I pity the individual that messes with an alternachic - several of us own guns and arent afraid to use them - I have lots of animals to feed

I've been doing well with my exercise and have yet to eat any candy!

I also lost the 3lbs I gained over Thanksgiving weekend!

Ajandpj99... wow you have really lost a lot of weight and you are SO CLOSE to your goal! Nice job and your post just cracked me up!

OK... so I am quite happy to announce that I am down 3 pounds since last Tuesday so I have to try and lose another two pounds by Halloween to meet my ambitious goal of 5 pounds in two weeks.

Hey folks. I haven't posted because I went on a rampage earlier this month, but I'm in control now. I'm 3/4 of the way through South Beach Phase one and I've lost 7 pounds!!! Although I can't really count 2 or 3 of those since I started at the end of TOM and weighed myself the day after a party too! I think 4 pounds are ligit! 1 more to go!!
Great work Sojourner and mauvaisroux!

Yikes tomorrow is Halloween! Chickies are you ready to weigh in? I am so close but I will be pretty shocked if I hit the full five pounds by tomorrow. As of this morning I am a pound away. BUT today I start spin class (!@#$@*#)... my husband teaches spinning at a couple gyms in the area but its always at the crack of dawn and there is NO way I am getting up at 4 am to make it to a 5 am cycle class. So the other day I casually mention "oh too bad you aren't teaching any spin classes in the evenings anymore or I would try again." Well within days he gets an email from another instructor asking him if he would like to pick up a Mon-Wed 6 pm class. So now I will be trying spin again aghhhh! He is such a great instructor but spinning classes are just killer. So wish me luck because I am going to be sore in many, many unfortunate places by tomorrow!

Ok so its Halloween and I am at 174... lost 4 pounds! I didn't hit my goal of 5 pounds but honestly I knew that would be difficult. I rarely lose more than 2 pounds a week unless it is near the beginning of a new weight loss effort. So I am really happy with 4 pounds! Anyone else want to report?

Way to go lizziness and sojourner!

I did well with my exercise goals and I promised I would not eat any Halloween candy before the big day and I made it.

I have eaten a couple of gummy tarantulas today at work but that is it. The big test will be tomorrow when the staff bring all their leftover candy into the office.

Happy Samhain or Halloween to everyone!

185 lbs - lost 2 lbs. My goal was to lose 5 lbs, but the closer I get to what I should weigh for my build the slower it comes off and there is some muscle gain to deal with.

Regardless of what the scale says - my size 14's are getting looser every day - even right out of the dryer. So I am getting smaller if not lighter.



My goal of 175 by New Years is not impossible though may be unrealistic for this time of year - I will perservere. New measurments may be in order.

Congrats to everyone - for just being here and giving it a go. Effort counts no matter what!

Yeah! I did it! I actually succeeded in a challenge, with somewhere around a 6 or 7 pound loss!
I'll see you over at the holiday challenge!
Congrats to everyone!
