Thanks! I have actually lost more but before I found DB.

COHikerGirl

Very cool, by any measure and by any means. :)

WOW, Christine! You're already at 100% for this round in the Jan-July DietBet. I'm impressed!! I'll get down there, but it'll take me a while, yet. You go, girl!

Oooo, ooo, ooo, the leaderboard still shows you at 100% so I'm assuming you made your goal weight for the Round, Christine! Yay!!! Good going!

Christine E.

I hope so----doing my official weigh-in tomorrow morning. It's been a rough few weeks lifewise, but I think I maintained.

COHikerGirl

Cool. It's hard keeping it up, sometimes, but it's gratifying when you still make your numbers despite everything.

Yeah, well, you're still at 100% for this Round! Just hang on by your fingernails! ;D (That's what I'm gonna do ... I joined a second DietBet10 to keep me working toward a new goal, so it's still a challenge ...)

Okay, Christine, now we're BOTH signed up for the two Transformer DietBet10 games. Just weighed in for the second one, today. Good look on your progress. :)

Haha---I was just writing on your profile before I saw this. I am actually in 3 games---I think I should hit my goal weight well before 6 months, but I want to make sure I don't get too cocky because I really want to keep it off once and for all! Good luck to you too!

COHikerGirl

EXACTLY! I've already got that first 10% off, so I figured now I need some extra motivation to go after the second 10%.

Christine, the DietBet display makes it look as if you've reached 100% on your goal for this round! Congratulations, if so! :D

OK!!! It's AFTER CHRISTMAS!!! We can now FOCUS ON OURSELVES AND DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO (dammit). Yep, I'm re-committing and re-focusing and returning to healthy ways after indulging a little too much for Christmas. It's time to turn that page ... HELP ME DO IT. I need a little encouragement, today ...

Christine E.

You can do this! Nothing tastes as good as being fit and healthy feels!

COHikerGirl

My mantra, too! Thanks for the reminder ... I needed that. :) Now to get off my butt and go work out SERIOUSLY.

DIETING TECHNICAL TIP: Don't forget that *as you lose weight, the amount you should be eating each day DIMINISHES." If you are using MyFitnessPal or a similar tool, RECALCULATE YOUR CALORIC INTAKE GOAL from time to time -- at least every 10 pounds or so. This can be CRITICAL as an element of 'plateauing.'I just re-calculated mine, and the new goal number was almost 100 calories less per day!

I don't actually count calories anymore as the numbers are not reliable. I eat whole foods plant-base---no processed foods and no added oils. I know when I'm at a plateau it's time to start upping the greens again!

COHikerGirl

That's a FINE strategy! Very cool! You'd fit right in with my yoga class friends. Though I do indeed track the calories as a good rough guide (I don't expect exactitude), like you I avoid the processed foods, and stay with organic fare. It really DOES make a big difference in how you feel, doesn't it?
