    133.0. It's been tough to bike with the cold, windy weather we've been having up here. Time to get on the exercycle, I guess, although it'll be hard to stay motivated for that.

    142.6.

    Given my 1-step-forward-2-steps-back history, I'm cautiously optimistic. I was able to exercise almost every day last week, which has not happened in quite a while.

    138....

    Yes we hosted a conference this week and yes I ate things I shouldn't have...but I didn't gain anything over the conference.

    Unsure what is going on...probably a combination of things.

    I'd ordinarily not bother with tenths of a pound but I'm posting my official WW weigh-in weight. Yeah, that's it.

    The next weigh-in will be interesting. DH and I are heading up to wine country this weekend for the Asti Tour di Vine; if last year was any indication, there'll be numerous rest stops stocked with delicious treats. And an excellent after-ride lunch. At a winery. Ruh-roh.
    You do get an allowance, you can behave the rest of the days. Have fun, that sounds amazing!

    143. No change, but my jeans feel a little less snug, so I'm cautiously optimistic. :-) I've been spot on my training plan for the past 14 days, so I'm feeling pretty good. Tired, but good. :-)

    I was just thinking about this while I was out taking a walk -- I recently discovered by accident that I'm putting too much syrup on my waffles every morning. (Long story, my preferred store brand whole grain waffles have been out of stock, so I've been eating Eggos, which don't soak up the syrup as much as the store brand does, making the amount of syrup on the plate much more obvious).

    In the past I've found that little things you do frequently can make a big difference in gaining and losing weight. Like using less of a certain condiment or sauce in a meal you eat often, or switching from a full-fat to a reduced-fat option. I like pancake syrup on my waffles (real maple syrup is too expensive for every day) and I switched to the "light" version a long time ago, which cut out some daily calories. But clearly I can use less of it every day and still enjoy my breakfast.

    Anyway, this is the fifth day this week that I've gotten exercise. Tomorrow I need to run errands and finish getting my mountain bike ready for its first ride in years. I'm hoping to do 2-3 hours on the C&O Canal towpath on Sunday.

    weeeee

    56.5kg's.....meaning...i've met my goal & now just have to accept it. It's hard for me to acknowledge within that i've lost 10kgs...
    I have 2kgs to lose to get to my optimal weight for my height/age but am not in a rush...

    I've not been on my bike nor swum since june due to my injury and then rehabbing it but have found tons of other stuff to keep me on my toes. I'm allowed to run uphill & have just started doing Mount Street, which i believe is 22% gradient. I do long (1hr to 3hr) walks on either the sand or the purpose built bibbulmun track, jacob's ladder (250 steps) and the kokoda stairs in Kings Park to keep me on my toes..Still doing one personal training session a week but no upper body on the ground stuff (ie push up type things)

    Physio exercises are weights based & am up to lifting 17.5kgs for one in particular. I'd have to find the exercise to show but it's not bicep curl things...

    146.5 for me this week. Not bad considering that this past week has been very light on activity compared to the previous few weeks.

    YEAH to goldfinch and crazycanuck! Great job turning the square to a new color (yeah, that happens when you meet your goal, or are at least less than a lb away).

    Thanks Posse!

    I have decided that at 114 pounds (actually, anything less than 115) is acceptable. I am now in normal weight range where I was obese. Now I concentrate on fitness. Today I met with a personal trainer, had an assessment, and Wednesday will be our first session. My upper body strength and core strength are crap. Let's see what I can do about that!

    I know the toughest is ahead of me. The odds of me keeping this weight off are extremely low. But those who do manage to keep off the weight are people who watch the scale, pay attention to calories, and who exercise. Every day I keep off the weight the odds improve.

    I will likely live my life hungry, fighting my brain and body's urge to put on the weight. For now, I am content with that.

    Roxy, have you heard from your doctor yet about the fluid retention? Hopefully it's just a temporary side effect of ending that medication.

    Yeah, let us know. I have been worrying about that.
