YAYYYY. VOLUME 3. Happy Tuesday OP peeps! Last night, I hemmed some smaller pants I got at the thrift store, took in some clothes. With 20 left to go, I want to hold out buying nice clothes as much as possible till I see what size I will really be. I'm in 14's now, a few 12's. Will I be in 8's or 10's at the end???? Who knows?

good morning IPEEPS...so today I weighed in....a WHOPPING 7.2 DOWN! i am thrilled, I hit the 30 pound mark and am more than half way there! I promised myself a Tablet when I hit 30 pounds....hmmm...no time this week to get one...but I can start looking! Just had to share, very very excited!
My husband, son and daughter in law are all on plan now.
Last night they were over and we have Big Macs in a bowl and Monday night football, Chargers won, I won my opening Fantasy game...I would say a pretty good week so far.
So next goal is to get into the 150's....wow it has been YEARS!!!!!! yay!
Have a great day!

Congratulations! Halfway ++ is a huge accomplishment!!!
Keep going!!
This is so similar to the program I used 30 yrs ago to loose 45 lbs and it really worked.(I'm a newbie)..I have kept it off all those 30 yrs...until Mom passed away. so I jumped at this to get back to my comfortable weight.
You will b so glad and and SO successful keeping it off!!

Thank you Rainbow...this group has been so awesome getting me started. Food arrived yesterday. I admit to being a bit overwhelmed, but now I can get creative and have more than shakes for breakfast & lunch.
Make some of those fabulous Rainbow recipes!

Thought for today:
God Bless America

remembering all our fallen friends and their families today

BLUEJEWEL ~ AWESOME! Halfway is such an overwhelming feeling of satisfaction! Congratulations Also, glad to hear others in your family are wanting to get healthier as well. You all have a built-in support group!

I bought 4 new tops last night - MEDIUMS!!! One is still a bit too tight to wear, but won't be for long! Sure hope I'll be able to continue to find things I like on clearance sales for a while longer. Also went to GNC, got a Gold Card and some new drink mix. Then my VIP took me out to Ruby Tuesdays for dinner...Steak, steamed broccoli, and select items off the salad bar. A very nice evening all around

Today I begin Boot Camp...wish me luck!

Way to go, Bluejewel!

And good luck with bootcamp, Greeniris.

After catchingup on all of yesterday's threads, I'm hoping we can do a 50+ meeting in Charleston some day. It would be such a thrill to meet all of you in person!!
