Well I do slimfast as a part of weightwatchers. I like the shakes but I count points.

Welcome 2much! How is it going?

I did pretty good yesterday. I have the muchies due to pms, it's a rough couple of days and then I'm fine.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Welcome Bw/oP, Slimfast works for me, I wish you the best of luck. Check in when you can for support and to update everyone on your progress. :)

Did well at the BBQ last night, didn't eat too much but enjoyed myself.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I will be doing yard work all weekend, I'm bound to burn some calories that way! :carrot:

Okay I'm back on track today! I had family visiting from out of state last week and boy did I just throw caution to the wind. We ate out so many times I lost count. Not to mention drinks around the campfire everynight. Plus they are from Wisconsin and always bring the most incredible string cheese! Yum...good snack but I'm sure only one piece a day instead of the many I've had!

Well thats behind me time to get back hit it hard! Only 18 days till we leave for Disneyworld! Need to make some progress in the next 18 days! Everyone else with me?

Got your water handy? Drink up!!! Have a wonderful day!

Melissa, welcome back from your vacation. Cheese, wonderful cheese :) Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

What goal should we have for the next 18 days? We are going to HI in late July so I need a goal to get me going strong!!
Have a great day.

Honestly I'd LOVE to see a 10 lb drop, the chances of that happening?...not so good! But I can go for it anyway right? Shoot 3 lbs of it should be gone already just by drinking my water!

I did much better yesterday, only had one small time where I munched too much. AF showed up this morning and the scale showed I was down .5 lb. Drank my water like a champ! Didnt workout though, my leg is feeling better but I still feel like I should go easy on it. I really dont want to be in pain walking around Disney.

Off to a fantastic day! I hope you are having one too! 17 more days!

Melissa, let's shoot for 10! We can try! How are you doing?

I have done so much yard work this week I hope it helps!! I have stayed on my plan really well and have been drinking all my water. :D

Hi ladies!
I'm starting over and using Slimfast to jump-start this weight loss. Hopeing for 5 lbs. by my cousins wedding June 8, and would love to see 20 lbs. off by Sept. 4 but I'll be thrilled with 15!
So what kind of average WL do you guys get for a week of being OP?

Happy Friday!

Sara- Welcome! My weekly average is 1-2 lbs. I fall off the wagon occasionally so my loss is slow. My fault, not the diet. I wish you the best of luck.

Have a great day. Deb

Deb - I'll go for 10! Doesnt hurt to try right! never know what kind of miracles can happen LOL! Besides I deserve it! I have been so lazy this past week since our company has left! I need to turn that around!

Welcome Sara!! so great to see another face posting with us! In the beginning I usually do about 4 lbs a week, but I've got alot to lose too. 1 to 2 lbs is the norm I think, which is where it should be! Just stick to it, dont give up on you and you'll do great!! I hope you keep posting with us, cant wait to hear your successes!! The first week is the hardest but you can do it!! Good luck!

I managed to get in a bike ride yesterday..YaY! May just have to get the kids out and do that again today! We'll see!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Hey Slimfasters, I'm holding steady. Went a little crazy today, back on plan tomorrow.

How is everyone else doing, it's awfully quite around here ;)

Melissa, did you get your bike ride in? I haven't gone bike shopping yet, but I have been doing my research. When did bikes get so expensive!! Good grief! :bike2:

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Deb

I'm doing OK too, I was doing OK with food but last night we went out w/ friends to DQ. I can only justify what I ate by saying that we were helping them hang drywall all day, so I'm sure I could afford most of it, calorie-wise.

Deb, if you're looking for a deal on bikes, you should see if you can wait to get it until later in summer when the stores are trying to get rid of stock. My DH and I got bikes last year in August or Sept for about $100 each.

Gonna go work out - first time in over a week, since I've had a cold and have finally stopped hacking things up!

I got my bike really cheap at walmart, I think it was $53, nothing spectacular but I only needed it to go on little rides with the girls.

Keep up the good work ladies! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and remembering those goals with each choice that you make!!

How'd that workout go Skinny?

The workout went well, thanks! I want to both lose fat and get strength, so I did 15 min. on a bike and then did weights for 30 min. :) I'm planning to do this kind of routine 3x a week, and cardio 2-3x a week.

Over did it on the weekend...:devil:
Back on program today.

Melissa and Squirrel- thanks for the advise on the bikes.

Squirrel- great job on the workout, I need to get my butt in gear, we have contractors here at the house everyday and I feel like I need to hang around...that's my excuse ;) DQ is so awesome! I can't go near DQ for now!

Melissa- I don't think I will make the 10 - but any loss would be fine with me! When do you leave for Disney?

Do either of you use Fitday.com?, it has been a super reality check for me.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday! Deb :)

Good Monday Morning!!

Deb - Yes, I use fitday off and on, I think it really does make me aware of eating during the day when I use it, sometimes it gets to be too time consuming though. Its a great program! I doubt I'm making 10 too, but I can get as close as I can right? Thats all that matters!

Squirrel - excellent job on that workout!! Keep it up! I think your routine sounds superb!! Make sure you take measurements rather than just go by the scale cuz you are gonna build that muscle up and your losses will show more in the measurements.

I did pretty great this weekend. Didnt overdue it at all. Could have skipped the Twisted Teas but they fit in calorie wise so I'm okay with it. 11 more days till Disney! We leave on the 8th!

Have a fantastic day today!! Stay strong!! We can do this!

I used fitday for awhile, but I'm much better at keeping my paper journal. I havn't done measurements, but I do have a few pairs of skinny jeans that I'll be using to guage my progress. :)

Disney, I'm so jealous!!! My DH has never been there. My parents want to go there as a family for their 35th ann (in 5 years). I suggested now, but my SIL is going back to grad school and my youngest brother just joined the pipefitters so both my brothers will be poor for awile! But hug Mickey for me!

Hello. I've started slim-fast and hoping it will work for me. I tend to eat on the run and therefore do not always eat healthfully. I'm so glad to find others using slimfast!

Hello Idrial! Welcome!! Slimfast is definetly great if you are always on the go. Good luck to you! Come back and keep us up to date on your successes!! You can do this!

I had a pretty good day yesterday, could have been better, could have been worse. Its so dreadfully hot here and no a/c so doing lots of sweating LOL...not sure if that helps or not! Helps get that water down thats for sure!

Have a great day all!

I'm doing pretty good. I have been working out almost daily which is impressive for me. Hope all is well with everyone.

Good for you, 2much, on working out! I've been keeping it up too. Helps to have joined a gym w/ DH, whenever money is involved it guarantees he'll keep it up! LOL

Hi Everyone-

Just checking in, haven't lost but holding steady. I'm down to one shake a day, usually in the AM.

What is everyone elses plan?

Do any of you use the slimfast website for your meal planning? I do, I have to have someone/something tell me what to eat at this point!! I can't be left on my own to make my own choices!! :dizzy::D:dizzy:

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
