So I just noticed that when I reran my BMI today it said "moderately" overweight rather than "severely" overweight.  Funny how the little things make your day. :)

Did I mention that pop is an issue for me?  OMG . . . I can't leave it alone this last week or so.  I have tried switching to Crystal Lite and I like a few of the flavors but every time I stop in the store I get that "what the heck" attitude.  It's very hard for me to give up that caffeine.  I don't drink coffee or tea so it's my crutch.

Well . . . the birthday weekend is officially over.  Funny, I don't FEEL any older. :)

I made chocolate chip cookies with the grand kids yesterday and had some.  I should have sent them ALL home with them instead of only some. :P  We went to Ciao Bella for dinner and I had pasta and braised veal.  I've been craving pasta so much lately but I didn't even make a dent in that monsterous plate!  I was too stuffed to even try the tirimisu . . . which is probably a good thing.  The pasta and beer was plenty!  I didn't step on the scale this morning to see what the damage was and probably won't until tomorrow. 

Today I'm going to work on paperwork and taxes, plan meals for the week and get to the grocery store so I have something other than chocolate chip cookies to eat! ha!  I have Monday off work as well I might do a little clothes shopping . . . or nothing at all.

I hope everyone is having a strong week so far.  We have to stick with it and refuse to give up what we MOST for what we want NOW.

We can do this!

Good theme!

And with "persistence" in mind, what is an obstacle you struggle to overcome?  Are you trying to drink more water?  Get your protein up?  Are you trying to kick caffeine or your daily donut?

For me it's sodium and carbs.  They are too high!  So this week, I'm going to focus on less salt and bready items.

My challenge to you all is to post a common struggle you have.  Work on it this week and post your results along with your weigh in next Friday.

We can persevere!

Hi Joe!

Welcome back!  I have an interest in cooking healthier too but I have a few obstacles with raw produce so I'm somewhat limited.  Hoping I'll be able to pick up some ideas from the group and maybe incorporate modified versions.

I'm excited to see how this group is growing!

I'm curious what every one does to help themselves stay on track.

One of my tricks is that I eat the same thing every work day for breakfast.  When I choose lunches, I have the same thing for 5 days and then change the following week.  But I always have roughly the same count for the day.  That way I pretty much know where I'm at for dinner and how much more I can have.  On the weekend, my husband likes to go out to dinner a lot.  So to compensate for that, I eat breakfast but don't have lunch.  That way, I can enjoy a nice dinner and drinks with him and not worry about what I'm doing to my count.

How do you plan your meals?  Daily?  Weekly?  What's your trick?

SW: 128

CW: 126.5

Goal for the next week is another lb if possible and to overeat on Super Bowl Sunday. 

I know a lot was water weight but it's good to see a drop. I also stuck to my half marathon training plan which is even better!

I forgot all about Super Bowl!  Thanks for the reminder so I can plan ahead.  Awesome loss and way to stick with your training! :)

Hi Fat2fitt and Burton!

I have to say . . . it's kinda nice to see some shorties joining!  :)

I always think to myself . . . if I was 5'8" I wouldn't be here! haha

Just wondered how everyone is doing this week.

I'm hanging in there so far.  Staying in my limits . . . even with a pan of Reeses bars staring me in the face every day. :)  Resisting the pop is harder.  Some days I win, some days I don't.  But if I end up having one I try and make sure it's within my calories.

I tore apart my closets looking for the aerobics dvd's from my last CC run but I couldn't find them.  I guess that means a trip to disc land to see what's new.  Good excuse to pick up some new music.

Trying really hard to get that 1 1/2 pounds off by Friday.

I hope everyone is meeting the goals you set for yourselves!

Hi Slimmer!

Sounds like we are similar.  I started at 216.  Good idea to break it up into more manageable pieces.  Makes it more attainable.

Welcome to the group! :)

I'm struggling this week.  I'm catching a cold, sneezing, coughing . . . but it's not quite full blown.  Just enough to drain my motivation and make me want to stay curled up on the couch.  My husband is wrapping up the current rehab project so I won't see him much the next few weeks which makes it difficult to cook decent meals.  Cooking for one is hard!  So I'm not eating the right things at the right times.  I'll have my grand blessings over night tomorrow night (4 and 2 year old girls) so I hope some of my energy returns by then.  Hoping to be a pound or 2 down tomorrow but who knows how it will look after this funky week.  Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress!

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
