Just popping in to say I stayed the same. So my final weight is 181. Hope everyone else did better. Way to go Vetinaspin. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

That's great Vetinaspin! Hopefully you'll recover quickly.

Sorry I was AWOL last week. I just couldn't even get on the scale. I guess I should have though, because I did Saturday morning and I was down to 158, which was about a 3lb loss and a 1 lb net loss - I was back up to 161 the week before I think - so I was happy to reach a new low. Anyway, it doesn't look like I'm going to meet my T-Day challenge - more like half of it. Sorry. Hope everyone else does better!

I'm so excited - stepped on the scale this am and I'm 160! So I MADE THE GOAL EVEN WITHOUT THE SURGERY emoticon I've SOOO needed to do this. I've been in that adult onset ADD kinda cycle where I've not really accomplished lots or finished projects I've had on the go. This is just what I've needed to prove that I can take something all the way. Maybe those other things aren't as important as I've made them out to be??? (how profound). This SP is really making me go deep inside and question how I tick. Thanks for all of the support and humour and well wishes in hospital. I NEVER could have made goal without all of you (and likely the hospital food LOLOL). Now let's see if I can keep it going for the next month that I'm laid up....Later! emoticon

Hey Gang! I have to report in today because tomorrow at this time I'll be in hospital having my breast reduction. No gain, no loss. So I missed by 2 pounds. I'm going to ask how much my weight has been reduced by so that I can still try to lose 2 pounds beyond that - so I'm still in on the Challenge. It'll be hard trying to do it without exercising. Water water water and lots of fruits and veggies. See ya in a few days! emoticon

Today was my weigh in day. I've been missing in action for a week or so -- did something to the tendon in my elbow and couldn't move my whole arm for about a week, so I didn't get to the gym, which made me feel it was OK to not stay on program, yada, yada, yada.

The good news is that I didn't gain anything. The bad news is that I didn't loose -- still at 201. When, oh when, will I see the 100's???? Trying for this week!

Boy, you are close, Vetinaspin, aren't you? Congrats! I still have a little ways to go for the T-Day goal.

MG, we all need lifting up once in a while, glad I could help. Keeping up with Barney will help you burn those calories. Just wait til he gets older when he's taking you for walks instead of you taking him for walks, unless he won't get that big. I miss my cat, especially when I crochet something and find his hair in my yarn. He used to climb all over me and cuddle. But, when my son moves out in the next year or so, I'll be kid free and able to go places without worrying about pets or kids. Maybe I'll think about it years down the road.

It's just about that time for lunch. Leftover chicken, veggies, a spoonful of stuffing and applesauce. And water. Have a good one!

Mornining gang! Put me down for 1 pound. So close to goal I can almost....taste it! emoticon
MG - Your pup is very cute. I almost wondered if he was a Clumbar Spaniel - very close in colouring. At least he'll be house and obedience trained in the first year (vs. kids). The trade off is that you'll have the perpetual 'toddler' going around messing things up and leaving nose and paw marks on your doors and windows. Sigh. Take lots of 'baby' pictures. Later... emoticon

Thanks for the encouragement, Gretchen. Barney is a cocker spaniel. He's one of those two color buff and white ones. Once he settles down he'll be fine, he is just such a puppy! And I both work and work out at home so I can't completely ignore him, although I do crate him a lot so I can get things done. He's really testing us with different things - each day is a different theme - sometimes barking, sometimes it's going for the bath mat in the bathroom and hauling it down the hall, other days it's shoes. Other times he goes throughout the entire house, and attempts to do every single thing we've said "NO!" to so far, just double-checking I guess... So far no real damage but he requires close supervision!

Hi MG, Even though you haven't lost any this time, you've done really well in your overall loss. I haven't had much time to track my food intake, but am still measuring. I've been busy crocheting and making stuff for Christmas, so that keeps my hands busy where I can't pick something up and eat it. Sounds like you have your hands full with the new puppy. What kind is he? Buckle down now and you'll have a little room for that piece of pumpkin pie in a couple of weeks. Got to get back to work, MG, but you have a good day. You'll get there, just takes time. emoticon

I just saw the picture and he's so cute!!!!

Good for you Gretchen. No loss for me this week, I'm ashamed to say. I am blaming it on the new puppy, he hasn't been letting me get my full workout. He is cute though, and mostly sweet and only half full of trouble. (some days anyway). I am really going to have to buckle down now. Also I am going to start tracking my food intake more accurately again to see if maybe I am eating too much without realizing it.

