Default Motivational Thread, September 15th - September 21st! All aboard!

Hi all! I'm sick, so I'm making my goals short and sweet. Hopefully I don't get hit with a sodium bomb this week, because I'm sure soup will be involved, but I'm trying. The illness is in my chest (lots of coughing) so I'm hoping it doesn't become a bronchial infection!

1) Rest and recuperate
2) Calories below 1500 daily
3) Eat mindfully when I do eat
4) Workout if I'm feeling better
5) Keep meals balanced - dinner is 600 calories or less

Hi Debbie! I did join!!! DH was grumping about taking my picture, but I did it. I'm not sure if I'll make the goal and might be out 30 bucks, but I'll try 4% of my weight is 7.2 lbs. in a month, which is a tall order for me, but maybe I can do it if I lose a lot of water/sodium weight after I get over this chest cold

Terri - Yay!! So glad we're doing this together!!! Thanks for joining me My weight was waaaaaaaay up yesterday morning...with an additional pound because I weighed in with clothing which I don't normally do. I have to lose 5.7 lbs. in a month...which at the rate I've been going feels impossible. However, I don't want to lose $30! I hope to hit my goal then roll my winnings into the next game. I'll try to find you over there and add you as a friend so we can track each other. I'm Debbie G and my avatar is the same one I use here. Let the games begin!

Terri and Debbie, what are you participating in together? Sorry you two are sick! Hope you both feel better quickly.

Becca, Hope you had a great time on your trip!

I'm still doing terribly, but I always have hope I can turn this around. Feeling along the walls blindly for the light switch to flip in my head.

1 step forward and 2 steps back. I wanted a large chocolate shake so badly today. I almost gave in to the urge, but I managed to refrain. (win!) But then I made brownies. (fail) I don't know how many calories the brownies are since I haven't calculated the recipe yet, but I know they can't be more than an 850 calorie large chocolate shake from McD's. So I had 2 brownies (another fail) and I ended my night on a good note with a nutritious atkins w/ milk.


**Update. I horrifyingly calculated the calories on the brownies. Not pretty. I tracked my calories just now for the first time in probably 2 months and it was shocking.

I need food rehab.
