Hi I am starting my weightloss journey on Monday, Nov 5, 2007. My mother and I are doing this together. Join in if you like. We are going to weigh in every Monday and put in $5 a week. (Of course you dont have to do this with us but you can do it yourself at the end of your goal you get to keep it!) We would like to lose 25 pounds by Christmas. It might be a stretch but something to go for and keep going. I think that is about 3.5 pounds a week or so. I am going to keep tracked of what I eat, eat 3 meals a day and water. I am cutting out pop. Only water. Im not much of a cook so I bought south beach dinners. Alot of sodium I know but its a start. Someone on here said you take your weight and multiply it by 7 equals the amount of calories you should eat a day to lose weight. So I will go for that. I will go for walks as much as I can. I will come back on here tomorrow and post my weight. Wish me luck and join in if you like! No bad comments on this thread just motivation and suggestions! This is a happy thread. LOL

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
