I can also tell from my clothes that I lost weight. I can fit very well in nearly everything in my wardrobe. Just a few things which I bought with the intention of losing weight and then fitting into them are still a bit tight. And I might even have to say goodbye to a few things that I love...

It seems so unfair: being successful at losing weight is so motivating - but it is in times when the weight does not go away that one would need that motivation...

Good afternoon

I'm just doing a quick check in. I walked 4 miles this morning with my sister. We had a birthday/swimming party at 11 for my friend's son. We've been friends since 1st grade and he now lives in Seattle, so we only see each other every so often. It was 90 degrees, so it was a great day for a pool party. We had a good time and came home tired lol.

I'm off to go through DS7's closet since I just found a container of clothes he can fit in from DS10. After that, I'm hoping to get the dining room swept and mopped. Oh, and did I mention I have more laundry to do? Where does it come from?!?! Then, I'm going to try dusting and some other light cleaning. Yesterday we shampooed our carpets. Ew...they we dirty Can you tell I'm trying to get some cleaning in since we've been running around so much?

I'll be back tomorrow to check in and see how everyone is doing. Have a nice evening.

Jill

Hi everyone,

I haven't checked in in a while. I've been really busy lately and also haven't been doing very well with my weight at all and have been feeling unmotivated so was staying away from the thread.
I don't know what it is but I just can't get back on track. I lost 42lbs in 6 months and since June I've just been stagnant... haven't been gaining or losing (thank God for all the exercise I'm still doing or I'd have gained back 20 lbs by now!!). But this morning I stepped on the scale and saw 180 again (which is up 6 lbs from my lowest) and that sort of gave me a kick in the butt. I do NOT want to go back up into another "decade"!!

Still can't figure out how I'm going to get back on track but I know that I have to. A lot of people lose their appetites in the summer heat but it's making me want to snack constantly.

So that's it... just came on to mope I guess

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and doing better than me with your weight loss/maintenance efforts!!

Have a great Monday!
WOOOOOHOOO! Heading in the right direction! Hope your knee is recovering well.

Right now my go to drink is water or the new Valencia Orange refresher from Starbucks with extra water in it. It tastes a lot like tang but better, and it breaks up the monotony of plain water.

Found another funny quote today.
DD opened her fortune cookie a few days ago and it's a good one. I collect fortunes so I'll have a lot of them. I need to go through my jar.

Trolls could be the saboteurs in your life. The ones that don't support you. Trolls could be those inner demons that tell you, you can't do this or you are not worthy. Trolls could be those who seem to think because they are fit, they are better than you.
Do not let the trolls get to your goals
Dang trolls! Always after my goals!

I finally dared to return to the scale. I am still 100 grams up from my July start weight. But I do consider this as the same. So am very happy about that! Hopefully I can get the scale moving again this week. Today I have been good so far - had a nice salad for lunch.

QOTD:
alcoholic drink: a glass of dry white wine or a prosecco (sparkling wine from Italy).
Non-alcoholic: my homemade iced tea which I make with decaffeinated Earl Grey tea and some fresh lemon. And I just realise that I forgot to start a new batch yesterday evening...
Glad the scale is moving! I love the idea of some nice iced tea today! Think I'll brew up a batch this morning! I do love Earl Grey, but try to drink green whenever possible (for the health benefits).

I think it really does matter where your head is at! So for the next couple of weeks I'll still workout like usual, watch my food, but not make myself crazy about it, and see what happens. I'm just going to monitor how my clothes fit and how I feel as that's always a great gauge for me . Magdalene, I probably won't submit another weight until the 25th, when I go away again for a few days. Thanks!

LISA - loved the FB cruise pics!! Where was the DH born?

ROSE - Here's the plan I'm following for the W&D: 3 days/week

Week 1 - 3 miles (m)/3m/5m
Week 2 - 3/4/6
Week 3 - 4/4/6
Week 4 - 4/4/7
Week 5 - 4/5/7
Week 6 - 4/5/8
Week 7 - 4/5/10
Week 8 - 4/4/7
Week 9 - 3/3/race day

I plan on doing a Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday rotation until I get to the 7-8 miles on the the weekends. Then I'll push it off to Sundays, so I have two days to rest before the lonfer distances. I'll probably also throw in some speed work once in a while. I used Galloway last year and have to sadly admit I think it caused me to overtrain, leading to the IT issues I ended up with. Good luck!
Good job coming up with a plan!

Staying busy I see! Did your carpets dry fast? It is so humid here I would hesitate to clean my carpets now. I wanted to clean my bedroom carpets before the party, but not sure I will have the time now to let them dry. My Bissell carpet cleaner developed a leak a few years ago and I never got it fixed, so now I have to rent a Rug Doctor to do the carpets. What did you use??

Nice work getting in 4 miles early in the day!!

I'm sorry that you are going through this. I think we have all experienced those times during our weight loss journeys. Would you like some suggestions that might help or do you want to just work it out on your own??

