April 8th Weigh-In!


Recommended Posts

Good morning! How's everyone doing this week?


Personally, I gained a pound. Grrrrr! icon_mad.gif That's what happens when I'm on Spring Break with not enough exercise.


I hope that you all had a loss or stay-the-same week. Don't let the Easter candy get in your way of maintaining your weight this weekend.

Good Morning all! I'm a stay-the-samer this week. The closer I get to goal the slower it comes off.

Hope you all enjoy a great holiday weekend. icon_smile.gif

I'm also a stay the samer. Which doesn't surprise me cause I did not have a great week. But at least I did not gain (sorry Cathy) and I'm back on program.


Have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone! I am down 1.5 lbs this week. icon_biggrin.gif I only have about 10 lbs left until my goal. I would like to get off 15 more just to have some playing room, but I'm not gonna push it. icon_smile.gif


I called my MIL yesterday and begged her NOT to bake anything chocolate for our Easter dinner. She is a gourmet cook and she knows how much I love chocolate. I searched the internet yesterday for SBD friendly recipes that I could make and take with me. I found a great one for key lime pie. So, I'm going to make that and a wild rice dish that will go with her turkey and veggies.


Good luck to all on your weigh-ins.

Congrats to all the losers.To the gainers and stay-the-samers...better luck to us next week! I'm a stay-the-samer...but it is a high number...too high for comfort. Believe me, the matzo is a killer! We'll be eating leftovers all week...I made so much food. I'll try not to gain. If I'm lucky I may lose a pound by next Thurs.


Have a great day,all! (It's still cold here..with the wind chill factor, it is only in the 20's F.)

Good Morning All,

I'm down another pound. Now I feel llike I have some breathing room for the cruise. I have 10 days till cruising time. This cruise weight gain thing is driving me crazy. Does my concept of losing to gain make any sense? I'm now 8 pounds under my goal weight. So my clothes are big. How long will it take on the cruise for my clothes to fit? My Mother thinks I'm nuts, she says that with all the exercise I do, I'm not going to gain that much. I just think I will. When I get home from the cruise I have 4 days to get back into the grove, and then I head out to South Beach for one of my husband's conventions. So again, clothes have to fit 4 days after crusing. Easter dinner is at my house, and it will not be my downfall. I keep repeating this to myself. I haven't bought any Easter candy, because I know my weakness. The whole family may have to go chocolate and licorice jelly bean free this year.

Congrats to the losers, stay the samers and gainers, keep on plugging away. Remember the scale is only part of story. Inches count the most!

Happy Easter Everyone. Let's be good to ourselves.

I am down 1/2 lb. Not much, but I will take it.


Mari...I understand what you are saying. I also think that I would like to be about 5 lbs. under when I cruise, so that a gain won't hurt too much.


Congrats to all the losers and stay-the-samers and good luck to any gaingers....next week will be a better week for you.


Happy Easter everyone!

Your concept is right on in my book Marie. This is my last day here before cruise with DD. I fly out tomorrow. I lost 4 pounds the first week, found 3.5 the second net loss .5. Lost 5.5 this week net lost from start, six pounds. So I met my goal for the cruise, now. I have the rest of the pledge to loss what I gain next weekicon_smile.gif

It sounds like everyone is doing great! Hang in there if you stayed the same or gained! I make my kid's take their baskets to their room so it is less tempting. I will buy myself some Russell Stover (low carb) candy to have in case I get tempted, I'll grab it instead. Easter dinner shouldn't be to bad since my sister and sister-in-law are doing L.A. Weight Loss.


I am down 3 1/2 lbs. this week! I'm off to Curves now.


Have a great week everyone and Happy Easter!

Have a wonderful cruise, enjoy every minute, and especially the food. You've done great! We both know the pounds will come off again.

I'll be gone when you get back, but I'll read your threads when I return.

Have Fun,

Well, I'm not doing well. Two weeks ago I gained 2 lbs. Then I lost it, now I found that plus 1 more lb. Ugh!!! Up down, up down.


I think too much eating out, we've had dinner out 3 times in 6 days, that's unusual for us. I think too much salty stuff too.


I was hoping to be down a few lbs. by the 21st when DH will be taking a trip to Arizona. If I can just get this 3 lbs. off that will be good.


Good luck to everyone.

Down 2 pounds this week!


Mari - Quite frankly, I'm doing the same thing. Trying to get below my goal weight in order to enjoy the cruise food. We'll see if that happens. I'm really only 4 pounds away from my goal weight, however, I have a 4 day school field trip coming up in a week and I know that it will be filled with fast food junk (6th graders you know). So I am allowing a little for that.


Congratulations to all the losers and stay-the-samers. To the gainers, just keep on keeping on. I have faith in you!

Mari, I'm with you. I'm trying to lose 5 lbs below my goal weight so I can gain on my cruise and another vacation in July. However, I don't think I'm going to make that goal. icon_frown.gif

Hi Everyone,


Congrats to all the losers. I am a stay the samer but I guess I am lucky as I cheated on the weekend but have good since.


Happy Easter everyone and stay away from the candy. At least don't go crazy.


Have a good day and weekend.
