Question Halloween!

Hello fellow SBD followers,

I am on day 10 of Phase one. My over all mood has improved, I have no cravings and I've even lost my appetite (which is good for me!) I have gone from 204.0 to 197.0! I know it seems like a little because I have a way to go but it excites me! I am currently a size 14 and was wondering if anyone thinks it is possible to get down to a comfortable size 10 before October 31. I am absolutely infatuated with Halloween! Christmas is my first favorite, then Halloween. I really want to wear a cute impressive costume this year. Let me know if you think this is possible.

I was also wondering if anyone has any great recipes for bakers. I love to bake and decorate as a past time. I want to send out and give out little homemade treat boxes to friends and family, however, I will feel guilty if I am loading them up with bad cupcakes- any healthier soultions to make great tasting healthier cupcakes?

Thank you in advance.

Congrats on your losing 6 lbs. so far! How many lbs. do you have to lose to go down a dress size? For me it's about 12 lbs, give or take. You have about 7+ weeks, and you're probably switching to Ph2 soon, so you'll be losing at a far slower (healthier!) rate - I'm thinking fitting into size 12 is definitely doable, which is pretty good too, not sure about size 10. I find that if I add more weights to my workout, I shrink (but I don't necessarily lose weight at the same time because muscle weighs more than fat).

Congrats on your loss so far! I agree- weight loss will slow, you always lose some water weight in the beginning and its just not healthy to lose super fast... I gree on the depends on teh person too- I take between 20-30lbs to change one size! Its crazy but I am a pretty even all over kind of person I think maybe that is why... I know I have friends that lose 10lbs and change dress sizes good luck! Stick with it and you will lose! Don't rush it though We don't want you to get discouraged if it doesn't happen! Its being healthy that matters most!
