Lumi - I have good news for you - Chrsitmas is 28 weeks away(you had said 26) so that means that you have to lose #.57 a week. In order to hit my goal of #163.6 I have to lose #1.14 a week - How about we keep eachother motivated and GOING STRONG through this!!! When do you weigh in? Mine's every 2 mondays for my Family challenge - but I'll do it more if it will help you stay on track! Let's see if we can hit our goals EARLY!!!! (then we can buy a slinky Christmas number BEFORE the tree comes down! )

Haley - WTG on the bike riding! That's awesome! Keep it up - rain or shine! Put a poncho in your backpack if necessary!

Remember: If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

Yikies! 26 weeks?
Assuming I didn't gain this week (and I just KNOW that I did) I would have to lose 1.38 pounds per week (or so) to get to my "just overweight" goal. I'm thinking it's not gonna happen. At this point, though, I'll be thrilled as heck if I make it to my pre-pregnancy weight by Christmas which is only 12.8 pounds from last week's weigh in and (again, if I didn't gain) just about half a pound a week. THAT is far more likely to happen! We'll see tonight how much I have to make up for from this past week. Luckily the weather has been a lot better the past 2 days so I've been able to take John out in the stroller for a bit and today restocked my supply of Phase One favorites for South Beach so I can be super-devoted/determined girl again. ALSO luckily, Tom has been plowing through the leftover cupcakes in the fridge from the party to the point where we only have a couple left -- he and John can have those tomorrow for John's ACTUAL birthday and I'll have ... a sugar-free fudgsicle or something "legal."
So, 26 weeks til Christmas ... 52 weeks til John turns 3 ... and THOSE party pictures are going to ROCK!!!

It could have been so much worse.



I gained just like I knew I would, but at least I kept the damage to under 3 pounds. That's something, right?

Morning all, I gained this week too. Bloat city and no excuse, rings are tight, pants are tight.

Anyway, I am taking care of that and next week I will be further down and by 7/1, I will be below 145. Can't wait, must focus!!

Already today, I have gone for a 2 mile walk/run, just got back and did AbJam, I do better when I exercise first thing, then I don't want to blow it for the day.

I have to be to work by 10 today, it's my late day to work until 6. So off to the shower I go, great job to those that showed a loss. To those like me that didn't, that's ok, we aren't gonna lose every week, but let's turn it around for next week!

Hey everyone, never did check in after my good day on Tuesday. I finished the day strong; going out to dinner I ordered a portabella sandwich and nibbled a little bit of other people's food so I could have a taste of meat without going overboard.

Been a weird few days weight-wise. Wednesday I was down 2 lbs to 191, Thursdays I was down another three to 188, and today I'm back up two pounds to 190. I just want my TOM to be done with so things will settle down a bit. Of course, I really should try not to weigh every single day, I don't want to get obsessive about it.

Oh, and exercise is easier again between the heatwave breaking and the air conditioning being fixed (we hope! hard to tell yet). I'm still gonna walk up to the gym about a mile from me though, and check em out.

28 weeks left... I've got to lose about a pound a week at that rate, a bit less. I think I can manage that, it seems to be about what I'm managing on average so far. Time will tell!

Karen, I'm so glad to see the damage was not too bad - less than three pounds is not bad at all, you can fix that no problem!

Good morning everyone. Well I lost 3 pounds. It feels like I lost 10 though. I feel so much better. Now, what I am going to try really hard to do is stay focused each day and not try an overthink everything. The first week is historically easy for me. It's when I am most excited, motivated etc. My true test will be when things aren't going well. Will I still post or will I go into hiding? I am so impressed and grateful to see people sharing their feelings when everything isn't perfect. I tend to withdraw and sulk and be alone....a very dangerous place for me. So, I am just trying to tell you all thank you for being so real. It is what I needed to see, and I hope to shrink physically and grow emotionally!

Just saw this tread today. Count me in!! I want to be down 60 pounds by Christmas. That is 10 pounds a month, so far that is what Ihave been averaging. I know it is a lofty goal...but if I stay on plan and keep exercising regularly I can do it!!!

Kate - #60 is a lofty goal - just keep working at it! We're here to support you 100%!

Haley - actually I found it on some website - and LOVE it - so I passed it along. It was claimed to be an anontmous quote - so feel free to use where ever

Betsi - weight varies a TON day-to-day, especially during TOM. Try to stay off the scale for awhile and it won't haunt you!

362638 - STICK WITH US!!!! My first week is generally easiest for me to stick with it too - right now I've made it through 12 days straight of working out and eating right! THAT'S A RECORD FOR ME!!!! Just keep going!!!

enygirl....that's a great idea!! I usually weigh in on Fridays...but we can do mondays....it doesn't really matter. Thank goodness, 28 weeks left instead of 26. whew!! I know half a pound a week doesn't seem impossible...i just gotta stick to my guns on eating healthy. And the gym is back on next week. Just talked to my boss and told her i would not be working any overtime next week. I may try to come in on saturday if she wants, but not during the week.
