OK here we are 1 month in and I don't think I have lost much at all :(

Current weight - 203 (didn't get to weigh myself this morning)
Goal - 160
short term goal - 198

So we are 4 weeke in and I haven't even put my work out dvd in once yet :o I really need to get my butt moving. We are going on vacation in September and I would really like to loose20 lbs by then! Summer has proven to be very tough for me with all of the BBQ's and birthday parties.

Wow we must have been typing at the same time :)

I'll just repeat my info here and delete the other post!

Thought I'd go ahead and post this in case something came up to prevent you from doing it, Jennifer!

Starting weight: 198.5
Current weight: 195.1
Goal weight: 150
Short term goal: 175
Height: 5'7"
Strategy: portion control focusing on more whole and fresh foods vs. processed, continue regular exercise but increase intensity.

Doing much better right now with portion control and making better food choices! Also the past two weeks I've been exercising more. Our YMCA has this system where we can log our workouts and it assigns points based on the amount of weight lifted and time spent doing aerobic activity. My husband (who works at the Y part time in the fitness area) set weekly points goals for me to meet, and it has really motivated me to keep it up!

Starting weight: 164 (doctor's office)/162 (home)
Current weight: 160 -2 lbs!!
Short Term Goal: 150
Goal: 135 lbs
Height: 5'6

I am happy and surprised by the weight loss. I only got to run once last week because we were sick (again), and I now have Shingles (again). Starting to feel cursed... Still trying to do something active every day, even a walk around the "block" with the dogs is better than nothing. Went to Yoga class on Monday and now can't go back until the @#$%%@# shingles are gone. DVDs at home for me...

Current weight: Yikes again can't believe I am even typing this but 243.5 so down another 2.5 lbs
Goal weight: 120
Short term goal: 200
Height: 5'9"
Strategy: strict laid out diet consisitng of 2 (one for breakfast one for lunch) slimfast shakes (actually using wal-marts brand as it tastes good and has fewer calories) and a weight watchers meal for dinner, with unlimited salad greens if I choose in between, a lil sugar free jello or popsicles. Although I am mostly sticking to just the 3 main meals

I can say I have found it very true about protein drinks in the morning helping or at least with me, I used to be so tired and sluggish but since starting this diet where I have one for breakfast and one for lunch I actually don't need naps and have energy it's a complete turn around! Good luck and keep us updated on if it works for you as well.
