Thanks, Jill!

 

So I went to my WW meeting and weighed in. I lost 0.4 pounds this week but just like everyone else was saying earlier I really thought I would lose more! BUT then I thought of it this way. IF I continued to lose 0.5 pounds per week that means I would be 3 pounds lighter by my HS reunion and at goal weight in 5 months. It sounds like a lot BUT I have been struggling to lose weight my whole LIFE - so what the hell is 5 months? Not that much time really...

 

I'm trying to be positive!

Keep thinking positively! It also takes several weeks for your body to react to significant changes in diet, exercise, etc. So some people lose weight immediately and then Week 3 or 4 tapers, and vice versa.

Honestly, the My Pet Fat thread really helps me visualize it. If you look at that 1lb replica, you lost half of that in just 7 days. That's pretty amazing in my opinion! I know yall are going to get sick of me posting it, but it really helps put it all in perspective! Here's the link to the website again, I love it. Wake up to it every morning! Scroll down to the 1lb and look at it...GROSS! http://www.mypetfat.com/thetools.asp

And think of it in other ways. How do you feel about yourself? How has your mood been lately? Do you have a bit more bounce in your step? Etc! Also, what helps me is to take my measurements and log on mybodycomp.com and that tracks body fat %, inches, etc so even if that scale isn't moving as quickly as I would like, I can see that I've lost 3" off my waist, etc.

Keep it up! Eventually your body will have to give it up if you're watching calories and exercising!

I went to the gym tonight! the perks of working out of town and living in a hotel-free gym access.

I did 30 min on the eliptical to make up for missing it yesterday and I did the leg lifts.humble.gif

I don't always get 64oz of water but I am still drinking more than i usually do. And no diet coke for 3 days!!! the funny thing is, I had one in my hand today and it actually didn't sound good. I put it back in the fridge.smile29.gif

Great job Jen! i can't believe you already got in both your 30 minutes from yesterday! I wish I could say the same for those fattening oatmeal mini-cookies I just ate ... again if I had only read the back of the panel BEFORE I ate them!

Did my leg lifts last night and 50 lunges (25 each leg) from TammyB's daily challenge the other day. I've been watching my calories very carefully and I'm 10 days Diet Coke free. I do feel less bloated. But the scale isn't really moving. Since losing those 8 pounds on Nutrisystem I've been consistantly going up and down 2 pounds. As of this morning, I'm officially back to the 8 pound loss. Nothing additional. But I feel like my clothes fit better and I do feel healthier. So somethings happening.

 

I had a busy week so I only used my treadmill twice, but I do plan on using it at least 5 times this coming week.

 

Brendan and I are going to Benihana tonight so I need to be really careful with what I choose for dinner. All that soy sauce really bloats you.

Um ladies, my butt is sore. I can't tell if it's from the lunges or the left lifts. Everytime I sit down, the muscles in my butt feel sore. Don't laugh at me.

Hmmm... maybe it's the combo of the two! It depends how you did your leg lifts. If you kept your foot parellel to the floor then you're using your gluts - if you have your toes pointing at the ceiling then you work your quads...

When I was laying on my right side, my right leg was slightly bent and my left leg (the one doing the lifting) was also slightly bent and I think the foot was parallel to the floor. I didn't point my toes at the ceiling. I know my body, if it's hurting me this much today, tomorrow is going to be worse. Oh boy!!!

Brendan's philosophy is that if it's hurting, that means it's working. He's crazy!!!!

As much as I hate being sore, its definitely a good thing Jen! I tried a new exercise at the gym today - Tea Kettles - and my obliques and lats are killing me! Its good though... hopefully I will soon have a waist again!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
