Hi Jamie and Happy New Year to you too. I hope this is a great year for you too!

My numbers aren't so bad considering the sweets I have been eating lately, but I am getting that under control or my numbers will go the wrong way. I feel good and am very close to goal so now I have to start learning how to get into maintenance mode.

My final weight for last month was:139.6
Date This Wednesday is: 1-4-17
My Weight This Wednesday is: 139.2

Have a great week. I know you will get back on track now that all the holiday stuff is done!!!

I'm sure I will still need encouragement even once I hit my goal. I already think it will be easy to slip back into old habits so coming here to keep my focus will be necessary.

You will make it too, I have confidence in you.

Oh, that does not sound like fun. Actually the procedure does not concern me it's the gas afterwards, that can be a bit painful, that I dread. I have not had a colonoscopy yet but my DH has. I think I have a few years before I'm supposed to start having them. Hope you don't have too much trouble w/the fasting, and if you post your weight Thursday it will probably be good between fasting and drinking that stuff. I would post those numbers, lol.

Have a good week and hope all goes well for you w/the scope. I will pray for you.

Hey BetsieLou.....

Sorry, I've been so slowwww in responding again.

In prep for my procedures, I didn't have any solid food since Sunday dinner..... and stopped all meds as well.... so, I'm pretty tired because my Thyroid (is lazy) and really stopped working well which makes me really tired.

Today is my first day back on solid food.... boy that toast tasted soooooo good this morn with coffee and I'm back on all my meds.

The good news is that my colonoscopy came out clear.... Doc doesn't wanna see me now for 10 years..... yipeee.....

My endoscopy had some inflammation, so they did a quick biopsy while they were in there..... will know results in 10 days.

In the meantime, I did my weight on Tuesday but forgot to post it.

My final weight for last month was:234.9
Date This Wednesday is: Jan11-17
My Weight This Wednesday is: 233.6

BetsieLou, you are sooooo good and your numbers are always so very consistent. Keep up the great work. TY for being my weight loss buddy.

Hi Jamie
SO glad to hear the colonoscopy came out well, hope everything is fine w/the endoscopy too. And, glad to got to eat some real food again, I bet that toast was good, lol.

Your numbers look good too!!! I have been struggling a bit more this past week, but finally got things under control. I kept telling myself if I eat this "insert bad food choice" I can make up for it tomorrow by eating better. I bad trap to let myself get into, so I got out before it snared me good.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for your support too.

Hey BetsieLou.....

OMG..... I fell BADDDD this week. I was feeling sorry for myself because I got sooooooo hungry while fasting on Monday and Tuesday and I promised myself that I would treat myself after the doc stuff was all over..... and so with that promise, I fell off the wagon really hard.

I'm sooooo proud of you that you didn't get caught in the snare..... 'cause I did and I am TOTALLY regretting it. I am having such major guilt pangs..... and I'm really worried about the weigh-in tomorrow. I know you will have done very well, but I'm a way different story.

Anyways, looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Don't let one bad day get you off track. Just put that behind you and start a fresh right where you are. I know that's easy for me to say, but I really want to "see" you put that guilt away and just get back on plan. We are human, and man those sweets and stuff are so addicting, if they weren't we wouldn't be dieting right?! So, chin up and have a good week! BTW, if it will bother you too much, skip weigh in tomorrow and wait until next week.

You can do it

Seems like I had been stuck for a little bit there but it finally started coming off again.

Your numbers are great, you barely had any creep up on the scale so to you.

Here's to a new week and I hope it is a good one for you.

Thank you Janmie you are such a great cheerleader.

Remember back in Dec when I told you I would get the information about things that can cause a stall in weight loss? Well, I'm finally getting around to posting it. These are just bullet points so if you want me to expound at all just let me know. I get these out of a book called "Living The Low Carb Life". So here goes...

1)carbs too high
2)carbs too low
3)under eating (who would guess that could cause problems w/weight loss)
4)over eating (duh)
5)not enough protein
6)not exercising ( that's me)
7)meds
8)food intolerences
9)nutritional deficiencies
10)losing fat, building muscle
11)not drinking enough water
12)period of adjustment for your body

There ya go. These are some things to look at when weight loss stalls. Hope you have a great week.
