And got weighed in the middle of the day, likely. I always weigh a little more at the doctor's office, but don't tell anyone I know how much I weigh as I'm always telling people not to use the scale as a measure of much. Top 1%! Did you tell him about No S? [/b] Not specifically as I don't really d...

Thanks ! Weekly weigh in - 147 - which is great considering yesterday was a big bash at the local pizza buffet for Volunteer Appreciation Day and today was a girls get together at Wendy's. And we won't talk about that coconut cream pie that I made the hubby for Valentine's Day :roll: To your health ...

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by ! This week's weight is 149 and yes, that is near my desired weight. My best summer weight is about 145 - that is the weight where I can wear lightweight tops and not have to do any tugging or pulling or adjusting or anything. At that weight there is no muffin...

I agree, have read many, many times that an occasional high calorie day after being very diligent does indeed shock your system as it realizes that there is no need to go into starvation mode and hold onto any of that dreaded fat. Speaking of my dreaded fat, of course, not yours. :D So, the weight l...

Hi ! Welcome to the boards. Although this sounds simplistic, if eating the dessert makes you feel bad - could you just not it eat and see if you feel better that way?
