Thank you for asking Prettymom..... I did end up having to get a vehicle. Went in looking at a used car and ended up leasing a 2013 Accord instead.. Oh well.. payments are cheaper and the insurance covers everything. Best thing.. it shouldn't need any major repairs for a long time! 3 year lease... so not married.. but the buy out is a nice low no. So just have to be careful with the milleage as I am a driver and a lead Foot! LOL

Hope that you get into ONDERLAND on this challenge! I am looking forward to congratulating you on that MILESTONE!!! :)

That was fast! I didn’t post on the weekend, I came in today and booom Cindy had lost the 5 pounds! Wow CONGRATULATIONS CINDY! That was fast! You rock girl!

I’m in again, my stats are:
SW: 162.1
GW: 157.1
If I lose those 5 (which I’ve been trying for months) I will be in a normal/healthy weight, no longer overweight! Yey yey

Sue: new car? Wow! The Accord is beautiful!!! Congrats! What color is it?
Ian: Big woosh, congrats!

07-01-2013, 06:56 PM
Well Okay Fiftyfive. If losing 5 lbs gets you to that normal weight... LETS do it! :) I am happy for you and I know sometimes someone here just has a WOOSH bigtime! IAN was close to doing it too!! LOL Alot of us (if we get the 5 lbs off) will be un unknown territory (or long time ago territory ) :D

and I got a Blue Accord SE... new engine and no settling in the gears (its automatic) so alittle weird.. but niiiiceeeeeee :) Thank you :)

Prettymom... I am so sorry.. I thought you had gotten well.. I am so sorry.. BUT you will get well and kick butt! ONDERLAND is quaking in its shoes seeing you coming!!

That beer Cindy will not add an ounce. I had a bomber of West Coast Imperial IPA last night (in theory 560 calories) plus 2 gin and tonics.

Am I worried? Nope. Down 0.6lbs today.

Beer does not add weight. Food does. So drink, don't eat and all will be good.

That's the Ian way. And I like to think my numbers speak for themselves!

I'm feeling like some 180s Sue!!!
