Well this goal was a complete fail for me in 2013.

However I did it successfully the year before, and it was such a huge help for me I want to take a run at it again, and lose a pound per week by Jan 1, 2015.

Who's with me?

Some goals really are just hot air, but others are just hugely helpful. This one is hugely helpful to me, it encapsulates everything I need to do daily to lose 1 pound per week. So I'm ready to lose in 2014. GAME ON!

I am making lots of progress! Goal setting and lists make a big difference in my life. Might be too late for this year, but, I will have all my ducks lined up by Jan 1st.

Yesterday put the battery in my pedometer. Today opened a new pkgd one to find how to do the stride setting, I couldn't remember that. I have to input both stride and weight (had forgotten that about weight). In past setting-up of pedometers, I always knew my weight but I don't right now, so I'll also have to weigh in addition to pacing off my stride and figuring that out.

Also went the gym today; it's not great but it will work. I hate, hate, hate to spend the money but it will be worth it and is cheaper than the Y.

I'm going to start this again, too.

Right now I am weaning myself off unhealthy food, and am going to weigh, I think I've gained at least 20; and am going to start walking again.

As soon as I weigh, probably this weekend, I'm going to restart this challenge. I need it; NEED it, to help my focus and make progress.

Hi! I am going to give this challenge a go.I am on another website call Loose It. This month their weigh in is every Tuesday because Tuseday was the first day of October. Last Tuesday I was 174lbs. So I am hoping to be 173lbs this Tuesday. This is my first day on the No S Diet. No snacks from tomorrow.

The problem is though I meet a friend every Thursday morning at a coffeshop. Could I use that morning as a special morning and not have any snacks for the rest of the day? It's the only day of the week that I get a treat.

My goal to reach is 140 lbs.

I'm glad to see you both posting!

I've had lots of turmoil in my personal life and haven't been able to do any challenges on any teams.

However I still love this challenge and it still works for me, and I WANT to do it.

I just added 40 hours work to my weekly schedule, which is a true answer to fervent prayer. So I'm working 75 hours a week now, temporarily, for the next 3 weeks. Had a really rough May & June, time of adjustment to new circumstances in July, and now for Aug looks like I'll be meeting myself coming and going. Can I start this?

Probably wouldn't be wise.

However one thing I did think of the other day is, I'm just going to eat produce and things I can bake at work, like chicken, steak, and hamburgers, while I don't have a kitchen. I can still do that . . . so maybe that's what I need to do.

I am DEFINITELY not NO WAY ever counting calories again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it works for you, more power to you, but NEVER ever ever again for me, personally. I am sooooo happy No S freed me from that mentality and from "diet head" and diet obsession. Never going back!

Your mention of fasting reminds me I want to do some juice fasting when I get a kitchen. Fasting, or just "chicken and veggies", is not part of No S. But a wide array of many faiths and lifestyles have fasted, and it works for them. I was hooked when I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" for free on Hulu.com. I want to do it, bad. I would "reboot my life" with a juice fast right now if I could; I'll settle for baked meat & fresh produce, instead.

I'm doing well so far on my fusion of NoS and The Fast Diet. My next weigh in day is Wed and I've already lost 1 pound! My starting weight was 199.

I had a fast day on this past Wed and will have another on Monday (which will be my standard fast day) Right now, I'm only doing 1 fast day a week.

I'm also counting calories the whole week because I am not able to trust myself not to overeat even on No sweets/seconds. . . days. I am allowing myself approx 300 extra calories a day on the weekends. Weekdays I keep it under 1800 calories and on the weekend 2100. We'll see how that goes.

I'm really enjoying this plan for now, and fingers crossed, it will be the one that I stick with the rest of my life.
7.24.13 #1 (fast day) max 500 calories. Success!
7.25.13 #2 Success!

Time to re-boot for 2013! I love this Challenge; there is something about it that is just right for me. So I am selfishly re-booting it for the New Year.

I did this challenge in 2011 on this team, met my goal, and kept it off.

2012 was a different story; not only did not meet my goal, I also gained and am starting out 2013 at 262lbs, plus 2012 was a very bad year for me personally in every way; STILL didn't get a job, was homeless 3 months, etc. So I don't mind saying I'm GLAD 2012 is over and am very happy to welcome in 2013.

Anyone want to join me?

emoticon I'm ready! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We're on a journey to learn what it takes in RL (real life) to lose a pound a week, the No S way, and journal it here to keep ourselves accountable.

