@Wafflesmom @yycbride2016 @calgarybride2015 Thank you :) Had a treat, won't let it discourage me. More motivated than ever right now!

You're all doing so great! Thanks for being so supportive!


I'm more motivated then ever too!! Kids welcome back to school BBQ tonight. Even though I was starving I declined and had a small meal at home!

I have been watching this thread since it started and it motivated me to get back on track, so I figured I should finally contribute to it.

 

A few years ago, I was able to lose 50 pounds with healthy eating and exercise. Fortunately, I have kept it off, but could still stand to lose another 15-20 pounds. When I got engaged in November 2014, I expected to use the 18 months before my wedding to slowly lose the weight. Well, now it is September 2015 and I weigh the same as I did in November. I will lose 5 pounds, then go on a vacation and regain it, then lose it again and repeat with the next vacation. In the past 2 weeks, I have made sure to track my calories daily with My Fitness Pal (longest streak in years) and gone to the gym 3-4 times a week. I am proud to announce that I have already lost 3 pounds! Now, my next vacation is in 3 weeks, so I am going to work harder during it to not regain all the weight I have lost by then.

 

For this week, my goal is to go to the gym 4 times. On the days I don’t go to the gym, I plan to do a 5 minute ab workout and 10 minute resistance band workout at home. I will continue to track my calories and aim to stay within my recommended calories.

 

Thank you for starting this thread and keep up all the great work ladies!!

@cruisebride2016 welcome to the group and congrats on those first 3 lbs! I think your head is in the right place now and you sound very motivated and driven to keep working at your goals. You've got time and support so you can crush this! Good luck with your holiday. It is never easy but with the right choices you can maintain!

I have to confess my weekend was a train-wreak! I did workout both Saturday and Sunday. But my new program left me so sore that I didn't workout on Monday. I will probably have to do a double workout tonight. But the worst part was my eating. I was mostly good on sat and sun but yesterday was BAD! I made my fiancé a celebratory brunch of French toast and bacon for finishing our new fireplace build. That celebration seemed to last all day right to the chips we ate while watching the finale of bachelor in paradise. I'm really ashamed that I had done so good for almost 3 weeks and lost 5lbs, and now I won't step on the scale on fear I ruined my hard work this weekend . Time to step back up to the plate and get back on track with nutrition and exercise. Today is a new day.

@yycbride2016

 

Don't let that get you down. You worked out hard - obviously because your body was sore!!!  I bet if you get back on track today that you won't even notice anything on the scale. I really do believe that!!  With all that exercise you gave yourself some wiggle room :)     Days of rest are def good to repair the muscle.. hahah I love the 'omg I can't sit down to pee' feeling :)

 

I didn't work out this weekend, I suck I know! hahah!  Great intentions.  I did get up and get the DVD in the player yesterday AM as the gym was closed, but it wasn't hooked up since we moved ha!   I am committing to 2 times this week (Thursday and Friday) due to my work schedule.

 

I also had a small blip on Saturday - too much beer!  The story of my life, but I did get on the scale this AM and was down a little so I  know the slip didn't give me a gain.

 

I kind of wish I knew what I was right after Vegas because I have no idea what I have lost!!!  But I will use my weight now as a starting point and I still have the 20lbs to go.  I am losing small amounts and I know once I get myself back into the gym it will be easier!!

 

Have a great week ladies!

@calgarybride2015 thanks for the support! I think I needed to hear that. I find my will power is always weak when my FI is weak. I will get back on track today and stay away from the scale haha.

Well done on attempting to workout. At least the thought and intention was there. That's always a good start! I know you can do it. You set a very reasonable goal for the week!

@perianjay haha I know, thank goodness it's over for a while

Hahaha I agree. I told the husband I needed him to come to push me out of bed (kids are away and was easy to sleep in) soooo you see how far that got me. I used to be so disciplined but I'm getting back there. Nothing I mean nothing used to get in my way. Then I met a man :)

@yycbride2016 you have been so good, do not let a weekend get you down. Like @calgarybride2015 said, you've been working out so much that I hardly doubt a weekend would cancel it all out. Just consider the last weekend d as even more motivation to get you going!

And @calgarybride2015 I had a bad weekend too. Camping meant too many roasted marshmallows, chips and a whole lot of drinking. My body is not happy with me right now, I haven't been able to retain anything in the last two days.

@cruisebride2016  Welcome!  So glad we have inspired you to join the group!  Keep up the good work :)

 

@yycbride2016 I know you feel guilty, I did after my goldfish/crisper party last week.  But this feeling is what will push you even harder.  Don't give up, I see your instagram - you're doing awesome!

 

@Wafflesmom @calgarybride2015 Like you ladies told me after my binge... it's a new day!  We all have our moments, but you're stronger than you think!  Keep it going!

 

I've had the flu since Thursday night, so I'm completely off track... I have maybe lost a couple lbs but it's only due to not eating, I haven't weighed myself because I don't have the energy to stand long.  I had to cancel my ribfest shifts this weekend (aka wedding money) and feel so awful.  It's still lingering now... hoping that sitting at my desk for 8 hours will knock me out when I get home and I can finally sleep through the night.

@deecol thanks so much for the encouragement. Hard to forget the binge when I'm still feeling gross. Tummy is still very upset with me lol

I'm so sorry to hear you've been so sick. I hope you get well soon. It's definitely not fun getting the flu. Take care of yourself and drink plenty of liquids xoxo
