159.5

 

Had my period last week, that helped.  It's still a toss up what I'll see on a particular day.  Last week I posted a "gain" that was really the top range of what I'd been already seeing.  I could easily have posted a one-pound loss, or even an extra half pound gain.  But this week I've been seeing some slightly lower weights, though this came as a surprise.  I was expected 161- 161.5.

181  -- What the heck is wrong with me??? Mentally, I just can't seem to get control of my eating.  I will do well for a few days and then BAM!  I am constantly craving and giving in.  I am doing pretty good with exercise.

Yay! Losing again. Sorry for the late entry. I was working yesterday and didn't get a chance to weigh myself before I started.

165

Up 1... My scale is being weird these days, the first 2 times I weighed 164.5, then the few times after it was stuck on 165. (I try to weigh myself on different tiles in the bathroom and every time it's a different number...!). Haven't been exercising as intensely but I am sticking to exercise everyday. I do feel pretty good though, and I like what I see in the mirror.

Jaxy, I know all about the "different tiles" approach. I try to pull my scale out to the same place on the "tiled" linoleum that is on my floor. I think the balance of the scale does make a difference.

Sorry I haven't posted yet. We were out of town for the day on Monday, then DD1 didn't have school yesterday so it's totally thrown me off. I did manage to weigh in on Monday: 173.5. I'm ok with that since I had a bad week for eating and didn't exercise at all. I think the only reason I had only a 1/2 lb gain is because I got food poisoning and hardly ate on Friday or Saturday! This week has been better so far, but I'm going to a wedding on Saturday and I fully plan on eating and drinking a lot! Guess I better go for a run.

Lilac I do weigh myself on the same time but sometimes even on the same one the numbers are different...

 

Trish I love your honesty haha! Have fun at the wedding!

 

The last few days have been rather bad. Also the rain is setting in for a few days so that won't help... All I want to do is curl up inside and eat! ooh!

I logged in this morning and wow, does mdc look different. I know that there was a change coming, read about it a couple days ago, but the interface is well, not as pretty, to say the least. Need to figure out where my list of threads I follow has gone to. I liked knowing if there were new updates to threads I have posted on.

Found what I wanted "User CP" takes you to the control panel where your subscriptions are located.

You can also go to the bar thingy on the left hand side (on the mobile site.) When you click on it, it pulls a menu out to the side where it has a 'Subscribed Threads' link. I'm not liking how you can't get back to subforum you were in when you're in a thread without going to the main forum page. At least I haven't figured out how to do it from my phone.

221.8, at least it is down from last week. Looking forward to doing some gardening. Been sick and still trying to kick this runny nose.

162.5

Gah! 2 birthday parties in one weekend. I thought I was eating more wisely, but nooooo... Funny, my scale is a old dial scale and I have to step on about 5 times and choose the one that shows up the most (3 times, usually) but this morning, it kept showing 162.5. "What, lady, you don't believe me, well here it is AGAIN." I knew last week's weigh in seemed a bit low, but I've been averaging below 162, so this pop up is a surprise.

Oh well. At least I'm not looking at 164 anymore.

I'm not getting much exercise in, but I KNOW that will change in about two weeks. I'm on summer break then, and have two days when getting in some exercise (like an hour of challenging exercise) WILL happen. I'm glad that I haven't been steadily gaining during this challenge. Dog walks keep me even at least.

I got totally off track! We had visitors for Memorial Day and I decided to just eat anything/everything. Plus I donated blood recently and my energy tanked for about a week after. And the biggest thing is dealing with my mom getting diagnosed with lymphoma except they need to do another biopsy to get more info: type and how advanced. I live somewhat far from her.

Hopefully I'll be able to report a loss next week. This Monday, I think I was still at 180. (Got back up to 182 last week.)

Exercise is better this week:
Monday - 3 miles + strength training
Tuesday - 2 mile nature walk (took ~2 hours)
Wednesday - 2.6 miles outside (preferred over treadmill)
Today - 3 miles

Last week I only went on two runs.

I didn't report on Monday; we've been out of town. I don't think my number will be good, but I will report this Monday.

Looks like people had a hard time finding our thread this week because of change to mothering.com this week.

Here are week 6's results:

It is tedious but I am back to logging food/calories into MyFitnessPal. I make better choices when I have to log it in. It also allows for me to realize that a cookie fits in just fine but three would be bad!