Who wants to join us? You can join us anytime.

Simply reply to sign up. You can sign up anytime.

And tell us how you plan to do it; what will you change? What time management sacrifices will you make in order to eat healthier than you are now, and in order to exercise more or more consistently? What are you willing to give up, in order to add healthy food prep / more exercise to your day? How do you plan on increasing consistency?

Some of us are modifying the challenge to accomplish a specific No S component they are having the most trouble with, instead of weight loss. Or to intentionally lose less than a pound per week. I'm so big I've got the pound a week covered, LOL. But others are starting out this journey much slimmer, which is great of course.

Or, they know they lose much much much more slowly than that. That's fine too; everyone is different, and everyone needs to make the challenge work for them, where they are at in their Journey.

Even a 1/4 lb a week is a stick of butter gone! 1lb takes 4lbs of pressure off of our knees. And if you only lose 2-3lbs every 5-6 months, think how much you would have GAINED before during that time.

Be sure to list your goals; the challenge is to lose, but the goals tell the healthy habits, babysteps, and Lifestyle Changes that will provide the HOW you lost it, provide accountability for those things during the challenge, once they are accomplished will provide a firm foundation for weight maintenance.

I re-started last week and faced the scale. Major baby step. I weighed in at 265.

Last Tuesday Oct 12, made it EXACTLY 12 weeks til the end of the year.

This past week was rough and I'm not sure I lost anything but I will still weigh in. I weigh in in the afternoon which is not optimal, but, it's the best time for me to get to ministorage where the scale is. Being homeless is not for wimps, that's for sure.

Even if I lost nothing, re-starting made me soooo much more aware of what I put in my mouth, and how much (or little) I'm moving. Being mindful and intentional, is a great gift in itself.

Welcome Remy!

Well my update is, I'm ready to re-start but restarting is harder than imagined. I am struggling with time mgmt (need to spend more time at ministorage, after hours, to make this work), and I am struggling with cooking and food prep while homeless. I did get an electric skillet from Goodwill for $10, and have other things packed in ministorage (hot pot, toaster oven, etc). I need to unearth them, set them up on shelf, etc. Meanwhile I am concentrating on veggies mostly, as it was just too easy to eat way too much bread for awhile in my situation. I am still using ice chests at ministorage to keep perishables.

So I still have to set up ministorage to be able to use my stuff there, and, even then it will be on a very limited, difficult basis.

On the positive, being homeless is much less stressful than living with the dysfunctional family I was staying with. So my stress is down in one way, and up in the other ways related to being homeless.

I'm taking the scale out of my car because I thought I would take it somewhere to use it, but, that didn't happen. So after I set up ministorage space to use it in, I will use it there, instead.

And that will be starting over for me, when I'm able to weigh and push the re-start button.

Hi joining this challenge today.
My 4 biggest weaknesses are sugar, snacking, seconds, and late night eating. I believe if I work my way up to cutting out all of these in a gradual manner,I will be able to lose pounds and lose inches. I like to walk, dance, and lift weights as my forms of exercising. I am starting off with 143 lbs and by next week, I hope to have gone down a pound. emoticon

Carol, you are sure going through it. I don't know what I'd do without a fridge to keep freggies in. I've eaten a lot of fast food over these years on No S, but I usually have half portions and a lot of freggies with it. But it is temporary. I think you can maintain, which is a feat in itself.

I'll check in periodiaclly. I don't think I can aim at a pound a week. In fact, it's likely I'll just maintain if I don't change anything. emoticon

Thanks Jan & Mary.

Tomorrow is July 1st; is everyone ready? Ready or not here it comes. The year is half over.

This thread and challenge needs a reboot. Sorry I have been away; the past two weeks I've been working from noon til 9pm or 10pm, at minimum wage job and am still exhuasted.

However, I have a 3-day weekend this weekend with Monday off.

I have the next two weeks to move my stuff out of garage and shed, into ministorage.

I have been eating crap food - even dollar menu stuff from drive throughs which is unheard of for me. So I don't expect a good weigh-in. I need to get back on the fruit and veggies wagon, including figuring out how to do that without a kitchen.

Simply a new lifestyle change to navigate; that's all. A new challenge. Another test.

Going to a fireworks thing tonight from a small local town, not my own town but the one my piddly pay job is in. I'm looking forward to it. Weigh-in and church tomorrow, and moving packing and job hunting Monday.

