Smile 30 pounds by Oct, who's with me??

Hey diser's! October 2012 vacation planned and of course I want to be 30 pounds lighter. Started my plan on Monday and as motivated as I am..... dieting is not easy. I am doing atkins and as a nurse I know its not the best choice but I need results to keep my motivation. I plan to do only the 2-3 week induction and then slowly add my carbs without the sugar. I have been working out 4-5 days a week committed since March/2012. exercise without dieting, I lost 5pounds. Since monday I have "lost" 6 pounds. I know its probably more water weight but its exactly what I need to keep me focused on my goal.

sorry for the story, but as with anything successful, we all need some supporters and those who are in the same boat that can experience the same battle. so who is with me? I have 3 months 3 weeks before we leave and I think.... No, I know I will find the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow.. Besides, we have FREE DINING!!!!! LOL

I feel like I do this to myself every year. We go on the DCL and rebook and I say that I don't want to be in the same place I was... and I always am. We leave the Friday before Thanksgiving and I would love to be lighter... 30lbs would be wonderful and I think very accomplishable. I'm with ya! Support is so important and I'd be happy to be there for you.

It can be done and once you start losing the weight the better you feel. Just don't stop working out, it helps keep you losing weight even if you have a bad day dieting.

My wife is currently on a get fit and lose weight drive, she has been doing a dvd called 30 day shred and plans to move onto a 6 weeks ab's workout once she has finished that

She is currently on day 22 of the 30 day shred and if doing fantasticly, it's a hard work out but it really seems to get results. It's one of Jillian Michaels work outs dvd's, i think she's one of the excercise people on the biggest looser.

She is aiming to go from a size 14 to a size 10 by the start of november

I'm in! I just dropped 20lbs in the last 2 weeks.... albee it I gave birth! So I guess that doesn't really count!

My goal is to be down the other 30 by the end of Oct so I am TOTALLY with you. I'm doing Weight Watchers which seems to be working .... at least for the past 3 days that I have been doing it. I'm nursing so I get quite a few points... but I still am struggling with the "need" for chocolate.

I have been following the Eat To Live program from Dr. Fuhrman, I started on Wednesday and as of this morning I have lost 7 pounds. I have a lot to lose so I am going to break it up into 10 pound goals. Tomorrow we are going shopping and I know my hubby will want to go to a restaurant, so I MUST BE STRONG !!

I'm a nurse too, that's going in Oct and has been doing low carb for 3 months now! I use to suffer from hypoglycemia and since starting, not one attack, also, I use to get about 4 headaches a week, now only 1 or less, plus I have much more energy and I feel full all of the time! I haven't started a regular exercise program yet, but have been swimming a few times a week. I am joined to a gym and plan to get back into it soon! So far, I have been measuring myself weekly and have dropped 26inches overall in 12 weeks and about 21 pounds. My goal is another 20 by vacation time! It encouraging to see others with the same goal. I want to be able to have a few yummy treats on vacation without feeling guilty, especially a dole whip or cupcake!!!:0)

Thanks, but I have studied the pros and cons of the low carb diet, and the pros out weigh the cons by 100:1. If you look at the causes of fatty liver, it could be due to, tons of different kinds medicines, alcohol, other underlying disorders and diseases including diabetes and also obesity, which can be a very big factor in fatty liver. Too much iron can also be an adding factor, but, you can keep a low carb diet 30-100grams of carbs/day, include lots of fruits and veggies, some natural fats and oils( coconut oil, olive oil) and some proteins without over killing the Iron aspect. I look at it this way, I could keep my carbs low, eat a great balance of proteins, vitamins and fiber and a few carbs from natural foods such as fruits, veggies etc. lose weight and also feel better (in which i have now lost 30 pounds and 35inches over less than five months) and risk a very, very small chance of getting fatty liver, or continue the way I was going with being obese, symptoms of diabetes which both play a good factor in fatty liver, suffer from tons of other ailments, work my butt off at the gym and hardly lose a couple of pounds. Since the Food Pyramid was introduced, there has been a drastic rise in heart conditions, diabetes, obesity, fatty liver,and many more diseases. Our body needs fat to function properly. Correlation does not imply causation.

Today is day 90 of Power90. I haven't lost any weight in 2 weeks But overall, in the past 90 days of this exercise routine/calorie reduction, I lost 18lbs.

Tomorrow starts P90x. Those 90 days will finish about a week before our December trip. I hope to lose another 18lbs in the next 90 days!

I'm slightly disappointed that I didn't lose more weight, since the last time I really dieted I was losing 2lb/week average. However, my clothes fit a lot better (and some are ready to be donated because they are too big!) I also didn't exercise EVERY day that I was suppose to and I had more than a few cheat meals. So...you get what you put in, Moli. Lesson learned. Bring it!

Hi everyone. Joining in. Started on Medifast yesterday. I want to lose about 20 pounds. My two friends have been doing this for about 6 weeks and one has lost 20 pounds and another 15 pounds. And one friends Mom lost 50 pounds in 3 months. So, thought I would give it a try. You do have to buy their food (doing the online program) and eat their meals/snacks 5 times a day and then 1 Lean/Green meal a day. Been on weight watchers before and did lose but very slowly and it was frustrating. So, hoping I can see some progress right away and that will give me incentive to keep going. Just keep telling myself that this is only for a short time - then go on maintenance and just watch what I eat (not chicken nachos and fast food all the time). Also, just seeing the difference in my friend is huge and we can all help each other out (we live next door to each other). She weighs in everyday but thinking I will wait until my first week is done to weigh in...
