Sarge's 8 week melt down

This is the challenge you are looking for if you have said "I really need to get it together and lose this!" We are going to encourage each other to give it our all whether it is eating well or exercising. We will push each other to push it to the limits! ....to reach our personal best by the end of the challenge....so, pull out those DVDs, dust off those weights, lace up your walking shoes! It is on!

No mamby pamby excuses allowed! Summer is coming! We have 8 weeks until Memorial Day. We want to be the hottest platoon on the beach this summer!

The first weigh in will be tomorrow, Tuesday, April 9th. Our last weigh in will be Tuesday May 28th. This takes us through the Memorial Day weekend....a possible carb assault!

If you forget to weigh in, do so as soon as you can. We are a friendly, fun loving, supportive group, but we are ready to kick booty if you need it!

Hoping to get reenlistments, and all new enlistments are welcome as well!

Join our group if you're looking for fun and support on your journey!

Everyone is welcome no matter what plan you are on!!! We are all here to support your weightloss journey. Any A.W.O.L. members from past challenges will be given full pardon. We also welcome veterans/maintainers.

Think about your goals and how you are going to reach them? What has worked, and what do you need to chuck to do it his time.

LET'S MOVE IT TROOPS! Skimpy uniform season is coming! :blush:

Good Luck everyone!

"Sarge"

Sending thanks and prayers for those that have served or are serving us in the real military.

Ok, I'm in. No vacations for me coming up which derailed me a bit last challenge, but work will be pretty stressful for me the next 6 weeks or so, so I'll try not to stress eat.

Greetings to the troops and a big salute to Sarge! Happy to be reenlisting!

Like Mistizoom, I'm expecting and preparing for a stressful time at work in the next month or so but I can balance it out with exercise because the weather is finally getting warmer.

Hi guys--I'm in!! This challenge is good timing for me as I have 3 weekends away between now and Memorial Day plus a few dinner engagements so I really need to stay the course. My first weekend away is this weekend, so here I go!

Okay, I got on scale

Put me at 201 - I gained 7 lbs over the holidays.(YES, THE ONES THAT WERE 4 MONTHS AGO)

I keep losing and gaining same 5-7 lbs................

Hopefully, this is the last time. I swore to myself that I would never be in the 200's again

Still at 201 - I am really going to try and do good this weekend and hopefully will see a loss on Monday.

Weekends are hard, especially if I watch movie or something, all I want to do is eat. Need a plan.

To all the new recruits!


I've been losing and gaining the same 10 lbs over and over.
Now that the nice weather is here and an ankle injury is finally feeling better,
I'm hoping to add a little exercise to my routine.

Have a great weekend all... Stay away from the bad stuff!

Weekends can be hard. Keeping low carb items that are ready to eat or quick/easy helps. I like my pizza bowl. I take a microwaveable bowl, small single serving type, and start with a layer of moz. Cheese, then a layer of pepperonis, then cheese then a small bit of pizza sauce. Some days I add more layers. Nuke till all melty. Let cool a tad so you don't scald your mouth! Yum! Gooey cheese! Mmmmm!

Happy Monday everyone!

Wash...rinse...repeat

Here I go again.
Day 1

B: 2 pieces sausage (YAY Cheryl, I ate breakfast LOL)
L: salad with ranch(hopefully....have to go stand in line at the post office)
D: grilled pork steaks, green beans

Went to the St Louis zoo yesterday with the fam....had a wonderful time. So much fun to see the joy on dgd's face at all the animals and people. Made me double realize how badly I need to lose weight. Was so uncomfortable, wasn't real hot, but if the wind hadn't been blowing, I would have been miserable. I love summer, but since I've gotten big(ger), am really dreading this summer. MUST ACT NOW!

Since I got so much walking in yesterday, am going to keep it going, getting on the treadmill tonight!
