GOING FOR THE NEW AND FITTED ME
I ate better today. Yesterday was the first day I've gone over my calories for a long time. I got up early and did an Insanity workout and I walked to the park with my students today. I played on the equipment with them and then we walked home. Tomorrow I hope to try out my new running shoes!
Super late check in for me today. The sun stayed behind the clouds today and I was so hoping to get outside like yesterday..
I've been battling the dreaded gastric problem that I'm trying to get rid of.. It wears me down as everything I eat seems to turn to gas in my upper digestive tract and it really hurts. No Dr has ever been able to sort this for me in over 25 years.. it comes in spells, then disappears for awhile and on and on.. I did run out of probiotics and they do seem to help, so a trip to the health food store is on my agenda.
Sure sounds like a lot of people are having a good day!

Sorry to here all that going on but will keep them both in prayer and you as well. Hope you get better so you can get back on the journey.

Hi All, I walked the dogs and had my toe nails painted. It stopped raining and the sun came out. It was even a little warm today. I took Mom to the grocery store. Best wishes on a great day. Linda from bean town

Great weigh in this morning. Enjoyed watching the kids with friends ride a fire truck to school this morning followed by a nice bootcamp workout with my best friend, my husband. Then I brought a few things to the consignment shop and dry cleaners. My son had an awesome preschool graduation. The owner gave a great speech that made me cry. Now I am waiting to watch my oldest daughters gymnastics show.

Still a little under goal weight!
Haven't been really active this week--too much time in the car--visiting nephew in hospital, taking daughter for oral surgery--then there has been the fact that I have been trying to stay out of sun to get this parsnip burn to heal up as quickly as possible--it really sucks!
Nephew is doing really great after his brain surgery tho--and my daughter is doing well after her wisdom tooth (all 4) extraction yesterday--she's back at work today. Her tongue is still numb tho :(

Ladies we just can't get all bent out of shape when we put a pound or two back on. We just have to start all over and try just a little more harder.

Xraylady, you have done so well! Is this perhaps the weight your body wants to be? I know I would like to weigh 135, but each time I get down to 140-ish, my body gravitates back to 143-145. If you really want that next goal, would it help to go to an expert, perhaps a nutritionist? Perhaps there is some food/nutrition combination that would help you break the plateau.
For the rest of the posts, I can just feel the bubbly excitement over weekend plans! Kayaks and boats and just enjoying life! DH and I are going to a spa nearby for the weekend. I gave him this weekend Christmas before last (we frequently give "vouchers" for experiences in the coming year rather than give more things), but he never seemed to have the time to use the "voucher." It won't be the couples "romantic package," because the spa isn't offering it right now, but at least we will be there together.
Maintaining since May 19, 2012
I am so frustrated..... I go down I go back up I go down I go back.... I am trying to get back to first goal weight of 141.... ( today 146) and then lose another 5# for a new goal weight and have been at it since first of year ... and cant get there.... not sure what I am doing wrong...
Then yesterday at work a coworker asked me.... don't you ever want to eat ice cream or chips or anything bad for you...... HELL YA!!!!! but I am always thinking is it worth it.... do I want to gain 100# back ,.... HELL NO....
I do eat ice cream and chips and stuff but in moderation..... when my grandsons come from texas I will take them to DQ and I will get a mini blizzard... not a small but a mini.... that will be my splurge... and I will know what I have to do to work off that splurge....

Hello friends! Good Friday to you!
It's been a while since I've checked in, but still going strong. I don't report on races and such because I don't do them. BUT I sure stay busy working, walking, shopping, cleaning, and taking care of the 'farm' (mini farm, that is).
Weight is holding steady. I had a 122 weight reading yesterday--my lowest ever, but back to 123.2 today. Just part of the flux. I am trying to maintain, but it bumped down again (to 122). So, I guess I'll eat a few crackers or a small piece of cheese with my vegetable soup today.
Having one of my BFF over to hang out today--- she requested our 'down on the farm' vegetable soup for lunch. The soup is on!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
And to any of you dad's out there . . . Happy Father's Day!
Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.
SW: 275-276 Ht. 5'6"
GW: 135 (goal range: 130-140)
CW: WAS 124.7 NOW: 143.5
My focus is health AND fitness! And LOSING 10 lbs. again!
(I'm STILL getting
there . . . )
Hurray for Friday! I hope everyone has a great day!
I am so grateful for you ladies. It keeps me going forward every morning knowing that I am not alone in this ongoing battle....somedays, it is easier than others, but I don't know if maintenance will ever be natural or easy for me. Yesterday, I was in the middle of my goal weight range. At 1300 cals and very balanced and fairly "clean", but this morning I was 1.4 pounds up! So frustrating! Not sure why, and tired of even trying to figure it out. I just know that if I keep doing the right things, then EVENTUALLY, the scale will catch up (or not), but at this point in time, with a full time job, my sis to look after(and try to keep up with the house as best I can), plus my committments at church, there is just no more time. I will just keep working on trying to capitalize on the "free" snippets of time and continue to add in little bits of finess into those minutes and keep praying for a job that will put some regularity and consistency into my schedule.

