post #661 of 737

I'm sorry, Tammat. You'll do better this week. hugs.gif

 

I lost 2.2 pounds this week.

 

Yesterday I weighed myself and I had lost a full three pounds. This morning, I actually gained .8 of a pound. And I don't know why as I was really careful with everything because I knew that weigh-in was this morning and I wanted it to be a good one. But....there you go. Darn fluctuations anyway.

Well done, Pam! clap.gif Tamela, don't beat yourself up. You WILL do better this upcoming week. smile.gif

OK, here's my story. I always have one, don't I? laughing02.gif As of yesterday morning I had lost a pound or so for the week. I had a doctor's appointment for a physical yesterday, with blood drawn last week. I have lost 22 pounds since i saw her 6 months ago. My blood work was excellent, glucose was good, all liver, kidney, thyroid function were good, bad cholesterol was low, good cholesterol was high, overall cholesterol was 163. She was quite happy and told me to keep doing what I was doing. She did point out that as I got closer to my ideal weight my body would start fighting the loss more and more and it was going to get more difficult to lose and not to get frustrated.

Sooooooooo as is my tradition after getting good blood work results I went out and had a massive cheese bagel with gobs of full fat cream cheese on it. laughing02.gif I tend to eat a few bad things for a few days after. I will have the cheeseburger and fries that I have been craving for over a month. laughing02.gif I told my doctor that and she just started laughing. So, no weighin for me today. I'll be back on track in a day or two. agree.gif

Good luck everyone!! You can do better than me. Come on I dare you!!!! smile.gif


I didn't buy them yet - vet bills and oh you know. Easy for me to put off, since afterall I work from home.  I'm the main person who has to see those baggy pants..lol.  Just stick to your plan and know that sometimes, there is a pesky upswing.  The most important thing - my motto in fact for weight loss is " I can only fail if I quit.  And I refuse to quit."  You can do this!

Congratulations, you are having a great couple of weeks!

I lost 1.18 lbs. this week but am annoyed.  Today was my highest weight since November 8th..so it skewed the average.  I knew I ate too much for dinner last night, but I love my concocted recipe for beef short ribs and had hot cocoa (a keurig one - only 60 calories) *and* a piece of "one bowl apple cake".  My calories for the day were fine, but it's really not so simple. If I eat too much at a meal or too many carbs, my pulse goes up and I know I've overdone it, with a weight uptick to follow.

Sigh and grr.  Now I have to mind my "peas and qs" so I have any loss for my upcoming usual averaging day of Monday.

post #666 of 737

After being sick nearly 3 weeks, and losing a very nice chunk of weight, of course, my appetite is returing--with a vengeance!

 

I'm at a nice goal point now, though I plan to lose far more. We will have our family over Black Friday. My goal is to look so good that they really will notice and comment on it. Wish me luck.

Yes. I also weighed myself this morning after 100 calories less yesterday and the scales went up even more!! Darn scales. I think they are broken! Lol! It's ok. I feel like I'm at goal but I just want to see that number on the scales!!!!

Good luck MargeCat.

Well done to all of you who lost. We are getting there. Keep it up!! smile.gif

Hey ladies (and possibly gents), just wanted to let you know that I was able to lose 60 pounds in 6 months (I've plateaued for the past few months due to an injury but I haven't gained). Around 30 away from my goal weight!
Good job on all of your weight loss!

many fluctuation s like that are water weight. I can gain and loose 10 pounds in a single day depending on what I have eaten and how much water I drink. I about fell over the first time my scale droped 8 pounds in 24 hours. It came back the next day. Talkef to drs and they said that is what it is. Lets say you eat s high sodium meal but dont drink enough water your going to gain.

Congrats on the weight loss, Pat!

 

I know what you mean about how weight increases sometimes, even though you stay within your caloric range. It happens to me when I indulge in too many carbs in one day.  I hope you were fine for your Monday averaging.

