Great job Jaq!

I'm down 1/2 pound.

Brenda - bronchitis - yuck - sorry! You didn't need that when you're already dealing with so much. Glad you're feeling better! Nutrition will get better when you're back in your own kitchen...traveling & eating out make it so hard to keep calories (& sodium) low...my weight always spikes up when I'm away from home.

Maui & Hobbes - everything ok?

My bronchitis is showing on the scale.

4/3 - 227
4/10 - 225
4/17 - 224.6
4/24 - 228.8

Forgiveness week!

I haven't been healthy enough to work out for two weeks and no energy to cook so the combo of eating take out and not working out is adding up! My lungs are finally on their way to recovery and when I get home from my trip to Canada on Tuesday I'm looking forward to getting back on the trail.

The scale showed a pound down this week and that is on my new scale. I bought a new scale and it immediately made me 2-3 pounds heavier than the old scale. So I have used both until the new one gives me a number I like.
My calories are in my designated range and activity is adequate. I do my 8 minutes of Core each night and walk at least 3 miles a day besides my norma dauly stuff. Like everyone else I am busy with yard and house and looking forward to some just me days and some open space to roam.

I am still standing in last weeks tracks. No change on the scales but I know that is not the definative. So I took measurements and see almost an inch off chest, waist, and hips.. Yahoo.. So I am loosing the fluffy stuff and hopefully firming up the good heavy stuff.

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement left on my blog and so on- it means a lot to me.

Hobbes - thank you! - Loved that cartoon lol.

4/3 - 227
4/10 - 225
4/17 - 224.6

I'm a *smidge* down and I'll take it. Now I'm battling fever/bronchitis. I think it's just my body telling me to stop/slow down after all this loss. I fly up to see my MIL next week and be with her since the death of her partner. Tough times all around.

Overall not doing horrible-I have a slip here and there but ultimately my body is craving what it needs, protein, fruits and veggies and for that I'm grateful.

Hey Brenda & Hobbes so sorry you've had rough times lately emoticon Hoping it's getting better for you both...

The scale has been bouncing around this week for me...bounced up because I ate fast food but back down now because no time to eat the last few days...my CSA started back last week & was wonderful...but this week So busy I completely forgot to pick up my bag on Wednesday emoticon Disappointed I didn't get a call but it was my fault I didn't even realize I had forgotten until Thursday night...oh well sure hope the family at the drop off house are enjoying my veggies!

Got to run...still standing where I was last week...

Have a great weekend!

I'm weighing in early tonight 163 augh... up 3 whole lbs from last week


I've definitely fallen off the track. I'm not sure what happens sometimes for me it's often commitments that I make to someone else's agenda trumping my own. Inevitably it's kind of a self-sabotaging behavior that I need to rid myself of.

Old habits are just old habits, Forming New ones are invigorating and fun (I'm gonna try that again). Watch me!

Brenda There are great tools here to help set relistic goals. There are also some good people who have explored how to set realistic goals for them. Please use these tools, ask questions, and experiment. It is sad to loose people we love. I feel sure your loved ones who died would fell bad that their cancer caused you to Binge.
Please feel free to contact me to help you set some liveable goals. You can't give up everything and call that healthy, but there is a daily limit as to how much you can have.
Good luck and let us help

Having a rough time mentally - cancer is really eating at my life and taking the ones I love. It's making me trigger and eat comfort food (check out my blog). I need to focus and get rid of these little evils that are not good habits. Please check in with me ok? I need some help. Thanks friends.

I'm down 1 pound mostly due to being on my feet all day at work these days & no time to eat! Or Spark ):

Busy = Good news from me but miss my time on the deck!

I have NOT been tracking my intake as of late & have not dropped in my weight (at least I'm not gaining). This in itself must be progress I guess for me. I've started something new... It's very personal & about not letting others sabotage my walk time (my me time). It's hard to be a people pleaser and then demand things for yourself. Anyhow, I'm a work in progress. I need to begin tracking my food again (as it really is a successful tool for me personally). It's easy to make excuses or to let others dictate the road on your journey. I must stay on my own path and know myself. This is why I'm here. So happy to have other outdoor people to share some of the same visions of beauty and fulfillment.

