Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
I am, but managed to eat WAY too much today!
3/4 of an Egg Mcmuffin
1 donut
1/2 of a side salad with ranch from Chili's
1 C. of Soup from Chili's
1/2 a basket of Tortilla chips and  salsa
1 Mallow Cup
3 oz of steak
Grilled potatos
1.5 pc garlic toast

I am tossing out a guess that the Grand Total is around 2000 calories.
Assuming I don't eat another thing tonight, I managed to atleast stay around my daily burn. I am going to lift some weights while watching TV tonight.
I forgot the small salad I had before dinner. So maybe 2150. Well, back to being more careful tomorrow!!!!

P.S.
Any chance that everyone wanting to use their real first name would sign each post with that name. I think it will reinforce the name and we will eventually get to know them!

Angie....way to go on the food today! And once again, I am so excited and relieved to see a mini candy bar on your list. We are not a bunch of straw and twig eaters trying to survive on 1200 cals a day and killing ourselves at the gym.

I will end my day around 1500 cals, 2100 burn. Not bad at all. Still slacked a little on the water, but I still have some time before 7pm to guzzle. If I go much past that I won't sleep well cuz I need to "go!"

Jenny, well start with a reasonable goal. Maybe 10 pounds at first. Set small goals like working out 3 times a week and drinking enough water.

Sarah, (girlfighting)....no way in day yet...anyone care when? How about Fridays? Crazy sounding I know,but most of us eat a little more, workout a little less and drink less water on Sat. and Sun, so it would give us the week to get back to normal and end the work week with a weigh in??????? Any thougts???

V, you seem very knowledgable and insightful. I think we have our primary nutrional resource in you!!!! Hope you don't mind! :)

Well, Have a great night all! I may check in later!

Cara....you sound like you would fit right in our "150's looking to be 135-140" group. Check us out under motivation. We are hoping for 3 more members for a total of 10 so we can have a nice small group.

Either way, I know you can do this!!!!

Welcome EVERYONE!!!! I am so excited to support and motivate each other! I think it is going to work this time!

I am ending the day at about 1400 calories....but still no exercise. I PLAN to get up and walk/jog in the morning before work.

Any opinions on when we should close this thread? I just don't want so many ppl that we cannot keep track. I was hoping to keep it a smaller knit group so that it is not so overwhelming? Any thoughts or objections?

Jen, good luck at the gym! I wish I could swing the payment right now! They are building a YMCA by my house. Maybe than!

Avila....swimming.....such a cool workout! What is C25K??????

We can SOOOO do this! It is 10 pm, I need to go to bed, but I feel hungry! So, I am going to bed! Eggs and Oatmeal in the morning!

Hit the grocery store for healthy stuff tonight! I am doing this.....one day at a time!

Anyone feel like they have deep issues with food that attribute to their struggles?????
I DO! Will explain at length later! This is a new revelation for me!

Well, good night all! I am ending the day with about a 500 cal deficit. More tomorrow!!!!!

Awesome advice Angie. And welcome Rany.
I find it hard to believe that you messed up your metabolism so badly it would take months to undo.
I am in the EXACT same boat going from 150 to 157 back down, back up, back down.....well you get the picture!

This time lets do this! Slow and steady! No starving or killing ourselves at the gym! Just healthy eating and reasonable workouts! Stuff we can live with for the long haul!!!!

Angie...Big bummer on the puking kid! But yes, you will be too busy (and maybe a little nauseous) to concern yourself all day with food! But don't FORGET to eat all together!

Baubles....5' 1"....wow, that is little! 140 is a great goal! Can't wait to help you get there!

Well, I had eggs and oatmeal for breakfast so far! Yum!
Ham sandwich and veggies bagged up for lunch!

I am determined to do some kind of exercise tonight!!!!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
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.
