Default oh no, did it again

Hey everyone.
I messed up. When I go grocery shopping I'm not even tempted to buy junk food but if it's in front of me I can't say no. My husband went shopping today and bought brownie mix made it as soon as he got home. Of course I ate 2 pieces. They were small pieces but still not small enough and he was like "I bought it cause I thought you had learned to control yourself" Anyway, I haven't had time to get on the eliptical today so of course I'm feeling twice as bad about eating it. Oh well, I still have time to get on track.

OK, that's cruel that he said he did it for that reason. Sure we all need to learn - but a little help is great. We are all going to eat brownies again. Probably. 2 isn't all that bad to be honest! Move on.

P.S. Does your DH want you to be healthy and lose weight? Sometimes spouses resists it for various reasons.

serena - sorry about the hubby. ALl I can say is talk to him. I told my dh I was sick of the rabbit food jokes. He looked at me said sorry, but I was doing well (one of the few positive comments he has made during my journey).

Not many in my family are supportive, but I figured it is a life change for everyone and it will come when they are comfortable. Remember you are doing well, keep going!!

Default Monday

Hello everyone, well we weighed in today and I lost 2 lbs and DH lost 3. He's much better at drinking his water than I am, I'll try harder this week. I'll try to be more consistent with some exercise also.

Sunday menu: B: cereal L: none because I was shopping D: turkey w/ FF gravy & mash potatoes, cranberry S: angelfood cake w/ strawberries
Points: 20 Water: not much Exercise: 15 min. DDR Vitamins: no

Serena, sorry about DH comment, it sounds like a comment of someone who's jealous

Katie Bug: congrats on the 3 lb loss!! Good luck on eating out this week. One of my sisters is having pizza and cake for her son's birthday Tuesday night, I'm trying to decide whether to have 1 slice of each and count the points or whether to bring a 6" subway sub and try to pass on the cake. I don't know how my willpower will be. If it's homemade cake I'll probably cave in, it's its store bought I can maybe say no

Catherine way to go on the rollerskating! I never was very good at it although I bought a skecher pair on eBay not long ago thinking I would try it again...hasn't happened yet. I'm only about 30 minutes from Bridgeport! I used a light balsamic vinagrette to marinate my veggies for a wrap. I'm having them again this week, I can't wait!

I cleaned all candy out of my panty yesterday and am putting it in the candy dish in the conference room. I think I'll make a list of all the projects that need to be done in the house and try to tackle one each night. This will hopefully get me moving and keep my mind off food a little bit

Does anyone know how to sew? I bought a duvet for my bed and bought an extra one to try and make curtains out of. I have extremely limited sewing skills and had to have someone thread the bobbin when I sewed something years ago. I wanted any suggestions before I take a scissor to the new duvey

Have a great day everyone

The new avatar is from my last visit to Ireland when I had lost weight on Atkins almost 3 years ago, it's my goal to get back to that weight by the time we go back to Ireland this summer.

Default Case of the Mondays

Hi everyone,

Well I weighed in this weekend and I'm down another 2 pounds, which brings my total weight loss to 6.1 pounds (and counting).

I'm trying real hard to keep track of my points and write everything down, still gets hard sometimes and I want to eat so much candy, but I don't!!

Hope all are doing well. Take care.

Lisa

I am stuck at 199. It's kind of discouraging. Anyone have any ideas to help blast me to 195? My goal was 197 by Valentines Day, and 194 by the end of the month. I'm a slow loser. Any suggestions are welcome! What works for you?

Ok, I jsut started to post and now I hear baby awake. Gotta go get her.

Real quick, Maureen. Did they have sheet sets in the same material/matching material that your new duvet covers came in? Sheets would be ALOT easier to turn into curtains. What kind of top do you want - pocket, button, tab? If you used a sheet and just wanted a normal simple rod pocket curtain all you'd have to do turn over the top hem to fit the width of your rod and then hem it to the length you wanted. Maybe DIY (do it yourself) has info for making them.

I'll bbl...

Default Hey!

Hi guys,

Marine - I know what you mean about being stuck. I was there for about 3 months with working out and for some reason the weight wasn't going anywhere. I would suggest switching your exercise routine - maybe try to work out more or something like that. Also, try to write down exactly what you're eating. It helps me alot because that why I'm accountable and if I mess up, then I know exactly what I did wrong. Good luck!!!!

Lisa

Sarah - I think you just have to stick with it. AND I wouldn't exactly call you a SLOW LOSER!!! You've lost quite quickly actually and sometimes I think that includes water weight. Our bodies have to reset. The only thing I'd suggest is kicking up the exercise - or changing exercise routines. Don't eat too little. I've heard people actually say if they up theri calories for a couple days and then drop back down it kicks in again. Last time I lost weight I remember I'd sometimes go for a week without a change on the scale and then the next week lose 5-6. It was like I lost in chunks. I think hormones/water play a big part.

BTW Sarah - I posted a ? to you on the exercise forum after your post about Juggly Free Abs dvd. Did you get it as part of the whole Firm set? It's unavailable to individual sale until afte April 6th. I went ahead and pre-ordered it from Amazon. DH wants to do it too.

Catherine - congrats on 2 more pounds! Have you been skating again?

I've been pretty consistant so far with weight loss. This is the first time I haven't seen a HUGE drop the first couple weeks. I've lost 14 pounds since January 5th and it's been pretty even - 2-3 pounds each week.

Hi Everyone,
I've been MIA yet again But I have been sticking to my food and exercise plan. and at my Sat weigh in I was down another 2 pounds which put my Jan total loss at 19 lbs so I am pretty happy about that. I also increased the tension on my elliptical machine Yikes I felt like I was back at square one. It was a lot harder to get my mileage up But I have gone from having to talk myself into exercise to just assuming that I am going to do it ...huge deal for me. Yesterday was fantastic weather so I traded an hour on the elliptical for an hour and forty minute walk in the sunshine.

Everyone have a super Monday!!
Lori
