I did some ab exercises this morning but ate horribly today. I'm not looking forward to weighing myself in the morning. I'm also very bloated and cranky due to being on my period, blah!

How bad for you is Greek yogurt? I just made a ton of it, so I'm eating a lot. I put honey on it. If I eat it every day is it going to thwart my weight loss effort?

The workout I did is more of a total body workout. I found it on Pinterest and I thought it would be easy enough for me to do but still give me a workout:
20 jumping jacks, 10 crunches, 5 push ups, 10 calf raises, 25 russian twists, 10 squats, 20 high knees, 10 reverse crunches, :30 plank, and :15 side plank. You do it all twice.

I would have killed DH! I love candy. I can convince myself those little packets do not have many calories. Even though it is a lie....LOL!

Your doing great. Staying away from my favorites is how I start any diet regime. I do time with resisting what my weaknesses are till it is easy, then I alter my diet. Baby steps work best for me. Getting used to one thing at a time.

AF sucks. I always have like 4 pounds of water weight when she is around. I have not gotten her back yet, but it should be anytime. I usually get her back 3 months PP even while nursing and I am 4 months.

I am lucky that ice cream does not agree with me. When I crave it I remind myself of the out come the last time I ate it.

I am not sure if it is bad for dieting or not. If you eat it as one meal in reasonable portions and it is lowfat, I am sure it is fine. I do not do dairy on my diet as dairy makes me bloated and gain, plus I have a sensitivity.

Great news for me today! I am down to 159.6!!!! I got out of the 160s. I hope it stays that way! I am sure I will get water gain at some point, but today the scale was kind to me and showed me that wonderful number!

Re: The 25lb Challenge September thread

I've always eaten Greek yogurt while trying to lose weight without any problems, it's super high in protein so out of all the dairy products you could eat, it's probably the best one.

Awesome job Kimmie! Sadly I didn't get to see the 160's today as I was bad at supper last night, but now I'm super determined to see it tomorrow!!!

Lucky! I could seriously live off ice cream. I guess I have a pretty strong stomach. I wish it was a little weaker.

I could live on it too if it did not kill my GI tract. I guess I should be thankful. Last thing I need is another thing to give up. I love cheese and can eat that. It is hard enough not to binge on it. I cannot have it in the house. At least not blocks of good cheese. I can easily pass on sandwich slices. Blocks of good cheese are eaten at once and whole...LOL!

I love cheese! My sweet tooth is my biggest weakness though.
