Yea!!! I signed the 20 lb board sign yesterday AND even went past that mark!! My goal was to lose 2 lbs to make me 20 lbs even but instead I lost 3.5 lbs for a grand total of 21.5 lbs LOST!!!! :carrot: I'm soooo thrilled! I tried on 2 dresses that were my "first goal" dresses and they're too BIG! Now, I have to have them taken in! Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! I'm lovin' this!

Keep on going when you don't think you can or will...........you can do this, too!

Congrats!! How wonderful!

Also, just thought I'd add a thank you. Your post was very timely. I'm struggling with cravings horribly tonight. My house is loaded with cotton candy and cakes that my kids won at halloween parties this weekend. Everyone's in bed and I keep walking past the goodies. I thought I'd check on board before cheating and here was your post. You inspired me to chew some gum instead.

Great job and thanks for the motivation! Keep up the good work!

Great job girl!

I said this before, but, I will repeat, whoever thought of the signing of the board is a genius. It makes us feel so good!

Shopgirl,
Congratulations. Doesn't it feel great. For an extra boost pick up something that weighs 20 pounds....isn't it heavy? Just think that is how much you lost.
AWESOME.

3ducksmom,
I have two teenage girls at home. One works at a Chocolate Store where they make their own chocolate, it is hard to resist so I know how you feel. I just think of all the empty calories in it and it makes it so much easier to ignore.

I love this site! Y'all are so encouraging! Oh, and Magnoliagirl, way to go! As much as I LOVED signing the 20 lb board, the 10 lb board was just SO special! It was like, "Hey, I'm really doing this!" That was the best feeling ever! Sounds like you're going to know what I mean VERY soon! :)

Well I did not do it, did not sign the 10# board. Did everything I was suppose, to, did the medi quick this week, only a .5# loss :cry::cry::cry::cry:

Well so back to my green menu, no more vanilla wafer bars, they really were
good. Need to go buy some eggs......

Don't be sad, magnoliagirl!! I posted a note on another page that told you that I weighed in today and only lost 0.5 this week on MQ, too. BUT, I got my measurements and that was encouraging. Look at your non scale victories and keep going! You're gonna sign that board by the end of next week! KEEP GOING! :carrot::carrot::carrot::carrot: (one happy carrot for each of your sad faces above)!

Congrats to all of you who signed the 20# board. I'm right behind you. Thought I would make it for my last WI, But only lost .5 lb. So I did not meet my October goal, but I feel good, I'm not hungry, and I will get there.
Reading about your success lets me know that It will work.
I love this site too.

Roadqueen....this must be the week of the 0.5 lb loss! LOL! The week after signing the board, I only lost 0.5 b/c I was on the medi quick challenge through my center. I think my body revolted! LOL! I expected a huge loss b/c that's what they promise but I wasn't entirely shocked b/c I had such a good loss last Saturday of 3.5 lbs to sign the board. So, alas....I press on! :)
