Hello everybody!! Did everyone have a nice weekend?? Mine could have been better. Unfortunately my car died on my on Sunday and I had to have my dad come get me. Luckily I was on my way to his house so I ended up dying out only a few minutes from there, but still. What kind of father wants to mess with his daughter's car on Father's Day? I should get the verdict on whats wrong with it this afternoon because we are having it towed to a dealership. Let's hope its nothing too serious. I also find out this afternoon the results of my dad's cat scan. For those of you who don't know, my dad was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer last week and today we find out how far its spread, what kind of treatment and what stage he is in. All the grusome details! But enough about me, how did everyone do with their weight loss this weekend?? I didn't eat too much yesterday, but I did load up on desserts. Oops! I also had McDonald's this morning, but my Egg Mcmuffin didn't have cheese or ham so that wasn't too bad. Hopefully if we learn good news this afternoon, my parents and I will go walking and I'll be able to burn off my McDonalds' Well lets have a great week and lose some weight! Good luck everyone!

I am totally against weight loss competitions. In fact, i'd ban them. Making a competition out of something that obssesses millions of people and that affects our health the way it does is far from my principles. It's nice to encourage people to look after their weight, but paying people to do whatever it takes to lose as much as possible is completely different.

Thanks for your input, but if you would have read what this competition was from the start it is STRICTLY A MOTIVATIONAL WEIGHT LOSS COMPETITION! There are no prizes awarded. Just a way for a bunch of people to share their successes and failures to people that are going through the same thing. Please learn about something before you go and bash it. Thank you.

even if there is no awards, i think that linking competition and weight loss is not the best idea. And btw i was not bashing, was just giving my opinion, which is different to yours, but i appreciate and respect yours.

Hi racheld. Hope that you have some promising news today regarding your dad. We partied all weekend, so I have to be really careful this week or I am sol! We had a cookout for fathers day. I wasn't going to eat much for lunch due to the cookout, but my daughter really wanted pizza and she even said that she would pay for it. That was my downfall! Just remember today is a new day so we can start fresh:)
