I forgot to weigh and am not sure when I will remember to. I doubt that I have lost anything.

Today I'm 75.3kg so that's 0.4 off in second week.
Hope you did well this week.

Ah yes, Morticia. I was only just over the cut-off point at BMI 30.2 but that O word really jolted me into this current effort.

Hi White Lotus
I'm a teacher too, but at tertiary level (university and teacher-trainer). I stuck one of Son's merit charts over my desk and add a sticker for each kilo off. I give myself a gold star for each BMI point down. And the graph with the different colours for weekly loss and gain has often got me through times when I feel like giving up because I'm losing slowly. If you have any other ideas please let me know!
Good luck

Pan metron ariston.

It's great to get out of the obese zone.

Hi sunny--

Thanks for the BMI link. I too have several I like (especially the color ones). I'm a teacher and I like the idea of using stickers to show progress. I'm going to bring some home from my classroom to use on a calendar or chart or some kind.

Had my V-8 and Morningstar sausage patty this morning. On to work now where I now I can get an awesome salad. I'll take my own dressing.

Dear White Lotus
Thank you for joining my Xmas challenge. Good luck with your goals. Yes, it's a good idea breaking it down into smaller steps e.g. 10 lbs as you say.
You mention BMI, I set myself BMI mini-goals and give myself a gold star for every BMI point I drop. I also celebrate bigger milestones for every 5kg off.
Here's a good site for calculating BMI, which shows your place on a colour spectrum.
http://www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/Healthywei
ghtcalculator.aspx
You can even calculate values retroactively. I print it out every BMI point I drop and give myself a gold star sticker. I started out just in the red zone (obese) with BMI 30.2 and it's reassuring to see that I am now in the yellow zone, still overweight but no longer obese. I really look forward to the day I enter the green zone!

Pan metron ariston.

My goal is 145 but I'm really getting happy at 159. LOL.

Hey Morticia--

I'd be super happy to get back to 163 (my previous fat weight-lol!) 145 is top of the "normal" zone for BMI. Not sure I'll make and maintain that, so I'm looking at 10 lb. increments for now. Happy to be back.

OK! I'm in....yes, I've come slinking back yet once again. Really want to make a dent in not only weight (183 on 5'4" frame/obese!---joint and sciata pain--and cholestrol-would love to get off meds for that).

I will weigh in the morning, but 183's been where I've been hanging.

Making a healthy (Richard Simmons version) of tortilla soup for tomorrow night's Red Hats--I'll leave the tortilla strips off mine.

Had some awesome quinoa stuffed green peppers tonight. Guess no leftovers for me tomorrow.

Back to explore my breakfast options..I love Morningstar sausage patties. I want to avoid the reentry blockage issues that happen--sorry but Benefiber will be in my morning coffee (yeah-I don't give up my morning coffee--good news is I'll switch to water or Herbal tea the rest of the day.)

I lose slow. I lost a pound on 10/28 and have not lost since then.

Very impressive, Morticia. I look forward to the day when I can say similar numbers!
I'm 75.7kg today so I lost 1.1kg in the first week.
I hope everyone else did well.

Snail's pace is fine, what's important is that you are losing, Morticia Adams. The tortoise won the race.

I realise it's presumptuous of me to start a challenge here since I've only just joined this group, but I'm switching plans to South Beach in order to reach my goal so I hope some of the more experienced South Beachers here will join me and help me.
I've just realised that it's 50 days to Christmas, so that leaves 7 full weeks of dieting before the feast. My personal goal is to lose 4 kilos by then.
Would anyone care to join me? I really need your help.
I'll start by posting my weight today: 76.8 kg. If you don't want to say your weight just post every Friday how much you lost that week.
