Morning all. I'm feel a smidgen better than last night. I think I'm going to run to the store quickly...maybe not...before the snow. It is supposed to snow from 9am this morning till 9am tomorrow morning.....No gym again. And THat means probably not tomorrow either. THis stinks!!!!!!! On a good note, I will get some in at home. I'm gonna do my new resistance dvd or pilates Stability ball tape and some BCD's from the list. I hope everyone is having a good morning so far. BBL to check in.

Good Morning! I gotta go to the store again today too, snow supposed to hit here in a short while, they are calling for 6-10 inches...I'm so mad, I have been doing awesome, staying under 1200 calories a day, drinking 1 gallon of water PLUS 32 ounces seltzer...I'm under in carbs, fats, everything and I gained 2 pounds? I am NOT looking at the scale again until friday. I haven't exercised since Thursday, its hard with everyone home.

Melissa~Glad you are feeling better! Where do you live?

Jen~Saw the news about your hubby being home and the apartment, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Check in later have a great day everyone!

Looks like everyone is doing great on the challenge

I'm down another pound today so only 1.5 more until I make my St. Patrick's Day goal. Yey I know this is all going to slow down soon, but hopefully I'll be completely in the habit of exercising and eating better before it does.

It's snowing a bunch here, but so far nothing is sticking. Of course, it's supposed to get much worse over the next couple of days. I guess I better head off to eat breakfast now. It's still hard for me to get in the habit of eating first thing in the morning.

I hope everyone is having a good day!

Default Morning all....

Finally updated my weight tracker thingy down there at the bottom....I can't believe the progress that I have made in such a short time!

Okay, warning, going to get a little mushy here. Let me first say, that the support and encouragement that I have found here has been amazing, and I appreciate all of you ladies tremendously.

Second, I talked with my h last night when he got home from work, about a lot of things. We have decided to give it one more try. We are going to go back to church, and try to get into marriage counseling. We are also going to get honest with each other about things that bother us. I have to know, that if I walk out on him, that I have tried everything. So, there it is.

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great day. I know this is going to sound strange, but I envy you guys with the snow. Of course, I probably wouldn't feel that way if I lived where you lived. Take care all, bbl.

Good morning ladies!

Well this weekend Marty (10 mo) was sick all weekend long! Saturday night up three time, new bedding, new outfit and washup! Oh well! What are you going to do? The rest of them are all at school today. So maybe this will wind down somewhat. I have to congratulate all my fellow challengers, boy are you giving us a run for the money! Great job!!!

Mel-thanks for posting our standings! You certainly give us girls a great example and a carrot for keeping us motivated, have a great workout!

Chrissy- don't worry about those 2 lbs. they will come off! You are doing a great job!

Penny- you are doing a great job too! You are not very far away from goal, I hope this challenge lands you there!

Chelle- I also have trouble eating in the morning, I eat those meal replacement bars cause I don't think I could get in food and exercise in that early, UgH!

Well, all of you lovely moms, I hope you are having a great day on this last day of Feb, didn't it go by fast! Let's make this a March to remember! Go! Go!

Hi Tabby! You posted right before I did. You ARE doing great! WTG! Keep up the good job, are you almost off the sodas yet? That is really great that you are going to work at your marriage. If both of you work at it it WILL get better, it takes alot of effort. All of which is totally worth if when there are children involved! They love you both! I'll keep you all in my prayers.

Deana........HELLO................

Tabitha, I'm so glad that you and h are gonna try to work things out. you are right, you can't give up on it without giving it all you've got! Maybe when you go away overnight like you were talking about you can rekindle some flames....the good ones that is. I"ll pray for you!

Mel- you are making me feel bad for being such a bum today

For whatever reason, my stomach has decided to act up today. Every time I've started to exercise, I've had to rush to the bathroom. After the 4th time, I decided to stop punishing myself. I'm so afraid to give myself an excuse to slack off this early on, but I know I need to listen to my body on this or I'll end up being sick longer.
