Default I am in

I read the original post on the 20th which was my first day on the site. I have come back a couple of times but had not posted. The idea that I could REALLY lose 30 lbs by the end of the year has been taunting me. I have had a devil and angel conversation between you can do and you can't do it. Today I decided to say...step down nay-sayer!! I am in. Tomorrow is my weigh in day so I will post my loss then, but here are my stats:

F42yo - overweight 16 years
Starting wt: 181 (9/20/10)
Goal wt: 130

When do I need to post weight loss each week and how do I do it? I am new to this...
Stacey

Starting weight 282
Current weight 195.6
Pounds lost: 87
Christmas Goal: 165
Goal Weight 135
I don't think there is a specific weigh-in day, but the post started on a Friday so that's what I go with. Anyway, go to the most recent list, hit the "quote" button on the right hand bottom corner, then edit it to add your starting weight and your next weigh-in, then your total change in parenthesis.

The next time I'm tempted to cheat I'm going to try and picture a mini fat me on one shoulder and a mini skinny me on the other and let them argue it out. You can do this, we're all sure of it, all that remains is to convince you. Come with us, what have you got to lose? Okay, besides the weight. Heck even if you only drop 10, 15, 20 by Christmas, that's much much better than packing on 10-15 like I did last year.

Hello Lovely ladies! I was away for the weekend and managed to eat (fairly) healthy for dining out most of the time. One half of a dessert consumed on the weekend - did a workout in the pool and did lots of mall walking.

We shopped in my girlfriend's skinny chick stores and I got some terrific motivation - picked up a few new smaller things and was drooling over some little suits that were cute beyond belief.

Hope everyone is well and had a successful week and weekend. Way to go on the losses! I'm happy to report I'm a loser this week

Default Continue On...

I start working out and watching what I eat.

I lose a few pounds, then stop.

I want to continue losing until I reach my goal and maintain my weight.

I will check in weekly on Friday.

Down .2 pounds -- woo hoo!

(Okay -- I'm really trying to cheer about this, but I am actually supremely disappointed that it's not more of a loss. But it's still a loss, so I am claiming it)

Default Trying something new

I am a yoyo dieter - that's my confession. I lose and gain the same 30 pounds every 2 years or so.

I have found a free website with a 60 day program addressing spirituality, overeating and filling your life with good things instead of good food. It seems to deal with underlying problems, not dieting or body size.

I have committed to doing that program daily for 60 days, then their followup.

I'm not trying to preach to anyone, just hoping and praying that I can leave bad habits behind me.
