Sarah - I hear you on the information overload. I just went back today to what worked so great for me. Old fashioned calorie counting. I don't particularly "enjoy" it at the moment - but once I got in the habit and got the hang of it it got easier in the past. I'm tired of sitting here between 219-222. Yes, I did hit 219 a couple days ago, but this am I was back up to 222. I think I'm on somewhat of a platuea, because I'm not eating "bad", and I'm burning mega calories every day (6 days a week for sure) through exercise. But just in case I decided to go back to counting every bite, lick and taste. And there was this fab looking 3 layer chocolate-zuchinni cake with yummy looking frosting left over at work today and I walked right by it. That was my miracle of the day.

Hope all of you are having a good week so far.

I was thinking summertime would be easier to eat healthy in, but I don't think so, so far. How about you all? I know there's lots of fresh fruits and veggies, but I seem to be more tempted to snack in between my meals (I eat lots of little meals every 3 hours or so). Weird.

Hi ladies.

Sarah, big move coming up for you. I hope it goes smooth.
Nori: I'm glad you settled right into work, did you go back part time or full time?
Serena: Did you start WW yet?
Slimkim: TOM sucks! I'll probably get mine when I go on vacation if I know my luck.

I just realized it's been just the 5 of us for the last two weeks. Sorry I haven't posted since last week. My lack of dieting has prevented me from posting. I don't know what changed since Easter but it was downhill since then. Now I know I have no chance of losing weight before Ireland. I am such a loser.

Talk to you girls soon.

Mo

Nori - I know I should want lighter, fresher foods because it's summer, but I've noticed I seem a little hungrier! I've been eating a bowl of high fiber cereal at night to try and stay full. That is a total miracle walking away from the cake! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Mo-yes, our group has gotten smaller. I just like to think about how determined we are. And I'm betting Katie Bug made her goal, and is just getting ready for her first year at college! I sure wish Elizabeth and J would check in and let us know how they're doing, too.

Don't worry - we will all find our motivation again! Nori has found her's, and I'm slowly pulling mine back out. I've increased my water intake, started my vitamins again, and I'm avoiding cokes. All major steps!

Have a great day everyone!!!

OK, day 2 of counting calories - I'm on track. Once I do this for a week I think I'll be back in the groove of it.

Mo - all I can say is that life happens and I've noticed since joining here and from my own personal experiences that all weight-loss journeys, even the most successful ones, have hurdles. Don't be down on yourself, and don't stay away because of it. Heck, you're a lot smaller than when you started! And you're a beautiful person no matter what you weigh anyways!

I officially started WW again this morning.I went to the meeting last night and weighed in. 195 point something. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My scales have me weighing 199. It's only about 10:30 so I have a long day ahead of me yet. All I can think about it what to eat. I wish I didn't dislike fruits and vegetables as much as I do cause it wouldn't be so hard to fill the voids during the day. I have been forcing myself to eat a little bit of banana lately because my youngest is the only eater in the family so I give him banana everynow and then and have to eat what he doesn't. I remember eating bananas when I was a little girl and liking them. I don't know what has happened to me. My 2 older kids only want pop tarts, cookies, chips, goldfish, crackers, french fries, nuggets, fish sticks, rice and maybe a few more things and thats just put together. Both of them do not like all those things. If it weren't for the fact that happy meals only come with one toy I could buy just one happy meal cause my oldest only likes the fries and the middle only likes the nuggets.

well evening ladies!!! sorry i have not been around in last couple days.. we had my step son in from ohio he just went to the airport, and DH took our other DS for bowling practice..

Serena.. hooray somebody else on ww anyone else on ww?? I get 28 pts a day +35 fp... i do really good all day I just have to committ to no eating after 8 or 8:30 because that is when i snack and am a couch potato.... i will just fill up on water.. and go to be early if i have to... ooh i have a really good 2 pt pumpkin pie recipe if you want it..

Nori.. hey how is work anyways??? yes great willpower!!! i may have said.. "hmm zucchini is a vegetable and therefore 0 pts.." hahaha i was doing calorie counting but wasn't sure if i was eating the proper amount to lose.. so ww i know i lost on that b4...

Sarah.. i also drink tons of water usually 8 or more glasses a day.. and I started my vitamin too! I also am taking 1000 mg of vitamin c in addition i heard it can help with fat loss.. we'll see can't hurt...

