Thanks!!!

I weighed myself today and while its not official I think i'm down again! 188! Not counting it as an official weigh in though. I slept in today so this weight was after noon. lol Hopefully next weekend will show a loss.

I have work off this week and the plan is to paint so that should be good exercise.

I am so sore!! I've been painting for two days and we aren't done. Painting is alot harder work than I though. DH's mom came over yesterday and helped and is coming today to help finish up but she's also bringing my neice today so we probably won't get much done. We've spent 8-12 hours each day working on it with very little breaks.

So on the plus side lots of exercise. On the bad side DH and I ate poorly yesterday. We ordered pizza when we should have made taco salads. We also had ice cream. I am afraid to get on the scale. :P

Tomorrow is our 5 year anniversary! Not sure what we're doing.

Anyway I just thought I'd 'confess' my food transgressions but also report all my 'exercise'.

I best go jump in the shower before my MIL gets here.

Hopefully the exercise out did the eating? I am a calorie counter so it helps me not to overindulge, but pizza is a huge weakness of mine. Sounds like you are getting a lot of painting done.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

Bah! I am back up to 190.0. It was exactly that yesterday and today. But with all the junk DH and I ate last week its understandable. I just thought with all the physical labor it would equal out. I guess not. I also realized yesterday that I hadn't done my morning exercises all week too! So I did them this morning.

Back on track today!!

Only 18 lbs to Disney!!!

Well I did much better this week but still lots of room for improvement. I weighed myself today and it was down to 188.6! I was so happy to see 180s again! I hope it wasn't a fluke and stays that way through the weekend for my 'official' weigh in.

I think my biggest difference is my morning exercises. I took them off last week because I was so sore and because there was stuff from our room in the hall where I usually do them (lame excuse I know). Anyway, I honestly do not think I ate any less than last week if anything I ate more. I tend to only eat 2x a day when I am home but I eat 3 meals a day when I work with snacks. Also it was raining all week so Ginger only got 2 maybe 3 walks tops. She got more walks last week even though she didnt get a daily one most days. But the only thing that I really didn't do at all last week that I did this week everyday was my morning planks, floor exercises and weights. I think it really revs my metabolism or gets my muscles burning calories early. I don't know. I just know its good motivation to keep doing it.

Meanwhile speaking of food...I think DH are NOT going to do a dining plan this year when/if we go. We were thinking we might not anyway but I was hoping for free dining so I was going to go ahead and make some ADRs. However one of the main ones we wanted, CRT, requires prepayment! So I have to pay $150 for a meal I may have in December IF we reach our goal and I can get off work and we can still go. Granted if I cancel before 24 hrs in advance I will get my money back but still. Ugh. :P I don't ever think I spent that much on a meal anyway... Also I couldn't even get a reservation for the date I really wanted. Originally i was going to do either a late night Monday because there are EMH or Tuesday is our MVMCP day so an early dinner that night. However, Only times left on Monday (as of yesterday) were 345 and 845, both are a little too early or late. NOTHING was available for Tuesday. I really think they gave out a TON of free dining pins so everything is booked. :P Also DH and I didnt like being tied to ADRs last time anyway so I think we should try a trip with either NO ADRs or only ONE ADR. I am going to try to get an ADR for Le Cellier for Thursday or Friday this weekend but if we don't get it, so be it. The only other thing I am going to try for is a CP dining package whenever those come out. I hope at least with those I will be on equal footing with everyone else on getting a reservation for those, unlike now when everyone who already has a package reservation has a 10 day lead time on me. :P Though honestly I like the idea of not having any ADRs. I've been reading reviews on all the QS places and alot of the food looks really good. Each park has at least one place I am really excited about and a dozen more DH would love. Also I just want snacks anyway. I want pretzels, ice cream, cookies, cupcakes and yummy things like that! Merry Christmas to ME!

