Hi all.

Well I'm just kind of hacked this morning. After a really good week (exercised every day, drank lots of water, balh blah blah) I have lost...NOTHING. And gained half a pound. This had better be PMS related. At my weight, it should be coming off pretty fast.

I don't know what has happned to me. I sort of "rested" at 238 - 242 for a WHILE and even kind of got really lazy and messed up quite a bit and then it seems like I wooshed up into the 260s overnight and I can't get back out again. SO FRUSTRATING!!!

Send me good vibes, y'all, I need them.

Brandy - I'm sending you some sunshine and positive vibes your way I wouldn't worry too much about the weight loss. It's too soon to tell. One of the things I've learned from my recovery group is to weigh myself once a month. At first I thought they were nuts, but I found it much easier than getting on the scale and watching the numbers yo-yo.

Raff, I agree with your adivce about not obsessing over the scales. I normally weigh myself once a week, but a few months ago I became obsessed and started weighing myself every day for some reason. I became depressed everytime the scale didn't move in the right direction or I'd gained ... but as we know this is quite natural. I'm now back to once a week and feeling much better about it. I'd like it to be once a month but I know what I'm like and I'd probably think that I could eat whatever I want for 3 weeks and then starve myself for 1 week in the hope of not gaining!!!

Brandy, just keep at it! I myself weighed in on Friday and haven't lost an ounce! I know why though ... didn't write anything down again and it's so easy to kid myself that I've eaten less than I really have! So fingers crossed for a better week this week

Hi Guys! I'm not really a scale obsesser, but I do weigh myself every day (one time, first thing in the morning, no one-and-off, no scooting the scale around, none of that ). If I don't, I sort of just go into denial and that's how I end up gaining 30 pounds in three months and not knowing just how it happened. At the same time, I don't expect the scale to move every day and the little ups and downs don't really get to me. I only really "count" losses from week to week, so if it's up and down all week but at the end of the week it's down - that's kind of what I take as "official." I understand that the daily ups and downs are controlled by like a million and one things. At the same time, at my weight - I should be losing pretty fast on a reasonable diet. I know that weight loss is slower as you get closer to your ideal weight but I am FAR FAR FAR from that. Blah blah blah, anyway, I'm not TOO down about it, it's just frustrating as I have so far to go.

Hi all. You guys must all be very busy!

I now have two whole weeks of daily (week day) exercise behind me and I'm so proud of myself. I've still only lost about two pounds in total and I have no clue why but I guess I'll just keep at it and working on it till something happens. I'm confused and sad about it but there's not a lot more I can do really.

Other than that, not much going on with me. Hope all is well with all of you guys!

Hi All! Still chugging along here. It's TOM so the past 2 weeks have been really tough with the food. I've had cravings for the oddes things and have been hungry all week. And I mean with a capital H.

Brandy - Great job with the exercise and the weight loss. Wish I would exercise but I'm so damn lazy. Have you thought about seeing a doctor? Maybe your thryoid is a little slow. Sometimes our bodies change and we can develope hypothyroidism.

Hope everyone else is doing ok.

Take care,
Raff

Hi Girls,

I'm still plugging away at it but not getting very far! Yet another week of staying the same! Raff, I know what it's like when TOM hits ... it was my turn last week and I couldn't stop picking!! At least it wasn't a gain!


Brandy, very impressed with your exercise routine ... I too wished that I could get motivated to do some. Raff, I'm like you when it comes to that department ... I need a good kick up the backside!!

Have a good week.

Nichola

Hi All!

Well, TOM FINALLY arrived. I was WAY late, but still having PMS symptoms so I think any weight loss was masked by water retention. Whew!

I'm still doing WATP, even tho I am vv tired and blah (thank you TOM) - it's one of those things: I KNOW that when I exercise, I don't get the horrible cramping and muscle pain that normally goes with PMS/TOM and yet often I slack and don't make myself do it. Then I DO exercise through and am once again amazed by how much better and more managable my symptoms are. I am so hard-headed!

Speaking of, it's time for me to go WATP now! Hope you all have a great day! Take care!

Oops

Looks like I fell off the 3FC wagon again.

Currently going through Uni **** at the mo, so I hope I can be forgiven. I complete my degree a month today!!!! I have one essay to write this weekend, and two exams the last week in May and THAT'S IT!

Of course the reality is that I'll still only be halfway on my quest to be a lawyer, but wow, hasn't time flown...and you've been here, with me, the whole time. I don't know whether I ever told you, but I've decided what law I want to specialise in (if I can get it)....I want to do mental health law. There aren't too many options though, so I may well end up doing divorces instead.

Won't have the graduation ceremony until I think February, as they have to hire I think the Symphony Hall in Birmingham to host it.

I've not been doing well diet-wise, with the stress of everything. In fact, I've gained so much I'm refusing to step on the scales. I went to the docs two weeks ago for my 6 month check....and he went mad at me about my weight gain (14lbs up since October) but understood why it's been hard. They had to increase my meds from twice a day to three times, because I'm not handling my diet the way I should (but told me I have to turn things around by August when I go back). With the stress I've had my first ever Psoriasis break out this week, and am itching so much I must look like I have fleas or something. Will head to the pharmacy tomorrow to see if I can get something without having to go see a doc (as I know too much sweet stuff, combined with diabetes and high glucose levels can cause psoriasis...and I don't want another lecture!).

Anyway I need to go get organised. Working in the law firm tomorrow (audio typing, woohoo )

Love to all
Jo

Still here. Chugging along. My foodplan is going well and I'm at 312 from 325 so I'm happy about that. I'm only weighing myself once a month so I won't know until June if I've lost anything else.

How is everyone else doing?

Jo - congratulations! I can remember when you were just THINKING about going back to get your degree and now you're done! That's wonderful!!! Now (putting on my stern lecture face), you take care of yourself! It's no good getting a degree and losing your health! TAKE CARE!

Raff, so glad things are going well for you!

Things are just not moving along at all for me. I need to take a break and get my head on, I feel like I can't organize myself to get going - which makes NO sense. Send me good weight loss head-getting-on-straight vibes PLEASE!

Default Just starting my crusade for the billionth time.

I am very happy to have found this forum. I am a 30-year-old with an office job (I think it is in the job description to eat at your desk for your whole 8-hour shift. Anyways, I have found some great advice in your column so far. I need to get myself on the top of my priority list in order to unload some of the 'junk in my trunk.'. It is a pleasure to be here.

Exclamation Im also a coffee junkie

I love coffee. Starbucks' Mocha Grandes haunt me but the sugar and fat and calories are HUMUNGOUS. I like sweetened coffee (with tons regular sugar, switched to Splenda...but can't seem to use just 1 package). Does anyone have any ideas on what are good sweeteners for coffee that are not quite as bad as my heaping sugar scoops? I am trying to wean myself down, because I am a cubicle coffee guzzler. Any ideas appreciated. Thank you.

I would try out Honey instead of Splenda. I think you can use less of it and it gives tea a whole other taste. Try it out and see what you think!
