    Nothing wrong with too much positive mental attitude. I have trouble with that on Mondays and to top it off, I was up again.

      Shoveled snow today (have I mentioned that I don't liiiiiiike snow? that was supposed to be a benefit of moving to New Mexico). Seems like that should count as my exercise for today Doing okay, but wish I'd had a few more beverage by this point in the day.

        I'm really under today. It was not planned or purposeful...just happened. Must just be the really lean cuts of beef I had today (and, yeah, it was noticeable that they were so lean). Oh well, I'll probably eat like a horse tomorrow.

        I calculated my calorie ranges from current weight (165) all the way down to goal weight (135). I can eat A LOT of calories to maintain at my goal weight. No wonder why I had such an easy time maintaining (boy, I can eat a lot at my current weight!), but a challenging time losing. Woo hoo. I need to speed through weight loss so I can get back to maintenance

          I have been very good at maintaining high weights! I was at 260ish for 5 years (after losing 30), then I was at 290 ish for 5 years, with a bit of yo-yoing:~) the trick is gonna be maintaining at 160ish.

            167 (+2) - Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?????????? Seriously, not sure where that came from at all. Have been eating very well (and I don't lie to my journal). I can only think of two things -- it's a slight delay from eating out on Sunday (but I don't think so, because I really did okay...) or maybe my body is retaining some fluid after shoveling for an hour yesterday. I don't know. Will eat super good again today and see what tomorrow brings. Because I am going to hit 160 by the end of the year, if not earlier (do you hear me body?).

              I always have a day or 2 delay from going off track. It is like the next day I get on the scale and think ah, no consequences, but the day after that it shows up. It has to be about water retention, because as Matt told me when I put a couple on overnight "there is no way you overate by 3500 if you were being conscious about what you were eating, has to be water"

              Yesterday, I put a tablespoon of the apple cider vinegar into a liter of water and added a few drops of stevia, it was very good and seriously helped with the water retention. Worth a shot.

                  I was on a tread about water retention yesterday and one of the comments was essentially that "You store 3-4g of water per each gram of glycogen stored, so keeping carbs in the 40-50g range for around 3-4 days with no fruit, sugar or starch goes a long way in removing stored water."

                  Every thing else was pretty much your typical salt, water advice. But I was thinking that even if you "do well" in a restaurant setting you are still going to get more carbs that you expect because of thickeners and fillers and what not, that are part of sauces they use. I had not thought of this before, but it helps to explain why, even when I work to do well when eating out I still retain water. That and of course all the salt they use.

                    That is an excellent break down of what truly happens when we eat out. My husband never gets why I don't want to eat out very often. Just be careful he says. Sometimes being careful is still not enough.

                      Totally agreed on the restaurant thing. It's hard often because my coworkers want me to eat with them when I'm over in SF...but I try hard to find reasons not to.

                      TOM arrived. Last week was PMS -- totally explains the random crying in the car, the irrational feelings of guilt, etc. I broke my own rule - down 1/2 lb to 166.5 3 hours later

                      Gotta brave the snow and ice and head to Santa Fe for a meeting and then a dentist appt. Not planning to eat while I'm there, so eating a big breakfast with lots of veggies. Chugging lots of water

                        seems to me the safest thing I can do in a restaurant is to have salad with vinegar and oil, and some protein source (steak preferred) but no matter the protein source they are going to salt and marinate in something. But since it is such a rare occasion, like in the old days, I just mentally prepare myself and go on with life.

                        I accidentally weighed myself twice this am. Did it right when I woke up, then again after I had gone potty forgetting I had already done the scale, but the new number was lower so I took it, just gotta make sure I don't make a habit of it!

                          makes so much sense! I have not eaten out in weeks and it makes a difference. However, ugh.. have to eat with the co-workers next week. The birthday girl thankfully chose mexican which is easier than pizza or chinese.

                            166 sigh...... down a pound from yesterday, but still up a pound from the day before. How come it comes on so quickly but doesn't fall off as fast? Ok. Fine. Tomorrow it will be hopefully be back to where I started and then I'll go forward again. Yesterday was crazy. No chance for water or lunch. At least things the dentist were good. My teeth are looking good - no cavities in sight (I'm terrified of the dentist and therefore don't go as often as I should).

                            Back later to catch up on everything.

                              when I was put on prednisone in April I gained 14 pounds in a week and it took me almost 2 months to lose it back once off the prednisone. You would think just dropping the drug would have been enough, but not so much. Then last month, I dropped my diuretic because my BP had gotten too low to continue it. Gained 10 pounds in 10 days, took me 4 weeks to get it back off. Life, and the scale, are not always fair.
