Daily Weight Loss Challenges (started 08/04/09)

Recommended Posts

Hi girls! I think we all need a little motivation on here since the biggest loser challenge is on hold indefinitely. So I am going to post (or you all can post if you beat me to it) a small daily challenge to help us with our weight loss goals.

 

Today I am challenging you to replace at least 1 sweetened drink with water. If you are already a water-only gal, then I challenge you to drink an extra glass today!

 

Good luck!

I'm in!! I just realized I'm 99 days til my wedding day and I'm panicking because I tired on a pair of pants this morning and they were tighter than usual! AHHHHH!!! I'm a huge fan of food, so my weight loss plans have not been going very well!

Tip: I recently got a box of mini-freezies. 10 cals a peice, and they are great at satisfying cravings! Even if I eat 2 or 3, I'm still looking at less calories than a regular popsicle! :)

Love the water idea! Will substitute for my glass of wine tonight! wink.gif

How did you all do on your challenge yesterday? I had 32 oz of water and 32 oz of Crystal Light- no tea or soda!!

 

Today is going to be FIBER DAY! woohoo! lol

 

Aim to get the RDA 25g of fiber today. Here are some of my favorite fiber-rich foods:

 

Fiber One Bars

Quaker Oats High Fiber Oatmeal

Pinto Beans

Raspberries

Pears

Apples

Whole-wheat Spaghetti

Popcorn

Corn on the Cob

 

 

What are your favorite high-fiber foods?

 

Did you know fiber is not digestable and therefore does not pass through our bloodstream as calories?

 

Fiber has been shown to help regulate digestion, lower the risk of heart disease, and also help you feel fuller- which is a plus when you are dieting.

 

Have a fantastic fiber-filled day y'all!!

 

My first fiber item of the day is my High Fiber oatmeal with light butter...it is SO filling and has 10 grams of fiber. That's almost half of what I need for the day!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
