I didn't weigh this morning, Beth put my weight at 218.5 as that's what it was yesterday morning, and I'm sure I haven't lost anything.

I will be in here bright and early Monday morning ready to start being a LOSER

Everyone have a good weekend!

maybe i'm not eating enough, I know thats been a discussion on here for a few of you and i'm jumping on that wagon i think. it gets tough, i don't have a huge appetite and no cravings, and i drink so much water... when i do eat lunch and dinner its not a whole lot anymore... hmmm... i think i'm gonna make a bunch of bacon tonight. B&E for din!

Hi Tatiana!!!

I'm 27 and about the same weight as you. I like finding people with my similar age/poundage.

I've done LC a few times in the past, lost 20-40 lbs at a time, then bounce back up a few years later. 217 was my heaviest on 1/1 so on 1/3- it began again. hopefully for the last time!

Not good...not bad...

Ok so I know that I'm eating ok...it MUST be my water. I have been so busy at work I actually forgot to drink ANYTHING from 3...on. That can't be good. I am going to go buy a HUGE water bottle to put on my desk in front of me! Hoping that helps.

184 and holding

Meh

Well Ive done ok....I'm at 179, not too bad, but, I got real sick with either a stomach bug or the induction flu. not sure which one, but, either way, for 3 days I drank nothing but broth. Guess I can't complain. Here's to a better week for us all.

Would love to join this challenge I have been on and off lc. Since beginning of dec. fell off AGAIN this weekend so starting induction again yesterday. My weight is 160. I had gotten down to 153.. But with all the cheating I'm back where I started ( so not worth it).. I'm hoping this is the platform I need to keep me excited and motivated

Good morning everyone! Welcome to all the new people!!!

Today is day 1! I'm not feeling very good today, we are all getting the creeping crud that is going around, ran fever off and on all day yesterday, didn't even get out of my pajamas. Have just kind of the achy yucky feeling today with a background headache, but so far no fever. I got to work and my boss called out with a fever.. guessing it is eventually going to get me. Until then though....

Today's menu:

B: 2 eggs, 2 bacon slices, peach tea crystal lite
L: salad with only allowed veggies, ranch and another crystal lite peach tea.
D: boiled chicken(leftover) with roasted asparagus, cheese and green onions and Linda Sue's taco seasoning.

Started this morning at 219.5......so only downward to go from here!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Congratulations!!! That's so awesome! I can't wait to be there, feels far off, but at the same time it doesn't. Weird? I'm trying to stay off the scale until Friday...

sorry I've been MIA, have been crazy busy at work.

Still struggling to get back on plan. Haven't been able to get the foods I need and everyone in my house has been sick.

Hoping to get this all taken care of and ready to be on track....keep thinking the longer I put off, the longer it'll be until I lose the weight!

I Have:

1. Stayed away from the scale for the last 3 days!

2. Wore a shirt last night that I normally feel is too form fitting (though not tight) where I usually have a muffin of belly up over my jeans, there was none (or it was small enough that I just didn't care).

3. Someone at work said they were jealous because they could tell I was losing weight.

Very Yay!

Excited to weigh tomorrow!

Tasha - Thanks for doing the chart. I'm computer stupid.

Blondieblue - Congrats on the outfit!!! I love when that happens

Good luck everyone! Liz
