Baby steps are good, I just don't want to go backwards. I have to remind myself that I'm aiming for a .5 lose a week. any extra is a bonus.
Today looks to be great weather, last day for awhile with out rain. I will get my rain coat & pants out to be ready for walking in the rain.
Today I've done my 20 minutes of stretches ( foot, back and knee therapy )
I will do 20 minute walk. ( that's all the Dr. wants me to do this month, Hoping I can walk 30 next month) I will not eat any sweets and watch my food intake. Wishing you all a wonderful fun filled day!

10/19: 137.6

Been crazy busy. But I feel good that although DH and I were away for almost a week and ate out just about every night, I did not gain.

I hope everyone is well. I love that exercise quote.

Yeah Debbie. You can do it. I find that having two times a week to weigh in
helps me to be more careful during the week and on week ends too. I did treat myself to one piece of candy and the sweetness was too much. My tastes have changed and it didn't taste as good as I thought it would. Stay strong.
Tomorrow is Monday.

Thanks Libby!! I'm quite up this morning though...so not looking likely that I'll see a loss tomorrow...I'll be lucky to see my Friday weight. Two nights in a row of parties (my parents 50th and a Halloween party) and not eating exactly on track....however, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and that's important to me. If I feel too deprived and that I can't go out and enjoy myself, that will derail me. So, I may be up tomorrow, but I'll still be working towards my goals and that's what counts right now

Wow! You managed to only have 1 piece of candy!! What great self control!! That's the reason that you've been seeing such consistent results! Great job Libby!

Like others, I love the quote about exercise! For far too long, I saw exercise as punishment; now I see it differently and am learning to see my body as wonderful and amazing in all that it can do.

Hubbie cooked yesterday--beans with ham and sausage and rice. I didn't eat any of the rice but I ate some of the beans with ham and sausage and it was SOOO good! His cooking meant my kitchen was a mess but it was worth it. He's a great cook and loves to cook quite often--if I could get him to clean up after he cooks!

Libby: Congrats on stopping with just one piece of candy!

10/26: 136
11/2: 136.2

I feel like I should be eating better and losing quicker. Also want to get back to small movements. Bought a new house so crazy busy. Maybe running around getting stuff ready is exercise?

One piece of candy, Libby, woo hoo!

I love the quotes, Debbie. Congrats on parents' 50th!!!

It's great your husband cools. Good control avoiding the rice! I make mess when I cook too...

Default Disappointed!!

I am so disappointed. I tried so hard, food journal, water, exercise. healthy eating. Halloween ate a caramel apple and a candy bar. I didn't gain but I only lost 1/2 pound. I know that is my goal but I still am really bummed out. Now the hard part is getting back on track and thinking I wont lose anyway. I am going to limit my portions even more. I have to get the weigh off! -------- ----------------Congratulations to all the weight lost, I am happy for you, Keep charging on!! ( I'll be right behind you trying to keep up!)
Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Holy water weight!! I'm up 4 lbs. from my Friday weigh in, so obviously it's water weight. I kind of expected this to happen. I'm over it I've been looking for extra motivation so I joined DietBet. I have until Nov 23 to hit 152.4 lbs. or I lose the money I invested. If I find the vibe at DietBet motivating, then I may just keep joining challenge after challenge until I hit my goal weight. I won't be weighing in again until Nov 23, but I'll still be here cheering you all on while working towards my own personal goal

Challenge Weigh Ins
Oct 5 - 154 lbs.
Oct 12 - ???
Oct 20 - 155.6 lbs.
Oct 26 - 156 lbs.
Nov 2 - 158.8
Nov 9 - ???
Nov 16 - ???
Nov 23 - 152.4 GOAL
Nov 30 -
Dec 7 -
Dec,14 -
Dec 21 -
Dec 28 -
Jan 4 - 143 lbs. (goal)
