Everyone is welcome to join in this challenge!

Here's how it works:
Post your starting weight (SW) and your goal weight (GW).
Come back any time to update with your current weight (CW).
The first person to reach their 5lb goal is the winner!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge.

Have fun and good luck!!!

Thus week I started working out-- took a couple weeks first to focus on food- the weight is literally melting at the moment- glad it does that at the beginning because it really gets me motivated!

Have a great fourth everyone:)

Unfortunately, tried eating as suggested from the dietician. 40/40/20 carbs, fruits & veggies/protein. Just making me gain. Not at all what I was looking for so right back to lowcarb.

Okay - I'm back. Got rid of most of those 5 lbs of post-op water weight, and just tried to maintain for a few weeks. I'm up a bit on what I was before the operation, but it's not too bad, considering there were probably more than a few ice creams, BBQs, picnics and summer cocktails in there. But I'm back with a vengeance now!
