My goal for this challenge was 188, but I weighed this morning and am already at 187.5.

So I will lower my goal to 182. That's just a little over a pound a week for the remaining 5 weeks till V-Day.

I think I am now at 10.5 lbs loss since joining this challenge. Yippee!!

I am off induction and on level 2. This is always the hard part for me, adding just a little carbs. Once I'm on a routine with the 20 carbs I do pretty well with that, but now I need to make more decisions and that sometimes makes things hard for me.

I have a whole new slick system on my pocket PC I've been using for induction, so I hope it works as well for level 2. And I bought Carpender's cookbook with 500 low-carb recipes and am eager to try some new recipes. I've cooked 2 new things this week for dinner, and both turned out well. Much better than my attempts with low-carb recipes a year ago.

I hope everyone else is doing well and getting through this winter safely. It has been quite a mess around Seattle.

Happy New Year!

i won't be weighing again for 2 weeks (TOM) but can't wait to see what happens then. i *hope* i will have met or exceeded my V-day challenge weight.

i can't wait to hit 179 again. i love hitting that milestone - it seems once i'm down that low the rest just gets easy.

I haven't posted in ages. My computer at work still isn't back on the network, so I don't have internet access. Plus, I used to post at lunchtime and my computer, plus all the others that I have access to are on high desks or tables with no chairs. I guess someone in management decided it was "unproductive" to sit down to do data entry or anything else! Anyway, I took a short "holiday" from the program, but am back on and am losing again. I'll post my weigh-in tomorrow A.M. before I leave for work.
You guys are all doing great. Wow! 74 pounds!

I added my level... I'm taking it the 1-4 means as follows:

1 = Induction or Level 1
2 = Level 2
3 = Ongoing Weight Loss (OWL) or Level 3
4 = Maintenance

Is that right?

"Technically" the levels are:
1= Induction
2= Ongoing weight loss
3= Pre-maintenance
4= Maintenance

I'm not 'frustrated' but getting 'flustered'---I keep bouncing around; hit a low point then over 2 weeks I go back up & down, up & down, and finally settle at the low point after a couple weeks...finally today I was back to 203...is it just me, or do we ALL do this??? Anyhow, holding steady again here with none to add----YET (thinking positively here!)

thanks for the clarification of the levels...

don't know if you're still cycling due to TOM (with or without periods), but i refuse to weigh two weeks out of every four for this reason.

i know the weight gain is not "real" and will go away as TOM moves on, but it discourages me so i don't even want to see it go up OR stay the same.

so my routine is:
Sun-Sat TOM - no weighing
Sun - following Tues (1-1/2 weeks) no weighing
Wed - weigh
Following Wed - weigh

this first weighing puts me smack in the middle of the non-TOM 3 weeks and is a better representation of my "real" weight loss. i seem to be able to weigh the following Wed too and still see loss.

I know we're all different, so others may not have this experience. and not everyone gets as discouraged by the weight gain. but i just feel so much better if i leave those 2 weeks out.

Where'd I go on the list? Adding me back in plus 1 pound down! Ugh! I'm compulsive about the scale, too. Anytime I'm in the upstairs bathroom, I want to strip down and check my weight. For me it's good though. I like knowing what my average "range" is so I don't freak out if it looks a little up at 3:00 in the afternoon.

I know I've been MIA for quite awhile. I hadn't added my name back to the list after the crash as I had picked up a few pounds after Christmas. Anyway I've lost those few plus one more. I'm not sure how much I've lost since this challenge started so I'll only add the one pound that I've lost from my pre-Christmas weight.

I know that it is late in the game, but I think there are 3 more weeks left until V-day. Could I still join in with you all? I really need the incentive right now.

My VERY short term goal would be to shave off about 6 #s, so 177 would be my V-Day goal. Adding myself to the list, I hope I am not be presumptuous.

Well, I broke my "plateau" a few weeks ago and dropped that 5.5 lbs, and have been doing the back & forth, up & down thing since, FINALLY settled back at the lowest weight now... :S At this point I doubt that I will make my V-Day goal, even though it's 'only' another 9 pounds...I so hate getting "stuck"...TRYING to get it off, but things just aren't cooperating with my efforts! Anyhow, I AM trying, y'all bear with me, as I bear with MYSELF! HOPEFULLY I will start back on the losing trend SOON!

I'm having a meltdown....a FAT meldown!!!! Met my goal of 183 (-15) this morning, so now I'm going to bump it up and try to lose another 4 pounds before the chocolate hearts surface! Wish me luck!

hi linda lee, to join a challenge all you have to do is say you want in, copy the last posted list, add your name to the bottom, and update your weight loss when you weigh. re-total the bottom when you add your latest loss.

the numbers in parenthesis are the level that person is on. 1=induction, 2=ongoing weight loss, etc.

welcome!

Remember, weight loss is not a consistent thing.

I'm down 1 pound for the week. This could have something to do with not doing my pilates or bellydancing AT ALL :mad: Bad Star!!!

But still, 2 pounds away from not being overweight according to the stupid BMI. I'm sooooooooooo excited!!!

I did really good yesterday until they served the buttered garlic bread sticks with my Chicken Ceaser Salad (No courtons) ......But I figure if I weigh in tomorrow with no weight gain it was a good weekend :cb: and on the bright side I still have 13 days to lose 6.5 pounds ....I can do it <hope hope hope> :cbg: <hey you think they could make this smily face without the bun??? >

Wow! Looks like we're all doing great. I get to put down a 5 pound loss myself. That's over 2 weeks, though, as I got so sick of the darn scale not moving, I didn't weigh last week. Look at us! I had given up making my goal of 183, but it looks like with a little luck, it's still possible.

I think someone did accidentally cut and past the wrong posting, because mine is off, too! I'm doing some quick math.

All who follow: The total is now accurate for the losses indicated next to your names. If you need to change your loss to correct it, please change the total also!

All right! I may just make this one, even after deciding to lower my goal. I've become absolutely addicted to oven-fried chicken with pork rind crust, and it seems to be doing the trick! Down one more....

i updated it for you lindalee.
it looks like you may be copying a set of numbers older than the latest post... i copied the one just before yours (mine) and changed your weight loss. the one you had copied didn't have the most recent weight loss figures for everyone.

just fyi - no big deal, cause we'll always be able to figure it out (i think!). i hope this makes sense!

I thought I copied the one above me but I guess not. I thought it was strange that it had 4 pounds for me when I knew it should be 5 ...humm that should have been a hint :dizzy:
Unfortunatly ....I can't change mine. Unless I lose 5 pounds by Saturday I wont make it :cry: But then on to :lucky: St. Patty's Day !!! Always hopeful.

i will be on vacation and won't be weighing on valentine's day, but i am one pound away from my goal. regardless of what i weigh on the 14th, i will consider myself a winner! 19 lbs since i started this challenge, and perhaps a tad bit more. i, too, am very very pleased.

next for me is the easter challenge. thank you, everyone, for all the wonderful support. this challenge has really been fun.

Well I didn't "make goal" but I'll consider it a success anyhow, having lost 9.5 of my 13.5# goal, even with the late start in the challenge...It WAS a success as this was the most I've lost in a month/6 week period since induction...
