Okay, my diet wasn't so great yesterday. I was headed in a downward spiral but I pulled up my WT (Wonder Twins) britches and straightened up. My water was down but I'm down another .6, I'm at 180.0 this morning.

Congrats Mike at reaching 180!

I made it my goal to remember to drink the water on the weekend since I tend to forget. Mike you will be happy to know I finished one bottle this morning.
I'm finally getting the spare room cleaned out and have one bag of recycling, one bag of garbage (grocery store size) and one garbage bag of clothes to be donated.

Welcome Amyrose- we are so glad to have you join us. You'll get the hang of the calories planning, it'll get easier to stay within your goals.

Somebody posted a recipe for frozen green smoothies a while back. I made them today. They are in the freezer...I don't know they smelled kinda gross. We'll see.

Cassie, I hear ya about busy and hungry. That would have also been my downfall at a pizza place. I am struggling to plan my food on work days so that I don't get in that spot........some days it is working better than others!

Hope, so sorry you are not feeling well. I hope you are feeling better soon, is the sun out in NYC? Does that help with the fibro?

Congrats Jenn to be below your lowest weight! Good job. I guess it is getting that water in.

Mike sounds like you might hit the 170's tomorrow. Here's hoping.

Donna, I love salad too. It makes it handy for getting the vegs in. I am so looking forward to fresh local stuff being available (snow here again today).

Epixi.....weekends are the best for me because I have time to cook. Hope your weekend is successful!

I have 6k in of my goal of 10 but it looks promising to do 4 tomorrow.

I don't know what possessed me yesterday, but I hit the 1500ml water mark by about 3pm and just kept going. Surprised I didn't float away!

  • Log everything, no exceptions: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • At least 1500ml water per day: yes, yes, 2000ml, yes, yes, 2500ml
  • Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550 (day/7-day average): 1466/1566, 1299/1556, 1064/1490, 1526/1489, 1582/1467, 1356/1394
  • Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1500mg (day/7-day average): 1172/1245, 1521/1327, 483/1158, 532/1083, 913/1030, 357/807
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

Good job this week Epixi. Oh, I'm with you on the water! By the time I went to bed I did feel like I was going to float away.

Welcome Amyrose!!!! You'll get the hang of it!!!

Epixi, Jenn, you go on that water!!!! (oops inadvertent bad pun)

Robin, thank you for your good thoughts. The sun, warmth, barometric pressure all seem to affect fibro. This week, I could not sit up, walk or drive much. I was not well enough to work. That is hopefully getting better.

Robin, 6k is good!!! keep going!!!

Epixi you did great on the Spanish. And I gained the two pounds back. DH made a crab boil with starchy veggies and it was loaded with sodium. Plus I have been depression eating due to my sadness about my fibro flare.

I have friends who lost a lot of weight on a program with pre packaged food. I was thisclose to buying some of their food. I am not much for prepackaged food but I am thinking of trying the basics of the plan: 5 small "meals" of 100 calories (including snacks) and 5-6 oz of protein for dinner with a veg. 8 glasss of water. I am better eating more often and small meals are better than large. (I also gotta follow epixi's water drinking example.) You just got a preview of tomorrow's goals, I think. But I may start today.

1. Calories below 1300. 1247, 1125, 1087, 1350, 1262, 1297
2. Move more...up the exercise. Hit the weights for a little bit tonight, Yes-C25K
3. Take vitamins and supplements. Yes, Yes, Some, Some, Some
4. Sleep enough. Yes, Yes, Not even close, Yes, Not even close, 8 blessed hours!!
5. Stay on top of work; don't get behind. So far, so good, Yes, Yes, Like a boss, Yes, Nope, but hoping to catch up today.

I had the boy at a tournament all the way across town yesterday; we went in between matches to the first restaurant we saw...Mexican. I ended up with a salad...field greens, grilled chicken, dried cherries, mandarin oranges, almonds; held dressing and cheese but had some chips & salsa. So cals are an estimate.

Hope, I hear you. Wish I could give you a real-life hug. Never forget how strong you are. You can get through this.

Epixi, you are doing a great job! What a great week for you

Nice job on the protein, Donna...and SEVEN veggies? You rock!

Robin, I hope you are enjoying finishing up the 10 today. Hope you've had the chance to do some cooking this weekend and may the coming week not be too hectic .

carolynnq, it sure is good to see you steady-as-she-goes. Reminds me we can all do it. Thanks for all your words of wisdom here on FD, in this thread and others. I know you have helped out many folks.

Mike, looking forward to hearing the new number for the week; sure hope you are back to the next decade down.
