Default For Anyone Interested, a "Ten In Five" Thread!

Hi ladies ...

I'm starting something today called a "Ten In Five" Thread, to take off 10 pounds in five weeks. I will be traveling in five weeks and four days, and I must have more room in my waistbands when I get on that plane! I refuse to buy anything new. Anyone from any thread is welcome to do this with me, in addition to your "home" thread ...

I am a good 60 to 80-ish lbs. overweight, but this would be a good jumpstart, and make my clothes fit better. I'm also going to try to exercise EVERY day, as well as stick with 1200 - 1400 calories. If anyone would like to join me, or just pop in to say hi, please do! I'm going to be extra vigilant, and report in here every morning. Wish me luck!

Olivia

Andrea, I am delighted to have you on board!!! It has gotten a wee bit lonely here the last couple of days ... Those first three of my ten are the easy ones, I know, and now I must dig in and stick with it as the scale slows down. I even managed yesterday, going to a hockey game, so if I can do that (with the smell of buttered popcorn ... and sausage sandwiches, with peppers and onions, all around me ... ... I CAN DO IT!)

So, about time for my walk! Welcome again, Andrea, and GOOD LUCK ...

Olivia

Big welcome, LadyNascar! I am so happy to have you join Andrea & me. Good luck with your plan! I will be exercising tomorrow with you as I missed yesterday to rest knees, and this morning we had pouring rain. I definitely don't want to miss more than two day!

Good luck with your weigh-in tomorrow, Andrea!
