    Thank you so much for starting this up SA89, I loved loosing with you guys last month and I know it'll help this month too.

    I'm going for 7lbs this time. It might be a bit much to manage but it's worth a try. I'm starting Zumba classes next week so hopefully that'll help shift the pounds.

    Good luck everyone :D

    I am calorie counting, and going to the gym 3 times a week. What about you?
    I weigh in on mondays too. Weekends are the hardest for me to stay focused on my diet. So many distractions, and less of a routine. This weekend I have friends coming in from out of town, so I am really going to have to work at sticking to healthy foods and small portions and thats going to be a big challenge. But I have done so well all week, and I know there has been a weight loss (yes, I check the scales daily) and I don't want to mess that up over the next 2-3 days. During the week, with work and everything else (I have 2 kids), its so busy, its easier to stick to the routine (as long as I am prepared ahead of time).
    Sorry, you asked a simple question and I started to ramble on...
    Thanks for letting me join this group. I am excited!

    Hi kes and riley! Glad to have you guys with us!

    Riley- just keep your goal in mind, and picture what you want to look like when you are faced with temptation. It almost always helps me stay on track :)

    Lalalou - That's a great way to start this challenge - positive thinking! We all WILL succeed :)

    Thanks. Well I made it through Friday evening-- made and served dinner to friends, and somehow managed not to eat the bread or ice cream, so feeling pretty good right now (just salad and low fat home made chicken soup). Just need to get through the next 2 days the same way.
    Thanks for all the advice and good wishes.

    Well, I've weighed myself this morning too, I'd forgotten about this challenge, but just fancied going on the scales, so I can now weigh on a monday too for this challenge!

    Going to make a spreadsheet (saddo!) so that I remember my loss from Monday to Monday, because I normally weigh on a Friday and I'll forget otherwise! Gives me an actual excuse to weigh twice-weekly :D
