Hi Everyone!

Sounds like lots of success on this board! I'm back to logging my food because I'm up a couple of pounds. After my knee replacement, things were going so well and I was so ahead of the game. Alas, I tweaked a little something doing a squat (one of the exercises given to me by my PT ), so I haven't been able to exercise much. (Didn't hurt the replacement, it's just a little more swollen than normal). At any rate, lack of exercise + cold temps + hubby out of town for two weeks so I'm having to do everything = feeling sorry for myself and eating too much!!

BUT, I know how to do this and thankfully you are all doing so well (and are here) that I'll nip it in the bud now!

Have a great week.

Sounds silly and I know it's been drilled in my head but I just have a hard time doing it . . . .

Setting small weekly goals and only weighing in once a week.

I get really crazy and weigh in every day and get discouraged.

BUT this last week I set a goal that was reachable and didn't weigh in every day and I LOST

Sometimes we know what to do, but just fight doing it.

Hope everyone's having a good week! (BTW - it's FREEZING in Ohio)

Well, girls I am finally honest enough with myself to see that I need help getting to that final number. I am trying not to be fixated on it, but in 2 pounds it will be a NORMAL BMI. I lost about 30 I can lose 2 more.

I've made some decisions. For me, this isnt about the scale anymore. I need to focus on the fitness and health part of the journey, which, if I do it right, the pounds should follow, right? So....

I have a meeting on Friday with a trainer at my gym to discuss my nutrition, my current workouts, my goals, my measurements, etc. I know my nutrition is pretty good, but obviously there is something in my equation that I am missing, since I've been teetering around this same weight since October. Maintenance is good, but I want to tweak this plan just a little bit more.

So... wish me luck I am pretty psyched.

was up 1/2 pound last week, this week back down to my favorite number, 142. I think Im attached to it, like its my 3rd child! LOL

doing some crossfit stuff with some friends now, and incorporating more intense workout activity for the last 4 weeks. Without these buddies, I would not push as hard, this I have come to realize. I am not losing weight. But this more intense workout leaves my blood sugars a bit low, so I have had to up my calorie intake to about 1900 cals and add more protein to keep myself OK. BUT... I have noticed a difference in measurements, so I am excited!~ Scale is not going to be my end all be all! NSV - This morning I saw a definition in my stomach. THAT HASNT HAPPENED SINCE I WAS 19! (im 44 now by the way!) Wasnt sure, so I asked my husband, "What the hell is this?" And he said uh, its a byproduct of all those planks and scissors! Its not much, there's no 6 pack abs or anything, nowhere close to that, but you can see a flatter space with definition on each side. WHOO HOO JUST KEEP SWIMMING!
