Tonight is weigh in. I've been horrible this week. We went out saturday night and saw a movie and went to Ruby Tuesdays. I got one of their Turkey burgers. Sounds healthy right, have you seen the size of those things. It was huge. I didn't eat all of it but the fries were too good to pass on. Not to mention all the junk I"ve eat this week. I also forgot to drink my water on one of the days. I really dread tonight. Not just the weigh in part but I'm due to pay some money again this time. I usually get the 6 weeks for $50. They have a better deal I think it's like $110 for the remainder of the year but I don't really have that much all at once to pay. Anyway, the holidays are fast approaching what to do what to do. I have trouble saying no to sweets now. I don't know what I'm gonna do when the holidays get here.

Post hello

Well, I have weighed myself, I was about back to where I started. I do not deal with stress real well. Food just seems to go along with it. I need to work on changing that. Anyways, I have had a kidney and a bladder infection this week. I was sick as a dog. I did lose 12 pounds with it, but I have already started putting it back on. Just another one of those mexican jumping bean weight losses.

Serena, I went to Ruby Tuesday's last week but I was not as good as you! I turned down the Turkey mushroom burger for the real thing. I did enjoy it though. Was their Turkey burger good? I just enjoy food too much, I guess.

Kim, I need to set small goals like you do. They just never seem to last.

Nori, Glad to hear from you

Mo, Where are you? How are you doing on the smoking? It's hard isn't it?

Well, with the Biggest Loser on that does give me a little bit more inspiration. Not sure why but it does. Oh well! I am going to go for now. Later Gators

Well, I feel like I've lost weight this week and I've been good...BUT I broke my scale a few days ago! I'm trying to see how long I can go w/o breaking down and buying one. As long as I'm sticking to plan I'm going to try to leave the scale thing alone. (I can always weigh at work anytime - but that's with full clothes on and after eating!!) But if/when I start messign up, I'm going to go buy one.

We are going to the county fair today. I have every intention and good determination going into it, to not go off course food wise. You can buy healthy things here and there and we'll probably only go for 2-3 hours anyways, so I might not buy any food for myself. The girls aren't that into it yet, so they will have seen enough after a little while.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

jamamom: Well, I'm not a big fan of red meat anyway so I would prefer the turkey burger but I can say it's deffinately a great burger. Much better than what I can do at home too.

Default Week of 10/2

Hi ladies:

I had good intentions of trying to start another diet when I last posted but it didn't last long. Today a girl I used to work with transferred back to my office and she asked me today to try to lose weight together. Actually several of us want to lose weight and she's organizing a pool to win money (first one to lose 10% of their body weight). The catch is I have to tell everyone, including the men what I weigh I have to think about that.

Nori: What happened, did your scale fly out the window! I'm glad the wedding went well. Will we be seeing some photos?? I hope your job is going well and the girls are enjoying daycare, it's so good for them to socialize.

Serena: You're doing great on WW, that's what I'm going to try to follow. Do you do good on getting your water in? I struggle with that alot. I'm trying to find Propel on sale, I love that stuff. Any favorite recipes to share? I have to try to dig out my WW books somewhere.

Cathy: I'm so glad you're back also. Keep posting even if you're not losing weight. We miss you and want your company. I hope the new counselor works out well. Unfortunately, I'm still smoking too.

Kim: I haven't weighed in yet, but I know I'm either at or very close to my all time high. Look at it this way, if we don't start again we'll just keep gaining. Do you do WW or another weight loss plan?


It looks like it's just the 5 of us, I'll check in tomorrow and maybe try posting my menus again, that seemed to help me.

Mo

I had a really nice personalized post all done and it went poof away!!!! so here I start a condensed version..
hi everyone!!
I am so frustrated with my will power!~!! My intentions are good but my whatever you call it.. will power is lacking.... I am good for the most part all day and then about 4 pm and on I start either grabbing cookies or chipps or other taboo foods for me and just mindlessly shoving them and not journalling anything!!
I should be trying to lose right along with these biggest losers on tv to keep with a program.. hey why don't us girls have a big loser lose off? we can weigh in on a certain day... and see who loses the most weight by thanksgiving?? too far off?? oct 31?? then thanksgiving?? we could give all our bigger clothes to those poor chubby women who'll need them this winter..not us!! whatcha all think?? I usually weigh in on wed's...

