Remember today is weigh-day. Finally I have seen some movement in the right direction, 2 off for me this week.......quite pleased with that after my junk eating holiday 2 weeks ago!!

Well it's day off for me today, so 1st load of washing is nearly done in the machine (gym gear that I need for my 5K tomorrow!), the hoover is ready to be thrown around the carpet (daren't do it too early in case I wake up the neighbours) and then I have shopping to do. It's FILs 80th Birthday tomorrow and we're throwing an 'english tea party' for him. Eldest son is coming over from Belgium and bringing drink, middle son is responsible for the savouries, and my OH, the youngest (which means me!) is responsible for dessert. We're having french fancies, bakewell tart, jam tarts, lemon curds, swiss roll, treacle tart, battenberg and scones with cream and jam. I guess you guys will need to google most of that!! It's all very traditional stuff over here.

Hope many of you have had a successful week on your weight-loss journey. Look forward to hearing from you all over the next couple of days.
Happy Friday friends! I am doing a quick check in now and will be back around lunch time.. I have had a loss! In the 5 (well really 4) shorts days I've been following the atkins plan starting from induction again I'm down 3.4 from last friday's weigh in (but 5.9 from this Monday's weigh in!! ) but only 1.5 down from the beginning of the month and half way to what I set as my goal this time around.. I have trouble lately with nighttime snacking and weekend in general - so we'll have to be careful .. Next week Zumba starts YAY can't wait only wish I had enough $$ to do both classes but 1 at this point is better then the none I have been doing!

I havent been posting much but I've read all post - Keep up the great work, one day at time and we'll all succeed!

Oh my those desserts sound very tasty indeed! TTFN

Down another 3.4 lbs this week. Total so far is 10.2 this month but the trouble is, I don't see where it's coming from. Sure would be nice to be 20-30 lbs down from now. But I'll take every positive step I get. I guess I'm just tired of being fat. Still have 30-35 lbs to lose. Then maybe the ballroom dancing will look prettier! ;-)

Do you know what 300 calories looks like?

300 calories look drastically different when you're eating in instead of dining out. Choosing healthier, more nutritious foods--at home and away--means you can eat much more food and still lose weight.
Forgive me for being a little behind this week. I seem to have totally "lost" Thursday!

Since I started WW, I'm much more in tune with what s erving actually looks like, what calories look like and how I can "get more bang for my buck" calorie wise. Growing up, my mother always served us our salad after the meal (we kids think it was her way of tricking us into thinking that was dessert ). Now, I always make sure to make it big and eat it first. I've found it fills me up and I'm less likely to eat too much of the empty calories. Plus, now that I've become a total Italian food snob, by using a great imported olive oil as a dressing with just a tiny bit of kosher salt, I'm getting those healthy fats, which also helps fill me up, instead of using regular salad dressings that are made with who knows what.

And since I can't get enough of the picture-loving thing now, here's another one of my baby!

Hi, everyone!

Congratulations to everyone on their great accomplishments - whether scale-based or not - this week! My NSV this week was DD9's birthday...I made the cake I always make for our family celebration (gave DH the bowls to lick to save myself ) and brought it to our dinner out. DD chose sushi, so I had an easy time eating light. And then I cut myself a piece of cake, logged the points, and was done with it. DH has been working down the cake leftovers since Tuesday night, but I've managed to stay away from it! I think my new-to-September rule of not eating after 9pm unless it's a special reason (we're out, etc.) has really helped. I tend to lose my power to make better choices the later it gets, so if I just say food is off the table (so to speak) after 9pm, I can't choose the things I know I shouldn't! That cake is reaaaallly good, too. If I do say so myself.

And it's paid off - I'm down 2.2 this week! This weekend is full of challenges...tonight I'm going out to dinner with a girlfriend at my favorite restaurant. Managing points veeerrry carefully today for that! Tomorrow is DDs birthday party - hello, American Girl! Luckily, they have some good choices on their menu, and they'll accommodate my requests to hold this, or put that on the side. That includes a cake, too, and of course I'll have cake with DD! One piece. One leeeetle piece.... Tomorrow night, I think DH and I are doing a movie date night! MIL is in town, and she usually shoos us out on Saturday nights when she comes to visit. We go to a movie theater here (Alamo - yay, we have one!) that has a full menu. As long as I don't slip into the pizzas, I should be okay. But it's just one thing after another this weekend!

