    congrats on the losses girls. just want to direct you all to the biggest loser challenge which is finally going to start up on september 23rd.

    http://bestdestinati....142#post978684

    there is no money on the line this season, just the glory of being the biggest loser and a special avatar/banner for the winner.

    the biggest benefits of participating: accountability, and motivation from your fellow ladies!

    i've been holding off starting this diet forever because i wanted to do it for biggest loser. my only problem is weigh-ins are wednesdays, and isn't that a crappy day to have as cheat day? i assume most of you do cheat day on the weekend. i'm sure you're all guilty of weighing midweek right? how has your mid-week weight compared to morning-of-cheat-day weight?

      Coug - My mid-week weight is significantly different from my cheat day (saturday) weigh-in. Because of the cycling of low and high glycemic index foods in this diet, your weight fluctuates quite a bit depending on the day and time of day. My plan for BL7 was to use my Saturday weigh-in as the wednesday # if that's ok. It will be my most recent and accurate weigh-in so I don't see why I can't do it. I dunno. Am I making sense?

        Same thing with me. I always weigh more on the wednesday than sat. I think that Kathy has a good idea, if it's allowed in the rules.

        For everyone else, congrats on your weight losses!!!

        I didn't lose weight last week, but back on track this week so I'm hoping to see more progress.

        Keep up the great work ladies! I'm on my 7th week. If I can do this, then so can you!!

          kathy i just saw your posts here and in the BL7 thread and i don't see why it would be a problem. not sure why i didn't think of it myself, lol.

            haha thanks Coug! :) I don't know, I don't see why it should be a problem. I'll use my saturday weigh-in # from the saturday BEFORE the wednesday if that makes sense.

            For example:

            I'll weigh in on Sept 19/09 and I'll send Ginalyn that # on Wednesday, Sept 23/09 when BL7 starts. That should work, shouldn't it?

              yep exactly kathy. really no one has any way of knowing which day your weight is from. like i'm sure there's been times in the past 6 seasons where someone was going to be out of town on wednesday and just made sure they took their weight whenever feasible, kwim?

                    I have been living on cottage cheese! I have a really hard time with low carb because I don't really like meat that much!

                    I have body fortress in vanilla flavor, it's not great, but I can tolerate it, I just don't use too much water and I chug it.


                    So I'm into my second week, as I type I'm sitting her with a plate of chicken sausage peppers & onions. So happy tomorrow is a low gi/gl day!

                    So I had a really bad day today, time wise. I went to look at cars around noon time and didn't grab any lunch before hand. Well, I think the finance people forgot about me because I was there for HOURS!! My the time I walked back into my house it was after 7pm, so I didn't eat anything from 9 this morning until now.

                    I know that's not good, because we're supposed to eat frequently, but I'm not sure if I should eat a few proteins and a few fats during this meal or just forget it.

                      Well ladies, I'm FINALLY going to start! I downloaded the pdf AGES ago, and have been too stressed out my arse to do anything about it due to these stupid A+ certification exams for school. Well, I wrote my second exam today and I PASSED! I'm so excited I could jump over the moon So I think I'll start on Monday ^_^

                      Any other alternative to these protein shakes? Or is everyone basically just suffering through it?
