Girls, thanks for your support and for making me feel so welcome.

Libby you did awesome!!!! And yes blood sugar and pressure do improve with weight loss so it's a win/win/win. Plus I know I feel better when I eat better; I think most people do. I'm so glad to hear your feel stopped hurting.

Lisa, you have a great attitude and yes it was a loss, not a gain. Lisa, have you tried flavored seltzers? Not soda, I know, but sometimes can be satisfying; they have lots of flavors. I like pomegranate.

Hi Hope, good to see you again! When big things happen in life (like moving!) it throws a curve ball into our weight loss efforts. But it's great to see that you are back and fighting!

Lisa, what helps me is to look back on my progress--I did lose weight. You've done great--you can't deny that. Think about how you could stay on track. When do you crave the soda? I'm thinking you need the energy--the sugar rush. Is there any other way you could get that--like with juice?

Good job Libby--and way to go with the new goal!

I'm distracted at the moment--I have too much going on right now with my parents' tenant issues. And we're leaving on vacation for Florida in only 2 weeks! I so wanted to get into a swimsuit again--please let me lose just a few more pounds!

dschefer, I just don't like water or tea or anything that has little flavor. It seems that when I drink water, it doesn't matter how much I drink, that I always stay parched. When I drink soda my mouth feels cool and refreshed. ass backwards, I know. I do love juice. But that has just as many calories as soda. I could drink juice by the gallon. It's expensive though so I rarely buy it. If I buy a $2.50 half gallon of orange juice or apple juice, the family devours it and it's gone in less than a day. Yes, it has more nutritional value. But I can't justify buying it when it costs so much and goes so fast. I'm not used to the diet any more and the diet taste was gross today. I'm going to have to ease back into it. I did drink far less regular today than I have been.

I feel like I have hit a wall and my body is not willing to shed any more weight. I have had a good run but now I am stuck. I am not giving up, just frustrated.

The Challenge Thread got buried on the list so I just wanted to bring it back to the top. Repost if you put your weigh in on Fridays list today.

I hope that we will have another challenge in the new year to lose weight for Summer.
Linda, good for you for losing this week. A lot of us are struggling right now.
We have three more times to weigh in before this Challenge is over.
Good luck everyone

Last week I was complaining that I hit a wall. This week I drove a wrecking ball through it. Yay I may just beat my new goal.

Hi all. Hope the holidays have been treating you well.
I have been on allergy meds that are making me gain weight and feel crappy. Am thinking of going off...

You guys look like you're doing great...

Libby, you sure did go through it like a wrecking ball!! Great going!!!
Hope, meds can do that to you. Are there any alternative brands or anything that might not have the same affect?