On the exercise front, I ran 4 miles this morning and will do another run on Sunday afternoon. That should help offset some of the extra indulgences.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Keep up the awesome work!

XO
Liz

Also, congrats on turning lime green and an incredible weight loss of 6 pounds this week! That is awesome!!!
Thanks! It does help to really "see" how easy it is to make your meals look more appealing and be able to be satisfied with good food.

Thanks so much for hostessing this month, Helen!

Have fun at the party and enjoy!

Eliza-love the sound of your FIL birthday party (I am all too familiar with all those treats). Sounds delicious!

I'm delighted to say that I'm a loser this week
3lbs off which means I'm 2 lbs down since I started! . So pleased with myself (just goes to show what I can do when I stick with it)!!

Good luck at the scales everyone
for being a loser this week! Having success will help you to build on it next week, too.

Thanks for your kind words!

BRB smilie police are after me.

Glad to find my support group.
(overall, as of 09-19-13, I am at a 51 pound weight loss)

Some lifestyle change (I don't like saying the word "dieting"), humor -
When I first got started, I would weigh myself with the scale close to a wall. Well, the numbers kept on "going all over the place" so I had to use my hand to lean against the wall......IN ORDER TO SEE THE NUMBERS CLEARLY.
(I had to look at the scale sideways cuz my stomach 'got in the way')

OUCH!!!

Once I got to the point that I didn't have to do that anymore, I first saw that I was about 3 pounds heavier!! (the wall 'helped" me cheat & I didnt even know it) -

NOW, it is such a pleasure to step on that scale.

P.S.
Hey Eilza32, thanks for the heads up on British foods as I just learned a few days ago, the CORRECT way to have coffee w/cream (I am a foodie and am looking forward to seeing London for the very first time in August).

Getting caught up on this thread - I am reading now from page 1 -
T.T.F.N.
Thanks for joining us and a big on a great losing year so far! Great intro post!

I know all of your treats, Helen, we have had many family vacations in the UK in self-catering places and one of our biggest joys was trying our way through all the different food offerings. My sister is very partial to Battenbergs, I would prefer the scones.

---

Very happy with my weigh in today, I lost over a pound last week, which is good for me. Now my first interim goal is less than two pounds away. Maybe I can even manage to get there until the end of the month. That would be fabulous!
Congratulations on your weigh in, Magdalene! You are doing great as you get closer and closer to your goal.

I am a slow loser for sure -- it's taken 31 weeks to get to 20 pounds but I'm okay with that because it's gone for good now. I'd had the mystery gain the week before so I was happy to get rid of that quickly. It's a journey, not a race.

Thanks so much, Pamela! And that big loss was on the scale I was convinced was bad luck.

Congrats on a loss and for getting off to a great start! And you are halfway to your goal already! Still a 1/3 of the month to get the rest of the way -- you can do it!

I think I need smilie intervention again . . .

Wowza! Great loss! Ten pounds gone already this month! Do spend a little time and enjoy your success, too, and don't worry so much about what is left.

That tea sounds delightful! I am familiar with a swiss roll and a treacle tart and scones.... but the rest?? Are lemon curds an actual pastry or do you just serve straight up lemon curds?? Love lemon anything!

WOOOHOO and congrats on your loss this week!

Oh my those desserts sound very tasty indeed! TTFN
Congrats on the loss so far! If you would like any Atkins recipes or suggestions, let me know. DH is on his second go around with Atkins (this time since early 2011). I don't find it tolerable myself and stick with WW, but it works for him and so I have developed a rather impresive collection of dessert recipes to keep him from having too many cravings for junk!

Are you kidding?? 10.2 is FABULOUS! Most of us would give a small fortunate to lose that much in a month! Don't be hard on yourself!!

Plus, now that I've become a total Italian food snob, by using a great imported olive oil as a dressing with just a tiny bit of kosher salt, I'm getting those healthy fats, which also helps fill me up, instead of using regular salad dressings that are made with who knows what.

Was your Mom French? The French generally serve the salad last. I don't care for that way either. Nice job getting the healthy oils. I need to get past my pananoia of oils!

