.2 is still a loss, and during TOM that's a down right success!! Celebrate every smidge you loose, it all counts!!

Good morning everyone. I worked hard this week but the scale only have -.2 for me at today's WI. I still am trudging along with my new lifestyle. Trying to swap out healthier foods in my recipes and keep my activity higher. Can't wait for this snow and ice to melt to get outside some more. Have a good week everyone!

Down 2.6 this week. Almost half way down the 6 that I gained.

A .2 lost is a LOSS! And think of it this way -- if you'd had a nice visit to the restroom just before the meeting, your loss might have been closer to .8 -- it is amazing what a difference that can make. So hang in there because .2 this week could mean a bigger-than-expected loss next week.

So true.

Poor DH had to go to a meeting that's 1.5 hours before our usual meeting yesterday, and he was .2 UP. Well first he was wearing different shorts than he normally does, and they weigh more than his normal ones (when you are still sensitive to little ups and downs, IMO it's important to wear the same thing for as long as you can! and he's sensitive, so I don't know why he did that). And then it was 1.5 hours earlier than normal, in the morning...he probably would have had a loss if he'd weighed in at the normal time. And now he's off on a work trip to somewhere he has never been before and doesn't know what sort of food he'll be able to have!


As for me, I had another loss, and this stuff is getting REAL. I'm not sure the 19+ pounds to go in my ticker will be correct though...trying to look at myself honestly I think I might end up losing more than that. Trying to estimate how much extra weight is in each body part is amusing. "how many pounds is the stomach squish that's still here? how much is this extra thigh fat? will my rear get even flatter and if so how many ounces will that take off?" Strange little conversations I have in my head... The leaders at my center want an honest goal, one where we will be *comfortable* and not struggling to maintain for the rest of our lives (as my former leader says, after all, "we're here until we die!"), but they also want us to do the 6-weeks-to-hit-Lifetime as true maintenance, so we know how to maintain.

It's going to be an interesting period of time, that's for sure!

Holy cow! You are a powerhouse of amazing. Do you eat your AP/WPs?

I have decided that I'm going to move to the Saturday morning meeting. I *really* wanted to avoid doing it, but this town has very very few meetings and there are no times that really work for me.

Anyway, do any of you know how to change my meeting/weigh in day? I can't seem to find it on the site.
ETA: I figured this out...I hope Sat works for me but am not looking forward to this 'time' as a weigh in. After school gets out in 9 weeks, I'll probably go back to Tuesday evenings because the University gym won't have classes in the evenings...well, maybe they will, but I'll want my weekends with the kiddos.

I've found that working out is really helping my weight loss goals. I've also invested in true weight app. You have to weigh yourself everyday, but it smooths out the ups and downs.

Unfortunately, my "true weight" has been trending two pounds heavier than my actual weight.

Almost at the 10 pound mark, and it's been about 2 months. Well, a month and a half. I know I've dropped weight, but I don't feel any skinnier.

I did day 1 of the couch to 5K today. In 30 min I hit 2 miles between walking and jogging.
According to the activelink, I earned 0 points and am only at 47% of my goal for the day.

This week I went to a Zumba class and earned 3 points.
If this is accurate, that's fine, but if it is, the guide in the book they give us sure is off. WAY off.

I never used to eat my activity points, but I have drastically increased my exercise and started running, so I need to eat more. I usually use no more than half, and I never use my WPs. It is different for everyone.

All of a sudden, it will be like bam! You will feel skinnier.

Interesting. I fail to see how running/walking for 2 miles is 0. I use a heart rate monitor and go by my calorie burn.

Congrats.c

It's WI day! I gained 0.2 pounds. I'm up this week. Must be all that overeating over the weekend, we had a busy one and I am still struggling with controling my portions when out to restaurants.

Anybody have any tips?
