Cassie - I'm bordering from apple to pear shaped and would say defo boot-cut jeans to balance out those hips. If you want to be 'on-trend' with the skinny jean style, go for straight cut, skinny jeans are only for the very skinny!

Also, dark denim coloured jeans take a few pounds off too or, so I've heard.

All those sunday mornings watching Gok Wan have finally paid off Do you know who Gok Wan is in the US???

FINALLY, I saw the scale move! Down 1 lb, so happy to finally see it budge even if it is just 1 lb.

I haven't measured, yet today because I'm feeling really bloated this morning. I had 10 pot stickers from the Chinese restaurant yesterday, plenty of sodium there but they sure did taste good!

Great job to everyone that's seen results!

Great job everyone. The good news is we are still being honest with ourselves about food intake, are exercising, and results ARE on the way. For those of us that lift weights regularly, please take note of your measurements more than the scale. This is really important. The scale just won't tell you how much muscle tissue you're adding. Inches lost are a better indicator of progress. Obviously measuring daily would be discouraging but once every week or two is a good idea. The scale is still a good tool--just doesn't tell the whole story.

Quinn: Good for you, girl! Maintenance is the ultimate goal. You are doing it!! It is sobering to realize that we cannot increase our calories as much as we'd hoped in maintenance. My old way of thinking was 'bring on the (insert favorite junk food)' when I hit my goal. The mindset I'm trying to cultivate when I hit 120 is 'bring on an extra fruit serving and/or maybe one more serving of starch'.

Beth- Every other time I have lost weight, I was the same way. In fact, I remember another time when I reached a 25 lb. weight loss goal, my "reward" was to go to my favorite Italian restaurant and order the "Italian Festival". (The plate was the size of my head! lol)

I now realize that you are exactly right. I've increased a few more healthy carbs, granola bars for example, and am allowing a few more healthy snacks during the day. One of my new favorite evening snacks is a large bowl of fruit with fat free whipped topping. (Topping only has 20 cal. per 2 tablespoons. Not exactly a health food, but it satisfies my craving for something creamy like ice cream.)

I'm afraid my "Italian Festival" days may be over... sigh... But my husband is following the same maintenance plan, making it much easier for me to eat clean. We keep each other honest.

Yes, I agree with both of you. One of my fave snacks is yogurt with fruit and some chopped almonds sprinkled over if I'm low on protein and fat for the day. The fruit with the whipped topping sounds good, too.

Sounds like the "Italian festival" is something that you could split with about eight people if you need a taste (unless of course it's a trigger food).

You guys are doing so great; I'm so excited that this can be done!!!!

My MIL is Italian and I've been experimenting with sauces and have switched over to the whole wheat pasta. We only have it once every month or two, but I was surprised at how healthy the basic sauce recipe is when I calculated it out....it's mostly just tomatoes and spices.

Spoon, Manda, great job, and thanks ladies for the advice on jeans. The aforementioned MIL is visiting later in the week and we will probably go shopping. Hopefully it will be better than last time when I had the Great Thigh Meltdown .

Default Oh my, missed the weigh in!!

Hi everyone! Since I am new to this board, I didn't see the separate weigh-in discussion, its a good idea to keep it separate. I had to look back in my weight journal to see where I was on that day, I was down 1.3 pounds! Pretty good for me since my shin splints are keeping me from running this week!

I think it a great idea to track waist size, thigh size, etc, it may help me stay motivated if my weight does not change at least something else may have.

Straight leg jeans are the way to go for someone who is interested in the skinny jean look! My legs can't even fit in those things if I go up a few sizes but I find the straight leg looks similar and is pretty comfortable. I go for gap curvy fit in the straight leg!

Good job this week ladies!
