  • Great ideas. I'm actually moving mid-month, so I'll see if I can find the scale afterward! Hope you like the new place!
  • @5n00py Great work on getting so close to the normal BMI range! And good luck on your goal @kdavid1987 SW: 71 kg (156.5 lbs) TW: 69.9 kgs (150 lbs) Sadly that still won't put me at normal BMI but I'll be getting really close. I'm finding that for me, as I get closer to the "normal range" I'm feeling hungrier and the weight…
  • Well, I maintained, but didn't lose further. Boo, but at least I didn't gain. I did fluctuate up a little last week, but happily it was likely water and went down again... SW: 72.6 kgs (160 lbs) CW: 71 kg (156.5 lbs) TW: 69.9 kgs (154 lbs)
  • Sorry, they make specific coffee creamers here in the US that are vegan, though I don't use them since I'm a black coffee drinker. My mother uses almond milk in hers, though she does this thing where she warms the almond milk and then slowly pours the coffee or tea in while stirring... Dunno why, maybe that stops the…
  • I love all my coworkers. But I think the loud typing thing is a habit that's hard to break. I had a boss who was constantly breaking his keyboard. My husband does hunt and peck method and it's like he's punching the keyboard.
  • I have witnessed a woman driving on a crowded highway, using both hands to hold a cheese burger and driving with her elbows. No good.
  • My neighbors (plural) came over to my house to accuse me of stealing their dog and demand him back. I said "I only have my two dogs, how long has your dog been missing?" "Two months" Then they came back at 10 PM and beat on our door for a while but we wouldn't answer. I witnessed them breaking into another neighbor's house…
  • The way I learned growing up is that a spirit animal brings lessons you need to learn. You also can have different animals for different times in your life--their time of influence could be short: months or weeks, or as long as decades. The animal will visit you in some way, which is why a spirit animal is often one that…
  • That's not what spirit animals do.
  • Awesome work! Yep, hormones really mess with the scale!
  • Yeah, and when I did that when I was younger, in violation of my parents' anti-junk food rules (which not even they stuck to consistently) I was smart enough to consume stuff elsewhere and not bring home any evidence. Though in my case I had a double motive--if I bought junk food and my mother found it, I might be in…
  • It doesn't sound like a good position to be in because even if you felt great about teaching a child about eating etc, you and the parents are on completely different pages in terms of how to accomplish it. I would also be nervous because knowing a little about nutrition for adults isn't precisely the same as knowing what…
  • I hear you. My hubby is OCD, it actually helps him be awesome at his job because he makes sure everything is perfect and notices every single detail, but I feel like he'll get something stuck in his head "this is too fattening" and I just can't reason with him. Oh, he's been lighter than I am for years! And he's four…
  • He's being kind of stubborn to tell the truth! I bought him some protein bars but they melted, so admittedly that was gross. He doesn't want "real food" to take along because it might spoil in the heat, which is a concern, but nuts are "too fattening." and so on and so on... He lost his weight by cutting out snacks, not…
  • I don't know why the difference but I got similar symptoms eating eggs growing up and when I finally got allergy tested I'm allergic. Like can't get the flu shot allergic. So I wonder if they are feeding the chickens something you're allergic too and those allergens are coming through?
  • That's funny because I always think of vegetarian when I think of the food most Indian people I know actually eat, as opposed to restaurant Indian food which is different. Many Indian people I know are vegetarian and quite slim.
  • Great work brittdee88! Here's mine SW: 72.6 kgs (160 lbs) CW: 71 kg (156.5 lbs) TW: 69.9 kgs (154 lbs) Hate to say it but I think I did better on my weight loss because I saved up calories for dinner at home with my husband (on Friday) and dinner out with him (Saturday) and we had to cancel both, so I just ate salad....…
  • I set it to 1 a week, but some weeks I lose 0.5 or none, a lot of weeks I lose 1, sometimes I lose 2 after a couple weeks of none, and then I'm all woo-hoo!
  • I don't even have "cheat days" but sometimes I save up my calories for dinner out with my husband on Saturday night and the last two times all I did was eat a larger volume of food than I've been doing for the past five months, but amounts I would have eaten before, and I felt pretty awful afterward. I think my body has…
  • This--my mother eats fruit salad for breakfast but adds so much stevia that it's sickeningly sweet (plus that aftertaste!) for me. I just like fruit, I don't need to sweeten it. Then she said "maybe you don't like stevia because your taste buds are used to so much sugar." Sigh. I'm not saying I don't like desserts, but…
  • Men constantly come up and start giving me tips... I'm married so I try to not be too friendly, can't tell you if it works with anyone else.
  • Yes, and he is four inches taller than I am and works out. And like others say, my "goal" is actually really close to his current weight. I'm just trying to be realistic.
  • Thanks, you are so right about no two being the same. Our boy dog, we really just let him know when we didn't like something he did and he's so eager to please that he changed his behavior immediately. The first dog we adopted right after we married was a foxhound who had had a really rough life. We hired a trainer to come…
  • Thanks guys! It really is such an instinct with her, because she's a different dog inside the house, but she sees a critter of some type in the yard and just turns into something different. After the last squirrel was dead I told her to give him up and she did mind then, but so long as he was alive, I could yell at the top…
  • Sorry, weighed in Monday but didn't post it! Down 1.5 pounds. I'm happy, even though I swear that 0.5 pounds boomerangs on me a lot.
  • Here's what's on my mind. Does anyone know of a way to stop my dog from killing practically everything? She has killed five squirrels. Now we bang on the windows and doors to warn the squirrels before we let her out, but she still managed to get another one last week. You'd think the squirrels would learn to stay out of…
  • Yeah, once I temped in an office and the printer said "replace black toner." There were toner boxes right on the shelf, so I opened the printer, took the old toner out... Then the boss came in and stopped me: "We usually just shake it and put it back in for a while when it says to replace it." So, don't assume.
  • But if you eat close to 1000 calories in fruits and veggies, then that's an issue
