@ Dad and Ian:

I know I am more of an enabler than a supporter... I have to work harder on that part. However...

...it's 3:30 pm in New York and I'll be going home in 20 minutes and I guess I need to know really soon what you guys are planning to do about our little seven-day abstinence... (SEVEN (!) ) I would really need to know, like, within two hours?! By 5:30 the whole plan might become a mere memory!

You go ahead with the plan and I'll watch in awe and learn from you and maybe join you next time, but for now... Too scary! Please?

geez... talk about performing under pressure.

Ok - I'll stick with my original answer. I'm in - no booze for a week.

Besides - I need to punish myself after being pretty bad over the long 4 day weekend.

I am really struggling with setting goals this week. I don't really want to wait til Sunday to weigh in again, I am only 2 pounds from my goal weight, I'm pretty sure that waiting til Sunday is going to drive me crazy. I think I'll weigh everyday til I see the magic number.

Mel-Mc, Renewed soul, Claire.......the weight loss, see logging and posting really supports you


Because I am traveling this week:

1. At least one work out while away
2. Weekly deficit over 3000
3. Make healthy food choices while away.
4. At least 5 bags of stuff to leave the house this week, charity, garbage, whatever.

Today I walked 2 miles and I would like to have another walking challenge if anyone is in.

Good luck to you alcohol abstainers!

Default Hey Mern!

Hey Mern, Thank you for asking last week if my high cholesterol number was a typo. It turns out it was a bad value! I had a little cheese today and when I entered it I checked the value with the package. It was Much lower than expected. So I made the four goals I hoped to last week after all.

I certainly hope you are enjoying your new fridge by now!

- D.

2. Under 12000 calories for the week
3. Under 280g fat for the week

5. 0 alcohol

Monday update:

Goals:

1. log food every day M=Y
2. keep calories between 1400-1600 M= 1575
3. exercise on my lunch hour at least three times 1 done

Robingen, logging is the only way it works for me. I'm hoping that coming here every day will keep me on track. I did very well when I had to show food logs to the dietician. Until I realized she had very serious food issues of her own and told my doctor I wouldn't go back to her. (At our third visit I asked her for strategies for dining out with friends with whom you might not want to share that you are dieting. She went off onto this wild rant about how I had to explain to them that they were all going to die young from bad food choices and that I didn't want to join them in the grave.)