That's all I know.

Maintaining IS better than gaining!! Much, much better!!

Okay, so I have been away from SP for a bit - vacation & life in general just getting in the way - but I am trying to get back in the swing of things again.
Yesterday, I weighed in at 193.
No loss, but no gain, so I am okay with it for a new start.

Is Oolala still away? I can't remember how long she said before she would be back.

Carol, I wish I could help you somehow. If there is anything I can do from across the country, please let me know. You have been a rock for me on many occasions & I wish I could now reciprocate.

Update: today at work had to make *special* arrangements to get Thurs & Fri, June 28 & 29, off to move.

Came home tonight: date has changed, is now July 31 that we must be out by, not June 30. Sigh . . . Have to call work first thing tomorrow morning 7am . . .

I won't be on Sparkbreak for another month, and have a month's reprieve to find a place to stay . . .

Thanks Mary. ~INDYGIRL talks about this alot; for one whole year she was plateaued. However now she is losing again. During the year she kept eating right, exercising, and eliminating negativity, and NOTHING changed. It will eventually though, if you just keep doing The Right Stuff.

So I'm having personal crisises again, due to unemployment. So I will be sooooooo glad to get a job and this cycle of "not in my control" crisises. Currently, a family took me in so I wouldn't be homeless. But their leasing agent called and the owner of the house wants their house back, so they have to move. They are moving into a smaller place, no room for me. So I also have to move by June 30; I'll move my stuff into ministorage I think; and who knows if I'll find another place to sleep. Won't be able to weigh nor have a fridge to eat right. While this is going on, at my minimum wage job the mgr went to Georgia for 2 weeks to help open a new restaurant, so I have extra hours at work so I have less time to move. The extra hours make little difference to my paycheck, because the pay is so low. The job is very exhausting, lots of physical labor which I have been appreciating (more exercise!), but I need all my time and energy to move, especially as I have to move myself due to having no money to pay to have it done. During these next two weeks while she is gone, the rule is you have to show up or get someone else to work your shift for you - no call outs. Which is exactly the two weeks I need to move.

Just alot of stress. I will probably resume this challenge after July 1st. Life is butting in, right now.

Carol,
I have those weeks too. Where I am now, I have been before. I don't seem to be able to get out of the BMI "obese" range and into the "overweight" range. Like many people here on Spark, this is not my first time trying to lose weight. It seems so simple-just lose five more pounds-after all, I have lost 20 since that last awful visit to the Dr. in January 2012. But like I have done in 2010 and many times before, I stall here and the yo-yoing begins. Is it "set point," lack of discipline(always seeking the exception to the rule), or something more psychological or spiritual? I am still working on that. I just know that everyday, I must get up and be willing to begin again. Sometimes I succeed, but not always; but there is hope! "Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us" Hebrews12:1 Paul probably didn't have "weight loss" in mind when he wrote it, but it helps me and I am trying to show my appreciation and respect for His gift of life.

I gained two, and lost two. I did not change my SparkPage weight.

I am very disappointed in myself.

I know it's all due to stress and circumstances.

I shall continue eating sensibly, exercising, and be intentional about stress mgmt, trusting in the Lord, and deep breathing.

One positive: if not for having this challenge and goal, it's very possible I would have just gained and gained.

Hi Team,
Ready or not, I weighed in at 153.5. Since there have been a lot of family celebrations in the past month, that weight is good. Good Luck to all!

Is everyone ready for weigh-in tomorrow? I am. Had some personal epiphanies this week, that kind of derailed my focus on weightloss. I don't expect to have lost alot, but good bad or ugly I'm weighing in in the morning.

How is everyone else doing?

Thanks Mary!

For the next 4 weeks only, I'm going to record the fractions of pounds that I weigh, because I'm really excited about my weigh-in on my 50th birthday in 4 weeks.

I have gained a couple pounds, 258.2 this morning. Yes I've been slacking and letting diet slide, which is why I went back to salad prep etc last weekend; I knew it was needed.

My current focus is mini-goal of LOSING AS MUCH AS I CAN IN ONE MONTH FOR MY 50TH BIRTHDAY.

This morning I weighed in at 154.5, so I am almost back to the pre-wedding weight of 154. That is 2 pounds down since last week!

Congratulations Carol on your upcoming Birthday! I wish you great success on the awesome gift you are giving yourself-reved up health!

