I think Halloween to New Years are the toughest for me. I sneak candy out of the kid's trick-or-treat stash and find all sorts of reasons to eat the tempting holiday goodies.

Last week of swim season just wrapping up.... Granite State Championships is this weekend and then we are officially done (although she will still be swimming some to stay in shape for college)! I can hardly believe it.

I'm in for August, but won't be around as much to chat...next week we pack for vacation and start packing DD for college...then we are away for a week, then 6 days home before we take DD to college! Then school starts up for DS and I got back to work as a sub and possibly increase my hours with WW. where did the summer go??


Hope you all have been well. Errand to run now, so I'll BBL. TTYL.............P
Glad the party went well. Enjoy these last few weeks with DD.

Good question.
The stress season is the worst.
I don't think I have a specific time that is worse than others. I am an equal opportunity emotional eater.

******
Started August two pounds less than July!!
So excited. I still don't feel back on track but I feel like I am moving in the right direction.

The sign goes in the front yard tomorrow. Excited and terrified at the same time.

Hope everyone is having a great night.

BTW--the trip was awesome. The sun was shining. It was warm and steamy. Both DS and I commented all weekend that it was exactly what we needed. For those of you that have been around for a while I saw Jennifer (can't remember her screen name) who used to participate in the BL threads. We had drinks at TOTW lounge. I left here and it was raining. Came home and it was raining. At least I had a few days of summer time. It was really wonderful to spend some time with DS.

If you can't find glass containers, try a craft store like Michaels or Joann Fabrics. They may even have marbles lol.
. Thanks Jill
So far I found one mason jar at home that some BBQ sauce came in.

Think that's everyone in now
Thanks for adding me. My worst times of the year are either Cmas or Summer, both periods I just feel like losing control I think because the normal routine is not there as much. I'm easing back into this but will try to work up to coaching at some point.

Of course, today I would say that TODAY is particularly hard for me. Had to put our dog to sleep today, so all I want to do is eat. Haven't caved yet and am within my calories for the day, so so far so good.
So sorry for your loss:

Thanks for the welcome! Good luck with the house and WTG on a 2 lb loss

Off to PM my initial WI number and goal

I became a coach for the discounts....most of my friends hate me talking about it so I keep it off my facebook page and only talk about it every once in awhile. I don't have anyone under me since I don't promote it much. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the shakeology so any discount on that is awesome HAHA!!! I loved P90X and really liked Les Mills Combat and am loving T-25. Go for it....it is a great company and I know a few people who have quite the corporate world cause they are doing so great!!!

I've had success in the past with this group and I am freshly motivated after watching Extreme Weight Loss last night. Loved the idea they did with the marbles transferred from one jar to another as you lose each pound. I'm just not sure where to purchase marbles and single mason jars

Looking forward to success for all of us

You can use the flat marbles from the floral department at Walmart or Michael's and 2 vases.



Here you can pay yourself a dollar for every workout. When you get to $100, spurge on something fun.

I think March - May is the worst for me with June and July right behind. Between working and both boys being in baseball it seems we are at a baseball field every day. Older DS plays high school baseball and travel baseball and younger DS plays little league. It makes eating at a normal time chalenging.

Happy Friday! July was great, and now on to August for a full month and hopefully a few more pounds I'm stuck on my phone for now as my laptop has a virus..... So irritating! People drive me mad sometimes.... I'm very careful online, but it got me anyway. Uuuugh. Hoping google and I can fix it, but I won't have time until Sunday.

On a happier note, it's beautiful here and I think we'll get out hiking this weekend, maybe a longer run if i get ambitious For the QOTD - Nov and Dec for me too, definitely. Thick sweaters and winter clothes hide body changes and cold weather makes warm, rich food so cozy! Christmas time also comes with sweets that are only around for a short time, and anything that seems limited is always more tempting to me

Ugh, it is so hot here again and regained my two mystery pounds. A bit frustrated, but I can feel how my body is storing the water... Did walk into town after work for a light frappuccino at Starbucks (was within my points) which gave me some light exercise (about 30 minutes additional walking) and let me enjoy the air conditioning at Starbucks!

QOTD:
There are a number of difficult months, but I think I would say late December through February are the worst for me. The last few years I was really able to not eat too much during the pre-Christmas season and just plan some treats of stuff that I really love for the Christmas days. But then after Christmas the boring part of winter starts. It is dark and cold which makes exercise difficult and when it is cold I seem to be constantly hungry. I am not a fan of winter vegetables and by January I can't see oranges, bananas and apples anymore.
