Default Fastest to lose 5 lbs #7 (Telorida won last)

Ok, everyone. Let's stay committed over the weekend and see if we can have another winner early next week.

A 5 lbs loss is our goal. Let's do it together!

(You can post starting weight, or just tell us along the way how much you have lost, we all support each other)

First to get to 5 lbs starts the next challenge thread!


Here are my stats:

Start weight: 303.4 (5/11/2013)

Goal weight: 298.4

edit: I see I skipped number 7. Ooops! I unfortunately cannot edit the thread title. Boo!

Notes from the last thread:

IanG: Too funny that you and Sue are "linked"! That cracked me up this morning! I'm glad the scale is moving in the right direction for you again!

Sue: You predicted it and it was true! Can you predict me a winner again, say, on Monday? lol! Since you were talking about Disney W I noticed you live near Central FL. I grew up down there, in Winter Park, and my uncle lived over nearer the east coast, in Deltona.

Happierme: I hope you had a great, successful day, yesterday!

Lulu: I think you're right about the indulgences - they are part of life and it's about "enjoying the journey", as you said. But between Feb and April, my indulgences were coming at the rate of one or two full off-plan meals each weekend. Not "just a bite" of this or that. I was rationalizing that the slightest thing would throw me out of ketosis, so I better go out with a bang and "get back to it on Monday". All in the name of enjoying the journey. So something had to give.

But enough about that... what's next for you, now that you've reached Onderland?



---

Like I was saying to Lulu, I refocused myself on my goal this month, after having a rock bottom experience while my husband and I were away on our honeymoon.

Still, I don't expect perfection out of myself. One of my guests brought homemade peanut butter cups, so you better believe I tried one. I also made honey mustard dip, so I tasted it with one pretzel. But I also drank a lot of water, and ate tons of veggies with buffalo chicken dip/cheese dip.

I was pretty surprised by my weight, this morning. When I finally got to bed last night, I felt really bloated and icky. I was so sure I was going to be up a little bit. Guess I was wrong.

Weekends tend to suck for my water intake - let's see if I can do better than usual!

Good luck, everyone!

Now its MY TURN!! Getting greedy here to win..... Need to see my name up on that thread (lolololol)

SW 267 I am glad I can use today's as I feel a BIG swoosh today and tonight. DISNEY was HOT HOT HOT & Humid and we had a BIG TIME thunderstorm and it followed me all the way home and I hate driving in rain when you can't distinguish the side of the road and the rain ... scaarrrrryyyyy so my adrenalin was pumping... Almost bumped into Peter Noone (how about that Ian) he was in Disney as part of the summer flower concerts and he came into ESPN zone with his ear buds on and grabbed my shoulder to let me know he wanted to get by to the back part of the restaurant... Too Cool and Weiland (painter) was also at Disney Boardwalk to sign autographs and talk to people (he does alot of Sea/fish etc paintings and sculptures)

GW 262

I am so proud of you Telorida ! and Lulu is such an inspiration and IAN Well we are linked.. so I saying right here.. you and I are gonna have a GOOD number tomorrow.... I am predicting that...

Telorida... I actually live in Port St. Lucie about 45 minutes North of West Palm Beach close to the Indian River.(Intracoastal waterway).. Tho with the rain that is beating down my roof... I could be in the middle of the river now I think! lol I do know Deltona and Winter Park tho... UCF close to WP and one of my favorite towns of Casadega is close to Deltona You grew up in a wonderful place of Florida....

Thanks Tel and, Sue, glad you had a nice time mingling with the stars!

You'll be down today because I am to the tune of 1.4lbs. I am so back in the groove again. I am going out to a fish restaurant tonight so I am going real easy on breakfast and lunch to make room. Fish is pretty easy for me to stay OP with anyway. I fly back to Ankara tomorrow where I stay until Thursday. After that, I go to Belgium. Complicated.

Starting weight: 220.4lbs

Telorida - Congrats on the challenge!! I have to change my tracker at some point but I'm not ready to do it yet - my final goal is 153-160 but it seems so far away that I need mini goals. The lowest weight I've had is 178 as an adult and even that seems difficult. Going to aim for 188 - 11 pounds and then revisit my tracker.....(copied from my post in Memorial Day Challenge) I am a slow loser....My goal is 1 pound during this challenge while everyone races to 5!! On average I lose a little under 1.5 pounds per week.

Wannaskipandlaugh and Ian More good news is coming your way!!!

Welcome RoseRed !!

Rosered Glad you have come to join us...!!

SW 267
5/12 265 OH YES! Lost all the rest of the cake and an extra 1/2
GW 262

OH IAN... We did lose that gain telepathically I think. I love my scale this morning. So Tomorrow...l another 1/2 - 1lb? I sure do think so. Your "biz" trip sounds like alot of fun and I hope that you are having fun around all the meetings < o > the evil eyes are keeping you safe (they are a good luck charm)

LuluNH... loosing in small increments is a good way to look at things as the final goal does not look so far off.

Happierme... I bet you have a nice swoosh coming your way!

Telorida... Well I know that you are going to make this a race with Ian and ME TOO this time... Rosered is an unknown and Northernchick hasn't checked in yet... so we will have a good race I am sure Very competitive here I am thinking LOVE IT!!

Happy Mother's day to all of you who are moms (to children or animal friends as I am) and to your moms...

Telorida: I read your post about hitting rock bottom. I totally know that feeling, and as much as experiencing that sucked, it'll be great motivation. I use my memories of mortifying/ sad moments to push through workouts and to force myself to recommit to plan when I fall off the wagon. And you did SO well this past week, so I have absolute faith that your success will continue and one day you'll look back on Jamaica and laugh =)

Hope everyone else has a happy Sunday!
