    You have no idea how much the support of you and others here does for me!! <3

    152+ Hmm?

    Food
    B - 3 eggs, sausage

    L - late, browsing, wasn't even really hungry. ~deli turkey, chicken broth w/ veg, jalapeno stuffed olives, ...?

    D - spiced ground beef w/ shrooms, carrots, greens, fermented sauerkraut, kefir


    Avoid Poisons & Trauma
    yes - did not slide to my death on the icy Atlanta roads

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    yes, yes, no. Walked down our neighborhood road to beat some ice off the hill with a shovel. No one seems to take any interest in getting the subdivision roads navigable, but they're all griping about their kids being home from school for the 4th day this week! I love my kids in the house, truly and honestly, and took my oldest son with me to go take care of the roads and quit waiting for the dang sun or DOT!

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
    7+hrs. Sun! the frigid air felt GREAT! no play, not much brain.

    Feeling giddy when thinking about cranberries, but successfully ignoring it, and it's only happened 2-3x all day.

    152.5 Weird, but I'm ignoring it.

    I just noticed that hippie_mama, momto3, and I, are all around the same weight for this snapshot in time. Worthless info, but fun trivia, lol!

    Food
    B - 3 eggs, sausage

    L - chicken salad w/ red bell pepper and tiny bit of homemade dried cranberries, jalapeno-stuffed olives. Love this way of eating!!

    S - yogurt, ground beef, cheese.

    D - buttery salmon, buttery brussels sprouts

    Avoid Poisons & Trauma
    yes

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    no, no, no

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
    almost 10 hrs. no, no, yes (Latin)

    Felt pretty darn bloated by the end of the day. Was it the 6 cranberries and/or the cheese andor the kefir? I need to find out the carb content of kefir. It can't be high after fermenting for 48hrs, though. Hmm.

    Today's small victories:

    The fat fold in my back (the one that never in my life did I have till I passed 160 (non-pregnant) for the first time...the fact that it's still there really illustrates how my weight is differently distributed than ever before, more on my middle than on hips & thighs as it always was before) is all but gone. It's really just a line now.

    Huge drop in stomach, hips, & upper thigh this week!

    Definitely felt energy this week. SEveral times I preferred to use the computer standing instead of sitting.

    Hubby says my glutes foldover is a good bit less than before.

    When you can get your pants on and off without unbuttoning, is that a sign that it's time to move on to the next size? :lol:

    ETA additional triumph of the day - I'm solidly in size S on top. The only exception is cabled sweaters, which I need a tight underlayer to keep from having that much-too-curvaceous look, lol!

    150.25 I forgot - yesterday's weigh-in = meeting another 10lb milestone!!! I've decided DaddyGrok and I are going to a Grokclimbing gym and doing some belaying. I've only done it once or twice before and loved it, and would love to spend a few hours doing it as a reward.

    Next ten pound reward ... I think it will be making my favorite cheesecake recipe (& eating some, of course! but just a bit!) and ...I forgot the other thing. I remember it was close to The Cheesecake Factory, which inspired the first part.

    Food
    B - 3 eggs, sausage, ~homemade larabar (it's Sunday)

    L - homemade deli-style roast beef (blackened) in a lettuce wrap w/ mayo, horseradish, & red bell pepper

    D - chicken salad & bell in romaine wrap, olives, ~carrot.

    S - way too much homemade larabar. :sheepish:

    Avoid Poisons & Trauma
    yes

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    great snow hike, bebes, no

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
    8hrs, yes, loved the hike & GT basketball game with my peeps, no brain


    My next partial goal is 145 (lowest I got after baby#4) and 144 (lowest I got after baby#3). Then 140, then 138 (highest I got after sudden uncontrolled weight gain right after bunches of antibiotics and right before conceiving baby#3), then 136 (high school), then 132 (wedding), then ... well, we'll get there. I'm actually *starting* to get excited about the glimmer of light I see that looks like it might be the end of the tunnel. I didn't dare to get excited before.


    Back to another week of NO fruit and NO nuts. Till next Sunday, fruit!

    152.25 Hello, Larabars! Seriously, I did NOT eat two pounds of fruit & nuts yesterday. Clearly I cannot eat that stuff without serious bloating going on. Oh, well, even "serious bloating" at 150 doesn't feel all that bad. It feels for sure like it'll be gone tomorrow. Stay strong!

    Food
    B - When it got to 10 and I realized I hadn't eaten, I decided to try an IF. I was hungry for about 20m, then forgot about food till 2!

    L - deli roast beef, horseradish, mayo, romaine. Bit of blueberry-chevre & cheddar.

    D - pernil, buttery broccoli, can't remember what else. Two mini-larabars. :P

    Avoid Poisons & Trauma
    yes

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    no, no, no.

    Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
    8hrs. Still sleepy. no, no, yes

    Alright, more pics time. Taking pics really gets me pumped up!

    In Sept, I bought a bunch of clothes on clearance from Athleta, for the spring. I picked what I'd keep based on what I could squeeeeeeeeze myself into, planned to test the rest in the spring. I got impatient and tested some today, lol. And am so excited about the differences in how they fit today vs. then!! I think they're mostly legitimately fitting now!

    Do I look like the Athleta model yet? lol. If the Athleta model let her bathroom go for a week?


    Okay, how about if I tighten the old abs?


    Okay, maybe in another couple of months, lol.

    I'm thinking I like this a lot better than last year's coverup:
