Default 10 pounds by Christmas - join me?

Well,

I need to keep myself motivated and have been trying to think about a reasonable goal for myself.

I want to aim for being 10 pounds thinner when I see my family at Christmas. I want to hear the comments "Wow, you are looking good" and I want to put on an outfit from my closet that will fit great and just skim over my curves (rather than hug them too tightly!)

I hope there are others out there who want to check in and keep each other going!

Mich

Default Surviving Halloween

Hey Veronic and Rodmik

Welcome to our challenge. I think that 10 pounds is reasonable and would really make a difference in my self esteem. I can't wait to feel my trousers fitting more loosely!

I have had a pretty good couple of days, although I was at a Halloween party last night and fell off the wagon with the little chocolate bars. They are just so tempting. I had had a really weigh in yesterday morning and then I wasn't careful during the day and this morning the scale was like 3 pounds heavier! That is crazy! I know that it is probably not for real, but it scared me into being better!

I really need to get my water in everyday too.

What plans are you following? How far along into them are you?

Cheers, Mich

I'm going to join. We are traveling to my parents for Christmas this year and it's been 8 years since we've all been to visit. Last time I just had my third child 6 weeks earlier so it was OK that I was heavy. But now it's almost 9 years later and I'm still huge! I really need to stay focused. I also want my clothes to flow instead of cling.

I had a blowout with wine at night! I'm following the warrior diet plan.
Nice to see a few of us here! I need to concentrate on toning and water big time.

Hi all, I'd like in on this - I have mini goal of 22 lbs, but 10 may be more realistic. Good luck to us all!

My goal was 30 but 10 is probably more realistic for now and more is always better!

No problems with me either. Haven't heard of carb cheaters????
Do you mean just taking in wrong carbs? It seems we are off to a good start with our goals although TOM for me, so I won't be weighing for a few days. Just making sure I stick with induction Have a great day everyone..........
