Default Good news

I may have hard a hard time with going low carb but I can honestly say that my plateau has been broken. Today I'm at 170.0 and my weight is falling off again. I got my belt hole back, jeans are fitting a little looser, gut is looking flatter and sirts are still snug in the right spots. My mini keg is back down to a 4 pack and I hope will be to a 6 pack before long. I haven't had a 6 pack since my 20's.

It's looking like I will hit my goal by may, when I turn the big four-oh!

I was thinking about my cheat day... next Monday. I figured that any extra calories deficient I get this week I can use that for my cheat Monday. So, my goal this week is -2000 cals, so if I end the week at -2500, next monday I'll only allow myself to go +500 over my burn.

Terri- Great job on the ONEderland !! Thats awesome

Quinn- Im hoping like you I can be bikini ready by early May for HAWAII

Jjeand- Im sorry to hear about an unsupportive bf it is hard when your other half doesn't want to be active I face it every day but he supports me working out just doesn't see he should as well even just to walk the dogs its a big battle. Im hoping that once he sees the big results I know are coming it will be enough to push him to try and get healthy himself. You got to do what is best for you despite all others because it is after all your body and your esteem Good Luck and Keep your head up !

Stacey- I have done yoga a lot over the last couple of years it is phenomenal for flexibility and for core strength! Not only will it build up a light sweat but it makes you feel refereshed because everything involves your core, balance and really paying attention to your body while working out. I highly recommend it !! Classes are great for newbies because you will get the basics and after that you can do it at home , Hope you decide to venture out to do it I have a feeling you'll love it!

Hope everyone has a great day

Mike,

Congratulations on breaking through your plateau! Just shaking things up a bit seems to work for many of us. (...just in time for shirtless lawn mowing, as well! )

rose ~ poor you. the snow we were to have gotten yesterday didn't show up thank god. however, we are to still get snow today. i'm not sure about you, but we've had like record breaking snow this year. people haven't seen this much snow here in like 30 years it's crazy. when i'm out walking i see that people have shoveled & it's piled up almost to their front doors it's nuts. only -17 C here today so that is almost warm.

mike ~ i agree with others you have done amazingly well. i looked at your pics awhile ago, but haven't watched your video yet. i'm sure it's great. that's awesome that you broke through your plateau. woo hoo!!!

i'm going to see if i can put this into words. this week i've been feeling less manic or frantic about the weight coming off 'quick enough.' i know the weight is coming off i can tell, my boyfriend can tell & my clothes are feeling looser on me. i know the exercise is working as i can see the definition coming back to my arms, tummy getting flatter. i have a general feeling that i'm in control regardless of how fast the scale does or doesn't move & that is a GREAT feeling!!!!

omg you guys not sure what i did, but my tail bone is killing me ~sigh~ i'll have to try to get in to see my chiropractor.

dance class again tonight bollywood woo hoo. we are starting to gear up for our big summer student hafla. a hafla in the middle eastern dance world is a fancy way of saying dance recital. my teacher sells tickets to this event & it ALWAYS sells out. will be a fun evening.

Muna so happy to hear they changed the laws!! I hope that they changed them in time for you to stay there in Ireland with your fam!

Wierdness on the scale this AM, it said I weighted 123.0!?! I LOVE THIS SCALE, it's magical! I weighed myself 2x and went to get my glasses to make sure the 3 wasn't an 8.

It's actually funny bc for the longest time--some here might remember, I was anti-scales bc I didn't want to be obsessed w/ the number and let it "rule" me. Then I decided I would buy one to keep at the boy's apt. However, it got very dusty there, so I brought it back to my place last Sunday and now I want to kiss it! So yeah, it's pretty new--just a few months, and tells the body fat percentage and water % too. It said I had 54% water and 25% body fat. I'm going to weigh myself naked tonight after eating dinner just to see what the discrepancy is.

I'm off to learn some new chemical instruments and then force myself to memorize things for my midterms, then spring break starts next Wed for me, which means visiting the boy's grandparents in Hawaii for 10 days!!

stacey, thanks. You're doing greta yourself. I hope it's nothing major with your tail bone.
