I go on holiday 4 weeks today. I have been doing quite well but I'd like to set myself a challenge by the time I go away.
I really want to lose 8lbs by the time I go. Thats 2 lbs a week. I'll be so so proud of myself if I manage to do it :D
Starting weight: 216
Current weight: 216

good luck!! you can do itt!!! I have my first wedding dress fitting that same week and I would love to lose 8 pounds by then too! keep us updated!!

Ok I will do. Thanks for the support. Would be so good to feel even a tad slimmer and healthier going on holiday. We had a look at things to do there last night, and we're going to goto this huge waterpark, and spend a day walking round a zoo. Also, we've found a big indoor play area that we think the babby will love, and I want to be able to chase her round it and not get so worn out!
Can't wait for my holiday :D

You have a great achievable goal!!! You can do it!!!

I think it'll probably help if I keep a record of what I eat on here, so if things don't go to plan I'll be able to see where things have gone wrong...
So day one of my 4 wk plan:
Breakfast: Smoothie (one 330ml glass) made from strawberries, banana and greek yogurt - I made a jug full to keep in the fridge for the week. (161)
Mid-morning snack: Handful or grapes (52)
Lunch: Cauliflower mash with one triangle of dairylea light (116). Plus 8 crab sticks (115).
Tea: Lasagna (378) and side salad (17)
Dessert: another Smoothie. (161)
Supper: Medium pita bread (124) cut into fingers with salsa dip (25). Plus one boiled egg (68).

I'm using fitday to monitor my calorie intake. And I feel like I've eaten alot today. But even adding my supper for tonight I won't have even had 1100 calories all day. Do you think fitday is adding things up wrong? Or do you think I really haven't eaten that much?
03-28-2011, 02:19 PM
sorrie, i do not know anything about fitday. sometimes i use calorieking to see how many calories are in the food i am eating. i find that they have a lot of options and varieties.
just wanted to say, GOOD LUCK!!! i was reading on another thread, that one lady regretted not taking pictures of her progress in a diary form, thought i would suggest it to you so that it could be motivation in the future for you to see how well you have done!

I've read that thread too. And I recently bought a digital camera so I might try taking a photo everytime I lose 10lbs or something. I think I would like to be able to see my progress :) Thanks for suggesting it.

Aww thanks guys. I'm trying so hard and I reeeaalllly wanna meet my goal for holiday. I decided to walk the 2.5 miles to work instead of getting a bus, and I've just finished work (at McDonalds) and even though I'm really hungry (my tummy is grumbling - I can hear it) I opted to not get a cheeseburger even though I really want one. I'm going to wait and have some carrot sticks and houmous when I get home :)

Thats a very good goal! I set mine pretty high but really there was nothing big in my life happening that I wanted it done by so I thought well when I go to this Keith urban concert in July I want to have lost 40lbs I know thats a lot to ask but hey maybe maybe with lots of good eating and hard work it can be done! I would love to put on some cute clothes and feel good when I go!
03-31-2011, 04:54 PM
I'm sure thats possible! Just keep going. I've found that recording everything I eat where people can see it is driving me to keep going.
