hi kfunk I want to get to 54kg because it hits a few milestones: it's a new decade for lbs (119), its 25% weight loss for me this year, it get's my BMI to 20.X, and historically it's a target I've had for the last 25years whenever I've been on a diet (which I've managed to reach occasionally, last time probably about 6-7 years ago, but never stayed more than about 6 months at...... ) . How have you been going? Did you emerge from the weekend unscathed?

Chunkalunkah I order my meat in bulk from a company called zaycon fresh. You can look them up online. The company is out of Washington state and they are basically a coop of farms all across the country offering farm to consumer meats throughout the year. They started out offering boneless, skinless chicken breast(40lbs at a time) and bacon, and now they've grown to all kinds of meats from ground beef, to steaks to cod, salmon and shrimp(all wild caught) and the prices are outstanding. If you don't have a deep freezer you can get together with friends/family to order. More than you probably wanted to know but it's more than worth it. You can put your zip code in the search there and see where the nearest pickup location is in your area.

I'm surprised that I dropped again today though I didn't eat to the top of my calories yesterday. Today I did so we'll see if I get to keep this loss.

I had another loss today and am the lowest I've been since last fall! Goodbye, indulgent Saturday nights. I'd rather keep up the progress than eat and drink whatever on that night. I think the extra steps I've been getting in are helping too, and now that I'm used to it, those steps feel routine and almost effortless. I'm so happy to be losing again.

My goal this month was 5 pounds. I'm a pound away from that and likely won't be losing that pound before the end of the month. But I will be losing it eventually!

Relativity is a funny thing. I'm so happy to be at my current weight now, on the way down, but when I was gaining the weight about 3 years ago, seeing this weight on my scale would've been alarming.


ophelia - Thanks! I really should watch Deadpool. I find Ryan Reynolds so likable.

ange - I'm so happy for you! You hit goal so swiftly!

kfunk - Thanks!

momtopands - Thank you. I'm insatiable in what I like to know so the more pertinent info, the better. What you said was incredibly helpful. I was having a hard time visualizing 40 lbs of chicken breast (wondering if I could squeeze it in my freezer), so I appreciated the heads up that a deep freezer or co-buyer would work best. Congrats on the continued losses!

yangtzer - Well done!

My apologies if anything I said was incoherent. I'm pre-caffeine and feeling it!

Ange: Such nice drops this week...good work!!


kfunk: As long as you're okay with some foul or suggestive humor, you'd probably love it...Ryan Reynolds is the perfect actor for the character and really brings his personality to life, lol.


momtopands and Joe: Nice losses!!


gardenerjoy: I hit my month's goal on the 23rd! And, nice loss for you too, by the way!


Chunkah: He carries off the humor of the character so well that it's like he was born for the role...I think, if anyone else had played Deadpool, they would have come across awkwardly and possibly flopped the films. But, Ryan's delivery makes it hilarious! And, congrats on another loss and getting back to last season's low!


-----------------------------------------


Weight held steady at 175.4 again today, which means I only lost 1 lb overall this week. Still better than a gain, especially considering that my husband came back this week, we've been out to eat twice since he's been back (had Mexican last night, of all things, too...lol), and that I had a couple off-days with the water. The slower loss makes sense. However, I got my full gallon of water and all my steps in yesterday, and I'm planning to do the same today, so I'm hoping that means I can move down a little further over the last few days of the month. We shall see!

gardenerjoy and Joe nice losses!

opheliaphoenix you're doing great! You're making nice progress through this decade!

chunkahlunkah It's hard to imagine at first but with group buying you can enjoy the savings, the best quality meats(they are delicious!) while stocking up! I now live in a house so I have room for a deep freezer and now i'm a Zaycon addict!

I kept my loss so i'm claiming it! I didn't think i'd be able to reach this month's goal but i'm only 0.5lb away! Here's hoping I can make it!

Ange- You are on fire!! I did pretty well this weekend and fantastic if you take the pizza and cheesecake off of last nights menu

Momtopands- Congrats on your big drop!! I hope that you are able to make your goal, you are so close!!

Lunkah- Wooohoo!!! That is awesome, keep up the hard work!!

Ophelia
- that sounds right up my ally! Hopefully adding in extra water will help move things along. Its nice you were able to go out and enjoy dinner with your husband and still stay at goal!!

Joe- yesterday was an iffy day for me as well, but like you, I am cutting back today!

Gardenerjoy- Nice drop!!

Nicoley- Hopefully the scale will start moving for you very soon.

I am pretty happy with how I did during the holiday weekend. I did not track WW points like I should have, but I ate like a normal person and didn't binge. Last night I ate 4 pieces (1/2) of a medium Domino's pizza and then a piece of cheesecake. I should have stopped sooner, but at least I didn't eat more.

momtopands: I hope you're able to get that last half pound...you've done amazing this week!


Ange: How awesome!! You're killing it this week, as well.


Joe: I hope today goes a little better for you!


nicoley73: Here's to us both being able to move down over the next couple of days!


kfunk: I bumped back up today randomly, but sticking with the water and being on plan and hoping to move back down before month's end. And, holiday weekends are always harder on the tracking and staying on-plan...good job on not going into binge-mode because of it and being able to eat normally, and I hope the bloat from the pizza comes back down right away!


-----------------------------------------


Weight went up a full pound to 176.4 today, but not exactly sure why. Yesterday was completely on plan -- I was on the low end of my calorie range (not even the sodium intake was high), got in a gallon and a half of water, and also got in a 3 mile evening walk. I could have pushed the walk a little farther, but the gain is still a mystery. Perhaps some pre-cycle water retention going on? I still have a full week before any of that, but I'm just throwing at some guesses for myself...lol. Or, maybe it's just a delayed reaction to the Mexican food on Sunday. Either way, hopefully I will be able to come back down before Thursday's weigh-in. It's like my body hit my month's goal to the exact ounce and has been toying with me ever since.

Ophelia I think the pre-cycle water retention may be the culprit for you. At least we will get our TOMS out of the way early next month!! I don't like it when things don't show up on the scale the next day, so if your bump up is related to the Mexican food you ate a couple days ago then that is BS hahah!!

It is safe to say that I will not be making my goal by tomorrow. I had a rough month with 2 full weekend long binges, so I will count my lucky stars to be back where I was before I lost control. I have been back on track for the past couple weeks so I know that June will be a better month for me. I am really excited to see what I can do without having the self inflicted gains!
