    Goal - 30 lbs
    Start date - 2/22/11
    Goal Date - 1/1/2012
    Pounds lost this week -1.4
    Left to go - 19.8
    Total lost since 2/22/11 - 10.2 lbs

    Wow, congrats on the 4, Jneen!  That's pretty impressive, I've never managed that much in one week.
    I am relieved to see the scale moving in the right direction, at least, but I'm probably going to have to adjust the goal date.

    luna, when your butt is as big as mine, losing 4lbs is like losing 4 deck chairs off the Titanic :)

    UPDATE!
    Goal - 50 lbs
    start date: 6/30/11
    Goal date: January (50 by 50)
    loss this week: 1
    loss to-date: 13.6
    to go: 36.4

    Not too bad this week.

    Hey anyone out there using chia seeds (yes, like the chia pet) to help with cholesterol?  My physical therapist (who is a self proclaimed granola bar) was talking about this the other day.  While my cholesterol isn't bad, I'd like it to be GREAT.

    LOL!
    Jneen, I'll bet I have you beat . . . my screen name means "full moon," and it's not because of anything astrological!!!
    Laughing

    JTB, somebody recently told me to try 1 tablespoon of organic, non-pasteurized cider vinegar in water twice a day for cholesterol.  I'm on week 3, so it will be interesting to see if it helps.

    A day late and a dollah short:

    Goal: -20 from starting date
    Starting date: 06/30/2011
    Goal date: -20 by 11/24/2011
    Pounds lost this week: -1
    Total lost: -10
    Left to go: 10
    Total lost since August 2010: 20

    The stress is still working for me in terms of losing weight (although it's not doing much for my ability to sleep!!).  Still didn't make it back to the gym, but looking forward to dancing tonight, and kayaking and riding my bike over this coming last-blast-of-summer weekend!! Hope you all have a great weekend too!!!

    Here is my week 6 update:

    Goal: -20 from starting date
    Starting date: 08/27/2011
    Goal date: 10 by Thanksgiving - then just hang on through the holidays
    Pounds lost this week: 0
    Total lost: 5.3
    Left to go: 14.7
    Total lost since August 2011: 5.3

    Not a good week results wise but I guess it's not a surprise after last weeks -1.7. I'll take a zero over a gain. I'm hoping for a better week this week with a stepped up exercise routine since my injury is totally healed. I still have a shot at making my short term goal of -10 by Thanksgiving.

    Good Luck everyone else!

    I'm not doing well at all in terms of losing but I sure am doing well at not gaining. I think Jneen gave me credit for my weekly loss last week, not my overall loss. But thanks for the encouragement anyway.

    ***UPDATE TIME!!!***

    Hi Kids!

    Sorry about that.

    Anyhow, it was a fantastic week in Loserville - population YOU!  I'm so very proud of all of you :)

    Our Dancing Banana this week goes to none other than luna-llena, who came roaring back with a -1.4 this week.  Way to go, chickadee!

    Get on the floor! 





    Our Banana o' Determination this week goes to the awesome LMB, who even though she has been unable to update in the thread this week provided me with an update via email.  She has honed in on her caloric intake and is ramping up the activity, which are both showing positive results for her.  Go, LMB Go!  We hope you will be able to pop your head in here soon and give us some encouragement!  We need you!

    W00pW00p! 


    Other successful losers this week are JTB and Wickey, each with a -1, and GMV with a -0.2.  Hooray!

    Calico and your pal Jneen are hanging steady after goodly sized losses last week.  Hell yes, just what I was looking for :)

    We have no Treadmillers this week.  None!  That's two weeks in a row!  The Treadmill of Shame is getting dusty.  Just the way we like it.

    My official numbers as follows:

    Goal: -50 from starting date
    Starting date: 08/05/2010
    Goal date: really just want to be healthy
    Pounds lost this week: 0
    Total lost: 15
    Left to go: 35
    Total lost since August 2007: 65

    Some of you have abandoned us.  We miss you.  This is the time of year that it is important to be accountable to yourself on a weekly basis.  You might hold steady or even gain a little until spring time, but that's a heck of a lot better than just saying "screw it" and giving up.

    Do one nice thing for yourself every day.

    Go get 'em, kids!

    WAY.TO.GO.!

    If we keep this up, we're going to have to do a clothes swap/shop! I know my clothes are starting to feel better (read looser)

    come back to the fold those of you who have left us!! It's fun here in 'Loserville'!!

    Goal - 30 lbs

    Pounds lost this week -.8
    Left to go - 19
    Total lost since 2/22/11 - 11 lbs

    Less than a pound isn't exactly dancing-banana-worthy, but I'll take it.  After a weekend with Indian food, leftovers, birthday cake, more leftovers . . . I'm surprised to have lost anything at all.

    recipe timez!!!!

    from a friend on my baseball board who is wicked awesome:

    Tuscan Pumpkin-White Bean Soup

    Ingredients

    1 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray, or enough to coat pot
    1 medium onion(s), coarsely chopped
    15 oz canned pumpkin
    3-1/2 cup(s) fat-free chicken broth
    15-1/2 oz canned white beans, rinsed and drained
    1/4 tsp ground oregano
    1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
    1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
    6 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

    Instructions

    Coat a large soup pot with cooking spray and set over medium-low heat. Add
    onion, cover and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes.

    Stir in pumpkin, broth, beans and oregano; simmer 8 minutes.

    In a blender, process soup in batches until smooth. (Note: Make sure not to overfill
    blender in order to avoid splattering.) Return soup to pot and reheat; season with
    salt and pepper.

    To serve, ladle soup into bowls and top each with 1 tablespoon of grated cheese.

    Yields about 1 cup per serving.

    I am going to post this, then I'm going to hide, as I have unpacked my scale and things are not good.

    Goal: To go below 330 so I can use my Wii Fit.
    Original Weight: 368
    Starting date: 03/15/2011
    Goal date: None
    Pounds lost this week: 0
    Total lost: 20.00
    Left to go: 10.00

    The lowest I have gotten was 332...now I'm at 348.

    I'm still fighting through adjusting to the move (which would have been faster if certain people repaid debts so I could start cooking in bulk/had the ability to reheat).

    I lose weight when I'm not around food!!  ONE, and pretty much the only one, benefit to being out of work (oh, and not having to get up at 5 AM, which is also huge!!).

    Oh well, this is what red meat & hard liquor two nights in a row will do to you!

    Back to the fish & veggies for me!

    Nice job McCool - I gained weight when unemployed - that whole making dinner every night - glad you are able to see the sunlight!

    Here is my week 7 update:

    Goal: -20 from starting date
    Starting date: 08/27/2011
    Goal date: 10 by Thanksgiving - then just hang on through the holidays
    Pounds lost this week: -.3
    Total lost: 5.6
    Left to go: 14.4
    Total lost since August 2011: 5.6

    Not a good week after last weeks zero loss. Unfortunately I have another injury so my exercise is limited to walking. But at least it's a loss and not a gain.

    Good luck to everyone else.

    Pumpkin pie for dinner? Well pumpkin IS a vegetable.

    Wonder if this will work with apple pie too?
