With a 1.6 loss for the week, I am very excited to say that I have met my goal!!!

My new goal is going to try to get into the 230s, but I am going to leave my Valentine's Day ticker where it is - I really like seeing it say that I'm past my goal!

New Year's Resolution: By December 31st, 2013, I want to be back in Onederland and at a new low (under 198.8).

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is to be 245 or below (lose 12+ lbs) in the 230's.

Starting weight: 257

Week one (ends Jan 5th): 257 (restart 1/6/13)
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 251.2
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 246.2
Week four (ends Jan 26th): 244.6
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):

I hear you Angelia! I actually gained this week but I am blaming it all on TOM since I know that I didn't eat 14,000 calories over my mtnc cals...I don't even remember any days that I went over my goal calories so it HAS to be water weight. Dumb hormones. Looking forward to a whoosh next week...

Well I know there is no way I am going to make my Valentine's goal of reaching Onederland but I'll be happy if I get close to it. Weighed in at 209.4 this morning. Officially 70lbs down now!

New Year's Resolution: Get my blood sugar level and cholesterol under control

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is: Keep a food journal, not snack at work, and walk at least 20 minutes 5 days a week.

I feel good about the adjustment to planned snacking. I can't cut down to as light of a lunch as I've been having and then wait 6-7 hours until dinner. My blood sugar goes crazy and I get the shakes and can't function again until I've eaten and my body recognizes that I've eaten.

Week one (ends Jan 5th): <didn't start until the 7th>
Week two (ends Jan 12th): Food journal kept, no snacking at work, and walked every day--17-40 minutes
Week three (ends Jan 19th): Food journal kept, adjusted to planned snacking at work, and walked every day--17-40 minutes
Week four (ends Jan 26th): Food journal kept, limited to planned snacking at work, and walked 6 days out of 7--16-45 minutes
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):

It sounds like everyone is doing great..
Thinkthin that is so awesome to reach 70 pounds. Good for you. Don't give up just yet, there's 2 weeks left. You go girl!!

Beth great job!!

BG yep it can be frustrating, but worth the wait. I didn't go over on calories one day so I knew that something was going to happen as soon as it was over. It will for you too. Good luck.

This challenge has really helped me because I needed something short enough to get me started and it did just that. I am still OP and still feeling good. In fact my body is becoming used to what I am eating and I'm feeling better all together. I have been using an app on my phone call MYfitnesspal. If anyone is using it feel free to add me as a buddy! My user name is Sassyangies.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!!

I am going to the gym consistently (at least 3 times per week) plus I did some hiking last Saturday to see the elephant seals at Aņo Nuevo State Park (just south of San Francisco). Four hours of tramping up and down sand dunes--boy, did my knees and hips complain on Sunday! I also stuck to my low carb diet very well all week (less than 1400 cal. per day) except for one bowl of clam chowder after the hike.

So of course I gained a pound last week. Sheesh--maybe it was the salt in the chowder and water retention. Or I remember reading somewhere that muscle weighs more than fat, so would going to the gym make me weigh more? Looking for an excuse I guess but it is not encouraging to not lose any weight when one is being so good on the diet and exercise program.

Week one (ends Jan 5th): 261 (lost 1)
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 258 (lost 3)
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 255 (lost 3)
Week four (ends Jan 26th): 256 (plus 1)
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):

Congratulations to everyone who has reached their goal and to those who are oh-so-close, keep at it! It is great to read about everyone's journey and successes.

I am holding steady at 254. Did not get on plan to exercise this week. I am tired, so I don't exercise and then because I don't exercise, I don't have enough energy to exercise. It's a neverending cycle that I have to break this week! But I am happy that so far in the New Year, I have been succesful at keeping up with healthy food choices. We have not ordered out a single time and I have not given in to temptation to eat crappy foods, victories in and of themselves for me.

Starting weight: 258.6
Week one (ends Jan 5th): 258.8
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 256.4
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 254.4
Week four (ends Jan 26th): 254.6
Week five (ends Feb 2nd): 254.2
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):
