Good Saturday morning everyone.

It is supposed to be another hot and humid day here in jersey. Some reports having the heat break on Sunday and some report it will break later on next week. We really can't get anything done around here with this heat since most of what we need to do is outside.

Question of the Day

If you had 3 wishes what would they be? (And as Genie says in Aladdin "No Wishing for more wishes)


Have a happy and healthy day

Losing the extra is like a fantasy, that i just recently came up with to try to become a better runner, but I like to dream big.

My official goal for July is 5 pounds. I have a vacation to Hershey of all places right in the middle of the month so I'm really going to try to be as "perfect" as possible for the other 26 days of the month! So far I'm about 2 for 2 (days).

I recently started tracking my calories again and this time I'm also incorporating something I read in a book called "the runners diet." It says to aim for 50% of calories from carbs, 25% protein, 25% fat. I started last Wednesday and it really seems like it will work. I have lost about 1.5 pounds and the best part is that I haven't felt hungry or the low blood sugar swings i used to feel when dieting even though I'm staying within my amount of calories. It's really tedious to enter everything into my app but thankfully it calculates those three % for me so I can play with the components of my meals and adjust it until I find the right balance. I was way over estimating the calories that I ate from fat and underestimating carbs. I think tracking fat has been the key for me because I need to eat carbs, but they have to be carbs that can't add too much fat so I'm mostly eating high water content fruits and veggies or whole grain carbs to meet my goals, along with lean proteins. So I guess that's my "real" goal for the month- tracking my food. Along with sticking to my running plan and adding back in my pt and core exercises.

Thanks for letting me join! I'm hoping to check in each day and let y'all know if I stayed within my calorie goals. Hope that's ok!
Hi Figment! Welcome to the thread! If you want me to track your percentage towards goal, please send me your starting weight by PM!

QOTD Saturday......think I'll be really cheesy and say Health, Wealth and Happiness. The wealth ain't ever gonna happen, but as Meat Loaf once said....'Two out of 3 ain't bad'!!

Ran my first properly timed 5K this morning, it was really hard due to the temp here being 23 today (73 to you guys) which is really hot for here!!! Not helped by the fact that the majority of the course was in full sun...remembered to put suncream on though!!

My results have come in and my official time was 00:40:14.....284th in a field of 296!!! Definitely room for improvement!

Helen, those pictures are amazing!!!! You can be so proud of yourself! Thanks for posting them, you truly are a great inspiration!!

Do you have a goal weight in mind? How far away are you from that?

I don't have a goal weight in mind....I am currently a UK dress size 18, and would like to be a comfortable 14......I've no idea how that will equate to weight though. I was a size 24/26 in the grey top!!!

Funny story about the orange dress I am wearing in todays picture. I bought it in June 2001 at The World Wide Sportsman, Islamorada in the Florida Keys......until today I have never been able to get into it.....it was my nemesis, hiding in the storage box under my bed. Pulled it out this morning just out of curiousity...and I could get it on. A little tight in places, but I've worn it all day!!!! I can't actually tell what dress size it is as the label just says XL.

Helen--Looking good! Congratulations to you!

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

I am hoping I hit rock bottom yesterday with an upward trend from here.

I fell while walking in the park (getting in my mile for the day) and landed on both of my knees. The right one isn't too bad--just a big bruise. The left one swelled up horribly. Looked like I had a golf ball on my knee cap for a while. I went and had xrays just to make sure nothing was broken. (And it's not). It's wrapped and I am trying to baby it, though I did walk a very slow mile today.

I have had multiple chip binges over the last couple of days. And it is so awful. I am really frustrated and embarassed and just don't understand why I keep self sabotaging.

I even went online today and researched WW and c-d. And what I learned is that gaining weight back after going g-f is not that uncommon. G-f products tend to be very high in calories. (for example a bud light 110, g-f beer ~170). So when I first went g-f and was sick I could get away with the extra calories that are in everything. And I started making bad choices again--and using the excuse--I can't have xxxx so I am going to have this instead. And now I am caring 20+ extra pounds and in the unhealthy bmi range. And my bp was through the roof yesterday--but I am sure part of that was the anxiety over the injury.