I gained a lb. I wasn't that well behaved so I shouldn't be surprised. I didn't manage my food/drink intake very effectively on my business trip and now I'm paying for it. And I was slacking somewhat on the exercise, but am getting myself back in line on that. But now I'd better buckle down! Only 3 weeks and two days left in the challenge!

Anyone see Coach Nicole's new resistance band exercise video on Spark yet? I think it is the best one yet. I wish they had done it before my trip last week, it would have come in handy at the hotel.

I lost a pound this week. Been so busy that I havent checked emails for awhile. This is the first time the scale has even moved. It is definately great motivator, however my work out pants are going to Salvation Army because they dont fit anymore. I have to get a size smaller. What a price to pay huh? Hope everyone is doing well.

I already email Alamogal to let her know my results -- up a pound. I've been exercising well -- 30 minutes of cardio three times a week, plus almost an hour more of strength training. It was the eating that got me last week -- just was not on program. I'm trying to do better this week -- and I've increased the cardio up to nearly an hour (and I'm going to try to do four days a week instead of three). Hopefully that will make a difference. I REALLY want to get below 200 pounds! It's been over seven years since I've seen a number in the hundreds instead of two hundreds. Hopefully, this will be the week!

That's great Tamma and Donna and Vetinaspin!

Here's a little humor I received in an email newsletter this morning:

"EASY DIET"

"According to a recent article I just read on nutrition, they said eating right doesn't have to be complicated. Nutritionists say there is a simple way to tell if you're eating right. Colors. Fill your plates with bright colors. Greens, reds, yellows. In fact, I did that this morning. I had an entire bowl of M&M's. It was delicious! I never knew eating right could be so easy. I now have a whole new outlook on life."

It's just a joke, now don't everybody go changing your menus for the week! LOL!

Well gang - I am so happy! I didn't gain a pound and I didn't loose a pound. So that is a very good thing! I am in the zone - finally!

Good morning God, This is your day. I am your child, show me your way.

Good Morning All, I have a 1 lb loss to report. I am amazed. I weighed myself last Thursday and hadn't lost anything in two weeks now 5 days later I'm down 1 . . . doesn't make sense. . . but I won't argue with it.

Good Luck to everyone.

Good morning all! Never thought I'd feel guilty for recording a loss, but here goes... put me down for 2 lbs. I'm stunned. After my weekend with the in-laws I was prepared for none or even a gain. I'm with MG -- Becky, you should weigh in on Thursdays! Later... emoticon

Well I'm up .2 lbs this week. Sigh. I tried working out and weighing again but no change. Maybe I should have waited till the sweat dried. Oh well. I wasn't quite as disciplined this past week as I should have been. I promise to do better next week. Which is going to be tough because I have my dad's 85th birthday party Thursday, dinner out with some friends Friday and a family party Saturday. Still, if I stick to my guns and do all my exercise I should be alright.

Good morning everyone. You know? I am a complete befuddled mess. I am amazed (and a bit humbled) when you all send me the sweetest emails and say what a wonderful group leader I am and how I motivate you and such but I have completely lost control of my own personal weigh-in amounts. Totally. AND IM THE ONE KEEPING THE FRIGGIN CHART!!! If it wasnt for the fact that I put my starting weight on 5 Sept in my signature block, I wouldnt know where to even begin. This morning I was 173 and on 5 Sept I was 176.25 so Ive only lost 3.25 lbs. in a month and a half. So for a goal of 1.5 lbs. a week, Im 5.75 lbs behind the power curve. Rats. But Im 4 lbs down from last Tuesday...however that 177 weight was after a long camping weekend. As of today, Im on it. (I hope). I do manage to annotate my weight each morning on my desk calendar and Im seeing a trend of heavier weights early in the week and my lightest days are on Thursdays. Undoubtedly, weekend beer drinking is the culprit. Must have a discussion with self about this matter.

TAMMA, wow. Wow! You did all that? Im very proud of you that you didnt gain a ton of weight. You know I lived in Albuq. and the food out there aint skinny-fying by any means. Girl, I love me some chili reyenos!! I never did see the petroglyphs (or 4 Corners darn it!) and I always wanted to get out there. Yes, I think while hubby is dealing cards, you get to be the tour director. And it was Samuel Clemmons who said, Fish and relatives both start to stink after 3 days. That is the company rule we live by as well. Were going to Kansas on 9 Nov and will be home on the 12th. No point in wearing out a welcome. And the key to being invited back to my home is to get the hell out before I get sick of you. LOL We have a sign next to the front door of our RV that says This RV Drinks Six, Feeds Four, and Sleeps Two.

