Friday Weekly Weigh In
how has yoru week been? Mine has been frantic as usual - I was very stressed at the start of the week, but although the issues/work load is still there I'm dealing with it all better so am enjoying life again. It's amazing how attitude can affect the whole body isn't it.
Anyway, here are my numbers for this week:
This week: 173
YAY...I'm really pleased. I do miss those early days when it felt like it dropped off, even though I was a slow loser compared to others, but at this stage, 2lb is good for me and takes me closer to my mini goal.
Does anyone still do the chain thing? Remember we had a chain gang thing going on at one time - I can't remember who started it, but I still have my paperclips hanging up in my dining room. One chain for all the pounds I've lost and one for the pounds I still want to lose. When I', feeling fat or like I haven't lost weight, I look at the long chain of all the pounds I've alreayd lost and feel better about my acheivement.
Have a great week, and remember (note to self as well!!), no matter what the cir****tances, you can ALWAYS feel good about yourself. Be proud

I actually stayed at 194 for over a year. I had creeped up to 202 at my doctors appointment in early May when we confirmed my pregnancy. I had a miscarriage at 5 weeks. I have gained 8 pounds in a month!!!! Truly showing my food addict tendancies. I have been using food as a coping mechanism. BUT I AM TAKING CONTROL!!!!! I have updated my FitDay. I have set a minigoal of 199 for August 3rd ( my birthday and day before school/work starts back). I'm back to counting carbs and protein.

I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage, I know you were so excited about being pregnant.
Our food addict tendancies are with us for life aren't they. I was one of those who thought once I'd had wls all those difficulties would be solved! How wrong could I be?? It's step by step journey that we are on. You've made the right decision in addressing your weight gain now rather than later, and have looked at why you have gained weight and been honest with yourself. I'm sure you will do great just as you have before, now that you are focussed back.
Please keep in touch and let us know if we can help in any way. I usually post on the Back On Track Together forum now as there aren't many people left on here... Look forward to seeing you again soon
I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarraige!!! I'm slow at the boards and I see Ruth is starting back up weigh in Fridays,but not many joining in!!
I am like you,I have gained 28 pounds in 3 years,never even GOT close to my goal!!! I never wanted to go over 200 again! But here I am again 10 pounds away......I worry too much about my weight,so I think I am just going to forget it for awhile!!!
Good luck with yours!!
