  • SW: 165.8 CW: Not sure what it is today because my scale was out of batteries when I woke up and I’m surely not weighing later in the day! Last weigh-in was 154.4. This round goal: 152 10/24 - 154.4 It wasn’t a healthy eating day, but I managed to stay in my calorie goals and avoided snacking! Also, I hit exactly 36 oz of…

  • Goals - Drink fewer than 36 oz of Diet Pepsi a day (you don’t even know where it’s been... I started cutting down this week and am shocked that it’s been as easy as it has been, but I expect speed bumps along the way.) - Pre-plan breakfast and lunch (and eat the meals I plan) - Snack only on fruit and veggies SW: 165.8 CW:…

  • I’m in for my first time! I’ve lost a bit of weight during the past several months of staying home but am not even close to where I feel my best. Looking forward to the accountability and community. Goals - Drink fewer than 36 oz of Diet Pepsi a day (you don’t even know where it’s been... I started cutting down this week…
  • It's a new month and a new week! My travel for work was successful and I enjoyed the time with my MIL this weekend. Now, it's back to logging. I was up a couple pounds but it was to be expected and I'm hoping it's water-weight from the flights! JFT - Monday - log everything - Stay within calorie goal - refill water bottle…
  • Thank you, @OConnell5483 . I eat my feelings as well. Every single one!
  • I do every 5 lbs. usually spa-related, as some others. For me, the key is that it has to be something I won't buy myself/treat myself to otherwise. So, if you'll end up caving and getting a pedicure anyway, a pedicure isn't a good reward. My next up is Tieks. I just added this b/c I've been stalled out for awhile and also…
  • I'll admit that I'm off the wagon. I moved a lot this weekend. We built our garden at our new home, so lots of carrying, walking, raking, and digging. But, I also ate my way through the weekend and didn't log. This week I leave for a work trip tomorrow morning and won't get home until Saturday, where my MIL will be…
  • JFT Wednesday - log everything - Yes - stay within calories - Yes - in bed at 8:30 with screens out - closer to 9:00 but didn't fall asleep until 11:00ish. I'm stressed out! - prep for day 4 of weight loss journal - No JFT Thursday - log everything That's it. It's all I can handle, today.
  • I'm late today but better late than never! JFTuesday - log everything - Yes! - refill water bottle at least 3 times at work - No... Ugh - stay within calories - Yes! - in bed with screens out at 8:30. My screen was out but my DH had the TV on until 9:00. JFT Wednesday - log everything - stay within calories - in bed at…
  • I totally get that! At work they had someone come give a talk about wellbeing and she talked about how there are multiple parts of wellbeing. So, diet and exercise are some, but the others are: sleep, relationships, environment, community and financial (and I may be missing some). I like to remind myself that sometimes I'm…
  • I've been catching up on posts as I've been down and out with some sort of bug for a few days. Back at it! JFTuesday - log everything - refill water bottle at least 3 times at work - stay within calories - in bed with screens out at 8:30. OK, that may be all I can muster today. Happy Tuesday, ladies!
  • Yesterday was a bit of a disaster. Not, eat everything in sight disaster, but not good... - log everything (I still feel like I will slip up on this) - No. I got off track at the happy hour and didn't log :( - Stay within calorie goal (this will be a big challenge). - Doubt it. Since I didn't log we don't know, but I'm…
  • JFT Wednesday - log everything - Yes! - Stay within calorie goal - No. Again, I was close. - refill water bottle at least 3 times at work - No. Only twice. I almost filled it up for the drive home but remembered I needed to go to the grocery store and didn't want to be doing the dance up and down the aisles b/c I drank 16…
  • I like many of the ideas shared and use some of them (and will use some more) in the future. One to add, OP, is to time the meal so it can actually serve as two meals. We go out to lunch most Saturdays, but time it between 3 and 4. The good news is, we get into restaurants without a wait, and it's at a time that means I…
  • Ughh. Thanks. It's good to know I'm not the only one!
  • JFT Tuesday - log everything - yes - stay within calorie goal - So, I totally thought I had. But it seemed too good to be true when I logged it so I dug out a package from the trash and saw that I actually had 2 servings of garlic bread when I thought I had one. :( . Could be worse but could also have been avoided. -…
  • @mfreetofly2017 Welcome! I'm pretty new here, too. And, I totally sympathize with wanting wine and not being able to have any b/c of calories left. I'm down to 40 for the day but am hanging in there.
  • @Bex953172 I just googled it and found this! http://inspiralized.com/the-three-best-ways-to-cook-spiralized-zucchini-noodles/ It looks delicious, actually. Your post reminded me that I got an attachment for my mixer that does that and haven't used it. :/ Maybe I'll do that this weekend... I came back to read about…
  • I don't binge, but when I feel myself wanting to eat something when I'm not hungry, I do something that it would be insanely hard to eat during. So, my current favorites are a bath, a face mask (the sheet kind), a hand and foot mask (again, sheet-masks) and manicure. You can't eat if you literally can't go to the kitchen…
  • I thought I posted these yesterday, but since I apparently failed to hit "post", I'll add them now :) JFT - Monday - log everything - Yes! - stay within calorie goal - Yes! barely... - refill water bottle at least 3 times at work - Yes... 1/2 of the last bottle made it home but I made sure I drank it right away - in bed…
  • The dog farted. And because it's all deep breathing I full on inhaled that *kitten*! I was very nearly sick! So yeah, if you think you're having a bad day! Just remember someone inhaled dog fart this morning. [/quote] @Bex953172 You should mention to your dog that it was national dog fart awareness day in the US this past…
  • I need to re-embrace the JFT thinking. It's really just for today... Yesterday didn't go well... JFT Wednesday - Log everything I eat today - :( I logged until dinner. And then, I ate tortilla chips for dinner right out of the bag! - Do laundry tonight - Yes! Did 5 loads! - Drink water during the day - OK - I did, but not…
  • JFTuesday - Stay within calories (Leftover pizza casserole will last a few days. Don't judge.) :) - No. I was a little over again. But, I didn't binge on the pizza casserole... - Drink more water during the day! - Yes! Finally - Do laundry tonight. - No. Where did the time go? JFT Wednesday I'm late checking in today. I…
  • I complete my diary most days so that it is a mental signal that I'm done eating for the day! I didn't realize there was a way to turn it off, frankly. I thought it just auto-generated that update on my feed. Also, I usually click "like" to celebrate with people that they met their calorie goal. I rarely, if ever, go into…
  • JFT Monday - Stay within calories - This is going to be tough. I made a pizza casserole yesterday and have it portioned out. I'm trying to see if I can actually enjoy it without going overboard! - NOPE - I was close and I definitely ate less pizza casserole than I would have :) - Don't drink - I kicked butt at this one…
  • I JUST do calories. I have protein and carbs show on my log but am just monitoring calories. I have a tough enough time meeting that goal each day. I tell myself that once I get to maintenance I'll start to try to hit macros but for now, its CICO for me.
  • Yesterday I didn't stop in on here but I did mentally do a JFT. JFT Monday - Stay within calories - This is going to be tough. I made a pizza casserole yesterday and have it portioned out. I'm trying to see if I can actually enjoy it without going overboard! - Don't drink - I kicked butt at this one last week so we'll go…