The thing is, I know how hard it is to lose the stinking weight. And part of me wants to say forget it, this is what I am going to weigh. But I know that's not true. I have put on weight almost every month this year and I have to do something to rein it in or I am in big trouble.

So still not sure if I will join WW, do MFP or just try portion control. But I don't think portion control is going to work this time. To top it off, I no longer am having a tom which I am sure is making things even more difficult. My md thought it would even out after the marathon, but it looks like I have hit that new life milestone as well.

Anyhow, I am sure it is doable if I just stop eating crap. Time to put my big girl panties on and stop feeling sorry for myself.

I think I am a little scared I won't be able to lose the weight this time. And I really liked being skinny.

So please bare with me while I try to get this straightened out in my head.

And please send good thoughts for my knee. I really need to be able to exercise!

Thanks for giving me a place where I can talk about this stuff.

Sending hugs and good wishes for a speedy recover of the knee Rose.

I know how hard it is to lose weight, but you have to get your head in the right place, for the right reason. You will do it when you are truly ready.

My tom is getting better thankfully, think it's a combination of the weight loss and age!!! Down from 7 days to only 4....I'm happy with that. Never been this good since my early teens!!!

Keep up the regular exercise and the rest will hopefully follow naturally.

I'm sorry your are having a tough time right now. I hope you find some peace with all that is going on. Sorry I am no help with gf, but I do love ww. It's so easy and although I have fallen off that wagon more than once in the last year, I am back on track and feel so much better. I know you walked today (saw it on the exercise thread) and I hope your knee is doing even better tonight. Here you go


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good evening friends It's pretty quiet around here. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I've had a pretty good day today. DSs were with the inlaws, so I got a lot done around the house and got to watch 2 movies! Whoop! I finally saw Oz the Great & Powerful. I really liked it. DS10 is at the movies now with a friend watching Despicable Me 2. Tomorrow through Thursday DSs are going to a camp about 40 minutes away for Markmanship Camp. It's from 9 am until noon, so I need to find some stuff to do in the area instead of driving back and forth. I asked DH if he'd like to walk 4 miles with me on Tuesday and Thursday and I believe he said, "not really."

I'm going to head off and get DS7 a quick snack before an early bedtime tonight. I'll check in tomorrow.

Jill

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was sailing with my parents and my 3 DDs this weekend and it was fabulous! Unfortunately, it was not fabulous for my diet We are going on a huge family trip to Myrtle Beach in 6 weeks and I have decided that I need to recommit to myself to lose 10 pounds by then.




What do you do to motivate yourself to exercise each week?

The exercise actually comes pretty easily to me. I have been working out 6 days a week, every week, since January 1st. I think what's most motivating to me at this point is that I've done 6 months without missing a day, so I don't want to miss one now! Also I think about my kids and what a good example it is setting for them, or I look at my vision board to remind myself of why I'm doing this (better role model, healthy, be around longer, love myself more, be hot...)

Definitely health and happiness for my girls as one of them (or I guess that counts as 2). And 2 family vacations per year for the rest of my life

Good morning!

I had the most bizarre dream last night. It involved a major league baseball player, my parents, and not being able to get gluten free food. Obviously I have some issues.

Starting off good with black coffee, pbutter whole grain g-f toast and grapes.

Jill-so glad you got some downtime! I had mixed feeling about Oz the Great and Powerful. But it really was beautiful.

Greenfield--how exciting! A beach vacation. I haven't been to Myrtle Beach since I was 2, but I do love the beaches in Charleston! We always see dolphins when we visit there.

***
The sun was out here yesterday and we were outside for most of the day. Even though nothing has changed around here, Mike and I both feel so much better!

I hope everyone has a great Monday. I am going to take my stuff to go to the Y after work and see how my knee feels. Might just walk my mile and call that good enough.

Happy MONDAY everyone! I hope you have all been well. Between July 4th holiday and three days of swim meets, I have not been able to be here with you all.... and I've missed you!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and for your here in the USA, I hope your July 4th was fun and festive!!

