffer the consequences of jittery, loss of short term memory and inability to focus well enough on a project to avoid problems.

They say it is the caffeine in the coffee that does it. I am sure that caffeine is a major part however I think some of the other chemicals which make up coffee contribute much to it's affects on us.

The effects of caffeine/coffee are not linear. They are like an arc starting with low end/energy climbing to a summit of both physical and brain hyperactivity then like falling off a cliff dropping off into lethargy again when too saturated by the coffee.

For me, coffee is both a plus and a minus. On weight loss, it's effect for me is that of furnishing me with something I like to drink. Other than that, I cannot attribute coffee to affecting my weight loss. Whether it does or not, I don't know.

I could write way more about coffee but I think that covers the major part. I know that is not a definitive answer to your request, but it is best I can do.

Good luck with it Mossy

Thanks for that....I think coffee is so darned good. A person gives up soda, energy drinks, fruit juice - coffee sure is nice to have.

You're a history buff. I'll have to spring some photos on you here and there for fun.

We have been traveling (thinking about moving to Boston and apartment hunting), no weigh-ins for me. I have no idea if I have gained/lost.

Hey kelijpa! Way to go!!!
I have been checking in but have not had time to post. My brother-in-law had a heart attack Monday night and things are crazy. He is doing well...but maybe now I can get more family members to support my weight loss, as well as their own!?

Sum38: You'd have to really love Boston to consider it in its current state of buried in snow.

boatingmommy: glad your brother-in-law is doing well after such a scare. This does seem like a good time to campaign for a family-wide health kick. I really liked the book Strong Women, Strong Hearts by Miriam Nelson for good advice and motivation to follow it. Also, WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook by Kathy Kastan has great advice in the front (including a list of foods to eat more of) and good recipes.
