Hi everybody! Thank you so much for all your good thoughts for my friend. They started slowly bringing his body temp up but said it will be a couple of days before they know anything. Sometimes the tech advances in medicine are just amazing. Let's just hope all the fancy gadgets produce some good results!!

Doing better with the food this week, only went over on points one day but going to try and compensate for that today. Not feeling like a stuffed potato for the moment. Here's hoping we can all see some progress before the end of the month!

Angry Technical Question

Can someone tell me where to find the PICTURES AND ALBUMS link? I want to upload pictures, but I can't find this link that's referred to under the FAQ's for doing just that. Ugh!

Happy Friday everyone!!

Another Weigh In Day! You can send me your weight today - I will try to update tonight and again tomorrow morning. Or you can wait until Sunday and send me your final weight for the month. It's up to you!

I have also decided to just keep this thread going for July - as Lisa suggested. Things are so quiet here at the moment that I think it is nicer to just continue with this one. I will just add the new percentage to goal list for July to the first page and edit the title.

So, let me know if you want your end of June weight to count as your July start weight, or send me a July start weight on July 1st. You can do it both ways. I am just counting on everyone who has signed up for June wanting to continue with us in July as well!

However: We do need coaches for July!! Please let me know if you can take a week!!

And finally I am going to post one question for the weekend today:

We are at the end of June - that means 2013 is halfway over. Many of us have started this journey at the beginning of the year. Looking back - how are you doing with your longterm goals? What were your ups and downs in the first half of the year?


I often struggle with my weight loss being so slow - but looking back, I realise that I am 13 pounds lighter today than I was in January and that is quite something. I am officially no longer overweight.

One of my biggest successes in the first half of the year was that after my long three week vacation I managed to get back on track, even though it was not immediately, it only took me about two weeks.

The only thing I truly struggled with was really my own self. For whatever reason I find it far too easy to just eat lots of junk when I am stressed out. The good thing though is that I am more and more realising that eating junk does not make me any happier, but instead makes me feel tired and it drains even more energy out of me.

And I hope you friend will have a full recovery!!

Thursday: 2-mile 30-minute Walk Away The Pounds DVD

I would like to continue for July. My goal for July will be 1000 minutes. Thanks.

Weight Watchers Online told me I was "losing weight too fast" and to "have a snack now and then." I went a bit overboard and gained 3 pounds back, darn it. Too many snacks, I know! Back on track this week though.

Thank you for hosting Mag!

I went back and looked up my weight from January. Not only have I NOT made progress, but I'm actually up 2 pounds!! It was SO disheartening to step on the scale this morning, after what I thought was a decent week, just to find I didn't lose so much as an ounce. I've officially hit another plateau and trying not to get upset about it. I've always been a notoriously slow loser, but this is ridiculous! I had wanted to be at my goal weight by May, but here I am AGAIN battling the same numbers AGAIN just when I thought I'd made progress AGAIN.

Okay, now that my rant is over, it's time to buckle down and figure out just where I keep going wrong (AND keep things in perspective! ) Any words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated!!

This is exactly what I mean about keeping things in perspective. They warmed him back up yesterday and his heart started beating on its own. Haven't received an update yet today, so for now, we're thinking no news is good news.

drat and double drat! i'm up this week. I did not meet my june goal. the past two months I start off with a loss and then get stuck. it seems like I lose 4 lbs one week then go 3 weeks without losing. which I get overall is still comparable to a pound a week, it's just frustrating. i'm waiting on some lab work to clue me in on if my meds are balanced. that plays into it big time. I really probably need to do another to check my steroid dose...but i'm too leary to lower it anymore and literally not be able to move all day. if i'm on too much though it will hinder losing that's for sure

so..i'm game for July and thank you Flossbona for continuing our thread!

Hi everyone, I've been reading the posts and many of us are in the same boat gaining and losing their same pounds. But we are all here and still trying, and that's the right direction. Had a good month so that makes me optimistic, but the hard part for me is realizing it's a balance and a lifestyle change. Even when I hit the magic number, if I ever do, that doesn't mean I am done so I can go back to, in my case, the fast food that got me here in the beginning. So hang in there everyone and I will try again in July. Buggie

I feel your pain!! I've been gaining and losing the same 2 pounds for the last 3 months. It's so frustrating!

I hope the labs come back with some positive info.

I can't believe how bad I have been lately. I haven't tracked in over a week

Eating double portions, had French fries and a Dairy Queen blizzard. I need to be inspired to get back on track before its too late! I know I'll regret it.

Have any of you been in this situation ?

Happy weekend friends! Missing my daily "chats" with you all, but life has been busy, as I'm sure you all are too.

Weigh-in was WORSE than I feared. Need to get some control back and KEEP that control over the July 4th holiday week! But what I know has been lacking most has been exercise.

Out of town again this weekend at swim meet...last night, today, and tomorrow. Packed what I could for healthy foods and drinks and I have my walking sneakers on, so if the rain holds off and I have time between events I will go walk!

I will try to chat here later! ...........P

Yes, I know this situation exactly! Have been there far too often. First of all, I think posting about it is the first step that can you help to get back on track!

Second: try to motivate yourself! For me it always helps looking at old pictures where I was heavier, have a look around my wardrobe whether there are clothes that don't fit anymore because they are too large. Try to visualize somehow the success you had already. I think you mentioned doing WW? Look at the line of your weights over time how it is going down. Take a bucket and fill it up with water according to the weight you already lost and carry that bucket around. When I realise that I already achieved something I usually get a kick and don't want to give that up anymore.

Also, try to focus your energy on tracking your food again. If you track you are much less likely to go off the program. If you find it difficult to make good choices, put your effort into the tracking, for me the good choices usually follow once I am back at tracking.

Hope this helps a little bit!! And if you need support come back here! That's what we are here for, everyone of us has times when things don't go as we would wish!!!

In other news, I ran the Chicago Women's Half Marathon on Sunday! It was brutal out there - so hot. I finished 12 minutes slower than my personal best, but I *finished,* which was plenty hard! When I got up at 4:45am, it was already 70 degrees out. At race start, with the sun up, it was at least 75, and the sun stayed strong for the whole race. Oof. But I did it!

Happy summer, everyone - I'll lurk along in July and rejoin soon!

So I am in here to quickly post a QOTD for today and will try to be back later with some replies!!

QOTD for Wednesday:
What is your favorite way to enjoy a nice summer day outside of any outdoor workouts?
It HAS been really quiet here! But at least it makes it a bit easier to keep up with for now!

If I can relax enough, I enjoy just hanging out at our pool at home with the kids...sipping lemonade, floating on a raft reading a trashy novel while the kids swim and splash...of course, we haven't done that for a few years!

Off to see the next swim event! She won her heat for her first event today...hopefully she is on a roll! ........P
