Goal Weight:140.0 lb
following: mandp2012's own diet
performance: losing 1.2 lb a week

My name is Penny, I'm 37 and from Boise, Idaho. I lost almost 40 lbs about 3 years ago but this last year I have gained 18 back. I guess being happy and in love will make that I just got engaged in January and I want to fit into a cute sexy dress for my wedding. I also refuse to buy new clothes. We just moved and are all unpacked so there is no excuse for eating crap. i started my diet yesterday (6/19/2011) and started tracking my calories today. I hope to have this weight gone in 9 weeks. Thats only 2 lbs a week!
Its August 23,2011 and I still have almost 5 pounds to go. After trying the Dukan diet for a while I'm back to my own diet but with more wisdom. I am cutting back on salt, sugar and fat and eating more protien. I still have my carbs but in moderstion and only complex carbs. So no white flour or sugar. I try to use stevia when I can. I'm surprised how many product now use it as their sweetner. My new favorite drink it Vitamin Water Zero. Anyway I hope to go dress shopping soon and love the way I look in them.

1st goal- 133 DONE!!
2nd goal- 128

What are your motivations or how are you going to celebrate when you join your goal weight?
My motivation is also fitting into a wedding dress and looking great in it. I also am going to get my belly button pierced. I know it kinda silly and I'm 37 so I'm a little old for it but I have always wanted to do it. I never show my stomach in public but my fiance will like it and I found the cutest something blue belly ring for our wedding.

coffee creamer alternatives.
I just use half and half. You can also use a flavored stevia. I can find Vanilla at Fred Myer or a health food store but there are other flavors that you can find on the internet. I got rootbeer, grape and stawberry at a fair a few years back. I like to add it to water and iced tea,
