No one posting here anymore, but if you happen to check this out, we have a spreadsheet where we keep our weight. Come over and add your name and weight. Come back every Monday. Lack of posting will result in your name being removed.

This seems almost easy because it's such a small, doable goal. I'm down a pound and a half and delighted about it.

My latest week's loss is not showing up on the spreadsheet total, though. Anyone else having this problem?

Well, I'm a day late and a dollar short, but I noticed my weight creeping up and that's a trend I don't need, so I'm in!

One week has passed since I was so happy to get into the sixties and I weigh the same. I am grateful that I didn't gain cause I had a little binge last night and the night before at bedtime. That is my dangerous time and I am going to have to figure out a way to outsmart my cravings then!

I am so happy to report I got out of the seventies and weighed in at 169 this AM. I have a long, long way to go to get to an acceptable weight for my height but everything helps and now I can look longingly toward the fifties!

I just have to flap my wings. I weighed in at 118 this morning. My goal is 115. I am so pleased with me. Have not seen that weight for many many years. I have been doing WW for 143 days. I hope I will make goal with me you never know. I have been doing so good. I feel great. I had to go buy all new summer cloths. Everything was saggy baggy. What a good feeling.

This site is an extension to the chat site. We used to do all our chatting here until it got so some would not chat because the did not want to be on the challenge. So we started the chat group so we would have some where to just chat and used this site just to post our weight.
But whatever works for you is all right because we are here to lose weight and be healthy.

Ok, I just dropped my first 5 lbs. emoticon So, I am on my way.

I started with Curves and have gone twice so far, plus walked on my treadmill for a few minutes for the days inbetween. So, the body is starting to move. Now to keep it up. One day at a time.

I'm new and just signed into the Chat site, but I saw this and thought this would be a good incentive to stay on the plan.

I have 150 lbs. to lose - same 150 I have been trying to dump for the past 20 years. But I now feel that I may have what it takes to get serious about this. And I should be able to lose 5 lbs. in a week - first week of the diet - if I'm lucky. After that, I can't make any promises.

Hi all!

I have a sad thing to report to most of you. Someone has almost wiped out our spreadsheet. I went to look at it to see if there were some things that needed fixed and most of the names and weights are gone and there is no way to fix it. I guess we will either have to start over or I will have to make it so no one can change it except me. It was working so good, too.

I went to water exercise this AM. First time since before the holidays. I now feel very tired but I know it is important to tone up my muscles as much as I can to get ready for surgery. Hoping this will help me to do better with my eating.

Now that I have knee replacement scheduled for March 21st., I have every reason on the world to lose a lb. or more. Of course I had every reason to do that before but I didn't do it. Hmmm--that is something for me to really face up to!

Surprisingly this morning my weight was the same as it was when I left. Not sure what it will be on Monday. Funeral dinner tomorrow. And always too many tempting foods. Maybe I should just keep busy and not eat? Like that is going to happen.

Hi, girls:

Gee, it's been so long since I was on again!!!
So good to see you again Iris, Reva, Lee!!
We've had a terrible time since Sept. I hope 2011 will be better. My sister-in-law died in 3 weeks after she was told she had Acute Leukemia Myo.something!!! 3 wks!!
We're still not handling it well. My 2nd surgery in Nov. has my ankles so swollen it looks like I have sox rolled up at the ankles. Haven't gotten back to tennis YET!!
Doing exercises in the pool at 24hr.Fitness lately!

My DD&sil & family of 9 came down on Thurs, staying 6 more days at Ft. Lauderdale beach. Then 5 of them (DD, DGD & 3 ggd's) are coming to me for 1 more day next Fri.
This is a whirlwind week. Hope the weather stays nice. They love the beach. I cover up!!

I've been watching my diet(sort of!) I lost a few lbs, so far. I'm avoiding the snacks!!! I go down by ounces!!
Hey, whatever works, right?
Hugs,
Audrey

I don't think the patty had too much fat. I like cooking for myself because I can adjust spices. But you have to put up with what the kitchen has prepared that day.
Actually, I'd be as big as an elephant at those retirement places that serve meals because I just can't resist desserts!
Tonight I am going to theatre and before going out to a fish restaurant. I hope I can keep my hand out of the bread basket!

