New here - hoping to put my weight loss in a more public forum so I am more motivated! :)


Me: Carrie, marrried (6 yrs), son (2yrs), 2 dogs(though one is totally my hubby's)


My Stats: current weight 147, first goal - 135 (pre-pregnancy weight), second goal - 120 (pre-wedding weight)


I decided that on my 30th birthday I wasn't having it anymore and I was going to get serious!

Look like great goals to me! I have a problem getting my water in too so I totally understand.


How tall are you?


Eggs are good protein I believe - I think you just shouldn't eat as many yolks (someone correct me if I'm wrong) - but I think the whites are where the good stuff is!

Hey Carrie, great goals!


I'm curious to know how tall you are too - since my goal weight is close to yours!


So as for eggs, yes they're a great source of protein. But they are high in cholesterol (found in the yolk). A general recommendation is that you take in no more than 300 mg of cholesterol a day, and one egg has 213. NOW that being said, what I would do is this - either eat only one egg boiled, or you can scramble them, but toss one of the yolks.

That's funny about trying to bribe the lady to give you that extra 1/2 inch! lol


I'm 5' 5" and my goal is 129... it's funny how differently bodies are proportioned!

Well I'm 5'0" and my final goal is 120. I have a fairly muscular build and will never be svelte, I know that, but 120 I would happy with. Heck 130 I'd be happy with, at 120 I'd be ecstatic! :-)

The sad thing is that when I was in college I weighed about 110 - and I thought I was FAT!

The sauna sounds divine!


Have you ever tried the Hebrew National Fat Free hotdogs? They're not bad at all and only have about 70 calories. I might have to take my pack out of the freezer this weekend and have some now that you mention it! lol
