I haven't started one of these in a while so here goes....<br><br>
This morning at an even 210. One day to go until weigh in time. I am hoping to lose at least 0.1 to get it under 210. That would make two weeks in a row under 210 which would be a psychological win for me. Last week I was 208 with change. I had a good weekend. I'm doing much better with my water consumption away from work (where it's free)- specifically weekends. Also I really only goofed once and that was yesterday. I went to the movies and got a medium (pretty good sized) popcorn even though I wasn't hungry and it was right after lunch. Just a habit of munching during a movie (and an expensive one as well).<br><br>
This week's goal is to win the war at lunch. Several days a week I am beat down in the morning and want to hit a restaurant to chill for an hour on my lunch. Well that's expensive and it's fattening. This week I hope to just come home and eat a sandwich or something. We will see.<br><br>
Good luck to you all.

Hey, guys--<br><br>
I don't pop in here much, but I wanted to share some great news. When I started graduate school, I weighed a lot but didn't think too much about it. The first semester I gained 'freshman fifteen' and as I was reaching the top of that 15, I said to myself, "If I get to XXX pounds, I'll kill myself." Well, I've been above my 'suicide weight' for over 5 years now and the weight kept climbing. Since the new year, I've lost about 10-13 pounds, and on Saturday, I hit that magic number! I'm up a little today, which is fine, but it was so shocking to see that number again after 5 years. I really want to leave graduate school the same weight at which I started. I don't know if that's possible (13 pounds in 2 months), but if I can get under that terrible number, I'll be a very happy camper.<br><br>
I'm really glad that you're all here encouraging each other. I'll try to become more of a regular.

Okay - just because it's been rotten and sometimes you have really rotten days - let me confess my day to you and then I can begin again:<br><br>
B - raspberries, yogurt, Grape Nuts, Fiber One.<br><br>
L - (Here's where it starts) Michelina's Mac & Cheese, plain M&Ms, Java Twix, Starburst. I am not talking little ones - I am talking full one size servings. Yes, THREE candy bars.<br><br>
S - (And, here's where we keep going) Soft batch chocolate chip cookies, Nutter Butter cookies AND Pringles.<br><br>
Um, wow. I haven't binged like that in a single day in several years.<br><br>
Tonight is salad for supper. I will be doing better now.

Don't feel bad <b>Mary</b>. I went to the Mexican place at lunch and ate enough for 3 meals. All this after my post just this morning. <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif">

Doing great <b>Prae</b>!<br><br>
Mary, uh, I use to (and still do unfortunately) binge like that. I could eat sugar all day long. I have a problem. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

<b>Prae</b> that is awesome!!! With all the pressure grad school puts on you, a gain is understandable. But then to make that turn around, you should be flying high! Congrats!<br><br>
And congrats to everyone else posting a loss and good vibes to those needing the extra strength!

Sooooo, I seem to have pulled a Biggest Loser and magically lost 3.5 lbs! I don't know how, but I'd like to keep it.

No no no. You don't want to keep the 3.5! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;"><br>

Me too!!!!!<br><br>
I love it. And congrats!<br><br>
Mary, don't beat yourself up. Just make healthier choices for the next few days, and you'll be fine. Promise.<br><br>
Way to go, <b>Prae</b>!!!! And good job <b>Maples</b>!<br><br>
I'm still holding steady, but I'll weigh myself again Thursday or Friday to get a clearer reading since my eating/working out was so wacky this weekend.

Yeah, <b>Nettie</b>! (Though if you were on the Biggest Loser, you would be crying because you "just hope it will be enough".) Congratulations!
