Tomorrow is the first day of Summer. So since Labor Day is on a Monday I thought I would start a Labor Day Challenge. Just put down SW and GW for Labor Day. My Birthday is on Labor Day this Year so it will be more special. Good Luck, Everyone!

I'm hoping to be at my goal by then. Even though 5 pounds doesn't seem like much, it's feeling like an insurmountable 5 pounds right now. I have always hated the cliche "the last 5 (or 10) pounds is the hardest" but I'm starting to respect it lately.

I weighed in 2xs under 200lbs but they were only .2 & .4 from 200 so I did not change my ticker. Today I weighed in at 199.4 so I thought that it would be appropriate to do so now....I AM IN ONEDERLAND NOW never to return to the 200s! WOOO HOOO!

I started this challenge and I haven't been doing very well. Stressed out by some family members that have health problems. I'm not helping myself by overeating and not exercising enough. I won't reach my goal weight probably until December at the rate I'm going. Good Luck, Everyone!

sorry about the family stresses, VickieLou. Sounds like right now, the fact that you are maintaining (plus a 1 lb loss) is FANTASTIC! It's great when the rest of the world cooperates with our weight loss efforts, but when that happens, being able to maintain is a victory. But try to find a little bit of time for yourself, if possible - I can pretty much guarantee that you will feel better if you can carve out your time to exercise, even if you aren't focusing on the weight loss itself.

VidkiLou - do not let your families health problems become your health problem. I have discovered that when I am stressed, taking it out on exercise is much more satisfying then stress eating. Sure I still find myself starting to stress eat, but then I ask myself what I am doing and usually pull it back together pretty quickly.

AprilSnow - You are SO close!!!

How is everyone else doing?!?
