I already signed up for the new challenge. I also do better when I am in one, so I am glad that they are close together too. I saw 274 again this morning. YAY! Let's see if I can see 273 by Monday! I hope everyone is having a great week! I am super busy, but I wanted to say hi!

Only a few days left of the challenge! Come on Red Team!

I can't decided whether to sign up for the next challenge or not! What should I do?

Okay, moving on......How many of you ladies are going to join us for a new challenge? Do you have a starting goal? I REALLY REALLY want to be 160 for the start. At 160 I will have lost 10% of my weight three times (so maybe that is a wierd number for a goal, but I'm SO close! I can lose 5lbs in 3 1/2 weeks, right?). Then I hope to make my new challenge goal to be to lose another 10% (which would be 16lbs). I'm so glad these challenges are close together, I didn't do to well between challenges this summer.
I feel like this ALL the time. I am over halfway to goal (well goal may change but nontheless) and I still feel like a fatty a lot of the time. I am doing my best to celebrate what I have accomplished and focus on what is left as well so I don't end up feeling sorry for myself. I am determined to get to goal in 2009.

I of course am going to be in the new challenge. My goal for the end of the month is 170 so I guess that would be about the same for the 5th That is 6 pounds away and with the holidays I am hoping I can make it there. My challenge goal is going to be 150 (maybe lower once I get close and see what 150 looks like). It is so weird to think I am 26 pounds from goal. I am pretty sure I am going to drop my goal weight because I can't see all of this excess tummy, hips and butt going away in 26 pounds.

Hey Reds. Just popping in really quick to say hi. I am still alive. Sort of. Busier than a one armed paper hanger. And I have to go to the Valley, tomorrow. Ack! I am hoping for a let up, soon.

I hope everyone is having a great week. And great results.

I have already signed up for the new challenge. I don't know about setting a goal, I never seem to hit one. My body is really wierd and lose weight unlike anybody else I know. It comes off so painfully slow. I found myself crying the other day looking at Fitness magazine. It seems so easy for some people to lose weight. Some ladies lost about 100 pounds in a year. I know that's a lot, but still. I just get depressed from time to time that I can't lose quicker.

All that complaining aside, I will have to think hard about a realistic goal for the next challenge. As of today I am still 199.6 and I should be losing as TOM is rolling through. See what I mean?

Hi guys! Well, I had some stuff going on and totally missed last weigh-in as well as being MIA around here, but I'm still rooting for everyone to stay on track and win this thing! I am back on track hopefully also, and hope to finish this year strong! And I WILL get out of these 180's by Jan. 1st!!!

Armywife--gorgeous! Love the red dress!! AND your hair!

cakses--WTG on being a team captain!! You will be a great one, I am sure! And congrats on hitting that goal already!!

bethbeth--of course you should sign up, the effort at least gets you motivated and starts you off with definite goals to try for. Even if life gets too busy, I think it is a worthy exercise to attempt......

Monte--I know what you mean. Some days I look in the mirror and think I look pretty good, then other days I just look so fat! It really is crazy what our minds are telling us sometimes......

blueyedlvrgrl---wtg on the good scale numbers staying there!! You are doing fantastic now!

mtiger--hang in there! I lose very slowly also, and in very inconsistent spurts. Frustrating as heck, but no way do I want to backslide and do this all over again.......

retiredone--I resolve to not gain anything either for the last 20 days of this month!!

Beth - You should definitely join! What could be the downside?!?

cakses - I know what you mean about changing goals. I dropped mine from 145 to 136 in the last month or so. I just didn't think my body would be the way I wanted it at my first goal. Of course, things may change again as I move along.....

mtiger - I haven't met my weightloss goal for a challenge yet. But every time I have lost a significant amount (first 15lbs, and it looks like 12 or so this time). I just like to pick a nice sounding number, but then it doesn't really bother me if I don't make goal. Maybe you should try something more scientific? Maybe look back and see how much weight you lost over this challenge, and then decrease it by a pound or so (because weightloss gets harder the closer you get).

Yay, I hope everyone signs up again. 5 pounds, 50 pounds, 100+ pounds it's all important to be recognized for our efforts and these challenges have been great!

Last challenge I quit and I weighed more than my starting weight by the time it was done. I was determined to not let that happen again!

Saw 175 today which is awesome. That's 45 pounds total lost for me. I am excited to see what happens now that a large bulk of my fat is gone and what sort of shape I take. I never thought I would be able to get into a size 6 or 8 again, and I am already a 12 so it is looking good for me. I have a very good friend's wedding in July that I am a bridesmaid in and I want to look awesome by then so I am going to be working very hard in 2009!

I feel like that picture of the cat hanging on to the rope. I am holding on to my sanity by a thread. I am so stuck at this weight and it is really getting me down. I don't know what more I can do. If something doesn't give soon, I may lose my grip on sanity.

Hi girls!! I am happy to say that the weight is on the way back out the door. I've lost everything that I gained the last few weeks!

Cakses, congrats on taking on the role of leader of the red team next go round!

Mandey, you look absolutely stunning in the red gown!!

I miss you girls and I'm sorry I didn't partake as much towards the end of the challenge I promise to be a better team mate in the next round.

Good morning RED team! Looks like nobody's here this morning. All you all out exercising or Christmas shopping?

This morning I did Level 2 of the 30DS, then cleaned house for an hour or two and then did Level 1. I thought Level 1 might be a little tough since I haven't done it in over a week, but it was pretty easy...I could do the whole thing. Now my count is back on track- Today is December 13th and I have done the Shred 13 times so far this month. Here we go to 30!

Our last weigh in is due on Monday! Don't quit now!

Hi my fellow reds. I'm pretty sure I'm disqualified because I don't know if I've been posting everyweek or not... probably not. But, I still want to say that thank you!!! I found it quite difficult to keep up with all the posts. I haven't decided if I want to participate in the next challenge, if I do, I'd love to be red again, but I guess I might not get dibs!!! (DOH!) Just know that you all really helped me get through bad days and I appreciate all the support!!!! So thank you!! One more weigh in!! GO RED!!!!

Mtiger, please don't lose your grip. You've lost over 50 pounds already and you know that you will eventually lose more.

I had a great weigh in this morning. I guess where I didn't lose anything last week I caught up this week with a 2.5 pound loss. I have finally broken into the 130s.

We had our Church Christmas concert tonight and what a relief it is to be finished. It was, if I do say so, a wonderful program with great singing. Everyone really enjoyed the program and stayed afterwards for refreshments. I had a couple of cookies and a hot chocolate and a few crackers. It was actually not bad as it was my supper. I don't eat before a concert (on account of unwanted burping in the middle of a solo or duet). So a little lunch following is really welcome.

I feel free as a bird but I do have a lot of cleaning up to do. The tree is up but there is a path of destruction through the living room. Tomorrow had better be a long day because I have lots of work to do and some relaxing is in order too.

Catch you all later.

I had so wanted to post a nice loss on our last weigh-in. At this point it looks like I could end with a gain. I am so frustrated I can't think straight. As a last resort I am going to try upping my calories to 1500. I don't know if that will work. Nothing else has. Well, wish me luck.

Retire- Thanks for the encouragement. I really need it right now. I am feeling bad enough as it is, and then last night we had our staff Christmas party. I was sitting nest to my best friend when a retired teacher started telling my BF how skinny she looked. Not a word to me. My BF is great because she turned to me and said "How much have you lost now Mindy?" Are you serious!! People don't even notice? I have got to get out of this slump. So, thanks again!!!
