I started last Tuesday at 217. I am now 212 as of Mon. Feb 4. I will be back to let you know of my success.

I have no room for failure.

I may be slow but I am determined not to be a statistic.
The statistic is that there is such a high percentage of obeses people in Appalachia.

Let me know of other successes.

Ok! Hope we get some more participants here. Ending the "eating day" with 1760 calories. It was really a rest day for exercise, as I was feeling a little overtrained and that's not good! I did do 50 minutes of fitness walking with some flexband resistance training for upper body. I broke the 50 minutes into segments throughout the day of 10, 20, 10 and 10 minutes.

Reheat in microwave.)

Hi Crone. The "cola" chicken recipie is very easy and quite tasty!!
12 oz diet cola
1 C ketchup
4 Chicken breasts (no bone, no skin)

Spray a non-stick frypan and add all ingrediants. Bring to a boil and then cover/simmer for 45 min. Remove cover and let sauce thicken. Even my two young boys loved this and it was sooo easy to prepare. Enjoy!! 1chicken breast = 4 pts

I sure seemed I was hungry all day and therefore I seemed to eat all day. Supper was an after thought, as I really wanted to have pizza, but kept everything in check with a low cal meal that I love. Its really nice to know that on my 'out of control' days, I can still eat within my pt range. I thought for sure I was going off plan, but.....I still was successfull!!!
