Hello everyone, I am happy to report that I have lost more weight. My niece and her husband are both trying to lose weight so with that and the spiciness of the food here I do not eat as much as I used to. I find it hard to get here most days as the babies are just learning to nap well. I hope that things will sort themselves out soon. Good luck to all.

Sorry I've been missing. I've been sick for 4 days. I need to get back on plan so that I don't get sick.
I like my new WW scale because it doesn't wobble between numbers. I was disappointed that it didn't light up my weight because I'd go in the pantry and not have to turn the light on when I weighed.
I hope everyone is doing well. I accidentally lost some weight, don't know what's up with that. I'm looking for some motivation to help me do better.

Just to let you guys know that I am not dead. Had another medical issue come up...minor trust me but its kind of left me down and out for the last few days. Needless to say, I have not been working out but have been doing pretty good on the eating plan and am down to 189 pounds. Its so awesome to see that 8 on the scale...now every 10 pounds seems like Christmas to me. I am a little on the mend.

I lost the weight I put on with Isaac, I lost two more pounds to go with the ones from Isaac. I think that the babies keep me from having the time for eating even if I wanted to. The weather has cooled down a bit and I am looking forward to winter here.

Thanks Bob..
Has anyone noticed that they have changed the way you edit your sparkpage? I went in to change my weight to be correct and I think it's very user friendly. I also changed my profile picture to 2008 when I was at goal and only 69 years old. What I do in the present will either make my future worse or make it better. I choose better.

Bug, your daughter getting back on plan may just be the thing that will give you the motivation that you need. Good Luck! Darlene, I can understand not knowing where you want to live. We are considering on moving when I retire, but there are so many factors to consider. My wife is always changing her mind. When I brought back some page oranges from a trip to Florida, she wanted to move to Florida since she loves oranges and other fresh fruit. When she found out that my daughter's workplace has another office in San Francisco, she then wanted to move over there since we had a terrific vacation out there. At times, especially in the winter, she would like us to move to her home country of Thailand, but then when we get a few days of extreme heat and humidity in a row, those thoughts are erased from her mind as the three seasons of Thailand are Hot, Hotter and Hottest. Actually a couple of months of the year are quite bearable - maybe late November to early January.

Sorry I've been slacking, more lawyer stuff. Hopefully someday this will go away.
My daughter Kim wants to get back on plan so I am seriously thinking about it. Everything starts with a thought so I'm thinking. I got a new weight watchers scale so I hope it will be good for me. She wants to lose 15 lbs by Thanksgiving. I would love to lose 15 by then, who knows?
Hope all is well with you all. Welcome new members.

Paula, your husband and you are doing a great job, just continue what you're doing! Sion, I can understand you not liking to carry debt, we don't like to do that either. Most of the cars that we have bought over the years have been in cash and when we bought our house back in 1990 for $115,000, we paid our 30 year mortgage off in about 12 to 15 years so that we actually didn't have to pay much interest on the house, and the value of the house has gone up so that it is now worth about $325,000.

Today I went to the city centre again as we needed to pick up our pills and DH decided to weigh himself in the Chemist called Boots. He asked how accurate they are and was told their machine is calibrated at least once every week and that it was done yesterday. I got weighed in a chemist called Superdrug and was told they don't calibrate their machine as often as Boots do.
So I weighed myself today and I have lost 2 pound. emoticon emoticon I knew I had to off lost weight after being so careful that was why I was so surprised when I saw I had lost nothing.
So I am doing it right after all.Now I can record it on my page. DH has lost 3 pounds emoticon he has done really well and is very pleased

However....when you pay cash, you don't have a mortgage so you are not paying any interest. A standard 30 year mortgage will make a 100,000 dollar house actually 250,000 dollars even with these low rates. I am debt free and would like to remain that way. The sacrafice of waiting 1 or 2 more years makes sense to me. Also, the house will be ours free and clear. We wouldn't have to worry if 1 of us lost our jobs or had an accident etc. We would have to come up with yearly taxes and maintenace but that is still better than a mortgage payment every month.

Borrowing any kind of money or paying interest on anything in my opinion is the biggest fallacy that consumers commit. My paycheck is mostly mine after I pay rent and utilities. I don't even have a car payment because I paid that off in 2004. You can't begin to imagine how freeing it is to be debt free. Once you are, you never want that again no matter how good the reasoning is, its not worth it.

We had discussed getting a house that had a payment close to our rent, but we would rather wait the extra 2 years to just build the house we really want. Even though we could get a decent house, you still have maintenance, taxes, etc so it can be more expensive even then. Our rent is really great for an 1150 square foot apt at 600 dollars monthly, so we will make the sacrafice for now.

Sion, I'm just curious why you would wait until you can afford to pay for your house in cash before you buy it? Is it a matter of principle or not wanting to owe anybody anything? The reason that I'm asking is because, financially it would seem to make a lot more sense to buy now with a mortgage. Mortgage rates are historically low and if you got a 10 year mortgage, you could always pay it off early so that it is completely paid off in 3 years. I'm guessing that your rent that you are paying isn't that much different than what your mortgage would be, so if you buy now rather than continue paying rent, it would almost be as if you are getting free rent for the next three years. I don't expect house prices to have any increase or at least not any significant increase in the next three years, however, if they do increase, then you have to cover that additional cost as well.

