I hear the scale...The numbers are waiting to roll and stop
To make you happy when you see the numbers drop

That's mine/your wishes to start the day
Want the numbers down we say

We hope for the best each time we weigh
Whatever diet you use we do it our way

We all want the same results every week after week
Whatever numbers we see we never give up what we seek

Eating right and exercising is our goal each day and night
Try to remember it will make us healthier and slimmer that's right

Good morning Belle!

I'm down 1.4lbs this week. Which surprised me since I haven't ate the greatest the last few days. So far my July total is 9lbs lost.

Good Morning,

Missy and Red, wow, you two have done so well.

Me, I have to rain on the parade. I gained 1 lb. Oh, not good as I cruise in about 5 weeks.

Wish everyone good losses for next week (hopefully me included!).

Good Afternoon everyone.

Missy.. Nice loss. You have a great loss for the month.
Don't let a few days get you down.

Red.. Your doing such a good job. Great total in weight loss
since you started.

Diana.. You'll get the pound off plus more in five weeks
I know. Will be less for cruise.

cmon.. Great loss since July 10th. Congrats on new number
on the scale.

Mike.. This is just one week. Your so close to goal. You'll
get the gain off fast.

Marine.. Good loss for the week and to be under your goal
for cruise. Congrats! Bon Voyage!

I was down about a half pound. Know not getting enough exercise.
Should be easy during summer time. Use to be but life has
changed to much and I'm not adjusting as I should. But won't
Give Up!

We're missing some people.. Where Are You?

Everyone have a good weekend.

Hey Croozengal! Welcome and congrats on the impressive progress! I had two excellent months and then July happened and I've hit a dreaded plateau. Looks like we're sailing about a month after you so I think we've both got plenty of time. Belle makes us a new thread each week which makes for a nice little accountability tool.

Thanks! I've been tracking my food using the Lose It app and keeping around 1200-1300 calories. Trying to keep a ratio of 50% cals from protein, 30% carbs, and 20% fat. I'm also not drinking alcohol (dang it!!) and drinking a crazy amount of water (about a 1/2 ounce for each lb of weight). My carbs are mainly from fruit, trying to stay away from processed carbs/bread. It's working for me!

Sounds like a good and sensible plan. Drink the water now save the alcohol for your cruise... It will be worth it...
