That is all such great news! It is incredible how strongly your body is able to move you toward health when you lose some excess weight. Congratulations!

Have a great trip and congratulations on meeting your goal! You can definitely keep on plan - listen to your body and your wise-mind most of the time and you'll be fine!

We will get those new clippies next week, you and I! Good luck this weekend. Having a plan is half the battle!

Good luck with preparing for your surgery. You are cracking me up with this idea of mowing while on crutches!

Anyway, last night I decided I'd walk/jog the mile to Super Target, get the items needed, and walk back.

I should be feeling really positive about my WI and last night, but there are some family/personal issues bringing me down. I know they won't get better on their own, but I'm a bit at a loss for how to fix things.
Kudos for shopping under your own power! That's so good.

It's a shame that you can't fully enjoy your weigh-in success right now. I hope the situation improves for you soon or you find a way to improve the situation.

It just goes to show, the scale doesn't know everything!

Oh, the kitten sounds so cute. My mom and sister have fostered feral kittens before. I hope it goes well for you and this little one. It sounds like she's in good hands. I'd love to see a photo.


QOTD: Weekend Plans?


Where to even start! Lots going on including a picnic tomorrow, a lot of driving and two birthdays during the early part of next week. Not to mention Father's Day which we are going to observe today instead of Sunday. I am not sure what I am going to bring to the potluck, but it is BYO grill items which means Morningstar Farms Veggie Dogs and Gardenburgers for us, I'm sure!

I am not getting my 30 pound clippie today. I had a loss of 1.8 and I missed the 30 pound mark by .2 lbs on my official weigh in. Two hours later, of course, I was well under, but I'm just going to say: Next week. Next week..... By which time I will be enduring a lengthy family visit in a very dangerous environment. I have a plan, though, and am not going to get derailed this year as I have every previous summer around this time. I started thinking of all the dangers. The ice cream place, the cookie place, the fudge place, the Sunday brunch, the Italian restaurant. The other Italian restaurant. The gelato cafe. The pizza place. The other pizza place. The third fabulous pizza place. My SIL's kitchen with pies and donuts at all times. Three birthday cakes. The dinner theater. The cocktail parties. The bunco. I could go on. You get the idea.

So to that effect, these rules:

1. We are not buying any cookies to bring home. But each child A cookie, maybe even share a cookie, but NO big box of 1 dozen huge cookies from the cookie shop. It's just a bad idea. I know this from sad experience.

2. Ice cream- same as at home: Only when out, one scoop or cone once or twice a week.

3. Plan healthy meals at home instead of going out.

4. No donuts, no pie, no ice cream at Jeanne's. They are always there, always offered, the answer is just always going to be "no." I don't like them, don't want them, won't eat them.

5. When ordering pizza out with DH, order a small to share and a salad w/dressing on the side.

6. Follow the training plan.

7. Keep up with my daily health/weight loss reading (brainwashing) to keep my head fully in the game at all times.

All that plus continuing to track my food on WW online and keep weighing in with the BL challenge, and I should get through the summer right on track!

Well-- it's bizarre but I lost 2 pounds this week. I guess with all the hoopla I didn't eat that much either...

Hey all, I had a very slight gain this week which has completely stumped me. I worked out, ate within my "points", drank my water, took my vitamin, everything and I gained. And I checked back over the past two weeks and it seems the more I exersize the less I lose. I even tried to eat some of my flex points last week to make up for the extra work outs and I guess that back fired. This week I am eating right at my points target for the week and doing 4 days in the gym at 1 hour cardio each time. A little less than last week but not much. If that doesn't work, I will try to increase my food intake a bit to see if my body thinks it needs more. I am so frustrated but I am not giving up. And I have really been enjoying my time in the gym.

QOTD

1) If I was at WDW right now I would be watching the fireworks over the castle!

2) This week is going to be crazy. I just baked a cake which I have to frost and decorate tomorrow morning, Sunday I am baking a pie to take to a BBQ for fathers day and we have multiple birthdays (5) in the next 4 days. I will try to keep with my water and my morning routine for breakfast and try to lean more towards fresh fruits and salads at the bbq though I will deff have a piece...ok, a sliver of the pie. I purposefully made a type of cake I don't care for so I wouldn't be tempted by it.

Hope everyone has a great week and good job to the losers!

Sarah

I just went through my weekly journal and pmd my cow points. I had no idea how few days I got in enough dairy or veggies. I really thought I had done better than that....I should probably pay more attention to that!

