That's what scares me!!! I have quit in the past and thought I could be a "social" smoker. That didn't work out so good for me so of course I went right back to my old habits. I have worked so hard to lose almost 30 lbs. I don't want it back. Help!!!

I'm getting really really frustrated!!!! Last Friday morning, I was so excited to see the scale read 191.8!!!! It's so freaking close to being in the 180's!!!! 4th of July meant going to a friend's party, where I consumed much more alcohol than I have in a LONG time!!! Eating wasn't too off though....just lots of empty alcohol calories. The next morning I almost cried when the scale had jumped up to 199.8!!!!!

I have been going to the gym religiously since Monday morning, working out longer than normal, and the scale had moved down bit by bit, but it's still reading 195.2. I was at 195 for like 2 months and had FINALLY gotten out of that funk. I can't be back there again. GRRRR!!!

2 more hikes, at least.

At least 7 pounds gone. I've been losing about a pound a week, so that should be doable.

Keep tracking food (which as become a habit now, and easier with the Sparkpeople iPhone App)

Keep up with the yoga and biking and weight training to hopefully result in the vanishing of the weird right knee pain/weird feeling.
Tracking all my meals so far, and yoga every day with weight training 3 days a week. Planning on a hike this weekend.

I go to the gym about 3 times a week, but probably need to change that up.

Thanks for any help on the calories!

Great job everyone so far!!

Update on me....

*130lbs (I may be happy with 135, however. Dh thinks 130 may be to "skinny", so we'll see what I look like at 135, I have a very small frame, so think 130 is good, but who knows! Haven't been that for a while..)

Still my goal...

*strength training/toning 5x week (15-20 min sessions)

Just started this today.. But now i'm planning on doing *something* weight/toning related at least 5x week!

*Keep on exercising daily. (Any kind of exercise!!)

I'm running for 35 minutes a day... I may do this 3-4x week, and an exercise DVD a couple times a week too...

*Keep on with healthy & clean eating.

Going well.. i've upped my calorie level, so far, so good I think...

Lost 1 1/2lbs since we started this challenge.. hoping that picks up though... i'm not usually a 'slow' loser... guess we'll see!

Hey peeps!

My internet was down yesterday for the whole day, and it looks like I missed a LOT! Will just jump in here, and not go mental trying to catch up. I did catch up on reading all the posts, though, and want to say to all our new challengers!

Exercise is done, heavy deadlifts today. I needed a break from all the killer workouts this week, so I was glad for the change. Tomorrow will be another "killer, oxygen-deprived, sweaty, lying on the floor after the workout" day, but it's the day before rest day, so it will be fine. Monday the gym is closed, but my boy (he is 12) has already volunteered to train me that day. He says we're heading up to the school yard, to see if I can get my kipping pull-up. How cute is that boy?

Let's see...the boy's cat, the one with the mucky eye, is doing better. He had some kind of abcess/infection thing going on, but I can't afford the "veterinary opthalmologist" my vet suggested, so we went with plan B, which was to give him a shot of serious antibiotics, then I bought a few prednizone tablets, to keep the antibiotics working a little longer, or better, something like that. The swelling is way down, and his eye looks almost normal today, plus he's eating and drinking normally, so I'm hopeful that the treatment is going to work.

Update on the Challenge and my goals:
Well, first time I've set a weight goal in a long time, and all my weight did was go up, lol! I've been stuck in 171-land for a week. TOM finally showed up today, though, so hopefully, the higher weight was just the usual pre-TOM bloat, and I'll start to see some better numbers on the scale now. I'm pretty close to my goal, so I don't expect record weight loss, but I'm trying hard to do better than 2 lbs a month!

Haven't made much progress on my other goals, but am working on them. Often, the workouts at my gym just shred my shoulders and/or my grip, so it's hard to work on either the handstands or the pull-ups. I did scope out some youtube videos late last night, to try and get some ideas on the handstand kick-up, so I will try some of those ideas, to see if they help any.

With a small frame you would fall into that weight category. Click the image below

Hi Everyone! I've stuck to the game plan the past 2 days with the exception of last night's dinner. It wasn't terrible but could have been better.

It's a beautiful day so i plan on swimming and yoga today. Later, Paul McCartney is playing an outdoor concert and I'm lucky enough to have VIP seats!! Pretty excited about that and I will be having a few drinks and snacks outside on a Halifax patio in a few hours, preshow.

I started clipping magazine pictures to make a vision board. I ended up with a ton of healthy looking food, fit people, tennis and running shots, yoga, and beach-y type clips. It wasn't done with the intention of motivating weight loss but it looks like it will. Has anyone every made a vision board for weight loss before? How did it look, and did it help?
