    Has anyone here ever heard or read the book Dr. Abravanel's Body Type Diet and Lifetime Nutrition Plan?

    I'm in also, and I adore chocolate - I've actually planned out days where I save up Weight watcher points to include chocolate. :-D

    I'm in again, can't quit now I still have a long way to go!May didn't go as well as it should have, too many birthdays and dinners, and letting myself slack off!....oh and WAY too many conversations with myself about wanting to eat stuff I don't need! But my goal for June is to get back on track and quit looking for an excuse to slack off! and this month I am going to seriously add some kind of real exercise. I hate it but I know that is the next step that I have to do. I should of done it from the start but didn't so that is my main focus starting this month.

    Glad to see all of the new people joining. This is a good place for encouragement!:)

    Oh I almost forgot, Sandy and I had a conversation about how much I HATE having my picture taken and avoid it at all costs. Well after a baby shower for my niece we were taking pictures of our four girls together and some dumb person in the crowd....oh ya it was my MIL! LOL, dcided to take pictures of each family. Grrrr.... :evil: Someone took some on my camera and even though I hate the picture I could see my weight loss! Still hate the pictures but I can see that I have lost weight so that part was good. I know it is hard to get started and sometimes hard to stay motivated but you start getting little rewards along the way. I am going to start writing the rewards down so when I feel like slacking off I can go read what what the good things to come from this have been and stay motivated. I think it is too easy to forget the good things when we need motivation to keep going so I am keeping a journal type book of all my thoughts and reasons for doing this. There are some posts on earlier months about this, a couple of ladies on here came up with the idea and I think it really helps.

    I'm in and very serious about it this time. I'm afraid to even weigh myself because I know I've put on weight in the last two weeks. I know it's going to freak me out when I do but I've got to face reality.

    I'll be taking a new approach this time.........I'll stay focused on all the healthy delicious foods I can enjoy and not worry about the junk I shouldn't be eating.

    Looking forward to the new month. Not sure if I'm participating or not. I will miss everyone too much.

    But I am at least officially marking my spot to lurk.

    This group is contagious.

    I'm back for the month of June. Can't wait to find out who won for May. I don't have any pastel fat quarters, can I send another color without getting into trouble?

    Rita's mom, Blue dog would love to go for a walk every day. You can vary the intensity to get a better workout - a short stint of intense walking (very short for me) alternated with regular walking. Research showed that that mode of walking burned more calories than just brisk walking. Go figure.

    I know I don't post very often, but I'm back in for June. I've got a family reunion coming in July and I would really like to fit in my nice shorts by then.

    Welcome aboard! Where are you in Europe?
    MJ, I think this is a great idea regardless of where the winner lives. It would push people like me to get my FQ in the mail cuz I know you would be watching.

    I have sent all 4 of my FQs since joining, altho Sandy's is the only one I sent in a timely manner.

    We could send you stamps or FQs to help you with postage.

    Congratulations on the weight loss. I am at your starting weight now and you give me hope that I can lose that amount.

    Yes,it is proof,it CAN be done with out pills,or surgery.Even 2 or 3 pounds a month is good,as long as I keep it off,is all I care about.I know lots of people who lose weight,but they never keep it off,and gain it all back and then some.So,my focus has been small chunks at a time, {5 pounds at a time} and keeping it off,no matter how or what I have to do or cut back to do it.And it's working.Let's go for the 1st 5 pounds this month of the new weight loss challenge.In fact I'm challenging ALL you on here to a 5 pound dual!GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.And welcome to all our new weight loss losers.Together we can do it.

    I put a long msg on the end of May's thread so you can check that out if you want.Count me in for June. Thank you MJ and you all for making this such a wonderful thread-full of encouragement and support. If Nancia has a big enough suitcase, I maybe could squeeze into it. (The scenery, however, while traveling will be highly compromized). Best wishes everyone!

    Although I didn't participate in May I did achieve my personal goal of 10lbs loss! yea me :D

    thanks for hosting this challenge!
    it has helped alot and been super motivating

    has there been a winner announced for may? or are we still waiting to tally?
    I'd like to send a FQ to the winner even tho I wasn't a contestant b/c this is a really fun and motivating way to help eachother.
