    So I did great all day eating-wise. I passed on the doughnuts & italian sausages at my friends garden centre grand opening... I had Subway for lunch... and then I ended up bbqing a sirloin burger for dinner... as much as it's not a take-out burger or anything, but it made me feel so gross!

      I did so awful with the baby shower food. I just couldn't resist the spinach dip and the pasta salads, the cake, the list just goes on and on.

      But i'm going to try to work my ass off tomorrow to try to make up a little for it. I ate so much i feel like a cow.

          I know it's too late for season 2, but do we have an idea of when season 4 will be coming...I should have got on this while I had the chance because that would have really helped me before the wedding...ah well, better late than never.

            This season is 8 weeks long and I believe between season 1 and 2 there was a week break (is that right season 1 folks?) so would you be up for season 3 in 8 weeks or so? or are you shooting for season 4? I think I will be doing 2, 3, and 4 to get me to the big day!! Yeah for BDW Biggest Loser!!

              How is everyone doing this weekend. I see a few posts about parties. It's so tough to be good in that situation so don't beat yourself up - just start again as soon as you leave that environment.

              I've been doing really well this weekend and usually eating is my downfall, especially on the weekends. I also bumped up my workout yesterday. I'm really excited - this is the motivation I needed. Thanks everyone!

              Happy Mother's day to all the mothers (and soon-to-be moms) out there!

                Glenda, there are actually a lot of healthy Thai options. Generally stay away from stuff with heavy sauces. However, things like chicken satay, which usually has curry seasoning on it and comes with a peanut dipping sauce is okay for you if you dont slather it all up in the sauce. Also you may have to shop around to find the right Thai restaurant, but for example the place i go has gyoza that are only very very lightly pan fried (with hardly any oil at all, trust me i am psycho and asked). when i order from there, and they now know what i order as soon as i say my name, but they just brush the pan lightly with canola oil when they cook my gyoza. the other great option is edamame. its protein, takes a bit longer to eat since you have to break open the shells. sometimes i put just a smidge of low sodium soy sauce on it to flavor it up a bit when i get bored. so my point is, if you DO cave and eat thai, make smarter decisions about what to order. you will be much happier afterwards!

                i think for anyone who found this thread late and wants to participate... i would really encourage you to still do it as if you were participating, you just cant win the money is all. we can still be your support group. so dont put it off for another 8 weeks when you can start being healthy this week. its all about your mindset ladies.

                kash, i LOVE the WW quotes you posted from your leader. thanks for those!

                  Oh my goodness this has been craziest week at work! I hardly slept at all and hardly ate either! And not by choice - just because I've been running around like an idiot! I stopped at a gas station on Friday and bought a snackpack of Pringles and a (*real* - gasp!) Coke and that's all I had in my mouth ALL DAY!! Granted, that low of a calorie intake has made me happy with the number on the scale, but that is not healthy!

                  On the upside, I've been drinking a ton of water, so that's good. And I also did my Pilates Jump class Saturday morning and it is honestly the best workout I have ever, ever, had. I used to be an athlete, and I have never come out of a workout as exhausted as I do from the Pilates Jump classes. They mix Pilates with Cardio and it doesn't even look like you're doing anything, but I swear every single muscle in my body is so sore! It's crazy!! I could hardly walk to the car!

                  This week I'm working remotely which means I'm here with FI and everything will be better. He's an excellent and healthy cook, and he's trying to lose too, so I think this week will be much healthier for me!

                  Oh - sorry I'm late to post about this, but about taking pictures on the scales...I travel for work and won't be able to weigh in on the same scale every week, so I'm just going to make sure my first and last weigh in are on the same scale...but the one I did my initial weigh in on....I don't know how to describe this...but you step on the scale on the floor, but the scale reader is raised so it's right in front of your face. I think it's for older people who can't bend over to see the number.

                  And I'm not sure if anyone posted this as a tip, but get enough sleep! When you don't have enough sleep, you're body starts craving all sorts of bad things (like sugar!). If you have a healthy sleep pattern, you'll have much more control of your cravings. Easier said than done, I know!

                  OH - and I agree with Glenda (I think that's who said it ) about ramping up the cardio first. Personally, my psyche needs to see the numbers going down until I'm happy with my size and feel good in my clothes. Then I'm okay with the number going up after I'm fitting in clothes the right way. So, I ramp up on cardio and pilates and then add in weights later too. But I have never heard a trainer recommend this; in fact, they usually say the opposite. But if I add weights in too early, my quadriceps start growing and all of my pants are tight in the thighs and it freaks me out and I quit. Plan for today is 45min of cardio on the elliptical at the gym! No weights for me yet!

                  Good luck to everyone this weekend! It sounds like everyone is doing great! Stick with it! Hugs!
