WEIGHT-now 232...so 210 (-22)

WATER- 80 + oz / day

EXERCISE--4-5 days/week (currently barely getting there 3 days)

DIET--1200 cal, more VEGGIES---not a great veg eater, need to work on that.

Lets see if this ticker works...GOOD LUCK YA'LL!

Hi Mellyann. I have no objections to the progress report. For update, my goal is to lose about 2 lbs. per wek or 28 lbs by Thanksgiving. So, my goal weight will be 220.

Thanx

Elycia

Great! I'm updating the list and will repost tomorrow afternoon. Any new joiners, get your posts in by tomorrow morning and you'll be on the updated list. Otherwise, I'll add the new joiners to the list next week, after the first weigh in (Wed 8/23).

Awesome. Night is the hardest for me. I just have to remind myself: either I can choose to wake up thinner or wake up regretful. I'm sick of starting over every day.

One thing that helps me is to keep a calendar inside my bathroom cabinet. When I have a good eating day I cross out the day in pink marker. If I mess up I color the day all in purple marker. I also fill in my exercise in the square. For example:

2.5 mi/30 min
upper/Abs

This means I ran 2.5 miles in 30 mins and did upper lifting and crunches.

I strive to get as many pink X days as possible. I discovered that about 60-70% of the time I was cheating with my eating. This is over the course of the past 6 months. With that I lost about 15 lbs. Just think what I could have accomplished if I had kept the cheating down to 5-10%.

This sounds fun! I love challenges! Well I am from Canada so my Thanksgiving is earlier than most here! So will I be doing mine or your date? I think I will stick to mine! So to lose 12 lbs by then. Today I weighed in @ 172 lbs so my goal is to be 160.

Jadeddieter,
I tried push, I like it. It is quite a work out! Definately challenging.
