  • Well, my company is gone, so it's time to get back into it! I don't remember where I was at the last weigh-in, but I'm definitely up (I think by 3 or 4 lbs!).

    Hey Heather-How was Las Vegas? What did you do there?

    Where's Josephine?

    Melissa-how did your test go?

    Welcome to all the newbies to the 5 lb. challenge

    Good luck everyone!
  • No change for me...I'm still at 245....but I'm starting SBD today! So I expect to meet my goal of 241 by end of the month....or at least by Friday. I'm also picking up my exercise today as I have been on a 5 day break

    Alrighty...here we go!

    Darby - I won't know how I did on my test until 4-6 weeks from now..I feel very confident; however, usually when I feel good I don't do so well. I have to make a 159 to meet Tennessee's state standards! We will see I will let everyone know when I know....keep your fingers crossed!

    Come ON.
  • I never got a chance to weigh in the morning. I spent that night at our cottage. No scale there. I feel weird tho.. i'm so used to weighing in each morning for the challenge! hehe

    Anyway... maybe I will see a bigger loss after two days of no-scaling it! hehe

    It's actually HOt and nice out today... I think that a swim is in order somewhere!
  • ARGH.

    I'm up to 168.2 today. Seriously now people!!! SERIOUSLY. I was at 163 on Saturday. I *know* I didn't eat enough to gain 5 lbs. Really. I ate a little over 2700 cals on Saturday and about 2000 on Sunday (my daily allowance is 1500). And I went to the gym and worked my a$$ off on Saturday. I can still feel it.

    I know I didn't eat 17,000 cals over maintenance. So it is all water and bloat - both from TOM and just eating salty food.

    BUT GEEZE-O-FLIP!!!!! Can't a girl get a break. I'm seeing my guy in 2 more weeks and this going *up* thing has to quit.



    Thanks for letting me rant.

    I'm sure it's not that weight that will stay on. Let your muscles rest from the hardcore working out and eat back to your regular eating pan and i'm sure you will fall right back down again! NO worries
  • Finally a lb down!!

  • Heh. Thanks faux! It just felt good to get that all out. *phew*

    I'm back to my regular plan today (yogurt and fruit for breakfast, and drinking lots of water already).

    It'll all be fine!

  • Photochick, I'm in the same boat as you. Over-working and salt, yuck! I'm eating clean, and being good from here out. It's not worth it!

  • Way to go, Paula! I want an elliptical too!

    Somebody hurry up and win this one. I hate to start so late. Last week I had some unexpected company and it just threw me off. And I was off to such a good start.

    But here's my numbers anyhoo:

    SW: 204.0

    At least I'm down slightly from my SW in #19.
