Thumbs up

Jen - You wrote: "3/6/15 119.8 lbs ?? I have no idea why my weight is going down." All that exercise is catching up with you!

vabs - looks like moderate/low carb is working!

CrunchyMama - Cauliflower Bread Sticks sound delicious! How do you make them?

I love that your planning defeated even a sausage, mac, and cheese challenge - wow!

Fresh Feeling - Glad to hear the crosstrainer is making such a positive difference! You really conveyed the change in attitude it's brought about well - your happiness shines through!

Alexis - Yay, you! It's funny that there are so many ways to compliment someone on weight loss that sound kind of "iffy," but I hope they also bring a smile: "You are on a steady decline."

TS7P - Your body cannot deny a calorie deficit. Good going - that was quite a workout!

Dynxagain - I just have to repost what you wrote: "I am starting to see big chunks of fat gone...." :

Nickilaughs - So glad you're here! I see your brightening up other areas of 3fc with encouragement, and am super happy you're joining the Fine Feathered Friends. Love that you call Doritos your "arch nemesis," lol. Way to go with the weight loss!

Kisskiss - Omigosh, congrats on the upcoming marraige/elopement!! What exciting news! And it looks like you're well on your way to meeting your goal.

Thumbs up Hit Milestone of 30-pound Loss!

What the Scientific Method Diet (ScMD) has taught me this week is it's time for a change - again!

Although I did make weight, it was, again, by the skin of my teeth. I had to exercise, on the Official Weigh Day, for 3 & 1/2 hours on Friday AND do a total fast (except for one cup of coffee with one tablespoon heavy cream) on Thursday to make my half-pound goal of 111.0. It actually ended up being 110.8, which is beyond bizarre and like living in a whole different country for me. It's amazing! I was in the 111s for so long, I thought I'd never get out of there.

BUT...I do not want to work out like a maniac on the Official Weigh Day if I don't have to. AND I don't want to literally fast (not an intermittent fast) one day a week, though I will if I have to to make the half-pound loss for the week. SO...this week, I started my workouts on Monday, March 2. Next week, I'm starting my workouts on Sunday, March 8. Starting a day early may make a difference. Workouts are normally warming up for 15 minutes, jogging/walking or dancing or an exercise class or crosstrainer for 45 minutes or an hour, then a 15 minute cooldown.

AND...I found out that, because I now weigh less, I don't need to take in as many calories during the week as I did previously. I was on a 1200 x 7 = 8400 calories a week diet. Now I'm going to be on a 1100 x 7 = 7700 calories a week diet!

Truth be told, I don't know how many calories I eat on the weekends. I rely on what could be considered intermittent fasting five days a week (like a 23/24, lol) to get the half pound loss - and now have to add exercise for sure and certain, consairnit! I used to be able to hit it without exercising at all.

It's getting VERY, VERY difficult to lose weight, I must say. But the payoff is definitely worth it! And they - the weightloss payoffs/the hit goals - will no doubt just keep getting better and better all the way up to a safe BMI of 18.5! Thanks so much to everyone for their kind support - you are seriously helping to make this possible.

Weight: Official last Feb weigh-in: Friday, 2/27/15 - 111.4

3/01/15 - 117; 3/02 - 116.6; 3/03 - 114.3

3/4 - 113.6; 3/5 - 112.6

Official Weigh Day - Friday, March 6: 110.8

Measurement History

1/29/15

Chest: 34.25
Waist: 31
Hips: 35.5

2/20?/15

Chest: 33.5
Waist: 28.75
Hips: 34.5

For future fat calculation: Forearm: 8.25; wrist: 5.75

Still not sure of my fat percentage, but one reading said I hadn't changed at all, and still had a body fat percentage of 31%.

Measurements at last official weigh-in for February, 2/27/15:

Chest: 33.25
Waist: 29
Hips: 33 & 7/8 (33.87?)

3/6:

Chest: ~33.5
Waist: ~29
Hips: ~34.75

I think I must be varying where I measure slightly each time.

For posterity, when I feel like calculating a fat percentage: Forearm: 8.5; wrist: 5.5

Hunger, the breadsticks are probably very similar to your cauliflower pizza crust, just put mozzerella and cheddar cheeses on top with Italian seasoning instead of pizza toppings. Dipping it in marinara sauce is delicious.

I paired the sticks with portabella mushroom pizza (I'm in love with portabellas)

We went out to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday last night; we went to Warren's Seafood in Kittery, Maine. I was good and did the salad bar with shrimp cocktail, nothing fancy with heavy sauces, nothing fried.

And I weighed 158 this morning. Plus I had to pull my belt tighter on my blue jeans, so I must be losing inches somewhere. I just hope it's fat.

Morning weigh in: 157.5

This is good because I went off Phase 1 last night. My father-in-law made pasta carbonara last night; when he went out for ingredients, he bought whole wheat pasta and made a small portion just for me. So I ate a serving size of my whole wheat pasta carbonara with a large serving of salad. And my weight went down about 1/2 a pound since yesterday, so yay!

Today I plan on going shopping for snacks for the week. I'm buying almond butter, granny smith apples, cheddar cheese, a veggie, and possibly almond milk for my coffee.

Thanks, CrunchyMama. Love me some portabellas, too!

Congrats on the continuing "downward spiral"! And on your "non-scale victory [NSV]." I didn't know what that was until today.

You really have a nice F-I-L - very thoughtful, same as your approach to this weight loss.

Welcome to everyone who has joined the thread in the last couple days!

Kisskiss -- how exciting! I eloped, too.
That maintaining was a great payoff for your self control, if I may say so, TS7. Do you mind if I ask what the difference is between coming home and eating and coming home and binging? It seems an important distinction in several different areas: What causes one and not the other, for example. I'm going to sound like a nosy Parker, but did you have something to eat before you came home? Please feel free to ignore my questions completely.

And you eloped, also - scandalous!

Good work, everyone!
My first day of the week weight went up an entire pound from last week. Since I don't count calories on my two Up Days, I don't know what made the difference. It could have been the cookies for breakfast, or the doughnut, or the tuna sub with mayo.. anything, really!

3/8: 131.8 well that's a bummer

HW, I guess what I meant was that it was a victory that I neither ate more nor binged when I got home. I'd gone out to dinner with my friends and had plenty to eat, but it was all bites and scoops of shared plates, and that kind of eating -- "a little of this, a little of that" -- often leaves me unsatisfied (even though it adds up to plenty of food). I guess I just like the idea of a defined entree or "meal" better than bites. Add a couple glasses of wine, and when I come home I often go looking for more to eat -- sometimes just a little, but sometimes waaaay too much.

I get bogged down in semantics -- to me, a binge involves a whole lot of food consumed in a short period of time. Sometimes I binge, but more often I engage in what I think of as "compulsive eating" -- like buying something at the supermarket (donut, cookies) that I really shouldn't be eating, eating it in the car in the parking lot, and throwing away the wrapper before I go home -- which to me is not a binge due to the lower volume, but is clearly a weird, unhealthy thing to do.
