Great job you guys! Keep up the good work.

I'm down only by a pound this week. Which is negligible given that it can be due to water weight or general fluctuations. -_-

I'll just have to make more of an effort. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to fit in exercise?

I work as an Auxiliary Nurse at a Geriatric Care Center. 8 hours a day 5 days a week. When I get home I'm terribly exhausted so I find it difficult to work out.

I walk to and from work a few times a week, whenever I can't find someone to give me a lift. I don't know how far away from work I am in terms of distance; I do know that it takes me about an hour to get home at a steady pace.

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

Way to go, PinkPeachPie, Beewidget and Astoria!

Astoria- Honestly, your walking already sounds like a great thing right now for few times a week! You can use google maps to enter your address, click on directions then enter the address of your work to calculate the distance. As for more exercise, there are many free videos online that go for up to 30 minutes so you can look and see what you would like to try. HTH!

Am I too late to join? Sorry I just saw this and have been looking for something exactly like this. Thanks for starting it Brandibooxoxo! I have my back info from the 20th so I'll use that in the template. (I write it down on paper too)
So here's my stats, good luck everyone!

SW:226.6
GW:190 (Onederland!)

3/20/13 226.6
3/27/13 224.2
4/3/13 219.6
4/10/13 217.6
4/17/13 214.8
4/24/13 211.0
5/1/13 206.8
5/8/13 203.8
5/15/13 201.6
5/22/13 201.4
5/29/13 196.6
6/5/13 196.0
6/12/13 Gone Camping
6/21/13 196.0

So, didn't get to 190, but had a great time camping and maintaining 196 for a couple of weeks. Yes, I did have some treats and dinners out! But now it is the first day of summer and time to get back in gear!

Welcome Kayin

Thank you Amandie.

I calculated the distance and it comes out to 1.819 miles one way. So it's a little over 3 miles whenever I do walk to and from work. That's always good.

I've already found a few workouts I like. I'll be giving them a try.

Again, thank you!

I've been stalled a few days, but seeing here that I actually lost 4.5 this week really made me realize my body is just trying to catch up!

Wow, you guys have had some great losses!

My own weigh-in for the week is 259.2. Which is only a 1.8lb loss, so...not stellar, but I guess it actually isn't that bad considering I binged a little on Easter this week and had a gain to contend with along with the muscle building from the 30DS. I expect next week's weigh-in to be much better without a holiday thrown in this coming week, haha.

opheliaphoenix: I'm going through a weight stall due to a new workout also. We're almost definitely losing inches though!

Broke my stall! Maybe I'm done building muscle from my new workout and ready to burn FAT!

Way to go, people who lost!

Keep pushing through if you gained/maintained! It will and has to COME OFF.

NSV- fit in my sz 14 mini-goal skinny jeans!! I am also out of the obese and into the overweight category now, it's been nearly 10 years! So happy because that's all I've ever thought about since I was 230 and now I'm here?! Onwards to "normal"/healthy weight range!
