I forgot to post my starting challenge weight and goal, as I weighed in on Wednesday.

Anyway, I'm starting at 205.4, and I am going to be VERY conservative and aim for a 7 pound loss (198.4) for this challenge. I am traveling next month to Colorado to my daughter's college graduation plus we're heading to South Dakota (Rapid City area) for some sightseeing afterwards, so I want to be realistic given all of the dining out, etc.

I have been snacking on beef jerky lately. My oldest daughter show's rabbits. When we go to a show, that's what I take to eat. Most of the time the food there is hot dog type stuff and I don't seem to have good luck eating hot dogs at all.

Thanks a bunch! I'm back on track now.

Just wish i ahd more ideas for snacking as a band/diabetic. Best results on FBS comes from a light salad around 9 pm with tomatoe/cuke and stick cheese copped up with italian dressing but that gets old after a while

Sadly over the last week when I was celebrating the excellent A1c i had for my diabetes of 5.8 down from 8.2 I celebrated in the wrong ways with pie and chocolate cake and jelly beans over the week before Easter. (hangs my heal low)

I saw my lap band surgeon this morning and she debated for a fill but i said No thanks. there was a 4 lb. gain.

So my goal is to lose 5 pounds by memorial Day. Let's get going!

Okay this will be a seven week challenge ending May 28 which is Memorial day.

My challenge to myself is to lose the 11 pounds I have gained with the last challenge. This is really going to be a test to my will power because I have a lot going on during this one. I go away for a three day family reunion this coming weekend. In May I have two grandchildren's birthdays as well as my own and Mother's Day plus I will be on vacation for three weeks I am really going to need all the incentive and willpower I can muster. Thank goodness I go for a fill on the 28th of this month.
