Hey now, don't get frustrated. What did you say to me when I was upset the scale wasn't moving? You said to keep at it and it will move. Remember??

You may be gaining muscle - which will help you in the long run. So hang in there. Keep doing what you're doing and you WILL see results. Sometimes it just takes a little longer. Besides, you have 21 more days this month to take off the other 4.5 pounds you want to lose. That's a good pace. Now keep going!!!

Believe it or not a 1/2 pound is perfect! And here's why,

"The National Institute of Health (NIH) guidelines advice setting weight loss targets of no more than 10% of body weight every 6 months. For most people, that means losing less than a pound per week.

NIH experts also believe that a slow and gradual weight loss approach is not only safer, but also more likely to lead to long-term weight loss.

When it comes to weight loss, slow and steady definitely seems to be the best way to win the weight loss race."

AND there's this girl in my WW meeting who has lost over 100 pounds (I think she's at like 107 or something). Anyway they calculated what that meant only weekly weight loss and it came out to 0.75 lbs. a week. And now she's almost at her goal weight!

I feel like I should be losing faster as well. I am NOT a patient person. lol. But while the scale isn't moving that much, the pants I put on this morning aren't tight like the last time I put them on. thewave.gif
Hopefully, that thought will keep me from stress eating for the next couple days. I am off to Chicago today for about 5 weeks and I am stressing about the work and being away from FI for all that time. All I want is comfort food!

Thanks for the support ladies :) I've just been down about this today. I still stuck to my diet and went to the gym, but am feeling a little defeated. I worked my butt off this past week, and it wasn't what I expected to see. New week, will try to get a new attitude, and next week's weight will be better :)

Ok ladies, I missed crunches yesterday, so I did them tonight. I got in 100oz of water and did 45 minutes on the treadmill which burned 495 calories. I love these challenges!

 

Keep up the great work ladies!

WOW Jill, good work!!!

 

I'm babysitting an infant tonight, so I plan to do my leg lifts while little Stewart is getting in his tummy time.

 

I didn't get a chance to do TammyB's lunges last night so I'll do those tonight as well as any other exercise she posts today.

 

Come on ladies, keep up the good work. We're all doing sooo well!!!!

I will try to get my leg lifts in after cardio today - I may use the machine at the gym though - the inner and outer thigh ones. I'm going to be out on any lunge/squat exercise... I hurt my knee earlier in the summer and that is the exact motion that makes it hurt. 24oz water so far for the day... :)

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
