Jenny :)

    2 pound gain, nothing I can say things aren’t going well. I go to the doctor in a few hours hopefully he’ll be able to help me understand.
    Sorry I’m not doing better and I hope everyone else is.
  • Sorry your not feeling too good at the moment Vic, hope Dr helped you. Well done Jenny, you are doing soooooooooo well.

    I managed to sort my life out last week, all our visitors and excuses for big dinners have gone (boo hoo but good for the waistline). I managed to lose the 3 lbs that I had put on the previous week - yippee yahoo.

    So here I am 3 lbs down and weighing 160 lbs - a total loss of 31 lbs in just over a year.

    I'm off to residential physio this week, the food is fab so I'm not too sure what I will be reporting next week!!!!

    Have a good week everyone.
  • :) vic, once again i am so sorry you are not feeling yourself. what a change for you!!! i hope the doctor can help sort it out with you and get you back on your game plan. maybe it is time to go back to your yard and the pinecones! lol! either way i am here for you!! a weight gain often goes with feeling bad so don't even worry about that! you will get back on track i know it!

  • :) doof, HURRAY 3 pounds and with all that activity! have a terrific time at your in patient program! you will be missed! Jenny :)
  • Hi All!
    I was on vacation and then was just playing hooky from the list because you know I gained weight on vacation. Not to mention it's been hot as heck out and I don't wanna walk. Well, now the regained weight is gone. So I guess I'm still at the same old weight. This morning I was down another lb but I think it was partially dehydration.

    Vic, I sure hope you are feeling better.

    Way to go Doof!

    Jenny, you've been working hard at this and it's paying off!

    Take care and have a good week!
  • :) ranchoalmosta, slowly but surely is the way to go. i hope you had a great time getting away and just forgetting about us for awhile. lol! we need all the support we can get right now with the changes in the forum. i am glad you found your way over! have a good week! Jenny :)
  • :) ranchoalmosta, how nice to see you made it over all in one piece. and without gaining a pound! lol! we are in and out of a heat wave here. i know what you mean about going out walking in the heat. i think my dog feels the same way! have a healthy and happy week. Jenny :)
  • Yuck. I can't say that I did not expect it. I did gain 1.5 lbs last week. I hate going the wrong way but I really feel that the horrid back pain that I had at the beginning of the week hurt me alot last week. This week I WILL at least take off what I gained. That puts me at 238.5 lbs. Started in February at 256 lbs.
    Vic, I am sorry that you are not feeling well. Hope the doc helps you out and gets you back on track. Do not get discouraged though. We will all still be here to support you.
    Doof, 31 lbs in 1 year is GREAT! The slower weight loss really is easier to maintain.
    OK everyone, let's put our best foot forward for the coming week and see what we can do!
