WI day - down 0.6 pounds for a total of 21.2 pounds loss.

I had a difficult 2 weeks, I did not track everyday, ate a lot more than I should and did not exercise much either. Since Sunday, everything seems to be falling into place.

Here's to much better weeks!

Well, my WI last night was what I expected -- huge loss because of being sick. Down 4.6 lbs for a total of 66.6 (easy to remember number, ).

I was down .1 yesterday. I think I've been eating too much fruit lately because I think I'm doing everything else right and not seeing the results at the scale that I'd like to see. So, this week, I've decided not to buy bananas. I'm really hoping this makes a difference.

Had a tough week eating wise/event wise. Had 3 work lunches, 1 work event/happy hour, 2 dinners with friends, and book club. I honestly didn't event track most of the week. I had expected gain this week, but I had food poisoning (or something) last night, and weighed in this morning down 1.4.

I'll take it, but hope I don't have to lose that way in the future.

Total lost since the end of September 12.2, average per week 1.5. I'd say I'm right on target. I am aiming to lose a total of 20 pounds by January 3, which means I'd need to lose an average of 1.1 pounds until then, which is possible, but could be difficult to do during the holidays.

On the flip side, I have NO plans this week, so I can stay OP and hopefully have a slightly higher than average loss next week to offset Thanksgiving...where I will likely eat my body weight in butter. (Kidding....mostly...)

Oh, and I dropped to 27 dailies today and was really surprised...I started at 29, so this is my second drop. I didn't expect it to happen so quickly.

That's awesome! You can do it. I track on my phone about half the time.

Our leader told us about going over someone's tracker when they had plateaued for a while. She said that she saw 7 bananas daily on the tracker and thought it must have been a mistake, that it should have been 1 daily and 7 for the week. Nope, the woman was eating 7 bananas every day because after all they are 0 points. Our leader had to tell her that they might be 0 points but they are not 0 calories and there is a point at which too much of 0 points will sabotage your weight loss. As for me, I cannot imagine eating 7 bananas a day.

Down 0.4 last night! I was very surprised, after a week without power due to Hurricane Sandy and then a week in WDW enjoying every morsel of the F&W Festival. I was able to get right back on track with the tracking when I got home, which I am sure helped, but still have not gotten back into the exercise habit. That is my goal for this week, and I think I am going to plot out my week and my workouts to keep myself accountable.

This made me laugh! I love bananas, but I rarely eat them...maybe that's a carry over from when they used to have points associated with them.

My WI was today. I made the mistake of weighing in last week when I *knew* I was going to be up, then I beat myself up over my 1.2 gain all day. I would rather know that I gained and own it, but not see the number. It's all a mind game for me. My WI today was much better! I lost 2.2 lbs (the 1.2 gain plus another pound) but that puts me out of reach for my Thanksgiving goal. I need to lose another 1.6 lbs in just 5 days and just don't lose all that fast. Plus, one of those days is the last Badger home football game which is one of my "splurge" days.

My biggest challenge this week is keeping Thanksgiving down to one day and not giving myself permission to go off the wagon the rest of the week because I know I'm eating whatever I want on Thanksgiving. I think that a Wednesday weigh in will help me .

I'm struggling to track again. I'm halfway successful so far. I always want comfort food when it is cooler out. I haven't used all my weekly points yet but I'm definitely working on it. Idk. Hopefully I can push through and get through the week without going nuts.

Haven't checked in for several days. I'm not a great forum poster!

Anyhoo!

I hit my first 5% today! I'm down just over 13 pounds. I started the last weekend in September. I'm a happy lady. I'm feeling better, more energetic. I still have a ways to go but I feel confident I can keep my momentum. I haven't decided on a final goal. I'm just going to take it in 5% increments for awhile.

I'm doing a 5k this Thursday too. I'm toying with doing a half marathon in April so I want to see how I do in smaller events first.
