Well hi there again! I'm game for kicking weight to the curb. I'll need to get batterys for the cam to post a newer pic but no problem. Though my last pic is pretty current.
I seem to lose like a turtle this time around though!
I'd like to be back at goal by sept!

Do you want to post daily menus? I'm on day 2 induction also.

I'm in if you'll have me. My wedding anniversary is Sept 4th and I would love a slimmer me to show off with. If I lose 30lbs i'd should weight around 240 and that would be great. Are we going to have weigh in days? Just so I can know when to post a change.





Here are my pictures. We'll see if there is a difference in a month.

Cool Hello Everyone!!!

Everyone's invited to join....If you want to lose lbs thats what we are here for....I weigh myself only on Mondays but if everyone wants a different day that we can weigh in as a team then by all means we can do that too.....I would like this challenge to be strict but also to lend support to anyone that needs it.....Today is my 3rd day of Induction....1st 2 days went by rather well....We can post daily menu's or just daily card intake, I like to just post carbs, as long as Im under 20 a day, I will be honest with everyone if I cheat, well you will al know...thats the only way to be accountable and keep in check what I eat.

2cute4u_04: if you can only post your weight once a month, well thats ok too.....Maybe on the same day every month, like the 1st or something.

HI again Rodmick....great to see you here!!!!

Hello Bernice, I have read some of your posts, you are a great motivator we would love to have you with us....

Amya2922: Welocme, we are about the same as far as stats, I am currently 160 and want to be int he 130's by Sept....Good Luck!!!

Think I welcomed everyone if I didnt Im sorry its not intentional

Have a wonderful morning everyone

Day 2 down and day 3 starting. Since I've lced for ages but not really done induction I have a few ?'s. First are we doing net carbs after fiber subtraction? I'm finding a problem with Low bg's trying to do induction carbs. I ended up slightly over the last 2 days of induction due to late night bg drops and needing a protein/carb mixture snack. If I'm subtracting fiber the way the last book I read said I should be in line with induction levels though.
I'm doing a chart to see a pattern in my weight with my cycles. Can I just report when it changes downward instead of a set day?
I promise to tell ya'll if I cheat too!! I have an event on 6/4 as motivation so I shouldnt cheat(even with the pms~!).
Its nice to check in and see our list of challengers grew!

Well its already almost a finished day for me....1 more hour to go

I ate lunch a few hours ago.....

We ate at burger king (yes they have what they consider one here in Kosovo) LOL

I had 2 Whopper Juniors...(they are small and one patty a piece) Without the bread of course and that was all I ate Had water to drink, a 12 oz bottle....

Breakfast wasnt great but still within induction, a couple peices of bologna and Jalepeno cheese (gotta watch that cheese or its gonna get me)

Plus another 50.7 oz bottle of h2o....So doing pretty good on day 3....Remember to drink your water!!!!!

Rodmick......Yes we are doing Net Carbs.....I have been around 15 carbs a day so far....And I feel stuffed...I am also taking a supplement. Hope you have a wonderful day!!!


anyone joining we will start day 1 induction as of today....A few of us are already on Induction but I will go a few days farther than 14 and Im sure some of the others will too......Hope to have Lots of Losers....
By the way heres my starting stats.....I'm sure I have lost a couple already but I am making myself wait until Monday morning to weigh in again

We will do it SW/CW/GW Goal weight being what you want to be on Sept 1st, if need be we can stratch the challenge to Sept 15th just let me know if anyone wants too....Just copy and paste stats from the previous message

Hey I would love to join too! I need some motivation also, and it would help so much to be in this challenge. I am currently on my 3rd day of induction, and I am more than willing to stay longer,


I just need help uploading pictures, I have pictures on my computer I have tried to put up but they say it is too big, how do I make it smaller so I can use it?

I've been doing meat and eggs for the last 2 days so my numbers are really low. I'm going to stop in a couple of day. I just needed a jump start. I've been off tract for the last month and this has helped alot. I'm going to do induction after I'm done with the meat and eggs.

MePlus1: I love water, it's getting me to exercise consistantly that is the problem. I've been getting better but I've got a long way to go.

Melska: when you have the picture you want click on it and then go to file and click on edit then click on image. next click on stretch/skew and then change the picture as needed. This is for windows. I have no Idea how to do it for Mac. Hope this helps.

Bernice

Thumbs up Up for the challange

Hi, I would love to join your challenge. I am over 45 and starting my third year of University in September. I feel out of place both because of my age and my weight. So many of my fellow students are in such good shape, but they are under 25, also.

My friends at school are all so young, but they don't seem to mind my age or weight. I act younger than I am anyway. But my weight really bothers me.

I will post a pic next week. This weekend will be hard, big wedding to go to. I know I'll blow it, but at least it will be on my mind. So, I'm sort of considering my starting point to be Monday, and will weigh in on Mondays.

I'll be doing the insulin control diet I think. I am getting the book next week. I think that's the best one for me because I am badly hypoglycemic.

Looking forward to the challenge. Perfect timing!

Best of luck!

Barb