Serena I have been following ww points but falling off that wagon alot.. I think I want to look into an eating plan where i do not have to keep track so strictly because I hate jouranlling maybe i will try core for a bit.. maybe that will do the trick...

Nori.. was it you who has the broken scale.. I would go into withdrawl..hAHA

Mo.. glad to see you are getting back on the wagon too... i am going to shed this weight.. I have lost weight over the holidays b4 so i can do it agin,...
Cathy.. don't you hate that when u lose weight while u are sick but then your body sucks it right back?? what's up with that?? anyways just put up the no vacancy sign for fat!! I am!

ok by ladies let me know if you wanna get in on a challenge here!!! Kim

Default Tuesday

Hi ladies:

Kim: Great enthusiasm! Keep it up I need all the encouragement I can get! Count me in for the challenge, we can do either one or both Halloween/ Thanksgiving. I weighed in today at ding, ding, ding 210.8 What a waste to gain all my weight back over and over again. I think the problem is the sides of the "wagon" need to be built stronger, higher and reinforced so I don't keep falling off. Why don't they put seatbelts on those things!

Today's menu will hopefully be limited to:

B: Oatmeal
S: apple
L: Lean Cuisine, grapes
S: pretzels
D: roast pork, corn, potatoes (portion control!!! )

I will then need someone to come hit me over the head with a club so I don't wake up till Wednesday. I'm sure DH would be willing

Have a great day everyone.

Mo

Default Congratulations!!!

Serena: that is such a great loss!!! You've been so focused and it looks as though the meetings are really making a difference for you. Treat yourself to a nice hot bath or a walk alone!

I hope everyone else is doing well. I did pretty good yesterday, stayed within my points but didn't have time to exercise with all my running around. One negative thing that keeps bothering me is knowing that I've lost weight before and keep ending back up in the same place. I know I have to forget the past and concentrate on this diet journey but it's always in the back of my mind. I think I'll post a thread somewhere and see what others do to put it out of their mind.

Talk with you all soon.

Mo

Default Thursday

Hi ladies:

I got a lot of great replies to my post about trying to forget about past diet failures. I love this site. I hope everyone is doing fine. I did good yesterday on my points and when I got hungry I went to bed! DH tried to bring me up candy while I was in bed and I yelled at him, he said he forgot about the diet

DH is leaving today for Ireland (his sister's wedding) and won't be home till a week from Saturday. I'm heading to the casino this weekend to see Eric Clapton and Robert Cray in concert, I can't wait. Maybe I'll be lucky on the slots while I'm there!

I'll let you all know how the butternut squash soup comes out, I'm going to make it tonight. I need to find Lean Cuisines on sale soon.

Talk with you all soon.

Mo

B: oatmeal 2
L: soup, pretzels, banana 7
D: ham/RF cheese on eng muff: 4
S: granola bar & biscotti: 5
two cups of tea w/ 1% milk: 1
Total: 19 points

I'm so ashamed that I cannot get on here and post everyday anymore. I know lots of other Mom's are so busy, but I think I must have a harder time than most with routines, schedules and just getting things done? I get to the end of my days and cannot believe that another dayis over. It's craziness. Anyways, you can see pics of my sisters wedding on our webpage - which I rarely update! Look in the September photo album. Click HERE.

Diet wise - I'm not doing so hot. I'm not losing - doing what I have to to maintain. On that note, off to the gym. But I already ate 6 minutare York patties.

Ok I will try the challenge, but I will not weigh in until Sunday. It has been a very emotional week. I need to start after the funeral. Not my mom! I will give more details later. Hope eveyone has a good week. Besides it is that TOM and I am going through really bad cravings of chocolate, after that comes the cravings for meat. Hamburger City here I come. Talk to you all later.

Way to go!!! That's great.

I did just go buy a new scale. I don't do so well without seeing one in my bathroom. Will weigh on Monday as I used to. I really want to be in the 190's by 2007. It's up to me. Like I just went to the gym this am, burn up about 700 calories and then came home and ate a Polish sausage and some more York patties. Over 700 calories, no doubt. Catherine, I'm in TOM too, but I'm determined to be good for the rest of the day. I really do not want to see the 230's again.
