Well I was advised to update my blog, on how my eating clean has progressed for me.
First of all I gained 10 Lbs.and I lost 6 lbs as 7/26/08 , (I now weigh 112)I didn't lose much weight since I started, but I did lose inches all over and I am very happy about this. I want to lose inches more and get toned. I could remain this weight, I'd be content, provided my inches take a walk off of me?

    Regarding your 09/17/08 comment, don't beat up on yourself for cheating. Many members plan "cheats." I know it's harder for you because of your thyroid, but you'll still take off the weight; it may take a little longer, but that's okay. There are very few people that eat clean all of the time. If you deprive yourself of indulgences once in a while, you're more likely to give up. Remember this is a lifestyle journey and not a diet! So, just watch your calorie intake this next couple of weeks and add a few more aerobic/cardio exercises to burn off that pound you put on.

    I'm way behind on my reading and this is the first time I've had a chance to come to your page and read the comments that have been added since my last visit.

    I was reading your comment on 09/05/08 of this blog and I want to make sure you understand that there is no set rule how often you weigh yourself. While you're still losing weight, SP has recommended that you don't weight yourself every day; but, that's because your weight can fluctuate as much as five pounds (seems a lot to me, but that's what the article said) and they don't want you to get discouraged. There's also an SP article about weighing yourself every day once you're in the maintaining mode. Some members have chosen to do their weigh-ins bi-weekly and others even do it once a month. It's like picking your weigh-in day. Some do their weigh-ins on Monday, so that they hold themselves accountable over the weekend, while others chose to do it later on in the week. Like I, many weigh themselves every day; however, they only report their loss/gain on their weigh-in day. Picking the weigh-in day and how often you weigh in should be based on what works best for you. If you need accountability, do it more often; if not, do it only once or twice a month.

    I wish I would get that surge when I put on headphones and play my i-pod; I'm afraid that doesn't work as well for me. I'm still working on getting into a steady routine. (Right now, one of my forms of exercise is dancing with my fifteen month old granddaughter. ) Every time I've just about got a routine set, my schedule gets turned upside down. Oh well, that's life; so, I just have to do the best I can.

    Well I'm still hanging on to my last pound, how frustrating this is getting & I exercise regularly. I eat clean, this has become my way of life now! I must say though, I did cave a couple of times. Hey I'm human! Recently my hubby & I had gotten together with friends & needless to say, I caved. Cherry cheesecake is a weakness of mine & my friend, Carlene makes a mean one. Well of course being an angel emoticon for the longest time, I had to have a piece, but I had 2 pieces, whose counting? I gained a pound I freaked out. I can't do this again, cause I don't know when to quit! That's bad. Well I lost the pound again I now I'm holding on to this last pound like a huge wart!
    I am at a stand still, so I'm changing my workouts. I do have a under active thyroid & anyone who has this problem knows what it's like to lose weight.
    I consider myself a trooper, because I don't give up on things, never did & never will & that goes for people also.

    Hi ,
    It always seems to slip my mind to check or to update my blog.
    I'm terrible. I'm still slow at losing these last few pounds that are still attached to my body. I wish that they take a hike?
    I never liked weighing myself every week, I rather weigh myself every other week, that way I won't be disappointed often .
    I do have a medical problem, which I really don't care telling people about, but your all like my family so it's cool!
    I have a under active thyroid & it makes your weight loss a problem. Ever since I've been diagnosed with this, it's been a slow , never ending task for me. That's why I get uptight when I gain even 1 pound. Oh, I'll lose it, when, well that's another story?

    I'll tell you the only thing that gets me up & active everyday is, as soon as I put my headphones on & start playing my i-pod, I get a surge through out my body & I get a boost & there I go. I get instant energy. What ever works! Right!

    Weight is only one way of checking how we're doing; losing inches is another. I think I'd prefer the loss of inches and having a toned body, especially at how close you are to your weight goal, any day over the weight loss. I've seen some people who've lost weight, and yet their bodies don't look very good because they've not done any exercise to tone up their bodies. (Matter of fact, I'm working very hard on toning my upper arms 'cuz I absolutely don't like the flab swinging when I move my arms---and, I know my arms aren't bad compared to some I've seen.)

    More than likely, you'll lose that four pounds if you continue to eat healthy, do your exercise, drink plenty of water, and gets the recommended hours of sleep.
