Yay lilmissbee you're doing great! I've been trying to think of a good August goal for myself. We're going to San Diego for a week to celebrate my brother in law's marriage and I plan on being a total beach bum. So perhaps "comfortable in a swimsuit" should be my august goal! Gotta firm my my thighs then!

Welcome mandylamy! I hope you enjoy your time here!

We'll, back up to 255 today. Grr! I did pretty terribly this weekend, ate too much crap and didn't drink enough water. I feel so dehydrated!

Horray to Feb being almost over! Woo!

I bought a new scale over the weekend, a little present to myself I guess. It's the Fitbit Aria scale. Set it all up and got on it this morning. Super disappointing. +2lb difference from my old scale to the new. I got off and on both like 10 times this morning to make sure. ARGH! (I refuse to change my ticker!)

I had a NSV anyway this weekend though - Shopping at Target, I tried on a mens XXL hoodie and it was WAY WAY too big. A 2XL something has never been THAT big on me before. I bought the hoodie in an XL. Hopefully that means it wont be too much longer until the XXL's ladies things fit me properly! Woo!

Sunday was a bit of a cheat day - Had a beer and some biscones and bacon jam (TO DIE FOR!) but stuck to the blackened chicken salad instead of the sandwich I would normally have. Also has some ramen for lunch. (hello sodium!)

Kailpea - When I got to work on Saturday I volunteered to be the "Fetch B!tch" with the specific intent on beating you in steps LOL! Just about 17,000 by the end of the shift It just about killed me to catch up to you!

Welcome Mandy! - Hope you have a short but enjoyable stay in this decade

lilmissbee - Woo! you're rocking it girl! Keep it up!

CharityMarie - Awesome that you have your list of goals set up! Such a good idea. I change my mind so often about those things... I'm calling my scale a reward for the ~ 10 lbs I've lost since the start of the year

January was great to me, I dropped 27 pounds! So far in February? 8 pounds. I know it's still awesome but I was hoping for 15 this month and now it looks like I won't clear 10. Probably setting my goals too high, going to try being happy with 2 pounds a week from now on, slow and steady wins the race, right?!

Hey everyone, sorry I don't have time for a real update (in which I ramble on and on endlessly about nothing in particular, LOL)

But today, I saw 257...again GRR...it's my fault though, but like I can't eat bad ONE day w/o getting set back a whole friggin' week?! I guess not. This week, I am determined to see 254 if it KILLS ME, you hear me if it KILLS ME (j/k, not really, but you get the drift). I'm in the gym 4 times this week, with 2 jogging days, I'M READY!

On the NSV side, I took out the 'ol tape measure just because (even though I plan to measure once a month and that will be next week) and I have lost inches EVERYWHERE! 1" in my waist, almost 3 inches in my thighs and almost 3 inches in my gut (which I measure seperately!) and 1.5" in my hips. THAT was enough motivation for me to keep going, scale be [email protected]!

Think healthy thoughts ladies! Ciao

Holy F****** crap you guys! Talk about weight fluctuation! So I weighed myself this morning and for 255. . . and then I decided to weigh myself again tonight and got 245.2. Its a brand new scale, and I checked it against my old one and it was correct! WTH? I know your weight fluctuates throughout the day. . .but 10 lbs? That's insane! Makes me think that maybe the 240's are in my reach!

CongratsSucre! I wish I had measured myself before I started trying to lose weight so I would have something other than the scale to base my progress on.

I'm yo-yoing in this decade. Each time I break away I go back up.

I need a good butt kicking!

2 freaking FIFTY SEVEN(.08) I got off and on a couple times to make sure. However. Scale be dammed,
I AM WEARING THE SIZE 18 JEANS AND I CAN BREATHE So scale, neener neener neener!! (we'll see if I can still breathe after lunch )



My car is in the shop this week, so I have a rental. And of course it has to be like the coldest week EVER (-30 felt like -40 this morning) and I MISS MY COMMAND START!!!! Running out to start the car at 6 am was a pretty brutal way to start the day. I have been spoiled by my command start and I am OK with that.

Anyway, I was happy to be right on plan yesterday. Measured every. single. thing. Busted my butt at the gym. Made it through W4D1 of C25K. My ankle is pretty tender today though, so today will be pretty relaxed.


RoxieK Oh man, I'm sure all of us here can relate! I know I have been in this decade for what seems like an eternity! You'll bounce outta here before you know it I have noticed a trend (best part about graphing your weight changes!) Mine seems to go like this



down, down, up, Up, down, up, down (long break!!!!) Up, Up, down, down, up, down up down!

kailpea Woo! You are SOO gunna be outta here long before me! Take some measurements now!!!!

SucreSucre Wowzers!!! You're doing awesome! that is a pretty dang fantastic NSV!!! Screw the scale!!!

CharityMarie DUDE!!! 8lbs is FANTASTIC!!!! You should be totally proud. The first bit always comes off the fastest, be proud! 2lbs a week is just the right amount to shoot for. And you'll notice that its not going come of steady... see graph above! Be patient and stick with it. It'll come off!

Grr. I bumped back up and have been teetering between 260 and 259 for days. I haven't cheated or done anything differently and I'm on my period, so I know it's not real... I'm due for a whoosh.

Keeping on keeping on. Going to my sister-in-law's house this evening to make a healthy dinner and work out with her.

I want to see 256... Screw you, Aunt Flo.

BUT NSV, I'm wearing a pair of jeans today that I haven't felt comfortable in for quite a while, and they fit just right... and my knee high black boots are loose enough to stuff my flared jean legs into.... Just a month ago I could barely stuff my LEGS into them.

So I refuse to get discouraged.
