Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Hope everyone did well this week.

 

Valentine's Day tomorrow. No candy in our house...….

 

I stayed the same, wah wah.

Thanks Diana! Candy at work but have luckily avoided that. My folks were here on Monday night and of course brought me my favorite chocolates (they live near a Mennonite/Amish shop that has wonderful goodies)! I have avoided those as well. 

 

I stayed the same but just started my new plan on Monday so wasn't expecting any real change. Hopefully, next week when my body has had time to adjust there will be change.

 

Wishing everyone a wonderful week,

Jenny

Thanks for starting us Diana!  At least you and Jenny maintained (great job with the discipline Jenny) - unfortunately I had a small gain of 1.4# 😡

 

I probably underestimated calories when we had our soup & salad night Sunday and yesterday was a heavy day with DS birthday.  I'm trying not to get discouraged and instead learn from last weeks mistakes and get back on track. 

 

This weeks stats:

Start: 208.6 (1/9/20) This week: 206.6

Goal 5/14 (next cruise): 20# loss - 18# remaining

Goal 10/22 (just after 25th anniversary): another 25# loss

Goal end of year: finish weight of 155#

 

Really need to see a loss next week 😞

Good morning everyone! Thanks for getting us started Diana. Good job on no gain. Same for you Jenny, and avoiding the goodies. Sorry to hear of your gain pacruise - hopefully your will be back on track next week. Seeing your goals like that is a good inspiration. 🙂

 

I am down .2. Not much but I'll take it. No candy in my house either. Or treats. We are doing better so far with healthy eating. Thanks to everyone for their kind words regarding DH. He was diagnosed as borderline diabetic, overweight and has a fatty liver so he needs to lose weight, cut out sugar and treats and all should be well again. So far so good.

Hi all ..... Sorry for gain pacruise ... Robin I would take the .2 ... congratulations! 

 

All the rest of us are "stay the samers" .... which isn't too bad .... I will take it.  I really thought I would gain this week as I discovered there were mini hershey bars in the freezer from Halloween.  I ate 5 ... they are now all gone.  Time to get serious about being healthy!

 

Good luck to all this week.  Jan

congrats to those who have stayed the same and have had to deal with candy being around and being able to stay away.

 

Good for those who have started over.  Congrats on choosing to get back on track.

 

This week I am down 1.4.

Jenny and Jan, staying the same is ok. 

 

Pacruise, sorry for the gain.

 

Robin, glad you had a loss. Small but in the right direction.

 

Hubby is taking me out tonight for chicken tacos. Not too horrible calories/fat wise...….

Happy Valentines Day everyone ❤️ I hope you all feel very loved even if you can't be with your loved one.

 

Tonight I'm making pasta carbonara for my guys, so I'll have to be sure to have a big salad too and keep my portion small.  Lots of walking this week, strength training Wednesday and another session tomorrow.

 

The sun is finally shining today even if the temperatures are a lot colder 🙂

Today I came downstairs to my computer and found a lovely homemade card from DH ... So sweet!.  Jan

Happy Valentine's Day.

 

Pacruise, your dinner sounds scrumptious.

 

Hubby is making me a pasta dish with shrimp for dinner, broccoli on the side. 

 

Jan, what a nice surprise from your hubby. Awww.

 

Have a nice evening everyone.

 

Diana

Hi all! We just got back into town this afternoon so I don't have an "official" post cruise number yet. I did step on the scale before dinner, and I think I'll be pleased...well as pleased as I can be after eating out for 11 days! We kept the party going and ordered pizza for dinner, but the grocery list is started and it's back to being good tomorrow! I'll check back in the morning once I weigh myself.

I gained 3.2 pounds over our vacation. Not too bad considering how long we were gone and the pizza last night! Today it's back to low carb and transitioning back to intermittent fasting.

Hope everyone had a good valentine day, sounds like any indulgences weren’t too crazy, so that’s great. We’ve still got Christmas candy sitting around, so no need for more here, though I did splurge on a piece of chocolate cake. 🤷🏻‍♀️
 

Congrats to those who lost and maintained, but also a shout out to those who are still here posting when the scale isn’t cooperating. We all know that’s the hard part, but we also know it won’t be that way forever, so keep keeping on. 

 

I finally broke through losing the same few pounds over and over this year and had a 2.2 loss for the week. Trying to stay focused. Got a short girls’ weekend in about a month and I’d like to drop another 3.5 by then if possible. We’ll see how diligent I can be about my working out!

 

Have a great week!

Wishing all a good weigh-in.

Belle, thanks for your post.

 

Glad you're having a good time even though the Casino is not cooperating.

 

Happy cruising...…..

Feeling like the weight loss/gain scenario just isn't fair! How can I gain 2 lbs from one weekend of travelling, but not lose 2 lbs. in one weekend? 🙃 We took a trip to Memphis and thoroughly enjoyed Beale Street. Obviously, too much when I stepped on the scale Monday morning! Back on track and hoping those 2 lbs fall off as quickly as they went on. (but not holding my breath on that!)

Mommyof3, I feel your pain. Hopefully your small gain will come off soon.

 

Hope everyone is having a good week. I certainly hope to post a loss on Thursday but at least I don't want to gain. I tried on some "cruise clothes" and everything is fitting a little looser. That's great. Cruise time for me in about 3 weeks. 

 

Have a good evening. Diana

I think I posted in the 'wrong' section -- I was reading the Thursday 1/20/20 Weigh-In post, and replied there -- but probably should have put it here, so am re-posting (since I couldn't figure out how to move my post . . .

 

Hello!  I'm definitely a latecomer to the group, but would love to join.  I'm really impressed by the caring support you show each other.  We are heading out on a 21-day cruise in April through the Panama Canal on Norwegian Bliss (NYC-Seattle), and I've been working on establishing good habits (and losing some pounds as well).  I noticed that at least one of you mentioned Noom -- I'm a recent convert to it, and am really happy with it.  I find its focus on dividing foods up into groups based on calorie density really works for me.  I tried Ideal Protein about 3 years ago, and although I lost lots of weight (almost 55 pounds) in about 7 months, my kidneys didn't like it (dips in kidney function) and I gained it all back -- with a vengeance.  I also like the support structure Noom provides -- a combination of psychology, science, and sociology, as they say.  

 

My goals:

Weight when I started with Noom (Jan 28): 217

Current weight: 211

Goal #1 (start of cruise is April 19): 199

Goal #2 (end of cruise is May 10): 195 (being realistic -- I won't have access to Noom continuously throughout the cruise, and will have lots of temptation -- of course, I'll be doing LOTS of walking, and LOTS of stairs!)

Goal #3 (64th birthday is in August): 180

 

Exercise Goals: 

Go to Gold's Gym at least 3x / week for water aerobics and swimming, my cardio and arms workout routine, or some other hour-long activity

Walk at least 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week

Walk 18 holes of golf (hilly course!) at least once a week starting in March -- substitute walking around the Bliss in April and May!

 

Diana (too!)
