@indiblue I own a manufacturing firm here. And I couldn't agree more about mankoot. Mangosteens are nature's cupcakes. Those suckers are tasty! How do you find India in comparison?

@jingabooty and @kifli. Welcome!

Hi! I'm backk. LOL It was a long few days with Halloween craziness with the kiddos. Phew..no candy eaten. Feeling good. I'm still wavering between 130.0 and 131.5. Just can't break 130!!

I've been feeling faint during my workouts for the past 2 weeks, like I'm not eating enough. That has never happened before and I had to stop in the middle yesterday b/c I just couldn't think straight. I don't get it, though. I eat clean 1500-1700 cals now and workout for an hour 3-5x a week. That is NOT crazy. I'm eating more than ever, and working out less frequently, but much more intensely, I guess. I just hate to add calories. Sigh.

Hey ladies!

So I was a little bad on Halloween. First time I've drank alcohol since July though, and I ate very little during the day to make room for chocolate and chips. I got another awful migrane (been getting these a lot) yesterday, which kept me in bed literally all day. Didn't work out, ate junk food, and slept a lot. This morning I felt much better and did day 9 of level 3 for the 30 Day Shred, so only one day left until I'm officially done the program, yahoo!

Even better, the scale told me 132.8 this morning. It's been sitting at 134.2 for ages now, and I sooo hope that this might be accurate. I'm half a pound until I'm considered a healthy BMI (which I still think is so absurd, since I don't feel overweight at all).

I also have two jobs at the moment, but this might be narrowed down to one after I tell my 1st job I got a 2nd one in about an hour, eep. Chocolate store and now a bakery - I just think it's magic that I've managed to lose any weight given those circumstances alone.

Welcome all the new 130's ladies, and congrats to all you girls in the 120's who still pop in once in a while. I dream of joining you shortly ^_^

Oh, and I made a mini goal a while ago to be 60kg by my next birthday (February 27th), when I get my new driver's license. That would be 132 lbs, so I'm essentially there.The weight on my last license says 66.4kg (146 lbs). To be under 60kg would be pretty awesome

Fayve- I am anxiously awaiting a new license, too. I need a new Military ID, which is what I use more and THAT one looks atrocious. It says "155" which was big, fat lie. LOL I'm waiitng to get my new one, but it should be very soon!

Thanks, Nelia for the welcome

ChickieChicks, do you think your lightheadedness could be from something else? Maybe ... not enough water during the day, too long since your last meal/snack (low blood sugar), not enough sleep, fighting off an illness? Of course, you may just be burning a ton of calories during your hour long workout, draining all your readily available energy stored. Perhaps a balanced snack right before working out and/or an energy drink during the workout would help? Hopefully, you'll figure it out. That lost dizzy feeling is always scary.

I had a good day today. I almost gave up at lunchtime when I decided to have a couple pieces of halloween candy. I had convinced myself I had "ruined everything" and that I might as well give up for the day. Unfortunately, I fight this mindset all too often. Instead of giving up, I put the calories into my food log and found out I was just fine calorie wise. I finished the day within my calorie range (just over 1400 cals). Exercise wise I walked for an hour this morning with my son, and this evening, my husband and I went to the gym. There I did a combination of walking, weights, and jump rope for a total of about 45 minutes. Tomorrow ... more fruits and veggies, more water, and a run!

I hope everyone is doing well.

Still here ladies; weight went up two pounds for no apparent reason. How weird is that? But I guess it happens all the time when you're a daily weigh-er. Anyway I guess I'll be here at least another week. Stay on plan, friends!

@Nelia, mmmm, Mangosteens! Had my first ones last year in Indonesia.

After a horrific weight gain from 105-165 (!!!!!!) in six months (don't ask...) I'm almost down to 135 and find I can run again, albeit slowly. The best exercise for me! But going from an A cup to a D+ cup, the front floppage prevented me until now. I'm taking my A cups and regular wardrobe out of mothballs -- I'm getting back into the zone.

For anyone who's weighed what many of you have....it must seem impossible to get to a weight so much higher. I always wondered how really big people got that way. Well, now I know! If I hadn't stopped, I'd be approaching 200.

@crimsons Aren't those suckers tasty?

I don't know if it's wrong that I laughed, but I do feel your pain re the "front floppage". And yeah. Insidious weight gain can quickly become monumental if we don't stay present!

Thank goodness for 3FC and a scale with diminishing returns!

Wow Crimsons that is crazy. I know you said 'don't ask' but, wow!
Was that just with food or did you have some medical thing?