OK, I have succeeded in eating a healthy breakfast every day (except last Friday when I nearly got sick on two greasy tacos wont do that again) and Im keeping up with my exercise. My intermediate goal is to break the 170 mark by 1 Nov. My 43rd birthday is 14 Nov and I want to be back to my old Air Force maximum weight of 168 by then. I am very committed to this now that I put it like that. Charge!!

Weigh in Day!

I'm down 1/2 lb today.

I know where I went wrong this week. I didn't do my cardio for three days and ate out twice. While I did choose carefully, I honestly didn't know what the calories were going to be.

Guess I'm lucky I lost 1/2 lb.

Thanks Lori, it's a maple tree in my back yard that just started to turn color. And a few inches of snow on it from the freak storm we had last week.

I'll be back - haven't weighed in yet.

WoW MG. That is a really pretty pic. Is that flowers with snow? It could be a Christmas tree.

I gained a lb back this week. I didn't exercise like I should. I am planning on having a good week this week. Got over 60 min cardio today. :-)

Thanks MG. That's a good idea. I can drink tea and I don't mind artificial sweetener. That's exactly what I'll do.

Way to go vetinaspin. That's a lot of inches.

I only lost !/2 lb this week, but my clothes are fitting better so I decided it was time to measure up again. I've lost 4" combined off my waist, hips and thighs! Wow. SP is working AND I'm wearing my skinny jeans now! I'm pumped. I just have to remember this feeling on the 'down' days/weeks. Not a single nth off my bust. This is actually a good thing, because I'm scheduled for a breast reduction in mid-November (for medical reasons) and it just helps to reinforce that I'm doing the right thing. Dr. says I'll end up somewhere around a 'C' cup. I haven't been there since high school! I'm hoping to have reached my Thanksgiving Goal before surgery. I don't think it would be fair to count the sx as weight loss eh?? Later... emoticon

Lori - I've found that when I don't feel like drinking a lot of water I can get it in other ways - decaf coffee or decaf tea count as water and don't add any calories to speak of (if you drink them black with no sugar). I find that easier especially in the fall and winter when it's a bit chilly. Another thing to do is drink a lot of water during exercise - I get a good 3-4 cups in that way. (That I probably sweat right back out) :)

I've been slacking in the water department the past couple days. I'm doing good to get 2 glasses down.

Congrats on a size smaller Lavendergirl.

no change, but my clothes are fitting looser and I am a solid size smaller than I was six months ago. So I will take it. emoticon

I hope everyone is well and sticking to their goals. I am still working on that water thing. I have managed to get at least 8 glassed down the past couple of days. But I see that everyone else drinks so much more. Good for you.

I didn't have a great week food-wise last week. So, given my tiny weight loss the week before and the couple of bad days, I figured I would gain weight for sure this week. So, I was kind of blown away when I got on the scale and it registered a 1.5 pound loss for this week. I triple checked and also weighed at the gym (on the doctor's scale) to be sure. It seems legit! Whoohoo!

I also measured after a month and I lost an inch each in my bust, waist, and hips.

I'm feeling more motivated now, so I'm planning to stay on track this week.

- Jana

Good Morning fellow losers! I can't believe it but I lost 1/2 lb even with Thanksgiving! Heeheehee. I love SP. I'm not sure if this would actually be considered positive reinforcement for negative behaviour? Got away with it this time! Have a great day everybody. emoticon

Hope everyone is having a great week!!

I weighed in this morning (Tuesdays are my weigh in days) and I'm down 1.5 lbs.

I am so happy. This brings me to my first 10 lbs since I started dieting in August, 8 lbs since I started Spark People.

Feeling those clothes loosen up!!!

Lori - that's great! Gretch - good job!

I'm down 1.6 lbs this morning. Still don't know where I misplaced my measuring tape so I haven't measured. Hopefully by the time I find it I will have several missing inches to report!

Just figured out how to access the chart with help from DH. emoticon I'm such a non-techie person when it comes to computers --- thank God for you Becky! The chart is awesome, but WE are running out of time. And you've just GOT to hate those weeks where you're SOOO good and the scale shows NO CHANGE WHATSOEVER. Once again proving that God, indeed, has a sense of humour. Good luck over the weekend everybody and we'll face the day of truth on Tuesday - after my Canadian Thanksgiving. I'm just hoping to register no change or gain!! Ciao emoticon