Had a good week this week. Finally got passed my plateau. lost 3.4 and am making plans for more. which brings my grand total loss from when I started WW to 32.6 pounds. I can not believe that I have made it this far... I may actually be able to see me getting to goal. that would be amazing!
I forgot to track my cow points... that Is something I will en devour to do this week.

QOFD: Plans for the weekend
Today will be challenging. I have 2 BBQs to go to but I have created a plan to deal with both of them and I am bringing my own cooler with fresh foods since I have no doubt there will be crap there. If I don't prepare for it, I will succumb to the spread they have laid out.

Tomorrow we are planning to go to the Beach in Savannah so I will be packing a picnic lunch and snacks to get us through the day. I have total control of that so I think I will have a great weekend. Planning to jog along the waters edge and swim a lot then bask in the sun for a while. then Monday back to training at the gym and more cardio.

Still acceptable, but way higher than it used to be. My glucose had been around 110 and that was considered pre-diabetic. I started dieting with the BL 7 challenge and lost 57.5 pounds so far in the last 5 1/2 months. My cholesterol has already gone down to 134 and my fasting blood glucose was 83! My blood pressure has also dropped significantly. I didn't expect such a drastic change so quickly after starting this. I'm not even done losing! Any way, I wanted to share this with everyone to show how much and how quickly losing some extra pounds can improve our health. Come on Losers! We can all get healthier with a little determination.
Great news...thanks for sharing with us, it is so encouraging.

I am feeling bloated, so I wasn't surprised by the number... just disappointed. But I kept up my exercise almost every day this week and I kept up my water and I won't let the disappointment derail me.
Hang in there, the bloat and all will be gone soon, get plenty of water this week and don't let it get you down.

You never know when you say something to someone how it might affect their day in a positive way! I challenge you to give out a compliment today to someone... it might make their day!......................P
What a way to make your day!!! I didn't see the post until this morning, I will give out a compliment today!

Since you've increased your exercise, it may be that your body is letting you know that it isn't getting enough nutrition. You may be using more energy than you realize and your body is holding on to what you are eating because it feels like you are putting it into starvation mode. Maybe play around with your points a little more mixing up your high/low days, etc. Stick to your plan and it will kick back in for you.

I have trouble getting my fruit and dairy in but with the COW it does make me think about it more and try harder to get it in.


I had started this post and had to leave...if I missed you it wasn't intentional and I'll try to pick it back up later this afternoon.

Sorry I never made it back on to post a QOTD yesterday, I'm really not sure where the hours got off to.

With all the different places and functions we had to attend, I feel like I did pretty well in staying on track. This morning for Father's Day, we are fixing a French Toast Casserole but that will serve as breakfast and lunch for us today then I'll plan on eating a salad for dinner.

How is everyone else doing?

QOTD - What is one thing that you can change this week to help you towards a loss on WI day?

I believe if I would just up my exercise I would be able to get back on track for losing instead of maintaining. I know it isn't much but I am going for 3 days of 30 minutes of exercise this week...I just need a jump start again!!

I hope everyone has a great day and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!!

I know that you will get that clippie next week -- you are so close! Super plan to deal with all the temptations of family visits. I'm keeping notes as our big family deal is next month and I will need a good strategy like yours!

Isn't frustrating how our bodies want to hold on to the weight even when we are working so darn hard?!? Keep on doing what you are and it will let go soon. I admire you for being able to bake and keep on target. That would be a downfall for me but you make it work!

Good job staying on plan this week-end! Everyone did such a good job coming up with a strategy and making it work!

Add me to the group that says exercise will help me have a bigger loss on Friday. So, because typing it means it will happen, I will work for an hour in the yard today and exercise 30 minutes a day M,T,W and Th.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there and to the folks who help make their Father's Day special.

Just a quick check in, because I know I do much better when I check in. My weekend started with trip to the er with my mom on friday night, so I didn't get much sleep and went back up yesterday. She was admitted and is having a procedure today to drain the fluid around her lung, and tomorrow another procedure to hopefully prevent it from building up again. I feel so helpless. I did think of you here yesterday because friday i had posted that I was going to get up both days this weekend and to a wapt video, but I didn't get to it yesterday, so today I just did a one hour video to make up for yesterday. It does help relieve some stress, but some mornings I just can't get motivated. Considering all, my eating wasn't too bad yesterday, and starting out today with a healthy bkfst.

today's qotd - I'm going to join you, Lisa and Tammy and up my exercise this week. I'll get up for 4 of the next 5 days and do a 30 min watp tape each morning.

