Motivation & Support 3/14 - 3/20
 
Hey all. It's a good thing we have a Motivation & Support thread each week, because I definitely need some motivation and support!

How are you all doing?

Libby, great loss this week for the Spring Challenge!

libby135 03-14-2016 10:33 PM

Hi all. I have been having trouble getting on this site today. Thanks Lisa for getting us started this week. My body is finally letting go of the weight that it was holding on to in January and February. I was afraid that I would be stuck in a plateau and not be able to lose any more weight. It's been raining today and I wasn't able to take my bicycle out for a spin. I kept busy with laundry dishes and sewing. The spring challenge is almost over with just two more times to weigh in. I won't make my goal but I gave it a good shot. I haven't seen any one else weigh in today? Where are you? Come out come out where ever you are.

Hey ladies!! How's it going? AZ, what's going on? Talk to us!

Hi, Mike. I was on my period this past week (sorry tmi), and I always feel like crap, I always crave and eat too much, and I always feel hungry no matter how much I eat. The past 2 weeks or so I haven't been logging, have been drinking entirely too much soda and have been avoiding. When I don't log and hold myself accountable it's a slippery slope, and I've lost my footing a bit. Tomorrow I want to start getting back to my atkins shakes with milk, diet soda, normal dinner portions, and small low cal snacks. It sounds easy enough, but coming off the sugar high will be tough. I just overall feel shitty and feel fatter than I normally do. I mean, I always feel fat (because I am!), but right now I feel bloated and sluggish and faaaaaaaaaat. Thank you for asking about me.

How are you, Mike and how's the new house?

libby135 03-15-2016 02:43 PM

Hi all. I guess I spoke too soon yesterday. My weight is up a pound and a half and I know my calories were under 900 yesterday. WTH. My hands are puffy and my rings are tight. I must be retaining water. I hope it's gone before Friday. I am going to try to get out on my bike today before it starts raining again. It's very quiet around here. Is it because the kids are on March break and there isn't time to post?
Debbie and Lisa, I hope you are doing and feeling better soon.

lildebbieg 03-15-2016 05:36 PM

Hi all! :) I finally braved the scale today and was happy to see I'm only up 2.5 lbs. which is not bad at all!! I was relieved and now I'm ready to get my act together and continue making progress.

Libby - I'm in a new office layout where I have no privacy, so I'm not able to read and post like I used to. In the evenings, I'm often too busy with the kids to get on here. Going forward, I probably won't be posting as often as I used to.

Have a great day all!

libby135 03-16-2016 12:36 PM

Debbie, I hope the new office layout came with a raise. Post at night before you go to bed. Then you can tell us how your day went. It's so quiet I can hear my knitting needles clanking. I think that I was the only one who weighed in on Monday. Where is everyone? I'm no good with out you.

rosabella2012 03-16-2016 05:14 PM

Sorry, but I forgot to weigh in this week, but hopefully, I'll remember in the morning before work.

I've also had some issues with getting replies to 'stick'! That seems not to be an issue today thankfully!

I start in my new office at LSU Clinic on Monday! I'm so excited! I'll start out teaching a class two days per week for two hours a day. Really looking forward to it!

Time for a lunch of red bell peppers, sugar snap peas, yellow tomatoes and orange baby carrots. Add in some baked chicken and get ready my next class! Today's pretty busy!

Vicki

libby135 03-17-2016 05:34 AM

I had a bad day food wise and went way over calories. Thank goodness tomorrow is another day.
Vicki, all the best to you in your new job.
Debbie, post when you can and let us know how you are doing.
Every one else, hang in there.

libby135 03-17-2016 10:30 PM

Happy St. Patrick's Day. I hope you ate your greens today. HA HA

AZLisaLou 03-17-2016 11:04 PM

Vicki, wishing you the best on your new job!!!

Libby, no greens for me, or green beer either.

Debbie, thinking about you buddy.


This week is AWFUL. Thankfully I can have a do-over. A lot of damage has been done, and the scale is waaaay up (I don't know exactly as I haven't weighed at my normal time). And tonight we're having Chinese take out. Sugar and sodium.

How are you, Mike and how's the new house?

You'd be surprised what Ive heard over the past several years here. Not much bothers me, so no need to apologize. I feel ya on the bloated and sluggish bit. :( The house is fine, I finally finished building my fence. I hope this weekend to get in the front and work on the flower beds with the wife. We picked up 50 bags of mulch and 5 bags of soil. Saturday we'll go plant shopping and grab a ton of weed cloth. Then Sunday, it's elbows to the grind and fingers in the dirt.

Ready for a challenge? Sure you are! First thing tomorrow hop on the scale. That's not the challenge, this is... tomorrow you can only eat 5 apples and only drink water. Try to drink at least a 100 oz of water. Trust me, with the fiber in the apples, you shouldn't feel hungry. Then the following morning, hop back on the scale and let me know how many pounds you lost. Yes... pounds. If you aren't down a good 2 pounds by Saturday morning and you're still feeling bloated I'll have a bigger challenge. Stay home, grab a few magazine and a pack of wipes, down a bottle of mag citrate and enjoy your day. :) You won't feel bloated by Sunday and you'll probably be down 3-4 pounds from Friday's weigh in.

Yikes! Sounds completely torturous! lol I haven't taken any glucomannan pills for about a week. I'll start with those.

AZLisaLou 03-18-2016 10:11 PM

I'm sinking fast, but I've got water wings on to save me. I have eaten a lot of calories today, however, I've tried to make them better choices instead of the s**t I've been dumping in my body for the past week. I've had a breakfast sandwich, a cinnamon raisin bagel (not the best choice, but better than a donut!!!), and a salad. I'll admit to some soda, but it's not as much as I've been having. I'm still not logging. I will, though. I'll get back in the groove.

libby135 03-19-2016 06:44 PM

I went clothes shopping and found some slacks in a size 12 and two tops in size large. I was in 18 and 2x last year so I am happy that I gave away my old summer clothes. I am into old stubborn fat now so I probably will be losing more slowly from now on. It will be nice to get out of the 160's which is the lowest I have weighed since 2002. My neighbour had two bike helmets and she gave me one so I am looking forward to riding my bike again. Have a good week end.

01gt4.6 03-20-2016 12:14 PM

AZ, better choices are always good. Keep pushing in the right direction.

Libby, big congrats! Keep it up girl!

rosabella2012 03-20-2016 07:36 PM

Libby, that's awesome! So proud for you!

I tweaked my enchalada recipe yesterday to decrease carbs/fats (used low-carb tortillas and less oil for sauteing onions/celery) and increase fiber (the lc tortillas) and protein (used left-over baked chicken for the meat). I also found a red sauce that tastes better to me than the green and I used less cheese. They turned out very good--there's only 2 left!

Working on tweaks to my fav breakfast casserole next!

If any of you like Artic Zero frozen dessert--try the Brownie Blast--it was a hit with my family! Really dark chocolate w/ chocolate chips (not very many!) and bits (really SMALL bits!) of brownies.

On Monday morning I am going in to hospital for eye surgery. I had cataract surgery a few years ago but now my vision is cloudy again. They can correct it with laser surgery and take the cloudyness away. I am praying that every thing goes well. You may not be hearing from me for a couple of days till my eye sight clears up again.

mdl1922 03-20-2016 10:20 PM

Good luck with your eye surgery, Hope everything goes well
