NEsunshine,

I am also trying to get lots of hiking in but it is going to start getting a bit too chilly. I have been doing walk/runs with my dog every morning.

I am also on a fairly new diet plan which is basically a low fat, whole foods, no meat, no dairy diet plan. I am eating lots of veggies, fruits and legumes along with limited amounts of other stuff. So far, it is going pretty well although I am nearing the end of my second week. It is nice because it keeps me full.

I was a bit worried about starting such a diet because of my hypoglycemia/PCOS but I have been doing great.

I really don't have any approach.. I am in a cycle right now, where I am not trying as I should . I still exercise for more than 60 minutes 5 days, 35 for the 6th day and usually the 7th I go hiking. I also am sticking to food plan, but it doesnt feel enough.
I hate apples, the only way I can eat them is with peanut butter , so I usually stay away from them, and it has been so warm here that I don't really feel like making soups and chilli's. I did print up a few recipes I found on vegetarian times.. and will probably make one or 2 this coming week, and there are lots of winter squashes available, but then I think about thanksgiving coming up, and I don't know what to do, I usually make a great sweet potato pie, and end up eating a few slices, well I am going to have to start looking for low fat/fat free recipes. .
There are what 14, 15? wks left for the year, so I think we can all loose at least 1 lb a week.

Hello, welcome to the forum and the challenge, Canajun Chick and Dumplin

I am happy to report that I have lost one pound and that is with TOM beginning today!! I think this exercise and calorie counting thing might actually be the ticket to success.

I will weigh in on Thursdays since that is my official weigh-in day anyway.

I hope everyone is doing their best

Thank you for the welcome messages! I am brand new as of yesterday and I realize now that maybe I'm not in the right forum so please let me know if that is the case. I see this is the 100lb Club (fantastic goals by the way!!) and I am trying to lose a smaller amount. I saw the 15 lbs by Christmas, which is rpetty much my goal, so I clicked before getting acclimatized to the different goups. Sorry about that. Happy losing!

Canajun Chick, I see NO reason you can't be a part of our challenge. For goodness sake, no matter how much you weigh, losing 15 lbs is a challenge. And as we all have heard those with the least to lose often have to work harder than some of us that have a ways to go still. I say stick around and be an inspiration.

There are great forums all over this board and I encourage you to jump into as many of them as you like.

I'm not weighing to log it until Wednesday. On plan so far today, hit the gym last night....then stayed up late watching baseball....what can I say...die hard Bostonian
Anyway no gym for me tonight...need to swing through a couple of stores and then get ready for the pumpkin festival tomorrow... I'm leaving at like 4am to miss the traffic and assure parking.

ugh.
Wish me luck, I'll be back on Sunday!

Anyone mind if I join in here?

I know it's a bit late, but 15 lbs gone by Christmas was my goal to begin with, and I figured why not just jump in?

I just officially started my new lifestyle yesterday, so we'll see how it goes. I'm sure I'll have to adjust some things here and there, but if I could put all of this weight on by myself, I'm sure I can take it off with the help of all you gals (and guys!)

Pita - thanks! I am going to stick around and try to lose 15 lbs with all of you! I am going snowboarding over the Christmas holidays and losing the weight will make it much easier (and my ski pants much more comfortable)! Have a nice weeked and happy losing!
