Hello everyone.

KimiKat Welcome to the forum..

Snow white hang in there, your body was a burning machine the past few weeks and it's just hit a stable point I'm sure it will start up again.

As for me I did not stick to the diet over the weekend, as I was at the hospital and I ate when I could and didn't count calories.

So here is the stats


Day1 191.6
Day 2 190.2
Day 3 189.8
Day 4 189.2
Day 5 190.4 (that's a 1.2 lb gain.)
Day 6 & 7 I did not weigh myself
Day 8 190.2 so from friday till today I've lost .2 of a lb

Day 1 191.6
Day 8 190.2
loss to date 1.4lbs

I'm starting strong today so we will see what this week holds for me.

good luck everyone.

kimikat3 - The more the merrier! Thanks for joining in.

ElleBella - Hope you and the little one are both feeling better.

Snow White - Hang in there!!! I think our bodies rebel by trying to hold on to our fat stores. Believe me, I know it's so hard, but stick to your plan. Your body will give up the weight.

mommieof2 - I'm sorry to hear you were in the hospital! I hope you're doing better now. (Edit: oops, after reading your journal I see why you were at the hospital. Hope she can come home soon!)

My progress:

Day 1 - 177
Day 2 - 175
Day 3 - 174
Day 4 - didn't weigh
Day 5 - 174

Loss on challenge: 3 lbs


Here's hoping we all have a great week!!!

Day 1 - 177
Day 2 - 175
Day 3 - 174
Day 4 - didn't weigh
Day 5 - 174
Day 6 - 174

I'm jealous of your super-accurate scales! I've tried a couple of digital scales, which only read in increments of .5, and didn't seem to stay accurate for very long. I'm using a hand-me-down scale with a large dial and adjustable needle that I can reset to zero if it gets out of adjustment for whatever reason. I just measure in 1-lb increments. On the bright side, the bathroom floor in my house seems to be level and I have room to leave my scale sitting out. At my old place, the bathroom floor was very uneven and I had no room to leave my scale.

I expect I'll see a drop in weight soon, but since it's that TOM......... we all know how that goes.

Insanity, you're doing great! I picked up a Weight Watchers scale at Target...I got the cheaper one and it is extremely accurate! I hate those dial scales...lean forward gain, lean back lose. I cheat too easily with those! Wink

I did not weigh in today as you will see I am back at the hospital with my daughter. We will be here for about 3 days. I wished I could post a photo of her here even though she's sick she's still a little comedian. She was so dehydrated from vomiting and her fever being 104 that it took 3 times to get the iv in so she got some barbies and a coloring book with crayons I turn around and she has her foot up on the table and smiling ( just like her daddy when he's on the computer). Anyway I'm trying to stick to the plan here and get this weight off. You girls keep up the great work and I will keep fighting on my end to.

Mommyof2.. You poor things.. hugs on that .. you are doing steller.. your dd sounds so sweet.. You are in my prayers.. xo

Insanity.. the scale thing is all over the place.. I am not so sure my floor is so straight.. but it seams to be accurate.. I WI at dr office and it was the same.. funny how that works.. lol

Its just coming up dinner time..

today I ate well

B) egg and tea 3 bites
L) nothing.. was not hungry
D) meatloaf 3 bites and 2 bites steamed broccoli
as I have 2 bites left I just might have 2 bites a snickers bar?

My daughter is having fun doing a puzzel right now .. she was a bit sad as she did not well on her spelling test.. the pressure they put on these little ones to be perfect already is so frustrating .. her teacher gave her a.. well you better study harder talk.. arrrg.. I told her teacher that maybe she could have just said great job for trying.. hmmmm.. might grow securitity dont you think.. Oh well .. only 3 more weeks and they are out for a fun summer break! Very Happy

Ok.. off to make din din.. Have a super night all.. xo

Random question for you all...
How did you adjust to not eating breakfast??? I have never been muh a breakfast person, but have always forced myself to eat something ( oatmeal... egg mcmuffin... Eggo waffles... Something). I'm findin now that I'm trying not to eat breakfast, I want it. I'm sure its a mental thing, more than a hunger thing... But idk how to get past it. I ate a yogurt yesterday and today just to get it out of my mind and allow myself to focus on work. I do drink two glasses of water first thing in the morning and through out the day. I'm not a coffee fan... Especially black (yikes). I LIVE black tea (unsweetened)...

I really want to succeed in this 20day challenge... But I'm starting to feel a bit discouraged...

Do to my tummy issues I do eat breakfast.. I try to stay 5 bite but my dr is not liking it.. she wants more like 30 bites... 10 breakfast, 10 lunch , 10 dinner kind of thing.. with a pc of fruit in the morning and yogurt in the night.. lol.. I still lose as Im still way low on calories.. and I am kinda cheating with only take 5 bites.. but I am having some issues with meds so I will be eating a bit more..eeek

The Book says you can eat 10-15 bites a day.. or more if you have to .. but you will not lose as fast is all.. Eat 5 bites of breakfast and see how you feel .. you might still burn cals like mad..??

Cheers! Deb.. off to bed I go.. Sleep


I must admit..2lbs a week would make me happy.. as no lbs is what I was doing before.. cheers

kimikat3 - I've done both breakfast and no breakfast in the past. I find it easier if I'm busy. Either way, I usually just fill up on no-calorie drinks like water and Coke Zero (can't stomach black coffee), although I have been drinking a large cup of tea with 2 tablespoons half-and-half lately for breakfast. It's only 40 calories and seems to help with the hunger. I also chew sugar-free gum sometimes if I'm feeling hungry. Usually any strong desire to eat will pass and I'll be fine for awhile, hopefully until lunch.

mommieof2 - Your daughter sounds so cool! What a trooper!!! You're both in my thoughts.

ElleBella - When I was doing strict 5 Bite, taking vitamins with such small meals bothered my stomach. I imagine real medicine could do the same. You'll still lose if you take a few extra bites. Very Happy


Tuesday, 6/5/12

Calories - 948
Tai Chi - 10 min
Walking - 30 min

I just took it easy to rest up and recover yesterday. I feel better today. I was pretty hungry most of yesterday. I had a 1pm meeting, so I ate some food at 11am, and the rest of my lunch after the meeting. I felt hungry most of the afternoon. As soon as I got home, I had a banana, then dinner shortly afterward. In the evening after dinner I had thoughts of eating extra food, but I'm glad I didn't. This challenge is helping me stick to my plan, so thanks Snow White for starting it, and thanks to everyone else for participating!

I was down to 173 today, yah!

Day 1 - 177
Day 2 - 175
Day 3 - 174
Day 4 - didn't weigh
Day 5 - 174
Day 6 - 174
Day 7 - 173

Kim, try having your black tea for breakfast if that's what you like. Sometimes I just have water and lot of times I have coffee with chocolate creamer, but I tend to do much better throughout the day if I just have something with no calories. I believe the Dr. is right that those first bites in the morning set the tone for your eating the whole day. I have never been a breakfast eater though, so that part wasn't hard to do.

My weight is going back down again and I can really tell a difference in my digestive system from replacing lunch with the bulletproof coffee and then doing a low carb 5 bite dinner.

Day 1 weight: 185.6
Day 10 weight: 183.2

total pounds lost on the challenge: 2.4

I'm really hoping that I can get this weight loss going again. Please see my journal b/c I need some advice about my mini-vacation this weekend!

Also, ladies we are half way through this challenge!!!!! Ten more days to go!!!! You can do it!!!!!! bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce

Debbie, thanks so much for the encouragement and I hope you don't show a gain b/c of your test! Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink
