I'd like to join in. I want to lose 40 lbs before my trip Nov. 9th. Today's my birthday, so I'm starting Tuesday, after everybody stops feeding me.

Happy Birthday!

Well, I survived day 1. I stuck to my 1200 calories, had no sweets, and walked 3 miles before it got too hot. I don't know about you guys, but it's the next few days where it will get rough while my body tries to adjust to the calorie restriction. I always hate the 1st two weeks of a diet! But the end results will be worth it. I hope that the rest of you who started today had successful days too.

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 !!

Go for it, the 30 day shred is a tough old work out but it definately gets results if you stick at it

I started atkins on Monday with my husband, of course I have lost 6 pounds in 5 days but he has lost 9. but good for him. I am hoping that atkins will jump start something thank you everyone I look forward to hearing your successes and positive thoughts and vibes to keep us all going.

so my positive thought for the week is
" Don't give up trying"
I would say 30 day shred is so much more effective than Zumba, my wife does both and 20 days of the 30 day shred produced better results then a few months of zumba. Weve got a pack of 4 dvd's from the 30 day shred series and unbelieveably 30 day shred is the easyiest.

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'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)

I'm an old-timer here on the DIS and haven't posted in many moons. Had a whim to check in tonight and stumbled upon this thread. I too need to lose about 20 lbs, and seem to be lacking any sort of willpower. I'll keep up with this challenge and see how everyone's progressing, including myself :-)

I'd like to join in too! I want to lose at least 30 pounds before our October trip.

I love the 30 day shred, but haven't done it in a while. I'm vowing to start tomorrow.

My first bit of effort was to only have water before bed instead of my usual ginger ale, which I'm totally addicted to :-) A small step but a start.
