Sorry I'm a day late, been quite sick this week.

SW: 190 CW: 179.5 GW: 150

So it was a good week for me, down 2 lbs. But I won't lie, it's all from this past week having been I'll. I wasn't eating " right".

Happy to be down 10lbs this month, if I can keep that up I can get close to my goal by May!!!

... ate a bit too much yesterday and am still around 182.  I want to be 179 by the end of the month... I think that is a reasonable goal (will make it 10lbs in the month).

Went for a nice big walk yesterday, but stupidly followed it up with a pub lunch (the downfalls of living in England)

Shall we have Fridays as weigh in day???

We won't be finding out either!  We didn't for our 1st and I loved it that way - altho my husband would LOVE to know.

Funnily enough the chinese birth chart is 100% accurate for my mom (both my sister and I were correct), for my husbands mom (both him and his sister were correct) and for my son.  SO.......... going by that - I'm due to have a girl.  Will tell you if it keeps its 100% track record next year.

Its going to be hard - I have 2 trips to Switzerland this month and both are loaded with lunches and dinners out!  So I'm on day 4 of running.... thats got to be good, right?

I haven't stepped on a scale.  Not going to.  I don't want to be put off or obsessed right now with numbers.  I'll check at the end of the month ;)

I'M BACK PEOPLE!

I went running Saturday (5miles) and yesterday (3miles) and will go again when I get home.  I am also eating better............ FINALLY

I've been off track for over 2 months!!!

I have 5 weeks until a big business trip to Toronto, so want to lose at least 10lbs by then and then a even BIGGER trip to Vancouver in 12 weeks......... and want to have lost 15 by then.  Its not like I'm aiming big right?

SO LETS DO THIS!!!!!

rosietabasco - I like your idea.... today I am going to eat healthy portion sizes.  Tomorrow I will take out the really bad stuff and work my way back instead of going cold turkey in it and failing.

tiffygirl - you are doing SO GOOD!  I'm so jealous.  I just can't find the motivation to start counting again.  Each night I hate myself for making the wrong decisions and then i get up and do it again.

Hey girls - I'm back from holidays......... feel like I've been gone forever!  I was on 2 trips for work and then went to Morocco for a week.  I must admit I didn't stick to a diet AT ALL for the last 2 weeks and it shows (gah!)

I will be starting fresh tomorrow - which will be hard as I'm back on a plane for work Tuesday to Zurich and then a week today I'm in Toronto.  Will be hard to diet while travelling............ but I will try to make healthy choices. 

Anyways.

tyrdrop - I'm usually not a believer in this stuff.  My mom bot it for me - she lost 8lbs and my dad lost 12lbs doing it.  She has since worked back into her diet the restricted foods and is counting calories and is down 14lbs total.  I think its meant to clean you out and set you on a good footing.   Its made my stomach shrink so by the end of the week I wont want to eat huge meals.  I've just got to stick with it and keep working out.  Typical weeks - the most I've lost was 5lbs (at the start of the diet when most of it was water) - but the average was 2lb.

Ok - so I was naughty and cheated on Sunday.  Had a chicken burger at lunch and pizza at dinner.... oh and some wine.

Monday:  172  started the cleanse
Tuesday  169.5  - down 2.5 now I realize that was probably cleaning out Sundays mess.
Wednesday:  167! - down another 2.5lbs.

The diet is horrible - I know its not the most healthy thing in the world but its for 7 days.  I am drinking lots of water and eating very clean foods.

http://www.recleanse.com/be-a.html  is what I'm doing.

So after 7 days I will add back in things like dairy and some more flour/wheat products. And mushrooms - who knew this was banned on the diet (??)

But so far so good........ its working.

Hey guys - sorry I haven't been around.

Started my new position at work and can't really get online much.  Nobody around right now so sneaking on ;)

My mom and dad have just finished a cleanse called 'Re-Cleanse' and both lose 7-10lbs in one week.  My mom just sent me a pack... so I'm doing it right now.  I know I started off bad (had pizza the night before for mothers day in the uk) but I was down 2.5lbs after 1 day!

mdstall - I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis.  Stay strong and keep yourself healthy in mind and body.  There is a world of support out there for you - and I know you can beat this!

Miss you guys - will try to get on more.  And I will keep you updated about this cleanse.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
