I posted this week's results. If I missed you, let me know (I did this in a hurry). Also, if you want me to add anything to the results, let me know too.

I weighed myself this morning and my weight jumped waaay up.

I have a date tonight, and this is all I'm going to be thinking about! ...And he's CUUUTE!! D:

I did exercise yesterday, more than usual, but I can't say that my muscles ached or anything. I had an awful stomach ache though. Could that have had anything to do with it?

TOM isn't due for another week or two.

Also, I have a favourite pair of jeans that make my bottom look pretty good IMO. Buuuut -- My thighs had to go and wear holes in them. I'm determined to repair this pair of jeans tonight. I've never sewn a thing in my life before but d@mmit I will learn!

I'm going to start from August 1th and then on. Here are what I hope to accomplish during this challenge:

1. Goto the gym 3x a week and do the 30-minute express circuit and elliptical or walk a mile on days I don't go.
2. Eat 1500-1800 calories / calorie shifting
3. Drink 64oz of water a day and eliminate diet soda!

I want to be at 190 for this challenge!

On 8/1 I was 216.3lbs!

I was excited until I found out he ordered beer. -_- It's his turn to pay tonight, so I can't argue...

hey sorry i was AWOL these past few days. I was pretty bad last weekend, and shot up to 160 :-/ Then I weighed in this morning and I'm 158.8 Hoorah!

I just took up jogging, for the first time in five years. I went on sunday, ran/walked for around 50 minutes, and LOVED it. My muscles are still aching, but I felt so alive! It's hard, because between my son and night-classes, it feels like I never have time to go for a jog (I know, I know... excuses, excuses. :-P ) But have worked out that I will go every sunday, thursday and friday afternoon. Is it crazy that I cannot wait for this thursday's jog?

I can totally relate to your post Rhythm, about the pants thing... many a good pair of pants of mine have fallen victim to those thigh-holes >

Gack, went on a fantastic weekend up in Spokane... and basically toasted half the progress I had made. Not fun. However, I did stumble across a random Corvette show in a park which was -awesome-. So many gorgeous cars. *drool*.

So my date didn't go so well last night. He got drunk and passed out. Typical. Next time, we're going to a movie.

I ended up hanging out with my sister for the remainder of the night. We went out and got Subway. Then I had a huge slice of cake. Not good, Rhythm, not good... But on the bright side, maybe this will kick up my metabolism again? It's been a long time since I've ate that much.

Btw, about the jeans, there are these awesome 'denim' patches that you can iron onto the inside of your pants when they're wearing thin. I did a crappy sew job so I ironed those suckers on, and they're as good as new. I feel like such a handyman now. ;P

Oops, got busy and missed weigh in. Not that I haven't been weighing myself, but just didn't get on the computer to record. It's been a little iffy, super stressed and finally cleared my storage unit completely out. Was really like a time capsule, found my wedding pics where I was at my highest weight, double chin in every and I do mean EVERY picture. At the time, I didn't see it. Selective eyesight maybe?

Got my weight ticker! Yay! I've been up and down, so I'd be happy to maintain current loss for next week. Fair is in town and I get my yearly treats. Christmas is the only time I allow myself to eat fudge (or I'd need to lose a lot more than 70 lbs.), and every fair = cotton candy and footlong corndog. I do share with my kiddos, so that helps, and I'll eat super healthy the rest of the day to offset it.

Happy to see all the progress, and happy to have this thread, it really does make me think twice before I cheat, I mean eat.

I'm totally behind on plan, I actually literally stopped counting calories and even watching what I eat for the past month. I have not gained, but I'm maintaining between 177-174. For about 3 months now. I need to start losing again!

So I want to REALLY go back on plan and stick to my calorie budget, and lose some weight before my birthday (Nov 17). But I wanna be able to wear a hot costume for Halloween! I wanna lose 20 pounds which I think is reasonable. My friend is a makeup artist and if I can lose that 20 lbs by then she will transform me into Medusa for Halloween with a full body paint of scales and stuff!! But it requires me wearing next to nothing, so I need to lose the weight. That's my goal, for Halloween 2010.

HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE PEOPLE! :P

My week seems to be going great! I just hope I can keep it up for the week and not ruin my diet.

Well, ladies, this is my mid-week checkin. I hope everyone is having a good diet week. I realized today that I'm only 3 lbs away from the 250s. I haven't been in this range since 1999! At the rate I'm going, it will take the month of August to get there but I'm really pumped! So I guess I have a mini goal. I really like having this challenge - it's keeping me motivated, for sure.

Hi ladies! I hope everyone is working out and staying on plan.

The other day, I was so stuffed that I convinced myself I ate too many calories. I calculated and found out I only ate 1,400 calories. It's so weird. I hope within the next few weigh ins I'll be in onderland.
