Sudafed, grapefruit, quadriceps press. Watch out in general. :-\
When you put people in charge of the government who are committed to proving that it doesn't work, you can be sure that they will cause it to not work.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Another pound gone, down to 214!  ;D

Now, the challenge, to make sure I work out and don't overeat this weekend away!

I think I just made a discovery that turkey is a good diet food. Yesterday, I had a meal at 11 a.m. consisting of 3 oz of turkey breast, some cottage cheese and a handful of garbanzo beans. Strangely, I found it very satisfying. I didn't eat anything else until 7 pm, when I had a bit more turkey (dark meat this time). At this route, I'll be ready to have quite a feast come tomorrow!!

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!  8)

I've lost around 5 pounds and feel better.  Yoga has helped reduce the pain in my back and knees, too.   Tomorrow I'm not counting points, but I won't stuff myself.  Friday it's back to the program.  :)

Yee-ha! Congratulations, Meryl. Are you attending meetings or just counting points on your own (apologies if you explained earlier and I missed it or don't remember)?

I'm thinking of signing up for the online-only program.

Thanks, K!  I've gone back to attending meetings.  The human touch is important, and weighing in every week helps me stay serious.  The weight's coming off more slowly now that I'm past 60, but that's all the more reason to get rid of it.  I've been feeling much older than that!  :P

I hope you do the online program.  Good vibes to you!  8)

Congrats Meryl!

Nicely done!






After my recent travels and limited excercise time, I thought I woudl've gained weight.  I didn't.  No loss, but stayed the same, and I can accept that.

Scene from "Cheers":

*Norm enters bar*

Coach:  "What're you up to, Norm?"

Norm:  "My ideal weight, if I was eleven feet tall."

Congrats, guys.

This time last year, I was at the height of my weight LOL.

I am down 25 pounds since then!  

It all started last holiday season, when I inadvertently lost 5 pounds.  I believe it was from "over-compensating", meaning I tended to undereat at big feasts, stay away from the buffet table, drink less.  It helps that I don't have much of a sweet tooth.  

Talking about that initial 5 pound loss with Sonja led to our starting this thread.  

Many of us have lost, and while it's easy to gain some back, we're still trying!

Keep it up!

My new goal is to lose another 10 before next summer's Alberta trip.  Moose Mountain, here I come!
