I am very excited to report that at WI tonight I came in at 162.2 for a loss of 4.2 lbs!! I was disappointed with last week's result (-1.6 lbs), so I really wanted a big rebound week!! I haven't cheated at all yet and this past week I kept my restricteds to a minimum.
Hitting the 150s next week is actually within the realm of possibility!!!

My husband and I have separated and we are putting our house on the market this weekend. I'm putting myself on a strict budget so i can't afford to go to the IP clinic here. As much as my circumstances sound awful, this is really a good thing. We are getting along better and are working on our friendship and just being better parents. He's still supportive of my weight loss and goals for myself so it's nice to have my best friend back instead of a bickering husband. Who knows what the future might hold, but for right now, this is what is working for us. I'll weigh myself on Friday like usual, just at home from now on. I'm excited to see what this week has in store for me! :-) I'll post results friday! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
Thinking of you Sarah and sending you positive vibes and warm fuzzies!

Sarah, I am so glad to hear that positive attitude today. Strong women always survive! Hang in there.

Awesome! Now you must update your S/C thingy. You have 7 pounds to add to your total!

Sarah: I've been there. You sound so strong and positive. I'm keeping you in my prayers. My best friend and I joke about running an ambulence service for women going through separations and divorces. If there was ever a time to rely on the support of people that care about you, it's now. Glad you are decided to do IP alternative. Stay strong, sister!

Awesome!

I wanted to let you know, I generally weigh on Mondays as well as Wednesdays. Well...tonight I weighed and was down to 227.4. I generally drop between the two days so am thinking of changing my night to Wednesdays.

I am sooooo happy for you!! You make me believe I can do this. ♥

Just had my official weigh in for the week. Good and Bad! My loss for the week was 4.5 pounds!

Bad: That put me at exactly 200! I really wanted 199.9! Bummer. I'll be there next week ladies.

WOW! You must be so excited to be moving into the 150's! I hope it makes up for last weeks lower results.

Funny! Yes! I had forgotten about it and had removed my ticker too! I got so fed up with seeing the barely moving numbers for a while there I just decided to "forget about it!"

Thank you! That is sweet coming from someone as attractive as you are! I love the picture of you and your little girl! So PRECIOUS!

I am proud of what I have done, it is just annoying to stare at a ticker that wants to move like the tortoise in the race! I know I will get there, so did the tortoise It is just a slow reminder!

Great job! You really have been a success on this plan! I can't wait for the day I write "I am starting phase 4!".

OHHHH!! How, frustrating to be so close! I have to share that I too didn't go directly over 200. I had to stop on it then drop into the 190's. It is kind of like monopoly and praying you don't get the go to jail card I think! You WILL be there in the next day or so though! I can't wait to see your next WI results!

I am so glad to hear you are sticking with the plan. It will possibly bit a bit slower in results but you will feel a bit better too. And, with the added exercise and, unfortunately, added stress that may be a more helpful plan. You can always cut it back down to this over time by eliminating any one up to all 3 of the added group foods. So, sorry to hear about the split. I hope that whatever the future holds it is at least a happy supportive relationship between the two of you and a strong parenting plan
