Stupid cruises, everyone has to be skinny. There's a $240 pot to whoever loses the most weight before Jan 15. This has been my exact lunch and afternoon snack (no cottage cheese) 5 days a week for one month. This, coupled with drinking my breakfast and post workout snack, and 4 days a week of cardio (treadmill) has lost me 16lbs. I'm down from 185 to 169.

I can't get much lower, I haven't been in the 160's since high school! On the bright side I feel great, and have a boatload more energy. But I gotta say, the raw broccoli, and chicken breasts are getting old.

I started a diet of Indian box lunches, a diuretic, thyroid supplement,a 16 flights of stairs daily (workdays).

Losing 2 pounds a week.

I am trying for a loss of 60 pounds in a years time. I am down to 218 now, shooting for 160 but will be gleeful to see myself at 180.

Oh. Todays lunch is Masala Okra, Curried Lentils, and Coffee.

I'm not a very healthy eater - I guess b/c I only weigh about 135-140 (5'6") I don't think its necessary - but I'm sure my arteries, etc. aren't pleased with me.

For shiz and giggles - here's what I ate for lunch: 6" turkey/provolone sub with mayo only (no veggies), ziploc full of cheesecurls, cup of mandarin oranges, cherry coke, and a pumpkin cookie. A little bit of everything, but nothing too great LOL.

FWIW, breakfast I had cheerios w/ 2%, a piece of peanut butter toast, and of course, a coke.

Luckily most dinners I get are a little more balanced than these... including some good lean meat/fish/etc. and veggies usually.

I guess it could be worse though!

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, raw carrots and celery with dip, red pear, and cherry yogurt. Followed up with a second fusion of green tea tips.

Typical style lunch here.

I bet my lunch today was worse than your lunch. I got a big-mac at McD's and there was a 1" twig with thorns in it. If I was the litigious type I would sue Michael Jordan - ( he own's that particular McDonalds ).

I'm guessing that was intentionally put there....I can imagine dead mice and cockroaches showing up, but a twig w/ thorns? Who did you piss off?

You know, you can change up the menu a bit and still lose weight. It doesn't have to be torture.