If I may be so bold, I will say that coming here and just visiting with us for a few minutes every day might be a good place to start!


**********************

Morning friends! Big sigh of relief since my one "work day" of the week just passed so I can relax just a bit.

Another steamy day on schedule for us today! But lots to do here, so no slacking just for the weather! I've already done a second coat of touch-up painting in the downstairs bathroom this morning and have a load ready for the clothesline.

I've noticed that my crazy super-hungry days of July 4th week seem to have passed. I just was CONSTANTLY hungry that week! I would eat DOUBLE my usual amount of breakfast and still have a growling belly in two hours. I was hungry for days! But the last few days I've eaten UNDER my points and been just fine. Obviously it is some sort of change in me, because I am just as busy and active and the weather is still HOT. Wish I knew what caused it and what stopped it though. My only clue is that I got an unexpected visit from "Aunt Flo" and it seemed to coincide with the hunger getting better. Stupid hormones. Wish my body would decide which side of the fence I am going to sit on!

Off to before I breakfast and then a bit of around the house before I have to to swim practice. I'll be sure to plenty of water in today's heat so that I don't !! Wish I could just or but so much to do before DD's ! In August though, I will enjoy before I have to when I send DD off to .

Everyone enjoy your day!!...............P

Thanks! I don't think I ever had a problem with eating too little. I think what is working for me right now is that I finally found a good balance for myself. I see that some of my habits are truly changing. I eat slower, I am used to smaller portions. So I think I am truly profitting from trying to stay on track for quite some time as that has helped to get used to a new lifestyle.

Sooo sorry, just realised that I have been a really rubbish coach this week!!! Hardly been on at all!!!! Now on leave until Monday so promise to try harder!!!

Lots of people missing from this topic since we started, probably due to being busy with other life stuff, soooo, QOTD for today (Wednesday for those of you in different time zones!!) is.........

What will you specifically do to help yourself focus until the end of the month?


I thought I was pretty focussed, but as I've said, completely forgot about my committment to you all...sooooo I've set some reminders in my phone to check in each day as soon as I get home from work.....I'm hoping that focussing on you all will help me focus on myself more!!! (Hope you get what I mean!)

I'm a planner by nature, but been so busy planning other stuff that I forgot this important committment. Not any more.

I'm doing another 5K in the park on Saturday morning, hoping to improve on 40:14, but it's really hot here, so not sure how it will go. I have not done any walking or running since Sunday as I was a bit sore in the hips again, so resting until Saturday.

Food wise, I feel like I'm on the edge of a slippery slope. Was bad at the weekend, and feel like I'm half heartedly chugging along with the food choices this week - not helped by the fact that it's payday on Tuesday, and the cupboards are looking a bit bare!!) First time I've felt like this since starting my journey in January.

Anyway, enough self-pity from me, hope you guys are all doing well, and I'll be back tomorrow to see what you've all been up to!

And soon all of those new habits will seem like you've always done them! Thanks for sharing that!

Oh poppycock... no such thing as a RUBBISH Coach! We've all been super busy and the thread has been quiet, so NBD!

I will continue to remind myself how much I LOVE being at my goal weight and how good and positive I feel EVERY DAY that I wake up knowing I haven't failed myself on this journey! I have lots of upcoming events and vacations that could contribute to a weight gain, but I am already making a "plan of attack" to be sure I don't let that happen

If you KNOW you are on the slippery slope then you are halfway to making sure you don't slide down it!

**************

DANG it is hot here! Not really complaining, since I prefer it over winter any day.... but it is hot to be getting stuff done outside. That being said, DD and I have been super productive, despite the heat! DD actually took the initiative and patched the concrete on the front of the garage. I've been waiting for DH to do that for months and he just kept ignoring the problem! I am so proud of her for just grabbing the bull by the horns and tackling something new!

I got the lamppost fixture put back together (which included cutting a new piece of glass for one side from a scrap of picture frame glass I had saved.... it looks great on its pole, but sadly one of the three bulbs won't light up... and I've already checked and there is nothing wrong with the bulb itself. I'll have to have DH take a peek at it when he get home tomorrow.

I also got some weeding done, three loads of laundry hung out (in this weather it dries as fast on the line as it would in the dryer), and a few other miscellaneous things. If we could be this productive every day it would be GREAT! That being said, DD and I are about to melt into a big sweaty puddle soon!

She has swim practice tonight, so I told her to take a break before we leave and rest and hydrate. Hoping DS will come along for the ride tonight and keep me company while I run a few errands.... we'll see.

Just want to share this.... I made a "lazy lasagna" of sorts for dinner last night. I made it without the pasta and then sliced some zucchini really thin and blanched it and used that as the "noodles" for DH and myself (kids had real noodles). It was an excellent two pot meal and didn't involve heating up the oven on a hot night! Plus it was loaded with veggies along with the 90% lean ground beef and TVP, so it wasn't terribly calorie dense.

