Just keep hanging in there!!!!! Last week I stepped away from the scale - not very easy to do! I tracked every bite (stayed on plan) and exercised and did not see the results I really wanted to. I do think it was better that I didnt hop on the scale every morning.

On the other hand DH is just cruising along. He joined in May and just blew by me on the scale. What has taken me TWO YEARS has taken him months (yes those are my Jekyll and Hyde feelings!) He says its just "effortless"........ I am so happy and proud of him!

Oh well here goes another week of fighting for every ounce. I am happy to say I lost .4!!!!

Have a wonderful week everybody.

I guess I'm still hung up on how easy it came off 7 years ago. The stress of planning a wedding helped so much lol! I think I need to ease up on the carbs, going to try mixing things up a but.

Discovered a salad I LOVE at Fresh and Easy- a spinach salad that has a total of 6 points for the entire bag. So a good side for dinner (4 of us) or I use it for dinner when dh is out of town, and add a little chicken.

Am driving for my son's family weekend at school next weekend. Will bring a little cooler so I can have fruits and veggies and other snacks on the way down, and plan to be very careful at the university meals.

Wishing everyone a good week!

Welcome back Juila! I'm glad that you went to your WI anyway on Saturday and posted a loss . The key to being in control at your son's college is to be prepared and it looks like you're doing a great job. Maybe you can also save your weekly points for the weekend and then stick to your daily points the rest of the week.

Turbo Fire is a 90 day workout program that focuses on the HIT method (high intensity training), where you work out as hard as you can in 1 minute increments in a 20-25 minute block of time, that alows your body to burn calories all day. (the after burn)
I'm glad it's working out for you! I'm not a big fan of meal replacement shakes (including the WW smoothies), but I do make my own breakfast smoothie every once in a while with unsweetened almond milk, banana, frozen berries, Greek yogurt and protein powder to keep me full.

It's a sad fact that men lose weight easier than women. It's NOT fair . One thing to consider, a man "gains" in a certain *ahem* area for every 30-50 pounds he loses so it's really a win-win situation for both of you .

I don't know how old you are, but I have read that it's easier to lose weight when you are younger. Hang in there! You'll do it again .

WI day on Sat-- I'm up .6. I was down 3.0 the week prior. Lately it's been either a bigger loss and I'm up a little the week after. I wish it was more consistent-- I would take a pound loss each week and no gains over the big loss, than up a little. I guess it all evens out though. It's just weird: to lose the 3- I didn't work at it that hard either. I would say I did more activity the week I gained the .6!
I just keep swimming along. As long as it ultimately comes off, I'll be happy

Down 1.6 for a loss of 6.1 total. First time I broke 190 in a few years.

We are almost in the same boat, I just broke 190 this morning for the first time in awhile too! Congrats!

Mine came off easy the first time too...I'm only two weeks in, so it's not slow yet, but it will be soon!

-.4 for the week. Not a huge loss--but the week before was a -4 pounder!!!
I guess every week can't be that great I'll settle for any loss.

Considering I ate a bit over 2 days last week and was away with DH and friends for a long weekend trip, I'm happy. While traveling, I ate well--but smartly--and even had a shared dessert on Saturday and Sunday evening with DH. So it's not like I starved and showed such a small loss. I was anticipating a gain, frankly. Now I have to knuckle down and get serious for my WDW trip and cruise. Two weeks of travel.....hopefully the extra exercise will help me with any extra eaten points.

10k -- Amazing! Would love to hear about the journey when you have a chance.

Congrats on being only two pounds from goal.