Mo
~ Hi I was not journalling very well there for a few days too.. and then i start making thoughtless choices .. so I am there with you..but back on track this week.. so we'll beat this together..

My goal for this week.. wed to wed..is no eating after 8 pm.. nada, zilch, only water.. it will be hard cause our family loves to eat snacks..ice cream, popcorn and i will not be partaking.... I am stuffed just now I made seafood alfredo.. oooh yum... but come 9 pm i will probably be looking longingly at their popcorn... i am stronger than that tho.. i think i will go have a little now so i can say i had some..


well night all talk to ya later.. Kim

The big move is finally here! We got our pack and ship date from TMO, and tomorrow is my last day at work! I'm disconnecting the computer because we sold the table it sits on, so I won't be able to post until we get settled in South Carolina. So please don't think I've left or forgotten you all - as soon as I get to SC, I'll be catching up on everyone's posts and posting again!!!

Have a great rest of the summer, and see you again around August 10th!

Love,
Sarah

Today was my 35th bd and we went up to Mt. Rainier for a little hike. BUT, when we got up there there was still so much snow and I had only worn my running shoes. (Of course, DH was prepared with his hiking boots!) We had a nice picnic and a short little walk.





***BTW - I weighed in at 218.5 this AM!!! But, today I didn't eat so great. I didn't go way overboard, but I didn't have my 1,000 calorie deficit for sure. I discovered how to make homemade hot fudge sauce for my birthday ice cream.

Just wanted to pop in and say HELLO! Once again I find myself with lots of reading to do, so no personals for now ... we're headed to the water park and I'll try to be back later today to get them done.

Nori ::
HAPPY BIRTHDAY - sounds like you had an awesome day!! The pics of Mt. Ranier are beautiful but I especially like the ones of the family ... thanks for sharing them!
*eta* ... CONGRATS on making 218! ... I'm dealing with a major plateau that I'm hoping to break this week. Congrats again!

Default Back from MIA & new sign on

Hey gang, I say as I peek in. It is Erin and I know I have not been in for months. A lot has happened, and I have not been able to focus on much, even my weight loss. There is no easy way to say so here goes, my husband and I have separated and are moving on in the divorce process. After the shock and some tears I am OK, but it has taken me away from a lot of the "extras" in my life. My weight went back up to 295, but in the last few weeks I am got back on track and I am at 280.

I had to change a lot of my sign ons so I have become 125LESS on this site.

There are some positives in this (I am trying to make sure there will be a light at the end of the tunnel, sorry about the cliche). I have focused back on eating well and I am teaching my son the same. I joined a gym this weekend and I will be going in Monday to arrange my first assignment and learn about the equipment (I hope to do this Wed). I have been swimming. I still took my son to FL for one of the weddings and Disney World (and we had a blast). At this point I am waiting for the separation papers and on I go.

I have glanced back a bit (man, I got a lot of catch up!!, but you guys look great!! )

I am going to take the little guys out to the pool and pratice for his swimming lessons and try to get some laps in.

I missed you all and hope I can work my way back in.

Take care and I will be in touch.
E

Default Hi

Hi everyone. I have done really good the first few days back on WW until Friday and Saturday. My youngest's 1st birthday was this week and I baked the cake for the party and of course I have to lick the beeters. We had pizza and cake for the party and yes I had my share. Hopefully it won't reflect too bad on my weigh in, but next week will deffinately be better. No more birthdays until October and I'm hoping to look significantly better for my 30th.

Erin: Sorry to hear that your having to go through this. But we're all still here for support.

ERIN!!! I'm so happy you checked back in. Good for you for taking what life has thrown at you and making it into something good. I'm sorry about the stress of the last few months though. I've thought of you many times, so am so happy that you checked back in. Keep in touch.

STACYE - hi chicka! Glad you are doing well. Trying to stay cool, huh? It's hot here also, but not how y'all have it right now.

SERENA - you gotta eat at birthday parties! My family is celebrating my borthday tomorrow and I know there's going to be my favorite cake - chocolate zucchini bake with chocolate frosting. The cake is low fat. The frosting is NOT! But, I've been banking my calories so I can have a piece.

KIM - how's the weigh in go this am?

Hi Mo!