MAUMI I think it has to just use a scale. Her is an example.
My friend and I went scub diving. We way within a few pounds of each other, she is an inch taller. She wears atleast 4 sizes bigger clothes. I wear 4 pounds to dive, she wears 26. Totally different body types. She is very boyant and I am like a rock.
Maintaining is about the same as loosing. A pound of fat takes up a lot more space on the body than muscle. Measurements help show sucess too.

Checking In and Still Standing

Weight the same
Walked every day a minimum of 45 minutes
Daily Core exercises
Calories maintained between 1100 and 1300

I loose weight slowly, possibly because I am very muscular and always weigh heavier than my fluffier friends. However the fat is slowly sliding off and my measurements improving. The mirror actually shows more difference than the scale.

I am standing up. I started tracking food the first of January. I am down but such a slow one to give up pounds. I see inches slipping way which is good. I hit a new low but it takes days to a week for it to settle as my new low. My body wants to hold the old low. But after some serious chats and denials, it behaves and the new low takes hold.

I have had only a few longer walks this week but lots of reno painting, sanding, sawing, etc. Up and down ladder. I do core exercises every night because it is actully the one exercise I hate to do..

Mary, I too am still standing...but just! Same as last week too! Ack!
I have had some off days this week and it shows...
Busy busy busy...makes it harder for me.
Hmmm...
And then there is all the Easter Brunch planning....I have had 2 chocolates already. And I missed some miles too...

Still the same is good...but to the right this next week!

Let's make this happen team!

How's everyone else doing???

Good morning team!

I'm still standing...exactly where I was last Friday...127...was 126 on Tuesday and hoped I'd move to the right this week...maybe next week! I've been doing really well with ST for 2 1/2 weeks now...that's a big deal for me I usually drop out after a week...also hitting cardio pretty hard so exercise is taking away from my Spark and Deck time right now...

Enjoy your Friday everyone!

Pura vida!

I will weigh on Friday. I was showing a new low but it takes days and weeks for my body to stay there. It is like a tease. I can't register it until it is consistently my new low. Hope you know what I mean.

Thank You MARY,
I will give this a Go if it is an ongoing challenge or you can let me know when it starts.
I am the slowest weight looser ever, but i do loose inches quicker. A pound of fat just takes up more room than muscle. But I have not gained any in 6 months, I just loose about 1/2 a pound a month..Yep slow! I generally stay fairly active and have decent muscle tone except mid section. That I am working on daily with extra exercise and moment to moment with food.
I like this outdoors group and followed it before a 4 year Spark break. Glad to see some same faces and the continued joy of the great outdoors.

Hi Missjaq!

Below are the rules posted by Kay before we started this in January.

Hope you join us!

Mary
________________________________________
__________________________
So I went back and copied the first post so we would have the rules up front!

Okay here it is! The Last Man Standing Thread!
Basic rules:
Post weight on this thread every Friday (first weigh in is Jan 2). Weight gain is a big No No! If your weight remains the same or you lose you're still in the competition. If you gain weight, you're given a one week forgiveness period to get back to the lower weight. Otherwise - you're out!

If you're one of our members who is already at their goal weight you may still partcipate by exercising at least 1 hour a day 5 days out of 7 and record your exercise. You also may not gain weight. If you do, you too are OUT! Okay, Okay, you get the same 1 week grace period.

Please use this thread to challenge each other, to encourage each other and to find inspiration from others in the team.

Good luck!

May we all come out winners!

Life is good!

Wood

'Still' standing.. Unfortunately my son & I both had been sick most of the Spring break. We're just beginning to feel somewhat like ourselves again. I'm not up or down just seem to be hovering over the same number. Tomorrow will try for a hike and so that may kick start the movement of the scale again.

