Good Morning All!!!!!

For those of you with busy weekends...I hope you have a lot of fun and accomplish much!! Maria that party sounds like a lot of fun!!

What is the most crucial lesson you have learned from this summer?

I have learned that weight loss is not a part time goal or something you do on the side, it is a full time commitment and if you aren't ready to give it your all to making yourself a healthier you no matter what you do you won't see the goals achieved! I have had to change my frame of mind a complete 180 and really make weight loss and healthy lifestyle choices a priority. It isn't easy to do, but I'm in it for the long haul. As the previous poster mentioned, the accountablity and support that you can get from others is HUGE!!

QOTD: The most crucial lesson I've learned this summer is that if you actually follow a weight loss plan daily, the weight will fall right off! I don't know why it's taken me so long to figure that out! I used to treat myself to a bad snack for being good on my diet, and it doesn't work that way, obviously. I'm down 2 pant sizes now, so I must finally be doing something right!

I haven't gotten any exercise in this week because of my cold. I had to work last night and I'm exhausted, so I'm going to go ahead and sleep a few hours, and hit the WW meeting in the morning to weigh in. It's gray and rainy today, which makes for very good sleeping weather!

We're all home tonight for the first time in I don't know how long. Me and DH are both off, and the girls don't have any activities past 5pm, so I think we'll play some Wii so I can coordinate my exercise with our fun time.

Good morning everyone! I had a surprise 1 pound loss at today's weigh in. I feel like I was only OP for half the week, but something worked, I guess. Sometimes weight loss is mysterious.

QOTD: What is the most crucial lesson you have learned from this summer?
I have learned that healthy eating gets bigger results than exercise alone. I love food, so all Spring I was trying the I'm "kind of eating better and I'm exercising 6 days a week". 3 or 4 months of that and I only lost 2 pounds. I finally started looking at calories and really focusing on what I was eating. On plan weeks I can pretty consistently lose 1-2 pounds. I've definitely had up and down weeks this summer, but I've gotten back on plan much, much faster each time than I would have without BL.

Hey all.

QOTD: The most cruicial lesson I have learned this summer is that I AM capable of getting right back on that wagon after I slip. In the past I have always been all or nothing. I have had a couple of times this summer that I have slipped up for a few days but I have always been able to get back op way faster than I ever have before (months sooner!)

As for weight, well, I posted about that earlier but I have a great feeling about this coming week! Lets make it a great one!

Sarah

Happy Weigh In Day!
Although, I had another gain of 1.1 pounds. I actually thought I'd made it through the week OP; my splurge at Tony Roma's last weekend, just used up the flex points. Sometimes a gain I'm not really expecting is followed by a great loss, so hopefully I'll end next week with a bang!

Thanks pjlla for coaching, and thanks to our final weeks coach, Worfiedoodles!

This summer, I've learned that its okay to make mistakes, it slows down my journey, but each time I recover and the trend is still downwards. I've also learned that I'm my own worst enemy and when I'm willing to put in enough effort, I do great, so I really know I can do it, and I know I can slip and just do minimal damage. Right now, I'm only down a couple pound since the start of the challenge, which is way less than hoped for. On a positive note, I've shown that I can maintain

I truly enjoy the challenge, and am looking forward to a more successful fall challenge

And this is a great QOTD, I've enjoyed reading everybody's answers

I have realised that in order to be succesful with losing a lot of weight, I need to take it slow and steady. If I just wanted lose 10 pounds or so for a vacation, I could lose it fast by being very strict about my exercise and what I eat. However, I want to lose more like 60+ pounds. I need to remember that in order to do that I need to allow myself a little more breathing space. If I really want chocolate, then I have it. If I am having a week where it is just not working, I don't just have a week off and then give up forever. I have a week off and then get right back on track.

This is a long road. I need to appreciate the journey as well. So it takes me a little longer to get there. At least I have enjoyed the ride.

I have gained a pound this week because I took a week off the diet. Now, I am going to get right back on track. No recriminations about gaining weight or slipping off my diet. This is a lifestyle change and I can do this!!

What is the most crucial lesson you have learned from this summer?

I assume you mean in regards to healthy eating/weight loss. I learned that I can have a good time without it always revolving around over-eating and that NO MATTER WHAT, that I MUST keep up my exercise routine.

I went away for July 4th (about 5 days away) and only had a modest gain which I lost immediately. I exercised 4 out of 5 days we were there... sometimes for more than 60 minutes.

I took DS away to OOB, Maine (3 days) and had a very small gain (darn those deep fried Oreos!) and managed to exercise almost every day we were there, in addition to walking the beach.

I took DD away to Baltimore for 4 days and LOST weight that week (even though dinner one night was an entire half of a Dominoe's pizza). I exercised every day we were there but one (because I hurt myself).

We went away for our family vacation just a week or so ago. I managed to journal every bite of my food for the first 5 days before I kind of got off kilter. I exercised EVERY morning at about 6:00 am. I ate my usual healthy meals for both breakfast and lunch EVERY DAY, and a healthy dinner most nights, but I did splurge on dessert most nights. I did have a small gain, but it is almost all gone already.

So any how... now that I made a short story long, that is what I learned above all else this summer.................P

Sorry guys, another day ahead of not being a very good coach -- I still have the sleepover kid and company, and it's their last day so I have to run around and I can't reply to each post. I promise to be a vigilant and much better coach tomorrow!

Here's the weekend QOTD for today and tomorrow, something fun!:

If you were a Disney princess, which one would you be? I know some people say they're more like villains or don't have a girly bone in their bodies, but pick a quality in a particular princess that you identify with!


Maria

Hey everyone,

We got back at 11:30m on Tuesday night. We had a fantastic trip and I even managed to get most of the first week done with a live trip report

Check out my trip report here:

http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2251829

I WI today with a gain of 3.8 from the morning we left. When we arrived home this past Tuesday night, my Wendesday morning scale said I gained 9 pounds so to have lost 5.2 since Wednesday morning -YEAH! It was all water, and Wednesday I didn't eat 100% great (maybe 50%), so the fact that I got serious on Thursday and Friday and lost all that proves that if you get in gear quickly after you get back most of the "water weight" will come off.

I like Molli have always had problems with gaining after a vacation. 19 days in Disney with half of them being on free dining really was tough, although it wasn't until the end that my clothes felt differently and my jean shorts still had room in them on Tuesday when I came home so I knew it wasn't that bad. When I saw the # on the scale on Wednesday in the 170's I was really sad, but when it jumped down in the 160's again I was so happy!

For me - it's that if I come back from a vacation and get back on track I CAN recover.

Welcome back - I hear you about the vacation weight issue! I have the same issue and usually get off track each year after it.

Well my answer isn't so much about the character of the princess but I identify myself with Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty because we are both only daughters in our family and we both fell in love with a Prince Phillip! So that makes her my favorite and the one I would be!

So what rules are we using to define "Disney Princess"? Does Mulan count? She's featured at Princess Breakfasts. So is Mary Poppins, right? If I can be Mulan, I'll pick her because she rocks. She knows Kung Fu and is clever and honorable, plus also she is friends with a little DRAGON!

If it has to be a REAL princess, I guess I'd choose....Cinderella - she cleans up nice and can outrun the Prince!

Ariel has always been my favorite, but my personality is a lot more like Belle - loves to read, doesn't fit in, wants some adventure, and unexpectedly meets a prince-in-disguise.

Hmm......interesting question that I've never thought of.

I'd say Belle as well for the reading, adventure

But I'd have to say Cinderella is the one that always takes my breath away. Her beauty and style is just so beautiful.
