oh, and looking again at how much time I actually have until Vegas, 63 days, I may be a little over ambitious with the 155! But I'm still going to try.

My husband is afraid it will be boring and he'll hate it because there won't be anything to do!
I'm going to the Maldives!

I loved living in Vegas, I actually lived in a city called Green Valley Ranch, it's beautiful over there! It looks less like the desert and more of a town, still nice casinos if you don't want to go to the strip. I also loved that even though you're all the way out in NV, there are always visitors! I also loved how cheap living there was! I had a super nice apartment and was paying less than $800 a month, which would never happen living in California (I mean even dumpy city areas are horrendously expensive!)

I really do miss it! The only thing that was a bit costly was utilities but it balances out with lower rent. Oh and homes are gorgeous!! and much cheaper, Glendale is a nice area, but I could never afford to live there!!

Just to give you an idea,

http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/27...18199316_zpid/

I mean I (personally) think this house is gorgeous! It would easily be $700+ in california! saddd!!!

I swear living in California sometimes makes me sad! haha but then I can't complain because we have the sun around all the time!

hhm I know! i watch that show Flipping Vegas, and it always pisses me off how cheap the houses they sell are...and they're amazing. I want to finish my BS here, and hopefully make my way out there someday. But DH isn't sure because he is a valley boy through and through...grew up in Glendale. I am from Orange County myself - Huntington Beach. We'll see. We pay 1450 per month for our 1 bedroom, 1000 sq. ft house over by the Equestrian center - it's not a bad price for the fact that we have a laundry room in the house, a fireplace, off-street parking, and all hardwood oak floors. But we could get a mortgage for less than that out there!!!! Good think I love the area I live in, because I hated South Glendale. Too crowded.

something is working!

164.2 this morning...whatever! I guess the no alcohol is it! But I'm taking Garcina Cambogia, too...just started it a few days ago. I guess I will keep doing what I'm doing!!!

LOVED watching the blood moon from my driveway last night...awesome!

hhm, she's in the 130's threads so she will definitely not come back to hand with us I'm happy for her and I need to now get on the ball or I'll be in the 160's forever and ever.

Syckgirlsfv, nothing beats a failure but a try and we can all try ... I sure am gone try. I want to at least be 160/159 by Mother's Day

Missed the blood moon thanks to rain and it being late. I weighed in a 162.4 yesterday, up 2.4 from where I wanted to be but when you feed your body crap that is what you get crappy weigh-ins. Today I a at 163 even but we are going to hit the gym so I should see a better number tomorrow to kick/get my butt in gear

Syckgirlsfv = 155
love2b150 = 156
hhm = 159
thirti4thirty =
Mad Donnelly =

Omg wow, the 130s!!! She's doing great!

I didn't know why I was craving sugar so much today but I found out it's TOM again for me so not planning on the scale doing me any favors these next few days. Must make sure not to give in to sugar!!!!!

I went to target today and had a box of little debbie swiss rolls in my cart, then decided to take them out and buy a single again, but the price different was $0.50 so I took them both to the counter since I couldn't make up my mind, and then finally when it was my turn I asked the cashier take them out I made such unnecessary work for them!!

I also have an issue with a guy in my life and I don't know why it's wrecking havoc on my diet I feel WHY must everything affect my weight loss?! It's like every single problem either makes me eat more/break my diet. I wish I could be one of those people who just loses their appetite instead.

Sorry for the vent ladies, I need these next few days to just pass.

Aw yeah, that's understandable! There is no place like CA! I love Socal (I lived in SF for a couple months-HATED IT!) but Vegas was nice! I'm hoping to move back there someday too (if I can!) and yeah that's a nice deal there! I know what you mean though. I have yet to invest in any real estate but having a nice house for the price to rent an apartment has many perks! (well minus those taxes lol)

hhm, sorry about the guy issues and TOM is visiting again. TOM just left me. But I am wrecking havoc on my own diet. I need to gain control again and I just can't seem to get a grip. Good job on the Little Debbie's

Syckgirlsfv, we are neck and neck, I'm at 164 today also.

I need a plan. I don't know what to do to get back on plan. I did very well today then that last piece of birthday cake was sitting there, no one wanted to eat it because my daughter took most of the icing off of it so I ate it. The good news is it is all gone now. So just maybe tomorrow I can eat like I am supposed to.

Have you thought about an appetite suppressant? Green coffee bean seems to help and so does garcinia cambogia - I find it much easier if I'm not that hungry, otherwise I'm thinking about food. I don't usually resort to them, but this is a different game now that I'm in my 40's!

I have the green tea and it doesn't work for me as far as suppressing my appetite. It does give me energy though. I recently read about the gardenia cambogia. I don't want to spend the money on something else that doesn't work. I wish I had the money to go to a weight loss doctor because the adipex that they gave me worked for the first two weeks then that didn't work as well either. If I could just get back to no carbs/low carbs I can do this again. I just have to get my head back to the beginning of this year. I'm gonna start tomorrow. I am promising myself And I hit 48 on Monday so I'm with you there

love2b150 I've always heard that Hoodia is a great appetite suppressant, but haven't tried it. I am thinking of trying it in the future, should the other 2 things stop working

164.0 on the scale this morning, no change. FINE! LOL...I dropped 2 pounds in less than a week, and I know better than to expect to see a loss EVERY day, but I can't help wanting to. At least there is no gain

after today my weekend begins! took tomorrow off to visit my sis at my mom's - she's here from France for a few days and is flying back on Saturday, so I took the day off to go have a pre-Easter/Good Friday meal with everyone. Off to Huntington Beach in the morning! I love it there, because I grew up there between the ages of 1 and 20.

Today after work I'm going to the gym, though, to do shoulders, arms, and cardio.

So I've been good for a few weeks, rewarded with a solid 162. Sometimes the scale even teases me with a 159 wink. Oh, I want the 150s so bad. But it's here at the precipice that I usually blow it!

Hey ladies!

I'm still alive and still around, just crazy busy
But still sticking with the program. And guess what - as of today (or possibly yesterday, I even forgot to weigh in ) I'm down to 160.9.

So, what did I miss? Did you girls start a challenge?
