I was going through withdrawals! I hope you are all doing well. Today is my "Monday" but it feels little more relaxed. I was not feeling great until I was driving in to work today. I noticed the other day and even more this morning that I'm fitting in my vehicle seat for the first time in a long time. The back of my right thigh in particular used to creep/hang over onto the center of the bench seat and it would hurt with in min. Not bothering me any more!

Thanks for opening today's chat Usmcvet. That's a great NSV. One more victory to mark your fantastic weight loss journey.

I'm in a super mood this morning, as I've just realized I've dropped -3 lbs this past week. For me, this is wonderful..... I haven't had that much of a weight loss since WI #2. And I have been sticking to plan - went off a few weeks ago when I gave in to what I call my 'bar binge' on a day I was particularly tired and not feeling well (all plan appropriate low carb-fat-cals bars... but nevertheless a 'no-no'). My low weight losses were getting to me, despite my best efforts to keep my mood up. So today's been a great boost. It also allowed me to post another little 'clapper' in my signature. LOL. I love doing that! (Feels like getting a sticker for good work when I was a kid..... )

Thanks to everyone for just being here. I'm not sure I'd have hung in without having this board to come to for reinforcement. I haven't always said much recently, but I've been getting psychological support from your posts.

I sincerely hope everyone has a great 100% OP Day. I'm back to 100% again and plan on staying this way. I also plan to continue soaking myself in water daily, as I drank more water yesterday (really hot and humid here yesterday) than I ever have before and figure that probably helped today's weight loss as well.

Cheers for now.

Today is my regular WI day but I have to wait till Saturday. Decided to weigh myself at home just to see if I am doing okay since I slipped this weekend...looks like I am still down 3lbs. So great but kicking myself because it could be more if I stayed OP.

Traveling for company meeting next week. We can wear jeans and all mine are too baggy so looks like I need to head to the store to grab a few pairs.

Hope everyone has a great OP day...I know I will!

Default Good Morning All!

Its been so very busy on the home front, that sometimes staying OP is difficult (late dinners) and others its so convenient (grab and go snacks). We had ball games until 9pm last night and I stopped and got the kids Subway and went home and had my spinach leaves and grilled chix breast! Not that I couldn't have eaten at subway too, but it felt good to stick to my plan for the day.

Same crap this morning, got called in for an emergency around 6 and didn't get home until 710, the kids were crabby, running late etc... but I still made my omelet that I had planned and ate it in the car. What a site I was, eating out of my bowl driving the kids to school. Here's to a slower paced rest of the day. All I have left is 1 OR case, then house cleaning, a walk with my dog and coaching my daughters softball practice. My older son has a game an hour away, but darn it, I'm on call and can't go. Honestly, I'm kind of glad. It helps to slow things down a bit.

WI #2 tomorrow afternoon. I'm hoping it goes well. I'm feeling good and that is what matters, right?!
Have a great Hump Day to everyone!!

Shawna

BOAL you are too funny about the ex! Congratulations on your weight loss.


I check my weight every morning to gauge how well the Nova Cleanse is working and I can see Wonderland in the near future! Realistically I should be doing more toning (aka strength training and yoga) as most of my weight sits on my belly . Tonight is zumba night so I am going to go and dance some stress away and have fun!

Have a great OP day all
