    Not a good week for eating - just too much sugary crap and that is reflected in my weigh in - I'm up this week.

    But a great week for shopping - my husband decided that he wanted to buy me a new dress to wear out for my birthday (in a few weeks) and I had great fun trying on a bunch of size 12s. But when I went to pay I discovered that I had picked up a size 10 by mistake.... but it fitted, hooray!!!!

    Now I have to STAY fitting into my size 10s.
    I know that sugar/candy/lollies are my biggest weakness so I'm declaring war on processed sugar for October - no processed sugar Mon to Friday!! Let's see how I go!

    So annoyed with this gain, I'm so glad I have you guys & my friends & family to help me support me through this plateau and now gain. Also if you are friends with anyone & have noticed that they have not weighed in please let them know, the new page will be a little delayed tomorrow since I'm working until 10pm EST so I'll be updating & completing when I get home.
    :heart: to you all!

    Hang in there Falisha.... I'm with you on the weight gain this week - in fact I now weigh more than at the start of the challenge.
    Keep up the focus and we'll get there - that's what I'm telling myself anyway!

    Just remember you guys, that it's all in the numbers. Make sure you log everything you eat and try and use an HRM for any cardio/weight training activities. Cardio machines are so inaccurate. As a rule of thumb when using machines, I deduct 100 calories for every 30 minutes of cardio. (give or take). If you aren't losing, don't eat all your exercise calories. If you are losing more than 2 pounds per week, I would eat a bit more. Don't ever lose more than 2 lbs, per week unless you are extremely obese and when you get close to your goal weight you will have to knock it down to 1/2 pound per week.
    Fact- 3500 calories = 1 lb. To lose one pound per week you need to have a 500 calorie deficit per day.

    I'm sure you guys know all this.....sometimes I need to remind myself to keep me on track. Well done, everybody.

    I agree I thought I was burning 3 times as much until i got my HRM a few months ago. Sure does make me more careful. I also have to remind my self to not mark all the calories since the HRM includes what we would be burning for that hour anyways.

    I completely agree about the HRM I even noticed a difference when I switched from just a wristwatch type to one with the chest strap. My family says I am more number obsessed than our accountant. But the closer track I keep of my numbers- generally speaking the better I tend to do.

    Another thing I do to try and not get discouraged during a plateau is take my measurements, many times when the scale doesn't move I discover that the tape measure has, and I for one need all the encouragement and help I can muster to successfully ride out a plateau.

    Hope this week has been good for all of you. I've had a rough week which has lead me to slack on my exercising. I need to get back into the swing of things. Falisha, I stayed the same at 180.8... sorry but I don't have access to my chart right now.

    I agree about the HRM. I kept putting off buying one thinking it was a just a very expensive motivational tool, which it is but I love it. My calorie burn is a lot lower than what I thought and I was eating those calories. Have only had it a month and now the scale is moving in the right direction. I got the Polar ft7 with chest strap, really thought I would hate the chest strap, I'm one of those women who removes the bra as soon as I get home, have even been known to wriggle out of it on the way home. (I'm not alone here, right). I don't have a gym membership but I spent the money on a HRM. Now can walk, garden, do exercise dvd's, skip, bike all with accuracate burn. It has even gotten me out of the chair as I wonder how many calories I would burn doing ? whatever ?
    So if you don't have a HRM certainly do what princesschic advises and reduce what the machine may have said you burned.

    current weight: 203.6. My crazy vacation days are finally over, and I have all the time now I need in the afternoons after work, so I need to get back on track this week. No more excuses. There will be a drop next week. I am determined this week.,
