What do u all think of a little friendly competition? I was thinking of breaking us up into groups with team captains. Each group member wilk pm their captain their weight on fridays and the captains will report to me. Since there arent an even number of people and more keep adding, we can take an average for rach group and see which group lost the most.
What do you all think? We're up to 20+ people now
I am game. I am easy that way.

I like it...I don't want to be a captain though.

Re: The 25lb Challenge September thread

So far today I ate pretty well, except for the starbucks green tea latte and coffee with sugar (yes I had both today)
Calorie wise I had too much. I should be tracking food and counting calories but I find it a royal pain in the butt. I had no rice or bread or other grains today. I'm doing ok on the carbs thing, I just really need to cut back on the amount of stuff I eat

Ugh, I cannot count calories. I am just working on eating healthier and cutting out extra treats right now. So far it's going pretty good. I just have a bad habit of pigging out once DS is asleep.

Do it for one day. I did that and it gave me a pretty good idea of what I was eating and what I should cut back on. I have not worked out yet but things have been kind of hectic at home. I have been eating really well. I had a coke zero for my cravin of regular coke the other day but Other than that I haven't had soda for a week. Every morning I eat the f-age Greek yogurt with the fruit and I think they are only 140 cal with 12 grams of sugar or something like that. I have been adding a little of granola cause I like the crunch. Oh and all I have been drinking since I tracked my food, is water and a small glass of milk. I had juice and even though I diluted it, an 8 oz serving of undiluted juice is 160 calories! So I've been staying away from my grape juice. I have to say this is the longest I've stuck to anything and now I'm not as hungry as I was before. Every time I feel hungry I drink a big glass of water and I also drink a big glass with meals.

Oi if I wrote anymore it would have been a novel

Re: The 25lb Challenge September thread

I don't count calories either, drives me nuts! 95% of the time I eat whole foods, no grains. It's fairly close to a paleo diet. I eat as many veggies/meat as I want, with a fruit or two a day. Limited dairy. Lots of eggs, nuts to snack on. Because I'm eating so healthy I don't worry about counting any calories, I just eat whenever I'm hungry and so far it's working good for me. I'm at 10 lbs down total after a month, but I've had a few oops days in there in the beginning. Now that I'm more used to eating this way, if I do eat something unhealthy I feel ter-ri-ble after!
