So...the race is on for August 2013... 50lbs to lose....i'm gonna do it...

There, i've said it on a public forum...there's no going back now ;-)

Wish me luck

Good luck, I think I have around the same xx

Demo welcome aboard! Sounds like we are in the same boat, same travel month and roughly the same amount of weight to lose!

Thanks. So, we got kellea04, magic megadegs and myself, 50lbs in 32 weeks.

With a bit (lot) of dedication that's possible....

If you do it, i'll buy you both a cinammon roll in Magic Kingdom (hopefully still at the Bakery once it becomes a Starbucks......

1 week today let's post updates ;-)

I've not been here for a while, as rather than losing weight- I've been gaining!

not really the food as such being an issue,maybe slightly too many carbs, but predominantly the silly meds I'm on.

I'm currently weaning myself off one lot (under hospital supervision),next appointment in 7 weeks time,so I would dearly love to at least lose a few pounds by then (20 in total to delete).

I shall return here also,in one weeks time with you guys,and hopefully we'll all have good news.

Good luck! My diet is pretty simple:

Breakfast: Granola and strawb yoghurt or porridge
Lunch: Salad items with chicken, tuna or salmon
Dinner: anything I want as long as it's nutritious and not from the takeaway ;-)
Snacks: Mucho fruit....

As long as I stick to a variation of that the weight generally falls away from me. My biggest weight gain problem is chocolate and takeaways. I tend to just completely cut all that junk out and I head the right way.

If I lose 50% of what I need (25lbs) i'll then hit the gym for the remaining 50%.

Here's hoping....

Not posted in here for a while because we've not been home for the past week, I think I'm afraid to weigh myself after everything I've eaten over Christmas Taking 2 more days off then starting New Year's Day it's all systems go, no more junk food and lots more exercise.

OK, here we go after 1st week:

Total To Lose by August 7th: 51.6
Lost This Week: 6.1
lbs remaining: 45.6

31 weeks to go!

avg lbs to lose per week: 1.5

Now, I expect that to slow down considerably next week (I hope so anyway!) and I expect that's from the excesses of Christmas as I started this on Boxing Day. But i'm now up and running which is the main part...

Good luck everyone as I know most of you will be starting this today. I think posting on a public forum will really give me a good push to get this done.
