    On a side note, ladies, please remember to have your feet showing on your scale pics. This is out of fairness for all the ladies and applies to all contestants. Also, as a reminder for contest fairness, anyone who misses two weeks of weigh-ins without notifying me will have to be switched to the non-competing category. I completely understand things come up and with a busy life, we're bound to forget things, but to stay eligible for the ‘win’, please let me know when you’ll miss a weigh-in beforehand. Non-competing category players will still be just as involved as anyone else. Thanks and good luck! =]



    Quick Question.....When I hold the camera..it adds weight (I know that it is only a few ounces...but I'm one of those crazies where every ounce counts...)

     

    Is it possible to send 2 pics...one with feet and one without feet?  I don't care about the winning...I care about the lowest number (I know I'm super nuts..no one else has to tell me that )

      That would be completely fine =] I believe and trust everyone on the weight they tell; it's just for proof and to make sure it's fair for all the ladies. I heard from previous hosts and moderators that told me there were some big disagreements and fights in previous season's on here with claims over possible cheating and such. Although I highly doubt anyone in this group would start a fight of any sort, I just wanted to add that precaution to prevent it.

       

      And sending in the two scale pics, one with feet and one without, would be totally fine =] Best of luck!

        WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26 – OCTOBER 2, 2010

         

         

         

         

        Tip of the Week
         

        Did you know?... A weight-loss product that claims to be “natural” or “herbal” is not necessarily safe. These products are not usually scientifically tested to prove that they are safe or that they work. For example, herbal products containing ephedra (now banned by the U.S. Government) have caused serious health problems and even death. Newer products that claim to be ephedra-free are not necessarily danger-free, because they may contain ingredients similar to ephedra. Talk with your health care provider before using any weight-loss product. Some natural or herbal weight-loss products can be harmful.

         

         

         

         

         

         

        Challenge of the Week

        (I think Ann’s suggestions are great, so I’m posting but ALL credit goes to Ann :)

         

         

        Go on a bike ride for at least an hour

         

         

         

         

         

         

        Myth of the Week(Is it True or False?)

         

        “Nuts are fattening and you should not eat them if you want to lose weight.”

         

         

         

        Fact: In small amounts, nuts can be part of a healthy weight-loss program. Nuts are high in calories and fat. However, most nuts contain healthy fats that do not clog arteries. Nuts are also good sources of protein, dietary fiber, and minerals including magnesium and copper.

         

         

        Tip: Enjoy small portions of nuts. One-half ounce of mixed nuts has about 84 calories.

         

         

         

         

         

         

        Healthy Recipe of the Week

         

         

        3-Cheese White Pizza

          I have spent all day going through this forum - while working of course - and you ladies are all a real inspiration for me.  I have currently lost 15lbs but have now hit a plateau.  Needless to say this is very upsetting and I havent been back at it since.  I need to try something new - maybe weight watchers - maybe jillians 30 day shred - maybe both.  But work and life just gets in the way LOL

           

          Thanks ladies for making my tuesday :) I wish you nothing my weight loss!!

            Ugh, what a terrible weekend! We were in Montreal visiting my family, and it was FI's first time there so we had to try all the famous Montreal foods. Of course that means smoked meat, poutine, bagels, my gramma's famous gnocchi lol...and the list goes on.

             

            Back to reality and eating better this week!!

              It's friday again!!!  Time to send in your weigh-ins! Just a friendly reminder that entries are due by 12:00pm EST on Saturday. If you can't make it on time or have any questions, just let me know =]

               

              I hope everyone had a better week than I did; the camping trip led me a bit off track. Not that many healthy food options that can be prepared on the road, so FI and I pretty much ate what we wanted and then that continued during the week. I will definitely work on getting back on track this weekend. Maybe I should post a tasty and healthy snack that can be prepared on the go in one of the weekly updates.

               

              Best of luck, ladies!

                      Thanks ladies!  I have been following the weight watchers points system, I don't go to the meetings, just got the information and follow it at home.  I have also been trying to get exercise in every day, and drink a lot of water...I think it also has a lot to do with the fact that I have a fair bit of weight to lose, so I think the first bit of weight will come off easier than the last!  Not so sure how next weeks weigh in will go, this weekend has been filled with birthdays and a batchelorette for my best friend...have to get back on track starting tomorrow!  Can't believe its been 6 weeks already!
