  • Yahoo I found an employee with management experience so training her should be pretty easy! To bad my assistant manager showed up today sick as a dog when it rains at work it pours.

    No walking for me today but hopefully tomorrow after work. Thanks to you all for the kind words about my walking plans

    Have a great Saturday everyone!

    Goals:
    Walk 10k: M=6.2k, T=2.2k, W=0, T=3.5k, F=0
    Calories less than 1500: M=1421, T=1029, W=1062, T=1353, F=1067
    Calorie deficit of 5000: M=-720, T=-988, W= -955, T=-665, F=-950
    Squats twice: M=N, T=N, W=Y, T=N, F=N
  • Well Cassie Darlene is definitely leading the pack as far as walking goes. I have 2 days left to get in 6.25k. It's kinda snowing here today again but the weather is supposed to be warm and sunny next week. It's supposed to be 2c here today and that should be it for the blasted freezing cold/boots/hat/mitts battles. And Cassie I would consider re-locating if it's warm where you are!

    For those who have reported in nice job on your calories. We are doing pretty well without Mern, surprisingly, with her inspirational menus and posts.

    I drank practically no water yesterday and I am not really sure why. Water today!!
  • Weekends are usually my downfall...and this one, so far, is no different. Just have to keep trying and not let it completely derail me

    1) Exercise on a daily basis - Yes, No
    2) Log my food here on Fitday - Yes, Yes
    3) Stay under 1200 calories - Yes, No (would have been under if I had stuck to my number 4 goal )
    4) No wine - Yes, No
    5) Stay off the scale! - Yes, Yes

    Have a great weekend everyone!
  • Weighed this morning and I'm up half a pound. Not surprising since I had cupcake, and bigger meal for Mom's birthday.
    Feeling sluggish today (PMS and maybe STRESS??) but hopefully I will feel more energized Mon to exercise more!

    Mike, I'm intrigued with what you would eat to get up to 5,000 calories??

    Jenn
  • Jenn, I can answer that with one word... EVERYTHING. Usually donuts, a blasts, 1/2-3/4 of a rum came (at almost 500 calories a piece), you name it.

    I'm down 2 more pounds. With 2 more weigh ins to complete my 2 weeks, I am down 13 pounds. Don't forget that Monday I will take and post my 2 week pics.
  • Weekend warriors unite!

    • Plant! (Wed, Thurs): No (What was I thinking, there's no room left for new stuff.)
    Jeszzie: Congrats on your 10 pound loss, and crossing that threshold.

    Debbie: No wine on Fridays is hard. I finally had to face the fact that I'll consume more calories on the weekend. I had a lower cal value this week, and obviously didn't succeed with that.

    Mke: It is the weekend, but I'm a lover, not a fighter.

    - Donna
  • Donna, no damn excuses, you are a warrior this weekend!!!!!
  • Hello, New here.
    Hey everyone! I'm just starting my weight-loss journey, again. So far in the past week I've lost 8lb without any added exercise. So this Slow-Carb diet appears to be working pretty well so far. Today is cheat day so I get to eat a ton of junk, and it's not supposed to effect my results. (we'll see about that lol).

    In this thread are we supposed to share our weekly goals & such?

    Congrats on the 8 pounds this week! Awesome job. Yeah, we all just post up our goals for the week (or weekend) and just follow up. We try to keep the motivation going between us. Some of us struggle and need a little hug, while others (like myself) need a kick. That's what makes this group so great. We are all so different and at different stages.
