As contestants dig in for long haul, they are finding out why we don't normally recommend weighing yourself weekly, but it's a contest so it's part of the deal, right? When it comes to success of the program, here is a very important piece that we don't want anyone to miss: Those who are keeping track of their weight loss project are having the most success overall and when this contest is over, they will have the tools and knowledge to help them continue losing weight and then maintaining their weight loss once they have achieved their goal.

For so long I had kind of "given up" on i I trying to lose weight. I have always enjoyed hiking, biking, etc, but have had to pack around the extra pounds as_l..enjoyed. . these activities. I honestly hadn't even gotten on a scale in probably years before the contest, but felt depressed about my weight and how I looked. I've been in the same size for the past is or so years, but my clothes were fitting differently in the last year, and I was getting more of a stomach. A friend kept bugging me to do the Lose for Life with her, and I finally said yes. I'm SO glad I did! r've been working out with Vicki twice a week and receiving nutritional counseling from her, working out with friends and working out independently. It has taken a lot of time commitment, but honestly, I'm making up or lost time! My husband and kids have been really supportive of me as I leave to go work out most evenings. I feel SO much betted I have more energy, I feel thinner (I know I still have a long way to got.), and my formerly tight- fitting pants are loose! I'm wear-  .... ingjeansthat!, , have been in my closet that '  haven't fit me ;:,,,, in more than i a year and they fit and are loose! Hard to believe/ I'm down 20-plus pounds so far and am on my way to my long-term goal of losing 100 pounds. Thank you, Lord, for giving me self control and helping me to persevere!

I didn't realize tortillas had sugar in them. When I bit into one it tasted sweet, like a pastry. I was a little shocked. I will not eat the sugary treats. I will stay away. I won't eat sweets. I will not touch my son's cupcake. I will not snack on treats I baked. I will not eat those Oreos. I'll walk right by; turn up my nose. I will not eat them here or there. I will not eat them anywhere. I will not eat those sugary treats. I'll stay away. I won't eat sweets.
