AtlGirl ~ Sounds good to me. Are you getting enough sleep at night..I know you mentioned being up past ten? I had trouble with snacking late night at first, but eventually it just went away. A lot of that has to do with my water intake. Are you drinking water with your meals? I drink 24oz of water with every meal and it really helps.

Jacqui ~ Did you remember to eat this morning?

Odysseygurl ~ Welcome to the challenge.

Lol! Yes, Delphi! I woke up late but within 10 minutes, I went to the kitchen and ate breakfast--oatmeal with blueberries, a hard-boiled egg, an Activia yogurt, water, and vitamins! Did you eat breakfast this morning? Because I woke up so late (which I rarely do--thanks TOM for keeping me up all night!), lunch will be challenging. I'll have to plan it for around 1:30. I've already missed a mid-morning snack because of the late breakfast, so that's 1 time missed out of the 6 times to eat. So I have to remember to eat lunch because it can't be two missed times in a row! Setting my cell phone alarm now, lol!

Yes, Jacqui and my snack, which was a cup of carnation instant breakfast essentials, which actually tasted like real chocolate. But I thought that would be something that would give me a good chunk of calories and it's something I am drinking so I don't feel like I'm forcing myself to eat. Good luck with getting your next meal Jacqui..I'm rootin' for ya!

I'm looking good for calories today. I'm gonna put my entire eating schedule on My Fitness Pal every morning as my morning routine and make sure I have at least 1200 planned out. Now all I need do is actually follow it. I'll let you guys know this evening though.

HIIIIIIIIII GIIIIRRRLLSSS!!! I missed you ALL so much!!!
OMG....I had Too much fun on the cruise, and gained 8 pounds, hopefully some muscle, because I walked the stairs everywhere! It was so beautiful, and Disney cruise service can't be beat. The food was beyond awesome, I tried escargot, everything was gourmet! the shows were Flippinfantastic! The beaches were to die for! I booked my next cruise for Jan 2, 2010! Anyone interested????? I will post some quick pics later, but I have to run and get some groceries. I am on plan today, and drinking water like a fish! I hope some of this weight is water retention. My goal for June will be 10 pounds, to get me firmly back in Onederland!!!!! PS, the 8 pounds suck, but It was soooooooo woth it!!!!! Gosh I missed you gals!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi ladies!

I can't believe there are already this many pages and it is June 1. I'll never catch up, never.

Jacqui~My goal for this month is to lose 6.5 pounds. I have sadly had to update my ticker to reflect the reality that it went UP and hasn't moved in a month.

However, I am newly minted, newly committed, and newly to continue on my journey and make real progress this month. In the manner of true confessions, I will admit that we had an event last night and I ended the month with a bit more wine than was good for me.

I am happy to be with all my old chicks and to meet all the newbies this month.

Let's have a AWESOMEmonth ladies!!!

Soooo happy for June to be here! No more planned weekends out of town to screw things up! And after 3 days off, I'm totally ready to get back to the gym. It's all I'm thinking about today! Well, that and lunch cause I got up WAY early and it feels like it should be 1p already.

I've also decided that I'm going to try to take head pictures every day this week on my laptop with the built-in webcam so that I can see how my face changes this month. It could be fun!

Goooooooood Morning!!!! (or afternoon in the rest of the world I guess :P)

New Month, New chance to start all over again and finally stop going up and down the same 2 lbs LOL.. I guess I can at least say I am getting really good at maintaining hehe!

So, my official WI was this morning and I am starting at 173.6, which is not so bad since mid week it was higher than that from all the water retention after the exercise.

Delphi: I am on Nutrisystem, so you'd think this would be easy. I don't have to plan much, cook or portion things for the most part. So Monday to Thursday I am in my routine and I pretty much stay OP (plus or minus 100 cals I would say). My problem comes on the weekend when I go out with friends. We go out to eat and I seem to "forget" I am watching what I eat. I still eat less than I used to, but more than I should, and I undo all the good I did during the week.
I guess I have to make an effort to come and post during the weekend to keep me on track and to fess up to you all.

CMo4: Not sure if you've already seen this site, but I found it a while ago and it's on my list of workouts to get into one day: http://www.intervaltraining.net/Inte...beginners.html


Welcome dollypie, Janis, Odysseygurl

Good luck susiemartin! . Show the scale who's boss!

AtlGirl: I think drinking lots and lots of water helps me, especially when I am not really hungry, it still keeps my hands and mouth busy and eventually I forget.

Another thing you can try doing is splitting your calories into more meals, say 5 or 6 instead of 3. Keep healthy stuff at hand like pre-washed, pre-cut veggies so that if you feel like munching, you reach for those instead of the cookies...way less calories and after you get used to it, way more satisfying.

You can do this!

Lewis!!!! Glad you had fun in your cruise. I am sure there's a bit of water in those 8 lbs. and you'll be kicking them to the curb in no time. It's so good that you are back though

glutio: You are going to have a blast taking pictures of yourself everyday. Be sure to let us see the before and afters

Jacqui:: Thanks again for leading this challenge. You are the best!. And glad to see that you are managing to eat!

urock: Hi! let's rock June!

Ok chickies: Gotta get moving now or next thing I know it will be dinnertime LOL
