    ME TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I was an XL - Gotta push dat water today though or I'm going to be in a world of hurt tomorrow LMAO

    I haven't bothered to go shopping yet because I'll probs drop one more size down by the time I'm done - but I'm thinking VERY soon my Ultimate Goal Jeans should fit :love:

    That is a great NSV Steph. The 140's are just around the corner. Looking at the way things are going, you will definitely be through the 140's by the end of our challenge. You are totally killing it! WAY TO GO!!!

    Here's hoping! The last few pounds seem to be the hardest to budge! Plus I'm easing back into a regular schedule this week so the big losses won't start back up until next week more than likely - but we're getting there!

    Happy Thursday Guys!

    Went to the Dr this morning and stayed EXACTLY the same - 152.6

    To be fair, I really sucked at water again yesterday but NOT FOR LACK OF TRYING! I literally was so busy at work that the only time I could step away to text Ced to check on the kitten I had to do so WHILE MY PHONE WAS RINGING...that's literally how busy I was *sigh*

    Speaking of which - Dr's appt this morning because the anxiety is starting to become crippling. It's making it hard to do even the simplest tasks. For instance, even the idea of getting in the shower and getting ready for work seems overwhelming...it's not very fun at all :cry: I'm hoping once the work situation get's ironed out (hopefully right at EOM) the anxiety will calm down, because right now I can't even sleep. I SLEEP but my brain doesn't stop working...it's hella uncomfortable and it's making it hard to focus during the day *grumps*. Anywho, my sister takes this fancy anti-anx med called Atarax...she let me try it and it works wonders so she was all about putting me on it. She put me on a higher dosage b/c it's SO bad right now but mine is always situational not constant so that makes sense.

    In related news, Dr. Julia said no extended fasting right now...she doesn't even really want me OMADing. She said the amount of stress that the situation, being sick, and the anxiety is putting on my body means ABSOLUTELY no fasting *sigh* - so I'm just going to eat intuitively and log and weigh until they give me the thumbs up to go back on my schedule. On the bright side, she was very impressed with my losses (about 25 pounds since I last saw her in maybe Feb/Mar?).

    Sorry for the novel kids but lots happened today already LOL

    Hello Steph,

    I am sorry to hear of your anxiety issues. I pray all gets ironed out real soon. Maybe you could do a 12:12 (8am - 8pm) or a 16:8 (11am - 7pm) eating schedule until you are cleared for OMAD again.

    Yeah 16:8 is what I default to if I'm paying no attention to it at all - I'll still monitor my calories, but TBH the anxiety has been so unbearable that I'd rather now stress out my body in any way. I'm still sticking with my normal calorie range (like 1200-2000 depending on the day) so realistically I should still be losing...but if I don't I'll just call it maintenance practice LOL

    Hugs Steph <3 sorry you are dealing with this and hoping it gets better soon!! You do what you need to do to get healthy you have done incredible and are so close now ---taking a little extra time to get there will not mean anything in the long run!! You got this! :p

    Yeah actually speaking to Cedric at lunch, I'm actually pretty sure I AM done - at this point I think adding in some toning when my Dr says it's ok is my next step...it would appear that 150ish is my ideal weight. I might lose a few pounds during the toning process but TBH I think my body (and my loved ones) are telling me that there's no more to safely lose without toning...we're going to play it by ear for now.
  • LadyBlanksLadyBlanks Posts: 453Member, Premium Member Posts: 453Member, Premium Member
    You are at a good weight and I believe the toning may be all that you need. Definitely don't stress it and ease into the toning. Wishing you well in maintenance. You've got this.
  • volgirl1322volgirl1322 Posts: 943Member Member Posts: 943Member Member
    I am so proud of you girl ---that is fantabulous!!! Maintenance is going to be awesome for you......would love to join you there before too long :)

  • mistymeadows2005mistymeadows2005 Posts: 2,413Member Member Posts: 2,413Member Member
    I think so too :) It feels very odd (and weirdly scary?) to be "done" with the losing portion - toning will take more will power for me so a new adventure I suppose LOL
  • jadepearljadepearl Posts: 707Member Member Posts: 707Member Member
    So sorry to hear about your stress and anxiety❤️❤️ Sending over lots of virtual hugs❤️❤️❤️ May be through toning, you will get that body shape that you want👍 As you said, loosing inches and fitting into smaller clothes totally rocks too👍👌❤️😘

    Morning kids!

    My posts will be a little less structured as I'm easing into maintenance - saw a little uptick on the scale this morning due to pasta for dinner last night. 153 and change (used my home scale which isn't all that accurate).

    I love Fridays - the team brought in Lebanese savory pies this morning, we have a team lunch, and then I'm going to my parents for Father's Day dinner tonight - looks like 3 meals today LOL.

    SO MUCH to do tomorrow - gotta go the post office, grocery store, get a new phone, work on contracts for work...SO MUCH TO DO! But mostly fun and/or exciting stuff :)

    I'll update throughout the day with ma' foods.

    Meal 1 - Middle Eastern cheese pie...I only ate about half but it was yummy :)
