What's up with that??? I'm afraid to set any kind of date I would like to do this, because I will just make sure it doesn't happen.

I think I'll try WW - it is a program that I can live with for life and it's very balanced. Of course in the past I have started losing, so I immediately go crazy and make sure I gain it all back.

Anyone have any suggestions out there? Does anyone else have this problem?

Perhaps I need a psychiatrist???
I lost 18 lbs through nutritional cleansing - a very healthy and easy way to lose weight. I saw the results almost immediately so it was easy to stay motivated. Best part is that I have kept the weight off for over 4 months. PM if you want more information.

Hiya guys and gals. Well my final payment for our B2B cruises is due one year from today. Lets see if I can get my current Pooh-sized body to a Tigger size body by then.

Yesterday I started participation in a study by Vanderbilt University Research Hospital on a new diet. There premise is that the American Heart Association diet is too restrictive and that people cannot stay on it for a long time. So they have re-introduced fats to the diet. It is actually pretty high in fat. It is 3 meals and 3 snacks each day.

I have been poked, prodded and scan to determined exactly what my body composition is, How elastic are my artieries, how many calories my body burns at resting, etc. I will be given supplements starting next week. I am very hopeful on this diet. Past participants have lost healthy amounts of weight and reported that it was easy to follow. We have to use real food, no diet, no low-fat. Only diet is drinks.

Today's menu

B'fast - 2 slices of bacon, one slice of whole wheat toast, 1 tsp of margarine, 1 cup of milk

snack 1 - atkins snack bar and 12oz of 0 calorie drink

Lunch - turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread with mayo, lettuce and tomato (YES MAYO) and a salad with 2 TBS of ranch dressing, 1 oz of pistachios - 12oz of 0 calorie drink

snack 2 - 1 oz of almonds and 12oz of 0 calorie drink

dinner - 3oz fish baked with 1 tsp of veggie oil, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 cup green beans, 1/3 cup baked beans. - 12 oz 0 calorie drink.

snack 3 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce


Wish me luck.

Good luck Robin! Sounds like everyone else is motivated as well. Should we pick a day of the week to all weigh-in and report?

I will be weighing on Mondays due to the program, so I will be a little behind you guys, but it will all even out in the end. (or hopefully disappear off my end)

As for keeping a list of everyones achievement, it is usually the person with the first post who keeps it up. they will usually just edit that post each week with the new weight losses.

If that person doesn't want to do it. We can start a new thread with the person who does want to keep track of it and I will cause it to stick at the top.

My suggestion is to put down the date we started and how much we have lost. Do you guys have any suggestions.

My start date is 1/4/2010 - weight lost so far ??

I started WW on 12/16 and have lost 10 lbs! I've also been excersing daily since 12/25 (I received Wii Fit Plus for Christmas). I am cruising Feb 2011 so I have some time to lose the weight. I weigh in next Wednesday so hopefully I'll be down another pound or so.

Ok, I saw this thread and I am "On Board". I think this is a WONDERful idea. A way to get support and see what is working and not working for everyone. What more of a MAGICal way to get support. I have my DREAM weight, but for now, I will just hop on the scale and keep you posted. I will follow the American ADA diet and let's see where it gets me. Very similar to lmhall's approach. So let me get started...
