Hiya Lene!

Yay Tuscany for your half lb!

Lol! Joy, yes, soy sauce is definitely salty. That's water weight. No biggie!

I love this thread too Wolfgirl. So motivational!

Congrats on those 170's BleuMaus!

Seaurchin, congrats on your upcoming anniversary this month!

Love your avatar pixikat! I have a black cat named Ichabod. Black cats are so sweet. Congrats on your drop!

Turtle, I'm with you. I'm holding. At 202 for me. I envy your 171, lol! (I'll get there!)

Hello and welcome to all!

So, tomorrow starts my really big challenge this month. I go on vacation! Eek! I'm looking forward to it, but you know how it is. It's easy to stray. Luckily, I'll be traveling there tomorrow and coming back the following Saturday, and Saturdays are my allowed cheat day, so that will make fast food places along the way easier to cope with. I just have to stay on plan Sunday-Friday! I plan to take my computer with me, so hopefully you chickies can help me stay on track! I'm doing a low-ish carb diet, and I can have leans meats, fish, eggs, beans, and non-starchy veggies, so there really are lots to choose from. I can do this, I can do this, I can do this (right?), lol!

It looks like everyone is ready for battle this month. I am super stoked to be with you!

Congratulations to the daily weighing losers.

Lene Hang in there and this too shall pass.

Joy and LOL about the soy sauce. I puff up like a balloon when I eat it.

Way to go BleuMaus on your breakup with the 180s!

Have fun Jacqui! You will do great!

Have a fantastic weekend!

TrayTeam, good for you!

Pixikat, I'm going to VA Beach. Hubby and I have a timeshare there, so we go almost every year. The not-so-fun part is that it's a 10-hour drive! But we have a great time once we get there, so I'm looking forward to it!

@Bleu - I just did something similar on Tuesday. We packed lunches (we had to leave the park to eat because they don't allow outside food to be brought in but we also get readmission). I didn't eat anything at the park just because of price but I would suggest if there is one snackey item (for me it's funnel cakes or mini donuts) that is outside of your program allow yourself to have some, but share them with someone else.

Congrats Leah!

Bleu, if you can pack a lunch and snacks like Leah mentioned, I'd say go that route since you just hit the 170's. However, if you don't think you can do it, give yourself a cheat day. Eat want you want and don't feel guilty about it, but be aware of what you're eating and don't overeat. You might weigh a bit more the next day, but in the long run, you'll keep losing. It's better to plan a cheat day than to make up your mind you cannot cheat, then slip up and possibly give up and overeat in frustration.

Start weight- 171.1
Goal weight- 165

Aug 1- 171.1
Aug 2- 171.2 (+.1) TOM
Aug 3- 172.8 (+.6)

I'm up a little which I expected. I gave into carb cravings last night and had home made white pizza (yum, buy the way) and frozen yogurt with fresh fruit. Technically, with my run yesterday I was still within my calories, it was just a little carb crazy for me.

I read everyone's posts but I need to get out of the house early and still have to pack some healthy food for the day. I'll try to check back in later!

Really quick, I had a yay moment yesterday... I got my first "are you losing weight" remark! So that took 7lbs and 4 weeks for someone to notice and say something. It was nice to hear!

Have a great day!
