  • Yay! I’ve at least made the 6% to qualify for the last round! Now to just keep going! I’ve been really impressed by the Premier Protein shakes I’ve been drinking since the extraction. I remember having them a few years ago and not really liking the flavor much, but they are really good now, and actually filling! I think I’m going to keep using them as a tool for weight loss even after I go back to normal eating. They can help me avoid other sweets that are full of empty calories. So grateful right now!

  • I have lost so much weight that my wedding ring can now slide off my ring finger without much resistance. I found this out yesterday.

    I noticed at work that my ring was not where it is supposed to be. I discovered it missing after removing nitrile gloves. Enough time had passed between removing the gloves and my noticing my ring gone that the garbage had already been picked up and taken to the dumpster. I wrote my ring off as being lost. Fortunately this is just a Sterling Silver ring that we had purchased as a temporary when a similar thing had happened a couple of years ago.

    Short story long. I pulled the covers back to get into bed last night and there is my ring laying between the sheets just below my pillow. Whooo!

Wow, what a relief you were able to find it! :blush: And congrats!!!

Rachel Z.

so glad you found it! I bought some ring sizers off Amazon for pretty cheap to use as an interim until I get my rings resized! (I'm only half way through my weightloss journey)

Serious question….
Leaving for vacation on the morning of May 28th won’t be back until June 5th??? How can I weigh in? Going to NYC for family fun trip — not into packing a scale. I’ve made my weight. Any ideas? Desperate for ideas. Not been with DietBet long so I don’t know all the ins and outs…. but love it and love all the people and positive energy. Please help. Thank you all in advance. Hugs!

  • Awww, only a 0.2 lb loss from last week, but I know it’s because I didn’t stay under the calorie goal. It’s so hard!!! I have been doing some HIIT workouts from a challenge in WayBetter, but it ends Sunday. We will see what next week brings after the tooth extraction!

Hope you are doing okay with your tooth extraction. You got this!!!

Cattleya D.

Thank you! Thankfully it’s been much better than I expected! I haven’t had to take any pain medication, but I’ve also been limiting myself to protein drinks and a few soft foods (avocado and pasta so far). Hopefully all will continue on track! :blush::thumbsup:

Yes! And I thought this would be the easy round!

Schuyler22

Ugh. Yep. I had actually hit goal weight at the beginning of the month and the last two weeks have been eating a ton, consuming more sugar and doing zero exercise. Uuuugh! So I'm now 2lbs heavier than where I need to be. Yesterday, I started buckling down again. Need to adjust be drinking more water!!!!

I did so well last week when staying at 1,200 calories. I’m going to aim to do that again for the next few days! I know Fridays and weekends are tough, but at least Tues-Thus, I know I can do it!!!

Just found out I’m going to have to get a tooth removed on the 18th, to be replaced with an implant. I’m so nervous and bummed about it. Guess it’ll help my weight loss since I’ll be on soft foods for almost a week. 😬

I have 2 dental implants. I was totally out of it the first day. So I would for sure have your husband drive you home. I lived off of kefir (thin yogurt) for a few days. Then graduated to scrambled eggs. I was also given Percocet for a few days, but switched over to Tylenol and ibuprofen once the pain was managed. Good luck!

Cattleya D.

Thank you MissTrish! I hope they give me some good pain killers too. I went and bought Advil and protein drinks today. Yogurt and eggs are a great idea too! I bought some pasta too. Maybe I can alternate with that. I’ll be so glad when this is over!
