Let’s Get Ready To Rumble!

Some of you haven’t posted your starting weights. Get to it!

I’m still not close to 100%,stupid cold. I pounded down way too much fruit today but my calories were still at about 1600. I’ll probably hit the fruit basket tomorrow to help me stay away from the donuts. Atkins will start on Saturday. Good bye carbs until October 1.

Tip 1

Toss all of the bad food, NOW! That means you too Fitby40. Those with families have a tougher time but the family will understand. Toss all of the junk food. All of it. Mr. B can take the kids for a treat when he is in town and the in-laws can take the kids for weekend treats. You need to remove ALL temptation from the house. I will wait…. go…..toss it now…..

Tip 2

Mistakes happen. Don’t beat yourself up over them but don’t use them as an excuse to make even more mistakes.

Tip 3

Be realistic with your goals. Small obtainable goals are better in the long run. You can keep moving the bar higher but don’t just start out on day 1 saying I want to run a marathon in 2 months. :P

Set attainable goals so you can celebrate like that announcer and build up a good head of steam!

Tip 4

Don’t watch food shows! Stay away from the food network! Even healthy shows will make you hungry. Don’t watch any cooking shows anywhere. That is torture and temptation all wrapped up in a diet killing bundle.

Music! Listen to your favorite songs often to keep your spirits up.

That song always puts a smile on my face. :D

Tomorrow we dance! Make sure those weights are posted!

Happy Dieting, good luck

  1. I’ll bite!!! Skinnycat 64 at 165 pounds!

    • Welcome aboard. I’ll update the list with your name tomorrow. Good luck! :D

      • Great! Thanks for leading the motivational charge! Good luck to you too!

      • I’ve got this competition won! :D
        :P

        I need a good competition because I’ve done some serious backsliding in a very short time. :(

        Good luck!

  2. good thing i don’t want to run a marathon in 2 months. 3 months it is!

    • You know what I meant. Don’t set goals that put too much pressure on you. A little pressure is fine but for people who need to lose a large amount of weight they needs to take it slow and steady. They need to get that initial confidence boost from reaching attainable goals.

  3. A Food Addict weighing in….as of this morning I am: 197.2

    Looking forward to the competition! :)

  4. I posted 181.8 on Monday Tuesday. Didn’t weigh in today. Good enough?
