Hi everyone, happy Friday!

Just q quick drive by basically. This morning I was back up to158.0. It is surreal still to see the 15 at the beginning of my weight! I also feel I could be looking for size 10's soon as my size 12 jeans are getting a bit loose!

KStrong

I hate when I would lose my long posts too so I still just use my laptop and copy my post just in case.

L&L's Mom - That is wonderful about the lower clothing sizes! Have you caught up with your Mom now so you can't get her "too big" clothing yet and will have to buy new? I bet she is thrilled for you.

Have a great week everyone!

KStrong You know, I never thought about that until you mentioned it about my mom's hand me downs. She does know I wear size 12's now and has even let me borrow her size 12 bathing suit last week at her time share she was staying at. (One nearby in Virginia Beach). They had a heated pool and she brought two bathing suits since I didn't have one. (My old size 24 one was long gone and I hardly go swimming). She hasn't mentioned having extra clothes to donate so maybe I am catching up to her? She looks smaller to me but she is a bit taller too, who knows? I think I have mentioned this before on here but my husband LOVES thrift stores. I go and look at things as well...where else can you get nice used jeans for like $6.00? I can always restock there if needed.

My weight is creeping up and I know my calories are OK, but is it water weight? Excess sodium? Oh well. It went up to 158.8 and then 159.8 and now 160.8 What the heck?? I have you as my hero of hanging in there...even if the scale doesn't show us some love we have to hang in there and keep doing the same old stuff...count the calories, etc...

Wow I wrote a book there!

L&L's Mom - I can't remember, did you ever measure? AT least your hips and waist? You may be having a sodium bounce and could still be losing inches??? You are still staying within a respectable pound or two so I hope you aren't being too hard on yourself. I'm the queen of BIG GAINS with absolutely no effort whatsoever.

I'm not a great one for measuring myself, but I have noticed my trousers (38" waist) getting rather more spacious lately so I tried on some smaller (36") ones & I fit in them - yay - but they're slightly snugger than I'd like, so they'll have to wait a little longer yet ...

anyway, I'm quite pleased as I was in 40" trousers this time last year, & I'm gradually reminding myself less of this slightly horrifying Reebok advert from 20-odd years ago lol

Hey guys! I'm still here and still bouncing around 180. My diet has been good as for as blood sugar goes but not enough for weight loss. I'm still procrastinating on exercise. I have good intentions. Today after DHs doctor appointment we had a discussion about a couple years ago when I was exercising regularly and I had excellent blood work, low blood sugar and triglycerides. I need to do that again. I am concentrating more on diet.

I confess that we are such regulars at Goodwill that we know the clerks by name and they us. It is located very near a high class housing plan. These people donate such good stuff!!! We are usually there twice a week, especially on senior day when we get 25% off the already cheap stuff. I haven't bought clothes in a retail store for years. The jeans I like sell for $44 in Kohls and even with coupons and sales I get them at Goodwill for $6 or under. So many tops are designer labels and often like new. I have so many clothes, current size and smaller, I need to go thru them regularly and donate some. I wear them for a while then donate them back. I am not too proud for this. Most of my kitchen utensils, casserole dishes, pots and pans are from there, too. We got a new dining room chandelier, still in the box, unopened for $19. Similar to one I liked at Lowes for $89. There is also a Salvation Army Thrift Store on the other side of town but their stuff is not as nice. No rich people in that neighborhood! I grew up wearing hand-me downs so this is not new to me.

I never measure. Well, not for years.

Mr Badger, my husband wears a 38 pants. They look very baggy on him but he has them pushed down under his belly. If he cut out the sweets he would lose that belly but just today his doctor said he's in very good shape for an 80 year old. (Its very hard for me to realize I'm married to such an OLD man! )

Good news, the scale is inching back down again, I will take it! It went to 160.4 yesterday and 160.0 today. KStrong Yes you'd be surprised of how many great deals you can get from Goodwill and other thrift stores. Like you said people either lose or gain weight and donate their old clothes and some still have the tags on. They only put the better stuff out (no stains, holes, etc..). I do measure. I measure just the waist and hips really. I have lost 11 in my waist and 13 in my hips. It's funny because if you asked me before I'd say my waist was more the problem as being more of an apple shape vs pear shape. I don't think you've mentioned the Lee outlet, but that for sure is a great motivator as you keep trying those 10's on! Mr Badger That commercial is so funny! Good job on getting down from the 40 jeans to the snug 36's! That's all that probably matters anyway for most men is the waist. Most men have all their weight in their waist, face and neck it seems. Wannabehealthy I am glad you checked in, your comment about your husband having his waist under his stomach reminded me of my ex husband. He would say how he still wears a 34 waist jean and his brother would rip him saying yea because it's way under your gut. LOL

I am so glad this thread is staying active, somehow just posting and checking in with each other is good group "therapy."

Happy Thursday all!

Well, I did it! I did my first of many exercise sessions! 35 minutes. It was hard starting out but I got my second wind and could have kept going but I didn't want to over do it. I can always extend it gradually. I'm not sure I will exercise over the weekend. I usually only exercise M-F. We'll see.

Mr Badger - That is great about your shrinking waist! I think men are considered out of the risk zone below 37" so you are doing well.

Carol - That is good about the blood sugar! It is fantastic that you have such a wonderful Goodwill to shop at. Great job on the exercise!!!

L&L's Mom - Yay for good scale news! You are awesome!

Have a great week!

No exercise Sat and Sunday except for walking around the casino. Monday was shopping, so walking around in the stores. Today I did 30 minutes of formal exercise. I really have to push myself to get started but I'm fine once I get going. I hope to reach the point where I WANT to do it and go longer.

I haven't weighed the past 2-3 days. I feel fat and don't want proof that I'm right.

Hi weight loss warriors!

I had a planned higher calorie eating day for the Superbowl. We stay at home and have some junk food for us like a party.

Luckily I was only up .4 Monday (vs. Sunday) because of it. Today I was 159.2 so the overall downward trend is hanging in there!

Wannabehealthy A BIG congrats on doing the two days of exercise, I am impressed! Just think..you are so close to reaching 40 pounds!I


KStrong Thank you as always for your support! Good job with hitting all your goals! I know your body will eventually have to reward you with a scale drop. Your muscle tone must be awesome. I have seen pics in magazines of two people the same height and weight, but can look totally different. One person works out and has more muscle tone and looks way better. Take pride in that!

Carol - Woohoo on the exercise official and not official! Movement is what matters.

L&L's Mom - YOU GO GIRL! As always my hero getting the Super Bowl planned day and still ending lower, back in the 150s! WOW. I am always in awe!

Belated Happy Valentines day!

Kstrong, I think its more important that you have the muscle strength than looking cut. As you near the senior years muscle strength is important. Not that you're there yet, but hopefully someday you will be, and you won't be weak and frail.

When my husband had his recent check up the doctor told him he looked very good for a man his age. I think that gave him incentive. He has been eating less junk food and walking on the treadmill daily. He has always been active and has good muscle tone. Just a little bit of a belly.

L&Lsmom, when I had Covid I actually did hit 40 lbs down as I got to 175 from 187. But that was sick weight loss and I didn't hold it all. I didn't realize I had lost that much until you mentioned it.

Carol - I definitely agree about feeling stronger and needing those muscles in our older years.
