  • KM - Im so sorry for your loss. I hope you're doing better today and remember that Bogart is happy :hugs:

    Im just checking in saying Im a bit over halfway to my challenge (and original ultimate goal!) I do plan on losing another 10lbs after I reach my original goal though.
  • Hey guys, sorry it's been a while since I've been back to check in. It looks like everyone is doing fantastic, keep up the good work.
    I'm a little excited because I have 2 more lbs to reach goal and I met a mini goal today of 10% body weight loss. Woohoo! I am a little sad that I am not really noticing a body image change, but I know it has a lot to do with my stature and the fact that I hid my weight fairly well. Oh wells.
    How is everyone feeling at the almost 1-month to-go date?
  • I'm beginning to get a wee bit nervous that I won't hit the goal that I made for this challenge. I lose 1.5 lbs per week and that will have me falling a couple of lbs below what I was shooting for.
    Edit: wait, I was thinking I still have 9.5 lbs to go, but that's how much I've lost so far in this challenge. I've got 6 to go, surely that's doable.
  • Congrats you guys!! I won't be making it to 15 lbs. I thought I'd be losing 1.5 every week but my body only loses 1 if I'm lucky. I'm hoping for 11, but I'll expect 10. Maybe I'll get that, who knows?
  • Slimmer by Summer! Yes, I can do this! I will be 16 pounds lighter by June 21. I have lost 13, 3 more to go. That would make me 259.

  • CJZee, Nomoremcfatty, wow, ahead of schedule!!
    amynbebes, Angel's_Dust- it's still good as long as you're not going up on the scale, right?? Plus, you'll have the rest of the summer to keep losing.
    Vegaspunkermom and everyone- thank you for the sympathies

    Also, I just had the MOST delicious 100 calorie morning snack that I highly recommend- 1 slice of light bread (40 cal), 2 slices fat free cheddar singlets (60 total), butter flavored pam. So, I sprayed the pan with Pam, sprayed the bread with pam, put the cheese on, and sprayed the top w/ Pam too, and then grilled the half grilled cheese sandwich on the stove. It was really really good. I can't believe only 100 cal!! Yum, yum.
  • i am half a lbs shy from my goal! I started at 174 and wanted to be 159... i am 159.6 as of from this morning... still 5 weeks to go.
  • Hi everyone! So, today I weighed in at 214.5 which is a pound and a half up. Aunt Flo has been visiting since Thursday so I am hoping that is why. I just couldn't stay away from the scale another day. I wasn't too strict with my plan last week, but I made it to the gym for 6 days (2 hr sessions)straight so I shouldn't have gained. Ugh! I am going to shave off a few hundred calories everyday and work a little harder this week.

    Congrats to everyone making progress! Keep it up!
  • Hello again. I fell off...again. But I am back...again. I know I won't make it to 185, but 185 was my vague overall summer goal anyways. I am hoping to lose another 5lbs for this challenge. I am finally ready to stay OP and do this!
  • Ugh. I did not waver from my diet. But I also weighed myself tonight and I didn't lose any weight. I lost ZERO pounds last week. This is the worst...I feel so defeated. How long does a plateau go on???
  • The scale says I'm up 2 pounds. Too much sodium. I've had too much salt and salsa these last few days and I should be getting my period soon. That means I won't see if I lost anything for at least 2 whole weeks. I'm so disappointed. Progress keeps me motivated and this just sucks.
  • Hang in there Angel, the scale is going to move next week for sure. I hate Aunt Flo!

    On a side note, I am happy to announce the I have officially reached goal this morning for the challenge!!! Only 41 more pounds until my final goal, eek!
  • Well, I weighed myself again last night since my tom was finally over and the scale read 209! Which put me down 4 more pounds and at a total of 60 pounds lost so far! Aunt flo seriously screwed with my head this week. Ugh! Just 10 pounds to go for the challenge and for ONEDERLAND!!!!! think I can do it!
  • nomoremcfatty: that is awesome! CONGRATS!!

    Sunkisses: 60 lbs is amazing! I can't wait to get there.
  • Congrats sunkisses and nomoremcfatty!!!
