I am new to CC, but not new to dieting. I need someone to make me accountable. I have had my aha moment, and I am ready for a healthy lifestyle. I am not very good at logging my food, but I am working on it! I am 5'2" and have been as high as 150. I am currently bouncing from 132 to 135. My goal is to be at 115. That averages right at 2pounds a week to make it by Valentines Day. Anybody want to join me in trying to drop 20 pounds by February 14th? We can do weekly weigh ins and just support each other through the ups and downs. Thanks.

I would like to join this group too. I have started spinning and i will be starting personal training next week. I got married in October and we went on a cruise and all i did was eat and eat, I even out ate my huge husband who is 6'3 275 lbs.
Height : 5'5
SW : 227
If i can get rid of the 21.7 by feb 14th I will be thrilled!!!
I am doing a lower carbohydrate diet. Its the only way i can stay on a program.
Agree deadflowers! It took me a few days to "recover" from the holiday parties at the end of last weekend. But I just found out last night that my husband's cousin's wife is also counting calories! She's not on here, but we talked for literally hours about foods and counting and the whole business. She's lost 100 lbs so far (with her doctors), but it was nice to talk to someone "in real life" who has the same problems and share new foods and solutions. Christmas morning breakfast with my in-laws in my upcoming scary danger zone, and she'll be there, so I hope that we can pool our will-power and watch each others' backs!
How is everyone else getting ready for the holiday weekend?
Hey yall! For me, the holidays aren't too bad because I live far away from my family, so I just have a small Christmas. But the parties...so much food! And I LOVE chocolate! I snacked on carrots before I ate lots of cake at my office party, which made me feel semi-healthy. But I'm going on a trip after Christmas, and I'm terribleeee at making smart food choices when I travel. I just want french fries and milkshakes!
This week I got a new scale because my last one was dying. This new scale says I've lost more weight than I thought (2.8 pounds this week?)...I'll take it! I was stuck at 125 for weeks, so it's nice to finally break into the 110's...haven't seen that number on the scale in a looooong time!
SW: 151 (May)
Good luck to the rest of you ladies and Merry Christmas!
I weighed in on Thurs, but forgot to post here!
No change, but I'm nervous for the next weigh in! Of course I fell off the wagon for Xmas
I think I've missed two weigh ins, because I was being stupid, but I'm back on track. I have gained three pounds so I am now 108. I'll be back on Thursday for my weigh in and WILL lose weight! Good luck to everyone!
Current weight: 138 lbs.
Goal weight : 110 lbs. ( hopefully to achieve it this 2012)
Tag the thread, ladies and gentlemen -- it's moving to games and challenges forum tomorrow, iaw challenge rules.
No change, but I only started calorie counting 3 days ago ;)
Hope you are all doing better than me!
down to 184 today. Feel great to be back in my routine and drinking my 8+ glasses of water.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
