The Valentine's candy has not been good! I swore I would throw it out or not eat it, but I found myself eating it to excess during my "haunting hours" which are typically between 3 and 5 pm for me. Rather than throw in the towel for the day, I decided to add up the calories and force myself to stay within my calorie range. Needless to say, chocolate calories do not go as far as a nutritious dinner. But I forced myself to call that dinner last night. Tough love! Maybe this will teach me to stop overindulging in empty calories.

On the bright side, I did lose 1 pound this week after staying the same for the past 3!!

Good morning. I've got nuthin'. These mornings just seem to slip by ... I fiddle with this and fiddle with that ... and really don't accomplish anything.

Thanks Danni!

Hmmm ... I've actually had a little drop this week. I'm lower than that number over there <<<< and will change it right smartly!
Now ... to keep my act together for a few more days in a row

Urgh. The past few days I've had to go to work early to make up hours from snow days last week, so I could barely eek out a mile of walking after hours before I was too tired to do anything but sit in a hot bath. I'm also getting a severe case of cabin fever--it would be so much easier to be active if the sidewalks were safe to walk on! When will it all end?!

Ok day and it's time for bed here. I had an extra cereal bar but at 115 cals it's hardly a biggie. That aside, it was my first half decent stab at being back on plan since my hols so I'm just pleased to have made it through the day with a deficit at the end. Gonna have to work at that exercise though (t'was ever thus with me).

Just found a channel on my tv that seems obsessed with running loads of US The Biggest Loser shows that I haven't seen before. Those shows kill my appetite so I always catch them when I can

I think I'm getting back into the groove better this week. I sent the last tempting bit of the Val-day candy to school with my son today, so that's gonna help. I have my meals planned for the next couple days which should also make things easier.
Congrats to those seeing losses, big or small. I'm just trying to get back to the lower 130's and stick there!

Good morning!

I am never hungry in the morning. In fact, I'm often faintly nauseous and don't eat for a little while. Today? Ravenous! I made and drank half my shake before I'd finished my first coffee. Weird!
Apparently something is using some calories

Ah ... the 120's ... so near and yet so far!

ty for the encouragement yesterday. it totally made my day

unfortunatly, im back up that .6 today. im a little discouraged cuz ive been tracking my calories. perhaps im eating too much? or too little? im aiming for about 1200 a day. plus i went to the gym yesterday. and the day before. *sigh* oh well, it will come off eventually. im determined.
susan i go through days like that too, but i usually force myself to eat something in the mornings cuz i need to energy to get through my school day. but its such a pain! lol

I have this all figured out 100percentME.

If the decimal points are in a downward direction, I've done fabulous work losing actual body fat. If they go up ... it's just fluid retention

But seriously ... if I'm on plan ... it's probably more right than wrong. .6 of a pound worth of water isn't really very much if you consider how big a quad or a glute is.

Hi all. February hasn't been the month I had hoped it would be. Sick kids, school volunteer stuff and kids vacation have really gotten me off track. Luckily weight is sort of staying the same give or take 2 pounds. I don't like that I making excuses but with my lifestyle my kids have to come first. I am going to try get some exercise in today and control my eating the best that I can. Monday is only a few days away and I can go back to my more structured routine and back on plan.

It seems like the winter months are harder for everyone. Come on spring!
