Good morning everyone. First Hi to Diane who posted in the evening yesterday. Sounds like you are on the right track. I agree that it will be good to get back into my routine. I'm off to the gym in a few minutes. Who would have ever thought that I would miss going to the gym? Got on the scale this AM and looks like I might be down a pound since last Monday. I'll weigh in at WW on Wed this week to make it official.
It's going to seem cold today after the 60's over the weekend. We had a really nice drive home yesterday. Just ran into a little rain. We stopped in Hershey PA at the Antique Car Museum on the way home so got some walking in there.
Plans for today after the gym are getting groceries and then starting to clean the house AND STAY ON PLAN.
Hope you all have a good day
Good Morning - I'm back!!!
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. I've been somewhat off track with all the stress in my life, but with everything slowing back down and my life returning to somewhat normal I'm refocusing my weightloss efforts and am even more determined to buckle down and get the final 30 off. I've come too far to turn back.
I'm trying to catch up on reading the board....I haven't seen Uki post in awhile. Has anyone heard from her; is she still with us or did she go on vacation or something??
I'll also be putting myself back on the treadmill and working out a work out schedule....it's so hard when you work 2 jobs to find the time...I have the desire adn that's more than half the battle!! I just have to find the time.
Have a great OP day everyone.
Carrie, welcome back. I'm not sure where Uki is but I miss her posting. Maybe she's just real busy with the kids being home for Christmas break.
I didn't do well at all over the holidays. I'm paying the price today as I got up feeling so bloated from all the salty things I've been eating. A good day OP will take care of that feeling, so I'm going to try real hard to stay OP.
I'm OP atoday, girls, and hope that more of you are as well.
We HAVE come way too far to give up now.
Don't wait until Jan 1st to get back OP.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Good to see more on here today!!! I've missed everyone posting as much as we did prior to the holiday. I was off early this a.m. to attend a memorial service for our neighbor who died while on vacation in Florida, so my day sort of got out of "kilter"! I just now ate breakfast/lunch and now going shopping with my sister.
I did manage to get in my 1-mile walk before my shower this morning, though, so that was a good feeling!
I'm OP today. Have just put on the crockpot full of Taco Soup for dinner tonight, so I won't have to do a lot when we get back from shopping! Yeah!
UKI, WHERE ARE YOU??? Just busy with the family, I hope.
Have a good OP day everyone....
Hi everyone...just checking in for an OP day...you all are so right about not waiting till Jan. 1st. to restart our efforts if we've been struggling...I'd easily be 20 lbs. heavier if I let that happen...sigh....but it just feels so much better to slowly be building up the number of OP days in a row, and I am determined to continue....Diane, your taco soup sounds delicious...can you share the recipe? I am always looking for soup recipes that give alot to munch for the points or calories involved. Take care, everyone. Maajida
I am OP today as well. I did fine over the holidays - some splurging but nothing wild and crazy. Even so, it feels good to be back to normal. I ate well today and exercised and that is the plan for tomorrow too. I remind myself that it is a holiDAY not a holiMONTH. LOL For me, things have been so busy with family and such, that I just take it one day at a time and do the best I can. Real life sometimes throws a monkey wrench in our plans and we have to just roll with it and I am finally at the place where I can do just that. It used to be that I was either OP or WAY off plan and that created more problems for me. Now I balance it out. That may mean over the course of the week or it may be that I eat a big meal early in the day and eat lightly the rest of the day. I just have to find what works for me. No matter what, I feel better when I have that balance and don't deprive myself of something I really want. Just my humble 2 cents.
Yea, Uki, good to hear you on here! I am with your thinking for the holiDAY and not holiMONTH! I have not deprived myself either and feel good about the choices that I made. Once you're finally in a solid routine, that feels normal to us! I'm finally at that point!
