  1. Thanks everyone! Sorry i have not been on here for awhile..I am still OP and now i am up to 4 miles walking! Not letting the scales hurt my feelings anymore. i feel GREAT!


    CW...AP do you mean the extra points i earn for every 30 min of activity? No i am not using anymore points that what i have to work with on core. I usually only use about 10 of those a week. i try to stay with SF foods..but i love my sandwich thins..i use those several time a week but they are just 1 point each.

    Should I be eating more??? I figured the extra cals burned would help me lose weight if stayed OP..nothing extra....Maybe I am doing something wrong????

  2. I am not going to weigh myself more than once a month. There is still no loss this week. Ive been OP and working out more than i ever have in the past.

    I feel i lose more when i just do the plan..less working out.

    Only thing is my depression is at a miniumn because of the extra activity ive been doing and that is So important to me.


    I am going to keep doing what i am doing and hope for the best. My tummy is down.clothes are looser,i feel tighter and emotional healthier.... The weight is just not budging. :bcb_yuck:

  3. Thank you Jacque!!!!

    I DO feel better after reading about the scales. Its great advice!

    I have been so good at watching my food and stepping up the excerising.I use to only do a mile and now its at least 2 but mostly 3 miles a day. My tummy is not as bloated, its flattening out!


    My wish is that when you go to the dr. office they bring out a tape measure and NOT the scales! lol


    Hope everyone has a great day! Cheers for us moms that got the college registering done for our kids....happy i am not alone. !!!

  4. Hope everyone is having a good week. Yesterday I was not feeling good at all. Having an extra bad (.) It was weigh in day and even tho i felt tighter i knew i was not going to see a loss. I was right where i was last week.I feel like i am carring around a brick in my tummy!

    I did not work out and spent 3 hours with my son registering his college classes. he will be commuting so we had to find a way for him to go after rush hour was over in the morning and for him to get out of school before it started again. WOW that was a challenge but we did it! My brain still hurts tho! lol


    Today I feel better. Did my 2 miles with the treadmill and a nice incline and did my arm weights workout,and cleaned the wood floors!

    I will check in with my weight in a few days or i might just wait til next Monday. I am sure its water. Ive been a very good girl!


    Welp better get back to laundry.My day canceled so i got an unexpected extra day off!

  5. KellBell..I love this idea..first of all its so much more reasonable in price and sometimes i dont like the over powering smell of the fake butter in the store bought brands.

    This way you can make it just the way you like it! Thanks

  6. Hi I wanted to share something from my DD and me going out to eat the other night.

    We went to Long Horn. I would usually get a grilled stead salad,but was very hungry this time around. I looked and looked at the grilled Salmon..I normally would not get fish at a steak place..but i did.

    OM Gosh....it was like the most wonderful thing i have ever had!

    I carefully picked my sides to stay on plan and had a salad.

    I told my husband i would NEVER have a steak there again.,this was my new love!

    When i was grocery shopping i thought about buying some salmon and grilling it myself...i did manage to find some from Wa. (usa)

    Only thing it was 13.00 for 2 /6oz steaks....wow! I just could not afford that for the family..plus i know 6oz would not be enough for my DH and the teens.

    I think i should become a fisherman! hahahaha

  7. Judy, happy you and your DH are doing good after your very long days with the hospital. Get some rest!


    Good Morning to you all,

    Wow i was not on here much yesterday.Busy with housework, still got my walking in and stayed OP.

    I am only wrking a few hours today in the AM, will come home and do my walk and weights then hopefully the sun will com out so i can do some floating in the pool...the house is CLEAN!!!

    It rained all day on and off yesterday as well as Wed. We needed it, but i miss the sun.

    I will check back late today.Hope everyone is doing great!

  8. For me its the small things i find..like my face looking slimmer when i put my makeup on...its kinda like i will stare and wonder..is it me or is this a real change...the looser pants..i will think for a minute..wow i must have dried these on a lower temp..then i will think..wow i AM losing inches!

    Guess when you are use to gaining all the time and it goes the other way its just hard to believe..but THAT motivates me to to see more and more changes.

    Just last night My DH told me he sees how much more energy i have..he says he getting the girl he use to have back! Thats saying a lot from the bouts of depression i was going through. I told myself i was going to workout and eat healthy before i went back on my medication.So far its worked. The dr. even told me there is no pill thats works quite as good as regular exercise to help depression.
