I just realized I've only technically lost 2lbs for this challenge. I was at 207 last week and got down to 205 for this week. So I am re-starting and my goal will be to get under 200lbs right now. I really need to sort out some of my social eating problems that really interfered with my progress the last month and a half or so.

I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I am kind of annoyed. I lost 1 lb last week and according to the calories I ate and excercise I should have lost more. This is so frustrating! I hope everything is going better for everyone else.

That is irritating km25. When that happens to me I try to console myself by saying at least it was 1 lb rather than nuthin' ya know?

km25: at least you lost something. I haven't lost anything for a while now. I've actually GAINED. I'm so angry. I got really depressed and could barely exercise. I just did strength training today FINALLY. So discouraged

Angel - Keep your head up. I gained too. I got back to 205. I'm slowly getting down again. I'm at 203.7lbs with TOM. I feel terrible for being so out of control for two months. We'll make it.

WormwoodDoll, Angel's_Dust: I'm sorry about the gains. It's just frustrating in general when the scale is not going the way we want!! You guys are still down considerably from your starting weight, be proud.

Amynbebes: You are right. At least it's something...I hope more next week though!

Hi ladies! Wtg on your losses nommore and km!

It sounds like some of us are struggling a little bit this week. The scale has been bouncing around 209-211 for a week and a half which means I haven't lost anything. Although I haven't been totally strict on my diet (I haven't had anything very naughty except 1 homemade margarita), I have been exercising up to 3 hours some days 5-6 days a week. I even started taking more advanced kickboxing and step classes and upped my weights. I was blaming water retention all week, but now I don't know. It really is depressing me, and to top it off my dh has been a total weanie and just adding to my stress. My kids are just being kids, but for some reason I can't take it lately. I am just mentally drained. I hang out at the gym so I can get away, but when I am there, I just talk diets and exercise and that scale is there haunting me, too. Ugh I dunno how to get out of this funk!
If the scale hasn't moved by Monday, I don't know if I will reach my goal of 199 by the end of this challenge.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer guys. Hopefully I will be bursting with positivity on Monday when I check back in!

I finally am passed my low for this challenge. I weighed in today at 200.8!! There's about three weeks left, so I am hoping if I'm good, I can be at 195 for the challenge. Not quite 185, but what's done is done!

I haven't posted since entering in April (oops! sorry).

My beginning weight was 260. Current weight is 253. Down 7 big ones so far!

Goal is 10 pounds for the challenge. I couldn't exercise much for a few weeks because I was recuping from surgery and then caught some bug, but I am back in action now, so I hope to surpass my goal by a pound or two.

Congrats fellow losers, LOL!

I havent posted much since the challenge started, but, I set my goal high at 16lbs. and have lost 12lbs so far!!

Im way excited, and although I have ALOT of events coming up that might be cause for high calories or slip ups (both of my daughters' actual birthdays mean cakes, their big birthday party means more cake, my little sisters graduation means dinner out & cake, etc.) I will be SURE to be good and strict so I can keep losing and hopefully (fingers crossed) Ill make my goal!

Ill be checking in more now toward the end!

Congrats everyone who's losing!! I don't have much time to write this as I'm about to get ready to go out. I lost a bit more, which is surprising. I only exercised like 3x last week and I'm not really eating much because I have no appetite. Really bad. But something worked. Either that or the VERY hard strength training video I did a few days ago. I haven't exercised this weekend so far because I've been socializing too much. It's a friend's bday, so that equals partying. Oh well.

Slimmer by Summer! Yes, I can do this! I will be 16 pounds lighter by June 21.

I have lost 15, 1 more to go. That would make me 259. Since I have 3 weeks left, I hope to be down to 256, but I'm not going to re-set my goal because I want to feel really good about meeting one and waving bye-bye!

But I must say my weight is not sliding off as I hoped. I've been exercising 6x per week -- 2x strength training with a trainer and 4x cardio for 30 minutes. Maybe I need to go longer than 30 minutes? I do walking on a treadmill + recumbent bike. I'm not counting the water exercise I do 4-5x per week which seems rather wussy to me but fun and it can't hurt.
