Doing better with plain water! Exercising is slacking mostly because it has been so hot! Was out of town over the weekend for my birthday celebrations, including my own. food choices were not excellent, BUT, had much less of the bad stuff than I would in the past.

I'm in too. I'm exactly 169 today. By Labor Day I would like to be 154. Hopefully this will be my next to last challenge. My next challenge is for October 27th. That is the day my husband and I will sort of renew our vows and get the sacrament of marriage in the church. I would like to be 134 at that time, but who knows? I will be 30 pounds lighter than when we first got married.

Is it possible to have a size 14 dress taken in to a size 6 or 8?

I'm 3 weeks out from surgery. Gallbladder and hernia repairs too, 4 surgeries in all. Hernia repairs were open surgery thru my caesarean scars. I'm not 'exercising' yet. (I LOVE exercise, so a bit disgruntled!)

I want in! BUT I'm not setting a weight goal. My sleeve is new. I want to set a co sustency goal:

1- use mfp every day

2- drink 2L Water every day

3- keep Protein above 60 g per day

I'm excited to see where consistently doing what I know works will get me over the next 46 days!

HW 118 kilos-- 260 lbs

SW 98 kilos-- 216 lbs

CW 92 kilos-- 202 lbs

I only weigh on Wednesday! (in australia-- aka Tuesday evening for u guys)

gw135

went to gym 8 times last week got sick did not go on weekend and still sick so have not been since.

I'm going to try to go to the gym today :)

I am not loosing too much still feel like I'm in a stall, any suggestions, I think I'm going to try a Faterday, I am sticking to 800 cal per day sometimes a little over or less, someone suggested my body may find itself in starvation mode so a Faterday would help???

I'd love to hear any suggestions

My Water intake M-F is about 64-96oz on weekends I must admit I slack off but still get in at least 48oz. Also I get in atleast 50-60g Protein daily as recommended by my surgeon.

I'd love to hear any suggestions

Wow! If you can lose 28 pounds in 8 weeks then you are already workin' it! I can lose 3.5 pounds in a week, but probably not sustain it through 8 weeks. How far out are you?
