wow Ophelia, an all-nighter? Don't think I've ever been that dedicated to learning something! How did the exam go?
Lacerta - you also have some erratic hours to do! What's your job again where you have to do these high-intensity periods? (sorry, forgotten!). Yeah 114 seems to be the current weight for me, but a few months ago it was 113 or 112 for almost 9 months, so i'd like to get back to that. In a couple of weeks it will be 1 year ago since I got below 114 for the first time ever. Still figuring out maintenance!!
Newlyn - stick it out girl, you're doing great to just keep going. You'll see the drop soon.

Went back to Kristy's spin class today for the first time for a few weeks. It shows. It was tough - my face is still burning!

Ophelia: Thanks, I actually was the rest of the way back down today, so YAY. I did some all nighters in college, but that was 20 years ago. I'm definitely too old to do that these days. Kudos to you. Hope you aced the exam and got some more sleep.

ange: I run my parent's real estate/ property management/ construction office. We manage about 300 rental homes for about 90 owners and do between 100-300 real estate transactions a year and build some houses and duplexes (numbers vary a lot on that, we've done as many as 80 in one year before). We are a small business, mostly just my parents and I for many years, but these days, we have 2 other full time employees. Most of the month is relatively calm, I'm pretty busy from the 1st to the 5th as people pay rent, and then checks are due out to all the subcontractors by the 10th, and we also pay all the owners their rents on the 10th. In 19 years, we've only missed that schedule once (Snowmaggedon). So the 5th to the 10th usually has 3-4 days of crazy for me, and busyish from the 1st to the 5th, but the rest of the month is pretty quiet. I'm actually taking today off.

Yay, that is a new low for me. Onward and downward indeed. I hope to see a 1 this weekend.

It's amazing what staying on plan does for my weight loss. I did well yesterday...no cheats, ate when I was hungry for the most part. Around 5ish, I got to where I was wanting to munch on stuff...so, I had a few on-plan items...not too many, just enough to curb the cravings. I also tried to drink water throughout the day when I felt like I wanted to eat out of habit. Hopefully, I can keep moving down. The lowest I've seen since starting back in January was 197.

Dragging myself back after quite a while of being off track. I wasn't able to exercise anymore since last September due to knee issues. Still not 100% but i've gained back over 30 of the 54 lbs I lost last year. If I don't get at least my eating back on track I will just rediscover it all so here I am! Nice to see some familiar faces!

Hello again everyone!!

June and the beginning of July were absolutely nuts for me - my son graduated high school at the beginning of the month, I worked my butt off to get the whole garden in, plus we built a greenhouse and 2 new garden beds (one for perennial vegetables - I can't wait for fresh asparagus and garlic!!). Then we were talked into being part of the local garden tour this year, was this past Saturday, so getting the yard to look as perfect as possible was quite a feat! We have about 3 acres cultivated with various gardens, so it was a pretty big undertaking.

The good news is I have lost some weight with all the working! The better news is that despite the scale not dropping as much as I had hoped it was because I was replacing fat with muscle and I got into a pair of jeans I haven't wore in over a year!! I am tempted to try a dress that I haven't worn in ages because I looked like a stuffed sausage but not sure I am quite up to that.

My goal for July is to lose 5 lbs. My diet now that the garden is producing is very veg heavy, and my water intake is definitely higher than normal so 5 lbs should be doable. Thanks for the thread Lacerta! And congratulations to everyone on your victories!!
