    It's TOM not sure if that's a factor for my gain or not but I'm 190.5 (up 1/2 a pound from last week) :grumble:

    I'm at 175.6 today, it's about a pound loss from last week, not too bad.

    Hopefully everybody is going to have a great week :flowerforyou:

    196 today. Hopefully this week will be the week I stop floating between 194-198 and start losing some more.

    Hope everyone is rockin this week!
  • Hi everyone...I FINALLY weighed myself. I am at 150 :grumble: but it is my own fault. I have not been working out (being lazy and being sick). I am on a mission this week to get things back on track. I only have about 20 lbs. until I reach my goal, so I am only halfway there! I can do this.....We ALL can do this! I hope that you all have a fabulous week!! :flowerforyou:

    Hello ladies...

    Das_Modell - thanks for starting the thread. And good job.
    JB - cool (well, except for the illness part)
    Key - I would blame it on TOM.
    kstef - awesomeness.
    liz - woo for everyone rocking. And heck, 196 is good.
    Mack - you can do it... like you said.


    Well, I am majorly overwhelmed and here I am wasting 10 minutes on MFP. But anyway, I had the flu last weekend (despite my flu shot... curse you, immunosuppressed body) and I'm still coughing up a lung (or perhaps two).... it's starting to sound really bad so off I go to the doctors again tomorrow.

    And I'm about ready to drop out of school. It's just that bad.

    Dear Mel,

    Don't drop out of school. It will all be worth it, I promise!

    By the way, did you look into dropping something? And if not, just think... The semester is already half over!!! Just stay in it, and don't give up! :flowerforyou:

    You can do this :bigsmile:

    Kristy,

    Thanks. I needed that. I know I won't drop out of school - I love school and I even love homework. It's the only thing that keeps me sane. Just when I get so overwhelmed like now I say stupid things like this. I've never been behind in my work - I am now. I'm down to 17 hours of work + tutoring a week, as opposed to 20-whatever I was at. I can do it... it's just going to take an extra push this week.

    Anyway, off I go to visit my first graders! I love Tuesday and Friday mornings.



    and P.S. HAHA I forgot to mention in my post last night that I didn't weigh in yesterday... or this morning. But I'll get there. I don't expect a good change, I think I gained. :grumble: Buuut I'll fix this.

    My mom bought me a shirt, when she originally asked I was like size 2x please, she accidentally got a large and IT FIT! :blushing: I tell ya I cried.... I really never thought I would see the day.

    So we just settled a large client at work... and the boss decides to treat everyone to lunch. And everyone comes up with Olive Garden (I honestly think Olive Garden is highly over-rated).

    I just spent the last 30 minutes looking for something good to eat... and I came up with the lunch portion of Linguine alla Marinara and 2 breadsticks for over 600 calories. EEK!

    Funny though once I started looking at calories, two other people come up and start asking me to look for calorie counts for what they wanted (and then after I told them, they had to revise what they wanted to have less calories). If half the damn office is trying to watch calories, then why in the hell did they suggest to eat at Olive Garden?!?!?!! :explode: :grumble:

    Sorry, had to rant.


    P.S. Those who asked for calorie counts are now sticking with soup & salad instead of a meal.... :laugh:

    Well sorry I wasn't around last week to check-in. My grandma was really sick and ended up passing away. I spent a little over a week out of state and doing a lot of stress-eating. So needless to say I haven't gotten anywhere near a scale! next week I will, no matter what the number is...:grumble:

    If I miss anyone I apologize in advance......
    Jess- sorry to hear about your grandmother my prayers will be with you and your fam.
    Mel- I'm so glad you were not serious about dropping school trust me it makes a difference... hang in there and try not to overload yourself with too much.
    Liza- I agree Olive Garden is over rated but the breadsticks are like Lays potato chips I can never eat just one :blushing: & congrats on staying under 200.
    Mack- Wow you are so close to your goal it must feel good, hang in there you can do this.
    Anglbebe-congrats on fitting into a large that's awesome!!! As for the lower stomach, I "think" I know what you're talking about....I had 2 C-sections and I have a pouch and can't seem to get rid of it but I keep seeing a commercial for the Bender Ball & I may try that bc it focuses on that area.

    And thanks Anglbebe & Mel I will blame it on TOM sounds good to me I'm excited to see what Monday says :bigsmile:

    Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week!!
