My non-official scale says I'm down 1.5 pounds!

Of course, once my mom gets up so I can go raid her bathroom with the "official" scale, I'll be able to be more certain, but I certainly FEEL like I should have lost 1.5 pounds, as sore as my legs are!

This challenge is really motivating me to get up off my butt and do something.

Wow, I would love to see 15 pounds gone by 12/31. That would make me 238 <gasp> I cannot fathom it. But I am on track. My goal in my head WAS 245 by New Years but I bet I can lose 15. Yeah, I can do it

YOU CAN DO IT!

We can ALL do it, if we lean on each other and work together!

Monday is weigh-in. Even though I haven't even had a full week of being OP, as I just started, I still plan on hitting the scale. I know what I weighed today, and I just want to see that number be down by then.

Tomorrow is my day-off, in terms of exercise. Sundays are going to be my only "off" days, and I'll still be doing my stretches and some yoga and whatever else I feel like. Just no dreadmill; I think my calves are going to implode if they have to get on the dreadmill tomorrow.

I might just see how it goes. If I feel like it, I'll do it.

Is it too late to join in?

I need to jump start losing weight again I was doing great before but have slacked so bad. I've got to get back on south Beach diet. I want to lose 20lbs by the new year. I'm gonna do my offical weigh in tomrrow morning and make Sunday my weigh in day so I don't cheat on the weekends. Ans also since I'm getting back on this wagon.

Nelie thanks glad it's not too late.

I'm gonna do Weight Watchers plan. Since after two weeks with South Beach you add carbs back. I just need to watch them I can do this. I weighted in this morning so my start weight is 289 YUCK! I'VE GAINED 11LBS BACK GRRRRRR. That's ok it's coming off for good this time. I'm writing everthing down I eat.

Same here. I was planning on using the goal as the reason to step up my exercise intensity but recently injured a knee ligament so now I'm doing my best WITH NO EXERCISE. (it's driving me nuts)

Anyways, I'm in. I need some accountability

Ugh, looks like I may be going at this without exercise too for a while.

I found out this morning that my doctor is wanting me to hold off on exercise until I can get under 240, because I have a bad knee, as well as because of my cancer history.

So I'll just have to be extra diligent and find some ways of sneaking in exercise other than the dreadmill, until he clears me.

I've been reading this one and the xmas one for a while and wanting to join... but know as soon as I put it out there that somehow my body is going to stop co-operating and my weight won't move! However... I'm going to be conservative with my 'hopeful' aim of getting into the 60's kgs... jee 69.9kg by end of the year would do me! currently 75.4 so only (hah only!) about 12lbs to lose. Finding that the weight loss is slowing down slightly nowadays though... ho hum

Congrats on your loss!

This morning I was out of the 260s for the first time in YEARS, and I'm going to do my best to stay there.

Alright well the weekend away was a blast. We carved abut 20 pumpkins and then dragged them to town and registered them for the festival in a big shopping cart... we are the biggest geeks ever. The festival was a success, we didn't beat the most recent world record but hey, it's still pretty cool to be surrounded by 25,000+ lit jack o' lanterns. I ended up spending the night, mainly cause I deemed it the safer option rather than get on the road with 80,000 people half of which I'm sure had been drinking all day. And...well... I met a boy....it's strange we've shared the same circle of friends for close to 10 years and our paths have never crossed. We'll see... I kind of like this one so I think pursuit is necessary!

I took the day off of work today (mental health day) and had a doctor appointment. I do have to say after you've come to the end of a long road battling off cervical cancer it's a huge relieve to go see the OB and have her say....well...everything looks normal. I went straight from there to the gym and now have come home to grab lunch before heading to the grocery store...I heard somewhere it's bad to shop when you're hungry . Weigh in day is approaching and I'm feeling very positive about it...well accept it's the same day TOM is scheduled to arrive but hey...what can you do.

I tell you, I think I may have been bit by the love bug and it's doing wonders for my motivation

Seriously! And on that note, I dropped into a new bracket.
