Thank Goodness I weighed myself yesterday, BEFORE going out on the town with H and friends. Down 1 lb. this week. I had great workouts all week too, which is almost more exciting to me than the lbs lost. Keep going everyone!!

I didn't weigh myself this morning, but thought I'd check in anyways. My Jillian Michael's videos came in the mail the other day. Hopefully I'll find some motivation to try them out this week. I didn't know it when I ordered them, but 2 out of 3 of the videos say I need weights. I'll have to see what I can find to use.

I ordered water each time I went out to eat this past week. Saving money and being healthier! Oh, and I made a protein shake with my magic bullet last week. I need to do that more often! And one small thing, I ordered a cup of chicken noodle soup instead of fries with my cheeseburger... baby steps, right? Not like the cheeseburger was really good for me, but the soup was a better choice!

Does anyone give yourself a reward for staying on track? What keeps you moving?

Seeing you guys post "down ___ " is making me think, if all of you can do it, I can too!!

My reward for being good is knowing I didn't go over my calories for the day

Those small changes really add up!

I bought some hand weights (and a yoga mat) at Marshall's a few years ago when I bought a Jillian Michael's dvd. 30 day shred, I think.

I have given up drinking alcohol (for the most part) because drinking calories leaves me way less to eat.

Well this weekend I blew that. My boss had a very stressful week and she wanted me to go to the bar with her at 4:00 on Friday afternoon. Now who am I to turn down my boss? LOL I ended up having 2 Michelob Ultras and then ate an orange for supper.

Sunday we celebrated oldest DS's 31st birthday with baked ziti and peacan pie. I also made sugar cookies for the kids because they don't care for pie. I only ate a little ziti and then a little pie.

I also had two Bud lites on Saturday while we were out and 2 pieces of pizza.

But I'm back to eating healthy today and made it to the gym for pilates class at noon. Still no numbers to report as I don't weigh myself.

Hello all, mind if I join?

I lost a large amount of weight after D-day but those last few pounds have been stubborn about coming off. I thought I had tried everything.

Then I read about a resting metabolic rate. I scheduled one at the local university. The test shows how many calories I need to eat if I stayed in bed all day to maintain my current weight. I was shocked that it was 1427. I work out and eat almost exclusively vegetarian.

I spoke with the student who did the test, and she said weight loss is all about the calories, and that most people overestimate the calories burned during a workout.

I am happy to say that in the weeks following the RMR, I have lost 6 pounds and would like to lose a few more. Focusing on the calories more than the workout is working for me.

I wish everyone the best of luck, and feel free to PM me if you are looking for more information.

Jumping in here... again!

Back in November my weight blossomed to 180 - YIKES! I am only 5'2" so that is obese. At that time I was also put on meds for high blood sugar, which had been dancing around the high level for a few years and with family history he didn't want to wait any longer.

This was all just 4 months after back surgery and amidst a frozen shoulder. I used both as an excuse to not to a damn thing and lying around and eating junk just suited me fine. That depression thing after surgery is a real thing. I was/am on meds, but food has always been an issue for me (FOO crap).

ANYWAYS - that Dr visit was a wake up call for me. I have been on enough diets through the years that I *know* what I have to do, it was making the commitment to doing it that escaped me. So I pulled up my boots and made the commitment to ME. I had to do this for ME, for my health. So I got up off my couch - granted I cannot walk as fast, as far, or as long as I could pre surgery, but I can walk! And I can control what goes in my mouth - rather than watching EVERYTHING go into my mouth without any concern.

I made my goals in 10lb increments. My latest goal was to be under 160 by my next Dr appt (which is Monday) and I weighed in today at 159.6!! WOO HOO!! I am soooo excited. Have a ways to go, but I am patting myself on the back!

Now to make a mental note of exactly what clothing I'm wearing right now so I can wear the exact same outfit to the Dr on Monday to be weighed in!

