Unhappy Hmmmm...

Ten pounds by June 1st is two pounds a week for five weeks... that is a tough goal for me. I think I am going to add on a couple weeks and shoot for June 15th, which is a little less than 1 1/2 pounds a week.

Sojo's Goals:

Lose ten pounds by June 15th!
Starting weight 178... ending weight 168

No eating after 8 pm
Drink water
Exercise at least three times a week
No skipping meds
More fruits and veggies
Less eating out

Anyone else ready to be ten pounds thinner by this summer?

5 pounds by June 1st is doable for me. 209 this morning and trying a lower carb version of Weight Watchers.

(Yes, I even signed up for it online. How dumb is that! I've joined at least ten times before and know the whole schtick! There are 3 points in a Nanaimo bar and 2 in a Scotch and water. See!)

Personally, I'll be weighing every day as usual. But I'll just report in once weekly. I HAVE to weigh daily. I can gain up to 5 pounds a day for a week if I don't.

Oh Robin Come on In the waters fine!!! We love to have challengers. Conrats on your overall loss up to now!! WOW!

I've decided until I get into the low (teen) 200's i want to weigh-in weekly. I need to see where I need to adjust, etc.

I found a new great place to walk with hills, so i should get more effects now. We'll see!

Thanks RubensMuse for telling me about this thread and I'd like to join in on the challenge.

I'm going to be more than a little ambitious - I'm aiming for a 15 pound loss by 6/1/03 (trying to force myself out of a slump).

Start weight: 314.4lbs
Goal: 15 pounds
Target Date: 6/1/2003

Personal Goals:
1. Work out with trainer 4x a week
2. DO MY CARDIO - 3x a week
3. Swimming 1x a week
4. Eat more Fruit/Veggies
5. Get back on my eating plan!!!!!

Weekly weigh-ins sound good to me - ellis, I thought I was the only one who would gain 5 pounds a day if I don't check my weight daily!

Just passing on info in case it may help you.

I have found that starting out by logging my food helps alot. Makes me accountable and I become very conscience of what I eat, helping me make better decisions. I haven't logged them lately because overall I have been OP..(plus i eat alot of the same things and I feel silly writing the same stuff, I am sure many think I am a walking Egg Beater omelete by now) but I make sure I put in the 'unclean' things (stealing Chris's term ) so I am aware of them and can get assistance from others on altering it.

maybe it can help you reach your first Challenge goal.

Thanks for the tip! I have been logging (I use the DietPower software), but lately I've been to the point where I just haven't cared if I have to log that I ate an entire bag of chips. I log it, and see how many many many calories I've eaten, but still don't care.

I figured out that I'm at the point in just about all of my diets where I give up and end up back at my starting weight with some possible "bonus" pounds. I figure if I can keep trudging along even when I'm stalled, eventually I'll get back on track.

Weekends are the hardest for me right now. They get a whole lot easier if I work out both days (swim one day, and the dreaded elliptical crosstrainer the other day).

Also I've been looking over my food journals, and I realized that I'm eating hardly any fruits/veggies (salsa can only count for so much!), I figure if I up my intake on the veggies in particular, that will help as well.

I've been really anal for YEARS about drinking my water, avoiding sodas and juices, so that's not giving me any prolems.

I'm open to any suggestions you ladies may have to help me get past this slump!

Well the Fantabulous Mauvais went to Weight Watchers last night and found out that she weighs differently on their scale

So my start weight is actually 173lbs instead of 168lbs!!!*&%#@*&%

But I am still working on those 10lbs
