Just checking in with my weekly update. My weight hasn't moved. Guess that's better than going up! Good Luck to you all.

Any of my weight loss chicas still around???

MARCO???

*listens for a 'POLO'*

I'm doing pretty well. I was hitting the gym 5 days a week pretty regualrly until I got sick then I slacked off to 1-2 times a week. This week though I'm going to try to get back to my routine. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday :D

So far I've lost 5 lbs, not too shabby if I do say so myself.

I'm still here but I totally suck, lol. I can't seem to get off my butt. I can't wait til summer, I actually go outside for walks and bike rides.

I WILL TRY HARDER :oops:

Crunchy, 5 pounds is awesome, Congrats to you.

I think Sugarstar got a BFP so she probably won't be here anymore.

Get to it girlie! The only way to lose it is to move it! With that said, "hi pot, I'm kettle" I've totally been slacking and my depression isn't making matters any easier. I think I'm going to break away from the TTC thing for a while and just see what happens. The stress of it is really getting to me where I'm losing sleep at night and snapping at everyone in sight. February was a great cycle. I was away from the boards and didn't overanylize or stress anything. It felt great! I need to get that back again for my own sanity if anything.

I heard about Sugar but I'm not sure if I congratulated her yet. If she's reading this, Congrats and a happy healthy 9 months to ya mama to be! :)

Crunchy,

I totally understand the stress of all this. I love this website and I hate it. It's been really helpful and I've learned a lot but I've also learned too much and I read things that totally freak me out! Maybe I have this wrong or that wrong. Should I take this supp or that one? Sometimes too much info is not a good thing. I've also been thinking about taking a break from here, I did that last summer and I was much more peaceful.
Besides, if I have to have one more cycle of timed sex, I might go crazy!
So, if we don't post much here... Good Luck to you and Have Fun :D

Welcome!!

I too have a really hard time sticking with a plan but it does help when you have buddies. I usually only check in here once a week, don't like to weigh myself too often. I try to set weekly goals with diet and exercise, but I've been slacking.

So...this week I will not snack after dinner. That one is hard for me but I will do my best.

Thanks for joining us :D

Hello ladies! I would LOVE to join this support group. Do you have a certain you weigh in? I have lost 24 lbs so far and would like to lose more. I tried for over a year to lose weight (I have PCOS) before finding something that worked. I tried WW and half a dozed other diets. None of them worked. Then I found something a "program" locally and tried it. I dropped 24 lbs in 8 weeks. I have kept it all off, but haven't gotten back on the losing track since the holidays. I would love to offer and get encouragement, so I hope to hear from you all soon!

Hi there and welcome! Of course you can join :D

I usually weigh in on Thursdays. You can pick whatever day works best for you. We started out strong then kind of lost some steam. Hopefully with a few more ladies, we'll get going again.

My problem is evening snacking (love sweets!) and serious lack of exercise. I am working on it though.

CONGRATS to you on losing 24 pounds, that is awesome.

Check back in with any updates or just to tell us to keep it up.

Thanks for joining and good luck.

Wow, welcome to all our new arrivals :)

Lisa - Careful not to starve yourself. 1200 calories is very few when spread out over the course of a day especially if you aren't used to eating that way. If you get obsessed with counting calories, it can very easily lead to an eating disorder. I myself had to get over a form of bulimia where you forcably burn off every calorie you eat by over exercising. It worked but only temporarily. I stuck to it, and ate between 1000-1200 calories a day for about a year and lost 60 lbs! Now if only I can get back to having that type of discipline without the danger of starving my body of key nutrients. lol

Mama - Wow, congrats on your weightloss. Whats your secret??? Please fill us in ;)

Metal - How are you doing hun? I'm just getting back on track after my week of binging - dang hormones - I'm in the process of planning a yummy St. Patty's day feast for tomorrow though, nothing is low cal, low fat or off limits, wish me luck! So far I'm making corned beef hash, potato pancakes with sour cream and lima beans. Not sure what to make for dessert though. I might make guiness cupcakes with pistachio (green) icing or I might just serve the homemade spiced soda bread with apple butter for dessert and call it a day :)

Pixie - Just heard about your BFP, Congrats again. If you do decide to start exercising consider a gentle exercise like yoga just until you get into the groove of things. You don't want to over work you or your peanut.

weight watchers & spark people have me eating between 1000-1200 a day, I am a small framed 5'3. so that seems to be the right calories for me , & I dont feel like I am starving at all.
besides I am desperate to get a few pounds off before our Masquerade ball on the 28th!. :jump:

Welcome Lisa! Good Luck with your plan, there's lots of time before your ball so you should be able to lose a few. There's a website called Calorie Count (not sure of the exact name) and it lists almost every food out there and includes calories and all the nutrition info. I used it for a while a couple years ago and it really helped me keep track of what I was eating. I had a goal of 1400 cals/day and with that site was able to make it work. Maybe I should look into it again :oops: .

As for me, I have done well with no evening snacks, just a small dish of ice cream last night (but hey, AF found me so I figured it was justified :wink: )

Keep up the good work ladies, Good Luck!