So - make that commitment to yourself, for yourself. You'll be glad you did.

Logging my food intake was really an eye opener for me! I use the "Lose it" progam (loseit.com) and it is easy. It calculated that my caloric intake should be approx 1200 calories to lose 1-2 lbs/week and it has been pretty dead on.

Late to Sunday weigh-in. Been on holiday, much travelling and much visiting, so decided as a houseguest just to give up on calory counting for the duration. Up 3 lbs!!! Given how very lax I have been and also how sedentary, it could have been worse, but a salutary lesson in how quickly it can go back on. (Served wonderful cheeseboards all week, so gorged myself on cheese, having denied it to myself all January. Maybe I will have to find a happier balance between deprivation and my recent cheese-fest, I.e. don't deny myself completely)

Lucky2, very inspiring - good for you, well done!

with the exception of a few days, it's been a bad, bad week.

I had mom duty last weekend, and I'm not reacting well to both dealing with her and dealing with knowing her health is deteriorating.

Combine that with pms and my order of girl scout cookies sitting on my desk when I got to work on Monday...oh yeah, it was all about comfort eating and so not good.

I did better towards the end of the week, and most of this weekend. My SO was in town for Valentine's weekend, and he's working on eat healthier too. It was a lot easier to do together, than when I'm just feeding myself.

But then I got home from taking him to the airport this afternoon, and there was still a box of girl scout cookies that my kids hadn't devoured...

I really have to get a handle on this emotional eating I've been doing lately. Food as comfort is not a good coping skill.

I had a bad week too. Combine v-day treats + constant dull nausea from the chiropractor all week + PMS ... I gained a pound.

I lost 1 lb.

Inconnu - Love thin mints and tea. I am a comfort eater, too.

Ama - I hope you feel better.

We have a whole new week for us to lose weight. No looking backwards.

Posting here is motivating me. I don't want any pm's saying "Why didn't you check in? Put those chips down!"

Hello weight loss friends

Good Job Jo!!!

I am down another pound this week for a total of 17. Almost half way there

I need a favour from all of you. I go on vacation Friday and I know I am going to gain. 10 days of food everywhere I look and restaurant meals will be tough. I will do my best, but realistically I am going to be eating more, and things I haven't been eating for awhile now.

That's not the hard part. The hard part will be seeing that my weight is up when I come back and getting back to business. So please feel free to kick my butt when I come back

NIce work meta and jo!!

My week went well as far as working out, but the scale hasn't budged. This is normal for me. I can go weeks without losing an ounce, then all of a sudden, it starts coming off again. Working out hard has helped sooooo much with stress relief. I have a new home gym, which is wonderful. I can work out when it suits me, don't have to shave my legs, and I don't care if I am sweating like a pig..only Mr. boontje has to see me that way.

okay, I'm getting back on track this week. I made myself get on the scale this morning since I hadn't done a weigh-in in several weeks. It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be, considering my eating habits of the last week. I actually stayed the same, weight-wise, which is still back at where I started in the beginning of January. But I'm happy there wasn't a significant gain, which is what I expected. I also checked back in on MFP, and started logging my food again.

Now I need to do some menu planning and write up a grocery list, so I can go to the store on the way home from work tomorrow.

Total s far is 10 for me. I'm doing the 21 day elimination diet and the cashews threw me off. Going to start weighing in weekly from now on, though. Anyone doing this diet? It helps determine what foods you're sensitive to.


Just HOW stupid do you think I am, exactly?

Hi fellow healthy ones! With a little nudge from jo2love I have found this great thread! Thanks jo2love, didn't even realize this was here on SI.

Started my weight loss journey last January. To date I have lost 42 pounds. This year I have joined a gym and have begun working out. I needed to jumpstart my progress as I had reached a plateau.

I see a majority of folks on here weigh in on Sundays. I usually do weigh myself every day, but will post results on Sunday or Monday.

Great job all and glad to part of this with you!
