Happy Monday!!!

Hoping everyone's week starts off well! Hubby and I both conked out early last night (we're usually night owls but were both out cold before 11pm), and the littlest climbed into bed with us around 4 this morning. He tends to poke me in the nose when he sleeps, so I was wide awake at 6:30 and am now enjoying a hot cup of black coffee with ABSOLUTE SILENCE in the house The chores didn't get finished last night but the sleep was SO worth it! Actually thinking about going for a little walk before the house starts waking up

That's what I'm doing right now! My kids go back to school on Wednesday, so my early mornings will be filled with chaos and whining!

Well, it's WI day for me. I have a new coach, mine left my clinic. She's been sitting in on my WIs for the last two weeks and seems very nice.

Good morning everyone. Just a word of advice, eat your veggies!!! I usually have a hard time eating right on the weekends, like I'm sure some of you do too. I've been stuck on 157.4 lbs all weekend. But, when thinking of what I've eaten, I remember that I had not eaten any veggies. I guess this should be a bonk on my head telling me how important they really are.

Today is a new week though. I want to be in the 140s by the middle of next week.

Good morning all, I didn't get to check in on the threads at all this weekend, it was a busy one. Hope everyone had a great one. I have also been glued to the TV watching the olympics. USA is kicking major butt! Love it. Have a great day all. BTW Vet it is good to see you back from your trip with your son.

No veggies? For shame! You are right. Everything on the protocol sheet is important and contributes our success. Saturday we ate out for lunch. I had a grilled shrimp salad that consisted of shrimp and lettuce w/ a couple of slices of purple onion. So, I ate my 4 cups of veggies for dinner. It took forever to eat, but I got those buggers in. I eat most of my veggies raw, so there was a huge pile on my plate.

Last night I had roasted okra. Two cups measured raw isn't too daunting when you roast it.

Good luck to you on getting to the 140s. I'm sure you'll get there!

This is exactly what I needed to hear. Slight tender whoop and motivation.

NSV? I have gotten a couple of people onto IP. I wish they had a Bring A Friend discount. After one of my friends starts this week, that will be 3 I've brought into the program. It makes me feel really good when people are really interested to hear about this program.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Happy Monday. to our Canadian friends - I know its a holiday for you - hope you are enjoying it!

Completely agree about the weekends - I have a hard time as well - not really hard - I'm just so busy I forget to eat!

I'm stuck at 146.x...today it's 146.6... and want to break through 145 before my weigh in on Thursday. Have to be super duper focused this week! water veggies water veggies!

I hope everyone has a great day.

Renee

Morning peeps! Had a busy weekend. WI was 1.5 pounds. Not much but going the correct direction anyway. SLOWLY! But clothes continuing to "grow" as I shrink. Bit by bit. I hopped on the home scale this AM. It says I am exactly 20 from goal. Need to update my ticker, and get the clinic scale to agree with the home scale!

I meant to post this here but posted in yesterday's thread.

We started each day with the Polar Bear Swim at 0630, brrrrr. We walked every where, that used to be my biggest everyday issue. The walk to the dining hall was half a mile each way and required a slow pace and three or four stops along the way. Not this year! Whoooooo Hoooooo. One of the other dads noticed and so did many of the staff which was a great feeling.

The biggest accomplishment for me was a three mile hike with Jack and the other Webelo II's. My knees hurt for days but I had no problem keeping up with the ten and eleven year olds.

This was my reward, a photo with Jack.


The view was nice too.





And NSV this morning. My wife initiated cookie baking, whoo hoo! What a way to start the day!

Good morning! This was a busy weekend for me. Helped my sister paint her new place all weekend. I'm glad to be at work and to just sit at my desk most of the day.

My house is a mess since I wasnt there to do the weekend cleaning. I mistakenly thought my husband would do some cleaning while I was out of the house. I didn't actually ask him to do chores, so nothing happened.

I stayed on plan though! My house may be a mess, but I am 2 lbs lighter this week!

Good morning everyone!! I am back from camping, Thank goodness!!
I am so burnt its not even funny. It hurts to move my arms up and down. It's terrible.

We had a good time up until Saturday night. We went eat at a seafood buffet and I pretty much lost it. I started off good, eating just boiled shrimp, but that didnt last long. So I am confessing here, I CHEATED! I felt so bad after, emotionally and physically. I literally felt sick to my stomach and I sure do not miss that feeling at all. I never want to feel that way again, so lesson learned. I am back being OP 100%. Hopefully the scale tomorrow is not THAT mean to me.

I, too, have the same problem on the weekends. My problem is that I wait too long to eat between meals. Like I will go 6-7 hours without eating then try to get in all my food at one time and that is hard. I am still working on that.

hope you all have an OP day. I wish I could go hide in a corner and go to sleep.

What?? Back to school already! Oh my! We don't start until the end of the month... thank goodness. (Note to self... get off your a$$ and start that curriculum work you've been putting off. lol)
Good luck with your new coach. I don't think I'll go back to my clinic when I do my reboot. Mine just didn't really seem to care. When I hit goal she never even suggested coming back to check in... she was like "See ya, have a nice life." Oh well, I hope you have better luck.

I know it gets tough when the scale stalls... but hold the course, you'll get there. I also had trouble getting all my veggies in as I only really like a few of them, but then I tried the adding spinach to my night time chocolate shake. No one could have been more skeptical about the taste and texture than me, but truly you can't even taste it. Have you tried it yet? Good luck with the 140's... you'll get there!

Have you asked at your clinic? I know that many give you a free box of product for each new enrollee. It's certainly worth mentioning!

Hang in there... You've been doing a great job with the program. As you get closer to goal, it comes off s l o w e r..... Slow and steady wins the race!

[B]VET!! Welcome back! [B] Great pics! I loved going to GS camp with my baby.... enjoy every day. Before you know it he'll be off to college. Sounds like your wife missed you! You asked for a pic in my 'little black dress' from the wedding last weekend.... I've been waiting for your return to post it.
