    So, I actually got on a scale for the first time since my doctor's appointment in November... I am down 7 pounds from that appointment, and I am down 31 pounds from my highest weight in 2006... I am back to the weight I was in high school!!! Still not happy with the way I look in a bathing suit, so I am still going to lose 10 more (notice I said I will lose, not I'll try to lose -- power of positive thinking, people!!), hopefully by bathing suit season...
    I did indulge this weekend, but now it's back on track this week!

    hope you all have a successful week!!

    well... that was a fast way to deflate my ego... I signed on to OKCupid to get a message saying "mmmm I love thick women..."
    sooo not a way to get a response, and that doesn't exactly make me feel so awesome about the weight loss.... stupid men.

    Congrats, Italian!  I indulged for Easter weekend, too, and it continues with the leftovers.  I cannot throw away all that delicious food.  As soon as everything is gone, it's back on track for me which will be pretty soon.

    What a succky comment from OKC.  :(  No worries; you're making real progress.

    Oh Icy, what a lame comment. Unfortunately with the dating game you've gotta wade thru a lot of dogcrap to get to the diamonds. Take it as a compliment of your fabulous ... assets ;)

    Goal - 30 lbs
    Start date - 2/22/11
    Goal Date - 9/1/2012
    Pounds lost this week  1.2
    Left to go - 19 
    Total lost since 2/22/11 - 11 lbs

    I'm starting to think that results lag by a week . . . last week I stayed on the program and was up .8, and this week I went out to dinner twice over the weekend (including 1/2 a sinful dessert) and still lost.  If I'm up next week, I guess I'll know why.

    Great job, Luna!  

    I've experienced that lag, too, by the way, but I can't think of a logical reason why that is.  Either fat stores have been tapped to make up for a calorie intake deficit or they have been added to for a calorie surplus every day.  It makes no sense for it to take a week for that to show up with the knowledge I have; I must be missing some part of the equation.  Sodium flushing, maybe...not sure how long it takes to undo a salty few days.

    Nuked the heck out of my bronchitis with antibiotics and have managed to keep 5 lbs off. Hopefully it's a building block!

    I swear I have received this exact same message, word for word.

    Good lord.

    Do they really think it's flattering?

    Oh, and everything I lost is back again this week.  I really feel like screaming at this point.  I really don't know what the heck I'm doing that's so different from last spring.

    Jeen, if you're truly and objectively doing the exact same things, you've likely had had a shift in metabolism.  Here are some possible culprits for a lower metabolism (which translates into a lower calorie need than you've had before)

    Less muscle mass
    Hormonal changes
    Recent signfificant weight/fat loss
    Higher general stress level (impacting cortisol and other stress hormones)

    You can build muscle, of course, by adding a regular (3 times a week) weight routine to your exercise plan.  The other stuff you're pretty much stuck with.  But, if you are doing the same thing as last Spring but not getting the same results, you can probably safely assume your resting metabolism is different and you have to eat fewer calories to achieve what you used to be able to do having consumed more.

    I had totally forgotten I had a tremendously salty dinner and about had heart failure when I got on the scale this morning!  Water, green tea, and more water for me today.  O M G.

    Congrats on the new job and another pound, CHC.

    GAH!

    I keep forgetting to do your official updates until I'm too pressed for time to get to it!

    I am having a bad week weight-wise, mostly because I started to seriously up my water intake and I'm apparently holding on to a lot of it.  In fact, I am up FOUR POUNDS since my last weigh-in.  I am struggling mightily not to panic.  I have never had trouble losing weight in April before.

    Keep drinking the water and have a banana (or other potassium rich, sodium free snack), and you'll pee it out soon enough. :)

    Re: The Official LL "Where Did My Butt Go?" Thread

    I was starting to get panicky, but the scale has been edging its way down all day.  It usually goes up every day only to dip overnight, so that bodes well for the morning.  Phew!  Salt really does a number on my weight and psyche, and I've been indulging in far too much since Easter.

    ETA:  Jeen, was it you who said you were doing the same thing as last year but not getting the same results?  I am watching the news right now, and they just gave a blurb about a new study about prescription drugs and weight gain.  It might be something to consider if you've started a new prescription this year.  Doctors don't always mention the risk of weight gain.  And, this reminds me, I was on an anti-depressant that made me ravenous all the time for about 3 years.  I, of course, gained about 15 lbs before I realized that I could no longer go by my body's cues for hunger regarding when to snack. 

    Oh, wait, here it is... 

    Insulin for Type 2 Diabetes
    Some mood stabilizers
    Some anti-inflammatories
    Some blood pressure medication

    Some increase appetite, others slow down metabolism, but the mechanism isn't always known.  If you suspect weight gain from a prescription, ask your doctor if you can switch.  There's an estimated 50 medications that cause people to pack on the pounds, and there is a push in the industry to make "skinny" versions of these drugs.  (paraphrased from Channel 4 News just now)

    _____________________

    BAHHHH!!! I'm up. But what you don't see is I was up like 1.5 lbs and it has thankfully come back to a safer resting place on the scale. Lots of social events that both interrupt exercise and provide food (and BOOZE) temptation are the culprits. Turns out water works wonders though... 2 good days of hydration and heathy eating flushed it away.

    Neener, can I at least have the outdoor running path of shame? The treadmill makes my world hurt.

    I'm with Natty G this week - I'd like my treadmill to be outdoors please? Or will the trotting back and forth to the bathroom be enough since I'm about to start swigging the H2O?

    Enjoy the weekend lovelies!!!
