Hello Everyone,

Belle, glad you posted and congrats on losing 1 lb.

Same old mantra for me, stayed the same.

Hope others did better.

Hi Diana and Belle. I'm happy to report I'm down two for a change. Goal still looking impossible but if I can at least knock a chunk out of it I'll be happy.

I finally had the nerve to weigh myself after our Alaska cruise and 2 weeks of post cruise eating. I gained 8 lbs.

I know a number like that is a shock to the system after a cruise, but in reality it seems to come off pretty fast. At least that's been my perspective. I'm sure Alaska was worth putting in a little extra effort for a few weeks!

Hi all!

Belle ~ nice ditty & loss!

cruises42 ~ Alaska is worth the pounds & they do seem to come off easier after a cruise for some reason.

I'm down 0.6 lbs from the lowest weight I recorded last week so then much more from the higher one.

I'm being pretty good about not eating after supper so think that's what's helping.

Have a nice weekend.

I set a goal to lose 20 by the time I get on the plane. I got quite discouraged after the first couple of weeks and not seeing any lower numbers on the scale after working so hard and being so good in diet and exercise. Thursday I stepped on the scale for the first time in a week (I was being stupid and checking it everyday) but to my suprise I had shed 4! WooHoo! 11 weeks until I get on that plane and 12 till the ship! I GOT THIS!

Hi everyone.. Hope you all had a good week. I am at the same weight again.. Not gaining is a good thing but since I am now in such good shape and being careful with what I eat thought I would see more weight come off..

Hello,

Thought I would check in. Good to see some losses. Cruises42, you will get those pounds off.

It's really hot where we are.107 today, 106 tomorrow and over 100 I think through next weekend. Yuck.

Hubby and I went out this morning plant shopping. Our new house had no backyard landscaping. Had some concrete work done. Now for the other stuff.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Hello Everyone! Having a good Sat.?

Diana you didn't gain. Say Yea! Isn't it to hot to plant plants now?
Plus your going to be going away. Can\t water unless you have a system.

Mike good loss. A loss is a loss if you don't make your goal at least your less.

Cruise 42 I know you gained in three weeks fast but we never lose fast. But you'll
some water weight next week.

caohnmtz Great loss, love those whoosh's. You can make it in 11 weeks.

Rob I know when were real good the weight should come off.. But isn't nice being in good shape?

Jo Glad you had a loss. Great that your not eating in evening. That's a hard one.

Jo you asked where I was cruising. 10-1 to 11-5-17..35 days. B2B
Mexico 7 day Casino Deal, Inside Cabin.
Hawaii,Samoa and Tahiti 28 day had Window, had upsell to Premium Balcony, (very large balcony.)
Great Deal HAPPY! Now can join all of you cruising in Sept. and Oct.

Belle, nice trip you have planned. Glad you are doing that.

Re: plants. We bought well established plants. Have timer and spinner thingy for when we are gone. Or our neighbor will water.

Today is forecast to be 109, good grief. Glad we belong to a gym as I will NOT be exercising outside today.........

Have a good day everyone.

Thanks Diana. Like you love cruising. Have old school girlfriend cruising with me
so I don't have to pay double this time.

Yes your weather has been hot. We're only in the 90's. Glad you have a timer
and that you met good neighbors that will water.

When are you leaving for Alaska Cruise? Can you believe we
are each going to be a year older soon!

By the skin of my teeth...


Off to Honolulu tomorrow and made goal -1!

Company Training went well. All the equipment in the fitness room at the hotel was broken, so wound up grabbing a dumbbell and walking the area - but man, humidity - you all can keep it! Heck of a time trying to get enough water down.

Been eating good still, not too many cravings, and the best part:


I'm back to the last loop on my belt, lol .

I can't imagine how cool it would be to take a cruise like yours Belle, that sounds so awesome.

Welp, probably won't be back until next week, but glad to hear everyone's stories and challenges and successes.

See ya'!
