Jodi & Fellow Challengers-

I'm down 8 of my 12 pounds so far!! Like I said, I was having the SBD "beginners luck." I imagine that's a lot of water weight. The real work is starting now!

Oops... Don't think I'm going to make it. Down only one of my 8 for the month. Back on Phase 1 right now, so hopefully I can get most of the way by the end of the month. I think 8 might have been too much for one month since I'm only trying for 15 to 20 more total. We'll see what happens!

I need a kick in the butt. I don't think I am going to make my goal. But I will try. :)

I don't think I will make it I am only down 1 of my 8. I need some advice the only time I went off the plan was Easter and that was only a bit of stuffing and 3 small chocolates, I have a brisk walk every night for 30 minutes (the last 15 minutes uphill)

Just 2.5 for me so far. I have been working hard as I can but it is slow going as usual. Any time my weight goes down and not up it is an accomplishment, though. :smug:

I'm down 2 of 5. Considering I haven't seen the scale move since phase 1 over a month ago, I'm happy. Does anyone have any good advice for how not to gain weight when you go out of town for a week, eating out every meal and being poor on top of it? If I could afford it, there are all sort of great restaurants in Sioux Falls, but I'm on a McDonald's dollar menu budget. :p

South Dakota chick...not sure where you are going but I would think that Wendy's would be a good choice you can get chilli and a salad. Subway for an Atkins wrap and you any truck stop resturant would have if nothing else eggs you could get a veggie omlet. I would think they would be reasonably priced.

I've lost the five - with the help of Liquid Plumber and Rotot Rooter! I am just hoping it stays gone for the rest of the month.

I've had a better month than I thought I would. My goal is to lose 10 this month. I was hesitant at first because last month wasn't great but I'm feeling pretty encouraged.

You all sound like you are doing great. I love the encouragement I here. The great ideas and the recipes. yum

I am going to drink more water and skip my nitely lo carb ice cream, that should help...I have been walking 4 plus miles a day this week at local metro park with my son in a jog stroller...I did do a series of lunges and squats along the way..They have one of those exercise trails there that I really want to try...the ones where you jog to each exercise board and then do the exercise on the board then jog on to the next. The weather has been so nice that I am encouraged to get out....

It will be tough to get 5 more pounds off but I am going to see how close I can get....Keep up the good work ..any loss is a victory!!!!

I would like to say that I am doing a great job and right on track but...:nose:

I better modify my challenge goal from 10 to 5. At the beginning of the month it seemed doable. I guess I forgot the "do" part of it. Now it's the 19th and I haven't even gotten started. For Shame!!! :nono:

Thanks for the reminder and the gentle kick in the pants! ;)

Whaahhh!! I'm still stalled at the starting gate. :stress: I think there's just been to much upheaval in my routine the past couple of weeks. I resolve to do better.

Hi, guys.

Stalled. Off program, too. I've been training like crazy for a 10K on Saturday, so far I've got my time down to 55 minutes or so. Lots of weight training, situps, and pushups. I've been hungry for real food, and eating it....bad I know....but hungry with my exercise. Trimmed another inch off my waist, so not too worried....

Good going girls!!! I'll be back OP after my race. Its the Run Against Pain for UC Davis. :cool:
