I don't weigh myself until Wed morning but think I'm on track as I did hop on the scale over the weekend as was down from last wed (getting that christmas week water/weight off).<br><br>
I've decided to actually go to a ww place and sign up. I've been following their plan since mid-november and managed to lose 7 lbs before Christmas week hit. I've lost 2.5 of the 5 lbs that I put on that week - really I think a big portion was water weight. Anyway, the sign up is free so I figure what the heck. Posting it here for accountability.<br><br>
Made a new soup recipe on Saturday - sweet potatoe soup. Was very good (low in fat and only 2 ww points / serving).
I weighed in at my sisters YMCA on Saturday and it said 127, which is more along the lines of what I was thinking it should be. The other two scales told me I was at 120. So I'll weigh in again next month when I'm there for the next 5 mile race and see what it says.
I don't regularly weigh myself but I'm feeling much better about food choices. I made dramatic cuts in my dairy intake (cheese in particular and non-soy milk) and have been paying special attention to eating clean foods. Now if only my running would come back to life. Ugh.
I'm down .6 from New Year's Day. Not great, but at least I'm down! Grocery shopping tonight after the gym; lots of fruit and veggies are on my list!<br><br><b>Sara</b>, do you have a recipe for the sweet potato soup? I loooove sweet potatoes!
I put cheese in everything, it is one of my downfalls. I know I use way to much of it when I cook, but I don't measure. That's my excuse. I go to the Dr next week, and I am going to ask him to recommend a nutrionist (sp) to me. I have the exercise portion down, now it is just the eating.
I was impressed, I maintained from last week. Still at 204. I might have actualy lost some weight if I had showed some restraint with my eating while out of town over the weekend. I didnt gorge myself but I know I couldve made better choices.<br><br>
This will be my first full week of journaling. Its been going well surprisingly. We shall see how the scale treats me next week.<br><br>
Good luck everybody!
Sounds like everyone is doing great! Congrats all around<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br><b>Colleen</b>, can you just switch to skim-milk dairy products? I find skim cheese kind of yucky so I naturally eat less of it than the good stuff.<br><br>
I've decided to take my stats off my sig line and just post here, kind of like <b>Coach T</b> (btw, love the Wrecks-N-Effects line<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">). I'm holding steady from last week, which is usually what happens the week after a big gain like my Holiday-5. I went grocery shopping this weekend and cooked my meals thru Wednesday, which is usually what helps keep me on track...<br><br>
2003 start: 246, 49%bf<br>

<b>Biah</b> I probably can switch to a lower fat dairy product. Just need to take it out of the bag and put it into another. If hubby should come into the kitchen while I am cooking and discover low fat cheese, I will subject myself to an hour disseration on cooking to kill him. Seriously. The man just discovered I have been using whole wheat pasta (which I have been using for over 6 months) and acted like I was a horrible person. It was very funny. He even asked the boys if they knew I was using the whole wheat pasta. My little darlings said of course they did, they pay attention to what I put into their food.
I'm off to my WW meeting in a bit. I've been bouncing around the same few pounds and I need to get on it.<br><br>
Goal this week: replace processed snack food with fruit/veggies. Meaning, instead of popcorn or a 100 cal treat, I'll eat an apple, banana, clementines, or some carrots.<br><br>
Secondary goal: don't go overboard during the weekend. It's so much easier for me to eat right with the structure of work.
