Mike,
Enjoy the Saints game tonight! With Manning and Brees, it should be a fun one to watch.

1. Calories under 1200. 1009
2. 4 fruits and veggies a day. 4
3. 80 oz. of liquids a day. Yes
4. NO bread until Friday. 0
5. Take all vitamins and supplements. Yes
6. NO eating after supper... brush your teeth and read something! On my way to brush.
Great job so far on your goals. It should be a good game. Too bad we won't have Hank to start us off "Are you ready for some football?"

I'm SO in....I had a good Thanksgiving week, didn't overeat but didn't abstain from my favorite holiday goodies (damn pecan pie). Then Saturday hit....big in-state football rivalry between Clemson and Carolina. Went for a nice long powerwalk with my workout buddy/cousin before the game. Ate chicken chili for supper while watching the game, didn't over do it, and then the hotdogs started calling my name....."Tori, just one....Tori, you know you miss us" (I'm a huge hotdog fan). So I caved and ate a freaking hotdog. And before you know it....I had eaten chili, a hotdog, half of a fat filled artery clogging pistachio muffin, AND 1 1/2 homemade chocolate chip cookies. Carolina won--AGAIN--(WOOHOO, WAY TO GO GCOCKS!!!!) and then we went and hung flags and banners at our Clemson friends' houses. We did get some moderate jogging-back-to-the-car-so-we-don't-get-caught in, does that count as exercise??? What started as a good week ended as a great week football wise, but not so much diet wise. Oh well, time to start over. So, my very first 7-Day Challenge will be.....


1--eat no more than 1300 calories a day
2--drink NO MORE THAN ONE DIET MOUNTAIN DEW A DAY, no exceptions
3--exercise at least 5 days
4--cut back on the carbs
5--log absolutely everything
6--DO NOT DRINK A 2nd DIET MOUNTAIN DEW (I have a bit of a problem)
7--lose at least 2lbs

Nice goals Tori.

Hey does the Forum pages look screwed up to anyone else?

Does a pickle count as a veggie? I'll probably hit my 4 regardless, just curious b/c I'm eating one. The jar also said that the serving size is 1/4 pickle. What are you supposed to do, take a couple bites and put it back in the jar?

Pickles are absolutely a veggie. I usually buy the sandwich stackers, 1 1/2 slices is a serving size, so I usually eyeball a small one and a normal one and count that as my 1 1/2.

cool. I may count the pickle as 1 but I won't count it as 4 servings, I'd feel like I was cheating on my goals if I did.

Default I'm in!

Sorry I have been MIA until now. I had a crazy busy day and then had some friends over to share the big old pot of turkey chili that I made yesterday. It is delish! I also baked some celeriac, sweetpotato and brussels sprouts which I drizzled with walnut oil and a Spanish spice blend. They were fantastic!

I am now on day 11 with no sugar or white flour and I feel great. My cravings are disappearing more and more every day and I feel full much faster when I eat. I'm loving it!

My health goals:

1. No added sugar. YES
2. No white flour. YES
3. 1300-1500 calories per day. 1405
4. Drink min. 2 litres of water per day. DONE
5. Take vitamins. YES
6. Exercise 5 hours
7. Log everything.YES
8. Achieve a 5000 calorie deficit. M: -732

I still have to think of some other goals which I'll have tomorrow morning.


Mike, thanks for starting things up today! Somehow, I have trouble believing that you consumed 20,000 calories in 4 days and if you really did well, there should be a special about you on TLC.

Amy, how did you do on BF? Get anything good?

Terri, I'm really bummed to hear about your headaches! It just sounds awful and I'm sorry you had to go through that during the holiday weekend. No fun!!! But damn, Girl, you are BELOW 160 and that is amazing! WTG!

Mern, I sure do hope that your wedding ring shows up. I actually wear my grandmother's wedding ring (on my index finger though because she had chubby little hands) but it has so much sentimental value and not much financial worth. However it is one of my prized possessions. I really really hope that you find your ring. My grandmother would tell you to pray to Saint Anthony of Padua to get it back. He is the patron saint of lost things.

Cassie,
sorry to hear about your tummy trouble. I hope you feel better soon! I am really impressed that your ran 3 miles on Thanksgiving morning. WOW!!!

April, well done! that is amazing that you didn't gain a single ounce during the holiday! You rock.

Congrats Ann!
What happy news! I hear making a human being is tiring so you have the best excuse for your absence. We missed you!

Rose, I haven't logged a hard core cheat day in a while but they are usually 5k+ calories. I had 4 days back to back like that. Besides eating a lot of food, I also have pumpkin pie, apple cobbler, cheesecake, a blast, ice cream... and not just single servings. I wish I could say that I thought that it was an exaggeration, but I'd be lying if I did.
