Happy weekend all and happy challenging xx
@Wmr309 - hang in there! Unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes!! But you have to enjoy yourself too! Like you said at least you haven't gained weight. I feel like if I didn't even try that's what would happen, so at least by doing good when I can, it balances it out!
I went out to dinner with my work friends last night and we had drinks, dinner and shared dessert. But I kinda glanced at this scale this morning and it wasn't too bad. I'm hoping to stick to my weekly challenge and get exercise in today and tomorrow. I have one week of school left and then I start my summer vacation and new routine. I'm excited and nervous about it!!
It sure is quiet around here. Any other news??
Official Final Solstice Weigh In today is 101.9kg (224.2lbs).
Let's see what we can do in our extension.
I am planning to continue my weight loss campaign by having salad at lunchtimes on non-fast days, no alcohol during the week (and maybe not at the weekends either) and a substantial evening meal. I will not be counting calories but years of dieting and calorie counting have given me a good idea of what I should and shouldn't be eating, so there is no excuse for me not to lose my last 2.4 pounds before the 4th July. I must just focus on the cruise clothes and the need to fit into them!
It is very hard for me to believe but this morning I weighed in at 145.7 pounds! That is 3.7 pounds less than when I weighed in on Wednesday and a whole 7.4 pounds since I returned from my Belgian break on Monday. I have checked the scales by getting on and off them three times and even changed the battery but the reading remained the same so I am accepting it with gratitude!
This is the lowest weight that I have been since last October and I am now comfortably back within my maintenance range. I have also achieved my 4th July Challenge a week or so early, although not the Solstice Challenge, with a loss of 10.4 pounds. Just to consolidate this loss, I will continue with my current eating plan, although next week I have my daughter and granddaughters coming to stay for a week and that always makes fasting tricky as I don't like to make a 'thing' about not eating around the children.
I apologise if this post makes some of you feel a little 'down' about your own weight loss but it may help if you consider that if a 68 year old, not very active, pensioner can do it then there is hope for you too! I am fully expecting a plateau after this but I can live with that! Love to all! Onwards and downwards!
I'm sure the scale isn't going to be too kind tomorrow because I wasn't trying last week. But I'm going to the grocery store today and have my plan for the week! We'll see how it goes and I'll tweak it as needed!
Anyone up for starting our next challenge??
I made it to the wedding yesterday and wore the size 6 dress. I did it! but I won't do that again. Was like wearing a corset for 7 hours. My rib cage is not a size 6. I accept that. I dropped 8lb so that's good.
The reason I'm posting this is because someone said - i think it was@StowgateResident in one of the threads that people leave without explanation.
While I was away from here, I tried not to think about losing weight but just being healthy which includes fasting regularly, and I discovered that I lost weight by not thinking about it and tracking and fussing and mostly worrying about whether or not I'll be able to or not.
Well done to all of my fellow challengers
Thank you and good luck! I'll be gone for a long time, not sure if I'll be back.
May you all be happy
