This was an eye opener as I stay on plan 100% but my calories seem to be low as well as my carbs. I did known that as I look at my stats each day and I'm usually on the 40/40/20. So I haven't worried to much about not hitting the carbs exactly, but maybe I need to bump them up. I don't have snacks.
Unless it's pickles. Maybe a higher carb snack or vegetable would put me closer. I just don't want to get obsessive about it. I'm on plan so that should be enough...
You have done great!! I will eat nuts for a snack and I have done fine with that so you could try to add them in if you think you can just eat a few. I also thought it would help people to see just what is going on with there plan. I sure hope more post there stats!!..
I really thought more people would do this. Oh well I guess it might be to much work to look everthing up. I still hope more will post...
Thanks Yvette. I hope more take the time to do it as well. It was very beneficial for me to see it laid out like that. Do you think more haven't participated because they are NOT logging their food? I hope that's not it...
I really am not sure I thought it was a great idea. I think that maybe it takes to much time to write it all down and then come back and post. Who knows, but I do think if people did it they would see what you and I have seen. Keep up the good work it really does pay off!..

Avg loss/week - 4.43.
I don't log my meals on a regular basis. When I try a new L&G I'll log it to see what the numbers are for it, but otherwise I don't log. I don't doctor recipes and I don't use much by way of condiments (some lo-carb ketchup, and FF whip cream sometimes)..
I do diabetic shakes even though I'm not diabetic, because they have the same protein count as the 70 shakes and a lower carb count (and admittedly not quite as good tasting but it's a trade off I'm willing to make). I drink 70 shakes for flavors I like that don't have diabetic options. I also drink the teas, punch and other drinks, along with bars, brownies and pudding. Don't do soups, eggs, or oatmeals. If I can't put it in a blender or a shaker bottle I don't buy it (bars and puffs aside obviously).
No regular exercise yet, but I just got a free treadmill off Craig's List. I work late swing and am not a morning person and walking at 1 am doesn't strike me as the safest of activities, so now that I have a treadmill, I'm planning on walking and getting my endurance up in preparation for adding in some weight training...
# of weeks: I start my 8th week tues..
Average Calories: 880.
Average carbs: 91 (I tend to always be on the high end at the end of the day).
Weight lost: 24 lbs..
Average per week: 3.
Favorite L&G: spaghetti squash lasagna, pork tenderloin or chicken in the crock pot, baked cauliflower, mushrooms/bell pepper mix, salad, etc.
Favorite Medifast meal: peanut butter soft serve, all the bars, oatmeal pancakes.
I excersise twice to three times a week and am active with work and my family. I have started doing the 4 & 2 plan the past week and lost 4 lbs. I think my body just needed a little change. I will probably go back to 5 & 1 in another week or so. I like the variety...
My ticker is wrong. I'm at 171 right now...
1st off...........CONGRATS on meeting your goal. Sounds so very exciting!.

Yup! This is a great thread. I love checking out everyone's progress cause it does make you see that "WOW!" If I stay on plan for so may weeks I CAN lose such and such number of pounds. That number of weeks is soooooooo small in reality to what it took for me to lose 30 pounds years ago that this is very motivating!.
