Hi Margie,

Thanks for posting on my Cheerboard. We both are trying to get down to our 125 lb. goal. It does seem to be taking forever. I wish you well with the 6 month Transformer Game. I know that you can do it!

Congrats Margie on your recent weight loss!! You're rockin it! Whoo HOOO!

Just to let you know, I'm hosting a new diet bet, "Fatty No More," which begins after Labor Day on Friday, Sept. 6. The bet is only $20. The weigh in dates are Sept. 4,5 and 6. The game ends on Friday, Oct. 4.

The last diet bet I hosted, 90% ended up making their weight loss goal. We have a motivated group of passionate "losers" who are already having a great time sharing and connecting. Would love to have you join us. Check it out!

Yay! Girl... I see we are both loosing weight this month. I was shocked when I got on the scales this morning. I've already lost over 3 pounds. 6.2 more to go. We can both do it this month!

Margie D.

It feels good, Now to just keep it up. Last time I was at my goal weight 3 days before the weigh in and won on another bet and then when it was time to weigh in for the last one, I had gained 3 pounds... :( This time I am going to lose about 3 pounds more than I need to in case that happens again. You can see on my chart that I go up and down. Gotta make sure it is down on weigh in

Sorry I had to laugh. You have lost 9.8 lbs in 2 months. I have to loose 9.7 pounds this month! But then again I am way larger than you are.

Margie D.

And don't forget that I had already lost like 15 pounds when I started these games. When I first started Atkins, I lost 10 pounds in the first two weeks. Sadly, that quick loss is over and am now at a snails pace, but that is fine as long as the scale goes down.
