    @gigglemachine - It always makes me happy to see our team on the leaderboard when I make the results posts. We work so hard, I figure we deserve it :smile:

    @cleaneater80 The hike was (only?) 10 miles but we were camping at the time which means much more walking than usual - every time you need to go, the toilets are 5 minutes away - one way! :D
    That hike was the longest I ever took with my kids - and we were truly tired and sore later.

    My trip to the west coast was wonderful. 7 days with my grown kids was an awesome time. We flew to Seattle and spent the day walking to everything there, then drove down the coast as far as Florence Oregon stopping at every lookout along the way then back to Seattle. Saw a lot of ocean, the falls along Columbia Gorge, tide pools, Mt Hood, MT St Helens, and more. The Rose Gardens in Portland ate beautiful. Visited with my brother and sister too.
    And I only gained about a pound! We walked everywhere and I ate light partly due to upset stomach but it was all good food that I don't usually eat at home..

    @minstrelofsarcasm I have never slept well. I take after my mother. My youngest son is the same way. I am awake around 2am and fall back to sleep around 4 if I'm lucky. They told me getting my cpap machine would help me sleep through the night, well they lied, lol. I also tried taking my meds with dinner and I still forget. I do get into a routine but the first time I forget that's it for a bit.

    I stepped on the scale this morning just to see the damage from the weekend but my weight had gone down so I'm hoping it stays thay way when I get on tomorrow. We are going away this weekend with the kids and grandkids, can't wait. We leave Friday morning and I'm already packed. I love watching my granddaughters together they are so funny and up to no good, everyone always thinks they are twins. We should get a lot of walking in.

    I don't know how the hell I gained 5lb... i'm so sorry to the team for this because i know it's not good for the stats at all- I'll make up for it in the coming weeks!

    I feel like I'm really holding on to water... my knee is super swollen. It can only be this because my food intake, albeit not the greatest, was not enough to warrant a 5lb gain... this week i'm going to be drinking more water to stay hydrated because i know dehydration can cause water retention...

    It was my partner's birthday yesterday so we ate some far-from-virtuous things, and today I have some all you can eat plans with friends haha. But after tonight I'll be back on my food plan 100%! i'll be doing some chair exercises on my days off work too, so I can rest my knee and still do some movement!

    Everything is very much trial and error in the first few weeks, I have to remember not to get disheartened by a tough week... my weight doesn't define me or the effort i put in!

    This is so important! There's no way you could have gained 5 whole pounds over the course of a week without at least some of it being water. One pound is approximately 3500 calories, so to gain 5 would be about 17500 calories. Absolutely not. Glad you're keeping your head up! Can't wait to see it all whoosh right off again.

    It's Thursday evening and I'm leaving for another weekend camping trip tomorrow morning so decided to report the current weigh today - I might forget tomorrow!

    PW: 139.8
    CW: 138.3

    I expect bloating and water retention once I'm back. I am hopeful to get rid of both by next Friday. I'd be happy to stay at the same number as today.

    Was down to 159 earlier this week, so I've gotta keep working at it. I'll try to join the step challenge for next week. I have to remember to wear my watch everyday! :)

    Friday weigh in

    Pw: 145
    Cw: 149

    I let myself and this team down this week. The gain is a combination of overeating from the past weekend holiday and having a cold this week. Plus I am emotional eating a lot these days. Even as I write this I am craving a sweet something to feel the void of my loneliness.

    My body is such that if I don’t severely limit and watch my calories then I put on the pounds. This is a fact I know to be true about myself. If I want my weight to be ideal I have to make food intake my priority!

    It’s time to do it. A gain of two more pounds will put me in the Overweight BMI. I worked hard to get out of that category. When I feel like stopping tracking my calories and weighing in each week, I think about why I started. I didn’t like being obese. I was not happy with my weight. I need to remember this before my weight keeps creeping. Also this quote goes a long way with me…

    If I don't eat junk, I don't gain weight.
    -Paula Christensen

    For reference, when I started on this group I weighed 195 lbs…in a years time I got down to 135 lbs. In all honesty though I reached my saddest point in life at 135 lbs. I had to have a mental breakdown to recover from the low I was at. It happened last April, and I am still recovering from it. Weight is not my biggest priority in life, but it is definitely important. I don’t want to be overweight or obese because I know it will limit my physical activity with my kids and pets. Plus my doctor tells me that physical fitness is right up there with mental well being.

    In two weeks, you'll feel it. In four weeks, you'll see it. In eight weeks, you'll hear it.
