The bod pod was so much easier than the dunk test I did. It is just sitting in a nice dry, quiet space for about 5 min and not moving. I would do it again for sure. I am not sure of the cost or where they have them. The program I am doing had this factored in. Here is a link to the company's home page.

Yes, Carla, I am dancing at least 3 nights a week, I'm doing 45-60 minutes on an elliptical on the days I don't dance and I'm working on setting up a strength training routine but I haven't started it yet. (It's my final project for my Conditioning and Training class.)

I sent an inquiry this morning to the one place listed in Iowa and I'll see what they come back with about the BOD POD testing.

Trending down is a good thing. Self control is better though.

I actually began the application process for The Biggest Loser, but now I'm glad I didn't follow through with it. Doing this at home and having to make choices to not eat what the rest of my family is eating is reality for me and the it's one I'm going to deal with for the rest of my life so I might as well start now. I'm thankful we have message boards like this where we can all connect as we are struggling through our daily lives though! Even if I only manage to pop in for a few days and then disappear for awhile.

I'm taking my middle daughter out to lunch today so we can have some mommy time. I'm really looking forward to it, but for now, I need to get busy and write some papers!

Have a great day everyone!

Began IP 7/7/10 and lost 85 pounds--regained about 25. Back to finish what I started!
