    DAY 18, C4, Tuesday Sept 17....... FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
    totallywiggedout posted:

    Bath scales NOT giving you the answer you WANT???
    TOO BAD!

    Either put up or shut up. Those pounds aren't going to just fall off of your body onto the floor. You are going to have to WORK those babies off.
    If you want to move the scale you have to MOVE your BODY.
    Get up off that Couch! If you have time to sit, you have time to MOVE. I don't care what you do, just DO SOMETHING over and above what you HAVE been doing..... a 15 min increase in activitiy per day..... an extra block or an extra few pushups or whatever COULD make all the difference in budging the scale, DOWNWARD.

    Don't be a crybaby. Just do it.

    I think my calories are too low, yet when I have my Friday lunches out with Michael, it's evidentally too high.
    It's high time to find the "Happy Medium" .

    totallywiggedout replied to ausgram's response:
    Aus, up your am calories, get in a piece of ww toast or something. Eat the AM and PM snacks and make the "MEALS" for lunch and dinner, smaller .

    Basically shoot for 4-5 200-300 calorie "snacks" or small meals a day. That's what I was doing when I was losing best , last year, and am trying to find again.... grrrr.

    don't get discouraged. We are going to find our "sweet spots" yet. We just have to keep plugging along and playing with our intake.

    and chin up lil buckeroo!

    LOL, you can always tell a newbie by their reaction to my DRILL SERGEANT MODE..... no , I'm not angry. I'm determined that we make some progress. I still think we can and this is just a fun "poke" in the butt for all of us to keep us going.

    Don't worry. I only unload for real, on myself. Yes, sometimes I do it in discussion, but you'll KNOW it's TO me FROM me. lol

    Sharon this is sounding like Job. I can't believe there isn't something to ease this situation for you. I don't like the sound of weakness. I know you want to keep losing but that's very very difficult when you are on forced rest. Please make sure you are getting all your nutrients so you can heal properly. You will reach your goal. This is not a race even tho I know all of us are in such a hurry we can hardly stand it. Best of luck today, I hope you feel better. -83D-E0D

    Morning weigh in of 186.2. It's amazing what a few days of eating poorly can do - and then once I started eating better my weight dropped right back down.

    Had post great grains cereal for breakfast with skim milk.

    Had an interview this morning. I have a dentist appointment in a few hours and then another interview this afternoon.

    Hi All,

    Morning weigh in - 154 - paying dearly for my weekend binge

    did well yesterday

    Breakfast: 1/2 C oatmeal, walnuts, blueberries, ff milk, black coffee
    Lunch: 1 C chicken barley chili
    Dinner: have to grocery shop - thinking I might pick up a small sirloin steak and have broccoli and a small salad with that

    Exercise will be 3 miles (1/2 run, 1/2 walk) I did this yesterday and will continue until I can build back up to all running. Felt great though!! Back on track - got to take off this 4 lbs.

    Hello. Getting a late start today on here.
    AM weight- 277.6

    Today is Will's b-day and he requested blueberry pancakes and bacon before he went to work. I used that as an excuse to eat to much (way too much) so I will call it brunch and be done with it. Haven't had bacon in a while and it is much saltier than I remember. I will do a lot of water today.

    Dinner will be 1C dark meat turkey, 1 1/4C broccoli and a salad w spinach, tomatoes, mini cucumbers and lite dressing.

    Estimated calories is 1528 unless I add popcorn tonight (will try it w/ Italian seasoning).

    Wasn't gonna do the treadmill today (just tired), but Kim's initial post was a push in the right direction so I'll go do my 40 in a little while.

    Debbie- am glad you are back at your running!

    Sharon- am still sending prayers up for your arm. Please take care of yourself.
    Rachael...under construction.
