I lost my first 10 pounds since I started November 11th!
I was teeter-tottering between 8-10# loss for over a week and now I'm going between 10-12# loss!:carrot: I also like the way that my jeans fit now! I can't wait until I can share my next 10# loss with you all!

I just noticed that my weight under my picture is wrong. This is from a long....time ago. I wish that I weighed 222# right now! I will change it so that it shows my "honest" weight. =)

Thanks Lizza & RRB2! I'm again, staying the same and am at a plateau. At least I'm not gaining any of the weight back again! I can't wait to see another loss though.

Thanks, Rainy, Theox & NoMoreKnit! I lost another pound, so that makes it a 12# loss since November 11th!:carrot: Also, I wanted to share a FREE App that I'm using on my Android programmed cell phone. It's called Lose It! It is AWESOME! It keeps track on what I eat every day, how many calories I have left for the day, how many cal's I need to eat to lose 2# p/wk, When my TARGET date is to reach goal, etc., etc., etc... I think you can also like it on Facebook and also download the App by going to Check it out if you're not using this yet. It's like having a personal weight loss coach! :cheer:

Hopped on the scale this morning and lost another pound!:cb: ( 13# loss so far. ) I'm now into another decade of numbers! Seven more pounds to go and I can post that I lost 20#. ( I can't wait, but something tells me that I will have a set-back on December 24-25th!) I guess I will need to pedal a little bit more on my recumbent bike during that time then.

Congrats on the extra pound lost! :D ^_^ I, too, slightly fear this coming weekend when it comes to calories!

Thanks, Diet Dawn & JM14534!

I've been MIA for a few weeks, but am happy to post another weight loss! At first, I gained 2.5# between Christmas & New Years. I went off plan for a few days during the big holidays, but jumped back on the wagon starting on 1/1/12. I'm excited to report that I've lost the 2.5# I gained over the holidays. PLUS another 3.5#!, which brings me to a total of 17.5# lost! I'm hoping in the next week to finally reach a 20# weight loss! I still have a large amount to lose after that 2nd goal, but this will give me a jump-start to the finish line.

Just for the fun of it today, I went into my pantry and pulled out 17.5# of food and put it in a bag with handles. I then lifted this bag up and was amazed on how heavy that bag felt! I decided to carry the bag of food up and down the stairs and I couldn't believe how tiring it was! Each time I lose 5#, I'm going to add it to the bag. (The items I chose to remove from my pantry to put in the bag are 5# bags of flour/sugar & a 2# bag of brown sugar. The last pound that I needed to put in the bag was a 1# package of frozen meat. I did put that back in the freezer for safe keeping.) It's hard to believe that I'm still lugging around at least an extra 65# that doesn't belong on my 5 Ft. 5" frame! (Actually it's 100 extra pounds on my frame if I want to get to my lowest for the suggested weight!) I'm in a great mind-set, so I KNOW I will lose this weight once and for all!