The diet is going so-so. Last night I ordered flounder and it was so loaded with seasonings I could not eat it--there must be one cook here who thinks the more spices the better and he poisons some of the food for me. I had to ask for something else to eat last night and I accepted a beef patty cause it was cooked and I did not want to hold up dinner for the the other couple we were eating with but who knows how much fat was in the beef patty. Also I cannot do much exercise because of the constant knee pain and I know that is a big problem for me. Last night on "The Biggest Loser" the doctor told one woman that she had the biggest fat content in her body of anyone he had ever met. I figured if he met me he might find another one. I was reading about food cravings--when you get the food you want there is an immediate reward in the brain--Serotonin floods in I think--and I must adore Serotonin cause I sure crave chocolate and have wanted it my whole life. The only way I can get away from it is to banish it altogether. Horrors.

I did consult the dentist--apparently I have to wait for the socket to heal before he can do anything. I just was looking at core exercises here and looked at the first one and decided I could do it. I bent over and put my fingertips on the floor and had to move further and put my hands down and then got my leg up and down in a hurry and then the other leg. I decided that was enough and had a heck of a time standing up straight. Almost didn't make it. Wow--am I out of shape! I must have been gasping for a few minutes. CHANGES MUST BE MADE.!!

Kathy that's a REAL problem. I think you ought to consult the dentist. They can tell immediately if your bite is thrown off. They use what looks like carbon paper and check where the points on your teeth are.

Since this site is about wt. mainly, let me indulge myself and talk about more troubles--this will be boring, don't bother to read if you don't feel like it. I am having such trouble eating since I had that tooth pulled Dec. 14th. That was on my chewing side and I can't seem to chew on that side because {I think} the extraction threw my bite off and when I try to chew I get a toothache in my upper jaw. So that leaves the other side, where I haven't chewed for years because of missing bottom teeth. I got a bridge years ago but don't use it cause I hate it and I had the side I can't use now. So Iam trying to order soft foods like fish and omelets. That gets pretty tiresome and sometimes I order stuff that I can't chew so well. Now I'm going nuts with tons of gas. Either I have some problem I don't know about, or I think I can't chew my food well enough and I'm swallowing chunks of unchewed food and my insides are unhappy. I had an Aunt who wound up with a Colostomy and the doctor said it was because she lost her teeth and couldn't chew. I don't know--there are plenty of toothless people who can gum down anything. Are they full of gas? I don't know. Last night I took a dose of Phillips new "Colon Care" and I'll see if that helps. I am not due to get a new bridge till late March or April.

Yeah Kathy. I thought so too.
And it made me think a bit.
You are right about the body catching up. I mean, we stay in control for ONE day and are disappointed when the scale doesn't go down. But our bodies don't work like that.
My scale is up because of the binge a few days back and I was careful (very) yesterday. But psychologically I'm disappointed that I'm not down a few pounds. I know it is crazy but I still think that way.
Let's just hang in there.

That's a very profound statement you sent to us, Marlene. I weighed this morning, was disappointed cause I had a fair eating day yesterday, got to thinking and remembered my binge a couple of days ago. Even when we forget our body still has to deal with all the extra calories and cannot forget. And our body has to put the extra flesh somewhere and my poor body is running out of the usual places to put the extra calories--if I don't stop overeating one of these days I will have fat ears!

Boy, does this step on toes.

HEALTHY REFLECTIONS

Self-love is the only weight-loss aid that really works in the long run.- Jenny Craig, diet guru

Battle scars from the Diet War

Like Martha Graham, who said that "The body is a sacred garment. It's your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with, and it should be treated with honor," Jenny Craig seems to know a thing or two about caring for your body and your self. In the Garden of Eden, eating was modeled as one of life's most pleasurable experiences. But then Eve took a bite out of that apple (so much for the low calorie, low fat, high fiber theory), and women (and men) have been at war with food ever since. Both of these quotes reflect this fact. Are your weight issues really a symptom of something else--boredom, depression, regret, or rejection? At the root of many issues is our self-loathing at worst, our self-indifference at best. Food is not the enemy. We are. Break the cycle of dieting and replace it with loving yourself enough to make good choices about your diet. Examine your eating habits this week. Are you honoring your body with your food choices? How can you love yourself back to a healthy relationship with eating? Take steps towards defeating the natural compulsion or craving that might take you down a path of regretful eating. Remember the sacredness of your own skin.