Morning again...Wednesday! Almost Friday weigh in...

BTW- I reset my ticker to my start weight for January, before the first LMS.
So,each time we begin a new LMS...keep on going...so we can all see how far we have come this year!

Brenda- your start date was back around Thanksgiving...show that loss too on your ticker, OK?

Let's just keep on going team!
2015 ...what a year!

Hey Hobbes!

I weighed but didn't post.

3/20/15 weight 127.5

Major stuff going on here - good stuff but MAJOR - today I'm down to 126.5 not because I've been doing things right but because I haven't had time to eat!

No exercise this weekend - hope to move a little today!

Let's go team!

Well it looks like I'm not the only one who missed Friday's weigh in. I've gained two pounds since reverting back to old behaviors so today is the first day of Spring what an excellent day to start a new. (Come & Join me emoticon )

I have reset my ticker!

Up 1.5 from last week...was up 3 a few days ago...just had a string of bad attitude days and didn't exercise...weather is better and I have reality-checked myself...if I don't exercise I gain weight - period, full-stop, that's just the way it is! (I like to eat!!!) So I've now gone for a 5k morning jog 3 days in a row (plus some walking and a little kayaking and strength work) and half of the 3 is gone...

Brenda I wish I was only up .2! Let's both move it to the right this week!

Hope everyone else is doing great!

Jenna-Congratulations on the dress! Don't be discouraged about the 2 pounds. My thoughts with you on the death in the family.

Mary-glad you're still pushing past!

I'm up 0.2 pounds so I'm out of the LMS challenge but I think I'll still check in. Kind of ridiculous really, but I cheated the past 2 nights with my first fried food in months: fries and an egg roll. Bad choices. One night, ok. Two nights, not good. Even with exercise I didn't lose, but I barely gained so I'm going to try to be positive about that.

I had feared this weight would be my plateau weight and I think I need to work on being on point consistently to get past this. I can do it!

I think I'm out or this is a grace week, not sure :) I was up 2 lbs last week :( but I'm ok as I found a wedding dress....FINALLY so much stress over a dress lol Sorry for the late check in, had a death in the family and literally just got back in to town at 1am this morning.

Nice to see all the progress everyone is making :) I have the cupid shuffle song playing in my head everytime I come to this post :)

Brenda I think saving those Medifast meals for "emergencies" is a smart move!

You're right! I should be doing some cardio and yoga videos! I'm usually good about going to them when weather is bad but this time I've been very lazy. But it's a new month and time to turn things around!

Have a great Monday everyone!

Hobbes - keep on trekking! It's a new fresh week to start over with a plan.

Mary - Sorry the weather has been uncooperative-maybe time for some indoor exercises at home. Spark offers a lot of free videos.

I did a lot of prepping this weekend so I feel pretty prepared at least for the first part of the week. I feel a little guilty for not incorporating more of my medifast meals that I have leftover, but I know they will come in handy when I don't have the time to prep and still need to eat "on the go."

Hey Hobbes! I'm going to be going the wrong way this week if I don't find a way to exercise! Weather has not been cooperating here! Are you having the same problem?Steady cool rain again today...wish I could send this rain to our California girls!

Maui - I'll have to ask my mom about them using freshly ground flour...when I was growing up mom drove us 40 miles to visit her mom almost every Sunday (while my dad played golf) and Meme was always baking something in her wood fired oven...maybe because Sunday was baking day! And they had an old-fashioned washing machine on the back porch where you cranked a wringer as you pulled the laundry out to hang it on the clothesline...they lived in town but had a large garden, apple trees and chickens...I didn't know any great-grandparents or either of my grandfathers...both of my grandmothers were born in the 1890s..

So you use the fresh milled wheat for your starters? Can you keep feeding those starters perpetually or do you need to restart regularly?