TTYL..............P

Morning all! Super quiet here lately!

I'm waiting for the oil change place and the grocery to open at 7 am. If the oil change isn't overpriced (I'm downtown for swim practice so I am not familiar with this shop) I will have them do the oil while I buy groceries. It is amazing what you can get done before 8 am if you make an effort! After my walk Tuesday morning I went to the self- serve car wash (waiting for DD of course) and did a full vacuum and wash on my car!

Ok...shop is open! Hope to have time to pop on later to say hello to everyone! Stay cool! ..............P

Hello, I'm new here! I have been contemplating joining the board for some time. I have 25 lbs. to lose. I've been doing great with my exercise lately, this morning jogged 2.45 miles which is the best I've done in quite a while. What I really need to do is improve my eating habits. I've been compensating for the increased activity with increased calorie intake and that has got to stop. Starting again today I'm tracking my calories and activities.

Welcome aboard sugarnspicex4...it's a bit quiet here lately, but there are still a few of us for support. Well done on the jogging, it's something I've only started recently....doing my second ever timed 5K on Saturday morning.

New as well!

Just found the WISH board and thought about waiting until August to join a challenge, but I think waiting to start has gotten me where I am... So if I can, I'd like to join in for the last 2 weeks of July. Do I PM tomorrow? It'll be a very small goal, but hopefully a good way to start!

to both of you!! We are always happy to have more people joining in here!

If you want your weight loss progress being tracked, make sure you read through the instruction on the first page and then send me your start weight (as of today - or tomorrow or whenever you want to start) and how much you want to lose until July 31st and I will add you to the list! Then you can update next Friday and finally on July 31st before we move over to August and start with a new goal each.

Good luck and we are looking forward to chatting with you!

Weigh-In Day Reminder!

Good Morning everyone! It is Friday - so the weekend is about to start soon! And I really need a weekend now. Work has been truly horrible this week...

And Friday is also our Weigh-In Day. Please send me your weight. I will be away this weekend, so I won't get around to update the first page until Sunday evening.

I hope that I will get lots of happy PMs from you!

My weigh in wasn't so great. I had exactly the same weight as on July 1st. Which is ok. Yesterday I also had a really really bad eating day. First I could not resist the pizza at lunch in the work cafeteria and then when I was cooking dinner I was so hungry that I started to snack through the fridge... Feeling better today, so hopefully that was just a one day occurrence. But I am travelling this weekend, so not sure how well I will be able to make good choices... So, all in all I am happy with at least maintaining so far. And actually I expected a higher weight on the scale as it has been very hot over the last days and I can feel that I am retaining water. I actually expected the scale to be higher (I often know when I am going to be heavier just from how I feel in the morning). So in the back of my mind I am having this little hope that once it cools down, I will see a sudden downward jump. I know from my clothes that I have lost quite a bit of weight. I had to sort out two bras because they are just too wide now.

Next week is going to be better and I am really looking forward to getting back into my usual routine!!

Good morning I finished my first week of AP prep courses. Two more weeks to go.

It has been too hot to do anything. I went to yoga last night and that has been about it for the week. Dh went to mow the lawn early yesterday got half way through and had to come in take a shower before he went back out to finish and he only did the front.

I hope everyone who is in the heat tries to stay cool.

Have a happy and healthy day.

I've been compensating for the increased activity with increased calorie intake and that has got to stop. Starting again today I'm tracking my calories and activities.

Huge welcome to you both! So great to have some new friends to talk to! Things have been really quiet here, but I'm sure as fall approaches we will get back to our usual level of chatty-ness! Feel free to ask questions, look for food and excise help , and/or just chat about everyday struggles and triumphs!

******************

Happy Friday friends! Here at the Y waiting for DD. I did my 50 minute walk/run early and it is already so humid and steamy! But it's done!

Just 8 days until party day and so much left to do! I will finish what I can for outside projects by Sunday night and then move inside. I've got to tell myself "what's done is done and what isn't ....oh well!" My folks will be here Wednesday to help as well and I can hand off a few outside projects to my Dad if need be, plus DH is taking some time off next week, so I can put him to work.

I'm working on my "50 before 50" list as I sit here. Any suggestions? I've got 11 months and a small budget, so nothing grand like visiting the Alps (although that is on my big bucket list). I'm thinking of breaking the list into categories like 10 things that serve others, 10 'adventurous' things, 10 things to face my fears, 10 classic books to read, 10 "gee, I've always wanted to...." things.

That being said, as I have been thinking about this list, I have been pretty impressed with all of the things I HAVE accomlpished in my life. Nothing earth shattering or Mother-Theresa-esque, but still pretty neat things.

I challenge all of you to create a list of 100 amazing (or semi-amazing or just plain "neat") things you've done in your life. You might be amazed with yourself!


Have an AWESOME Friday! TTYL...........P
