Up, down. Still sick so I'll wait until I get the infection under control until I really think about it. Happy to maintain and not gain in the meantime.

I was literally 157.7 last weekend.

Entropy, that's great!

I have not moved but still pretty sick. Waiting for the antibiotics to do their job but they don't seem to be kicking in as quick as I would like.

I don't know who to cheer for first! Everyone is doing great. Jschwab just maintaining when you're sick is an accomplishment. My instinct is to eat crap food when I'm sick.


PS--Remember when you're updating your weight to update your current pounds to go, move your line to the correct spot, and update all the rankings. We want to know who's winning!! I know a few people find this tricky on a mobile device, so shout out if you need a hand. I just updated the rankings based on "lbs. to go," but I'm not sure that everyone's "lbs. to go" is correct based on their current weight. Math is not my strong suit, so I'll leave to others to jump in and update for themselves if they need to.

Thanks for the reminder Citygirl. I am a frequent violator if I'm uploading on mobile!

I want to eat crap but mostly I want to feel better. I got a bizarre infection I have zero risk for so I'm a little weirded out by it. Pain + inflammation is usually pounds for me. I'm hoping it clears up soon - two weeks of doxy.

Jschwab Thank you for all your kind words and I hope you make a very speedy recovery.
City Girl - thank you as well and I think we are all winners no matter who loses faster. Actually I have always said - maybe I never said it here but I have been all different weights in my life. And when I made a decision to lose weight and lose a few pounds that is really the great place to be in better than being thin and gaining the weight back.
I have been 210 lbs when I was pregnant but I lost that weight from nursing years ago but what Iím trying to say is I know what it is like to be 210 pounds and I also know what it feels like to be 126 pounds.I know crazy. Perhaps that is why I am afraid of hanging skin but the bottom line is
I really love this forum and had success here in the past back in my 20ís. I like so many others went off low carb when I went pregnant and there are now other zero carb forums that believe in doing low carb while being pregnant. I didnít know about that option back then. Well fast forward now I am 40 almost 41 and I feel like to be in my 40ís I have to do things differently. I am EXTREMELY carb sensitive because the minute I go on low carb I lose weight immediately. The issue I will have is when I get to Like 145 hit a plateau or worse I am invited out to a special dinner and go off plan which I am NOT DOING THIS TIME .
Once MANY years ago I did an egg fast and lost over 20 lbs in a month and got to 137 pounds and looked really good because I had no inflammation but I did it for my brotherís wedding and of course the minute the wedding was over I was not as careful. I think it is important to be vigilant and doing low carb means no crazy exercising. Yes I love to go on treadmill and elliptical but just to keep moving not to be making myself miserable it has to be enjoyable. Like watching movies or shopping network while I walk or do elliptical.
I might be getting a new computer just to keep on this website more often and to start a blog or video blog we shall see. I will keep you advised. At 157 pounds I actually did film a video of myself talking about how if I post it it means I had success. Lol
Maybe it will motivate me.
Wish me luck.
And I wish all of you luck.

Other ideas I am thinking of :flossing after dinner so you donít eat again or teeth whiten at night or. Maybe a plug in air freshener so you donít want to eat in other rooms of the house. LOL
The list goes on.

I see the new thread tab but it wouldn't have the explanation of the challenge from Ms. A and it wouldn't have our 10 buddies on it cause I can't quote. should re-type it all or cut and paste? sorry I never lost the 5 pounds before while I was actively going on this challenge every day. this is my first time. It definitely helped me. I am trying to reward myself in non food ways.
a pencil holder, a calendar, a romance book, a new dress. trying to find non food ways to reward myself
