Default 8-23-06 Weigh In

Hello Ladies!!!

Congrats on all the weight loss so far. Im weighing in today as well...Im down to 149...thats a 2lb loss for me. YAY!

I havent posted in a couple of days, so I just wanted to catch up. I did go join that gym, its 24hrs M-F so i shouldnt have any excuses not to go work out, but I still havent made it over there yet. Its really intimidating, and things have just been so crazy here lately. My eating hasnt been great the past few days either.

I hope yall dont mind if I vent. I just graduated HS, my grandma flew here from out of state for it. She got VERY sick while she was here and she was diagnosed with cancer. My mom (who is also my best friend) flew with her back home. My mom stayed there for a couple of weeks caring for her and ect. My mom came back to help get my siblings ready to go back to school, but my grandma is not doing well at all, she flew out again today. Im the oldest of 5 children, and my family is very tight knit. My dad is still here, but Im sure everyone knows that dads just dont do things the same way as moms, so im picking up where my mom left off. I guess im just feeling very overwhelmed. Everything has happened so fast, in a matter of 2 months, and i guess i just wasnt prepared for any of it. Ive always helped out alot, but i think whats bothering me the most is that i cant help my mom cope or get peace of mind with whats going on with my grandma. I think i truely understand what moms go through now, theres so much to do and not enough time in the day and u just cant fix everything. Im sorry for this long vent, and im sure it probobly doesnt make much sense since im just rambling.

But, I wish everyone continued sucess, im getting back on track today, ive done great so far today. I'll check in again tomorrow
Have a GREAT day ladies!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I really feel for your family and especially your mom. When things like this happen, no one is prepared. It is a real feeling of helplessness that you feel. All you can control is yourself and what you do. It is even more important to stick with your exercise to help with the stress and help you feel stronger. Take care of yourself and things will be a bit better, I promise. You will be stronger and better able to handle what is thrown your way, and also better able to be there for your mom.

My thoughts are with you and congratulations on the 2 lb loss!

I've begun taking down everyone's weigh in results.

Okay, you talked me into weighing in! I did it this afternoon, and came in at a 1.6 lb gain, which I thought would be worse, based on my behavior this past week. I'm going to document it in our stat sheet, forgive myself and move forward. I am having an excellent day today!

u2girl - that 6 lb loss is impressive!!!!

I'll be watching for all the other weigh in results!

Melly~ Congrats on weighing in! See not as bad as you thought...I bet it would have been less if yah weighed first thing this morning...after the morning rituals!

ROX~ Sounds like your going through a lot right now. Sorry to hear that; I hope your grandma is okay and stays comforted by your mom...I know she must really appreciate your mother for being there and your family for letting her be there! A family should be tight Knit! As they are the little things that many take for granted; yet are the world to each other!

Yea!

Melly: I'm so proud of you. It takes courage to accept defeat but not be swayed by it.

Looks like we had some super losers. Congratulations for all those who had a good week. For those who had a tough week, stick with it and give us a good showing next week.

Congrats to everyone for their losses and efforts. Melly, I'm glad that you went ahead and weighed in and that it wasnt as bad as you may have thought. TTOM is a hard time. Cravings are strong and you may feel bloated. You have a fantastic attitude about continuing on and that is great!

Thanx for the congrats Melly. This is really my first week of eating better and letting go of certain bad foods. Typically my first week or two is a good loss, but then I go back down to 1 to 2 lbs per week. Thanx again!

Hello to everyone. I look forward to a new week with you guys!

Ciao!

Elycia
