Catching up with Monday's posts.
Newbies: so you can learn who we are, I'll put usernames today in parenthesis if addressing someone by a known first name if it's not totally obvious. We have one male member, our moderator, Mike.
Lizzie (Lizards13) OMG, that is SO SWEET that you and your family toasted me, even though they don't know me. What a nice bunch of people! But the way I ate on Easter was certainly nothing admirable. I did truly think of you as I was preparing and later eating Easter dinner.
So cool about the dress--had to make you feel really great.
Tori, congrats on being 2 lbs. down from last Monday!
April (wildbeanerz) those "uninformed 'good' choices" are so aggravating, aren't they? I HATE it when that happens: the best of intentions and then it sets off cravings for me. I hear ya on the sodium: I overate on ham so badly that I went to bed Easter night with my feet and legs aching from water retention. Yesterday I ate a ton of ham again, even knowing it wasn't good for me, and couldn't quench my thirst even with drinking over three quarts of water. Life gets in the way of keeping up with this thread. Don't fret about not having been able to keep up. I didn't even weigh yesterday. I'm afraid I regained all I lost last week and I'd been doing SO well. But for both you and me, a lot of the gain must be from water retention. Still, I may not weigh at all this week because I'm afraid having to face my gain could easily draw me back into the "I don't care" attitude for weeks on end. I refuse to allow that. I can do this!
HKG (hardcoarKittyGirl) I KNOW you will lose that one pound. I'll be cheering you on as you pass your mini-goal line.
Mike (01gt4.6), trouble in paradise again? Hope you and GF can smooth things out. DH and I had a spat night before Easter over something really stupid and we had to agree to disagree so we would keep the peace on Easter.
Hope (canary52) I'm glad you're back on track. You are certainly not alone--many of us fell off the wagon over the holiday weekend. I wish I had read your post about the water toast yesterday--maybe I'd have felt guilty enough about not deserving it that I'd have gotten back on the wagon sooner. But I truly do appreciate your friendship and confidence in me. I'm gonna be all green the rest of the week and that IS A PROMISE!
Nobe, nice, sensible goals. Being flexible due to different activities is the way to go.
Terrienne Terri, welcome! We also have a Taubele Terri who is an active member of our group so I'll make an effort to be sure you know which Terri I'm addressing. Really nice goals! I was very close to your current weight pre-Easter. Too chicken to get on the scales after eating out of control over the weekend. I hope my scale can catch back up with yours.
Becky, welcome to you, too. Congrats on having lost after only five days. Well done! Best wishes on your move. We all set our own goals and we all support whatever works best for the individual. Your goals look wonderful!
Quinn (quinnesec) welcome to the bunch of us trying to regain control! I'll be rooting for you to stay on the wagon as life takes you away from us over the next several weeks.
Ama (amalthea189) you did better than I did on Easter. Does look like a lot you ate, but when we consider the reality of it being spread out over several hours, it's not so bad for a holiday. I had to chuckle about your grandma story. I'll bet my grandkids giggle over stuff I do, too. LOL Best wishes with your goals this week.
Cassie (cjohnson728) LOL on whether lack of computer access means calories don't count. I hope that also applies to those of us who are simply not logging on because we're hiding under the paper bags over our heads. (OK--that's just me. LOL)
OK, I gotta get moving to get my grandkids off to school. Will resume catching up AFTER I exercise this morning.