Thanks for the link detailing the process! A little intimidating since I've done very little bread baking - but very exciting! Hubbie and son eat sandwiches almost every day - I would love to convert them to a healthier bread option! (store bought whole wheat right now)

Boy do I wish I could send you some of this rain! Emails from my new CSA say they are struggling to provide for their winter CSA subscribers...nothing left to sell in their stand or to restaurants, at farmer's markets, etc...hoping the rain is not destroying spring crops as well...we sure could use some more sunshine...I still have lettuces but they are not thriving - waterlogged and sunlight deprived...poor babies...but I shouldn't complain...better than a drought...

Hope you're all having a great Sunday!

Mary

Morning Team!

Hobbes- great to see you checked in. OK...it happens right So forgiveness week for you. And time to regroup. What are your plans this weekend? Ae you getting the rain and wind we are?

Mary- here is a lovely write of of how I make bread. The only difference is I use 60% hared red wheat and 40% rye.
But this is my process.
enjoy.

Mary-
Quite exciting about your new CSA. Shrimp and fresh ground flour...LOVE it!
Real whole grain!
Remember when Grandmother (Or great Grandmother) had Bread day, laundry day, cleaning day etc?
This was all because of when the local miller ground her flour. She always made bread that day or next, while the flour was fresh , before he fats oxidized causing rancidity! HAha...

So...a couple things to consider...

1- Is the flour organic fresh ground?
(If yes, you can make your own sourdough starter and never need commercial yeast, rather use true wild yeast which is what I do)

2. Are you wanting to use starter?

3. Remember that recipes are all based on store/shelf flour which has no fat. Fresh ground has fat. A little modifying is necessary in recipes where fat is added, add less. :)

4. You'll get to know different grains for different purposes. Bread needs highest protein grain like Red or white hard wheat. Biscuits , cookies, pancakes quick bread uses soft white wheat.
Wait till you smell the flour... :)

Maui did give you some very good advice!

Hope your appointment today goes great! You've already done your homework so I'm sure it will!

Maui - my old CSA farm is kind of in limbo so I've signed up for a new one this spring - this one offers local shrimp and daily ground whole flour as add-ons to veggie deliveries! I'm so excited! It won't start until April but if you have links to recipes I would love to start studying them!

I had a tiny move to the right this week...hope everyone else is moving in that direction too!

Happy Friday! The sun is shining here for the first time in more than a week! emoticon Feels sooooo good!

Pura vida!

Maui- thanks for all the awesome tips. This week my goal was to get my fats down and to not weigh myself everyday! It has worked well being conscious of what I'm eating that has good fat (eggs, avocado, olive oil) versus stuff that has bad fat (processed cheese) and both went well!

Week 1 - 240
Week 2 - 237.2
Week 3 - 234.6
Week 4 - 234.4
Week 5 (new weigh in date on Mondays) - 232.6
Week 6 - 231
Week 7 - 229.4
Week 8 - 231
Week 9 - 226.4

Technically I'm down 3 pounds from prior to my gain last week (original weight) which is awesome. However, I did weigh myself last Friday (versus the Monday weigh ins I had switched to when I was on medifast to keep it all straight) and I'm only down 1.5 pounds from last Friday's weight. It's all over the place haha.

My goal this week was to not get on the scale throughout the week and it was so worthwhile to not play the mind game and just to try to make the best choices I could, knowing I had to get on the scale on Friday. I'm switching my weigh in morning back to Fridays for a few reasons: I'm not on medifast anymore so a Monday weigh in doesn't make sense, and weighing in after the weekend SUCKS. :)

I seem to be averaging 1.5 pounds each week and I'm working to embrace that because slow and steady wins the race.

Today I meet for a 2 hour nutritional counseling appointment, and I'll be taking with me 2 weeks of nutrition tracking from SP. I didn't use to track on the weekends but it's vital for me to do and this time around I have been. It helps me stay accountable during those times when I want to fall off the wagon.

