Life Goals...

2. 20 day review & dr appt for son Weds W: Yes
3. Find something positive each day (been focusing on some negative stuff so stealing this goal) M: My hubby rode the bike to come see me on my lunch break and I still got to walk 1-1/2 miles. We are in such an awesome place with each other right now. , T: Got in another night time workout. Doesn't seem to be holding me back anymore, W: How much better can it get than I LOST 100 POUNDS!!


Most of my Wednesday was already reported yesterday so not much new there. So far I am holding the weight loss. Actually dipped a little lower again today. I am holding out waiting for the inevitable bounce that almost always happens after I lose 6-7lbs. But as long as the weight would like to drop a little each day for me that is just fine! Wearing a new top and new size 16 dress pants today to work. They must be very flattering because the compliments are plenty today.

Not much posting going on last night.

Thank you guys for the congrats on my reaching 100lbs. I figure I have 50 more to go before evaluating what will be a comfortable maintenance weight. I do not want to be skinny. I want to be healthy and look good in clothes.

April CONGRATULATIONS! Couldn't have said it better myself (because I don't know how to import all that stuff!)

That is such a significant achievement and you should be very proud. Keep up the good work. I have 60 to lose and it seems some days like such an impossible goal, but seeing this makes me more confident that it CAN be done.

Hi everyone,

Well I had a little slip yesterday - didn't do horribly, just enough to get me off track and now I'm up a pound. I didn't log last night or even look at the computer, fell asleep instead (must have really needed it!). Then I overslept this morning and hadn't prepared anything for breakfast, so I had some whole wheat crackers and now I'm already at 13 carbs for the day! I think I can still stay on track though, as long as I'm good the rest of the day.

Here are my stats so far this week:

<1400 calories: M: 1329; T: 1536; W: 1739
Net Carbs < 20: M: 17.4; T: 18.2; W: 43.9
Water >64(oz): M: 50; T: 40; W: 45
exercise: M: no; T: no; W: no, slept instead
Vitamins: M: yes; T: yes; W: yes

I'm on track with food, water, and exercise except that I did have a minor cheat last night with an illegal food--about 2 tablespoons of milk because I was craving something sweet. I can eat any kind of cheese, sour cream, whey protein to get in dairy, just not milk. But I did make myself have no more than that "sip" so I'm proud of myself for that.

Where's Hope?

Quinn--planning what trip? Did that mean the trip to pick up DD from Mackinaw this weekend or another trip after that?

Luv, thanks for your encouragement. It's past 10:30AM and I haven't eaten breakfast yet. Skipping meals due to being busy is not good for weight loss or management of health issues. I'm going to eat as soon as I submit this post. You had a spectacular Tuesday report! I'm so glad for you that your health group is starting back up again.


I am so far behind again--just haven't had time to read the posts but I will try hard to catch up later today after the gym, visit from grandkids, and errands.

Cate ... Don't feel too bad about sleeping instead of exercising. Sometimes your body knows more about what it needs than your mind does. Thank you so much for your kind words about my loss. It really is doable. It just takes time and that is hard to remember when you want it so bad. I just keep telling myself that I didn't get to 331lbs in a week, month or even year so it certainly won't come off any faster than that.

Mern ... Take care of yourself. That means eating too. You know how it messes with your blood sugars to skip meals. Don't make us get a whip out after you next!

Doing a backpacking trip in the Smokey Mountains this fall. Trying to get my lodging figured out.