Weather has been nice and HOT around here (although I know our friends mid-west and southwest are in it even worse)! We went from pouring rain practically every day in June to SWELTERING temps in July.... but I'm not complaining! As long as I have a/c to sleep in at night, I will survive! And I'll take sweltering temps over snow ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!!

Eating was good and mostly OP over the holiday (thank goodness for my SIL who hit goal on WW earlier this year!) ... at least, I thought so until I got on the scale Saturday morning and saw a number I haven't seen in a LOOOOONG time!! I took a day (or so) to lament, worry, complain, stress, fret, *****, moan, crym and whine about it.... and now I am ready to get back on track, back to work, back on plan....with NO EXCUSES!! Anyone else ready for that??? Life is stressful enough right now without worrying if I am going to fit in my shorts on vacation in a few weeks! Too hot to over-eat right now anyway!

I've already been outside to pull weeds while it was still cool this morning... and of course, next up is a load of towels out to the line! DD opted to skip morning swim practice.... she is finally realizing that driving 4 hours a day for double practices is taking its toll on me! How can I get ANYTHING DONE around the house when I am gone 8+ hours ... not including work time! Her party date is coming up fast and furious and there is still SO MUCH to get done! It was hard to work outside in June because we had so much rain.... and now it is too hot to be outside during a good part of the day. So I'll get done what I can during the cooler morning hours and evening hours and then work inside mid-day. Sounds like a plan, right??

I told myself I would be here until 8 am and now it is that time! I will answer today's QOTD and then move on! TTYL................P

Have a happy and healthy day
I didn't see a QOTD posted for today yet, so I'll tackle the weekend question!

1. Health (ongoing, long-lasting physical and mental) for my loved ones.

2. Full-ride scholarships for DD and DS with money for the "extras" like traveling abroad.

3. Funds to travel the world for my family.

On that note..... I'm not sure if I ever mentioned that I have a SIL who is going through chemo for a third recurrence (or maybe 4th) of breast cancer with metastasis to other areas. It was looking really GRIM earlier this year, but she just recently reported that the ongoing chemo is working and there has been reduction in her cancer cells! This is WONDERFUL news, as they are not really giving her a very good prognosis. This is really the best we could have hoped for, short of a miraculous spontaneous remission.

Also, my Dad, who I know I mentioned was diagnosed with cancer last fall and had surgery in December, had a "clean" bill of health a little while ago as well! So I am definitely getting a bit of my #1 wish right now!.........P

Oh Rose! I know you've been struggling the past few months. I wish I knew what to say to be helpful. I can definitely understand the feeling. I hit a high number this weekend that I haven't seen in a very long time. Why are we struggling with this? We KNOW what to do and how to do it.... but it seems to be getting harder, doesn't it?? Maybe this a normal cycle? And speaking of cycles... yes, coming to that "mature" part of female life definitely makes the weight loss issue a bit more difficult.... and just about the time your body has adjusted to a particular way, Mother Nature throws a curve ball and changes the game! So be prepared for anything!

I have had a few moments lately where it just didn't seem "worth it" to continue on this journey.... but like you, I really LOVE being SKINNY! For the first time in my ENTIRE LIFE, I have actually LIKED the way I look for the past few years! And I am NOT ready to give that up for some ice cream and chips! And I know you aren't either! I know you have the added struggle with the GF issue.... but you'v done it before and you can do it again.... even with injuries!

I'm thinking of trying a cleanse for a few days, to see if that can kick-start me in the right direction. I have a friend who does a cleanse one weekend a month (she is a runner and nutritionist) and I'm thinking of emailing her to ask what type of cleanse she might recommend. I feel like it might be a nice way to hit the "reset" button with me! I know with your health issues and GF issues this might not be possible.... but maybe some sort of other "extreme" eating to get you moving in the right direction? I know I did a three day "look good naked" diet a while ago... it is essentially just lean protein (fish and chicken) and greens for three days. Not too tough to handle, easy to prepare, but you feel so healthy after those 3 days!!

If I have any other ideas/suggestions, I'll PM you. Just know that you are worth it, you are strong, you are AMAZING, you are an INSPIRATION with your daily mile and we are all here for you when you are down. ...................P
