I didn't keep all that great track of my eating From Friday through last night. I kinda sorta did. I had some slip ups (Longhorn Steakhouse with that fabulous Parmesan Garlic crusted Chicken that was over 1000 calories)and some meals of simply not counting my points or even calories (last night my parents came to dinner). We ate out on Friday at Longhorn, Saturday at Chipotle (uhhh yeah, blew a lot of points on that burrito I found out after the fact..but it was REALLY tasty), Sunday we stopped at Blimpies and got subs and split a bag of chips. So I ate out a lot. Sunday I had those chips...super salty and on both sunday and monday I didn't drink even half of what I normally drink! But I bravely stepped onto the scales this morning. 208.4. WOOOOOOO So I dropped! Even with some probable water retention and my not so best eating choices! AMEN! I was active active active though!

Speaking of active...I'm really getting nervous about my bike ride coming up. My knees are aching. I'm actually somewhat afraid to ride because of my knees. So I think I'm just going to ride the exercise bike while I can and grit my teeth and bare it on that ride. Should be interesting!

Good luck on the ride. I can totally sympathize with you on the knee situation. It ain't no fun, I know. Hope they feel better soon.

I'm impressed that you did so well after "slipping" a bit. Kinda proves that movement helps, doesn't it? I gotta try that. :)

Congrats on the loss but be careful of your knees!

Wow! Congrats on the loss and seeing that sometimes even when we slip up, we manage to turn it around. I hope your knees feel better soon. Make sure your seat is adjusted right for you. That might make a difference in the stress on your knees.

my knees are aching too! Mine is from some extra weight gain since our last ride, and not training like I should be. Advil for me before and after the ride....that is for sure! Whoo hoo for the weight loss! Keep up the good work!

Good job on the loss. I guess it shows that a lot of activity can undo some of the damage we do with some of our eating choices.

I do have to say though that all the food you had this weekend sounds DELICIOUS!

Great job losing some weight! You might want to try something with glucusomine in it. Contact me I have some suggestions.
Sorry to hear about the pain.
