    I'm doing horribly. It's been hard for me to recover after Easter. I looked at my weight and sure enough, I've gained 4 lbs. :-( No bueno. So, I'm going to try South Beach Phase 1 again to lose some of that weight.

    How is everyone doing so far this week?? I am still missing starting weights from some of you... Please have them to me as soon as possible, and don't forget weigh in on Monday (or if you weigh in a different day of the week give me the most recent weight every week before a Monday... not a big deal just make it a consistent day so your weigh-ins are consistent. )

    There are a few of you who didn't give me your goal weight for May 31st as well... if you do not give me one I will assume it is to lose 5lbs, and that is what your stats will keep track of.

    How is everyone doing in the mini challenges? Are you getting in 10 pushups? whether they be wall, modified, chair, one-handed...
    How about eating your minimum of 3-5 servings of fruits and veggies... keep in mind this is the recommended min serving for adults a day... for health! Good luck everyone!!

    Sorry! my start weight is 140lbs and my goal weight is 135lbs.
    I am pushing out about 7 push ups then my arms turn to jelly...will keep going im determined to hit 10 :)
    I will be on time next week:smile:

    Not a big deal Dannibella! Thanks for getting it to me... The fact you are attempting the pushups is all that the challenge is... in time if you keep it up, you will be able to do 10. Most of us women lack the upper body strength, that is why even just standing and doing wall pushups is good as it will help you build up arm strength without having to support your whole body weight.
    Enjoy your Mother's Day yourself, or with yours, or someone who is almost like a mother to you!

    Having a hard time with the late night eating. I eat dinner early with my girls and then am hungry around 9pm....Need to grab healthy options instead of the unhealthy. Fruit and Vegetables the past week were easy to incorporate into my diet. The pushups were not. Going to attempt again this week.

    I had a very successful week, despite not meeting all week challenges. I did great with healthy eating and 3-5 veggies a day. I started out strong doing a set of modified push ups every day for the first 3 days, then stopped.:blushing:
    I had a personal challenge of getting to bed by 10PM to get more sleep. Well, I was able to get to sleep by 11PM each night, which is a HUGE improvement over what I've been doing for the past couple of months. This week I AM going to do the 10 push ups EVERY day, get to bed by 10PM, and do a better job of completing my food diary.

    05/16: (130) ---down 10 pounds from my starting weight in early April

    I am so dissapointed with myself. I had dropped down to 134 because I worked so hard over the week. However, all of that hardwork went out the window on Friday and I was a slacker all weekend so I gain it all back plus some. I guess time to work extra hard! I don't see myself hitting my one month goal after this weekend :(
    I would say that I completed 5 out of 7 weekly challenges for this group. I will try to do better this coming week!

    Hi everyone,

    Well, I did okay on the challenges - 3-5 veggies/fruit and the push ups were just wall push ups
    I did keep up my food diary, except for Sat and Sunday.
    I enjoyed my mothers day weekend a little too much. But next week will be better!!

    Well, seeing that I didn't exercise all week, I'm pretty happy with that. Frustrated a bit though as I saw 133 on the scale yesterday, and somehow I'm back up to 134 today?? I'm been really good about getting my water in, but haven't done so well on the fruits/veggies, and obviously tanked the exercise part.
