Hi, I just signed up for 3FC yesterday and have been searching for a forum to help with my goals so thought I'd join this one. I lost 21 pounds last year but still have 30 more to go so I'm hoping I can be a bit more committed and accomplish my weight loss at a faster pace. So for January I will post my goal below
SW:194
GW: 185 (seems like a lot but I am starting a low cal/low carb diet and am hoping to see one of those"beginning week" losses!)
I only weigh myself once a week so I will post weekly.

Good morning, all! Love a big drop right off the bat, even though I know it's water weight from a couple of weeks of over indulgence. I did get my workout in last night and feel pretty good this morning with not too many aches. I didn't do any video workouts the month of December, but did do some power walks a few times. I wish it would warm up just a little to continue the walking...but not to be here in central Illinois.
I wish all of you a great OP day!

Total Loss for Week One:

Despite having a gain today, I'm actually quite excited to see that number today. I know I'm retaining a TON of water from DOMS, as I'm really sore. Also, I had dinner really late last night, so I"m still hanging on to a lot of that bulk. I thought i might be a lot higher today as a result. I suspect that without the water weight and food still in my stomach weight, I'd be down into the mid 203s and that is amazing. I have no idea how long to expect the water retention to last, since I'm continuing to do new workouts each day (today is the first core workout day, so that'll be a whole new sore set of muscles tomorrow). I suspect I could see larger than normal swings as some muscle groups drop their water and others hold on to it.

No time for personals this morning, but wanted to say hello and welcome to Adrianna and Kdmay

I had to get up early to take my car to the garage. It was a couple of hours earlier than normal and pre-bathroom so I didn't WI. Probably just as well as I ate my weight in cheese and olive bread yesterday!

Haha! That's what happens when I eat a salty cheese mountain! I think it's water though because I didn't eat THAT much cheese and my legs feel a bit swollen. I've done a lot more walking in the past few days than I have for a while and my muscles are telling me about it.

Newlyn: Step away from the cheese! Seriously though, I'm sure it probably is water retention. Way to go on the walking.

boatingmommy: You're still down from Tuesday, though, which is great, considering the chips and salsa probably have you retaining water too. I bet you drop down into the 180 in the next couple of days.

Still maintaining, which is great. Hopefully, I can stay here for another few days and then head downward again. I don't think I'm retaining as much water today, as the soreness is less, but I had dinner super late again. Looking forward to a normal schedule this weekend. But today is another leg day, so I may be retaining more water again all weekend.

I learned last night that apparently, I LOVE roasted asparagus. I'd never had it before. I like steamed and grilled asparagus, but had never tried roasted. I just broke off the stalks, washed them, dried them, tossed them in a bit of olive oil, a pinch of salt and a bit of pepper, spread them out on a foil lined cookie sheet and cooked at 450 for about 25 minutes. They were amazing. My new favorite way to eat asparagus. And amazingly, my super picky eater of a husband decided he was willing to try one and declared them to be "not bad", which is high praise from him. I roasted a cut up potato too, which I discovered takes quite a bit longer. Had to leave it in for another 20 minutes, so not everything was ready at the same time, but that's what happens when you're experimenting, I guess. The potatoes were great too. Tonight, I'm going to try roasting broccoli and maybe green beans because it's what I have in the freezer.

Total Loss for Week One:

No idea why the gain today. I actually feel less sore than I have all week, so I'm probably not retaining more water than I have been. And I ate dinner a little earlier than I have been (although still later than I'd like), and I got my walk in. I'm chalking today's gain up to the fact that I didn't wash my dishes from last night yet, so Karma is slapping me down. Seriously, though, I have to assume some sort of normal fluctuation. I ate really well yesterday again. Dinner was leftover roasted potatoes, and I roasted some more asparagus and tried roasted broccoli (it was ok, but I think I like it better steamed), and some tuna for protein. Lunch was soup and salad (no dressing). So most of my intake yesterday other than breakfast (which was Cheerios, like always), was vegetables and potatoes, I'm calling the scale bad names this morning and moving on. I have today and tomorrow off, so hoping to get back down to 204 again to end the week tomorrow.

Anyway, I just wanted to stay under 206 until the 10th, and so far, I've stayed under 205, so that's great.
