  • My week was "meh." I was very "hungry" this week. I don't know why because I haven't been creating a huge deficit to cause that. I didn't track a couple of days. I suspect I had a small deficit for the week, but I can't know for sure without tracking, can I? 😁 I exercised a bit, but not as much as I'd hoped to due to…
  • @Al_Howard - - let me know if it helps. If so, I'll drag myself to a meeting. ☺
  • Reporting on my behaviors versus weighing in. I tracked diligently. My calorie deficit was 3250 versus my goal of 3500. This may not seem like a big deal, but I'm not very muscular and am sedentary, so to lose a pound a week consistently, I likely need to have a higher deficit than 3500. I didn't exercise like I said I…
  • My calorie deficit for the week was 3250 versus 3500. I didn't exercise like I'd planned. More in 10 Pound Challenge.
  • I feel ready to commit to an exercise goal and will use my check-ins here to report my compliance. It's been helpful to report on behaviors that should lead to weight loss (e.g. tracking and whether I've achieved my desired calorie deficit.) I want/need to exercise for many reasons: better health, more stamina, build…
  • Bengals for the win. I made extra chili a couple weeks ago and popped it in the freezer. Easier to keep the eating under control tomorrow with not going to a party.
  • Greg, I think it's great that you're readily willing to try something new, and I appreciate your openness in sharing why you're giving Noom a try. I completely agree that for many of us, if we can get at the underlying issue(s) that drive poor choices, we have a better chance of correcting those choices, long-term. I…
  • My behaviors were generally good regarding good choices/portions. I diligently tracked. I posted more in 10 Pound Challenge.
  • I had a good week from an eating standpoint. I actively reduced my snack/junk food intake significantly. I overshot my goal deficit of 3500 calories to a deficit of 4900+ calories. This was the result of my sleep pattern being significantly off and trying to time meals so that I was not eating too close to when I…
  • I caved in and weighed yesterday. I'm thrilled to be down six pounds in four weeks! More in 10 Pound Challenge.
  • So . . . I gave in to temptation and weighed. My starting weight on January 8th was my highest ever recorded weight. I was concerned that with not meeting the 3500 calorie deficit each week that I wasn't making progress and might need to give myself a KITA. I can see a slight difference in my belly, but at this weight,…
  • I'm still reporting on behaviors versus weighing in. I didn't meet my 3500 calorie deficit. It was 2855 per my tracker. The main issue was something I baked to give away but didn't get out of the house quickly enough. Indulging in that item was more than 2000 wasted calories. I'm mad at myself for that. No real progress on…
  • I never record my daily weights when I'm in daily-weighing mode. When I weigh daily, it's to see what fluctuation can look like, so I wouldn't record the wrong number. Impressive data bank, Al!
  • I'm still not weighing but am reporting on my behaviors. I had a good week. Finally achieved my weekly goal of a 3500 calorie deficit. It was a bit over 3600. I had better meal plans in place for the week. I feel good about my progress in terms of food choices (i.e. more fruits/veggies and better planned dinners) but…
  • I had a good week. Finally achieved my weekly goal of a 3500 calorie deficit. It was a bit over 3600. I had better meal plans in place for the week. I feel good about my progress in terms of food choices. Still room for improvement, though. More in 10 Pound Challenge.
  • BTW, in terms of what NOT to put ketchup on, I think Ketchup's tag line should be: "Pairs well with fatty and salty foods."
  • Ketchup for me. I put it on fries, burgers, onion rings. (Rarely eat onion rings.) Maybe a tad on scrambled eggs if there are home fries/hash browns on a diner breakfast plate, but never at home. I glaze meatloaf with a combo of ketchup/yellow mustard and a smidge of brown sugar. I may add a bit of ketchup on the side…
  • I forgot to add: Way to go @Al_Howard!! That's fantastic news!!
  • As I mentioned previously, I'm not going to weigh for awhile but will focus on/report on behavioral changes of diligent tracking and calorie deficit (and eventually more movement) each week. Tracking was great this week. I improved over last week's deficit of 2200 calories to about 2900. But my goal is 3500 deficit. There…
  • As I mentioned previously, I'm not going to weigh for awhile but will focus on/report on behavioral changes of diligent tracking and calorie deficit (and eventually more movement) each week. Tracking was great this week - - the good, the bad and the ugly. I improved over last week's deficit of 2200 calories to about 2900.…
  • I got on the scale despite saying I was not going to, and was glad to see a 2 pound loss. I weighed only because my post-holiday weight has been all over the place, and I needed to see if things had stabilized. I think they have. I diligently tracked all week. I have my MFP calories set to lose 1 pound/week. I didn't…
  • I'm down 2 pounds. This puts me at my January 2nd weight. I wasn't going to get on the scale for awhile, but because my weight has been all over the place the past few weeks, I wanted to see if things were stabilizing so that I'd have an accurate starting point. I had a good week from a tracking perspective. I didn't…
  • I'm planning to check in here at least once a week but also continuing my habit of checking in on the Friday wrigh-in thread. I've been a diligent tracker all week. I haven't stayed within my allotted calories each day, and my food choices haven't been consistently good, but diligent tracking will get the snowball of good…
  • Despite having a decent week, I was up .8 for the week. I suspect my weigh-in last week (the first in several months) was artificially low. I commented in the 10 Pound Challenge thread that I popped into a WW studio today to get an official starting weight for that challenge. I still plan to use this space every week for…
  • Well . . . I busted out my official WW "weigh-in outfit" and made my way to a studio today to get an official starting weight for this challenge. I'm not going to follow the "new" WW plan or even put the app back on my phone, but I am going to use the studio for my weigh-ins. I'm thinking I'll weigh-in every 4-6 weeks for…
  • Thanks Al! I should have clarified. I plan to be in the Challenge, I just may not know weekly scale progress. However, I WILL report weekly "behavioral" progress.
  • I weighed in on Sunday. It was about where I expected but still an ugly number. I'm toying with the idea of not doing weekly weigh-ins for awhile - - perhaps during the entire challenge. I've done this before but not had a good plan around an end-date. It was really useful short-term. Doing this helps me focus on my…
  • Helloooooooo GOAD! Yes for me on the 10 Pound Challenge. You beat me to it, Al!
  • Hi Gang! Sorry I missed last week. I'll circle back late tonight or tomorrow with my answer. Busy day today.
  • We meet here to explore, share, celebrate and (sometimes) agonize over how we do (or don't) incorporate weight loss guidelines into our daily lives. "It's a lifestyle, not a diet" is easily and often said, but sometimes not so simply put into practice. This is a thread for everyone. If you're new to GoaD, or to weight…