Plus, for the past 2 weeks I've been able to get in my 3rd and sometimes 4th day of exercise and it's going great! Setting up my basement gym was the best thing I could do. I watch some HBO Go on my laptop, while doing 25 minutes on the elliptical and either some light pilates or weight lifting. I feel good!

I'm only .4 pounds away from 30 pounds down. Holy cow.

Brenda-
Sounds like you are doing quite well with the carbs! Well done! Whole grain is tricky too I have found. So...if you can find bread truly whole grain ( almost all are not...they cannot be...when you grind wheat or any grain flour it has healthy fat and enzymes withing the grain. There are all removed to put flour in a bag on the shelf. It goes rancid with 24-48 hours of grinding) So, my bread...real bread...has 100 % real whole grain. In your area, I wonder if this kind of flour is available? Or bread made with it?? Just wondering. It's much more satisfying...go figure.

Cheese- Its tricky...cause the calories and fat add up real fast. But...that's not teh only consideration.
DAiry products from big ag cows are filled with antibiotics, hormones, grain fed and thus have very different nutritive value. Grass fed, organic cows' milk has higher Vit D (something you are looking for) and the correct balance of Omega 6-3. You are looking for high Omega 3 foods. Grain fed cattle have high omega 6...bad fat...
Grass fed cattle have high omega 3...good fat.
So...one way to manage your cheese is to commit to organic grass fed dairy. Its more expensive, but MUCH better for you.
A lot of modern dairy is responsible for inflammation Americans are experiencing. (There are several sources of inflammation, poor quality dairy is one)

Sorry for the long story...but it's important...

A way to manage dairy, is to not withold, but rather choose quality therefore it becomes self limiting. Choose dairy carefully and have less, but great dairy. It's so yummy you can taste it.
The facts are in. There are many studies on dairy. Its one of eh most regulated organic foods in our nation.
So...try for a month...only allowing organic, grass fed, whole milk dairy.
In Europe they feed the children whole milk dairy and the children who eat non fat are the ones with weight gain and poor brain development...

The kids eating the whole milk are thinner. They get the Good fat. The non fat or low fat has more milk sugars. All nutrients need good fat to piggy back on to get micro nutrients in and sustain good brain health.

Eating higher quality dairy reduces inflammation, feeds good fat to your brain, creates a feeling of satiation. when inflammation is down, our body metabolizes better.

Lesson..
to begin dealing with cheese...choose only very high quality. Eliminate unhealthy cheese.
I hope this helps. :)

The good things I'm doing are avoiding carbs - still almost no sugar other than fruit, and very little bread. I had "real" bread for the first time last week after not eating it for months. It was good, but I don't crave it. Thankfully we have some excellent whole grain bread bakers at our local farmers market, so when I did nosh this weekend, beyond the portugeuse roll, I had a hearty, seedy, whole grain rustic wheat bread.

Downfall is cheese. I can see it ALL OVER my nutrition tracker. I know that's my vice. I eat it every day in almost every meal. Any good substitutes that will satisfy my cravings?

Brenda- OK...of course we are all so different so...it depends.

Cravings- I can squelch cravings with healthy fat. So...avocado, Vit D, Olive oil...coconut oil, organic pastured eggs,
If I consume simple carbs at all, I get hungry. I avoid them, period. I do eat bread and pasta but only my homemade versions of honest whole grain.

Keep protein up and early in the day. This too helps with cravings.

And of course water...must keep water intake up. I try and make sure the water goes in, in-between meals, not right with or after a meal. (This slows digestion) So just drink enough water with meals to 'wash the food down'.

Bottom line, I think going lower on carbs and subbing healthy fats is a good choice. :) Watch the calories though. Bad fats are just bad fats. Your body takes mutiple 'hits' from bad fats...just sayin.

Keep good fats in your repertoire.

Hobbes - I hope you can find your inspiration soon!

Today it was over 32 degrees and it felt AMAZING-took the dogs for a long walk and I felt so alive.