It sounds like you are doing everything perfectly and have a great attitude. I've had this team 5 years and never came across someone doing things right and not losing. I have to do very low calories plus fasting to lose any weight. If you've had experience fasting you could try that to move the scales but it really isn't required. That also is a great tool, especially if you haven't been doing it. I would sometimes lose 4-5 lbs but our bodies are very survival orientated so after you do it awhile you don't get that big result but more like 2-3 lbs. Surprising enough I didn't gain after quitting my fast. Anyway, good luck and don't give up. This is a scientific plan, not just a fad diet..

My DD consists of 2 shakes I can only get the Atkins shakes that work out at 164 calories for each shake thats 328 calories
A cupof soup for lunch I chose a 79 calorie soup
Snack 1 apple weighed so I get 50 calories
Total 457 calories

Up Days I eat 1200 calories of carefully weighed foods so in theory I should lose weight. I always eat so I am satisfied and not full DH says I am eating too little but I am satisfied and not hungry and not full.
I focus on the fact that I am losing weight and feeling better and really really beleive it. Each day I chose my affirmation and a mantra to lose weight and get healthy.
So positive thinking is there and I was really surprised when the scales showed no weight loss.
More modification is needed and I will see what the following week brings, less on the DD and see what I can do with the Up Days but 1200 calories should do it.
Exercise is walking and chair exercise alternating both so I get a good mix of things.
Never give up is my moto and I will find a way yo shed the pounds so I am healthier.

I loved your affirmation blog and pictures so much that I directed my daughter, -iamoverhere- to your page. We are both law of attraction fans and what you say you get, what you think on draws it to you, good or bad.

You cannot talk defeat and expect to have victory. Send your words out in the direction you want your life to go.
Joel Osteen

As to not losing, how many calories do you eat on the up days. On the up day Dr. says the higher number is not the amount to eat and says to only eat until satisfied. (not full) Dr Johnson says if you are not losing weight that you are eating too many down day calories. Is your 500 estimated? That's why he recommends shakes. I use EAS Carb Advantage for 110 calories and lots of protein.
He also says we all underestimate the calories we consume. Are you drinking at least 8 glasses of water? Do you get enough sleep? Sleep is the renewing of our bodies and the time that our bodies heal our cells.
I hope this helps because this plan does work. I have to eat less than most do to even lose a lb, so while some eat more, some of us can't. One thing I do know is that when you are losing and reach goal, you cannot go back to old habits because if you do and you gain weight, the plan doesn't work as well as it did the first time.

Paula...you have to really diligently track every single bite of food you take. I even will choose more fattening options to track so that I don't cheat myself. Sometimes we take little bites here and there without realizing it or we underestimate the amount we are trully eating. You have to weigh, measure everything. Also be sure to drink a lot of water. Move whenever you can.

Everyone is different. I would give it one more week doing the suggestions above and if you still don't have results, then this may not be the eating plan for you. Everyones body is different, I can't imagine why this wouldn't work but I also know that chemistry is different for everyone

I am also a big believer in postive thinking and the power of attraction. The more you fret about it or stress out or become nervous about the scale, you are setting yourself up for failure. You must think I am getting thinner everyday. Make this your new mantra. Be happy as you visualize this and believe it with all your heart. You will manifest it in your life. I am convinced that I have had such fabulous results because of this component. Be aware of the thoughts in your head. If they are negative or fearful about what if I don't lose weight, then this is what will happen. Remember...I am getting thinner every day....I am getting thinner every day.

I love to shop, but have to take it in spurts...........a spurt to find a specific item.
Until I lose enough where joints don't stress, and so forth, I have to limit my time
on concrete floors....

Me!!! I am so ready for cooler weather! Florida is not as hot as other parts of the country, but I get so tired of month after month of 90s and humidity emoticon

It is fun to shop when you are smaller, even if it's in your own closet. I had saved a lot of pants in smaller sizes that I am able to wear again although I had some that were not flattering even though they fit (you know, the high waisted, too short, tapered "mom jean" style - how did I end up buying those in the first place??! lol. never again).

Had a crazy busy weekend and hardly had time to even rest but it was an exciting weekend. Got a real bedroom set for the first time in my life and I absolutely love it! My apartment is starting to feel more like a home which is good because we have decided to pay cash for our house and not take on a mortgage so we will be in that apartment for at least another 3 years. It took my husband 9 hours to get the bed together....I owe him big time.

Spent the entire weekend shopping. I am finally shopped out. I finally came to the realization this weekend that because I love my new body, the most everything I try on will look really good and that I have enough clothes. I still have clothes in my closet that I haven't worn yet. I have so many combinations and dresses its ridiculous. I did get everything on sale which is why I have so much but enough is enough. I did donate 2 more bags of clothes to good will and am now down to size 14 pants from size 26.

Anyone else ready for winter weather. Living in Texas, I really am. You just get sick of the heat after awhile. I hope everyone has a good holiday weekend. I am currently at work slaving away at my desk.