Hey! It's Friday!
A lot of great memories out there.
I got out of the TOM funk last night, walked the dog, jumped on the elliptical then some ab work.
DD is coming in on the train tonight to spend the night by me, then we're picking up a friend's son in the morning and will meet DS at the Warrior Dash. Fingers crossed the rain holds out.
I'm not going to think about my time, just want to get through it safely!
Have a lovely day!

Thanks y'all for the kind words about my anniversary story. Good thing it fell on Wed since last night we had monster storms around here. Power went out around 4 and didn't come on till way after 10, when I went to sleep. We're pretty well prepared for power outages and ever since Hurricane Irene in the fall of 12, it goes out when the storms are windy. So MANY trees had to be left leaning through so many miles of countryside that pretty much any thunderstorm pushes one over somewhere. It's not such a problem in town so the library stayed open.
Got in 30 minutes of step aerobics before leaving for work and packed my dinner so I was spot on with the calories. Scale was right where it's supposed to be this morning. I weigh myself every day. Done it for decades and I don't really beat myself up when I see a weight gain. But I'm still new enough at this maintenance that I sometimes feel funny when the scale doesn't move down. I have to remind myself that hey - right. Maintenance. not weight loss.
Oh yeah - and FridayFridayFridayFridayFriday! Whoopee
It's time to be outside. Camping! Boating! For me today, the kayak goes in. Meeting a friend for an hour paddle. Hello arms and shoulders!
Last night our college student son was home and took us to an oyster bar. It was great fun and oysters are wonderful eating, I think. (I know this is not unanimous opinion...) My Pacific Northwest origins came to mind. There were both VA and WA oysters on the menu. Anyway, have not eaten them for awhile and brought back memories of my parents on Hoods Canal, in WA, eating them right from the beach.
Ah. A delicious memory that isn't calorie laden (-: Who says Maintenance can't be fun.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
Go slow to go fast.
Maintaining since September 15, 2012
Short run with hubby this a.m., cleaning my basement and laundry. I'll get out in the garden this afternoon.
I know what you mean about the difficulty maintaining - I've tried adding calories, etc. but it just goes up:( I also exercise quite a bit. Frustrating, I know.

It's Friiiiiidaaay! Good morning!
I've been up since 2 a.m., so didn't get much sleep. One reason, it's that "little kid" excitement as we are headed to the River/houseboat today after work (and hoping to be able to leave early!!) and I've got things to pack and get ready, some chores to finish (after all, there's that voice in my head that says "you can play when you finish your work"--the voice I have had to talk back to, saying, but now that I am an adult, there's no way I can finish all my work--I need some play time to keep my life in balance!
Bess, loved the camping/young love story! I love reminiscing about those old times, and taking a moment to remember who we were, the crazy chances we took, who we are now, how those experiences shaped us into the person we are today and the character we gained. Happy anniversary to you and "Himself!!" (you'll have to share the story of his nickname sometime, too!)
DH and I walked after dinner again last night for 30 min. This is a nice routine, gives us time to catch up on the day and get a little more exercise. He's doing great; I'm very proud of him.
My 90 min at the gym today is 30 min elliptical, 60 min RIPPED class. Healthy nutrition choices yesterday, and even though calories were under 1500, it seems I need to stay more in range of 1000 to 1200, or less, so as not to gain weight. Kinda sucks when there's no "unhealthy" choices to cut, and exercise is already at high range. Maintaining isn't easy for me.
Okay, off to create a fantastic day! Hope you all have a great one, too!
