Good Morning, everyone. Just thought I'd check in to see if we got any new sign-ups. I have done fairly well with my food the past few days, just a few small slip ups. I'm trying to eliminate those slip ups. I haven't been out of the house for a few days because we are having such a cold snap. Supposed to stay in the single digits for the next couple days with a warm up into the 40s for Monday.

I'm a little disappointed in myself that I haven't been doing much exercise. Usually when I go out I get a lot of walking in in the stores. I don't mosey....I go at a pretty good clip, get what I need and get out. It's been too cold to go out much. I have exercise equipment here but just can't get myself moving. I did do some chair exercises while watching TV. I guess that's better than nothing, but I really do need to do more. Once I get into the habit it will be easier to keep it up.

Hope everyone is doing well with whatever plan they are following.

I had intended to wait until weigh-in day to get on the scale (Sunday), but I got on this morning out of curiosity and have had no drop. Not even a smidgen. I'm disappointed, but in my heart I know I haven't been doing enough to cause a drop. I am thankful that there's not an uptick, but the whole idea is to LOSE WEIGHT. Maybe I can work harder at this the next 2 days and see an improvement by Sunday. I need to rethink this no weighing daily.

Carol ~ It's always disappointing to see no change but when it's happening to me I always try to keep in mind that our body is not a machine. Sometimes it does things that makes no sense. Especially for us women that can have hormonal factors effecting the composition in our bodies on a daily basis.

This link is to a video of a really cool way of explaining water retention and the Whoosh we all love. She refers to a Keto lifestyle but I feel like your fat cells will act the same way on any diet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xF3r...be&app=desktop

Thank you wannabehealthy, tkkoz, chanticleer and Ophelia for your positive pregnancy vibes!!

wannabehealthy Your goal of 5 lbs. per month sounds great, I think I will follow suite with a very similar goal. I also agree with you that I do much better when I log on to the site every day. I am always reading, even if I don't have the time to respond. I am really curious to see where the last 30-40 lbs. comes off. I have lost a bunch in my face and collarbone, but still have a ton of fat on my stomach (was always a pear before, so this is weird for me) and thighs. I also wonder if I am going to lose too much in the spots that I don't need it from. I have never been this close to my goal before and have no idea what to expect! That is awesome that you have been doing well with your eating plan and that you are working to eliminate some of the small slip ups! I really need to incorporate exercise into my routine, so plan on doing so very soon. I have an official weigh in day on Wednesdays, but I always end up sneaking a peak before. Hopefully it is just a normal fluctuation you are seeing and when its time for your real weigh in day it will go down for you. I was a daily weigher for most of this journey and I will say that it was not surprising to me to have a bounce up one day to be followed by a loss the next day.

lindifer and toomanydimples, hi!! I think we have been on the same threads in the past, good luck !!

chanticleer I wonder how I will end up modifying my goal weight, I have no idea what I will look like at 140. This might sound silly, but figured I would ask you since you know you have small bones/frame. Is there any indication of the size of your frame or bones before you are doing losing weight? I have measured my wrist but that seems silly since there is still fat on it, so it doesn't seem like it would be very accurate. My body shape has changed a lot in the past 15 years. I used to have big thighs, a big booty and relatively flat stomach. Now, my butt is much smaller and my stomach seems to be holding most of the excess weight.

ophelia I am excited to be in another challenge with you! Watching your numbers go down is very motivational for me!

warrior, tkkoz and bella - I hope you all are doing well, good luck!!

This has not been a good week for me. I know I will not show a loss tomorrow, and am hoping I don't show a gain. I don't know what's wrong with me....I just can't get into the weight loss mindset. What can I blame it on? LOL Maybe the cold weather is making me want to eat, to keep my insulation.

But I still feel the determination to be effective in 2018. I have always had a problem with challenges. For some reason, they make me feel pressured, and I don't do well under pressure. I need to just stick to plan for ONE DAY, and then do it over and over.

Wannabehealthy: The 'right goal' for everyone is different for everyone, I agree. The generic 'ideal weight' only works for populations, not for individuals. Your chart is slightly different from the one my doctor uses, but ultimately pretty similar. My doctor's is more like this one:
http://apps.who.int/bmi/index.jsp?in...e=intro_3.html
I got to learn that at my high weight I was Class II Obese, which has elevated risks that my doctor was concerned about for me. So fun.

kfunk: It isn't silly at all! Well, I was thin for all my life (skinny, really), so I got a good long look at how small my frame is from that. But no, when people are bigger I don't think it's accurate to measure the wrist because of the fat. I've seen the charts for it, and I know the size my wrist is at my healthy weight and how it was at my high weight, and there's a big difference! But my frame certainly didn't grow!
My body has changed as I age, too. I only gained the weight relatively recently (mental and physical health issues I was ill-equipped for), but before then I was finally outgrowing my skinny look. I was getting hips and a more defined waist (though I didn't actually gain any weight to do so - I was just leaving young adulthood, I think). Now it's all covered up with excess weight, of course. Who knows what it'll be after losing like 100 lbs.

Yay, Yay, Yay. In spite of not doing well with my eating through the week I am still down 1 lb. I will gladly accept 1 lb a week as long as it's consistent. My dinner last night was a huge salad with lots of fiber, so that helped. I vow to do better this week. It's supposed to warm up a bit this week so I will do more than sit in my recliner wrapped in an afghan. LOL I do realize that exercising would help warm me up.

Chanticleer, may I call you Maggie? You can call me Carol.

The chart your doctor uses is probably better going by BMI rather than just weight. It reflects some of the differences in us, although there's still muscle and bone structure to consider. I think both are just considered to be a guide. We all know if we are way off on the numbers, and I think being in the ballpark is good.

I 100% agree with everything that you wrote. I have been gaining and losing the same 5 lbs. for months now. It is time to recommit to myself and get done with the loss part so I can focus on maintenance. I wish us the best of luck. WE CAN DO THIS!! Congrats on your loss last week!!!

chanticleer Thank you for that, it makes perfect sense to me!! How have things been going lately for you?

toomanydimples to say that your last week went well is a huge understatement!! I am in awe of your loss during your TOM!!!! I am super bloated and have been waiting for mine to show up, hoping that when it finally does that I get a whoosh!

I see from the personal charts that there are some other good losses, too. Congratulations to all. I hope the rest check in so we get 100% participation. I have tendencies to be a drop out when things aren't going as planned, and I don't want to do that. I want to participtate the whole way through no matter what!

TooManyDimples, thank you for posting that video about water retention. I bookmarked it so I can go back to it and find similar videos. I do try to stay low on carbs because it helps control my diabetes, but I am not consistent enough to ever get into ketosis. I don't feel well if I eat too much fat, and I eat vegetables, so that could be why. And if I saw I've given up starchy carbs at this point I would be lying. My eating is still not where it should be for good weight loss, but I'm working on it. Baby steps.