My problem is, if I can't find something, I will mix up something and eat it. I do fine until I start and then I can not stop until I feel miserable. We have all these protein bars for DH to eat but I think I eat more of them than he does. Some of them are not really all that good.

Reva, you are so right--if it's in the house, sooner or later I will eat it. I always keep kidding myself and assure myself that I will have control--like just one piece of chocolate a day--but along comes a binge. DH has a NEED to have chocolate candy here at all times and he has to hide it. I used to sneak some of his and he never noticed so finally I had to tell him and gave him a tin box and told him to put it away--like on a tall shelf where I would have to get the step ladder to reach it and we are doing pretty well. Every now and then he gets lazy and puts it in a dresser drawer and I start helping myself. He is not fat--maybe a few lbs. overweight but nothing like me. Sigh. Last night I found a hollow Santa that we got in our Christmas basket--Like those hollow bunnies, foil wrapped, you get at Easter. I had forgotten it and ate a big piece last night and I suffered with gastric reflux. When I leaned over to take off my shoes the bile, I guess, was pushed up into my stomach--a nasty feeling and taste. I am telling myself it was definitely the chocolate that did it and not the spicy soup I had for dinner. I will throw away the rest of the Santa--DH has plenty of candy and does not need to know about it.

Oh I got a real hoot out of that Kathy!
Yesterday I bought a box of cookies and ate half the box. I felt really lousy after but I threw away the rest. It isn't possible for me to keep ANYTHING around like that.
I thought i had it under control and could just have 110 cals but it just doesn't work that way for me.

So after all these years you would think I KNOW the consequences of BUYING that stuff.
I'm back on the straight and narrow. Just have to keep moving forward.

I notice a new expression--when somebody does something wrong instead of saying, "My fault", they say, "My bad". I'm usually the last person to notice things like that but I have noticed that one lately and I have to say my bad where my eating is concerned. However I am writing it down. Yesterday I had a binge after lunch but I at least wrote it down. I didn't figure the calories but I know they were high. I will tell you a funny that somebody sent me as near as I can--sort of a prayer--"Dear Lord, for this year all I ask is a fat bank account and a slim body. Please don't get them mixed up like you did last year". Irreverent maybe but funny.

My weight climbed all the way to 229 this past year. emoticon I could say "I don't know why," or "it was because of all the stress," or "It wasn't my fault." emoticon But why deny it: it was because I ate too much, too often. emoticon This year I'm going to try to learn a different lifestyle, because I KNOW why I gained weight and I KNOW how to take it off. It's just a matter of making a commitment to myself and live true to it. So — wish me luck, or good will, or whatever it takes! Nina emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yes, Reva, I hear you. I am down one lb this week but reminded myself that if I could do that every week all year it would be wonderful. That is not at all realistic though. I am realizing my days have no particular structure to them and I am very lazy and self indulgent--love to sit around reading--and now that I don't have to go to the library it is worse. I need to discipline myself more.

I am trying very hard and it seems to be succeeding. What I am focusing on just now is not to feel so happy that I dropped a few pounds that I completely let up and reward myself with FOOD! (read sweets etc)
This has been my habit for just about forever. And it is a hard behaviour to modify.
Stick with it girl...you can do it!

I was beginning to think this site was stuck, it kept doing weird things, We will see if this message works...All of you that are having trouble with our overeating. Please know you have lots of company...but, that is exactly why we are all here. Struggling together to succeed. I'm here now because I was having the urge to eat popcorn and watch a movie. Why, I don't really know; because, I feel stuffed already. I think, that comes from all the water, I've been trying to drink. I've have my biking water bottle here beside me, and if I empty it 3 times I will have drank 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water. We will see how the weigh in goes in the am. Success for all. We can do it!!!! Hugs, Ethel

I'm determined to keep it going.

