3.5 hours!? Oh gosh!!  Wow!!  Now THAT'S endurance!!

 

It's so hard doing all this on so little sleep.  I think that's really what holds me back.  It's all I can do to drag myself onto that damn treadmill and just give it my best shot.

 

And yes - I need to purge the junk!  I want to lose at least this 3 lbs to get to 150 by Christmas.  I'm hoping we don't get too carried away with sweets and food this season, but at the same time it's part of life.  It's all about moderation.  I don't need to eat ALL the cookies or ALL the pie.  Just a slice or one or two cookies should be enough. 

 

That said, we had such a crap night last night, this morning I said fuck it, we're getting bagels.  I ate a WHOLE bagel.  10 points well deserved for not killing my kids last night!  LOL!

 

If you need any help with going vegan lmk.  I'm always here to offer advice!!

I have given up ladies.  These kids + living with my junk food eating parents temporarily is killing me.  I don't have the money for lots of healthy foods, I kind of have to eat what is here and save the good stuff for Zayla.  I have zero time to exercise (other than the running around with a baby in the ergo that I do a lot).  My meds make me too sleepy to work out either at night or in the early AM.  I am just taking a break for now until I move.  I continue to read though and wish you all success.  But for right now if I can manage to hang on to my size 3's...I am happy.  No matter how flabby and untoned I am feeling right now. :(

Man these last 10 lbs are just lingering.

Carrie: a whole bagel sounds absolutely heavenly! Good for you!

 

Melaya: That sounds like a really ban environment to be trying to lose weight in.  I say give yourself permission to ease up on yourself.  You'll get back to it when the time is right.

 

Becky:  I hear you.  Except for me it's the last 30...irked.gif  Well, to be fair, it's 20 to pre-preg, 30 to my goal. 

 

I've really been off the wagon for the last week.  My weight held steady through yesterday...amazingly...but we'll see what happens at ww tomorrow.  I made a big pot of veggie soup last night to help me get back on track.  Back on plan tomorrow!

It was!!  I enjoyed it.  Lol.  I have been terrible lately, not tracking, not caring.  I mean, I'm not going out hog wild and eating everything in sight, but you know what I mean.  Just not counting.  I've only got 3 weeks left that i've paid for and I'm just not sure what I should do.  Pay for more, or just try to do this on my own.  I feel like I know what I need to be doing, but then with the plan it's worked so well so far (when I follow it), am I dumb to just "give up on it" now?  

 

I'm scared to weigh in!  Good luck with yours, Erica!

DH finally exchanged the scale for one that works. Yay! I was glad they did the exchange, as we didn't have the original box or a receipt. It wasn't a big ticket item and we didn't expect it to break.This morning I weighed 129.8, but I ate horribly yesterday. Anyway I've lost 3-5 pounds in what seems like forever. I'm another with 10 pounds to lose.

 

Carrie, if you go off WW and start either gaining or just not losing, you can always start up again. I can't really say, as I've never done WW.

 

Good luck to all and hugs to Melaya.

I don't know how it happened, but somehow I'm down 2 lbs from last week.  I've been eating crap so, who knows!  I'm ok with it.  WW tells me I've reached my 10% goal!  I'm happy about that too!!  Hooray!

 

I'm doing ok with body image for the most part.  I wish I could get into my 6's but they are still wayyyy too small.  I'm living in 1 pair of 8's and I refuse to buy another pair in that size.  So.  Until I get my rear in gear, I guess those are my jeans.  LOL!

 

I'm debating rejoining the gym.  With DD going to preschool and Finn almost 4 months, I could totally hit the gym for an hour and put him in the little childcare area.  Idk.  Just a thought I had.  Not sure if I'd actually follow thru.

I got an awesome double stroller as a gift.  Maybe there is some sliver of hope for me yet.  I hope the kids actually like it and that I can start exercising somehow, someway again.  The other day I ran down some stairs and felt my tummy jiggle when I did it. :( I hate this birth control shot and what it's done to me.

post #89 of 92

CCL--congrats on the double stroller! ... I know what you mean about the jiggling. I'm still 10 pounds above my goal weight and I've felt my butt and thighs jiggle. My belly just makes me want to cry. I can commiserate with you. Just know that it will get better. hug2.gif

I feel like I haven't been on here in forever.  I'm running around like a crazy chicken these days and tapatalk isnt working on my phone. So I can only get on here when I have a minute to actually sit at my computer.

 

Melaya: awesome score on the stroller. I hope it helps you be able to stay more active. 

 

PL: I'm happy for you that you have a working scale now.  It can be a curse and a joy to be able to check your weight.  I go through periods where I check every day and that gets to be stressful.

 

Carrie: super congrats on the 10%!!! That's really great!  Regarding ww...if you're going to keep using the tools, renewing your membership is a really good idea.  If you're not gonna track, though, it's a big waste of $$. 

 

AFM:  I had a good weigh-in last week.  Down another 2.2, which puts me at 15lbs lost on ww.  At home sans clothes, I'm at 155.  My goal is to be in the 140's by the new year.  I think it's doable.  I just need to steer clear of the holiday baked goods.  I've had about 00 activity lately and I'll be working this week, so it doesn't look good for me over the next few days.  I hope to sneak in a workout in the evenings at least a couple of times.

i am here, but not really. Ugh. I am with the, I am sort of quitting group. The domperidone and metformin are making my cravings impossible. I am just trying to eat healthy and just have one mocha a day. But I am over my head. But each day I will try again.

post #92 of 92

My eating is still out of control.  I have even started eating in my sleep again thanks to my meds.  So there is something huge to work on.

 

Exercise is better.  I am using both the Phil and Ted stroller and the Ergo to take walks while I listen to my Pimsleur MP3's. 

 

Next step...get back to really working out (weight training). 

 

I can do this!

 

(No idea how much I weigh right now and it's probably better that I don't know lol)
