Sorry I am late.  Still 276 lbs.  Wasn't able to exercise for 2 days, due to babysitting my neice and not being able to get to the gym.

my weight turned out to be a big disappointing surprise. after a difficult week of not being able to get a handle on the diet part of dieting. i am now 240lbs. I'm am so ashamed, and would not be offended if my group wanted me out. I'm really sorry i let you down.

 

as of tomorrow morning, my husband is going to be trying to help me with my low carb low fat diet. after finding out today the docs will not touch me fertility wise until i'm 182

I can only speak for myself, but I expect people to have better and worse weeks. I don't feel at all let down! Keep moving forward, and make today a better day. Hugs!

crazy cat lady - please do not feel bad!  I don't know which group you are in, but we don't want you out.  Hang in there.  I also want to let you know that you aren't alone in the fertility issues.  Don't let it get you down.  My husband and I were never able to concieve, but we adopted a beautiful son 11 years ago.  Again, hang in there...there will be good things on the horizen for you!  joy.gif

Monday weigh-in: 151.6! biggrinbounce.gif

 

I have been sick all this weekend and didn't exercise at all. I have been on a liquid diet since Friday since I couldn't keep anything down. I am now well and will be back on my low carb diet (and exercising). thumb.gif

Oops! 133.2. This was one weird week and a busy one too. Also didn't exercise like I usually do due to a hurt knee. Knee is feeling better so NO excuses!

still 152.... kind of frustrating... BUT, this week was my birthday and the 4 year old just had to have cake -- it wasn't me, I swear :) Anyway, the cake is gone now and I'm hoping that the nice weather this week will encourage me to get moving!

I went for a "run" on Saturday, but my legs are so sore today! I did about 40 minutes of fairly brisk walking, but not as brisk as when my muscles don't feel like achy rubber... I'm going to try running again tomorrow.

This coming weekend will be really tough on me. DS's birthday party is this Sunday and I am baking his cake (temptation to lick the batter). Hopefully, I don't give in and eat 4 cupcakes and a pint of ice cream. lol. yummy.gif

 

Anyways, I am going to try out a U-Jam fitness class tonight. That should get me sweating.

145.8

 

This week is kind of a meaningless number, though. =/ I'm both very constipated AND retaining water for AF to start soon. I should start showing some nice losses next week and on, I think.

Sorry for the late weight-in!

 

Weight: 214.8lbs joy.gif

 

Started the Harcombe Diet Phase 1 yesterday... doing REALLY well so far. I have only done this one day and OMG I already lost almost 5 pounds... crazy. I did prepare really well this time and doing it with my sister. A little healthy challenge always puts my butt in gear!

I lost 1 pound this week.  I am now 175 lbs.joy.gif

 

Haven't eaten all that great lately, due to my gastroparesis acting up in the evening, but still getting enough protein through supplements.  I exercised yesterday by wheeling around town in the rain.  Thank God for ponchos! thumb.gif 

I have also felt bloated a lot due to AF not stoping.  I am on day 7 now and still no sign of it letting up.  UGH!