What I find that helps me is to be very serious, watching every mouthful for one week and ease up to a low calorie diet without the strain for 2 weeks following.
It seems to be working but I'll be sure in about 2 more months. Also I'm not striving for 50 poinds, only a few at a time.
It is tough!

Dear Reva, many thanks for your understanding replies. It DOES help to feel understood. I'm glad that you are doing well again--Maybe Iris and I and a few others should get in line for a kick! I know I could do better. I just read this week why a person wanting a snack will always pick fudge over broccoli--the brain likes instant gratification--I must relearn to remind myself how important it is to "go for the broccoli".

Oh, I need help. I am trying so hard today and I want to get in and eat myself full. So far I have done okay but it is only 2 pm. I think a big pot of air popped popcorn will help but I am trying to put it off as long as I can in order to stay on track. HELP!!!

Kathy, I shot up to 174 also after having been as low as 149. It is very disheartening, I know. But now I'm down to about 168 and it just happened. What you say about set points is true I believe because so much of my weight loss experience seems to back it up.
What I have discovered however is that my 'set point' or plateau is broken when I manage to stick to a regimen for at least two weeks. that's what has just happened these last few weeks. I had to go back to the arthritis Dr. and he had read the riot act to me last time I was there that the pain in my back wasn't going to improve if I kept adding weight to it.

So that sort of gave me a kick in the ass and I focused on what I had to do.

You know you can do it. If it helps just keep talking to me.
Hugs really i feel we are old friends,

I looked at the calendar I keep near the scale yesterday and discovered that my lowest wt. FOR ALL OF LAST YEAR, was 174.5 lbs. Terrible. No matter what I did, I didn't do it long enough or hard enough. Now I weigh about 181 which is even worse that 175. I don't know whether any of you remember a book titled "Set Point" which came out many years ago--like 15 or more years ago--and the authors made a very good case for saying many of us have Set Points--weights where our bodies are comfortable and which they will defend so that if we overeat or diet our body will try to maintain the set point we have achieved. Talk about depressing. I was working for Nutrisystem at the time and I remember a client bringing that book in and saying she now understood why she kept regaining her wt, no matter how many times she tried to lose it and stay down. Looks like 175 is one of my set points. I seem to remember it used to be 155 or maybe when I got there I would really hit the diet. If I could get to 150 I would be proud and happy even though I would like to go much lower. The shot I had in my knee yesterday seems to have helped greatly so maybe now I can do a little more walking--using my walker of course--since I so badly need exercise.

And away we go on the first Monday in 2011. I now weigh more than I ever have in my life. I have been pretty much out of control and hope to have some success this time. Tonight I will watch, "The Biggest Loser", "Where Are They Now", showing what has happened with the previous winners. This is the show that was supposed to be on last week but but was pushed aside to show the football game. I'm looking for inspiration.

Yep, Ctrl + will make the print larger and Ctrl- makes it smaller.

Morning all. I have just discovered how to magnify the print on here so it is really easy to read without glasses. We got a new computer this year with Windows 7 and I have not got very far in learning how to use it. I just realized that if I were writing this tomorrow I would say that we got a new computer last year! What a difference a day makes. I guess for Nora it is already next year. This is my last day as Chair of the Library committee and I will miss it very much while at the same time being happy not to have the daily responsibilty any more. I have plans for improving my life and my health which include time to exercise daily if possible, see about my knee and my teeth, and try for the millionth time to reduce the clutter factor in our home. Nothing new here except the teeth problem is recent and demanding--I have a lot of trouble chewing and had a toothache yesterday--will be glad when the 3 day holiday is over and life gets back to normal and you know you can reach a doctor or dentist if necessary. At the same time I know how much the 3 days means to people lucky enough to be in the working world and that includes many family members and I certainly wish them all a wonderful and relaxing time. Here's hoping for a better New Year for all of us on this site and our families and the whole world!

