Guess I'll start this one. Down 1 pound exactly from last week. Time for the post holiday comeback.

I don't weigh in until Wednesday. Nothing special to report at the moment. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

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 am down a pound....I have been toying with the idea of cutting down on dairy also, but I love yogurt. That could be a huge problem for me.

Yogurt stayed for me but I had to cut down on my beloved cheese. I love it too much and it's showing on my ass and thighs <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

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>
11/2007 start: 207, 34%bf<br>
Current:208<br>
Goal: 185

<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.

Hey all.<br><br>
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.
