Okay I am not your friend Tracey but would love to join your challenge. I have a particular motivation to get some weight off by October too. I would love to loose 2 lbs a week till then. That would put me at just 14 lbs to goal. Yeah me! Anyways thanks for the challenge and the extra motivation will help. I'll check in on Thursdays and let you know how I am doing you let me know too. I weigh on Thursday nights at a Tops group. Talk to you soon and good luck!

I will weigh Monday mornings I guess since that is today....

I think another good thing to do would to be NOT to weigh everyday but challenge ourselves to weigh only the one time a week!!!! What do you think??? IT will be hard, be we can do it!!

I walk 4 miles a day. Although I had surgery a week ago and then another surgery the week before that, so I am seeing my surgeon today and hopefully I will get a clean bill of health and be back to my routine, I am going to have to take it slow at first I am sure. I would love to try cycling though, I never was able to ride a bike when I was heavier so now might be a good time to try it. Thanks, you never know I might go out and buy me a bike. lol thanks.

scale is put away, so I can bring it out on Mondays for the next eight weeks. I, Deanna, promise not to get on the scale until Mondays, to weigh for the eight week challenge. I have to weigh in at my clinic on the 21st of August, which is a Thursday, but that will be the only time other than the appointed time on Monday morning to weigh in.

Wow, now its official...a contract and everything.....lol

I have to tell you something, I clicked on your link for your slide show and now I am sitting here crying. It is beautiful the way you have been transformed. You look so great and so happy it is wonderful. It is amazing how those of us who are banded can form such quick freindships and encourage each other thanks for sharing your slide show. even if that means I am crying like a baby now. lol

Aweeeeeeeeeee, Gail, I am happy that I made you cry!!!! LOL...thats a good thing!!!!

Great, I soooooooooooooooooooo glad that you are an exerciser!!! It makes such a difference in the whole process!!!!You have done awesome with your weight loss!!!!!!!!! You go girl!!!

I started riding heavy as did Traci...I was between 250-260 when I started riding....but let me tell you, it is a lot easier getting 197 pounds down the road then 250 pounds!!!!

I hope we do inspire you to try cycling...it is a great sport and you burn a ton of calories doing it!!!

My scale was up a few lbs this am...but it is that time of the month for it to be up..blah. So my starting weight is 266..I am not changing my ticker bc that will make me cry...

We can do this!!!

p.s. thanks for letting me crash your challenge!

Rule #1.....NEVER, NEVER change your ticker to go up....ONLY down!!!

This is a firm rule!!!!!

scale Detox classes starting this week........that was too funny!!!!

I used to not weigh except when going to the doctor, now I weigh way too much, and it is getting to be a bad bad bad thing. I know this, and am breaking the habit......

My name is April...and I am a daily weigher. Sometimes I weigh more than 1 time a day....somedays I weigh up to 3 times a day...What are the 12 steps I need to follow?

My husband is all for taking the scale away...he is ready to hide it and bring it out sunday night while I am sleeping so I can weigh monday morning. Isn't he just soooo supportive.

Okay....so I ordered Zumba aerobic workout thing which is like a dance class...the nice thing about this workout is that the first week you do just the beginners dvd which breaks down each dance step. So I just spent the last hour with my supportive hubby attempting to do this...wow..all those nights when I use to go dancing my rhythm must have been alcohol induced because it is worse than what I thought. But we made it through it. We are going to eat dinner and go for a bike ride!

I go back to the dr on Monday...Hopefully he will give me another fill, it has been 8 weeks since my first one and I think I am eating more than I should be able to. I am trying not to eat past 7:15 pm.

I have an MD appt. on Friday for my 1st fill. I will weigh-in there and let that be my "official" starting weight. Then I'll weigh in on Monday's with the rest of y'all.

I'll work on an official 12-step program for Scale-addict Anonymous members. In the meantime, perhaps anyone needing the daily trip to a scale could enlist the help of a creative middle-schooler to draw a scale on cardboard that you can step on every morning. It might be a good idea to have the message "Lookin' Good" as the "weight" that the arrow is pointing toward.

Good Luck all. MK

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
