Hi.

This challenge is open to everyone!

The challenge is to see who loses 5 lbs first and then they get all sorts of nice things said about them and to start a new thread with their name.

So post your Starting and Goal weights and may the best lady or gentleman win!

SW: 187.0lbs
GW: 182.0lbs

I am not going to hang about on this one.

Ian - pizza happens. As long as it doesn't happen often you're gonna be right back showing losses again. I'd bet there was a fair amount of sodium in it, and you'll have a whoosh soon!

sue - yes, I'm back on track and ALMOST over the insane carb cravings that started when I kicked myself out of ketosis.

I want to abdicate! We just have to BELIEVE that it is just a blip! Just a pot hole in the highway of life. I believe that it will go away.. Maybe just a test of our resolve? I don't feel any heavier... but my jigglies are not as jiggly this morning..

Ian, Sue...sorry about the gains! I don't think I've ever shown a gain of more than a pound in one day, but by the same token, I rarely show a loss of more than a pound in one day. Now, if you want to have a contest for who can hover right around the same weight for the longest time...I'm a shoe-in to win!!

Good loss so far, SuperHeroTeacher. Hi to all I've missed and good luck to everyone!

I did see a loss yesterday, although I walked more than 13 km and didn't eat much. That wasn't planned...just the way the day turned out. My calves are a little sore this morning! Still, I'm down 1.5 lbs, net, since the challenge began. Can't wait until my CW starts with the numbers "15"...

I have a question for the group, how consistent are your scales? My scale gives me a slight different reading every time I step on it. Is that normal? The numbers vary anywhere from .5 to 3 pounds if I step on it, get off, and immediately get back on. I wonder if all scales do this or if mine is defective.

Thanks for the suggestions on the scale. I went out yesterday and bought a new one. I need more consistent readings since I weigh daily. No change on the scale for me today though. There is always tomorrow, but I'm beginning to feel like I'll be a hundred years old before I reach onederland.

I'm finally back down after my bounce. I didn't realize that deli meat had so much sodium. It was going to be my goto for protein, I guess I'll go back to HB eggs.

Yay Tuscany on the 150s! It's great to see a new decade!

Thanks everyone for your support. I won a game of squash last night. The first time I have done that.

Anyway, I am down 0.6lbs today and that is nice as it puts me back on the low I reached last week. Let's hope I can follow through tomorrow into the 186s.

Good to see you losing again, Ian...but not so good for you, Sue. I hope you both start losing consistently again soon.

This morning, I lost a bit more. I'm losing at a snail's pace, but at least I'm losing.

Good luck to everyone else!

Thank you Sue!! I know I can always count on your for encouragement. I hear what you're saying about being frustrated. Have you thought about going back to induction for a few days? I am also very frustrated right now. I should be losing 3-5 pounds per week on the IP diet, but I've been losing 1 a week lately. I need to revisit the plan and change things up a bit to see if I get the scale moving a little faster.

Oh gosh.. I know what you mean too... I actually looked thru my food journal all the way back to January.. and I am actually eating more on plan then way back when... So no clue... except I am walking longer when I do.. just not as often and its humid now... I am also drinking more water than tea... Just don't know.. But I can deal with it.. if I can at least lose 6 lbs a month.. So far this month .25 lbs NOT good! LOL Maybe I have a fake TOM coming... Can only hope! Tho I am also going to try the IAN Drink Hoppy beer (not Atkins approved but gotta do what you gotta do) for 3 nights and not eat any dinner and see if that breaks the water hold... Keep your fingers crossed! :)

Way to go SuperHeroTeacher...just a little bit more and you're there!

Seems like this month is a slow month for most others. I feel for you...and I hope you soon get back to the types of losses you're used to seeing.

As for me, I'm losing about 1 lb to 1.5 lbs per week, which is what I've been losing since I started, even though I stick to 1,200-1,300 calories per day with NO cheating...the joys of being 55. On the plus side, my weight IS coming off and I'm feeling and looking better every month.

So going to change er up and try the IAN diet starting tonight for 3 days. Eat Breakfast (2 eggs, sausage and 1 slice cheese) Lunch (Lettuce, Boars Head Turkey or Ham, shredded cheese and 1 tbsp ranch) then 2 beers for dinner... Lets see if the beer replacement for the (taco salad, Grilled Chix salad, Low carb tortilla pizza etc) makes the difference! I HAVE HOPE for the electrical ZAP to my system! LOL

I am having surgery on Monday (reconstruction after mastectomy), so I don't know how well I'll be able to stick to the diet while on recovery. I'm sure I'll gain a few pounds from the iv fluids, but they should come off easily. I will check back with you guys soon.

By the way, I lost 0.5 pounds yesterday, so my current weight is 199.1.

I didn't weigh today. I woke up late and had to be at swim champs an hour away by 7am. I was going to weigh when I got home, but I decided it would be a bad idea considering I can feel the water retention from being in the 100 degree heat all day. I drank at least 2 gallons of water today (totally not exaggerating) and I feel like about a gallon of it is still hanging out in the form of bloat!

Maybe tomorrow will be the day I win this puppy!

I saw a hint of 252 on my scale, but not sure it will stick. I usually get a tease and then it is back up once before settling. fingers crossed

Hi gang!

I'm home from the hospital and not feeling too bad, just some pain, but that's expected. I'm not going to worry about my weight this week. I just wanted to say hi and wish you all great loses!!

I'm not even on the race anymore! I'm having a ROUGH week! Up to 215.8 today. Still feeling some bloat from the heat and some bad food choices while at training this week :(

Lets go Sue, Ian and Tuscany! One of you has to win this thing tomorrow!

Wow, sorry to hear that SuperHeroTeacher. I thought you were going to get this one! But not me either, at least yet. No change today.

This has got to be one of the longest 5lb challenges ever.

But if it gets to the weekend ladies, you'd best hold on to your hats!

Popping back on here as I'm out the door...

I wanted to apologize for being a bad board buddy. I work for a government entity and am not allowed on the Internet unless I sneak a minute on my phone, which is why I'm always so short--because it's hard to type on the phone. Anyway, I feel like I'm not being as supportive as you all are and I'm going to try harder to make time to get on here and be a better friend! :-)

Also, do I start the new thread?

PrettyMom: Glad to hear all went well. You're smart to focus on getting better...you can focus on your weight soon enough.

Yes, cldwv. I'd say you've won...unless someone else comes along today who has also made goal...not sure how that works. In any event, congratulations!

I inched a little closer, but I still had another 1.25 lbs to go...painful!