This weekend I've been keeping below in my carbs, but over in my calories or fat as I transition out of medifast-been craving fatty comfort foods! I don't want to get into this habit, but is it horrible? I would love some feedback. Thanks friends.

Hello Wonderful Outdoor Deck Friends, I haven't gone up or down in my weight. I've been walking with a co-worker in the mornings. I haven't jogged or gone on any runs this week. I'm kinda in one of my slumps (this happens when I'm putting too much focus on everyone else's needs). It seems to be a vicious cycle I have a difficult time not returning to. I should know better! If I give to myself I have more energy and am healthier physically, mentally spiritually... Sorry I haven't been very supportive lately to the team. I'll try and pick myself up and get moving!

I'm down 1.5 from last Friday! Still 1/2 over Lms starting weight & 5.5 over goal but hopefully I have the ball rolling now!

Brenda you're down 9 pounds in 7 weeks! Considering the uncooperative weather & the fact that you're transitioning away from medi food I'd say that's very impressive! Hope you get the exercise in this weekend!

Happy Friday everyone!

Well, it's my forgiveness week. Womp womp. Valentine's day donuts and chocolates, as well as pasta, did me in! In good news, I lost 2 inches around my waist in spite of the gain, so I'll take that!

I typically hike on the weekends but with temps in the negatives and snow on its way I'm doubtful that will happen. However I did spend my lunch break yesterday sweeping up the basement and wiped down our exercise equipment so my goal is to get on the elliptical once in the next 2 days and lift weights once in the next 2 days.

This weather is freezing my spirit and makes me want to carb load! Tonight I'm going to my aquatics class. I still have yet to set up my basement to workout-I NEED to work on that this week. I ate a whole sub yesterday-bad idea. I should have only eaten half-need to work on portions again as I re-introduce carbs back into my diet. Learn as I go!

Sorry you joined us "sitters" Tar...but keep on pushing... emoticon

Finally started exercising again after letting a bout of coughing and sniffles sideline me for a week or more...

Today 1 mile doggie walk...2 mile run...30 minute barre workout

I'm still over where I was when we started LMS but I'm down a little from last week...if I can just move a wee bit to the right every week I will be happy!

Have a great rest of the day! Tomorrow's high will be 20 degrees below today's...in the 50s today...may not get much above freezing tomorrow...I know this sounds balmy to many of you!...but down here it throws us for a loop when it drops below freezing - good for business if you're a plumber! Stay warm everyone!

Pura vida!
Mary

emoticon You go girls!! You are on it- WOO HOO!!!
I don't see my check in post from Friday nite! Hmmmmmm? Well.... the bad news is the scale didn't even move! And the good news is that it stayed the same. Im sure today would be a really bad day to check my weight tho.... we've been "Valentining it" on into today!

Had fun with our son and his girlfriend, we hosted a big BBQ dinner last nite- had bought yummy things for appetizers from the Farmers Market, Hummus in 4 different flavors, Pita chips to go with it, Fresh strawberries, a steehead salmon, chicken wings, and BBQ Pork ribs... made some quinoa mushroom polenta, fresh steamed broccoli... and a wonderful bottle of wine. Needless to say, DH and are are going on a sunshiney hike right now!! emoticon Had a wonderful whole week off and think I will actually look forward to doing hair again tomorrow in the busy salon. ***SNOW*** emoticon

Home is where the heart is.

My check in for this week :) So excited....I'm officially under 200lbs :) I weighed in at 199 today. So excited :) Felt so good to go check in also as it's a big part of my motivation and staying on track is the support I get at the docs.

I hope everyone has a great week :)

Valentine's day completely threw me off track, but I kind of expected/planned for that to happen. I was hoping I would maintain and not gain, but thus, 1.6 pounds up so it's my forgiveness week based on my Monday morning weigh in.

My goal this week is to begin finding a 3rd day to exercise. With the 0, subzero temps, I also didn't get in my weekly hike last week which I know didn't help. Here's hoping for a warmer week ahead. 1 again today :\
