Kris - You look fab! I am the same, I always need approval before I purchase something so I never shop alone, my SO is always with me.

love2b150 - Thanks for the encouragement, it is a little frustrating but I won't let it discourage me! My body is just playing with me to see if I give up, but I won't! And yes, we are going vegan throughout the day so no eggs, dairy will be limited to soy milk and soy yoghurt etc

Marci - Welcome to the thread! Best of Luck!

LOL Lauren, you know it's not a little frustrating, it's A LOT frustrating. I literally would have given up if it weren't for the encouragement here. I knew I was doing everything that I was supposed to do and it is definitely a big deal to me not to eat all day and actually get off my listless behind and do any kind of exercise. Two of the places that we've lived I could walk to the 7-11 in about 20-30 minutes and both places I drove. It wasn't even worth the gas to go there but lazy me wouldn't walk. Now I look forward to my walks so it was very very frustrating for the scale not to move for a week Gosh I've come a long way. But now I also know that I need to switch things up every now and then. I am starting not to like eggs any way so I could probably give that up, cheese is starting to bother me also not sure what is it exactly about it. I think it's just the taste and the sodium. I like milk though, but I could sure do without chicken and deli meat. I'm talking myself into a new way of eating. hmmm Thanks Lauren for new ideas

love2b150 - haha you are right it is definitely more than a little frustrating Another reason I am giving up dairy is because I have a lot allergies and apparently dairy only makes them worse. I am hoping that I see a big change in that dept. I take allergy medicine every day so if I could stop taking that daily I would be one happy camper!

You guys are doing fine...keep it up...I'm loving this thread its helping me although...I went out to dinner as I said earlier, salmon was off the menu so I had a grilled chicken burger (one breast) with no dressing and about ten medium sized chips. I had about 600-800 cals left for the day and now I'm really worried I have over done it :'( I didn't eat it all, but still, I will try and burn a lot at the gym tomorrow...
Sad now :'(

Hi Everyone!

I went to the Endo today for a follow up about my Thyroid. My dosage is changing very slightly. I will keep the same dosage M-F but Sat/Sun will go down only 12 mcg. She is really impressed with my weight loss and thinks I am doing great. I really thought my dosage would change considerably considering my weight loss. Also, I thought my TTOM issues were because my thyroid meds were too high. That's obviously not the issue. I guess it does have to do with a hormonal imbalance from the weight loss. It looks like that has been corrected with a Progesterone cream anyways. Let's hope.

Kris I always wear jeans, T-shirts, and athletic shoes because of the type of work we are in. Last night after DH and I ate, I went to Marshalls to look around. I didn't want to buy anything, but I did want to try on a few things just to see what I look like. I know that probably sounds weird, but I don't have any nice clothes that fit me. I took a couple dresses into the dressing room to try on. These dresses are not my style. I wanted to try something totally different than what I would normally wear. I was amazed at how femimine I look. My shoulders/neck area are really nice. It's amazing how new and different clothes can make you feel.

Diana ~ I have always been a jeans and t-shirt kind of person. Sometimes it feels good to step outside of our comfort zone. I'm glad you tried on some different types of things. I work in an office that is business casual, my idea of business casual is very casual ~ it's hard to want to spend the money and effort on nice clothes when you weigh 280 lbs. Until I started losing weigh, I rarely, if ever, wore dresses. I am a basic slacks and pullover cotton (almost t-shirt material) type of tops and flats (not a fan of heels). I "dress up" so rarely that a couple of times when I had nicer clothes on, my boss asked me if I had a job interview or something. I totally understand the going to try on clothes just to see - the two outfits I bought this week (that I really couldn't afford) weren't planned purchases, I was just trying them on to see if they would fit and how they would look. It's amazing how good it felt and with the "mood" I've been fighting lately I decided to buy. Most everything else I have is getting so big that I was feeling frumpy and feel like I'm hiding my weightloss. I got a lot of looks today at work, at the grocery store, etc. Don't know if it's because I felt better and people noticed that or what. I can't wait to get the rest of this weight off (45-50 more lbs) and really start enjoying this life.

Lunch - 460
Birdseye southwestern style rice

Snacks through the day - ~700
Tuna sandwich (450)
Bean and cheese burrito (250)

Dinner - 610

I think I did something wrong when I cooked the new to me chicken stew last night. Hubby and I didn't feel well all day today, he stayed home from work and we slept late than hung out of the couch.

Welcome, Abidabbi, Madrikh, Willsmom.

Diana, glad to hear your good news from the Endo.

Madrikh, I read the Beck book and got a lot of help with it. Did you see the Beck forum here at Chicks?

Hi everyone and welcome to the new people too
Feeling a bit better this morning as I have worked out how to fit in the gym today (as in sneak it in in the middle of work)...!
I have holidays booked for the end of August, I'm really excited as it means I can go on a real exercise binge! I'm loving the gym but also want to fit in some walking and maybe try a little running (I have big front bumps so haven't really gotten into it before)...

So far today just breakfast - toast and tea and trying to think positive thoughts

I had a few more calories than usual yesterday. By dinner time I had to drive my daughter and granddaughter to my mom so she can visit for the week and I was so hungry I gave in to my temptations and had fast food but stayed on the lighter side. Im ok with it though. In the past I have ended diets from being so hungry and depriving myself if I really really want it. Not a set back.. the scale didnt move but I enjoyed my dinner so its ok
And I didnt exceed my BMR or RMR.. here it is
Yesterdays menu:

Breakfast:310
Turkey bacon bowl
2 pc wheat bread with spray butter

Snack:125
V8 juice 1 slice wheat bread and turkey lunchmeat (dry)

Lunch: 260
bowl salad (Smokehouse BBq ranch chicken) I didnt really like it so it didnt satisfy my hunger

Snack: 185
2 pc wheat bread lettuce, tomato, onions, mustard and honey ham
(I ate this because I was so hungry I guess from not liking the salad)

Dinner:650
Chika-fila grilled chicken sandwich and sm waffle fries
TOTAL: 1530
only about 32oz of water..Ill do better today!!!
