I just wanted to pop my head in and say that you guys are doing great!

I'm glad there is a thread like this! Having already reached goal once and working to get a few pounds off to get back to it has a different feel to me than trying to lose the last few pounds when I was originally dieting, and this provides an outlet for that. Though I'm totally hoping I can keep the number I saw on the scale today and get to be a cheerleader!

Pre-trip weight 159...managed to get down to 150 before I left (took about a month).
Post trip weight 150.
Two weeks post trip? Still 150. At least I have not gained.
Still, I was hoping to be more like 148 by now. Goal? Right now the goal is 140 and we'll see from there. I maintained at 136-139 for a couple of years and felt really good there.

Today was POP for me, and I happily proved that I can be an actual grownup and have 1 glass of red wine with my dinner and not trot down the snacky garden path afterwards...

Ahhhhh, after 1 hour on the bike and 1 glass of wine and a perfectly healthy and scrumptuous day I feel goooood!

It's awesome that you didn't gain AT ALL on your trip. I applaud you!

Slow start for me - I am avoiding the scale because I have a nasty case of PMS.
Everything is tight...uggh.
On the bright side - I did the 30 day shred just now and i really didn't want to.
I had already talked myself out of it - but did it anyway.
Babysteps.
Very encouraging to see everyone doing so well - I will not give up.

Must account for a not op kinda night. Dinner at friends' ,multiple entrees, all eaten, smores(sss) and watermelon after.

Tomorrow, more friends over to our house for bbq and snacks. Let me remind myself that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.

well - today was NOT op for me... I became irritated with rude people and irrationally thought eating more (umm, and more CRAP) would make me feel better. That was a very PMS-y response on my part, but it's not time for that yet so I have no real excuse! At least I avoided my co-worker's brownies. She was really nice about it - didn't wave them in my face, just mentioned they were there and dropped the subject.

Big congrats to those who were on track today, and for those like me who slipped, let's kick butt tomorrow! I'm ready to get back down in the 120's!

Great job guys! Sometimes its POP, and sometimes it's not quite, but a little better than we might have done back in the old days. Each choice counts, so lots of pats on the back for the positive choices!

I did end up eating at the meeting, but I had a green salad, watermelon, and a serving of green chile stew (chicken, veggies, green chile)....mmmmm.....now it's starting to feel like fall.

Count me in, too. Lately I've been weighing in at 127, but the scale read 129 today. Eek. I would like to reach 125 lbs. (despite my ticker, I maintained at 120 for almost a year). 120 is unrealistic for me now, but 125 is my new goal.

Today has been very on plan so far. I'm making good choices.

Everyone hang in there!!!

TGIF everyone! Let's have a great weekend! I've eaten breakfast and am preparing to go for a run then do yard work all day (ugh).

My meals are all planned out and my husband even let me plan his meals for the day, so he'll actually be eating vegetables at various points (*gasp*!). His usual Friday night dinner is 3 different kinds of meat followed by ice cream, I kid you not.

Midwife -- good luck at your 5k tomorrow!

I am back to 120.5, a little more than 5 pounds to lose to get to redline! (and another 2 or 3 to be back to comfortably mid-range). Now, I just have to survive the weekend, that's the tough part for me. This morning I printed out an unflattering photo of a significantly obese person (no offense intended to anyone) to post on my fridge along with the words: STOP EATING THAT JUNK FOOD! Hopefully that will keep my hand out of the chips (and bagels, etc)!

Since it's a 3 day weekend, maybe I can slip in two long runs instead of my usual one. That should help.

Hi 19!!!

Jo, if cows eat grass the eating cows is like eating grass=veggies! Right?

Weekends are tough for me, too, MBN. Well, specifically Saturdays are tough for me. But I'm feeling strong.

Like a dork, I've been weighing after my runs all this week. Today I am not running cause I want it to be a nonrun day in preparation to kick butt with my 5K tomorrow. So the scale said 161. I know better than to weigh in an inconsistent fashion! My next postrun, first am weigh in will be Sunday. That is some motivation to eat on plan Saturday!

Today I have the joy of being at a hospital (not MY hospital) all day for some tests for my 14 yo DS. I'm packing some food....I'll not be caught starving without appropriate choices, cause that is disaster for me.

I had problems yesterday with the darn candy dish at the office. Today I vow to stay away from it.

TGIF... sort of! The long weekend could be treacherous in terms of food choices!
