Im a newbie and a little late, but can i join? I started south beach and starting the gym this week. I actually had my own Halloween challenge but it would be so much better with others. I would love to lose 30 so i can actually go out in public and celebrate.

Hi everyone.. didn't have a great day today..
I came home so warn out from work that I hardly had the energy to make me something to eat. It was healthy veggies...eaten though with not so healthy wheat tortillas.
went to bed, woke up for a nice thunderstorm. ^.^ My veggie and bean soup is nice and ready for me to take to work for lunch all week...it helps me to stay on plan. a bowl of cereal (with almond milk) and shimp wonton (5wontons) soup for my before work meal...yeah I eat strange combinations. Now I have 10 miniutes before I have to get back to work all over again. I can feel that this week is going to be a tough one.

I'm sorry you had a rough day, Sakai, but I commend you for staying on plan! It's not easy to stick with it when you feel worn down, but you did! Grats!!

I love eating unexpected things myself. Since I work nights, my typical breakfast is usually a breakfast shake and a side of something dinner-y. Small portion, of course, just enough to let me feel satisfied that I ate. I'm going through a lettuce wrap phase, as I LOVE romaine lettuce, and I love how the huge leaves can be made into a healthy meal. My favorite is spreading them with red pepper hummus that I make myself, then some plain tuna. Just wrap and go! Throw in a side of triscuits, and I have a very satisfying lunch on my hands!

I think eating what you find delicious and healthy is the key to staying on track. No one likes cardboard, after all, lol!

Duckchick, those lettuce wraps sound good! I'm going to have to try them. I am finding that for me, the working out has been easier than staying on plan. I do pretty well during the day and at work, but am more unmotivated to make something when I get home. I need to just get over it, find some recipes that work, and stick to plan. I guess it's good that at work has been easier, as that's where more temptations lie. I manage a coffee shop and am confronted with a case full of delicious pastries on a daily basis, but haven't even wanted one lately. Small victories, inches and miles.

Poppin' in ladiesssss. Everything is going good. Tomorrow we're having a Dinner Party and I'm making some healthy dishes, hehe, and no one will know the difference. I'm making chicken parmesan, baked ziti, cheesecake and a chocolate raspberry layer cake. All calorie & Weight Watcher friendly (my friend is doing weight watchers). My friend is making roasted potatoes and a vegetable. I can't wait! We're going to make "healthier" drinks as well. I have a nice Mojito recipe.

Sakai - I agree with duckchick, when you're down, it's hard to stay on plan. But you're doing an awesome job.

Duckchick - I love red pepper hummus!

Kaygee41 - It's the small victories that can get us far. Awesome job for not letting those pastries torture you.

WormwoodDoll - Your dinner party sounds amazing.

I weighed in today and am at 203.7. Maybe if I work my butt off this coming week I can get under 200. It sounds a little too ambitious though.

Sorry ladies that I have been a ghost in our challenge, guess I was excited early, lol j/k
Last week on the weight in for 7/30 i gained .8 grrrrr think it might have been from the sodium in crystal light and my one glass of fresca nightly, changed that and my weight in from yesterday I was down 3.4 lbs!
Today will be my first day working out since I started WW, very excited and know it will move my weight loss more!!! whooo hooo

PS I got my ticker's ! SWEEEEET!!!! lol I know corny but I was so excited to get them

Guess what!
So I posted in the 20-somethings about being so tired I can't work out after my job, and how working out Before work would be better...Okay so I did a day of calorie counting (because I haven't in a long time. And a average day of eating gives me hardly 1000 calories @.@ Time to revamp the the diet methinks. No wonder I'm so tired and stuck in the 230's for the past 4 months. (I went mostly vegetarian/whole foods back in Feb and that must of really cut my calories) My carbs are over 160..not sure if that's good or bad, being that I never really followed a low carb diet..fat is under 12.
AND
I only drink about 65oz of water...way less than I use to. @.@

I know I promised to actually post my weight here and really take part instead of half heartedly, but meh, I've been ignoring my 'plan' and everything to stay healthy really. I've overhauled my thinking and now need to overhaul my lifestyle again.

Having just counted the weeks until Samhain, I've realised I can still meet my 10kg/22lbs goal if I manage -2lbs a week, so I'm going for it. ALL OUT!

As of yesterday I was 182lbs, so I'm aiming for 160lbs (and will have my digital scale in Italy as of Thursday so will have easy to read results and in LBS! YAY!)

Good Luck everyone
