    OH, almost forgot!
    On to onederland, 13.8 pounds!

    Way to go! :)
    I've been fluctuating this week, so I've got 10.1 pounds to Onderland. We can totally do this, like Orphia said...slow and steady wins the race!

    Have a great evening!

    Hello all! Happy Friday to everyone. Today is my weigh in day. I am excited, as it is my biggest drop in a week. I lost 3.3! Exercised 6 days this week. Had a mini binge on wednesday. Felt out of control but logged it all. Ended up using my exercise calories, which I never do and was proud to realize I only went over calories by 6. Thought it would be much worse than that, but it just motivated me even more the next day. Cannot wait to get to onederland because I won't allow myself to try on my bathing suit til then. My townhouse community has a pool and I can't wait to use it, even if for the last month of the season. How about you? How was everyone's week?

    Wow, that's a big drop! Congrats!

    You might need to reconsider not eating your exercise calories back.

    I ate back 50-75% of mine, and lost 80 lbs in 12 months.

    If I hadn't had those extra calories, I would have been too "hangry" to keep up with my MFP plan, and never made it to my goal.

    Does anyone else find the weekends the hardest to stick to their goals? I have to focus extra hard to stop myself from mindless snacking. Any tips?

    On weekends I have more time to do more exercise and earn extra calories.

    CW:? I guess I'm going to have to weigh myself tonight
    GW: 150ish

    3 years ago, I started training for a mudrun, my 1st ever and I was determined to prove people wrong. I had limited support but was determined to reach my goal. I logged everything, worked out (played tennis and did the couch to 5k program) and eventually hit 198! Then my whole world changed, I moved and my routine became null and void. I've slowly climbed up in weight and am somewhere in the range of 239...I know I can do it when I set my mind to it. I'm looking forward to being a part of this group!
