Welcome to the Challenge!

It turned out the scale was playing with me. I'm only down .9 this week + 3 days. Blah.

WormwoodDoll: Wow, that's more than I'm doing!

WOW, i have almost the exact same goal - my birthday is july 12th and I was hoping to break 150 by then. and i weigh around 172 now too. let's work at it together! lol

i've decided that i'm not going to weigh myself for at least a month so i'll just go by the looseness of my clothes. hopefully it will be more satisfying to see the scale drop by a larger amount in a month!

in response to the discussion about exercise- i agree that strength training can be very helpful. the more muscles that you have, the more calories your metabolism burns throughout the day. i've been going to the gym every morning, and i do cardio for about 20 minutes, stretch and do abs for about 10 minutes, then strength training for about 20 minutes. it's working great!

Thanks for the encouragement, syncrosweetie88. But I have great news. I was sore on those other days and weighted more. I checked today (not sore) and I'm down 2.1 altogether. That'll teach me to step on the scale on my sore days. I think I'm going to do myself a favor and not check again for a while.

Thanks for that bit about excersice! I will try that at the gym. I tend to do just 30-60 mins of cardio and then some abs, but maybe I will try 45 minutes of cardio, 10 of abs, and then strength traning.

I'm really blowin' it this weekend. Friday I went over my calorie intake by 90 calories because I just had to have a few more bites of ice cream. Saturday I doubled that. Today I had a five guys little burger and fries 'because why the **** the not, i've already blown it '. Ugh I have no self control! And this is after I was able to put on a pair of size 16 jean shorts that I haven't worn since 2004! I think I need to start again fresh by restricting some trigger foods.

I'd like to lose 10 lbs before summer!
I've been falling off the bandwagon lately and loosly counting my calories which is not good.

I need structure to really succeed. So the plan is to start using the daily plate again and work out atleast 3 x's a week again!

Hey ladies. Sorry I haven't been on! I was in Pittsburgh for a year days without internet access and I have been really busy at home.

I am down to 201.1lbs! I have lost 4lbs this past week.

Sunkisses - Don't beat yourself up. Just get up and do it again! It is really hard to get over the "I already blew it, so why not do more damage" mentality. You're not the only one, I've done this PLENTY of times!

I'm finally down a lb... That's 1/6 for my goal; 5 to go. Even though it IS really slow, I'm experiencing a bit of a "hallelujah" moment in knowing that I can still lose weight, while I'm at a lower weight, and do it on higher calories than I lost the majority of my weight on before. I'm in no hurry anymore, so that's absolutely awesome. I just have to take it 1 lb at a time.

Sunkisses - I'm sure almost all of us have done that at some time or another before. The important thing is to not dwell on it, put it behind you, and act like it never happened. You can do it
