Sue was having a bad week so I won the last challenge so she could start again.

Fastest to lose 5lbs gets all the bragging rights and to start a new thread.

Let's rip 5lbs up.

SW: 196.6lbs
GW: 191.6lbs

I looked for the "Slowest to lose 5 lbs while still remaining true to one's diet" thread, but I couldn't find it. So, I'll try this one instead, knowing full well I have only two chances of winning: slim and none. Win or lose, I'll be happy once I've lost 5 lbs, since I'll then be out of the 160's...yeah!

I join, but I`ll start tomorrow, we had a huge party last night here at Barcelona and I indulged like crazy, 2 ice creams + churros (a typical catalan food), so I didnt weigh today, tomorrow Ill tell you my starting weight, although I know it will be high, the water weight Ive got today is ridiculous, my ankles are to laugh at!

Sue is in the lead, way to go Sue!!

I went to a dinner party last night. I tried really hard not to cheat, but the hostess noticed that I wasn't eating very much, so she came over to me and insisted that I try her desserts. I had to take a couple of bites because I didn't want to be rude, but I was feeling so guilty. I couldn't skip this party, and I didn't want to announce my diet to the group. Nothing I can do now but start over.

Hi guys! Boy did I just want to stay in bed all morning!! Woke up, weighed myself. At 211.4 this AM. Walked five miles after work yesterday and NEW, I did the organic, virgin coconut oil in my tea yesterday so I think that may have been the push.

Today's weigh in:

I forgot to mention... it was so weird. I got up at around 4AM to go to the bathroom and I stepped on the scale and it was way up. Like 2 pounds up. Then I get up later, get on the scale and bingo. Boggles the mind. Anyway, it's so bizarre that I hit the number perfectly. I'm going to keep up the long walks and definitely the coconut oil. I'm researching fat bomb too.

You guys are so nice and supportive. All of you! I want to thank you for letting a newbe in the game.
