i gooooot into the food/booze last night. and it looks like i am going to do the same tonight.

going to go do some yoga this morning though and you know, offset a little bit.

i think my biggest issue is not binging so really, i am taking it one step at a time.

Great plan, Stimkovs! That's all we really can do- take it one step at a time! What kind of yoga are you doing?

Cantstopme- Way to go on your walking and the water! Keep it up!

PinkHurricane- 6lbs?! Nice!!! Can't wait to see what you'll get come first WI!

TOM is here and I'm up to 167 today. Joy!!! Still on plan with food and Insanity today!

Checking in and checking out for a while. I'm still at my starting weight but off on holiday for a couple of weeks today, so see you all on the other side! Good luck with your first two weigh ins everyone.

I'm 5'7, starting weight is 188 and goal is 160.

My first year anniversary will be the week before Halloween and that is also the time frame I wanted to reach my goal, 100lbs lost. I am in!

Hi all, just joining you. I love the idea of holidays for challenges.

I'm on a long slow weight loss journey and could use some motivation to step up my game just a little. Aiming for 250 by Halloween. Although that's slow, it would be a real landmark for me.

Looking forward to getting to know you all. Let's get losing.

I had this weird spell today where I almost kinda 'lost control' over eating. Everytime I would catch myself eating, I would put it down or throw it away.

Ended the day at 1000 calories, but it was a real struggle to do so. It was so weird to just keep finding myself picking up something to eat mindlessly.

That is one thing I haven't done for a bit.

Just odd. Still on plan though.

I'm in! I think the goal I have set is slightly unrealistic as it depends on my losing at least 1 lbs a week which is not always a certainty for me, but once I get to that weight I will be under my original intended goal weight and only just over a stone (14 lbs) away from my current goal weight! Gah, the excitement! I love Halloween so very much, and I am looking forward to all the healthy changes that I will have been able to make by then.

I only wish this challenge had started a week earlier so it would have looked really good to kick my time off with the 2 lbs weight loss I had today! Oh well, I'll just have to try harder for next week!!!

Ok I am in. I am not sure what my starting weight is because my official weigh in is tomorrow. I know my goal is 250. I hope that is not unrealistic!

amandie- thanks! i do bikram, which is more of a cardio-butt-kicking/ my meditation then the kind of yogas that were all used to hearing about. it's my little calm place, and i practice as much as possible.

pretty impressed with you for still doing the food/insanity thing around TOM.
literally, flood gates opened up last night- sry tmi haha and i'm pretty much fetal trying to not gnaw off my own arm. hoping that a 600 cal breakfast will fill me up till i can eat a big bad peice of meat later and call it a day.


Vortex_VVV - 250 sounds like a reasonable, achievable goal! you can do it!

Arrwillia isn't it awesome to have something to work for/ and a visible reward ?

Katydid77 i seriously hope that's a type-o. 1000 calories? I would be looking to eat everything, and then the door of the fridge!

EskaDee uh oh, looks like you set a precedent! guess now you need to match it!

JustB1027 you can do it!


-------
again, floodgates, my body seems to think that it's funny that every time i go to a music festival (Especially camping ones) that its tom season. seriously body?

anyways, thankfully this festival is not camping, but still has all of the same "facilities" so uh, double thankfully today is the last day.

i did have an awesome lunch yesterday, and a not so awesome dinner and a lot of the other food group (vodka lol). i ate the SALTIEST chinese food ever at the festival yesterday, and saw somewhere between 184 and 185 this morning, which is nice. i am hoping to clock it in at 184 flat on the 11th! that would be a nice little water weight loss!

Wow, this is going to be one tough thread to keep up with!!!!

Welcome everyone who just joined! The last challenge was awesome. The spreadsheet really helps you feel accountable. I knew that I double guessed decisions knowing that I was going to have to weigh and check in here. Hopefully it will be that way for all of you too I am super excited....I hope to be to my final goal by the end of this challenge, which is crazy!!! I can't wait to wear a cute Halloween costume!

I don't think I can keep up with all the personals, but Congrats Pink Hurricane -- that is awesome! 6 pounds, holy crap!

stimkovs -- your avatar cracks me up

amandie -- ugh, TOM. But just think how much you'll drop in about a week

ange82much -- hope you have fun on your vacation!

Katydid77 -- The really important thing is that you caught yourself Must be something in the air...I have been wanting to snack and eat much more than normal lately. It was a struggle at first of course, but these past few months it has actually been routine not to really even want to eat "bad" stuff. But these past few weeks have been a constant struggle. Even right now I am restraining myself from going and getting a salty crunchy snack. We can do this! Way to go on staying OP

As for me, I've pretty much stayed the same all week, which sucks as I've been resisting food like crazy, and still working out. But overall, it's okay and I'm not going to stress it. I know the smaller I get, the less weight I'm gonna lose and I can't expect 5 lb losses each week anymore.

I finally took some new photos and posted them in the mini-goal photo album if people are interested:

ONEDERLAND!! 115 pounds lost :)

I waited a few weeks before I celebrated getting to Onederland as I wanted to make sure it was really going to stick around, ha ha.

Hope everyone else is having a great week and whoosh fairies to all!

Since I was at my heaviest ever July 1, at 182, I'm going for an even 50 lbs. I would be happy to be back in the 140s. Anything lower will be a bonus. So I'm putting 50#, but hoping for anything 32+.
