Follena: I've been fighting it off too. Everyone I know has had it, but so far, I've just had a few days that I felt "off", very tired and very hungry. I may still come down with it, but so far, I haven't. Hope you feel better soon.

Follena and Newlyn and ophelia: It's a temporary setback. You'll be back down in no time.

ange: You say you still don't have it figured out, but from my perspective, it seems like you have it figured out pretty well. I don't know that it ever becomes effortless for most of us who have been overweight and lost it. It is more likely to be something we always have to be at least aware of, even if it does get easier over time.

First new low all week. Yay. This was enough to move me into a BMI of 30.x and just 0.2 shy of being 70 pounds down. So close to getting to change my avatar again.

Congrats on your new low Lacerta! I remember when you changed your avatar to 45 pounds lost - it seems such a short time ago!

Back down. I realised I hadn't been to the bathroom for a couple of days, which explained a lot!

A weird week. I gained ... and then I lost a bunch. Last night I slept very heavy and when I woke this morning, my bed was soaked. I think I literally sweat out whatever bug or cold was plaguing me. Plus I drank probably 4 litres of water yesterday. I just could not get enough. So here I am, a little bit lighter and feeling top shape today lol.

Just a quick check-in today before heading to class and then to work. I will do personals next time! I didn't fully recover from my weekend gain this week, but I'm still averaging a 1.6lb loss for the week, so that's okay. Hope everyone has a great day!

With my work schedule going absolutely insane and travel and heater going out a couple days ago and computer crashing, I have not been weighing in, but I have been at the gym every other evening.

SW: 142.4
GW: 137.4

1: 142.4

I think I would have been lower today but I had delicious Thai food last night from our favorite local restaurant. I ate pretty on plan but I usually see a jump up from sodium the next day. Unless I lose a digit or a small organ I don't think I'm going to see 139.9 tomorrow (my mini goal for our company Christmas party) BUT it's not far away. Hopefully next week.

Ok, off to find a dress at the last minute! Have a great weekend everyone!

ange and Newlyn: Thanks, you guys are so sweet.

Follena: Grats on the new low and the megawhoosh.

ophelia: My average has fallen under 1.5 pounds/week now, so I think 1.6 is a great week. Way to go.

Snowmama: Christmas party? Your boss does know it's February, right? Anyway, have fun at your party.

So not a big loss for me overall this week, but given that I was up 1.4 at one point in the week, I'll take it. I actually was up 2 hours early today, so today's weigh in was pre-bathroom, on less sleep and earlier than usual. So really, I was lower, but I had to go to work early, so I got what I got,

Congrats on the losses everyone! I seem to be going in the opposite direction which is frustrating but I'm also waiting for TOM so I'm hoping that it's all bloat. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Lacerta: YAY for 2 days at 197. And congratulations on being just 0.2 shy of 70 pounds lost OMG. You're a champ.
MrsDeenz: I hear you ... weight loss is such a weird thing. We can be doing everything right on our eating plan and exercise and still no movement. I was gaining a while back when I was doing yoga. Or stalling for a couple weeks. Grrrr so frustrating. Hang in there. It will start moving in the right direction again.
snowmama: Whew! Your work schedule, travel, heater going on the fritz and computer crashing ... I'm so impressed despite all that you've still been at the gym every other evening. That is awesome!!
lol I hope you don't lose a digit or an organ. Hope you found a nice dress
Ophelia: ahhhh, I love looking at your weight 168 ... one day I'll be there and it can't happen a second too soon.
ange: thank you I feel better. Way to go on maintenance this week!

New low! Last week and this have really brought it home to me that >30 activity minutes, sticking to my chicken/beans/vegetables main meal, and v. limited chocolate actually work to lose weight. I knew this before, but I guess I need to see it working every week to believe it, and when I lose weight while at university, but not when I'm at home, it's more than a coincidence.

Long week this week. I don't really have the energy for personals today. Very long week at work and came home to husband and a friend of his sitting on my couch. The friend is getting a divorce and has nowhere to live and is sort of a mooch, with no real income (he's a commissioned artist, so he has income, but only sporadically and not much), savings, car, anything, so didn't have any place to go. He was staying with another friend and was very unhappy there. I had to put my foot down and tell hubby he couldn't stay with us. We are in a very small 2 bedroom townhouse, and the 2nd bedroom has exercise equipment, so no bed. He'd have to sleep on the (small) couch, and we only have one real room, so I wouldn't have any time to myself. As an introvert, I recharge when alone, so if I have someone extra in my space, I'd never recharge. I'm tired and stressed enough already.

I feel bad for the guy, but with no job, no car, and no savings, I know once he was in, he wouldn't ever move out. So I had to be the bad guy. To be fair, hubby did agree with me after I stated my case, and he broke the news, and didn't make me sound like the bad guy, but I still feel guilty. After a freaking long week at work, adding that on top on Friday night just wore me out. I admit to having some comfort food yesterday I wouldn't normally have eaten. I don't consider any food a "cheat", so I'm almost always "on plan", but yesterday, I didn't make conscious choices, I let my tired emotions choose, and that was "off plan" for me. Between that, and the "fighting off sick" eating earlier this week, this hasn't been my best week overall.

Gosh Lacerta, that sounds so stressful! I'm an introvert too and the very thought of not having space to recharge makes my palms itch. I'm all for helping friends but not if it has a detrimental effect on your own mental health. I wouldn't worry about your food choices at all! You've got a lot going on, inc. illness, and something had to give. It's not as if you're going to fall off the wagon for the next month. Sending a big cwtch and hoping you can chill out this weekend.

No change today. I've done more consistent walking this week than I have for months and hopefully I can keep that up, although an errant sharp toenail has damaged the toe next to it and it was all bloody and painful last night. I knew there was something amiss but I was out seeing Prof. Brian Cox's cosmology show (which was excellent btw) so I had to keep walking on it for the whole evening. It's all taped up now so I'm sure it'll heal in no time.
