Good Morning Everyone. Since my coach is out until next week, I had my own WI at the house. My scale showed another 5 lbs gone and another notch on the belt this morning. Feeling really good heading into the VERY LONG weekend. Stay strong out there!!! :D

ragdoll74 12-21-2012 08:37 AM

Nice weigh in A1Texan!:cb:

Good morning everyone! Was so happy to slip into a size 8 jeans this morning and a medium sweater. I thought the size 8's wouldn't be for a couple weeks yet. The sizes seem to be going down a lot faster than the lbs for me now. I also need my brain to catch up to my size. =) I keep thinking I am a larger size than I really am.

bubbleblower 12-21-2012 08:47 AM

Nice work, A1Texan and Ragdoll!! I'm still not feeling like I've lost much - although the scale disagrees! I guess that's because my first two weeks have really just put me back to what had been my 'normal' weight for the last several years. From here on, I'm hoping to start noticing more differences in clothing and the way I feel.

I'm all checked in for our flight tomorrow and can't wait to be back outside in the sun. I feel so much healthier when I can be outside and on, in, or underwater!! All my food and supplements are packed, so I'm ready to go! (It could be an interesting discussion with Customs! :lol: )

Sammie12 12-21-2012 09:14 AM

Good Morning everyone so glad it's friday. It is pouring out here so I'm debating if I am going shopping now or later on. Congrats Texan on your weight loss & also to Ragdoll on your smaller sizes.. I have already gone down 1 size in pants but looking forward to it happening faster.

Good luck with Customs Bubbleblower. The TSA agents were not happy with me on my last trip, so I drank my chocolate shake there in line before heading through. I wasn't about to throw it away....that thing cost me $5.00 LOL

Yesterday was OP for me. I'm having my OP breakfast now. I made my dinner salad too large, so it is in the refrigerator for dinner. I'm getting a little nervous about being at my parent's house for so long while trying to stay OP. They've noticed I have lost weight, however, I just told them I was eating tons of protein and vegetables and left it at that. I've failed at enough weight loss attempts that I don't want to go in to diet plan specifics with them until I maintain my weight loss for a while. We'll see how this all goes.

Today's plan - lunch - leftover salad from last night, snack late afternoon, broccoli, salad, and baked fish for dinner

Still have some anxiety about being late on my writing deadline and home to knock out a bunch today. Fingers crossed I stay focused and get it done so I can feel like I accomplished something.

A1Texan, WOO HOOO! Great loss!

NinjaNurse, great job for getting through a rough trip to a restaurant. It won't always be so bad! It takes some getting used to what places you can go and learning where will be helpful and where you will pay a bunch for very little to eat. (I've been in the $30 mushroom + burger situation too.)

RagDoll74, size 8! Wow!!!

PepperTown 12-21-2012 10:21 AM

Well, I'm alive! I'm still here! I survived the end of the world!!!
Good morning from Canada :-) Started snowing here yesterday and this morning my hubby snowplowed almost 1 foot of snow and it's still snowing!!!
This morning, after my shower, I put on some pants I hadn't worn in awhile. They fell off me!!! Now I'm down to 2 pairs of pants, plus the new ones I bought yesterday which are 3 sizes smaller than what I normally buy!!!
Very proud of myself, despite the fact that my scale says I didn't lose weight, but my mirror and my clothes says I did :-)
Very happy today :-D

I read on an old thread that somebody just packed the packets IN THE BOXES and it made explaining IP foods at customs go much smoother...I think it was in Mexico.

Great work Pepper. I can't wait until I can get into smaller pants. I dream of the day :)

It won't take long! Mine took a little longer than some people. It is just how I carry my weight. But, really! It won't. And look at the jump-start you have on all of the New Years dieters!

Yeah, I packed the RTDs in a checked bag and sealed them in Zip-lock bags just in case! My supplements are all in the original bottles in my carry-on, along with my IP packets and bars. Thank goodness we leave clothing and dive/photo gear in the islands so I have plenty of room for my shaker bottle and food! :lol: Customs entry on the other end may be the interesting part - although I've known people to bring in suitcases full of beer, wine, and assorted food items. :o

Good Morning Everyone!

I haven't been on again for a while. I have been sick and we have two new puppies that are taking up a ton of time...it is like having twin toddlers in the house. Our family has been staying on plan even though we have all been/are sick and are looking forward to starting the new year thinner and healthier. TGIF.

Way to go size 8's!!!! I seem to have stalled on the sizes but the weight keeps falling off so I'll just wait for everything to redistribute :) I know what you mean about thinking you are bigger than you are, all I still see are fat thighs when I look in the mirror, but I know that 6 months ago I could barely get size 12's up over my knees!

I'm in MA too (southeastern), the wind and rain have been nutty today :)

You are doing so well on the diet, it took me 54 pounds lost before I really felt comfortable discussing the specifics of the diet with people other than close friends and family. Now I yap about it all the time :) At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what other people think of my diet choice, it works, I know it works, and if one person doesn't want to be supportive I have 10 others who do :) Good luck on your writing!

Awesome NSV with the pants!!! I love that feeling when you slide into something you *never* thought you'd fit into!

NinjaNurse - you did SO GOOD with the crappy restaurant situation, the first time is always super hard but it does get easier. And now you know where to find the "emergency" backup supplies at the drugstore :)

I was wondering about you! Hope you are feeling better. :)

I have been more of a lurker these days because I have been so busy with kids and parties and holiday FUN. Officially on vacation tomorrow, not today because today is a clean the house and get ready for the in-laws day!!! I am doing OK in maintenance. The first week was easy but this week I have been eating more of the Christmas goodies and feeling HORRIBLE! I gained 2 pounds once I increased my exercise but have since lost those 2 + 1 more since.
