Dang I forgot about the Saturday weigh in. Of nothing was different still at 141. Kinda wish it would drop to the 130's but it's ok I can feel my body getting less flabby.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

no worries wholefoodnut. Getting firm and fit is just as important as dropping a few and we all know that the closer you get to your goal weight, the slower it goes.

I'd go for less flabby right now especially on the bra line, hate that back flab.

I hate that back flab too. I just have a little left of that at this point. I do fit into some bras I couldn't a while back. Working on back exercises as well as arms, legs, and abs. Am taking an arms class in the am will see if the trainer has any suggestions for granny wings (what a friend calls that flabby stuff under one's upper arm). My grandson Nicholas loves to come up behind me jiggle them. He's now 12 he has been doing that to me for about 5 years now.

To get rid of all the jiggley muscles would be the best, not to worry about how many pounds. Just to be in good shape and have stamina again. I hate having to stop and take soo many breaks doing anything physical.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

Tickled to see it did register my loss. Was worried we'd gone back to the dark ages and would have to use the abacus to tally my weight loss.

I didn't record my food yesterday. My weekends are my problem. I barely ate anything. I had an apple fritter in the morning and a slice of pizza last night. My scale hasn't budged so I must be ok. (so much for low carb huh??)
Oh I had a half of a deviled egg. I was telling my sister that everything says you have to eat, but what if you're just not hungry? Most days I'm not but I force myself to eat. I did take notice that when I started lifting weights in '98 I never ate 3 meals and 2 snacks. When I started to was when I started gaining the weight.

Weekends are the other problem for me - my boyfriend works during the week but on weekends he wants to go out for dinner and likes to cook big breakfasts. Last night we were at a birthday party - there was no cake, which is my downfall, but there were snacky foods and beer. I did limit what I ate, but there was nothing lo-cal!

Good morning! I have taken a cue from myself and I'm not going to eat if I'm not hungry. I am down another lb today. I know the experts say 3 m3als and 2 snacks, but that is just too much food (for me). I'll give it another week and see if I continue to lose or if I plateau.

I could never eat 3 meals a day anymore, never mind and 2 snacks! No wonder the general population is overweight trying to obey these rules.

I eat a big (what i think is big) breakfast at about 6 a.m. and go till 11 when I have something? rollups of cheese and meat slices usually, then I have a medium lunch at 1 - 2 p.m, protein and veggies, and then I really don't eat much after that. If I cook dinner for others, I nibble, but it's definitely not a meal. Plain yogurt with some berries usually ends my day.

So I completely see your point odirish, Just make sure you're eating good healthy foods when you do eat and get all the nutrition in in small doses.

I once read a book and I wish I could remember his name but it was a comical book about dieting with lots of funny anecdotes. Anyway, two things he wrote about have always stuck with me. One was comparing your body to a wood burning furnace. You can stack a huge amounts of logs and get amazing heat, then it dies out... till the next large is fed to the flames. this gives a big fluctuation in energy and has sometimes too many lows. Now I know compared to our food input it also depends on what you eat, not just how much but he went on to say picture just putting in a log every hour, long even heat would be generated and the flames would never starve.. and if we graze this is what happens (again, on the right foods)

The other comparison he made was to animals in nature who graze all day. if you look at cows, deer, rabbits, any one that eats all day everyday but only what is 'right' to sustain them (we won't include feed lot cattle) None of them are ever overweight.

Some points to ponder...

There is also no way I can eat that much. Work days I need my breakfast shake 6 am, lunch 11am, and something after I get off. If I go to the gym after a peanut butter sandwich and an apple usually do me for the night. I often try to make myself eat some dinner. Days off I only eat when I get hungry. I forget to eat.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

I am 51...and just starting with the hot flashes. Kind of nice when it is below 0 outside! Unfortunately it also wakes me up. I don't do well with little sleep. Can you other ladies tell me if this is normal?

back in December I joined a weightloss program called trimline. So far I am officially down 7 lbs. By my scales I'm down 9. Today is a weigh in day and they are always heavier than me. (we'll see how it goes) I have been cutting back on the starches though. Not in their plan, but carbs make me bloated. And... today is my birthday! Happy sweet 62 to me Smile

Hot flashes often wake women up at night. I used to combat them with lots of soy including a soy supplement. Worked for me. Doc wanted me on hrt therapy, I wasn't happy with it and he refused to change it to another type, he actually was pretty rude to me. Changed doctors.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

Thanks for the tip wholefoodnut. I am hoping that they do not get too bad. Since it is so cold here I was confused the first time that it happened...why was I sweating so much...but yet cold too? Thought I was getting sick and then remembered that I was 51 and that is what was happening. Gotta love getting older!
Happy Birthday Odirish!

Weight loss stalled
Having 200 calories every 2 hours, for eg; like from 8am to 6pm should shake things up abit and hopefully get the ball rolling again.

High carb- Low protein and HUNGRY all the time???
You usually need to eat (at least) every 3 hours on a High carb diet to stop hunger. I find, with high carb dieting grazing is the best system. While with low carb dieting, a set 3 meals a day works ...