Congratulations to everyone on their great accomplishments - whether scale-based or not - this week! My NSV this week was DD9's birthday...I made the cake I always make for our family celebration (gave DH the bowls to lick to save myself ) and brought it to our dinner out. DD chose sushi, so I had an easy time eating light. And then I cut myself a piece of cake, logged the points, and was done with it. DH has been working down the cake leftovers since Tuesday night, but I've managed to stay away from it! I think my new-to-September rule of not eating after 9pm unless it's a special reason (we're out, etc.) has really helped. I tend to lose my power to make better choices the later it gets, so if I just say food is off the table (so to speak) after 9pm, I can't choose the things I know I shouldn't! That cake is reaaaallly good, too. If I do say so myself.

And it's paid off - I'm down 2.2 this week! This weekend is full of challenges...tonight I'm going out to dinner with a girlfriend at my favorite restaurant. Managing points veeerrry carefully today for that! Tomorrow is DDs birthday party - hello, American Girl! Luckily, they have some good choices on their menu, and they'll accommodate my requests to hold this, or put that on the side. That includes a cake, too, and of course I'll have cake with DD! One piece. One leeeetle piece.... Tomorrow night, I think DH and I are doing a movie date night! MIL is in town, and she usually shoos us out on Saturday nights when she comes to visit. We go to a movie theater here (Alamo - yay, we have one!) that has a full menu. As long as I don't slip into the pizzas, I should be okay. But it's just one thing after another this weekend!

On the exercise front, I ran 4 miles this morning and will do another run on Sunday afternoon. That should help offset some of the extra indulgences.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Keep up the awesome work!

You are doing GREAT and fitting the healthy eating into real life!! And how wonderful that you can see the changes it is making on the scale!!

After a pretty depressing week, the scale was very kind to me today! I am down 5.0 lbs. for the month, which means I'm going to be WISH green!

What happened this week? Our pet rabbit passed away on the morning of my dd's 9th birthday. Rotten timing, right? He was pretty elderly by rabbit standards and had been suffering from a number of ailments. I had already spent a bundle on a vet visit and several medications three months ago. It was a sad day in our house, but we're healing. Also rotten is the fact that I had to deplete our vacation fund in order to pay off credit card bills (I never carry a balance). Lots of expenses have been piling up lately. I still have the plan for a WDW trip next July but I'm going to have to get creative to make it work.

This are going well, other than the whole house fighting a cold.
DS is loving senior year, especially with double study hall A and B channel. He only has one day a week that he needs to be at school all day. He is running, all of them are. The leg is ok, it still sore sometimes but he's powering through.
We have a big meet in RI next Saturday and that will be a true test of where he stands. He is running Varsity in that race because he finished top 7 for the team Tuesday.
How is DD doing in college? Does she love it? Did she get a good roommate?
How is DS doing without his big sis around?

I'm so sorry about your bunny. DD must have been so devastated. We lost our two guinea pigs just a month apart a few years ago and DD and I were so sad. And we too, had gone to a few slightly extreme expenses with one of them, going to a special small animal surgeon an hour away when she needed "girlie" surgery.... and of course, she wasn't the one to die first. But I think she died of a broken heart when her BFF died.

And I can totally relate about the vacation fund. I did some "robbing Peter to pay Paul" this summer in an effort to NOT dip into my fund, but I had to anyhow (darn college expenses!). DS and I are going to Orlando in November (NOT Disney ) and I was hoping to have enough set aside to pop into a park for a day, but it won't be happening now. I'll have to be content with an evening spent at DTD and maybe a monorail ride.... so close, but yet so far!!

Keep plugging....you can make the vacation happen, you have enough time for some creative financing. How about selling unused things on an online yard sale? I recently joined two on FB and sold my first item this week... $15 toward the vacation fund!

She is doing great. No roommate.... lucked into a forced single (which means no extra expense for it), but I'm afraid it is going to spoil her. She is in a beautiful dorm (Honors Program housing ) on the third floor with a spectacular view of Mount Hope Bay and the Mount Hope bridge! So lucky! She said she drawers her shade up every morning to enjoy her view... what a way to start the day!

DS is doing GREAT without Sis. He keeps talking about how quiet and calm life is now!! It is true though. Without all of the mad dashing around for swim, plus all of the non-stop chatter (and some bickering, of course) between she and I, things are definitely QUIET at our house now. I miss her SO MUCH!

Where is DS running in RI?.... remember, my DD is in Bristol!! WTG on the top 7 finish for DS!

Praying for renewed health for you all! Lots of icky runny noses and coughs here at my school.... ICK!

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

Okay folks... I'm caught up and then some! Off to text my DD while my kids are at Special!............P
