Mern - we missed your contributions when you were gone.

Mike - You'll likely be in the '70s this weekend. Fantastic job! I also grew up being admonished to clean my plate - all the starving children in China and all that. Now it's just that I don't like being wasteful (so I've got compost going in the garden, and a worm bin in the garage).

Robin - so glad your back is healing. You sound like you're full of energy!

Hope - hoping that your symptoms will subside - a big cyberhug for you. (To fix your time, go to User CP, then to "Edit Options".)

piwacket - That's great your daughter has good eating habits. But how sad that her skinny friends think they have to diet.

Donna - I love salads too. They're filling, refreshing, and so easy to change up with whatever leftover meat and vegetables I have.

Cassie - Gosh, you sound busy. Hope you get some R&R this weekend.

Epi - you're doing great with your goals. Re logging food - I've lost weight not counting calories with the South Beach Diet, so I know I CAN do it that way. But for now, with my grazing tendencies the way they are, I need to log everything.

Jenn - congrats on your weight loss.

If I missed anyone, I didn't mean to!

***
1. Calories under 1300: 1118, 1299, 1278
2. An hour extra movement a day: Y, Y,Y, Y (doing lots of yard work again)
3. No sugar, white flour: Y, N, Y, N
4. Small bites and put fork down between bites.-Working on it and I'm remembering to do it more often.

Welcome Amy. I'm also a size 22 (would like to get down to 16/18). When I started working out I lost inches. It took me a while to lose weight.
Eating more fruits and veggies helped me. It keeps you fuller and veggies are very low calorie. Don't forget to drink lots of water too.

Check in for Friday:

1. Calories below 1300. 1247, 1125, 1087, 1350, 1262
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
4. Sleep enough. Yes, Yes, Not even close, Yes, Not even close
5. Stay on top of work; don't get behind. So far, so good, Yes, Yes, Like a boss, Yes

Mixed bag. Gotta work on the exercise! Eating has been back under control for a few weeks now, so the lack of (vigorous) exercise has to be what's keeping me from making any appreciable progress.

Welcome to our group, amyrosepickard...once you get on track and see a bit of results, you will feel better. Stick with it and use us for support as much as you want; that's what we're here for! That and some laughs .

Hope everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend so far!

And we're into the weekend, everyone! Hooray!

A big woot woot for Jenn! Down 2 pounds, wonderful! That has to be so encouraging!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well, Hope. On a happier note, you also lost 2 pounds and got back to your Spanish! Buen trabajo! (I hope that's right -- I think it means "good job" )

Go, go, Mike! You're knocking on the door of the 170s -- go get 'em!

Welcome aboard, Amyrose! I'm so glad you found this thread!

Carolyn, you're so close to your weight goal, fantastic!

I hope you can catch up on the sleep this weekend, Cassie. You're doing a great job!

As for me:

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

I'm pretty pleased with the way things have gone so far this week. I weigh every day, so I know where I am, but I generally regard Mondays as my "official" weight day. This coming Monday is looking promising, assuming I don't go too far off-track today and tomorrow . Here's to a great weekend, folks!

Amy - welcome. Good goals! I want to commend you for being honest about not meeting all of your goals yesterday. It's a new day - you can do it today! Focus on meeting your daily goals and the larger goal will follow.
