mmm...shrimp patties sound delish, and easy, too - I will definitely be trying them this week!

Is it time to set May goals yet or is it still too early. My scale fell again today! I am at 132.5 this morning and that is without a full night's sleep. For some reason, sleeping helps my weight go down. My DD woke me up this morning around 2 with an earache. When I get awakened like that I have a very difficult time going back to sleep. I don't want to sleep in as it is worse for my body in the long run. I really credit my scale drop today to my extra long runs Saturday and Sunday and extra clean eating several days. I am almost scared to move my ticker. Maybe I will wait one more day. This will make day three for it to drop in a row which is usually how it happens for me after several weeks of staying on plan.

I took my kids to a fair yesterday. I did NOT know cotton candy only had 120 calories for the gigantic bag! Wow.

Good luck with the shrimp patties. We love them. You can actuallly use that same recipe for any fresh seafood you have. I typically buy whatever healthy fish is on sale. (I don't buy farm-raised anything.)

Good for you! I am still sitting at 133.4 - just .4 lb to make my 2nd April goal; hopefully I can do it!

My May goal is to HIT goal - and not just during May, either; my target is to get there by the end of the 30-day yoga challenge I am doing, which wraps up May 14th.

That's kind of freaky about the cotton candy - I mean, it makes sense, as it's just sugar blown up with air, but I would've guessed it to be a lot higher.

Thanks Su-Bee.

Like you, I would like to HIT goal by the end of May. If I could just SEE 129.5on the scale, I would be satisfied.

Well, I have 132.8 at this very moment - but this is after workout, but before chugging my bottle of water, so I know it's an artificially low weight. Still, I guess at least I saw 132 this month! Definitely not worth a ticker move yet, though.

Back down to 132.5 for Thursday weigh in. I wonder what it will be for Friday. I can't sleep--thank you red wine--if I go past two glasses I always pay for it in the middle of the night. Argh.

Well, I didn't make my goal for April -- still at 145. I did see 144 one day!

May is a new month...

SuBee, how are you doing? I am having a difficult time staying on plan the last couple of days. I want to eat--and the bad stuff to boot. I am hoping these urges will pass but so far not.

Can I join you guys? I have a goal of seeing 130 this month! At least once! I was at 134.8 this morning, so I think it's doable. 130 is the lowest my weight has been as an adult, so that will be a real landmark for me.

Hi Kilketay, & welcome!

ThighsBeGone, I have switched into maintenance for a while. There is a long thread on why over in Maintainers - basically, my body just rebelled on me and said it was done for now. I have spent the past week maintaining between 133 & 135, on about 2700 calories a day - it's amazing. I may try to go ahead & lose the last few pounds in a month or two, but really, I'm happy with how I look, happy with how I feel, and my body was really starting to freak out from me keeping trying to force it into releasing that last little bit. And what is 130, anyway? It's a number.

Good luck w/ your goals this month, ladies!

SuBee, I have wondered if that is where I am too. I was 135 on the nose this morning.

Do you find you are just hungrier right now?

Trying to keep to 1600-1700 calories / day had me ready to chew my arm off, and I found myself binging about once a week for the last month. I decided control & maintenance was worth more than binging & trying to get rid of 5 more pounds.
