HYC and My Own Personal Challenge

I got on the scale today and as I expected, no loss. But I can't say I'm surprised. If your efforts are half-a**ed, then you can't bitch about no weight loss, right?

Sooo, I'm taking a new approach to my diet. I've been doing Phase 1 of South Beach and my craving of whole grains has gotten the best of me. To much munching. I am going on to Phase 2 and giving myself a challenge: "30 pounds by Thanksgiving." That works out to about 2 lbs a week and I think I can do that if I ride my bike 3 to 5 times a week. I rode today and even though my bum was numb after 20 minutes, I hung in for 40 minutes.

I have at least 100 lbs to lose so 30 will put a good size dent in my over all goal. I am so glad to know so many of you that are out there fighting the same battles...and winning!
