Good morning everyone! Thanks for the welcome back Atarimae and gardenerjoy.

TOM is here, which probably accounts for the bump up. It usually isn't so dramatic, so we'll see what happens over the next week. Dinner was chicken, mashed cauliflower, and green beans. Not feeling all that hungry today.

Wednesday = ticker changing day! Ticker will change to 147.7. Glad that there's a positive change since this whole month has been relatively stall-y so far. The parent event was a success; I only had one student who didn't have a parent show...which was probably the best turnout in the grade level! I feel like my eating has been more on track this week. Yay. Happy Wednesday!

VickieLou: Thanks. I'm not quite there yet. 1.6 pounds to go. But so close. Grats to you on reaching 80 pounds down. You're doing amazing.

Snowmama: Welcome back. I meant to say it earlier, just haven't had much time to spare this week, and didn't want to forget by waiting any longer. I would say it was good to see you, but that's such a mixed message, given what these boards are for. It's good for me to see you, even though you'd rather not need to be here. But way to go getting back on the horse at only 8 pounds up. And you climbed 22 miles up Mount Whitney?! That's amazing. Huge way to go on that.

That's another new low. I'm shocked at how well this month is going. Today's weight makes this month tied for the best month I've had in 2019. If I lose any more, it'll be the best I've done since last October. No idea why the ongoing losses compared to absolutely nothing last month, while doing the same things. But it is fun right now to keep seeing the scale change. Oh, and today's weight means I've marked off the goal of 7 stone lost, for those of you in the UK.

Wow, good going Lacerta! It's definitely weird how the human body works, but with this rate, no complaints!

This morning showed 146.6. I ate double serving at dinner, but struggled to eat my whole lunch, so that could've had something to do with it! Who knows? I have two planned all-in meals/days this weekend...and maybe, unfortunately three. At least if the mindset is right, I'll know not to feel disappointed at the scale come Monday. It's just a very going-out weekend, starting from a Friday school carnival. I guess instead of two DAYS of all-in, three MEALS of all-in isn't so bad.

Atarimae: Thanks, I feel great. And I don't think there is anything wrong with 3 all in meals this weekend. I had one for lunch on Tuesday, and was so stuffed I didn't eat dinner. I thought about having an apple, but I wasn't even hungry enough for that. As long as you go into it knowing that it is just those 3 meals and then back on track, you're fine. It is when it becomes an every week thing that it starts to add up.

Total Loss for Week Four:

That isn't a typo. I'm down to another new low again today. I'm not sure where all this is coming from. Last week, I thought I must be losing September's weight along with October, but I was only averaging about 2.5 pounds a month and I'm now down 7.4 pounds this month (so 3 month's worth). I mean, I did switch my breakfast out to a lower calorie lower carb one a couple months ago, and started doing some strength training a few months ago, and have been working to actively eat less chocolate (I would say I only average about 100 calories per day now in chocolate). Maybe all those things that hadn't shown any difference are finally showing up. However, given my historical stall and whoosh pattern, it also could just be a prolonged whoosh and November and December will completely stall out. But either way, I'm now 99 pounds down and only 1 pound from my 2019 goal. Even if I totally stall out, and even with all the end of year holidays, I should be able to lose 1 pound in 2 months.

Oh, edited to add that I am wearing my size 8 jeans to work today for the first time. My 10s were getting too big - which is a sentence I never thought I'd be able to say in my entire life. 8 was my dream goal size when I started, that I never thought I could get to. Now I know I can realistically get to a 6 or maybe even a 4. I can fit easily into my 6s, just too tight to wear out yet. I haven't bought a 4 because I didn't think that was even realistic to think about. I put on my old 18W this morning to see whether I could fit into 1 leg yet. I thought maybe I could get them to my knees. I got them almost all the way up. Not quite all the way, but 90%. My toes were sticking out the end and they were at the bottom of my hips. When I started, they were almost too small to wear at all and now I almost fit in one leg. I bet I can get them up in another 10 pounds.

Edited again to also add that I'm now tied with my loss with October 2018. In my entire journey, I've only had 3 months better than this one. So this really is an abnormal loss for me.

Lacerta! Oh my goodness, you're so close! The jeans NSV is even more awesome. I can't wait to be in single digit pants sizes. (I'm currently wearing an 11/12...kind of bottom heavy ) You will definitely make that goal...I can feel it!

Speaking of strange whooshes, I weighed in at 145.5 this morning. I mean, I realistically know I haven't lost 2.2 pounds of FAT in two days, but nonetheless, it's awesome to see numbers I haven't seen in...well, years. 145 even would put me in the high end of 'normal' for my height, so I'm quite excited. Happy Friday all!

I thought I should weigh today because I've been following my food plan pretty well recently. The next two or three days are going to be impossible to plan due to tending to family stuff and that's not my best situation.

At least, I got to see myself down almost half-way to my goal!

October goal: -1 kg (reach 96.2 kgs)

1: 97.2 kgs
6: 97.2
26: 96.75

VickieLou, Lacerta, Gardnerjoy, Atarimae great losses ladies! You all are an inspiration!

I've struggled the past few days. Thursday was a complete blowout. I craved everything all day and ended it with a bad choice from a local restaurant. The only good thing was I couldn't eat the giant burger I ordered. Three bites in and I was full and nauseous. Previously, I would have scarfed the whole thing down and eaten the side of onion rings to boot! I've always found it very easy to eat carbs as they seem to pass out of my stomach quickly. I've tried to make it a new habit to eat veg and protein first to fill up and only add hopefully healthy carbs at the end. Friday was a bad day at work. Very early breakfast then only a cup of tea until 14 hours later. I stayed within goals for the day but ate most of my calories in the 2 hours before bed. And nowhere near enough water! Today I really really want sugar. Almost feel like I need to detox all over again. But I have all my meals and snacks planned out. I missed the gym yesterday but will get in my treadmill miles today. Monday's weigh in might not be pretty but luckily I've got bonus days to get to goal. I have to remind myself that one bad day doesn't erase 8 months of hard work.

Have a great weekend!
