Falling Poundage and Tricking the Treats Challenge

Leaves are falling already and the pounds will be too! We are headed into the bowls of carbage for the little beggers season. Let's join together to trick the treats by not shoving them into our mouths. We will support each other in finding ways to avoid the carb assaults of this season. We will also work hard to trick out our treats to look our best for the upcoming holiday parties, etc. coming our way.

If this isn't enough of a reason to be good, we have HWMNBN lurking! Yes, he's still around

The first weigh can be today. If you haven't checked, do so ASAP Our last weigh in will be Wed., Oct. 30th.

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.

Good Luck everyone!

"Sarge"

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

Morning Troops,
I've been gaining and losing the same pounds since January so I'm gonna change one thing. Gonna give up HWC and AS in my coffee, except as a treat 1-2 times a week. I've been reading up on AS a little and know I don't need to be using as much as I do.

Have a good one!
Janice

I need to reenlist--carbs and pounds have been creeping back up and extra responsibilities/stress at work need to be faced without sabotaging myself.

Welcome back Mobird!

Kim, good to see you here

LCL! Glad to have you with us!

Janice, that may be a good plan. I know I use too much AS. I need to cut back too.

We just enter the weight once a week only, on Wednesday. But yes, on Wednesday do copy and paste the most recent posting of weights and add your own.

Janice's post about making one change got me thinking: is anyone else planning to tweak anything? I lost a pound this week by returning to a best practice, which is that I am not eating anything after dinner. Nothing. No matter what.

I think ricotta crèmes are a problem for me. I don't know for sure though because I'm a one step forward, two steps back kind of loser...up and down. It just seemed like when I make ricotta crèmes an after dinner habit, the losses slow way down, stop, or I see a small gain and it's pulling teeth to drop a pound. So I am cutting out ricotta to see if it helps. Other than that, I haven't gone an iota off plan

Plan is to stay on induction levels to get back into the habit of eating well. Then, if not losing, will see what I need to look at. A point from LR is tht you are not to eat between meals and to have (I believe) 4 hours between last meal and bed. I think cutting out the late eating helps me.