Is everyone ready to weigh-in tomorrow!?? I am really really excited and pumped. Not because I think I've lost any, but because I just realized an important milestone in my life is about to happen: in exactly 4 calendar weeks I will turn 50.

50 is big; and only happens once.

I have 4 weeks to rev up the losing and exercising and eating healthy to lose as much as possible. And weighing in tomorrow morning is the starting place.

I'm so glad your son's wedding was wonderful, Mary! Yes the exception of "sometimes not all the times', is not for all the time, nor every day nor every meal, of the long weekend of special events, etc. But aren't you glad you have No S and don't need to feel guilty? Reinhard says we are "re-learning moderation", which is a process to re-learn. We're in the remedial classes, LOL. And you will always remember celebrating your son & daughter-in-love's wedding, including, yes, the food.

I was up a pound point something on Wednesday, but also had a couple crisises going on in my personal life and was constipated.

So I am not really sure what I weigh.

What I AM sure of, is, I have done a really crappy job of working on stress.

If I am up I am up; not proud of it but also not going to stress about it. I'm going to record my weight and weigh in on Tuesday.

Am starting a new Summer Challenge on The Step Diet team; that and getting back on fresh veggies, and getting back on drinking water, should put me to rights. I have been drinking too much tea and ran out of xylitol and then stevia for the tea, so I have been drinking it with sugar. Not much, but still, I just don't drink sweets, so it's more than I'm used to.

I only have this weekend to do my weekly organizational plan, meal plan, fruit and veggie prep, and batchcooking. Full week next week every minute of every day.

So I'll focus hard this weekend on doing the walking challenge, going to bed early tonight and tomorrow night, and working all day long every day to get the salads etc and right stuff to eat in the fridge prepped and ready. A week's worth, anyway.

They don't have organic lettuce here, but a local store had Earthbound Farms 5oz square containers of organic lettuce on sale for $2.50, and there was a coupon on one for $ .50 cents off when you buy two, and they doubled the coupon so I got a dollar off two. So I got 2 for $4. I'll empty half of each carton into something else, and in the room I created I'll add salad veggies, like shredded carrots, grape toms, chicken breast, celery, cucumber, zucchini, etc., and make 4 salads for $4 that way. That will instantly take care of 4 lunches (or 4 dinners) for this weekend / next week. I love a good fresh salad with lots of garden veggies. Add leftover meat (or BBQ, or tuna salad, or a diced up chicken breast, or shredded chicken from the freezer from a previous batchcooking or crockpot session), and it's a meal.

Besides garden salads I'm also making tuna salad, salmon pasta salad and patties, tabouli salad, cucumber salad, and cooking chicken breasts this weekend.

I sometimes cook up those 10lb bags of chicken leg quarters when they go on sale (in the crockpot because that's easy schmeezy), and make 1/3 BBQ, 1/3 plain or rotisserie-normal flavor, and 1/3 buffalo. Then I debone and freeze in 1-cup bags and defrost as needed for sandwiches, salads, or quesadillas. I also like salsa flavor, Jamaican, lemon pepper, and Montreal chicken seasoning flavor.

Right now I have family packs of chicken breast that were on sale at Aldi's for $1.69 lb. Aldi's was closed Monday for Memorial Day; when I went in Tuesday I thought the chicken would be long gone; sold out. But because they were closed Mon, they had pkgs of chicken breasts with $4 off stickers on them. What a steal! I am single but still bought 3 family packs. 3 breasts fit in one quart freezer bag. I didn't have time to cook them so I just froze them raw. Will defrost a couple bags and cook up a couple different flavors this weekend of those.

I bought ear plugs and they really do work well, thank you Jesus, re, going to bed early and being able to sleep. Will definitely use them every night as the teens are going to be out of school soon (OMG). Also my host family likes to stay up watching TV all night on Fri & Sat, so I'll definitely use them. Probably tonight.

