4 week Summer Swelter Battle

Summer is in full force and we need to sty strong! It's hard to hide those added pounds in skimpy summer outfits! Let's kick a few more pounds to the curb and look hot in this heat!

This will be another 4 week challenge because we seem to like short ones

Weigh in will be Fridays to encourage us to sty strong throughout the ever challenging weekends. first weigh in will be July 11th.

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 here! :blush:

Good Luck everyone!

"Sarge"

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

Hey again all!

I'm excited about this challenge. Weekly challenges always help me get over bad days since it's the week that counts.

A little about me. I'm 40, single and don't have kids (or pets or plants!). I travel for work although right now I'm on a longer term assignment, so I decided this was the perfect time to get back doing low carb. I don't follow any specific plan. I know what works for me so I do that. If I see changes in the scale that I don't like, then I make changes to my diet. The only thing that doesn't change day to day is the fact that I always drink 75-100 oz of water every day and I don't drink anything else besides splenda tea (which I drink in the evenings so I'm not up all night peeing!).

About two months ago, I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. I found the lump myself (please, please, please do self exams ladies!!) and have already had it removed. I begin my radiation therapy on July 22 and I have 32 visits (Monday thru Friday). No chemo has been prescribed, thank goodness.

I'm hoping that I'll be so set in low carbing by then that it won't cause me issues with cheating, but I guess we'll see! I'm not looking forward to it, but I know it has to be done.

I came home from working starving today for some reason! I ate dinner as soon as I got home, however was craving something a few minutes ago. So I decided on...bacon! LOL I had four pieces of bacon and now I feel fine. Funny how it used to have to be chocolate and now it's bacon....

How is everyone else doing today/tonight?

LoCarbingMe! I'm glad that you've joined us. It's a blessing that you were able to discover the breast cancer in its early stage. You can count on me as you start your chemo journey.

Unfortunately, my mom and sister died from ovarian cancer, they didn't detect it until it was in the stage four window. Ovarian cancer is called the silent killer because it manifests no symptoms until it's in the last stage. I add to what you've already stated: Please women get examined and self-check, too.

Thanks Callangirl! I'm so sorry for your loss! I actually have an appt on Monday to see an OB-GYN for a check up, so hopefully all is okay on that end. I do have PCOS so I want to have everything checked out to make sure I catch anything before it gets worse.

I'm here! I was off last week with a house full of guests. We had Jacqueline's first birthday party on the 5th, and then a week of staycation with family and friends here. What a blast! I am ready to get back and regroup. I need to do something serious to kick start things I think...totally strict induction or something. Anyway, glad to be back with you guys!

Callangirl-I actually had to cancel my appointment. With PCOS, I have rare periods and OF COURSE I would start the day before my appointment. Ugh! Oh well, at least now when they ask when the last one was it won't be so far away Everytime I lose weight, my period kicks in like magic. Actually, I don't have to get chemo, just radiation. It starts 7/22 and goes for 32 visits, Monday thru Friday. I'm not looking forward to it.

I'll keep you in my prayers. Just think of it this way, radiation may be a pain, but if it improves your overall health it's worth the inconvenience. I hope that the time of your 32 treatments go by quickly.

Hi Everyone,

I haven't had internet at home for several LONGGGGG months, and so I've fallen off again. Somehow gained 10 lbs too, despite trying my best to eat clean. Weekends are killing me lately though. Back to business with Kitty's challenge thread!

Welcome back Terra!
I lost this week. Mostly because I have had a cold and sore teeth so I can't eat much! It feels like wisdom teeth coming in making my jaw and sinuses hurt like crazy! I'm going to try and use this as a jump start to getting back to low carb. Protein shakes are my main thing this weekend! Chewing hurts!

Glad you've joined us Terra, I find this thread helpful in keeping me accountable without the feeling of being overwhelmed.

Oh Meg, I feel your pain, I hope you'll soon feel better.