Hope everyone's having a nice weekend.

to you, Kathy, and your Mom and your whole family. I am glad that they were able to help her to feel more comfortable and hopefully, keep the same problem from recurring. Great job on the breakfasts and exercising. It is so hard to do the exercise but you feel so much better when it's done. I don't know why the starting is so hard. Being healthy and taking care of yourself will help you to be there for your Mom and Michael and help you to deal with all the things that are going on in your life. I'm sending some to you and will be sending good thoughts your way.

Popping to say hi everybody and hope you are enjoying any Father's Day celebrations you are doing.
I did my WI yesterday and I'm up just over a l pound. I've been slipping this week and not entering my food right away, which makes it too easier to have unhealthy snacks!
I haven't read all the PM's yet, I'm going to enter them all in tomorrow evening.

So far its been a quiet Father's day for us, me and DD4 & DD7 made brunch. We kept it simple with toast, eggs, turkey bacon and a bit of cheese. The girls were happy to help cook everything. DD4 was very proud that she got to crack the eggs and didn't spill any on the counter

Julianna07 - you're new clippie looks great!


QOTD - What is one thing that you can change this week to help you towards a loss on WI day?
For me, I'm going to do better recording what I eat and try to get the exercising in.

Hi all, just coming by to check in.

For the QOTD....well, I felt really good about how I did last week and I gained, so for this week I am staying right at point...not using any flex this week. If this doesn't work, I will try switching it up again but in a different way.

So far this weekend has been pretty good. Today I have only had a piece of cheese, a slice of pie (1/10th the pie) and 3/4 cup rice from my fav greek restaurant. My DH got a grill for fathers day which he is putting together right now and hopefully we will get to cook our turkey burgers on it tonight. I went to the gym and worked out today and am doing ok on my water - 6 cups so far. I need to get in some veggies, though. I hope everyone is having a great op day!

Sarah

Corinnak - love your last post about how you will stay on track during family visit. Do you have favorite blogs or sites for your healthy "brainwashing?"

QOTD - What is one thing that you can change this week to help you towards a loss on WI day?
Well, this week is going to be a challenge. I found out on Friday at work that I am going out of town AGAIN for this week. My goal is to fit in exercise and limit portions since I'll be eating out every meal. I was out of town for the week preceding 2 weigh-ins ago and gained 0.5 pounds. If I can maintain I'll be okay, and if I can even lose 0.2 pounds I'll be happy. Of course more would be great, but I'm trying to be a realist so that I'm not super disappointed at the next WI.

QOTD: I can actually count points, although I have a feeling I will be down this week just because of everything going on.

We started moving little things in today and I go back on Wednesday for a few days to meet delivery people and get things clean. The previous occupants did a really good job with the vacuuming and thank God we didn't have a bunch of trash or other nonsense left behind, but the sinks and bathtubs are looking icky, particularly the kitchen sink. We also discovered today that they took the fridge, which in the contract was supposed to stay! On Tuesday I have to have a fun colonoscopy and endoscopy so tomorrow no food .

Okay, confession time here: I'm kind of excited for weigh in, because I'm pretty sure that the colonoscopy prep alone will result in weight loss (not to mention eating restrictions today and all the moving around!) It's the one bright spot in this whole big mess! Is that cheating?

No it is not cheating.

Good Monday morning. ONly 2 1/2 more days of school. Today is normal but tomorrow is a marathon. We have to be in at regular time but graduation is not until 4:30 and who knows how long this new principal is going to speak. Our old one was known for nice meaningful but SHORT speechs. It will be over a 12 hour day for me tomorrow.

Lots to do before Friday. I still haven't cleaned the house. I really have to get some clothes together for the next two weeks so I can get dressed easily but I don't know what is going to fit over the bandage. I also have to get some more yarn and some books to read and set up some more embroidery. I did clean my needlework basket out so that there are somethings I can work on and it is right next to the lamp that I like to use. See I am thinking of the important things.

I guess I am nervous about this entire thing even though I know it is simple procedure. My stomach is throwing off too much acid and I am miserable.(my doctor gave me a prescription for this that I will get filled today) Then to top it off I am not sleeping well. The last two nights I have been up every hour on the hour.

Kathy I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I can't imagine what you are going through. You and your mom are in my prayers.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Eeyores Butterfly I have had a colonsoscopy and an endoscopy at the same time. The prep is the worst part of the entire thing. You will do fine. Just have some reading material for the bathroom tonight. This is going to sound strange but if you don't have air conditioning then bring in a portable fan. I got very hot and sweaty during the prep. The procedure is a breeze. You will do great. I hope they can figure out what is causing you all the problems you have been having. Let us know how it goes. Good Luck