My son was married last weekend, and the wedding was wonderful! My No S diet rules focused on the "except sometimes" way too much and I now have 2.5 pounds to lose again!
So my Tuesday weigh in was 156.5- that is up 2.5 pounds. The worst part about bending the rules is that it is so difficult to get back on plan. I am doing better today, but getting back on plan Sunday would have been more responsible.

emoticon Well, if you haven't read somewhere else on here i gained 10 lbs of fluid in 3 days on our fishing trip. emoticon I didn't take my water pills as i should have and ate some salty foods too. I'm down 4 lbs since Monday and hope the 6 will be gone soon. I'm on mostly liquids and pudding,eggs because i'm waiting for my upper partial too come back after breaking the last crown i had that wasn't in the partial. emoticon Sure hope it fits better anyway. So my goals are not doing to well yet, as i can't walk either, i am in a lot of pain in my leg, kidney area and pelvis. No i haven't gone to the dr. as i thought it was a kidney stone but now think it's not. Just waiting it out. emoticon

Hi Carol, thanks, but I don't think I am really losing fat yet. I think getting the blood sugar under control is allowing my body to purge excess fluids from inflammation etc. I expect the weight loss to slow down, losing fat takes a lot more time and effort. Good Luck to all! Wise choices are making us healthier!emoticonemoticon

Well I had a disappointing weigh-in: down a fraction of a pound. So I'm leaving my SparkPage tracker where it is, since I dislike fractions.

I tell myself at least I didn't gain; and at least I lost some.

But the reality is I should be losing alot more, for my size, and also if I want to see Onederland by Dec 31.

I finally got pedometer batteries yesterday; it will help to wear my pedometer again and see how many steps I'm getting in.

And Reinhards 14 minutes of Shovelgloving (ST for me in Fitness Tracker in lieu of shovelgloving, thanks. And lift dumbells to the beat of a Christian radio song 3X a day).

7. Weekly menu plan & batchcooking / food / meal prep. Being proactive in this dept is really important to me, makes or breaks my success.

8. Weekly time mgmt planning in Franklin Covey Planner - I usually do this on Sundays.

9. Add stress mgmt reading and eventually goals.

Today is May 21st already. The time is just flying by; June 30 will be the half way point of this year, ALREADY, and will be here tomorrow the way time is flying by.

Is everyone ready to weigh-in tomorrow and post your weight and other goals?

This challenge really helps me be mindful and intentional; the time is just flying by but this challenge is like a tickler file in my brain, reminding me to do what I should do, daily, in order to have a good weigh-in, weekly.

So join us if you haven't, and press the re-start button if you have.

Thanks Mary for the encouragement.

I do have earplugs on my list. The first store I checked at, in their pharmacy section, they only had the wax kind (no thank you). Foam was what I wanted so I'm glad to hear the foam ones worked for your hubby. Definitely getting some tomorrow.

I understand about giving up; before finding SP I'd given up. I was so jaded it took me 3 months after hearing about SP to create an account. Then another 5 months before I joined a team or made a SparkPage. I vow I will not forget where I came from, even yes, that place of having given up and believing nothing could help me.

Thank you SparkPeople and Chris Downy!!!!!!

Carol I am sorry you had to go through a stressful time that put on the weight. About your sadness comments, I think what is most sad is when people stop trying and accept being overweight as who they are. Even if we get stuck at a weight, or even add a few; trying to find ways to restore health and wellness is so much better than not.

Re: the sleep, my husband had to work nights a few years ago, and we have 7 children. It wasn't always conducive to sleep, so he used ear plugs. The little foam ones used at shooting ranges and loud industrial areas.

Good luck with the rest of your plan! It sounds emoticon

MARYSTAN and NEWGOALS you are doing great!!! Congratulations!!! Sharon it's harder to lose when you are closer to goal, so just hang in there, we will succeed if we don't give up. You'll be posting a loss here soon, if you really do sleep and walk 2 miles etc.

I weighed in at 255.8; since I don't do fractions I'm changing my SparkPage to 256, which means I'm one pound down this week. Go Me!!!!!!!!
emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon fat emoticon

I was thinking this morning how sad it is to be happy about 255.8 (morbidly obese). But it's better than 315lbs!; and how much healthier I am than I was then. And I was thinking this morning how close I am to getting back to my Jan 1st weight; which is sad that I gained a little back after the first.

I've decided to include my weight from Jan 1st so I can track progress for the entire year of 2012.

Then I looked it up on the previous thread,
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
ard_thread.asp?board=15238x33739x44030
534


. . . and I found my 1/01/12 weight was 257 lbs, which means I already passed my Jan 1st weight!!!!! WOOOO HOOOO! It must have been later in January this year that I went (even) lower.

01/01/12 - 257lbs
03/13/12 - 261lbs
04/03/12 - 264lbs
05/08/12 - 257lbs
05/15/12 - 256lbs

Looking back I see when I was super stressed Mar & Apr, it shows because I packed it on. Stress Mgmt is going to go on next week's list.

