Better progress this week.  I'm down .8 pounds.  Much slower than the first three months, but ever since my budget blasting shopping spree, I'm much more OK with losing more slowly.  I'd like my new clothes to fit for a while.   :D

As I put more distance between myself and the reindeer food episode, my inner brat has calmed down considerably.  Adding an extra 100 SLD calories in SW, fish, & flax oil capsules has probably helped significantly.  I'm not struggling with the snackies any more.

Last night we had a softball meeting for my daughter's team while her basketball team practiced (a subset of the SB team plays BB together under the same coaches).  So, I've been seeing most of the parents on a regular basis.  But there are a couple I haven't seen since early October when we had our last SB game, and I was only two weeks into SLD.  One person came up to me after the meeting and told me she didn't recognize me when I walked into the gym.  She had to use the fact that I walked in with my daughter to realize it was me.  Very odd but quite satisfying.

My belly fat has gotten very loose and squishy again, which has usually been a sign that I'm getting ready for a whoosh.  I keep hoping.  If not, oh well.  I'm happy as long as I'm not gaining.   :D

Toodles everyone, and have a great weekend!

I've got my fingers crossed that that's a good omen for you, T-Vix.  Since the time when I noticed my own belly turning to jelly/jello, fat's been coming off like there's no tomorrow, and, being in sight of your goal, it's about time you had your turn at that, too.

Hi Tek Vixen and company!
Something in the last few posts intrigued me, (TV's amazing progress? the group support?)--so I skipped around the thread and read the first and the last few pages.  It's really amazing to see the steady, steady drop, and the  success and the frustration of slowing down.  Also the universal things that knock us for a loop (those SO relationships, kids growing up, eating more than we want.)  So with the collective progress and encouragement, I am inspired to update my own progress thread.  I realized I've been avoiding it for weeks because of not having weight loss, or having uneven AS and eating more than I wanted to.  The great thing about this forum is the support and sharing of the ups AND downs of the fighting with our appetite and all the rest  In short, this thread is a lovely example of how well SLD works, the glitches, and their resolution with the support of a community. iBravo! to all of you,  zerimar

I think you've really nailed it, zerimar.  Without all of the wonderful people on this forum, I would have gotten discouraged and given up when the weight loss slowed down.  I'd have said "screw it" when the stress levels climbed.  And I wouldn't have persisted to find a way to get myself out of the dumps.  My inner brat would have taken over, and I'd have been back at my starting weight by April.  It's a pattern I've experienced time and again.  I'm good at recognizing it.  But this is the first time I've broken through it multiple times.  I keep hoping that I'll be able to continue.  But I believe that I need this forum to keep me going.  You guys are my safety net.   :D  I can never thank you enough.

Right back at ya, T-Vix!!  I agree completely with you and zerimar.  Part of the "SLD" we all rave about includes this forum, doesn't it?  And I'm so glad to hear your inner brat is taking a break!

Well, I did get the mini-whoosh predicted by my jello-y belly fat.  I went from 148ish to 146.4.  Oddly enough, I wasn't really expecting it.  Went to dinner Saturday night with BF, and overate somewhat.  My undoing was the huge baked potato with butter and sour cream that I kept picking at while we were having a rather stressful conversation.  You know, the one about where the relationship is going ...  Anyway, I couldn't seem to stop myself from eating that damned potato.  Fortunately, with fitday I figured out that I still kept my daily total to about 1700.  And the scale went down on Sunday morning and stayed there this morning.

As I dressed for dinner Saturday night, I could really assess how far I've come.  I put on my new sequined "date top" and a black mini skirt I thought I'd retired years ago.  I have my old legs back!  They look really good in dark hose again.  And it's confirmed in measurements.  My thighs just dipped under 21 inches!  Of course, where there's yin, there's always yang.  As I sat looking out our window, I could see the back of my top.  Although not too significant, there were identifyable fat rolls around my bra.  Even though people tell me to stop losing weight, I can see where I still have weight to lose.  I'm back to the top of my high school weight range.  I'm hoping to get more to the middle, or even toward the bottom.

One thing I've lost perspective of in this past month of struggling on a plateau is that I spent a lot of time in the 148 to 151 pound range as a teenager up through my late twenties.  I should have expected it would be resistant to coming off.  I need to keep a better perspective on the rest of my journey.

Journey, great way to say it, it IS a journey, and not just in terms of losing weight.  So many unseen changes too!  I think your perspective is amazing - enjoying right where you're at is the key!  Glad you had a reason to get dressed up (even if the conversation was stressful, uuuugh) and celebrate with your smokin' hot legs!

It was a great week weightloss wise.  I'm down 3 pounds this week!  That's as much as I lost the rest of the month of January.  The only thing I did differently this week was adding a little more fat to my evening snack.  I usually have a piece of string cheese and 5 prunes.  This week I added a T. of sunflower seeds, or 5 olives, or a few grams of PNuttles.  I'm not sure if that made the difference or whether it was coincidence.  I'm loving it, though.

I'm now 5 pounds away from my goal weight.  I had another shopping spree on Tuesday, so now I really have to keep this weight off.  I've spent multiple hundreds of $$ now on some really cool clothes and accessories.  SLD has given me the confidence to do this.  I'd have never been so bold before.

Mom and BF are on my case about stopping the weight loss.  I need to go for a soft landing to arrive at my goal.  After all, I'm not trying to get back to my lowest weight.  I think it should be OK.

Hooray! Also, T-Vix, it'd be great to see pictures if you feel up to posting some.
