Well, my scale said 141.2 the first 2 times I stepped on it, and then 140.8 the third time (and a 4th time to check), so I'll go with that . It is crazy what being super strict for a few days can do! I have been really good about planning out my food and going to the gym every day this week, and the results show. I am trying to be as good as possible because we do have some friends coming into town this weekend, so I know there will be a few "cheat" meals. I just don't want to ruin the hard work I've put in, so hopefully only a few bad bites here and there.

Happy Thursday all!

I was actually optimistic about today's weigh-in because I was pretty darn good yesterday... of course I am well aware that a weigh in is not a reflection of just the previous day's food, and so it goes. Up. Again. Which can trigger a binge for me, especially when combined with stress and fatigue. I am trying to stay strong today!

haha I do that too sometimes if I am looking for a certain number, sometimes even just a 0.2 pound loss. Congrats on your recent downward movement!

Hi Same7 - I am struggling with binge-triggers as well. It has been bad recently. Seems like I can be strict for about 4 weeks until I start dealing with huge compulsions to binge eat again. It's very frustrating. For me, usually if I make sure I am full on healthy foods first I have less desire to gorge on simple carbs... but that being said I had a disaster yesterday. I cut myself off early and didn't eat again (any of my healthy planned meals!) so calorically it was not bad, but ick such an unhealthy day overall. I feel for you. Stay strong! :

I saw 142.8 flash on my scale a couple of days ago but it is proving to be elusive to get below 143 pounds. I'm going to buckle down again today and see if I can get this scale moving.

WAHOOOOOO!!!! Broke 140! Too bad I'm going to ruin it w/ mexican food tonight. It is ok though, I'm willing to take the hit. I have been fantasizing about it for weeks and with friends in town, I'm ok with it. I will split something w/ the BF and not get any alcohol, and limit the chips, so I should be good.

Have a great weekend all!

142 pounds is symbolic to me (first max weight I saw when I started putting on weight eight years ago) so I am psychotically devoted to being below that number again .... I'm within striking distance.

You can do it! My scale went up, too, and it's a freak out. But I like what Emma said about getting in our nutrients, so we won't be so tempted to binge. Protein maybe can help stave off some hunger pangs, too.

It's all a learning process, and we just keep getting better and better!

"Psychotically devoted" - I love that phrase! That would perfectly describe how serious I am about not gaining any appreciable amount of weight ever again. There's no use in it. It's the opposite of what I want. There are myriad benefits to being skinny, and I love all of them. And the reverse is also true. So I'm with you, Emma, in your psychotic devotion!

Exclamation

STARTED 1200 CALORIE A DAY DIET

6/1 - 108.45
6/2 - 108.75
6/3 - 108.35
6/4 - 107.9
6/5 - 107.45
6/6 - Total fast - gave up caffeinated coffee last week, so just had unlimited water and herbal tea.

Official weigh-in, Sunday, June 7: 106.7

6/8 - 110.05
6/9 - 109.65
6/10 - 108.2
6/11 - 107.7
6/12 - 108.15 (realized later in the evening that I actually had 200 more calories left - YIPPEE! - and celebrated with an open-faced salmon-salad sandwich - no mayo, just a little lemon juice, on Ezekiel sesame bread. YUM! )

Would like to make 106.6 by Sunday morning, but modified my diet to include one up day, which was last Sunday, so that may have skewed things a bit. We'll see...

Happy June!

I'm not putting a goal other than to stay at 120 lbs on my heavier scale. I would be thrilled to maintain at aything under 120, like 118-119

Everyone is making great progress!

6/1 119.9 lbs
6/2 120.4 lbs 17,000 steps
6/3 119.6 lbs 18,000 steps
6/4 120.4 lbs ??
6/5 120.5 lbs time of themonth...
6/6 120.6 lbs (LS) ran 6 miles
6/7 119.8 lbs (LS)
6/8 120.8 lbs
6/9 120.6 lbs
6/10 119.7 lbs
6/11 119.7 lbs
6/12 119.7 lbs
6/13 118.8 lbs (LS)

This is the longest I have been under 120 recently. Whoo hoo.

I'm changing my goal slightly. I used to be 25/35 and am now closer to 26/36 so I'm hoping to lose an inch regardless of the scale. That should be good enough.

Nice job ladies! It's nice to see everyone is getting closer to their goals.
