203.5. 3rd week of keeping track of calories. 10 lb loss so far. Yay!
Still only can limp walk up and down the block. Physical therapy 2x a week. I do resistance exercises, using bands. Hopefully surgery will be scheduled for next week.

I'm at 151lbs. Bummer. I had a rough weekend, but I'm not making excuses. Definitely feeling low!

Reporting for duty. 184.2, so 1.4 pounds down.

The only guidance I got on the nursing issue was to wait until weeks post-partum, (when you're milk supply is established), to lose weight.

In God we trust; all others must show data. selectivevax.gifsurf.gifteapot2.GIFintactivist.gif

I second that question

I've had success with cutting out sugary food (except fruit) reducing grains and increasing protein. Not to the point of ketosis, I definitely don't cut out grains altogether.

I have never had under supply issues though. And I eat more or less whatever I want for the first eight weeks or so.

As some of you have seen from my byline, I am pregnant!  This has been 2 years in the making going through infertility testing over the last year and then finally this last month going through an IVF cycle. Tomorrow is my blood test to confirm but I am getting positive hpts so I am hoping that my blood levels are good.  Obviously I won't be losing weight for the next 9 months, but I will still be willing to be the cheerleader and keep the chart for everyone here because I know I will be back once I have had my baby.

 

It looks like many of you have had a great week! Those people highlighted in yellow haven't reported a Monday weigh in yet, but if you update, I will change it.

 

Exercising 4 times a week is key for many people to get over the hump of beginning to lose weight. So if your numbers weren't what you hoped, add in a few more exercise sessions or maybe some different exercise types.

Congrats on the pregnancy!!

 

Today we went to the park at 8 am. It has a playground and a skate park enclosed with a track and a fence so I walked while the boys played. Walked about 30 min before the middle child started whining and we had a broken bone scare (not broken thank goodness) so we went to the store and went home.

TMI

 

Ok so why does eating healthy and drinking water give me diarrhea? I mean, I appreciate losing 4.5 lbs in 2 days but it makes me feel like something is wrong..

Flushing out the toxins? Idk what was your diet like before, is it a radical change? Maybe you did eat something that wasn't good... Idk :(

Fairly radical, went from high carb/sugar to low carb. I don't feel sick though, I actually feel really good!

Lilacvioletiris, Congrats smile.gif


Yesterday, I walked to physical therapy and back. I did 10 minutes on the stationary bike, band resistance exercise, and modified planks.
Super excited because my ankle screw removal surgery is set for Monday. After that, it's on crutches for a week. Worth it because once I heal from that I will finally be able to walk properly. Then back on the ice!

today i managed a good swim session, am glad i went (i tried decluttering instead of going swimming lately ... but haven't progressed far in the decluttering anyway, without the benefit of the exercise session !)

 

tomorrow am going to clean the top of the fridge and the top of the cabinets in the kitchen; that involves getting the ladder, getting up and down the ladder and swinging arm movements for the cleaning part so i'm going to count it as exercise !!!

 

have just had a bowl of porridge + blueberries

hoping i'm going to resist mindless eating & need to drink my herbal tea now !

Day 2 of tracking what I'm eating using MyFitnessPal. So helpful! Seeing it all laid out totally helps keep me motivated to eat well all day, even through the night time cravings. I have a much better sense of when I can have a treat or when it might better to have an herbal tea. I haven't been exercising much this week. I hurt my shoulders (so badly!) wearing dd in the ergo. I'm not totally sure why it happened but I think it had to do with the fact that the strap across the back wasn't adjusted quite right and she leans back a lot. I think I should be fine in a few more days. It's difficult to find time to do any other exercise before work while I have dd. She won't sleep in the stroller for me these days. It must be a phase. Does anyone have any suggestions? Putting her in a carrier for her nap works so well because I am so pressed for time and she usually nurses to sleep, she doesn't lie down on her own.

I love MFP! I find it super easy to track my food and exercise and I have encouraging friends on it. I also like some of the groups for great advice.

I'm using MFP as well. It's been really helpful. Lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks. Still need to add more protein. My percentage is too low.

I decided to switch it up and am going to do some turbojam instead of turbofire/p90x hybrid. I get bored WAY too easily with these exercise dvds... but I think the switch will do me some good.

The scale didn't seem to mind 2 days of Buttery Bread Bingeing (affectionately known as BBB).  Fresh buttermilk biscuits (all mine, apparently) and yesterday a buttery chocolate croissant.  Good for the spirit.  Now, back to lettuce-wrapped tacos!

Good for you SweetSilver! YES, we should be able to indulge a little bit, my problem is that I over did it. See, it's Festival time here in NOLA (although it seems to be all-year long) and there was looots of eats and drinks... Will do better next week!

Love the idea of lettuce wrapped tacos :)
