Anyone have any fried chicken they can send me?
Please count me in. I've never joined a CC group before so I am not sure how this works. I'm 52 yo at 184 AND 5'5". CC wants me to get to my college weight of 130 but I would be happy at 140. CC tells me it will take a year. I think I am more determined than that and want to have the weight off by my birthday in October. so..as I said before...count me in (and explain what that means :)
Yeah -- CC wants me at 130 but I'm aiming for 145. I'm glad to see you here -- it's a little tougher as you get older but we can do it! You might not make the entire 44 lbs by Oct. because those last lbs take a long time to come off ... but if you're 2/3 or 3/4 there ... you'll feel fantastic!
I woke up with a major salty fried craving and I can hear the little voice in my head saying "just one meal won't hurt."
I say pshaw on that little voice! It's a fat little voice.
I'd love to be part of this group! I'm 25yo, 5'7", started at 210.5lb, and after 11 weeks of healthy eating am now down to 176.5! I'm determined to be 140lb by the end of this year , although CC says it will take me until June next year. I've always yo-yo'd up and down, but this time I'm planning to lose it all, and lose it for good!
Great job so far Dovetail!
Thanks guys! It really helps being on here - so many inspiring ppl!
very inspiring, DT.
Checking in: I'm hoping for a better day today than yesterday. I didn't really go off plan yesterday - 1 small chip & 1 bite of bacon off my friends lunch plate - but I just felt miserable & hungry all day. I woke up hungry with a craving for salty fried foods & it stuck with me all day. I couldn't watch tv because every food ad made me insane -- and I don't even LIKE dominos pizza.
but I knew it wasn't because I was hungry. I'd had plenty of nutrients & great healthful food during the day. It was because my "toxic hunger" was po'd at me for ignoring it. So I soldiered on.
And this morning, while I can't say I'm thrilled at the thought of my lunch time salad ... I am not pouting over it.
Day 10. 32 days to go on the 6 week detox.
Woaaaw Dovetail, that is sooooo inspiring.. you are going to be my motivation... When I work out today, and i feel tired and i feel like stopping, im gonna think about you and how much you accomplished!!!
Everyone. good luck for this week, hopefully we ll all drop a few pounds! My weigh in is on friday... crossing my fingers!!!!!
Me me me!!! Am I too tall? lol... I am 5'8"and 190 LB. I was at my best at 140..... I just got a new gym membership (again, I did it before and did well till my dad got sick and passed away, then I gave up). So here I go again.
I used get lots of cravings from the skinny chick inside of me, for apples, celery, ryvita, that sort of thing.... I can shut her up with a piece of cake usually. Now she's too fat to talk.
geckogirl, I don't think I have ever had a skinny girl in me saying eat fruits and veggies which is why I am the weight I am. I will try to do some soul searching today to see if I can find her. I am sure there is a skinny girl in all of us. unfortunately I don't think I will find her at lunch at olive garden today. I will try and do my best though. I have already looked up the calories for what I am getting-looks like I may be having cheerios for dinner tonight to offset lunch ;(
Great to see so many of us here to support and inspire each other.
I am, as of this morning, officially down to my heavy weight -- 10 lbs down from my OMG that just can't be weight.
