Hey, PD, good to see you here. I'm taking some friends to dinner Thursday night and weighing in on Friday. That should have the same effect, right?
Amazing progress! You should be so proud of yourself! You look like a different person (in a good way, of course). Any big secret to your success? That's about the same amount as I lost as well. For me, Weight Watchers was the key. It's really the only thing that's worked for me. I've tried counting calories/fat/carbs, but those numbers get too big to keep track of. WW points only go up into the 30's, so it is easier for me to do. And of course exercise as well. But I abhor exercise; I wish I was a gym rat who loved working out, but I'm not. So it is a constant struggle to keep myself motivated to work out. But I still manage to drag my lazy butt to the gym 4-5 times a week, because I know I have to do that to lose and keep the weight off.Hello, hello, nervously peeks head round door,
Yip I'm back, feeling a bit guilty for not visiting as much as I should have.
Anyway quick recap , made my goal of 50 pounds to disney last year, ended up losing 82 pounds altogether. Got my weight to a place where I was comfortable.
Went to Disney and put on 12 pounds In a fortnight , yeah 12 pounds.
Lost 8 pounds of that before Christmas and then ate more than any sane person would.
I haven't as yet done my weigh in cause I want at least 2 weeks in the gym to take the rough edges off first.
So my new plan is to lose 14 pounds before I go back to disney in August.
Not sure if this will work but here's a before and what I look like today.
Hey, another Wisconsinite. I'm from Green Bay. Still getting over that terrible game on Saturday. talk about outmatched. gah.Hello Peeps! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was up and down. Friday I weighed in for the first time -- I was -2.2! Yay!
But then it was downhill from there. The Packers lost on Saturday. Booooo!
And then on Sunday we went to Costco and Kohl's since my wife had a 30% off coupon and a gift card she got from some coworkers. She bought a few things, and as we were heading to the checkout, she asked if I wanted or needed anything. At first I said no, then I changed my mind and said I'd look at the clearance racks (I'm a cheap-skate) for a sweater or two for work. I found a couple I liked and tried them on. They didn't fit... A year and a half ago, I was comfortably wearing size small. Now mediums don't look good. So depressing! It literally ruined the rest of my day and weekend. I'm still down about it today. I know I shouldn't let it get to me, but I take things like that really hard. I have a closet full of clothes that either don't fit or just don't look good, and I can't find anything at the store that looks good either. I guess what they say is true - ignorance is bliss. If I hadn't tried on those sweaters, I probably would be fine today. But that just brought all of those old "I'm just a fatso and I always will be" feelings rushing back again. UGH!!!
Ok, enough of my pity party. Time to use this as motivation to keep pushing forward. Onward and upward!
Nice to see you here, Melinda. Wendy and Mary Lou (Pixie Dust) show up occasionally. Daisy_77 (from Idaho) came back recently. I can't remember how far back Shannon (Wonders) goes. I see your pics on FB sometimes, and you look great. Plant-based really agrees with you.Just stopping by to say hello! I see Danielle. (HI, DANIELLE!) Any other old timers here? I'm a vestige from the original thread. Don't DIS much any more but miss my friends here. I'm whole-foods, plant based now so feeling better about my eating habits. Neeeeeed to exercise. Hope you all are well and happy! Take care.
I am here... I just forget to post.Where'd everyone go? Did you see your shadows and dive back into your burrows?
I'm having a tough time eating right, especially due to a hoard of goodies in the back office at school (not just mine, so I can't toss them), and also feeling exhausted. When I'm tired at the end of the day, and still have a ton of work to do, I tend to eat. I've changed a lot of bad habits, but that one is really hard to kick.
I have been pretty good about the exercise. That is the reason I am down .6. We have people coming for the Super Bowl tomorrow. We're getting El Pollo Loco for dinner, which is healthier than a lot of fast food. Just have to remember to drink my water to make up for the sodium.
Hope everyone is doing OK. Don't forget, this thread isn't for the perfect; it's for support.
Congratulations, and 10 lb goals are mine also.Hi all! Just passing through and thought I would say hi! I haven't posted here in a long time as life gets in the way of my DIS time.
Things are crazy with me, but am planning a 30th Anniversary trip to WDW in August for the whole family...kids, in-laws, grandkids! Can't wait and am working on getting some of this weight off...10 lbs at a time! Small goals work the best for me.
I'll pop in again soon! Happy Day!!
