Went to the gym last week for the first time in a decade. I signed up for a personal trainer for three sessions to get off on the right foot. I had the fantasy of some muscled hunk for a trainer like you see on the celebrity TV shows. What I got instead was a skinny geeky 28 year old (30 years younger than me)! So much for that fantasy!

But he was very nice and showed me some core stretches for flexibility and introduced me to the latest weight resistance machines. I went back two more times last week on my own and it was not intimidating at all. I can do this! It will be easier to lose weight adding an exercise plan than just starving it off on a diet alone.

Week one (ends Jan 5th): 261 (lost 1)
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 258 (lost 3)
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 255 (lost 3)
Week four (ends Jan 26th):
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):

Hey everyone.. Hope you guys are having a great Tuesday. My weight loss slowed down a little quicker than I had hoped. I'm hoping it's a tom thing and thats it. We'll have to see. 15 pounds is not bad for 22 days, but I really want to make my goal. I have 10 more pound to do by Feb 14th. So we'll see if I can.

Good luck to everyone!

ChickieBoom you and I have the same resolution......to become a runner in 2013. It seemed like such a far fetch dream last year but slowly becoming a reality. I started by doing the C25K program as well. I was thrilled with myself for jogging 1 1/2 miles the other night and 2 miles last night. We can do this!

sassyangies 15lbs is great for 22 days! I'm sure you can meet goal for Valentine's Day. I would really like to lose 12 by Valentines but I know my TOM is coming up shortly as well and those whole 2 weeks, time before and after included, are usually my worse for the month. But, I keep plugging away and hope to meet it. If not, I won't let it get me down because I know I did the best I could.

Wow...you're quite a bit further ahead than me. I was so happy to jog for three minutes without stopping this morning. I can't wait until I can jog 2 miles like you! I think it was 10 degrees this morning and I still got out there. We're going to be runners! Actually, I think we're already runners?

I'd call us runners! I am going at a very slow pace, or else I would have never been able to go that far. I think I overdid it the other night. My foot has been killing me ever since. If it doesn't feel better in the next few days I'm going to have to see the doctor. I must have been landing on the outside of the ball of my left foot with each step, it is sore to touch now. Hope it's not a stress fracture or something

Thanks.. I hope I make my goals. I was up right before TOM Im in the middle of it and lost that pound again. So hopefully it's gone forever..lol.. I couldn't believe how much it changed my whole attitude. Since I started on the first I have been positive. I mean I've had hard days, but it's been relatively easy to keep motivated and then BAM Tom came and the day before I started I just didn't care and I wanted everything!! I made it through, but it honestly scared me because usually when I mess up I quit. I did not quit though and I'm proud of myself.
Good luck to you on your goal!! We can do this!!

New Year's Resolution is to be 240 pounds by Dec of 2013

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is: lose 25 pounds.

SW: 310
Week one (ends Jan 5th): 303 = 7 pounds down
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 301 = 2 pounds down
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 295 = 6 pounds down
Week four (ends Jan 26th): 295 = 0 pounds down
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):

Hey!! Congrats to all the losers today!! Anyone who didn't lose don't worry we can do this! My weight stayed the same. Not sure why. I was OP all week so it doesn't make sense. TOM was here so I'm just going to blame that. Have a good day everyone!! 3

Congrats on the losses!!

And Angelia, I think after 15 lbs in 3 weeks, your body just needed a chance to catch up. Hang in there and I'm sure you'll see another drop soon.

I do my WI on Sundays so I'll be back tomorrow to report in.

This week wasn't that great for me, poor meal planning meant that I either ate lunch on-the-go or didn't even eat, which caused some overeating at night. Meal planning really works for me, just got to keep at it. And this week I am starting to incorporate exercise, so more pounds will be lost.

Starting weight: 258.6
Week one (ends Jan 5th): 258.8
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 256.4
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 254.4
Week four (ends Jan 26th): 254.6
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):