MY UPDATED GOALS - HOW I'll do it, and WHAT I'll change:
This is really helping me to focus on these, and I am seeing improvement, in some depts more than others. My goal this week is to maintain the improvements and make gains in the other areas, so that I can maintain my weight loss without yoyoing and waffling.

1. Reach onederland by Jan 1st by having a daily priority focus on walking and strength training (ST). Walking daily, via The Step Diet, and Reinhard's 14 minutes of "Anything". And Reinhards 14 minutes of Shovelgloving (ST for me in Fitness Tracker in lieu of shovelgloving, thanks. And lift dumbells to the beat of a Christian radio song 3X a day).
**I HAVE FAILED AT THIS, RE, CONSISTENCY, AND RE, DOING IT AT ALL. SCHEDULE IT AND MAKE IT A HIGHER PRIORITY.

2. Eat a big breakfast with protein, 500+ calories.
**THIS REALLY WORKS FOR ME, AND I'M DOING OKAY ON THIS ONE.

3. Follow No S Diet every N day, no sweets, no snacks, no seconds.
**I'LL GIVE MYSELF A THUMBS UP; I'M ABOUT 80-85% COMPLIANT. I'M OKAY WITH THAT; THUMBS UP.

4. Weighing daily, recording my weight weekly on Tuesdays.
**DEFINITELY NOT DOING THIS AND NEED TO GET BACK IN THE HABIT. JUST WEIGHING ON TUESDAYS IS A STRUGGLE; IF I RE-INCORPORATE WEIGHING DAILY INTO MY MORNING ROUTINE, THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE TUESDAY STRUGGLE.

5. 10pm get ready for bed; 11pm lights out.
**I'M GOING TO START SLEEPING IN MY CAR IF I HAVE TO AT 11PM, RE, THE ENVIRONMENT I'M IN IS NOT IN MY CONTROL AND IT'S GETTING OUT OF HAND.

6. Weekly produce run & produce prep. Being proactive in this dept is really important to me, makes or breaks my success.
**I'VE DONE THIS AS I CAN, RE, CASH ON HAND.

7. Weekly menu plan & batchcooking / food / meal prep. Being proactive in this dept is really important to me, makes or breaks my success.
**I GIVE MYSELF A B; WILL SHOOT FOR IMPROVEMENT TO AN A.

8. Weekly time mgmt planning in Franklin Covey Planner - I usually do this on Sundays.
**I'M ACTIVELY WORKING ON THIS SO IT BECOMES "NORMAL" AGAIN. I'M SEEING IMPROVEMENT.

To keep the weight loss going I will.
1. Eat on a regular schedule - to include breakfast no later than 9am
2. I will have protein at every meal - my biggest weakness
3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
4. Exercise 4-5 times a week

It's getting harder to lose weight during "that time of the month," but I'm not going to beat myself up over that right now.

Hi Again!emoticon

I am back! Carol tracked me down, and reminded me of this challenge. I joined March 31, but did not lose anything all of April. I discovered that my glucose levels were bouncing all over the place,(I am Insulin Resistant) and had to use glucose meter to normalize them. Since then I have lost 5 pounds. On March 31 my starting weight was 162 lbs., nothing in April, May 1 -160 lbs., May 8 -158 lbs., and today May 15 -157 lbs.

To keep the weight loss going I will.
1. Eat to keep my blood sugar under control
a. three meals, plus 1-2 snacks keeping the carbs under 30 g at each meal/snack
b. eliminate any carbs that raise blood glucose above 120mg/dl 2 hours after eating
2. Exercise 150 minutes each week to decrease insulin resistance

I guess that's it for now. I know it's not exactly NoS, but I am working with in the guidelines of my Dr. and nutritionist. My ultimate goal is a healthy weight and as few medications as possible. Right now I am obese, when I get to 153 I will only be "overweight." My primary motivation is health.

Thanks Carol for the reminder!emoticon

I hope everyone had a great mother's day! I am not a mother and usually dread the day, but had a good one this year.

Is everyone ready to weigh-in (if this is your day) and re-state your goals? How will you do it? What will you change?

This is my last day off before working 3, so I'll be back tonight, after that won't be back til Saturday.

How will you do it? What will you change?

For the coming week of Tues May 15 - Mon May 21, please state or re-state your goals, and specify HOW you will do it, WHAT you will change. Change up and review what is and isn't working.

