I'm with you Meezoogirl! If we just follow the program, it works! C'mon when you think about all the money that we've spent, we owe it to ourselves to finish and do this correctly. Usually (ok, really all the time), I am the only one holding me back. Using this excuse or that excuse. And then I think, darn, I've spent all this money--make the program work. Does anyone else feel this way? And, instead of being sad, depressed or down on myself for messing up--I feel a little angry for messing up. Ok, that's just me.

My goal for this month is to make goal! Whooohoooo! They have me scheduled for the next class for making goal! Yes! I have about 12 pounds to go but they feel that I will lose it during that time.

The goals for life is to keep that weight off for good. I'm too old to go through this again and I feel like I have the tools with MRC and this forum to keep a check on myself.

Happy Friday to everyone!

I know I have done well over the last 2 1/2 months, but I need to step it up a notch. My belly isn't going away as quickly as the rest of me so I'm going to do something about it rather than complain!!

My goal for this month is to:

~drink at least 128oz of H2O
~do core training at least 3 times a week
~switch up my menu & not eat the same things everyday

Hopefully this will help me lose at least 15 pounds in August!!!

I have a goal of 50lbs total lost by August 23rd which is when I leave for vacation. To get there I will need to kick up my water intake and do more cardio.

Good idea to get those goals out there.
Mine are:
#1 Drink water, water, water - at least 100 oz a day.
#2 Go to the gym 3x a week
#3 Take the program serious and work it, want to get to a healthy weight to have more babies.
#4 Loose 10# by the end of the month.

Ok, I've readjusted my August goal. I will have only one goal for this month of 31 days. My thinking is that by that time, it will become a habit and then next month add another goal till it too becomes a habit.

My goal for this month is to drink 100 ounces of water daily. This should not be too difficult in this heat. I also would like to consume this water before 8 pm so that I'm not in the bathroom all night.

That's it--one goal--100 ounces a day.

My goals for August are:

To drink at least 112-120oz of water everyday
To get my butt in the gym at least 3-4 days per week
To lose the 24 pounds that I need to reach my 1/2 way point.
To stay On plan

I can and will do this, we all can achieve our goals this month. We're in this together!

hi everyone. i'm back for good now. i was having a hard time committing myself to this menu as it is very strict. i was able to get down to 158, but now i am back up to 163. i have maintained under 165 for a month. now i'm ready to get back on track and lose the rest of this weight. mid-sept i will have been one year on mrc. i am not going to re-enroll, but plan to stick to the green menu and do hns, but no other supplements. i can usually loose 10lbs a month if i stick to it. so my aug goals are to:
1. lose atleast 10lbs so i will be at an all time low of 153 ahhh so exciting!!
2. drink atleast 80oz water/day
3. hit the gym 3 days a week.
4. change up my food daily
5. drink 4 hns daily
6. weigh everything

I want to lose 10 more lbs in August because I'm going to see my sister in California for Labor Day weekend and I want her to be stunned when she sees me weighing 30 lbs less! :)

Wow...I can't believe its August already!! I re-enrolled on Friday for an additional 17 weeks. My goal for this month is to STAY ON PROGRAM!! I have wasted June and July, and I am going to make my goal weight by Nov. 29th! I have a problem, every time I go WI and I've had a great loss, I tend to cheat more the days following!! Then my next WI I'll only loose .5lb or stay the same! So NO MORE CHEATING MYSELF~!

Ok so get this, I've been having a terrible couple weeks with weigh ins that are 1-1.5 lbs a week at most.

So today I went in after spending the weekend feeling bothered because the scale was not changing. It's only been 2 weeks since my last Tanita, but they offered to do that today to see whats going on. It turned out that i've lost 6.5 lbs of fat in 12 days and GAINED 1 lbs of muscle and gained like 4.5 lbs of water.

So even though the scale said 174.5 she said my real weight is 170! YAY! Every time I hit these periods, I doubt anything is happening and it gets me down. Now I know I should probably ask for the tanita mid-month to help give me the mental boost. So, my ticker remains the same for today, but the end of the week should be a good one!

What great news! :) I know how easily it is to get frustrated with slow losses and not know what is going on. Now you can breathe and understand that all your hard work is paying off. 6.5 pounds of fat is a huge amount in 12 days!!!.... and you are gaining muscle! Way to go!

I think I may have to ask for a tanita at the end of the week to see if my important numbers have changed at all. Thanks for posting about your experience.

Love the monthly goal idea!

My goal for August is to lose 10 more lbs, and to drink at least 80 oz of water every day. I have SUCH a hard time with water lately.

Well, I weighed in today and lost 3 lbs which puts me at 45.5lbs lost before my vacation. I was shooting for 50 but am happy with what I accomplished.

How is everyone else doing with their August goals?

So since August is almost over I did accomplish all my goals except for one. I wanted to lose 20 pounds this month, but am happy with the 17 that I did lose. So now that's a total of 67 pounds and 53.75 inches lost since May 2010. I'm pretty happy with my results for this month.
Great job to everyone!!!

Awesome job, shannysmomma!

My goal was to lose 10 lbs this month, and I fell 1 lb shy of that - I'm not too terribly disappointed though - 9 lbs is a great number for me. :)
