I did my first weigh in yesterday at 244lbs.

Currently trying to find low calorie snacks for between meals. Apples are fine but I get bored! I have low fat hummus as a treat with carrot or breadsticks. Also trying to use crackerbread as an alternative to sandwiches as theyre only 19cal each.

Dh has a meeting with his boss this week to find out if he is allowed to work from home 2 days a week. If its granted I'll be swimming 7-8am on those days. Ive yet to work out how else I'll get in much exercise eeek

Swimming is apparently great so hope that works out for you. I love snacking so am looking for snacks too but I never feel satisfied unless its sweet so have been looking up some low calorie muffins and might try making some of those. Good activity for my son too as he loves to help cook (I let him stir lol).

About to do my weigh in so I will update in a bit and thinking of trying the 30 day shred as it seems really popular, anyone have any experience with it?

Alright just weighed in. Still 272. In honestly feeling a bit discouraged, I'm workin like crazy right now waking and jogging and most days lately have done the 1 mile 2 times a day but I'm also watching calories. I have a couple days that weren't great but have mostly stayed at or under 1500 calories and yesterday I was around 1400 and jogged more then I have been able to before and I'm getting no results .
Oh well just gotta try and shake it off and keep going.

Hi ladies,

my husband has been studying for his finals which is tomorrow and I have been super busy taking care of lo and trying to keep him out of my dh's workplace. He's finally asleep now, so I have some spare time to come on here and see how everyone is doing. I got a chance to weigh myself this morning and I was 219.6...so I lost 2.2 lbs in 8 days. Which is not bad...but I have ran into that number several times (you see it keeps jumping from 219 - 224) and tired of seeing it. Sometimes I wanna smack myself on the head with a frying pan because I do the stupidest things! I was 16 lbs under my pre pregnancy weight 2 months postpartum but now gained it all back but maybe the last 2-5 lbs. If only I was determined and motivated, I wouldnt be where I am now (sigh)...well, I will be weighing in again next Tuesday and see how that goes.

CottlestonePie - Good job! That is an improvement isnt it?

Laura - One thing I learn is not to be discouraged! That has happened to me soo many times that I've lost count...but at the end I never give up. I've heard some people say that it my take awhile and that you might feel like hitting rock bottom but if you dont give up, you will get there and thats when the pounds will really shed.

Ok ladies, lets have an awesome week and keep each other updated!

Welcome topsy!

Its good that you are making changes to your lifestyle..unlike me! I havent made any changes yet except for cutting the late night suppers. I did my mid week weigh in on on Thursday and I weighed 218! I was happy but it didnt last long. Now I am back to 221. Gonna weigh myself again on Tuesday for my weekly updates. Hope I go below 219.6, which was my weight last Tuesday.

I didn't weigh in today. I know I've been bad. 4 weeks of AF and AF cravings have been a bit too much to ignore this week. So I guess im just hoping to stay the same next week and start again.
