to all the new ladies! Post often and join in the madness so we all get to know you.

It's taken me forever to decide this month, with two weeks on vacation, what's reasonable while still ambitious, doable without stressing me out...it's stressing me out!! So I decided on losing 8lbs to hit 178lbs instead of 10 like usual to give myself some room since I can't exercise 3x a day while at my in laws, that would be anti-social

Delphi - I love your goal this month, I've been doing that too, trying to maintain 7000cal exercise deficit each week but I love the idea of making it official cuz when I don't do it, I'm not that concerned about it, but if it were a goal...maybe next month I'll copy you since I won't know my exact calories for two weeks. Always so smart you are.

Tummy ~ You know, I love the accountability we have with our threads. I know I can do it, I just have to work for it. I plan on posting my deficit every day with my first morning post as well or at night when I record it. We shall see, but knowing I have to do that will ensure I will make it.

to all you new gals. I look forward to getting to know you ladies and being as uber supportive as my cheerful self can be. Good to see so many new faces.

FSA ~ Thanks for keeping up with everything. I know the transition between months gets hectic, so just wanted to say thanks...you're a peach.

FullSteamAhead - Thanks for comiserating!
Delphi Thanks for the warm welcome!

I did my first shopping for food stuff last night - eating out is so challenging and I'm not great with temptation

I am thinking about joining a gym - where I live it's over 100 degrees daily and doesn't cool off much at night. If I do join you'll see me in the exercise challenge as well. Some of your goals are really impressive! I'm actually in horrible shape so I'll keep mine low until I get back into the game.

I make a promise to you all that I won't eat anything fattening for the rest of the day. I know it's not August yet, but I'm ready! I know if I promise here then I won't do it!

Thanks to all who post - this forum gives me something to do when I would otherwise be thinking about eating

I've got a few goals for various parts of the month:

No longer morbidly obese by Aug 7th

Reach 10% target by Aug 13

No Candy through August 21 (I started July 21)

And, hmm, lets say down to 255 by Aug 31

Hi everyone...just wanted to say that I will be joining you all and I'm actually coming back from being MIA for a few months... I don't even remember where i was at when i stopped but i was around the 150 mark... so my goals for august are to pick up my exercise routine that i havent done in a while either and to get my eating in order.. I'm also trying to cook at home more now...

let's see whats been going on with me... things havent been working out with the hubby...he moved out about a month and a half ago and i filed for divorce...but you know what i lost a lot of the stress in my life and realized that he was holding me back from everything... but more importantly i realzied that i didnt need him in my life because he didnt love me in the first place.. at least it only took me nearly three years of marriage to realize that and not any longer... i got a better paying job and am supporting my son who is just shy of a year and a half and i love him dearly and lets see what else is new... i signed up for a gym membership but the place isn't done being built yet so it should be a few weeks until it opens... so its time for me to kick it up a notch and get healthier.. and release all my tension and anxiety that way..

FSA - Please adjust me to lose 8lbs to hit 177lbs, my body just had one more July pound to get out of it's system today. Thanks.

NSM - I feel the same way, like do ppl really weight in the 140's or the 130's even? It's like big foot. I have a feeling someone is going be seeing those 160's soon enough too.

UrthWurm - So glad to have you, it's such a wonderful thread for accountibility when we post regularly b/c these ladies are supportive but also tell it to ya straight, it's invaluable.

bbee - I would definitely say hit that exercise thread, it's all about moving it for sure and it's a great place to get ideas for how to torture, *ahem* I mean improve ourselves

Delphi - I totally agree, the shame I would feel if I have to come here and confess to food transgressions, it would be horrible. It's amazing what we've all accomplished here just by putting some kind of quantifiable goal to it. This is one powerful group of females!

MountainChick - I say join that gym, or workout at home with DVD's whatever it takes but get that body moving especially with 20lbs to lose, from what I've read it's all exercise at that point but I won't know, yet Welcome aboard! And watch out for NSM, she's not kidding!

Aclai - Awesome goals, morbidly is a horrible word that definitely has no business describing your weight and good riddance to it!

Princess - Welcome back! That is what I would call a happy sad story but it's all about finding our way in the world and what is best. What an adorable little guy too! Congrats on staying within 5lbs and during some obviously stressful times, that's commendable!

iamren - Welcome back!

Tomorrow's the day, gotta love a fresh start, let's bring our A game ladies.
