Okay...now that I just finished reading all the posts from earlier on the other page, maybe i will be able to go to sleep! But I have to tell ya....those reads were so good! This IS a GREAT group of people!
I managed to make it through the day staying on track. I think I will see a drop tomorrow morning...or should I say later this morning...lol. I can feel it in my hands. Sometimes it works that way....know what I mean?
Houdini...thanks for the encouragement lady!
Froggie...think about how good you feel when YOU are in control and not your apetite.
AP...as always, you are a wonder!
I think I need to make a list of everyone's names. I forget who said what by the time I reply. (it's a senior thing )
Good morning! It's a new day, and we're all gonna do great with our food intake & exercise today, right? RIGHT! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_up.gif I've lost the 1.5 pounds I gained over the weekend, so I'm starting the day in a great mood. Hope it lasts!

I have the same problem sometimes, so what I do is open this website on two different Explorer windows. That way I can have a message open on one window so I can read it, while I'm typing my reply in the other window. Hope this isn't too confusing. Maybe there's an easier way, but I haven't found it yet!
Have a great day, everyone!

This is going to be a great day. My scales are showing 2 lbs. down...finally getting rid of some of that fried chicken from the 2 weeks of family love and food! I wont' get too excited just yet though.
I'm doing great and I'm on day 3 using fitday. I love being able to see the total calories, etc. Its amazing to me, exactly how fast those calories add up, especially when you don't think they are. Food is food and it all COUNTS (I have to keep http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/hammer.gif that into my head!) I'm not drinking water like I should, but I'm working on that issue.......
I'm going to work out at the gym again today. I did the cross-trainer and some weights yesterday and whewwwwwwww....that cross-trainer has several different modes you can set and I tried them all. It also tried me I'm a little sore, but not TOO bad... what is that saying: "NO PAIN, NO GAIN http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif
I wanted to respond to the "forgetting the names thing". When you're typing your reply, if you scroll down the page a bit, there is another box (under the "Submit Reply" and "Clear Fields" buttons) that you can scroll. Grab the scroll in that window and scroll down and you can read the entire thread without another window.
Whirl, you're going to love fitday. It is awesome!!
Well I'm feeling really good today. My pants are feeling very loose. If I don't put a belt on, the pants sink low enough where the cuffs start to drag along the floor. Also, I checked my body fat and it's down to 12.3% which is the lowest it's ever been. By my calculations, of the weight that I've lost in the last 4 and 1/2 months, less than a pound of it was muscle. I guess that means I might've gained some muscle to offset the muscle I was losing. If that's the case, then I don't mind that my weight is higher than it was last week. My belly does not seem to be getting smaller though. The mirror makes it look like I still have 10 extra pounds. Hopefully by the end of summer, it'll be gone.
Congratulations, Donuts!!!!!! That's REALLY low fat %! I am not sure exactly what guys are supposed to be, but that seems low- awesome!!
Whirl- good job on the 2 lb loss!!
Yellowrose- I have been wondering about you- hope everything works out okay- I know that waiting can be as bad as the actual problem itself.
I am doing better on the motivation thing- I was good yesterday and have been good today ... but it's only 9:20 am!!
I found a cereal that is low in carbs (for cereal)- it has 21 g (I think) per 1/2 cup. Of course, I can't remember the name of it, but it's organic. It tastes pretty good if you put berries on it.
Can't wait to loose 4 more pounds and get my nails done!! If I could get rid of this sore throat (I have spots on my tonsils now...) I would feel like working out. I barely walked yesterday, but today I plan to go to aerobics if I feel okay.
Whirl 2 pds down also.Stick with fitday when I read Linda's post about fitday and I went to the site I have been on it ever since.
Lisa Good Luck about hubby.Stand your ground. under your goal weight,you go girl!!!!
Coffee Congrats on all the body fat you have lost and for doing a great job the last 4 and 1/2 months.Ya know sometimes I think mirrors do not like to see a change,I think they are evil lol.
I know what I am about to say sounds so stupid but with the weight I have lost some days I feel like I dont look any different then if I had not lost any weight.When I look in the mirror I swear I still have days where I feel like a big bloated mushroom.They are evil I say. LoL
Maybe its a blonde thing I have going.Then I think oh lord what did I look like with all the weight I just lost..
I hope everyone has a good day,tomorrow will be my weekly weigh in.Fingers crossed.Check back later.

I don't think it sounds stupid. I look at myself in the mirror and see the same person I saw 4.5 months ago. If it weren't for the scale and seeing how my clothes fit differently, I'd never know I lost weight. That's the problem with seeing yourself everyday. You don't notice changes. The real test is finding someone who hasn't seen you in a long time.
I can relate to feeling different on different days! I went to Walmart yesterday and decided to try on some jean shorts. Although I'm in a smaller size than before---I looked in the mirror and about fell over. I thought I looked huge! Maybe it's because the fitting rooms are so small that your butt can touch the seat while you're nose touches the mirror!LOL Anyway, when leaving-the attendant asked me if everything fit alright. I told her that they fit fine but they must return those mirrors to the Fun house immediately; I'm sure the circus could use them!!!LOL
Well, I'm still getting ready for our camping trip. Seems like a neverending job!!!! I haven't worked out yet but I intend to later.
Wow, they are calling for severe T-storms here this evening but it's getting awfully dark out now. The air changed too--this morning it was 74 and very humid. Now I can feel the breeze! I had better go I guess. I'll check back tomorrow! Good day to all!

Donuts, you're so right! There were several people at our party last weekend who I haven't seen in at least 5 or 6 months. Every one of them commented on my weight loss, but none of the people I see regularly seem to notice.
I also know what Dee is talking about as far as not feeling thinner some days. I'm having one of those days today - I looked in the mirror this morning and just seemed to look so bloated! But I never let it get me down, because I know I'll feel differently the next day. Sure is strange, though!
hey sm!!!!! give justin a big kiss for me dn there k? hehe
hi dp!!!!!! wassup gf?
hi to all! i endeed up sending an apologetic email to the dr.(i have a feelinhe was offended by whirls comment, he doesnt have a sense of humor.... i 4 got that) its the only reason i can think of that he read my email w/o replying. it shows he didnt read the apology yet, so im still waitin to see if i can go fri.

Jen have a great time on your trip.LoL at the circus mirrors.
AP I hope things work out for you soon, hang in they will.
Thanks to all of you for letting me I am not the only one that feels this way sometimes.Plus ya know most of us ladies are due for ~AF~ again next week...I think that has a lot to do with it.
