The scale this morning says I lost 5lbs. already, but I still don't believe it! I just started 3 days ago! Mostly I'm scared of two things - losing my motivation, and maintaining.

rhythm - I need to start saving for this costume. It IS steep - but at least I can use it as a dress for work, too. I think my patients will like it

Pic in costume?!>@>#? Man, I better step up my game!

I'm down 5 lbs this week.

The scale says I'm down 7 lbs, but that's very uncommon for me. So I bumped it down a little.

Hi everyone! I'm so glad more people are joining.

Congrats to everyone who is losing weight. It's a great kick start to the challenge. I've lost a few pounds this week as well.

Robot- We're pretty much the same height and starting weight I'm sure we'll both hit "overweight" soon enough!

I know it's early, but I've been practicing. I'm weighing in at 221 for the last 3 days, so I think it's official. I'm down 4 lbs. I've been passing up the fast food, avoiding the icecream, and cutting down on the starch. And really, it was because I joined this challenge that I've been thinking about it before I eat. Here's an example: I got off of work, having eaten nothing from 2-8 and was starving. (I know, pack snacks, but sometimes life gets in the way of common sense, ya know?)

There is a dairy queen three blocks away from my shop and I have to pass it on the way to pick up my girls at daycare. I have visions of moolattes and burgers dancing in my head. Then, at a red light, I remember I'm going on this challenge. I change the vision to two grilled chicken wraps and a diet soda. I feel better on the drive home. I think for me it just comes down to making more of these good choices than bad.

Thanks inkdiva! I haven't been able to dance for the past year so I am determined to get back to class in the fall. I also want to join my teacher's dance troupe - they perform locally and at charity events around the city -they are a fun bunch of women to dance with.

Well I am happy to say that I have been lifting my hand weights and doing 30 minutes on my bike most days. On the off days I have been walking for about an hour. I have noticed that walking up steep hills is not as hard as it used to be - small change, but worth noting.

I am going to aquafit tomorrow.

Congratulations to everyone who has worked on their goals this week!
