Hey guys

This year to resist the candy temptation I bought a huge box of mini chocolate bars and everyone in there I dislike ( i am particular about my chocolate bars) that way I am not even tempted to touch them because I know I don't like them

LOL, this was me all day today too. We actually have a "candy" drawer in our house, where I keep a bag of Hershey's dark chocolate kisses, and I can eat 1 at a time, 20 calories. I limit myself to no more than 4/day, so I have to pace myself. There are days I almost eat them with the papers still on....

Default Dreading today - and update to list....

167 - Down 2 more pounds, bring totaly to 13 pounds- Whew - I was totally dreading today.... I haven't been able to work out in a week between the baby being sick - and now me being sick (I did work out on Monday - but it made me feel much worse). At least the diet part has still been working for me.

Ok - in my Type A(ness) I alphabetized the list.... Hope this helps you find your name...

I'm a bit late here. I set my goal for 20 lbs lost by 1/1/11 yesterday (5'9 and 190 lbs going down to 170 lbs). I think I'm kind of in the same timeframe as the rest of you ladies though!

I tried "diet buddying" with a male friend of mine on fitday, he weighs 250 and it kills me to see the guy eat a bacon/egg sandwich, TWO grilled cheeses, and a WHOLE 12 inch pizza and still have 800 calories to spare for the day without exercising. Men are lucky in so many ways!

Anyhow, I'm doing my best avoiding alcohol, fast food, and eating when I'm not hungry in the evenings out of boredom. To reach my goal I'm allowed 1200 - 1400 calories a day and it's not easy!

To introduce myself, I'm Candice, 27 y/o, single, and working the 9 -5. Tryin to get my ol' dog Daisy out for some longer walks too but usually I'm so exhausted all I can do is restrict calories. I lost my job to a layoff in April/10 and gained 30+ lbs in 4 months. The excess weight is such an awful reminder of it, not to mention I don't fit into many of my office clothes anymore now that I'm back to work!

I look forward to hearing about all of your own struggles and successes. I'll be here. =)

Welcome! I understand what you mean. I have my baby girl in March 2009 and since then I hadn't lost much of my maternity weight.. I was slacking off until everyone around me started telling me how much weight I had gained. Clothes don't fit plus I didn't like the image of myself this way anymore. I am starting off slow by losing 2 pounds in 3 weeks but it's a start and my goal is to be down to 125 pounds by the end of January if possible. I would love to fit in to my previous dresses ..

Start weight- 150
Current weight- 148
Goal weight- 130 by December 2010.

I seem to have had 2 of my weeks deleted, so I'm adding them again.
Weigh day tomorrow. I'm hoping for a good one!

Thanks for alphabetizing flutrbug, I kept thinking I should do that after the list got past 20 or so, but didn't stop to make the time for it. I've had a really nutty week, but managed to only lose self control for a little while on Wednesday, the rest of the week has been okay and I'm down 1.1 pounds this week. I'm behind schedule for 30 by Christmas, but I'll take whatever I can get and be glad it's less rather than more by Christmas Day. Seriously if you figure that every year most of us gain 10-15 pounds during the holidays, if we only lose 15-20ish during this 14 week challenge, we're actually further ahead than what the scale shows.....

Allmeeker I love your glass half full optimistic view! Being healthy and lighter is a terrific Christmas present. Water and sleep seem to be my magic tonic this week.
