Yes SweetSilver, I know it's hard but eventually you won't crave those bad foods as much, I promise! I found that allowing myself some sweets (or whatever I crave) makes me eat without guilt (nobody wants that) and satisfy me without over indulging. You can do it!

Wondering the same thing. This week I'm shooting for achievable goals. Nothing (for me) ruins my diet more than feeling like I'm failing st my diet.

So yesterday I was so glad to be where I was that I thought I could take a break from my diet. Wrong. Is it possible to gain 2.5lbs overnight? Also I finally have my periods, please tell me it has something to do with that! Need to get back on track on start planning meals again. RIGHT NOW! (starting by putting some quinoa on the stove, completely spaced out to soak the chickpeas last night).

205. Back where I started. greensad.gif Caught a cold and not doing the little exercise I can do. Working on not limping so much and strengthening the ankle. Doctor's appt on Monday. I'm hoping he'll clear me to skate. Still no hockey til July, but skating would be a start.

I gain about 5 lbs right before and during my period. Once it's over, my weight drops.

Well that's good to hear! I'll have to wait til tomorrow to see if it's back to normal, but I measured my waist and lost 1 and a half inch since last week! So hey, that's that that's good. hehe

 

Amandamarie you seem to be going thru a difficult time right now... I'm sending you some positive energy, wish you to get well and fast! I don't know in what shape your ankles are but it must be certainly rough on them to skate...

Is the scale lying?  I tried 3 times and weighed an easy 151.  I can hardly wait until Monday to see if it sticks.  That would be good for morale!

newmamalizzy, don't give up. what can you try this week to help get you below your starting weight?

C is for Cookie, wow that would be a tough situation. My grandpa is a hoarder and after my grandma died in 1999 his house has filled so much that he barely has room to sleep on his king size bed and sit in a chair next to the table to eat.  I hope you can get your degree done as fast as possible and get yourself moved to a different area.

Sweetsilver, yep, rebook and try again another day.  You can do it!

Jaxy, I have gained 2.5 pounds overnight from having too much salt in the food I eat. Usually I get to a more normal salt consumption level, and everything evens out again.

Woodchick, glad you are all moved in. Yep slow and steady wins at the weight loss game and usually keeps it off better.

Amandamarie, I hope your doctor appointment goes well.
 

AFM, I have all the weights submitted so far.  I just need to finish calculating the overall losses.  Will post the chart after awhile.  Hope today was a good day for everyone.

my last weigh in is 69kg exactly, so 152.1 lb

considering i consumed a certain amount of not so nutritionally sound food during the night (to aleviate some stress) am not so un-happy with my end results

 

and i should hoepfully get the chance to have someone watch over my little one in the paddling pool in the afternoon so that i can go and swim one km in the deep pool .... & probably going to do some more walking during the day ... when does the next challenge start ????? i still have at least 10 kg - 20 lb to shed !!!!!

SO many thanks Lilacvioletiris for keeping us motivated with your comments and tab checking .....

I'm here, checking in at 211.

 

Considering the stress of the past weeks: funerals, wakes, selling a house, moving everything into storage, finding temporary housing, moving in, homeschooling, life living, etc... I'm not too disappointed.  Things are doing in the down direction, albeit slowly!

 

I echo IsaFrench!  Thank you, lilacvioletiris, for your dedication, even as your life changes!  I have found being a part of these challenges to be very helpful, as simple as they are!

I agree woodchick! Thanks lilac!!

 

181.9 for me! And I'm very surprised since I had gained a pound the whole week and was expecting a gain, not a loss! But yesterday was good, and lots of walking! Will I be able to see 180 ish by the end of this challenge?

Arghhh sorry ladies- 152.  

 

Been a stressful couple of weeks for us.  DH is leaving for 4 days this weekend to handle some family issues, leaving me with the 3 kids.... I think it is going to be another stressful week for me.  Lets see if I can get myself working out!

132.2 this week biggrinbounce.gif

I did my 5k this Friday and it was fun. Next day, I was sore. lol. So I took a break from exercising this weekend to give my muscles a chance to heal. We are happy to announce that we are FINALLY cleaning out the house. We got a dumpster and actually throwing stuff away. YAY! I won't feel so claustrophobic anymore. lol.

151.5

 

Finally, some progress.  Taking out the "big guns": trying to keep a food log because I've been doing some mindless snacking and eating waaaay too many chocolate chips.  Managing to fit it smallish walks here and there-- it's a start.  I think the biggest thing slowing me down is fitting in those walks on a regular basis, but it's hard in the spring--dh is a busy pro gardener, our own garden needs tending, dinner needs to be made, always, always, always something that needs to be done making going for a walk seem like a luxurious waste of time.  I know, it isn't, but I do need to choose between walk and finishing chores.

Well, I officially cannot buy a box of Petit Ecolier cookies just to get a goody in me.  For a while there I could leave that tempting second package, promising myself that I could have it for breakfast-dessert the next day, and I waited all afternoon, I ate dinner, I ate some tangelos, and that second package was waiting for me.  I could have told dh they were for him.  Ohhhh, but that is so not-my-style!  So, just two.  Three.  What the hell.

 

Nope.  No more Little Schoolboys for me.  Damn!  The cookie-and-chocolate selection is limited in single serving options.  Another favorite is Walker's shortbread with a snappy milk chocolate bar (Trader Joe's has a nice, Fair Trade bar that's organic and nicely priced).  But, yes, I can eat the entire box.  With the Willy-Wonka-size chocolate bar cracked and placed on top each cookie, that's, like, what?  A stick-and-a-half of butter?  Ritter-- too much chocolate, not enough cookie.  Chocolate croissant (the really French-style ones), good but hard to find.  And, well, not quite chocolatey enough for a goody, so I end up wanting a no-nut Sun Cup in addition to the croissant and I might as well be eating chunks straight off a stick of cold butter.

 

gloomy.gif

 

At least the rest of what I ate today was good!  And I will enjoy the aftertaste in my mouth, because that was a good...ahem Sheepish.gif...BOX of cookies!