Here are my goals:
MY GOALS - How I'll do it:
1. Reach onederland by Jan 1st by having a daily priority focus on walking and strength training (ST). Walking daily, via The Step Diet, and Reinhard's 14 minutes of "Anything". And Reinhards 14 minutes of Shovelgloving (ST for me in Fitness Tracker in lieu of shovelgloving, thanks. And lift dumbells to the beat of a Christian radio song 3X a day).
**I HAVE FAILED AT THIS, RE, CONSISTENCY, AND RE, DOING IT AT ALL. SCHEDULE IT AND MAKE IT A HIGHER PRIORITY.

2. Eat a big breakfast with protein, 500+ calories.
**THIS REALLY WORKS FOR ME, AND I'M DOING OKAY ON THIS ONE.

3. Follow No S Diet every N day, no sweets, no snacks, no seconds.
**I'LL GIVE MYSELF A THUMBS UP; I'M ABOUT 80-85% COMPLIANT. I'M OKAY WITH THAT; THUMBS UP.

4. Weighing daily, recording my weight weekly on Tuesdays.
**DEFINITELY NOT DOING THIS AND NEED TO GET BACK IN THE HABIT. JUST WEIGHING ON TUESDAYS IS A STRUGGLE; IF I RE-INCORPORATE WEIGHING DAILY INTO MY MORNING ROUTINE, THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE TUESDAY STRUGGLE.

5. 10pm get ready for bed; 11pm lights out.
**I'M GOING TO START SLEEPING IN MY CAR IF I HAVE TO AT 11PM, RE, THE ENVIRONMENT I'M IN IS NOT IN MY CONTROL AND IT'S GETTING OUT OF HAND.

6. Weekly produce run & produce prep. Being proactive in this dept is really important to me, makes or breaks my success.
**I'VE DONE THIS AS I CAN, RE, CASH ON HAND.

7. Weekly menu plan & batchcooking / food / meal prep. Being proactive in this dept is really important to me, makes or breaks my success.
**I GIVE MYSELF A B; WILL SHOOT FOR IMPROVEMENT TO AN A.

8. Weekly time mgmt planning in Franklin Covey Planner - I usually do this on Sundays.
**I'M ACTIVELY WORKING ON THIS SO IT BECOMES "NORMAL" AGAIN.

9. For at least awhile I need to check in on this thread daily, for accountability, especially til I get back in the habit of weighing and walking daily, etc.
**I'M ELIMINATING THIS ONE. I WILL CHECK IN IF I CAN GIVE ENCOURAGMENT TO OTHER CHALLENGERS, OR SHARE GOOD NEWS. CAN'T SPEND AS MUCH TIME ON SP AS I DID BEFORE I GOT MY PARTTIME JOB, AND I'M STILL JOB HUNTING FULL TIME IN ADDITION.

No, it's never too late, we will have new challengers joining us all throughout the year. Welcome NEVERGIVEUP57! And congrats on only having 35lbs to go.

I think we need an updated roll call of all challengers. I'll visit some pages, send a SparkMail, and post an updated list.

Hi, I know it is May.. :) and a tad late...

I have been on the No S Diet site since March and come back here to check things out...I would love to join the challenge...seems my S days are always so out of control..but willing to see how I can change them up a bit.

I have 35lbs to go, so perhaps .5 lbs per week (32 weeks left this year)...that would be 16 lbs. or .25 lbs per week..that would be 8 lbs.

Starting weight on SP: 186.8
Current weight from SP/No S: 178.6 (down 8lbs)
Ultimate Goal: 144
Challenge Goal w/.5lbs: 162.6
Challenge Goal w/.25lbs: 170.6
Goal by January 2013: TBD

Weigh in Monthly:

Jun 1
Jul 1
Aug 1
Sept 1
Oct 1

Straight No S Vanilla, with working on my S days.

emoticon New Goals!!!!!!!! That's not easy to do at your low weight.

I did remember to weighin yesterday morning. I remembered . . . while eating breakfast, LOL.

I was esctatic to see 256.6 on the scale . . . GO ME!!!! Like Janice I do not care for the partial pounds, the 'point somethings' on the scale, nor recording fractions, so I am just going with 257. Which means I'm still down 2lbs, yippeeeeeeeeee!!

I'm changing my SparkPage to two less pounds . . . that is always a fantastic feeling when you get to change your SparkPage weight . . .

Yes I'm telling myself no gain is good.

