129 again today.

Atmos - I was experiencing the same thing. I was working out and getting fit, losing some inches, but not weight. I took a break this week, concentrated on calorie intake, then the weight started dropping like crazy. I'm thinking about starting up some exercise again b/c I don't want to be mushy, but if the weight stalls again, I'll have to rethink. Finding the balance is hard.

The scale went up this morning 133.4 and is 132.4 this evening. That's a good sign because I'm usually up in the evening. So tomorrow bodes well. I'm chalking this morning up to natural fluctuation or the gluten that is still killing my insides. I can't wait to detox I need it gone.
Today I ate 1000-1200 and was very active. So I'm very hopeful for the scale in the morning. Just need to get over the urge to snack. Going to be strict the next two days because Friday is work xmas party and I will be indulging.

kifli - It is definitely hard to balance our desire to lose weight with the benefits of exercise and inch losses! I need to keep in mind that some of the weight gain must be from getting back into a full-blown exercise regime after a big lull. But some of it is definitely not tracking my diet as well. I'm just going to keep up the exercise, try to get back on the straight and narrow regarding diet, and let the scale do what it will. It'll go down eventually.

Amethyst - Gluten allergies are no joke. My boyfriend has one, and truthfully I think I bug him too much to be careful about what he is eating. :) But I've been working hard on learning gluten free cooking/baking for him, so he appreciates where I'm coming from (and the food).

This morning I was 139.8. Officially away from seeing that 1-4 on my scale again, but I really need to be more careful about what I'm eating if I'm ever going to make it to the 120s where I'd ultimately like to be. I just hate seeing my mushy legs in that dance mirror. It's also a slippery slope to maintain my initial weight loss, as I was around 160 after college several years ago.

Down a half pound to 128.5.
Had a great workout last night (first one in the last 10 days). Got REALLY hungry afterward, so ate a banana and a small cookie for a total calorie intake of 1235 yesterday. Exercising and eating go hand-in-hand for me :/ I just feel so much better (stronger and less jiggly) when I exercise. I'm going to work VERY hard to stay at my calorie range AND exercise. I don't mind a slower loss, as long as I'm still losing! I worry about my skin with rapid loss.

Sounds like a good plan, Atmos. I totally hear what you are saying and can so relate! Mushy legs (for me belly) = NO GOOD! Oh, and congrats on getting back into the 130's :)

Amethyst - Good Job, yesterday. I love Christmas parties! Hope you can stay OP until then :)

AmethystJean 12-10-2014 02:04 PM

Atmos, so nice of you to do that for your bf. It really does mean a lot when people consider our food allergies.

So not on track today. Woke up when I was supposed to be at work and didn't eat breakfast and ended up bingeing on cookies at work.

On the bright side new low of 130.0 today.....not for long with that behaviour but I saw it!

kifli 12-11-2014 01:32 PM

Down 1/2 pound to 128. Performed some light exercise last night. Got terrible sleep. I have been drinking coffee (Starbucks Mocha light) and I think it stays in my system for a long time (I could be wrong). My loss has slowed down, but it is still moving so I will be patient :/ (or try). Can't wait to see 125...I think that will make me feel better in general. My body is looking a little better,but not too much... it has a long way to go!

Amethyst - Congrats on your new low (even if it's short-lived)! So nice to see when that happens. Sorry you have to watch your food intake with the allergies. I have a good friend with two daughters with Celiac and they are so careful...yet still manage occasionally to get gluten in foods that are supposed to be 'free' from lack of consideration/care/understanding on others' parts. No fun.

kifli - Well done on your losses! I'm dreaming of the day I see 1-2 on my scale again, especially now that I'm just struggling to see 1-3. I didn't weigh myself this morning, I'm going to pretend for a few more days that I'm in the 130s and try to eat healthfully before I weigh again. I agree that a slower loss but less jiggly is a good way to go.

Amethyst - Congrats on your new low! Something I am aspiring to. Weight loss isn't linear even when you're completely following your program to perfection, so try not to feel too down if the scale goes back up a touch. The overall trend is the most important.

AmethystJean 12-11-2014 08:06 PM

131.8 today. I know I didn't eat enough for it go to up that much in one day so I know it is bloat. Plus I can virtually feel the wheat sitting like a brick in my abdomen. I hope to break 130 this week but I don't know how long it will take to detox from this (and the Christmas party dinner tomorrow is probably bad news as it is an Italian restaurant)

Just checking in on you guys. :) looks like everyone is doing pretty well right now.

I feel you on the Christmas party woes, Amethyst. Mine is this Sunday and they sent out the menu a couple days ago. EVERYTHING on the menu for our party is FRIED - chicken tenders, french fries, fried pickles, fried cheese, fried meatballs. Literally not a single fruit or veggie or lean protein in sight.

I emailed the person asking for headcounts and said "Look, I'm coming, but I literally can't eat any of that, so don't include me in the count for food."

139 and thrilled to be here

atmos 12-12-2014 11:32 AM

Amethyst - The water weight rebound is always hard to put into perspective. Try your best to stay on track but also enjoy your Christmas party!

underanalysis - Good to see you again and looks like you've been doing well too! That Christmas party menu is...ridiculous. We always have plenty of crap at our company party, but there's always veggies and such too.

skittles - Welcome to the 130s!

I was still at 139.8 this morning. I'll take it with how I've been eating. It's so frustrating, yet at the same time my desire to be healthier and thinner isn't overcoming my desire to feel better via food. I did go for a "run" this morning, in quotes because it's more of a walk/jog.

Our company Christmas shindig is tonight, but I'll quit pretending I'm a poor grad school student and be skipping out on the free food for pho with my boyfriend. It'll be more enjoyable/satisfying than picking at the buffet anyway. I have another Christmas party tomorrow after I ring handbells. I'm not sure how I'll fit into my dress pants for my conference right after the New Year...

Up one pound to 129.
I decided to take a "Free" Day yesterday, and ate everything and anything I wanted. I went to lunch with a friend and had Thai curry over coconut basmati rice, Cashew Crackle (a.k.a. Christmas crack b/c it's pretty addicting), and fishsticks with a honey, butter corn muffin, & salad with my kiddos. Probably close to a 2000 calorie day. Did a hard work out afterward, but knew the scale would be up and was okay with that.
I was on plan at or below 1200 calories for the last 10days :)
My plan is to cut calories the next 3 days, then stay on plan until Christmas (which will be my next free day).

Skittles - Nice to have you here! Congratulations :)

Underanalysis - Fried is a very bad word. It's hard to satisfy everyone at a Christmas Party, but that menu is ridiculous! Good for you for skipping out. And nice to hear from you :)

Amethyst - Have a great evening!

Atmos - Thank you! Getting into the 130s feels so good once you make it. It will 'stick' soon enough :)

Hello all, I am new to this thread.
I saw 129 a few days but the scale has been bouncing between 130-131.
I'll check my weight Monday morning, and will try to be good this weekend.
Heading to a few bars so my plan is to limit myself to two white wines per evening, and alternate with water.

kifli 12-12-2014 12:54 PM

Happy Holidays - Welcome! The more, the merrier! We were considering combining the 120's and 130's threads together, so you would fit right in :) Have a great evening!

AmethystJean 12-13-2014 08:32 PM

Party was as bad as expected. Pizza was delicious but of course I'm paying for it. Today I'm eating as a break from writing my final paper, so that sucks.
132.4 not as high as I expected consdering.

Strict diet from here through Christmas. One treat for Christmas (either I'm going to make shortbread or I'm going to have my grandmother's pb choc rice crispy squares).