Thanks..yep, it's all about remembering to stick to my way of eating, which does involve fewer carbs. The calorie counting really is secondary for me.  I delightfully had a new one day low on Monday, which helped me to have a .28 lb. loss.  I'll take it :)  This week will better I expect.  I'm finally (two weeks so far) getting in 4-6 days of exercise per week.  Now to make that a permanent habit (at least 3 times for my minimum per week).

Well done gypsyrose!

My eating has been a bit off the rails for the past week. Going to try to start reining that in. Making Thanksgiving goodies isnt' helping.

:alright: Next week, Karen! 

 

Nothing. No loss, no gain. I was down about a pound yesterday (again) and everything was going great. I did nothing wrong, ate nothing wrong, and yet it all came back today. Water fluctuations are not funny. :wife:

 

(And next week is Thanksgiving! anon.gif)

post #681 of 737

Better no loss, no gain than a gain. smile.gif

Thanksgiving. cringe.gif I have to be honest and announce that there is no way I will be stepping on the scale next Friday.

I was thinking along those lines, too. :nod:

Congratulations Gypsyrose.  Winchester - if you averaged your weight over 7 days, you'd get a more accurate picture of how you are doing.  In a week I have days where I go up 2-3 lbs. but the trend over the 7 days is going down.

This past week I lost 1.46# - with the last 3 days being in a new "decade" of numbers.  I will be weighing in next Friday - good, bad or ugly ...lol.  I've made my exercise goal for 3 weeks now..going to really be sure I exercise on Thanksgiving, and prolly will eat the exercise calories I earn on that day :)

Have a good week folks - it *can* be done.  Last night I had fruit and yogurt, a ciabatta roll along with the rest of my bacon cheeseburger meal, and had a new low this morning!

post #685 of 737

ps I find it really helpful if I menu plan, and I know ahead of time what and how much of each item I'm going to eat. Then on the holiday, there is no fussing, I know what I'm doing and am happy with it.  If there is something special that I want that I can't fit in on the holiday -day, I make it the day before or after..just making sure I scratch that memory/longing itch sometime that holiday week.  If there is a thread for what folks are having on Thanksgiving, I'll gladly participate :)

post #689 of 737

I hate our scale. I need a ditigal one. I only trust the doctors scale for now.

post #690 of 737

I really do want to make an effort at getting involved in the community here. I drop off from time to time as I go through cycles of depression.
My starting weight is 245. To my mind that is horrible. I can't stand to see pictures of myself so I stay behind the camera and generally delete pictures that accidentally capture me.
When I worked I managed to stay around 190. I had been that weight for around 9 years after having my daughter and never was able to go down despite all attempts I made. My relationship with my daughter's father was horrible, controlling and seriously depleted my sense of self value. I actually developed the strangest of eating disorders; I was afraid to be seen eating and came to view the act of eating or discussion of eating to be as disgusting as bathroom talk. Since leaving him(best 160 lbs I ever dropped)7 years ago my weight has steadily gone up year by year.
My husband loves to eat and I love to cook; funny that, I hated tot eat but loved to cook.
Anyway, he is Diabetic Type 1(since the war)and requires a special diet. Most Diabetic recipes seem to be foods not typically enjoyed by the average "Joe" and packaged Diabetic foods are just expensive.
I cook from scratch most of the time. The last year has been rough. I broke my ankle in March and needed surgery, was denied surgery due to lack of money and insurance and then finally got insurance through medicaid got the surgery but also got the bare minimums of recovery aftercare. No physical therapy after being told to keep my leg immobile and elevated for 3 months. I had damage to my instep that was completely ignored and it slowed my recovery time more.
I have been getting to the local track and walking a lap a couple of times a week. We grocery shop at Sam's and that is exercise in itself. I am also working on training myself to eat properly and portion control.
I find that if I prepare something really delicious and actually enjoy it instead of wolfing it I feel satisfied without going overboard.
