Committed to losing 10 lbs, by xmas
Hi, I'm new to Stillman's. I've been flirting with it the past week, but now I'm really ready to make a full commitment: I want to lose 10 pounds by xmas, and I just wanted to see if anyone wants to join me. I have more than 10 pounds to lose, but am hoping Stillman's can jump start my plan to move on to Atkins after xmas.

I just received an exercise step from Amazon yesterday--an early birthday present from my mom--and hopped on it this a.m. for an hour. Exercising makes me feel even more motivated (of course, I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow, b/c I'm so out of shape!).

Anyway, I know this time of year is tough with all those holiday parties (I have one tomorrow), but I'm going to have a plan in place b/c for me, if I fail to plan, I plan to fail.

Hope to hear from some of you soon!

Hi Vee! Welcome to Stillmans! Youre on the right track and will probably see 10 pounds gone by next week! So exciting!!! Awesome job with the exercise. I hear it works great, but I wouldn't know. lol

I like how you said it you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Get that meat ready!! I have no doubt you will get great results!! The first few days can be tough. I typically feel cranky, and tired but then on the 3rd or 4th day, I am recharged and ready to go!

Thanks, Aleriaaa. I so appreciate the positive feedback! I will check out the December thread, too. I am totally psyched about doing this right, and I am just going to try to keep it in the day, and just focus on what's right in front of me 24 hours at a time. I had a great, clean, day so far today: 2 poached eggs. sliced turkey breast (REAL turkey, not deli, processed stuff), and now I am making a turkey burger for dinner. I can see how this would be pretty boring to most people, but I have a goal in mind. I am tired of this weight, and I am tired of my yo-yoing and half-baked attempts to really get serious about how truly miserable I am at my current weight. Thanks so much!
