One ten - congrats :) You are just doing awesome!
Amethyst Jean - Yay!!! (I wasn't so lucky, lol)
Atmos - Hope you had a good day back at work. I love yellow curry. Haven't tried red. You got me wondering if I could make a low-calorie version. Yum!

I took the long road trip back home yesterday and ate the same limited foods as my husband and kids. I had a big gain over the week.

I made my first entry into my new calorie journal today, and made a simple meal plan with Healthy choice A or B :) Hopefully, that will help this month. Last month I ate healthy, but over the calorie limit on several occasions. Exercise was great. Now if I can get it all together!

Ate more lasagna when I was putting it away. I have to be honest or I'll never win this losing game. 134 this morning. Eating for no reason ugh

kifli 12-03-2014 01:27 PM

Amethyst Jean - Love your honesty :) Overeating is why I can't get out of the 130's (My honesty for the morning... hehe).

Down to 131 today. The weight I gained from last week is coming off quickly, thankfully! Feeling pretty happy about that. 2 days on plan, and today will make three :)

Down more than 2 lbs today to 131.6. Fasted yesterday and ate too much today 2000 cals. I was feeling weak. Didn't take my vitamins (B and D) and I also think I'm short on iron. My tracker tells me I am every day, although I have never tested positive for anemia. It also tells me I'm low on calcium but I've never heeded that either. Maybe time to start paying attention. I ate a lot of nuts and seeds at lest they have iron - still didn't meet the mark and did gain a lot of calories in the process.

kifli - Well done on the loss! Yellow Thai curry, or yellow Indian curry? Or some other yellow curry? I love curry so I'm curious. :)

Amethyst - I have trouble making my iron recommendations as well, but my bloodwork has always shown normal iron levels. I think spinach is a good source, and red meat if you eat that. I use MyFitnessPal and I know that a lot of entries disregard the iron and potassium contained in foods, so I don't follow it closely. I do recommend you get a good amount of calcium though, everyone loves strong bones!

Up to 140 today. Yikes! Please don't kick me out of the 130s thread, I plan to be back down soon. :) I think I had a big gain in water weight from a sudden increase in activity. I'm trying to add in more cross training to dance, which has involved some heavy lifting sessions and morning jog/walks. I definitely haven't eaten enough calories to gain almost 3 pounds this week.

Trying to remind myself it's just water, it obviously is, but I really never wanted to see that 14x on my scale again. Motivation to keep on track for sure!

Oh dear, does anyone know what happened to oneten? All her posts in this thread disappeared!

kifli 12-04-2014 06:01 PM

Atmos - Re: Oneten - They did disappear! I really enjoyed her posts! How does that happen? If you delete your account? She just congratulated me last night! I was hoping to hear from her again :( I'm going to miss her.

BTW we won't kick you out :) If I ever reach 120's I'll probably stay in here as well.
Re: Curry- I was speaking of Thai Curry. I can eat a very large bowl of it and I crave it. I have to be careful if I do eat it...no will power to stop! However I do love Indian food as well!

Down to 130.5 - This is a new low for me. Very exciting 129 is SO close (and hope it will come to me after all of this struggle to get to it!)

AmethystJean 12-04-2014 11:30 PM

Feeling better today. I ate a bunch of iron in that 2000 calories. Caloriecount still says I ate 15 of 18mg (?)

We'll never kick you out atmos. I like the suggestion to combine the 120s and 130s as well.

I hope oneten is not gone for good!

Today was good. I didn't eat enough to get my vitamins, so I know that is a problem, but I wasn't hungry and I was on the run and I went to the dentist so I didn't want to eat right before or after.

There was a slight up on the scale today but I weighed myself later, after my shake, so I'll look forward to tomorrow. Especially since I worked my butt off at the gym and came in at net -1400 cal today

kifli 12-05-2014 12:50 PM

Amethyst Jean - Good job yesterday :)

130 this morning. Pinching myself. I went down 3.5 pounds in 5 days, which is nothing short of a miracle for me.
Took measurements - It all came off of my thighs! (Rear and hips still the same :/)

AmethystJean 12-05-2014 10:43 PM

For every victory a little setback. Ate many snacks and drank too many of my calories. 1957. At least I burned 744. Anxious to see what the scale makes of that!

Whoohoo kifli! I've lost quite a bit this week too...I've been weighing myself way too often. I forget what my weekly weigh in was lol. I lost 1.4 today and 2 yesterday was up the day before and down the day before that. I think I'm looking at 4+ lbs! I'm working my *** off for it! Whoo let's do this

kifli 12-06-2014 10:44 PM

130 today too. Ate an extra mini taco and didn't exercise. TOM. I NEED to get more sleep tonight...it's throwing my whole routine off! Small gain tomorrow?
Keep at it, Amethyst!

kifli 12-07-2014 04:50 PM

Oh my gosh! Loss of .5 to land FINALLY in the 120's!!!!
I was expecting a .5 gain today!
So excited!
I can't blow it now!
Got to get a little lower to get well into it!
Aiming for 125 by the end of the month :)

AmethystJean 12-08-2014 03:22 PM

Way to go kifli
Had a terrible day Saturday 131.4 today but I am probably still bloated from the gluten I had on Sat. Also lack of sleep is not good for weight loss and finally no exercise and only did school work yesterday. So better today, right!
Also have a goal of 125 for the month!
Let's go!

kifli 12-08-2014 10:04 PM

Yes, Let's do it!
129 this morning.
Tomorrow's a new day.
Wishing you sleep and weight loss, Amethyst!

atmos 12-09-2014 11:19 AM

kifli - Well done!

Amethyst - There's always time to say I'm getting back on track right now. Hope your yesterday was better.

I haven't been doing well watching my calorie intake though I have done fairly well with my exercising. I really need to keep better track of my calories. Watching the scale go up while I was starting up lifting again really killed my spirits, even though it shouldn't have! So I'm staying off for a few more days and trying to count my calories better/choose better foods.
