Belle, you are so charming.

I'm a stay-the-samer this week. I have no idea why as I'm doing everything I'm suppose to do.

Good luck to everyone else!

I'm with Shelia. I am a stay-the-samer and I thought that I was doing everything right also. Although, I was sick last week and didn't feel like eating most of the time. I know that skipping meals is a big no-no, so maybe that is why I didn't lose. Better luck next week.

Congrats to all of you losers!

Well at least I am the only one. I am a stay the samer this week.

I have been very good with my diet and exercise. The only thing I can think is that I haven't been drinking all the water I am suppose to.

Well at least I didn't gain.

It looks like a trend here. I am a stay the samer as well. Only four weeks left to drop these last pesky eight pounds.

Well, I am going to bust up the stay the same party. I lost 3lbs. But this is after 2 weeks of stay-the-same no matter what I did and then one week of one pound loss. So I am averaging out to one pound a week loss.

Hang in there everyone, I have been there.

OK, I just started my diet a week ago - and I've lost 8 lbs.

I have a theory - because matter never completely goes away - for every pound I lose there must be someone gaining a pound somewhere else. So when we finally get on our cruises, our chowing down will be helping all the other dieters trying to take it off for their cruise.

OK, This is really weird I am also a Stay-The-Samer, like everyone else I was extra good. I started a new thing of doing a hour more of exercise every night, using non fat milk instead of creamer in my coffee (that is a big sacrifice) and keeping to less than 1000 calories per day and burning in exercise alone 800. I feel a lot thinner the pants are looser but that darn scale still says 144.2
I am flying back down to San Diego to see DH tomorrow and will be back home Sunday and hopefully he wil be home by next Saturday for good. Or at least till we leave on our cruise in 5 weeks eating this weekend could be a little bit of a set back but not that bad.

Know it's not fair you do everything right and you don't lose..Sorry.
Sure you'll ALL have a loss next week!

Now this week I don't feel good..I tried to watch it but ate some wrong things and I lose. Does that make sense? I'm Five lbs less then when I went on the cruise.

Now I will feel better and eat right..will I continue at my usual stay the samer? LOL

Sheila or Shelia (forget which way) Thank You.

Everyone have a good week..be carefull on the weekend.

Hello!

I am trying to get some weight off before my cruise in April.
I have lost a total of 16lbs since January 3, 2005, and 2lbs were this week! I was a stay the samer last week. WOOHOO for this week!!

We are going to be the best bunch of losers next week, I bet!!

Almost forgot to check in, I'm a stay the samer too! Good job to those that lost or stayed the same.

Can't believe I actually thought I could do the 11 pounds in 11 weeks! Still trying though.

Better luck next week to all of us!

Hi everyone!
This sounds like the kind of support group I need. Do you have a certain diet or anything you are all doing or just doing it on your own and supporting one another? Can anyone join??

Welcome, brcris75. We are all doing different weight-loss programs. I am on the South Beach diet, some are on Atkins or Weight Watchers. Whatever diet you choose, all are welcome on this board. We do our weigh ins on Thursdays. We have pledged to lose 11 lbs in 11 weeks. Belle is our biggest supporter/cheerleader. She roots us on and is the person who comes up with the ideas for our pledges. I can't remember when this current pledge ends, but I am sure that someone on this board will let you know. Good luck to you.
