Morning.

Kris, you do not want to have to quit again. I have been thinking about smoking again lately too. That is the thought that scares me.

W 100
E Crunches, walk at lunch, elliptical?
E OP
D I am worth it.

Kris - When I quit smoking it was on & off for about a year. My final time I quit I did everything. Step down patch, wellbutrin (brought in the dr for support), meditation, gave up coffee (for awhile only) & gave up friday nites out with hubby (this is where I would pick up again) and signed a contract with my daughter that I would quit. It's just as tough (if not tougher) than losing weight. I have not smoked in 10 years and can forget that I did. Hang in there and don't give up - I don't even think about smoking anymore! It's not a part of who I am at this time. Now if I can do this with eating and exercising.

Yesterdays WEED - on track except for exercise - why I have such a hard time getting out there and walking for 20 minutes - I'm somewhat embarrassed - it's not so much the exercising but going out. Today I will do it.

Todays -
W - 32 oz
E - portioned meals
E - walk for 20 min
D - Believe!!!!

Running so late this morning, but I'll be back around noon or so to update. Good weekend, but Chinese food last night, small portion, but still. I actually saw a lower number Friday, but that's okay, no rush. It's still a BIG loss. Plus I'm pretty sure that 256 original weigh in was really bloated, coming off a two week binge.

I am so up for that challenge, let's throw in 15 crunches. so 12 squats and 15MMunches. Deal.

Be back later. Love to all oxoxoxo Michelle

Hi Gals, I'm in for this challenge. I've been off plan for about 3 weeks, but not too badly, only gained 3lbs. I would really like to get to Onederland by Halloween. That's less than a pound a week, so seems reasonable to me!

W 48 oz (drank 1/2)
E OP 1500 cals (yes)
E Walk the dog 1 hour (45 min)
D Find a pleasure other than food. (Had my nails done)

Morning ladies!
I'm gonna shoot for a 10 lb loss by halloween.

This past weekend i was very busy with a pajama party friday night, graduation saturday, and then the game yesterday. I was so tired and went to bed with a headache (it hasn't quite gone away) so I didn't do much of anything this past week. I am glad to be back in a challenge though.

I'm shooting for 5 walks, 2 resistance trainings this week. I want to get back to a c25k routine....may not be as fast as I used to be but I will do my best. Last time I tried it I couldn't make it thru the first workout...i ended up walking the rest of it off, hubs was worried b/c "you shouldn't be breathing THAT hard!!!!!"

Speaking of hubs, he's got some weight to lose by the end of the month.....so we're eating healthy.

Eating healthy....would you believe he enjoyed the low cal ball game snax yesterday? He actually said the hot wings I made were the best i'd ever made....so i'm happy

Ok i gotta run off to work......let's hope I don't lose my mind today. Friday was bad enough at the office...and my fortune cookie friday night said i'd be having a good change with work. I think the only good thing that could happen with work is if they let me go LOLOL

So I went out and walked over a mile this morning. And when I got back I received a call for an interview next week. Good place and hoping it goes well. Then my temp service called with a position and an interview this afternoon via phone. Maybe I'll be working soon! I'm so excited I'm exhausted!!!

Nix & MM- Think of what you went through quitting before you smoke again. Works for me. I have a friend who is in quit mode now- suffer city.

JCat- Your post last night about avoiding the "stinkin thinkin" is what I'll need when I lose the motivation. You're right- the scales are not our only measure of success and we need to think health!

Holy- So glad you're back.

Cheers to all!

Kickboxing last night was fun. I had forgotten how nice it is to exercise with other people. At least by paying to take classes I know that I`ll exercise at least three times a week!

WEEK 1: the week of the Bat: 256.5 Where did that come from??? I was 181.2
WEEK 2: the week of the Ghost: 181.2
WEEK 3: the week of the Vampire:
WEEK 4: the week of the Jack-o-Lantern:
WEEK 5: the week of Frankenstein:
WEEK 6: the week of the black cat:
WEEK 7: the week of the zombie:
WEEK 8: the week of witch:
WEIGH OUT, Saturday, October 31st...TRICK? OR TREAT?

What was I doing in week one. I have no idea where 256.5 came from. I had to laugh.
As you can see though, I have had absolutely no change. What is up with that.

Jeni- I am going to chant your mantra. I will not get upset, I will not beat myself up, I will stay positive, this too shall pass. Must keep putting these thoughts in my head.

Nix- You know what I'm gonna say. Get it together girl. you know you don't need that crap.

P.S. I figured it out. When I copied the weeks from someone elses post, I also copied their weight. LOL!!!

Hi everyone! I wont get to personals tonight, sorry.

Amy congrats on graduation! I've missed you and glad you are here!

Thin! It so good to see you!

MM~please don't start smoking again I've never had to quit but I have been through it with my mom and dad.

Michelle, Ok I will see your crunches and do them tonight, my squats are done. Congrats on the loss!

Lilli, I'm like that sometimes. When I lose the motivation its mostly the motivation to go to the gym, not to workout. I'm glad you got in a walk today! Good luck with your job interview.

Kris, lets look forward to an amazing week! you have to take the time to take care of yourself.

Ja! My motivation~control diabetes~be fit and slim~stay alive so I can celebrate MY 55th anniversary. (DH's grandpa went into cardiac arrest shortly before his 55 anniversary, luckily he survived and is much healthier now, so am I and DH)

onestar~we have to link our healthy lives into our fun lives As long as the fun doesn't go on 24/7 I am glad you had fun.

AH GRAZER~the $$ motivation! good for you. I want to try kickboxing, but the class is at 730pm. AWSOME LOSS BTW~

Ok so no personals Oh well. I guess I had more time than I thought. I'm really tired tonight I plan on sleeping in tomorrow and going to the gym at 830. Today has been great food wise, not going to the gym tonight because my body is just worn out. Tomorrow is going to be interesting swim lessons start and they will be late nights.

In the words of Homer Simpson "mmmmmmmmm. BEER." I love beer and baseball and hot dogs at a game are the glue. We need to cut loose OCCASIONALLY so dont kick yourself. Plus I can't image you drank all four yourself. One was probably mine, then of course one for Mtiggie and Nchellie too... so really YOU only had one. Right? Am I right? HELLO?

Ja ~ if that is you in your avatar, I will trade you 2 love handles, a case of cellulite and 12lbs of back fat for one of your abs. Just one! You in?

Mavie, Grazie, Jen - I ran outta steam. Luv ya all none the less... whooo!