Hey are we all done with the challenge? The spreadsheet all done? I know I am full of questions.

Hey Audrey!!! Nice to see you here.

I have a hernia. The darn thing hurt today when I sang in church. I think I am going to have to cut the waist of an old pair of slacks. I can't stand anything tight around my waist. Getting old is so much fun.

That's it. Hugs Barbara

My surgery is now 6 days behind me and I feel great! I even drove to town yesterday (an hour away) for a different doctor appointment. I've not had to take pain medication even a single time. emoticon

Audrey, glad your surgery is done. Did you say now you need another surgery for the torn miniscus? Yikes! emoticon

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone!
I'm getting better every day, but it's still a pain in the ---, well, in the leg actually. I still have the torn meniscus, but I can't do anything about it until this leg is better.
Good Luck today, Nina! Hope this time is the charm!
Hi, REVA! It's been too long= glad you had a good time with friends. Belated happy birthday!

Gotta run now. My friends from Denmark are coming over for a visit. Gotta clean up.

Just popping in to say "Hi!" Audrey, surgery behind your knee sounds awful. I wish you the best. I'm glad it seems to be healing. I'll be having knee surgery tomorrow, but it is just a torn miniscus, not behind the knee. This is the third time. Dr. says if this doesn't work it will probably need knee replacement. My DH had both knees replaced and I don't relish the thought of that! emoticon

Glad to see you back on line, Audrey. Surgery behind the knee must present many problems involved with having to bend it all the time! Hope it soon heals completely.

Hi,All:
Yes, I'm still around - very round now!!
I keep gaining, my ankles are still swelling, but I'm not going to give up-yet!
My leg is healing slowly - it's starting to itch.
I miss you. Haven't been on for a long while.
Don't know any of the newbies.
How are you doing Lee, Kathy, Reva,Marlene, oops--

gotta go now. Have a training session this morning for the elections. I'm still the clerk in my precinct but I think this will be my last time as clerk - it's 20 yrs, I've had enough. Too many dumb people who think they know it all!!

see you soon.
Hugs,
Audrey

My purpose is my two adorable grand daughter that I watch during the week for my daughter.
If I didn't have to watch them, I most likely would spend my days in bed, feeling sorry for myself, but I get up every morning, get them ready for school, and then go about my own business until they come home from school.
They are what keeps me going for sure, and I wouldn't have it any other way emoticon

HEALTHY REFLECTIONS

Stand for something or fall for anything.- Anonymous

What do you stand for?

Have you ever thought about the power of having a purpose? Everyone needs something that gets them moving in the morning, keeps them going through the day, and makes them continue to work toward a goal. Take some time to think about the activities you are involved in and how they relate to your personal purpose. For the activities that don't serve your purpose, ask yourself why you continue with them. Perhaps you need to reevaluate your commitments and renew your conviction toward your purpose.

I don't usually have time to watch Rachel Ray but happened to see it this week and the girl that is a senior in highschool and weighs 284. The mother is skinny but the dad is heavy and takes the girl to eat pizza a lot. They are trying to change the whole family so the girl can lose 70 pounds by prom.

On Tues. night I watched "The Biggest Loser" and found it very sobering. I am trying to cut back while I get prepared for the zillionth time to follow an eating plan and lose, despite the many obstacles in my path. I cannot tolerate most fruits because of their acid content. That leaves blueberries and pears. Sometimes I sneak in a banana or part of one. I'm tired of buying pears and throwing them away because they never ripen so I get the multipacks of pears in lite syrup. Blueberries are now about done for the season so I will have to buy frozen. I usually put the pears, blueberries, some sliced bananas, walnuts, and low cal Cool Whip together. It is a tasty snack. I have a low acid appple in the frig--for two weeks now--I must cut it up and see if I can tolerate a little. If I can't I will suffer such bladder pain I will want to kill myself. And my joints are bad--I think I might try the water exercise here if I can get up my courage TO APPEAR IN A BATHING SUIT. What a nightmare that is for me--I am so ashamed of the way I look.
