I’m in…I’ve got a deal with Darling Husband that I get to buy the JCrew dress I posted the other day if I can fit into it. I comes in a 0-10, so I’ve got some work to do.

Check out this thread for support:

Shape up with me? I could use the support!

We used to have Wednesday check-in but the motivation flagged around week 5.  I think it was difficult to get everyone checking in on a regular basis because we kept slipping on and off the wagon.

Good luck!

I’m in as well. I already do Weight Watchers online and my regular checkin day is wednesday, so it works out great…

Sounds good to me! I’ve  been doing really good since I moved out to California. Here are a few of my weight loss tips (I am loosely following weight watchers also);

  • No eating after 7 PM (Surprised I have been able to do this!) unless out to a later dinner.
  • I keep a food journal, this has been really helpful in enlightening me on my eating habits.
  • When I’m done in the kitchen, I turn off the light and don’t spend time there if its not cooking or eating.
  • I try to eat salad once a day, even if its a side to a piece of pizza or a burger.
  • I also try to eat at the same time (breakfast around 8, light lunch around 1, dinner between 5 and 6 – usually with a snack between lunch and dinner)
  • I try to either walk outside and take a different trail — I think the fresh air and Vitamin D has made me feel healthier — or do 30-Day Shred
  • On the note of 30-Day Shred, I pretend to punch Jillian Michaels in the face as I do my punches
  • Furthermore, if I am working out (not 30-Day Shred) and I get frustrated (as I did on my hike with Fiance today) I yell out "I HATE YOU JILLIAN" instead of "I CAN’T DO THIS!" its very motivating! lol

Does anyone else have tips they find helping that I can integrate in for the month of June? I’ll definitely be back Wednesday for a "Weigh-in"

I’m in. I was doing really well, eating smaller portions and walking. Then came Memorial Day and I fell off the wagon big time. I’m ready to get motivated again.

I think one important key in staying motivated is when you pig out (ala Memorial Day or a random Friday night), get back on track with the very next meal — not the next day. Slips up are healthy but if you let that distract you from your plan, that’s when it goes downhill!

I’m so in. 

My Fiance and I went for a walk today for about 50 minutes.

Yay…that’s a start.

I’m going to try the 30 day shed and not eating after 7pm.
