Sue Ellen

This thread is for discussion about the user competition: New You In 2019 End - which runs from 01/06/2019 through 12/31/2019.

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Ok, another New Year with 365 days minus 5 = 360 to lose whatever we can to end 2019 with a loss. Big or Small a loss is a loss.....So come on and join. There is room for 12. Percentage numbers on losses.....

  Gwen Replied:

I'll join in Sue Ellen!

  Barb Replied:

I need this motivation!

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Ok so I had a Birthday this pass week, Jan. 7th and had a gain from celebrating and the number is the same I began the New Year with on Jan. 1st, so I guess I am starting all over again?
At least I have no more Ice Cream in the home BUT still struggling with my crunchy Cheetos. HELP!
Anyone else have something they may like to share with our group? No pressure.

  Gwen Replied:

Sue Ellen, you'll need to find something else that is crunchy but good for you! Any ideas? PS happy belated birthday!

  Sharron (Slimrider) Replied:

OK crunchy things - flax crackers, low carb healthy pittas baked into chips, pickles (sounds weird but the crunch works for me) and roasted soy nuts/ edamame beans. Off the top of my head. These are all great and healthy on my plan.

Hope everyone is still committed and doing their thing?

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Thanks for the suggestions. Now if only others would message here to encourage others as we have 11 more months to go..... So far I have had 1 pound gain since Jan. 1st but with a Birthday I am not concern. Still not giving up. Looking forward to hearing from others...

  Anna Replied:

I need a rocket up my butt hahaha

  Lyn💛 Replied:

I'm hanging in there. Happy belated birthday Sue Ellen! Anna, too funny. lol

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Thanks for sharing ladies. Remember "If others can do it, we can too". It may take time as we do have to eat daily to stay alive, however taking one meal at a time and thinking about our choices we can have success this year. *My hubby sabotaged me with 2 1/2 gallons of ice cream yesterday. Of course I had some last night only to have a small gain this morning on the scale. BUT now I must make a choice to keep eating as I did before with this temptation or limit myself. It is also in the mind I believe. Have a good week to all......

  Sharron (Slimrider) Replied:

Thanks Sue Ellen, you are so right - it is all about taking each day, each meal at a time and building up the good choices x We can all do this.

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Well thus far from Jan. 1st I have a gain of .6 , of course this is not what I want but I have been struggling. I am sharing to encourage others not to give up. I feel good that thus far this month has not been bad overall. I know it should have been a loss but I still have 4 more days to turn it around. So be blessed and not stressed, doing your best.

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Hi ladies, Well here we are in February another new month. I am pleased to say for January I came out with a .3 gain but this morning lost .5 from yesterday. I have a hard time with losing so not disappointed with the numbers. Does anyone else want to sharing their journey thus far?

  Lyn💛 Replied:

I am actually down 1.4 for the month of January. It shows me with a gain though because it didn't start on the first and I had had a really nice loss on the day of the comp. start. Not what I had envisioned for January but certainly better than it could have been. Ready to make February good!

  flower Replied:

My scale went down 4.8 for the month and that was with following my food plan and exercising for 30 minutes per day. I wanted the scale to show a 1# drop / week when I started back on plan the first of Jan and it looks like this is what I need to do every day for it to happen.# Loving exercise

  Sue Ellen Replied:

Thanks for sharing ladies. Congrats on your losses. I did have a success today as I had bought 1/2 gallon of ice cream yesterday but returned today as I had told myself on February 1 I would have no more ice cream in the house for my temptation. Whenever I get upset I notice I turn to my ice cream. Yesterday was one of those days. Keep up the good work ladies and for sharing.

  flower Replied:

That is a HUGE move Sue Ellen , good for you We can do this , ODAT !! )

  Lyn💛 Replied:

Good for you Sue Ellen!

  Sharron (Slimrider) Replied:

Well done everyone - if we just keep on going then progress will be made.

  Anna Replied:

I just ate a good breakfast and am checking in! Nothing else till noon... I am grazer who is saying no to grazing today!

  flower Replied:

Just wondering ...do any of you reward yourselves in non food ways for any goals you have set and met along the way and if you do ..in what ways ?..I am looking for any ideas you might have . Thanks !!

  Gwen Replied:

Yes, I reward myself by spending £5 (not a lot by the way) on nail varnish or something I would like but don't need. For example a new craft kit or clothes a smaller size from what we call 'charity' shops. I have two favourite charity shops that allow me to purchase jewelry or a garment for that price.

  flower Replied:

Great idea Gwen, there is a nice shop that buys name brand clothing, purses and jewelry in excellent shape and resells at a reasonable price near me ~ I will go in and take a look when I hit my next 0.8 # loss that will mean another 5# loss for me ( it is taking forever ! ) Thank you !
Nail polish idea is great also , I used to do all kinds of crafts but spend my time gardening now .

  Gwen Replied:

Flower, a new plant or seeds for your garden would be a good idea too!

  flower Replied:

WOW , YES !! I can look at catalogs and plan for the future planting season or go to the garden center now and buy a new house plant ..Splendid idea ..Thank you !! I had found myself in kind of a rut and you helped me out of it !!
