WeightlossBoo, welcome! Nice goals! I can see you already are off to a great start with losing 12 lbs. since Feb. 7. I hope you will be able to lay off your diet enough to enjoy a nice dinner and some birthday cake on your birthday. There are no food police here and most of us allow ourselves a "controlled cheat" for special occasions. Great Monday report! I hope you sleep well tonight.
Mary, best wishes on your journaling. Enjoy the retreat--and wine. Kudos on taking some healthful foods.
Nobe, it just plain sucks that you are sick on your birthday and even worse that you have to work on your birthday feeling sick. Big gentle hug to ya!
Luv, do we have Ama in the pact list? Thanks for doing that.
Ama, getting in a lot of exercise on your free day from dieting is really admirable! Way to go on managing your weekend so well that your scale numbers didn't go up! Oh, how fun to be able to use the smaller notch on your belt! That has to feel great! Aw, don't be scared of me. LOL But Mike has pointy steel-toed boots. Thanks so much for your support of my green week. I messed up today when coleslaw happened. It was allowed food so didn't count against the clean eating pact, but it did give me a red number for my carbs. I'll just do better the rest of the week. So glad you find our group motivates you--it does me, too. Without this group I'd still be at my highest weight.
Deborah, welcome back!
Congrats on having your act together again and for your cravings to be more in control. Major kudos on not being up on the scale.
Terri, sorry your week started out sucky with a broken machine. Doesn't sound like much fun! I hope you had a lovely grill-out.
Mai, it certainly is wonderful to have a fresh start every Monday. How did your muffin omelets turn out and what did you put in them? Sorry, my memory is bad sometimes and I'm too lazy to go back through the posts to find it. Was that you who was going to do spinach and cheese? Did you rewarm them in the microwave and if so, how long did it take for yours to warm? Mine take about 45 seconds for two of them on a glass plate.
Rubypeanut, I'm glad to know that you find encouragement here.
Jho, I used to get up at 6AM to have two hours time to myself when my kids (now in their 30s) were pre-schoolers. Really does help one get through the day. When you convince Braydon that veggies are good, could you please come to Ohio to teach my almost 8 year old grandson that? LOL I may have to hand you my whip to threaten ME with! I didn't slack on water or exercise, but ate some coleslaw that will start me off with red right off the bat for my carbohydrate target. But it's not the end of the world, so I will just try harder tomorrow. I was a fan of both JFK and Marilyn Monroe, so your happy birthday song gave me a big chuckle.
Hope, "You Can Do IT" is a great title--maybe we can use that next week. Well, kudos on your 2 lb. net loss! Beats the heck out of a plateau or regaining, doesn't it? Great goals. Hey--you and Jho are right--you can do it.
Best wishes on your dental work and bills. I've heard that fibro is a real cross to bear and it makes it rough to diagnose symptoms as part of fibro or something else, so it's wonderful that we have the technology to give you peace of mind on the health of your heart. And here's hoping you get confirmation of that ASAP. Great that you like your doctor--helps a lot.
Quinn, washing windows and screens is indeed exercise! Give yourself credit for that!
April, way to go on that 1.8 lb. loss! And major kudos on being at your lowest FitDay weight. I'm still 6.5 lbs. above my lowest FD weight, but plan on breaking my record soon. That is absolutely wonderful that your hard work on a more healthful lifestyle and weight loss was rewarded with all those nice compliments! Congrats on those size 20s. I know how good that feels--I used to wear a size 24-26.
