My top 3 goals for April 10, 2011

1. Be 175 or less: this would put me 15lbs from goal (may go less well see)
2. Exercise min 4x's week - 30 min: this would make me stronger and happier with myself
3. To learn to be happy with myself no matter what: this would be the ultimate goal no matter what weight I am at (wasn't happy at 162 either) I am a work in progress and really want to find out how to be happy with myself I am my own worst enemy.

My three goals for the rest of this challenge are:
1. Be at least 5 lbs lighter. I really want to be on my way out of the 180's. It would give me the motivation to continue, as right now I am starting to doubt myself.
2. Continue to workout at least 6 days a week. This will help me shape my body to the body I want.
3. Not weight related but I need to find my drive for school again. I am starting to slack and I can't figure out why my drive is going down (for everything lately).

Congrats to our biggest losers!

My three goals:

1) to be in the 160's. I've been in the 170's for a long time, I'd really like to make it the 160's and not look back.
2) Focus on my eating. It's the part I struggle with the most, to be able to get that on track would be a huge success for me.
3) Learn to accept the compliments that are handed to me. It seems every time people start noticing my hardwork, I slide into old habits and undo all that I've worked so hard for.

Congrats to river our Biggest Loser!!!

Great job honorable mentions Selina, Bigmid, and Kimberly!!!!

Also congrats to ---
Bobbi for losing .4lbs and breaking plateau!!
sandlll for losing 1.6lbs!!
spryng for losing 1.2lbs!!
gvntofly for losing 1lb!!
Dora for losing 1.4lbs!!
Matilda for losing 2lbs!!
Page and Mercy for maintaining!!!

Congrats everyone else for not giving up!!

My top 3 goals for April 10, 2011
1) Be in the 2teens - Sadly I haven't been that low since middle school.. it would feel so amazing!
2) Never post a gain! I get scared around Auntie Flow time.. but I can beat her (I hope) haha
3) Be patient. Sometimes I want the weight gone so bad, I think about unhealthy crash diets... They never worked for me before, and eating a healthy 1,300 calories a day average + exercise is working better than they ever did. I would have binged, and quit a crash diet weeks ago.

Good luck this week team, keep it up!!

Congrats to all the Losers!!!

Well I at least lost a pound last week! I ended up getting a bad sinus infection. It started last Tuesday and I am still having sinus issues now. I have finally gotten my energy back and I can now breath through my nose again. I wasn't able to work out like I wanted too, but now I can get back on that.

My top three goals for the rest of the challenge are:
1. Be 180 or less at the end!
2. Do some form of exercise each day!
3. Not to buy or prepare any unhealthy foods and no more eating in front of the TV!

Congrats Blue team!

Wow, I'm the biggest loser this week. I'm thrilled. I have been up and down the same few pounds for months but this is the first time I've seen 155 and 154 for a long time, more than a decade in fact. Glad I weighed in at 154 again today, I was worried it was a one hit wonder yesterday.

My 3 goals for the rest of the challenge:

1) Continue my half marathon training injury free, and run it in a time of 1:59 or faster
2) 148 or less
3) Enjoy myself while traveling, embrace life and my loved ones and have fun on the journey

Whoo Hoo Bloo!!!!

Great job everyone, but especially our BL River and HM Selina, Jacky and Kimberly

Such great goals listed here I'd like to co-opt them for myself, but here are my very own:

1 - Be in the 220's, or 6 more pounds in 5 weeks, I think thats doable. Important to reach a specific goal and I haven't been down to this weight for a long time. And . . . I have more clothes to wear in this size.
2- Be exercising regularly, ie., 5 times a week at least - important because I know I will look better at the end of this journey, but more importantly will feel better.
3- To keep my mindset that this is a long-term journey, not an overnight success. (You over 100# losers really encourage me in this area.) Important because I tend to get either a) discouraged and want to give up or b) start thinking I'm doing better than I really am - and want to give up. Either way, I don't want to give up this time!

I finally exercised for an hour last night - Whoot! Did the WATP 4 mile walk, plus 50 situps and 25 butt squeezes (Jane Fonda). It felt great and the beginning of a new relationship with exercise.

Here's to another winning week!

Dora

That is my goal for the Race 13.1 Valpo Half Marathon in Valparaiso, IN on Nov. 13, 2011! Once I finish my 5k training and can run for 30 minutes at a time, I will start 10k training, then on to half marathon. I'm very excited, it's going to be a big year for me in upping my fitness level!

My top three goals for the rest of the challenge are:

1. Get below my start weight for this challenge (I think I'm the only one of the blue team members still in the challenge that is above their starting weight). I don't normally do weight goals, but . . .
2. Just re-joined the Y so I plan to go to Zumba two nights a week and workout at least 3 mornings (even if it's just 30 minutes on the treadmill)
3. No late night (carbohydrate) snacking.