On another note with my new job I am wondering how far in advance I should request the time off. On one hand I feel like I shouldn't be asking for time off so soon after I got the job especially since I just took a week off, but on the other hand I am making all these plans I would hate to not be able to go or have to change my dates. I am thinking I will request it off when I make my official reservation. I like my new job but I guess I am being overly cautious because its really my first 'real' job. I've had lots of other jobs and even other ones within this company but I was always 'hourly salary' meaning I still had to fill out timesheets and have my boss sign off. Now I'm salary. I know 8 hrs a day is definite but so many other people up there (including the dude i am replacing) works way more than that. Right now I don't have enough work to be working that long of hours and I constantly ask for more to do but even then... Honesetly I dont know what that guy does with all that time. he comes in at 630am and doesn't leave til 430 and I am doing probably half his work (i would think). Plus I am still doing alot for my other job. When I work later now its because I'm like 'oh crap i should do some stuff for maintenance' lol Anyway, I guess I just have to figure it out. I need to ask my boss I guess I just feel he will say 'as long as the work gets done I don't care' that seems to be his answer for everything I've asked him thus far. I am losing my 'assistant' which makes no sense but i guess the higher ups think me and the other new girl are going to 'raise the bar' and we won't need an 'assistant' even though the assistant does stuff we won't have time for like filing...i hate filing. lol

Okay enough rambling for now...

Hope everyone is doing well.

First off, I am here Rooting you on! You CAN do it. Look at it like you are MELTING the excess weight off, if you look at it as Losing weight, you can always find what you lost where as if something is melted like a candle you can not get it back. That's what my mom said. Hehehe.

I too have to lose weight. My last trip was last year at age 26. I am over weight and have to lose a few lbs too. My feet/legs were hurting and falling a few at the hotel didn't help either. Eeek.

Anyway... I wish you all the best.

I love your melting reference! Definitely a good analogy!

I can't wait til Disney, but I was so sore last time I am really hoping I am in better shape this next time!

Good luck on your weight loss as well! Do you have a Wish journal too?

DH weighed in today at 304!!!! That means he is a mere 4 lbs to his goal!

I weighed again today at 187.8 but I am going to just keep the 188 for this week's weigh in.

That means I am 16 lbs to goal and he is 4 lbs to goal so that means we are a mere 20 to go out of 100!!!! I am so proud of us!!!

Congrats to you both. This is my first time seeing this thread. My husband and I have been loosing weight too. For our trip in April we had each lost 20 pounds. I had lost 40 prior to that without any company. And I have since lost another 8. I started out last year at 236lbs and am down to 168 so that's a total of 68 pounds in the last year. It's been a struggle, but so worth it. I have 28 more to go.

Wow! Congrats Lemonademouth!!! Very inspirational for me since my highest weight is 240 but that was a few years ago. I was on my way back there again but stopped. My goal of 172 would just take me out of the obese range. At that point I may aim at a 'healthy weight' goal but honestly since i've never been able to get down that low I will be happy to just be forever out of the obese range.

As for me this week I was a little worried. DH and I went to see Man of Steel at the early showing on Thursday and we had popcorn for dinner but it was really bad for some reason so I was still hungry and we stopped for a burger after. :P But I did work out everyday! We even took the dog for her walk before heading to the movie (which we got to over an hr early so we would have a good choice of seats).

But today I weighed in at.....drum roll please....

186.6

I also did monthly measurements and I am down EVERYWHERE!!

1.25 off waist
.75 off hips and bust
.5 off ribcage, thighs AND UPPER ARMS!!
.25 off neck

Woot!! That makes up for last month everything staying pretty much the same even though I am only down 3.4 lbs lower than last month.

DH says he's not weighing in today. :P So not sure how he is doing but he only has 4 lbs left.

I now only have 14!!!!

I only lost .4 lbs this week but I had my period Monday - Friday so I wasn't expecting a loss and actually was going to skip weighing in all together. But my curiosity got the best of me and I weighed myself today and got 186.2.

I will take it. I am not losing a pound a week like I wanted but I am still losing. I probably need to kick up the exercise. If I can get back to a pound a week I will still meet goal in September.

14 lbs to go still... (or even just 13.3 because if its 172.9 I am taking it as goal..lol)
