I'm getting nowhere the last two weeks. I think it's been too many little slips here and there. Back on target today with the eating and exercise. I had hoped to be past 15 lbs by now, and instead I'm stuck at 10.

I did it with nutri system. To me it's a wonder diet. I'm never hungry!

I really only needed to lose 15 but wanted to give myself a 5 lb. leeway so I could eat like crazy when we go to Disney. We leave in 10 days and we'll be there for two weeks!

I'm dreaming of eating Mickey bars!
We're back - I ended up losing 19 lbs before we left and even after eating like crazy at Disney I only gained 2 1/2 lbs! I think all the Disney walking helped. I lost 1/2 lbs. since we've been back - 3 more to go!!!

Way to go, DisneyMomx7! I hope I can say the same after my trip lol

Weighed in today. I'm only down 1lb this week. That seems to be my pace *sigh*. But I did well this past week exercising and I've ordered P90x to start when we finish P90. Should be starting at the end of August and will finish up P90x by December. I'm 21lbs from my Dec goal.

Disappointed to say I gained back a lb. I can't believe what big losers so many of you are, and I mean that as a compliment! People posting loses of 15-20 lbs. in the length of time it took me to lose 7. I must be doing something wrong. Ah well, patience my dear. I want to lose 11 more lbs. at least. Wonder how long that will take?

I don't think you are doing anything wrong. If you are less than 20 lbs from an ideal weight then youre not going to lose as fast as someone who has significantly more to lose. Keep with it and you'll get there (at least that's what I'm trying to remember myself!)

I had posted that I hadn't lost anything in two weeks. Yesterday was my weigh in. This morning I got on the scale again and was down two pounds! I seem to weigh the least on Tuesday's or wednesdays, which is odd since dh doesnt work a traditional work week and I'm a sahm right now, so it's not like we do big weekend stuff. But either way as long as the weight comes off I don't care what day of the week the scale notices

So after 8 weeks I'm down 13 lbs. I really had hoped to be well over 15 by now, and I don't think I'll hit the 25 to 30 lbs lost before our trip (in 4 1/2 weeks) but if I keep going I can hit 20 which would be great!

Please share your thoughts on how shakeology works! My BF is thinking about trying it out when we start up p90x. I'm skeptical though (or maybe I don't want to give up a solid meal?)

checking in and getting caught up on the thread! you all are doing great! I am at 152.5, finally lost 1.5 pounds this week! I was stuck at 154 for a couple of weeks but kept going. it is motivating to see everyone's successes so keep doing what you are doing and we will prevail!

I started the 90 day challenge with Visalus and its going really good. the shakes are tasty!

If anyone uses myfitnesspal, look for me lmorse99. It really is a great tool to see what you are eating and keeping track of the calories. it really puts things in perspective.

I was at first too but my cousin is a Beachbody coach and has been on shakeology for awhile now and she loved it so I thought Id try it. I have been using it for about 6 days now. It took me a few days to find my right "recipe" but now I love it. Im doing the chocolate one right now. I love the taste. I use it with light chocolate almond milk, pb, and a scoop of shakeology and lots of blended ice! Its filling and only like 300 or so calories depending on what you put in it. And it makes a huge cup full!

I usually drink mine for lunch. That way I can have something substantial for brkfst like eggs, or egg mcmuffin (homemade not mikyd's) and then replace my lunch with the shake because in my mind I would normally eat more calories at lunch then brkfst.

I can answer any other questions if you'd like!

Yea. So proud of you for sticking to it until you lost that weight. Maybe now the next few pounds will come off easier.

I love the Visalus shakes. I was reading about pb2 today and think I may order some in the next week or so for my peanut butter shakes (I love the chocolate peanut butter ones). If I do, I'll let you know what I think.

I second that if anyone is on myfitnesspal, look us up. It is so nice to encourage each other on there throughout the day. I'm krsloane. And if you aren't on it and not keeping up with your calories, exercise, and water at all, I encourage you to check it out.

I'm finally down to my weight I was when I first started myfitness pal last fall (actually a pound lighter - woohoo) so my ticker will now start showing that loss! So excited.

I started the Body by Vi Visalus shakes on July 17 and weighed in at 192.?. When I weighed in yesterday, I was 183.9. 9 pounds lost in 4 weeks. I like the pace, and hope it continues for a while. If I can keep even close to this pace, I will hit 30 pounds before our trip in October. But I'm taking it 10 pounds at a time so I just want that last 1 pound off for now, and then I'll start working on the next 10.

I went swimming yesterday and to a Zumba class last night in which my body is paying for it today, haha. This has been my first time working out in about a week. I am down 1.5lbs and down another 1.5inch on my measurements. I can't believe that I have actually lost 32.5 inches off my body! I am getting close to my goal inches of about 7 more inches overall(hips, waist, chest). Now if I can just get that last 25lbs off! :0) I have also enjoyed catching up on everyone's posts over the last week! It continues to help me push harder! We can do it!!!
