Yeah, might as well just do the best we can, I don't think too many of us are going to be aiming for 63 [deleted smily]

You need to change your name to super weight loss woman, you must have lost 20 pounds in the past few weeks congratulations.

Apologies, I need to stop skimming through these threads and pay more attention [deleted sad face]

They need to make diet alcohol, that way we could all drink and loose weight at the same time [deleted smily]

Last night went to a restaurant so my gf could sell an insurance policy and the guy wanted to go out drinking afterwards. At the next restaurant this taekwondo instructor started chatting to us and he too wanted to go out drinking so we hit up another place. A good 3000 calories worth of alcohol later we finally made it back home and when I logged the food I almost had a heart attack, those numbers add up really quickly [deleted sad face] At least there was a good number of veggies in the food.


1. Under 2000 calories per day
2. Over 3000 calories exercise for the week
3. Robin's Veggie challenge (I'll go for 35 instead of 50)
4. Less than 3 icecreams for the week (my gf bought about 25 on Sunday and they look so tasty just sitting there in the freezer in this 35C [that's like 1000F] weather)
Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going - Sam Levenson