I'm also telling myself I have 8 months to change that number . . .

You have 8 months to change that number Janice!

I'm envious of your weigh-in, NEWGOALS!

I had totally no idea what to expect and was 261 this morning, but that was with clothes on. So I'm setting my tracker to 259 and am happy with that.
.
Thanks Janice for your support!

We can do this everyone! Just have to focus, have to REMIND ourselves, what it is that we REALLY want. (And more food, and inactive lives, is NOT it!!) We have to keep telling ourselves the truth.

Carol, I'm happy to hear that you have found employment, even if it is far, far away from being your dream job. Just to have gas money is really something in these economic times. So, hold your head high and be proud of yourself.

Well I'm working at a fast food sandwich shop for minimum wage, a popular one advertised on certain shows as healthy; and yes it does suck. But hopefully will provide pocket change for gasoline. First payday is Mon, but since I don't work there tommorrow my first payday is Tues.

I have not eaten a single thing there; nor will I.

Frankly I'm glad April is almost over; it has been a harrowing month for me; new incoming bombs every week, and sometimes daily. I won't get personal here, other than to say I've fallen down 7 times, I'm getting back up 8, and I'm pressing the re-start button.

How convenient is it, that May 1st just happens to land on Tuesday?! (as does Jan 1, 2013). So I'll definitely weigh-in Tuesday morning and post my weight here and change my SparkPage - good, bad, or ugly I'm pressing the button Tuesday.

Happy to have you, Newgoals2!

I seem to be stuck at 191, but am I upset about it? Heck No!
It wasn't too very long ago that I was yo-yoing between 199 and 205, week after week.
So, though I would have loved to say that I had lost a pound or more this week, I am pretty darned happy right where I am AND with the fact that I didn't gain!

No S (and particularly No Snacking) ROCKS!

But at least i did not regain -even if i am not counting calories anymore- and see this as a learning process.If i am able to eliminate some sweets on no S days, and maybe add less fat to my food, i should see progress next week. No S =common Sense

Carol, i too am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Carol, how did the interview go? I have my fingers crossed for you!

I am stuck at 192, it seems.
I am going to get back to 191 by next week so that I can move on. I'm trying not to stress about it because stress makes me eat non-stop!

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

I love the way he writes, too. Have you listened to any of his podcasts on www.nosdiet.com? I love hearing the way he puts things.

I weighed this morning and am a few percentage points down - about half a pound, instead of the pound and a half to two pounds I should be down. But I just started walking again.

It's so easy to blame my lifestyle issues here on eating late at night. I stay gone all day to avoid the drama, then come in after 10pm, between 10 & midnight so the kids will be in bed and kid drama will be over, and by then I'm hungry! Yes it's so easy to blame, but blame means "b-lame". It's really lame, to blame.

I need to start taking 2 lunches like I used to do; while I'm cooking breakfast, also cook & make 2 meals to take with me for lunch & dinner. So having 100% compliance with no late eating this week, and walking 2 miles at a minimum all 7 days, and weighing each morning all 7 days this week, are my mini-goals. It will take more advance prep, re, preparing 3 meals each morning, prepping veggies the night before. I used to do all of that . . .

So as I was saying, I was 264 point something last week, and 264 this week. Like Janice I don't care for the point somethings; so even tho I lost almost 1/2 a pound, I'm counting both weeks as 264. With counting both weeks as 264, how am I doing? Not too well so far, but April is a new month and I'm not giving up on reaching Onederland by Jan 1st, 2013.

I'll have to re-work the below, but for now I'm on the way to an interview, so here is the old list of goals, as there is nothing quite like seeing it in black & white, and checking up on oneself:

I do well on "N" days. I really need the structure, I guess. I'm a little afraid of the "S" days! I need to add some structure to them. Maybe I'll say "once" instead of "sometimes." Have a sweet once. It's the sweets that are difficult for me! And then when I add sweets to a snack or a second helping, I end up having a second helping of the sweet and having a snack of something sweet, and then it just turns into a binge! So, I'm going to allow myself one sweet on "S" days. I prefer not to snack or to have a second helping, because, again, it just feeds my "binge mode" mentality.

That's the lovely thing about this "Diet:" everyone can tweak it according to their needs. Reinhard is really brilliant! I love the way he writes and just ordered the book. He really wants to help others and isn't really interested in making a profit. I'm always suspicious of the doctors who have products attached to their programs.

I hope you're all doing well.
