Quick update...

I weighed this morning and I'm already down 2.8 lbs. from Monday (280.6 to 277.8). That is good news and very motivating to stay on track. I have been drinking SO much water, and did about 1 1/2 hours in the gym yesterday after work (45 min elliptical, 20 min. stat. bike, 10 min. weights). Things have also been "moving" for the first time in months, so that's good too I guess!

Woke up early this morning and decided on oatmeal instead of my usual protein smoothie (1 scoop protein powder, 1 c. water, 1 c. frozen strawberries, 1 tbs. flax oil). I love my smoothie, and it's been a mainstay this summer, even when I was not on plan. It's quick and very filling. But for some reason I wanted oatmeal, and did my usual bowl of pumpkin oatmeal - the same as I used to eat every morning this spring. It's yummy! Oats, pumpkin, flaxseed, sprinkled with walnuts and coconut.

Later!

Congrats - it's amazing how as soon as you start working at it, the weight begins to come off! Great job with the workout, btw!

great job with the workouts, eating is obviously back on track (as you wouldn't be movin' along so well if it wasn't). I bet you'll find those 5lbs were just what your body has been holding onto. toxins, water, etc... They will melt off in not time. :) Great job!!

I really like your site. I have had trouble losing the weight recently. It was all so easy at the beginning when the weight was rolling off. But things have slowed down a bit.

Your site has renewed my courage to struggle on down that happy road of merky weight loss.
