Default One month to go and I'm stepping it up...

I've done pretty good for myself, I lost 25 lbs last month but I only have one more month before I go on a major international trip and I have clothes that are still tight that I bought specifically for the trip.

So I am stepping it up. I did 35 minutes on my elliptical tonight along with some upper body strength training.

I have also been feeling a bit lax with my food although I am still following my overall plan, I have been stretching it a bit into those "rarely" items but making them not so rare.

I just wanted to post because I need to make a commitment to myself and others that I am going to push myself and do the best I can. I also am not setting up any unreachable goal but I am aiming to get under 200 by the time I go on my trip.

That is all.

Ok! I am with you... I only have 5 for the x-mas goal but my arse has been slacking *even if I have lost inches?!*...

So I am going to step it up with you.

No more stepping off plan for me. I want to be 240 for new years... And if I hit it sooner then I will bump again!

Ok! Straight up... First time through... I lost and then got sick and gained more than I had lost. Second time through I lost, got where I needed to... Enjoyed it. Took prednizone (oh lordy how I hate it) and was creeping back toward my worst.
So let's do this (C is stopping point apparently):
1st: S/C/G: 334/280/200 - 2007-2008
2nd: S/C/G: 369/291.2/200 - 2009-2010
NOW:

Jasmine,

Part of it was following 3 weeks out of 4 where I was on business trips eating out and I was up 10 lbs when I came back. It was horrid and I knew I needed to do something. I switched to a vegan, whole foods diet and the weight started disappearing.

Congratulations on all your hard work, Nelie! I have no doubt in my mind that you'll make this work. Where are you going, by the way?

you get on a cruise ship where there are lots of lectures and you spend some quiet time as well but then you get to disembark and play with penguins

What a great adventure! I was having trouble picturing where you would actually stay while you were there! I didn't think there were Best Westerns or Howard Johnsons in Antarctica, but admittedly, there's an awful lot I don't know! The cruise ship makes more sense.
