Argh, I've hit a rough patch as well. It's been an exhausting few days - lots of time in the sun and lifting heavy stuff and hammering pegs into solid dirt. Hoping to recover today!

Ferrygirl, that does sound like hard work. Make sure you're drinking enough water! That's always a beeline to packing on a couple of pounds for me.

Sheila, usually these "close to plan" lapses disappear within a week, if you stay strict and drink plenty of water. I've done the same thing on a couple of weekends away this year. I hate what the scale says when I get back, but I recover fairly quickly.

I'm headed in the right direction, but still up a lot from my low on Monday.

No change. I've been eating apples which is a once in awhile for me but not OK. Also inflammation from working out. I'm finally free from school so I can spend my time having fun.

Love that you all are seeing some good drops!! I'm headed downwards, but not the whoosh I was thinking might come. I didn't sleep well last night and that's often a sticking point for me. At least the trend is in the right direction.

Jschwab, congrats on being finished with school! Are you completely done and graduated or just semester done?

CityGirl8, totally done, Master's thesis handed in, walked in graduation, just waiting for thesis grade and diploma. It's a long story but I started the degree in the early 90s straight out of undergrad but never finished until now.
